Al the Fairgrounds Monday night
the Tigers won Iheir fourth straight
game of the Fraser Vnlley League.
The Sardis boys excelled in fielding
while the Chilliwacker's hatted and
ran bases in good style. Frank Hal!
pitched his first league game and
did line, lots uf experience will
make him a great pitcher. Billie
Hondo caught a fine game and his
throwing to bases was a treat fur
what ails ynu. He killed (ivo
would he thiol's al second and twn
more at third having tlie record of
len tissists in a nine inning game.
Minkler al abort played a swell
game fnr Sardis and all liis teammates fielded line. Jack Sid ine in
left made a dandy catch robbing
Billie (.untie nf a two bagger. The
Sardis buys arc bound tu win sume
game soon as they have a good
battery and whon tliey begin to hit,
their opponents will get heat.
The big game nf tlio season will
bo July 1st at Chilliwack when the
tw.. lime champions of tlie Fraser
Valley League will meet the Tigers.
Cliilliwnck will have the strongest
team they have shown this year
and Locke will pitch. Rosedale

but Laughlin is also a hard man tn
hit su Hie game should ho hard

ami Burnett and probaoly a new
man will play with the Tigers. Besides the hall game there will he
field s|surts, including 1(H1 yard

Those of our ancestors who were
culled Kelts or Celts, und who lived
in Brittany, Cornwall, Ireland, Wales,
und part of Scotland, were just as much
lovers of gold us we ure. It was not
because they required so many comforts as we do. They were content
with one story for a house, und that
was usually below ground, often carved
out of the side of a hill.
They nad little knowledge of any
kind of money, but they valued the
gold for ornaments.
They decorated their horses with
thin beat en plates of gold placed in
front of the animal's chest, hut the
metal was so scarce thai It wus only
a great chief who could afford such
decorutlon for tho team whlcb drew his
chariot, or for tho war-horse whereon he charged his enemies.

Tbe two metals which are most like
to gold-—-namely, copper uml iron pyrites—and both found Iu masses, and
both have been used to mix with gold
iu harden it. But uur ancestors used
the pure metal as a rule, because they
could not without difficulty make any
lire hot  enough to fuse tt.
One way Ihey tried to get great heat
was by the gathering together of wood
in vast piles, logs and brushwood alternating in layers. Near this they
gathered seaweed, placing this also In
layers among the wood, unit so got a
heat sufficient to fuse certain stones.
For cementing the loose piled stones
of a wall for defence they employed
such brushwood heaps, setting fire to
them, and letting the molten cement
from lhe fused stones placed ou the
lop of Ihe pyre flow down and flood
Die   tup  and  sides   of   this   loose  wall.
But such methods could not lie employed fnr the gold, which had to be
worked In pits, where the draught
would nut make a furnace strong
enough. Therefore extraction of the
metal by hammering had to be resorted to. The ore was placed in hollows In hard stones, uud  was pounded
with granite or porphyry hand hammers, or basalt blocks, and the Shining grains collected; but the labor was
su great that only the most powerful

Do animals think? If you have any
doubt about it a talk wilh William T.
Ilornaday, director of the New York
Zoological Park, will convert you to the
belief thai animals can think and reason just us human helims. though not to
the same degree, And the word of Mr.
Ilornaday is worth something, for he
is an authority on animals, their ways
and   their   life.
(in   the  whole   Mr.   Ilornaday   does
not   describe  the   mental   Operations  of
animals as thinking or reasoning. He
calls it "temperament."   But in- says
thai animals reason, and by lhat he
means ihey thiuk, As in human beings, the range of Intelligence or
reasoning power varies, and he tines
not contend that because ymi can train
an animal (hut animal can Ihlnk.

to think, hut it won't i.e trained.

Just so wiih animals, Mr. Hornnday
"Huw far does the reasoning power
of Ihe animal go?" repeated Mr. Ilornaday iu answer to the question.
"Thai Ih hard tn say. It Is a question
of degree, not of kind. I am convinced
that animals reason the same as men
du; lite same as human beings. You
know there an- human beings who do
nut thiuk and there are lots who do.
It Is the same wllh un limits. Some
think, others don't.

