Tbcre was an air of intelligeace about the woman'a face notin accordanco with her cccupation, apparel, or soilcd hands. The impression was confirmed on conversinpf with her, and I was astouished to think she could not gain a living by sorae higher occupation than building a wall. "Would bhe be kind cnougti to writo her name for me ?" "Yes. Would I walk into her houfe? It was close by." "I (lid not liko to take her from her work." "Oh, ehe had plenty of time." We entered a neat cottage, plainly furnished and well supplied with books. 1 was now more puzzled than ever. She produccd a hirge book and asked mo to write my name I glunced over the pages aud eaw Frencli Counts, Germán Barons, Kussian Prince?, Irish and English Lords and Duke, aod Francia Josoph, Emperor of Austria. Sho wroto her name on a card, tho "Prineess do Is Tour d'Auvcrgne." Sbe oblained grunt from the Sultan of the piece of ground whercon Clirist taught the Lord's Prayer, and is erec'mg a temple on if, at her own expense, w! i h will contaiu tbis'praycr in cvery language.
