! THE COULER j
In mountain girt Salzburg, noted
if only f?r being t?e birthplace o?
Mozart, there dwelt once a shoe
maker of the name of Siebold Veit.
Notwithstanding the lowliness of
his station, this disciple of St. Cris
pin burned incense assiduously be
fore the muses. Like tho village
Jlilton immortalized by Gray, Herr
Veit had been] debarred in youth by
..chiU penury*] from the "acquisition

brought him many a recompensing
opportunity for a glan?o' at the
pages of wisdom- All was grist that
Gravitated to our shoemaker's men
tal millstones, and the stores acquir
ed thus promiscuously from reading
ind hearsay were never lost or suf
fered to molder for want of expres
sion. Indeed his application of
what he gleaned was frequently so
inopportune as to excite the hearty
laughter of his honest but critical
neighbors. Yet he paid little heed
to Tlieir merriment and today was
is ready to excuso whe shortness of
their boots with "brevity is the soul
of wit" as to assure them tomorrow
that their old sho?- were brought
'.never too late to mend."
Siebold . was a bachelor from
choice, but often let parts of the
house, a quaint red tiled, low ridged,
many gabled dwelling at tho end of
one of the serpentine streets char
acteristic of Salzburg. At the time
wc peep into his life we find him
landlord of Gabriel Stoss, a student.
Herr Yeit's proximity to so animat
ed a cyclopedia proved such a stim
ulant to his love for learning as to
be well nigh inebriating. The mere
creak of the stair as the scholar
went to and fro was suiEcient to
make the shoemaker's imagination
reel in visions of the feast of reason
that the very steps groaned to sup
Occasionally in the evenings the
student would drop into his host's
cozy workroom and read him ver
sions of the Greek and Eoman writ
er; and, carried along by his listen
ers whole souled attention and un
disguised rapture, would not infrer
quently continue, the inspiriting
myths away into the night. At
such times the simple toiler's de
light culminated in nothing short
bf ecstasy. Once when the student
had retired with his little red mar
gined volume of legends his aclmir
ing auditor actually stole iuto the
vacated chair to satisfy himself that
an exchange of seats did not entail,
a priori, a transfer of knowledge
and hastened to bed, where before
long he lost sight of sordid and
hampering reality in the blissful
ness of a dream that brought in its
sequence the attainments of tho
professor of ancient languages in
the very college attended by his
One summer evening, having^fin
ished his work early, the shoemaker
sauntered out upon his porch to
smoke anti meditate the whiie on a
recent narration of the student's.
Thc story took his fancy so much
as to incite him to action. During
Herr Veit's musings the sun set.
The retired street grew still and
dark. Lights appeared here and
there behind small diamond shaped
panes and emphasize! the descent
of night. Suddenly knocking the
ashes from his meerschaum, the
shoemaker entered his domicile and,
acting upon his cogitations, took
.down his time worn fiddle and drew
from it a few strains, a return to
his former mistress, music. Away
back in his youth he couldrecall the
ays when he handled the bow with
o mean skill, but for many a year
e had neglected music to delve in
'ie moro alluring field of letters,
ow again he applied himself to his
strument with a fervor which
ade use pf every spare moment
itil his old art returned so rav
hingly that the wondering neigh
ors strayed in to hear him at his
ew caprice. But they withdrew

iey would to refrain from smiles,

It was on a morning after ho had
en practicing five months that
e shoemaker closed his shop, lock
up his rooms and, mounting the
eP, bare steps that led to his
'ger's quarters, left the key with
oriel, adding that he was not to

