among the Liberals over Royal GrantB
and Gladstone, Sir William Vernon Harcourt and Parnell will support the Government. Morley will move an amendment

Gladstone cannot induce Labouchere to
withdraw hia motion to substitute for
the committee's report, an address to the

the statement that he was leaving the
country and had ordered the documents
to be destroyed wa*i an error. A number of documents belonging to the Land
League were recovered from Sexton's
houae in BlesBington Street, Dublin, in
1882. WitnesBes'a wife was empowered
to draw League checks. Maloney did
not know wby she was empowered except that the Ladies League, of which
she was treasurer, was assisting in the
Land League work.
Millar, an officer of the National Bank,
deposed that no Parnellite had evej suggested to him that checks and bankbooks of the Land League be destroyed.
Tyrell, cashier of the bank, stated that

books last February. He did not examine
them to see whether or not they contained documents material to the enquiry.

the matter of the claim of Creek Indians
for "400.000 under a treaty by which

WasbinKton, July 24.—Dr. H. M,
Allen, Secretary of the Corean Legation,
an American who spent many years in
Corea, said there could not possibly bo
any truth in the story that Mrs. Heron,
wife of an American missionary to Corea.
had been condemned to death for teaching Christianity. He said that such a
thing could not be done there without
making a big sensation and tbat the
American Minister would certainly know
of it and inform his Government, Mra.
Heron, he said, was not a missionary or

It isn't much wonder that young
women paint, powder and bleach,
when it is known that the average
young man is more readily attracted
by these tricks than by true womanly
graces. This is probably not true of
the wife hunter, but it certainly is of
the young man who is merely desir
ous of being entertained.
Tlio average young woman is font'
of being told that sho is good looking,
tbat she is of good form and carriage!
She takes it aa a higher compliment
to be considered attractive than to be
regarded as sensible, intelligent and
practical.
Men like to preach down extravagance and style and dress; but she

scar under a piece of court plaster,
who uses pretty gloves and stockings,
trim slippers, perfumes, balms, cold
creams, linger curls and fancy notions

Tho is admired by them all. Corn-
men sense and ugliness may be morally wholesome, but they're not alluring, and art is liable to trample over
nature unadorned.
Young woman may deny it, yet the
fact remains that their chief object in
life is to win husbands. It is their
nature, and it is right. If you ask a
married lady how she captured her
husband she will tell you she does not
know, and probably all that he can
tell is that it was her winning ways.

It is odd how confusing some little problems In figures will sometimes be. A gentleman sat In a business man's office writing a
letter, the proprietor being close at hand.
When he had finished he asked for a stamp,
and his friend pulled open a drawer in the
desk and handed him one of the little portraits
of George Washington. The guest gave him
a nickel, and was tn return given three pennies. As he was placing these in his pocket
he thought of playing a trick, and dropping
one ot tlie pennies produced the other two,
saying: "Why, here, George, 1 could have
given you the exact amount," at the same
time tendering him the coppers. His friend
took tbem and gave back the nickel be still
held, pocketing the pennies without a word
of protest. The guest departed, but the next
day came In again, and he was greeted by
the proprietor the first thing with: "Say,
Tom, about that stamp." He got no further,
for the laugh on the visiter? face showed
him the job had been put up,—Chicago Herald.

