Komo writers IM-Iicvc that a superstitious
iilea prevailing union;; tho hili aud tlio low
of e.irly times, which nttribuLed to tlu liell
the jMiwi-r to disjK-1 evil rpirits, was the primo
cause of its intriMliielioii, tho idea loiii that
the rin'ni would so terrify tlio disembodied
spirit of 11:1 evil do.-r that ho would permit
the followers of the lowly Jesus to send fort
llieir prai:-es in peaco.
IX T;ili MIDDLE AGES.
We know that there is good reason for be
lief in tlio evil spirit theory. As Into ns tlio
iM-innin;; of the Eighteenth century it is an
tii.-.lorical fact that the passing ln.ll was al
ways run dr.riiis tho time a coiiiniuiiicant
wasdyi:i;j; to U-rril'y evil siiirits and &ve the
spirit of t ::o departin;; Christian an ample
start in the heavenly race, otherwise it was
iu lan:;er of beiit; overtaken and carrieil to
the realms below by infernal emissaries do
tailed by the devil for that purpose.
Sir. Douee, the antiquarian, says that ho
believes that the passi.-ii; bell was originally
intended to drive away any demon that
niisht seel; to take possession of tho soul of
llio ilocca.-vil or tlio one iiying. On this ac
count it was not infrequently called tho
soul bell. IIo also adds that ho believes an
cient en;raviii;;s of dyina; diiiitnries, in
whoso room both the priests and tho devils
have assembled, the former to administer ex
treme unction and tho latter to take tho soul
of the unlucky wiht as soon as it leaves the
body, warrant this inference.
If the dying person was ono of rank or
wealth, tho largest bell in the innnediato
vicinity was tolled during his or her time of
passing from Ufa But, on the contrary,
bhould tho dying ono bo poor, only small
hand bells were rung. Occasionally, how
ever, tho din was augmented by pounding au
unearthly uoiso on tinware from tho kitch
en, tho idea being to scare tho devils and
goblins as far away as possible, by which
the poor soul would Ret that much tho lcttcr
start of its tormentors. Tho louder the noise
tho farther off it could bo heard, thu3 serv
ing a double purpose, that of scaring tho dev
ils out of sight and st curiug for tho dying a
greater number of prayers, as each ono who
lu-ard the 1101.-13 was supposed to praj- for tho
departing spirit. Excuse the travesty, but
does not the plan remind you, gentlo reader,
of the 0:10 now i;u;d by an apiarist in settling
In tho seventh year of Queen Elizabeth's
reign, in tho "Advertisement for duo order,
etc.," may bo found the following: "Item,
that when a Christian bodie is in passing,
that tho bell bo tolled, and that tho curate be
speciallio called for to comforte yo sicko ier
sori; rnd after tho time of his or her passing
to ring no lamo iiht cue short peale, aud an
other short peala after tho buriail.'
AFTER THC UEFOUllATIO?:.
After tho Reformation, when people had
become more enlightened, it was with great
difficulty thac th-i old co-jtom of ringing the
passing bell was adhered' to. Tho bolder of
tho people rebelled against tho idea of ring
ing a bell to frighten away evil spirits in
whoso eristetice they did not believe. First,
the dissenters wero told that the bell was
rung to .;( .'itiiin all of those in hearing a
desire to pray for me di.-utir;T soul, bat this
did not have tho desired effect. Gradually
tbu people began to see that it was a relic of
superstit!oiirand that it aroused in t'ao dying
undue ansisty. After a timo it was discon
tinued, as mentioned above, Befora t ho pars
ing tied bo.d become entirely extinct, how
ever, a new custom of tolling tho bell after
the death of the person, and before his burial,
Lad been engrafted into tho minds of tho peo
plo by tho ciergy, tho peoplo being informed
that it was dona "in honor of tho deceased."
That this is lU in tlio present ago no
ono will doubt for on instiiut, but tLat is was
tuo original heir of the old devil ebasiag pass
in" bell of the middle ages is equally apparent.
