Usaall Animals Often Travel es the
Baelve of Lar'e Onee.
It has often been P.rked how small
and weak birds manage to fly such
enormous distances when migrating.
As a rule, however, small birds that
have come vetry far across the sea
have not flown, but have been blown
over during violent gales, and many of.
them arrive on land In- a half dead
Ia fair weather small birds make
long journeys successfully over con
elderable tracts of ocean, but the rea
son is that they are carried on the
backs of the larger ones. When pass-'
ing an autumn in Crete a writer as
serts that he distinctly heard the twit.
tering of small birds when. flocks of
sand cranes were passing overhead on
their way to southera p
other occasion .iIms
t.es. - On an
lg0e'd rwhen xring a gun, he
iee small birds rise from the
. -6ck and disappear again among the
cranes. A native priest assured him
that they came over from E~urope
with them, while it has been found
that small birds, never before seen in
certain parts, have been brought thith
er at times of migration.
Another cause is that small birds do
set make their journeys in one flight.
T&hey generally rest during the day,
searching for food, anid thus proceed
t'o their destination by easy stages.
THE PEARL WORKERS.
A Detlilehemi Industry Which I. Five
llundred1 Year. Old.
The chief industry of Beothlehem of
Judaea Is that of the mother-of-pearl
The shells are brought from the Rled
sea and In the hands of native artisans
are polished and carved, the larger into
elaborate designs. The smaller are cut
up for rosaries and crosses. The work
is all done by hand, and the methods
are amazingly primitive to a spectator
from the home of steam and electric
power. But the results are extraordi
nary. The largest shell we saw was
carved In scenes from the birth of
Christ, the agony in the garden and
the crucifixion, and had the general ef
feet of delicate .frostwork. Under the
magnifying glass every detail was seen
to be perfect in outline and in finish.
it was exucuted to order for a wealthy
'American and was to cost $160.
About 150 people make a living by
this industry, which is 500 years old.
in the shops the workmen sit upon the
floor, their benches in front of them.
The air is full of whitish dust, and the
- light admitted by the single window
and the open door is so dim that the
ezquisite tracery of the wrought shells
is a mystery even before the visitor

THE CALM BAD MAN.
He 10 More Dana-erous Than the One
The bad man of genuine sort rarely
looked the part assigned to him in the
popular imagination. The long haired
blusterer, adorned with a dialect that
never was spoken, serves very well in
eastern fiction about the west, but that
is not the real thing. The most duger
ous man was apt to be quiet and
smooth spoken. When an antagonist
blustered and threatened, the most
dangerous bad man only felt rising in
his own soul, keen and stern, that
strange exultation which often comes
with combat for the man naturally
brave. A western officer of established
reputation once said to me while spmapa

anything of that sort for years, and I
wished I was out of it. Then I said to
myself, 'Is it true that you are getting
old and have lost your nerve?' Then
all at once the old feeling came over
me, and I was just like I used to be. I
felt calim and happy, and I laughed a:ft
or that. I ferked my gun and shoved
it into his stomach. He put up his
hands and apologised. 'I will give you
a hundred dlollars now,' he said, 'if
you will tell me where you got that
gun.' I suppose I was a trifle quick
for him."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
HAIR AND BEARDS.
Ther Have Played aIportant Parts
In the world's Ifistory.
In centuries past the human hair
played an important part in all judieial
proceedings. Those that were permit
ted to wear beard and hair had rights
that could not be claimed by the shorn
and shaved. When men made oath
they touched their beard and hair, and
women placed the finger tips of the
right hand on their tresses.
Servants were obliged to have their
hair cut, and if a freedman went into]
slavery he had to divest~ himself of his
hirsute adornments. An adult adopted
by foster parents was obliged to have
his beard shaved, and the shaving or
beard and hair was a punishment In
dlicted on criminais.*The jurisprudence
of our ancestors dealt with p~unishment
"by skin and hair" Yfor small ofrenses
and "by neck and 'hand" for greater
There has always been more or less
superstition about haIr. Great strength
was implied by it, and wvizards and
witches knew of concoctions of hair by
which they poisoned enemies. Cat's
hair was especially named in the cate
gory of poisonous'hairs, and even at
the beginning of the seventeenth cen
tury, Paulus Zacchias, a famous phyal
clan; writes of the virulent poison of
the hair of cats, .a
Among civilized people such superstei
tious beliefs have gene out of existence,
and only Malaya give their enemies

SNAKES OF -ARAWAK.
Che Pythons Are Enormou, and Feed
on Pigs and Children.
In the Sarawak Gazette is an article
on the snakes of thait pairt of Borneo.
Of the p)oisonous reptiles It says: "The
cobra (Naja tripudlans) Is a black
snake which raises Its head to strike
when irritated, at the same time ex
panding the hood at either elde of the
neck. It spits at intruders and hisses
like a cat, whence it Is knowni asi
"ular tedonig puss;" ini some parts,. too,
as "todonig miaita hart." The word '"te
dong" in Sarawak is apparently ap
plied to all large snakes which Malaysj
consider to be poisonous1, and, as our
Malays are but til actiuainted with
these animals, quite a number of large
but harmiless forms are diesignated1 by
this term. The lhamadryad (Naja bun
garus) is a brown snake, considerably
bigger but rarer than the cobra. It is
rather shy, but when cornered, like
the cobra, It raises its head and ex
pands the hood before striking. Its
food is chiefly other snakes.
"Less dlangerous than these najas
are the vipers, of which the' most
common species is the green viper,
which reaches a length of two feet or
more. Tfhe head Is large and shaped
like an ace of spades. This creature Is
a tree snake and very sluggish. Th~e
'bungarus' are of several species, one,
Bungarus fasciatus, of lenigth up to
four feet, being black with yellow
rings. It Is called the 'iular bukcu tebu'
(sugar cane joints) by natives. There
are also sea snakes of many species.
The tail of a sea snake is flattened
Sarawvak has other snakes: "Of the
pythons there are two species. Py
then reticulatujs grows to an enor
alous size, over twenty feet. -'It is'
very fond of pigs, but varies its diet
by various animals, Including even
thiidren. The oil of this snake Is used
by Malays as an emnbrocationi for
bruises. The o'ther species of python,
[Python curtus, is interestIng In that'
Its flesh tastes like that of fowl-at
least, so Dyaks say, and thmey are au
thoritles on snake flesh, for they eat
a number of the large snakes."

iOf the youthful hardships endured

The Flying Linard of Java.
The curious little animals known as
flying. lizards (Draco vola-ns) are only
found in~ Java, and their strange ap
pearance is supposed to have been the
origin of the dragon of the medlaeval
eastern imagination. The reptile is like
an ordinary lizard, but is provided with
folds eof extensible skin which are
spread out by the long ribs and enable
the animal to glide through the air from
tree to tree in pursuit of the insects on
which It preys. When lying prone on
the mottled surface of a bough, It is
an excellent exmulel or "protective re
semblance," as It is most diffcult to be
seen unless It moves.

A story Is told of the Sudan rail

from an outlying station: "Station
master has 'died. Shall I bury him?"
The reply was sent: "Yes; bury sta
tion master, but please make sure he
is really dead before you do so." In
due tinie back came the message:
"Have buried station master. Made
pure he was dead by hitting. him twice
on the head with a fish plate." There
was perfect assurance, that there had
been no premature burial.
