The spade; neomi destined to become s most
important aid to the stadr of ancient history.
The books ol the Otvek and Roman authors long
ar-i-i yielded all the knowledce they were capable
oT lifcrdiog, and hare beooine uncertain and defi
cienl f-uides. In fact, they hardly toocu really
ancient history. That which is authentic in theiu
due r..t date farther back than about the begin
ninj of the Olympiads, in the eighth century be
fore t'hrist. At this time a whole family of great
nations bad crown up. flourished, and disappeared,
cvrpi was in the decline of her third Km pi re.
Two or three empires bad risen, one upon anoth
er's ruins, iu Mesopotamia, and fallen. The
I'fcurnicians had done their work of buildint; com
merce and planting colonies, and most of their
colonies bad passed their greatest stage. Ac
cording to the now accepted estimates, the time
of busy lite and ciril;xation belore Greece and
Rome were founded, was quite as long as that,
that has elapsed since, if no: longer. Of tbe his
tories of that time, the classical writers give lit
tle besides fables. Mses. and vague gossip.
Much of the best ancient histories is lost, leav
ing gaps which it has leen impossible to fid.
Moreover, the oid books, honest and true in the
main, are marred by blunders and contradictions,
jus; as many modern arorks are. Bat while, in
the case of the modern works, there are stand
ards abundant and readily acceptable, by which
to correct or verify them, such standards are want
ing with retereuca to the ancient authors, and
tue student has bad to judge tbem without col
lateral help. Of late, however, the spade has been
the means of bringing to light many ancient mon
uments. These are authorities whose authen
ticity cannot be disputed. Whatever they es
tablish they fix beyond a doubt, for tbey were if

Mr. Fhipps. of the firm of I'hipps d Hodge,
the Oanbury undertakers, was silling in his shop.
Saturday afternoon, ruminating gloomily upon
the tiull times, when the door opened and in
came a stranger. The visitor was a slim-faced
man. dressed in a dun colored suit of nitlier
tight-fitting clothes. He looked clear around
the room, carefally avoiding a glance at the uu
deriaker until the circuit was completed.
Then he looked curiously at bim aud said ;

" Well, that'll depend on how ye kin deal, I

a pretty heavy ofiliclien. My old woman went

rogatively over the arrays of coffins and caskets.
" Your wife is dead ? ' iuquired Mr. I'hipps.

There is n servant girl living
Howard street who wouldn't bo permitted to
change her place it $10 a week would be any in
ducement for her to slay. She makes il her
special duty to meet ail agents and beggars at
the door, and to dispose of tbom without tbe
least annoyance to the family. Shu has a rule
to meet each case, and her rules are perfection.
The door-bell never fools her. She can tell a
caller's ring from a bo .-gar's ring as certainly as
the bell is touched. When she open the door
and finds a man with a red gnatee. having a
clothes-wringer iu his hand, she doesn't wail lor
him to hem and haw and say that his clothes
wringer beats all the other wringers ever made.
She gets the start by saying : "You seem like a

The next one may be a young lady, who bold

new kind of face-powder to sell.
"You can go in," whispers the girl, "and I will
stand at the door, so as to rush in when you cull.
If tbe mistress asks you to taste anything, be
ware of poison. She may no', have her little re
volver this morning, and I guess it would be safe
for you to go in !"
"Why why ?" stammers tbe young lady.
; right in ; she may not be dangerous."
"Never mind 1 II call again 1 in in a hurry."
The next is one of thoso old chaps who go
about with tears in their eyes, willing to work if
woik can be bad, bul never finding any work
their health will permit them to do. "Madam,'
he says as ho opens ibe door, ' for heavons sake
let me work at something long enough to earn a
elice of bread."
She motions for him to go around to the side
door, and is there to let bim in. She hands him
an a: weighing seven pounds, with a straight han
dle, points to three or four big knots which have
become almost petrified, and softly savs : ' You
look hungry, and as soon you split those up 1 II
give you tbe best meal you've had in a month."
She goes in, and he spits on his hands, looks at
that old ax. and then folds his lilt le tool and slips

Then the little girl who canvasses for the or

smile, and the hired girl savs : "You poor little

vou some money. If you will gel the Mayor to

The little girl thoughtfully pursues her way.

