A Modified Trrsoription.
Mr. Osoanyan, in his book ''The Sultan
and His People," K.iys that a Turk
physician was called to visit a man who
was very ill of typhus fever. The doctor
considered the case hopeless, but pre
scribed for the patient and took his leave.
The next, oay, in passing by, he inquired
of a servant at the door if his master was
"Dead!" was the reply; "no, he is much
The doctor hastened up stairs to obtain
the solution of the miracle.
"Why," s;iid the convalescent, "I was
consumed with thirst, and I drank a pail
ful of the juice of pickled cabbage."
"Wonderful!" quoth the doctor, and
out came tbe tablets, on which he made
this inscription: "Cured of typhus fever,
Mehemed -Agha, an upholsterer, by drink
ing a pailful of pickled cabliage juice."
Soon after the doctor was called to
another patient, a yaghlikgee, or dealer in
embroidered handkerchiefs, who was suffer
ing from the same malady. He forthwith
prescribed "a pailful of pickled cabbage
On calling the next day to congratulate
his patient on his recovery he was
astonished to be told that the man was

he came to the safe conclusion, and duly
noted it in his memoranda, that "although

A Brave Voting Barber.
Accounts of the frightful disaster at St.
Gervais state that hundreds of Jives were
saved by the action of a young Swiss
named Denzier, who was employed as a
barber in one of the hotels which were
wrecked by tbe avalanche.
Denzier was at work when the first ter
rible cracking sounds gave warning of
danger. The whole side of the mountain
instantly gave way; the solid buildings
swayed and crumbled beneath the feet like
dust; the people, stunned with horror,
rushed wildly here and there for escape,
but death faced them on every side. Den
zier alone was cool. He saw that there was
a chance of safety on the other side of the
torrent that swept down the mountain.
For a few brief minutes, the mass of
rocks, trees and shattered dwellings which
it carried down were blocked, gorged with
a narrow space of water in the centre.
Denzier, giving orders to the men, heaped
up over this space boxes, trunks, f urni
ture, doors dragged from the hotel, until a
bridge was made, across which he led the
terrified mob of people to safety.
The coolness and authority with which
this young peasant, in the face of an awful
death, controlled the men and women who
an hour before had regarded him as a
servant was the most remarkable feature
of the achievement. Not until the last
human being was in safety did he cross
himself. Youth's Companion.
A Story of Knblnt.
Between sixty and seventy years ago, In
a little city of Italy, there was, among oth
er choristers at tee opera nouse, a young
man named Rubini, who was very poor,
excessively modest and greatly beloved by
his comrades. In Italy at that time the
orchestra and choristers were badly paid.
The first violin was more than likely to be
at work all day in a bootmaker's shop.
This young man, in order to assist his
aged mother, united the functions of chor
ister to the more lucrative employment of
One day, when he had taken to Mozart's
house a pair of trousers, that illustrious
singer, after looking at him earnestly, said
to him kindly, "It appears to me, my good
fellow, that I have seen you somewhere."
"Quite likely, sir; you may have seen
me at the opera house, where I take a part
in the choruses."
"Have you a good voice?"
"Not remarkably, sir. I can with great
difficulty reach sol."
"Let me see," said Nozari, going to the
piano. liegin the scale." lnecnonster
obeyed, but when he reached sol he stopped
6hort, out of breath.
"Sound la come, try."
"Sir, I cannot."
"Sound la, I tell you."
"My dear sir, I cannot."
"Sound si, I tell you, or I'll"
"Don't get angry, sir, I'll try. La, si, la,
"I told you so!" said Nozari in a tone of
triumph. "And now, my good fellow, I
will say only one word to you. If you will
study and practice you will become the
first tenor in Italy."
Nozari was right. The poor tailor chor
ister had perseverance, and years later Ru
bini fulfilled Nozari's prophecy. Youth's

Contents of One Bag.
The other day a group of girls, each
with a shopping bag hanging like atrophy
at her belt, was sitting at lunch in an up
town restaurant. Some one dared the
girls to show tbe contents of their respec
tive bags, and such a motley collection of
trinkets as was forthwith displayed would
have discounted the total production of a
whole dozen of schoolboys' pockets. But
-he newspaper girl as usual was ahead.
And for any one who doubts the usefulness
of a shopping bag she submitted the fol
lowing little list of the contents of he
nwn very small one:
One notebook, one purse, three pencils,
one knife, two letters, one stampbox, on
handkerchief, t wo gloves, six hairpins, one
j;love buttoner, one railroad ticket, three
Leys, one watch, one veil twenty-five sep
l rate articles in this small receptacle.
This is an actual list, and although the
