Day after Day he could be seen on this deserted pathway going to visit the sick paupers. had been called away from the Convent on this cold Winter morning to serve As confessor to the greatest outlaw of Hungary. Every patient was glad to Sec the holy Man. For each one to had a kind word and a Sweet smile. Peace and happiness followed him from bed to bed. At last he came to Tho Low Couch on which the stranger Lay. A magnificent Beard covered his Broad powerful Chest. looked calmly at the kind Fra with his piercing Black eyes and then spoke sadly and slowly a Fra. I see that you Are pitying me. Alas there is perhaps but our other person that pities Emil Baj a a Twenty five years ago. When i was not yet the famous plundered i lived in the Little town of miskolc with my orphan Brothers. We were quite Happy for a time but Anton and i soon found that it was impossible for us to live with our virtuous Young brother whose goodness was continually reproving the corrupt Young nieu with whom we chose to associate. To were therefore very glad that he left us and there was no one after that to prevent our Cha Doug plunge to Ruiu. A one cold night while i was on my Way to the gambling houses i met my brother Aladar. Knelt before me in the deep Snow.

A Ladislaos a he whispered a Kaladar forgives Tho outlaw was Happy. kissed the sacred picture which Anton s Shaft bad pierced nud Plain dealer Alan s ingenuity has made it unnecessary that ships that pass at a distance it sea should do so in seeming indifference to each others presence or needs. Of a Long voyage Thuro Iho sight of another vessel is a pleasing break in the Monotony of Tho daily life and in times of distress and trouble the ability to ask Aud answer questions to request assistance or needed stores is very apparent. Then too the fascination of a the fell by Tho mind Lucils its inti Ronco to make Tho interchange of signals at sea a most interesting event. The use of a system of naval signals such As that of Tho present time requires special instruction and study mid is not picked up in a few minutes neither can it be acquired by spending an Odd hour now and again upon it. It comprises different methods of conveying orders or information to or from a ship in sight or within hearing but at a distance too great to permit of Linin Iuga in other words beyond the reach of Tho voice even when aided by Tho speaking trumpet. Signals am divided into Chesses according to Tho instruments with which they Are made. There Are sight and sound signals Flag semaphore fixed lantern Flushing firework Horn or steam whistle Ami gun is gulls Day night fog and Distant signals. Signalling is not by any Means a modern method of communicating. The signal codes of the ancients Are believed to Bavo been the result of much study. Generally some kind of Flag was used. Shields were also displayed in a manner arranged beforehand. Some people believe that the reflected rays of Tho Sun were flushed from these Shields As with the modern Heli graph. In Tho Middle Ages flags banners and lanterns were used to distinguish particular squadrons. They were used too us they Are at the present time to Call officers to the Admiral Aud to report sighting the enemy and getting into danger. According to a writer on this subject the British Admiral Kemp Eielt in 17s0 devised a plan of Flag signalling which was the Parent of that which is now in use. A certain Captain colomb worked for Riuo year s of a flashing system of signalling which is today in general use in All fleets. This system has made it jew sible to Handlo with Confidence Aud safety in darkness and fog squadrons composed of Tho Gigantic Armor lads of the Day and has greatly reduced Tho risk of accidents. An International code of signals has Heel compiled and adopted by All to commercial nations of the world. The system consists of flags Aud a code in a a umut. In using and interpreting Tho flags it is of course necessary to be in Possession of the signal code Book in which tile meanings attached to Ilie flags Aud combinations of the flags Uro printed. _ curious information about the Stork. That curious Bird Tho Stork is common in Many parts of Europe to which it migrates yearly from its Winter quarters in Africa. It is much valued in Many countries us account of tic services it renders in destroying noisome reptiles Aud unpleasant offal. The Stork is a very docile Bird Aud soon learns to follow its feeder for any Dainty morsel. When it is hungry it crouches on the ground and seems to beg for food by its gestures such As nodding its head Aud flapping its pinions. It is a very mild Aud peaceable Bird Seldom making Uso of its great Bill against its companions. The Stork is a great favorite in Holland Aud is found most useful in eating up the frogs lizards and toads which abound in the marshes and the people Are so fond of the storks that they become quite familiar and tame and build their nests of the chimneys and roofs of the houses. The dutch say Quot a Stork never builds of a bad Many a Bouse a therefore it is a Protection to a House if a Stork comes and builds its nest As no one would injure one of these favorite Birds. The Stork is very fond of building its nest upon High places such As the top of u Bouse a Chimney or a Church spire and in the ruined cities of the East upon the top of almost every pillar a storks nest is to be found. It is said that when the Parent Birds grow so old As to to Bare of feathers Aud unable to Fly Aud provide food for themselves the Young ones will bring it to them Aud Nestle close to them to keep them warm and protect them. Before the cold Winter comes the storks Fly away in Large flocks to Africa where they remain till the warm weather returns. The duped Dob. The cunts of India Are Clever rascals. A couple of them were Rueday observed to be trying to steal a Boue from a dog.

Being presently joined by his partner in crime. What the duped dug Felt can Only be imagined and it is to be feared the rascally crows added insult to injury by chaffing him mercilessly in the Corvine Toluca origin of dessert. We arc indebted to Tho French system of gastronomy for the dessert courses at meals. They had no place in the Early English dinner and were first introduced into that country in Tho time of the stuarts when the French revival took place under Charles 1. At first they were simply accompaniments to other courses being composed of various Sweet things designed recording to an old Norman writer a to take Tho taste of the horrible cookery out of their Mouths a in the Courso of time the sweets were put in a course by themselves which stimulated the French Cooks to put Forth their com slant endeavours to invent new dishes.
