The road laj throtiKli a dense forest, and the day i was oppneiively Lot. I nrrlved at last 1 at a eroasroad and sat down under the 1 ahnde of the tret's to ri'st. A signpost ! pointed Its two nruis down the con- j verting ronds. On one of them was In- ! scribed "14 verst t Jauovn." on the 1 other "17 erts to Hhadowo." Pn-si-nt ly the creaking of wheel and the slow "clop, flop" of a horse's hoofs n the road behind rotiseil me. A cart piiej hlIi with tinware was coming down the roa-L with the driver perched on i the top nf the load. "Cood dny. brother." I called out as the c.irt. with Its sorry horse, came abreast of me. The man returned my a:. lute, and the horse, clad of any ex cuse to rest his si. 'e;s. came to a ! standstill In the middle of the road. ! Which way are you going?" I akcd. j "To Jauova. There Is a market there tomorrow." "Hut there U also a market In Sha dowa," 1 answered, "slid it Is a mjre Important place ttisn Janova." "So It Is. sj It Is." the driver replied, with perfect Indifference. "What have you for sale?" "Plenty of good tiuwore, aa you cen ace. brother. 1 have worked for all weeks to make this cartload." "Well, good luck to you and your tinware," I said, pulling and eating the berries within reach. "Will you take It to Jauova or ShadowaT" Tie man picked up the bit of cord which served aa relna and prepared to goon. "I shall leave that to my horse.- he answered cnllously. The lumbering wa,j on moved off and finally passed out of alght down tbe Janova road, which tbe horse bad elect ed to take.-St James' Garette. WeiaorUl a a Itaator. In the little town of Forllmpopoll. near Bologna, there la a memorial tab let In the Municipal theater to the mem ory of a famous robber chieftain named Psssntore. The reason why tbe the ater Is the borne of bla memorial Is that In It was performed bla most fa mous exploit In September. 1S5I. while one of Itosslnl's operas wos be ing performed In the presence of all the local beauty and fashion. Passatore and bis band "held up" the audience and robbed them of all their valuables to the last penny. Aa laaralaaa lrtatr. It requires a great deal of Ingenuity to become a successful printer. Itiya with printing presses and ambitious to develop Into great printers should re member this and exercise their Inven tive qualities at every opportunity. A stjry Is told of a Prague printer 1 who got Li ruse If out of a very dlsagree ! able dilemma by the use of bis tngen I ious mind. He was once caile J upon to t print a report of the board of trade of LU native city In the two languages of the itjuntry. Herman and Cicvb. and the representatives of each national ity strenuously desired that their tongue should occupy the first of the parallel columns on each page. The wary printer gt out of bis dilemma by printing oue column upside down' throughout the book and arranging the titles accordingly. that each lan guage baa a iront column on every page. Haw ta Walk. There is no virf.ie In a dawdling saunter. The slow au.l languid drag ging one fjot after the other, which some people call walking, would tire an athlete. It utterly exhausts a weak person, nnd that Is the reasjn why many del'cjte persons think they can not walk." To derive any benefit from the exercise It Is necessary to walk wltb a light, elastic step, which swing i the weUlit of the body ao easily from one leg to the other that its weight Ls not felt and which produces a healthy glow, showing that tbe sluggish Wojd Is stirred to action In the most remote veins.
