" What did you speak in that wam

old Uncle Rodgers o' his nephew.
Because it's fun to see her spark

like to make her black eyes shine, and
her round cheeks grow red as my

says 'sir.' fly the lnuses ! it' you'd

hers. It quite breaks the nionotony1

There was one disease. called the
Wlack death, the black pligue, or the
-rent mnortality. The most dreadful
visitation of it was one that began in
Chinaa, epreadi over Asia, and, in the
year 1348, entered Europe. Europe
was hOen, however, not unused to
plagues. Six others have made them
selves famous during' the preceeding
eight and forty years. The black
plague spread from the south of Eu
-ope to the north; occupying about
three year- in its pasSage. in two
years it had reached Sweden: In three
years it had conquered Russia. The
toital inifluence came among men ripe
to receive it. Europe was full of
pvt ty wars, Citizens were immured in
cities. ill unwholesme houses over
looking filthy streets, as in heleagued
fretresses, 1;r robbers, if not ariies,
occupied the roads beyond their gntes.
