A Sweet Joke.?The following
neat stroke of business deserves men
tion, onl'nccount of the grand simpli
city of the means set in action. The
scene is in a drugg'st's shopnt Fog^ia,
in the Neapohtan~province of Cupi
tanata; time, night, the druggist hav
ing just lighted u handsome silver
lump, the admiration and envy of the
neighborhood. A mau enters, li dd
ing his hat in his bund.
"Mr. Druggist, will you please to
give me n hatful of syrup ol tamar
inds?" says the Btrnujer.
"A hatful of syrup ! what do you
mean?" cries the druggist, opening
his eyes very wide.
"Do not mortify me by a refusal.
It is a bet with a friend; so just fill up
my hut, and lell me what is to pay/'
The druggist was a merry fellow;
the conceit pleased him; and so hi:
brought a big-bellied flask; full up to
the neck with syrup, which was duly
transferred to the customer's wide
"There,'! said the druggist.

?The following, from Gibbon's ''De

no.v. ''The policy of the emperors
ami the senate, as far as it concerned
religion, was happily seconded by the
reflection of the enlightened^ and by
the i habits of' the-stYpcrstitiOu-?: The
various modes of worship, which pre
vailed in tin- Roman world, were all
considered by the people as equally
true; by the philosopher as equally
false; and by the magistrate as equal
ly useful. And thus toleration pro
duced not only mutual indulgence,
but even religious concord."

if he might be permitted to kiss he:,

"No," said she, "I can't allow that;
but I'll tell you what I will do; I'll

may kiss me, and I'll hug you."
