The Law of Kindiess. A regiment quartered at a certain town in Scotland had among them an expert gymnast, .who taught his brother subalterns how to walk' across the barrack-room on their hands. While thus engaged one evening, the door opened, and the colonel, a stern disci plinarian, entered the room, and looked attentively at the inverted company, shook his head gravely, ..and departed without uttering a word.
