BELLS AND THEIR INSCRIPTIONS.
SutSeMive .Mot torn Kngravrd nn Some of
the Old Kntllsh Cathedral Bella.
The (treat bell of Cologne cathedral,
known as the "emperor bell." bason one
pide inscribed asextetin Herman, of which
the translation is:
1 am railed the emperor's bell:
1 proclaim the emperor's honor;
On the holy watch tower I am placed.
I pray for the Herman empire,
'J'liut peace and protection
(!od may ever tfrant to it.
It may be added that no less than twenty
two cannons taken from the French were
assigned by the kaiser for the manufacture
of t his great bell.
The largest of the Westminster abbey
bells bears this inscription:

On a couple of Lincolnshire bells one of
1SH7, the other of l)8-we have the follow
ing: When female virtue weds with manly worth
We catch the rapture and we spread it forth.
Very often t lie happy pair are reminded
of the transitoriness of liunmu existence
and of the end of all things. Here is a
specimen of this kind of inscription from
Bake well, IT'.i:
When men in Hymen's hands unite,
);ir merry penis produce delight;
Hut when death Koe his dreary rounds
We send forth sad mid solemn sounds.
A very suggestive inscription is that on
the bell at llougii-on-tlie -Hill, Lincoln
shire. It is dated lfKls, hh,1 runs a3 follows:
When you hear this mournful pound.
Prepare yourself for underground.
Each bell in a peal at St. Michael's. Co
ventry, if we are to judge from t he mot toes,
had a special use of its ow n. Thus Xo. 4
was evidently the workmen's bell:
I ring at six to let men know
When to and from their work to go.
Xo. T was the 111 for summoning wor
shipers to church:

Watermarks in Taper.
The first, watermark oa record was a
coat of arms of a town. The early paper
makers were not slow to adopt this idea of
impressing upon t heir sheet-t he device of
the place when- their miil was situated.
For instance, t lie cat of arms of the vil
lager. f Hive-, a dolphin, is m common mark
on old pap.-rs. This mark isstiil in use to
day. The lir-t- use of a w.-'termark then
was a signature or emblem lo point, out
the place of manufacture and to recom
mend the material. For all that, says The
Paper Kecord. certain of tlie-e emblem
were used by different makers and even in
lilTcrent count l ies wii ii slight variations,
brisuies a they are called in heraldry,
which were evident iv ti. .r accidental, h i'
intentional. The lelter"P," used liy in:ru-berh-ss
maker-, is a good watermark to
take as an example, since we find that not,
only is there an e!idle-s variety of forms of
;he letter in t he product of different mills,
but. that t he s-tnie maker modified the lei
sures of t he letter on different qualities of
his paper. Another use of the watermark
is more evident still. The names of the
principal sizes of paper suggested water
marks. In the Fourteenth and Fifteenth
centuries t he memtiers of each trade guild
were compelled to mark t heir merchandise,
it h i lie seal ,,f their gu:ld. If they did
I. oldo so they were lined.

The corn .pi.i is the favorite emblem
of plenty. Ceres is ilra'wii with a ram's
horn in her left arm, tilled with fruit and
flowers. Soi i n t nne- these are being poured

In Libya there is a strip of land shaped

England, and the meeting was held by the

"To I'ass the Knhicoii."
Rubicon is the ancient name of a small
St ream t bought to be I lie modern Pisatello
which formed the Ixiundnry la-tween
Italy and Cisalpine Haul. It. is celebrated
from Osar's having hesitated about cross
ing it with his army, and initiating civil
war, iu the year 4'.l 15. C. When he came
to the river he paused upon the brink, but
finally saying, "The die is cast!" he spurred
on his horse and dashed into the water.
Hence, "To pass the Rubicon-' has become
a proverbial phrase to denote the taking of
the first step in a momentous undertaking
from which one cannot or will not recede.
A Miniature Fountain.
Take an ounce vial and fill it three quar
ters full of water, then make a hole in the
cork and iusert a small tiilie or a stout
piece of straw. The opening must lie as
small as possible, the tube must reach
nearly to the bottom of t.he vial and the
cork must lie pushed in tight. Xow, says
Golden Days, if you blow into the tulie,
the air will be compressed in the upper
part of the Untie, ami, when your lips are
taken away, a little fountain will play
from the tube for a short, time.
