Vindictive Robin. That Attack Even Mesa
The conduct of birds U sometimes pecu
liar and very queer. At the North End
and on the Hill are two peculiar cases of
eccentricity in robins, whose conduct Is
not less notable and perhaps less readily
understood than that of a kingbird who
some years ago made her nest on the lower
branch of a pear tree near a North End
residence. That bird so annoyed a little
party of young croquet players on tha
Mvs-sn-esrt&s ire bySyiqc down at them
and snapping her bill in their eyes almost,
as to break up their games. .To punish
her for her impudence a pole was thrust
up repeatedly by the side of the nest.
This so angered the mother bird that
whenever that person appeared, coming
down the step on the lawn, she would fly
at him and seem determined to peck his
eyes out. Soon she learned to fly at him
as soon as he appeared on the steps, before
he got down to the lawn and also to
punish him in an unlooked for way; a kind
of artillery practice in which the aim was
generally at the victim's head and it
rarely missed. The robin is no such bird.
But the one at the North -End, evidently
the proprietor of a nest of young birds near
by. is the implacable foe of a particular cat.
This feline is a pet black cat, whose mis
tress keeps him as much as possible in the
upper tenement where she lives, letting
him take sun and air up there in the open
There, as soon as the robin sees him, she
flies right at him not waiting for the cat
to attack her or her young, but bouncing
right into his face, till she fairly forces
him to beat a retreat. Sometimes she
finds him on the lawn. Then there is a
set combat. The bird flies right at the
cat's eyes. The cat, snarling and snap
ping, jumps back and then jumps for the
bird. The bird nimbly retreats execut
ing a backward movement on the lawn,
as swift und dexterous as only a bird can
execute and then flies at the eat, pecking
at his eyes. The cat's mistress, fearing
for her pot, one day interfered, and grab
bing him in her arms was about to take
him off the field, when to her astonish
ment the robin flew at the cat where she
held it in her arms, and then flew in the
woman's face, forcing her to drop the cat
and run to save her own eyes.
Next day the cat w:is seen to go to a low
swung hammock under some trees, and
reaching up and getting hold of it he was
enjoying a nice little swinj all by himself,
when his bird foe espied him and flew
down at him, driving nim i.Lcnominiously
off. A day later he was seen on the fence,
where the robin again got at him, but he
held his ground (or rather fence) bravely
that time, and the robin stood in front of
him. "If ever a bird utUTcd profane
abuse," said a spectator, "th:it robin was
the bird. ISr.ch another abusive scolding
no cat surely e ver had." But the cat could
stand that lxtter than the bird's beak
aimed r.L Lis eyes. This soi ne occurred on
the back yard fen.e of a house o:i Wooster
street. iiarnord Tiaies.
The Size of It.-iiuil:-nps.
now larc is a drop of rain? rrobably
most people have a notion that raindrops
are nearly ail of one size, although it is a
matter of common observation that in
what is called a misty rain, or a drizzle,
the individual drops are very small. The
question of the siz of raindrops is not so
unimportant as might be supposed, and
Mr. E. J. huwe has collected many facts
bearing upon it, and presented them to
the Koyal Meteorological society.
He employed in his experiments sheets
of slate, m.--le in book form so as to be
readily closed, and ruled in inch squares.
The impressions of the drops were caught
on the slate and afterward carefully copied
He discovered that the size of raindrops
varies from a speck so small as to be almost
invisible up to a diameter of two inches.
Every reader has probably noticed that
the raindrops preceding a thunderstorm
frequently assume gigantic proportions,
thouyh he may not have suspected that
they could ever attain so groat a size as
Mr. Iowe has discovered that they do.
Other interesting facts about raindrops
which have beeu broughtout by Mr. Lowe's
experiments ara that drops of the same
size do not always contain the same amoi it
of water, and that some of the largest drops
are hollow. Youth's Companion.
"These little green frogs are something
new for bnit." said a dealer in anglers'
supplies. "They are made of soft india
rubber. Here are earthworms, also of the
same material, threaded on hooks. They
save a great deal of trouble when real ones
are scarce, and young ladies provided with
them while fishing do not have occasion to
constantly annoy their male escorts with
requests that their lines be attended to.
Pike and certain other carnivorous lishes
very much enjoy a small mouse on the rare
occasions when such a luxury is obtaina
ble, and so these little counterfeit mice are
supplied to tempt their appetites. Imita
tions of various kinds of animals for use as
bait are becoming more numerous every
season. In this box of counterfeit insects
are grasshoppers, ladybugs, bronze and
black beetles, caterpillars and bees. It is
not necessary to mention the hundreds of
species of moths and othe r bugs that are
reproduced in the shape of artificial 'flies,'
made of bits of feathers and fur that are
gathered from all parts of the world for
the purpose." "Washington Star.
The Discovery of Tea.
By whom or when the virtues of tea as a
beverage were discovered is "lost in the
wide revolving shades of centuries passed."
The famous herb is spoken of in Chinese
annals as far back as 2,500 years B. C, at
which time its cultivation and classifica
tion was as much of an art as it is today.
Tradition says that its virtues were dis
covered by accident. King Shen Nung
She, "The Divine Husbandman," who
flourished forty centuries ago, was boiling
water over a fire one evening when some
tea leaves hanging over the vessel were
loosened by the heat and fell into the
steaming fluid. Nung She partook of the
decoction while it was hot "and felt him
self renewed in limb and sight for seven
days thereafter." Then and there he con
secrated tea as the sacred beverage of
China. St.- Louis llepublic.
The Price of Glasa Eyes in England.
The best glass eyes are made in Paris,
where patients are generally sent who are
anxious for a perfect match; but excellent
ones, at a much lower price, are made in
Birmingham; and if care is exercised in
the choice, a perfect match can generally
be obtained. Lately German eyes have
been supplied to many hospitals, costing
wholesale only about 2s. (id. each, t A
stock of 800 of these is sufficent for ordi
nary work, and they can be supplied to
poor patients for four or five shillings each
an immense blessing, as many a mill
lrl and factory hand can testify. Lon

The Best in the World.
Senator Henry C. Nelson, of New York,
On the 27th of February. 1883. I was
taken with a violent pain in the region of
the kidney 8. I suffered such agony that
I could hardly stand up. As soon as
possible I applied two AUcock's Porous
Piasters one over each kidney, and laid
down. In an hour, to my surprise and
delight, the pain had vanished and I was
weil. I wore the plasters for a day or
two "as a precaution, and then removed
them. I have been usintr AUcock's Por
ous Plssters in my family for the 1-tst ten
years, and have always found them the
quickest and best remedy for colds.

my experience I believe they are the best
