A London physician, at the risk of

of the grip he could do but two things

open a window and the second was to
pull off three ot the six blankets un
der which the patient was sweltering.
An English View of the Jew.
It cannot be denied that the Jewa

they were "a living and the most strtto

natural equality of man;" that all theti
tendencies were conservative, and lay
in the direction of religion, property

The other night I had a dream,
Which caused me much alarm
I crossed a maddened, muddy stream,
Twlxt midnight and early dawn.
In midnight blackness I hurried on,
And seemed had naught to fear
The rushing waters were full of scorn,
But fo rlts terrors I didn't care.
I walked upon a uarrow plank.
The waters were at its edge,
My companion lost his way and sank;
At the start we had made a pledge.
I stooped and caught him In some way
With trembling raised him to my
And ventured on without dismay
Rejoiced at saving him from harm.
As I walked along this narrow way,
The day began to dawn.
The sun cam out in golden rays,
And a beautiful city I was shown.
To me it seemed a Paradise,
A city of luxury and bliss.
It was planted high upon a cliff
And dwelt not therein sinful vice.
With new energy and cheerful song,
I hurried my footsteps o'er the deep,
My companion then' leaped from my
Again into the angry deep.
A second time I stooped with care
. To rescue him from the muddy
He laughed at me and at the darq
As I wept and walked on In my

And the current seemed so swift,
And then I weakened began to re

"Named" from the Pulpit
Sydney Smith once dared Sir Archi
bald MacDonald to come and hear him
preach at St. Paul'? cathedral. "If you
do I shall name you from the pulpit,"
be said. Undeterred by his threat,
8lr Archibald went to St. Paul's. After
Sydney Smith had entered the pulpit
be looked hard at him and was then
seized with a wonderful fit of sneez
ing "Archie, archie, archie!" after
which he proceeded to deliver an ex
Street Rune Through Church.
One of the best-known instances ot
churches with streets through them
Is that ot St. John the Baptist's
church in Bristol. The church Is situ

into the city on the Avon, and the
towering spire, standing high above
the neighboring houses and streets, Is
a remarkable sight, as one surveys it
from the roadway below.

Foolish English Custom.
In certain back-country districts ot
England, on Jan. 1. which is called
Childermas, every child Is soundly
spanked before breakfast. The datf
Is supposed to ho the anniversary ot
the actual day upon which Herod
slew the Innocents. Then-fore, to
keep the memory of the slaughtei
fresh in the minds of the rising grn
eratlon, subscribers to the ancltint
customs are hidden to whip their
children before thry rise on the morn
ing ot that day.
Scared for a Minute.
"Oh, I'm so relieved." she said, af

husband had sent her from home. "I
seemed to have a premonition when
the messenger said It was for me

left us. Hut it's nothing. The baby
fell down stairs this morning and
broke her arm. That's all.'

Scared the Boy.
A witty Kngltshmau who sought to

of the boys of the tu-lKhborhrxd put
up a large board bearing tin warn

plantation will bo splflleated accord

satisfactory, as the fear of splfllca

terred Intruders from passing through

RATS' SENSE OF SMELL.
Can Detect Presence of Cat From a
"I have observed recently a rather
curious thing with respect to the re
lationship between rats end rats, and
it has led to a rather Interesting re
flection." said a man who takes much
Interest In animal life. "For a while
the rats overran my place. At night
there was no such thing as quiet
around the house. They would scam
per arrows the floor, bump up and
down the steps and cut all kinds of
capers. We secured a cat. and from
the vory time the cat appeared on
the place the rats began to get scarce.
There Is nothing curious about thla
fact In itself. But to my personal
knowledge the rats have never seen
the cat. The cat hntt remained on
one floor, and the rats on another.
There has been no chasing and no
conflict between them. What I want
to know Is how do the rats know the
cat la on the place? The Inquiry has
caused me to Indulge the more Inter
esting reflection: How far can a rat
detect the presence of a cat by the
sensu of smell? Evidently at consid
erable distance. Else the rats at my
place would not have known of the
cat's presence." New Orleans Times
