An Aid to Memory.
J. M. Caldwell, in "Old Irish Life,''
tells a story ot a young peasant woman,
Sally Sweeny, who used to walk into
Galway twice a week to do shopping
for her family when they lived in the
country, says the Detroit Free Press.
She could neither read nor write, yet
she never made a mistake with any of
the messages that were intrusted to
her. Once, however, her memory did
fail her. One of the ladies of the family
had ordered her to bring back a
yard of some color of satin, and the
unaccustomed word slipped out of
Sally's recollection. But she did not
allow herself to be beaten without an
eltort to recall the word, so she went
into the principal chop in Gal way still
"What is't that ye call the divil."
she asked, "whin it's not divil that ye
say to him?"
"Is it Satan you would be meaning?"
asked the astonished draper.
"The very wan," said Sally delightedly.
"An' ye* 11 give me a yard."
