14 Yes, wc keep eycsloncs," said
nu uptown druggist, "but wo don't
have a cull for one once in live

demand for llictn, for wholesale
dealers purchase all Hint arc brought
them by sailors, who make a busi
ness of collecting them on their
voyages. l)id 3011 ever see un eye
stoncV" 'No," said tlic reporter, "but
they aro found in the stomachs of
crayflsh, I believe."
'"'Then your belief is about as far
wrong as it could be," said the
druggist, as lie took a small bottle
from the drawer. It was half-full
of what seemed to lie a very small,
round, flat pieces of polished bone.
Emptying a few of the pieces on the
counter, he picked up one and hand
ed it to the reporter to examine.
There was nothing notable about the
little bono except that one side was
composed of numerous concentric
"That is an eyestone," said the
druggist, pouring some liquid out o,f
a bottle on to a smooth place and
diluting it with water. "And this
is a weak solution of lime juice."
Tito druggist took one of the cyc
stoncs and put it into the bolulion.
Presently the stone began to move
as if it wore alive. It made its way
slowly about in different directions
in the liquid in a mysterious
"That strange movement of the
eyestone when placed in a weak
solution of lime juice or vinegar
has given rise among ignorant and
superstitious people to the notion
that it has life and that it
vinegar, anil loves to swim
above all tilings. Hut there
more life in an eyestone than
is in a paving-stone. It is
posed of calcareous material, and
when placed in the solution named
is made to move about by carbonic
acid gas, which is evolved by the
contact with the liquid acid. These
little stones and other genuino eyc
sloncs once were the front doors to
the shells of a littlo molluscous ani
mal that lives along the Venezuelan
and other South American coasts.
The shell is a univalve. This cal
careous formation is on the tip end
of the little animal, and when he
draws himself into his shell to escape
danger or go to sleep, the end, of
course, is the last part of him that
is drawn into the cavity or mouth of
the shell, where it iits so closely and
is so hard that it affords perfect pro
tection to the animals against ene
mies from without. The native in
habitants collect the eyestoncs in
large quantities and regard them
with great awe. Sailors engaged on
the fruit-trading vessels that visit
these regions obtain the stones and
fetch them to New York for sale to
the wholesale druggists.
"There arc two little bones found
in the head of the crayflsh, just back
of and beneath the eyes, which re
semble the eyestone, except that
they aro smooth all over. These
arc called eyestones and are used as
such in Ohio and other Western
States, but they have noun of tho
virtues of the real eyestone. The
proper name for the stone found in
the crayfish is crubstoncs. In Po
land and parts of Kussia quite a
trade is done in collecting crab
stones. The crayflsh are buried in
deep pits and left there until they
rot. Tho refuse is then washed and
the stones are picked out. They arc
used in many parts of Europe as a
corrective of the stomach.
There Is nothing better to remove
foreign substances from the eye than
one of these South American eye
stones. Before using them many
people think it necessary to put
them in vinegar to give them life,
but it is not necessary. The stono
is inserted at one corner of the eye,
with tho grooved sido next to the
lid. Tho prcssuro of the eyeball
forces it to movo about in tho eye
and the gioovcs collect the foreign
matter and retain it. After making
a thorough circuit of the eye tho
stono will come out at the corner of
tho nose. No incouvcnicnco is
caused by its presence in the eye."

THE TRUE CROSS.
The story which attributes tho
finding of tho actual cross on which
Christ suffered to the Empress
Helena, mother of Constantino the
Great, rests upon the concurrent
testimony of four Jlyziuitino histori
ans, named Rufinus, Socrates, Theo
dorot nnd Sozomau, who wrote be
tween scvcnty-llvc and one hundred
years after tho incidents related.
These authors agrco that the Em
press being urged by a dream to
proceed to Jerusalem, went thoro ;
and, having called together tho chief
Jens, fixed upon one bearing tho
ominous name of Judas, who, as it
turned out, had been told by his
grandfather whero tho truo cross
was buried, though on 110 account
was he to reveal his knowledgo to
any onoj for, to quote the "Golden
Legend," "after that hit shall bo
founden tho Icwcs shal reygne no
mowr; tho cristen men that wor
shypped the Crosso ehal then
reygne." Judas for a long time
followed tho commandments of his
grandfather, but upon being put in
11 dry well and threatened with starv1-
ation, he relents, and points out tho
spot where the crosses arc buried.
Theso aro found, and, opart from
them, at some littlo distance, a
board with Pllato's inscription in
Hebrew, Greek nnd Latin. The
dilllculty now evidently was to dis
tinguish the true cross from those
upon which tho thieves had been
cruclfled ; but a ready solution of
the question presented itself, inas
much as one of which the Empress
was in search had tho distinct power
of working all sorts of miracles, that
not being tho case with other two.
Helena afterward deposited a por
tion of tho cross iu Jerusalem, a
second portion In Ityxanltiim, and
the third she gave to Constantino,
who placed it in the Church of Santa
Croce at Koine. At theso places
festivals and pilgrimages were es
tablished, and fragments of the
wood were sold at fabulous prices
to lich pilgrims, who, no doubt,
thought they possessed tho gift of
working miracles through their aid.
When this anticipation was not veri
fied by the facts, the priests gave
out that the wood retained not its
viituo through the vices and follies
of mankind, but that instead it as
sumed the power of self-multiplication,
a convenient and highly re
munerative fiction. At the present
time a large number of Continental
cities arc said to possess fiagmcnts
of the true cross, and oven in Eng
land au occasional rclie may bo met
with, as, for example, at St. Mary's
Convent, York; at Plouden Hall,
in Shropshire ; and in tho Church of
St. Gcorgo's, Southwark. London
