HOW BEE3 MARK A TREE.
Wha It Um Nat Bait Thm, Tbr
"Ben hare a language of their ownr
said a western bee expert the Other
day, "They carry different meaning!
by their buzilngs, and they urder-'
. stand each other like a too: but I
found out one thing about them that'
I don't think anybody else .didbees
novo got a written language and they
send communications to each other. I
found thla out after years of cloas
observation. When the bees, get too
awfully numerous In a! tree nil up the
bOllOW BO .that It's too cr&wdod , Inr
yomfort certain wlae bees' are aent
fcut to prospect. Whn a pioneer of
(this kind flnda a big llkely-lookine
tree wlth a hospitable-looking wind-
cracn in it; be, takes! plenty of time
ond 'goea all. over It carefully.- Some
times he finds that, while the placo
looks nice and commodious on tho out
aide, the knothole leads Into a shallow
receptacle, or the crack Is not deep
enough to accommodate even a bach
elor bee, much less a whole brood. In
such a case he geta out and writes, a
message to all and sundry beea that
may come along that way: 'This treo"
Is no good. That knothole la a fako
and the wind-crack Is a frost pass It
up!' He writes thla with hla tall
stringing honey along us we string
Ink. If the treo Is all .right he puts
up a sign to that effect. The next bee
scents the honey, 'lights and reads tho
first words of the message, and If the
report la unfavorable, flics off, saying
'Hm-m-m-ht' and doesn't worry him
self any further about It. Ob. yea,
bees are cute, and If you've got the
Idea that they're slow, It's because
you aru slow yourself." Denver Post.

Zebra law may not be so Important
to tne average citizen aa aog law, but
It is worth knowing It you frequent
menageries. One Marlor, visiting an
Oldham show, found a stable door
open, and went In and stroked tho ze
bra, whereupon the ungrateful beast
tot out with his heels and pushed him
through a partition Into another stall,
whero another zebra hit hla hand,
which had to bo amputated, Could he
recover irom mo zcoraa ownerr A
Jury thought ho could, but the Court
ot Appeals- said not, A zebra Is at
present legally n wld anlmtl, and
likely to remain so, since the advance
of the motor car makes against tam
ing new animals for harness. Now, a
man's duty with regard to his wild
beast Is to keep It secured, so that It
may not go about seeking whom It
may devour, and secured his zebras
were. True, the door was-caeually left
open, and If the visitor had merely
gone Id and been kicked, he might
have recovered! but he "Invited" his
kicking by stroking. Zebras do not un
derstand magnanimity. All the same,

One of the. saddest of modern bal
loon tragedies waa that In which Mr.
Walter Powell of Malmesbury and aj
member of the. house of commons lost .
his life. Mr. Powell, accompanied by
CapL Templar, ascended from llath In
the war baloon "Salauln." At Brldg
port the machine deacended suddenly,
and CapL Templar waa thrown out
and aeverely Injured, Before It could
bo secured, the 'Saladln" rose swiftly
again, carylng Ita unconscious occu:
pant Mr, Powell with It. For many
weeks the fate ot tho M. P. was veiled
in mystery, and It waa surmised he
bad .fallen Into the ea and waa
drowned. Fragments of a wrecked
balloon were found on the outskirts
of Spain some months afterwards, but
whether.lt was the unfortunate' "Sal
adln" was not' proved. In 180S two
Parisians had a dispute, and they de
cided, to adjust It by a duel. Not' con
tent with the ordinary method of set
tling quarrels, a novel Idea was ven
tilated .and adopted, They obtained
a pair -of large balloons, and each man,
accompanied by hla seconds, en.U-4
one ot tbe aerial chariots. Whet,

of formidable dimensions. After two
or three shots bad been fired ono bt
them managed to out a hole through
.the balloon of hla adversary. The silk
en covering was torn open, and the
duellist, together with hla seconds, was
dashed to pieces on the roofs of tho
bouses below. The other balloon sailed

MILES OF STAMPS.
Millions of Thorn Woro Printed IVut
Toor t7 Undo Som.
Uncle Sam printed Just a few postage
stamps during the year 1899. The num
ber of 2-cent stamps Issued' during the
year was about 2,600,000,000. Such u
number, obviously, la beyond the grasp
ot the human mind, but perhaps the
matter may be made more clear by
putting It otherwise. An ordinary 2
cent stamp Is exactly ono Inch long.
'From this fact, by a little calculation,
Jt Is easy to discover that tho number
of stamps of this denomination Issued
In 1899, placed end to end, would ex
tend a distance considerably exceed
ing 39,000 .miles. In other words, they
would mako a continuous strip ot
stamps, each one adorned with tho
head of the father of his country,
stretching Jn a belt moro than once
and a half around the equator. Of
course, though tho 2-cent stamps are
those principally used, there aro oth
ers. Enough 1-cent postage stamps
have been Issuod during the year 1898
to stretch from New York city, by way
of Europo and Asia, to Bombay, In
dia, If similarly arranged In one atrln.
All other stamps, aa to production and
sales, are ot minor Importance; com
paratively speaking, but It la lntereat.
Ing to know t&at almost ono mllo of
$1 'stamps were, manufactured for tho
demand i)f 1898. Of 85 stamps tho
production was equivalent to a little
more than half a furlong, or about ono-
fifteenth ot a .mllo.
