A Washington driver savs that there Is an old gray hill horse there that some times cannot get back to lus accustomed place at the foot of the hill in time for the next car. This horse has nothing to do with the bine line, and knows the difference between the blue and the brown cars. If he is on his wav back to the starting point and sees a brown car coming, this shrewd animal will torn around and stand alongside the track waiting for the oar to reach him j Ko amount of coaxing can induce him to move, but after the car reaches bun j he will ‘'pull like a major” until he reaches the top. Then he returns to his post, and when he again sees his car coming rams and gets into position. A day or two ago the hill 1> -v. instead of walking back wi:h the horse or rid ing him. as was his usual custom, jumped on a car and rode down.

I)o Men Like Prison Life? I think, said a detective the other day, there runs* be a fascination about life in jail, for certain men who have j been in there for a little while seem to leave it with regret, and do not lose their interest in what g-:*es on in prison for seme time after they are released. Ag-sin and again 1 have noticed men who have been confined for a few months come back every day after their release and stand ax the door, looking in. They had no friends in there, unless they made friends among the other prisoners, and they did not speak or wish to speak to any one. They leaned against the grated door and looked in. -as if they wanted to come back. 1 really think some of them become attached to the life, and one reason is that unless they are men cf gentle feel ings they do not feel the shame of their position as long as they are inside, but when they come out and meet other men they know they have the jail stum on them, and they imagine ev -ry cue -ees it. I have often watched them star ling there by the door, and wondered what feeling it was that drew theta back.— London Tit-Bits. Art N<>t*. Artist —The public makes me sick.

In Ltmiholtz's “Among Cannibals’* a playground of the bower bird is de scribed. He says: On the top of the mountain I heard in the dense scrubs the loud and unceas ing voice of a bird. I carefully ap proached it. sat on the ground and shot it. It was <ne of the bower birds, with a gray and very modest plumage and of the size of a thrush. As I picked up the bird my attention was drawn to a fresh covering c f green leaves on the black soil. This was the bird’s place of amuse ment. which Wneath The dense scrul*s formed a square about a yard each way. the ground having been cleared of leaves and rubbish. On this neatly cleared spot the bird had laid large, fresh It-aves. one by the side of the other, with considerable reg ularity, and close by he sat singing, ap parently extremely happy over his work. As soon as the leaves decay they are replaced by new ones. On this ex cursion I saw three such places of amusement all near each other and all had fresh leaves from the same kind of trees, while a large heap of dry, with ered leaves was lying close by. It seems that the bird scrapes away the mold every time it changes the leaves, so as to have a dark background, against which the green leaves make a better appear ance. Can any one doubt that this bird has the sense of beauty? . Bee* Are Mach Like Human Being*. Bees do not appear to practice mili tary marauding on a grand scale, like ants, but many of them shamelessly live upon petty larcenies committed individ ually on foreign hives. They may 1* seen slyly trying to cheat the vigilance of the sentinels, and slip into their neigh bors’ cities that they may steal and gorge themselves with tne provision there. Som-times they even commit highway robbery, lying in wait in small bands near a strange hive for the return of laden bees and plundering them on the road. The sentinels of the hive, on their side, keep off foreign bees, denying them entrance into the city, and if exasperated by attempts at robbery chase the prowl ers and try to kill them. In this bees imitate a great many human societies, where robbery has seemed the greatest of crimes, erpiable only by death.— “Property; Its Origin and Development." Vegetarianl*m and Meat Eating. A curious examination of the heart* of the vegetarian and the meat eater shows that the number of l*eats to the former are fifty-eight to the minute, and of the latter seventy-two. In twenty-four hours this means a differ ence of 20.000 beats. From this it is concluded that in the summer time the vegetarian has the advantage, for he can keep cooler and in better health under the reduced number of heart beat*. But in a cold climate, or in our own winters, the heat generated by such slow heart beats would hardly be suffi cient to make life strong and resisting enough. The true verdict that one must reach is that the vegetarian is better off in the summer and the meat eater stronger in the winter.—Yankee Blade. A Xml of Wild Oat*. It was while in the river valley that I ■aw cm a friend’s house wall what was to me the most attractive of all species of oriole architecture—a nest woven from wild oata. Dependent from stream ers it would have been readily mistaken for an artistic little fancy basket, the work at human ingenuity, so perfect was its construction. Yet there had been no attempt at alteration since it was borne from the limb of the tree where found swinging, except that now it was suspended by ribbons, while the bird used none.—San Diego Cor.

