Every Thursday Night is Bank Night Use of Mint Leaves Was Known in the Bible Days 'When an analyst of London was giving evidence in the Sheffield police court where a grocer was being tried on the charge of selling dried mint which were not of the nature and qual- ity of the article demanded by the purchaser and contained a foreign leaf, a number of int,..restl~g facts about the antiquity of thls i)lant were brought out, say s a writer in the Cleveland ]Plain Dealer. It was stated in evidence that a sample of dried herbs co~tained 80 parts of mint qnd 20 l)arts of foreign leaf known as ailantims leaves, or leaves of the "tree of heav~'n."

Overture, Instrumental Music Before the Opera "Overture" was origin:lily a F~ent.h word, "'ouverture," meaning to open, says a writer in the Montreal Herald. When instrumental music came Into fashion it was often used merely to strengthen the effect.of dramatic song, hut, as singing nnd playing turned in- to opera, naturally tts music grew in Importance. One of the earliest composers of opera, Monteverde, bad the idea of an Instrun|ental flourish before the opera actually began. This soon deveh)ped into a quite separate piece at tile out- set of the opera. Glu(.k, a reformer of music, thought of making tile over- lure like the mood of tile opera itself. but It was Mozart who lnclmicd one of his ~)pera melodies in ttle actual over- lure. Wagner built into his overtures most of the leading themes found in the opera to which they belong. Sometimes overtures are quite lade- pendent pieces of orchestral music. and often enough they are Just a frame for a composer's musical thought.

Labrador and Britain Labrador extends across nearly the same latitudes as the British Isles but tlm shores of Britain and Ireland are washed by a current northbound from the troplcs, while the icy waters of the Arctic flow down past the irregular northeastern coast of North" America. There Is, therefore, a vast difference In climate. The British climate Is for tile most part comfortably temperate, with winters usually milder than those of our north. The Labrador climate Is described as very severe, cold and stormy. Toward the north its forests gradually diminish, the upper part of the country consisting of bare tundras. The Labrador winters are, neverthe. less, rated bearable and healthful, due to their dryness.

One form of torture was to wrap a political prisoner in the tilde of a freshly killed rhinoceros. As the hlde dried it contracted and slowly crushed the victim. Another use the .ancient Chinese had for rhinoceros skins was for covering fl, neral cars.
