One of the strangest and most unexpected of the uses to which, we could
imagine a leg as being put is that ot
an organ of hearing. Yet such seems
to be one at least of the functions ol
the fore legs in the cricket. On tht-

space may be seen. In which the strom:
armature which covers the rest of the
body is reduced to a thin und mem
branous condition, making thus a sort
of window or drumhead. Communicating with this, inside tho log. are the
ends of a nerve, and it can .hardly bo

"Tlio passion  which is   best for the  health ia avarice.    It keeps one cool,  encourages   regular   and   industrious  habits,   lends  to   abstemiousness  and  makes against all excess.    And hence  the avaricious, the misers, live to a  groat age.   The misers of history were  nil noted for their longevity.   Rage Is  very bad for one.    The passion causes  an  irregular, intermittent,-beating of  the  heart,   and   the  intermittency la  time may become chronic.   Hatred creates fever.   If we hate, we grow lean.  This hot, passion cuts us like a flame.  -Fear is bad for the nerves, the heart  and the brain, and therefore we should  never permit ourselves to be afraid.  But the strangest effects of all have  been caused by the passion of grief.  The medical books record cases where,  coming suddenly in a violent Bhock, ft  has -"ucsed a loss of blood from the  Inngn In one person, paralysis of the  tongue in another and a failure of sight  or temporary blindness in la third."

It was about the year 178-1 that the  first forgeries on a very large scale  were.discovered by the Dank of England, and these were done by one man.  known from his favorite disguise as  "Old .Tiitch,"    By   a   large  issue  of  notes spread over a long period he defrauded the bank of more than ������200,-  000, and,   having only on/** confidant,  his, mistress,  great diflicu.fy was experienced In tracing the source of the,  forgeries.    "Old Patch" in his checkered   career, of  lottery  office  keeper,  stockbroker   and  gambler   had  given  banknotes,'careful study and acquired  a knowledge of engraving, paper making and printing.    He made his own  Ink, manufactured the paper and print  ed the notes on a private press.   In ���������'��������� various disguises he hired boys from the  streets to present the notes.

Slowly, with skillful appreciation of every muscle, his feet  grind up and down your back. They  encircle your neck. They are on your  head.  "Then he vaults lightly off, and in *  moment from a linen bag filled with  soap he has squeezed clouds of perfumed bubbles, and you are hidden in  them from head to foot as completely  j ns if you had fallen into a snowdrift.
