Bint Birmingham goes one better in two of the gargoyles that adorn the Church of St. George, Whceler Street When the church wan built many years ago, two of the stonemasona employed .on the carving quarrelled, and finally 'had a stand-np fight, which ended in one of the men hav ing a klack eye, and the other a broken nose. Like geoon Englishmen, the men, having nettled their dilfer ences, again became last friends, anti in order to commemorate the event they carved two figaren, which still ornament the windows facing Tow'r Street, one with a handage arountd its eye, and the other with a big panster across its nose.

There wan to he a piece for four pianos, and the amateur was to play one of the instruments. I was the leader. I thought Ruhen stein would have a fit when I told him that the amateur couldn't plely three straight notes. 'He is scre to throw us all out,' said I, " and ruin the performance.' " Rubenstein swore like a mnajor, hut 'twas no good. The bills were out and he must keep faith, even if the gift of the hall for the night was no consideration to him. "At last I hit on an idea.

SUCH WIVES MAY RULE. -Wom6n who aspire to control the. husbands should remember that the men who are most thoroughly under wIfely influence are generally those who least susp'ct it. To achieve this result requires a great. deal of tact, patience, and selt control, and the woman who possesses these qualities shows by the same fact' that she is fitted to act as the control lIng influence in her'husband's life. But it is always wiser for the wo man who aspires to guide her husband to do so unobtrustvely, so that to the outsIde world she appears to be fol lowing meekly in the wake of her lord and master. while illr the time she ia sctsalfr: Eth.e--zower- -behladfth.l throne."

The Italian of the poorer class ties up his little fortunl in a gaily-coloured handkerchief, which he hides abolt his...
