Continued from last week.
roily COHStra it lo ner, null tenmng
back in her chair, watched her ns sla-
twisted tlio feather tliis way anil
that and arranged and rearranged
the ribbon. At last Nina held it oul
-leprecatingly, and Polly tried  it  on.
"Oh, you dear!" sbe exclaimed,
Joyfully, "That's splendid! Il isn't
quite like the one in tbu shop, hut
it's twenty times more pi-etty and
stylish. I've never had such u hat;
it's a duck and n darling! And how
quickly you did it! Why, I'vo been
hours and hours fumbling at it!"
"I'm glad you liko it," said Nina.
"I used to trim my own bufs and
make my own dresses—"
"And no wonder, if thoy were ns
good as this!" said Polly. "Why"--
sbo stopped suddenly and pursed her
lips—"I'm going to rehearsal ia that
hat, and if I don't knock the rest of
tho girls with it, well—I'm afraid I
must co now. dear. You won't feel
imieiy winie 1 in awayi Ana you
won't fret? Promise!"
"I sha'n't feel so lonely if you will
leave me something to do," said Nina. "Isn't there another hat, for instance, or a blouse or a dress that
wants mending?"
Polly dragged a blouse from a box
under the bed and slipped it on.
"That was mado for me, if you
please!" she cried with Infinite Scorn.
"Observo tho fit! You can't tell the
back from the front, can you? And
I paid twenty-two-and-six for it; I
did,   indeed!"
"It wants taking in here," said Nina.
"It wants burning!" retorted Polly, indignantly. "You dou't mean to
say you can alter it?"
"I can try. Let me, while you are
away, Polly."
She set to work at it Immediately
Polly had gone, and in her pleasure
and satisfaction in doing oven a littlo for the girl who had not only
befriended her but bestowed her affection upon her, she found some relief of mind nnd spirit. She tried to
think only of the present and her
terribly vague future, but every now
and then, in the quietude of the
room, the picture of the past rose
beforo her, and one man's figure
stood out prominently in it.
Folly was away about three hours,
and wben she returned she carried a
hat-box in ber hand. He face was
flushed, her eyes were sparkling.
"Not dono the blouse, really?" sho
cried.
"Oh, yes, some time ago. Slip ofl
your Jacket nnd let mo try it on. Is
that better'.  Oh, I hope so!"
"It fits like a miracle I" said Polly,
solemnly. "I tell yoll what it is,
Decima, you are a born genius! And
look here! What do you think I've
got hero?'"
She whipped out a hat and somo
materials.
"Seo that! I told you I should
knock 'cm! Why. the girls were liko
a flock of bees round me the moment
I stepped on the stage. Oh, what a
pretty hat, Tolly! Where did you get
it?' and that sort of thing. They
were positively green with envy.
Then I worked the idea that struck
mo Jnst before I went out, and I told
'em I'd get ns pretty a one for 'em
for twelve-and-six. They wouldn't believe at first; but Jessie Green snid
she'd trust me nnd fished out tho
money there und then. 1 told 'em m.v
terms wero cash, you know. So I
bought tlie things as I came home—
the samo shop; it'B a chcup but stylish one—and here you are. Hat and
materials cost, eiglit-and-nine; profit,
three-aml-thrue. Hut perhaps you
don't think it's enough—" doubtfully.
Nina actuully laughed  up at her.
"Givo it to ine!" slie said. "Why,
lt will tako no time. And how pretty lt Is I Ob, I do hope I shall trim
it to please herl"
Polly snorted. "Trust you for
that I Jessie's bound to liko lt; and
seo here, lleclnia, If she does, tho other girls will want to have their huts
trimmed, for she's one of the best-
dressed uf our lot. I told ber I'd got
a swell milliner who'd do the things
for us on the cheap."
"Wbnt a clever girl you nre—notwithstanding tho lib," snld Nina,
laughing nguin. "I think this ribbon
ought to go like this."
"It won't go uny way until you've
had some lunch," said Polly, taking
tbo hat from her. "Oh, I know your
Bort at sight; you're one of thole
girls who'd work themselves to death
lf they weren't stopped at it. You've
dono a hat and u blouse to-ilny, und
that's—oil, don't color up and look
at mo like that; I'm not going to
offer to pay you for them!"
"I  should  think not!"  said     Nina,
Indignantly,
Polly allowed her to go to work
Mi.,n after bun h, but, though the hut
wus finished, Polly refused to lake it
with her to tbe theatni that evening.
"Not much!" she snld, knowingly.
"What!    Qlvo Ibe show uway!      No,
nol Friend ho lull up with work tlmt
fah.i couldn't think of even looking at
tho hat to-day. Oh, no. lf you want

