When a boy is born in Persia a ser

announces the news by saying : “Praise
be to God the most merciful, you are
the father of a boy “Masballah !”
replies the father, “ praise is indeed duo
to the one God, great and merciful
It may be observed here that the same
fervent gratitude is not exhibited on the
birth of a girl, but the alllicted father
ejaculates instead in a resigned tone,
“is that, so < then wo shall do the best
we can for her.” He has an eve on the
future years when he will be forced to

lad is launched into the troublous world
he is firmly bound in swaddling bands
which are kept tightly swathed until he
is six months old. He resembles a piece
of wood rather than anything elso until
he is six'months old, when his tiny arms
are released and he may lie on his back
in the cradle and play with the trinkets
hanging from the cross-bar of the richly
oarved and painted oradle to which a
cord is attached. The mother or nurse, :
sitting and knitting in the doorway shad

actually rescued the whole amount un

a. scHOousov in England hit upon a
jovel method of obtaining the answer
to an arithmetical problem. He dropped
into a gr cer’s shop on his way to school,
and said he wanted certain commodities
at certain prices. Alter exhausting his
list, he said : “Now, if I give you half
a soverign, what change .sliail I get
back!” The grocer told him, where
ujipn he thanked the shopman and turn
ed to go. “Wait for the things,” called
the grocer; and his disgust can be
imagined when the ingenious urchin
told him he was too late for scho 1 and
as he hadn’t learned liis arithmetic
lesson, he had adopted that me liud of
getting the sum worked for him.

