Nels reached Genoa and lifted the case
out of the wagon, it appeared very light,
and an investigation revealed that the

was satisfied that Mike had taken the
eggs, and he made up his mind to teach
the kid a lesson when he returned home.
Mike was not there to open the gate

Out at the Joj. R. Novok place, two

poultry business on quite a large scale.
Although it is only the opening of the
season, still they have more than seven
hundred chicks, most of which were
batched in an incubator.
"Prienda at this place will be grieved
to learn of the death of Boxy Fisher,

G. W. Hagen of Topeks, KanBa, one
of the Platte river btidge gang nt this
place, had a sudden, unexpected and
perilous ride last Friday. He was stand
ing on top of the pile driver, which is 3fi
feet high besides what it sett on, when it
broke in twain and fell over in the river.
Mr. Hagen was so entangled in the guy
ropes that he could not jump clear of
the structure, but managed to free him
self so that he fell into the water clear
of it and was not injured beyond a few
bruises. The water wns about four feet
deep at the place he fell, but he was res
cued without difficulty. The accident
caused a diday in the construction of
The Crows and tha Snake.
"Strolling in Burma one day," says a
writer iu the Loudon Field, "I came to
a ditch bridge, and about ten yards off
there wns a mass of black soft mud
caused by buffaloes rolling. On the
bridge was a small brown snake about
two feet In length. This snake Is an
ordinary jungle Inhabitant and Is very
venomous. Surrounding him were a
mob of some dozen crows. Whenever
the sunke attempted to escape the
nearest bird would jump In and jerk It
back by the tail. The crows generally
kept just out of the snake's reach, but
on three separate occasions the birds
"Immediately on being bitten a crow
flew over to the wet mud nnd swal
lowed three or four mouthfuls with
out a pause. It then perched up in a
tree nnd took no further part In the
fight. The Incident ended In the snake
escaping between the planks of the
bridge. What Interests me Is why did
the stricken birds cat the mud? Was
It taken as a kind of antidote or what
was the reason?"
When a ray of sunlight falls on a
raindrop It Is refracted; then part of
the light Is reflected from the internal
surface and again refracted on leaving
the drop. The white sunlight Is not
only refracted when It enters and
leaves the drop, but dispersion also
takes place. The eye sees bright cir
cles of light for each kind of light, nnd
since sunlight Is made up of different
kinds of homogeneous light we get a
series of circular arcs showing the
spectrum colors, the red being outside
and the other colors following In the
order of descending wave length. The
whole constitutes a primary rainbow.
A secondary bow is sometimes seen
outside the first. This is formed by
the light being twice reflected Inside
the raindrops. The less refrangible
rays are on the inner side. Rainbows
due to still more internal reflections
are too feeble to be observed. It is
possible to get a white rainbow If the
sun is clouded or if there is a mixture
of raindrops of very different sizes.
Male Fashions In 1850.
Male fashions of 1S50 bad other dis
comforts besides long hair. Trousers
were tight and buttoned under the foot
with broad straps. Every man who
aspired to be well dressed wore bis
coat so high In the collar that the
back of the bat rested on It This
fashion was so prevalent that, accord
ing to Sir Algernon West, "every hat
had a crescent of cloth on the back of
the brim to prevent the rubbing of the
beaver or imitation beaver of which
the bat was made, for silk hats were
not then invented." And from the
same authority we learn that "opera
hats were unknown, and in the even
ing a folding cbaneau bras was al
ways carried under the arm. Nobody
but an apothecary or a solicitor would
have dreamed of leaving his bat in
the hall of the house where he was
calling or dining." London Chronicle.

"All right." "And I must have money
