From that time he began to preach in public enormous success, and declared himself to bo the "Bab," i. e., the "door," through which onearriveth at the knowledge of God. The Islam priests could no longer ignore the agitation agitation caused by this young preacher, so having been ignommiously defeated by him at a public conference, they arranged an appeal appeal to tho civil power. Bab and his followers followers suffered persecution, and this proved the beginning of tho spread of Eabism.

During the winter the peasants are not so busy as when planting and gathering their crops. 1\ hen the snow lies thick on the fields the men thrash out the grain and tho women spin and weave the flax, which they grow themselves.

Tho spot marked out for the experiment experiment is tlie site of tho 1SS1 exhibition in Hyde Park. There would be a staircase round the hole, a shaft in the center and the whole would be lighted by electricity. In each strata there should bean excavated mu- seunv with specimens of the minerals, fossils etc. This would settle the question as to a coal deposit under London, also supposing tho granite to be of aqueous formation. By cutting through it we should roach tho floor of the earth, and it it should be found that the precious metals are found en masse, we should startle the world as did Christopher Columbus of old. Many other interesting questions as to the increasing weight and heat of the air, as to tho state of the earth's center, tho utilization of hot springs, the cause of volcanoes and earthquakes, etc., etc., might be satisfactorily answered.--London answered.--London Fireside News. the the and the and four nor.

They earn a pittance in the summer which barely enables them to eke out an existence through Ih« winter. Their life seems almost unendurable, but it appears so to the stranger only.

A sick palate is beyond the reach of physic. Uneasy fits the coat the stomach pays for When dinner and appetite fall out it is tune for arbitration. The first lesson in dyspepsia is a surprise to him who thinks he knows everything. There is little choice between a dinner with no appetite and an appetite with no dinner. Poverty is an unpleasant dose, but it would bo a sure remedy for many ills of the rich. Mix your remembrance of a good dinner »tth a little gratitude to heaven and the host. True charity warms the heart, of him that gives and him that takes; tho other sort is more chilling than cold soup. The life of the dinner lieth in deliberation; tho death of the diner may lurk in the hick of it.

The New Religion That I« Wrestliiiu wltli tlie Faith of Islam. The following is a brief but genuine account account of the origin, growth and present status ot the new religion called Babism, a form of faith which, we are assured by Jean Cahagnet, a writer and traveler just returned from Persia, seems likely ere long to supersede supersede all the other forms of belief prevailing in that land. M. Cahagnet kindly translated and furnished the editor with the followm" sketch from the forthcoming work on the religious religious beliefs of Persia: one was once more on tho top.

Hits of Wisdom. Homely people make tho best friends. The more wealth a man has the louder his children talk. No girl likes to be seen carrying a corset- box on the street. A loafer has no right that a busy man is bound to respect. When a man sees a door marked "Private" he wants to open it. You can't realize how few dollars there are in a $5 bill until you break it. When you see some children you nt once begin to doubt the good sense of their parents. Carry a dollar and a nickel in a pocket with o hole in it and you will lose the dollar and save the nickel. Thu beauty of having children in the house is that whenever you want small change you cau alivays find it in the children's bank. A woman believes that there is nothing that the Lord will forgive more readily than the sewing of a button on an angry husband's shirt Sunday. We feel borry for a boy.

Fortunately for the progress of tho world, the founder, Mirza All-Mohammed, seems to have been in advance advance of both Judaism and Islamism, having having imitated neither the intolerance and self righteousness of the former nor the fatalistic creed of the latter. This must be attributed to the character of its founder, who, when only 18 years of age, began his missionary work for which he was qualified by natural genius also by earnest inquiry into tho Scriptures the Koran, and by discussion with the Jews of his country. He is described as a young man of imposing imposing aspect and charming features, gainins the admiration of his hoarers by his personal attractions and the charuiof his eloquence.
