HMAM, KING OF TYRE.
The Phoenietan Monnreh and is t
fort to hsmitaite the Deity.
Hiram, the Phocenician monarch,
strOve to imitate God by eorecting four
mighty pillarn ulponl which he caused
seven heavens-apartmetsto be built.
The first was constructed of glass, 50C
by -500 yards, storing therein mock il
ntges of the sun, moon and stars. The
Recond compartnment of iron, 1,000 hy
1,000 yards, was tho receptacle of pro
clous stones, causilng a terrifle noisc
resembling thunder when they crashed
against each other id th ei caisiement of
the inclosure. The third chamber was
of lead, 1,500 by 1,500 yards. The
fourth was of tin, 2,000 by 2,000 yards.
The fifth was of copper, 2, 'o by 2,500
yards. The sixth was of s Iver, 3,000
by 3,000 yards. The seventith was of
gold, 3,50) by1 3,500 yards, containing
precious stones4, pearls wi a magniil
cent throne. A channel of water sep
arated the apartments.
Iliram, imita tinlg the royal i plendor
of the court oi' Klig Solomon, sur
rounded himself by the grandest con
ccivahlo .dispiay of niagiifleence. In
the seventh apartment was stationed a
golden bed, the coriers of which were
set in~ pearls without value in all the
world, sparlding forth heanttiful flashes
resembling lightning, which spread
wonder aind terror amiong his subjects.
Tli prophet Ezekiel was ordered to
appear before Hiram, who, at a loss
as to how to reach the seven heavens
wherein the monarch presided, was
trausl)ortel into his castle by the locks
of his hair. Upon, perceiving the d.
viino messenger Iliram trembled. "Who
art thou?" thundered th" Indignant har
bingor of futtuyc, ovniets. "Why dost
thou ikoast? Ai-t thou not born of .wo
man's womb?"
"I am," replied Hliram, "but I livc
forever. Like God dwelling over wia
ters, dwell I. Like him reigning ovel
seven heavens, I rule in soven apart
ments. As God is surrounded by light
Iing and thunder, so am I. God has
stars in heaven; so have I. Many sov
ereigns have succumbed to mortality
and I still exist. Twenty-one kings o
the house of Isrgel and David, twent3
prophets and ten high priests have do
parted this earth, but I outlive then
all."
- "Why dost thou boast?" again do.
mandled Ezekiel.
"Because thou didst supply thc
cedars for Solomon's temple? ThU
Puts me in mind of a subject who pro
parod a splendid garment for his sov
ereign, and as often as the servani
gazed at the glorious pieco of work ht
boastingly remarked, '"This is m3
manufacture,' until the king, observ.
Ing his vanity, tore it off in disgust
Such will be thy lot. The temph

"One of the grossest milsconceptiom
from which Scotlantd suffers," says L
writer, "is that her national drink 1!
and always has bean whisky. But thii
is just as untrue, neither more nor less
- as that the ujutional garb of Scotlamn
is th'e kilt. Whisky, like the kilt, is i
purely Celtic or highland producit, am
up to the middle of the eighteenth con
tury it was just as unfamiliar in thi
lowlands as the clan tartans. It was
oniy after tihe '45 that the highlanders
began to settle in the lowlands anm
bring their whisky with them, but be
fore that the natjonal drink of thx
lowlandmers had1( been ale. Tlamn-o'

Frable teaches that tihe fates wer<

another a distaff and the third a pal
of shears. Trhey spun the thread o
human life, then cut it off, and men'
destiny was either hnpp~y or iunhnpp:
according to the texture of the woc
employed by these inexorable deitiem

