An efficiënt but ïlliterate domestio iervant waa brought into serious but happily not fatal dañger by ber undue confidence in the deductivo system of leasoning. This woman, being unable to read, had long been accustomed to discriminate between the different varieties of canned vegetables which her employer supplied not by the names printed on the labels, but by the picfrures which they bore.

Immediately she reasoned out that the bottle contained a medicine for complaining bones, and she proceeded to take a heroic dose of its contenta. Two doctors and a stomach pump saved the woman 's life, but -she no longer sees unity of design in the universo, and her trust in logic is igone forever.-
