fowls are fed, a light little door about

Farmer. It Is stopped from swinging

LOCAL PRIDE IS HER MANIA
Woman From Iceland Even Asserts
Fishermen There Bait Their Hooks
Local pride becomes easily a matter
of mania and the further and more
primitive the locality the greater tho
pride. A woman from Iceland, tho
wife of a well-known Icelandic schol
ar, was spending tho winter In New
York. Local pride gave her no rest.
She held that day lost In which she
had not pointed out to some one some
thing that was l>ettor done In Iceland
than in the States. One evening while
she whs dining with a friend the con
versation turned upon the work of
tho 8. P. C. A.
"In Iceland," said the victim of
local pride, "we have no need of hu
manitarian societies. Cruelty is un
known among us. We are naturally
a race of humanitarians."
"You are also great fishermen, aro
you not?" Inquired a second guest
"Oh, certainly," she cried. "Great
fishermen! You have no such export
fishermen In the Kta'
"But what a cruel sport fo?* an Island
full of humanitarians!" cried tho sec
"No, Indeed!' explained the devoted
creature without winking. "No, In
deed. In Iceland our fishermen nil
halt their hook with anesthetics."?

WHY THE BLUEBIRD IS BLUE
Pretty Legend of Her Sympathy for
Christ as He Hung Upon
The friendship hetwcen tho rohln
and fho bluebird Is accounted for In
nn old legend, says the Ave Maria.
"When the rohln. filled with pity
for his suffering Lord, bore him drops
of water as ho hung upon the cross
a little brown bird thought:
"'Oh, I too love him! Why can I
not do something to enso his pain?'
"80 she made a cup out of a leaf
and, filling !t with water, met the
robin and gave It to him bo that ho
would not have to fly so for as he
returned for more of Uie cooling
, liquid. And when at last he came
' with news that his Lord was dead
she bathed his bleeding breast that
I was wounded by tho cruel thorns.
"Then the mnster of birds said to
tho little brown hlrd: 'llocause you
loved tl < Lord and would have helped
him you shall henceforth wear a coat
tho color of tho one his mother wears.'
"And that Is why this llttlo brown
hlrd has ever since then been a llttlo
blue bird and Is never far away from
the robin when he comes In tho spring.
This will be something to think of
when a bit of blue files hetween you
and the sun and you know our lady's
hlrd has come."
