to make a long voyage at a high rate

The Crow's Shrewdness.
Crows communicate with each other,
as their various notes show; let one
give the "look-out" call from a tree
while the others are feeding on the
ground and see the result. A crow not
only knows the language of its kindred
but it also knows all the talk of the
woods. A squirrel may rustle leaves
or give its cheep)' call and the crow
pays no attention, but let little bushy
tail begin to cough and bark at some
thing which he regards as an intru
sion, and the crow takes a position
where be can observe operations with
safety to himself. Let some black
birds have an owl at bay in a bush, in
daylight, and the crow knows their
language and is wise enough to keep
out of that scrapping match, for he
has known blackbirds to persecute a
poor crow for just taking a few eggs,
when there was no evidence that one
egg belonged to the persecutors.
The crow is a wise fellow. Ile has
lived in his native laud, where the
hand of every boy and man has been
against him. and where the so-called
game birds have been killed off. Crow
is not a marketable bird: men are said
to have eaten it, but "not to hankel
after it:" but if the bird was edible
and considered "game" he would not
be exterminated in settled places as
thc grouse has been-he knows more
than thc grouse.
Unless when driven by hunger in
winter to feed in barnyards let no mau
go forth to shoot the crow. He would
not get one in a month, unless by ac
cident. It has been shown that the
crow can count up to five when that
number of men have gone into a blind
and only four have come out. and the
bait was in range of the last man's
gun. The crow knew that there was a
man missing.-Forest and Stream.

A German professor by the name of
Leipsic has discovered in India a tree
which is a natural electric battery.
When the dark green leaves of the
tree were touched with the fingers a
tiny spark was emitted aud a distinct
electrical shock was felt. Professen'
Leipsic found that even at a distance
of 80 feet the tree had a strong in
fluence upon the ra: :netic needle.
These magnetic variations varied ac
cording to the time of day. They were
strongest at noon, but almost entirely
disappeared at midnight; The elec

HOW A PIC "BROKE" A FARMER.
Lively Fight Over a Forker lic'w?enTwa
Farmers in North Dakota.
"Up in the North Dakota town of
Grafton," said W. P. Sterling a trav
eler, at the Hoffman House, "is a rusty I
axe which represents au expenditure
of S268.35. It originally cost 50 cents
and now adorns, or did not so very
long ago, a wall 'in the office of the
justice of the peace, a memento of the
folly of some kinds of legal battles.
Underneath it is this legend: T cut
a pig and broke a farmer.'
"Two farmers lived on adjc;ning
quarter sections near the outskirts of
the town. Once they were friendly,but
the episode of the axe broke ap all
Buch relations, and one was compelled
to move away.
"Farmer 'Bill' Williams had a pig
that could generally find nothing
better to do than encroach upon the
kitchen garden of neighbor Haskin.
A post fence ran between the two
houses, and Haskin's garden was with
in a small light fence inclosure.
Haskiu protested mildly at first, but
finally relations became strained and
he warned 'Bill' one day that the next
time ho fouud the pig in his inclosure
he would confiscate it. But Williams
V.ighed at him. Two or three days
later Haskiu caught the pig in his
bean patch. He made for the animal
aud caught it by the hind legs as it
was going through a hole iu the fence.
Williams rushed out of the house aud
mauaged to catch thesquenling porker
by the forelegs. One jerk and Haskin
had it, but 'Bill' reached over tba
fence, which stood about four ^eet
high, and got another grip on the ani
mal's forelegs. Then begau the tug
of war, both" men pulling at the pig's
legs. What with 'cussing' back and
forth and the pig's squealing there
was a terrible commotion. The pis*
stretched taut was in a fair way of
being torn apart, when Haskin's son j
came ont of the house, and, seeing
'Bill's' axe on the woodpile, jumped
the fence and seized it Avith presum
ably murderous intent.
"'Cut the pig, Si!' yelled Haskin
to his sou. Si rau up with tue axe
aloft and let fly. As luck would have
it, the porker's body was directly over
a post. Well, the blade came down
and cut the pig clean in two. The
men fell over backward,but presently,
each with half a pig in one hand, waa

the f?nce . *ul makir.g threats. Si had
run iuto his tu'.Ler's house with the
axe. Then their wives came out and
got them apart.
"TH sue you!' yelled 'Bill* as a
" 'Sue away! Tarnation hookey!'
retorted Haskin. 'I'll beat you, and
you dou't git no pig and no axe.'
"Now, up in that part of Dakota
every one can tell you of the celebrated
case of Williams vs. Haskiu, although
it was tried four years ago. Williams
brought suit before a justice of tho
peace for the return of that axp.
Somehow the value of half a pig was
lost sight of. Haskin put in a bill
for damages to his garden. By the
time the suit passed the county court
and had gone against Williams the
costs and fees reached :$:2tj8.35. He
had to sell out and move away. Far

i Enormous Growth of Business in Argentina
It Is nineteen years since the first
shipload of frozen mutton was de
spatched from Melbourne. The trade
in refrigerated meat M as at liust very
slow in developing. lu 1SS3 only $11,
000 worth of sheep carcasses were sent
across the sea from Argentina. It was
not until about ten years ago that the
business began to take on very large
proportions. To-day New Zealand has
I its freezing works at Auckland, "Wel
lington and elsewhere, and every year
over $5,000,000 worth of tish, beef,
mutton and lamb are frozen solid,
sewed up in canvas, stored in the cold
chambers of shins built for tho trade
and sent to markets in Polynesia and
Europe. In 1SU0 New South Wales'
exportation of sheep carcasses was
only 200,000, but it has steadily in
creased, and in 189G it roached the
large figure of 1.200.000 carcasses, av
eraging fifty-six pounds, lt costs three
cents a pound to kill, freeze, ship and
sell the mutton in London; and among
the other places of large shipment are
Manchester. South Africa and Malta.
Queensland is the only Australian col
only that exports beef in any quantity.
New Zealand now has the most exten
sive meat-freezing works in Austral
asia. They arc at Auckland, Welling

Another side contained the postage

The Englishman's Experience.
He was an American citizen, and a
bit vainglorious, and he was talking to
an Englishman, who had a wit of his
own, despite reports to the contrary.
The recent achievements of L'ncle Sam
in various localities (?instituted thc
subject of conversation!), and the Yan
kee fairly bulged out with pride.
"I ara a free American. I am," ho
said, slapping his manly bosom, though
there was no especial occasion for such
"I fancy not." responded the English
man in a tone Hint sounded as if he
knew what he was talking about.
Thc Yankee resented it with prompt
ness and dispatch.
"I'd like to know, sir, why I am not?"
he exclaimed, with the color of wrath
rising to his face.
"You are married, aren't you?"
"And io an American?"
"Well, that settles it in my mind.

Centcmpt of Court.
Out in Indiana a gcod many years
ago a certain old woman, summoned
as n witness, came imo court wearing
a large poke bonnet such as was then
much affected by rural folks. Her an
swers to thc questions put to her be
ing rather indistinct, the court request
ed her to speak louder, though with
out much success.
"The court cannot hear a word you
say, inj' good woman." said the judge.
"Flease to take off that huge bonnet
"Sir," slio said composedly, and dis
tinctly enough this time, "the court
has a perfect right to bid a gentleman
take off his hat, but it has no right to
make a woman remove her bonnet."
.'Madam." replied the judge, "you
seem so well acquainted with the law
that I think you had better come up
and take a seat with us on the bench."
"I thank your honor kindly," she re
sponded, dropping a low courtesy to
tho court, "but there are old women
enough there already."-Creen Bag.
