The nightingale sat on a bough
And smoothed a shining wing.
"Who taught yt n" scoffed the terrapin
"Who taught you how to sing?"
The nightinpraU blushed fiery red;
She bad not bn to school;
She mused on v. hat the tortoise said.
And sighed, " Twaa not by rule."
A rabbit skirted down the path,
A -dancing In the sun.
"Who tanght yoa" scoffed the terrapin
"Who taught you how to run?"
The rabbit bias led a fiery red.
He had not had a master.
Be flung hia het la against his head
And tried to ran the faster.
The nightingale she cracked her voice
Learning to si ig by rule.
The rabbit broka his forward leg
In a gymnasiE m school.
The terrapin, who could not sing.
Who could nor. follow after.
She eat beside hr native spring
And shook her sides with laughter.

A Wrinkle to Shopkeepers.
A srocer in Vienna (Xorth) has hit upon
an original plan of securing the custom of
all the servant girls in the neighborhood.
He has bought at tbe price of waste paper,
a shoal of "penny di-eadfuls," and uses the
single sheets for v rapping his wares in
such a way as to enable the kitchen or par
lor girl gradually to acquire the complete
work. Strange sceres are occasionally en
acted in the grocer' shop. We will give a

will you wrap it in the 'Son of the Ac
cursed,' number four. Ah! that's all

out of the third sheet of the 'Blind Man's
"Here, Fraulein Ixittchen, two pounds
of soap," says our tradesman, turning to a
third fair customer. "Please notice the
wrapper. It contaics the wonderful story
of the 'Marble Bride.' You shall have the
continuation the nuxt time, f come to
make a purchase," and addressing the as
sistant he calls out, "Fritz, put down Frau

There was a "bargain sale" of men's

lovely woman elboved and pushed and
scrimmaged her way, and stood ten deep
around the bargain t-ible, where an unfor

out checks all at one time.
Daring the afternoon a misguided man,
who probably had he ird of the sale, saun
tered into the store and approached the
wall of femininity wlich guarded theglove
counter. Then his courage failed him.
One glance of symrathy passed between
him and the wild eye I clerk over the shoul

sadly out and bought his gloves at a fur

No Daytim? Rurglary.
Burglary cannot iie committed in the
daytime. The Enplis-h rule is that if there
is light enough to ses the face of the in
truder there is no Inrglary. This, how
ever, does not include moonlight, for a
housebreaker entering after nightfall,
however brightly the moon may be shin
ing, is legally a burglar that is, if it is
reasonably certain that lie has entered
with the intent to commit felony, for
while a tramp breaking into a house to
sleep may 1 a housebreaker, he is not in
the proper sense of the word a burglar.
Burglary, however, may consist in break
ing out as well as broking in, for one who
hides in a house befire nightfall to steal
and after stealing hr aks out to get away
is just as much a bur -lar as he who to ef
fect his purpose brei.ks in. Interview in

It was not easy to l lake one's way into
Balzac's house, at Chaillot, Rue des Ba
tailles, for it was guarded like the garden
of the Hesjierides. Two or three p:ts
words were necessary, which were changed
frequently for fear they should become
known. I rvmeniber a few. To the porter
we said "the plum st ason hits come," on
which he allowed us t cross the threshold.
To the servant who rushed to the staircase
when the bell rang it was necessary to
murmur, "I bring sme Brussels lace,"
and if you assured him that "Mme. Ber
trand was quite well,' you were admitted
forthwith. This nons-nse amused Balzac
immensely, and it was perhaps necessary
to keep out bores and other visitors still
more disagreeable. Miss Wormley's Me
moir of Balzac.
His Cravn Error.
IIalf culture is a specially dangerous
condition, containing more pitfalls than
crass ignorance. A young man was admir
ing, in company with a young woman, a
picture of Savonarola.
"I must show you one I did abroad," said
she. "I painted him in his cell."
"Ah," exclaimed Le enthusiastically,
"a study from the original; that must be
choice indeed." Xew i'ork Times.