"No,  I think  not,"  assented  Nina.
"Ho I thought. I know your sort.
You'ro tho 'humble vlolot shrinking in
tho shade.' There ain't ninny of 'em
about nowadays," added I hu shrewd
Polly,   "mores   tho  pity I"
tlho brought home another order—
a toqun this time—and Nina worked
at It—for some reotODi Inexplicable
to tho male mind, a toque Is a more
clnbornto porfiiriniiiirn than a hat —
ull tho next. day. 1 'oily approved of
lt, but looked at Ilccima with stern
scrutiny,
"You'ro working yoursolfto death,
And you'ro thinking all Ihe lime."
Nina colored quickly, "Look here.
you wnnt n change. Come to the
theatro to-night.  I'll  pnss you  In."
Nlpn shrunk from tha offer for
awhile, but finnlly gave In. Polly
got her a seat In the upper cirri,—a
back sent with a pillar to dodge—
and cant off behind.
rsma ielt Strange at nrst. -he had
nover been to a theatre alone beforo,
and the troublous times sho had
passed through made her nervous
and self-conscious. But presently she
grew calmer.
Mr. Harcourt was a liberal manager and had "presented" a first
piece to his audience. "Presented"
is not altogether inappropriate; for
certainly the one-act "comedy" was
not worth paying for. It was supposed to bo sentimental, with a
touch of comic humor and pathos.
Unfortunately tho comic and the
pathetic changed places now and
again, and the sentiment either Irritated Nina or made her want to
laugh. Tbe rest of the audience stared at it with an Arctic indifference or
guyed it under their breath; and
when the curtain fell upon tho forced situations, tho forced dialogue,
and the wooden acting—for not the
best actor or actress alive could talk
the stuff set down for them and remain flesh and blood—the people
yawned and the male part promptly
went to the bars for the refreshment
they sorely needed. But it wns very
different when the band struck up the
overture to tho musical farce. The
tiling was well done, and Nina en-
Joyed it. She recognized Polly
amongst the chorus, and once or
twice caught a scarcely perceptible
nod from her in the direction of the
upper circle.
"Well, what did you think of it?"
nsked Polly when they got home.
"All alive, isn't it, and it goes with
a bang, eh?"
Nina expressed her admiration for
the big piece, but was silent about
the first; and Polly nodded, as if
Nina had criticized it.
"Yes, the first piece, 'For a Sister's Sake,' is feeble, Isn't it?"
"Yes," aaid Nina with deference.
"The idea is a very pretty and effective one, but they talk—"
"Like people in a book, one of the
old frumpish books*I know."
"And they're never surprised at
the most extraordinary coincidences,"
continued Nina, warming to her subject. "Nothing astonishes them.
When the man comes back from America with a million of money nobody usks him how he made it in
four months; when the heroine gives
up her sister to the hero they all
take it as a matter of course, as if
it didn't matter—"
"And it doesn't—to the audience,"
said Polly.
"And the little girl—"
" 'Shall I bo a hanged when I die,
mother?' " quoted Polly. "Yes; if
any sensible mother had a child like
that she'd put its head in a bucket."
"How is it that Mr. Harcourt, who
must be a clover man, puts on such
a silly first piece?" asked Nina.
Polly shrugged her shoulders. "Oh,
they don't think of anything but
'Aly Lady Pride.' Anything's good
enough to play the people in. It's
only the pit and gallery and a
sprinkle in the upper circle.'*
"Poor people! What have they
done that they should be bored to
death?" said Nina
"Oh, well," responded Polly, "perhaps it makes 'em all the keener to
bcc the big piece. See? But all the
same I'm sorry for the people who
play in it. Miss Tracey, for instance—who plays the idiotic sister—can act awfully well if sho has
a part to suit her."
The toque waB as great a success
as the preceding "confections" Nina
had turned out, and nearly every
day Polly brought home a fresh order. She put the price up, of course,
and the joint earnings of the two
girls enabled them not only to live
better, but to go for little outings
in the dny time; so that Nina's face
began to loso its sharpness and
something of the old light began to
creep back to her eyes. Polly made
lier promise not to work at the millinery at night, and Nina passed the
time while Polly was at the theatre
in reading—and dicaming of the
pust. One night Polly asked her to
go to the theatro to see Miss Tracey, who wanted a new hat, and insisted upon giving tho instructions
herself. "We can't have her here;
they'd all want to come." Nina
hesitated, but at last consented.
"Behind the scenes" Ib always somewhat awe-inspiring to tho novice,
und Nina made a ii_.rv.-iis grab at
Polly's hand as they passed amongst
the forest of wings and "back
cloths" to Miss Tracey's dressing-
room.
That young lady was making up
for the idiotic first piece; but, after
u stare of something like surprise,
she received Nina iB the friendly
"hail fellow well met" fashion of tho
profession and explain,— what it was
Bile wanted. The call-hoy summoned
her in the midst of her elaborate description.
"lion't go yet; wait till I come ofl
again, Miss Wood,'1 she said.
"P'raps you'd like to go to tho
wings and see the piny. I'll put it
light  with ths stage-manager."
Sho got the permission and Nina
went up nnd stood out of sight.
She'd seen the play once too often;
and insteud of listening to the vapid
dialogue she let her mind wnnder. It
w linden_ in so strange a direction
thjil she roused horscll' with a start.
Well, silly thing, isn't it?" said
Miss Traeoy with a mime of disgust,
"i wonder they stand If. But it's
w. nderful what the Oreat B. P. will
Stand, About the hnt, Miss Wood,"
Oti .

