COL The citizens relapsed, it is true, but they were again converted, and then, in sober earnest, put away their old gods, keep ing only a few of the more favorite su perstitions. Some of these remain still with us. They were so thoronghly con verted that the city of London became a veritable mother of saints. There was the venerable Erkenwald saint and bishop he who built Bishops gate on the site of the old Roman gate; there was St. Ethelbnrga, the wife of Sebert, the first Christian king her church still stands, close beside the site of the old gate; there wa3 St. Osyth queen and martyr the mother of King Off a her name ako sur vivas in Size, or St. Osyth's lane, but the church of St. Osyth was redothcated to St. Ben'et Sherehog Benedict Skin-the-Pig you may see the little old churchyard still, black and grimy, surrounded on three sides by tall houf.es. English piety loved to dedicate churches to English saints more likely these than Italian or Trench to look after the national interests. Thus there were in London churches dedicated to St. Dunstan, St. S.vithin, St. Botolph (whoso affection for the citizens was so well known that it was recognized by four churches), St. Edmund the ilartyr, and later on, when the Danes got their turn, churches to St. Olaf and St. Mag nus. The Englishman, thus converted, was received into the company of civilized nations. Scholars came across the Chan nel to teach him Latin, monks came to teach him the life of self sacrifice, obedi ence, submission and abstinence. The monastery reared its humble walls every where the first foundation of the first Bishop of London was a monastery. In time of war the monasteries were spared. Therefore the people settled around them and enjoyed their protection. The mon astery towns grew rapidly and prospered. New arts were introduced and taught by the monks; new ideas sprang up among the peorile; new wants were created. Moreover, intercourse began with other nations; the ecclesiastic who journej'e to Home took with him a goodly troop of priests, monks and laymen; they saw strange lands and observed strange cus toms. Walter Besant in Harper's. Tin- Orange Industry in Paraguay. The orange tree is generally under stood to have been introduced into Para guay by the Jesuits and the seeds dis tributed by the birds. However this may be, the orange has spread all over the country, from the river banks to the tops of the hills, and from the cottages even to the deepest solitudes of the vir gin forest. Paraguay is the land of orange trees more truly than the coun try of Mignon. And what oranges! Juicy, perfumed and of a delicacy that Spain and Italy have never attained. The chief industry consists in the ex portation of the fruit. The great orange season is from May to August, when the ports of the. Para guay river, from Humaita to Asuncion, dispatch enormous quantities by steam ers and schooners. Villeta, San Lorenzo and San Antonio are the principal ports, and there best may be seen the pictur esque processions of laughing and screaming girls and women, who carry basket after basket of fruit on their heads from the shore to the ship, like a swarm of busy ants. Up to the present no industrial use litis been made of the orange. Some sixty millions are ex ported annually, the same quantity is consumed by the natives, and perhaps treble that quantity is devoured by monkey's and birds, or left to rot on the ground Theodore Child in Harper's. AVheie Horse Meat Soup Is Popular. Every day, at early morning, noon and evening, in Paris, you will see poor people gathering at certain shabby cook shops in the quarters of Belleville, Mont martre, the Batignolles and others of the sections outside the boulevards, where poverty houses are thickest, each armed with a tin pail, a pitcher or something else calculated to cany liquid. These receptacles are duly filled with thin but savory broth, I tdeled from huge, steaming caldrons, and which costs only a cent or two a quart. I have drunk this bouillon and found it nourishing and good. It is made of the bones and scraps of horse meat after the choicer pieces are sold to the cheap restaurants, and the very essence and marrow of the meat are in it, for the boiling is kept up until the bones are fairly honeycombed and the meat reduced to shreds like bits of twine. This broth provides the principal ani mal nourishment for the average laborer in the gay city. He adds to it a few vegetables, thickens it with bread, and it having, as the cook book might say, been 4 "seasoned to taste," makes a palat able and hearty meal. Alfred Trumble in New York Epoch. Manuscripts Ahead. Some of the larger magazines keep MSS. for years unpublished, their stock ou hand is so great. This is not so hard upon the young author when they pay upon acceptance, but sometimes it in flicts great hardship upon the struggling author when he has to wait for his pay until his srory is published. One of the editorial staff of The Youth's Com panion told me not long since that they h?d over 100,000 worth of MSS. in their safe, all accepted and paid for, and it was ;i question if some of it could ever be published.

