THE STATELY STORK.
i1s Immense Power on the Wing
and His Luck of Voice.
In Holland the nests of storks are
generally on the summit of a tall post,
put up on purpose for them, on which
is fixed an old cart wheel. Says an
English writer: "A Dutch gentleman
of my acquaintance has one such post
in his grounds within sight of his 11
brary wuindow, but he improves on the
cart wheel by having an iron frame
work for the reception of the nest. The
first year it was put up, toward the
end of June, a solitary young stork
used to come daily and Inspect this
framework. I saw him there myself
one day, standing in the empty recep
tacle exactly like a would be Benedict
inspecting an empty house, contem
plating the view and wondering if the
drains are all right. The verdIlct was
apparently favorable, for next season
saw the nest occupied by the newly
wedded pair. Their power of wing is
very fine, and on hot days I have
watched them ascending spiral circles,
hardly moving their broad. black
wings, till they have looked no bigger
than files. After the young are hatch
ed they appear to be suspicious of one
another and unwilling to leave the
Storks have no voice. The only noise
they make is "klappering" (snapping
their great red mandibles rapidly and
loudly). Thus they greet one another,
generally by throwing back the head
until the upper mandible rests on the
back, but occasionally "klappet-ing" Is
performed with the head and bill In
the former position.

Considerable difference will be found
in the wearing qualities of two pairs
of shoes of the same quality and make
worn by different persons. Shoes worn
continuously in the house and outdoors
will never give as much wear as if
worn one day and left to rest a day. It
saves money to wear cheap house shoes
within doors and let the shoes worn
outdoors rest and get into shape. Keep
an old pair of shoes to wear under
rubbers. The perspiration of the feet
which india rubber excites ruins good
leather. Select strong calfskin and
keep It well oiled in winter for outdoor
wear. Low shoes are better for house
wear, because they permit of ventila
tion. The hand is free from many
of the ills' of the foot partly because
of its continuous exposure to the air.
Peculiarities of Worms.
Many creatures supposed to have
some of their "senses missing" are not
so insensitive as people often think.
Worms have neither eyes nor ears and

(vide Darwin's "Earthworms"). A
bluebottle, in spite of not having a
nose, finds out a piece of bad meat
easily enough. In short, many of the
lower animals contrive to see, hear,
taste or smnel sufficiently for their pur
pose, and often in a high degree, with
out being able to point to any special
organs of these senses In their bodies,
and to suppose they are devoid of a

Plant That Feigns Death.
In South America there is a plant,
a species of mimosa, which resorts to
death feigning, evidently for the pur
pose of preventing grass eating ani
mals from eating it. In Its natural
state this plant has a vivid green hue,
but directly it is touched by a human
finger or by any living animal it col
lapses into a tangle of apparently dead
and withered stems. Among British
wild plants the most sensitive to touch
is the Insectivorous sundew of Eng
lish bogs.--London Globe.

Pow to Jut a Woman by the
Shape' of Her Mouth.
"I judge a uian by his eyes, but a wo
man always by her lips." said Beuja
min Frankiin. And no man ever read
people more correctly.
Queen Elizabeth once refused to en
gage a waiting won-' who caie with
every pQssible recommendation, "be
cause," she said. "the woman is a tale
bearer. Do you not see the downward
dip of her lip? I will none of her."
'In choosing a wife let her be a wo
man whose lips do not droop at the
corners," advises a Persian sage. "If
a woman's lips droop her husband's life
will be a perpetual mourning time.
Nor yet should they curve too much up
ward, for that denotes frivolity."
Select for a wife one whose lips are
straight, not thin.
When the curve or arch is lacking
and the lip overhangs, not loosely, but
well defined and firm, the owner is gen
tle and ready to please.
The mouth of sagacity is large and
always well closed, with the line of the
lips firmly defined.
The witty mouth is thin lipped and
so polished and smooth that light
glances across It. The color is fine scar
let. The possessor of such a mouth
will say clever, scintillating things,
sacrificing her best friend for the sake
of an epigram.
Coquettish lips are sharply defined,
with a deep pressure under the nose
and the corners Inclined upward. Here
lie laughter and fun and love of mu
gic, flowers and animals. The smile Is
sympathetic, never tragic. Love of rid
icule will be strong. but not in a mali
cious vein. If the corners dimple deep
ly the lips are quick at repartee.-Ex
Map making has kept pace with the
progress of other arts, though its steps
are not so loud and are heard oftenest
in the schoolroom. It is really an art
to make a map and has always been
so. From the time of the earliest
crude affairs to the elaborate and ex
act pictures of today a great degree of
skill has always been necessary to
give a perfected representation. Map
making Is now at the height of its ex
cellence and popularity. The man with
land to cultivate, houses to build or
land to sell must have everything set
down on his map for reference. No
body thinks of traveling any great dis
tance without consulting a map. In
deed It Is almost impossible to escape
it, for the obliging ticket agent thrusts
It into one's hand with thoughtful
kindness, mindful of the advertise
ment within the pages as well as of the
convenience of the tourist. Maps are
so common now that there are no more
little boys who think the soil of one
state is green, another brown, another
red, because that is the way it Is col

A City of Roof Gardens.
The majority of the houses in Buenos
