Cfaaaed With a MoutUfuL
Captain Bendire, a well known orni
thologist, was riding along the banks of
Rillitto creek, Arizona, when he saw a
big black hawk. He followed the flying
bird and at length came tip with it,
perched on a dead limb of a cottonwood
tree. A bulky nest was in a fork of the
tree about 40 feet from the ground. The
mate of the hawk which the captain had
been following was sitting on the nest.
Hoping to secure a trophy. Captain
Bendire climbed up to the nest, in which
he found a single pale blue egg. The
parent birds circled around manifesting
their anger at the intrusion by shrill
screams, but the captain took the egg
He put it in his mouth for safe keeping,
as he required both hands in his descent.
Suddenly from his elevated perch he
caught sight of several Apache Indians
crouched in a small canyon about 50
yards distant. They were evidently
He was awake to his danger in an in
stant, but he manifested no signs of
alarm and descended to the ground in a
leisurely manner. Had the Indians per
ceived that they were discovered, they
would have been waiting for the egg
hunter at the foot of the tree.
As it was the captain reached the
ground, mounted his horse and started
on a gallop for the camp, five miles dis
tant. In a moment the Apaches broke cover
and pursued. They chased him nearly
to the camp, but he reached it in safety,
the egg still in his mouth. It was un
broken. Owing to its large size the cap
tain had difficulty in removing it from
his mouth without injuring it. His jaws
ached for some time afterward. Youth's
Tlie New and the lteautifuL,
"That is the most peculiar and as
tounding faculty of the mind that calls
the new, the beautiful," said Charles
Truax. "Now, just think a minute.
Look at the change in fashions, and then
you see it perfectly. The hat that you
wore last season the one with the stiff
rim and soft crown how nice and nobby
it looked thent Now, when you tried it
on again the other day, accidentally run
ning across it in the locker, why, it
looked hideous, didn't it? It's impossi
ble to define why this is so. You can't
say it is because the mind dislikes old
things (some minds don't) nor that all
minds love the new, the change. It isnt
exactly because persons dislike to be odd
or out of date, for some take great de
light in looking strange and odd.
"Others do not wear the new things
first simply to be the first. While I do
not think this sense comes from or guides
itself by any one of these influences, j et
the sum of them all goes to make up a
circle of harmony inside of which one
would rather dwell tlian out There are
a thousand little things that the mind
comprehends almost unconsciously and
acts accordingly. It is this reflex action
of brain work that makes it possible for
one to understand why 'we do these
things." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

A 1'aradox Explained.
Why does not a man weigh a pound
more immediately after eating a pound
weight of food? A little reflection will
readily explain this apparent mystery.
During the process of mastication, de
glutition, etc.. certain muscles are
brought into active play, and the exer
cise of auj muscle necessitates a tempo
rary waste of its tissues, and a certain
amount of carbon is eliminated and
passed off during the course of the meal.
This loss, however, is trifling as com
pared with that due to respiration and
perspiration, loth of which are increased
during the various operations of making
The length of time one may take to
consume a pound of food makes but lit
tle difference to those losses, for if it is
eaten leisurely there is but slight in
crease of respiration or perspiration,
whereas if it is hurried through both are
abnormally accelerated. Hence by the
time the pound is eaten the consumer
has lost appreciably in moisture and car
bonic acid. Million.
The olution of Names.
The evolution of names from foreign
tongues into English is in many cases
easy. From the German Bauer to the
English Bowers, and from the French
Boulanger to the English Bullinger is
but a step, as it were. But there are no
Iieoplo who are of tcner more humorously
accused of altering their names than, tho
Irish. Thus, Crehan has become Rohan;
Carroll, Karl; Dillon, Dyllyn; Divver,
Devere and Devyr; McCarty, Macartee
and Makart; Slattery, Slater and Satter
lee; O'Brien, Obrion and Breen; ilcGin

yea; Duffy, Dufay; McGufiin, Magoffin;
Quinn, Queen; Fogarty, Fougert; Hag
gerty, Haggart; Sully, Soule. The Eng
lish singer, Braham, merely dropped a
letter when he went on the stage. He
was a Hebrew, and his real name was
Abraham. Chicago Herald.
The Expansion of Solid liodies.
An ingenious instrument for measur
ing the expansion of minute 6olid bodies
is found in the list of inventions. The
substance is placed in the field of a mi
croscope and an image of it magnified
several times is thrown on a screen.
This image is further magnified by two
micrometer microscopes which accur
ately determine the expansion. The
Bubstanceis heated in a little platinum
oven through which an electric current
passes, and the temperature of the oven
is arrived at by observations on the
melting of standard substances. By the
use of this instrument the thermal ex
pansion of any substance even to the
smallest diamond can be determined un
til the temperature of combustion is

Duplicate Whist For Lent.
Duplicate whist is a fashionable Lent
en recreation. Club.? are organized with
patronesses like the dancing and sewing
classes. These clubs are not large as a
rule, 20 members leing a good number,
but they are very jolly, many of them
meeting in tho mornings. There are
mixed clubs for evening play of the (for
tho moment) fascinating phase of the fa
mous game. For the benefit of those
who may not yet have been initiated in
its mysteries it may be explained that
this form of whist differs from tho usual
game only in its manner of deciding tho
winner. Every quartet is provided with
stiff, black pastr'noards. about 10 inches
square, on which re fitted four rubber
As a hand is played it is retained and
slipped under 1 lie band in front of tho
plavcr. Then the board i.i laid aside and
another is taken until the number of
boards provided, which may be from six
to a dozen or even more, is exhausted.
Then the same sets of players begin
again with their first loard, playing the
hands first pluMxl by their opponents,
the scoring pair leing that which makes
the most from the same hand. It is a
pretty and interesting variation of tho
plai game, and the blackboards litter
many an uptown drawing room during
the penitential mornings. New York
"Ixve Your Neighbor as Yourself.
The recent effort of some conspicuously
pious men to seize for their own coun
try's benefit a country which belongs to
another race points the moral of Herbert
Spencer's assertion that what men be
lieve they believe is very different from
what they really do believe. The actions
of Americans in regard to Hawaii ren
der these words of Spencer peculiarly
interesting: "A society in which the
most exalted principles of self sacrifice
for the benefit of neighbors are enunci
ated may be a society in which unscru
pulous sacrifice of alien fellow creatures
is not only tolerated, but applauded.
Along with professed anxiety to spread
these exalted principles among heathens
there may go tho delilxTato fastening of
a quarrel upon them wilh a view to an
nexing their territf .:. Mm who every

White Lead is best ; properly applied
it will not scale, chip, chalk, or rub
off; it firmly adheres to the wood and
forms a permanent base for repainting.
Paints which peel or scale have to be
removed by scraping or burning before
satisfactory repainting can be done.
When buying it is important to obtain
properly made. Time has proven that
white lead made by the " Old Dutch "
process of slow ccrrosion possesses
qualities that cannot be obtained by
any other method of manufacture. This
process consumes four to six months
time, and produces the brands that
have given White Lead its character
as the standard paint.
" Southern" " Red Seal "
are standard brands of strictly pure
