"Lucky IMna" the Fiul.
"Lucky pins" are the favorite little
gifts of the hour, and several pjiecial pat
terns are used to simplify good fortune to
the wearer. The mysterious virtue of
the horseshoe has Ion j been recognized,
and of late years the mistletoe sprig La9
been considered equal y fortuitous, while,
added to the merry thought, it acquires
new virtues. This, with the "Carnpa
nello Margherita," wl ich is the facsim
ile of an ancient gold liell found during
the present excavati' ns near Rome arid
presented to the que--n of Italy, are the
popular mascots of t ie day. The sides
of the latter bear tie inscription, "Toi

translation: 'I (little bell) was made

grain of dust was visible on the paper on

bell impatiently for his servant to re

many medals aud decorations that they
could no longer be accommodated on his
breast. At a grand musical reunion at

comrade, "See how many decorations
Spontini has, while Mozart has not one."
Spontini, who overheard it, replied
quickly, "Mozart, iuy dear friend, docs
