A Tame Duckling-.
The extraordinary sight of a duckling
that has just shed its shell following a
young woman about the house with all
the affection of a pet dog is a domestic
wonder in the family of Mrs. Carr. Ever
since Easter mom the neighbors have
been dropping in to witness the spec
tacle, and the fame of tho singular at
tachment has attracted attention among
people who are interested in natural
phenomena of every description.
The little duckling has been in the
family since Easter Sunday, when it
was brought as a gift to Mrs. Carr'g
baby daughter, Serena, aged four years,
who was delighted with her new pet.
The duck at once struck up a long
friendship for tho domestic, Mary Mc
Cullough, and has been tho j-oung wom
an's constant companion ever since.
Whenever Mary speaks the duck re
sponds with the piping salutation and
waddles after the young woman wher
ever she goes. The most astonishing
thing about this freak of nature is that
if any other inmate of the household
attempts to induce it to answer, the
webfooted prodigy maintains a solemn
6ilence, but Mary has only to utter a
word when the quacking "begins and is
kept up until she has ceased speaking.
Philadelphia Times.
Mary's Claim.
A little girl is reported to have died
near the imaginary line in Oklahoma
which divided the recently opened res-
servations from the remainder of the
territory just as the signal was given for
the grand rush for lands. The child and
her father were alone and unknown, but
the beauty of the one and the still, deep
grief of the other moved the strong men
of the frontier to acts of admirable sym
pathy. A runner on a swift horse located a
homestead, and returning placed the
father of the dead girl in possession of
it. The bod- of the child was trans
ported to the claim and buried upon it.
Afterward it was discovered the re
maining one of the unfortunate couple
was absolutely penniless, and a purse of
money was given him with the hope that
the claim will prove a haven of rest to
him and that the homestead shall al
ways bo known as "Mary's claim."

Death from Ingrowing Toe Nail.
Some time ago there was published
the story of the death of a Long Island
physician from blood poisoning result
ing from an ingrowing toe nail. A well
known surgeon chiropodist said the
other day to the reporter: "The death of
that Long Island doctor is not the first 1
have heard of from the same cause.
"The cause of the disease is eoinrlon
and painful and usually directly trace
able to narrow toed shoes. It causes
pain as severe as a toothache and not
infrequently, when neglected, results in
blood poisoning. I know of an opera
tion for ingrowing toe nail in an English
.hospital where the patient suffered so
much pain that they gave him a mixture
of ether and chloroform. The operation
was successful, but when it was finished
the physicians found that their patient
had died from the chloroform." New

- To Preserve an Alpine Flower.
The diet of the Tyrol last week passed
a bill imposing heavy fines upon persons
fonnd selling any sample of the beauti
ful but rare Alpine flower called edel
weiss, which has been pulled up by the
roots on the mountains. A similar act
was passed seven years ago by the diet
of Salzburg, with a view to the preserva
tion of the edelweiss plant, which is
threatened with extinction in the Aus
trian Alps. In the Salzburg district the
success of this legislation i3, unfortu
nately, not encouraging.

The herring fishing season on the Sus

has been unprecedented. The pack will
amount to'over 00,000 barrels of salted
fish. The season open April 8 and cloaed
May 10. One fisherman caught 100 bar
rels of the fish with a dipnet in the out
let lock of the canal. It has been no un
common thing this season to take 200,

seines, which, when paid out, encircle?

