THE DEVIL'S CODE.
Legend of a Monk, tho Devil and a Quick
Stockholm's pubb'o library contains a
wonderful work which is called "The
Devil's Code" aud which in addition
to its extraordinary name is said to be
' the biggest manuscript in tho world.
Every letter is most beautifully drawn
and the magnitude of the work is so
great that it. seems impossible for any
single monk'to have done it.
The story of tho origin of the nianur
script, however, not only giyea it as
the work of one man, but also states it
to be the work of a single night The
story runs as follows :
"A poor mouk had been condemned
to death, but was told mockingly by bis
judges that if he was ablo to copy the
whole 'Code' between darkness and
dawn he would bo saved. Relying upon
the impossibility of the task, those who
senteuced him .furnished him with the
original copy of the 'Code,' with pen,
ink and parchment and left him.
"Death must have been as little liked
in the middle ages as it is now, for the
monk, forgetting the hopelessness of
his task, commenced it. Before long,
however, ho flaw that he could not save
his own life by such weak exertions,
and fearing a cruel and horrible death
he invoked the aid of the prince of
darkness, promising to surrender his
soul if he were assisted in the task.
"The devil kindly obliged by appear
ing on the spot, accepted the contract
and sat down to the work, and next
morning 'The Devil's Code' was finished,
the monk being found dead. Tho copy
ing clerk from the infernal regions pre
sumably fled away with-the poor man's
soul as soon a3 tho wicked compact was
finished." Pearson's Weekly.
Hall Calne'a Idea.
At a dinner given by the Aldine club
of New York to Hall Caine that gentle
man said regarding the relations bo

Englishman, to be no sufficient reason
why two great nations should not live

never-shine on the clouds of vapor which
rise out of those troubled waters without-
making a beautiful rainbow, which
bridges land to land.
