THE WOLF, WILD AND TAME.
Instinctive Fact. Abont the UrtMt mod
Most Ferocioo. or the Canine Family.
In U native state the wolf is the largest
and most savage of the canine group I
is so fierce that many of the older natural
it regarded it as utterly nntamable. In
countries where they abound, wolves de-
rtror not only cattle aud horses, but men.
1 he v-olf is a very widespread animal, with
slight, variations in color and size; it ex
tends from the east of Asia, through India
and Huron, to North America, having in
all these countries t he same ferocious char
acter, killing especially in the cold season,
when much pressed by hunger men, wom
en, cl ildren, cattle and sheep; lint the woll
taken young becomes perfectly tame, is at
tache 1 to its master, learns to live with
dogs .ind acquires from them the habit ol
barking, which is entirely unknown to it
in tht- wild state.
Even when taken older wolves may be
tamed, and our engravings show the per-form.-.nces
of a pack which have recently
been exhibited in London. Each of these
animids, as may be seen, knows its own
kennt 1, and takes to it at command. They
climb stairs at the order of the keeper and
assume positions at command, and will
leap onto the shoulders of the keeper and
form very striking tableaux.
The wolf, which is one of the origins from
wuicc me tioaie-sticated dog bas doubtless
sprunz, is, it is needless to say, a most in
telligent animal, and hpnnil.ran hatsnuj
by ap lealitig to its mental faculties: but at
mt timr nine, as in toe case of dogs.it
must be impressed with the sense of the
superior qualities of its master. There is
no doubt that the instincts of the wolf re-
appeat from time to time in its descendants,
the do -nestic dog. and the action of no un
tamed wolf can lie more terrible than some
of the accounts one occasionally reads of
savage and mad dogs.
All About 1'oppiea.
Poppies wear scarlet coats like soldiers.
and are favorites with c-hildreu, who have
always thought it fine fun to pop the long
buds and unfold the crumpled red leaves
that are inside. Perbups from this habit
of popping the buds the flower got its
name. Who knows In oH EDgland the
poppy is sometimes called t lie corn rose be
cause it grows in the fields along with the
A SPRAT or POPPIES.
Pontiles are used aa an emblem of sleep.
because the white Juice which drops out of
the stein when you first breait the flower
off is siiid to give ease to people who are in
pain ai d sleep to those who cannot rest.
This juice is called opium. Our red poppy
give o very little that it would not be
worth while to collect it; a large kind that
has a white blossom is the plant from
hich opium is gathered, which grows in
India, Jhina and other parts of Asia.

SHREWD CrtTNESE SERVANT.
Ihelr Methods of Appropriating Employ
ers' Household lteionginga.
A former Detroit young lady, now mar
ried and living at Vancouver, B. C, is vis
iting relatives, and tells some Interesting
as well as amusiug stories of the Chinese,
with which article of humanity Vancouver
is overrun. They are. as numerous there
as are negroes in certain of the southern
cities, and no one would think of hiring a
white servant, because they are not to be
had. A "tenderfoot" family, she says,
ought to set the price of their first servant
u uiuurrnie as possioie, lor, should they
pay him twenty-five dollars per month to
start on, they will never be able to hire an
other for a cent less.
The Chinese servants of Vancouver are
not organized into a union. They don't
need to be. They all know each other and
all work together to the common end to
get as much as they can of the good
things. The minute a newcomer strikes
the town he is shown around. That, he
will be told by his yellow skinned breth
ren, is a twenty-five dollar house;. this a
twenty dollar house, and so on, and he
..readily promises to do as the rest do.
Mrs. McF - tells of a servant she had.
She had let a former servant, to whom she
was paying twenty-five dollars per month,
go, and hired in his place a celestial from
a "twently-flive dollee" house. The latter
was the incarnation of stolidity and stu
pidity. He could do only the simplest
tasks and cook only the plainest dishes.
Disgusted with him the lady went to see
his former mistress, to whom she told all.
"Ha bas simply been fooling you," an
swered that lady. "Ling was the best
servant I ever had a good cook, who
knew all about the choicest dishes, willing
and active. But how much do you nay
"Ah, there's the secret of his laziness.
