we may well ask, was it possible for such a
weak, tender little creature to combat such a
powerful, mail-clad giant? What power had
she to do anything which could subject the
monster to even the slightest inconvenience or
molestation? Her ordinary resort, that of fet
tering and binding her victim by throwing her
threads of cobweb around it, it is plain, would
be of no more avail here than the cords upon
the limbs of the unshorn Sampson. A ware that
her accustomed mode of attack was useless,
how did she acquire the knowledge and sagacity
requisite for devising another, adapted so ex

the structure and habits of the serpent to aid
in rendering it successful? How was she able
to perceive that it was in her power to wind a
loop of her threads around this creature's throat,
despite of all his endeavors to foil her in this
work a loop of sufficient strength to hold him
securely, notwithstanding his struggles and
writhiugs, until by her tackle-like power she
could gradually hoist him up from the floor,

adroit little heroine actually performed a feat
beside which all the fabled exploits of Hercules
in overpowering lions and serpents and dragons
sink into utter insignificance! And who can

thought, reasoning, a careful weighing of all
the difficulties and dangers, and a clear percep

possessed the ability to accomplish what she

much higher order than the mere instinct which

'these lower animals in their movements.'
I By what artifice the spider was able in the

of the serpent, from the top of which a single
thread was carried upward and attached to the
homo, is the mania for turning me portion of
their house into a storeroom of'plendid and
unused furniture, which appears m Le kept
merely to look at. The costliest furniture their
husband's purses can achieve is selected and
carefully stored in this sacred room, and us
carefully locked in. "Charley" tnd the baby
re allowed only distant, and rare glimpses of
the enchanted region. Even "papa's" mudoy
boots are forbid entrance across the charmed
threshold. Here are eternally concealed luxu
rious sofas, carefully clothed in brown helland,
levant chairs in ditto, planted stiffly againfct
the walls; a forbidding looking centre table, on
which are arranged, by square rule, a few books
intended only to be looked at, not read; some
shining gilt frames the pictures of which ore
dimly visible through the darkened windows,
and innumerable mantel and other orameni,
with the mossy carpet, where all sorts of kal
eidoscope fancies are struggling in unbroken
twilight, complete the funereal appointments or
this room, which, like Bluebeard's "blue cham
ber," is the forbidden apartment of the house.
In this room is no heart-warmth no humanizing
influence that shall remind you of the joys of
the domestic hearth, none of that easy,
careless disposition of social articles of every
day use which endears one sympathetically to
the spot called home. All is stiff, solemn, coin
and forbidding. A grand display of furniture
too nice to use, and useless ornaments too
elegant to be touched. Those who furmsn the
means to purchase the fnmiture so watchfully
guarded, and to pay the rent of the sealed
rooms, may be a little-inqaisitive sometimes as
to the utility of such a freak on tbc part ot tlieir
better halves; but they are told the roop is
reserved for that mysterious party entitled
company," and as these lords of the creation
are in the main good natured and lndnigent
to their wives'" numerous little eccentricities
they are easily pacified, and the closed forbiu-din-
furniture wareroom continues closed and
