The flocks of llamas belonged to the
sun and the Inca It -was death to
kill one At certain seasons of the
year they were collected from the hills
and shorn Large numbers were sent
to supply food for the court and to be
used at the religious festivals and sac
rifices Male llamas only -were killed
The -wool belonged to the Incu and
was stored in the government deposi
tories and dealt out according as the
peoples wants required In this Avay
they were provided with warm cloth
ing When they had worked up enough
wool into clothing for themselves they
were then employed in working up
material for the Inca The distribu
tion of the wool and superintendence
of Its manufacture were in the hands
of officers appointed for the purpose
No one was allowed to be idle Idle
ness was a crime and was severely
All the mines belonged to the Inca
and were worked for his benefit The
various employments were usually in
the hands of a few and became heredi
tary What the father was that the
son became A great part of the agri
cultural products was stored in grana
ries scattered up and down the coun
try and was dealt out to the people as
required It will thus be seen that
there was no chance for a man to be
come rich neither could he become
poor The spirit of speculation had no
existence there Chambers Journal
A Clever Scheme That Wan Spoiled
In the DrnwiiiFr
Two young men in a French village
were called on to draw for conscrip
tion One oily Avas Avanted to complete
the number and of the tAvo who Avere
to draw one was the son of a rich farm
er and the other the child of a poor
The farmer ingratiated himself Avith
the superintendent of the ballot and
promised him a present if he could find
means to preAeut his son from going
in the army In order to accomplish
this the official put into the urn tAAro
black balls instead of one white and
one black ball When the young men
came he said
There are two balls one black and
one white in the urn He aat1io draws
the black one must sen e Your turn
is first pointing to the widows son
The latter suspecting that all AA as
not fair approached the urn and drew
one of the balls Avhich he immediately
swallowed without looking at it
Why said the superintendent
have you done that Hoav are we to
know whether you have drawn a black
or a white ball
Oh thats Aery easy to discover
was the reply Let the other now
draw If I have the black he must
necessarily draw the white one
There was no help for it and the
farmers son putting his hand into the
urn drew the remaining ball which to
the satisfaction of the spectators was
a black one

In some parts of Scotland it is cus
tomary for a bride to bring a dower to
her husband no matter how little
One couple who had experienced the
strife of wedded bliss for some years
were having the usual row when the
husband taunted the lady with the
paucity of worldly goods with which
she had endowed him

The tall cliffs of Ballybunion Avade
knee deep In the rough Atlantic They
are the buhvarks of Erins Avest coast
and since the Avorlds beginning the
wild Atlantic surges breaking against
them have eaten them but in caves
and holIoAAs
These cliffs of Ballybunion contain
in their depths masses or iron pyrites
and alum Now and then the salt sea
water eats into these masses and ox
idization at once takes place and
flames burst forth and the rocks crack
and melt in the great heat
Once the cliffs of Ballybunion burn
ed for weeks Like a volcano they
sent up yellow flame and black foul
smelling bitter smoke and the Irish
came from hundreds of miles to see
that Avonderful sight
Only in Ireland only in Ballybun

Development of a Chick
The development of a chick Avitliin
the egg is one of the most Avonderful
things in nature At the end of the
fifty eighth hour of incubation the
heart begins to beat two vesicles are
seen and a feAV hours later the auri
cles also appear On the fourth day
the outlines of the Avings may be per
ceived and sometimes of the head also
on the fifth day the liA dr is visible on
the sixth other internal organs appear
In 190 hours the beak is fully formed
in 200 hours the ribs are clearly deAel
oped In 240 hours the feathers
in 2GS hours the eyes appear in

A chief of bureau in the naA y de

their husbands might be attached So
an order to that effect AAas promulgat

Male Birds Lend the Way
When birds are migrating the males
usually precede the females The rob
ins for instance which are seen early
in the year are almost invariably males
which apparently traveled on befort
their mates The female binds follow
perhaps because they are noc so pow
erful and also perhaps because they
like to take their time and gossip with
one another In the fall the male birds
leave first the old ones while the fe
males travel along together with their
young solicitous for their welfare and
still training them after the fashion of
mother birds
Canals anil Roads In Prance
It is curious that the French who
have done more than most nations to
cultivate the graces of life should be
the people to boast the most perfect
system of canals and roads in the
world more curious still that when
most practical they are still careful
not to sacrifice the purely graceful or
decorative The roads and canals are
built for use but between their serried
ranks of poplars they become so many
stately groves and avenues crossing
the country from end to end Century
