Ask a Turkish Mohmninedan for In formation on the subject and he will tell you that It Is because they are in form like a crescent, the sacred Ml' Idem of Islam. A Polish .lew will explain that nt the paaaovor the blood sprinkled upon the iintei and doorposts, in the manner directed by their ritual, forms the chief points of nit nrch; hence, obviously, the value of arch shaped talismans such ns horseshoes are. The stolid and unlmaglnatira Rus sian peasant, on the other hand, main tains that the luck associated with the horseshoe is due cbjofly to the inetal. Irrespective of Its shape.

Many attempts bad been made lo break the spell and In duce the country to remain perma nently above the waters, but nil were rain until one day n daring adven turer threw a horseshoe from a boat on to the topmost peak of the Wleklow mountains Just as they were disap pearing beneath the waves. Then ai last win tbe ban removed. The Emcr nld Isle Aegan forthwith to rise again from the ocean depths Into which It had sunk. And It has been dry land more or less ever since. In England, up to comparatively re cent times horseshoes wen? extensive ly used almost everywhere as anti witch charms, and the custom is not even yet an extinct one. No witch, it used to be said, could enter n building over the door of which a horseshoe -or. better 9(111, three horseshoes bat! been nllixed, prongs downward. The origin of this particular belief Is referable to the old legend of St. Dltnstnn. This versatile English eccle siastic was a skilled farrier, and one day while nt work in his forgo the evil one entered In disguise and requested Dunstnn to shoe his "single hoof." The saint, although he at once recog nlzed his malign customer, acceded but caused hltn so much pain during the opera 1 16b that Satan begged blm to desist. This Dunstnn did, but only a .'tor he had made the evil one prom Ise that nertlier he nor any of the less er evil spirits, his servants, would eve! molest the inmates of a house where horseshoe was displayed.
