How the Ostrich Runs. .- Considerable misconception, prevails as to the manner in which the ostrich runs. --It seems to he still generally -held that when running- it spreads out Its , wings, and, aided by them, skims lightly over the ground. This is not correct. When a bird really settles itself to run. It holds its head lower Chan, usual, and a little forward, with a deep loop in the neck. The neck vi torates sinuously, but the head remains steady, thus enabling the bird, even at top speed, to look around with un- . ishaken glance in any direction. The . Wings lie along the sides about on a level with, or a little higher than, the back and are held loosely just free of the plunging "thigh." There Is no at tempt to hold them extended, or to de- Ere any assistance from them as or ins of flight. When an ostrich, after a long run, la jrery tired, Its wings sometimes droop; Ithla Is due to exhaustion; they are never, by a running bird exerting its elf to the utmost, held out away from the sides to lighten its weight or to Increase Its pace. But the wings ap pear to be of great service in turning, enabling the bird to double abruptly irren -when going at top speed. The geologist. , Coonting Postal Cards.

' So Need Now to Catch Them with a Hook and Piece of Red Flannel.

By neans of his levioe one of the most prized of del icacies is cheap in that locality named, ;he edible in question basing frog3' legs. The old method of catching frogs with red flannel on a hook is now quite out Df dato. The young man discovered lhat if a strong lifht is thrown in their eyes lis they it singing on a lily pad or a snag, they will sit still tharmed by the glare, and allow them selves to be seized by the hand of the hunter. His apparatus when he goes trog hunting consists of a tin milk pail with a hole cut in one side and Ihe handle fastened above it. A small lamp is carried in the pail, the chimney projecting through the hole. The bottom of the pail acta as a re Sector, and throws the fatal light in to the frogs' eyes. Nothing more is deeded but a long pair ,of wading boots, a game bag and a skin imper vious to mosquitoes' stings, for it is 1 well-known fact that where bullfrogs flourish there the mosquito is largest ind most venomous.

Though supplied by beautiful springs of clear water, the liquid of the lake is black and of an ink-like char acter. The temperature varies from 110 degrees to 216 degrees; according '.o the locality, and the water feels smooth and oily. According to the In- iians, not only of the vicinity, but far away, the waters of the lake have strong medicinial qualities, though most white people would hesitate to s.dopt the mode ot treatment pre scribed. The Invalid is buried up to ais mouth in the hot volcanic mud for from twenty to thirty minutes. Then tie is carried, covered with mud, to the edge of the lake, into which he is plunged for from fiftscn to twenty min utes, after which he is rolled in a blan ket and allowed to sweat on the hot, sulphurous sand or rock near by.
