Sealing-wax warn not used until 1113, when Louis VI sponsored it in France. Before that all letters and docu- ments were sealed with the impres- sion of a ring in clay. This device was superseded by the use of a lump of pitch, wax and plaster. Yellow beeswax was next used and was euc- ceeded by sealing-wax ]nixed with other substances. Ttds made a white, or nearly whlte.'seal. A century later red wax appeared and. some time after t!hat, green. Bil- lets-doux were next secured with yel- low. brown, rose and blue wax. Black also was used at this period, but was mostly employed by the religious or- ders. Wafers for seals were first used In italy and were brought to France by French army officers, who thus were tnstrunmntal in Introducing them to the rest of the world.

Tender Notes Burned by Mrs. Washington After George Washlngton's death his widow burned every letter that she had received from him, with the ex- ception of three or four that escaped apparently by accident.

Martha Washington knew at the time, Indeed, the whole world knew, that George Washington was a star of the first magnitude in the field of history and that every scrap of his writing would be treasured and printed. Did she feel that his letters to her were so sacred In their Intimacy that pos- terity had no right to re.d them? But there are other tenable hypo- theses.

Goldfish Aid Light Plant Now tim gold.fish enters the ranks of man's dumb servants. Spray ponds, where water is coole.d at small trans- forming stations along electric trans- mission lines, are being kept free from dlogging moss by stocking them with the sparkling fish, says the Popular Meclmnies Magazine.

The carp is also of the sucker variety, and will steal your bait. It is considered of abso- lutely no value. When caught it wil| try and flop back in the water.- Wichita Eagle.

Soon after. ward the egg hatches and the infant wasp is provided with a supply of food.St. Nicholas Magazine. the Past," picturing the development of farm machinery from the first mplement used down to the present day equipment, will be shown at the Walking an'Water high school on Thursday for the It is possible to walk on water, benefit of the agriculture class, or at least on the surface of Lake Every one is welcome to attend, the Magadl, Kenya colony, Africa, be- admission being a nominal sum.