This brought Mr  Hornaday to tha
point Of deciding which animal had the
most  Intelligence.   II  didn't  lake him
long to mnke his decision,
"To settle that." he said, "you mist
choose between Ihe ehunpansee ami

Mr. Hornaday's eyes twinkled us he
rcmininseed of animals lie had known.
Visitors to the beautiful zoological gardens in The Bronx have been entertained by the antics of Bnldy, the
chimpanzee. Baldy is one of the features of thc purk, a favorite with sightseers and attendants, lie has been
dressed In all sorts of costumes for
tlie edification and amusement of beholders nnd for his own joy und glory.
"Baldy," said Director Hornadiy,
"Is a different ape when he Is not
dressed compared with when he wears
clothes, Put clothes on him und it
changes his demeanor entirely If he
is not dressed he Is a wild hurum scar-
urn animal, up to every kind of a trick.
He is a clown. Nothing pleases him

And he seldom falls If In* is in the

"Mat drOSS him up and see whut

That the best method of curing catarrhal disease consists in using Ca-
tarrhozone is now freely admitted.
Catarrhozone is infinitely superior to
cough medicines, tablets, sprays and
emulsions, which for the most part
ure of no practical value except to
ease the cough for the time being.
Often liquid cough remedies contain
opium, morphine and cocaine. With

Weak   Throat.   Racking  Cough   Cured
"For five yeara I suffered from a ••-
vere bronchitis. A harsh, dry, racking
cough kept my throat in a raw condition from one year's end to another.
Before going to sleep al night I always had n bad attack, and in the
morning before each breakfast I suffered greatly. My voice was harsh
and raspy, and sometimes I found it
difficult to make myself understood.
Cntarrho/one seemed to soothe and
heal from the first day. It cured me.
and now I wouldn't think of being
without a Catarrhozone Inhaler — it
means life to me."
The above experience is related by
Mr. Alexander P. Savary of Hamilton,
l'a., and proves the effectiveness of
Catarrhozone, which will cure every
cough, cold, bronchial or catarrhal attack. The dollar size of Catarrhozone

A lively nud entertaining writer has
recently made a picture of tho decline
ami fall of home nnd housekeeping in
the old sense. He—or she—thinks people are getting tired of living in
apartments and buying everything, ofT-
liaiul, In lillle dully driblets from the
market and the grocery, ll Is cleverly
done and H all lends up (o practising
a doctrine to which wc shall come in
u moment. But before that wo extract
u typical passage from his account of
present conditions:
"With tin* bread-making gone nut
of the kitchen to the bakery; with
Bprlng cleaning dune by suction; with
the washboard nnd lye-soup superseded by the steam laundry and oxalic
add; with the garden piled up on the
floor of nn eight-by-ten neighborhood
grocery store; wllh the old spring
house and the brown crocks I runs-
luted Into terms of certification nnd
hermetically sealed bottles; and with
the big house re-expressed as apartments    with    seven -nj I -light- rooms-
a ml-u-nice-broom-closet, housekeeping has bidden fair lo become a system
of small pottering and wasteful shifting of responsibility."
All that is true of many families.

Declmos must have money. If he would

il all back in a few hours. It was
an absolutely sure thing. Besides De-
clmos an J Koptolos came from the
same town in southern Greece and
that ought to make some difference.
But Koptolos knew Declmos' reputation among the other Greeks in the
city—harder than a Turk and stingier
lhan a Jew. Alone in his little cabin
he worked, week in, week out, and no
one knew just bow much money he
had.     Still

