The Song of the Locusts.
Children listen to the son?,

Hear the song the locusts sing;
Hear the story that they bring
From the far Egyptian Nile
Close your eyes and hear the while:
••Pha-a-a-ro, Pha-a-a-ro, Pha-ra-oh,
Let the Hebrew children go!”
Now it seems the burdened cry.
Prayer and moan and anguished sigh,
Of the Israelitish band,
Toiln r in that heathen land
Now it seems the pleading's vain
For their sons—doomed to be slain:
‘•Pha-a-a-ro, Pha-a-a-ro. Pha-ra-oh,
Let the Hebrew children go!”
Now we hear the tramp and shout
As Mo-cs leads his people out:
Hear the sei. divided, roar
Till all God's hosts are safe on shore:
Hear the son? of prayer and praise
Which Israel s grateful leaders raise.

Connecticut is a fine state for frogs.
There at old Windham was fought
the famous “Battle of the Frogs.”
It was during the French and In
dian war in 1758. Windham was then
the most important frontier town of
Eastern Connecticut. Colonel Dyer,
a prominent citizen, was raising an
army to oppose the Indians at Crown
Point. The town was alive with ex
citement. One very dark night the
people were awakened by strange
sounds, and at once thought the In
dians were upon them. Seizing guns,
swords and axes, the men rushed out
to meet the enemy. But no enemy
was to be seen. Still they felt a
force of Francli and Indians must be
at hand, for hoarse voices could be
heard calling for Windham's promin
ent military leaders.
“Colonel Dyer and Elderkin, too!”
“Colonel Dyer and Elderkin, too!”
The town was up all night. When
day broke the mystery was accident
ally solved. A mile away from the
village lay a big mai-shy pond inhab
ited by myriads of frogs. A drought
had nearly dried up the water, reduc
ing it to a tiny streamlet, and for this
scanty supply the poor thirsty crea
tures had fought each other, until
thousands lay dead on either side of
This battle made Windham famous.
For years the inhabitants felt badly
teased and insulted by its mention.
Now, however, the story is no longer
a joke but a prized tradition.
Snakes are as fond of frogs as the
traditional Frenchman who esteemed
them a delicacy. A frog has often
been found swallowed whole and
alive in a slaughtered snake. One
snake known to a friend of the chron
icler fared badly enough by his greed
for his favorite dainty. He had swal
lowed one frog and then had started
to crawl through a crevice in a stone
walk Before he had dragged through
bis entire length he espied another
plump little fellow and took him in,
whereupon lie found himself securely
fastened down under the stones, una
ble to move either way-, and was dis
patched by the spectator.
Naturalists consider the frog a very
interesting fellow and other observ
ant people have learned curious facts
concerning these amphibious crea
A gentleman living in the southern
part of France had a very large frog
pond on his grounds and was fond of
study-ing the habits of its inhabitants.
One day he saw a great change in the
appearance of a certain frog of which
he had made a pet. It looked as if it
had in some way acquired a pair of
the puffed breeches which gentlemen
used to wear in the courts of James
the First of England and Louis the
Thirteenth of France. This change
made him curious to know what it
meant and all the more so when he
found that almost every day more
and more of the frogs were wearing
tlie same queer looking tilings.
By watching carefully the gentle
man soou found the cause of the
strange, new article of frog dress.
The mother frog, it seems, considers
that her duty is discharged when she
has laid her eggs. These all adhere
together, forming a long chain of
many links. As soon as she has. de
posited these on the bank of the- pond
she hops away, seeming to forget all
about them, and they would, never
hatch out if the father frog did. not.
come to the rescue. With no: little
difficulty he winds these chains of
neglected eggs around his own thighs
—thus producing the appearance of
the puffed breeches.
He then proceeds to hidie himself
among the marshy grasses around the
pond until the eggs are ready to hatch
out Then he goes into- the water.
In a little while the shells burst, let
ting out the young tadpoles, which
immediately swim awav without so
much as a “thank you."
Another very motherly father of
the frog family is found in South
America, in Chili. He is provided
with a large sac, or pouch, which ex
tends over the whole surface of his
belly, from the mouth downwards.
There is no external opening into this
sac, and when Mr. Darwin first saw a
male frog apparently swallowing the
eggs he thought he was the worst
kind of a fellow to be eating his own
But this thought was a great in
justice. On opening the frog’s mouth
Mr Darwin discovered that on each
side of the tonguo was an aperture
down which the eggs rolled into the
sac, which soon became distended
As the eggs hatch out in this sac,
the young frogs find their way up
into their careful father’s mouth, and
thence out and away into the pond
which is to them the wide world.—
Getting liea'lv to Fly.
When a cocoon makes its way out of
its house, where it snugly lived all
winter, it is no longer a cocoon, but a
butterfly; yet its wings are crumpled
and limp as the petals of a rosebud,
and for all the good it gets from them
it might as well still be a worm.
The first thing the new-born crea
ture does is to get those wings into
The process begins by a little heav
ing motion of the muscles at the
joints of the wings, just as though it
were shrugging its shoulders at the
world into which it has stepped. This
shrug is repeateif again and again,
sometimes the exercise seems to quite
exhaust it, and then it rests quietly,
hanging motionless to the twig, or
whatever it has fastened its tiny claws
upon, for several minutes, when the
shrugging process is renewed.
Little by little the wings lose their
crumpled appearance, strength is in
fused into the veins which mark them
as do the veins in a lcaf.gradually the
gauzy things unfold and expand un
til they lift, light and airy and strong.
Sometimes a whole day is spent thus
before the first attempt is made at
flying1. " hat a lesson is there for us,
creatures of haste and impatience.—
■‘French as She Is Spoke."
In one of his entertainments Mr.
George Grossmith extracts consider
able fun from “French as she is
spoke” by the schoolboy. In a clever
skit on the French play that forms
part of the inevitable prize day pro
gram; all the dialogue is of the
conventional “First French Course”
order, viz., “Have you seen the garden
of my wife’s uncle?” “No; but I have
found the pencil of my father’s sister.”
I was reminded of this the other
day when calling on a friend whose
three small nieees had just arrived
from South America. The children’s
native tongue was Spanish, but evi
dently a “First English Course” had
been used to prepare them for their
visit to this country, and their quaint
high-flown phrases were a constant
source of mirth to the household.
They invariably prefaced each sen
tence with “It is that.”
“Juanita, why haven't you brushed
your hair?” said my friend to the
dark-eyed eldest girl, of about six.
“It is that I failed to discover my
brush,” was the stately reply. At
that moment the baby upstairs set up
a piercing yell, whereupon the second
child, with hand upraised, remarked,
with infinite solemnity, “Hark! the
Easier Thun Arithmetic,
It is easier to remember tilings us
ually if you know what they mean.
A little boy could never remember
even about how long a cubit is until
his father told him the word was cu
bitus in Latin which means an elbow,
and that the measure called cubit
was tiie distance from a man's elbow
to the end of his middle finger:
“And how much is a fathom,” asked
tiie little boy.
“Oil, fathom comes from the two
words, ‘fat’ which means in the Aryan
language to extend, and ‘hom’ a man.
A fathom is the length of a man ex
tended; that is, when the arms are
stretehed out on each side from the
shoulders, from tip to tip of his Un
“The foot is an English word, and
means just the length of the foot of a
full grown man.”
