Among domo of Peasantry of France
ls Belief That Bread Remains
Freah Ten Years. ,
jEGBNDS and myths without
number bave become asso
ciated with the celebration
of Christmas. Among some
of the peasantry of Franco
is a strong belief that loaves of bread
baked at Christmas will remain fresh
for ten years. It ls also believed by
some of the simple folk that during
tho whole of the Christmas holidays a
portion Of bread sbould be left on tho
table day and night because tho Holy
Mother may come to share lt. For
some reason not to bo explained, there
ls a superstition among soino French
peasant wives that no bread must be
baked between Christmas day and tho
Feast of the Circumcision, because an
Infraction of this rule will bring dis
aster on tho household.
There Is a peasant belief of age-long
standing that If the cattlo on the farm
bo given drink immediately after tho
midnight mass of Christmas their
health will continue good throughout
the year. Another belief ls that If seed
of wheat be wrapped In a tablecloth
which has been used for Christmas
dinner, a prob to hie harvest will be
Insured. Another strange belief is that
a cold bath taken on Christmas day
nvill protect the bather against fevers
snnd toothache throughout ^10 year.

Farmers Loso Bees by Arsenate.
A recent dispatch from Abbeville
R. S. McComb, a farmer of Abbe
ville, lias recently lost four out of bis
twetity hives of bees from calcium
irsenate poisoning used on cotton to
kill woevils. A imbiber of othor sim

Iraw nectar from a poison bower and
.ivoid such, but they are not fortltled

poisoning of bees in no wiso affects
he quality of the honey, however, as
dio poison kills the boo beforo tho
loctar can be made into honey, which
process takes place inside the body