A Lurid Comparison of the) Essential
Points mt the Religions That Have for
Their Konmlut lona the ltlble and the
liuruu Ixluii) Democracy.
M. Mismer could riot know the east
any better than he does if he had been
born there, and wo copy from his new
volume, "Souvenirs du Monde Mussul
man." a few w-jvfl views and considera
tions addressed especially to statesmen
and thinkers:
The greate r iortion of tho precepts of
the Ivorun have a meaning which es
capes us, because that meaning is at
variance with our ideas and our man
ners, and this is what gives rise to ik
litical errors of an incalculable reach.
Tho Mussuhnans do not fail to return
the attacks that are made upon them.
Conceding to us the advantage in a ma
terial ad scientific point of view, they
hold that the riches and learning of tho
few do not make tho happiness of the
many, and they claim superiority for
their moral ffnd social constitution.
Essentially democratic in its origin,
Islam has a sumptuary law which puts
a tax of 2J2 percent, upon the jewels of
women and upon all objects of luxury.
This money has served for centuries to
assist ioor tradesmen and to buy them
tools. Thanks to the prohibition of
wino and spirits, tho social problem is
solved for them. On seeing tho dangers
that hover over our civilization, the
Mussulmans compare it to the smoking
remains of a burned tent. They think
that if it should disappear in tho flames
of anarchy for want of an organic prin
ciple it would be incapable of rising
again from its ashes, while their faith
maintains order in everything, the con
dition sine qua non of progress.
"You accuse us," they say, "of being
depraved. Are 3011 less so, you who
keep up perpetual orgies in your great
cities, expose your half clad wives and
daughters at balls and feasts, and allow
them to bo whirled around in the arms
of anybody and everybody? You re
proach us for our ignorance. In order
to pass through life with honor your in
struction is not so good as ours. Thanks
to tho proverbs and the rules of wisdom
that are taught to our children, they
conduct themselves like little men.
With you the men, and even the
learned, conduct themselves like
liftlo children. You charge our
functionaries with venality. Who
contributes to its establishment if it is
not tho vulgar herd of traders of every
class that Europe has scattered all over
the east? You cry down our judiciary.
We too have a right to accuse yours. You
charge us with fatalism. Fatalists we
are, just like your learned men and j'our
philosophers, who base their calculations
upon the immutability of natural laws.
Resigned in the face of plagues, cata
clysms and death, we say It was writ
ten.' For the rest we follow the words
of tho prophet.
"One day the prophet asked an Arab
visitor what he had done with his camel.
The Arab replied, 'I have left him at
thy gate.' 'Hast thou tied him?' inquired
the prophet. 'No, I have left him to the
care of God.' 'Thou hast done wrong,'
said Mohammed. 'Thou shouldst first
have tied him, and then have recom
mended him to God.'
"The Christian doctrines of predesti
nation and of grace are more depressing
than our fatalism. Your ignorance of
Islam makes you confound Mussulman
slavery with ancient slavery and that
whit h existed until recently in Russia
and in Brazil. With the Mussulmans
thera are no slaves. All are brothers,
not in the Platonic sense of the Bible,
but actually, having the same laws and
tho same positive duties according to
the terms of the Koran. Unlike Chris
tianity, Islam has never treated as sal
able things, transmissible with the land,
troops of men who professed the com
mon faith, as was done with the serfs
of the Middle Ages, the moujiks of
Russia, and the negroes of your colonies.
Prisoners of war are the only slaves that
it recognizes, but their children are born
free, and they themselves can become
so by embracing Islam.
"It is the custom from time immemo
rial in certain countries for parents to
part with their children for money, in
order to ward off poverty and open np
to themselves a career of fortune. By
virttie of Mussulman equality this ca
reer is limitless in the east. How many
slaves have become pashas, generals
and ministers? Almost all the sultans
have been the sons of slaves. The black
slaves taken from central Africa find in
Egypt and in Turkey a fate incompar
ably superior to that of the slaves of
your colonies. Slavery is for savages
the first step toward civilization. If
their recruiting and their transportation
give rise to well founded protests, the
fault is not with Islam. Neither the
Bible nor the Koran is responsible for
"The Mussulmans proclaim the supe
riority of their Allah; but they acknowl
edge Moses as a prophet and Jesus as
Rouh Allah, the soul of God. Their
veneration for Jesus extends to the
mother. The immaculate conception,
introduced into Catholicism by Pius IX,
has been for twelve centuries a Mussul
man belief.
"To the extreme simplicity of the
dogma must be added the positive enjoy
ments which the paradise of Mohammed
onnoses. to the Diatonic joys of the
tjnnsnan paraaise. in oraei' to coiiip.o-
hend the resistance of Islam to all at
tempts at conversion. 'Christianity is
a menace, Islamism a promise, said
Napoleon I, and his opinion is worthy
of meditation." Pans r igaro.
Eating Before Sleeping.
Scientific men now delare that eating
before sleeping is of great benefit, and
that a bowl of bread and milk, a mug of

