Sound Both Shrill and Low That
We Cannot Hear.
Most" peonle suppose a mole to be
dumb, but It is not. A mole can give
a sotinl so shrill that it hasn't any
effect on the human ear at all and au
other sound so low and soft that no
human being can hear it. Yet a wea
sel can hear both these sounds as plain
ly as you can the report of a gun, and
a sound registering machine the pho
nautograph--will show them both, with
scores of other sounds you are deaf to
The usual note of the mole is a low
pur. which it uses a good deal while
it work underground, and it can also
shout at the top of its voice if hurt or
alarmed; but. though it shouted and
purred in jour ear. you wouldn't hear
It. The sound register, however, with
its delicate pencil that marks the vol
ume of sound on a paper, gives the
quality of both sounds.
A weasel, too, which is one of the
mole's enemies, can hear these sounds
through a couple of Inches of earth
ami often catches the mole when he
throws up his hillocks of earth. The
common held mouse, too. has a pur

you can hear him squeak plainly
enough if he is hurt. A death s head.
moth, too, can squeak, but that is done
by rubbing his wings together and is
not a voice at all.
But the champion of all creatures for
good hearing and one that can hear a
sound that is over 100 degrees beyond
your own limit is the common thrush.
and you may often amuse yourself by
watching him at it. He can hear a
lobworm moving underground, locate
him by the noise and haul him out.
Often j'ou may see a thrush stand
perfectly still on your lawn, cock his
ear and listen intently, then make a
couple of steps and haul out a fat lob
worm. Even the starling, which is
about the size of a thrush, cannot do
this, but he knows the thrush can. and,
being a disreputable person, with no
common honesty, he follows the young
thrushes about on their worm hunts
and steals the worms from them as
soon as they are caught. London An

CURIOUS LEGENDS THAT FLOURISH

!: nt diatomn and Traditions and
.ttnlar Xnr.ici The Story of tlie
Street of the Haven.
Every old city has its legends, its
siorles, its peculiar customs and its
haracteristic quarters. Of all the cit
ies in the new world, Mexico has clus
tered within it more of legend, history,
tradition and quaint customs and peo
ple than any other. Almost every
street has its story, and these stories
cover all the gamut of the picturesque.
the lioiTiuk the sentimental and the
In its warly history the City of Mex
ico was divided into wards, or quar
ters, each one of which washe special
home of 6onie trade or profession.
There was the street or quarter of the
shoemakers, the streets of the silver
smiths, of the bakers, of the saddle
makers, of the butchers, of the watch
makers, of the silk merchants, of the
wine sellers and so on. There was
even the street or tlie comn maters.
Many of these old names still exist,
though- the caste-like churacter of the
streets has somewhat changed. One of
the most fashionable streets of the city
is IMateios, the street of the silver
smiths. Even today there are more
Jewelry shops on this street than any
ther kind of business, and here still
are to be found the most fashionable
jewelry and art curio stores of the city.
The street of the coffin makers still
exists and Is now very appropriately
known as the Street of Death. It is a
narrow , lane, running the length of
only one block.
Cineo de Mayo (oth of May) street
was named in commemoration or uie
decisive advantage gained by Mexican
troops over the Trench, which took
place upon, that date. This naming of
treets. parks and public places after
dates is common in Spanish countries.
One end of Cineo de Mayo street en
ters the Zoealo, the principal square of
the city. The Zoealo has seen many
listoric happenings. There in oldeu
times ivas the great temple of the Az
tecs, which was, with its accompanying
base or-pyramid, larger than St. Pe

On the Zoealo, too, is the Cathedral

100 years in building. On this public

lie'o that a tunnel connects the cathe
dral with the castle of Chapultepec, the
presidential residence, three and a half
miles away, at the end of the l'aseo de
la Iieforma. one of the finest anil no
blest public drives in tl world.
One of the historic streets of Mexico
is Mariscala. This faces the north side
of the Alameda, the largest and most
fashionable park of the city. It was
along this street that the army of Cor
tez. the great conqueror of Mexico,
passed on the "dismal night" when he
was driven from the city by the Aztecs.
On this street, too, occurred some of
the most desperate fighting on that ter
rible night. There the Spaniards were
able to do nothiug against the tiger-like
ferocity and fanaticism of the Aztecs.
On the opposite side of the Alameda
is Avenida Juarez? named after the
great Mexican reformer, who had freed
the country from the grinding rule of
the church. This is a wide, well paved
street and on account of its width and
its central location is the scene of all
the public processions, especially those
of a civic character. This street is a
continuation of the great public drive,
the l'aseo de la Ueforma.
Many of the streets have very curious
names. For instance, there are the
Street of the Ixjst Child, the Street of
Peace, the Street of the Arts, that of
the Wood Owls, the Deer. Sorrow, the
Sad Indian, the Holy Ohost, of Christ,
of Jesus, of the Sanctified Virgin, of the
Purified Virgin, of Death and the Lane
of the ltat. AU of these have stories
connected with them. Many of the
streets have names that Hound impious
to northern ears. Put there is no more
thought of impiety in naming them
than there is in calling a boy Jesus. The
Street of the Holy tJhost was original
ly the Street of the Church of the Holy
Ghost. So on with the other street9
bearing sacred names. This curious, in
congruous use of sacred names is to be
frequently noted In Mexico.
The streets of. Mexico commemorate
the names of many famous rulers. They
also record tlie names of desperate
characters. There is the Street of Don
juan Manuel, who committed murder
in defense of his own honor, which he
believed his wife had trifled with. Re
port says that the house where he lived
was haunted and for very many years
it remained empty because no one
dared to live in it.
there Is also the Street of the liaven,
where it is said there lived an old man
who had sold his soul to the devil. Here
he Hved with a raven which the com
mon people believed was the devil in
disguise. One day the old man and the
bird disappeared in the course of a ter
rible thunderstorm, leaving behind
them only a few feathers and a sus
picious smell of brimstone. So the stre;
was called after Ihe raven because tha
people did not wish to take the name of
