At. last he hit on a plan. He ordered hiB servants to bring him a slice of meat (placed between bread, that he might not soil his Angers). Thus he was able to satisfy his hun ger and continue his game at the same time. TOE OOKD1AN KNOT. • "To cut the Gordian knot" has come to mean to find some way out of an apparently insuperable difficulty When Gordius tied his waggon to a beam so tightly that no one could undo the knot, Alexander the^Great (who had heard that he who undid tho knot would become King) simply cut it with his sword. TO "BURN YOUR, BOATS." When Caesar crossed the River Ru bicon, he had passed out of his own province of Gaul, and had begun to invade Italy. Therefore, to cross the Rubicon means to take some course j of action from which there can be no j turning back—in other words, "to...

The Useful-Toad. The toad has always been looked upon as loathsome, even poisonous. Yet modern medical research is. ex-, tracting from toadekins remedies cf the greatest value, and the bene ficent possibilities of these secretions have by no means been exhausted. Quack remedies have long been made from the skins of toads, and the Chi nese still use such an extract, callcd "Ben6o," as a cure for dropsy. A well-known remedy- among the New England colonists for sprains and rheumatism was a toad ointment made as follows : Four good-Bizcd live toads ; put into boiling water and cook very soft ; then take them out and boil the water down to half a pint, and add fresh churned unsalt ed butter, lib., and simmer together; at the last add tincture of arnica, 2oz.

From this secretion is also J obtained a blood-pressu...
