Mrs. Roger Hayne, cow of St. Louis, but
a natire of Ireland, reared and educated in
Chicago, has had a most remarkable expe

fore the next meal is due.
When a young married woman, Mrs.
i Hayne moved to St. Louis and soon be
came active in the charitable work organ
) laed by the ladies there. In her visits
among the poor she saw the need of a home
for working women who had grown too old
to support themselves by labor and yet
uad no mends to rely on. bbe prayed and
talked to her friends, and so Bethesda, as
the home is called, was provided for and
was opened June 8, 1889, Mrs. Hayne had
but $140 to start on, so the home was fur
nished with extreme plainness, but life
there was made so pleasant tbat it was
soon full. An annex for foundlings was
soon added, and to that a sort of maternity
The place rented for the old ladies was
an old homestead, and a very agreeable
one, and two buildings have been added for
the other purposes. Many hundreds have
been aided in various ways. Friendless and
destitute children have been provided with
good homes in the country, young mothers
in distressed circumstances have received
succor till they could again work for a liv
ing, and many old ladies have received a
permanent home. Yet there is no formal
organization, no large gifts have been re
ceived, and Bethesda numbers no very
wealthy people among its patrons. Every
child who goes out thence to a home and
does well is a sort of unconscious mission
ary in aid of Bethesda, and every mother
helped there stirs up some one to encourage
The old htdies' home is a curiosity in its
way, them being no rules whatever except
the law of peace. The homes are entirely
free. The Bethesda Herald, a monthly de
voted to the interests of foundlings, old
people and destitute mothers, is published
by Mrs. Hayne in connection with her work
and gives a history of the daily life at the
homes. Mrs. Hayne has many other pleas
ant qualities besides charity, as she is a
delightful conversationist, with a sweet,
earnest manner and generally attractive
appearance, no doubt her personal quail
ties have much to do with the success of
Bethesda, but she insists that it is run by
faith. She does her work and prays for
support, not doubting that it will come,
and so far it has not failed to come.

The Fabulous Hn.lllik
The basilisk was the most famous of
the many fabulous monsters of medivav
val folklore. According to the popular
notion it was hatched by a toad from an
egg laid by the cock of the common
barnyard fowl! In the ancient picture
books it was usually represented as an
eight limbed serpent or dragon, some
times with and sometimes without
wings. Its name is derived from basil
iscos, meaning a little king, and was ap
plied because the creature was figured
with a circle of white spots on its head
which much resembled a crown. The
cockatrice, a species of basilisk, besides
having a crown possessed a comb which
was an exact counterpart of the cock's.
Pliny assures us that the basilisk had
a voice which "struck terror to the
hearts of men, beasts and serpents."
The Bible classes it with the lion, the
serpent and the dragon as one of the most
formidable creatures. Old writers,
Pliny, Bascho and others, say that Its bite
was mortal m every case: that its breath
was suffocating, and that no plant would
grow in the vicinity of its lair. Its dead
body was otten used, suspended in bel
fries, to prevent swallows from building
