G bells," an American tourist quoted in “Harper's Magazine" says epigrammatically, in illustrating the Italian's propensity to gesticulate, "and ask him if he thinks it is going to rain, and before his answer is finished he will have taken enough exercise to last him all day."
An amusing incident in the career of the late Chief Justice White is related in the New York “Times." As a young lawyer he was called upon to defend a man who was accused of stealing a pair of "pants.” The man was seated with his legs under a large table, when Mr. White sat down and asked him something about the case. The man was most reticent. Finally the lawyer for the other side called the accused to take the stand. The prisoner turned to Mr. White and said:
"Jedge, I don't want to take the stand."
"Why not?" asked Mr. White. “You're perfectly innocent, aren't you?"
"Yes, sir, l'se perfectly innocent as long as I sit with my feet under dis table, but if I get up on the stand-oh Lord, Jedge, the trouble is I'se got them pants on!”

The oldest living college alumnus in America is said to be Mr. Washington Bissell, of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, who was born April 17, 1820, and was graduated from Union College in 1% 46. A newspaper interviewer declares that "at 101 he still has a full, carrying, resonant voice and speaks distinctly." He remembers hearing John Quincy Adams, sixth President of the United States, speak during the campaign of 1825 in Rochester.

Criticising what he calls the crudeness of the British national anthem, the editor of the London "Mercury" says that he recently spent some days with two poets who had settled down to the rewriting of "God Save the King" till they had produced something satisfactory. But after all their struggles they had to give it up. A national anthem cannot be written to order, it seems.
s an example of the subtleties that will not "go" in a popular anthem, the crític quotes "the most skillfully written of all new versions, that of the late James Elroy Flecker," whose second verse ran:
Thou in his suppliant hands
Save thou our King!
Doom thou and fling.

AN EPOCH - MAKING BOOK
SOON TO APPEAR One which outlines a new philosophic conception of man which, according to prominent engineers, mathematicians and other thinking men, is destined to mark a new epoch in the world's progress.
The Manhood of Humanity By ALFRED KORZYBSKI
The concept is said to be easy to grasp and of fundamental importance to education, ethics and civilization as a whole.
THE CONCEPT Count KORZYBSKI considering or.
ganic life noted the characteristics of Vegetable organisms—their power to
attract chemical substances from the earth and form them into a cell in which the energy of the sun is stored, making them “chemistry-binding." Animal organisms—their added power
to move about in space, making them
a "space-binding class ;" and Human organisms-having an added
new mysterious power to live not as animals, in the present only, but by the past and for the future, that“ timebinding" power in virtue of which man has created civilization. According to this theory man is dis
tinguished from plants and animals, not by supernatural powers, but by his “time-binding," his power to conceive of Time.

Prof. CASSIUS J. KEYSER of the Dept.
of Mathematics, Columbia University, addressing the Phi Beta Kappa Society's annual meeting, said: “The time-binding characteristic of humanity is not an effect of civilization but its cause; it is not a civilized energy ; it is the energy that civilizes; it is not produced by wealth, whether material or spiritual, but is the source and creator of wealth. 'That conception will be found, I believe, to initiate a new epoch-the epoch of humanity's manhood. When it is understood ... ethics will abandon the space-binding standards of animals and will become human ethics based on the natural laws of the time-binding
energies of man.” Mr. ROBERT B. WOLF, Vice-Pres. of the
A. S. M. E., says: “I consider Count Korzy bski's discovery of man's place in the great life movement as even more epoch-making than Newton's discovery of the law of gravitation. It will have a far greater effect upon the development of the human race. His book, The Manhood of Humanity,' is one of great power and originality, and I believe that no thinking man or woman can afford not to be familiar with it. My own years of practical experience as an industrial manager have proven beyond a question of doubt that his theory of man's relationship to Time is absolutely correct.” A. F. SHELDON, President of the Sheldon School, writes : “ Anyone who reads not only the lines but between the lines, as all executives should be able to do, cannot fail to see in the truths revealed by this epoch-making book the possibility of making a long stride toward putting the problems of human relationships, including those of commerce and industry, on the plane where they belong."