tolos, huddled down in the depths of
the red-leather chair, arms folded,
sunk forward, gave him no uneasiness,
lie had seen something very like It
before. The sight had taught him this:
if Nicolas Koptolos bad one friend
froin wlmm he could borrow, or one
thing pawnable or salable, tlmt twenty
dollars would be ready the next day.
Then half would go on Firefly; half
into Jackson's pocket. If Firefly won.
Koptolos would mala* something anyway. If she didn't Jackson would stay
away for a few days. Koptolos was
such  "an  easy  thing."
Left alone. Koptolos sat and thought
and thought. All around him the
night life of the place was getting into
full swing. The tides of human passion that run strong along the shores
of Barbery Const were fast washing
the wrecks to the surface. .Night after night they come up—old men,
| young men, white men, fnt, greasy
black men; slouching figures in clothes
worn yellow-green by ago; erect flg-
i ores whose blue coats and brass but-
' tons marked them OS defenders of our
national honor, if not of their* own;
dark-bearded sailors from foreign ships

| the   bands   of   their   impossible   little
Cars whizzed by. their jangling bells
for a moment interrupting the tinkling
pianos ami wheeling graphophones of
\ tho dance-halls nnd saloons. The
sound of laughter, clinking glass, and
the shullle of heavy feet came up from
the basements and echoed from behind
swinging doors.      The air was  thick
, Willi Ihe odor of tlie quarter: dirt,
Chinatown, am! humanity.
|   Hut Nicolas Koptolos neither saw nor
heard, Hefore him six horses strained
ami  flashed  in the sunlight.      Il  was
(so t|tilet he could hear the beat uf
their llylng hooves, as round the long
oval Ihey went, thc day's favorite always a little, just a null*, iii advance. Now ibey were half wuy
round, Sudd only the third horse gained a  lillle;   then a  Utile more.    Now
iit was oven with the first. Now n
was ahead. Not one of ihe thousands
watching dared to breathe, Thus in a
perfe.-t silence Firefly covered the lasl
lengths, and won it  by a  ims.-.      Tin*
at Declmos' door. Luck was his for
once. With the second knock a chair
grated in the room beyond, footsteps
sounded, the door opened, and Declmos
stood on the threshold, a sputtering
tallow candle in one band.
Ten minutes later the door opened
again. Koptolos came uut and Declmos followed With a lantern. For
a few yards neither spoke. Then as
Declmos knelt to untie the rope that
fastened his boat to the wharf. Kop
tolos broke out, talking rapidly. De
clmos went on untying t lie* boat as if
he weie alone.
"But I tell you," screamed Koptolos
at last, "it's as sure as the sun. She
can't luse. Can't you believe mc?
Would I lie? Do you think I want to
lose your money? Just twenty dollars," he went on, a pleading whine
creeping into his voice. "It's only till
tomorrow night. I'll give It all back
and more "
Declmos stood up, the loose em! of
the rope in his hands. With u voice
as cold and Impersonal as lhe light
In his bard black eyes, he said, slowly.
"I have told you many limes, but I
tell you again, to talk thus Is to waste
the time. I believe not In your sure

"Enough," replied Decimos. "Do
you think I am a child? I tell you
again; If you have something lhal Is

and I will lend ymi Die money. If not,
then never shall you have one cent";
and   for  the  tlrst   time his  voice  rose
angrily, echoing loudly on tlie silent
Koplolos' spirit was broken. "Give
you something," he echoed, sadly; "In

Declmos stood stock still and looked
narrowly al Koptolos. A cunning look
flashed for a moment into bis eyes, but
Nicolas, gazing out over Hie black

And half of It was bis, bis. Nicolas
Koplolos'. Nleobm sighed a hlg sigh
of  utter contonlmont.    The  physical
elYoil brought him back to the present.
The crowd and the horses and the gold
vanished,  ami   Koptolos  awoke  lo  llm
realisation  that  In  this whole  wide
world he possessed nol live dollars'
Worth of salable property.
"Nothing, absolutely nothing," ho