The Idea Hint lind come to her as
she stood at the wings biiiiuled her;
una tbe next evening she nlmost mechanically got a pen and some pnpci
und begun to write. She wns so
absorbed in her task Ihut she lost
eoui.t ol the hours, und bud only

sheets she bad covered nnd thrust
them into a drawer ub Polly came

A Win-Ted General of the Seme.
One of tho most extraordinary specimens of the fish family ls the "nam hal
gnan," or great general of the south
sea, an animal of the whale species,
which has its homo in the Iudlnn ocean.
A full growu nam ls upward of thirty-
five feet In length, pure blnck ln color
and has eyes as large as a saucer. Besides the above characteristic features,
which may be said to be whalelike,
with the exception of the eyes, the nam
bas two Immense tusks which resemble those of the elephant, both iu size
and color, aud two queer winglike
membranes extending along its sides
from the side fins almost to the tail.
The old nams have a curious habit of
marshaling their kiud to do battle with
the whales aud the sharks, aud old
mariners say that tbey maneuver with
so much Intelligence and sagacity that
they are known to all tbe islanders by
names which signify winged generals,
winged warriors or winged chiefs of
tbe seas.
The Heliotrope.
Although tbe heliotropo is a tender
plant, extremely sensitive to cold, lt is
one of the best plants for cultivatlou
indoors. It seems to have few diseases
and ls usually free from Insect enemies,
.While with abundant water and suu-
shlne and sufficient artificial heat it
will bloom all winter long year after
year and Is so tenacious of life that
when cut down to a mere stick lt
quickly shoots forth luxuriant new
wood. In addition to this the more the
plant Is pruned the more luxuriantly it
blossoms. Tbe blossoms should be cut
with a considerable leugtb of the new
wood upon which they grow, and lf n!
once fully Immersed In water and then
placed deep In a well filled vase they
remain fresh and odorous for many
days. The plant ls a little difficult for
amateurs to propagate from cuttings,
though with plenty of water and sun
nnd some bottom hent the young cuttings quickly root and prosper.

