It would be hard to.say how It originated, but It if probable that It was originally Intended as a sacrifice to Neptune, the god of the sea; as on land the gods-were propitiated by thq offerings of the devout, so Jock sought to calm the •es god's ire by offering him a cat. The old sailor, even in this advanced' age, regards the -pat as a veritable weather gauge. The old landsman is often puzzled to account for some of the strange sea terms, and questions are often aakec as to the meaning of the word "catspaw.

There Were In it an Infinitesimal dlniug room, ii drawing room of the same dimensions, nnd a garden wherein two cats might have a chance of swinging one another. On the first floor there was a jedroom about the size of a large band- XJX, and several other holes which were also designated by tho landlord and the concierge aa chambers. His father, the Alexander the Great of fiction, used to visit him In this place, and when dining with him on one hot July evening facetiously told him to open tho door of the sallo a manger BO us to air thrf*'garden.
