Incident In the life of Haharam V of
the. Bassanlan dynasty. Kaharuiu. ac

.wonderful archer During cue of his
bunting ezpedttJofa, <>u which his fa?
vorite wife ?had accompanied him, he
?hot a sleeping antelope \?lth such pre?
cision as to grase tin- animal's oar.
The antelope a?v??kt- and, believing
himself snnoyed by a fly, put his hind
hoof to bis ?>ar to strike oft the fly. A
?econd arrow sent by the royal hand
fixed the antelope's h????f to his horn.
The king's wife merely said. "Prac
ttee makes perf?-ct." which touched the
pride of her royal spouse.
Indeed, as the penalty for her plain
?peaking, she waa Benl oat into the
mountains to perish, luit iustead found
shelter in a village. Here she lodged
in an upper room aeceoded by 20 steps
and, baring bought a calf, carried it
np and down every ?lay. The king.
passing by four years later, was amaz?
ed at seeing a young woman carrying
a cow up a flight of 20 stops. The lady
again took occasion to remark. -Prac?
tice makes perfect." whereupon she

In France the peasantry still stick to
medicines calculated to turn the aver?
age doctor*a hair gray with horror.
Wine Is an Ingredient of every pre?
scription.? In fever cases It Is always
the predominant one. The French
peasant's faith in fermented grape
juice Is truly beautiful.
If his children are stricken with the
measles, he gives them wine well
sweetened with honey ami highly spic?
ed with pepper. For a severe cold he
administers a quart of red wine and a
melted tallow candle mixed. For scar?
let or brain fever he gives eggs, white
.wine and soot well beaten together.

The heartless landlord has come to
evict the widow with 18 children,
many of whom are teething.
But at the threshold the woman
.waves him back Imperiously.
"Not today!" she cries.
"Why not?" asks the landlord, with
"Because," the woman replied, "no
pitiless storm of rain mingled with icy
sleet rages without!"
__ The landlord grinds his teeth In Im?
potent rage. He may trample under
foot the promptings of his better na?
ture, but not the conventionalities es?

Human happiness, according to the
most received notions, seems to consist
of three Ingredients, action, pleasure
and Indolence. And though these In?
gredients ought to be mixed In differ?
ent proportions, according to the par?
ticular disposition of the person, yet no
one Ingredient can be entirely wanting
without destroying in some measure
the relish of the whole composition.
Habit hath so vast a prevalence over
the human mind that there Is scarcely
anything too strange or too strong to
be asserted of It. The story of the
miser who, from being long accustom
?d to cheat others, came at last to
cheat himself and with great delight
and triumph picked his own pocket of
a guinea to convey to his board is not
Impossible or lmprotable.
