The growth of the personal character
is largely molded by the gradual recog

They counsel not so much thut you

Infinite toil would not enable you to

A Ghastly Plaster Cast.
There is a curious object of interest in
the Algiers museum —a ghastly plaster
cast of the Christian martvr Geronimo,
writhing in the agony of death. Tradi
tion has for 300 years told the story of
the Moorish lad who, coming linder the
influence of Spanish missionary monks,
became a Christian and' a saint in all
but faith. He abjured «hc faith, it was
said, for a brief moment under the pres
sure of bitter persecution and slavery,
but returned to it with new zeal, and
proved it in the end by a heroic and
horrible death—that of being thrown
alive with his hands tied behind him,
nto a block of liquid concrete, which
was afterward built into a wall of one of
the outlying forts near the city. Such
was the tradition, singularly and liter
ally true in the minutest details, as was
proved in 1853, when part of the Fort
des Vingtquatre Heures was demolished,
and block of concrete found containing
the accurate impression of the writhing
body, face downward, and the hands
tied with cords behind the back.
Tlyi block itself was claimed by the
church, and deposited with great honor
in what used to be a Mohammedan
mosque, but is now the Roman Catholic
Cathedral of the town. Argonaut.
Young Matron (with theories on care
of children to nurse) —Jane?
Young Matron When the baby has
finished his bottle lay him in the cradle
on his right side. After eating, a child
should always lie on the rijrht side; that
relieves the pressure on the heart. Still
(reflectively) the liver is on the right
side —perhaps, after all, you had better
lay him on the left side. No, lam sure
the treatise on “Infant Digestion” said
the right side. On the whole, Jane, you
may lay the baby on his back until 1
have looked up the matter more thor
oughly. — Life.
Wedding and Engagement Rings.
“Why do we always wear wedding
and engagement rings on the fourth
finger!' 1 she asked as they were about to
leave the jeweller’s shop.
“The reason is,” said the smiling
jeweller, “that in olden times a nerve
was popularly supposed to run from the
fourth linger directly to the heart. It
used to be called the healing finger, and
physicians invariably used it when they
mixed their medicines. — London, Times
Cutting a Swell.
“Didn’t young Simpkins cut an awful
swell at the pirty la<t night?”
“Y , Bromley. S > did Miss Feath
"Misn Fentherfew? I didn’t notice.
How d 4 .-he cut a s.vell?”
“In so completely ignoring you. ”
If one upsets the salt he will shed many
tears; so if lays knife and fork across
each other;if ho your arc single,and are i
the first one to cut into the butter, you
must wait seven years to bo married; if
you sit at the sharp corner of the table,
I you will have a hump-backed wife. At
the change of the year dishes made of
i grainy substances are preferred ; it is a
i sign of money. So the first meal of a
1 newly-married couple should consist of
granulous food. It is considered a great
wrong to give away the end of a loaf of
bread, as it is to lay a loaf which has i
; been cut with the cut side upon tho table. |
If you lay it upon the bed it will rest, so
will your business; so in regard to tools
or implements of any kind.
If you would sleep soundly and peace- i
fully, the head of the bed must face the j
east; but on no account must the foot be j
opposite the door, for the person sleeping
in it will certainly be carried from
the house a corpse. If you wish to
sleep without dreaming, you must put I
one* shoe or boot under the bed and
let the other lie in the room where it
can be seen. If you Wish to awaken at
a certain hour, strike your big toe
against the footboard five or six times,or i
whatever the number of the hour may j
] be, and your wish will be fulfilled--you •
will awake at the precise moment. For ■
lazy pupils it is recommended to put the
book containing the lesson to be learned

unless a little of the straw (or other sub- I

I out and thrown into the fire.
I If, in dressing, you put on your stock

j luck; but you must leave it so, or the
I luck will change before night. On the
other hand, if a stocking is put on ■
wrong side out on the wedding day, it
portends a disastrous union. If you I
put a stitch in any article of clothing i
that is on your body you will sew your |
luck fast; and if there are any strings
to be tied or loosened while dressing, j

A Canino Wood Carrier.
Dr. Allen, of New Maysville, Ind.,
has a wonderful dog. It is a large black
and white Newfoundland. This faith
ful animal performs its daily work with
the utmost promptness and regularity.
This consists in keeping the kitchen
wood-box filled. At intervals through
the day it will report to the kitchen and
view the wood-box. Whenever the sup.
ply of fuel is getting low he proceeds to ■
the yard, grabs a stick in his mouth and
takes it to the kitchen, repeating the
operation till the box is filled again. It
keeps a special look out on wash days,
and at other times when an unusual
quantity of wood is being used, and
never lets the box get empty as long as
there is a supply in the yard. Globe
