What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Only a Thread. [Salt Lake Tribane,] The News of the cold all over the world, the distress and suffer­ ing being produced iif many places by it, is another reminder of what a narrow thread human life hangs upon. Should the tem­ perature fall as much more in the next month as it Ins in the past month, it would nearly destroy all animal Ij/e all over the world; men and animals would either freeze or starve to death. It only needs a. few''xlegteeiB “off xvmperit ture, warmer or colder than what men are accustomed to, to work the utter destruction of animal life. As it is, thousands will per­ ish; thousands of healthy people will perisli who attempt to go on little j urneys. The insidious cold will penetrate their lung-; after a few sharp- notices the drowsiness will com® intense cold brings, and tlie end then is close by. People perish that way every winter all ever the northern states of our country and all over north eni Eurrpo. In six months the other extreme will come; men will get up strong and wall in the morning, and, attempting te cross the street wher® the sun shines, they will sink down and expire, smitten to death by 'he heat. The hold which mortals have upon this life is a most trail one, and when notices come that in the great oilier the poor nre »lying simply because of ill.» want of a little coal or a liltje food, it shows how ea^y it wmi d be, either by giving to the woild a few more degrees of heat 01 cold, to wipe out the race entirely, leaving a for a new beginning. More than onae has that been done; once when tropical animals were brows ing upon the r'ch verdure which grew on the plains of Siberia and in the fastnesses of British Colum­ bia, there came a sudden breaking up of the earth’s crust; the waters within escaped in steam and fell in everlasting snow, and in a moment of time all animal life became extinct. When man studies nature and nature’s forces and realizes how little his hold is on life, there is not much room leit for pride of for self esteem; rather, the thought comes irreuis- tably that we are but shadows and that all we pursue are shadows. Not Generally Known. It seems that twenty five per cent, of the women of England earn their own living, but one would scarcely believe that there are nearly 350 female blacksmiths in that country. Express traius in Russia rarely travel faster than twenty-two miles an hour. These are very slow expresses indeed, y e t a rail way guard avers that the fastest trai mb are always the sa f e s t . If you wish to increase your chances of life, marry, for, ss a rule, married men live longer than bachelors; yet out of every thousand persons in England more than six hundred are unmarried. There are four times as many -words hr- our- language--. as there;, are in the French, yet a philologist estimates that the coinago of new words in our tongue goes on at the rate of 100 annually. A celebrated aeronaut asserts after patient investigation, that the ninth day of the moon is the most rainy day of the whole twenty eight, and four o’clock in the afternoon the rainiest hour of the day. In Great Britain the yearly loss in wages through ill health is eleven millions sterling, and it is estimated that 49 per cent, of those who start in business fail, March being considered the slackest month for business. It may not be generally known that four men in every six use to­ bacco; yet a man in Vienna asserts that diptheria is thrice as prevalent among smokers as those who deny themselves the luxury of the weed. The English of our da}' is con­ sidered bv a high authority almost perfect, alike for the purpose of the orator, the philosopher, the lecturer and tlie* poet. The purest English is said to b® apoken in Lincolnshire. Each time we roach (he end of December, we should think with satisfaction that we have got over the most dangerous month, Biuce in this country more deaths are said to occur in December than at any other time of the year. A B O U T B1 « I H » P BROOK';. He Didn’t Want to See the An­ gel Gabriel. • Of the many stories extant of Phillips Brooks none is more characteristic than 1 he following: Being engaged upon a sermon, he left orders with his servant that, on no account, was he to to be in­ terrupted. But shonly after ho had retired to his study the door hell rang, and a fneo 1 from New York sought admin unco—Slock Broker Nichols, who had been a classmate of Bishop Brooks at col­ lege. This early caller did not fancy the idea of being turned away, and while he was' remon­ strating with the servant, the bishop emerged from his study, welcomed the visitor with open arms, bade him enter, and talked with him an hour or so. The ser­ vant felt deeply mortified, and made bitter complaint after the caller had departed. “I remember distinctly,” said the servant, “ that you told me that you would be so busy that you wouldn't see the i b Angel Gabriel if he called.” “Yes.” answered the bishop, “ I dicTsay that, aird I'meant Lit... Bat. there’s all the difference in the world between Gabriel and my friend Nichols. I’m bound to see Gabriel anyway in the next world, but as there is some doubt about my seeing Nichols there, it was only right that I should see him here when he took the trouble to call upon me.” • • Educating- a Boy. In Monlaignie’s eyes the object of education is to form a boy’s character and prepare him for life and to fill him not so much with learning as the desire of learning, “with an honest eurioity for infor­ mation about everything.” This sounds perhaps obvious and com­ monplace, but the seed whioh Montaigne sowed three oenturies ago has, it must be coniessed, fal­ len too often on Stony ' ground. There are a large number of per­ sons concerned with education at the present day who, if Ihey have equipped a boy with a sufficient stock of learning to enable him to pass an examination, fold their hands and think that they have dona all that is needful. I will quote two aphorisms which Mont­ aigne has left to us: “ Every abridgement of a good book is a foolish abridgement;” and, “Learning in one man’s hand is a sceptre, and in another’s a bauble.” —Maemillau’s Magazine. *
