hair-breath escape of a "Steeple-Jack"
in Lancaster, England.
The mau had" been engaged in repairing
the top of one of the tall chimneys
which are common in the manufacturing
districts of the north, and
the repairs being completed, he proceeded
to lower the scaffolding whereon
he had been working. This he did
piece by piece, by means of a rope, he
himself remaining on the dizzy summit
of the chimney. At length the
last plank had been lowered, and the
steeple-jack himself was preparing to
descend, when, to his horror, and
equally to that of the spectators below,
his rope became detached and fell to
the ground.
The man's perilous position was at
once evident. Resting on a narrow
ledge a hundred feet above the ground,
he had no apparent means of de-cent,
nor was theie and way of assisting
from below. The excitement quickly
spread throughout the town, ana soon
a large crowd had assembled.
How long could he retain his dangerous
position iu mid-air? Would he
be overcome by vertigo, caused by fear,
and fall headlong 10 the ground?
Such were the thoughts passing
through the minds of the excited
crowd of oulookers. .Some one oUggested
that a kite should be flown with
a cord attached to take up a rope, but
no kite was available. The steeplejack
was gesticulating as if beseeching
assistance that those below were anxious
yet powerless to render.
A piteous shriek rent the air as a
womau ran quickly into the crowd.
"His mother !" was whispered from
mouth to mouth. A deadly silence
spread over the assembly, and all eyes
were turned lowards the woman, who
with a stony look of horror, was gazincr
nniv'iirH nt hur won. Xiuldeillv her
voice again rang I bough the air, sharp
aud clear, amid the pervading silence.
"Unravel tha stookiu'!" she cried out;
"Tom, ma.dear, unravel tha stockin'!"
It wasa flash of inspiration. Wise
men had been vainly endeavoring to
devise a means of rescue, but it was
left for the poor woman who had knitted
the stockings that he wore to find
the way to save him. A hearty cheer
burst fom the crowd when this was
recognized, and soou it was seen that
the steeple-jack hail taken oil" one of
his stockings and was unpicking the
stitches.
It was a long process but at last it
. wasflnished, anu another cheer burst
forth as the woolen thread floated
lightly to the ground. Thin twine
was in readiness, and this was affixed
the woollen filament to be drawn up
by the man above. Then a stout
string was fastened to the twine; and
. this being drawn up too, a cord was
fastened to the string, and, finally, a
rope to the cord. The steeple-jack ibis
time fixed the rope firmly on the
chimucy, and, to the joy of ihe multitude'
they saw him dascend in safety^
i. lie mea inai ocuurreu u? me nioiiier,
to tell her son to unravel his stocking,
iu spoken of as "u Hush of inspiration."
And so it may really have
been. For I have 110 doubt that lie,
whose tender mercies are oyer all his
works, dots at time put into the mind of
man the fitting thought, as well as the
high resolve, in the needful time.
Mujestic Palms.
The talipot, or great fan-plam, grows
for about thirty years, and reaches a
height of more than a hundred feet.
Then, for the first and only tiim, it
blossoms. What looks like a single
huge bud four feet in height is (level- ,
oped and finally bursts into a pwumid 1
of snowy plumes com posed of numberless
small creamcolored flowers.
The cluster is sometimes twenty-five
feet high, and ut its ba&e has a diameter
of forty feet. As Miss Gumming
says, ill her "Two Happy Years in
Ceylon," "It is a glorious object, and is
visible from an immense distance, as it
ofen grows among flat surroundings,
such as rice fields."
The natives turn the leaves to a
thousand uses, domestic arid literary.
When on a journey, and especially if
they tre on a pilgrimage to some sacred
shrine, each of them carries a portion
of one of these great leaves tightly
folded into a long, narrow form,
like a gigantic closed fan.
This serves as a sunshade or raincloak
by day, and at night several
friends contribute every man his
palm-leaf, three or four of them, with
the pointed end upward, forming a i
very fair bell-shaped tent. And very
picturesque a few groups of these tents ]
iook wiieu pucneu in some roresi giaue
round blazing camp-fires.
Formerly the exact grade of every
noble was shown by the number of
such sun-shades which he was entitled
to have carried before him, and on j
state occasions a leaf, inlaid with
pieces of glittering tale, and folded
like a huge fan, formed the ceremonial 1
canopy which was held above his head
by one or more attendants.
The leaves attain their largest size
when the tree is about twenty years of
age, at which time they sometimes
measure fwenty-five feet from the base
of the leaf-stalk to the outer edge of
the fan.
Apples as a Medicine.?Chemically
the apple is composed of vegatahle
fibre,albumen, sugar, gum, chlorophyll,
malic acid, gallic acid, lime
and much water. Furthermore, the
German analysts say that ihe apple
contains a larger percentage of phosphorous
is admirably adapted for renewing
the essential nervous matter, j
lethicin. of the brain and spinal cord. ;
it is, perhaps, for the same reason rude- <
ly understood that old Scadinavian tra- 1
ditions represented the apple as the :
food of the god's who, when they felt i
themselves to be irrowinsr feeble and in- 1
firm, resorted to this fruit for renewing ,
their powers of mind and body. Also, ;
the acids of the apple are of signal use
for men of sendeutary habits whose
livers are sluggish in action, these ac- '
ids serving to eliminate from the body '
noxious matters, which, if retained,
would make the brain heavy and dull,
or bring about jaundice or skin eruptious.?London
Hospital.

The mati who spends his life in "getting
even" for real or supposed injuries,
is a torment to himself, and,'
generally a bore to his friends. I;
