ABOUT BIBLES The finest and largest collection of Bibles in the world is said to be that at the Bible house of the Bntih and Foreign Bible So ciety , in Queen Victoria street, London. A w nter m a cuneiit magazine has lately visited this building, and describes some of the famous and curious Bibles he saw. Iheru were sixteenth century Bibles, with columns and pages daubed out with red ochre by the h ind of the censor; Bibles of dead kings and queens, containing the sig natures of their owners; the "Wicked Bi ble," Issued in 1632, which said, "Thou shalt commit adultery," and brought a fine of 1 ,000 m irks to its unhappy publisher for unintentionally leading a weak world astray, and the "Breeches Bible" of 15G0, which said that Adam and Eve 'sewed leaves together and made themselves breeches " One of the bet manuscript Bibles which have come down from ancient times is a copv made by Thecla, a noble Christian lady of Alexandria in the fifth century It was brought from Alexandria to Con stantmoplc and giv en by the patriarch to the English ambassador for presentation to his sov erelgn, James I, and remained in the possession of the English kings until the royal library was presented to the nation by George II. Bible printing in England is done "by privilege of the queen," a privilege led by only three establishments, the Oxford press, the Cambridge press and ilessrs Scottlswoodo & Eyre, the queen's printers India paper, which has revolutionized Bible tnaking, is said to be a mechanical mysterj and a trade secret, known to only three men It Is made at the Wolvercote mills of the Oxford press In order to preserve the secret no employe Is allow ed to be in touch with more than one stage of the process The use of this paper has reduced the thickness of the Bible by one half.

The Anon and French halls simply were not In it, says a New York correspondent, with the ballet girls ball, or, to call it by it high sounding and pretentions title, "Coryphees Grand Carnival," an Terrace Garden last night. The crowd was large, the dresses both abbreviated nnd lengthy, while the hosiery was of every hue known under the sun. The weary, worn notes ot "Sweet Rosie O'Grady,' with the words flowing from the lips of a shrill-toned young woman, two bars in the rear of the orchestra, proclaimed at 2 o'clock this mornin,; that the ball "had at last got a move on It-elf, JUid had really bevome a "ball as is a ball ' The fun recame fast and furious after that hour; in fact, it was an approach of the days gone by. A fragile young flower, called "Beetriee" by her friend1', was having all kinds of a good time with herself, when there was a crash of chairs and a few musicians wero spilled. In the middle of the group was "Beetriee " The police warned her, and theieufter the men who made the music were safe.
