is known as an eye-stone, for the pur
pose of removing a mote, as he had fre
quently done before. For the benefit of
those of our readers who mar not know
.what an eye-stone is, we will explain.
It is a small, white, round shell, about
three sixteenths of an inch in diameter,
concave on one side, convex ou the other
and quite thin. It is taken from the
liead of a crab, one being found under
each eye of that crustaoean. In the
morning when Mr. Miller awoke he
could not find the atone. He mado a
careful and thorough search, but all in'
vain, and ho made up his mind that it
was gone for good. Recently he felt a
hard growth on the end of the little
finger of his right hand. He showed it
to some friends, who concluded it was a
wart and advised him to let it alone. Ho
did so until it began to l>e sore, and he

found out that some hard substauce was
under the skin, aud digging away ho
finally took out his long-lost eye-stone.
He examined it so oarefully that there
can be no mistake. He now recollects
that at one time ho experienced a con
siderable soreness in his wrist and sup-
nosed at that period the stone was press
ing in that direction. How this bit of
earbonite of lime ever made that long
journey without being lost or nl»Horl>oa
