Some of the signs upon ians and ale-
houses were adorned by very curiou
specimens of poetry. One man, havin
opened an ale house caLJecL the White
Horse, near four*thei3 balled respect
ively the Bear, ftie^n^el, the Ship, and
the Three Cups, wrote under his sign:
'My White Hwcse. shall bite the Bear,
And make the Angel fly?
Shall turn the Ship her hottom up,
And drink tlf* ^hfee quj^dry.')
whdthe dr no
"Stop brave boys ab$!ueneh your thirst,
If you won't drink your horses murst."
Another very quaint inscription was
touud under-the sign of the Pox at av
"I. liam. a. cunen. fox

The origin of the striped poles which
are still used as signs for a babershops,
and the three balls which denote a pawn-,
broker's establishment, are so well known,
that we almost fear to speak of them
here. As, however, it is possible that
some may not have heard them, we will
venture. Th^e-barkers' poles date back
to the days'when tlie remedy for almost
evtry disease was bleeding, and then the
barbers were the regular blbJd-retters
The patient Whowasildesirous ot being
bled was obliged to grasp a pole, which
was suppose to make the blood
flow more freely. As the PIe
was liable to be stained it was painted
red. When it was not in use the white
linen bandages "necessary .in the opera
tion were twisted, around it, and it was
huoa outside the door, as the most con
venient place of keeping it. In this way
it came to be regognij^d as the regular
sign of a barber shopfand the custom is
kept UD to this day. At one time barbet
ers were obliged to put out' a blue and
The three balls''of'-the pawnbrokers'
sign are part of the coat-of arms of Lom
bardy, from which thefirst bankers came.
In old times bankers. used to advance
money on valuables, anil thus were grad
ually transformed into pawn-brokers. At
I first the bails4were
always painted with
i a blue color, and it is only quite lately
that they have beenjlded.

.1 Cane, of Cotd' Teiriperament.
A case is reported of a man .freezing to
death the other day near' Meridian,'iftiss.,
from exposure to the weather, and the sum
mer is not remarkably cool in the south
either. In fact the thermometer marked 90
degrees where the freezing was done. He
was a young mari named James- Knox who
presented this anomaly in nature. He had
been suffering with cold continually for
about a year, and required heavy wraps and
big fires to exist at all. In the meantime
ihe temperature of his "body was nearly
normal, and he was otherwise healthy and
fresh looking. At home he was accustomed
to wrap his head up in clothes and hold it
in a blazing fire until the clothes were al
most burned off, to get temporary relief. He
sat by the fire all the. time, and resorted to
various expedients to get- warm and keep,
warm, but he always felt as if he were freez
ing. The family doctor was -greatly puzzled
over the ease,/and recommended him to
visit another physcian living a distance in
Livingston. The only question was whether
he could make the trip without freezing to
death. But he managed to make it, loaded
down with clothes and piled over with robes.
He came near dying with cold in Dr. Webb's
office, and the doctor built a great fire and
partially thawed him out. But the new
physician could make nothing of the case
a nd sent the patient home. I was on the
trip homeward that James Knox froze to
death under the hot son of the south. His
cold became,unbearable, and he jumped oat
of the wagon and ran. The driver caught
him, brought him back, and drove on rapid
ly. Presently the patient became quiet and
sank in a stupor, and James Knox actually
froze to death and lay a corpseinthe wagon,
bed under the blazing sun of Mississipi
with the temperature at 90. It is an
anomalous case for the books.
