Before the cold weather sets in they are all back again la  their old quarters.  Reindeer migrate with the same reg*  .ularity as swallows. They move south  when winter sets in, but as soou as over the snow begins to melt they travel  steadily north, sometimes for as much  as a thousand miles. i  To end a holiday by deliberate suicide is so strange a phenomenon that  for;a long time naturalists looked upon  the stories of the migration of the lemmings as an improbable fiction. Yet the  facts are beyond dispute. At irregular  intervals these ratlike creatures start  out from their homes in the fastnesses  of northern Scandinavia in huge droves  numbering tens of thousands and travel steadily southward. Death pursues  them in a hundred forms. Hawks and  other birds of prey hover above them.  Thousands are drowned in rivers. Yet  the rest struggle, on until they reach - .  the sea. They do not stop. They pluuge  In, swim out and struggle on until at  last their strength fails and they  drown. Not one ever returns from thi������  Journey of death.���������London Answers.

THE POWER OF WOMAN  Woman has a cold, impartial critic Dr. Emil Reich. In the January  number of the Grand Magazine he  supplements the opinion he expressed  at a lecture which he delivered recently.  "Nations differ in nothing more  than their women," says Dr. Reich,  nn.l turning to the subject of Am?r-  ican women he becomes c_ceeding.l>  bitter.  "I say it emphatically that the  American woman,, is not womanly.  She is not a woman.  "Jn America woman Commands  man. Man does not count there.  She livfes so that she can have a  good time.     She lives for sensations   She wants to be alone, and she  cannot be ahjiie without dabbling to  day with chemistry, tomprrow with  physiology,     and the day after with  B'irttjfisi-iT , She is made up  of restlessness and figgetiness long  before she' is twenty-five.

"Love is the goddess that rules  the heart ami Uie head; and it is the  keynote . keynote .to .everything. No  man can he a really great man unless  a woman's influence was shed on his  youth.
