A Paris dispatch related recently that a pig fled from the Halles and ran down the Rue de Rivoli, upsetting two gendarmes. She then went to a department store, was carried up one escalator, down another and found refuge in the dress-goods department in the basement, where she sank into a calm slumber. This is well enough in its way and for a European pig. but it has too many signs of accident. It may have amused the Parisians to hear about this. Perhaps It may have I deepened their conviction that the ville lumlere 18 the mother of novel ties. But if so, they sadly mistake. The New Hampshire Gazette of Janu ary 6. 1775. contains the following ad vertisement: "A Pig Came to the House of Mark Loud in Portsmouth about a fortnight ago-the Owner may have him again by applying to the said Loud." The conscientious Loud. g though feeling the greatest respect a and friendship for the pig that had t made him a fortnight's visit, evidently felt that he ought to go home. Noth r ing Is said about reward; that is left to the delicacy of the pig's owner and it must have been ap exceptionally in telligent pig, even for New England, to have left this plensant impression on Mr. Loud. There is no evidence that any dispatch was sent to the French or English press about the incident, S although it is far more Interesting s than that of the Paris pig that upset the gendarmes.--J. ii.

Ie The Jewish festival of Passover com memorates the release of the Hebrews a from Egyptian bondage. The festival opens with a household ceremony, called the Seder, at which a collation is served and various religous rites performed, including a recital of the to events of the Exodus, from a special ritual service compiled for this occa Il, sion. Originally Passover was an agricul i tural feast. At a later period it be at came dissociated in part from its prim a is tive nature and came to refer direct ly to t1 e escape from Egypt, which in vested the festival with the new and d n highly significant spiritual message of sw liberty for all mankind. n In the synagogue the note of spring Sis reflected in assigned scriptural im readicg wherein the worshiper is re ys minded that the winter is over. This re is In harmony with the purpose of the n- Passover, which is to recall to mind ife the many miracles which were wrought )er in behalf of the House of Jacob by the no never-slumbering guardian and keeper )w, of Israel. Israel is bidden, through the annual message of Passover, to r. work for the eventual triumph of hu manity over the tyranny of Injustice re- and inlquity.--Detroit News. out Sing Deeds of Light Tenders.

Emmerson Tennent states that ta on one occasion he saw hundreds of climbing fish crawling up the bank of ml a driedup pool, diverging in every di rection on reaching the top to a dis tance of 50 yards and still traveling hi onward. The supposition is that they travel by night or before suerise. One a peculiarity is the large size of the a vertebral column, quite out of propo r-i tion to the rest of the body. In ml grating they keep their gills expanded and moistened by a curious vessel h above the gills that holds water. When the fish leaves the water it a carries with it enough water to moisten its gills as often as neces sary to sustain life. The eggs float loosely at the surface of the water and hatch in two or three days. The color of this fish is a light brassy olive, with eyes of orange, its length is up a to seven inches. Scott Original "Great Unknown." The expression. "The Great Un h known," is applied in a hundred di t ferent ways-in politics, in financial g operations, in criminal Investigations, t in fact, every time there is doubt d about the identity of something or somebody. The original "Great Un known" was Sir Walter Scott. He had published his "Waverly Novels" anonymously. All literary England i was wondering about the author, but Scott and his friends kept the secret ' I because he was a clerk of sessions` 'and his superiors considered novel writing beneath the dignity of such a high oicial. "Serious" works he wrote under his own name, but for years all the fame and success due the author of the immortal Waverly books went to the "Great Unknown." The veil was only lifted after every. body had guessed the truth. Sure Was Hasy. A Richmond banker was approached by a negro minister whose father had served his family in slave days.
