Origin of Familiar Phrases.
" You cannot say 'boo I' to a goose."
When Ben Jonson, the dramatist, was
introduced to a nobleman, the peer was
so struck with his homely appearance
that he exclaimed, " What I you are Ben
Jonson ? \Vhcy you look as if you could
not say ' boo I to a goose." " Boo I' ex
claimed the witty dramatist., turning to
the peer and making his bow.
" He's a peg too low," " Taking a man
down a peg," may be traced to the peg
ging, or marking the drinking cup,
which wits introduced by St. Dunstan to
oheck the intnimperato habits of the
times, by preventing one mau from tak
ing a larger draught than his colmpan
ions. But the device proved the means
of increasing the evil it was intended to
remedy ; for the most abstemious were
retluired to drink precisely to a peg or
pin, whether they could soberly take
such a quantity or not.
" Blue lien" is the nickname given to
the State of Delaware. The origin of
the term is this : Capt. Caldwell, an
officer of the First Delaware regiment in
the Revolution, wias very fond of game
cocks, but maintained that no cock wits

blue lion." As lie was an exceedingly
popular man, his regiment was called
" The Blue Hen," and the terml was af

The ancient Greeks had the following
story as to the origin of this proverb:
A King of Thrace had planted ita vine
'trd, when one of his slaves, whom he
had mitch oppr'esised in that very work,
prophesied that he should never taste oi
the wine produced in it. The monarch
disregarded the prediction, and when at
an entertainment lie held a glassful of
his own wino, mado from the grapes ofi
that vineyard, he sent for the slave, and
asked him wl.t lie thought of his
prophecy now. To which the other re
plied, ' Many things fall out between
the cup and the lip," and s:'arcely had
he delivered this singular response be
fore the news was brought that a mons
trous boar was laying waste the favorite
vineyard. The king, in a rage, put
down the cup which lie held in his hand,
and hurried out with his pouple to at
tack the boar, but being too) cager the
boar rushed upon him and killed hiim
without his havinu tasted of the wine.

Salom i oonsternation over a case
of leprosy. The victim is Charles Derby,
who oontracted the disease in the Haw
allan Islands. Excluded from the coun
try, he went to San Francisoo and finally
to Salem. His first knowledge of the
fact that he was a leper came with the
discovery of a blotch of perhaps the
size of a ten cent piece on his left tem
ple. Slowly, but surely. has his case
grown worso, until now there is a large
scale on either side of the nose, which
organ is much enlarged by the disease,
wuiile the ears are swollen, one foot is
badly infected about the toes, and one
hand has been attacked. Small tuber
cles appear on different parts of the face.
In rubbing his hands together as one
would do in washing a perfect shower
of white particles falls to the floor. His
voice is hoarse and his throat sore. One
eye is in a frightful condition, and the
other, from which the vision has not
entirely fled, is fast following the course
of its companion. And yet he suffers
no pain. The numbness characteristic
of leprosy holds perfectly in his case as
in every other. Thrust a pin, a needle
or a sharp knife into his hands, feet or
face and he fools it not. Even his eyes
cause him no inconvenience, save the
horrible thought constantly in his mind
that the light of day will to him very
soon be shut out forever.
le eats all kinds of food with a relish,
sleeps soundly and well, moves about
with comparittvely little inconvenience,
and bathes, and to some extent takes
care of his diseased limbs without out
side help. Great care is used by his
attendant to see that none of the itten.
sials or clothing used by the leper are
handled by other persons, as inoculation
inight occur, in which case the party or
parties .so inoculated would inevitably
become victims of the frightful disease.
Aside from methods such as those, there
is thought by authoritio.i on the subject
to be no danger of a communication of
the disease from one person to another.
In fact, at Honolulu, where the senten
ces of banishment are so surely and so
impartially carried out., there scents to
be no hesitation on the part of any per.
son to converse with a leper, as long
as care is taken not to com in
contact with the person of the tfortu
nate. Banishment becomes necessary
from the fact that whatever the loper
uses or handles is liable to convey the
contagion through an abrasion of the
skin or otherwise to the next part.v
handling the article. Conlequently if it
is doce tied to keep this Salem leper in
that city, a person will be engaged for
the special purpose of taking care of
I)orby, and of everything that he uses.
Perhaps an effort will be made, how.
ever, to sceure his admission to a colonj
of lepers in New lBrunswick, where he
could receive better attention thar
almost anywhere else.-- pringicld

