One of the most valuable relics in the collection of the famous church of Ara Cceli, Home, is the noted image which has frequently been figured and de scribed in the investigative magazines under the heading of "The Oldest Doll In the World. " In Italy this valuable carving is called "II Bambino" ("The Infant"), and legend say3 that it is a fig ure of the child Jesus, carved from a tree on the Mount of Olives, the iden tical ono under which Christ underwent the agony on the night before the cruci fixion. According to the popular belief it was carved by a Franciscan monk or pilgrim (accounts differ on that score) and painted by St. Luke. In Rome the figure has been greatly venerated for centuries on account of the power at tributed to it of miraculously healing the sick. When cardinals and other his dignitaries and officials are su; be on their deathbeds the "Bambino" is often taken to the sickroom, and many are the miraculous cures that have been reported. When taken on such missions the "Bambino" is never carried, but is taken by a prelate in a tan colored coach over which floats the holy vermilion flag. There is a legend that the figure was once stolen from its place in the church reliquary, but that it escaped and walked back. This supposed inci dent is made the subject of a poem by Aldrich which bears the title of "A Legend of AraCoeli."—St. Louis He public. church osed to This iMkei Wh»«t Croft. Sir John Bennt-fc Lawcs, the well known English chemist and scientific agriculturist, has issued his annual re view of the wheat cropcf 1895. He says that the chief features of ihe crcp are the high quality of the grain and the •mall quantity of straw. Whatever the actual weight may be of a bushel of grain grown, farmers are required to deliver 63 pounds to the bushel. This year the measured bushel frequently weighs 63 pounds, and British grain will be in request by millers. The shorn;ess of the straw is a great misfortune, as the value cf the straw it the chief reason that many farmers con tinue to grow wheat. The actual im ports of wheat within the harvest year of 1694-5 were nearly 24,750,000 quar ters, instead of 81,500,000 quarters, at was estimated. Sir John estimates the total available supplies from home and | 1 foreign sources at 32,333,000 quarter*. —New York Sun. - } LEVI STRAUSS & CO?