Of course. Firefly simply couldn't lose,

Koptolos stared. Then It dawned

of Firefly Mashed before him.
Koptolos slept little that -light.
About two o'clock the baby awoke, and
Mrs. Koptolos, treading softly not to
disturb him, began to walk tbe floor
With it. Gradually the soft, even tread
beat itself into his consciousness to tho
words "Firefly—sold him, Firefly—sold
him." "Kohl him, sold him." ticked tho

with Decimos, Hy live, or by six at the
latest, half the fat canvas sack would

OUt, ho would give the money back to
Declmos, who would bo only too glad
to get it. Koptolos swung along cheerfully. A fresh, salty breeze blew from
the bay, and the Incoming tide splashed softly against the wharf. Already
barefooted buys were busy fishing from
the end of tlie pier, and Stefano, his
brown eyes wide with admiration,
walked backward watching them.
Koptolos left him watching and went
Into the cabin to see Decimos alone.
When he came out. the four gold pieces
were jingling In his pocket, and Stefano
was still watching the barefooted

stand. Then he dusted the two chairs,
polished the cracked brass binding on
the single step to the street, stirred up
tlie blacking, and began walking up and
tlown beforo the stand, waiting for
Jackson. A little nfter eleven the
thick-set figure turngpl into Kearny
street, and once more Koptolos hurried
out to meet him. Once more Peter
Jackson went off down Kearny street
whistling merrily.
Slowly the afternoon dragged itself

chop-houses and lunch-counters began
to wear away. By two every seat in

100 years from time to time been more
or less Improved. During the reign of
Alexander ]., from 1801-1825, the Ilrst
steps toward emancipation of the Jews
were taken by affording ihem educational opportunities.
Alexander 1. directed tlie minister ot
education to draw a plan for promoting
education among tlie Jews. When the
said minister remarked that such a
plan might prove a costly one to the
Government of Russia Alexander replied, "if their means should produce

Nicholas 1„ known as the enemy of
the Jews, nevertheless officially encouraged them to take up agriculture,
Jewish farmers-were, for a certain period, to be exempt fronvnllltary service
and taxation in land. Jews wishing to
enter the field of agriculture in Russia
were practically to enjoy equal rights.
During the early part of the reign of
Alexander li.. when the serfs were
emancipated, it looked us if freedom
would be granted to the Jews of Russia as well. Kostrietionnry laws concerning the "Pale of Settlement" were
not enforced and schools were practically opened to the Jews. Such was
the uncertain status of the Jews for a
period of about eighty years, ending In
1SS1 with the assassination of Alexander II.
During the quarter of a century that
followed this period the condition of
the  Jews   In   Russia   changed   for   lhe
worst'. 1'ogroms and riots took place.
The well-known May laws were enacted and enforced. Tho Jews were driven back to the "Pale" which resulted
in a large emigration of Jews from
Russia to different countries of the
world, especially to America. The

Tlio following excerpt taken from
tbo Princeton Star sizes up tho
credit business as regards n certain
olnss of shorl term residents, ami
envoi's the local situation sn well thai

"Instances are not infrequent of
the exploitations of adventurers wins
Inking advantage uf lb.' fuel that
they aio strangers in town and their
dishonest characters unknown run
accounts with all ami sundry wbu
Cam lo give Ihem credit, The usual
course pursued by these rogues is fo
impress Ihe victim with Ihe legitimacy of tbeir purpn-e nf business
and tben by smooth deception play
upun their charity and request either
a cash loan or goods, it may always lie taken as a eorrool inference
that the oerson who is nol particular
in purchasing is not particular in
paying and the one who is profuse
with promises to pay, but does nul,
is as a rule meditating osoapo from
ajust obligation. The credit system
is bad in that it affords dishonest
persons an easy wny to obtain possession, remove credit nnd nine-tenths
of the worry nnd litigation prevalent
trill disappear. In olden days a
debtor weut to prison, nowadays ho
merely noes lo nnothor country,
Princeton has had some recent oxporienco with fugitive frauds and
others who hnvo not reached tb,.
fugitive stale but manifest n |X»i-
liive dislike for   paying nu honest
bl. Al present thc law is too
slow tn catch lhe person who hns the
reputation of hrcuking promises to
pay, ii) some barbarous countries
iho piiiii-bini'iii is social ostracism,
but tlmt is slow and scarcely .lm~iie
s'liough isi .il. .-I roform in n thick-
skiiius'd debtor. The credit system
mov iu vogue has little lo recommend
its continuance. The cash basts
would eliminate lho spendthrift,
the careless buyer, nnil lond toward

