CURIOUS MYTHS OF THE MIDDLE AGES. The llTlmln-rtod-Illelh 1st Prison. Mr. 8. Burinf? Gould, an English writer, has ollt-cted In a volume a number of tbe curious myths of th middle ages, wauy of which onoo lipid place In trrave uiBtones, which Is pub iiRhrd by Robert A Brothers, Boston. Here, l9f ltwc, Wv "omc purtlQulwa of tlie history TH WANDERING JBW In the chronicles of the Abbey of St. Albans, copied and continued by Matthew Pans, there Is the following entry, the hrst extant notice of the "errant Jew," under trie year 1228 A. u.i " Eodem tempore floruit taina loiiRejlatcque dis pesra de Josepho Cartaphila, qucm Anaolas fcaptizitvit, et qui vldit Christum cruclflTum, ' and the same curonlc.ler records at lenetn tne visit to the abbey of an Armenian arebb shop, who. by his Interpreter, communicated to tuo monks minute particulars resperHn this wan aering Jew, derived from personal knowledge: rn,d WJr & Wa'.,SS Sack on him wild "ncSHlH'l' murn. An i T:T.w"ihw,;.5w:...T AfterTbrV" s death! wien the 0flolhi fuitl. gulnml froSnd. llVls "nrtBphlliis w.s b.tpliwd by A iiaohw. who also baptised St. Paul, and was called Joseph.' "Of this Joseph the Armenian bishop wort on lo say that he dwelt in Armeuin and the East, fs rreatij auected toe society 01 uiuup3 nun iiu fo. n,u rtrnunipneet. silent, and charitable. and did not speak except when spoken to, and then only to tea or onrtsis Buiicnug, ucmu, Bud resurrection. He was very tenuciom at to the character and rank of hia questioner, and TPry Indifferent in the matter ot gilts fond, and raiment. 01 Ibid Jew, or his double, Mr. bur in K Gould collects many and various accounts from the Netherlands, from BobeinU and from Arabia, where he seems to have passed or Elijah, but none ot these preseut any considerable discrepancy from the account ol the Armenian bishop, until we come to the tei timony of Paul von Kitzen, Doctor of the Holy Scriptures and Bishop of Schleswi?, who de clared that when he was young, in the winter of 1647 A. D. 'on Sunday, in church, he ob served a tali man, with his balr hanging over liis shoulders, standing barefoot during the. sermon, over against the pulpit, listening with deepest attention to the discourse; and when ever tbe name of Jesus was mentioned, bowing himself profoundly and humbly, with sighs and beating ol the breast, lie had no other cloth ing in the bitter cold of winter except a pair of "bote which were in tatters about bis feet, and a coat with a girdle which reached to his feet; bis general appearance was that of a man cl fifty years.' "Alter church the doctor obtained an Inter view with the stranger, and elicited information which, though more clrcumstautial than the Armenian bishop's story, differed irorn it mate rially. The Jew gave uis name as Ahasuerus, and professed that he bad been an unbelieving cobbler at the the timo ot the Crucifixion. Gaz ing from his doorstep at the sad procession to Calvary, be had tried to curry favor with the Jews by hurrying Jesus forward, when he fain would have rested a moment from his heavy burden. Jesus looking upon him, rebuked him in the words, 'I shall stand and rest, bat thou ehalt go to the last day.' "The doom presently began to work. He was constrained to go lorth into foreign lands, and on revisiting Jerusalem after the lapse of years, fonnd not one stone left standing on another. In this account, as in ot tiers, great stress is laid on the Jew's never smiling; and in Yon Eitzen's narrative he is made lo interpret the purpose of God in this Judgment upon him, and to con arm tbe truth ot his tale of mauy wanderings by sub mitting to have his knowledge of Eastern geo graphy and history tested by the Rector ot the Hamburg University. Another new feature is his strong indignation at any profane use of Christ's name. "Ibis was In 1547. He la spoken to at Madrid and Vienna in tbe same centnry, but, as the world waxes older, writers evince a care to say little of him on their personal testimony. Bulen ger. In the history of his own time, takes espe cial pains to guard himself against the suspicion of belief in this story. In 1640 two burghers of Brussels fall in with, this ubiquitous Jew, or one Who answers his, description, and (it does not exactly appear why) conclude that their com panion is 'Isaac Laquedom, the Jew who would not let Christ rest on his door step' (p. 21). He turns up in London at the beginning of the eighteenth century, and seems to have won the ear of the Ignorant, but only the ridicule of the wealthy. The curious, however, would appear to have questioned him pretty ritjldly over a range ot History extending from to Crucifixion to the Cru&adfs. He did not think much of Arabic hietor, he professed acquaintance wJtu Alohammed And his lather, and said he was sojourning In rfme when Nero seWt on lire." f Here is a description or- " TBS HOME OF FBESTBB JOHN. "Our home 'is the home of elephants, drome daries, camels, crocodiles, meta-collinarum. cametennue, tensevetes, wild asses, white and red lions, white bears, white merules, crickets, griffins, tigers, lamias, hyenas, wild horses, wild oxen, and wild men, men with horns one-eyed, men with eyes before and