fates? It is we who, in some degret

THE REAL VALUE.
Htow All J41terature In Contained In a
Few Great Dooka.
Young people must every now and
then hear it said or see it written that
till the real value in literaturn can be
put upon a small Shelf-that 11i to say,
the really important part of all that is
written 1. conitined Iln a very few
gro: books, all the rest4 being either
untimitiportait or dii'erent ways of say
lng the mtte things that have ben
sn!d before. The statement, of course,
is not true if ft be taken literally.
There are certainly many hundreds,
perhaps thousands, of books that con
tain original thoughts or experieneph
that are truly valuable; but,. generally
spealcing, the best part (f all that has
x-en written is to be found ti a fow
volumes. To understand how this is
- ossible we must remember that teur.
ly nil rules are the sino as other and
simpler rules. In arithmetic, for e*
111110, the whole science consists of
only four simple ways of treating num
he{rs. We can add, subtract, multiply
and divide, and that is all we (ill do
to numbers. The rest of the book la
only the working but of these four
rule,; thus all of the arithmetic could
easily be put into a little page that
one could carry in the vest pocket.
All behavior, all right living, is also
set forth in a few simple laws. These
illustrations will show what is meant
by saying that all literature is coutain
ed in a few great books. The Biblo
and the works of a few famous poets
and essayists contain all human wis
dom, and these are within the reach of
every purse.-St. Nicholas.
Ancient Tricks.
The arts of juggling were, as has
been proved by learned writers. of
high antiquity. The Ilirpini, who lived
near Rome, jumped through burning
coals; women In early times were ic
etmtomed to walk over burning coals in
Cappadocia, and the exhibition of balls
and cups is often' mentioned in the
works of the anclents. It was as far back
as the third century that one Fernus, or
Firmius, who endeavored to nake him
self emperor in Egypt, suffered a tmilth
to forge Iron on an anvil phiced on lis
breast, and'rope dancers with balanc
Ing poles are mentioned by Petronius
and others, while the various feats of
horsemanship exhibited in our eirc:uses
passed, in the thirteenth cettury, from
Egypt to the Iyzantine court and
thence over all Europe.

ing Star.
A small body as largo as a paving
stone or not as large as a marble Is
moving round the sun. Just as a
mighty pjlalet re'volves in nll ollipse., 1;o
this smiall object will move round and
round in an ellipse, with the sun in the
focus. Thore are at the pre;ent mo
ment inconceivable rgyrIads of such
meteors moving In thuis manner. They
are too small and too distant for our
teleseopes, and we can never see them
except under extraordinary eircum
sitances.I
At the time we see the meteor it
traverses a distance of more than
twenty miles a second. Such a velocity
is almost impossiblo near the earth's
su'face. Tile resistanco of the a r would
prevent it. Aloft in the emp ness of
space there is no air to resist it.
In the course of its wianderinmgs the
body may comei near the earth and
'withim a few hundred miles of Its muir
face, of course, begins to encounter the
upper surface of the atmosphere with
which the earth is inelosed. To a body
Imovilg with the appalling velocity of
a1 Imlete0or, it, plun1igei into the atmosphere
is usually fatal. Even though the up
per layers of air are excessively at
tenuated, yet they suddenly check the
velocity, almost as a rille bullet would
be checked when filred into water. As
a meteor rushes through the atmos
phere the friction of the air warnis its
surface; gradually It becomes red hot,
then white hot and is finally driven off
into the vapor with a brilliant light,
while we on the earth, one or two hun
dred miles below, exclain:
"Oh, lookI There is a shooting star."
A FISH HOOK.
The One You Should Huy nnd the
Test You Should Try.
The most common flaw In the temper
of the book. Some - hooks are brittle
and break easily. There are other
books still that bend, and bend so easi
ly that they "straighton" on every big
fish, and yet other hooks that bend, but
bend so hard that a big fish never
flexes them, and they only straighten
and come away when the full tenslon
of the line is laid upon them if caught
on a tough snag or troe bough. These
last are the hooks to buy-if you can
find them-and the hard breaking
books classifies next in merit. Tests by
the eye are quite unieless, as so many
books carry exactly tho sume tints la
blue or black. Test the hook instead
by the hand, catehliug the polut in a
firm bit of wood and trying It out -both
by the hiard, firm pull and by the jerk.
Watch particulharly in this trial for
I weakness at the foot of the barb, where
I the wire is apt to be attenuated over
much and the whole polult give way
on a strong fish. empevbilly if hooked in
I bone or very hard gristle. What vasty
- depths of angling profanity, in spirit
I if not iI word, have been stirred in
r boat and on bank when tle ploinitless
i hook comes away from the hard played
r fish must be left to nemory.-Outing