of interested listeners in a well known
Clark street spirting resort the other
night. "What was 1 doing up there,
you ask. Why, herding sheep, in order
to get together enough for a grub stake,
so that I might start out again on a
prospecting tour.

flowers, while the sunlight as it flick

"Wo had long before left civilization
behind us, when lato one evening wo
came out of tho woods into a littlu
mountain meadow that was known as
Crane's flats, and was tho headquarter
for a baud of cattle herders. Most of
them were Italians, but they gave us a
warm welcome. One of them in particu
lar attracted my attention. He was tall,
lithe and muscular, and walked with the
easy swing of a professional pedestrian.
His eyes were of bluish gray, and ho
seemed to bo a leader among his com
panions, all of whom wero swarthy and
dark eyed.
" 'If you can get that fellow to show
you some shooting you will seo some
thing wonderful in that line,' whispered
0110 of my companions.
" 'Who is he?' I asked.
" 'Italian Joe,' was the reply.
"I had heard of Italian Joe before. At
Sonora, at Cherokee, at the Confidence
mines and in a hundred other places his
fame as a rifle shot had been dinned into
my ears.
"Tho next morning I asked him to
give us an exhibition of his skill. Shoot
ing was his weak point, and he consent
ed. Unlike tho coy maiden, who can
sing, but wishes to be coaxed beforo she
does, he had his notes with him. Tak
ing a Colt's revolving rifle in his hands
he paced oil a hundred yards and pinned
a common cap box to tho trunk of a
huge oak. Coming back, he wheeled as
quick as lightning, and without sight
ing, apparently, he emptied tho cham
bers. Six of the shots were in a circle
around the edge, while tho Seventh was
a plumb center.
"Loading again, he glanced about
him. High up in the heavens a hawk
circled warily through the blue, looking
for something to prey upon. There wa3
a moment of hesitation, a quick report
and down came the hawk with a bullet
in his head. Pennies, dimes and quar
ters that were tossed in the air came
down with a bullet hole through them, j
He missed nothing that ho drew a bead
on. He could beat all the Carvers and
the Buffalo Bills that you ever saw."
"What became of him?" asked an
eager listener.
"He shot at a man and he didn't miss
him, either. Ho was captured by a band
of vigilantes, and when I came out of
the mountains in the fall his skeleton,
white and ghastly, was hanging to a
tree at the entran of the big basin.
The vultures had picked all the flesh
from the bones, and the sun, wind and
rain had bleached them to a snowy
whiteness. Pinned to a tree was this
inscription, written with charcoal upon
a pine shingle:
: de coui.n snooT too well, :
: AND WE Ul'.NQ HIM. '

Effect of Gravitation.
If a man weighing twelve stone were
to be transferred to the moon, the weight
of his body, measured, at least, by the
attraction which the moon would exer
cise upon it, would be reduced to about
two stone. If his muscles and his frame
remained the same, it would seem as it
he would be able to jump over a wall
twelve feet high on the small globe
without any greater exertion than would
be required to clear a wall two feet high
on the earth. Good Words.
Mountain Lions Are Great Cowards.
Mountain lions are the greatest cow
ards in the mountains, although people
who are not familiar with them believe
that they stretch out on limbs of trees
and pounce upon unsuspecting travel
ers. I will guarantee to take an ordi
nary hickory club and chase any lion
in the mountains, although I have one
hide at home measuring nine feet from
