A New Version of an OIt Story.
Every one lias lie.-ml that old and popu
larly accepted story of Marie Antoinette

told :;s an illustration of the heart lessuess
and carelessness- of royalty concerning the

Williamsyivesthecorrect version. Hesays:
"We are told that when Marie Antoinette
was informed of a famine in the neighbor
hood of the Tyrol and of the starving of
some of the peasants there, she replied, I
would rather eat piecrust than f-tarve.
Some of the story tellers, by the way, have
it pastry, ot h"rscaku. Thereupon the court
iers singled at t he ignorance of the pam
pered princess, who could supjiose that
5tap'in3r Jposimt had such an alternative
food as ie cr.'.st.
"The iwioraiice, however, was nil on the
side of the courtiers mid those who repeat
the story in its ordinary form. The prin
cess was the only person in the court who
really umlerst ood the habits of the peasants
of t he particular districts in question. They
cook their meat, chiefly young veal, by roll
ing it in a kind of dough made of sawdust,
mixed with coarse: flour to hold it together,
then placing this in an oven or wood em
bers until the dough is hardened to a tough
crust and the meat is roasted throughout
to the proper point of cooking. Marie An
toinette said she would rather eat pie cm -it
than starve, knowing that those meat j ie
crusts are ifiveii to the pigs, and they are
nourished by them and digest them in spite
of the wood sawdust."
In an Age of Clubs.
We have literary clubs, social clubs, read
ing clubs, artists' clubs and clubs of clubs.
I want to put in a very earnest and serious
plea for a nature's club.
Why should not 20 or 50 agreeable people
join together for the purpose of learning to
love nnd enjoy nature? For the purpose of
making long tramps or taking long rides
through wild dark forests or noble moun
tains, or open, pleasant fields? I do not
mean botany clubs heaven forbid! For
me the thought of dissecting arose or a
leaf and deliberately explaining all those
delicate, Jieautiful parts is repugnant.
But it is the truth that few know how to
enjoy what God meant that we should en
joy the woods, the fields, the liquid notes
of the meadow lark, the primrose light in
the sky at dawn, the wild rockets and this
tle downs blowing along the lanes, the soi.g
the brook sings under the browning reeds,
the message of the winds, the exquisite low
murmur of the sea or its terrible, passion
We do not pause to marvel at the beauty
of a violet with a dewdrop pearled in its
heart, but we linger long and covetously
over those fashioned by the jeweler's art,
or we go into ecstasies of admiration and
wonder if we find them on a bit of canvas!
We go miles and spare not expense to look
on some famous painting of a sunset which
has set the whole world to talking, and lol
the same sunset has swung nightly on our
horizon for years, and we never knew it, be
cause we did not have it in us to see what
the artist saw. Peterson's Magazine,
