BATS, BEES AND WO3XEN PHY
Will1am Wishes He Were a Naturalist
Gen. Young's Crazy Quilt.
Laat night whih we were all quietly reading
my wife looked np and remarked: "There is a
bat in the room." A long timie ago she used
to ju:np up with alacrity and go into another
room and wait 'till I got the littl- varmint out,
but anno domini takes the seate out of a wo
man as well as a man, a':d so now she keeps her
seat. The girls said. "rake the lamp into the
hall and it will go out," but it wouldn't. My
wife said, 'you had better get the broom and
knock it down, but don't you knock it this
way." I notic-ed that -he had put The Sunny
South on her head sadde fashion, and the girls
had covered up all bur th-Ar eyes. Carefully
I mounted a chair and began to sweep for the
little creature as it s'immed around, but it
takes a long time and I lost my perpendicular
a veral times. ' The bat is the missmg link,"
said I as I gave another stroke. "Seems to be,"
aid my wife. "You miss it every time." "It
Is not an amphiblous animl," said I "but very
ambignous.' eaid she. ''It I chiropterous and
esertilto." said I as I made another lunge
and the chaircareenied and let me down eay.
Pausing a while to get breath, I remarked that
those big words of Linneus meant having handh
and fingers and coming out a! twilight. "Well.
do please get the thing out of here-and
you can tell us about it afterwards," said my
ife. The n'*xt effort was an accidential
snccess. The bat was knocked down and
swept cut. Then I got the cyclopedia and dis
covered from it how the bat wsa a bird that laid
no egg-. 1-"t gave birth toitsyoung andsuckled
them-how it had hands and feet and fingers
ad toes and even finger nails and toe nails
now it had teeth, canines and molars; how it
was not blind but had little tiny eyes bid in
he hair, (-Yes that cannot bear the light an 1
re entirely clcsed when flying around a lighted
room. 4 uvier experimenred with them andt
ut their eyes out and they could still fly around
nnd never tou -h a wall or a cei-ing. I-l said
it was oning to their exqui'ite sense of touch
and of smell and hearing. The ancients said
the bat had a sixi sense 1-y which they could
avoid collision with walls awl so forth, but Cu
vier did not think so. They are a very ancient
little animal and I reclon ba1 a place some
where in Noah's ark, bat we don't know whether
e put them with the birds or the bags. Moses
declared them unclean and clas ed them with
,,.Is and vultures. It seems to as that it is a
;or, niserable life they live, but I reckon they
joy it, especially when they come in the
house and alarm the women aird children.
They have a unique and lonely -lace in crea
tion, there being tut two or three kinds, and
they never cross or mix and have n- society.
They have the miniature hands and feet of hu
man beings, the :e th of a dog and wings to fly
like a bird. Even Darwin could not tell whether
,heyevoluted backward or forward.
I wish t hat I w.as a naturalist. It is an ever
lring mysterv to study these little creatureq
all around us. How a fly can so swiftly glide
pon the window p:ae, what language the ants
us.e as theylass and repasi ore another as they
go and come from their hidden nests. I wa'ch
hem on the poks in the trell:s and they never
fail to pause for an instant and say something
and quickly pass in. SIay be ;t is "Howdy,"
or "Are all well?" or "I am glad to see you
: ive my love to the children." That they say
omething there is no dounbt. Then there are
the lightning buns that would bi a great won
hr if thev were not so common. Did yonever
observe tiat they nevr lighten except to rise
hher in the aii? They make no descending
light. and so it is evi-l' at that the light they
make is not to see by. but to propel them up
wards. It is an el- etric power-a force without
hea-anad our scienat s s miightt study it and
:nalyze the wonderful lit tie chemical machine
that lies hidelen in its tail. IL. is a power as
well as a light'. My friend Bussey, the bee
man of Matrietis, says ho tried diligiently to
crss lightaning hugs wi'h his bees so that the
cross could see how to work in the dark, but
he failed. I haive great respect for Linnens
and Cn-vier and Audobon an-l Agassiz, who
hve left us such a tressury of knowedg-: that
hey gathered from n 'ture. It does seem that
nrovidence rse< uap such men with a kind
inrpose and gives them a key to unlock
ils statehouse. Every once in a great
while a greaet mran comes up to mm
ster to our plea'-nre, our learn-ng or
ur comfort. Thus knowledge be
comes difinsed and the world becomes
wiser and' hbett'r. If m-: is the best finder
woman is te best diffuser' of knowledge. I
tonemp'ate I them yesterday as they worked
n a er:-zy gilt at. my house. A goa-l lady,
who is alway s at work for the church, or the
,cor, or the heathetn. brought over the patch
xerk of a quilt to b'- made up. She got her
manyu frien-is to make each a square and yes
erday it was a 1 stitched together and em

a crazy qutilt can be, for tla'ey are the most
distratedt tings ina the woald and' nobody but
e azy people admire then. General Young
liked t o have tak'n a1 fit over this onie before it
was put together, and he has bought it for .225

o a hack at.t will make an official spread of
it on ihis couch of --tate. rethaps Ihe may: wear

says the effieer of the law, dropping a

Darius in the early dis' of morning not
waiting for ;ootmen or chariot, hastening to
the den, all flushed and nervous and in dis
habille, and looking through the erevices of
the cage to see what had become of his prime
minister. "What, no sound!" ho says.
"Daniel Is surely devoured, and the lions are
sleeping after their horrid. meal. the bones
of the poor man scattered across the floor ,f
the cavern." With trembling voice Darius
calls out: "Daniel?" No answer, for the
prophet is yet in profound slumber. But a
lion more easily swake'ned, advances, antd
with hot breath blown through the er-vice
seems angrily to demand the eause of this
interruption, and then another wild beast
lifts his mane from under Daniel-s hoad, and
the proplhet, wakiw'- up. eom-s forth to re
port himself all unhurt an- well.
But our text siands us at Damiel's window,
opened towardl Jerusalem. Why in that di
rection open? Jerusalem was his native
land, and all the p-om pof his Babyluish suc
cesses eiuld not make him forget it. He
came there from Jerusalem at eighteen years
of age, and he never visited it, though he
lived to be eighty-flve years. Yet when he
wanted t- arouse the deepest emotions and
grandest aspirations of his heart he had his
window open toward his native Jerusalem.

But it is another Jerusalem toward whic
we now need to opn our windows. The exile
evangelist of Ephesus saw it one day as th
the surf of the Icarian Sea foamed an
splashed over th'e boulders at his feet, an
his vision reminded me of a wedding da
when the bride by sister and maid was ha'

strung for her neck just before she puts h(
betrothed hand into the hand of h<
affianced. "I, John. saw the holy city. Ne
Jerusalem, coming down from Goid out<
heaven prepared as a bride adorned for hi
husband." Toward that bridal Jerusale:
are our windows opened?
We would do well to think more of heave:
It Is not a mere annex of earth. It is not
desolate outpost. As Jerusalem was the cal
ital of Judiea, and Babylon the capital of th
Babylonian monarchy, and London Is th
capital of Great Britain, and Washington
the capital.- of our own R~epublic, the Ne
Jerusalem is the capital of the universe. Tl
King lives there, and the royal family of tl

Many years ago the Turcs :ind Christians
were in battle. and th! Christiaas were de

I not enter here except as conqueror."
Then Stephen rallied his forces and re
s aumed the battle and gained the day,
