All about their origin, birth, and death; what their insides are good for; where dragons came from; how they act; and what you had better do if you meet one. There isn't an atom of self-improvement in the book; no word of woman's future; nothing about the wage scale in Lancashire or Oregon. And, for our part-our own shameless part—we are content to let all the lofty domes talk as they will under the elms. We will step aside with Mr. Scott Stokes, and learn about dragons.

responded to our plea for the answer to the Palmerston riddle, published in the August 19 issue, thereby showing themselves possessed of a keen knowledge of the Bible and a nimble mind. The answer seems to be the image that Michal, the wife of David, put in his bed in order to deceive his enemies who were coming to kill him. Together with the solution many people sent in other Biblical riddles which they desired to have solved. Here is one from Miss Frances Hastings, of Rochester. Can anybody guess it?

A SCRIPTURE PUZZLE Find two words of equal length, Equal in syllabic strength; Find them once and look no more, Vain the search in Bible lore. There we see them sundered wide, Elsewhere often side by side; Twice three letters each contains. Think not of time's earliest stages, Pore not o'er New Testament pages. On the intervening ground Both dissyllables are found. Common things the words denote, Things not seldom sold and bought; Bought and sold for sacred use, Both exposed to much abuse. One is little, one is great; Each has served both Church and

State; Though the great includes the small, Power does not to greatness fall. One the body, one the heart; Neither found to act apart; First in point of time, the great Still must for the other wait. One for many, one for few; Plain and ornate, old and new; Cheap and costly, foul and fair, Fondly sought and shunned with care. One for men alone to use, One designed for all who choose. Children of a tender age, Dullest boor and wisest sage; Helpful both and influential, They are not to man essential. While we pray they many abound, Ready substitutes are found. Now the Bible bids us prize them, Holds them guilty who despise them; Now for earth's advantage given, They will not be found in heaven. Such the words in mystery pent, Such the things they represent; Those who know their Bible best Soon will make successful quest.

Here is an exercise in punctuation. All those who have been reading Mr. Law. rence Abbott's articles on English grammar to the fore:

Every lady in this land
Has twenty nails on each hand.
Five and twenty on hands and feet,
This is true without deceit.

is conducted with admirable contrasts-
especially the second movement. Its
chief weakness is in reproduction. The
famous double-bass passage

in the
scherzo, instead of being played with
powerful elephantine zest, sounds timidly
thin and remote. From the first we were
aware of a disappointed feeling that the
tone of the orchestra did not come out
as fully, clearly, and colorfully as it
should. And Beethoven's Fifth, even
when conducted by Weingartner, loses
much effectiveness when it lacks a full
