It   in a Latin  manuscript of   the   four  gospels,   on  which tradition asserts  the  ancient   kings of  England   took   their coronation   oaths.    This     manuscript is y quarto volume of 217 leaves, written apparently toward the end of the  ninth   century,  and  for the period is a fine specimen of the writing   and  art of illumination.     It narrowly escaped destruction in the fire  at Ashbumham Hou.se in 1731, and  hears evidence of its danger in crumpled  leaves and  singed margins.     There seems  good   evidence that  Aihelstan  owned  the   volume   and   gave it to   the  church of Dover."  An ediiion of Shakespeare,   dated   1623, brought .  last year the sum of ��1,720.  The most curious street in   the  world is the   Rue  dela   Republique,   Lyons.     It has   recently   been  paved with glass.     The glass pavements are laid in  the form of blocks, eight inches square,  each   block  containing sixteen   parts   in the  form  of checkers.  The glass blocks  are so   closely fitted together that  water   cannot  pass   between    them, and the   whole  pavement looks   like   one   gigantic  draught-board.

Many beautiful and  becoming Diodes were displayed   at   the sSfore   of  F.  Irvine & Co., under the  direction   of MissTDarveaO.  The weather was delightfully springlike, and Nelson  ladies turned out in large numbers, the  store   being  thronged from morning until night.     The styles are  many and varitd   in shape, the majority   being   flat  and drooping at the liack, but it is in ihe   trimming  m&d   combination   of   colors that the   sense bf   tbe  beautiful is most   delighted.      Flowers   and   foliage  ate used extensively   and pendant drapery   appears  to be quite the vogue.    Sweeping ostrich plumes are  used   very   effectively   as   trimming   on   the   very  large hats.     The flat bat,  with a  mere   suggestion  of   a crown,  and   an    artistically draped  brim,   so  cleverly done that no other trimming is necessary is  another fashionable model.     The   popular   shade��  are letttsee green,coral pink and ecrue.    Apart from  the   flower   trimmed   creations    were shown    some  beautiful hate io all b ack hUck an I wnite and white  and   black,     th��*   latt-er   being    particularly    effective.     The greater number of the bats are   made   of  tulle   and   chiti��n    and   arw^.tery light in    weight,  which is a pleasant   feature to   the    wearer.     Aside  from the millinery, was a tii,e display   uf new   dress  materials,   blouses,   summer   muslins,   laditm*    anil  children's whitewear and drrH.-e*, embroidery,   lace*,  belts, etc.      The shirtwaist   styles   aie   prettier   and  ttioie vairied than  ever   this   year.

Pianos are s �� often made loonier to m itch the  decorations of a muxic-room that the replacing of  the maker's name, over the key-board, with the monogram orcre-t of the owner, is not, perhaps, wholly  -**rtS38^.N off(B"��'lve-���Ihe instrument becoming, in a way, a  possession representing individual taste. Still, the  custom does not commend itself, and savors too  much ot the use, now happily frowned upon, of dinner-sets so heavily monogrammed or crested that  every tiniest piece flaunts its ownership.  When Sousa, now famous the world over as king  of march mu.-ic, landed hi the "home of the free,"  he carried with him a valise on which was marked  in plain letters, " John Philipt-o, U.S. A."
