The Mw Tn te Moon.
According to Pratorius, tbo man In
the moou is tho Patriarch Isaac carry
ing the bundle of Btieks which were to
be lighted to sacrifice his own body on
the mountain top. Dante believes him
to be Coin, carrying a bundle of thorns,
the meanest ottering his lands afforded,
as a present to God. In Iceland the peo
ple claim that they can see the face of
Adam in the moon and that of Eve in
the sun. Among the Frieburgers there
is a superstition which says that the
mam and spots on the moon's face are
the outlines of the traitor, Judas Isosr-
iot, holding his hand over his face while
sneezing just prior to hanging himself.
This last belief accords with the old
Prankish legend, which says that there
was no spot on Luna's bright face until
after the time of the crucifixion of
Christ. Still another story tells us that
in the time of the creation God threw
un offending angel against the face of
the moon, while another is to the effect
that the moon witnessed the creation of
Adam and Eve and took an impress of
their features on his surface, intending
to people bis own land with similar be
ings. When he essayed to imitate God's
works, he made nothing but a slimy ser
pent, which since that day has contin
ue to fold and nnfold its mighty coils
in full view of the descendants of the
God created beings. St. Louis Repub

The late Henry L. Lipman of Phila

regarding the early nse of envelopes in
this country: "About 1842 unguinmed en

new importation from France, anil I was
the first to begin their manufacture in
this country. Shortly afterward I im
proved them by adding gum to the flaps,
ma the gummed envelopes I made were
the first which had been seen anywhere,
and the first envelopes of any kind used
by the United States government were
made by me. The demand at first was
very small. Envelopes were as difficult
to introduce as any new invention or im
provement is at the present time, and
they were considered only as a tempo
rary fad wnicn would soon go ont of
fashion again. That is the reason I did
not patent or push them very hard, espe
cially as I had a good trade in seals and
sealing wax and feared that envelopes
would interfere with them. At first
they were only used for business pur
poses, and it was some time before they
were employed in social correspondence,

Every story has two ways of being told,
