FEAT OF A FOX.
Its Remarkable Display of Cunning In
Securing a Meal.
In s field of feeding hares foxes have
been observed to approach with a slow,
limping motion and holding down their
beads, us if eating clover, until they
were near enough to secure their prey.
The following Is an extraordinary in
stance of fox cunning: One week when
the ground was frozen, but bare of
snow, a farmer placed a hen under a
strong, heavy chicken coop. The coop
was boarded on one side and lathed on
the other, the lower lath within ,an inch
of the ground, which was smooth, but
sloping, with a furrow-like depression
a few inches in depth about two feet
up the slope.

Patents Air Current Equalizer.
Charles Goodwin of this city has secur
ed a patent on an air current equalizer,
which .promises a nice return Jn the
w-ay of money for the inventor. He
has received his patent from Washing
ton, D. C, and now has the benefit of
jlegal protection. The Invention relates
to a fan attachment and the principal
oWert of motion Is to nrovlde an
attachment by means of which the air
current created by a fan may he guid
ed and thus distributed over a rela
tively great area of space. It also reg
ulates the vertical angle of the air
current and permits it to be used Jn
connection with what is known as an
oscillating fan, or stationary fan, and
will be more serviceable than the
oscillating fan. Mr. Goodwin has two
offers to manufacture the article on a
royalty and some leading business
men have encouraged him to organize
a local company and manufacture the
device in this city.
Milling Company Starts Business.

The plant is equipped with modern

A PERILOUS FEAT.

The cathedral at Salisbury, England,
lifts Its spire 404 feet which Is quite
a respectable height even in the day
of skyscrapers. This spire Is topped
by a ball, and on the ball stands a
cross. From the ground the ball looks
to be about the size of an orange, but
in reality it is greater than a man's
