Kilaby Jones, the famous preacher, whose death Welshmen mourn, once perceived some of his Rhaiader congregation doing homage to Morpheus. Thus he roused them:—"l remember very well/' said he, raising his voice, "when I was living with my father in Carmarthenshire, one year we had a fine litter of pigs, each of which had a pair of horns, exactly like those of the Castleraartin cattle." All eyes and ears were instantly wide open. "Kilaby"now bent forward. " How well you listen now —to a lie! When I was preaching the truth of God to you half of you were fast asleep!" He then, after this sarcastic comment, proceeded with his discourse. M. Ungerer believes that flowers and the perfumes distilled from them have a salutary influence on the constitution. He saya that residence in a perfumed atmosphere forms a protection from pulmonary affections and arrests the development of phthisis. He adds that in the town of La Grasse, where the making of perfumes is largely carried on, phthisis is rare, thanks to the odorous vapors exhaled from the distilleries.
