A DOQ OF UTILITY.
The Pointer'* Evolution Prom (he
Tho evolution of the pointer from
what may be described ns the blood
hound type to the modern English
foxhound kind- bus taken, perhups,
close on 1?0 years. He is essentially,
above all others, a dog of utility, and
as the pointer has ahvuys been looked
upon ns oun of the chief helpmates of
tho man who loves to tuke his pleusure
behind a well broken brace of dogs, a
pntr of barrels and straight powder, it
stands to reason that thut man has
called In all his ingenuity and all his
knowledge of breeding to provide bun
self with a sporting dog that is best
adapted for the sport that is provided
for him. Therefore in soiuo plnccs in
America, where the plnlns are so vest,
a very fast nnd wide ranging polutcr
Is required?one, too, with "bird sense."
Where true ranging, n good noso nnd
stauchuess on game are to be found
embodied In one slnglo dog, there, per
haps, bavo we found the perfect nnl
mal, nnd a retrieving pointer at that.
As In other breeds of dogs, there nro
all sl/.es and sorts of pointers. Tho
short headed, cloddy shouldered nnd
often weak thlghed and cow hocked
pointer has gone by the board. It
stands to reason thut, although the
cart horse can gallop, ho cannot gallop
with the thoroughbred, the clean neck
ed, oblique shouldered, deep hammed,
live racing machine. Half a day of
renl going will knock up tho heavy
headed, loose throated pointer. He has
bad to give way to tho more elegant
quantity; but even such ns ho should
not be loo small.?Illustrated Sporting
I The leaves of a green plant arc chief
ly useful as feeding organs, which util
ize sunlight In building up plant sub
stance from water, carbonic acid gas
and simple salts. Deciduous forms and
evergreens have been evolved on dif
ferent Hues us regards foliage.
On tho approach of r.utumn the for
mer withdraw all nutritious substances
into their trunks nnd branches. A layer
of cork Is then developed across tho
base of each leaf, which afterward
falls off, leaving a neatly covered scar,
which excludes air and germs.
These changes do not take placo in
evergreens, for these possess tough,
leathery leaves capable of resisting
frost, which ore shed gradually all tho
year round as they become old and ef
fete. Such plants uso sunlight year
out, year in, while deciduous trees and
shrubs do during tho warm Beason
only, though they work very vigorous
ly In summer, getting rendy tho buds
which open the next spring nnd stor
ing up starch and the like to servo as
food till the new leaves nro unfolded
and ready for work.
On the Wrong- Tack.
A young man In New York was deep
ly Impressed with the beauties of Free
masonry and after considerable effort,
mental and otherwise, had fitted .him
self for the ceremony of initiation into
tho order. He had heard of tho "goat"
and the "gridiron" and many other
things connected with the first degree
nnd was prepared to bo surprised at
nothing. In the course of his first even
ing nt the lodge he stepped on a tack,
which stuck Into his foot and gave him
considerable pnln. Ho Bald nothing
and made no effort to remove It, pain
ful though It was. Two hours later,
when It seemed to him that there was
nothing more to come In the way of
initiation, be asked it he might take
the tack out of Ills foot. His sufferings
were not ameliorated when he was
told that tho tack had nothing to do
with tho ceremonies.?New York Tost.

John Morley in his life of Gladstone
tells tho story of tho statesman's ex

tho candidate on some point of the
ology, sold, "We will now leave that
part of the subject." "No, sir," replied
the candidate; "If you please, wo will
not lenve It yet," nnd proceeded to pour
forth n fresh stream. The dean In Mr.
Ulndstone's dny was Qalsford, famous
among other things for his trenchant
brevity. "This laconic gift," observes
Mr. Morley slyly? "tho dean evidently

The original fire engine, the first ma

hose Is attached to tho top. A clumsy
lever placed at the back of the car sots

SPEAKING OF SANTA CLAUS
Reminds me that it would be a wise
move on your part to guarantee that he will visit your
little ones until they are grown. It you should suddenly
receive a call to make a trip to that land from whence no
traveler returns, have you arranged with old Santa Claus
to continue his trips to your loved ones? If you haven't
it is high time you were doing so. It would be an ex
cellent idea for you to drop into your wife's Christmas
stocking a policy issued by the State Life Insurance
Company. This would be a good present for her now
and would guarantee future visits from ?Santa Claus.
Never thought of it in that light before, eh? You can
get all the particulars by mail if you will ask for them.