traction was mutual. If the real man
and thc real woman were the attractive features it were well; but if beauty, dress or fortune attracted them
their happiness is far from being assured.
A man's heart is ensnared by a preb
ty hand, nice teeth, a round, low
voice, frank eyes, beautiful hair; by
the way a girl walks, talks, plays,
rides; by her gifts, her smiles, her
amiability, good taste, generosity, or
the manner in which she greets, fascinates or abuses him. She may not
kuow how she won him, but if she
doesn't know how to keep him the
best thing for her to do is to find out.
Thero are many things we know bv
intuition; the rest have to be learned
by experience. Conscious of her abilities and inabilities as a wife, a wise
woman will learn to keep a husband
just as she learns how to keep house.
Meu are susceptible, oven more so
than women.
Tbere is this difference: The average man imiuircs whether he is in
condition to marry, Tlio average woman doesn't. If the man pleases her
fancy sho is satisfied. She may not
be able to play any part in the new
drama except to hang npon his neck
and coax to bo potted.
Such a wifo is a burden to any man.
Sho doesn't understand him, neither
does sho know the chief constituents
of a home.
Tho wifo wbo ukesan interest in
home, in her husband's affairs, and
finds pleasure in contributing to his
..oiiifort and happiness is a treasure oi
greater value than a gold mine.
The wifo who has no higher am
bition than to bo kept alive is a poor
investment.
The average man has very littlo use
for a smart woman. She is full of
schemes, and is ambitious to shine. Her
disposition is anything but domestic,
and sho is not the most genial companion for a man whose mind is taken
up with business affairs. He doesn't
caro how intelligent she is, but he
hasn't much use for her if she is
smart.
Men like to be looked up at, depended on, quoted and referred to. An
ugly temper is a trial that few women
are able to endure. The only cure is
silence. You can't kiss a furious man;
it only makes him worse. The thing
to do is to keep still, let him cool, anu
let the matter drop. He will respect
your sense and come to terms of his
own accord.
Men must be taken as they are, not
as they should bo; they improve under the refining influence of mutual
love, and ho is a wretched specimen
of humanity who cannot be counted
on to shield his wife from the buffets

RAILWAY  BATES.
Baltimore, Md., July 24.—The General
Passenger Association of trunk lines
have allowed the apulication of tho Baltimore A Ohio Road for a rate of two per
cent a mile for parties of ten to lie over
until its legality is decided by the Interstate Commission, upon a complaint
filed by the Pittsburg, Cincinnati A St.
Louie Railroad. To this complaint the
Baltimore & Ohio will reply to the Commission tbat the complaint has no atand-
ing, based on a former det-ision of thc
Commission that railroads cannot make
a charge against each other, and that
there is no diacrimination in the rate of
two cents a mile for parties of ten, as thc
same privilege is open to all who will
avail themselves of it.

with tin, lead and spelter. The metals
are valued at $150,000. The firm to
which the cargo is consigned is no longer
in existence and ils members nre dead.
A WOMAN  BEATEN TO DEATH.
Manchester, N. II., July 24.—Walter
Towns waB arrested to-night charged
with the murder of hia wife who died today from the effects of terrible beatings
inflicted by Towns on Sunday and Monday. The woman, in a '.'onscious moment
just before death, accused her husband
of tbe crime. He denies the charge and j
says the woman's injuries were caused !
by a fall.
youth and beauty  have proved unfaithful.
To bo born a woman is to be born a
martyr, but the husband that is worth
wedding is worth keeping: and if a
little artifice, u pleasant smile, a contented heart, forbearance, devotion and
tact will hold him, by all means let
him bo held.—Pittsburg Commercial
Gazette.
A Net. ('until System.
A new system of ctinal construction
has been designed and recently patented by an Englishman. The object is
to do away entirely with tho necessity
for steam or liorso power in canal
traffic, and this end is sought to be attained by the creation of a current of
water strong enough to carry the boats
along from point to point Mr. Pick-
ard lias designed n double canal, at
ono ond of which is u screw, resembling tho propeller of a steamship. This
screw, which is worked by steam
power, forces the current in one direction und causes it to return in the parallel division of the canal, the direction
of the current being reversible at wiU. •
By this arrangement all loss of water
is obviated and tho bed of the canal is
kept clean. This current is, of course,
confined to each separate level of
canal, and when locks intervene another current has to be created.—New
Orleans Picayune.
NEGROES SHOOT.
New Orleans, July 24.—The

After church laBt night at Frenton, two

Whether Behring Sea should bo held an

did not form a part ol the
Dominion ol Canada, and na- indeed but,
little known to the Home Government,
but now it." interests will have to be considered in any future arrangement como
to between the I'nited Stales and Great
Britain. The principles embodied in the (
treaty ot ITS'*., with respect to great ocean
fishing banks, estuaries like the St. Law-1
rence, and other similar parts of the
open sea. will become applicable lo lhe
great-fishing banks north of the Aleutian
Islands, The advantages and disadvantages imposed upon American (ishermeit

extremely desirable tliat the Briiisb and
American Governments should come to I

ensuing Maritime Conference the precise
limits of the exclusive rights of British