e fresh air seemed to impart un
ated buoyancy to Herr Veit. Ho
?de lustily on and soon passed
che open country adjacent to the
city. Uplands and lowlands he
traversed for several days, pausing
often to break the stillness of dell
and glade with tho dulcet voico of
At last he came upon a hamlet
nestling, like his own picturesque
town, in a stream threaded valley at
tl>e fo^t of a range of hills. The
dampness of the day veiled the hill
tops heavily in mist, a circumstance
which seemed to disturb the simple
villagers very much. They were
gathered in a knot in front of the
mountains regarding wistfully the
summits of the nearest range. The
wandering musician, following the
path that skirted the base of tho
hills, loomed suddenly in sight, and
with one impulse tho peasants hail
ed him as a being sent from other
realms, to aid them perhaps. They
conjured him to disperse the clouds
that for severs! da}'? bad hung about
th? mountains and prevented their
getting to their flocks grazing on the
The traveler replied serenely in
an unintelligible dialect that the
clouds certainly were fine evidences
of a dull day, but that the herdsmen
were not to be further alarmed, as
he was provided with the sovereign
remedy for such exigencies. Seat
ing himself on a stump near by,Herr
Veit began confidently to woo the
sun god with sweet music. The
anxious rustics concluded that this
procedure was tho magical way to
dissipate the mists and went by twos
and threes contentedly about their
various callings. .
As the hours wore away, howev
er, with no marked lightening of
the atmosphere, the people began
to doubt the stranger's power and
to exhibit signs of impatience, some
manifestations being so stormy as to
affect the musician and his meas
ures tremulously. Phoebus, too, ap
parently was angry, for, though
Herr Veit, with his liveliest notes,
besought an audience, the day closed
unblessed with a glimpse of the sim
god's radiance. As the night be
came darker and darker the music
grew more and moro faint, but it
was only when the weariest villagers
had sunk to rest that tho melody
ceased. In order to give tb?ir
would be deliverer sufficient time,
the inhabitants had resolved to leave

ing day. Bright and early next
morning the sun appeared, but long

One evening soon after Herr
Voit's return the student was asked
? to sup with him, and over the cof
fee tne adventure was recounted.

the ramparts of Thebes are reputed
to have arisen, for when the episode

reflected that in the olden time it
must have been no small matter to

unusual, probably nothing will ever
surpass tne charge of t^he French
General Pichegru's cavalry in 1795,
made upon the Dutch fleet, fast

and shows itself by sluggishness of
thought ard diminution of mental
vigor. Tho brain and the stomach
cannot perform their functions to
the host advantage at tho same time.
During the process of digestion
the stomach requires moro blood j
than it does at other times, and a
certain proportion of this extra sup- !
ply is drawn from the brain. Lf,
however, the brain is forced to work
during the period of active diges
tion, the stomach will bo deprived'
of a certain proportion of the blood
it requires. Activity of tho mind
necessitates an increnscd flow of
blood to tho brain, and as tho power
of thought is to a certain extent
controlled by tho will, while tho
process of digestion is not, it nat
urally follows that when thought
and digestion ate carried on simul
taneously the brain will always take
the blood needed by the stomach.
If this is a habitual oc^.irrence, it
soon leads to pronounced dyspepsia,
and chronic dyspepsia in its turn,
by irritation of the nervous system,
incapacitates even an abnormally]
vigorous brain from accomplishing
its best work.
"Like Silly Sheep."
"It takes a rancher to appreciate
the expression *Like silly sneep/"
declared a western cattleman. "I
had several thousand sheep on my
ranch at one time, but I was cured
of raising them by their own eternal
dumbness. One limo we were'driv
ing a flock to market when ono of
the leaders leaped into the air, and
after the habit, of sheep every one
made a similar leap when it came to
that spot. This is such a common
trick with sheep that wo thought
nothing of it until wo noticed* t it
the sheep disappeared after leaping.
By quick work we stopped the per
formance and found that the trail
had been broken by a cave in and
the sheep when they came to the
brink simply leaped frantically, and
went down into a hole thirty feet
deep. Before we could get them
out nineteen were smothered to
death."-New York Times.
Currie of Edinburgh employed a
thermometer in the treatment of
typhoid fever patients with the cold
douche os early as 1797. He was
ridiculed by his German contempo
raries as an instance of medical de
cay in English medicine. The first
clinical application of the thermom
eter was made by Sontorius of ?Pa
dua. He invented a thermometer
open at tho end. After being held
by the patient it was plunged into
cold water. Boerhave* taught the
importance of the thermometer.
De Hoon-1704 to 177G-must be
given the honor of introducing the
thermometer into current use at the
bedside. It was not until 1850 to
1870 that it came into general use.
Burled In Woolen.
In looking through any old par

mentioned that the deceased was
buried in woolen. There was passed
in 1678 an act requiring, on pain of
a fine of $25, that an affidavit
should be made within eight days
after a death before a justice of the
peace or a minister of religion thai
the deceased was buried only in
wool. Its object was tho encourage
ment of a native industry by the
lessening of the importation of lin
en from beyond the seas.
