volumes, will remetuuec the famous
stock-jobbing mania which raged in
Paris under thi. inspiration of the
Scotch projector and financier, John
Law. During the mania the great
scene of operations was the Rue
Quinquempoix. The business was by
law confined to that spot, whither
multitudes of mei and women of all

Since Law's day Paris has been

the one in which to-day the most ex

he does odd jobs during the day for
the shopkeeper, while in the evening
he assists iu getting home any of the
sons of Bacchus who may have drunk

deaf to all the commands and entrea

keep him out of broils, guard his per

necessary, and when he cannot be led
home, carry hi.n ou his back or wheel
him on a barrow. The earnings of
these helpers of frail humanity are
ridiculously paltry, seldom exceeding

One of the out-of-the-way modes of
getting a living in London is that prac
ticed by the wine-tasters of the Lon
don docks. These persons, who are
snpposed io have palates of exquisite
delicacy, with much knowledge of
rwines, hang about the docks, where
they are hired by both. dealer and
buyers to accompany them to the
vaults and give their opinions of the
various wines submitted to them for
examination. Though they carefully
avoid swallowing the wine they taste,
yet their calling slowly saps their
heith, and they become at an early
age physical wrecks. The sensations
which they experience in sampling the
wines are of the most delicate and
subtle nature: it was one of these men
who detected the flavor of iron in a
pipe of wine into which a shingle nail
