It is written in th 3 Psalms: "God
is my King of old, working salvation
in the midst of the e:u-ih."
This can only rcfor to the scenes
of the Passion and of the holy sepul
chre; the midst or raid spot of the
earth must, therefore, be sought in
that vicinity. The belief that the
center of the earth is at Jerusalem is
very ancient, for it is alluded to by
St. Ephrem in his reftrence to Noah's
prayer over the bone of Atlam. St.
Ephrem says: "And Noah
buried Adam's body n the middle of
the earth.'" A certain round stone
in the temple of Delphi i also spoken
of by tho ancient w -iters as being
the navel or center o the earth."
Orastes take- iviu-c there when
pursued by Euuicnirlc Pindar al60
makes mention of tin cr.act location
of the center of the world; and Pen
sanius, like Herr Schick, also had
the pleasure of behi-lding the only
genuine central hub of our planet,
lie, however, locates it at Delphi,
instead of at Jerusalem. ' It is made,"
he says, "of white stoi.e. smooth and
polished, and is no doubt tho middle
point of all the world."

"Yes," replied the son. "You

"I know," interrupted the old man;
"you've said that be-fore. Now I
want to give you some advice. First
marry and then take up art."
"But, father," faltered the youth,
"That's all very well," returned
the elder, "but my advice is good."
Why?" inquired ths son.
Why?" echoed the father.
"Because if you sho ild go forth as
an artist and the results come to tho
ears of her father I don't think that
you would stand any e lance of ever
winning her, my son."

Aii amusing anecdot3 is once more
current in Europe illustrating the
readiness, cauticity, and cleverness
of retort of Leo XIII. It appears
that when tho holy father was nuncio
at Brus-els, previous to his becom
ing a cardinal, he was accosted one
evening after dinner at the royal
palace by a certain marquis, who,
with a view to provok ng a laugh at
the expense, of tho pi-elate, handed
him a snuff box on the lid of which
there was a nude and indecent figure
of Venus. Tho nuncic took it and
carefully examined it without be
traying the slightest e nbarrussmont
or appearing to notice he smothered
merriment of the marquis and his
friends. Thereupon he handed it
back to the marquis with a courtly
bow and the suave re nark: "It is
charming, my dear marquis; a por
trait of the marquise, I suppose?"

Here there is a 1 ng pause, a glance
toward the senior senator from Ohio in
a depreciating sort of way, as though
they wanted to avoid bruising any one's
feeling, and then:

great stress upon the "so called."
