The stent of heather In the month of May
Brings misty vision of the surrey hills.
While roses in a bowl not far way
Ullnd with the memory of a month that thrill.
The pungent odor of the new mown hay
Brings drift smoke from the meadows of the years.
While Incense cells the chanting of a lay
A sacrifice and eyes that smart with tears.
The Pamir, or Marco Polo's Argali, an Aslutio "Wild Sheep
By ANN USLE.
He who walks blindly forward, eyes downcast,
Thoughts tar away from any objects passed,
Consumed with self, will some day wake to find
His heart a atone, his eyes gone truly blind.
He who looks upward when the skies are gray
Will glimpse the sunset at the end of day,
, And all his mean tasks wear a fairer guise;
Seen through the ttar dust shining on his eyed.
He who is yoked beneath a heavy load,
And must needs keep his eyes upon the road,
May feel the thrill of life about him sti!.
For wild flowers bloom around his casement sill.

Try to become a good comrade to your

' A fascinating and very instructive book
mtght be written about horns. More dis
tinctively than any other part of the ani
mal organism, horns - are evidently In
tended for purposes of offense snd de
fense. They ere above all, nature's
weapons. . They . tell the story of the
struggle for 'existence which has always
gone on since the earth began to be in
habited. Among the gigantic animals of
prehistoric times and ancient geological
ages there were some that had horns of
extraordinary magnitude and form, like
the great triceratops, or "three-horned
beasts," of western America, which wore
Ita horns on a huge body helmet. But
there are many animals today possessing
horns hardly less remarkable for size and
shape than any that the primeval world
of giants beheld.
The horn id animals are among the no
bleat in appearance, end In .spirit, that
the earth supports. They are nature's
knights, aocoladed and armed by Its own
hand, . Among the sportaman's trophies
there are none of which be Is more proud
than the weapona of soma great antlered
champion of the Cervus or the Bos, the
deer, or the ox families, for there are
none the conquest of which requires more
courage and skill.' And so we find the
walla of every hunting hall and sports

taken from the heads of stags, moose,
bucks, antelopes, buffalo, wapiti,- prong-'
horns, and other noble game animals.

perhaps the finest collection of horns
that exist anywhere are to be found In
England. Our photographs show some
that hang on the walls ef the Royal Ar
tillery mess at Woolwich. '
Two thins that especially impress the
observer in looking at these specimens of
fighting horns are the immense sise of
some of them compared with the heads
from which they spring, and the singu
lar shapes that. In' many esses, they as

curves possess some particular utility
that makes the horns more formidable

look, for instance, at the huge twisted
horne of the big markhor. or bearded

Some .of these horns are beta ween four

Antlers, strictly speakirig, are not the

similar purpose. They consist of bone,
growing from protuberances on tha skull.
A stag's antlers are renewed every year,
falling off late In the winter. Antlers
are closely associated with sexual char

male. Among deer, only ' the female of
