themselves in the way of swollen eye lids,
faces and feet. The more seriously af

purging, with griping pairs in the stom

called in and at ones detected evi

not distracted by a preference for other

ST. JAMES HOTEL,
Talkun (Hirruta are far leas plentiful
thsn tin-) were wLy, it is ttanl toaay
have Urns 'it a few docen to talk and sums
few to aing in my time, but wby some
tarda can learn and other cannot
never could understand. Tber used to be
belief that an operatiou on the tongne
waa Herniary to snake a bird a vocalist,
and quite recently 1 bsve been asked to
split a jackdaw's toogas. U seems al most
an insult !? say thera is nothing In the ea
pentition. ' Ths only birds that really
achieve anything UkeaocUSS-lB ths talking
line are of tbe parrot kind, and UaSJ hav
thick, soft touituaaa, which woold bl(r4s
ribly if split.
The error probably aroaa froaa the fact
that some birds with divided toogass can
talk a little, but this is an exception, the
best talkers having a tongue very like that
of a humau being. Teaching a parrot to
talk is easy, but tedious. It it shows any
iuclination to niotk or imitate the diffi
culty is half ajlved. Tben all that 1 neo
eetary is to rvjK-at one word or phrsas fre
quent ly, ami use it a a greeting and fare
well. Any little catch phrase will answer,
though why "lretty Polly" Is generally se
lected I don't Lnow. "Good morning'' as
