The butcher paid it to a farmer for a calf, and the farmer paid it to a merchant, who in turn paid it to a washer woman, and she owing the banker a note of ten dollars went to the bank and paid the note. The banker recognized the bill as the one he had found and up to that time bad paid $50 of debt. On careful investigation he found that the bill was counterfeit. What had been lost by the trans action aod by whom ? NOT FREE OF SUPERSTITION. We, of Modern Timet. Cliinfl Fondly - to Absurd Beliefs. The story of the prima donna who would not sins until her mascot, the stag's head, was Installed over her chimney piece Is a type of modern superstition. We are Quite as cred ulous this . twentieth, century as our forefathers of medieval times. What woman does not believe one of her gowns to b lucky and the other unlucky? How many refuse to don opals, while others carry a fetich In the shape of a crooked sixpence or rusty nail, a lucky shamrock, or a hideous little silver pis about them? Everywhere superstition meets one.

With all her wonderful fruits, Cal ifornia lacks a cranberry worthy of the name. ' A New England tourist ordered cranberry sauce with his turkey one Thanksgiving day at a hotel in Pasadena. An odd-looking and odd-tasting dish of stewed fruit was Brought to him. "What do you call this?" he asked the waitress, a girl from the New Hampshire mountains. "Cranberry sauce, sir," she an swered, with a faint smile of sympathy for his evident distaste. "Cranberry sauce!" he echoed indig naatly.
