Hi! didn't I tell you so! You can't get your finger-nail in the crack. The wood they^use is niostly a kind of red cedar, stnnghter, whiter and coarser-grained than ours not so red, and without the odor of American oedar. Another kind of wood is as fine as box-wood, but harder, and has a mental grain. The. of a day mixture of: their' own. Each -tile weighs about as much as one of our brides. These tiles are rf peculiar ocm struction—CQnvolnted on one side, the other side slightly convoluted, lapping under and into the convolution of ite neighbor, so that the tiles axe jointed side wise by the device of their own con struction.

Leo XHt^ex-King of Armenia, has just died in a state of wretched poverty in hospital at Ifilan. This of his earthly possessions and from his kingdom by the Czar of Buasia, who was, at first, charitable enough to payhimasniallpeDBkm. For some time paet, however, the pension was cut off, the Czar having reached the conduaion that it was beet to let Ids Majesty shift for mmwwif in tiie struggle of existence. Of course,'the only shifting the poor, unacclimated outcast could dp was to pawn all the little trinkets of past royalty remaining to him, and this lie did in be half of bread. Finally, he had nothing more to pawn, and died, leaving a widow tod several very interesting young Ar menian ex-anbwets. A ooDaetion has been taken up far them by the hospital authorities Yet this poor sovereign was of very high and noble lineage, having numbered-among his ancestors no less •than tweaty-five kings who Wore erowns five were emperors of the East, three kings of Jeruntai^ and seventeen kings ofiCyprufc .1 «••'.. r-- On Contract A long, slim colcffed man rested on his snow-shovd in front of a honae on Mi ami avenue and mused: "James, you is a fool!
