THE STONE BREAKER.
a Eramre of Centent i Bhonest
but Monotonous Toil,
In my country of Alsace, on the soli
tary route whose interminable ribbon
stretches on and on ULder the forests
of the Vosges, tkere is a stone breaker
whom I have seen at nia work for thir
ty years. The-first time I came upon
him I was a young student setting out
with swelling heart for the great city.
The sight of this man did me good, for
he was humming a song as he broke
his stones. We exchanged a few
words, and he said at the end, "Well,
goodby, my boy, good courage and
good luck!" Since then I have passed
and repassed along the same route
under circumstances the most diverse,
painful and joyful. The student has
finished his course; the breaker of
stones remains what he was. He has
taken a few more precautions against
the seasons' storms-a rush mat pro
tects his back, and his felt hat is
drawn further down to shield his face.
But the forest is always sending back
the echo of his valiant hammer. How
many sudden tempests have broken
over his bent back, how much adver'se
fate has fallen on his head, on his.
house, on his country! He continues
to break his stones, and coming and
going I find him by the roadside smil
ing in spite of his age and his wrin
kles, benevolent, speaking-above all.
in dark days-those simple words of
brave men which have so much effect
when they are scanned to the breaking
of stones.-From "The Simple Life,"
by Charles Wagner.
: A SHREWD OLD LADY.
Now She Got Her Will Drafted and
Fooled Her Lawyer.
A certain lawyer, famed for high
charges, had incurred the enmity of
an old lady on account of the same.
Wishing to get even with him, she con
sulted him about drafting her will. As
she was a very wealthy old lady, with
out near relatives, she had. many chari
table associations to benefit,. hnd the
accurate draft of the will required
much patience, skill and. time. Among:
the provisions. she made- a generous
bequest to this lawyer and nominated,
him executor. After the execution of
the will she called. for her-bill, where
upon the lawyer, with the vision of
ample fees In the- prospective settle-I
ment of the estate and the memory of
the generous bequest, told the old lady
that under the circumstances he should.
" charge nothing, but. finally, to satisfy
her business scruples, made out a re
ceipt in full to date-for $1, whereas the
smallest sum he could. have properly
charged would have been $100.
The old lady marehed. home with. her
will, set herself to work, copied it out
carefully word for word, leaving out
the bequest to the lawyer and. nomimit
Ing a new executor.
In the course of time she- died, and
the disgust of the lawyer. at the con
tents of the will was.so great that he
inadvertently let out the secret, to the
huge delight of his brother lawyers.
The Sacred Twelve. e
The "patriarchal, and 4bostolical
number of twelve" as the-proper and
4nly admissible number for a jury try
ing cases according to.the common law
has come down to .us from :.mote an
tiquity.. Yet this number was not al
-wys universaL. In 1652 a Cornish cns
tcunt to have juries-of six was declared
to be bad, but evidenice was given that
such juries had been widely used In
the county, and by a special statute of
Henry VIII juries of six were allowed
in Wales. But the jury of the grand
assize consisted of sixteen men, which
still finds a parallel in the jury of pre
sentments of the Liberty of the Savoy.
The modern grand jury, the coroner's
jury and the jury at lunacy and eccle
siastical Inquisitions number anything
between twelve and twenty-three,
whereof twelve at least must agree on
a verdict-London Law JournaL

that when Gordon returned from his

There are several ways in which two

Ovid taught young women when writ

THE SAND WASP,
ir aous Manner In Which This In&
Heet Uses a Hammer.
t arlib.erate use of a tool by a lit
.u sa:1d wasp mi,ht well be supposed 3
u) inuieute reasoaiing porer, says an f
exch;,e. A well known naturalist, a
Dr. l'eekham, watched a wasp dig a a
hole in the earth and deposit therein t
an egg. together with a spider which a
she had stung into paralysis to feed a
the grub which shouki be hatched in l
due caurse. Then she filled up the hole ej
with sand or earth and jammed it d
down with her head. C
When at last the filling was level
with the ground she brought a quan i:
tity of fine grains of dirt to the spot, b
picked up a small pebble in her mandi- t
bles and used it as a hammer in pound
ing them down with rapid strokes, thus a
making this spot as hard and firm as 2
the surrounding surface. Before we a
could recover from our astonishment i
at this performance she had dropped r
her stone and was bringing more earth. e
In a moment we saw her pick up the 2
pebble and again pound the earth into i
place with it. Once more the whole i
proeess wa: repeated, and then the lit- : t
tle creatures flew away. - I
"The whole-of this performance,"
writes Sir Herbert Maxwell in "Memo- r

that even Dr. Peckham's high reputa

BARBAROUS ENGINES. i
Man Traps and Spring Guns Once In
Use In England.
We were reminded the other day of
some of the incidents of country life
of former years by the offering for
sale at a London auction mart of a
couple of man traps. These engines
were once upon a time part of the
chattels of well nigh every considera
ble landowner and every energetic
gamekeeper. Another implement was
the spring gun, which turned on a
s*ivel and discharged itself as soon as
one of the connecting wires was stum
bled against, the muzzle of the gun
turning in the direction of the tres
passer as indicated by the wire, the
guilty party generally receiving a coat
lug of pitch if of nothing worse. The
man traps sold the other day were
probably the first some of the attend
ants at the sale ever saw and were of
the old formidable pattern-that is to 1
say, they resembled a glorified gin.
They measured seventy-four inches 1
long and were just about three feet in
height, so that they would catch a
poacher well above the knee, and once
nipped there he would remain till his
cries or the ordinary round of the
keepers led at once-to his release and
capture. The spring gun gave its
alarm, and watchers were speedily in
attendance. There was something very
barbarous about the use of these en
gines, which were not so very long ago
quite common. In fact, people need
not be very old to have seen boards
bearing the legend, "Beware of man1
traps and spring guns."-London Field.
- Her 'Opinion of Boys.]
A little girl wrote the following essay
on boys: "Boys are men that have not
got as big as their papas, and girls are
women that will be ladies by and by.
Whpn God looked at Adam he sald to
himself, 'Well, I think I can do better
if I try again,' and he made Eve. Boys
are a trouble. They wear out every
thing but soap. If I had my way the
world would be girls and the rest dolls.
My papa is so nice that I think he1
must have been a little girl when he
was a little boy. Man was made, and
on the seventh day he rested. Wom

rested since."-Philadelphia Inquirer.
Romance of a Statue.
The statue of Charles I. which now
stands in London was sold to a brazier
during the commonwealth with the un
derstanding that it should be broken
up. The buyer, however, saw a chance
to make money and buried it instead.
To cover his action he made a large
number of bronze knives and forks,
which were eagerly bought by both
royalists and Puritans as souvenirs.
When the monarchy was restored to
power the statue was dug up again1
and bought by the government to be
placed in its present position, where it
has remained since 1674.
