He "had lived on terms of amity with
the Indians, and when the whites came
fee admitted them to his acquaintance.
He thought they were his friends and
he believed that they set out wide
fields of corn for his edification and
entertainment. He accepted what he
understood to be the white man's invitation
to eat newly planted and
freshly sprouted corn. In this lie erred.
He misjudged the white man. These
early settlers found fault with the
habits of the crow, and among the
old statutes, especially those of Marykind
and Virginia, one finds offers of
bounties for the heads of crows. There
were also bounties for the scalps of
wolves, foxes and bears and the heads
In 172S the Maryland council and ,
assembly enacted that each taxable !
person in the colony should bring in i
each year three heads or scalps of |
crows, and the same of squirrels, and !
for each additional crow or squirrel-]

Wheat 15,000 Years Old.
Wheats which are known to have
been used by primitive man 10,000 to
15,000 years' ago and which are still
CGltlvated in certain parts of the world
form part of the new exhibit of cultivated
wheats which have recently
been added to the economic collector
of Field Museum of Natural History
at Chicago. ^
Modern cultivated wheats from various
parts of the world complete the
exhibit. Most of the wheats have been
acquired through the co-operation of
the office of cereal investigation of the
Department of Agriculture. This department
is constantly engaged in
growing new and old varieties of wheat
is order to determine their suitability
under various conditions in the United
Chicago Outciasses London.
^ Chicago has another "busiest spot
In the world" besides State and Madison
streets, says the Tribune. Fred
erick Rex, city statistician, recently
made public figures showing that vehicle
traffic over the new Michigan
boulevard bridge is nearly twice as
much as that over the London bridge.
The figures show that on an average
week day 30,569 automobiles, 404 motor
busses, 2,011 trucks and 1,414
wagons?a total of 34,488 vehicles?
pass over the bridge every twelve
hours, as combared with 18,387 over
the London bridge.

that there were no insects on It. On
the eighth of last month, she says, a
lftrge butterfly flew from the branch.
The butterfly is a pretty fawn in color
ftlld has bright blue dots on its wings.
It wSls still alive and thriving at the
time of writing, although the weather