A Biddeford, Me., Correspondent of
the Boston (ilobo says :—Almost twelve
years ago Alfred Armstrong, of this
city—then a resident of I.ako Village,
H-, gave up all oridinary pursuits
and began to devote bis entire time and
energies to the carvings from solid blocks
of wood with no other tool than an ordin
ary jackknife. Armstrong always pos
sessed the ingenuity commonly supposed
to belong to the genuine Down cast
Yankee, and his knife and pine stick
bad been his insejiarable companions
during leisure hours from liis youth up.
Having raised a good-sized family of
childron until they were big enough to
turn to and help support the family, lie
concluded to forsake ordinary labors al
together, and spend the remainder of
his days in the gratification of his whit
tling genius, l'rom the fashioning of
small toys he turned his attention to
carving likenesses of every thing that
presented itself for a model, from big,
solid blocks of wood, carefully preserv
ing every specimen of his handiwork,
wiiethorgoi.il, bad or indifl'erent. AVith
in tile past five years his oldest son, who
inherits hisfstiier’s peculiar inclination,
developed su h ingenuity and patience
that he, too, gradmi od from oommou
labor, and united with his father with
equally pa iont do.o ion in his original
oraft.
To-day they have a big tent full of
curiosities and travel about the country
at the beaches and fairs exhibiting their
museum of wooden wonders, writh finan
cial returns which arc not nearly pro
portionate to t'.e patience and toil
which tlieir curiosities 1 c present. Their
art seems to have been particularly de
voted to the production in wood of all
kinds of animal life. Every species of
bird, nuadruned nr TOntiltt nnnn wlnnli i
their eyes ever fell has been cut out of
Bolid wood with thoir jackkuives, sand
paper being the only other thing used
in thoir Work. A few of their figures are
jointed, instead of being entirely carved,
but these joints are fashioned with the
jackknife in all cases, and never is nail,
screw orglueused. Some of the ob ects
are as true to nature as any ever produo
ed by the ordinary metlio Is of tiie sculp
tor, and others are executed with an ap
parent carelessness which any school
boy could imitate. Some are handsomely
ornamental, and all would find ready
sa e as toys, but to the owner they aro
treasures beyond price, and he cannot
be induced to part with even the most!
insignificant, and, as he continually
keeps up his w hittling, his stock of curi
osities is constantly increasing. No
piyn or or sculptor was ever more wrap
ped up in his art or more enthusiastic
over his pr<.duotions than this old fellow,
now about (’>• • years of age. who has been
in poverty all his life, and who doesn’t
appear ambitious to better his condit
ion.
Among his curiosities are all sorts of
puzzles cut out or put together in small
necked bottles. In one is a man sawing j
wood, with saw and saw horse, which j
closely fill the space of the bottle. In j
another is a yoke of ca'tie neatly carved,
with a man standing beside them. In \
another is a ship, and in another a
house. How these things got inside
the bottles is au inexplicable puzzle to
those who have looked over the old
man’s collection, and he does not give
any light upon the matter.
Jlesides these puzzles and his wooden
menagerie are houses which are almost
big enough for dog kennels, and which
might almost serve as models of modem
architecture, all of oue piece aud carved
from a solid block. There aro also
boxes and cases composed of hun
dreds of different kinds of woods, firmly i
inlaid and finely finished. The mos't I
remark able piece of th is kind of work is
a violin case made of 2,036 pieces of I
wood ot 106 different kinds.
Of his puzzles, perhaps the most
mysterious is a big snake inside a glass
jar, cut out in a coil which almost com- !
pletely fills the inside. Th neck of this
jar is perhaps one inch in diameter, and !
a big wooden stopple is put down
uu-uugu miu locked unuerneatu witn a :
wooden pin.
One of the best carvings is a yoke of j
oxen hitched to a hay-rack, in which !
rides a man. The wliolo tiling is uhout i
three feet in length and half as high, I
and, like all his other works, was cut out j
of a solid block, even to the rack and
cart-wheels.
Several times he has attempted to re
produce pictures in his carvings, and
the handsomest thing among hisob'ects
was made in this manner. His sub eot
was a picture of three Russians in a
double-seated s'edge drawn by a pair of
horses and pursued by half a dozen
wolves. Upon this, as well as some
others of his best pieces, he has used
paint after the work was finished, much
to the improvement of its edeot The
pair of horses on the dead run are per
fectly modelled, and even Ihe expres
sions upon the faces of the riders has
been reproduced by his knife. The
wolves, also, true to life, are jumping at
the back of the sledge, and the man ]
npon the rear seat has half arisen and J
is in the aot of firing upon them from a i
revolver. One of the men upon the
front seat holds the reins and the other
is urging the horses on with a whip.
Reins, whip, team, men and wolves are
all one piece of wood, the whole thing
being about two feet long and eight
inches high.
Mr. Armstrong himself admits that
this is his masterpiece. His exhibit is
certainly novel and wonderful, and the
patience and ingenuity of the man who
fashioned the objeots is indisputably
displayed, yet one can not help thinking
how much more profitable the same
amount of labor might have been had it
been expended in another direction.
Pearl Pishing in the Pacific.
Writing from New Zealand, a corres
pondent of the New York Times says:
Perhaps the most lucrative of all the en
terprises of theSouthPa -ific is that of the
pearl and pearl-shell fisheries, in which
large fortunes have already been made,
chiefly through the leeent great demand
for the mother of pearl in Europe,
where, within a few years, its utility
has been demonstrated in a thousand
directions before unsuspected. Pro- j
fiigions profits were made on the shores 1
_-—_~ Australia until the Govern
*■' 'dfering to the demauds of the
1 eluent, prevented the men
' ’the enterprise from em
~“e °"b' labor that could be
got lor such a purpose. Even better
opportunities exist in the South Sea Isl
ands, for the shell is equally good, la
bor is obtainable on the spot, and food
is produced spontaneously at the scene
