Bob and myself, who rode together. We looked very funny, no doubt, for the drivers kept in line almost all the time. We drove past the Emperor's winter palace, which contains five hundred rooms. It is an immense orange-covered building, with statues on the top all the way around. Since then I have been through one hundred and eighty of these rooms, and I do not think it is nearly so fine as the summer palace of Katherine II., at Tsarkos Selo, which is a spacious building, profusely gilded on the inside, and was formerly decorated on the outside with gold leaf, which is now almost entirely replaced by bronze. In one room the chandeliers are made of pure crystal, and the walls of another room are entirely covered with amber, while the floor is mahogany inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The church, which is under the same roof, is ornamented with lapis lazuli. In the palace is a room elegantly fitted up for a gymnasium. Among other things is a highly polished, inclined plane, upon which the imperial children coasted on bits of carpet. The guide allowed Rob and myself to slide down five or six times.
I think the little Russians must have a hard time learning their alphabet, as it contains thirty-six instead of twenty-six letters. Rob and I are able to spell out some of the signs as we pass by.

he bought (4) Psalms, cxxxii. 15; (5) 1 Kings, xvii. 13. From the butcher he bought (6) Luke, xv. 23: (7) Genesis, xxii. 8.
His mother had also marked a passage (8) Hebrews, xiii. 22. Where did he go?
One of the cooking utensils had been broken, and, to replace it, a word had been marked in (9) Leviticus, vii. 9. Some other things had to be replaced, and Hans's mother marked the last word in (10) Judges, v. 25, and a word in (11) Genesis, xl. 11. Hans also found marked the last three words in (12) Exodus, xxxix. 37. In case this could not be had, he was to buy something mentioned in (13) Matthew, v. 15, which would answer the same purpose.
After doing his errands, Hans returned to the grocer's for his parcels, and feeling warm and thirsty, he pointed to (14) 2 Samuel, xxiii. 15. The grocer pointed to (15) 1 Timothy, v. 23. This Hans refused; but he was grateful when a glass of something mentioned in (16) Hebrews, v. 12 was handed to him. To express his gratitude he pointed to one word in (17) 1 Thessalonians, v. 18, and then, turning to (18) Ruth, ii. 10, he marked the latter half of the verse.
The grocer, pleased with the lad's intelligence, gave him a handful of the two articles last named in (19) Genesis, xliii. 11, and some of the fruit mentioned in (20) Jeremiah, xxiv. 2.
Hans was so delighted with his success that on his return, when his mother sent him to call the men to dinner, Hans wished to carry the Bible with him, that he might point to three words in (21) John, xxi. 12. This his mother would not allow him to do, although he gave as his reason (22) Exodus, iv. 10. Reference to the last word in (23) Exodus, iv. 2 brought him to instant obedience, and he meekly pointed to the parenthesis in (24) Exodus, ix. 28.

DEAR ST. NICHOLAS: Here is a little puzzle-story that may interest your readers :
A Dutchman purchased a farm in Minnesota. As he could not speak English, he hired John Jones to act as his interpreter, as well as to assist him with farm work.
One day during harvest, the Dutchman, who was at work in the field, sent word home to his wife that he had hired six extra men, and that she must provide dinner for them. To do this it was necessary that she should purchase provisions from the neighboring town. But John Jones was at work in the field, and neither she nor her son Hans could speak a word of English.
In this dilemma, her eyes fell upon the Bible of John Jones, which was on the table beside of her own Dutch Bible, and the following plan suggested itself. Finding the names of the articles she needed in her own Bible, she marked the corresponding passages in the English Bible.
Little Hans harnessed the horse, and going to town with the two Bibles in his wagon, he had no difficulty in making known his wants. He purchased from the grocer something mentioned in (1) Psalms, Ixxxi. 16; (2) Isaiah, vii. 22, (3) 1 Samuel, xvii. 18. From the baker

A Happy New Year to our MINERALOGISTS. Our wish is equally cordial that all our other “ists" may have a happy year, but we mention mineralogists in particular, because they are peculiarly fortunate in the prospect of the assistance of Professor W. 0. Crosby of the Boston Society of Natural History. In reference to our appeal for aid in this department, Professor Crosby writes:
“My college work is well started now, and I have decided to give the work in your departments of mineralosy and geology a trial. Before undertaking a series of lessons, I desire to become more familiar with the Association and its methods of work; and I propose now, if you think it expedient, merely to answer questions and identify specimens ; i. e.- to give assistance and instruction to individuals only, until I am more fully initiated.”
Professor Crosby will need no introduction to the members of the A. A., for his Common Minerals and Rocks, and his valuable collections of minerals have already made his name familiar and welcome to us all. All wishing to avail themselves of this offer may address him, care of Boston Society of Natural History, cor. Berkeley and Boylston sts., Boston, Mass. Stamps must, of course, be inclosed for reply, and if specimens are sent for identification, the postage for their return must also be inclosed.
T here is also good news for our ornithologists and mammalogists. for Mr. A. W. Butler, Secretary of the Brookville Society of Natural History, writes :
