Old Eastern Legend That
How She Wet Created.
The last section "'Of a Finger of
the Moon Reddened by the Setting
Sun" in the Sanskrit work called the
"Surging of the Ocean of Time"
contains a legend concerning wo
man's creation which is commonly
credited throughout India and
which runs somewhat as follows:
At the beginning of time Twashtri,
the Vulcan of Hindoo mythology,
created the world. But when he
wished to create a woman he found
ho had employed all his materials
in the creation of man. There did.
not remain one solid clement. Then
Twashtri, perplexed, fell into a pro
found meditation. lie roused him
self to do as follows: lie took the
lightness of the leaf and the glance
of the fawn, tho gayety ol the sun'8
rays and tears of the mist, the in
constancy of the wind and tho ti
midity of the hare, tho vanity of the
peacock, and the softness of the
down on tho throat of the swallow,
the harshness of the diamond, the
sweet flavor of honey, tho cruelty
of the tiger, the warmth of fire, the
chill of snow, the. chatter of the
iay and the cooing of the turtle
dove. He melted all these and form
ed a woman. Then ho made a pres
ent of her to man. Eight days later
tho man came to Twashtri and 6aid:
"Mv lord. the creature yon ave
rr.e 7" nr,s TnyTxlstonce. rsne cm
tcrs without rest, she takes all my
time, she laments for nothing at all
and is always ill." And Twashtri
received the woman again. But
eight days later tho man came again
to the god and 6aid:
"My lord, my life is very solitary
since I returned this creature. I
remember she danced before mv
singing. I recall how she glanced
at me from the corner of her eye,
that she played with me, clung to
mo." And Twashtri returned the
woman to him. Three days only
passed, and Twashtri saw tho man
coming to him again.
"My lord." said ho, "I do not un
derstand exactly how, but I'm sure
the woman causes mo more annoy
ance than pleasure. I leg of you
relieve mo of her."
But Twashtri cried, "Go your
way and do your best!"
And the man cried, "I cannot
live with her"
"Neither can you live without
her," replied Twashtri.
And tho man went sorrowfully
away, murmuring: "woe is me. I
can neither live with her nor with
out her." '
The Filipino Judge.
A former official in tho Philip
pines tells this story of a native
I came home ono day just in tune
to see a thief climbing out the win
dow with the better part of my
wardrobe. I gave chase 60 earnest
ly that the thief finally dropped the
clothes in the street and disappear
ed. As I gathered up my belong
ings a native policeman camo along
and insisted on arresting me. He
took mo before a Filipino judge,
where I told my story very plainly
When I had finished the judge
said, "You are dismissed, but you
may leave the clothes here."
"But why?" I insisted agrily.
"Because," said he, with sago de
liberation, "how can I tell that you
speak the truth? When tho thief
comes back to identify theso clothes
as the ones he stole you may have
them." Youth's Companion. ,
