Mrs. Clarence Burns, who Is so well
known for her philanthropic work,
says that in all her experience In visit?
ing the tenements of the p?x>r of the
city she has never been asked for alms.
Mrs. Burns has made a business of vis?
iting the poor with the hope of helplug
them whenever she saw the need, but
finds It almost Impose Ibis to make the
really deserving poor acknowledge that
they are In need of anything.
One day she vl-dted a family who
were all huddled togeth?-r In one bare.
cold room, and their faces were so
pinched she knew they were starving.
But In response to her offer to help
them the mother sold:
"No, thank you. The children have
had something today. 1 atu sure to get
After questioning as to Just exactly
what the children had bad to eat Mrs.
Burns found that they had subsisted
for three days on a few dried scraps of
stale bread. This eipvrionee. she says,

One day last summer a sour vlsaged,
middle aged, fussy woman got on one
of the smoking seats In an open car
In the Bubway. Next to her sat a man
who was smoking a cigar. More than
that, the woman, sniffing, easily made
out that the man had been eating on?
ions. Still more than that she had
the strongest kind of pu-splolon that he
bad been drinking beer. The woman
fussed and wriggled and grew angrier
and looked at the man scornfully.
Presently she could endure It no lon?
ger. She looked squarely at him and
"If yon were my husband, Blr, I'd
give you a dose of poison!"
The man looked at her. "If I were
your husband," said be, "I'd take It!"

Andubon, who was a close student
of nature, was dclighteil with the
weasel, or American ferret. Its long,
tlixlble body, Its extraordinary length
of neck, the closeness of Its fur, its
keenness of scent, Its wonderful agili?
ty and quickness of movement, all ex?
cited his admiration.
An American writer says: "The com?
mon weasel has sometimes been
caught and carried off by large hawks
and owls. Sorry was the experience
of the captor In such cases. He has
caught s Tartar. The captive will bite
Into the sides of the enemy, so that
both will fall to the ground, the bird
mortally wounded and the weasel osa-.
ally comparatively unhurt ? ? ?
The weasel's courage In defending It?
self when attacked by birds of prey Is
universally admitted, nor la It deficient
In fierce opposition to dogs and even
men when Its nest Is Invaded by ei?
ther. It usually kills for food, biting
through the head Into the brain with
such expertuess that Its victim can
scarcely utter a cry of pain. It usually
e.ifs the brain first; then the rest of
the body follows. In pursuing mice,
rats and moles It follows them into
their runs or holes. ? ? ? A weasel's
proximity to a poultry yard Is not to
be desired. Rut In barns, hayricks
and grain stacks It Is decidedly ad?
vantageous, as It will surely exteml
nate or drive away rats and mice."
The weasel's characteristics are not?
ed In two American sayings, "Catch
a weasel asleep" and "Sooner trust a
weasel with eggn." Stories are told
that a weasel will watcb a hen on the
nest for an hour, waiting for a freshly
laid egg.?Indianapolis News.
