On Their Shape Depends the Force of
Birds' Wing Strokes.
Scientists call the "wishbone" the
furcula, and it Is, the union of what
are in man two collar bones. These
receive the brunt of the strokes of. the
wing that turn the creature in its
Few of us appreciate the strength
of the stroke of the bird's wing. A
swan has been known to break a
man's leg by a blow of Its wing, and
in like manner the wing beatings of
the larger birds are dangerous if they
strike the human head or face. If,
therefore, a large bird is in the habit
of making sudden turns to right or
left in its flight it must be fitted with
a "wishbone" capable of withstanding
the great strain of the wing stroke on
the one side when unaccompanied by
action on the other.
For this reason we find in the eagle
and birds of its class that turn quickly
a furcula that is a perfect Roman
arch, widely at variance with the
Gothic arch, which is the shape of the
"wishbone" of our common fowls. The
eagle's furcula is everywhere equally
strong and lacks those points of weak
ness that make our sport of breaking
the "wishbone" possible. Harper's
Lord Brougham's Oratory.
We have no orator in the least like
Lord Brougham since the close of
Brougham's public career. Everything
that nature could do so far as appear
ance, manner and voice were concern
ed she had done to prevent him from
being a great orator, and yet a great
orator he undoubtedly was. . I wonder
what the house of lords just now
would think of a peer who gesticu
lated and bellowed as Brougham was
in the habit of doing. But It was im
possible to listen to Brougham and
not be carried away by the force of
his Intellect, by his torrent of words,
by the sudden whirl and eddy of his
rapid Illustrations and by the longer
and shorter stretches of quietude and
repose into which his argument occa
sionally flowed. From Justin McCar
Scottish Students' Dress.
The Scottish university student has
a code of etiquette in clothes as strict
as that of Eton or of Harrow. And
into it the straw hat enters. On Sept.
15, be the weather ever so bleak, the
streets are full of what the small boy
knows as "strawbashers." On the 16th
you will find never a one on a stu
dent's head, that is. As for the medi
cal student, he seldom wears a straw
hat at all or anything In its place. It
is his pride to go bareheaded, as it is
to wear a fancy waistcoat and turned
up trouser ends. The arts and divinity
men sedately avoid these last three
fashions. London Chronicle.
The Forgotten Picture.
Mr. Hope Moncrieff recalls In "Lon
don" a curious story of Lord Hertford.
The one noble taste he had was for
the collection of pictures, which he is
said to have hung with their faces to
the wall. He once commissioned an
agent to find him a picture which, it
turned out, he had himself bought
three or four years earlier!
Fined For Blacklisting.
The law against blacklisting on the
statute books of Oklahoma was re
cently enforced against a railroad
company when an employee was
granted $1,000 damages for being dis
charged and refused a written rea
son for such discharge.
