Show a Devotion Rarely 3Iet Among
More Favored Creatures.
Very funny it is, from the human
point of view, to witness the love-making
of a couple of owls on a moonlight
night, as they sit togather on the cop
ing of an old wall, or on the horizontal
limb of some giant of the forest. Perch
ed on the same bough, or the same wall
or ruin, the lady owl. though usually
much bigger and stronger than her
mate looks the picture of demure coy
ness, if a little excited inwardly, like
a girl at her first ball.
But the male owl, says the Pall Mall
Magazine, is very much in earnest; for
a moment or two he remains quite
still, then he puffs out all his feathers,
bows, and utters a softened scream,
followed by a modified hiss that is full
of tender meaning, and then he nudges
her with his wing; she opens her big
eyes very wide, and gives him a side
long glance that may be a "hint, for,
horrible to relate, from the depths of
his interior he instantly brings up a
half-digested mouse; and, although she
is full of similar rodents and stag
beetles as she can comfortably hold,
she opens her mouth and accepts the
fragrant gift wiich a murmur of satis
faction that speaks volumes of love
and thanks. Then, when the dainty
morsel has been disposed of, they ca
ress each other tenderly for a moment
or two, and then sit closely pressed to
each other's side while the process of
assimilation is perfected, after which
they simultaneously flit away into the
moonlight on noiseless wing in search
of further prey.
Not only do the owls guard each
other with a devotion thalt is rarely met
with among more favored creatures,
they positively idolize their ill-favored
offspring, for whose sake they willing-,
ly risk not only liberty, but life. A
young owl is not an attradtive looking
object from our point of view, but in
its father's and mother's eyes it is per
fection, and the way they wait on it,
cuddle and caress it. feed it and keep
it clean, must be seen to be believed.
Among the Pigmies.
Though it was a dangerous under-'
taking for the African explorers' to
travel through the hind of the pigmies,
there must have been a huge interest
in observing the ways of these little
imps, who were generally struck spell
hound at the sight of the white men.
Mr. Lloyd, writing in Chambers's
Journal, says he was twenty days
walking through the great forest in
habited by the pigmies, a forets so
dark that in many places It w,as im
possible to read, even at noonday.
The pigmies were fairly intelligent,
and peacefully disposed, although their
arrows were tipped with deadly poi
son. They had a frightened appear
ance, and covered their faces. TTke shy
children, when spoken to. The forest
was alive with elephants, leopards,
wild pigs, buffaloes, and antelopes.
After leaving the forest Mr. Lloyd
came to one place Where he .took the
opportunity of screwing together the
bicycle which he had brought with
him. A spin on the machine brought
out thousands of men. women, and
children from their villages, and they
danced and yelled with delight at see
ing, as they expressed it, a European
riding a snake..
AVhlttlor Color Blind.
"Mr. Whittie.r greatly surprised me
by confessing that he. was quite color
blind," says the Bookman. "He ex
emplified his condition by saying that
if I came to Aniesbury I should be
scandalized by one of his carpets. It
appeared that he was never permitted
by the guardian goddess of his hearth
to go: 'shopping' for- himself, but tlrat
once, being in Boston, and needing a
carpet, he had ventured to go to a store i
and buy what. he had thought to be a
very nice, quiet article, precisely suited
to. adorn a Quaker home. When it ar
rived at Ameshury there was a univer
sal shout of horror, for what had .
struck Mr. Whit tier as a particularly
soft comb.inat.ion of browns and grays

of the crudest cabba.ee green. When
he had told me this, it was then easy
to observe that the fulness and bril
liancy of his wonderful eyes had some
thing which was not entirely normal