We also hope that those limits antl tights

To revel where dances

Shame on the brown thrushes

More worthy my singing

As far as we know at present, the

Kills Qeolfro una!  Shakespeare.
A fashionable authoress of the lost
century was Miss Fanny Burney,
whose "Evelina" delighted Dr. Johnson and Sir Joshua Reynolds. Wlien
she had becomo famous sho was the
guest of Mrs. Delanoy, a venerable,
cultured lady, who lived at Windsor,
not far from the castle where George
IU and Queen Charlotte resided. The
king and queen frequently called on
their neighbor, and shy Miss Fanny al
such times sought her own room.
But one afternoon she and Mrs. Delanoy were in thedrawing room, when
suddenly the door opened. A large
man entered, who shut the door without speaking. Tho star on his breast
revealed to Miss Burney that sho stood
in the presenco of the long. Sho retreated to tho wall. Tho king advanced to his hostess and in a loud
whisper asked if thut was Miss Burney.
Upon being assured that it was he
drew near nnd entered into conversation with her.
"But what—what—how was it—how
came you—how happened it—what—
what—what}" ho asked, in his usual
odd manner. Believing ho referred
to "Evelina," sho replied lhat it had
been written at odd hours for timtiso-
ment.
"But your publishing—your printing—how wns tbnt- what—what?" ho
naked: to which she answered: "I
thought, sir, it would look well in
print," at which he wns vastly amused.
Soon she becamo familiar with tho
presenco of royalty, and on ono occa
sion had tho auvantago of hearing his
majesty's criticisms on somo famous

littlo better than a fool.

! continue to believe that they are un-

j turn  to the different  forms of force
and energy by  which, with matter,
i the universe reveals itself to our sen-

are all  readily changed from ono to
the other  witli tho greatest easo.    A
pound of -coal  or pure carbon will,
when oxidized or  burnt, always produce exactly so many units of heat.
From this heat just so much power or
work can  bo obtained and  no moro;
this power will produce an  invariable
number of units of olectricity or magnetism;   and   tho   electricity,    when
transformed inlo chemical action, will
decompose  a  definite    weight  of   a
chemical  compound.     Every   pound
of coal, every ounco of food, represents a certain amount of energy, and
by no possibility can a greater amount
be obtained from it.   It is tho legiti

to utilizo all this energy in tho form

Minister Spiders.
Far up in the mountains of Ceylon
and India there is n spider that spins
a web like bright yellow silk, tho central net of which is five feet in diam
eter, while tho supporting lines, or
guys, as they aro called, measure sometimes ten or twelvo feet long; and
riding quickly in tho early morning

threads twining round your face like
a laco veil; while as the creature who
has woven it lakes up his position in
the middle, ho generally catches you
right on the nose, aud though ho sol
dom bites or strings, the contact of his
large body nnd long legs is anything
but pleasant. If you forget yourself
aud try to cateh him, hite lie will,
aud, though not venomous, his jaws
aro as powerful as a bird's beak, and

A ComlbrtiililG  Vitiiv of Crime.
It will throw somo light on tho in
habitants of Fernando do Noronha to
know how crime is looked upon by
the common peoplo in Brazil, and 1
cannot better show this than by relating a bit of personal experience.
I had the misfortune at ono time to
wound a Brazilian laborer—in his dignity. Ho thereupon threatened to take
my life, and was by no means careful
to keep his resolution to himself. As
the carrying out of such a determination on his part would have caused
me much inconvenience, I called upon
him in person, "vith the purpose, if
possible, of dissuading him.
I found that he did not look upon
the condition of a criminal with dread
at all. He told mo frankly that, if he
should succceeed in carrying out his
design, ho knew perfectly well what
his career would be. "At present,"
said he, "1 am obliged to work for a
living; if I am sent to jail, my living
will bo furnished me, and I shall have
nothiug to do. If you aro dead, there
will be no ouo to appear against me in
the courts as my accuser, and in the
courso of a year or less I shall be set
free, well rested, aud with the reputation in the community of being a man
of courage."
In this caso I saw to it that he had
tho opportunity of enjoying the coveted otium cum dignitate in jail without having to commit a crime. But
In a country whero wrong doing sets
so lightly upon the cotuoianco, and
where it so frequently goes altogether
unpunished, the criminal class is large