Jacobs, in his "Travels," says: Akin to tho
superstitious reverence onco attached to bells
in I.u:"!'"l may bo mcntioueu tuo oracicn in
Spain, whieu souiiJ; nt sunset, when every
one. as if bv magio, 6eem5 fixed in Lia place,
uncovers his head and repeats, or is supposed
to repeat, a mental nraver for a few minutes.
In tolling a death tao custom or making a
numerieu! d;-s "action m the taps or the clap
per or tongue, hi order 10 forrithoso within
i.n n-c or Mm n-ro of the Dorson deceased or
dvin. has also been, traced to remote times.
Dur;,'J. a Spaniard, who lived and wrote in
th',: 'Va-r'f!. iwnturv. savs: "Bells must be
tolled twice tor woir.an iini tbrice for
man. if for a clcrcrvman. is many times as
ha has orders, and at tho conclusion a peal on
all tho bells to distinguish the quality of tho
person io? n-hoti) the peoplo are to put up
The ceremony mentioned by Durand was
very dissimilar to that iu vogue in England,
Gotland and America in later times. In
northern Rjjg1rjd and in Scotland, after tho
conclusion of the reutur ceremony, nine plow
taps or knells aro given for a man, six f oi-a
it-Oman and three for a child of either sex. In
the Ut-,:tod States, sinca earliest times, ono
kneU has ma lied tho doroiso of a man and
two that of a woman. No distiuctiou is tuttdo
in case of a child, tho on& knell signifying Chi
male sex, two tho female. John W. "Wright

Gold mining is in many minds still associ
ated with a llaniK 1 shirted, long booted,
gambling class of doubtful mann.-rs, who,
with pick, shovel and pan, found tortums in
the hill streams of tho far west or of tiie land
of the kangaroo. But this race of miners is
rapidly liecoiiiing as extinct as th'j redskin of
California or the black boy of Australia. As
tho supi riicial deposits which attracted tho
pioneers wero exliau-ted, the aid of machin
ery and science became csscnt ial, and a new
order of tilings began iutrnducLi'gtlio capital
ist, t-ho chemist and the engineer. Moreover,
in tlieir h:ste to get rich, and, with their
nisigii and ready appliances, tho early dig
;;vi:: only worked the richest, -round and
parsed over tons acres of stair that, with
uiod.ru suetho'Ls, would pay handsomely.
To convey an idea of tho perfoction which
has Ix-cn attaiii'jd in somj of the processes of
tixl r.' one illustration will suiuce. During a
quarter's (three mv.nths) working last year of
th.j alluvial deis:ts of Daylcsford, Victoria,
somu :;J,5:i:l tons of ;;ravi;l wero t roared and
gnvo an avcrago yi. l I of grains troy of
old from each t'n of gravel. That is to say,
of all this enormous mass of material dug up,
pa-s.':l through the apparatus and redeposited,
ui-.ly one-eighti-eii hundred aud fourttiaith
part was of value, t'.i other 1,!PJ parts being
asi-k-i-s. In other words, suppose an acre of
land fifteen feet deep to bj turne.l over,
broken up to tho i:;o..t iniuuto proportions
aud Uuliiy rcaioved, iu ol der that it might
bo made to yield up a hidden treasure in tlio
form of liae dust, the whole of which could
be ?.-!sily held in a r.aiall coal scuttle. And
this was aceompliske.l presumably at a cost
which left a reasonable margin of profit.
Tin -so results are altogether unparalleled
iu any other kind of metal mining. Asa
rule, the metal or its oro forms the bulk of
the mass treated. Thus, iron often consti
tute 7o per cent, of the mineral, lead 85 to S7
per cent., copper 7 to 08 per cent., and silver
83 to VJ per cent., wbib the gold in the case
quoted only amounted to .000 1 18, or a little
ovev one-ten thousandth part of 1 per cent.

Hells in the Critish Isles.
The introduction of Ix-lls into western Eu
ropo is usually sot down at tibout A. D. 550.
