THE YELLOW E03E3.
Ono evening, about two years ago, I
went to spend a couple ot Hours witu
mv dear old friend and neiirlibor, Mad-
amo do Lorccrel. Aware of her ex-
trcino fondness for flowers, I took
with mo a bunch of yellow roses, her
especial favorites. On this evening,
as on many another, I found her with
an old gentleman, who had about a
year before como into that neighbor
hood to take possession of an adjoin
ing property, left him by a distant rel
ntivo on condition ho would change
his name to that of Dcscoudrais. I
was quite iealous of the intimacy that
soon had sprung up between him and
my dear old iriend.
On the evcninK in nnesuon thoy

entered soitly so ns not to oisturb
them, and waited until tho game was
over to present ray roses. Madame do
Lorgerei's faco was brightened with
genuine delight, out to my astonish
ment, Monsieur Descondraies became
most strangely abstracted and thought
ful. 'Would you believe it, my friend,"
lie said, at length, ''thoso flowers havo
ovoked, as if by enchantment, a whole
epoch of my youth. For a few mo
inents I was again twenty years of
are and in lovo with a woman, who, if
living, must now bo fully sixty years
old. I will tell you tlio whole story,
ono that influenced my whole after
life even now, when old age has left
mo barely energy enough to play at
nc-trac, tho remembrance ot my
youthful lovo fills mo with emotion.''
"Uver lurty years ago, inst alter 1
had loft college, my father, without
consulting me, sought to obtain a post
for mo in a certain regiment quartered
in the little town of X , for which
place I received orders to depart at
once. Tins was distressinj' news lor
more than one reason ; I had no
necial love for the armv. thoiiL'h that
objection was no great one, as at that
time of my life tho inero sight of a gay
umtorm, or the sound ot martial music,
sutliced to iiro my ambition into be
coming a Ctusnr or an Achilles. But,
worst of all, 1 was in love, and dared
not tell my father, whoso answer, I
knew, would havo been an order has
tening my departure. Fortunately, I

that timo he was as old ns I am now,
though still retaining all tho vigor and

"Uncle, 1 am most unhappy.'
"I bet twenty louis you aro not 1"
"Ah, unolo, do not nest besides you

Horseshoes for Luck.
"Tho nrincinal catewav at Allaha
bad is thickly studded with horseshoes
every hizo and make. There aro
uudreds of them nailed all over tho
rt al gales, doubtless tho offerings of
many a wayfarer who tins long since
finished his earthly pilgrimage. Wo
could not lind out what was tho oxact
lea connected with tUU custom
irobnbly much tho samo notion of luck
as wo attach to finding a horseshoe,
xpecially onu with tho old nails still
n their place. Wo afterward noticed
that tho sacred gates of Som-
ath, preserved in the Fort at Agra,
aro similaily adorned. It reminded us
t that curious old manorial rito still
ept up at Oakham, in Rutlandshire,
hero every peer of tho realm is bound
the first titnd ho enters tho town to
ircsent a horseshoe to bo nailed on tho
old portal, which is well-nigh covered
with these lordly tributes. It Is said
that in caso any contumacious peer
should refuse to pay this tax the au
thorities havo a right to stop his car
liayo nnd levy their black-mail by un
shoeing one of tho horses. To avert
so serious an annoyance tho tribute
Hhoo is generally ready, porno being of
iiormous sizj and inscribed with tlio
namo of tho donor. Whether these
iastcrn horshoes were taxes or offer-
ngs 1 cannot tell, but it certainly is
,'ory curious to observe how widespread
is tho superstitious reverence attached
to this particular form. It has been
suggested, and apparently with sonio
cason, that m ancient pagan limes it
may havo been a recognised symbol in
serpent-worship, nnd hence may havo
arisen its common uso as a charm
against all manner of evil. The resem
blance is obvious, more especially to
that species of harmless snako which is
rounded at both ends, so that tho head
and tail aro apparently just alike, Tho
creaturo moves backward or forward
it pleasure ; hence tho old belief that it
actually had two heads and was indo
structible, as even when cut into two
parts it wns supposed that the divided
leads would seek one another and re
unite. It stands to reason that in a
snake-worshiping community such a
creature would be held ifihigh rever
ence. Jiven in Scotland, various an
cient snako-liko bracelets and orna
ments havo boon found which seems to
favor this thcory,and at a very early per
iod botli snakes" and horseshoes Becm to
have been engraven as symbols on sa
cred stones. We hear of tho latter
laving been sculptured not only on tho
threshold of old London houses, but
oven on that of ancient churches in va-
ious parts of Britain. And in tho
present day wo all know tho idea of
luck connected with finding one, and
how constantly thoy are nailed up on
houses, stables, and ships as a charm
against witchcraft. In Scotland, all
parts of England, and Wales, and es
pecially in Cornwall, (whero not only
on vans and omnibusus, but sometimes
oven on the grim old gates of the old
an,) wo may lind this curious trace ot
uicient superstition. Whatever may
mvo been its oritrin. it ccrtamlv is re
markable that it should survive both in
Jritain and Hindustan. The Gentle

