He felt proud of the inspiration. "And

Thomas and Angeline were enjoy

the extreme and they expected to
cause excitement on their arrival at
Sunday school. When Banket got

Rufus Steele. In "Mustangs. Busters
and Outlaws of the Nevada Wild Horse
Country." In the American Magazine,
tells of the glorious sport of capturing
and training wild horses. "Busting"
is no sport for a novice. Real busters
are trained to the game from child
hood. He writes:
"A touch of the spur or a flick of
the quirt signals the start. His knowl

from his ancestors, for all horses do

Curious Way of Catching Fish.
Indians of Bolivia have a peculiar,
method of going fishing. A writer In ,
the Geographical Journal says: "They
use the milk of the manuna or "soli-'
man tree, the scientific name of which
is. I think. Hura crepitans, of the
euphorbia genus, for catching fish. I :
went with some of the Indians to a i
lagoon In the forest. Here, floating on
the surface of the water, perfectly :
alive and yet absolutely unable to get
away, were fish of all kinds, big and
small, from which they, selected the
most palatable for food. The milk is
merely poured Into the water, and as
It spreads every fish which comes in
contact with It becomes paralyzed and
yet Is not affected as food. Moreover,
the effect appears to last for several
days withoct killing the fish. The milk
is also used as a cure for toothache, as
a caustic and for the purpose of sui
cide, for which a teaspoonful is em
ployed. As a poison they say the re

Rulers of England.
The first to rule over all England was
Egbert, king of Wessei. who united
all the various petty kingdoms and be

greater kingdom was disrupted from
S7S to 95S, when the Danes ruled north
of the Thames. In the latter year King
Edgar reunited the kingdom, and since
that time it has never been partitioned.
Between Edmund Ironside (1016) and
Edward the Confessor (1042) three
Danish kings ruled all England Ca
