If pestilence or 'I revails in a
village, an old woman of Ute as a

confines of the village at midnight and
beats a pan; Thereupon all the wom

armed with divers domestic utensils -
frying-pans, pokers, tongs, shovels,
scythes and cudgels. After shutting
the cattle in their stalls, and warning
the men not to leave their houses. a
procession is formed. The seeress
takes off her dress and pronounces a
curse upon Death. She is then
hitched to a plow, together with a
bevy of virgins and a misshapen wou_
an, if such a one can be found, and a
continuous and closed farrow is drawn
round the village three times. When
the procession starts, the image of
some saint suitable to the occasion,
that of St. Blasius, for examf e, in the
case of murrain, is borne in front of

Our souls crave a perfect good; we

law that points in that direction.
William M. Salter.
If any one speak ill of thee, consid

and if so, reform thyself, that his cen
sures may not affect thee.-Epictetus.
In every loving woman there is a
priestess of the past-a pious guard
ian of some affection, of which the
object has disappeared. -Henri Fred
eric Amiel.
Suspicions among thoughts are like
bats among birds-they ever fly to
twilight; they are to be repressed, or,
at least, well guarded, for they cloud
the mind.
Many brave young minds have
oftentimes, through hearing the
praises and famous eulogies of worthy
men, been stirred up to effect the
like commendations. -Spenser.
Look in all things for the beauty
which is their soul, and shall fill your
soul. Seek it and dwell in it, for,
rightly understood, it is a part of
your deepest life.-Henry W. Foote.
Self conceit is a weighty quality,
and will sometimes bring down .thie
scale when there is nothing else in it.
It magnifies a fault beyond proportion,
and swells every omission into an
outrage. -Jeremy Collier.
Books well chosen neither dull the
appetite nor strain the memory, but
refresh the inclinations, strengthen
en the.powers and improve under ex

as it were, antedate his life, and
makes himself contemporary with past
ages.-Jeremy Collier.