The Xodi$ed Instincts of a Bilad Cat.
The family favorite whose misfortune.
have affored an opportunity to observe
the workings of Instinat under difl.
oulties Is a noble specimen of the genus
Felia.. "Dido" is his name-given for
simple euphony, without regard to gen
der. During the four years of his life
he has never been known to'do anything
wrong, unless it' be to fight most des
'perately against all feline intruders. In
some one of his many encounters, Dido
met with an injury in one of his feet
that made a surgical operation neces
sary, from which he recovered, but
shortly afterward went totally blind.
A cataract was formed over each eye,
by which, as repeated experiments
proved, vision was thoroughly obscured.
This calamity caie on suddenly, and
p;aced the cat in circumstances not
provided for by the ordinary gifts of in
stinct. What to do with himself was
plainly a problem hard to be solved.
Io would sit and mow most piteously,
as if bemoaning his condition; and
when he attempted to move about, he
met with all the mishaps that the reater
will be likely to imagine. Ile ran
against walls, fell down stairs, stumbled
over sticks, and when once on the top
rail of the fence he would traverse its
entire length seeking in vain for a safe
jumping-off place. On being called, he
would run about bewildered, as if not
knowing whence the voice came nor
whither he should go to find the one
calling. In short, l)ido's life seemed
hardly worth living, and we were scrt
ously plotting his death, when the cat
himself clearly concluded that he must
make his other senses atone for the loss
It was very curious to watch his ex
periments. One of the first of those
was concerning the art of going down
stairs. Instead of pawing the air, as he
had been doing on reaching the top
stop, he went to one side till he felt the
banisters touch his whiskers, and then,
guided thus, he would ~ descend safely
and at full speed, turning into the hall
on gaining the last step. One by one
he mado each familiar path a study, do
termined the exact location of each
door, explored anow all his own haunts,
and soomed bravely resolved to begin
life over again. The result was so un
expectedly successful that we were de
ceived into the notion that sight had
been restored. But by placing any ob
stacle in the path, and then calling him
eagerly to his customary feeding placo,
it was evident that lie was entirely
blind, for he would run with full forco
against the box or other obstruction,
and thon, for time afterward, he would
proceed with renewed caution.
)ido's "voice is still for war," and
his blindness does not make him any
less successful in his duels with in
trudors. IHe even goes abroad in quest
of adventures, and comes safely home
His value as a mouser (loes not seem
to be in the least diminished. 0 ne of
my experiments as to his capacity in
this direction came near costing me
dear. I had heard the gnawing of a rat
in an old closet where there lay a quan
tity of newspapers. Here it was decided
to leave Dido over night, and while ar
ranging the papers for the purpose, my
hand was suddenly caught by the claws
and teeth of what at the moment -eemed
.like a small tiger. Poor Dido ! H
really looked ashamed of his blunder in
mistaking my hand for his anticipated

as a shield, or the injury minlicted might
have been more serious. I may add that,

A dtrloins Jest.
During the past winter threo citizens
of the Bohemian town of Neustadt met
every night for social purposei in the
public room of tha best inn. The
friends were the Judge of the District
Court, Franz Rychilk, Kapelneister
Bauer, and a merchant, named Kohn.
One evening in merry humor they swore
a common oath to remain united in
death as well as in life, and each mem
ber of the guild pledged himself that if
one of the brotherhood died he would
follow him into the invisible world with
in the space of fourteen days at the
longest. The landlord, who took the
oath as a more joke, wished to make a
fourth in the league, which was granted.
As all the men were under middle age
and in sound health, they felt secure
that the first death was a long way off.
About six weeks ago, however, the Dis
trict Judge, Rychilk, died in his sleep
from the poisonous fumes of a defective
stove in his bed-room. The three sur
vivors were deeply grieved, but none of
them regarded the oath made under
the influence of wine as anything more
serious than an evening's passing jost.
Twelve days later, however, the mer'
chant, Kohn, was seized with inflamma
tion of the lungs, from a neglected cold,
and in two days he was dead. A horror
laid hold upon the two survivors, and
the kapelmeister, Rlauer, took to his
bed, lay ill for several days, and died on
the tenth dlay. At last accounts tho
lantlort was still in good health, though
ter'ribly oppressed hy the fear' of sudden
death.-- North Germ)an Gzette.
Thme First Mornmon Marriage.
The first "celestial marriage " oc

to a second wife. The first Mrs. Smith

In defiance of polygamy the examples of
Abraham, Isaao, Jacob, Moses, Joshtua,
David andI Solomon are cited, In oor
roboration of the " Book of Mormon "
we are pointed to the burned cities of
Palonvue and Uxmal, in Central America;
to the mounds in the Mississippi valley,
and to other well known vestiges of a pre
historio race. When a good Mormon
(lies who "' has lived up to his religion,"
and has had a dozen or two wives and
fifty or sixty children, he does not be
come a mere angel, like an ordianary
Christian-he becomes a godl, with a
world of his own to reign over. A Mor
'aan wife who o)poses the p)olygamouls
marriage of her husband goos to hell
and is " destrolyed." A Mormon who
obecys the mandates of the church in
most respects, but neglects to "go into
polygamy," becomes a mero angel,
w1ho must be a kind of celestial servant
to the gods and other angels. His wife
must sh are the sanme humiliating fate.
