Strange Anmal Friendship.
Pathetic instances are told of strange
friendships between animals in cap
tivity. A curious incident occurred in
New Orleans some years ago, when a
bear was lowered into the cage of an
old African lion. The keepers sup
posed it would be torn to pieces, and
many people assembled to see the bar
barous exhibition. The bear at once
assumed the offensive and rushed at
the lion, but, to the amazement of the
onlookers, the lion, hitherto regarded
as extremely savage and dangerous,
placed his paw upon the bear's head as
if to express his pity and tried to make
friends with him.
Taking the bear under his protection,
the lion suffered no one to approach
the cage and did not sleep until he was
exhausted, so closely did he watch over
his new friend. He even allowed him
to share his food.
The two animals would lie down side
by side, the lion usually with a pro
tective paw over the bear. His delight
in companionship was manifested un
mistakably, and his captors were hu
mane enough to let the two share the
same cage.-Kansas City Independent
Powdering the Hair.
In 1795 the mayor of Yarmouth,
England,. issued the following procla
mation: ."Owing to the present enor
mous price of corn and the alarming
apprehension of a scarcity in that most
necessary article, many towns through
out the kingdom have set the laudable
example of leaving off for a time the
custom of wearing powder in their
hair, by which means a great quantity
of wheat must infallibly be saved to
the nation, and If the price be not re
duced It may at least be prevented
from increasing. We, therefore, the
mayor, justices and principal inhab
itants of Great Yarmouth, do recom
mend the example as worthy imitation,
and we flatter ourselves the military
will not hesitate to adopt it, being
fully convinced that appearances are
at all times to be sacrificed to the pub
lic weal, and that in doing this they
will really do gcod."
Four Great Musicians.
Palestrina was a revolutionist in his
day, but is now virtually obsolete even
for the severest classicists. Gluck was
as radical an innovator as Wagner,
yet't is only occasionally and with dif
ficulty that one of his works can now
be briefly resuscitated. Beethoven Was
a madman even to many of the best
musicians as late as 1805, when, as
that musical veteran, Professor Haupt,
himself said, the "Fifth Symphony"
was rehearsed in Berlin for the first
time, and the orchestra dashed the
music from the racks, declaring it was
crazy and could never be played. Now
this same "Fifth. Symphony" is consid
ered a model of form, and its composer
is the cherished idol of conservatives
Pity For Western Nations.
The Chinese enjoy the greatest liber
ty. The laws of the western nation are
too numerous and too severe. Instances
of their bondage may be given. All the
children in the country are bound to at
tend school -at a certain age. When an
author wants to print a book, he has to
ask for a copyright. Before a man can
start a newspaper he must apply for a
certificate from his government sanc
tioning him to do so. There are fixed
regulations governing all companies
and firms. All marriages must be re
ported to a certain department for reg
istration. Thus. there is no liberty be
tween husband and wife.-Peking Sin
The Japanese art of making minia
ture landscapes and gardens consists
chiefly in starring the plant so as to
retard the circulation of its sap or life
gvng juices. Furguson, who was one
among the first of English adventurers
to visit China and Japan, mentions
the fact that he saw at Canton "a boxe
about the bigness of a ladyes snuffe
box, which did not containe a littyl

of which were in full blow, the whole

Transcaucasia grows almost every
known grain in the world. The forests
of the Caucasian mountain range pro
duce saffron, madder, oak, walnut and
boxwood lumber, while apples, pears
and grapes grow wild in these forests
to such an extent that they are export
ed in large quantities. The wine of
Caucasla is also exported, and the cot
ton of the country is second only to
that of Egypt.
Gold and siver Beetles.
The most remarkable gold beetles in
the world are found in Central Ameri
ca. The head and wing cases are bril
liantly polished with a luster as of
gold itself. To sight and touch they
have all the appearance of that metal.
Oddly enough, another species from
the same region looks like solid silver

Save the Childres.
Ninety-nine of every one hundred di
seases that children have are due to
disorcers of the stomach, and these dis
orders are all caused by indigestion.
Kool Dyspepsia Cure is just as good
for children as it is for adults. Children
thrive on it. It keeps their little stom
achs sweet and encourages their growth
and developement. Mrs. Henry Carter,
705 Central St., Nashville. Tenn.. says:
"My little boy is now three years old
and has been sutfering fromi indigestion
ever since he was born. I have had the
best doctors in Nashville. but failed to
do him any good. A fte r using one bot

gentle mode of persuasion fine and im
prisonment were resorted to. The jury
that acquitted Sir Nicholas Throck
morton was condemned to eight
months' imprisonment in addition to
the payment of a large sum of money.
In the reign of Queen Elizabeth a jury,
having reduced a prisone'r's alleged
crime of murder to that of manslaugh
ter, was at once sent to prison and
bound over in a large sum to be of
good behavior. Penalties were like
wise inflicted upon the innocent wife
and children of the offending jurymen.
Even now it is believed by some legal
authoriti.es that a judge has the right
to indlict a fne upon a juoryman refus
ing to obey his directions. Such power
is, however, not exercised except in the
case of a juror absenting himself with
out a justiniable cause. Of this prac
tice there is the following story: A
judge had fined a juryman for nonat
tendance. On hearing that he had been
unable to be present because of his
wife's funeral the judge, whose wife
was said to be not of a particularly
gentle nature, exclaimed: "Has he?
That was a goodhexcuse Indeed. I wish
we all had the same!"
The Dog In Egypt.
In Egypt the dog was a friend and
faithful servant. He lived in the house
with his master, followed him in his
walks, attended the public ceremonies,
sometimes free, at other times held in
leash by a slave or child or in .princely
families by a favorite dwarf. At his
meals he had his place marked under
the benches of the guests. As in
Greece and Rome, he was there to dis
pose of bones, the fragments of meat
and the pieces of bread that were
thrown down and in a general way to
keep the dining room clean. These were
certainly not: very refined fashions, and
if our house dogs had to satisfy them
selves inl this way they would be likely
to die of hunger.
The ancients did not feel the delicate
tastes and disgusts in such matters
that we esperience. Their life present
ed excessive refinements and rude fea
tures of which we have no idea side by
side. The touse dog In Egypt was a
domestic, working at his trade, only
his trade was one in which we have
ceased to employ him.
The Cry of the Loon.
The cry of the loon is one of the
strangest, weirdest sounds In nature.
Those who have heard it can scarcely
wonder that it has so often been woven
into song and legend.
A blood red ring hung round the moon,
Hung round the moon. Ah. me! Ah, me!
I heard the piping of the loon,
A wounded loon. Ah. me!
And yet the eagle feathers rare
L trembling, wove in my brave's hair.
Almost all writers who have attempt
ed to describe the cry of this bird have
likened it to unmirthful laughter.
Thus Mr. Vernon Bailey, speaking of
the sound, describes it as follows: "On
ly on the lonely lake In the heart of the
woods do you get the startling thrill of
the loon's wild cry-one clear, piercing
note or a long, quavering, demoniacal
laugh that to the timid suggests a herd
of screaming panthers."
"Why, George, what an enormous
pile of letters!" exclaimed the bride of
a week. "Billets doux, I suppose."
"No, my dear," replied the other half
of the sketch. "They, are billies over