Kor a number of years, there has
been a constant llow of valuable information on agriculture, in its
several linos, going out from the Department ssf Agriculture at Ottawa.
In the forms of annual reports, special reports, bulletlans nnd circulars,
hundreds of publications have been
issued, considerably exceeding u
million copies n year, and tbc stream
is constantly enlarging. Until recently each of the several main
Branches of the Department sent
out tlieir own publiealions. An advance step has lately .been taken in
tlie organization of the Publications
Branch which is charged with the
sending out from one oiliee to all tbe
publications as issued. As n guide
to the agricultural public as to what
publications may be produced, a full
list indicating tlie subjects treated,
lias been Issued in pamphlet form lo
be sent out to those who apply for it.
Tlie postofflce department has decided to improve tlle rural mail delivery service of Canada within the

fanner's home, he will bis prepared
to sell stamps, issue postal notes or
money orders and to except letters
for registration. If tlic proposed
new system works out successfully
il will no longer be necessary for the
farmers lo visil the postoftlce except
in cases sif speoinl business.

imt their continued use never cures
rheumatism, and only deteriorates the
skin, sets up inllammation, and causes
endless trouble.
When a doctor warns you to quit
using a white, oily lininv-nt—do so. He
knows that a thick liniment can't penetrate, enn't sink through the pores and
reach the scat of the pain.
When asked his opinion a few days

Tho first prize definition of an ideal
mistress follows: —
I have been a maid since I was 11
years old, and 1 always had good positions und was satisfactory to my mistress. When I went to apply for a
position I was always dressed in a
plain neal black suit and plain white
shirt waist, because the first thing the
mistress notices is how you are dressed. If you are all frilled up in fancy
'dresses and jabots, she knows it will
tako up a lot of her time doing up
your fancy things. I think the wages
are the flrst thing to be considered,
and then If she tells you about your
days off, well, all right, but If she
doesn't, why, then, a girl doesn't need
a position very bad to ask a lot of
foolish questions—the number of children and how many rooms, etc., because a good mistress won't hire her.
Of course every girl likes a Thursday afternoon and a Sunday off—
Thursday to do her shopping; she
can always he back for Bupper; but
Sunday afternoon and evening for
herself. Now with a light airy room,
what more of a home could a girl
nsk? When the family have children
you can take us much Interest in
them as their own mother can, for
every woman loves children. I think
every good girl likes the mistress to
take an interest in hef personal affairs, because she Is so much older
and knows, becnuse she has gone
through the world and will bo Just
like a mother to you.
If ymi are a good plain cook that's

teach you the fancy cooking, If you
don't run around every night uml do
a lillle sewing or reading she sees you

callers once a  week  or so,  because she

Dr. Max stall.-r, of Philadelphia, announces a Surgical discovery thut
Should appreciably lessen Ihe sum tolul
of human pain, He finds lhat the
membrane of egg shells cun be used
us a substitute for human sklu In
grafting operations. This membrane
is actually tbc skin of embryonic chickens and contains cells similar to those
of human sklu. When placed on n
burned surface the celts multiply and
lhe membrane spreads until eventually
il Joins Ihe undeslroyed surface and
replaces the burned urea. Dr. Staller
tried his first experiment (tn u woman
suffering from severe; burns on the upper part of the body. No one could
lie found at the moment willing to part
with enough skin for grafting purposes, and so Dr. Staller procured several dozen fresh e^gs, cut the membrane into small pieces and applied
them in the usual way. Tho experiment wus completely successful. The
new skin uppears to be finer than the
human skin, imt strong and healthy.
Perhaps Dr. Staller hus dune more
than he supposes. If thc new skin is
actually finer than tho old there may
be a chance for ladies who are in
quest of beauty to repair the ravages
of time by an entirely new skin of
tho chicken variety.    The removal of

