The oddest character, as well os tha
oildest figure, in the bird world, la tha
penguin, whose principal home happens,
also, to be the strangest land on the
earth the Antarctic continent. Some new
facts about, tills queer bird have just
been mad known by Dr. Murray Levick,
the aoologlet of Captain Scott's tragic
expedition to the South Pole.
Penguins have always awukene.l both
surprise and amusement In the minds of
Antarctic explorers, because of their
astonishing resemblance, when sren at
m little distance, to a ecn-pany of short
legged men, attired in long, black, swallow-tail
coats and snowy-white waist
coats, and strutting about or standing
in absurdly dignified attitudes, as if they
were guests at a formal reception. They
array themselves in long lones on the
beaches or rocks, march with a waddling
gait, and never lose their dignity.
It is no wonder that acme of the early
navigators In the South Seas thought, at
first glance, that they had discovered
a new race of savages, for penguins are
found on the southern coasts of .South

Ir'uego, and on the scattered islands of

There was the rattle of a donkey en

yacht Hilarity. The anchor waa coming

Other observers hava often remarked
the ceremonious movements of the
penguins, which gravely bow to one an
other and go through elaborate evolu
tions, aa regular and measured aa the
steps of a stately dance. Thla they do

looker. Remuikublo as fet the outward resem
blance of the penguin to a human being,
at least in outline, its manners and do
mestic habits bear, externally, a no lesn
striking likeness of the same nature. Ac
cording to Dr. Levlck, the penguin's "pro
posal of marriage" is an affair at least
as Ingenious and suggestive as what Is
found among some savages of our race.
"It centers around the building of the
nest, for when ho (the penguin) bus seen

pebble. If she uccepts it, all is well, and
he then proceeds to bring the stones to
build the neat."
But. like a true aavage, the male pen

the accumulation of the materials, which
he heaps up on the snow at the selected
spot, leaving the work of putting them
