THE TONQUIN PEARL MYTH.
A Celebrated Legend of Drops of Blood
That Turned to Pearls.
Tho celebrated Tonquin Foarl
Myth," or "Legend of the Golden
Bow," is both curious and interest
ing. Mytholcgists will tell you that
in all countries where precious stones
are found remarkable legends and
curious myths are always related by
tho natives to account for tho origin
of the gems, such as tho 'lonquin
Pearl Myth," which is as follows:
There was once a Tonquinese king
so well skilled in magic as tjbo able
to make a bow of pure liquid gold,
which he afterwards hardened and
tempered to suit his taste. The
arrows tired from this wonderful
golden bow always struck the mark
and were also certain death, even
though tho wound bo ever so slight;
this being the case it is clear that
the bow was a pledge of perpetual
victory. The kingly owner of this
strango weapon, therefore had no
difficulty in defeating tho kings which
surrounded him. taking their lands
and making tho people tributaries.
In the course of time his daughter
married the son of one of tho defeat,
ed kings, and. on the very day of tho
marriage, this crafty son-in-law pre
vailed upon his wife to procure for
him tho magic boV and to substitute
therefor a golden bow made in exact
imitation, but, of course, lackinar tho
magical powers. She did so, being
in ignorance of the virtues of tho tal
isman her father had so long carried
on his victorious raids, and the re
sult was that her parent was com
pelled to surrender to his unworthy
son-in-law. Then the demons in
formed tho deposed king of the
source of his lato misfortunes and he
forthwith seized his daughter and
prepared to cut off her head with his
While preparations were being
made tho unhappy daughter protested
her innocence, even on bended knoe.
but her tears availed nothing.
Finally, as a last'resort, she declared
to her father that every drop of her
innocent blood that was shed would
turn to pearls. Instantly the en
raged sire flashed his blade and tho
blood of his daughter fell in showers
of beautiful pearls. Since that clay
tho sandy plain upon which she was
murdered has been the richest jiearl
licit! in ail ionqum.

A late paper by a medical authority
advises again:-1 the common and "un
healthy remedy" of snufiing a solu
tion of salt and wat?r for catarrhal
troubles. In its place is recom
mended a solution of warm water and
bicarbonate of soda a teaspoonful of
soda to a cupful of water. The samo
solution is prescribed for acute sore
throat in the place of chlorate of
potassium. "Whatever solution is
used in tho nose," says the writer of
the paper, "it is a great mistake to
forcibly snuff it into the nostrils from
the palm of the hand. If it is snuffed
too forcibly it is forced into the upper
part of the nasal cavity, whero it is
very irritating, often causing head
ache and irritation of tho eyes. Tho
best and simplest way to use tho soda
Bolution is to bury the noso entirely
in the cup of fluid and then gently
Buck tho solution into the nose, at
tho same time holding the mouth
wide open." New York Post.
