TRYING THEIR LUCK.
A Carlooa Book, I all of Jionaense, Po
ewed by the Neapolitans.
It will be reme:nb?red that in 15S3
there was a pre at larthquake in Ischia,
an island in the b iyof Naples. Thou
sands of people w ere killed and hurt,
some buried alive for days. Well, the
Neapolitans wen- very generous in
sending aid to Isc lia. But they were
also extremely brisk in referring' to a
litre book of numbers with which
they are a great ieal more intimate
tlran w ith any thicg else in the shape
This little book is a curious, non
sensical piece of work a string- of
common and abstract nouns, adjec
tives, etc, with l umber attached to
them, such word, for example, as
"king." "queen, -bread, war,"
"famine," husband." "joy," "cat."
"dog," etc. It is the lottery mongers'
When, therefor.-, the calamitv of
Ischia was heard of, the Neapolitans
immediately turr ed up the word
"earthquake" in the precious little
book. This was the foundation num
ber of the series c f three, which con
stitutes a "terno. " To complete the
series some chose )ne word, some an
other, more or less apposite to the oc
casion such as th ; day of the week
and the day of the month, or the num
ber corresponding to "death' and
"island." The od 1 thing- was that
when Saturday arrived a "terno" came
out that actually I roujht a frood deal

A FEARFUL THREAT.
ft Bronght a Crew of Boltltroai Sea
men to Their Senses.
In the British navy sailors are often
in the same ship for three or four, or
even more years. During this time
their craft is their home, and they
speak of it as such, and with an affec
tion as if it were e living thing. By
means of the ship the men mar be
wonrlerfnliy influenced. The late Cap
tain Hall was in command of a re
markably fine frigite on the South
American station, of which he and his
crew- were justly p -oud.
The handsome bt st on her beautiful
fig-urehead was brightly gilt, and
great care was tak?nof it The har
n;ony which had f enerally prevailed
on board was si mehow disturbed.
IJui instead of resorting to corporeal
punishment, the captain summoned
the men aft, and in simple, manly
speech, pointed out the impropriety of
their conduct, and concluded thus:
"So now, my lad-,, if this be not put
an end to, and hearty goodwill re
stored, I'll blackea your figurehead
and put the ship in mourning."
Had a bombshell fallen at their feet
the men could not have been more as
tonished. To have their figurehead
blackened! No, anything rather than
that, and in this vay order and har
mony were restored.
