However, careful readers are left t'X the conclusion that not until several cturlea lalr did the "Phoenician spirit" of activity maka Itself felt. This great Phoenician people must be credited with the mastery of the arta of money coining, metal working, glass mak ing, dyeing and weaving, and with tha In vention of tha first alphabet comprehensive enough to meet the requirements of com munlcatlon( accounting and recording.

Tba following we quote ,"Tba Hospital" are aome of the prescriptions advised by the magicians; Take the head of a dog that ha died of rabies, mix the ash with oil of Cyprus and Inject the product Into the ear of th af fected aide. A water snake's vertebra, will serve to scarify the gum provided that it be ob tained from a white skinned snake. Or for the same purpose may be used a? Ho ard's frontal bone obtained wtien the moon h full, or. If that fall, a rhkrfeen bone will do, provided that It be dried in hole In a wall and thrown away immediately after used. ' it Is good treatment to inject into an aching ear oil of lemon, In which has been macerated either mallow buga or parrowa' dung, even should this last give rise to Itch ing. A worm fed on a particular tierb or a cabbage caterpillar can conveniently be placed in a hollow tooth, but it Is equally simple to chew an adder'a heart.
