A WONDERFUL TALE OF LONG ,
now Perseus the Bravo Brought the
Gorgou's need to wicked King Poly-
doctos-Briglrt Mrs. Duck-Ring For-
The Gorgon's Head.
One.day , long ago , when strange
monsters lived on the earth and great
heroes went forth to conquer them
that their names might become
famous in the land , there lived on the
island of Seriphus a wicked people
with their king , Polydectes. Some
years before this story opens a good
fisherman saw a cask floating on the
waters , and drawing it to shore he
found that it contained the beautiful
princess Damn and her little son
t ! You may wonder how they came to
be in the cask on the water. They
had floated over the ocean from
another kingdom , where the people
had intended to drown them. But
Jove , the mighty god of Olympus , had
commanded Poseidon to calm the
waters , and that is how they fell to
the mercy and kindness of the fisherman -
man who rescued them.
The king of Seriphus was a wicked
man , and lie wished nothing better
than the destruction of young Perseus.
So when he had grown to be a tall ,
supple youth , surpassing in strength
and beauty all the young men in
lolydectes' kingdom , he was commanded -
manded to go forth and conquer the
Gorgon Medusa , and to bring to the
king the head of this monster as a
proof of his valor.
Now , there were thre3 of these
Gorgons , sisters , and they were the
most awful monsters imaginable. Resembling -
sembling in part the form of women ,
but being covered with scales of
steel impenetrable to the sharpest
knife , and having claws of burnished
brass , wings of pure gold , and instead -
stead of teeth , great tusks protruding -
ing from cavernous mouths , they pre
sented a startling appearance ; yet
when flying about in the sunlight a
weird kind of beauty was lent to
them by the reflected light.
But I have not told you the worst
of them yet. In place of hair , a hundred -
dred snakes curled and twisted and
writhed on the head of each , and woe
to the mortal that looked any of
these horrors in the face , for at that
same moment he would be turned
from warm flesh and blood to cold ,
Perseus , however , with the fire of
youth and strength and bravery filling -
ing his dauntless breast , proudly undertook -
dertook this perilous task , with no
hope of reward save the fame that his
deed , if accomplished , would bring
him. He left the king's chamber full
of hope and ambition , but the afterthought -
thought of the peril that he was about
to encounter made him so sad that he
could not bear to tell his mother of
his undertaking. So , girding on his
trusty sword and taking his shield
over his arm , he crossed the water to
the mainland and sat down in the
woods to think what he should do
Suddenly lie liearl a clear , tinkling
voice asking what troubled him , and
looking up he beheld Quicksilver before -
fore him. All his sorrow and misgiv.
ings left him at sight of , this personage -
age , and well they might , for his very
looks forbade repinings. He had a
face , bright but ever changeful , as if
the sun in dancing over it struck some
inward chord that brought smiles
and dimples to the surface , as hub-
bles rise to the surface of mater. He
wore an odd cap on his golden hair ,
and carried a stick in his hand , around
which snakes seemed twining. On
his feet were sandals , and cap , staff
and sandals seemed to be supplied
with wings , so light were all his
movements , so quick and buoyant his
After hearing the tale of Perseus ,
Quicksilver , or Mercury , as he is sometimes -
times called , told the young man to
polish his shield till it shone like a
mirror , and taking a short crooked
sword that hung by his side , he fastened -
tened it to Perseus in place of his
Even yet , however , he might not attack -
tack the Gorgon , so they repaired to
the forest -Twilight , where lived
the three sisters of the Dusk , who
directed them where to find the
winged sandals , the cap of Aides ,
which rendered the wearer invisible ,
and the magic wallet.
After getting p3ssession of these
precious gifts , Perseus and Quicksilver -
ver rose into the air. It was now
night , and Perseus , looking down , beheld -
held the beautiful earth bathed in
moonlight and stretched like a magic
Over valleys and mountains they
sped , like two huge birds , till they
approached the seashore. Then out
over the water , and there on an island -
and , rock-bound , except on one side ,
where a stretch of silver sand sparkled
in the moonlight , lay the three Gor-
gons asleep , their huge golden wings
dropped backward on the glistening l
sand , the snaky ringlets rearing
themselves and hissing drowsily.
