The 8-yoar-old boy had been to Sun
day school, whore tho teacher bad told
the class the story of Moses leading the
children of Israel through the Red Soa;
how the wators were divided, and
Moses and his people passed over on
dry land, and how, when Pharaoh and
his hosts attempted to follow, the wa
ters closed and destroyed them. The
little fellow, walking home with his
father, asked him if he believed the
story. The father replied, "Yes. rny
on, of courso I do. It la In the Bible,
and I believe evervthlnn In the Bible.1'
J'he boy remainod silent for a lew min
utes when he said: "Pa, would you
believe that story if it was In the newt
papers?'1 Pa had been a candidate for
office, and the boy had heard him make
some disparaging remarks touching
the reliability of newspapers.
One of the gems in the collection of
diamonds . owned by the Duke of
Brunswick and presented to the city of
Geneva, is now owuod by a gentlemau
in Boston. It was purchased at a sale
of the Duko's ellwts for 28,000 francs.
The stone was a Brazilian of twenty
six carat weight, andswa specially
cut by ordor of the Duke in the form of
a star. In the tedious process of re
ducing itto this form, which occupied
over two years, the gem lost nearly
two-ihirds of its weight, its present
status being nine and fifteen-sixteenth
carats. The stone, says the Boston
JhruUl, is acknowledged . to be the on

A new pnjoct for the exploration of

the Lille Geographical' society by AI.
Icon Lacrolx. The extensive region
comprised in the general limits marked
by the River Congo on the South, tho
Bine mountains and the White Nile on
the east, the country of Darfur, the
Rivers Sharl and Binne on the north,
and the coa.H of Guinea on the west,
nre as yet almost entirely unexplored.
It Is this region which AI. Laeroix de
sires to penolrate. AI. do Brazza is at
tacking it from the wet by ascending

wishes to start from the eaat. lie pro
poses to ascend by the White Nile ami
by one of its affluents, the Djiottr, to
the neighborhood "f the sources of the

from the explorations of Ilerr Schwein

Silk fir4 came from China, and the
Chinese still have muny important se
crets connected with it unknown to Eu
ropeans. In a good year they send ai

books, as they are called, arrive with
sips made of a single cocoon. This is
done by a process unknown in Kurope.
luslf Arbeely, who with his wife
