An American Fable.
THE BEAR, THE BEES AXD THE WOODMAK.
On a OTtain occasion, as Bruin was tak
ing a wa .k in the forest, he elevated his left
eye just in time to see a number of bees
passing into a hole in a tree about 30 feet
above thi; ground. His serene countenance
was instantly beautified by a grin of de
light, and he sat up and pulled his ear and
wijispend to himself: "Egad I old boy, but
luck hai come your way this time! You
didn't make much fooling with that Porcu
pine yesterday, but here is sometnlng with
out qui! Is on it, and all you've got to do is to
help yourself. I think we'll climb up there
and fill up on honey for a change. There
may be softer snap than this In Sycamore
county, but if so I don't know where it is!"
For convenience sake and to help along
the Bet.r, this Fable is subdivided. He
gave h:tnself a shake o limber up his
joints, Fuarpened his claws oh ft grindstone
which tame careless farmer had left lying
around loose, and as he started up the tree
he chuckled to himself:
"I've heard the word 'cinch' a good many
times, but I've just got on to its meaning.
Mighty sharp in me to lift my eyes just as
I did. Jlobody ever finds a good thing by
looking down. 1 Boost 'er up, old man,
there's glorious times ahead!"
You weren't there, of course, but you
ought to have been. It was a circus and
menagirie combined, with everybody
passed in free. When Bruin reached the
hole, hr dropped a paw into it to feel aroVhd
for the bill of fare. He found it. Thelites
came o it after it to see what w&s wanted
in their line, and the business of thg meet
ing wait transacted with promptness and
dispatch. Bruin at first welgomed his as
sailant i with a sarcastic grin, but it wasn't
10 seconds before he was asking who
stablied him with that pitchfork.
A pe -iod of half an hour is supposed to
have elapsed. A Woodman who was pass
ing through the forest came upon a Bear
who vas rolling over and over, on the
gtounii and uttering the most dismal com
plaint. Bruin had one eye closed, and
was covered from head to heels with lumps
and ki obs and knots.
"Wl at cheer!" gayly cried the Woodman
as he c rew nearer.
"Beis!" moaned the Bear.
"Bu j Nature gave you a coat of fur to
protect you from the stings of Bees."
"So she did," answered the Bear, "but
Bhe also made mo fool enough to want
honey just the same when I was shedding
my co-it and every sting would lift me a
foot h gh!"

It is more than remarkable that a cus
tom which arose shortly after the death,
some 1,200 years ago, of a man whose
name was for centuries identified with
all that was hostile to Christian domina
tion and opinion should within the last
few years have had an important and
favorable influence on the earnings of
certain British lines of steamers.
No race has been more enthusiastic in
the way of pilgrimage to the holy city
of Arabia than that inhabiting the Malay
peninsula and archipelago. Although
their conversion to Islamism dates back
only some 500 years, if indeed quite, so
long (the records of the event being de
cidedly vagno and untrustworthy), the
duty of performing tho "Haj" is recog
nized by all right minded Malays as im
perative. The peninsula itself probably
furnishes a far fewer number of pilgrims
than the large islands of tho archipelago
forming the magnificent territory knowr.
as Netherlands Indies. Java and Celebes.
Boj an and Bngis, to say nothing of in
numerable less known places, now send
forth multitudes yearly to visit the sa
cred fane. It would not at first sight,
seem that the journey made principally
in well appointed steamers involved any
But the usual conditions of the "pil
grim traffic" are somewhat different
from those of ordinary passenger vessels.
The Malay pilgrim, whose ticket to and
from Mecca is provided by a passage
broker, has to find his own provisions
while on board. In nil cases he has to
pay smartly for conveyance from Jeddah
to Mecca overland, unless he elects to do
the journey on foot, but in any event he
has to provide tho necessary commis
sariat. The steamers as a rule are over
crowded for ordinary comfort, although
permitted by regulation to carry the 500
or more pilgrims who embark. Should,
as sometimes happens, an epidemic
break out during the voyage, the death
rate becomes tragical. The worst hard
ships, however, commence on landing at
the evil smelling and by no means
healthy port of Jeddah.
Few of the pilgrims provido them
selves with adequate necessaries to
tramp the greater portion of the 100
miles which separate the city of Mecca
from its nearest port. Yet worse is their
condition on returning. The price of
food is exorbitant, and thousands perish
annually of exhaustion and insufficient
nourishment and this despite the best
efforts of the British and other consuls
at Jeddah, who issue all needful warn
ings to the pilgrims. Quarantine, again,
tells heavily against the would be Haji.
A few extra days' detention exhausts his
small stock of provisions, and he falls a
ready victim to disease. The result is
that a large proportion of those who
visit Mecca never return to their own
country. The trade, however, is profit
able to steamer owners, much as it is
disliked by captains and officers. As for
Europeans unfortunate enough to bo
passengers in a pilgrim bhip, they are
not to be envied. Pall Mall Gazette.

