KANGAROO A NATURAL BOXER
Youngsters Are Taught by Their Par
ents and Acquire a Really High
Degree of Efficiency.
Kangaroos are nutural boxers. The
younger kangaroo Is taught to de
fend himself in this way as soon us
lie is old enough to hop about. Nat
uralists who liave watched the ani
mals in their nutive surroundings say
it is very funny to see the mother
giving the youngster his first boxing
lessons. Afterward the father takes
up the teaching, and with much gentle
ness and patience trains him to box.
When kangaroos box they buck off
and rush in and prance about very
skillfully. Each one watches for an
opportunity to strike, and at the same
time tries to prevent the other
fioiu striking. They cleverly try to
move about so as to get the enemy
below them on the slope of hill.
The resounding blows they give with
their hind feet can be heard far away.
The kangaroo lights like a gentle
man. He is a good sportsman, even
when he is fighting with his enemy.
The animals strike with the flat of the
foot, and never use against each
other their terrible ripping claws.

Grownups Played With Dolls.
It is told how sailors of the Span
ish armada carried with them dolls
as mascots and actually to play with.
Cortez, the conqueror of Mexico, en
tering the court of the king, Monte
zuma, on the evening of November 8,
1519, found the whole court seated on
the floor playing with dolls! But for
this, history might have been different.
Later, when Cortez sent an expedi
tion northward into what 4s now
Texas, lie found a curious worship of
dolls among the Hopl Indians, the
dolls being given to the children for
toys after the ceremoniesa custom
which persists among these people to
this day.Leslie's "Weekly.

MAY IMPORT ENGLISH IDEA
American Railroads Likely to Adopt
the System of Articulated Trains
in Use There.
Articulated railroad trains devised to
lessen the passenger rolling stock aat
Increase the capacity are those in
which the ends of adjoining cars are
carried on a single truck. They have
been used in England for several years.
The cars are "permanently" coupled
together. Each train, says the Scien
tific American, whether of two, or five,
or ten cars, forms a unit, the trucka
of which are so disposed that the dis
tances between their centers through
out the train are all equal. Trucks
are placed under the outer ends of
each train, the other trucks being
placed under the adjacent ends of the
car bodies forming the system. Sety
of five bodies on six trucks have been
running for many, years on the Great
Northern and there Is no construc
tional reason or any other apparent
reason why trains consisting of 10 or
15 such cars should not be built, where
the traffic calls for the use of larger
There are four principal advantages
which have been proved in the experi
ence of the company, w.ith these trains.
1, reduced first cost 2, reduced weight
8, reduced running cost 4, improved
riding of cars. The last is due to the
fact that there is no overhang of the
bodies beyond the trucks, and that the
adjacent ends of the bodies are car
ried on a common truck center.
Clever Mining Method.
The increasing depth to which it Is
necessary to go in following the vein
of kaoline, or potters' clay, mined near
the Housatonic river in Connecti
cut, some time ago caused the intro
duction of a novel method o.? min
ing. Wells from 50 to nearly 100
feet in depth are driven and two pipes,
the outer four inches and the inner
two inches in diameter, are introduced.
Water at a pressure of 40 pounds a
square inch is forced down through the
smaller pipe and rises through the
larger one, bringing with it about 5
per cent solid matter, of which 75 pi
cent is pure kaolin.

HAD THE LAUGH ON TEACHER
Instructress Called for Examples, and
Tommy Was the Boy Who
Could Furnish Them.
There has'never been any love lost
between Tommy and his teacher. Tom
my thinks the teacher is a severe and
occasionally unjust person, who has
never known what it is to be young,
while the teacher considers the little
chap botli stupid and mischievous.
"rou are- not attending to what I
say, Thomas," said the teacher one day
in the midst of an address to her
"Yes, teacher, I is," said Tommy
with much earnestness.
"You should never say *I is'" cor
rected t^e .teacher.. "I have told you
that a hundred times. You know the
correct form! There are no excep
tions to Its use. Give me two ex
amples at once!"
"Yes, ma'iim," said Tommy, meekly.

First Train Into the Ozark.
When the White River branch of the
Missouri Pacific railroad was built
down through the Ozarks, the popula
tion had never seen a railroad train.
The platform was crowded, and many
women were there with their sun
The engineer made a lot of unnec
essary snortings with his engine and
would reverse the throttle, causing the
wheels to spin around, which terrified
the people. Then he turned on the
side valves, blowing out great jets of
steam, and the people almost fell over
themselves to back out of the way.
Finally the engineer stuck his head
out of the cab window and sang out:
"If some of you ladies don't put .down
your parasols I don't believe I can
handle this critter much longer."
In three seconds every woman low
ered her parasol, and they seemed
much relieved when the engineer got
his train in motion without further
trouble and went lumbering away
down the track.Columbus (Kan.) Ad
It is usually supposed that the down
pour of rain that sometimes follows a
flash of lightning is due to the coa
lesence of fine drops on losing their
electrical charge, but a Finnish ob
server concludes that the thunder jars
the drops together. Near Vasa a heavy
thunderstorm came up from the east
late one afternoon, and, as the sun
was unclouded, a brilliant double ram
bow appeared in the east for half an
hour, arching from horizon to horizon.
At each roll of thunder the rainbows
seemed to be much shaken the wedge
being displaced and the colors blurred.
This could not be due to the lightning,
and it seemed that the same cause
might enlarge the raindrops and dis
turb the rainbow.

Each string in a violin is of a diff
erent thickness, according to the tone
and tension required. The fourth
string is covered with fine wire, either
a white metal or real silver, hence
it is often called the "silver string."
Violas, violoncellos and double-basses
have each two covered strings, the
object being to insure a sufficient
gravity of tone without having too
clumsy a material. The covered
strings on the guitar are upon a basis
of silk instead of catgut. The best
gut comes from Italy, which has been
famous for centuries for this prod
uct. Strings are carefully selected and
graded as to size so that they shall be
uniform. The larger strings for the
bigger instruments are stretched on
frames for three or four days. The
covered strings are finished on a spe
cial lathe which covers them with
floss silk or fine silver-plated copper
wire, or even silver.
