PARROT FISH ODD CREATURE

If soie one asked you, "What is
that Which has a beak like that of a
parrot and cheek pouches like those
of a monkey, lives in the sea and
chews the cud like a cow?" you might
imagine it was some kind of catch rid
dle. Yet there Is a creature which an
swers this description perfectly. It Is
called the parrot fish.
The upper and lower jaws have be
come hardened into a sharp, curved
beak, which is just the tool required
for lopping off lumps of tough weed.
Each piece snipped off by the beak is
passed into one of the two curious
pouches which adorn the cheeks, and
there it remains until the parrot fish
feels that he has collected enough to
make a good meal.
He then lies on the bottom and chews
the cud by means of the splendid set
of teeth which nature has placed, not
in his mouth, but in his throat.-Ex

of the old-time benches of squires and
landowners, whose right to be made
justices of the peace was almost re

tution by men of Integrity in every
walk of life, and now by women, has
wrought a change in rural police court
justice which the country mind under

a country bench recently, a prominent
landowner, his agent, one of his la

A Kind WIsh.
When Jean went to her little neigh
bors to visit she often talked to the
grandmother of the house. "I have
a grandmother, too," she would say.
"but she's in heaven."
And she and the grandmother of
the houee were good friends until one
day the grandmother was erocs. She
scolded the tw. little girle for leav
lag the screen door open, for walk
ing in a flower bed and dropping
crumbs on the floor.
The two -youngsters sought refuge
en the porch. Grandmother started
to follow them there a little later, to
tyto make up. She realised the
Ity of doing so, for when she
ched the door she heard Jean say:
uth, I wish your grandmother was
tin' my grandmother today."
