The joble lady has written for an English eriodical publication an account of sorae remarkable recoveries of lost property. In one case a valuable ring i was lost. Years afterwards, when a flcor was removed, the jor6i was found wedged tightly around the neck of the skeleton of a monse. The ring had fallen through a crack in the fioor; the inouse, half-grown at the time, had thrust its head into it; had thus been ] caught, and had grown until it was : Btrangled. Another case: A gentleman shot and wounded a sand-piper, which, fluttering across a pond, was ! seized and devoured by a pike. That i afternoon the sportsman's brother, while fishing in the pond, caught a pike in whose atomach was found the identical sand-piper. Another case: A lady who was visit:rg a relativo lost a flng. Six years after, while visiting the same person, then living in a far distant locality, she slipped her hand ; thoughtlessly intü a recess of the chair ! she was sitting in and found the missing ring. Anothev case: A lady supped at a royal baJl, and one of the golden spoons lodged, unknown f o her, in one of the pockets formert by the [ plaits on the front of her cross. The following year, in presentatiou lo the queen, she wore the same gcwn. As she bent in courtesying the plsit opened, and out feil the missing spoon at her sovereign's feet.
