Owls Kill Many Mire.
Mr. Nicholson has Issued an appeal to
landowners and country folk generally
not to kill off every bird of prey, but,
instead of nailing the skin of an owl or
a hawk on a burn door because it bears
an evil name in the poultry yard, and is
in the black books of the gamekeeper,
to preserve it, within limits, at least as
sedulously as the partridges and pheas
ants in whose interests it is destroyed.
The barn owl (Aluco flitmmetis) is unde
niably the farmer's friend and by no
means the sportsman's enemy. From
observations made during the nesting
time it hns been calculated that it will
bring to its callow young a mouse about
once every twelve or lifteen minutes,
and as many as twenty good sized rats,
perfectly fresh, have been counted in a
single neBt. A nest containing five
owlets was placed under a hencoop,
and no less than twenty-four rats, large
and small, brought there by the parent
birds, were found lying outside the coop
the following morning. Edinburgh
Destroyers of Grasshoppers,
There is a small reptile out west
known as the fence ' lizard, which
catches and eats a great many grass
hoppers. The species is very common
in the infested regions. Skunks are
most active enemies of the insect and
have been known to ascend trees for the
purpose of catching them. For obvious
reasons it will hardly be practicable to
encourage these particular mammals,
but no such objections would apply to
toads, which are apt to swarm wherever
the "hoppers" are, gobbling the latter
Many planters in California employ
flocks of turkeys for the purpose of free
ing their orchards and viueyards of
grasshoppers. One turkey will destroy
an almost incredible number in a single
day. Incidentally the birds are fattened
at the cheapest possible rate. They are
so fond of such food that sometimes
thoy devour too many and die of indi

The Daughter Speaks.
A lady, apparently of great wealth,
had been for more than an hour impos

patient saleswoman to fit with a ready

hope of adding one more sale to her

the saleswoman and made her indefati

hope was in vain, for her customer final

Royal Flute Player.
Frederick the Great made generous
presents to all musicians except flute
players. He played the flute remarka
bly well himself, and his proficiency
sometimes led to acts that caused dis
appointment to his brother artists. A
famous flutist once visited Potsdam
and asked permission to play to the king,
hoping that Frederick would show his
appreciation of his skill by some valua
Frederick received him gi.icionsly,
and listened attentively while he played
a difficult piece.
"You play very well," he said, "and
I am very glad to have heard a virtuoso
of such ability. I will give you a proof
of my satisfaction."
So saying he left the room. The mu
sician waited, guessing nt the probable
nature of the "proof."
Presently the king retmnrd with his

which had just lieen executed for him.

Flidilns; for Sponges.
The British consul in his report on the
trade of Tripoli remarks that the siKinge
fishery on that const is entirely in the
hands of Greeks, and is carried on by
means of numerous small craft, employ
ing about 700 men among them. The
fishing takes place in the summer months
only and is effected by machine boats
provided with proper diving apparatns,
or by trawlers and harpoon boats. The
diving machines, as the divers have time
to select and cut them, naturally secure
the best sponges, but the trawl nets and
harpoon boats, which can only fish in
comparatively shallow waters, to a great
er or less extent damage the sponges by
tearing them from the Ixittiin.
The best sponges are found to the
westward of Tripoli, the quality becom
ing inferior toward the east. The div
ing is dangerous, owing to the presence
of sharks, and other accidents to he met
with, such as remaining too long under
the water or diving beyond the proper
limits, which often exhausts the divers
and proves fatal to them. English
How the Continents Attraet Seas.
The effect of gravitation in heaping np
the sea waters upon the shores of conn
nents is one of the most Interesting, as
well as the most curious and least con
sidered, fa"ts in connection with old
ocean's history. Thus the continents
are all situated at tops of great hills or
mountains of water, and to cross tho At
lanta or any other ocean the ship has
to first go down the sloping sheet, cross
the valley and then climb tho monn
tain of water on the other side before it
safely reaches a harbor.
In this connection the interesting cal
culation has been made that in mid
ocean on the Atlantic the depression is
about three-fourths of a mile below the
level of the water at coast line, while
ship in traveling from San Francisco to
Yokohama, Japan, must cross a valley
at least a mile in depth. St. Louis Re

the reverse. The greatest tomboy we

the unhappy bit of potchwork that never
seemed to progress beyond a most un
sightly square that had been nsed to
wipe away the tears from a very dirty
little face bent over tho obnoxious bit of
ladylike employment, and the hospitals
served to make np for the abhorrence of
those childish days of anything that
savored of respectable self sacrifice.

where the most charming women have

A Story from Paris.
I was residing in Paris as representa
tive of a London firm. An English girl,
who accompanied my wife to the French
capital as upper servant, was married
soon after onr arrival there to a young
French artisan, who almost immediate
ly disappeared. He had been knocked
down by a runaway team and wounded
In the head. He was conveyed to a hos
pital, and when he recovered his past
life was a blank to him. He could not
even remember his name. He drifted
about, living upon charity, until strong
enough to work, when he secured em
ployment, and by industry and economy
acquired a snug little sum of money.
One day his wife met him and threw
herself into his arms. He did not re
member her, but seemed delighted to
meet one who knew him and tell him of
his post life. He came home with her,
and both my wife and myself Identified
him. He did not yet realize his rela
tionship to the young woman, but asked
if she was not his sister. I thought the
young wife's heart would break. I be
lieved the follow was shamming and
spoke to him pretty sharply. Ho then
told his story and referred me to the
hospital physician, who certified to its
truth. He was perfectly sane, bnt conld
not recall a single instance in his life
prior to the time he was run down in
the streets. He accepted his wife, re
sumed his name and they are very
happy together, but the first twenty fivo
years of his life are still a blank to him.
Interview in St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A Joker Among Ttlrda.
The bluejay is the most persistent
practical joker in the feathered king
dom. He will conceal himself in a
clump of leaves near the spot where
small birds are accustomed to gather,
and when they are enjoying themselves
in their own fashion will suddenly
frighten them almost to death by
screaming out like a hawk. Of course
they scatter in every direction, and when
they do so the mischievous rascal gives
vent to a cackle that sounds very much
like a laugh. If he confined his pranks
to such jokes as this, however, he would
not be such a bad neighbor to birds
smaller than himself, but when he
amuses himself by breaking the eggs in
their nests and tearing the young to
pieces with his bill he becomes a pesti
lent nuisance, and they often combine
their forces to drive him out of the
neighborhood. They do not always
succeed, for he is as full of fight as of
mischief, but a severe conflict teaches
him that they, too, have their rights, and
this induces him to mend his manners.
An Old Ilueeaneer.
"I recently met a survivor of Pirate
Lafitte's band of freebooters," said
Thomas Haines, once a lieutenant in the
United States navy. "He was a tough
looking specimen, and must have been
well past eighty years of age, for it is
more than sixty years since Lafitte had
his headquarters on Galveston island
and preyed upon the commerce of the
Gulf. The relio of those half forgotten
times was an inmate of a Jersey City
charitable institution and was not much
inclined to discuss bygones. He said,
however, that Lafitte was a very hand
some Frenchman more than six feet in
height, well made and possessed of won
derful talents as a commander. He
ruled the toughest lot of men ever con
gregated on one island as though they
were a flock of lambs. Occasionally a
lawless spirit would rebel, however, but
his days thenceforth were brief and full
of trouble. Every woman who came in
contact with Lafitte fell in love with
him, and he was as safe among his fe
male friends in New Orleans as on Gal
veston island surrounded by his armed
buccaneers." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