of operations.
In favorable situations—as in the
branchos of clean-growing coral and
where there is little or no snnd to dis
turb the oysters—they often attain pro
digious size, not infrequently measuring
a yard in the diameter of their open
Valves. Sometimes a dozen of these
are linked together, and, if they con
tain pearls, are sure to have the largest
in size, shapeliest in form and purest in
lustre. The oysters which produce the
greatest number of ] earls, however, are
thick, stunted and deformed, which
seems to indicate that the formation of
pearls is due to some disease in the ani
mal. Strangely enough, however, the
liuost pearls are often found in the
healthiest oysters. In former times,
when tradition began first to be prac
ticed with the nati\es, many very large
pearls were secured which the savages
bail found and placed in their temples
—not from any notion of their value,
but because it was the r habit to place
the largest of everything, whether eo
coanut, crab, oyster, or what not before
their gods. The seductions of beads,
rum and red calico led to these things
being withdrawn from the place where
tliev had lain for generations and given
to the traders- foolish people, who ro
gar.led them ns having value. As for
pearl shell, the natives were more than
delighted to give half a ton of it for a
single tomahawk, and some groups, like
Paumotus, have exported as much ns a
thousand tons a year the last quarter of
a century, representing a value in Eu
rope of over $3,000,000. Although tb's
particular group does not now export
over two hundred tons of shell a year.
there are plenty of others possessing
vast deposits that have never been
touched, and should yield equally large
returns. If, also, any means could be
devised for excavating and sifting the
sand of old beds, great value of pearls
could doubtless be found, since the
number vh eh fall to tho bottom from
dying and decaying oysters largely ex
ceeds that wh ch has been brought to
the surface by the pearl fishers.
The Polynesians are most expert pearl
fishers and do not use any stone to sink
themselves, or any apparatus to c’ose
their nostrils, as do the Cingalese. They
can remain under water over three min
utes, and bring up shell from a dep h
of 1 '20 feet—although not liking the
undertaking, and needing to be paid
extra for it, The cost of raising shell
by this means is about §25 a ton.
Daring Bull Fighters.
The Spanish picador is a sad-looking
warrior, covered from head to foot, as it
were, with a defensive armor and pro
vided wi li a s ear and a wro ched old
horse. His only function is to get the
bull mad and to incite it to rush on tho
poor horse and mangle it with its horns
—an always cruel and ignoble specta
cle.
On the contrary, the Portuguese pica
dor disdains arms and armor. Ho is al
ways maguiH ently clad as a sixteenth
century knight and mounts a splendid,
full-blooded horse. Between himself
and the bull it is a constant struggle for
the favors of a crowd which is carried
up to tho highest limits of frantic en
thusiasm by brilliant exhibitions of
nimb oness and skill in which the steed
has nothing to fear, the horns of the
bull being garn’shed with olastio cush
ions to ueaden tho effects of vicious
thrusts from the infuria'ed brute.
It is a most impressive spectacle that
is offered by a black bull of the Atnen
tejo jumping madly in the arena and
bounding toward "the iirst living being
which happens to come within its sight.
The more rapid and furious its run the
more chances lias its adversary to elude
its wrath, for, when it seems 'the neai'er
to the red silk cloak which is shaken
before its blood-stained eyes, tho pica
dor throws himself and horse so rapidly
out of reach that the animal stops snort,
as it wero paralyzed by so sudden a dis
appo.ntment. Then it stamps the
ground and bellows with rage, and
looks for a fresh picador, whom it
charges with renewed energy, until it
fal s exhausted and is easily killed by its
iriumyiuaut enemies.
Among the daring feats in which the
Portugese picadors excel, a writer
quotes tiie pole vault, which is executed
with wonderful ease over the bull at the
very moment it is about to knock down
the picador, who is on foot. Another
still bolder act consists for the same
class of picadors in literally seizing the
bull by the horns and allowing it to
rush along with its enemy, who, head
downward, and his body and feet as
straight up as those of a gymnast on a
trapeze, receives the frantic applause of
thousands of enthusiastic admirers.
Appalling Heresy.
The following anecdote, about a fa
mous old character iu Whitley County,
Ky., is going the rounds. Joshua Bur
ned was a wag and a religious orator,
and possessed a prodigious memory.
“Unoe Josh, as he was generally
called, had an appointment to preach
one Sunday at an out-of-the wav log
school-house in his neighbourhood, and
two noted lights of a rival denomina
tion attended the me ting far the pur
pose of critioising the sormon. One was
named J ones, the other Warman. Unde
Josh, who, it appears, was aware of
their intentions, concluded to checkmate
them, aud ius'ead of pleaching a ser
mon he began repeating from memory,
and without any oomment whatever, one
of the Epistlee of St. Paul; for nearly
an hour chapter after chapter fell from
his lips, accompanied by gra\e and de
corous gesture and intonation. Brother
Jones, at the end of some thirty min
utee, arose with grave disapproval writ
ten all over his face, retired from the
house, and took a seat in the yard upon
a barkless and prostrate tree whidi was
used ss a horse-block. Brother War
man stood it some ten minutes longer,
when he, too, arose and joined Brother
Jones. ‘Well, Brother Warman, what
do you think of such a sermon If ’ said
Brother Jones. ' Think ? ’ said Brother
Warman, * why, I think that if the good
Lord will forgive me tliis time for listen
ing to such rotten doctrine, I will never
be guiity again.'"

The lightness of snowflakes is the re
sult of their surface being so great when
compared with their volume, and is ac
counted for in some degree by the large
quantity of air amid their frozen parti
cles. Snowflakes contain about nine
times as many volumes of air, entangled,
so to speak, among their crystals, as they
contain water. Very fine and lightly
deposited snow occupies about twenty
four times as much space as water, and is
from ten to twelve times lighter than an
equal bulk of that fluid.