signed by 7,000 Chlcagoans. It Beems
that he was a picture framer, and as

AN  ALBERTA  FOSSIL,
Bones of a Prehistoric  Monster Found
Near Bantry, Alta.
While on a hunting trip recently H.
A. Crofton of Alberta came across ssjme
fossilized bones From the few specimen- at band it is Impossible to make
a surmise as to w*at species of extinct
monster the animal belonged^ but the
size must  have been  enormous.
The find was made In Dead Lodge
Canyon, and the attention of Mr. Crofton was arrested by some of the original bones protruding; from a cut bank.
Investigation showed tbem to be embedded ln a stand-none formation, and
It was necessary to obtain tools and put
in soma hard work beforo the body was
even partly uncovered.
Work was started in from the bank,
and the developments were watched
wlUi gTeat Interest, Wben the excavation proceeded far enough a large portion of the remains of some extinct
monster were revealed.
Owing to the difficult nature of the
work lt was not found possible to uncover more than a small portion of the
remains, but tho vertebrae and ribs
were laid bare.
According to Mr. Crofton, the backbone ls as large as a man's body, and
the portion exposed rs about seven feel
In length. Attached to tbe vertebrae
were eight ribs of enorm/ius size, measuring three or four feet ln length, some
of them a foot or so ln width. Tfliere
has been no time for further Investigation, but three of the fossilized bone:'
have been brought ln by the discoverer.
They are all broken, but can be eas
Ily titled together. As to what portion
of the body of the animal they are from
ts purely conjecture. Judging from appearance, one which is broken Into
three pieces is probably a section of
tho tall. It ls about ten inches in diameter and four Inches thick. Through
the centre ls an opening which possibly
contained the spinal cord.
Another, which ts also broken, haf
the appearance of having been connect
ed with one of the joints. One largt
piece, the only one which is whole
looks as though lt was a hoof.
A bone which has the appearance of
a thigh bone has been forwarded to
authorities ln the east for examination,
and their opinion will be awaited with
interest. If the remains are all recovered and in fairly gpod condition, Mr.
Crofton has made a discovery whilch
-should be of value and Interest to
-K-lent——.
Dead Lodge Canyon, where the discovery was made, Is one of the most
weirdly Interesting places in the Territories It Is situated between 22 and 25
miles northeast of Bantry, on the Canadian Pa-flc Railroad main line, which
ls Its nearest point from the railway,
and on tb* banks of the Red Deer River.
A CANADIAN  FOREST.
Unique Reproduction at a Recent Dinner In Brooklyn, N. Y.
The New York Herald, of the 11th
Jan., says: Unique among Brooklyn
functions was a Canadian dinner given
last night by Alfred Van Derwerken at
hia home. No. 205 Berkeley place, for
his son, Alfred Van Derwerken, Jr., of
Quebec. In the centre of Uie large table was an exact reproduction of a
camp In the Canadian forest, near Lake
Alexander, where Mr. Van Derwerken
and his friends hunt every fall. It was
Mr. Van Derweken's sixty-third birthday.
Jacques Ceyer, a Frenoh-Indlan
guide, made the hut with his knife. It
was nearly three feet square, and in
every detail was an exact reproduction
of a log cabin used ln the camp as
headquarters. On the sides of the little cabin were miniature fishing rods,
snowshoes and skins of animals.
At either end of the cabin were ponds
of water representing Uie lakes that
surround the Canadian camp. Floating
on the little ponds were liny ducks and
loons, carved by the guide, and canoes
modelled after those used by the Brooklyn men on their hunting trips. In the
ponds were goldfish. Surrounding the
ponds were rows of Canadian twigs,
representing the forests, and partly
concealed among these were various
kinds of birds and animals.
Lining the dining room were rows of
evergreen trees, sueh as.abound in the
Canadian forests. Partly concealed behind a little grove of trees was seen
the head of a big caribou, which waa
recently shot by Mr. Van Derwerken.
There were stuffed animals In the room
that were killed near the camp. Many
of the courses were served ln log cab-
Ins, canoes and on small snowshoes, all
whittled out of trees ln the Canadian
camp.
Noted Speech of By-Gone Days.
Hon. Joseph Howe, ot Nova Scotia,
speaking in 1»_, thus firmly laid hold
on the kernel of Imperialism:
"If then, Mr. Chairman, the British
and Colonial statesmen of the present
day, cordially co-operating, do not Incorporate this people Into the British
Empire, or make a nation of them, they
will, long before their numbers have
swelled so much, make a nation of
themselves. Let me not be misunderstood, sir; I Bay nothing here that I
would not utter ln the presence of the
Queen. If disposed to declare our Independence tomorrow, I do not believe
that Her Majesty's Government would
attempt to prevent as by force. If they
did, they would fall.
"But what I want them to understand is this, that they lost one-half
of this continent by not comprehending lt; and that just so sure as they
expect the sentiment of loyalty to attach the other half to England, while
the people of two small islands divide
the distinctions and the Influence of
the Empire among them, they will, by
any by, be awakened by the peaceful
organization of a great country, whose
Inhabitants must be Britons In every
sense of the word, or something more."
Hope and Jor.
Hope, of all passions, most befriends
us here. Joy has her tears, and transport has her death. Hope, like a cordial, Innocent, though strong, man's
li -art at once inspirits and serenes, nor
makes blm pay his wisdom for his
Joys.—Young.