I have ju-t returned home from an even ing at the play, or rather from visiting my friends, the Robinsons. Robinson, an amiable man except when his shoelace breaks, sat alone and glum in the study. His teeth were clinched, his face was pale and he stared hard at the fire. He welcomed me with an effort and then forgot me. He is a business man and lam not: so I concluded that stocks or debentures had fallen or tisen (or what ever it is these things do to plunge tho*e who know what they are in despair). 1 tried the drawing room and there found the two little giris crying, Mrs. Robinson on the couch, with her face to the wall. This was serious, and seemed to me to mean at least a “corner” in stocks. It was :*<>t storks, however, my hostess told me from behind a handkerchief, it was Bobby. Had not her husband shown me "the lett r?” Bobby is tne heir, aged seven. I softly withdrew from the drawing room and re turned to Robinson, who. with trembling arm, banded me "the letter.” It was from the master of a school to which P*oiby iroes by train daily, except during the bird nest ing season, wh, n other matters claim his attention. The letter read thus: Dear Sir —I regret to have to apprise yoa of the fact that 1 had today to cane your son severely. He is the youngest boy I Lave ever caned, but his delinquencies have of late been ■o frequent that no other coarse was open to me. This *om:n unicat ion will doubtless cause you pain, bat the punishment will have a bene ficial effect not only on him. but on the other boys of his age. whose leader in mischief he has been. Ttwy wiil no longer make a hero of one whom they have seen publicly chastised. The disgrace of the punishment, indeed, is greater than the punishment itself. That Robert may feel his shame more keenly I have read this letter to hitn. and he shall be the bearer of it to yoa. “And where is Bobby at present?” I asked, when 1 had read this terrible letter. “Crying Lis eyes out in thenursery.no doubt.” answered Robinson. “Of course 1 should have him here, but I can't face bin —I can’t face him. I don't blame his ma ter. but— My dear friend, think of it! The youngest boy ever caned in the school! The marks won’t wear off his hands for h week, and think of his agony of mind every time he looks at them! Bobby is a sensitive boy, otherwise I should not take it so much to heart. My hands, I assure you, are tingling as if I had been caned myself.” Mrs. Robinson was for the moment not on speaking terms with Robinson, because he seemed to think that Bobby should con tinue to go to "such a school.” If Bobby had misconducted himself, surely the blame lay with a master who did not un derstand that he was a boy who could best be ruled by kindness. She had never had the least trouble with Bobby. Xo, he was not in the house. He had ran out imme diately after delivering the letter, and she had searched for him everywhere in vain. His pride had been broken. He would never be the same boy again. He was afraid to be looked at. He w;is no doubt hidden somewhere in the cold night, and he had not even on his greatcoat and he would catch his death of cold. “If Le d>• -s, mamma,'’asked the older girl, brightening, “will the master be hanged? And, oh, do you think we could get tickets?” The night was dark, so we lit a lantern and set off to look for the un.iappy Bobby At last we found him—in Mr. Ma. kinnou's stable. We looked through crevices in the Woodwork and this is what we saw: Bobby in tremendous spirits was the center of a group of envious and admiring youths, some of them school fellows. ■ ;ht rs ragged lads of the village. If they itegan to brag Bobby stopped them short with, j “That isn’t nothing; you didn’t never get cants!.” “Yes. I did. though,” insifted one. “Let : e your hand,” retorted Bobby. “Oh, ho! e won’t, and ’cause there's not no marks on it.” “Let us see yonr bands again, Bobby.” Bobby held oat his hands as proudly as if they contained a diamond. “By gum! I say. Bobby, come and play with me tomorrow.'’ “Let me walk beside you, Bobby, and ITI give you my crossbow. It’s brake, but” “Bobby, Pm the one you like best, ain’t If” Tm the youngest be ever licked!” cried Bobby in a transport of deUgbL He began to strut up and down the stable. “Well, then, you needn’t bounce about it like that.” “Pm the youngest he ever caned!
