The Peculiar Toucan.
The most amusing thing about that
peculiar bird the . toucan was to see
Mm preparing to roost, and he began
quite early, while other birds were still
wide awake. The first thing was to
carefully cock up for it was a slow
and cautious proceeding his absurd
little scut of a tail, which was only
about three or four inches long. This
must in some way have affected his
balance, for he. never moved on the
perch after the tail had been laid care
fully back. Then, later in the even
ing, he gently turned the huge, un
wieldy bill around by degrees until it,
too, was laid along his back and buried
In feathers In the usual bird fashion.
By the way, I have always wonder
ed how and why the myth arose that
birds sleep with their beads under their
wings. A moment's thought or obser
vation would show that it is quite as
impossible a feat for a bird as for a
However, the toucan's sleeping ar
rangements resulted in producing an
oval mass of feathers supported on one
leg, looking as unlike a bird as it Is
pojsllHej to Imagine. When he Avas
ruthlessly awakened by a sudden poke
or noise, which. I grieve to state, was
often done in my absence, needless to
say I heard that he invariably tum
bled down In a sprawling heap, being
unable to adjust the balance required
by the ponderous bill all in a moment.
Our endurance would be tested to
the breaking point were our only re
source the brick tea of Tibet, made
and flavored after the true Tartar
recipe. .This tea, for the convenience
of 'porterage on camels. Is made up
In tho form of hard, solid, bricklike
lumps, which are supposed to consist
of the stems and leaves of our ordinary
tea plant. But in the majority of cases
brick tea la merely the offscourings of
the tea plantation, together with dust
and adulteration of endless other
plants. There la little of the crisp,
curly tea leaves to be found in these
When tea Is to be made, pieces are
chipped off the bricks and immersed
In boiling water. The result Is a dark,
strong flavored liquid, with barsh, un
pleasant taste. One merit alone it pos
sesses it Is undoubtedly stimulating.
The flavor of the tea is not improved
either to our taste by the additions to
It which the Tartar favors. Instead
of cream and sugar, mutton fat and
salt are usually considered the correct
things to add. and It can readily be
Imagined that the beverage thus pro
duced does not present any particular
attraction to Englishmen. Good