A Desperate TTay to Raise Money. "About the most desperate thing I ever heard of in the way of money raising came to my professional notice some years ago," said a detective to me. "Complaint wa3made at the office that a diamond stud, valued at over a thou sand dollars, had been stolen from a cer tain up town house. I was detailed on the case, and after a few hours found the stone, which had been pawned for $800. "When stolen property is found at a pawnbroker's the amount advanced on it is returned to him, either by the owner or the thief, if his resources will allow of such a thing. The law protects the broker, and it is proper that it should, but the capture and conviction of the thief i3 a necessary factor in such cases. "This time no trace of the burglar could be found. "The owners proved property and the brilliant was returned to them. It rep resented at this stage a clear gain for the rascal and a dead los3 for the pawn broker. "It was not long before we had our man, though, and then there was prompt conviction, a sentence of one year in the Elmira reformatory and a vain search for tirJ owners of the property. "The matter dropped from my mind in the rush of other business, until one day I learned the secret of the whole opera tion. The theft had been the deed of the son of the 'robbed' family. They were sorely in need of money, and had resort ed to this way of getting it. When called on to reimburse the luckless pawnbroker they were apparently penniless. The thief had then gone free, and all the par ties interested had dropped from sight. "That fellow was paid, or rather paid fcimself , at the rate of three dollars per day during his stay in Elmira." New Yrork Herald. The Wills of Noah and Jacob. The origin of testaments is lost in ob scurity, but doubtless they followed soon after the first institution of private prop erty. Eusebius says that Noah made a will soon after the flood wherein he dis posed of the whole world. He was cer tainly possessed of a considerable landed estate, but Eusebius' story of the testa ment in writing and witnessed under his seal needs confirmation. In the forty-eighth chapter of Genesis, however, we do find mention of a will, wherein Jacob bequeathed to his son Jo seph twice as much as to his other chil dren. This was not a testament in writ ing, but a verbal or "nuncupative'' testa ment, declared by the testator "in ex tremis" before witnesses, and depending upon oral testimony. Such "nuncupative" testaments were at one time recognized in English law, but in the eighteenth century Black stone says they were fallen into disuse, and hardly ever heard of. All the Year Round. How Leap Year Started. Hampson, in his "Medii CEVI. Kalan darium," quotes the following quaint tradition from an old Saxon treatise: "Some assert that the bissextus or leap day conies through this, -that Joshua prayed to God that the sun might stand still for one day's length, that he might sweep the heathen from the land that God had granted him and his followers. It is true that the sun did stand still for one day's length over the city of Gebaon, but the day went forward in the same manner as other days. And the. bissex tus is not through that, as some do think." In France and some parts of Spain and "Portugal there exists a tra dition known as "the ghost of leap year." Believers in this say that a mar vellous monster annually appears on leap day and disarranges human affairs for the remainder of the year. St. Louis Republic. A Tanner's Strange Infatuation. The incident in reference to the wheel wrright's infatuation for Miss Gabrielle Greeley, even after she decided to marry, led to the publication of a similar' story in Halifax, N. S. When Professor Schurman was dean of the Dalhousie college a Pictou county tanner conceived the idea that Mrs. Schurman was in lova with him, and would desert her hus band to become his wife. When Dr. Schurman became dean of Cornell uni versity the tanner visited New York state every few months to fondly gaze upon the lady on the street or in her pew. The tanner even went to the fa ther of the lady, George Munro, the New York publisher, and declared his conviction that his passion was recipro cated, and asked him to interfere in his behalf. Cor. Chicago Tribune. No Tyro at the Reins. I saw a big three horse dray in Four teenth street the other day, the driver of which I admired very much. He was backing the truck down, and before him was the trio of powerful, gray, half -bred Percherons. He used his reins merely to give the direction of the desired swing to his horses, and for this a touch sufficed. Then he would speak to them, and they would move as he wished, most intelligently. When they backed the reins lay idle and loose, a mere "Come back here!" being sufficient! Any man who has the sense to manage horses in this fashion is a man worth knowing. New York Telegram. Metaphysics. Oliver Wendell Holmes was a class mate of Dr. Clarke at Harvard, and ac cording to the reminiscences of the lat ter, the "Autocrat of the Breakfast Ta ble" was as witty then as now. One day the two were talking of metaphysics, when the bright tongued little great man exclaimed: "Til tell you, James, what I think metaphysics is like. It is like a man splitting a log. When it is done he has two more to split!" San Francisco Argonaut. A Question of Form. Mrs. Waynppe Your enthusiasm, my young" friend, marks the vulgarian.
