wero born to them, for In thoso days it
had not beebmo tuifoshloiiublo to have fam

Thoso children had to bo educated In a

Of cotirso It was not nlono tho bous of

Tho prevailing Ignoranco and supersti

regarded by most persons with greater
tverslon than certain Insects and reptiles.
Tho folk lore of theso branches of that
kingdom In thoroforo a very cxtenslvo
duo. It frequently assigns to tho min
utest mombors of tlio Insect trlbo connld
ernblo power for good or aril, and jopu.
lar tradition oven anticipated cclontlflo
discovery In tho matter of Insect Intelli
gence Popular superstition has concerned
Itself much about that busy llttlo Insect,
tho bee A Welsh tradition says bees
cumo from paradise, leaving tho garden
when man fell, but with Cod's blessing,
so thnt wax la necessary In tho celobra
tlon of tho mass. Tho ancients gener
ally Einlntnlncd that there was a closo
connection between bees nnd tho soul.
Porphyry speaks of "thoso souls which
tho nnclcnts called been."
Thcro Is n Hindoo Btiporstltlon that tho
Hokshas or demons keep their souls In
tho bodies of bees. Many persons accord
unusual Intelligence to bees. Thoy nro
Bald lu parts of England and Franco to
rovcro tho consecrated wafer. Thoy nro
nlso said to sing a Christmas hymn, bo
ginning nt midnight. Thoy aro said novcr
to thrlvo In n quarreleomo family, nor
will thoy slay with you If you quarrel
about them or In their presence It Is n
custom In many parts of England and tho
continent to niinounco to the -bees n death
lu tlio family, especially that of tho mas
ter. It. Is Bald In many parts of England
nnd Germany that If n cwarra of bees Bet
tlo on tho dead branch of n llvo trco a
death will occur lu tho family within a
year. Stolen bees nro Bald In Hollaud
novcr to thrive In somo places In Eng
land It Is thought unlucky to sell them.
Thoy ore given nwny for another gift.
Flics aro sometimes regarded nn fur
nishing prognostications of tho weather,
nnd oven of other ovents. Wllsford, nn
old naturalist, who writes much of popu
lar Import, says: "If thoy are busier or
blinder than ordinary, snort lug In tho
mill or showing themselves in warm
places, It may bo taken as a sign of hail,
cold showers of rain or wot weather."
Fleas nro not too small to enter Into
popular lore An nbuiidmico of them In
dicates rain, hero nnd in England. Their
eager biting nlso prognosticates wet wea
ther. Theso tormenting insects nro not
without their bcuollts, nccordlng to tho
English fishermen, for thoy consider that
an nbundanco of them indicates good
hauls of fish.
Gnats aro regarded by many as accurate
weather Indicators. Fair weather 13 said
to bo coming when thoy fly about In
clouds In tin sun'ii beams; heat follows
unusual frlskincss, and rain U indicated
by their seeking tho nhado and biting
fiercely. An nbundanco of theso Insects
In tho spring foretells a warm autumn.
Slnco the dnys of Solomon tho nut has
enjoyed qulto a reputation na a worker.
Mohammedans recognize Its Industry, nnd
accord It u plnco among tho ten animals
that alouo enter Paradise Without men
tlonlng I1I3 authority, Emerson Bays, In
"Nnturo," that thoy novcr elcop. Anto'
eggs wero of old an nntldoto for love It
Is said that thoy closo their holes lu tho
ground on tho approach of n otorm. If
thoy aro unusually frisky wot weather Is
at hand. Tho migration of ants from low
ground is said to lndlcato heavy rains, and
stormy weather Is Imminent when thoy
travel In Hues, fair weather coming when
thoy scatter abroad.
Superstition has been very busy with
that common household Insect, tho cricket.
Its lively and cheerful chirp has caucod It
to bo generally vlowcd with favor. It U
usually regarded 03 a good 01r.cn In
England and Scotland, lu Hull it la un
lucky to kill them, and In Lancashire, ii
is said, thoy cut holes lu tho worsted
stockings of thoso members of a family
that kill them. In Shakespeare's tlmo this
notion that tho presenco of tho cricket
was a good omen, Indicating cheerfulness
and plenty, waa a prevalent ono. ,
Tho llttlo insect commonly known as
tho lady bird or lady bug has been tho ob-
Iect or many superstitious observances,
ta naino Indicates Us sacred character, it
being ovcrywhoro tho Virgin's bird, tho
lady cow, tho lady fly, tlio lady's llttlo
bca3t, Mary's bird, God'n calf, ete Young
f;!rls, on finding ono, try to dlvluo their
ovcra by it. Tlio flight of tho Insect In
dicates tho direction In which tho lover
Is to bo sought. German peasants also
try to dlvlno from its flight how they will
faro In tho noxt world. If, on being ap-
Ecalcd to. It flics upward, thoy will go to
caven; if downward, to hell, or if hori
zontally, then purgatory awaits tho ques
tioner. Tho Insect known as "granddaddy long
logs" Is thought in this country to pos
sess somo mysterious knowledge Chil
dren, on bcclng it, ask It, "Granddaddy
long legs, whero's my cow?" bollovlng tliat
It will lndlcato tho proper direction by
ralslncr ono of Its loirs.
Spider superstitions aro also abundant.
They should not bo killed. Spaniards, In
tho Sixteenth century, bcllovcd that
Bpldcrs indicated gold, whero they woro
found in nbundanco. in Germany, it is
uald to lndlcato good luck to havo a spider
spring his wob downwards toward you,
but bad luck when ho rises toward you.
Thcro aro said to bo no spiders lu Ireland,
nor will spiders spin their wob in nn Irish
oak, nor on a cedar roof. F. 8. Bassott in

CALIFORNIA'S
CoU Robert G. Inccrtoir Idea.
Mcst peoplo regard thoso who vlolato
tho law with hatred. Thoy do not tako
into consideration tho circumstances.
They do not bellovo that man b poroetu
nlly tctcd upon. Thoy throw out of con
sideration tho effect of poverty, of neces
sity, and, tbovo all, of opportunity. For
theso reasons thoy regard criminals with
fccllug3 of rovengo. They wish to bco
them punished. They want them Impris
oned or hanged. Thoy do not think tho
law has been vindicated unless somebody
has been outraged. I look at theso th!ngj
from an entirely different point of view.
I regard theso peoplo who aro In tho
clutches of tho law uot only as unfortu
nates, but, for tho most part, as victims.
You may call thorn victims of nature, or
of nations, or of governments; Itmakes no
dlfferonco, thoy aro victims. Undor tho
eamo circumstances tho very persons who
punish them would bo punished. But
whothcr the criminal is a victim or not,
the honest man, tho Industrious man, has
tho right to defend tho product of his
labor. Ho who sown ana plows should
be allowed to reap, and ho who endeavors
to tako from him his harvest is what wo
coll a criminals and it is tho busluess of
cocloty to protect tho honest from the dis
honest. New York World Interview.
