A MIDGET'S CRADLE.
The Story ..f French Dwarf Who Llred
In a Shoe.
There is a nursery rhyme about
An old woman who lived In a shoe,
but whether hei children, who were so
She didn't know what to do
with them, lived there also, is not quite
clear. Probably their IjhIs were elsewhere.
It has always appeared to us rather unlike
ly that any lady could live in a shoe, how
ever small she might be. But, if one can
believe all cne reads, a French dwarf cer
tainly did live in a shoe for the first six
months of Lis life.
A BABY THAT LIVED IS A SHOE.
Following is the story as it is told: A
peasant woLian in France had a baby so
small that the clothing she had made
ready for it was of no use and she was
obliged to d-ess it in some doll's clothes.
When she was goiug to take the little
creature to t e christened she was in a fresh
difficulty, for he was too small to be car
ried on the jirm in the usual way. But a
happy thought struck her. The French
peasantry w ar shoes made of wood, which
they call sab ts. Taking one of her own
shoes, the woman made a little bed in it,
in which shi- placed her tiny son, and so
carried him comfortably to church. Find
ing that the ivooden shoe was better than
anything els for the purpose, she used it
for his cradl , and there he usually lay and
slept until he was six months old.
The Reat Prize.
Every session an award of prizes was
made in Wi: ie's fchool, and he was anx
ious to merit one of them. Willie was be
hind the oilier boys in all studies except
writing. As he had no hope to excel in
anything but writing, he made np his
mind to try for the special prize for that
with all his might. And he did try, so
that his copy book would have done honor
to a boy twice his age. When the prizes
were awarded thechairmanof the commit
tee held np two copy books and said: It
would be diiEcult to say which of these
two books is better than the other, but for
one copy in Willie's, which is not only su
perior to Charlie's, but to every other copy
in the same book, This copy, therefore,
gains the pri::e."
Willie's hej.rt beat high with hope, not
unmixed w th fear. Blushing to his
temples, he (aid, "Please, sir, may I see
"Certainly.'' said the chairman, looking
Willie glaticed at the copy, and then,
handing the liook back, he said: "Please,
sir, that is not my writing. It was written
byanopper olass boy who took my book
by mistake one day instead of his own."
The chairrian and committee were so
pleased with Willie's honesty and truthful
ness that although they could not give him
what was called "the first prize," they
gave him another, and it was really "the
best prize." The School Visitor.
Taught by an Insect.
Mark Gamlard Brunei, the famous engi
neer, claimed that he was indebted to an
insect for a great and useful invention.
The story, as told in Golden Days, is as fol
lows: Brunei was one day in a shipyard watch
ingthe movei tents of an insect known as
the teredo navalis in English, the naval
wood worm when a brilliant thought sud
denly occurre I to him. He saw that this
creature bored its way into a piece of wood
upon which it was operating by means of
a very extraor linary mechanical apparatus.
Looking at the animal attentively through
a microscope, he found that it was covered
in front with a pair of valvular shells;
that, with its foot as a purchase, it com
municated a rotary motion and a forward
impulse to the valves, which, acting upon
the wood like a gimlet, penetrated its sub
stance, and that, as the particles of wood
were loosened, they passed through a fis
sure in the fxt, and thence through the
body of the borer to its mouth, where they
"Here," said Brunei to himself, "is the
sort of thing I want. Can I reproduce it
in an artificial form?"
He forthwith set to work, and the final
result of his labors, after many failures,
was the famo is boring shield with which
the Thames tunnel was excavated.
