Saved by Hope.
^ 0 aie saved by hope. Never man
hoped too much, or repented that he
had hoped. The plague is that we
don’t hope in God hull enough. Hope
never hurt any one—never yet in-
terfered with duty; nay, it always
strengthens to the performance of
fluty, gives courage, and clears the
judgment. Hope is the most rational

Why Russian Names Are Long.
’I often hear Americans make fun
of the long Russian names," said Dr
George L. Alexis Hamilton, a Rus-
sian physician. "Let me tell you why
ihese names are long when spelled
out in the English language. It is
because you have not enough letters
in your alphabet. In Russian there
are 30 letters. In translating a proper
noun li is often necessary to use
three or four English letters to ex^
press the sound of one Russian letter
So sometimes a name that if written
iu Russian would be as short as
‘Smith’ will be almost an inch long
when spelled out in English.”

Not Even Sultan Exempt.
On one occasion when the famous
Nasr-ed-din was pressed for money he
went to the sultan for permission to
levy a tax of a penny on every man in
Turkey who was afraid of his Wife.
The sultan gave him leave, and at the
end of a few months Nasr-ed-din re-
turned with a hundred mules laden
with-gold. "But what am i to get out
of all this? inquired the sultan. “I
have brought you a beautiful Georgian
slave," replied the sage. “Hush!”
said (he sultan, glancing over his
shoulder. Don’t let my wife hear!”
And the wily Nasr-ed-din Hedja added
another pejuy to his store.

Where Webster Drew the Line.
In the New York Times "W. O. B.”
of Newton, Mass., says that in his li-
brary is the following letter from Dan-
iel Webster in answer to a request
that he take a certain case for a con-
tingent fee. I do not desire employ-
ment in professional matters, although
I do sometimes engage in them. But
I never engage on contingencies niere-
ly, for that would make me u xner°
party fo a lawsuit. D. W. ”