"Now , said a low , calm voice , which
Perseus recognized as belonging to
Minerva , "look into your shield and 1
strike quickly. That is Medusa mov-
ing. If you look at her , your errand
is in vain. "
And quickly obeying , Perseus struck
off the head of Medusa , just as she
was awakening from a horrible
" " cried " it in
"Quick , Mercury , "put
the wallet and fly ! "
What was Persens' surprise to see
the apparently small purse enlarge
till it could hold the great head ,
snaky locks and all. Then rising
into the air , they sped on , pursued by
the now awakened sisters , who filled
- - - . . , , , t
the air with unearthly cries. Bnt the
helmet of Aides completely hid Per-
seus from their view , and soon their
cries became faint as the distance between -
tween them waxed greater.
The task was done. But the homeward -
ward journey covered many dangerous -
ous fields , and' Perseus met with several -
eral thrilling adventures , besides rescuing -
cuing Andromeda from the water
monster sent to devour her.
When he reached home at last you
may imagine his anger at finding
that his mother had been forced to
fly , during his absence , from the
cruelties of King Polydectes. That
monarch was much chagrined to behold -
hold the prince that he thought lie
had sent to death. But dissembling ,
he greeted Perseus and demanded
that the head of Medusa be shown
before all his assembled people.
Perseus at first , was loth to consent -
sent , but when the king threatened
punishment and lie remembered the
ill-treatment of his mother , lie drew
forth the head and cried :
"Then look ! "
Immediately the king and all the
people were transfixed in marble , fit
monuments of their unpitying
Smelling the Bean Sauce.
There was in Yedo a poor man who
had worked liftrd and long , and had
saved a small sum of money. He had
no strong-box to keep it in ; and it occurred -
curred to him that if he dropped it
inside an empty bean-sauce cask , no
one would ever think of looking there
for it. Now this bean sauce is much
used by poor people ; but the smell is
very strong and somewhat offensive
to persons of delicate taste. Some ingenious -
genious thief , after all ( lid discovcy
the hiding place , for one day the poor
man found his money missing. He
1S ent immediately to Oka , and told
him of time loss , adding that he
thought it must be laid to time charge
of some of his neighbors. So Oka
summoned all time poor man's neighbors -
bors for the next day. and wli n they
had appeared in court , Oka announced -
nounced : "In my opinion it is one of
von that has stolen this money from
the bean-sauce cask , and , if so I shall
be able to tell by time smell of the
thief's fingers. So let each of you
come up here and present his hands
in turn. " Just as lie said this , he not ,
ticed one of the men in the back part
of the court-room suddenly put his
hand to his nose and smell it. "That
man over there is the thief ! " immediately -
' ately exclaimed time judge , pointing
to the man
Oka knew , you see , that if the thief
was really among the erowdhis tuilty
conscience would probably suggest
to him the thought , "Will my hands
betray me-Harpers Young People.
A pretty way to tell fortunes is to
hank a gold ring-a plain one is best
-on a long hair just taken from some
one's head and , resting your elbow on
a table where a glass tumbler or goblet -
let is set , let the ring hang down until -
til it swings just below the top of the
glass. Hold the enls of the hair
firmly between the thumb and forefinger -
finger , and keep the hand perfectly
still. In a little while the ring mvi11
begin to swing back and forth , going
faster and farther until it strikes the
side of the tumbler with a tinkling
Now time questions must be asked
.by the one who holds the ring or any
one watching the performance. All
questions must be such as can be
answered by ye , orno. For example ,
you could not ask "When am I going
away ? " but 'Am I going away at suchm
or such a time ? " One tap of the ring
on the glass means "No. " two means
"It is uncertain , " three means "Yes. "

I grieve to say that Robert was a
bad little boy , and among other bad
habits he had one of saying "rats" to
his mother when she reproved him.
One day she told him that the neat
time he said "rats" to her she would
punish him severely. Being taken to
task later in the day for some childish
misdemeanor , he threw his head back
and exclaimed with flashing eyes :