Hugh Montgomery, whose father
owns a large ranch in the fertile San
Joaquin Valley. California, went to
San Francisco and paid a brief visit
at the house of a clerical uncle..
This divine, who is one of the best
and most hospitable of men, follows
the custom ,of having prayers before
breakfast. In connection with this
service each member of the family
circle is expected to recite .a verse of
Scripture. Hugh, who has habitually
a very healthy appetite, became decid
edly sharp set before the amen was
said. When his turn came to recite a
verse he significantly repeated the fa
"How many hired servants -of my
father's have bread, enough and to
spare, while I perish of hunger?"
The reverend uncle listened with
twinkling eyes and there was a speedy
adjournment to a .well-spread table.
Birds and Bills.
"There is something wrong with this
bill," said the young married man to '
the milliner who has imported Par
isian prices as well as styles.
"It is correct in. every item," after
looking it pver.
"Eight dollars for that bird, no big
ger than my fist?"
"Yes, sir, and cheap at that."

yesterday and I bought a ten pound

HE KNEW THE ROPES
A Lawyer That Was. Not Hunting
Litigation Over Land.
It's the canny old bird that cannot
be caught with the bird lime of litiga
tion. You've probably heard of Lawyer
Hackett of Somerset. A little while'
ago he purchased some land over
which there had been a lawsuit for
years, until the parties had spent half
a dozen times what the land was worth.
Hackett knew all about it. Some of
the people wondered why he wanted to
get hold of property with such an incu
bus of uncertainty on it. Others
thought that perhaps he wanted some
legal knitting work and would pitch in
redhot to fight that line fence question
on his own hook.
That's what the owner of the adjoin
ing land thought, says the Baltimore
Herald. So he braced himself for
trouble when he saw Hackett coming
across the fields one day.
Said Hackett: "Where's your claim
here, anyway, as to this fence?"
"I insist," replied the neighbor, "that
your fence is over my land two feet
at one end and one foot at least at fehe
"Well," replied Hackett, "you so
ahead" just as quick as you can and set
your fence over. At the end where you
say that I encroach on you two feet,
set the fence onto my land four feet
At the other end push it onto my land
"But," persisted the neighbor, "that's
twice wnat I claim."
"I don't care about that," said Hack
ett." '"There's been fight enough over
this, land. I want you to take enough
so you are perfectly satisfied you llave
got your rights, and then we can get
along all pleasantly. Go ahead and
The man paused, abashed. He had
been ready to commence the old strug
gle tooth and nail. But this move of.
the new neighbor stunned him. Yet
he wasn't to be outdone in generosity.
He looked at Hackett
"Squire," said he, "that fence ain't
going to be moved an inch. I don't
want the blamed old land. There
warn't nothing to the fight but the
principle of the thing."
At Westtown, Chester County, Pa.,
the Friends' big school celebrated its
one hundredth anniversary recently.
They have at the school a kind of
diary, or log, which has been kept up
continuously for 100 years, and in
which the state of the weather every
day during all that time has been noted
down. The log was consulted for an
auspicious date in the matter of weath
er for the anniversary, and it showed
that every June 10 -has been clear since
the beginning of the school's career.
Then some said: "Since it hasn't
rained for 100 years on June 10 wehad
better avoid that date, for it will be
sure to rain then this year." But oth
ers said that reason and philosophy in
dicated June 10 to be a day devoted,
from some unknown atmospheric caus
es, to sunshine and blue skies. The lat
ter set of people carried the day, and
the school celebrated its anniversary
on June 10. But it rained so hard that
the guests had to sit around in tenta.
She Would Have Stopped It.
Some time ago the wife of an old
inhabitant of ra Durham, England, vil
lage died, leaving a grown-up family
behind her. The father remained a
widower about eighteen months; then
he entered the matrimonial state again.
The youngest daughter, aged, about
twenty, on the day of the wedding,
went to the village butcher's.
After the usual courtesies, the
butcher asked her: "Is it true yor
fether got married agyen?"
"Aye, it's ower true!',' said the girl.
"Didn't ye want him te get married
"No; we.wor aall agyen it, but aad
fyul wad hev his aan way. But Aa

She Might Relent.

But some day you'll regret; '"'"

And be a magnate yet..

You don't intend to fret;

But still, I wish you'd let me know
