By sunrise the entire population b up and

shoulder a hoe or a scythe, but the woman
falls iu aud works as welL Entire families,

Boys and girls are obliged to attend school
until tbey are 17, and If they do not the par
euU are fined. In the busiest irU of the
summer tb. season for gathering hops, mak
ing hay and other stated times a vacation is
given that the children may help in the fields.
But duriug any of these seasons, if it should
set In and rain, with no prospect uf sitting
soon, school is called again aud continued
during tbe wet weather. Then tbe teacher
lays aside his ferrule until tbe crops are in.
The laborers carry out their food for the day
w 1th them. The peasants live almost entirely
ou grain food and cheese. Milk aud butter
they exchange for other more mvmMtry aud
less luxurious articles.
A great ewrh in every German's life, and
especially the German peasant's, is the serv
ice In the great standing army. Every man
who it sound in body and not deformed tuutt
serve three year. Money or influeuce will
not exempt a man from this iron law. In
case be attends the university he shortens bit
time to one year. It in seldom, however, that
the pea s nt lad goes further than the school,
so that three years are taken from the uost
active period of his life.
During the winter the peasants are not so
busy as when planting and gathering tnair
crops. When tbe snow lies thick on the field
tbe men thrash out the grain and tbe women
spin and weav the flax, which tbey grow
thenixelve. Out of th long roll of this
heavy gray linen tbey make clothea and ar
ticles necessary for domestic use. A great
part of it, too, they store away for tbeir
rbildren, who, in their turn, preserve it for
tbaira, so tbat quantities are banded down
from mother to daughter, like tbe usual beir
looois of pewter tankard and spinuiiig
One of tbe customs among the peasantry
wbiufa doe not confine Itself to any special
season, although in accordance w ith th time
worn law is more prevalent In spring, is a
wedding. And tb preliminary arrange
ments are somewhat complicated. Every girl
Is expected to have ber dowry, consisting in
any can uf an entire household equipment,
from enormous feather beds to knives and
forks. Th young woman who comes with
out tliis supply generally feel pretty much
ashamed of hersaif. and the husband does not
receive ber with such Joy aa if she came laden

form of faith w hich, we are assured by Jean
Cahagnet, a writer aud traveler Just returned
from 1 'arsis, seems likely ere long to super
sede all the other forms of belief prevailing
iu that land. M. Cahagnet kindly translated
and furnished th editor with the following
sketch from the forthcoming work on the re
ligious beliefs of Persia:
It appear that a new religious sect baa
since 1M3 been organizing in central Asia,
and baa now become a powerful opponent to
Mohammed' adherent. Fortunately for tbe
progresa of tbe world, tbe founder, Mirxa
Ali-Mohammed, seems to have been In ad
vance of both Judaism and Islamism, hav
ing imitated neither the intolerance and self
rignteousnass of tbe former nor tbe f atailstlo
creed of the latter. This must be attributed to
tbe character of it founder, who. when only
18 year of age, began his missionary work, I
lur wnicn ne was qualified by natural genius,
also by earnest Inquiry Into the Scriptures,
the Koran, and by discussion with the Jew
of his country.

Islam priests could no longer Ignore the agi-
tation caved by this young preacher, o after
having beta ignominlously defeated by him
at a public conference, tbey arranged an ap
peal to tbe civil power. Bab and hi follow
era suffer I persecution, and this proved th
beginning if the spread of Babiam. Mission
aries were sent to Ispahan, to the north and

by tbe cm rgy and th king' agents, until

tion cont nued, and the punishment of th
captive w ts beyond measure cruel. Women
and childrm fearlessly marched to tbeir exe
cution, and itemed to rival each other in
