It Seemed Strang to Him.
The old fellow bad evidently been busy
with her for some ' time, for the counter
was covered with the different styles which
he had shown and his patience was well
The lady, rising from the counter, asked
the salesman to take out four pieces of
different styles which she selected and to
lay them alongside of one another. She
then thus expressed herself:
"Now that first piece I think it beauti
ful, don't you?"
Salesman Yes, madam, that ft a very
Lndy But that second piece is too sweet
for anything. Do you sell much of that?
Salesman About 100 pieces so far this
Lady Indeed! But I don't think the
style of that third piece is very new. Have
you had that style lon?
Salesman Long is it? Begorrah it tnly
arrived la.st night.
Ijuly So 1 Now I really like the color
of that last piece best of all, but I don't
think it would be becoming to my friend,
Salesman-I am sure, mum. I can't say,
never having seen the lady.
Lady Oh, of course not. (Looks at them
Salesman (with a tired expression) I
think, mum, that you will lie pleased with
either of them.
Lady Think so? Well, I tell you what
it is. 1 am looking at these for a friend of
mine who is sick abed. Would you mind
giving me a sample of each of theso four
Salesman (giving her an ugly look, pro
ceeds to cut oil the samples, hands them to
her and says) This is the darndest country
I was iver in. Now in Ireland when a
woman is sick she sends for t lie doctor; but
here, begorrah, she sends for samples.

now Snake Swallows a Frog.
A snake usually seizes a frog by the hind
leg, but should it le taken by the middle
of the body it turns the frog around, by
dextrous movements of its jaws, till the
head comes to be directed toward the
snake, when it is swallowed head foremost.
It is swallowed whole, ami at first sight it
might seem an impossible thing for a
snake to swallow a creature much larger
and thicker than its own whole head and
neck. The fact is, that a serpent does not
so much swallow its prey as slowly drag
itself over the creature it devours, leing
enabled so to do by the elasticity of its
skin, and the extraordinary loose way in
which the bones of its head, especially its
teeth bearing bones, are connected to
The two halves of the lower jaw, instead
of being, as ia most animals, tighly bound
together in front, can be stretched very far
apart. Those bones also which compose
the upper jaw can be widely separated,
ami also separately moved, so that while
the frog is tightly held by someof thctooth
bearing bor.es. others can withdraw from
their first hold und r.gain implant their
teeth farther on. Thus by degrees the
frog is drawn within the gullet, or rather
the snake draws itself over it, and so en
gulfs the frog.
Kveu p.fttr the frog has passed down into
the snake's stomach its position is for a
time externally visible by the local en
largement. Digestion, however, takes
place very rapidly. The frog generally re
mains alive, not only while being eaten,
but for a short time after being swallowed.
The Nails from Jesus Hands.
The "Iron Crown," which worked up the
minds of the people of the Middle Ages to
such an extent as finally to Iiecoiua an ob
ject of worship is, in fact, a gold crown, the
secret magic of the name resting on the
tradition that the inside ring of iron was
made from the nails which were driven
through the hands of Jesus at the time of
But little is known concerning the his
tory of the iron crown until after the coro
nation of Agilulf. king .f the Ixmbards.
It is generally believed that it was made
for that monarch in the year 591. It was
used by Charlemagne and by all the, after
emperors of France, who were kings of the
Lombards. Napoleon put it on his head
when lie was in .Milan in lUi, saying, "God
hath given it to me."
This celebrated relic is now in Naples
among tiie state jewels. It was captured
and taken by the Austrian to Vienna in
but was returned to Italy in 1N)0.
Believers in the sacred hoop ot iron inside
the crown point to the fact that there is
not a speck of rust upon it. although near

All actual and permanent expansion and
integration of society proceeds from the
voluntary co-operative action of individ
uals. The social reformer, therefore, who
would work in harmony with the tendencies
and laws of nature must direct his efTorts
toward convincing the judgments und in
fluencing the motives and moral natures
of individual men and women rather than
toward forcibly changing the customs of
society by legnl enactments, official pro
nunciameutos or majority votes under the
white heat of an emotional political cam
paign. All of these popular and customary
agencies of political uction are doubtless of
some service as educational influences, in
citing thought among large classes of peo
ple who would therwise remain passive
pupjiets or unreflecting adherents of con
ventional social customs; but as means of
finally solving and disposing of social nnd
political problems the- are lamentable
failures. Dr. Lewis G. Janes in Popular

An old time English parish clerk was
much aggrieved because the new rector,
