By FRANCIS LYNDE, CHAPTER VIII:-(Continued.) He pushed the tormenting thoughts aside and brought himself down with a jerk to the presen* and its demands. ' I am not going 'to dispute with the weak-kneed devil any .more,' he muttered ; 1 tho first thing to do is to get out of hore, and then I'll leave it to her : if she honours mo enough to make me her defender, I'll make shift to fight her battles if I havo to hire somo,,ono to hold me while I do it.' ^ Under tho inspiration of this conclusion he went to work patiently and resolutely, trying the first plan that suggested itself. Using his knife for a chisel, ho attempted to out niches for hand and footholds in tho wall, persevering until both blades of tho small tool were worn down to useless stumps. \Yhen tho failure of the knife put an ond to the expedient, ho examined the narrower part of tho crevice to see if ho could not climb to tho roof by bracing himsolf from wall to wall.

A SCENT WHICH HAS LASTED A THOUSAND YEARS. The mosque of St. Sophia, iu Constant- inople, is remarkable, among other things, for tho fragranoe of musk whioh continues through the ages, though it is never renewed.

The seeming mystery is a bimple one ; it is that the brinks and stones whioh were used in the building of this great fane wore all laid in mortar whioh was mixed with a solution of musk.

In this way tho shoo is ventilated and the per- spiration escapes as vapour, while at the samo time the foot is completely protooted ; from damp duo to rain and other causes, as i well as from dust or mud. To prevent the perforations becoming stopped up by blaok I ing or varnish tho loather should be well brushed with a dry brush.
