It seemed to him that the  High si a el people were simply trying to make a laughing stock of thc  council, and to his wav of thinking,  the comic.*i should  now order  in' ������e  people     who moved the locks in the  lirsL place   to   lake  them  away altogether.

As soon as I  ar Lived here I interviewed Mr. Stock-  ett and Mr. Graham for the purpose  of familiarizing myself with the facts  of thc case up to date, as the pies-  ciit difficulty has become acute since  I went away. Nothing was done or  even discussed as to teim. of settlement, as the company arc at present  considering further a scheme by  which the men( may be taken o\er to  Protection Shalt both moie comfortably and at less expense, than was  at fust anticipated, and when they  have completed their eiitruuics, negotiations for a basis of settlement  will be taken up. Th.s is being done  1 understand, because the company  has decided that /they will use Protection shaft for taking thc men up  and down irrespective of whether the  cight-boui law .remains as it is or  not."

"Vanity of vanities; all is vanity,'i  "all rivers run into tlie sea," "there  is no ne\sl������ thing under the sun," and  many other household sayings come  from Ecclesiastcs. "T������* ������tes.- jre  letter than one" sprang from "two  arc better than one," found in the  same book.  The classics have given no end of  these phrases to modern slang. For  instance, we claim "pumping a man"  as distinctly our own, when in reality il comes from Ot,way's masterpiece, "Venice Preserved," which appeared in 1CS2. Thc phrase, "It's an  ill wind that blows no one any good'  is traced to a sixteenth century poet  and wafs originally written, "It is  an ill wind that turns none to good"  From the same source came "Christmas comes ' but once ^ year" and  "look before you leap." A century  later, however, lhitler wiote, "look  I'efore ever you leap." Butler also  gave- "all cry and no wcol" and  "count 'tlieir chickens en; they're  hatched."
