The migrant woodpecker whose Jirv
cackle assures us of the certainty of spring

take to high sounding titles for your hum

country folk have given him flicker, yel
low hammer, yarrup, and what Thoreau
often termed him, partridtre woodnecker.

When household cares begin, the lord
and lady of the wooden tower, like too
many greater and wiser two legged folk,
give over singing and soft words. At
home and abroad their deportment is sober
and businesslike, and except for an occa

As you wander through the orchard of
an early midsummer day and pause beside
an old apple t ree to listen to the cuckoo's
flute or admire the airy fabric of the
wood pewee's nest, a larger scale of lichen
on the lichened boughs, you hear a smoth
ered vibrant murmur close beside you, as
if the hoivrt of the old tree was pulsating
with audible life.
It is startlingly suggestive of distarlied
yellow jackets; but when yon move around
the trunk in cautions reoonnoissance you
discover the round portal of a flicker's
home and the sound resolves itself into

borers, the insidious enemies of our apple
trees. It 16 a warfare which the ground
ing habits of the golden wings make them
more ready to engage in than any other of
the woodpecker clans.
In sultry August weather, when the
shrill cry of the cicada pierces the hot air
like a hotter needle of sound, and the dry
husky beat of his wings emphasizes the
apparent fact of drought as you walk on the
desiccated slippery herbage of meadow
and pasture, the golden wings with all
their grown up family fly up before you
from their feast on the ant hills and go
flashing and flickering away like rockets

you are aware of a half unconscious listen

Oil on Bough Water 14 TlioiiKiind VearaAgo
The idea contained in the expression
"pourlnc oil on troubled waters" has been
traced as far back as Pliny (A. D. 23-79),
who speaks in his "Natural History" of
the results of pouring oil on a stormy sea.
Mr. David M. Stone, of the New York
Journal of Commerce, found an interest
ing account of the phenomenon in Rede's
"Ecclesiastical History," written in Iatin
more than 1,1IX) years ago Irom 710 to
731 A. IX
The venerable Betlo is speaking of Bish
op Alcliui, wno was permitteu to wort
miracles. He says: "A priest called Vtta
(Utta) was seut into Kent to fetch Kan
flede, King Edwine's daughter, who was
to be married to King Oswirra. He was
to go by land but return by water. Before
he departed Vtta visited the bishop and
besought his prayers for a prosperous
journey. Tne Liishop hlessetl mm, ana pre
dicting for his return a great tempest and
a contrary wind that should rise suddenly
gave him a pot of oil, saying:
'Remember that you cast into tne sea
this oyle that I give you, and anon, the
winds leing laied, comfortable fayer
weather shall ensue on the sea, which shall
send you againe with as plensnut a passage
as you have wished.'
"The tempest came us predicted, the
sailors essayed to cast 'ancar' in vain, the
water began to fill the ship, and 'nothing
but present death was looked for.' At the
near approach of death came the thought
of the bishop and the pot of oil. Taking
it in his band the priest cast the oil into
the sea, when, as if by magic, it became
quiet ami calm, and the ship was de
livered." Floating In the Water.
Next to treading water, floating on the
back is the easiest thing to do in water.
This consists in lying flat on the back,
head thrown well back, the lungs inflated,
the limbs extended, but flexible, the arms
held close to the ears, the hands over tne
head. The majority of people able to sus
tain themselves in the water prefer to float
in a horizontal position rather than in a
perpendicular manner. Both positions are
much better, in fact much safer, than the
attitude that we assume in swimming. I
have found it so. Due day iu a rough surf
I was nearly strangled with a sudden swal
low of water, and had I not been able to
float the result might have been disas
trous. Harper's Young People.