By   will  H. Oi
Mute Jlegurty, retired heavyweight
champion, was not so called because
lie was deaf and dumb, but because
of his almost invulnerable taciturnity.
The fact of the mutter was, Mule
stammered when be essayed even
monosyllabic speech and being keenly
sensitive uboul his vocal eccentricities,
talked only at the prompting of necessity. Thousands hud a bowing acquaintance with him. liis speaking
friendship was limited lo his old manager, "Ace" McCartney, and the members of his own family. When ho uttered more thun half a dozen words at
a time he was on a conversational debauch.
Uut if Mute did not talk, lhe same
wasn'l true of his money, which was
loquacious enough in sun even a hotel
proprietor. To Mr. llogarty spending
money was a business in which long
experience Inn) rendered him thoroughly proficient, lie was forever malting
several varieties ui' a picturesque Idlol
uf  himsolf.    And ye|   his silences  wen-
sometimes mure informing than nrt-

but bis falls from grace and the wator

ihem honor; they were as common a

bis own career with extreme disfavor.
Mute Hegarty grabbed his money und
Lacked into retirement,
Four years of idleness, reinforced by
a keen appetite for very liest of good
things of life, brought the great Heg-
arty to a realization that no fortune is
too large lo spend, and lhat a man
without un income has no license for
believing that a few hundred thousand will see him through Folly's
realm to comfortable old age. So on*-
tine day he received a statement from
his bunkers that was amazing; nnd
mnde him doleful and blasphemous.
ilis fast dwindling fortune had shrunk
to a hare $-.000 and his days as a
luxurious liver were at un end.
He stood Btaring ut the statement
that brought him lo the brink of bankruptcy with an expression uf absolute
and paralyzed incredulity.
"H-h-h-hellt" he gasped, and dropped Into a chair witli an by moisture
beading Ids brow. That he was called
the undefeated champion was n treus-
urable compliment; he bad never
meant to jeopardise the title; but he
hnd reached thc frayed end of his
tether. Me Would huve to lighl again;
and be had un uncomfortable sense
thnt he could nol gel another battle
unless he agreed to lose.
Mule walked his apartment ln the
St. Regal with thoughtful mien, as
one reviewing nnd arranging a confused mass of facts. He hud the burgundy complexion uf a bon vlvant. a
special detestation for exercise und nn
unshakable feeling uf apprehension.
On the verge of succumbing to complete menial panic he telegraphed for
Aee McCartney! who appeared upon
ihe scene within the hour.
McCartney wns reluctantly eager to
renssume lhe position of devoted adviser io Mr. Hegarty, not fur personal
guln, hul for the sake of auld long
syne. He wus durk, ful, podgy, affable
und self-contained. ills voice was
pleasant and distinct, and the style
and texture of his clothing stamped
him us something of a swell.
Mute, red from chin to ears, slmn-
mered forth his story.
"And," he wound up with u rush,
"w-w-wlUi you t-t-to hel-lielp m-m-
me. 1-1-1 k-k-kin lick "em nw-nw-ull."
When Ace McCartney spoke It was

Instructively,  wilh  a  hint,  indeed,  of
"You're very bud. Mute." he said.
"and you couldn't light a preliminary
right now. It'll take some time to pul
you fn anything like decent condition.
What did you do with all your money?"
Instead of trying lo put u gloss upon
the matter, Mule became satirical. He
hud earned all the money he bnd taken
with him Into the semi-obscurity of
Ills retirement, he declared, nnd he
went on to state thnt he had spent il
like a white mnn iiinr.i sport. Snre.
he was broke perilously near II, anyhow. He couldn't live on u couple of
bucks a week, he couldn't, aud he
couldn't muke more money without using his fists; he hadn't discovered the
secret of tbe truusmulutloii of metals;
he hadn't developed a formula for extruding gold from sen water; nor hnd
be been exploring the wreck of u
sunken Spanish galleon,
Aee McCartney looked at blm with
ihnt air of patient fortitude thut comes
to us all so easily when we contemplate
Ihe misfortunes of others. As he
spoke he wus smiling with the ironic
deference of an assured superiority.
"Busy, old boss," he soothed. "You
know there is only one big fight left
for you. Tho public knows you enn't
live the way you have been living nnd
fight. But they'll believe there Is one
more winning battle In you. Aspiring
-■humps nre rnre, but you can get on
one good one for a mess of money. You
! prefer money lo glory now, eh, Mule'.'"
The champion looked up ut bis manager out of bleared vacuous eyes.
"W-whn-butcher mean?"
"1 mean you'd rather lose for n hun-
| dred thousand than win for half lhal
amount," said McCartney, watching his
j man   purringly,   -contentedly,   like   a

