NOI8Y BIRDS OF THE NIGHT.
Have to Call Loudly to Attract Their
All tho night birds nro noisy. They
cannot consort with ono another In
happy tympanies as do tho warblers
and thrushes and finches, and sing
nnd whisper, but must call loudly nnd
long to one another in tho darkness.
On consts where petrels and certain
other night-hunting seublrds abound,
all day sitting on their eggs or hiding
In burrows, you will hear no sound
from morning till night, but after dark
tho air Is filled with shrill cries. The
loud, reiterated calling of the South
ern chuck-will's-wldow, nnd of Its
Northern cousin, are familiar. A
whipporwlll will sound Its cry several
hundred times In succession without
a pnuso. Owls hoot, or utter a harsh
sort of laughter, rarely pleasant to
listen to, nnd nlght-herons and bit
terns squnwk nnd boom. Sweet songs
occasionally heard in tho dnrkness are
those of wakful day birds, as tho
nightingale, or our own oven-bird.

Tom Marshall's Scathing Reply to
Young Louisville Fop.
One of Kentucky's national law
makers furnishes this good story
nbout Tom Marshall:
When the science of phrenology first
began to uttract public nttcntkin. a
lecturer on that line turned up in
Louisville and gavo talks, .us well as
made examinations of a largo number
of craniums. Marshall attended ono
of these "exhibitions." Ho was about
"half-seas over." After tho lecture and
demonstration closed Marshnll and a
crowd of friends went to the Gait
houso to "liquidate" and talk over tho
newly discovered science Marshall
declared that ho could 'phtenologlzo
as well as the lecturer; that It was a
rank fake and tho fellow ought t. bo
rocked out of town." Marshall wns re
quested to go into tho parlor and ex
amine a few heads. This he eonsentod
to do, and a numbor of ladles and gen
tlemen wero entertained by the bril
liant man ns ho called off the dlffcient
"bumps" and ground out yard alfr
yard of good nnd bad qualities ol head
owners. Ho know most of the crowd
and mndo a vast amount of inn.
It happened that among tho. o pits
cut a Louisville fop, of scare amonv.
of brains, distinguished lor his lor
wardneBS and egotism, was left out ';
Marshall. To this the fop obJcui,
tolling him that his head had not been

Remarkable In the Lower Branches of
A fow days ngo, wiicn they brought
oio a fine specimen, about four inches
'ong, of that strange creature the sea
mouse, dredged from the sandy bot
tom of Loch Hyan, I began to specu
late darkly upon tho significance of
the generic name Aphrodlta, bestowed
ipon this lowly lnvertcbrnto by Lam
atack. Tor It Is no mouse, but a
worm, belonging U) tho class Anne
lida, animals which, being still In a
primitive stage of development, enjoy
the enviable privilege of being able to
replace any organ, oven a head, of
which they may bo bereft by accident
At first sight no living creature is
less suggestivo of the goddess of love,
Its general outline being thut of a gi
gantic wood louse and its structure
but nn oblong mass of Integument and
viscore. Yet on second thought, It
appears not Inappropriately termed

an extraordinary loveliness of color.

LIFE PROLONGED BY SUCCESS.
Victory Over World Means New Vital
ity and New Powers.
It is new well known that increased
complexity of life with increased ex
penditure distinctly adds longevity.
Luxury, "the fertile parent of a whole
family of diseases." modifies It greatly,
yf course, but this Is a manageable
We have only to recall personal ex
perience to renlizo the force of Intel
lectual stimulation. The Interest of
sport will sustain men without fatlguo
for distances they otherwise could not
traverse. The excitement of striro
will often mask the presence of
wounds. Self-forgetfulness in all the
walks of life, under tho stress of lovo,
ihlvnlry or accepted duty, doubles hu
man endurance. Success gives new vi
tality, new powers, and this is another

FLATTERY AND REAL PRAISE.
Distinction That Is Worthy of Careful
"We sometimes fancy wo hato fiat
ery, when In truth It Is the manner of
It wo disllkb," said La Rochefoucauld.
Stripped of its cynicism, tho saying
comes to this: that whllo praiso is
eternally pleasant, there are fashions
in flattery, and thoso fashions change
very completely. Flnttery Is innocent
or desplenblo, not according to wheth
er or not It oversteps the limits of tho
accurnto, Dut whether or not it pro
ceeds from an Interested or a disin
terested motive. There aro momenta
when a truo statement of honorific
fact mndo for the selfish purposo of
tho speaker may bo gross flattery,

PRESIDENT ORDERS ACTION.
Commissioner Garfield to Begin In
vestigation Into Standard Oil.
Washington, Feb. 17. President
Roos?velt has directed James It. Gar
field, uimmissloner of corporations of
the department of commerce and la
bor, to begin Immediately the oil In
vestigation requested by the house of
representatives In a resolution adopt
ed unanimously. Tho Investigation,
by direction of the president, will bo
rigid and comprehensive.
The inquiry will bo pressed ns rap
idly as possible. Representative
Campbell of Kansas, author of tho
resolution adopted by tho house, had
a conference with President Roose
volt. Mr. Campbell's Idea Is that the
investigation should concern partic
ularly tho situation In the Kansas
field, but ho expressed to the presi
dent his belief that tho Inquiry, onco
begun, would extend to tho operations
of tho Standard Oil company In tho
Beaumont field of Texas and perhaps
to other fields.
Secretary Hitchcock gave out a
statement nrralgnlng as a "gigantic
monopoly" the present lease by the
Indian Territory Illuminating Oil
compnny of the right to prospect for
oil and gas throughout the entire
area of tho Osage Indlnn reservation
and explaining tho ngrcement reached
several days ago for cutting off more
than one-half of tho lands operative

bers of tho isthmian canal commis
sion, according to tho unanimous view
of tho houso committee on interstate

ishment. It was disclosed at the hear
ing before tho committee, at which
tho affairs of tho Panama railroad

member of the commission had ac
cepted amounts aggregating from $G00
to $1,000 n year for acting as directors
and members of tho executive board
