Man Is Easily the Most Bloodthirsty ol
All the Animals of the
In New Llskeard recently an owl
•rerched Itself on th*1 peak of n busi
ness block as the crimson streaks of
the dawn appeared, and wrapped In its
muff of feathers, settled Itself in com
fort to enjoy the drowsy hours of day
light. It was the picture of comfort
and pretty as a picture, cozy, warm in
the winter's cold, inoffensive and harm
But the owl was in a fool's paradise.
It had lain down with the tiger. It
was in the midst of the wolves. The
bushy little hall of feathers had fallen
unawares into the haunts of the
‘fiercest and most bloodthirsty of the
world's animals.
The sleeping bird was no sooner de
scried than the human wolves set up a
—yap. Men hurried off for their kill
ing machines, and in a few minutes a
battery of riflemen were at work
'pumping death into the spark of life
la the bundle of feathers. After awhile
one of them hit it. and then the heroes
were satisfied. They went home with
their guns, and the hoys exhibited the
Boor dead little bit of useless car

Whisky Drinker’s Experiment with
Odorous Vegetable Brought "Call”
from Employer,
Efihu Hoot, at the annual dinner of
the International Young Men's Chris
tian association in New York last
■••nth, said that eril courses were
more difficult to conceal than men
generally believed.
Take the case,” said Mr. Root, with
a snule, "of old John Itodewin. John
was a lawyer's confidential clerk, and
he had the pernicious habit of going
to a neighboring saloon every morn
ing at 11 and taking a small glass of
whisky. lie was not proud of this
habit; hence, after the whisky, he al
ways took a clove.
Hut one morning it happened that
there wpre no cloves on the bar, and
John, having considered the matter,
swallowed a small raw onion from the
free lunch tray. That would destroy
Ifre teU-taio whisky odor, no doubt, a*
well as the clove had always done,
and. so thinking, he returned to hia
'it was a double desk. At it he an*
his employer sat face to face. John,
•n his return, was soon aware that his
employer noticed something. Th<
man's nostrils quivered and he shifted
and finally, with a grimace of dia
gust, he broke out:
'Hook here, John, I've stood whisk]
and clove for 19 years, but 1 draw th<
line at whisky and onion.' ”
A Soldier Yarn.
Sir William Arbuckle is a capital
speaker, a quality which has made
him exceedhlgly popular at society
dinners. He once told an amusing
story, at an annual South African din
ner, about Sir Harry Smith, who, in
days gone by, was commandant and
governor at the Cape. The supply
from home, and necessaries of all
kinds for the soldiers, was generally
sadly deficient, and the men were oft
en i.n a pitiable plight In the way of
clothing. There was, consequently,
much discontent. So Sir Harry had
them on parade, said some pleasant
things to them, complimented them
on their soldierly appearance, told
them what splendid fellows they were,
talked of the service they had seen
together, and so forth. When he had
finished, an old sergeant stepped for
ward, saluted, and remarked: 'Thank
you Sir 'Arty, beg pardon, Sir 'Arry,
but we don't want no gammon, we
want boots.”
Festival at Crystal Palace.
For three months next year the
Crystal Palace at London, England,
will regain much or its old popularity,
for it is to be the scene of a great
‘■Festival of Empire." A great feat
ure will be a pageant of the history
of Loudon, in which 15,000 perform
ers will take part. The life of the
colonies will be presented in a series
of exhibitions, lectures, spectacular
views and pictures, and each colony
is being asked to select 200 persons
to lake part in the first series of page
ant scenes, and while they are In Lon

Will Settle Controversy.
Lake Chad, in the desert of Sahara,
will be Investigated by an expedition
which is soon to set out. Hecent ex
plorers have signally failed to agree
as to the shape and size of this sheet
of water. Apparently the lake is di
vided into two by a belt of islands
and ready swamp land, but, whereas
the maps of the French explorers
show an open channel across this
belt, a late expedition has declared
it impassable.
Above Her Business.
The tall man came into her little
blue kitchen and looked over the
shelves which were just beneath the
level of his head, hut above hers. He
ran his Huger over one shelf, then
showed it to her. It was pretty black.
"You are a nice housekeeper," he
said. s
“This kitchen wasn't made for tall
people,” she explained falterlngly. “it
was made for little ones.”
!t Is the Only Government Depart
ment That Does Not Cause Loss
to Uncle Sam.
The patent office Is the one depart
ment of the government which actual
ly yields a profit something over $80,
000 for the last fiscal year, during
which the fees amounted to $1,887,000.
The records show 62.000 applications
for mechanical appliances, on which
35,000 patents were issued.
Inasmuch as the past year shows
an increase of 4,000 applications, it is
evident that invention, instead of
growing Jess, is on the contrary,
steadily increasing, and while many
patents are secured on which the in
ventors realize little or nothing, yet
fortunes are now and will continue to
lie made from new and practical ideas.
in most cases the cause of failure
to realize expectations will he found,
says Popular Mechanics, in the nat
ural tendency of an inventor to mag
nify the possibilities and minimize the
difficulties of selling his invention.
While an occasional "find" is made
by some one working along a line iu

invention he would save money and

Sensational Issue Raised on Account
of Crowing Proclivities of
Southern Fowls.
A sectional issue has arisen in our !
town," said the New Jersey commuter.
"Hefore it is settled I am afraid the
civil war will be fought all over again.
Anyhow our southern friends are
sure to indulge in some fire eating
“A resident of our village, who un
dertook to raise chickens, received a
crate of fowls from a South Carolina
farm. When the neighbors learned
where the chickens came from they
raised a row. 'If you must keep chick
ens,' they said, ‘get northern chickens.
They don’t grow nearly so much as
southern chickens. There is something
about the climate down there that
makes a chicken crow four times as
often as a chicken brought up in any
other part of the country.
‘‘That peculiarity of Southern chick
ens was news to the .amateur poultry
man. He noticed, however, that his
chickens really did crow more persist
ently and more vigorously than any
other chickens he ever knew, and
when an experienced poulterer as
sured him that they always would, be
cause southern chickens always do, he
sold them and bought New Jersey
chickens instead. Now he is in hot
water with the southern families in
our town, and heaven only knows how
the squabble will terminate.”
Expressing Political Convictions.
Some old time politicians were not
content with wearing ribbons as an
outward and visible sign ol’ their con
victions. “In those days,” writes a
follower of l’itt who bore the soothing
name of James Bland Burges, “men
had ibe courage of their convictions,
and would have made motley their
garb to distinguish themselves from
their opponents. To belong lo the Con
stitutional club was a very simple af
iair—no balloting or fees beyond cost
of costume.
"A gentleman desirous of becoming
a member wrote bis name in the club
book and hurried to the tailor to be
measured for a dark blue frock with a
broad orange velvet cape and large
yellow buttons, round each of which
was inscribed ‘‘Constitutional Club.”
The waistcoat was of blue kerseymere
with yellow buttons, bordered all
round with orange colored silk, and
the breeches of white kerseymere
with yellow buttons. In point of taste
we certainly beat (lie blue and buff of
' our opponents.”—London Chronicle.