in German laboratories bearing on the
possibility of controlling tires of varying chemical origin. It is said that if

One of the noteworthy results of a
recent expedition on Ihe government
steamer "Albatross," was lhe discovery
of a hand of elephant seals. The expedition was commanded by Dr.
Charles H. Townsend, director of the
Xew York Aquarium, and wns sent out
under the auspices of the New York
Zoological Society und tbe Museum of
Natural History, New York. The ani-
mnls were found on the uninhabited
Island of Guadeloupe, 250 miles off the
coast of Sun Diego. The pnrty captured alive six baby elephant seals,
which were sent to the New York
Aquarium, where they nre attracting
great attention. Four skins of large
adult mules were obtained, over sixteen feet long, for a museum group.
The maximum length of the adult male
is 22 feet. The femnle. which Is
smaller, lucks a proboscis. The short
proboscis, or "trunk," has the nostril
openings at the end and can be ex-
pnnded and contracted ut will. The
mule elephant seals tight desperately,
us the scars on their necks und breasts
bear evidence. They have formidable
teeth and send forth guttural roars
which can he heard at a considerable
distance. Unlike the fur seal the elephant seal Is a wonderful oil-producing animal, having a deep layer of
blubber six or seven Inches thick; the
oil Is even superior to whale oil.
Fifty yeurs ago, elephant seals were
abundant, but owing to their wholesale
slaughter to obtain the valuable oil for
commercial purposes by the sealers,
the species Is now approaching extinction.
It is interesting to note that more
than twenty mahogany-like woods nre
now offered ns true mahogany, not to
mention a considerable number of
woods cunningly stained to Imitate that
wood. In the present circumstances,
therefore, when the demand for mahogany is greater thnn the supply, unusual interesl attaches to such woods
as Carinlana or Colombian mahogany,
which is acknowledged not to be mahogany, hut which is so similar to It
In color, grain effects and working
qualities as to serve for the rarer wood.
The statement Is made thnt while
Carinlana differs widely in its uotnni-
cnl and nnntomlcnl •characters from
true mahogany, Its close superficial resemblance to mahogany am) its physical properties at once distinguish It
us u high class cabinet wood. When
properly seasoned It does not warp,
check or shrink, while much of the
lumber is beautifully figured, It works
well, lakes a filler rendily. und can be

bears the name Paratilapia multicolor,
was kept in an aquarium containing
suitable seaweed, und observed through
several seasons.
The female fish places the e*ggs in
pockets in her mouth, and keeps them
there until they hatch. After hatching,
the fry is thrown out into the water
in the morning, but toward evening
the young fish come back to the mother's mouth. Inside of which they
spend the night.
A resting condition resembling sleep
wns also observed. Ordinarily these
fish rest near the bottom of the water.
But nfter the eggs are laid the female
seeks the surface of the water, so that
at times her back fins were actually
out in the oir. When at the surface,
she pressed her side tins close against
the body, nnd remained quite motionless for ns much as two hours at a
stretch. With the exception of very
slight movements of the gill covers.

animal  was  still alive.
Dr. Romeis supposes that the advantage In this habit lies in the fact that

ns much as possible. Floating near
the surface is perhaps connected with
the fact that here the fish enn pet sufficient oxygen with the least amount
