who was the younger of the two.
'They look as if their heads had been
pushed down into their bodies."
"I know It," said Helen. "But see
their feet curled round the pole so
tightly. I should think it would keep
them awake, holding on so hard."
When Helen asked her father how it
was the hens did not get tired out
holding so tightly to the poles, he
said: "Why, they do not have to hold
on. When they sit down their claws
shut up by themselves, and they can't
fall off if they want to, without first
standing up."
"How unny!" exclaimed Roger.
"Next time you see a chicken walk

tice that when she steps, high, her
claws close together the same way
they do when she sits down. If you

British Admiralty Niggardly in Its Re

The lords of the British admiralty

various naval dockyards some time
ago in which a system of payment for
suggestions made by the workmen em

now practically defunct owing to the
extraordinary parsimony of the admir

The workmen manifested keenness
in applying their minds to mechanical
appliances for saving labor and cost,
but after waiting for months received
3 few paltry dollars as their rewards.
Some of the inventions are valuable
and will save the country large sums of
money, but in no case has any man

drive on the St. Croix river, and in the
vicinity of Taylor's falls a big jam oc
curred. Among the drivers were hall
a dozen Indians. They were good men
on the river and held up their end
with the white men. One day while
inspecting the jam Hanley passed the
six Indians. In a spirit of good na

"Break that jam, boys, and I'll put
your names in the paper."
"Ugh!" responded one after a pause.

Got Caught in Folding Bed
Stranger Took His Wealth.
For more than a year Henry Da
vidson has been planning a trip to
Europe, the New York correspondent
of the Cincinnati Times-Star says. In
order to aid the travel fund- by sa
ving he has occupied a cheap room
on One Hundred and Twenty-fourth
street," The principal object in the
room was a large folding bed. The
other night the bed seemed uneasy,
so; Davidson tried to rearrange it. To
do so he stood on it, near the head,
and it shut up on him like a trap.
Only his head protruded and he
screamed murder in the three lan
guages he knows. A tapping came
at the door.
"Come in!" shrieked Davidson.
"Come, help me!"
The door opened slightly and an un
pleasant face peered in. Seeing that
Davidson was fast, the owner of the
face followed it in. "Can't ye get
out?" he queried, sympathetically.
- Davidson replied, with some excess
of heat, that he wouldn't have yelled
if he had. been able to release him
self, without assistance.
"Hurt bad?" asked the stranger.
Davidson said: "No;, just bruised."
"Well," said the visitor, "you will
be hurt bad if I hear a yip out of
you.!' And he deliberately went
through Davidson's .belongings, while
the owner. In a folding bed and mental
agony, watched the procedure. The
visited rifled Davidson's trunk, took
his little bUs of jewelry and the
money he had saved for that European
trip. Now and then a groan burst
from -Davidson, always to be stifled
by a threatening motion on the part
of the thief. "Good-by." said that
person affably as he left, "I'll close
the door after me. You needn't get
When, an hour later, Davidson was
finally released by his landlady, his
first act' was to send for the kitchen
hatchet and destroy the bed.