He is merely gauging his work to make it
commensurate with his pay according to
his idea of the fitness of things."
Mrs. McF raised his pay five dollars,
and now gets the latest, dishes, etc She
has come to the conclusion that the
Chinese, especially the servants, are not
Tbey never steal, she says. But they
will lease the household belongings just as
though thev owned t hetll. Kh went-, tr, n.
birthday dinner at a friend's house one
day and was astonished to see three of her
teaspoons and two damask napkins, all
handsomely monogramed, on the table.
Her friend fortunately caught her eye at
the critical moment, aud noting the rising
flush on Mrs. McF 's face, took her
aside and explained matters. She was sat
isfied and resumed her seat at the table,
once more marveling at the mixture of
shrewdness and independence in the Chi
nese character and honesty, too, for these
things are all religiously returned, cleaned,
to their rightful owners.
She had reason later on to thank her
stars that this was the Chinese custom.
She gave a 6 o'clock dinner in honor of the
visit of an eastern friend. She wanted to
invite thirty guests, but hadu't the requi
site amount of tableware from which to
feed Uiem all at a table. In her dilemma
she remembered the old trick and ac
quainted Ling with the facts.
'Allee light, rtie sabe. Me gettee him,"
promptly responded that worthy.
She and her guests entered the dining
room that evening, and of a verity Ling
had kept his word, for upon that table was
the most varied assortment of knives,
forks, spoons, dishes, etc., she had ever
seen. The ltidiorousness of thescene flashed
upon her, and, laughing outright, she ex
plained matters to her eastern visitor, while
the rest of the company looked ou and
laughingly nodded approval. Detroit Free
. Fill the Lungs Daily.
Cultivation of deep inspiration in breath
ing is of the greatest value wherever there
is a predisposition to any lung trouble.
Half of the world never use the lower part
of their lungs ut all, thus lessening very
materially their chances of resistance to
any disease of the respiratory organs. In
such dangerous aud sudden illness as pneu
monia, for instance, a celebrated physician
has affirmed that t he chances of life would
be much greater if the patient had been in
the habit of fully filling all the lung cells
wheu in health. A little daily breathing
practice will do much to teach the proper
nse of the lungs and have invaluable re
sults in the future, and is certainly well
worth the ten minutes devoted to the exer
cise daily. .
There is a little instrument called a
"spirometer," which is used for the pur
pose, but an ordinary quill of straw, or a
glass tube, is about as efficacious. Draw
in the breath slowly until you count a de
liberate fifteeu, and exhale the air for the
the same length of time. At first a de
cided sensation of fatigue will be experi
enced when ten times are counted. In
crease by degrees until you are able to
take twenty deep inhalations without diffi
culty. This done every day will surely
broaden and deepen the chest, and greatly
increase the power of the lungs. New
The Siberian Register.
There is au administrative regulation in
force in most Siberian penal settlements
requiring political exiles to appear nt the
police station daily, semiweekly or week
ly, and sign their names in a register. The
intention, apparently, is to render escapes
more difficult by forcing the exile to come.
at short intervals, to the local authorities
and say, "I am still here; I haven't es
caped." And as a proof that he hasn't es
caped they make him sign his name in a
book. It is a stupid regulation; it affords
no security whatever against escapes; it Is
intensely humiliating to the personal pride
of the exile, especially if the authorities
happen to le brutal men; and it causes
more heartburning and exasperation than
any other regnlation in the whole exile
code. George Ken nan in Century.
Peanuts In America.
Peanuts were first introduced in New
York city about 1BU6. Tbey were known
be re long before, but were never popular.
America s peanuts nave been exported
to England, but the foreigners do not take
kindly to the fruit. On one occasion a
shipload of peanuts was taken to London,
rbere it found no sale, was then reshipped
back to New York city and sold at a hand
There are several kinds of peanuts in the
American market. These are-known aa
the Wilmington, the Virginia, the Spanish
and the Tennessee peanuts. The highest
grade of peanuts is the Spanish. The nuts
re very small, but of a superior flavor and
general excellence. New York World.
