Many visitors to the southwestern

selves by watching the qiueer motions
of "jumping beans.* the seed vessels
of a plant. each of which contain the
pupa of an insect whose spasmodic
movements cause the bean to hop and
More remarkable are Ve "jumping
cocoons" found in South Africa. The
cocoon is formed by the mother in
sect and is very bard. The pupa when
ready to emerge must cut its way out.
The front of its head has a sharp,
chisel-like edge, and by driving this
against the inside of the shell it grad
ually makes a hole. The violent mo
tions of the pupa within cause the co
coon to leap so that one has been seen

Saved Storage Charges.
Young men with meager salaries
evolve financial makeshifts abhorrent
to the moral and physical sensibilities
of their opulent elders. Said one
young sprig of boarding house gentil
ity to another who expected to seek
new quarters upon his return from a
two months' trip on the road:
"What are you going to do with all
this personal truck that is cluttering
up your room? It will cost you any
how a dollar a month for storage.'
"Not the way I am working things,"
said the man who was going away.
"I have purposely refrained from pay
ing board for four weeks, and the land
lady will hold my stuff. Of course I
shall square up when I come back
and get it again, and in the meantime
she will give it free storage."-New
Lawyers on a Strike.
Over 300 years ago one of the most
unusual strikes ever recorded took
place in Paris, when all the lawyers
walked out. so to speak. A law or
ordonnance was issued and promul
gated by the French king Henry III.
ordering all lawyers to sign their
pleadings and to state the amount
they were charging their clients for
their services. This was done so that
the lawyers could be properly and
suficiently taxed on their income.
The lawyers objected, and the strike,
causing an entire stay of judicial pro
ceedins. followed. Peace was restor
ed by the nonenforcemenlt of the or
donnace, though it was not repealed.
