ripe the jerboa gnaws through its

also protects it from the heat. On the

CUSTOMS OF WAR
Rules That Contending Armies
Are Expected to Obey.
A GRIM CODE OF ETIQUETTE.
The Enemy May Be Starved to Death
or Into Yielding by Stopping His
Supplies, but His Food Must Not Be
Poisoned-Prisoners of War.
War-that is, warfare between civi
lized nations-has its code of etiquette
known as the customs of war, some of
which are written. others tacitly agreed
to. and these rules and regulations con
tending armies are supposed to regard
as sacred and to obey them rigidly.
Obvious examples of fighting eti
quette are the rules which protect the
Red Cross Blag of the ambulance and
forbid the use of explosive or, within
limits. expanding bullets.
Nominally a general may use any
means in his power to bring his foe to
subjection, but there is a well defined
boundary line. A leader may cut off
his enemy's food and water supplies.
He may subject him to all the horrors
of famine and thirst, but he must not
poison his food or water.
Suppose a place Is besieged and that
outside the walls are wells which the
besiegers cannot effectively hold and
which the besieged can reach under
cover of night. The besieger would be
justified in sending parties to fill up the
wells with earth and stones or to de
stroy them with dynamite. On the
other hand, to pollute the wells with
poison or to throw dead animals into
them would be an infamy.
A 'prisoner of war" has his rights.
He may be asked to give his parole
s. e.. to promise not to escape-but he
must not be forced to give his parole
and Is not to be punished for refusing
to do so. A prisoner on parole who at
tempts to escape is liable to be shot.
either when escaping or If retaken
An unparoled prisoner may also be
shot while in the act of escaping, but
if recaptured it would be murder to
shoot him, and he should not be pun

Thus be may be ordered to assist in
draining the camp in which he is a
prisoner, but it would not be fair to
put him to building fortifications.
The customs of war justify the em
ployment of spies, but under certain
rules. If a soldier voluntarily turns
traitor the other side Is entitled to
make use of him, but it is not honor
able to tempt a soldier to betray his
If thus tempted a man may pretend
to turn traitor and deceive the enemy
with false information. On the other

deserter. would be dishonorable con

BRAVE MOTHER STORK.
Her Nest Ablaze, She Will Stay by and
Perish With Her Young.
So strong is the mother love devel
oped in the stork and the lark that it
amounts to a heroic passion. The
stork. which spends the winter in
Egypt and the summer In northern and
western Europe, likes to build its nest
on the top of some steep gable roof
Such a nest is often a real nuisance to
pan. It is from three to five yards in
diameter. It swarms with lizards, frogs,
toads and other disagreeable creatures.
It becomes In course of time so heavy
that It will break the roof if not arti
ficially propped up.
Nevertheless for various supersti
tious reasons the stork Is not only wel
come but even courted by the Euro
pean peasants, and it cannot be denied
that the respect with which the bird is
regarded is to some extent deserved.
If the house takes fire and the young
storks happen to be of an age at which
they cannot be saved by being taken
away from the nest the stork mother
does not abandon them. Standing
erect in the nest, flapping her wings to
waft away the smoke and the flames
and crying out now and then, she re
mains with her young, perishing with
The skylark, which builds its nest in
the meadows, runs away from it when
frightened. She proceeds for four or
five yards under the clover and rises
perpendicularly in the air, pouring forth
her song in its wildest strains in order
to divert the intruder's attention. But
the peasant boy knows that so long as
she remains hanging at the same point
in the air he is still four or five yards
from the nest, and he uses the direc
tion of her movements and the ring of
her song to ascertain the exact spot.
If it chances that the young larks are
just about to break through the shell
of the eggs, at which time the mother
instinct Is at its height, it is said that
at the very moment when the nest is
touched the little bird will acually at
tack the intruder.-Harper's Weekly.
