THE SCRAPPY OSTRICH.
Hs Is Fuil of Treachery and Desrly
Loves to Fight.
Those wbo manage ostrich farms de

in the handling of the ostrich, which
in more respects than one is a decidedly
The ostrich requires, aside from
other necessary qualifications, a mas

Is at all appreciative of kindness, in
deed, he never becomes thoroughly
domesticated, say those who know
him iv captivity.
On the contrary, the ostrich is
haughtily and stolidly Irresponsive to
kindness, and so treacherous Is be
when full grown That even his daily
attendants never approach him unless
equipped with the necessary appli
ances to bring him to terms when in
an ugly or dangerous mood.
The ostrich's chief object in life
seems to be to flght on every possible
occasion. Indeed, a fight to him is
the very spice of things.
The male ostrich is not without com
mendable qualities, however. For in
stance, he mates but once and forever.
Should he. as often happens in the
course of a domestic complication, kick
his mate to death he nun:l ins true and
constant to ber memory, never seeking
a successor. In the ordinary phases of
domesticity he is attentive and help
ful. He digs the whole in the ground
that is to serve as a nest, and during
the process of incubation, which con
tinues for forty days, he relieves the
mother bird of her duties from early
evening till late the next morning.
A curious habit of the male ostrich
is his "constitutional." At sunrise and
just before twilight the male birds line
up in single file and race around the
inclosure at whirlwind speed until
thoroughly limbered up. Then, sud
denly arranging themselves in sets,
they execute a grotesque minuet with
ludicrous gravity.—Harper's Weekly.
Th» Drink Ho Got From Mrs. Hopp-
ner's Private Bottle.
In "Samuel Rogers and His Circle"
is this anecdote about Richard Forson.
the famous classical scholar and pro
fessor of Greek:
When Hoppner, the painter, was re
siding in a cottage a few miles from
London, Porson one afternoon sud
denly arrived there. Hoppner said
that he could not offer him dinner, as
Mrs. EL had gone to town and had
carried with her the key of the closet
which contained the wine. Porson
declared, however, that he would be
content with a mutton chop and beer
from the next alehouse and accord
ingly stayed to dine.
During the evening Porson said, "T
am quite certain that Mrs. Hoppner
keeps some nice bottle for her private
drinking in her own bedroom, so pray
try if you can lay your hands on it."
His host assured him that Mrs. H. had
no such secret stores; but, Porson in
sisting that a search should be made, a
bottle was at last discovered in the
lady's apartment, to the surprise of
Hoppner and the joy of Porson, who
soon finished its contents, pronouncing
it to be the best gin he had tasted for
a long time.
Next day Hoppner, somewhat out of
temper, Informed his wife that Porson
had drunk every drop of her concealed
dram. "Drunk every drop of it!" cried
she. "Heaven above, it was spirits of
wine for the lamp!"
Conquering a Critic.
William Simpson, a British artist,
who accompanied the army during the
Crimean war. said that Lord Cardigan,
the- commander, examined his early
sketches of Balaklava with "a vacant
stare," curtly remarking, "It is all
wrong." Still Simpson persevered and
was rewarded in the end "with the
expression of Lord Cardigan's highest
"The real truth was."' Simpson adds
in his simple way, "that in the last
sketch I had taken greater care than
in the first two to make his lordship
conspicuous in the front of the bri
Tho Curious Opossum.
The American opossum is one of the
most curious animals living in the
United States. It is the only one that
carries its 3'oung in ,a pouch, like the
kangaroo. It is the only animal that
can feign death perfectly. It is re
markable for banging by its tail, like
a monkey. It has hands resembling
those of a human being. Its snout is
like a hog's, while its mouth is liberal
ly furnished with teeth. Its eyes are
like a rat's, and it hisses like a snake.

ARCHED STRINGS OF LAMPS
FOR PRINCIPAL STREETS.
System of Illumination Considered
More Effective Than Present Method.
After considering a number of new
plans of standard construction of a
permanent form of illumination there
has been prepared and tried satisfac
torily by several places a plan of in
stallation of arched strings of lamps
on the principal streets. The sketch
shows the plan well.
Th<s object sought is to increase ef
ficiency of the lighting, preserve the
harmonious effect, the pi la appear
ance and reduce the lamp maintenance
cost: also tbe consumption of current.
An important item of the old scheme
;>f lighting, even if it be necessary to
/ontinue it for years, is that it con
sumes an extraordinary amount o£ cur
rent for the effect it gives.
One of the troubles of the present
system is that the swaying and whip
ping of the loosely swung festoon
strings cause a large expense for
lamp renewals. Investigation discloses
that a curb light past will cost about
$80 or $80 per post to install and light
up. The largest item in the cost of

installing a curb post la due to chisel
ing through concrete curbs and con
crete street paving to lay conduits for
underground wires. Curb post lights
would be interfered with to a certain
extent by rows of telegraph poles.
Each one of the arches is equipped
with ten thirty-two candle power series
tungsten Incandescent lamps, giving a
total of 320 candle power per arch as
against 200 candle power in one of the
present streamers. Each one of these
lamps will be equipped with a special
ornamental reflector to give even illu
mination over a large area and reflect
oil of the light which otherwise would
These reflectors are especially de
signed to redirect the rays of light at
the most desirable angle for street il
lumination and increase the efficiency
of the lamp nearly 50 per cent. This
means that each arch will give a street
illumination of approximately double
that of the present festoon of lights.
