A Young Man who wanted to buy some pretty jewelry for his Best girl dropped into one of the John Street jewelry shops the other Day. He selected a handsome Bracelet which Cost $40. He did no to happen to have so much Money with him. And told the Man who waited on him to put it aside for him and he would Call for it later in the Day. He noticed of he spoke that the Man was eyeing him very intently. It made him feel slightly uncomfortable Aud the thought flashed across his mind that the Man did not believe that he would return. A i suppose you done to like to do that sort of thing a he said a but i will come for it surely. I will leave a Deposit if you the Man smiled and Shook his head. A a of no a he said. A a i Wasny to thinking of that at All. I was just going to say to you that there is no need of your coming Down again. Just write out a Check for the amount and take the Bracelet along with you or if you prefer i will Send it to your he took a Blank Check from a drawer and handed it to the customer together with a pen.

The building of the pyramids of Egypt is still a wonder still a matter of Mere speculation. These pyramids once one of the seven wonders of the world Are seventy in number Aud staud about six Miles in a straight line from Cairo. The largest entitled the Pyramid of Cheops covers eleven acres of ground. It is 480 feet High. Herodotus states that 100,000 men were employed forty years in constructing this Pyramid which covers a Square whose Side is 708 feet. It is built of vast blocks of Stone brought from quarries Many Miles Distant. Various opinions As to the uses of these pyramids have been hazarded. One is that they were erected for astronomical purposes but the generally accepted belief is that they were sepulchres. Whenever an egyptian King began his reign he began to construct a Pyramid Cal Tomb not very Large at first in order to secure its being finished before his death. Once built new layers of Stone were put upon it on All sides and thus Tho longer the reign the larger the Pyramid. The Dif Ference in the size of these structures is thus accounted for. Always in the Center of the Structure a Small room was reserved to which Access could be obtained from a secret gallery from without and in this sepulchral Nook there is a coffin of red Granite in which human remains were once deposited. The outer casing of each Pyramid was of polished Black Marble set in a Cement which is As Bard As the Stone itself. This casing has fallen from the sides of the Pyramid of Cheops and it is a favorite but fatiguing feat for tourists to climb up to the top. Which is a Flat table of Stone thirty two feet j.