of tablets covered with very small

used lor ono book, tho first lino of tho
tablet following was written at tho

writing on tho tablets was, of course,
dono when tho clay was soft, nnd then
it was baked to harden it. Then oaoh
tablet or book was numbered and as
signed to a placo in tho library with

The Two Interesting Operations Performed
on a Hospital Patient.
There was performed at tho Phila
delphia Hospital last week tho second
of two curious surgical operations.
Early in January Anthony Weaver, a
forty-vear-old Swiss carpenter, was ad
mitted to tho hospital, sintering from a
tumor in the throat. Whilo tho tu
mor did not prevent tho reception of
liquid food breathing was almost im
possible. To relievo the stricture
tracheotomy was performed, au inci
sion being mado in tho trachea and a
tubo inserted, 'through this tube tho
patient has breathed for nearly six
months. Hecently a new complica
tion appeared. An unlooked-for im
pediment in tho throat prevented tlio
passago of oven liquid food into the
stomach. In this emergency a consul
tation was held by tho staff and Drs.
,i annoy, raucoast, White. Porter nnd
ltoberts performed what is known as
gastrotomy. An incision was mado in
tho abdomen nnd tho abdominal walls
and tho stomach wero sowed together.
Into tho incision a silver tubo was in-
sorted. Goodwill bo passed into tho
man's stomach through tho tube. The
caso has attracted considerable atten
tion and tho result of tlio latter opera
tion is awaited with considerable in
torcst by physicians. There Is now nt

All About the Mosquito.
Somebody, writing about tho mos
quito, gives a sort of sketch of its hab
its, as follows : Just about this timo
of tho year tho mosquito reaches ma
turity, and is entitled to nil tho rights
of American citizenship. Thoso who
havo mado a study of tho bird tell us
that it is born in April. It spends ils
infancy preparing for tho .battlo of life.
During tho first month of its oxistenco
it lies in complcto idleness, giving n
chnnco for its claws and stinger to
grow and for a copper lining to form
over its stomach, During the second
month it indulges in athletic exercises
and in cultivating its voice, and at tho
end of tho month is ablo to fly in thir
teen diHeront directions nt tho samo
timo and to sing like n, lark. It spends
its third month testing its stinger on
tho railroad track, nnd when it is ablo
to plungo the instrument of torturo in
to tho iron, spread it and pull out a
piece of iron witli it, the animal is ready
for notivo business. Its modo of at
tack is a treacherous one. It hovors
about tho back of your neck until it
gets everything in shape, then it darts
around the corner, and with a wild
shriek sinks its stinger into your face,
and although you claw at it immedi
ately it is gone, together with a gill of
blood and a big piece of your skin.
The Weapons of the Soudanese
Harry Menges, who should bo an au
thority, sends tho Cologno Gazette a
dissertation from Aden on tho various
weapons employed iu tho Soudan.
Both kinds of spears aro thrusting
weapons, not javelins, and rarely used
as such. That of the maratimo tribes,
who composed Osman Digna's forces,
is about six feet long. In tho districts
round Kordofan it gives way to a long
lance, nearly threo times tho length.
But, of course, the two-handed sword,
which is often tho heirloom of genera
tions, is the mosl universal arm. Herr
Menges, it is pleasant to find, believes
in tho comfortablo tradition that sever
al of these havo been hauded down
from tho Crusading times, which un
doubtedly supplied tho model. But
tho majority of the blades unquestion
ably aro exported from Solingen, fa
mous for foils. Tho shields aro of
hide, and are always considered proof
against spear thrusts, and, therefore,
certainly against tho quick snatch-and-recovery
now in vogue with the bayo
nets, instead of tho lutigo home. Pall