tier in Popular Scionco Monthly.
Au Improved Oven Thermometer.
A device to be applied to the oven
doors of cooking stoves, etc., to indicate the exact heat of the oven for
baking purposes and also applicable
to other stoves, hot air furnaces and
ranges, has been patented by Camilla
Juher and James 0. Robinson, of
Hanging Rock, O. Upon the inside of
the door is attached a hammered brass
or other strip of more expansible metal
than tho cast iron of which the door
is made, this strip being attached to the
door at its ends. Secured centrally to
the strip is a stem fitted to slido
through an aperture in the door, and
having an inclined projection or nose
on its outer end. In engagement with
this nose is an index pivoted to tho
door, tho index being extended to
travel over a graduated dial, and thus
indicate tho degrees of heat within the
oi'eii.—Scientific American.

noted tho rapid manner in which he

The Cobra's Revenge.
It is commonly belioved among tho
Hindoos that no animal is more revengeful than tho cobra, and that if a
person attempts to kill it, or does kill
its mate, it nover rests until it has
wreaked vengeance. An employe of
tho Madras Railway company, while
seated on tho veranda of his bungalow,
observed two large cobras on tho barren plain immediately in front of tho
houso. Arming himself with a sharp
cutlass, he sallied forth and succeeded
in killing ono of the reptiles, but tho
other, although wounded, made ita
escape. Ho then returned to his bungalow, and, later in tho day; prepared
to dress, when ho was horrified to see
a cobra coming in at tho window. Ho
fled in alarm, and when he returned
with a gun the snake had disappeared.
The next night, when returning home,
ho wan pui-siied by tlie sumu make,
and had nil ho could do to escape.
This had such an effect on his mind
that ho made application for a change
to another division; but before the application could bo granted the vengeful cobra actually attacked him one
evening while at tea and bit liim on
the leg. The other guests, killed the
snake, but the man never recovered In
spite of the best medical aid.—Philadelphia Times.

"I have but one story," he replied, '■
"that will much interest you, but I do
not often tell it," and I saw a tear
glistening in his eye.
I told  nim we would be pleased to ;
boar   Ilia titory, but  dial not   wiali   fa.i  ;
him to call anything to remembrance
that would cause him grief. He re
plied: "The wound has been healed
these many years, though often now
it seems to bleed afresh; but my story
now I will tell.
"I was born in tho northern part of !
Vermont. My father was a farmer.
and as I was the only child, my fa
ther gave mo the homestead. He diet! !
•quite young and the care of tho farm
devolved on me. My mother soon
becamo lame and unable to do the
work, aud I resolved to marry. Dear
Louisa, a farmer's daughter who
lived but a fow miles away, was the
ono to whom I gave my heart and
hand, and indeed, sho was worthy o{
the love of any man. My mother soon
after died, and wo laid ner besido her
husband in the churchyard.
"Two children wero born to us,
Tommy and Louisa, We watched
over them in their infancy, and loved
them dearly. Tommy was 7, and
Ijouie, as we called her, was 5. School
was to commence tho next Monday,
and as they had never been to school,
we made arrangements to send them.
The schoolhouso was about one-half
a mile off, beyond a piece of woods.
I went with them the flrst and second
day, and met them at night, as they
wore afraid to go through the woods
alono; but tho third day Tommy said,
'Papa need not go with us any more,
we can go alone.' I granted their
wish, and soon saw them disappear,
going toward the schoolhouse, swinging their little dinner pails.
"They had beeu gone but a few
minutes. I had taken up my ax, and
was about commencing to cut some
wood. I heard little Tommy scream i
'O dear, papal O dear, papal' burst
upon my ears; and at the samo moment I heard littlo Lulie call mamma,
mammal It is needless to say that I
rushed to thoir rescue, tightly grasping my ax. In ono minute I saw two
wolves tearing my dear children to
pieces. With an unearthly yell, I
rushed upon them. Ono left my child
and sprung upon me; he lay dead the
next instant. I sprang upon the other
that was tearing the flesh from the
cheek of my littlo girl; but he ran
swiftly away. Poor little Lulie was
dead; little Tommy raised his torn
and bloody hand, and faintly said:
'O papa, I wish you come forel' It
was his last words; in a few moments
he breathed his last. I took my dear
ones in my arms, and carried them to
my house. My wifo was at the barn.
I lay them on tho bed; my wife soon
came in, She looked upon her children, uttered a fearful wail of sorrow,
and fell almost lifeless upon the floor!
Tlie shock was too much for her, and
indeed, more than many mothers
could have stood, and within one
month sho died a raving maniac. She
sleeps in Vermont beside her dear babes
she loved so well." When he had finished his story there was not a dry eye
in the camp, and for some time not a
word was spoken. But the evening
waa far spent, and wo soon retired to
our beds to dream over the events of
the day. —Thomas A. Crabtree in Lewiston Journal.