GEORGE HARPER.
GEORGE HARPER.
Editor and Proprietor of the Standard,
Carman,  Manitoba.
When a man has stood! the wear
and tear of tlie newspaper- business
for over thirty years and still retains
virility, ami iovo of sport sufficient
in his make-up to annually hunt the
bounding buck ovor the prairie or
follow the squawking wild goose to
its lair, according to the statutes in
such cases made and provided, there is
a oase of cause and effect somewhere
in tho problem.
It may bo that tho satisfaction
which tho running of a successful
provincial newspaper in Western
Canada gives Hir. Georgo Harper, oditor and proprietor of the Carman Standard, enables him to follow
joyously nnd successfully tho trail oi
the sandhill stag, or it may bo that
the sound of tho "honk-honk" of the
wavy is a change from the clatter of
the printing press and relieves the
nerves ol a newspaperman conducting
an enterprising country paper and a
largo job printing establishment,
Whatever may bo the causo and
whatever may be tlio effect in such a
problem is a matter of indifference,
for the editor of tho Carman Standard is well known, and his many
friends in tlie province of Manitoba
aro not worried ns to whether a first-
class newspaperman naturally becomes a sportsman or tho lover ol
rod and gun becomes necessarily n
good ungler for business or a tireless
pursuer of a political opponent. As n
matter of fact, the combination is unusual and Mr. Harper is an oxecption
to the general rule.
It was in the order of things that
Mr. Harper should have been born ill
tho county of Huron, the birthplace
of many prominent Canadian newspapermen of the provincial press. Ht
was horn in Godericb. When ho was
seven years old his father with his
family removed to tho city oi Hamilton and under tho circumstances it
is to he supposed that tho future editor of tho Carman Standard felt it a
duty to go with them. Educated
in Hamilton, ho at an early age developed a taste for printer's ink, in
comparison with whicll the desire
of the man-eating tiger for human blood is a passing fancy- He
entered tho printing business in the
office of the Hamilton Spectator where
he leurned his trade as a cunipu-sitoi
and I'or thirty years worked either in
that offico or the office of its rival,
the Hamilton Times, The newspapei
offices of the . two well conducted,
clever Hamilton papers wore goon
schools of bright, up-to-date journalism and there is evidence oi the
brightness of the Spectator and the
solidity of tho Times in tho Carman
Standard of to-day. Thirty yenrs
train a —fan whoso only holidays are a
few weeks' fishing and shooting everj
year.
Mr. Harper didn't respond to the
call of tho West until 1893. Western Manitoba hadn't developed sufficiently bofore that time. The shooting
excellent though it might bo was not
sufficient to lure Mr. Harper from
tlio shadow of the Hamilton mountain
and the charm of a newspaper situation dominated by John Robson Cameron until an opportunity cumo te
buy out tho Carman Standard. Mi
Harper bought it. 'Ihcre are several
reasons that would lead one to believe
that Mr. Harper has not regretted
his western move in 1893. The
town of Carman has doubled in population sinco his taking charge of its
principal paper. Mr. Harper probably does not claim any particulai
credit for himself as to this any further than the fact that a bright,
newsy newspaper and nn up-to-date
job printing office aro not supposed
to lio drawbacks to a town's growth
and prosperity.
Tho Carman Standnrd is conducted
on in'ependent lines politically Mr.
Harper is himself a Liberal-Conservative and in the stress of political wai
when the battle wages fiercely all
along tho fighting lino it is not to be
wondered at if an  occasional    article

