The proprietor of a large wholesale dry
fsods establishmet t who is much inter
acted in a fishing imd hunting club had
sonsigned to him fnm abroad some years
ago a number of jiairs of large English
bares. Upon the ai rival of the steamship
In port the animals were transferred to the
cellar of the dry goods store preparatory to
(hipping them to the Long Island Hunting
In some manner or other three of the
creatures escaped and ranged at will
among the packing boxes and bales of
goods. The proprietor was disgusted
enough, but failing to capture the animal"
In a day or two, he sent the others away,
and to prevent injury to the merchandise
in the cellar announced that the hares at
large should be. killeL Such a rnlbit
roursing as followed was never known be
fore, but in the end itae three half starved,
gaunt and lean aninals lay dead in thf
An illiterate Eur ishniHn kept a small
fruit and candy staii A on the corner in front
of the store. In return for his privilege he
swept the sidewalks and took care of the
gutters. The porur pve this man the
hares to dispose of. The Englishman, hnv
Ing an eye to business, exposed them on his
stand for sale, bnt ti e ill favored creatures
found no purchasers the first day.
"I'll tell you what s the matter," said a
mischievous office hoy to the fruitman the
following morning. "People don't notice
the hares. You ong it to have a sign to at
tract their attention. I'll paint one for

EXTRAORD1N RY BARGAIN. :
! Hairs Been I) a.l One Week. :
: Fifty Ct nts Each. :
This sign the Kngl simian tacked to his
stand and calmly awiited a customer. It
is needless to say that the. latter never
came, but within fifteen rflnutes a crowd
of jeering urchins jzntbered around the
stand and began a demonstration. This
attracted the attention of the policeman on
the beat, who sauntered leisurely to the
place. The boys ran away and the blue
coat read the announcement.
"Is it true?" he asked, "this sign?"
"Every word," replied the standkeeper.
"Fine Knglish hares, especially imported,
fifty cents each."
"But it don't say that. It says they have
been dead a week. If that's so I'm going
to take you in for viol ating the health or
dinance. I'm going 1 3 take you in anyway
for selling game without a license. You're
a nuisance at best."
And the policemat was on the point of
taking the man off to the station house
when the dry goods rr erchant arrived upon
the scene, and taking in the situation at a
glance explained that the matter was some
devilment of one of h is boys and secured
the man's release. The hares were never
sold, but there was one youngster in the
employ of the roercl ant who received an
admonition that day that be has never for

The First Almanaes.
The almanac, propeily so called in its ori
gin, is not merely a device for keeping peo
ple In mind of the projrress of the year. It
Is an attempt to show what destiny has in
store for us as indicated by the position of
the stars in any particular year. And as,
according to astrologital lore, the destinies
of men are ruled by the different aspects of
the planets, so also the human body is sub
ject to the influence of the constellations
through which the sun appears to pass in
his yearly course, A French almanac of
1610 gives a diagram of the human body
surrounded by all the t-igns of the zodiac,
and indicates the various organs and mem
bers over which thesi signs have power,
and this for a guide po lr les saignees, or to
show at what periods blood may be let with
safety. Uut the same almanac also gives
directions sensible enr ngh for the avoid
ance of the plngue, w hich would not be
found fault with by a modern fashionable
Who would keep his hody in health
And resist the ii.fe tiou of the plague.
Let him seek joy and Badness fly.
Avoid p'nrrs where infections abound.
And cherish joyous company.
A few examples exisi of almanacs of this
character before the invention of printing,
although none, it is brlieved, earlier than
the Twelfth century. But some of the
earliest specimens of printing are black
printed German sheet i.lmanncs, which are
chiefly concerned about blood letting. All

Sir Richard Owen's Care for the Tlirds.
Mr. Ernest Hart, who had an intimate
acquaintance with thf late Sir Richard
Owen, speaks of him a a an interesting so
cial personage as well as a great scientist.
Sir Richard loved a sto? y and a gentle joke,
but reproved vulgar hi mor with stern se
verity. On the day .'r. Hart introduced
his wife to Sir Richard they were walking
around the garden, lot king at the scien
tist's favorite trees.
Noticing that some w ?re netted and some
not Mrs. Hart remarked on this, and Sir
Richard answered, with that beaming smile
and sympathetic twinkle with which his
face often lighted up: ''Ah, those those I
leave for the birds. I ctfl them the salary
of the orchestra." Lonion Globe.
