"An ancient Persian king," said the doctor, "had brou.hlt before himt a trai tor to the throne, who. after a brief hear ing, was condemne d to be strangled. "'Mercy. U king.' cried the unhalppy man. " 'No,' responled1 the king sternly. 'You have con- p;ired against me. and you must pay ti- penalty with your life. The clock is lnote tremblitlg ,n t'tostrokr of 12. When .t sounds ti: . Llar. you nfust bid fareor ,11 to earth.' "Quick as t.ullght te lprisoner turned to the clock, hlich Ltood by: the throne, and with a u ighty pullh threw it froml its pedestal., .ld it fell with a crash to the floor. " 'I bow to your will. 0 king!' he said cahnl. 'When this clock strikes I will die, at, I not before.' "As a tr; cute to his presence of mind the king -pared the prisoier's life, and after a brief ilmprisonment gave him his liberty." "Quite interesting." exclaimed a lady when the narrator had finished. "Shows that there is nothing new an der the sun." chimed in anotixar. "Humph-yes." said a small. quies man in the corner after the comnrments had run their course. "Very gucd story, tnd I hate to spoil it, but I must do it." "What?" exclaimed the story teller. "Yes, must do it. There were ac docks in ancient Persia, so the prisonet could not have smashed one."-London [it-Bits. An Invitation For Dolly. "Here is an invitation from Mrs. B. for a children's party, Dolly," said a mother, handing her little girl a note. "See hr-v nicely you can answer it your. self without my help." The child went off and in a few moments returned with the following: "Miss Dolly A. cannot accept Mrs. B.'s kind invitation, as she has something else to do that she likes much better." "Now, how can I teach that child con-' ventional lies'" said the parent laugh ingly as she handed the production to a visitor. "1 should not call it conventionality. but consideration for the feelings of ocrn ers. It is not necessary to be brusqlue to he truthful." rejoined the friend. "There is a great deal said about society's white lies, but I am quite sure that children are too genuinely honest not to detect the difference between the false and the true, and there is no danger of a child's becoming untruthful by using the for. mules current in society."-N-ew York Tribune. He Made Allowasee, A French journal reports the case of a man who entered a coffee house and sat down near a customer who wsa reding the morning newspaper which belonged to the establishment. "After you with the paper. If you please," said the newcomer. The other man nodded ament and I went on reading, but at the end of half I an hour had hardly fnished the arstcol man. Just as the waiting customerwas about making a second and perhaps im- a patient application he noticed that the I reader had lost one of his organs of a sight. His resentment vanished. c "Ah," said he in a low voice, 'l am a not surprised. The poor man has only ri one eye and has to read everything twice over."-Exchanae. F A ims Fire Resae. In the forenoon of Jan. 81, 1882, the d old building at Park row and Beekman L street caught fire. The 6-story building g had only one stairway and was filled p with people. The building being old it and dry, the flame spread rapidly, and ci many people found a terrible death. Just as t seemed that no human being di could escape death three men were seen T in an upper window. The firemen tt quickly brought ladders, but the longest in reached only half the distance. In the at crowd a colored bootblack, Charles w Wright, saw that fastened to the roof of TI the building, just above the window Il where the men were, was a telegraph wi. , and that this wire ran acroa the as staC. to the top of a telegraph polei as aCit ranpr. th e saw that tf the wire was cut in the w ark it would fall right across the win- .e dow, so that the men could descend by Ti it In an instant he seised a frema' wrench that lay near by, ran acros the .trest and began toclimbthestall, mooth tel5 aph pole.

