There Is a quaint old parish church la riurlen, Brittany, built lu the early part of the llfteenth century and bar fing, with many other primitive ar rangements, the bell rope from the bel fry hanging down from the roof of the uuvo and dangling just lu front of the pulpit, so that the process of bell ring lug Is performed In full view of the ongregation. But what was more pe culiar was the projection at right an gles from one of the walls (also near the pulpit) of a sculptured hand and arm of full size as though held out from the shoulder by somebody built into the solid fabric of the wall Itself, and the hand opened and, palm upward and fin gers extended, had a suggestion of ap pcnl and solicitation which naturally provoked curiosity. As there was no Inscription or any thing to bint at the nature of the story that evidently lay behind the sculp tured limb, I made inquiry of a charm ing old lady who was decorating the altar with flowers in view of the next day's high mus, and she told me thai many years ago. In the faroff past, there was n wicked villager who went indeed to mass, but was far from de vout, and on one occasion he so far for got himself in the service on a hot sum mer's day as to hold out his hand through the open door or window to aa equally undevout friend outside for a pinch of snuff. The pinch was duly given, but St Peter, the patron saint of the church, was so scandalized by so terrible a want of reverence that ho straightway, paralyzed the arm of the offending snuff taker, who thereupon took to hU bed and died, hut not before he bad ad mitted the Justice of his punishment and had left directions In his will for setting up In the church of the marble reminder of his sin In order that all fit ture villagers In riurlen might be warn ed against the terrible enormity of al lowing tiny distraction to interrupt the devout hearing of the puiss. It is a curious story and reminds one tiint there has been an Infancy in religion as well as in most other of the great motive powers of existence. Glasgow Herald. GEMS OF THOUGHT.
