before big audiences on hundreds oi

way of earning a living. The lecturer is

cannot get solid sleep any time. He
finds himself in uncomfortable quarters

THE CURSE O'f SCOTLAND.
Tlaere Arn Twenty-four Reasons Why the
Nine of Diamonds Is Culled I'iiIik U.
Every reader has at some period of his
or her life heard of the nine of diamonds
referred to as "tho curse of Scotland;"
but why, jierhaps, j-ou have never taken
the time or trouble to .ascertain.
In my "Repository of the Hareand the
Wonderful" I find no less than seventee:i
explanations of the origin of tin- expres
sion, while Sotithwick's "C'ii.z:.:;i and
I ts Key" gives eleven, seven of which are
wholly different from the answers given
in the vo:-k above ri f erred to, in.i';ing in
all twenty four different accounts of t In

Willi t lie nmo of diamonds lying before
Perhaps the most satisfactory explana
tion of the enigma is that which refers
it to the massacre of CJlencoe. Tho or
der for that cruel deed was siirned bv
the Earl of Stair, John Dalrymple, sec
ret;; i f .f r.tate for Scotland. Tho coat
of arms of the Dalrymple family bears
miie lozenges, resembling diamonds, on
its i hield. Thus it appears to have been
with reference to them that the nine
pot of diamonds was called "the curse
of Scotland." The best and most likely
of the other reasons for the origin of the
expression are given below.
During the reign of Mary a thief at
tempted to steal the crown from Eliza
beth castle, and succeeded in abstract
ing nine valuable diamonds from it. To
replace these a heavy tax was laid on
tho people of Scotland, which impover
ished tli em to such an extent that nine
diamonds, whether on- cloth, cards or
eal jewels, were sjioken of as "Albion's

The "Oracle, or Ret-4lver of Questions,
printed in 1770, says that the crown of
Scotland had but nine diamonds, and
that the Scotch people were too poor to

An Elevator Incident.
In one of the elevators in a down town
building the other day an absent minded
man came near departing this life with
unbecoming haste. He had stood close
by the door when the car stopped at his
floor and had allowed two or three other
passengers to bru.t-h by him. He had
made no signs of a desire to step out, but
when the elevator resumed its upward
course and the door was nearly closed he
gave a start and jumped forward until
his body projected out of the car and
prevented the door from closing. Luck
ily the conductor understood his busi
ness. With an instinctive movement he
stopped the car in a few inches. Then
he drew back the door and released the
venturesome passenger, who walked
away without even looking back or say
ing a word. The other passengers looked
on in silence.
Even the elevator man had nothing to
say for a minute, but when the next floor
was reached the whole affair seemed to
strike him in a new light. He didn't
think of the horror of a life suddenly
taken away, of the sickening sight of a
crushed and mangled body. "That's
what 1 call a mean man," quoth he with
severity. "V ant to have me sent to the
Tombs, eh? Gad! A man like that
ought to get hurt, he had." New York

When, howevt-r, a man is said to "jilant"
an estate i. does nut suiy more mean that
he does so personal lv than, when it is
:-aid that a man "furnisiies" a house, he
maKes ins own cabinets an t tables, or
puts down his own carpets though our
grandfathers and grandmothers, as often
tis not, actually did the latter, as well as
good souls! sewing the various strips
of carpets together.
If, however, it comes to planting trees
with one's own hands, there is etill some
thing to be said. Charles II planted
nearly all the trees in the avenue tit
Windsor with his, and some that are
now in St. James' park; and George HI
had a mania for planting his own trees,
as well as innumerable grape vines. Her
present majesty has planted over 5,000
trees in various places she lias visited,
and the Prince of Wales cannot be very
far behind her in also doing so. Galig
A Tt-rrapin Farm.
Of late years a number of terrapin
farms have been started along the Chesa
peake. The biggest farm is on the Patux
ent river, and it consists of a large salt
water lake, which could accommodate
thousands of terrapin if they would
breed as rapidly as is desired. The
farmer has surrounded this lake with
board fences to keep out the muskrats
and foxes, which are the terrapin's ene
mies. He has made hatcheries of boxes
partly filled with sand, and so arranged
that when the females enter them they
cannot get out until they are taken out.
He has nurseries for young terrapin, and
he keeps the little ones in here until they
are ten months old. in order to preserve
them from their fathers. Frank Cr. Car
