HAS HAD ENOUGH OF WATER.
Pony's Experience Taught Prospector
in Yellowstone Park to Avoid
"I had a little experience with ani
mals and water myself," spoke up an
other whose attire did not speak of
the traveling man, but rather of the
"I used to be In the Yellowstone Na
tional park before there was ever a
road there or a forest guard or. sol
dier. In fact, I helped pick out the
routes by which the tenderfeet of the
present day see the wonders of nature
and occasionally the wonderful nerve
of the highwayman. Naturally the old
trails led along a different course from
the present roads, for we used to take
the shortest way across and where we
could not ride we would walk and lead
"One day I was riding between the
upper and the lower geyser basin and
my pony and I came to a creek which
looked as if it would be pleasant to
taste. I stopped the nag to taste the
water, but the pony beat me to it. He
had his muzzle burled up to his eyes
in an instant and in less than half that
time he had it back out with a roar
of pain that could be heard a mile
away. The water was boiling hot, but
the heat of the ground near the earth
kept the steam from rising. The pony
Jerked away from me and went buck
ing and bawling through the trees,
carrying my blankets and grub with
"It was two days before I found him
and caught him again. Then all of the
hair was of his muzzle from his eyes
to his nostrils. I greased bis head
with bacon fat aad made the nag as
comfortable as possible. It was neces
sary that I should ride him, for I had
aa appointment on the banks of Yel
lowstone lake with the rest of the
party, and I turned his nose gently In
"Next day we came to a stream
which came directly out of a snow
bank and the pony, depending upon
that sign of coolness, put his head
down and took another drink. The re
sult was that his mouth and nostrils
shrunk up so that he could no longer
whinny or breathe. Within two min
utes he was dead. Investigation
showed that he had drunk from an
alam spring; what we believed to be
snow was alum crystals. I stripped
the saddle frost the horse and packed
It ten miles to camp.
"From that day to. this I have never
tasted water on my occasional trips
to the Yellowstone park, and I do not
see how I can be blamed for my ac
tion either." Anaconda Standard.
The great atmospheric ocean
presses around us everywhere, but at
the bottom the currents are often slug
gisb, and in the area of great cities
where the life swarms In the gaseous
ocean are dense the mass of the life
luld may easily become poisoned with
gasses. Every open space In the
densely settled sections of great cities
adds to the breathing room and so tc
the general wholesomeness. Parke
and open squares are the lungs of a
big city. They are not only places
of resort that offer a gratifying change
but they actually assist the move
ment of air currents of the streets and
alleys. The multiplication of chil
dren's play grounds in large cities dur
Ing recent years has resulted in im
mensely promoting the open-air habit
of the growing generation. We are
at last getting away from the theories
handed down to us from our remote
ancestors the cave dwellers. We are
coming more and more to Imitate the
ancestry that antedated the cave men
we are learning the tonic power that
comes from living in the open air. In
the" summer time especially we need
plenty of breathing space and we
should not be too squeamish about let
ting the sunshine directly down on us

WIDOW" WHILE YET A CHILD
Marriage Customs of China That
teem Peculiar to the Mfnde
' Mrs. Miriam Sinclair Headland, Jf.
D., writing in the Circle Magazine of
her experience as a physician among
the court ladies of China, relates this
interesting incident: s
"How many sisters are there in
your family eight, are there not?"
Mrs. Headland once asked am older
daughter of the household.
"Yes. You know, of 'course, that
No. 5 was engaged when a child of
six to the son of Li Hung Chang."
- "No; I was not aware of the fact;
and were they married?"
"No, they were never married. The
young man died before they were old
enough to wed. When word of his
death was brought to her, child that
she was, she went to her mother and
told her she must never engage her
to anyone else, as she meant to live
and die the widow of this boy."
"And did she go to Li Hung Chang's
"No, the old viceroy wanted to take
her to his home, build a suite of
rooms for her and treat her as his
daughter-in-law, but our parents ob
jected because she was so young. The
viceroy loved her very much, and his
eyes often filled with tears as he
spoke of her and the son who had'
passed away. When the viceroy died
she wanted to go and kow-tow at his
funeral, and all his family except the
eldest son were anxious to have her
do so, and thus be recognized as one
of the family. But his son objected,
and though Lady Li knocked her head
on the coffin until It bled he would not
yield, lest she might want her por
tion." "And what has become of your sis
ter?" "She withdrew to a small court,
where she has lived with her womea
"And what does she do?" I asked.
"How does she employ herself?"
"Studying, reading, painting and.
embroidery. When young Li refused
to allow her to attend his father's
funeral her sense of self-respect was
outraged and she cut off her hair and
threatened to commit suicide. She
often fasts for a week and has tried

