English I'ieM Sport.
Tho matter of wiro fencing and the
kindred difficulty of dealing with im
mense fields of horsemen arc so often
thrashed out in the papers devoted to
field sports that it is not necessary to
enter into them here. Masters of hounds
are now willing to pay for taking up
wiro before tho hunting season begins,
and to put it down again in the spring.
The difficulties caused by large fields
will have somehow to be overcome,
either by ceasing to advertise meets or
by making it understood (how. perhaps,
it is not very r::y to say) that those who
come out will have to pay for ificir
sport, an idea which, while it is ou.i
monly iicted upoii 1 y residents, is often
overlooked by :. i'.u-.-s.

Do Ants Talk? I
I ono day saw a drove of tho small i
black ants moving, perhaps to better
quarters. Tho distance was some 150 .
yards. Most all which came from tho
old home carried some of the household
goods. Some had eggs, some had what
may have answered for their bacon or
meat; some had one thing and some an
other. I sat and watched them closely
for over an hour. I noticed that every
timo two met in the way they would
hold their heads close together as if
greeting one another, and no matter
how often the meeting took place this
same thing occurred, as t if- ugh a short
chat were necessary.
To prove more about it, I killed ono
who was on his way. Others being eye
witnesses to tho murder, went with
speed, and with every ut they met this
talking took plaeo as liefore. But in
stead of a pleasant greeting, it was sad
news they had to communicate. I know
it was sad news, for every tint that these
parties met hastily turned back and fled
on another course, as much as to say,
''For tho king's sake and for your safety
do not go there, for I have seen a mon
ster just behind that is able to destroy
us all at ono blow. I saw him kill ono
of our family. I do not know how many
more are killed." So tho news spread,
and it was true. How was tho news
communicated if not by speech. Maga
