There are in the past of all nations old sayinrs and tales and ancient legends, echoes of their . joys or sorrows,' their hopes and fears. These le gends and traditions character ize more perfectly than any thing else the genius of a na tion. The past, in its half Christian, half Pagan coloring -earning to us through the age9, forms a striking contrast with the present state of society. Up to the middle ot the nine teenth century Russian society and Russian writers took little notice ot the original poetry of the '"Skuslu" tales, one of the forms in which Russian folk love has survived. The -travel-ing bard o- stury teller is fast disappearing from Russian land and the tai and legends trans mitted from m iuth to mouth for many ct-n' ur cs have become, a part of wriifn literature and still are a ilelight to the Rus sian children. This little vol ume has been retold with; the hope that the young American will also find pleasure in glanc ing into the magic world of the old Salvic nation. v ESKIMO STORIES By Mary K. Smith.

"So far as affecting the priest hood iu general is concerned, there is not the least likelihood of a chauge," said the arch bishop, "but I do believe the time will come when converts from the Auglican. church will be admitted, though married, at least as visiting pas'tors. "When the United Greek church came into the Catholic church the members were per mitted to return to the practice of marriage of priests in their own communities.

' m We, rejoiqe greatly over the victoiies of the last year. The record of current events shows at the beginning of 1907 for the first time in history, the wLole world is in revolt against the tyranny of the drink habit and the drink traffic.

The Muffler Was Frozen Dp. Anyone who has struggled to get a gasoline engine start ed when everything was at a stand still waiting for it to move will appreciate the fol lowing from Bailey of the Britt Tribuoe: The Tribune is going through the moulting period with a gasolioe engine to en. liven things. . It is one of the best engines made and cannot g) wrong if ordinary intelli gence is used, io the directions say, and this is no doubt tiue, but thirteen men, eleven boys and niue engineers were fix n it for six hours and at eleven o'clock a. m., it would run al right if some one turned the wheel.

This madt? everything look alright. The engine should have said "kapeet" "kapeet"' right along, but it merely said pr.r-r and that was all.
