"Is it iMiaalble," Maid Tolstoi to him self, ‘‘that people are forbidden to auk charity, In Christ's name—in a Chris tian land?" "Brother," lie said to the police, "can yon read?" "Yea," said the officer politely. "Have yon rend the Hlble?” "Yes." "And do you remember Christ’# orders to feed the hungry?" And he •dted the words. The policeman was evidently troubled. He turned to his questioner and asked; "And you, sir—you can read?" "Yes, brother." "Anti have you read the police regu lations?" "Yes, brother."

This work is Intruwtwd to high ly skilled artisans, who do» the work under ttudr direction, and ffce sculp tors superintend all the finishing touches aud even occasionally do some of the rutting on the face aud bands. The actual cutting of the stone Is a most difficult process and reipilres great expert skill. In case a full sized model Is made the sculptor sends It to a professional marble cutter, who roughly shapes the block. The general shape Is often given to the block lw»- fore It leaves the marble yard to save the extra freight. The rough carving Is then done by the marble cutter, who mo Hha|s>s the block u» to give It the general outline of the figure to be re- prodtieed. He drill* * series of holes lu the block, the depth 1 ofeach of which corresponds to an external polut of tho statue supposed to- (>• Inelostsl in the stone. After a sufficient number of these holes have l>eetv made In the stone lie removes the entire perforated portion, and what remains gives the broad lines of the statue; Halit In fllnoA.

"In Santiago, tho Chilean capital, where I have Itcen residing for some years, It Is common to hoc people put on their overcoats when they enter-a house and take them olT upon going Into the street," said a visitor to the capital. "Tho cause of this Is that the at mosphere on the outside Is wanner than within the residences. The Chileans do not hoat their domiciles to any extent, and they are construct ed of sin'll thick walls that they are a good deal on the'order of refrigera tors." Washington Post. Ilorara In Hattie.

Hut If, on the other hand, the rider Is wounded and falls to the ground, the faithful animal remains beside him, un mindful of danger, neighing until assistance is brought. The Head of More. When the wine and witty Sir Thom as More was boheadi'd his head was stuck on a pole on London bridge, where It was exposed for fourteen days, much to the grief of his datigh ter, Margaret ltoper, who resolved to secure it. “One day," says Aubrey, "as she was passing under tin* bridge, look ing at her father’s head, she exclaim ed: ‘That head has lain many a time In my lap. Would to Hod It would fall Into my lap as l pass under!' Stic had her wish, and It did fad Into*her lap.” Probably she had bribed one of the keepers of the bridge to throw It over just as the boat approached, and the exclamation was intended to avert, the suspicion of the boatmen. At nil events, she got possession of it and preserved It with great care lira leaden casket until her death, and It is now Inclosed in a niche In the wall of her tomb in St iMiiistau's church, Canter bury.