A husitees mnan in this cit.y who is n to hirs cars in the work necessary to gather capital to float an enterpriseand at the same ti.mue to keep inf.::ation of the nature of it away from busy rivals. found time last week to say: "Did youen ever think that a Iptent does not patent in this country? Well. it's a fact. All that the patent office does is to give you a paper with some writing on it, but if another tman steals your idea and goes to manufacturing your invention the patent office will not lift a finger to pro tect you or to, stand by its own decision. The fact that you've got a patent is a point in your favor, but you've got to hire lawyers and fight the thief in the courts, and if he can stand it to hire lawyers longer than you can that settles you, and you might as well make him a present of your invention. There are lots of men in the country who are getting rich on the discoveries of other people. All they hail to do was to take 'erm and fight the real discoverers into poverty. The patent office, to be respected and to be of any use, ought to have the power to cause the stealer of a patent to besen to prison."-New York Sun. Si'otchl Retleence. A Scotch laborer was dlying. He had four little children. After lying silent for awhile he said he would like to see them, and the ipr wife brought them to the bedside. All lie did was to take each of the three elder children by the hand and to say, "Gude day." Then he said to the youngest, a wee thing 2 years old, "Will ye gle me a bit kiss?" The mother, lifting up the wondering child, said, "Say ta-ta to your father." "Ta-ta," said the little boy in a load, cheerful voice, and then ran out of the cottage to play. The poor father cl.eed his eyes: the tears ran down his cheeks, but he said no more. The abun dance of his heart choked his utterance. He was weary, too, and so gude day was his only word of parting.-"Twen ty-fve Years of St. Andrew's." About Talking Cattle. You know the superstition which claims that cattle have the gift of speech at midnight Christmas eve. A Schles wig story warns us to take such asser tions by faith rather than crave for knowledge by sight.

One would think from their accounts that the southern 1 mountains were swarming with cave tIwellers. The aim seems to be to per petuate the ideas of that class of philan thropists who find a peculiar pleasure in contemplating poverty, ignorance and legradation in the south since the civil was Not long since The Sun noticed an ap peal of this sort for aid to "mission work for mountain whites." showing that it was in effect a libel upon the people it professed to describe. Any person fa miliar with the Appalachian region of the south would see at a glance how ab surd the whole thing was. The Christian Union for Dec. 31. 1512. contains a letter from Rev. LD Atkins. a Methodist minis ter of Hendersonville. N. C.. which com pletely demolishes the "mountain white" myth. Mr. Atkins will he conceded to know what he is writing about, Hie was oorn and reared in the alleged God for saken region of poverty, ignorance, vice and degradation. He entered cc" there, entered the ministry teeean spent 17 years there asm * ther and teacher. mn ter "As a Methodist minister." he says. "I have gone into the most out of the way places and mingled freely with all sorts of people in 20 counties of North Caro lina and Virginia and in nearly all the worst parts of east Tennessee. I have visited these people at their homes, have eaten with them. slept in their houses and seen them in every condlition." Yet Mr. Atkins has not once beheld the slum scenes Mrs. Paddock described in a re cent number of The Christian Union. 'Your correspondent," he says, "must have found some secluded spot I never saw, for in all my travels I never saw the things she writes of, and it seems strange that I should not even have beard of such things in all these yeari. There is poverty here and ignorance, too, but neither is in that prevalent form you would suppose from the article of Mrs. Paddock. You might live here an age and neG hear of such savage and weird funeral customs ae Professor Bemis. an other correspondent writing from the south, told your readers about." The situation is not such as was de scribed by The Union's correspondents. Putting it in a nutshell, Mr. Atkins says t Mrs. Paddock's picture: "She has pre aented the very worst possible case that Iould be found in the remotest part and Made it a sample of all the 2.000.000 here, o that if any one should receive an im oassion from such writing he would sup aes no other kind of people could be band here." As a matter of fact. the "mountail whites" are not a distinct class. Theli ancestors says Mr. Atkins. were not out laws. but pioneers from the coast coun try. They generally own their farms and make a comfortable living. To say they bunt for a living is absurd. There is lit. t* wealth and not as much luxury z might be. but the people live decently. ihere are some log houses, three-fourth of which have windows.

Few persons are unable to read and write, and such cases are so rare as to aite surprise among the neighbors. As respects the girls who were doe sribed as overworked and vicious, Mr. Atkins says not one in a hunded would know herself by that desacriptia. "The common virtues," he says-"chastity, honesty. truthfulness, etc.-are rather more prevalent than in other sections 1 ave sen The girls are healthy, strtm and fall of spirit.