However, ono Clemmctti, abbot, or, as some
say, bishop of YVaine, is thought to have
used one in his monastery as early as 4(H)
A. D. History records the fact that Bene
dict, abbot of 'Wearmouth, had otto which
ho obtained in Italy, erected on a campanile
near his church in C'O. Thiy had been in use
in France more than 100 years at tho time
of Benedict's enterprising venture. Pope
Sabiniaus, who ruled from tho year 004 to
tho year 007, A. p., first established rules
concerning the ringing ot bt-Hs. His ordi
nance declared that they should be rung
every hour, a warning to tho peoplo to be
ready for tho hours of worship. Germany
was almost GOO years behind Franco iu the
matter of bells, there being none in that
country prior to the lieginning of the Elev
enth, crrrinry. The first bell put up in Eng
land was that at Croylaud Abbey, Lincoln
shire, in the ear 945.
For years after tho introduction of bells
into tho British Isles only hand bells of rude
construction wore us.l. St. Patrick's bell,
tho Clog-tin-eadhat'hla Pl.atra ic, or "the bell
of Patrick's will," is still preserved among
other relics of untold valuaat Belfast, Ireland.
It is haad made, of course, almost six inches
in height and exactly five inches broad and
four deep. In tho year lu;l a case mado of
gold, silver rnd brass was begun, which was
not finished with Its filigree work and settings
of gems until the year 1 105, the. delicate work
having occupied the time of the maker almost
fourteen yenrs, as shown by tho inscription

St. Louis Republic.
King Louis XIV was a great lover of bil
liards, aud his iij.-(iiiiiiV.it i.obiesi:i their
grand per'.nuies. Lis ma.hala and geirerals.
matched their skill against their royal mas
ter's about some elaborately inlaid billiard
table in t'ao royal salons of Veivai-les. On
Chamillard is recorded to have gaiui d a high
ofiice of state from his skill at billiards, which
the kinrr deligbtod to witness.
Wheii tlio French ;;'air.o was introduced
into England, at which time tho regency in
Franco brought something like peace and
good will between tho two nations, it sooa
superseded the old futkioed g:m:. It wa:
played, aoeoi-diug to voutemporary accounts,
"only with masts aud balls," the mast being
tho masse, or mace, an instrument stiil to be
met with in billiard rooms.
With tho mace tho ball is r.vsbed and not
struck, and kngbsu piayevs adhered to the
mace long after it had beesi superseded on
tho continent by the cue. And the mace was
considered the lady's weapon even up to re
cent times. Tl.a FiT-llt'l; gr.na vns played
with t a o v. hito balls, aud ihe play consisted
in hazarding your adversary's ball and keep
ing out cf tha pocket yourself, just as single
pool is played nowadays. But before the end
of tho century .r. third 'was introduced
tht ted bail which bore the mysterious
name of "carambole." And how to hit the
two halls successively became one of the
points of play, and tho coram, or cannon,
added u.ficsh -Interest to ttm- play. With
this camo into existence tho English game,
"par excellence,' at which, all hazards count
to tho striker, except that unfortunate one
known as a coup, where his ball flies into a
pocket without having touched another cn
its passage. All tla Year Round.
Delivering tlio Mail at Fayal.
Tlio arrival of the' mail throws Fayal into
a state of excitemeut Half tho population
tlv?n comes to town, and a hot and steaming
crowd packs itself into tho one postoCice
that tho island possesses. As the postmaster,
plainly conscious of his importance on an oc-.-j-iori
o-bich. UACPens only oiice a fortnight,-
a i'.ances witli tlio letters to tho llttie cteSK
which separates the throng from tho ofJh'e,
tho stranger is struck by tho ridiculous dis-
portion between tho size of the crowd and
that of tho packet, a circumstance which is
explained by tho fact that every woman ex
pectin;; tidings from husband or st;n is acconi-paui-.Ml
ajiparently by tho rest of tho family.
Tha jablier subsides into a buzz of suppressed
excitement as tho postmaster adjusts his sjiec
tack3 with the most exasperat ing composure.
IIo calls out tho name on tho topuiost L.tter;
a shrill voico 011 tho confines of tlio crowd in
timates its destination, when half a dozen
hands are stretched out to receive it and it
is passed over tho heads of tho crowd to the
fort unato recipient.
