Peter would ride to the wedding—he would;
So he saddled his ass—and his wife,
She was to ride behind, if she could ;
says Peter, "the woman, she should
Follow, not lead through life."
" Ele'a mighty convenient, the atm, my dear,
And proper and safe; and now,
Yon hold liy the tail, while I hold by the ear,
And we'll ride to the kirk in time, never fear,
If the wind and the weather allow."
The wind and the weather were not to be Matted
But the as; had adopted the whim,
That two at a time was aloud never framed
For the bark of one ass, and he seemed quite
That two should stick fast upon him.
" Come,Dobbia," co Peter, thinking we'll
"Pm thinking we won't," says the ass,
In larmnage of conduct, and stuck to the spot
As If he had vowed be would sooner be shot
Than lift ape. toe front the grass.
Says Peter, says he. "rn whip him a little."
• Try it, my dear," says she.
But he might just sa.well have whipped a brass
The ass'made of such obstinate mettle
That never a step moved he.
"I'll prick him, my dear, with a needle," said she;
"I'm thinking he'll alter blaniind." '
Theme felt the needle, and np went his heels ;
"Pm thinking, says Peter, he beginning to reel
Some notion of moving—behind. • •
Now lend me the needle and rn prick his ear,
And set falterarid, too, *going."
.The ass felt the needle and upward he reared ;
But kicking and rearing was, all, it appeared,

I was harrying by. expreas mail 'one
Christmas to: meet a lady whore; at that
time, I was privileged,to call my Belinda.
Eyen' then that! [Areal* was .not strictly
aconmte fOr•she-was to be my. Belinda.
In short I was engaged to be married to
her; but this antic , pation of proprietor

lovers. All that, howevery'is now fithiair.

Metaphorical sense. such delicacy of mind
it was impossible not to add:fire and praise;
it signified a world of figure poesy; but
thin it made one's position almost precari
ous, and on more than one occasion some
unguarded allusion of-mine went nigh to
shipwreck everything. She told me indeed
candidly, "she thought 1 - was the.most re
fined and spiritual being she haul ever
met." This was'a little exaggerative, for
I cannot claim to more than my fellows
in this . department, and to say the truth,
rather enjoy a good rough speech. Bat
still I had to walk warily, .
We were about to make a expedi
tion and the train was to stop at a partic
ular station where Blinda and her mam
ma were to come in. Shall -I own it t I
felt not a little torvons at this meeting,
and Made my toilet with singular nicety.
It was the first occassion, too, on whitili I
"sported" (to nee the popular phrase) a
little prenuptial 'vrtricau, which, consider
ing that it touched rather' nearly on a
district marked dangerous, surprised me
not a little, I allude to a set of handsome
gold studs, aletye links, eta, emblaz
oned with my personal initials, which
were of course inextricably entangled to
gether, after the ',approved fashion. But
considering that the of these orna
ments is not far off from one of Belinda'sob
noxious words, it seemed a strange choice.
She no doubt looked at Wei:din a, as they
nestled in their. blue velvet case, like a
litter of newly-born puppies; for her
they were simply studs with no ulterior

There was- a benevolent looking head
that protruded from the'window close to

. great interest up
:the line. 'The Ova seized me—the very

"There is no danger," I repeated. "The
guard says it is a luggage van. Could
you oblige me with a pin ? or perhaps
there is a lady in the carriage—"
"Oh, I have no pin 1" he answered
"Where's this guard ?—seandulons 1"
The guard came running back much
blown. "All clear," ho cried, "all tight.
It ain't nothing."
I called to him, grown desperate, "&o

