The Foal and the Calf.
It is an interesting study to note in
domestic animals the traits of their
wild ancestors. There are some charac
teristics, of course, which are readily
recognizable as being similar to those
of animals still in a wild state, and for
this reason they give a fair idea of the
life and surroundings of progenitors.
The habits of the dog and cat are too
familiar to comment on, but take the
foal and compare his traits with those
of the calf.
The foal when a few days old can
gallop as fast as he ever can in after
life. He never leaves the dam, and
takes nourishment in small quantities,
avoiding a full meal, which would im
pede swift escape. In lying down no at
tempt is made at concealment, and
when he stands his head is held high.
These habits show that the animal's
ancestors spent their lives in the open
and not in the forests and that they
were great travelers.
The calf, on the contrary, fills hinr
self with milk, and is a poor traveler.
When danger approaches, his first im
pulse is to conceal himself. He holds
his head low in order to look under the
branches of the forest. All his charac
teristics point to the fact that the an
cestral home of cattle was in a moist,
wooded country, while the primeval
horse roamed the plains.-New York

Colonel John W. Caldwell, who went

"We were camped in Tennessee. It

boys would get leave every day to go
and 'pick greens.' One day a farmer
came to me and said he had a complaint

" 'The men of my command are Ken
tuckians and gentlemen,' said I, 'and I
cannot believe that they would wanton
ly destroy your property. They will
take things to eat, but never destroy
what they cannot use. However, if you
will point out to me the men who did
it, I will have them arrested.'
"The man left, and it was not long
until the mystery was solved. Dr.
Byrne, who was regimental surgeon,
was summoned hastily to attend a lot
of men of the Louisville company who
were rolling in agony and appeared to
have cholera. They had eaten the tobac
co plants, thinking they were 'greens.'"

Homier and Hoosier.
The Philistine tells of meeting a
woman at a literary reception in Lon
don who said she had heard the Ameri
can "hosier poet" read at Exeter hall.
"How curious that a hosier should be
come your poet laureate in America!"
The Philistine did not know what
she meant, but followed the trail of her
chat until she said that her favorite
among the "hosier poet's" poems was
"When the Frost Is on the Pumpkin,"
and then he exclaimed that it was "Ri
ley, the Hoosier poet."
"Oh, you Americans have such a
queer way of pronouncing things, " said
"Yes, but Mr. Riley is not a hosier,
he is"- began the Philistine.
But she cut the explanation short
with, "Oh, I see ! It is a joke, then.
You Americans are so funny. I suppose
you think Mr. Riley is a bluestocking,
and so you call him a hosier."

The Spaniel at His Best.
To see the spaniel at his best he
should be taken to the haunts of the
waterfowl. In the salt marshes, the
lakes and streams of the east, and in
the prairie sloughs of the west, he is in
deed a great little dog. His stumpy
legs may be poor performers on dry
ground, but they are very efficient when
it comes to swimming. The log, too, is
a hardy fellow, ready to face any weather
and cold water whenever asked. As a
retriever from water he is most desira
ble, while his intelligence and compact
form make him the best of dogs for the
ducking skiff. Of course the Irish water
spaniel is excluded from all references
to short legs and clumsiness. A good
specimen of this dog appears to be quite
The chief value of the Irish spaniel
to the sportsman is as a retriever. He
is a worthy rival of the famous dog of
the Chesapeake, and no weather is too
severe, while few tasks are too difficult,
for him He is game to the core, a very
powerful, magnificent swimmer, and to
all intents a natural retriever. His oily
coat can bid defiance to cold water,
while a vigorous shake appears to at
once dry it. He is as hardy as a badger.
He is a most intelligent and willing
worker, and will show to the greatest
advantage under conditions which
would baffle almost any other retriever
Riding on Turtles' Backs.
Having had considerable experience
in turtle catching, I know a swimmer
can frequently approach a sleeping tur
tle from behind and leap on its back
before it awakes. The creature's first
impulse is to dive, but if its rider
knows his business he can instantly
bring it to a standstill by forcing his
fingers into its horny eyes, when it at
once floats motionless on the surface.
In the case of a midshipman whom I
know of he got on a turtle's back and
enjoyed a ten minutes' ride, sometimes
on the surface of the water, sometimes
under, before he brought the animal to
Three things are certain-first, the
ability of a man to get on a sleeping
turtle's back; second, by sitting far
back on its shell to keep it near the
surface; third, to instantly stop its ca
reer by reducing it to blindness. Hav
ing regard to the brevity and simplicity
of Rougemont's account, I can quite
weil believe that lonely man on his
coral sand bank, with all his instincts
preternaturally sharpened, did actually
ride and guide the turtle as he has
stated.-Admiral Moresby in London
It is not believed that the origin of
christening the warship was due to an
act of irreverence as a mock baptism,
but that its earliest inception was the
human sacrifice, then the libations of
wine of Greece and the north, and, with
the spread of the Christian religion, the
blessing of the battleship, a custom ob
served today in all Roman Catholic
countries. The object was the same in
both the pagan and Christian rites, to
make the career of the ship successful
by an appeal to the protection of un
known powers. Even the superstitions
of those old days come down to us. We
may not steal wood to make a swift
keel for our new ship in the night, on
the principle that thieves run fast in
the darkness, but ships sail out of Mar
blehead today with a broom nailed to
he mast, and no crew will start out on
a FEriday unless under compulsion.

f he has done his own duty before he

in theirs. Let him be certain that he
mderstands the duties of citizenship in

heir obligations as citizens, although
he subject is one to which every free
an should devote careful study. They
ouldthen be capable of active and in
elligent effort and would perceive the
