The Wife of the Cat.
Nasr-ed-din. the Persian shah, was
an intensely superstitions man and l>e
lleved that his luck lay in his beauti
ful black Persian cat, which was a re
markably handsome cat in a land
where cats are nearly all handsome.
The shah never allowed the black cat
to be away from him. and it was given
In charge of one of his wives. Amin
Agdas, who was styled "the wife of
When the shah went on hie long
shooting expeditions, the Persian cat
was put into a decorated basket and
carried by a special attendant directly
behind his master. Unluckily one day
an accident occurred, and the black
cat came to an untimely end. The
shah was in despair at the loss of his
luck bringer, but the clever "wife of
the cat" exerted her influence and
brought her nephew under the shah's
notice. The lad was sharp enough to
make the most of an accident (planned
by his aunt) and save the shah's life,
and the monarch was so pleased that
he gave the boy the name of "the
cherished of the sovereign" and in
stalled the new luck bringer.
On the west coast of Ireland, near
the mouth of the river Shannon, are
several large sea caves which open
Into each other. The visitor seems to
be floating through a submarine palace
of many halls whose roofs are either
as green as grass in the sun or blood
red. But the visitor needs a good
guide and a good boatman, for the sea
is insidious and the labyrinth of caves
intricate. On one occasion, writes Au
brey de Vere in his "Recollections,"
soon after a party had entered the
boatman suddenly shouted. "Bend
down your heads for your lives!"
No one saw any danger, but the
boatman felt the placid water insensi
bly rising and knew that the tide had
turned. At last the visitors knew this,
too* for it was not until the boat had
ascended within a few Inches of the
roof that it !>egan to descend.
"Pull your best!" exclaimed'the man
at the helm. "If the second wave
reaches us, we are lost!" But before
the second wave reached the cave the
boat had issued from Its mouth.
"To Eat Crow."
Although the use of the expression
"to eat crow" In a metaphorical sense,
meaning to eat one's words, may well
have dated from the time of Noah,
when the bird was first looked upon
as unclean and not fit to serve ns fowl
for man. It seems to have arisen from
the old tale of the officer and the pri
A soldier, having shot a tame crow
belonging to oue of his officers, was
discovered by the owner with the bird
in his hand. Seizing the private's gun,
the officer commanded him to eat the
bird as a punishment. With the fire
arm pointed at his bead, the soldier
fell to, but no sooner had the officer
laid aside the gun than the culprit
grasped It and compelled his superior
to join in the distasteful banquet.
The private was court martialed the
next day, and when be was asked by
the examiners what had occurred he
replied, "Nothing, except that Captain
Blank and I dined together."—Wash

The citizen recently purchased a rare
edition of Montaigne's essays. One
evening at dinner the costly volume
was passed from hand to band, and
for a time the owner lost sight of it.
When, however, it did finally come
back to him he was astonished to find
on the fly leaf this inscription:

"Don't buy that pig." said the older
"Why not?" asked the younger man.
"Look at his tail," was the reply.
''See how loose it hangs, like the tall

mal is in bad health.
"You can read a pig's coudition by
Its tail. The tighter it Is curled the
fitter is the pig. And when the tall
hangs straight, as this one does, the
pig ought to take to his bed and send
for the veterinary." — New Orleans