He thought I . going to show him
something in the:carriage, and he sprung.
on the step. "LoOlt here," I said hurried
ly, 'here's half a crown—only please do
da grt mo a-pin."
I was speaking in a language which is
intelligible, I beheve,to guards of all tribes
rind nations. The half crown was a mere
ward, bat uttered in the language of
money. lie saw and, understood, but-look
ed very strangely at me.
"'Alf a crown fur a pin!" he said with
gpt,such a thing." ( The
Impatient engine driver gave a sharp ex
posulating whistle) "But when we get
in II 'are one for you, sir, never fear.'
"It won't do," I said desperately; "ask
some, female, lady, I must have it
now. (Again a sharp remonstrance from
the engine man.) Five shillings," I said,
feeling in my waistcoat pocket, "shall be
,yours." Though he saw that I was a
queerish gentleman, the exhibition of the
two "alf er crowns" amounted to couvic-
tion, to the Most cogent argument he had
met with. Regardless of the interest of
.the train—a feature I have remarked in
officers of his elass.when thus tempted—!
&WV him on the step of en adjoining car

of the passengers.was unbounded. They
all thought it had something to do with

rage. "It's scanclulous 1 passengers' lives
are to be trilled with in this way. I'll write
to the company. Yonr'e not fit to be a
guard; running about taking money from

effrontery to his aid.

Finder Rings.
. . ,
Finger rings are of the greatest antiq
uity and ,of universal fashion. ,One of
the colossal figures of antiquity is &whiz,
or Cheops, King of Memphis, who during
his lifetimeeaused the Great Pyramid to
be built for his tomb. Every decree eon
.nected with the- building of the. Great
Pyramid, or with the thousands 'of men
employed onit,:was sealed with the signet
ring of Suphis. No otherring was ever
connected with such a vast - human - work.
The. Great Pyramid which may' have cast
its shadow over Alexander anti Catribyses,
still:points sunward, a monumi3nt Of man's
vaulty and power; and the - same ring
wbichtells ail its marvellopfistory'gleams
as brightly to-day as viten it glittered on
the baud of Cheops, more- than* three,
thousands years ago; This is -the ._most
valuable riu;of antiquity in the world.
This ring is in the highest state cif:Reser,
Tativ.. s -.Ent was tens - at utifen, in a
tomb near that excavation of • Colonel
Vyt.e's called Campbell's Tomb. It is of
flue gold. The style of the hiero-glyhics
is in perfect accordance with those in the
tombs about the Great'PYramid, and the
hieroglyhics within the oval -makes the
name of that Pharaoh of whom the - Pyr;
amid was the tomb.
Solomon was said to own a ring which
possessed mai, - ,4cal powers.. Pharaoh gave
a ring to Joseph, the. patriarch, as a sign
of his delegated outhority. 'When the
Roman ambassador required-the King of
Bithyniar to give Hannibal - up; -the Latter
on the point of the King's doing so, swal
lowed poisdn, which he always carried
about in his ring; Lillie. time of Alex
ander the Great it. was the custom= in
Athens to wear magnificent'- rings 'with
engraVed stones. It is. recorded that
Demosthenes wes fond of finger ring's.
The Romans collected *cases of:rings,
many of which are mentioned as being at
Rome; among tlieSe ' ties that 'Finch
Pompey the Great took from Mithridates,
and dedicated hi 'Jupiter in the. capital.

that of Augustus there was first a sphinx,
afterwards the image of Alexander the
treat; and at last his own, - which the sue

This Emperor's musical .vanity led him to
adopt it. When - the practice of defying
the princeiand heroes hecames general,
portraits of men took the place, of. more
ancient type. . This custom gave birth to
the cameo; when Greeks artists were en
couraged to settle in ' Rome in order to
supply the demand for these beantiful or
naments. Seneca . mentions a , ring set
with the head "of l'iberiiisin cameo. The
stones•principallY used , b,y the • Greeks and
Romans for cameo-petting- were :ii,gate,
onyx 'and the'lndian' sardonyx;-the latter
was most prized on account of variety of
tint in its . differentheds orlayera dud-the.

tained the largest °vial known to the an
cients, on accounts of which its posseisor
was proscribed by Mark Murk Antony: It.

'that the I:oinuns Wore them on the mid

nest examines the anatomical details of

vessel in his finger,'!..and that propaga

hands, we hate no greater reason to wear
our rings on the 1i ft then on the right,"
