A copy of this complete work today is worth a small fortune, (in his return to America Audubon labored on tin illu.stratpd work, "The Quadrupeds of Air.e'.lca." Audubon never instituted any movement for the preservation of birds, for in bis day lunch of the country was wild, and it looked as though there were no danger of birds ever becoming extinct. It was his, genuine love for the feath ered folk that caused the Audubon society to be named for him. The Audubon society has done much to prevent wunton destruction and to create a sentiment against the wear ing of birds and feathers on millinery. It Is largely due to Audubon societies throughout the country that large tracts of ground have been set upart as bird reservations. The national of fice of the organization is In New York city.

Vicitor to Monegl'an Yourt Has Mary In-.portant Rules of Conduct to Remember. A Mongolian joint Is an umbrellu- like framework of trelliswood cov ered with thick felt which when new Is perfectly white, circular In form, having a dome-sliiiped roof, and is about 14 to 18 feet in diameter, tlie door alwr.ys , facing south or south west, and painted red. On arriving at a yourt on a Mongolian pony it Is very necessary to remember that your riding whip must be left outside, laid on the roof, before you enter. To take It, or any kind of stick, into the house would not be regarded as a simple breach of manners, such as taking your umbrella into the drawing room when paying a call in this country, but amounts to an act of aggression. As one enters the yourt one cannot help noticing that the floor is covered with semicircular mats of very thick white felt with bold applique designs In black, as a border. In the center of the building an iron casket contains burning argol that Humes brightly and sends up ascending smoke that es capes through 11 circular hole In the roof. One must be careful to select one of the lowly seats on the ground on the left of the lire till the Invita tion is given to - "come up higher," which of course, will follow.

There Is, in fact, an altogeth er unexpected und rich field of strange learning to he acquired In this direc tion by one who has the will to It. How, for Instance, did the odd expres sion "namby-pamby" arise, to indicate some one of a mild and jejune nature, n milksop? The original Namby l'am by.was'a mild anil well-meaning po etaster, Ambrose Phillips, who flour ished in the Eighteenth century, mid was the hutt of the critics of that age. l'ope satirized him, and we find Carey dr. j. t HOSEY writing, "Nurses got by heart Niiniby j EyE EAR N0SE AND THROAT, I'umby's little rhymes."

On her wedding day the Chinese Bride Is clud In red and carried In a sedan chair covered witb red. Any person who wishes may tarn back the chair curtliins and have a look at the bride. Hayseed takes the pluce of rice and confetti. The bride's hnlr is elaborately oiled, und so when the girls throw hayseeds at her they stick. When she has readied the end of her journey she has come to the home of her husband and mdst bear the cnmli'l criticism of tlie whole fam ily.' The wedding ceremony Is nothing more than a rice affair. Instead of throwing It, the guests eat it The linslutnil-and-wife-to-he eat rice from each other's bowl, then mix the rice and both ent from the same bowl and they are married. Of course there Is a feast, but tlie custom makes it such that the American father of a rexvption-gSviug brdo -might envy the Chinese father of the bride. Every . guest rontributes something, and so It costs very little. PAGE 7 Dry Rot. The term dry rot IsvComiuouly used to describe a condition of decay in iVcxmL Probably nine out of ten per sons who use tlie term have no real lilmwieilge of Its significance. In the first place, where there Is decay, the;-e must be'inolsture. This type of decn is really the work of a certain fungus, it Is true that where this fungus gros llie decaying timber appears to lie without moisture. The fungus, how oer, will not germiiuUe unless the .vood is moist, but from then on it is able to travel In dry wood. It draws its moisture through a conduit system of slender, minutely porous strands. It Is a curious fact, says Science Sitt ings, that wood kept siilliclently wet "annot rot. v LAKE COMO NEWS.