The Canal, of Mars.
As to the nature of the canals, it is
still moro difficult to suggest any satisfactory explanation. Several hypotheses have been presented, none of
which appears entirely to meet the
case. I navo already remarked that
there has not been lacking the suggestion that theso curious streaks represent the lines of actual artificial water
courses ou Mars. The straight and
undeviating course which they pursue
might be regarded as lending some
degree of probability to such a view;
but tho enormous scale on which they
exist seems to compel the rejection of
the hypothesis. It is true that, if we
consider only the influcnoo of the
forco of gravity on Mars, giants could
dwell upon that planet whose
mechanical achievements might vastly
surpass the greatest performances of
our engineers; for a body weighing a
ton on the earth would weigli only
seventy hundred and sixty pounds on
Mars, and, ou tho other hand, a mau
on Mars possessing relatively the
same activity as one of us might bo
fifteen feet tall aud strong in proportion. But, even granting tho existence of such a race of Qoliaths on our
neighbor world, it is not conceivable
that thoy could have constructed a
system of tremendous canals over half
the surface of their planet, or that
they would have done it if they could.
The canals of Mars are enormously
disproportioncd in magnitude to the
most gigantic inhabitants that a due
regard for the law of gravitation
would suffer us to imugino there.—

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned foi
itself, not only in Hindustan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and wc shall be
glad to hear of its nndinf a place in every
Anglo-Im-Uan hunic. Tlie other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary cflicacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhi?,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cram pi,
Nr-iralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a*., general Sedative, that have ouijrred
und-c our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used '.ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro] '
fession and the public, as we -.n* ofthe j 0 T] 0 0111 111 fi Y C 1 3,1 StTftPt

Once upon n time ;i family ei Crickets
living iu a certain newly built ondgoodly-
siied barn sent word to another family «f
Crickets living in another barn on an is-
land(frhich was certainly u good deal older j
though filled with beautiful black dia-,
in.jiids), that they wonld pay their cousins i
friendly visit ami indulge in some
harmless sports and pastimes. The home
family, with tht well-known hospitality
ul .'rickets generally, gave tlieir visitors
ilie very best thing! to est anil think
whieh they were able to find; more especially as on the arrival of their cousins
their hearts wanned towards the~n,as"hey
were pleasant to look upon. Now an old
and mangy Jackal, who had not had a
square meal fnr several days, tried every
way to get an invitation to this feed bnt
without success, for, said lhe family of
crickets "this unwholesome old jackal
once maligned our cousins; besides
though ho bttdl" wants a seal at our table
we prefer to have only crickets to eat ami j
.Irink with us." At lust the jackal lifted '
up his voiee nml whined, saying thai I
though he was a hord-worked and homely j
creature, yet wus he honest. The home-
liness was unanimously agreed lo hy ihe ]
crickets, hut much did they doubl his J
honesty. Whereupon this poor old |
jackal, when he found that his endeavor!.
were fruitless, hied him to his hole yelping out that alter all, these crickets knew
not how to behave in a seemly manner
seeing that they liked not  his company.

