V Wild Animals and Medicint. A, writer in tlio Hrltlsh Medical Jour nal thinks Hint nn Interesting essay might be written on t lie addition to medical remedies nmde by nnlinnls. It 1h Bnld Hint It 1h to dogs wo owe tlio knowledge of tlio fever abating prop erties of bnrk, while to the hippopota mus Is attributed tlio iihg of bleeding. The story ns told In Philemon Hoi lontl's translation of IMIny Ih ns fol lows: "Tlio rlticr-Horsc hntli tnught physltloiiB one deiilco In Hint pnrt of their profession culled Stirgcrlo, for he tlndlng IdniHcIf ouer-grosso mid fiit by reusoii of his high feeding mi contln nnlly gets forth of the water to the Hhore, lintiltig spied nfore where the reeds nnd niRlies hniic bin newly cut. nnd where he sooth the sharpest cane titul best pointed heo cts his body hard on to It to prlcke n ccrtnlno vohio In one of his legs, nnd thus by letting himself blond tnnketh cvucuntlou, whereby his body, otherwise Inclin ing to diseases mid tnalndles, Is well eased of the superfluous humor, nnd hailing thus dono hoe stopped) the ori fice n gnl tie with mud and so "tnneheth the bloud nnd healeth the wound." His Idea of the English. The follow lug Illustrates Louis Phi lippe's Idea of Ihiglnud and the Hug llsli. He one day asked Hugo If ho had ever been In Ihiglh'd and on re ceiving u ifgntho reply continued: "Well, when jou do go for jou will go you will see how strange it Is. It resembles France In nothing. 0er there nie older, arrangement, syuiinc tiy, cleanliness, well mowed Inwnsand profound silence on the streets. The pnssorsby ate as serious and as mutu as specters When, being Pi ouch and nllve. you spon la the street these specters look hack at jou nud murmur with an Inexpressible inlxtino of grav ity and disdain, 'i'leneli people!' When I was In Loudon I was walking arm in arm with my wife and sister. Wo weie conversing In a not ton loud tone of o!cc, Tor we are well bred persons, jou know, jet ail tlio passorsby, bour geois and men or the people, turned to gtre at us. nud wo could hear them growling behind us: 'Pioueli people! Pronch people!'" "Memoirs or Victor Hugo." Rossini and the Drum. When Ilnsslnl's "Oica I.tulra" was performed for the tird time the diutti In the n;hcstiii not onh ccllod inin'i comment, hut caused the enemies of Hie loiiiposcr. whom they denounced us a "foolMi Inventor of unmusical novelties," to thieateii IJosslul with bodily violence. One jnuug man. a pupil of Holla's, gained admission to the composer's piesence and declined that ait had been so violently outraged by the Invention that lie must kill tlio offender. He diew n weapon, but con sented to listen to aiguuieiit. He had been n soldier, and when the composer nsked hlni why tlieic should not bo u drum where theio are soldlets he Hhenthed Ills knife. "Promise tue, though," lie said, "that you will put no drums In your futuie music" Kos slnl promised, but forgot. The Retort Courteous. A joutig in. in in a huiry went tlirough the left side of a pair of HWlnglng doors In the senate whig of the capltol at Washington last session and almost knocked over a senator who was about to push tlirough the light side. The jouug man apologized profusely. "I'm very sorry 1 didn't know I was 1 am In a great hurry." "That's all light, son," said the sen ator. "Hut let me give jou u pleco of advice about going tlirough doors like these. Always go tlirough on the light side nnd turn to the light Then if you meet anybody coming through mid bump into hltn you needn't npolo clze. He'll be n dtirned fool, and It won't be necessary. Good morning." Saturday Evening Post. Greatly Underestimated. "Hobby," asked Ills Sunday school teacher, "do you know how many dis ciples there weie?" The little boy promptly said that he did and answer ed, "Twelve." Then ho went on, "And I know how many Pharisees there were too." "Indeed!" "Ycs'in. There was Just one less than there was disciples." "Why, how do you know that? it Is nowhere stated how many Plini l"eos there were." "I thought everybody knew It." said Hobby. "Tlio Hlhle sajs. 'Hewato of the Meven of the Pharisees,' doesn't It?" Youth's Companion. The Grandest. "What is tlio grandest thing In the universe?" asks Victor Hugo. "A Htorin at sea," lie answers nnd contin ues, "And what is grander than a storm nt ea?" "The unclouded heav ens on a stai r.v, moonless night." "And what Is grander than tlieso mid night skies?" "The soul of man" a Hjiectncular climax such ns Hugo loved and still, with all Its dramatic effects, the picturesque statement of n vast nnd HUbllmo and mighty truth. Crary.

Lit Combo publlalied n book entitled "A Picture of London,' hi which, Inter nlla, he sajs, "Tlio highroads thirty or forty mi.i round London nro filled with armed highway men and footpads." This una then pretty true, though the expression "filled" is boniewhat or tin txaggera Hon. The medlcnl student of fifty or more years ago seems to have been an ticipated in 1781, for M. I.n Combe tells us that "the brass knockers of doors which cost from 11! shillings to l. sh.i lings, are stolen at night If the inal.l forgets to unscrew them." a precaution which seems to have gone out of Msl. Ion. M. La Combe In another puit or his book exclaims: "How nro you changed, Londoners! Your women nro become bold, Imperious and expensive. Hank rupts and beggars, coiners, spies and lufortners, lobbers and pickpockets abound. Tlio baker mixes nluin In his btead. The brewer puts ophtti and copper filling In his beer. The milk woman spoils her milk with snails." The Blood Red Banner. Itoyal and national colors vary with nations and times, but since Cain slew Abel blood led has been the sign of le volt. In tile earliest tevolt known to history, when the Persians roe against their Mug -1,000 years ago, they wcio led by ti blood led banner, and during the i lots which to k place In Pails the men In tlie iilooit rod caps were mi lowed by the mob. A blood red ll.ig waved over Hunker 1 1 lit when the Americans rotight for liberty, nnd It was the emblem or the German peas ants In their gieat uprisings in 1 11! I. 1 Ib'j nnd 1.VJ3. Wood red was the col or of tlio trades union flags during the middle ages, and It framed the back ground of the emblem of the Swiss confederacy In 13K". Tlnoiigh the whole of Prcneh and every other na tional history those striking In their own wajs for liberty have worn the blood red cap and hailed the blood ictl r banner as their loader. It Is a curious fact that never has a monarch chosen It as Ids color. London Answers. Naive Lying.

A Doubtful Guarantee. The Arabs and.

'1 lie pious proviso is a very useful formula to the Moors and Is fteqiientl.v used in making promises Unit tlfj have no Intention whatever of keeping, as they can then take refuge behind the Almighty when tliej are ta.ed :th their bleach or faith.
