Peter Fry, Woodruff, Pa., writes: "Af
ter doctoring for two years with the
best physicians in Waynesburg, and
still getting worse, the doctors advised
me if I had any business to attend to I
had ibetter attend to it at once, as I
could not possibly live another month

Fow They Were Made by the Ancient
Battaks of Sumatra.
A near approach to the form of a
modern book was made by an obscure
people called the Battaks, who in old
en days inhabited the island of Suma
tra. They invented, or adopted from
some unknown source, a form .of book
consisting of a long~strip of bark five
or six inches .vide and closely resem
bling a piece *Egyptian papyrus.
They ses. > have taken a distinct
step forwaro. in the bookmaking art,
fo instead of rolling their strips of
bark in Egyptian fashion they folded
them into accordron plaits, so that
they took exactly the form of modern
books with uncut leaves.
Wooden covers were then put on ei
ther side, and the whole was some
fimes bound together with a piece of
snakeskin. Had the Battak scribe gone
one step further by cutting the leaves
and writing on both sides the result
would have been an exact prototype of
a modern book.
The Hindoos used a palm lea'f two
or three inches wide, cut in sections
and dried. Each section may be com
pared with the leaf of a book, and
they were piled up in sequence or per
forated and strung together like a ve

A. pompous g lshdan entered a

the head waiter.
"I say, old chap, that's rawther hard

*"Oh, not so bad, after all," replied
the head waiter; "not so bad, simply a

MONKEY FACED OWLS.
A Queer River Cliff Colony In South
On the banks or the Santa Ana river,
in southern California, is a queer col
ony. It is situated in the cliffs which
rise above the surface of the river and
has a multitude' of inhabitants. In
passing along the river by daylight one
would not imagfne that the cliffs were
inhabited, for the members of the col
ony are fast asleep in the chambers
of the cliffs. But at dusk there is a
change. At every one of the openings
with which the cliffs are perforated ap
pears a countenance so human-like in
its expression that the beholder is apt
to imagine that these must be the
faces of the'pixies and elves of .whom
he delighted to hear in his childhOOd
The tiny faces belong to a family
having a name nearly as large as the
individuals are small. It is the family
of Strix pratincola. or monkey faced
owl. So much do their faces resemble
thuse of human features that they are
often called the human faced owl. In
the holes of the cliffs they pass their
days and. rear their young. At night
they emerge in flocks and search the
fields for mice, gophers and insects,
upon which they live. This owl does
not boot as do most owls, but utters
a low, chuckling whistle as It flies
about in search of prey.
Farmers and fruit raisers in southern
California are warm friends of the
bird, for it destroys many of the pests
which annoy them and injure their
crops. The eggs of the little owl are
white, and five or six form a litter.
