(Continued) or English work of fiction, but a French novel, “Le Maître de Forges," by Georges Ohnet, which reached a sale of 7,000,000 copies in France alone—and this in spite of the fact that Jules Le Maître, a distinguished critic, denounced the novel as "the worst ever written since the beginning of time.”

The upsetting of old habits among the working people of Germany since the war is strikingly shown by a correspondent of the New York "Times" who has recently been through the great Krupp Works in Essen. He says that the 50,000 workers now there employed are on an eight-hour schedule which begins at six o'clock in the morning. They have but one fifteen-minute pause in their work and they stop at a quarter past two. This gives them practically all the afternoon, as well as the evening, for amusement. The result is said to be that they show up pretty tired in the morning, with resultant loss in production.
Luigi Denza is a name that perhaps means little to the average reader, but its bearer was the author of a song that has gone round the entire world—“Funiculi, Funicula." Signor Denza, who died recently, composed the song when the funicular railway up Mount Vesuvius was opened in 1880. It has been translated, it is said, into every civilized languąge.

"Good-nature, like a bee, collects honey from everywhere. Ill-nature, like a spider, sucks poison from the sweetest flower."
A subscriber thus comments on the above simile, quoted in The Outlook of February 22: “The food of spiders consists exclusively of the juice of insects, sometimes of members of their own order, and other small creatures. Therefore, as they are entirely carnivorous, they never suck anything from the flowers. I resent this implication as to the spider's habit.”
Another subscriber contributes this: “In one of our school readers of sixtyfive years ago there was a comparison of two schoolgirls ending: “Thus, while Melissa, like the bee, gathers honey from every weed, Arachnæ, like the spider, sucks poison from the fairest flowers.'"

Who owns an engagement ring when the engagement is broken? The question came up in a New York City court the other day. The ring, worth $660, was put in the judge's hands. “Do you want this precious ring or this precious girl?" he asked of the man. "The girl," was the reply. “Will you have this man or give up this ring?" the judge asked the girl. "I'd like to think it over," was her non-committal reply. The Court gave her three months' time for deciding, and meanwhile gave the ring into the custody of the man's lawyer, indicating its opinion that an engagement ring belongs to the suitor if he is finally rejected.
