CURIOUS MANX LAWS.
Food and Drink Alone Are Taxed an
Debtors Are Imprisoned.
In some respects the Isle of Man is
one of the most backward portions of
the British empire. All the revenue is
raised by taxes on food and drink.
There are no death duties, no proper
ty tax, no land tax. The working
lasses are unprotected as well as over
taxed. No factory laws exist, and no
attempt has ever been made to limit
the hours of shop assistants, although

SAVED BY A GHOST.
Curious Story of a Specter and the
Lonely Yorkshire Moors.
It Is not often that we hear of a
ghost saving a man's life. There is.
however, an instance. and it seems to
be tolerably well authenticated. and
materialists will hardly know how to
account for it. Here Is the story. It
is of the Yorkshire dales and of a good
many years ago.
A clergyman whose duty lay in that
prild country. where a strong race of
men and women lived principally on
bacon and oatcake, used to ride or
walk to visit the people. He had been
raising a subscription in a time of
scarcity and had to be out late at night.
One evening on' his outward journey
be suddenly became aware of a figure
moving beside him, and in the gloam
ing he recognized his brother, who had
died some time before. He was too
awestruck for words. and after keep
ing by his side for some distance over
the lonely moor the figure disappear
ed. He noted the time and the vision,
but nothing occurred to throw any light
However, some years after he had
taken the duty at a jail In another part
of the country one of the prisoners ly
Ing under sentence desired to make a
confession. After telling him of a lot
of crimes he said: "I wor very near
once taking your life. sir. It was in
that bad year. and I heerd as how you
went carrying money about In those
lonesome dales. I bid behind the big
bowiders of the brown moor. I saw
you coming up and waited till you
should be near enough. but that night
you were not alone."
This is a startling tale and the
stronger because the vision or what
ever it was was seen by two people.
The anecdote occurs In an article twen
ty years ago in Macmillan's Magazine
by Lady Verney.
The "Baby Post" Once Did a Rushing
Business in England.
There once flourished in England a
regular "baby post." the rates of post
age being fixed on a strictly business
basis, according to distances traversed.
The curious institution came Into ex
istence In connection with the found
ling hospital in Guildford street. When
this charity was first established It
was understood that its operations
would be confined to London and its
environs. But the people of the coun
try towns and villages heard of it and
showed a decided disposition to share
in Its advantas; hence the "baby

When Buttens Were Unknown. t
How did the world manage for cen- z
tries without buttons? In early ages lI
they were unknown. The voluminous e
garments of oriental races are still at- ~
tached to their wearers by means of
straps, as were those of the Greeks and
Romans. The Normans were respon- a
sible for the Invention. The etymology
of the word points to the deriv'ation of e
the Idea. Bout, an end or extremity, ~
and bouter. to push, show that the
button was originally a push piece. like
the buttons of our modern electric
bells. The Normans probably conceiv
d the Idea from the rough knots of
their ftrniture, on which most likely
they hung their garments. Once In
