Old Mr. Pepys and His Tamous Diary.
Some boys and pirls begin at a very early
age the practice of keeping a diary. But
very often the fever soon passes off, and
the record of their daily life comes to a
sudden stop somewhere, perhnpp, ubout the
middle of March.
But snppose you bave always kept a
diary with the greatest regularity. And
suppose you wrote down so many private
and secret things in this diary that you
thought it best always to writ in cipher.
Suppose, when you had reached manhood
or womanhood, these little books were care
fully laid aside by you and were at last
brought to public notice many, many years
after your death.
This is just what happened to Mr. Pepys
and his diary, lion would you like nil t he
little details of your every day life and your
opinions upon men and events to be printed
for the amusement of everybody.
Happily, for some, it was not known that
Samuel Pepys had left such a treasure be
hind him until more than seventy years
ago. Then the manuscript was brought to
light, deciphered and published to toe
world in the year 1815. Samuel Pepys was
born at I'rantpton, near Huntingdon, Eng
land. His diary extends from 15C0 to l.Vi'.i,
when failing eyesight compelled hiui to
He not only gives us much about hiniselt,
but much, too, a1out many great evciils.
We can see just how the plague and fire of
London were looked upon by the people of
But scarcely less interesting are the pri
vate details. Mr. Pepys was evidently very
careful aliotit his dress and very proud of a
new suit. "I'p early," he says, on the 13th
of the mouth, "t he first day t hat I put on my
black camlet t cloak with silver buttons."
Sometimes we are carried to a christen
ing. To one of these he tells us how he car
ried in, his pocket six silver spoons and a
silver porringer, expecting that the child
would be named after him. But the parents
named the lxiy John, instead of Samuel; so
careful Mr. Pepys carried the spoons and
porringer home again.
A loe and Her Fawn.
The following pretty tale of the woods is
told in Golden IJays: "While two men were
riding along a creek in California they
saw some distance ahead a doe and her
fawn drinking from the stream. The bank
was very steep and the water quite deep at
this point. When the deer saw the hunters
theywere startled, and in attempting to
turn the little fawn lost its balance and
fell into the creek. The water runs very
swiftly in this creek, and of course the
fawn was carried down stream, and the
mother deer, apparently losing all fear of
the human spectators, ran along the bank,
trying to reach her offspring with her
head. Failing in this she ran forward for
some little distance, plunged in, braced
her feet in the crevices of the rocks and
waited. Presently the fawn was washed
against her and instinctively clasped her
neck with its forelegs, and the doe care
fully regained the bank. There she Jay
down with the baby deer, and, although
the two men were not thirty feet away,
the doe licked and fondled the fawn until
it rose to its feet, and then the two animals
trotted off into the adjoining woods."
Happy, Though I'nequal In Ape.
Dr. Johnson's wife was old enough to be
his mother, but "he continued to be tinder
the illusions of the wedding day until she
died at the age of sixty-four," he being only
