When the pale city people go out
in the summer sun of the seashore
or the mountains the sun attacks
them fiercely, first lecklening their
skin, then swelling, blistering and
scorching it. If they kept in the
sun enough and if no miracle oc
curred the light would kill them
finally, burning off the skin first
and afterward attacking the raw

Let a pale person unused to the
sun, stain one side of his face yel
low, and leaving the other side of
his face untouched, go out the
bright summer sun for a couple of
hours. The one side of his face is
no tougher, no more hardened than
the other, yet the unstained side
will be inflamed, blistered, while
the tan-colored one will be quite
cool and unhurt.

Do Animals Reason!
When a bird selects a site for its
nest, it seems, on first view, as if it
must actually think, reflect, com
pare, as you and I do when we
decide where to place our house. I
saw a little chipping sparrow trying
to decide between two raspbeiry
bushes. She kept going from one
to the other, peering, inspecting,
and apparently weighing the ad
vantages of each. I saw a robin in
the woodbine on the side of the
house trying to decide which parti
cular place was the best site for her
nest. She hopped to this tangle of
shoots and sat down; then to that;
she turned around; she readjusted
herself, she looked about, she
worked her feet beneath her, she
was slow in making up her mind.
Did she make up her mind? Did
she think, compare, weigh? I do
not believe it. When she found the
right conditions, she no doubt felt
a pleasure and satisfaction, and
that settled the question. An in
ward, instinctive want was met and
satisfied by an outward material
condition. In the same way the
hermit crab goes from shell to shell
upon the beach, seeking one to its
likinp. Sometimes two crabs fall
to fighting over a shell that each
wants. Can we believe that the
hermit crab thinks and reasons?
It selects the suitable shell instinc
tively, and not by an individual act
of judgment. Instinct is not always
inerrant, though it makes fewer
mistakes than reason does. The
red squirrel usually knows how to
come at the meat in the butternut
with the least gnawing, but now
and then he makes a mistake and
strikes the edge of the kernel in
stead of the flat side. The cliff
swallow will stick its mud nest
under the eaves of a barn where
the boards are planed so smooth
that the nest sooner or later is
bound to fall. It seems to have no
judgment in the matter. Its an

SmoMiiK Tells Character.
A Mexican contemporary gives
the following rules for judging
character by the manner in which
cigarettes arc smoked.
He who smokes his cigarette
down to the bitter end is either a
miser or an egotist. Out of each
ten, nine are misers.
lie who smokes fast without
ever taking the cigarette from his
mouth is hot-tempered, jealous, of
strong character and quarrelsome.
Those who knock the off ashes
at short intervals have something
on their mind or are worrying over
their bad luck.
Those who play with their cigar
ettes until they burn their fingers
or their lips are either poets or
newspaper men. Out of every ten
eight arc newspaper men and two
Those who carry their cigarettes
delicately between the index and
middle finger arc first-class liars,
and the truth is not in them.
Those who puff out the smoke
in big clouds enjoy good health.
Those who blow it out in thin,
little streams arc invalids or lazv.
Those who take great pains to
prevent the ashes dropping from
the cigarette arc foolish and weak
minded. Those who smoke in front of
the ladies have never read a work
on good manners.
The ladies who smoke believe in
exercising the rights of men, and
those who do not smoke at all have
the best sense and health of men.
The life of an eyelash is from too
to 150 days. They grow very
slowly, but finger nails grow quite
rapidly in comparison. If a person
could live without breaking or cut
ting his nails for a lifetime they
would attain the length of seventy
An Antiseptic Liniment.
For wounds, bruises, burns and
like injuries there is nothing better
than Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It
acts as an antiseptic, forming a thin
imperceptible film over the injured
parts, which excludes the air and
causes the injury to heal without
matter being formed, and in much
less time than by the usual treat
ment. In cases of burns it allays
the pain almost instantly. Sold by
