Tha farmer took the ring, placed it

a town where a jeweler sat in his shop
behind a counter, on which lay many
costly ringa for sale. Tbe farmer showed
his own and asked the merchant its
"It isn't worth a straw," the jeweler
anawered. 1 '
Upon that tha farmer laughed very
heartily, and told the man thut it was a
wish rlncr. and of areator value than all
the rings in the shop together. ,
The jeweler was a wioaeu, ueuguuig
man, and eo he invited tbe farmer to re
main as his guest over night, "For," he
explained, "only to shelter a man who
owns a wish-ring muaf bring luck."
So he treated his guest to wine and
fair words, and that night, aa the farmer
lay sound asleep, the wicked man stole
tha msgio ring from his finger and
slipped on, in its place, a common one
whioh he had made to resemble the wish

Tim nAit morning the leweler was all
impationoe to have the farmer begone.
He awakened him at cock-orow, and
said: "You had bettor go, for you have

A unnn u thn furmnr hud deo.irted the
jeweler cloBed his shop, put up the shut

the middle of the room, he turned the

No sooner said than the great shining

The farmer a wile, oi oourse, prouoruu

enough to buy the ooveted Btrip of land,

It is still in the constellation in which it
was first noticed, and is making but
slow progress acrosa the heavens, and
but alowly inoressingin brightness. Its
further path, from its present position
in the northwest heavens, will be across

reach perihelion, tho point in its orbit
