A Story With a Had Moral.
In n prosperous town in Mexico lives
a merchant whose wealth grew out of
a combination of good luck nnd drunkenness. -_n uncontrollable desire for
drink cost him position nfter position,
end li? drifted down to Mexico nud became n news ngent. He sold lottery
tickets, lie had to report on drawing } u,.i;
dny wlmt unsold tickets lie hud and
forward them, lie got drunk the day
before one of the big drawings. Two
dnys Inter lie sobered up and fouud
hiuisei. in possession of several buu-
divd dollars' worth of unsold tickets.
He did not possess $10 in the world,
lie examined the list and found thai
a number of the unsold tickets had
drawn prizes figgregating $35,000 in
gold. He collected the winnings, pnid
lor the-unsold tickets nnd took an oath
of perpetual total abstinence. Thut

is too food to suppress.
Ancient Proofreading.
The editions of books printed 200 01
300 years ago are almost ei.tirely free
from typographical errors, which mny
be attributed to the fact thnt early
publishers were generally eminent
scholars, and themselves gave much
attention to the revision of their
proofs. After reading tlie proofs they
frequently turned them over to other
scholars with the request to revise and
correct, and as the printer's time was
then deemed n matter of small consequence a perfection was attained whicli
is seldom equaled by modern printers
