The valley of Slieot -Shan produces the
w-ax inxeets, but t he v:ax is produced else
where. At the prop r season the scales
are detached from the ligiistrum and
made np into paper pr ckets of alxnit six
teen ounces each. A orter's load is alout
sixty of these packages, and t he duty of
the porters is to convc-y them with the ut
most speed over the n ountains, a distance
of SCO miles, to the town of Chia-ting,
which is the center of tk wax producing
The greatest care hiis to lie taken in the
carriage of tbe brittli scales, and the por
ters must only travel luring the night, as
the high temperature duriiu; the day will
develop the insects too rapidly, and they
may escape from their natural caires.
Wherever they stop for rest the porters
must open up their paper packets and
spread them in cool places, but with 11
precautions there is a large percentage of
loss upon the journey--t he packet s usually
weighing at Chia-ti ig each aiiout one
ounce lighter than w hti they left Sheoo
Shan. The usual price at Chia-ting for a pound
of scales is about half a crown, but in
years of scarcity this price has been dou
bled. A pound of s -aks ought to pro
duce from four to five pounds of wax, but
in bad years only pour d for pound is yield

very flnctnating. Cb imbers-' Journal.

Although an omuiorous reader, at least
so far as wholesome r barmless littrttture
was couctrned, there were some books for
which Judye B'.at-k ,eemed to have an es
pecial und insatiate fondness. First among
these stood the IJihl next Shakespeare,
and then Milton's " Paradise Lost." The
last he did not quote so frequently, although
be was fond of refer -ing to a rcugnifltu-iit

treasure in his libra -y, but with the first
two Lis whole menl il being soem'.;d to be
thoroughly saturate! so completely so,
indeed, that I have n doubt be could have
readily repeated th-t greater portion of
theiu word for word. Peculiar turns of
expression, and frequently entire sentences
from both, dropped iato his extern porane
ous speeches and social conversations, as
they often appeared in the more finished
productions of his pen, as naturally as the
most familiar phrawts in tbe vernacular.
Nor were these mire stock quotations,
grown threadbare from frequent use, as is
too often the case, bet seemed to the hearer
to have been coined expressly for the