An enthusiastic sportsman by field
and stream, Mr. Harper is a capital
shot with the rifle or fowling piece
and devotes the major portions of n

upon as one of the most successful
lovers of the rod and gun in western
Canada He occasionally goes far
afield and has just returned from a
successful sporting trip to the Okan-

Some day when the stress of life in

It Is well known thnt pure quartz
glass possesses the property of transmitting very abundantly the so called
chemical rays of light, by means of
which photographic effects are produced, aud It has often been attempted
to mnke photographic lenses of quartz
alone. Unfortunately quartz also possesses tho property of double refraction, so that unless the opening of tbe
lenses ls very narrow good Images are
not produced. Recently a French optician, E. Morin, has succeeded in making small photographic lenses of quartz
glass, ln which some of the difficulties
bave been avoided, and the lenses show
great rapidity of action. Still, tbe problem confessedly has not been entirely
solved, and tbe new lenses are recommended by their Inventor only for special purposes. Astronomers are particularly desirous to obtain photographic
lenses possessing tbe peculiar permeability to the actinic rays that characterize quartz.

Reconciled Science and  Religion.
A clergyman Is quoted ln Everybody's Magazine as confounding an advanced young woman who was demonstrating to him that science bad disproved religion with this little parable.
"Madam," he said, "I once knew a
member of your sex who perfectly reconciled science nnd religion. She Is a
prominent member of tbe Young Women's Christian association, and she
was making an address to a large gathering of women, which was interrupted by a terrific thunder shower. She
shared with many the awful^fear of
thunder and lightning, and, with the
others, she trembled In silence for a
few moments. Wheu a blinding flash
was swiftly followed by a frightful
clap of thunder she struggled to her
feet and began to pray, 'O Lord, take
us under thy protecting wings, for thou
knowest that feathers are nonconductors.' "

Strengthening   Deficient   Faculties.
Few people are well-balanced, well-
rounded. . A great many have splendid ability in certain lines, good education, fine training, and yet have
some deficiency in their make-up
which clippies the whole life and
dwarfs the res Its of their utmost In.
dttstry. Many of us have soma little,
contemptible weakness which offsets
our strong qualities and ruins their
effectiveness.
What a pity to see a giant in possibility tied down by some little, contemptible weakness which cripples
what might have been a magnificent
career I If parent or teacher would
only point out to a child a weakness
wliich, perhaps, will be fatal if not
remedied, and tcacli it how to guard
against it, how to strengthen tho defective quality by ment—I exercise,
what a tremendous help it would give
to the child, perhaps preserving it
from failure.
It is pitiable to see a young man
bowing to what he calls fate, which
he thinks has been fixed by the contour of his brain or in his hereditary
tendencies. Why should we drag 0111
weaknesses through life, when a little
common sense, a little right thinking
in fixing new habits of thought would
soon remedy them?
If you are conscious of a mental
weakness, a deficient faculty, using a
little concentration, thinking in the
opposite direction, and dwelling upon
the perfect faculties or qualities you
desire, would soon put yon i'n a normal condition. It is normal thinking
that makes the normal life.
But if you leave your weak faculties alono—do not try to exorcise
tliem, do not try to enlarge them,
do not think it worth while—how can
you expect them ever to become
strong? You can not develop a sys-
metrical body by simply exercising
the arms. The saute is true of the
mental faculties. Those wliich are not
used deteriorate. If you long for a
thing and strive for it with all your
might persistently enough and long
enough you cannot help approximating
it; you must get what you wish in
some degree.—Success Magazine.

