Thc Black Cockatoo. ,
There .is a wonderful cockatoo in
one of the islands of tae Indian ocean
aes?:New' Gomea, it is ^large as a
full grown pheasant andris o$:& jet
black' color. .'The',"bird", is> remarkable
for li? immensely strong bllij. and the
clfeVer manner iii which it is bSejd. The
bill li as hard as steel., and the upper
; part has'a deep notch.
I Now, the favorite food of this cock
atoo lu the canary nut,."but 'there"is
wonderful mgenuity required to get at
lt, for the nut is something like a Bra- '
zil nut; but it is ten times as . hard. Jn
fact, lt requires the blow bf ? heavy
hammer to crack It It ls quite smooth
and nome what triangular in ah?pe.
Nature , appears to have- given th?
possession of the wonderful bill some
intel]igence to direct its powers, for
the' cockatoo takes one of the nuts
edgewise In its bill and by a carving
motion of its sharp lower beak makes
a small notch on it This done, the
bird, takes hold of the nut with Its
claws and, biting off a piece of leaf,
retains lt In the deep notch of the up
per part o& the hill. Then the nut is
seized between the upper and lower
parts of the bill and is prevented from
slipping by the peculiar texture of the
A sharp nip or two break off a tiny
piece of the shell of the nut The
bird then seizes the nut in its claws
and pokes the long, sharp point of Its
bill into the hole and picks out the ker

His Reason Why.
Once upon a time a learned doctor
had a foolish servant who always
went with him to visit the sick. One
day he was called to the bedside of a
very ill patient and after examining
the man the doctor said that he bad
been eating oysters and that he must
stop or he would die. When they left
the house the servant asked the doctor
how he knew that the sick man had
been eating oysters.
"Because," said .the learned man, "I
naw the empty shells under the bed."
Some time after this the doctor was
very busy, and a call came for his im
mediate service. In his stress he sent
the 'servant to visit the patient, who
was very bad, just to tell him that he
would come as .soon as possible. The
servant arrived, and, as he had fre
quently heard his master do, he asked
numerous questions; then, as his eyes
wandered abont the room, he said,
"Sir, you may die, for you have eaten
"How dare you?' exclaimed the
man's wife, and in anger she drove the
fool out :>*
When the doctor called he was told
that his services were no longer re
quired and the reason given. He hur
ried home and questioned the servant.
"Why were ..you such a fool?" he
To which the servant. replied, "I
knew he bad eaten a horse, because I
saw the harness under the bed."
An interesting monument has been
erected near Greyl'riars cemetery, Ed
inburgh, by the late Baroness Burdett
Coutts, In memory, of a dog's devotion.
This dog followed its master's remains
to the cemetery In 1858; from that day
and night after night for thirteen
years lt guarded the grave and only
left it to wlslt a restaurant near at
band for Its dinner. At the Are of the
1 o'clock gun from the castle Bobby
left the grave and returned immedi
ately after a hasty meal at the restau
rant On Sundays he dined from
scraps laid in a certain place by him
OD Fridays and Saturdays?
He died In 1872. The facts are well
authenticated and were reported prom
inently In the newspapers dnrlng the