The bui'.z is renewed after each announce
ment; tho postmaster has constant' to repeat
Ins dem-ind for sil;-nce, iu which ho is of
-ou rso joined by such of tho crowd as have
not yet received a letter. As tho delivery
j.rocceds the crowd gets naturally noisier,

It seems clear that the body of the stories
in their .-;x-..eut form are Moslem and Ara
bian. The language is p'U'o Arabic; not,
indeed, of tho c!a.;.-ic tyj, not that of the
Koran nor oven of the great historians;
rather comparatively modern and popular,
but still genuine Arabia. It contains a num
ber of Persian word:,, but n t more than it
would naturally appropriate from its Persian
shaking neighbors, not more in number than
tlio French words which many an English
book of today contains. Tho stylo also is
Arabian, sharply contrasted for tho most
part with tho Persian, tos.si!ly somewhat
aliected by Persian inlluence, 3"et far from
that dvliberata and persistent sj'st:;m of bal
anced short phrases which to the western
inind become;! sometimes positively irritating.
Tho manners and customs of the Nights
may many of them bo found in tho Arabic
speaking world of today. Lanes notes to his
translation are a treasure of sociological
information, and a large part of his illustra
tions are derived from his own observation
of life in Egypt. All domestic details, such
as tho construction of houses, customs of eat
ing, sleeping, education of children, mar
riages, social intercourse, methods ot com
merce, tho forms of shops and khans, habits
of commercial travel, tho organization of
bazars, modes of attracting customers, tho
political organization, califs, sultans, kings,
wazirs, judges, courts, officers of police,
prisoners, laws of debtors and creditors,
regulations of religion, mosques, imams,
prayers, ablutions, Koran recitations, funer
als all these are Moslem and Arabian.
There is an accurate knowledge of the topog
raphy and life of Bagdad, Damascus aaw
Cairo. When the scene is laid in Cairo on
may now trace the fortunes of the personages
by tho streets and gates mentioned in tho
story. Even when the history deals with re
mote lands, as China and India, the narrator
transfers thither his own Moslem customs.
For example, in tho long and dramatic story
of "Kamar-al-Zaman," which moves almost
over the face of the globe, one is not conscious
of change of social and religious conditions,
and so everywhere, unless, indeed, there bo
specially introduced a city of fira worshipers,
which tho writer's historical sense forces hiia,
of course, to represent as con-Moslem.
Tho attitudo of the Nights toward tho Per
sian Zoroastrianism, or fire worship, is
uotoworthy. The Slagians are represented
as fiends in human shape, iiioi.ly clever ad
venturers, adept in diabolical arts, and in
spired bj- a GendUb. hatred of Mo.-lems a
representation that w-e should refer mora
naturally to Arabian Moslems than to con
verted Persians; it iKiiatJ to the jveriod w hen
tho conflict between Islam r.nd Zoroastrian
ism was still raging, and religious deferences
wero magnified nnd distorted by politi?al
hate. a IL Toy La Atlnntip.

An Unplcasaut Combination.
A west side citizen was thrown into a rather
speculative mood ono day recently while
walking on Sladison street, near Ashland av
enue, by four meetings ho had with three dif
ferent p-:ons aud a conveyance, whose occu
pations are peculiarly linked together, aud
his speculation was whether or not 'chance
had arranged them in the proper order, pv
whether they shoulj bo transposed to mako
matters strictly right. Tho first meeting ho
had was with Francis Chafi'eo, tho under
taker; a little further on bo met au empty
hearse; next camo Rev. Dr. Thomas, and
following him came a pbj-sieiau, Dr. Foster.
The four wero met at nearly equal intervals,
but yet had no connection with each tthc-v,
and tha citizen bc-gru; to ask uiuiself: Should
tho doctor como first as causing tho need of
tho others; should t'ao hearse coma Grst aud
be followed by the undertaker and the oth
ers, cr should the muiL-.ter precede them all?
It is hardly possibto that tuo citizen, arrived
a"t any satisfactory solution of the problem,
but at any rate ho thought it odd lie should
meet, ono after the other, wich a quartot.