the old uames of the months were retained. But there was one of them

THE CUCKOO.
How This Selfish, Hostess Bird Gets
Its Eggs  Hatched.
A popular fullaif;,- tc!l_ us that a cuckoo lays eggs In anothtr bird's nest.
Slie does not. She lays eight eggs on
the ground The eggs are in size, color, spots and shape in accordance with
the Information obtained, My, ln Leigh
woods: Out of the eight eggs five or
six would closely resemble the hedge
sparrow's. The other two might be
those of a titlark, a wren or a linnet.
Her male friends—about three or four
to each lady—now come forward, select each an egg and carry It ln Its
mouth to the nest of the prearranged
foster mother. Only one cuckoo egg ls
placed ln one nest. If he finds a cuckoo
has preceded him on the same errand
he seeks another cradle, knowing In a
moment amid all the eggs present the
cuckoo pedigree.
The deluded mother hatches the Intruder with her own brood, and the Interloper, having the faculty of being
hatched sooner than the others, ls of
course the flrst to come out of his shell.
He manages to wriggle underneath his
brothers and sisters and presents them
as a heave offering to the expectant
rodents, mice, rats, stoats, and what
not, and within twelve hours of his existence ls the supreme occupier of the
nest. He keeps his black mouth wide
open continually, which the father and
mother of the departed chickens as
constantly fill until his body is too big
for his home, and he departs therefrom
forever.
The cuckoo leaves the last week of
July. He is a restless being. After
leaving Europe he begins in the north
of Africa and ends at the Cape of
Good Hope, whence he returns to Europe ln the spring. Why does he go
away and why come back? Food—the
food he loves—the hairy caterpillars.
He will eat other grubs, but these are
his hourly bread.
It has been estimated in round numbers that out of every 100 hairy caterpillars that wriggle into life 99 are devoured by cuckoos. Everywhere nature ls careful to maintain her balance.
The cuckoo keeps down the millions of
billions of hairy caterpillars and preserves our cornfields from being eaten
up by hedge sparrows. The cuckoo ls
a born conservative and as long aa he
lives returns annually to the neighborhood of his birth.—Western (England)

Breeches, Pantaloons and Trousers.
"Breeches," ln the strict meaning of
that term, were worn by the semicivl-
lized men of the east long ages before
a single page of the New Testament
was written, having been quite common among the Medes and Persians,
the Phrygians, the Gauls and the Teutons. Breeches were very "brier' articles of apparel, scarcely covering the
hips ln the majority of Instances and
never reaching nearer than six Inches
of the knee.
"Pantaloons" were exaggerated
forms of stockings reaching from the
hips to the gnkles and as tlght-fltting
as a pair of knit drawers. They were
usually of three different colors—black
at the hips, red from hip to knee and
blue to the termination at the ankle.
They came ln vogue during tho llrst
half of the fifteenth century at Venice
and were worn by the devotees of the
patron saint, Pantaloon. Such garments were always called pantalinl by
the Italians.
"Trousers," the only proper word to
express the existing styles ln "pants,"
followed closely after the "knee
breeches'' of the Revolutionary period,
being flrst worn In England at Oxford
and Cambridge ln 1812.
Remarkable Feat.
Recently an Indian fakir appeared at
a circus ln Berlin, where he astonished
the audience by lifting a boy with his
eyelids. The boy made himself as
small as possible #nd was put into a
net to which was secured a string that
was provided on each end with n little
cup just large enough to lit over the
eye. The lalilr pressed these little cups
over his eyes, where they held fast,
then threw his head back and slowly
straightened his body, thus lifting his
burden, which he then carried about,
his arms being outstretched all the
time, and Anally lowered lt slowly to
the ground again. How ls lt possible
for any man to do this? The enly explanation ls that the cups were fitted
Into the eye sockets so that they held
on the edges of the sockets, but It Is
not likely that the trick will be Imitated by even those prestlgltators who
consider themselves very expert.
Curious Singapore Law.
There Is a unique law in Singapore
which makes the coroner lots of trouble. That official complained tho other
day to this effect: "In this settlement
Indians can burn any dead body they
like without any written authority from
any one. It ls also a fact that no one
can be buried without a doctor's certificate and a burial order. This Is a
beautiful state of affairs and one to
which I have frequently called the attention of the authorities. I remember
on one recent occasion I had to hold
an Inquest on an Indian at tho mortuary, and on my arrival there I found
that the body was already on the pyre
ready to be burned, and I had to send
the usher of tho court to have the
body brought back. The dangor of
crime arising from this state of affairs
Is obvious."

