Jan Pielersem, of Amsterdam, was
a good churchman, hut nevertheless
he was afraid of being hewilchod. On
the last night of- 1G54 ho sat in his
baheshop trying to keep out tho evil
spirits by priming himself with a glass
of good spirits. Sales had boon
brisk. There were no customers in
the shop for tho moment, and he sat
back, meditating on the gains he
would make- on the morrow, when
the fresh New Year's, cakes were put
on sal. He wa startled by a sud
den rap. An, ujdy. woman pushed the
door open. ',
"Grt mer a -down New Year's

The"shrillneB8 of her voice did not
mean anything to , his slow Dutch
mind. It, only annoyed, him.

when the heavy fines were
necessary "to counterbalance light
weights, and the bakers, in order to
insure full weight, took the precau
tion to add an additional unit. Some
have called it the devil's dozen, be

General Wood, having slaughtered
600 Moras, including women and chil
dren, has been congratulated by the
president. It is safe to say that he
will not receive., the felicitations of
congress or of the people. Corralling
600 Moros. in a crater and hauling

sacre them, is as bad as anything of

we went to war for humanity and
