THE MEASURE OP MAN'S DAYS. When the world was created, and all creturei assembled to have their lifetime appointed, the ass first ad vanced and asked how long he would have to live. "Thirty years," replied Nature; "Will that be agreeable to thee?" 'Alas,'" answered the ass, "it is a long while ! Remember what a weary existence will be mine; from morning to night I shall have to bear heavy burdens, dragging corn sacks to the mill that others may eat bread, while I shall have no encouragement nor be refreshed by anything but blows and kicks. Give me a portion of that time, I pray." Nature was moved with compassion and presented but eighteen years. The ass went away comforted, and the dog came forward. . "How long dost thou require to live?" asked Nature. Thirty years was too long for the ass, but wilt thou be contented with them?" "Is it thy will that I should?" re plied the dog. "Think how much I shall have to run about; my feet will not last so long a time, and when I shall have lost my voice for barking and my teeth for biting what else shall I be fit for but to lie in a corner and growl?" Nature thought he was right, and gave him twelve years. The ape then appeared. "Thou shalt doubtless, willingly, have the thirty years," said Nature; "thou wilt not have to labor as the ass and dog. Life will be pleasant to thee." "Ah, no!" cried he, "so it may seem to others, but it will not be. Should puddings ever rain down I shall have no spoon. I shall play merry tricks, and excite laughter by my grimaces, and then be rewarded with a sour ap ple. How often a sorrow lies concealed behind a jest! I shall not be able to endure for thirty years." Nature was gracious, and he receiv ed but ten. At last came man, healthy and strong, and asked the measure of his days. "Will thirty years content thee?" "How short a time!" exclaimed man. "When I shall have built my house, and kindled a fire on my hearth; when the trees I have planted are about to bloom and bear fruit, when life will seem to be most desirable, I shall die. Oh, Nature, grant me a longer per iod!" "Thou shalt have the eighteen years of the ass besides." "That is not enough," replied man. "Take likewise the twelve years of the dog." "It is not yet sufficient," reiterated man "give me more." "I give then, the ten years of the ape; in vain wilt thou claim more." Man departed dissatisfied. Thus man lives seventy years. The first 30 are his human years, and pass swiftly by. He is then healthy and happy he labors cheerfully and rejoices In his existence. The eighteen years of the ass come next, and burden upon burden is heaped upon him; he car ries the corn that is to feed others; blows and kicks are the wages of his faithful service. The twelve years of the dog follow, and he loses his teeth and lies in a corner and growls. When those are gone, the ape's ten years form the conclusion. Then man, weak and ailly becomes the sport of chil dren. Exchange. THE JEWISH MONITOR Nia, KmAJ!m BETWEEN THE establishment of better relation, be- peoples.

Both the Jewish and Greek press are trying their utmost to stimulate cord ial feelings between the two peoples. The start in this movement was made by the Grand Rabbi Bejarana of Con stantinople. In an interview granted Greek reporters, the spiritual head of the Ottoman Jews declared that friendly relations must be established between the Greeks and Jews. To this declaration the semi-official "Neolo gos" replied that the Greeks favor the The people who advertise in the MONITOR help to support the paper.