behind, centaurs, latins, satyrs, pigmies, forty-ell-high giants, ryclops, and similar women. It is the home, too, of the phoenix, and ot nearly all living animals. We have some people subject to us who feed on the flesh of men and of prematurely born animals, and who never fear death. When any of these people die their friends and rela tions eat them ravenously, for they regard it as a main duty to munch human flesh. Tneir names are Gogaud Magog, Anie, Agit, Azenath, Fommepen, Befari, Oo'net-Hamante, Azrlmandn, Viiitelolel, Casbei, Alanel." THB DIVINING BOD. Here is a curious story, In which we use the condensation of an English reviewer: . "On the night of July 6, 1002, a wine-seller and his wile were robbed and murdered in a cel lar at Lyons. No elue could be found to the murderers in the bottle wrapped in straw or the bloody hedging-bill found on the morrow beside the corpses. The authorities were urged to send for Aymar, who, four years before had, it would ueem, so far succeeded In the use of his divining rod (aided, perhaps, by the terrors of a guilty conscience in one of the accused) as to denounce the perpetrators of a theft. With his rod, too, be bad discovered a murder when he was look ing for a water spring, and by the same indi cator had saddled it, rightly or wrongly, on tbe murdered woman's husband. He was sent for to Lyons, and led by the authorities to the wineshop which had been tbe scene of the murder. Tbe rod in his band remained perfectly fctationarv till be reached the spot where each corpse bad lain, but then it became vio lently agitated, as was also Aymars puiae. G'atchinc the srpnf. as It wpre. hfi commenced bis trail from the cellar to the shop, from the Buup to me street, across tne Court to tne epis copal palace, down to the gate of the Rhone. Night Came On. Thon nil a lAinMpirl flialr iNext morning with three officers he passed the Rate, and descended the river's riRht bank, till IkL101' whJlch indicated that there were "cers, enabled him to pause in r?XZ0"' wttaite. Here he in a 7 iicrTii j Vl ln9 owner's dental, that Bin!. InTt" had. re,ted nd drunk out of a bottle, and he bo far obtained a suceesa that nn the rod declaring two hiMV,u?P.!." lAai'n to have been in contact with th "mr they admitted having let n two rnn Zf I thefr father's .order.. nd in hU absent on Bunday morning. The men, they said had r? tainly 'drunk out of the bottle mdicated. Some cipcrlmenU followed, which we give In the author's own words: "As already stated, a hedging-bill had been discovered on the scene of the murder, smeared With blood, and unquestionably the weapon witn wmcn me crime iiau wen commuted, Three bill from the tamo maker, and of ore eieely the same description, were obtained, and the four were token Into garden and secretly burird at Intervals. Avmnrwaa then brongbt, staff in hand, Into tho garden, and conducted over the snots where lay the bills. Tlie rod brpnn to vibrate ai bis feet Stood upon tLrJplaee wher was concealed the bill which barl boen used by the assassins, hut was motionless else where. Still unsatisfied, the lour bills were ex bnnied and concealed anew. The Comptroller of the province himself bandaged the sorcerer's eyrs, aud led him by the band from place to place. The divining rod showed no signs of novemerit till it approached the blood -stained Weapon, when it began to oscillate. "JUe magistrates now resolved to authorize a further puri!'- Aymar was nccompauied bv a comnanv of arrliers. 0 ft at first, then by boat, with frequent landings wherever bis ron denoted a tarrying pince ot tne lugitivcs, no followed the trail to the military cattio of Br.Llon, where be dared not use his rod without special authority, thoueb tho violent beating of h a pulse gave indications of a 'Ond.' Back went he to Lyons, anl ere he could again reach Sablon time had sped, and tho murderers, ho asserted, bod got off. He how desceuded the Rhone in pursuit, as far as Ueaucaire. His rod told him that one of tho three fugitives was there, and checked him at the town prison, within which it singled one prisoner, a hunch back, out of fifteen, as tbe Individual after whom the search was Instituted. This hunchback had Just been committed for a theft in the fair then going on. "lie w as led back to Lvon?, in whicn he per flated he bad never set foot, by the exact route along which Aymra's rod bad tracked his flight. At every resting place he was recognized. At Bugnols, where he aud bis comrades hal slept, tbe taveru keeper and his wite swore to bia Identity, and gave the same description of his compniilocs as had been given by the gardener's children. Hereupon tne hunchback admitted his participation in the murder, which be said bad been committed by two Provencals, whose EtrvHiit ho was. His answers at his first Intel location strongly confirmed the saga city ot tho divining rod. The bill-book and the hour tallied. There might be nothing in this. But Lis confession detailed the move ments of tbe murderers, irom tbe cellar, where the deed was done, to the shop which was I rcsenily rifled, and thence through the street to tho large courtyard in which tbenigbtwas PDsecci. rexi aay tney icu rayons, tarry ing