Lotteries in Italy. F
Italy, however, is afflicted with another
plague, even more destructive than that
of counterfeiting, more tremen(lous in
its evil results, and which invades every
departmont and every class. The Gov
ernment itself regulates the lotteries,
with the idea. probably, of liriting what
could not be avoided, and profliting by it.
It is said that the annual net profit lwhiieh
it derives from this tutelage is $15,000,
000. But it is considered only a tem
porary measuro, the final aim of Italy's
state nuen being to abolish a vice which
destroys habits of industry and encouir- I
ages orime. It may be consi(lered d()ul)t

w%ith this vice is Campania, where the

It's a great thing to be a philanthro

at the suggestion of his neighbor, Mr.
Snido, he resolved to have a grand pie
nic for the poor bootbhicks of the city at
his elegant country house. So he sent a
man to limit up a lot of the boys and
)ring them out there one fine afternoon.
They came, a good hundred of them,
and the old gentlemen received them
with smiling faces and kind words.
"Make yourselves right at home, boys,
and have just as gd a time am you
know how to," he snid to them. Teni
he left them to go it and went into the
house. In aboutit fifteen minutes his
head gardener came in and asked him if
lie had given thren of the boys permis
sion to ride upon his Alerney cow, and
to throw rocks and hard iaines at who
ever objected. Mr. G. said "No," and
vent out to see about it. He finally in
duced the boys to quit that aniusement,
and then his coaclinan came and said if
he wanted to have any fish in his trout
pond he'd better go and stop the boys
from fishing in it. He did so and began
to feel rather annoyed at their proceed
mugs. Btut he stood it, and didn't scold.
Presently his dog flew by with a bottle
attached to his tail, and the whole gang
set off in pursuit, and ran over his flow
er beds and into the conservatory and
upset valiuable plniit, and did a noap of
damage. Then lie orlered the gang
started for the city, and in hunting them
up four were found to have just got the
