We have gotten nowadays so
that we divide lies into white lies and
black lies, society lies, business lies,
and so on. The Word of God knows
no such letting down of standard. A
lie is a lie, no matter what are the
circumstances under which it is ut-
tered or by whom. I have heard that
in Siam they sew up the mouth of a
confirmed liar. I am afraid if that
was the custom in this land a good
many would suffer. There is a prov-
erb: “A lie has no legs.” It requires
other lies to support it. Tell one lie
and you are forced to tell others to
back it up.—D. L. Moody.

Hashish may be reckoned one of
drug referred to by Homer as “the
assuager of grief” in the house of
Menelaus. Bayard Taylor's account
of his sensations on first taking it at
Damascus is memorable. It put him
in a state of mental exaltation where-
in all sensations as they arose sug-
gested more or less coherent images
in a double form, one physical, the
other spiritual, and the latter reveal-
ing itself in a series of indescribably
brilliant metaphors. A few minutes
after taking the drug he found him-
self at the foot of the Great Pyramid.
A wish instantly transported him to
its summit, far above the palm groves
and wheat fields of Egypt. Then, look-
ing down, he observed that the pyra-
mid was not built of stone, but of gi-
gantic blocks of “plug” tobacco! For
a moment he writhed in a perfect par-
discovery. Then his senses were rav-
ished with delicious perfumes, and
there came to his ears divine melodies
might have dreamed. Time and space
seemed vastly extended, so that a min-
ute seemed an hour and an hour a
year, while his friends in the same
room with him seemed miles away, as
though he were viewing them through
a reversed telescope.

A very large gold nugget is said to
have been found the other day in a
wild bee’s nest in Australia. The story
seems likely enough, for Australia has
yielded all the really monster nuggets
to date—the “Welcome” weighed
2,195 troy ounces and was valued at
$43,500—and one of the biggest was
discovered by a prospector who
stubbed his toe against a projeeting
angle of it.
On the Wind river Indian reserva-
tion, in Wyoming prospectors look for
grains of gold brought to the surface
of the ground by ants. And in Ari-
zona anthills are a common source
of excellent garnets which ard
fetched to the surface by the industri-
ous insects.