than the flour it is made of.
Often it is not nearly so
good, but that is the fault of
the bread-maker.
Without good flour, good
bread is impossible, no matter
how skilfully it is handled.
Now, good bread must
be good to eat, as well as
good to see or to taste.
Good-to-eat bread is bread
that nourishes.
In the matter of nutriment,
Royal Household Floor
is supreme. It represents the
best that is in the wheat,
ground to a snowy whiteness
and purified by electricity.
It produces bread that is
light, easy to digest and best
of all—nutritious. Ogilvie's
Royal Household is to be
had at all grocers.

speech -.nn intellect.
A lunn who has, by disease or Injury,
lost the faculty of talking ls generally
also unable to write, and lt Is only ln
exceptional cases tbat one of these
functions persists while the other Is ln
abeyance. Cases of tbls latter kind
show, however, that there are really
two separate centers for ths two faculties which are lying very close together and therefore generally suffer
at ths same time. If the disease affecting them be still mors extensive
the faculty of lutelligeut pantomime or
gesticulation is likewise abolished. Persons who have entirely lost their language may still be able to play chess,
backgammon and whist, and they have
been observed to cheat at cards with
some ingenuity, 'ihey may also be
sharp ln business mutters, facts tending to show thnt speech and Intellect
do not run ln Identical grooves.
The struBitlr-s of a Seelptor.
Augustin Rodin, the French sculptor,
bad a great struggle with poverty and
adverse criticism in bis youth. Of an
episode of this early period a writer
says: "With that Inflexible will and
singleness of purpose that never failed
him throughout his carter the young
sculptor sot himself to express la elsy,
marble or bronze bis conception of life
and art. Ho used his lelsur* la working at nighttime, In a deserted stable
be had transformed Into a studio, at
bit wonderful mask of "The Man Willi
the Broken Nose.' After eighteen
months of hard and patient labor he
finished this mask and sent lt to the
salon. It took the hanging committee
fourteen years to discover any merit
ln the work, for it wus rejected In 1864
and finally accepted only In 1878."
Odd —vllnpbs.
A correspondent of the Chicago Record-Herald contributes a few odd epitaphs from cemeteries ln various parts
of tbls country. The following Is
found on a tombstone in a cemetery at
Trenton, N, J. Although ths fact Is
not stated ln ths Inscription, It would
appear that the subject was a scale-
maker or had something te da with
weighing machines:
His ways were ways of plsasantness
In all life's fitful dream:
He struck a balance with ths world,
And than h« kicked tbt besra.
In tht cemetery tt Copp's Hill, Mass.,
is found th* following epitaph:
■acred to tin Memory ef
Hannah,
Beloved wife of Rd Gerllorj.
She slipped her wind

His Soaaeatlon.
A well known author, according to
Harper's Weekly, was once introduced
to a fascinating but frivolous widow ln
Philadelphia. Tbat evening the fair
oue had beeu Indulging in tender reminiscence of the depa-ted. "Ah," she
sighed, "no other man can ever fill dear
Jack's place. I loved blm from the
bottom of my heart"
"True," suggested the writer, who
was aware of the lady's weakness,
"but, remember, there's always room
at the top!"
Saved.
"You tay both bis legs were shot
off?"
"Yes."
"How did he ever get home—seven

"Wby, he said tbe shrieks of the
wounded made his flesh creep so that

Harvard Lampoon.
A Distinction.
"Things have come to a pretty pnss,"
stormed the legislator whose request
for free transportation had been refused.
"No, there Is no pretty pass this
year," responded the railroad official,
who, while a person of humor, was
withal a stickler for accuracy—Philadelphia Press.

of the death of Cornelius, which occurred bi Plkt county, l'u., but the account says that bo was born ln 170*.

Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For all article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the llttest applies
to business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.