there Is a little discrepancy here for a moment at a gardener's cottage. Tbe use ot the boat, the sojourn at the military cried. almost everything, corresponded up to the cap ture of Beaucaire. "To cut a lotiff storv short- Avmnr wnanrt so successful in his search for the two princi pals. At the prison, w here he f ancied he had run one to the ground, he met with balk. He mistook his man. But eventually he traced both to the frontier, where the chase had to be uisconunueu. But the most Interesting part of the account is that which shows how Aymar's powers uescrieu mm wnen ne came up to fans, xnero "the Prince do Conde submitted him to various tests, and he broke down under every one. i ive holes were dug in the garden. In one was secreted gold, in another silver, in a third silver ana goia, in tne lourtn copper, ana in the tilth stones. Tbe rod made no glens in presence of the metals, and at last actually beean to move over the buried pebbles. He was sent to Chan tilly, to discover tho perpetrators of a theft of trout made in the ponds of the park. He went rotind the water, rod in hand, and it turned at spots where he said the nsn had been drawn out. Then, following the track ot tho thief. It led him to tbe cottage of one of the keepers, but did not: move oyer any ot the individuals then in the house. The keeper himself was absent, but arrived late at niuht: and on hearing what was said, he roused Aymar from his bed, instating on having bis innocence vindicated. The divining rod, however, pro nounced him guilty, and the poor lellow toot to his heels, much upon the principle recommenaea oy iuontequieu a while after. Said he, 'If you are accused of having stolen the towers of Kotre-Dame, bolt at once.' A peasant, taken haphazard from the streets, was brought to the sorcerer as one suspected. Tbe rod turned slightly, but Aymar declared that the man aia not steal-tne nsn, dui ate ot them, A boy was then introduced, said to be the keeper's eon. The rod rotated violently at once. This was the finishing stroke, and Aymar was etnt away Dy tne mnce in disgrace, it now transpired that the thclt of fish had taken place seven years before, and that the lad was no relation of tho keeper, but a country boy who had only been in Chantilly eight or ten months. M. Goyonnot, Recorder of the King's Council, broke a window in his bouse, and sent for the diviner, to whom he related a story of his having been robbed of valuables duting tbe night. Aymar indicated the broken win dow as the means whereby tho thief bad entered, and pointed out the window by which he had left with his booty. As no such rob bery had been committed, Aymar was turned out of the bouse as an impostor." A curious story of the uncertainty of human events is told bv Mr. Gould. Permit? is said In hp TApse for believing, but according to this tale a man's eyes are not always trustworthy wit nesses. SIB WALTER BiLEIOH IN FBISOK. "Sir Walter, in prison, was composing the second volume of his 'History of the World.' Leaning on the sill of his window, he meditated on tbe duties of tbe historian to mankind, when suddenly bis attention was attracted by a dis turbance in the courtyard before his cell. He saw one man strike another wbom he supposed by big dress to be an officer; the latter at once drew bis eword, aud ran the former through the body. The wounded man felled his adver sary with a stick, aud then sank upon the pavement. At thfs juncture the gaard came up and carried off the officer insensible, and then the corpse of the man who had been run through. "Next day, Raleigh was visited by an Inti mate Jriena, to whom he related the the cir cumstances. To his astonishment his friend unhesitatingly declared that the prisoner bad mistaken tbe whole series of incidents whioh had passed before bis eyes. The supposed offi cer w as not an officer at all, but the servant of a foreign ambassador; it was he who had dealt the first blow; be bad not drawn bis sword, but tbe other had snatched it from his side, and had run him through the body before any one could interfere; whereupon a stranger among the crowd knocked the murderer down with his stick, and some of the ambassador's retinue corned off the corpse. Raleigh's friend added that the government had ordered the arrest and immediuteltrial of the murderer, as tbe man as sassinated was a principal servant of the Spanish ambassador. " 'Excuse nie,' said Raleigh, 'but I cannot have been deceived, as you suppose; for I was eyewituet-s to the events, which took place under my own window, and the man fell on that spot where you see a paving-stone standing up above the rest.' " 'My dear Raleigh,' replied his friend, 'I was Bitting on that stoue when tbe fray took place, and 1 received this slight scratch on my cheek in snatching the eword from tbe murderer; aud upon my word of boner you have been deceived in eveiy particular.' "Sir V alter, when alone, took np tbe second volume of his history, which was in manuscript, and contemplating it, thought, 'If I cannot fcelisve my own eyes, how can I be assured of the truth of a tithe of the events which hap pened ages before I was born V and he flung the manuscript in the fire."
