Washington, March 15.— Since the 2-cents-a
mile railroad faro agitation has been in the fore
ground the question of paying for the transportation
of the troops of the national guard over bond-aided

Orchard, of his own volition and against the
urgent pleadings of his attorney and others, re
fused, when arraigned on March 10. to let his pre
vious pica of "not guilty" stand. He also refused
to plead to a lesser degree of murder than first d -

understood fully what must be the consequences."
Among some expressions are made that Immunity
of some sort lias been promised to Orchard. This
is denied by those in authority and by Orchard.
Those who have been in close communication v.-it.i
Orchard, prison officers and spiritual advisers, all
express the opinion that should an effort be made
to commute his sentence or pardon him. Orchard

THE BLOODTHIRSTY KEA.
New Zealand's kea. or mountain parrot, is a mur
derous bird that- kills sheep and eats them. A
writer describes its methods: "The reason why bo
few people have ever seen the kea at work seems
to be due to the fact that the killing Is mostly done
at evening or early morning, at places which men
seldom reach until long after the bird hns finished
its ■ • idly work. Among my correspondent mor*
than thirty nun have actually seen the kea killing
the sheep. The birds' mode of procedure seems an
follows: They may attack in one or twos or In
numbers, but usually one or two birds do the kill
ing and the others share in the spoil.
"The kea always scorns to choose the pick of the
Bock. The bird settles on the ground near its
quarry, and after hopping around 'or some time it
leaps on Its prey, usually on the rump. The move
ment of the cheep may cause it to fall off. but it
persists until it has Brady perched itself on the
sheep's back. Then the kea begins its operations
by tearing but the wool with Its powerful beak, and
at last gets its do::!: into the flesh.
"The sheep; which for some time baa been moving
unesally about, Rives a jump as the beak pierces
the Scan, and then begins to run wildly about in
vain efforts to rid Itself of its tormentor. ■/hen,
however, the sheep finds it cannot dislodge it» ene

state's Indian fund, with the re3u'.t that the In

Tho Indian fund of the State of Maine had its
origin indirectly in an act of the Legislature of
Massachusetts in the time between the Declaration
of Independence and the adoption of the Constitu

of making treaties.

the district of Maine fought with the colonists for
freedom. After tlie establishment of peace the
Massacnusetta Legislature made a treaty with the
Indians setting aside several townships for their

ants forever that th" state would alwtM stand be
tween them and want. When ?.!:t ; j «<ep:*rate<l