iiittslrated bv it. The boried cities of Pa !!
and Moab are to be disinterred for other illostra- I
lions. At Kpiieias, Jar. Wkal has oucovered one
of the most magai&ceol buildings of the Greek
architects. Tbe subsoil of modem Rome is ex
plored for toe buildinsrs. statues, and precious
goods of tbe ancient people. Tbe soil has been,
or wiil lie, examined at Athene and primitive Ar
ras and Myceta? and other places in Greece,
wherever it is practicable. Tbe most important
excavation in Greece has jast been begon on tbe
pain of Oiytnpia. the spot where ths Olympic
games were celebrated. It was the great na
tional rally i ne spot of Greece. All the States
bad a coaimon interest in iu Tbey built grand
temples there, and broogbt their most precious
trestsares and best works of art as votive offerings
and to adorn it, so that, according to the histo
rian Dr. Carlias. an accamalatijrj of treasures
was fot.od there, the like of which never existed
anywhere else. If they escaped tbe ravages of
tbebarbarans.il is likely tbey are there still.
Tbe chances are io favor of their having escaped,
as the sitaatioa and condition of the place are
sach as mast have insured their being speedily
covered op and preserved. The work is con
ducted with scientific care and thoroughness, un
der a special agreement with the Greek Govern
ment. The 6rt report records the discovery of
tbe great Temple of Zeas. and is moro favorable
than tbe projectors of tbe enterprise bad reason
There is erjoogh of this dierrioj io prospect to
employ several generations of aotiqaaries. The
amoant of promising work to be done in Meso
potamia is simply stupendoas. The plan is cov
ered with monods. each indicating an ancient
city. I hree of tbe four oldest cities Darned in
the Bible have been identified but not dog ibto.
Syria i. fall of tbe mounds of ancient cities, asset
of which are wholly noknown. So few of the
oldest monameots of Egypt have been discov
ered that it is doubted if tbey oo exist. But
Mr. Marriette has found enough at Memphis to
give bim encouragement. Items are to be foaod
all over Asia aud the neighboring islands, a-d
oar ancient American cities may some day be
made to reveal important secrets.
Tbe recovered inscriptions have restored some
of the languages ol extreme antiquity. Aoy ooe
who has observed tbe part which tbe study of
Ungaaxes plays in tbe investigation of tbe origin
and relations of the races ol men. may judge that
uch discoveries will contribute directly aad ma
terially to whatever soloiion of the problem is
reached. The traditions and mythologies re
covered with tbe languages will be equally im
porlanl in tbe study of primeval times.
.Not lor an article like that, sir. 1 can as

bought for a cent less than Sl'"2 one year ago."
It may be cheap, as you say." roaiioated the
bereaved ; " yet 518 is a good big pile of money.
I want something nice, of coarse, but I don't
want to jump in so mighty heavy as to make peo-
pie think I never had a fuoeral before. . Vou gel

" Oh. yes, perfectly. Ton want an article that
! will look respectable and tn keeping with your
circumstances, bat yet you do not wish to be loo

By jinks, I guess you've got it square on tbe

continued, tapping his sides.
' Perfectly so ; we use tbe very best kinds of
I wood." explained Mr. i'hipps.
"Just see here a inmate," exclaimed the
stranger, suddenly and impressively drawing jth"
undertaker to one side. " Vou say that coffin
; is sound as a not. an' you want eighteeo dollars
for it? Xow, I want you to understand there
ain't anything small about me. an' that I've got

from. But Wiuter is coming on, you know, an'
we owe a tittle to tbe living as well. That's a

- understanding what grief is. if yoa ain't got a box

But let this stranger see. if he will, iu yoa looks,
in your actions, in your accents and behavior,
your heart and earnestness, what he cannot buy
at any price at any village or city, and which he
may well travel 50 miles and dine sparely and

tbe board he spread, and the bed dressed for the
traveler, but lei not tbe emphasis of hospitality

fered in the antiquarian stores which can bring
more than half the price asked for it. The age
has nothing io common with tbe admirers of tbe
severely dignified representations of scenes in
Shakespeare's olays, or those designs intended to
illustrate the classical works of antiquity. With
the invention ot tbe photograph. engravings ex
cept those of the highest rank fell into disuse ;
sod the varied applications of the beliotype pro
cess, by which tbe moat costly works are exactly
reprodoced. has made it possible for every one to
have a complete tn gallery of tbe great works ot
tbe old masters. The firm of James B. Osgood

beliotype reproductions of tamoo. worts, have
done moch to promote art culture sod edocauco.

there is so honest love for true art and a knowl

works" The Seasons," and other characteristic
paintings by Scbreyer. are to be seen at the store,

Captain Casey, of tbe Portsmouth, is mild bat
firm, and impresses tbe boys al once that be is i
the right ataa in the right place. He is so roach '
pleased with his pupils tbst be says he would j
ratber sail hi ahip with screw of the boys
