to be attended Vy a spiritus familiaris
and not a few were suspected of being
In direct league with the devil. Proba
bly the oldest legend of which the
Faust legend Is a continuous thread is
r that of Simon Magus, mentioned In the
history of the apostles.
According to Justin, he was a native
of Gitton, a village in Samaria. He
was, no doubt, a rban of great intellec
tual powers. He was the father of the
school of the Gnostics. It is also rM
ported of him that he could make him
self invisible, that he could pass
through flames unharmed, could trans
pose matter, make gold and exorcise
demons-In fact, he laid claim to all
these powers, and his name lived in the
mouths of the people as a sort of demi
urge through-many centuries until some
other miracle working personality took
his place at the popular fireside. Un.
usual accomplishments, great erudi
tion, were attributed to the supernatu
ral influence and the general disposi
tion to superstitious assumption was
strengthened on the one hand by dog
matic affirmation on the part of the
church of the existence of a personal
Satan, with his numerous household,
and, on the other hand, by incorporat
ing the magic arts among the practical
sciences, of which astrology and al
chemy occupied no mean part.
THE ODD LITTLE GECKO.,
A Queer Amnal'That Liveu In Afries
and Southern Europe.
The gecko is an odd little creature.
His name is seldom heard, and his
form is seldom seen, for he lives in
Africa 'and the southern countries of
This little gecko han me many strange
ways and there is something so un
canny in his appearance that the peo
ple of the countries where he lives are
rather afraid of him, believing his bite
to be poisonous, although this is de
nied by naturalists.
He Is a little creature, with a broad,
flat head, like a snake, and a long
body, with a narrow tail, with odd
shaped bits of skin arranged like scal
lops along the sides of it. He has
short legs and queer, catlike claws,
which enable him to easily climb the
old walls and rocks upon which he
lives, catching the Insects of various
sorts which make his dinner.
He Is a nocturnal animal, walking
abroad at night and sleeping in the
daytime. He moves with sudden
Auo'z aU without any noise what

I from the queer noise he makes, which
is something like the noise you would
make to start a horse with. The male
gecko is of a gray color, so near the
shade of the old walls and rocks
I among which he makes his home that
he can barely be seen.
The education of their children is a
matter of no small interest to the af
fectionate Chinese mothers. They
watch the little one from the day he is
born, to note superstitious signs. Let
him cry lustiiy, and he will live long,
say the old grannies. If he teeth. or
walks too soon he will grow up un
lovable in disposition. At first the lit
tle Chinese are not very attractive ob
jects, presenting rather a scaly appear
ance, due to the custom of not wash
ing them lest they catch cold. A month
after his birth the boy's head is shaved.
A great feast is prepar'ed and celebrat
jed, the child now receiving his "milk
name." When he enters school his
-name is changed, as it is once more
when he receives his degree-Pilgrim.
