graina of purc gold went to tho dollar
in gold, 3714; grains of puro silver were
required for u silver dollar. With tho
allov added it took 25.8 grains of Btand

Tho church was uark lt was twl-
light, and only ouo chapel was illu-
minatcd. A crowu 01 Kneenug women
fllled tho aislcs. A fow prieata stood
oround tho altar, and beforo it woro
two rows of boys, nbout ton or twolvo
years of ngo, drossed in tho Spnnish
costumo of tho middlo nges, with tights
nnd plumed hats. Tho music of vio
lins broko tho profound ailence, and
tho row8 of boys bogan to advauco nnd
retrent, to miuglo nnd bow, in n aort of
contrn dnnco. Pre8ontly, without paus
ing iu their alow, graceful movcmonts,
thoy sang n low, harmonioua chant.

Tho story is told that ono of tho for
mer nrchbiahopa of Scville, who sh u!d
evidently havo boen born iu Purituni
cal daya, objccted to tho dauce ns pro
fanc, nnd ordorcd that it bc dlscontln
ued. Thia nrouacd such oppositiou,
not only from the nuthoritics of tho
cathedral but nmong tho inhabitauts of
Seville, that the question waa referred
to tho popo. The latter expressed his
inability to judgo without having seon
the danco; accordingly the entiro troop
of choir boys waa conveyed to Itomo
and thc performanco given. His holi
ness emilcd nnd thought it quito un
objcctionablc; but to pucify tho in
exorablo archbisliop, ho decrced that
tho danco ahould contiuuo only until
tho clothea tho boya thcn had on should
bo worn out. Thia was cquolly eatis
factory to thc astutc outhoritics of tho
cathedral. Tho costumea wero used
only ou special occasiona, onco or twico
n yenr; they wero cnretuiiy waicucu,
and when nn nrticlo becamo threadbaro
it wns replaced at once. So that nl
though tho dcereo is still binding, until
tho prcsent dny tho costumcs havo
never becn entirely worn out, and prob
ubly never will be.