The houso is not without traditional
interest, for it was iu tho last century
the scene of a romantic elopement. It
was then 1 ho residence of Mr. Child, the |
opulent banker of Templo Bar, who had
au only daughter, the heiress of his
enormous   wealth.   The Earl of West-
moreland paid attentions to the  young I   .Kitrly yesterday -roming
lady, but his suit waa not encouraged by Is silver watch,
her lather, who wished his daughter to ; same by calling
marry a younger son, and form a new I proving
family,   which   should  perpetuato   tho
name of Child.    Nothing daunted, Lord
Westmoreland  determined  to make a
clandestine marriage at, Gretna  Green.
In order lo make good  tho heroine's escape it was necessary to evade tho vigilance of her duenna, who slept iu the
room through which that of the heiress
was approached. So the old lady's posset  Cl ,
was drugged, and she slept tho sleep of September 9th 10 21 lUfiti
tho just while her young charge slipped
out into Berkeley square, where Lord
Westmoreland was waiting with his
traveling carriage. But, unluckily, in
their eagerness to ho off, tho fugitives
left tho front floor ajar, and tho watchman coming round soon afterward
alarmed the house.
The (light was discovered, and Mr.
Child, ordering out his carriage, set forth
In pursuit. All night long and till next
day the angry father raced his errant
daughter, and, as they nearedfhe border,
he began to gain on the fugitives. Then
Lord Westmoreland drew his pistol and
.hot) Hi'. Child's loual.ji-.ler.il    'I'he victory
was won, the ohase was over, and the
young couple wero duly married by the
blacksmith. .Meanwhile Mr. Child returned In high dudgeon to London, and
made a will leaving all his wealth, over
his daughter's head—uot to her sons, for
so he would have enriched tho earldom
of   Westmoreland—but   to   her eldest
daughter.    Thus tho principal interest
in tbo great bunking house passed to
Lady Sarah   Sophia  Child   Fane, who
married the Karl of Jersey and was the
grandmother of tbo present peer.   Sho
was for fifty years one of tbe best known
figures iu the society of Loudon, and is

An amorous couple has decided to win
thc bedroom set offered by the
Foresters for any two who will be married
on the grounds during their fete. Several
other couples had been thinking over
the matter. The Colonist remarks that
events of this kind arc doubly interesting
"when flavored with romance," We confess we are utterly unable to see the "romance" in this' ease. Sflrely getting
married in order to gain a new bedroom
suite is rather a novel rendering of
romance.

Vesterday afternoon two prisoners who 1
were working on the chain gang under
the supervision of A. Hamilton, convict
guard, made a bold break for liberty
while employed near the new courl
hotiBC. One of the prisoners, named
Brown, alias "Catch" was serving out a
sentence for the larceny of a watch from
u young man named Ganner antl the
otlier was a negro answering to the
title of Wandering Todd. The letter's
offense, consisted in endeavoring lo carve
his superior officer, Captain Cibson, of
the ship Wilna. Directly the alarm was
given several persons were onlisted as
special policemen and the partv gave
chase. When tbey arrived at Ihe corner
of the Coinox road near Dr. Piasger's
new residence ihey met Dr. Davis accompanied by his dog "Chippy" wbo went
sniffing around and finally located something up a small fir tree at which she
began growling. Constable Hamilton,
ever on Ihe alert to retrieve his good
name, walked quickly over towards the
tree and spotted one oi his loBt
lambs, the negro Todd' perched airily
in the branches. Pointing a revolver in
the air ins significant manner he requested Todd to descend to terra firms
which he «litI with alacrity, and was
marched lo jail followed hy an admiring
crowd. In Ihe meantime the other
prisoner. Brown, had made good use of
his liberty and cleared nut, antl when
last Been was running al full speed under
the trestle work that spans the Mill-
stream. Brown had, on escaping, made

There havo been two scientific facts
discovered through tho mediumship of
tho Zoological garden, about which tha
publlo havo been kept in ignorance.
Early ono morning in Thompson's timo
Herr Schmidt went out to see tho oldsea
lion nnd her baby. He was astonished
to seo tho mother with tho young down
on the edgo of tho bridge, vomiting some
sort of oil all over it. Thinking something wrong, ho at onco called Thompson, who, seeing tho operation of the
mother, said, "That"s funny," and great
was the astonishment of both when the
mother nosed the young 0110 into tho
water. He floundered about and got
back on to the bridge. Sho nosed him
in again aud kept on repeating the dose
for fivo or six times, then took tho young
one and carried him into tho house.
"I'vo learned something good therefrom
not known to scientist*, and that is that
tho mother seal oils her youug with oil
from her stomach before sho teaches
Ihem to swim. That's something new in
natural history. Tlie other discovery
was that young grizzlies weigh at birth
only about a pound or a pound and a
quarter, and the way thoy taught their
cub to swim was funny. The father
would push the cub into tho water,
where it would paw and flounder, then
0'l,*i I both mother aud father would go to tho
