THE DEVIL'S CODE.
Legend of a Monk, Satan and a
Quick Night's Work.
learson 's W'eekl.
St(ckliolm's publie library contains
a wmiderrul work w-hich is called
"The Devil's Code'' and which, in
a(dition to its extraonimary name.
is said to he the higgest manuscript
in the world. Every letter is most
beautifully drawn, and the magni
tude of the work is so great. that it
seems impossible for any single monk
to have done it.
-The storv of the origin of the man
uscript. however, not only gives it
as the work of one man, but also
states it to be the work of a single
night. The story runs as follows:
''A poor monk had been condemn
ed to death, but was told mockingly
by his judges that if he was able to
copy the whole 'Code' between dark
ness and dawn he would be saved.
Relying upon -the impossibility of the
task, those who sentenced him fur
nished him with the original copy of
the 'Code' with pen, ink and parch
ment, and left him.
"Death must have been . as little
liked in the middle ages as it is now,
for the monk, forgetting the hopeless
ness of his task, commenced it. Be
fore long, however, he saw that he
could not save his own life by such
weak exertions, and,ifearing a cruel
and horribld death, he iivoked the
aid of the prince of darkness, promis
ing to surrender his soul if he was:
assisted in the task.
" The devil obliged him by appear
ing on the erot, acceptedJ the con
tract and sat down to the wrk, and
nexi. mor'0; 'The Devil's Code' was
iunished, the monk being fon,i dead.

Planting the-Seed in the House.
Samuel Armstrong Hamilton in Wo
man 's Home Companion for March.
For this purpose make out of any
ki1d of boxes what the florists call
"flats,'' namely, wooden boxes one
foot by two, and two and one-half
inches deep. In these put a mixture
:f half sand and loam, made very fine,
and drop on the top the seeds so that
the seedlings will come up an inch
apart, covering with, fine soil. When
the yopng seedlings are just abo-ve the
top of the soil, keep them on the dry
side, as there is great danger at this
time of "damping off,'' a fungous
disea.se which affecfs seedlings at 'this
stage of their growth. When they are
tw o inches high prick them out to two
inches apart in other flats and when
four inches high pot off into two-and
one-half-inch pots. When these are
filled w ith roots, shift the plants into
four-inch ones, pinching out the tops
to make them stocky, which will re
sut in more bloom later on when they
are set in the beds.
In the section of the country in the
latitude of New York, -start seeds in
the flats in March, and keep in a tem
perature of sixty-five degrees. When
they get into four-inch pots they will
have to be held back a little by
being put into a cooler place, about
sixty drgees, or they will grow too
spindly. Should the season outside be
late. and the plants be in bud before
the time for planting them out ar:
rives, put them in a cool cellar, where
you can "hold'' them for two weeks
A general rule to-be remembered by
all who grow annuals is that the seed
pods should be picked off as soon as
formed, or the flowers cut before they
die, in order to keep them blooming
all the season, as many of the finest
ones stop blooming as soon as they
~hae formed perfect seed!
Sir Henry hying used to tell with
glee of a joke that he with Mr'.
Toole, the comedian, and a third par
ty, played on one occasion at a G4las
After their work they were sup-.
ping at the hotel, and there was in the
room a high screen. The instant the
waiter was gone they commenced op
erations. They stripped the silver
ware, of which there was a tolerable
supply, from the table and placed it
behind the screen. They then open
ed the window and turned out the gas,
and finally all got under the table.
The jokers had only to remain in
their cramped position a few minutes
before they heard the unsteady feet
of the waiter along the passage. The
darkened room amazed him, and the
eold air from the window seemed to
Istrike him with affright.
"Goodness!'' exclaimed he. "It's
thieves they are. I thocht as much
fra the luiks o' them and frae their
gay talk and their lauchin'. Elh, but
I'm a ruined man! I wish I hadna
taken the hale o' that last bottle!

assets. The reverse will be your loss.
Be courteous. Do not thrust your own
troubles and inharmony upon those
around you. It is a poor investment.
6. Be conscientious. Don't take too
much interest in ball games, theaters,
parties, etc., or you may find that
you have not much time left to give
to your work.Don't have a relative

S. Do not let your thoughts be al
ways wool-gathering if you expect
to earn an increase in salary on pay
9. Do not shirk Your work and be
always thinking of the money side of
the proposition. Give good value for
the money you receive and you will be
sure to succeed.
10. Put yourself in your employer's
place and figure -out what kind of an
employer you would hire to get the
most out of your business. Then set
ouielf to try to be that employer.
11. There is no short, easy road to
success, but it is well worth traveling.
