they are not. only common, but exceedingly
tame, lmililinjr their nests near roads and
houses. One nest was found in a small
live oak near a mart, only thirty feet from
the ground, built of slicl.s of the poison
oak ami sae brush. An old nest wasclose
by. Another eale had d coi-ated its nest
with a l.-irfje "soap root' by way of orna
ment; and the next yenr the same bird
built close by, nnrt also rrocured a "soap
root" to place on the side of its nest, which
showed some individualit y in ta.ste.
A third e.-icle had a fain y for sacks, and,
after its old nest, whic h --ontnini-d a corn
sack, had been blown oi.t by h storm, it
built a fresh one close by, and in this was
fou ml another and a new -ack. The eagles
seem to be, at any rate .n sonic p.irts of

was in Husband, and to have the same pro

Select !iik Quotations.
Cnre must betaken in the selection of
quotations. One is very apt to copy a fine
passage, and find on rending it a month
later that it is really tji.ite commonplace,
because, apart from its setting, taken away
from the glowing prefat e which led np to
it, without the mind in ii state of receptiv
ity as when the passage was first read, it
has lost all its beauty. One way of avoid
ing this is by not copying the quotations as
they are found, but making a pencil mark
on the margin opposite and writing the
number of the page on the fly leaf. Then,
when the book is finished, the quotations
ran be taken up and sifted before writing
them down. B. A. Hey. brick in Brains.

Tn some p.-u-ts of India an extraordinary
marriage ceremony is performed. The
bridegroom, bride and priest drive a cow
and a calf into the witer, and then all
three lay a hand on the cow's tail, while
the priest pours some water on it from a
brass vessel, by which act the couple are
joined forever in the bonds of matrimony.
The priest claims the cow and calf, to
gether with all the mrney the happy pair
may give to the idols to propitiate them, as
a recompense for his trouble San Fran

"Y-c-s,"' hesitated Mrs. Jones, "Iknew
it was some kind of a pollywog."
"Pollywog?" roared Jones; "that's

There was a long silence broken only
by the striking of the cuckoo clock, and
then Mrs. Jones asked humbly:
' Jeptha, what is a periwinkle?"
"Maria, it's a periwinkle," said Jones
in a tone that admitted of no dispute.
"Why do you ask?"
"Because it says in this novel, 'Her
eyes were as blue as a periwinkle,' and
I wanted to know how blue that was."
Late that night lights flickered in the
Jones household, and two seekers after

"Let me see that book," said Jones,
and the dictionary was dropped on him

all right, but why in thunder didn't ho

Jones, "if it hadn't been for that we'd
