MARVEL IN ANIMAL SOUND
Traveler Writes Feelingly of Wonder
ful Bray Put Forth by tho
Donkeys of China.
In all the east today the donkey is a
favorite means of transportation, both
for travelers and commercial burdens.
It was so in the days of the patriarchs,
Isaac and Jacob, and so it will remain
probably for ages to come. But noth
ing in China is just like the samo thing
anywhere else In the world, the don
key being no exception. Dr. Chester
of Nashville Says: "Their gait Is a
ugh, insufferable Jog, and their bray
is a unique phenomenon.
"The power of heredity, working
through millenniums of Isolation, with
no modification from foreign admix
ture, has developed in the bray of tho
Chinese donkey a quality all its own.
There are no words in English to de
scribe the heart-rending pathos of it
It was as if an appeal to heaven
against the cruelty, and oppression of
ages were at last finding utterance In
one long, loud, undulating wall. And
when our party of three met another
party of six and all nine of tho don
keys began at one time to exchange
the compliments of the day, then
pathos gave place to terror and one
could only sit appalled and trembling
as the mighty reverberation rolled
away on its Journey round the world.'
Useful Pets In the Orient.
When I .first took up my residence
in Singapore one of the strangest
things I saw was a number of lizards
that crawled about the walls, says the
London Telegraph. My first few days
were spent in one of the largest and
most up to date hotels, and I thought
it strange that such things .should be
allowed "the run of the house."
On making Inquiries, I learned that
theso little animals were called "chl
haks," and are necessity in every
house, as they do no harm to anything
or anybody except the numerous in
sects (mosquitoes included) that all
tropical countries are plagued with.
The chlhak is treated with the great
est respect, and some of them are
quite tame. There is one little fellow
always on our dining table, and an
other can always be found under a fel
low boarder's Inkstand. The boarder,
being a "braw Scot," has christened
his little friend "Weo Jock."
Fortune telling is almost as old as
tho human raco itself. Wo have no
knowledge of tho time when or placo
whero It originated. We only know
that tho practice was in vogue as far
back as wo can go. Some claim that
it had its beginning with tho astrolo
gers, who claimed that they were
ablo to foretell tho future by aid of
tho planets. Tho oldest of tho na
tions were familiar with tho practice,
and by the gypsies It has been carried
all over tho world. It is perfectly
natural for man to want to know
about tomorrow and next year, and it
required but llttla offort on his part
to listen to tho fortuno tellors, To
this day the business is carried on
with profit by the gypsies and othor&
who Impose upon tho credulity of tho
Heard the Rattle.
The witiiQbs on tho stand was bolng
subjected to cross-examination. In an
swering one question1 ho nodded.
Whereupon tho court stenographer,
Yho could not tea tho witness, de
manded, "ALjwer that question."
Tho wltncia replied: "I did answer
It; I nrdded my head."
"Well, I heard thu rattle, but could
not tell whether it was up or" down
or from side to side," answered th$
stenosrupber- Law Js'otei.

Horndon-on-the-Hlll, a village of six

London newspaper the other day
found In this village, which by the
way has not a doctor In it, twelve
persons whose united ages aro 1,040
years, these ages ranging from eighty
four to ninety years, while young per

More Study Family Tree.
The growing interest in ancestry
indicates that Americans are coming
to believe that It is of some conse-
quenco to knqw from whom they are
descended, the Magazine of American
History states. Long lines of ancen
try are revealed In each person, and
this ancestry, if understood, will as
sist materially in various directions.
One cannot know too much about
himself and in acquiring a knowledge
of his ancestors he Is learning the
most Important facts about his own
personality. This has been demon
strated many times.
Genealogy is the most fascinating
branch of history. Everything else

ancestry is becoming more popular
and is, in numerous ways, revolution
