who highly admired those virtues, which
he considered it impossible to imitate, one
day asked the prelate if he could tell him
the secret of being always at ease. "Yes,"
replied the old man, I can teach you my
secret, and will do so very readily. It
consists in nothing more than in making
great use of my eyes." His friend begged

placed inside the drum turning it by hi-

pruduced Mr. Peekover drives two up

saw and two turning lathes for wood,

Newfoundland dogs, for this woi k and has
trained them for it admirably. 1'y a word
