Lowenbach Bros., WEPNESDAY EVENING, UOT. 6 Th* St'.ng of a Bee. An eastern fable tells of a potentate who demanded that there should be brought to hlra the stinga of a thou eand beea kllled because one of their colony had dared commlt lese roajesty by stinglng tbe haad of royalty. Wben they were brought ln a Uny golden tbJmble the king was bo amazed to flnd that a thousand of the hypoder mlc polnts made sucb a little mass that he Issued a niBnlfesto to the ef fect that thereafter no person withln the bounds of the klngdom should complaln at the stlng of a bee. The lesson of the fable ls that petty an noyances hurt because they are exag gerated in the mind; that when they are seen in tbelr actual proportions they are so sllght as to merit only contempt. How much comfort would come to the majorlty of persons If they could but see the tlny slze of the bee stings that lead them to ncts of petulance, words of anger, expresslons of reproacb. The bee stlng annoy ances have caused Ufelong breaches of frlendshlp. They have broken up fam Uiee and caused anger and resentment to take the place of lore and fealty.? Baltimore American. Tbe Miaaiaaippi of Streets. A street ls ILke a river, wlth Ita hu? man currcnt carrylng all manner of drift between its banks of residences or shops on either side. And lf this elmile be approprlate then New York's Broadway Is the Mlsslssippi of streets. Probably no other avenue in the world presents so many contrasts in the flot sam and jetsam it cnrrles from Har lem to the Battery. Every type of hu manlty?uprooted saplings from farms and orchards, proud hulled craft in silks and satlns?may be descrlbed In the surglng mass. Banker and boot black, the swoggering swell nnd the draggled derellct, walk shoulder to shoulder-rush, rather, for Broadway la a maelstrom, tbe embodlment of New York's bustle and hurry, the place where nothlng can stand still. Rieh? ard LTardlng Davis once said that everybody "seems to bo trying to reach the bank to have a check cashed be? fore S o'cloek." - George Selbel in Pittaburg Gazette-Tlmes. Queer Collateral. "Here ls a fact as Btrange as lt Is true," said an Egyptologist. "Mum mles in ancient Egypt were used chlef ly as collateral. "Wben an Egyptlan wanted to bor row he gave his father's or grand father's mummy as security. Some tlmes, lf he requlred a large sum. he gave his father and both grandfathers, and he would even throw ln tbe mum? my of his mother-in-law If she for tunately happened to bo In a mumml fled state. "Joking aslde," the Egyptologist con tinued. "what I tell you ls the truth. An Egyptlan was not permttted to borrow" without pledging the mummy of some near relatlve. lt was dcemed ln Egypt both lmplous and infamous not to redeem so snered a pledge as that, and he who died with a family mummy still in pawn was hlmself bnrled in unconsecrated ground."?Cln cinnatl Enqulrer. Tho Poatage Stamp. Consider the postage stamp. It says nothlng regardlng the difficulty of the task asslgned to lt, but by dlnt of close application lt usually gets there; also it dellvers the goods. Again, if one lsn't enough to carry the thlng through, two or more by working hormonlously together see the thlng to a finlsh. No matter if the (mail) matter be weighty, it puts a good face (of Wash? ington) on It and goes dlrectly to the polnt. It gets licked nnd stampe.l upon, and men besmlrch its fair fea rures nnd ofttimes give it more to enrry than tbe (postal) union allows. But. in spite of all this. it sticks un fllnchlngly to the matter in hand by vlrtue of tbe fact that lt knows that It has good bncklng. Its stlck-to-it-lvity is worthy of em ulatlon by you.?Judge's Library. Water Colora. Water color palnting was gradually ralsed from the bard. dry style of tbe elghteentb century to its present brll llancy by the efforts of Nlcholson. Cop ley, Sanley and others.
