RAINBOW ? U PLt 11,13TITIONS. According to fanciful superstition, a pair of golden slippers lies buried at the fooc of the rainbow, which will bring good luck to the finder. Pliny tells us of a quaint belief that the earth immediately under a rainbow I gives forth a pleasant odour. Lord Bacon, in his "Sylva Syivarum," refers to the same superstition. He says: "11 hath been ob- served ny the ancients that where a liar no- bow seeiiiCth to• hang, over, or to touch, there breatheth forth a sv. ret smell." John LVle, another writer of the sixteenth century, u..s us in his "Epilogue to Campaspe" tnat, "Where the rainbow toueheth the trees, no caterpillar will hang upon the leaves."