that she might kill herself.
"Yes, we have constant apprehen

would only emphasize her virtue." .
Aesop Up to Date.
A hare one day ridiculed the short
feet and slow pace of the tortoise
The latter, laughing, said: "Though
you may be swift as the wind. I will
beat you In a race." The hare, seeing
that the assertion of the tortoise
seemed preposterous on the face of it,
did some lightning thinking. He then
assented to the proposal. They agreed
that the bare should choose the
course and fix the goal. On the day
appointed for the race they started off
together. The tortoise never for a
moment stopped, but went on with a
slow but steady pace straight to the
end of the course. The hare, how
ever, as soon as he had bounded' out
of sight of the starter, hid in a clump
of bushes and took a nap. Waking up
In time to make a grandstand finish,
he dashed for the goal, arriving there
just one second after the tortoise. "I
was out of condition," he panted. But
that night, when his agents -returned
to him with the winnings of the bets
he had made on the tortoise, he had
a quiet chuckle all by himself.
Moral The race is not always to
the swift, but the coin always Is.
Mexico as a Cattle Country.
"Mexico is fast becoming the great
cattle country of the American conti
nent, and northern Mexico is the ideal
cattle country of Mexico," said G. B.
McDermott of Nacozari, who was in
Houston recently. "As the fanners
and sheepmen have forced the cattle
men of the great southwest of the
United States to move their ranges,
they are naturally seeking the most
favorable localities, and northern
Mexico seems to appeal more forcibly
to them than any other section. Cattle
are being moved rapidly Into Mexico
from the United States, and the cattle
men of Mexico are now paying more
attention to their herds than formerly
with the result that an excellent
quality of beef is being built up tn the
republic." Houston Post
The Marriage Tie in Russia.
In these days of frequent divorce
the Russian peasants are an example
for the most nobly born of any land
as marriage with them is considered
dissoluble only by death. "The wife
is not a shoe that can be cast aside
at will." and "The knot Is tied; it will
not come undone for 100 years." arc
two well known proverbs there that
show in their homely wording the rev
erence in which the married state U
held. Nor Is intermarrying permitted
until after the fourth degree of kin
ship is reached; the deceased wife's
sister is also barred out When a sep
aration occurs the husband takes the
boys and the wife the girls.

EMOTIONS AMONG THE BIRDS.

The raising or depressing of the
bird's feathers, the poise of her body,
the opening or closing .of her bill, and

WHISTLE HEARD MANY MILES
Notes of Steamboat Siren Carry Far,
Especially on Still Night in
Have you ever wondered what
sounds travel the farthest? If you live
in a great city you are constantly en
veloped in such a multitude of noises
that It is very seldom that any partic
ular one attracts the attention unless
it be unusually sharp or strident, and
altthough piercing, such a sound la
not likely to carry any great distance.
The higher notes are exceedingly pen

questionably more startling .than the
lower ones, but the tatter are much
The ability of a sound to carry de
pends upon its vibrations, and any one
who has listened to the deep notes of
a pipe organ in a' church will admit
that ne could almost feel the air vi
brate. But probably a steamboat
whistle, such as are common on the
Ohio' and Mississippi packets, can be
heard as far as any sound that may
ordinarily be met with. The deep
resonance of its toaes, floating stead
ily but Into the air, seem to stretch
away Indefinitely into space, especial
ly in the stillness of a 'night in the
country. It is a sound that cannot be
mistaken for any other, and when
once its acquantance has been made

Learned How to Pack Trunk.
"I have the, man who came for my
trunk to thank' for one thing," said a
woman; "hereafter! think closing my
trunk will have less terror for me. You
see, I always seem to have it sc
crowded that it requires, the combined
weight of several members of the
household to close that, cover. Well,
the other day, when it was time tc
take my trunk to the station, there we
were', three of us, trying to get that
trunk closed aad locked. Finally, in
sheer despair, I looked at the man
who was patiently waiting, and in a
most appealing way, invited him to sit
down upon that trunk to see if
he could close it Did he do as I sug
gested? No something, better. He
calmly lifted up the top' of the trunk,
took out the top tray and fitted it in
the top of the cover; jresto, that
cover, with the top tray inside, went
down as nicely as could 'be. I am not
trying to explain' why it did, but 1
know that it did. And. like a mission
ary, I am passing the idea along."
Trees That Whistle and Weep.
' . In Nubia there is a curiosity in tree
life. It Is called the Sofar or Whis
tling tree. When the soft winds blow
through its branches it gives forth de
lightful melodies after the manner of
the old-time Aeolian harp. For hours
at a time this strange, weird muslf
stretches out across the wilderness,
thrilling, the listener with a mad
fantasy of pleasure. The Nubians
claim that it is the spirits of the dead
singing to those who are about to join
them. Scientists say that the music
is caused by millions of small holes
bored by an Insect in the spines of the
leaves. Another tree that interests
botanists is the Weeping tree of the
Canary islands. This tree, during the
driest weather, will rain down regular-
showers from its leaves. The natives
during a drought gather under the
branches and fill their buckets. The
water is clear and pure.

HORSE PARTIAL TO PEACHES
New York .Animal Passed Up Real
Fruit in Favor of Millinery
That horses prefer peaches to
oranges was demonstrated yesterday,
says the New York Sun. Two women
just through shopping emerged from
a store and stopped to talk near the
curb. A few feet away was a push
cart loaded with oranges. Two yards
away stood a delivery wagon.
One of the women wore a peach
basket hat set off with several bunch
es of flowers and two artificial peach
es. The conversation between the
two women evidently was of great In
terest to both, as neither noticed the
horse edge himself gradually to where
they were standing until he almost
touched the tail end of the push cart
with the oranges.
Then the conversation was brought
to an abrupt end by the woman with
the peach basket feeling a tug at he
hat which caused her to turn around
to find the cause. With a shriek she
made a hasty retreat for the store,
leaving the horse in possession of the
two peaches which he had nibbled at
in preference to the oranges on the

and transparency (preventing aay of
the printed part of the note being
washed out by turpentine, or removed
by the knife without making a bole) ;

Perhaps the most remarkable vol
canic eruption known was that which
took place in August 1883, at th Is
land of Krakatoa, in the Straits of
Sunda. Streams of volcanic dust were
thrown 17 miles high, and more than
a cubic mile of material was expelled
from the volcanic crater. The all
waves started by the eruption trav
eled around the earth seven times.
The noise was heard at Mascasa. 96s
miles away; at Borneo, 1,116 miles dis
tant; In West Australia, 1,700 miles
away, and even at Rodaguez, distant
more than 2,900 miles. The dust and
powdered pumice thrown out of the
crater made the entire circuit of the
earth before settling down, and waa
the cause of the strange sunsets that
were observed for many months.
