BEAUTIFUL BIRD IS AMERICAN. I
Wood Warblers Found on No Other
Continent but This.
So small that the casual glance fro
fluently does not reveal their presence,
the greo family oC wood warblers Is
almoat without exception the moat
brilliantly and striking colored of our
American bird Rioups. The lover of
the beauties of nature will be well
repaid by careful scrutiny of the little
jewel-like creatures, either with Held
glasses or the naked eye, for there are
none of them unreasonably timid, and
patience will rev rial marvels in the
way of artistic color combinations.
The wood warbler family Is distinct
ly American. On no other contineut
in the world is it represented. Somo

sixty species are included in its classi
fication. Kor the most part the birda
are of ridiculously inadequate propor
lions to combat with the dangers of.
the long biannual journey which they
make in the effort to obtain the in
sect food upon which they subsist.
Uninformed persons often confuse
them with humming birds and wrens.
They nre inconspicuous in i heir move
ments, keeping always in the shelter
of the leaves of trees or shrubbery.

among them the palm warbler, they

Early Egyptians in France.
There has just been laid before the
French Academy of Sciences a well
authenticated case of prehistoric Egyp
tian remains found among the prehis
toric remains of ancient CJnul. The
connection between Gaul and Egyp
was established in this way:
A card of cut Hints of the Neolithic
period was obtained from Egypt, and
a card of exactly similar Hints found
on Moil island, nine miles from Mar
seilles, was shown with them.
At tho spot on the island where
these flints wore excavated there were
found lying nearest tho surface some
Koman pottery; below that Greek pot
tery, with Llgurlan and Egyptian still
lower, and below these again masses
of marine shells, pottery and Hints
different from any yet found.
The remains found go back for at
IpihL 5, OltO years. London Globe.
Ubeful Ideas of Two Women.
The idea of the reaper was suggest
ed by a Virginia lady who, in au
emergency, tied together two pairs of
shenr.M and instructed a negro man
how to clip a grass plot. That hum

sively manufactured in America, the
safety pin, was tho suggestion of hor
mijesty Queen Victoria.
ONE REQUISITE FOR SUCCESS.
Press Steadily Onward and Never
Think of Failure. i
A happy minded woman camo from I
(he West to take hor place In the van i
with the girl who works the girl with ;
a purpose an ambition beyond anel- 1
ety. That she was In earnest there
could be no doubt.
She began with stenography; she
took a course in physical culture; she
studied the work of hook cover de- ,
signing; she oven spent a week as a
cloak model; she tried to win success
as an advertising agent. In nothing ,
could she achieve any success. Yet
she worked hard and was encouraged
and aided by friends. Hut she failed
to keep on at any of the many ,
branches she adopted, says Success.
It is not. always possible to see the
stars beckoning us. A philosophic
woman has written, we must dig to
llnd our star, lint we must keep on
blindly, sometimes through the dark
ness, with nothing but tho keeping
on itself in view. Worry not over en
vironment or lack of the Immediate
success that may be our due. Was-e
not time over small regrets or fail
ins or small achievements.
These things only prove that you
are alive and in the battle, just as the
singing of a bullet tells a soldier i''"!
he i in the field, lint when tho tiled
time comes to you the girl who
works and you look over untrodden
fields where the daisies may glow al
luringly and the star of success may
perch low enough to reach withom
too much straining, just stick to your
purpose, whatever It may be.

"I wish you would look at this

"I can't see anything wrong," he
said. "What seems to be the trou

7he Chewing Puppy.
What household has not at some
time had a puppy, and what woman
has not been bothered by their chew
ing everything within reach? As soon
as our puppies begin to want to chew
anything we furnish them with a
chewing slick, for (lie same reason
wo give a baby a rubber ring. T.bl-'
.stick is simply a part of a broom han
dle about ten inches in length.
Every time he chows anything else
he is punished and then given tho
slick, and ho soon learns to chew that
and nothing else. Wo had one puppy
who would even whino for it. If it was
whero ho couldn't get it. Chicago
At a certain high school in this city
it is the custom to discuss briefly the
morning's news before tnkng up the
regular work of the day. In this con
nection, an instructor in the school
in question tells of a funny Incident.
One day the teacher ascended to
her desk, paper in hand. Sho spread
tho paper on the desk and glanced at
the head-lines of the first page. -The
first head that I observed this morning."-
said she, "is 'Poolroom Raid

with the utmost feeling in her voice
"Uoya, novoij, never touch a cue!"

A River That Bridges Itself,
''or a stretch of twenty-two miles
the Itiver Colorado in Texas, has
bridged Itself with logs of wood,
which have jammed so tightly from
j one bank to the other that even dyna
t mile is powerless to clear a way. It
was at first only a slight jam of logs,
which three or four men could have
dealt with effectively; but it has
grown at an enormous rate, and, In
some places, has become solid ground,
with vegetation and trees growing
upon it. Roads have been cut
through, ovei which teams cross from
bank to bank as unconcernedly as
though a great river was not rolling
swiftly underneath. The monster raft
has become an object of Interest to
tourists, but tho authorities are talc
I ing steps to break up tho bridge as
j soon as possible. Montreal Herald.
