but to no avail. The man, dreading that
upon the artist's ret urn he would lose
his position, was inconsolable. Tbe girl
begged to be allowed to repair the piece,
and after repeated entreaties the man
consented, with the remark that while
he did not believe it conld be fixed, he
hwas very certain she could not injure it.
He mixed the clav for ber, and watched

drainage. Much of surface water, in

Antiquity of i'loylu Cards.
The game of cards was first played in
tbe east, and seems to have had a mili
tary origin. Cards were introduced
from Asia into Europe at tbe tune of the
Crnsade, and were first used by necro
mancers to foretell fortunes. They soon
became a popular amusement in the
south of Europe, where tbe Saracens
and Moors taught the people how to use
them, and card playing spread to all
parts of the continent. The state records
of vtirmany mention the fact that Ku
dulph 1, in was f ond of the game
and played with his courtiers.
After the invention of paper the manu
facture of cards became extensive, but
docliued somewhat when card playing
was forbidden by several of the Qermau
states and by tbe English government
tm account of the supposed immoral
tendency. Before the era of paper, cards
in the Orient were made of ivory, papy
rus and canvas, less frequently of the
precious metals, and quite commonly of
wood. lit Louis (ilobe-Democrat.
