A Warrior and Tlla Book.
Real book lovers are likely to own
few books that they especially treas
ure. If these be bouud worthily in
handsome leather, it is not being too
fussy to make a little chamois case or
light box for each one to protect it
from the chance knocks and scratcues
•that mar the beauty of the leather. It is
true that the best binding is one that,
like the old white vellum, is durable,
cleanable, attractive and serviceable
but not all bindings can be left unpro
tected, and if Alexander the Great be
lieved nothing better worthy of a place

Birdn Construct Prisons*
Among the hornbills of Southern Asia
the Malayan Island and Central and
Southern Africa most of the species
have a curious habit of hatching their
young in the walled-up hollow of the
tree chosen for the nest, says the Sei
entitle American. The birds have im
mense bills and horny crests.
The mother bird Is walled up by her
mate and remains imprisoned until the
eggs are hatched, and in some species
until the youngs birds are able to fly.
Meanwhile the mother has become tem
porarily Incapable of flight, as she has
moulted, or at least shed all her wing
feathers during her captivity. But the
male is indefatigable in providing for
his family, and is said to work so hard
that he is reduced almost to a skeleton
at the end of the brooding season.
According to the theory of many na
tives the female is imprisoned to pre
vent her neglecting, her duty of brood
ing, and if she has been unfaithful or
negligent her mate closes the little
window of her cell and abandons her
to a painful death by suffocation.
The true story, perhaps, is this: The
female walls herself in so that she can
not fall from the nest after losing her
.feathers, and also to protect herself
from enemies. This version is less
poetical than the other, but it Is prob
ably nearer the truth. It Is supported
by statement that the female liberates
herself as soon as the young birds are

from the throne his majesty outlined
the plan of tne ministerial campaign

"Recent experience has disclosed se

two branches of the legislature. Pro
posals will be laid before you with all

The suit of D. EL Brooks, of Illinois,
to prevent the disposal of land which
he deeded in connection with the pur
chase of $75,000 of bonds issued by
the Rusliville Gas, Heat and Water
Company, has developed some sensa
tional facts in respect to that corpora
tion. It has been found that the total
holdings of the company are worth not
to exceed $720, yet
the plant of this
alleged value it issued $200,000 of
bonds and sold $75,000 of the issue to
Brooks, taking in exchange real estate
in Chicago and some farm lands in
Illinois. The corporation was formed
with Owen L. Carr as president and
Fred Carroll and John and Henry Wal
ters as directors. Bonds were issued
and a mortgage covering the $720 gas
plant in favor of the Farmers' Bank of
Rushville for $100,000 was made. The
Farmers' Bank became merely the pay
er of the interest. Brooks bought
$75,000 of these bonds on the supposi
tion that the bank was the trustee.
He now wants the court to prevent the
sale of the property he traded.

had not Referee Smith called a halt
and awarded the fight and title to Wol

Dane was in a pitiable condition. On«
of his eyes were completely closed and
the other parts of his face were swol

tottering around the ring too weak to
hold up his hands. This was the first
time that Nelson, since he sprang into
the limelight in 1903 by beating Geot
Menisic in Milwaukee, was beaten to a
standstill at his own game of slugging.
He mot his master at the identical
style which won him the lightweight
championship of the world and also
made him famous.
Wolgast's victory was complete and
decisive. Had Referee Smith not stop
ped the contest and it had gone the
limit he would have been given th«
verdict. He had the better of nearly
every round and during the course ol
the forty rounds struck probably fiv«
