over feed the plant at one
time and starve at another.

aire named Leonard took a trip to
Peru some years ago. He saw great
flocks of the alpaca wandering on the
ndes. Beit:; a woolgrower himself.
he was struck with their splendid 1
fleece. Ile resolved to buy some and
take them horme. le found that the
Peruvian government absolutely pro
hitted their export. He triad by
chartering a special ship to smuggle
some off. but was unsuccessful. Then
the idea occurred to him of taking
them out of the country eastward. He a
boiaht a large flock. engaged trusty .
men and had the creatures driven
over the passtNs. IS.OuO feet above sea
level. and then clean acros the conti
nent to Buenos Aires. This little ex- C
pedition cost him S13.000. But the
long march had so weakened the al
pacas that they all died on the voyage.

The Wealth of Croesus.
Croesus wats the king of Lydia, a
state in Asia Mlizor. and ascended the
throne about Z,4m B. C. His name has
ever been a synonym for wealth, "as
rich as Croess having been a prov
erb from his own time, but the most
liberal estimates of his property. so C
far as descriptions of it have come
down to us. make it worth in our
money about $10.000.000. His riches
were derived from gold mines near
Sards, the capital of Lydia. and from
the plunder of numerous surro'.ndingi
staes. The kingdom of Lydia was;
overrun by Cyrus. the Persian con
queror. and, according to the best au
thorities, Croesus was taken prisonerI
and kept in the train of Cyrus. The
court of Croesus iyas considered one
of the most retined and elegant of au

palace and the other magnificent build