Gait is an important part of physical
expression. By his gait a man tells us
whether lie is fresh or tired, strong or
feeble, in good health or in bad. To some
extent also gait denotes occupation. The
upright and somewhat rigid walk of the
soldier differs largely from the rather
rolling gait of the sailor, and different
from both of these is the slow, jolting
gait of the country laborer, which, how
ever, is partly accounted for by his clum
sy and heavy lioots. In the peculiarities
of gait, again, an attentive eye discovers
many moral qualities. Slow steps.wheth
er long or short, suggest a gentle or reflect -ive
state of mind as the case may be.
while on the contrary quick steps seem
to speak of agitation and energy.
Reflection is revealed in frequent
pauses, and walking to and fro, back
ward and forward, the direction of the
steps wavering and following every
changing impulse of the mind, inevitably
betrays uncertainty, hesitation and in
decision. It might le asking too curious
a knowledge to distinguish by their re
spective gaits the miser, the spendthrift
and the philanthropist, but the proud
man is almost always known by his step,"
the vain man to some extent and the ob
stinate man not a little. Leisure Hour.
Llviug on a Beggarly 10.OO0.
No one who has not actually mixed
with New- York dandies knows how
much they spend. A social philosopher
has lately reckoned that a young man
about tewn, who takes his part in the
good things which are going, cannot
dress under $2,500 a year. His tailor's
bill will eat half of this, his shirts and
"gentlemen's furnishings" a quarter, his
boots not less than $225. It will cost over
$500 to outfit him for yachting, tennis
and ik)Jo. Then add to this his bill for
horses, his club bill, his florist's bill, his
restaurant bill, his lodging bill and the
nameless sundries which constitute one
half of the outlay of a young man about
town, and it will be Been that a man may
have $10,000 a year and yet be familiar
with the face of duns.
One of the oldest and wisest clubmen
of the day recently, after an hour's study
of tho necessaries of life for a man of
fashion, declared that he would advise
no one to attempt the life with less than
$25,000 a year. Gor. San Francisco Ar

In Holland a woman is a secondary
consideration and a poor consideration
at that. No Dutch gentleman when
walking on the sidewalk will move oat
of his way for a lady. The latter turns
out invariably, however muddy or dan
gerous the street. Ladies very rarely
make any requests of the lords of crea
tion. An American woman asked a Hol
land gpentleman at a party to bring her a
certain book from a table. The bewild
ered stare with which he favored her
convinced her that she had committed a
conventional offense. He brought the
book.'but quietly informed her that a
Hollander would never have asked such
a favor. F. H. Stauffer in Kate Field's

frightful rapidity, and from indolence it
is but a short step to indifference, dissi

vivial associations and the gay company
of a colony mado of kindred spirits as
bright and magnetic as himself too often
put his ambitions to sleep, and he drifts
on and on until he becomes a spendthrift
and a lounger, if nothing worse. At the
end of two or three years he returns to
America, his money spent, his health
frequently shattered and himself so thor

If Mr. Henry Labouchere has a habit
of getting into trouble, he has also a hap
py knack of getting out of it. For in
stance, the other day, after he had print
ed an important piece of news about the
proper way to cook crawfish and a hu
mane reader of Truth expostulated with
him about his advice to the cook to cut
the live fish in halves, ho retorted mer
rily by expressing the opinion that it is
ridiculous sentiment to treat creatures
of low or rudimentary organizations as
if they had the same susceptibility to
pain as a human being, and settled the
question finally by telling an anecdote
about an angling friend of his who once
"caught a perch foul."
The hook pierced the fish's eye. My friend
felt that lie had not caught the perch accord
ing to the rules of the same, so, to compensate
him for losing his eye. he put him back into the
water. He then baited his hook with the eye
and went to work again. Within three min
utes he canpht that same perch again with his
This is a capital fish story. We have

Tho ancient girdl-j was used for other
material or uclual purposes besides that
of a receptacle for money. At it were
hung the thousand and one odds and
ends needed and utilized in every day
affairs The scrivener had his inkhom
and pen attached to it, the scholar his
book or "books, the monk his crucifix and
rosary, the innkeeper his tallies, and ev
ery body his knife. So tnanyand so va
rious were the articles attached to it
that the flippant began to poke fun. In
an old play there is mention of a mer
chant who had hanging athis girdle a
pouch, a spectacle case, a "punniard," a
pen and inkhom and "a handkercher,
with many other trinkets besides, which
a merry companion seeing said it was
like a haberdasher's shop of small wares."
In another early play a lady says to her
milid: "Give me my girdle and see that
all the furniture bo at it. Look that
cizars, pincers, the penknife, the knife
to close letters with, the bodkin, the ear
picker and the scale be in the case."
Cost of the Ilorclen Case.
The cost to the county of the trial of
Lizzie Borden in Fall River, Mass., is
now estimated at $14,000. What Miss
Borden's counsel's fees were may only
be inferred, but the pecuniary rewards
of successful practitioners in New Eng
land are as a rule outside of Boston at
least not more than one-third of what
they are in the big cities. For defending
Lizzie Borden in a New York court and
securing her acquittal her leading coun
sel would not have asked less than $25,
000. The items of the bill of costs to the
county include f500 to Assistant Dis;
