A Kestaurant for Birds.
"I intend driving out to see Uncle
Otto to-day,” said Mr. Marcy, at the
breakfast table. "Who would like to
take a sleigh-ride with me?” and he
looked straight into Kitty’s eyes. “Oh,
I would like to, papa!” said Kitty,
quickly. “May 1?”
If mamma thinks best,” Mr. Marcy
answered, and as mamma war, willing,
Kitty was soon putting on warm
wraps and preparing for her five-mile
drive. Uncle Otto lived upon the state
experimental farm, where he studied
the birds and insects, and then told the
farmers about them, and how to get
rid of those that destroyed the crops;
and a visit to him was always full of
interest to Kitty. Indeed, she thought
there never could be another uncle
quite so nice as Uncle Otto. Kitty lived
in Minnesota, where they sometimes
have a great deal of snow in the win
ter, and this year there had been an
unusual amount. The sleighing was
fine, and the country seemed so clean
and pretty that Kitty could not help
exclaiming as they sped along, for in
the city the snow was dirty, and here
everything was white as snow ought
to be. The drifts were piled high on
either side of the somewhat narrow
road, and when they met a team, papa
had to turn out very carefully in order
to avoid upsetting the sleigh. But
Kitty thought it all great fun, and
helped lean over when necessary to
keep the sleigh balanced. "I wonder
what Uncle Otto will have to show me
this time,” said Kitty, as they caught
the first sight of the large buildings
which told her that they were nearly
at the end of their ride. “He always
has something different from what
anybody else would have,” she added,
"and I learn something every time 1
come out here.” “I wonder, too,” an
swered papa. And then he drove up
to the house and Uncle Otto himself
came out and helped Kitty to unwrap
the big fur robe which tucked her in
so comfortably, and pretty soon they
were all sitting beside the fire and
talking as if it had been a year instead
of two months since they had seen
each other. Immediately after lunch
Uncle Otto turned to Kitty and said, “I
am going out now to see to my birds’
restaurant. Would you like to go with
me?” As they started, Uncle Otto took
with him a large covered basket, and
he went toward the great grove of oak
trees which extended for miles back
of the house. Presently he stopped
beneath a tree from a branch of which
was hanging a loosely colled wire.
Then he opened his basket and took
out something white and round like a
ball. "What is that, Uncle Otto?” ask
ed Kitty. “That is mutton suet,” he
answered. Then he uncoiled the wire,
placed the suet on the branch and
bound it securely with the wire.
“Now,” he added, turning to Kitty,
"one table is spread for dinner.” “Oh,”
said Kitty, suddenly, “you do it for the
birds?" "Yes. indeed,” Uncle Otto re
turned. “You see there are lots of cold
weather birds who do not leave us
through the long winter, and when
the snow gets very deep they have a
hard time to find enough to eat; then
besides, when it is very cold indeed, !
as it has been lately, they need some
kind of food which will produce heat
in their little bodies, and the mutton
suet does just that. So when I began
to think how deep the snow was and
how long it had been cold, I thought I
had better open a restaurant for the
birds, or some of them might die, and :
this is the way I did it.” Kitty looked
interested, so Uncle Otto went on. “I
fasten the suet in place with wire, be
cause if I tied it on with string the !
birds would peck at the string and
their dinner would drop to the ground
and probably be eaten by a dog or cat.
I tie it high on the tree for the same
reason, so that only the birds shall
have it.” Uncle Otto had been tying
many pieces of suet in place while he
talked, and now that the last one was
in place the}' turned back to the house.
“What a chattering!” exclaimed Kitty,
stopping suddenly and looking back.
“Yes,” said Uncle Otto, "the birds are
very sociable at dinner, and some
times, I am sorry to say, they de not
display the best of manners or disposi
tion; but I always try to think it is
the fault of their training anti so do
not blame them so much. At any rate.
I would not want even the naughty
ones to go hungry.” "But how do they
know so soon that their dinner is
ready?” Kitty asked. “I have come to
believe,” answered Uncle Otto, “that
some of them watch for me, and when
they see me they notify the others that
dinner is ready by calling, for only a
few days after I began putting out the
suet for them. I noticed the noise, and
that they all gathered very q . y
after I went away. So I have .;
the conclusion that they look . a?,
and know that I am manager of their
restaurant.” Kitty laughed heartily.
“What a funny idea!” she said. And
then after a moment she added. "I be
lieve I’ll start a restaurant on a small ,
scale at home. I like to see the birds
around, and it rrM such fun to ‘
DrMsMa-m
watch them. But. do you know,” she
added, “I never thought before about
the deep snow making it hard for them
to find enough to eat. If I cannot have
a restaurant I will have a lunch coun
ter.”

A I) >ze i Conundrums.
1. Why do you go to bed? Because
the bed will not come to you. 2. When
is a ship like a book? When it is out
ward bound. 3. Why has an ocean
voyage no terrors for physicians? Be
cause they are accustomed to see sick
ness. 4. Why is a popular novel like
autumn? Because its leaves are quick
ly turned and always read (red). 5.
Why should a thirsty man always car
ry a watch? Because there’s a spring
inside of it. 6. Who are the most ex
acting of all landlords? Why, child
ren; because they never fail to make
their father and mother parents. 7.
What is it that no one wishes to have
yet, when he has it, he would be very
sorry to lose? A bald head. 8. What
conundrums are always at home?
Those that are never found out. 9.
What insect does a tall father repre
sent? A daddy-long-legs. 10. When a
lady faints what figure should you
bring her? You should bring her two.
1. Why is a pig in the parlor like a
house on fire? Because the sooner it
is put out the better. 12. When are
eyes not eyes? When the wind makes
them water.
The Puppy and the Mail.
Such a funny thing happened in New
York city the other day. When the
collector opened one of the big mail
boxes he found the papers and pack
ages all moving as though there was
something alive under them. He put
in his hand to take some of them out,
and with a glad little yelp, the cutest,
little, bright-eyed puppy stuck his
nose up through the papers and seemed
so glad to see the man. The collector
lifted him out and he wagged his tail
with joy and looked up into his face
as though he were thanking him for
taking him out of that dark place. The
collector found a tag tied about the
puppy’s neck having a two-cent stamp
and the direction of a western city on
it. There is no provision for sending
puppies by mail; the poor little thing
might have been smothered among the
papers in a closed mail bag, so the
kind-hearted collector kept the puppy
at the office where it has plenty to eat
and drink and is petted by every one.
Herbert Spencer's Gospel.
The following is the late Grant Al
ien’s summary of the "Gospel Accord
ing to Herbert Spencer:” Know your
self and your own place in the universe
about you. Fear no phantoms, but face
realities. Understand your own body,
and the light cast upon it by the an
alogy of other bodies. Understand your
own mind, and the light cast upon it
by the history and evolution of other
minds. Understand the phenomena, or
ganic and inorganic, physical or psych
ical, by which they severally conform.
Understand the society of which you
are a member, and learn from like an
alogies the origin and functions of its
various parts. So, in your capacity as
individual, will you govern your own
path through the world aright; so, in
your capacity as parent, will you pro
duce and bring up better units for the
composition of the society in future;
so, in your capacity as citizen, will you
help to mold the state of which yov are
a part to ultimate conformity with
truth and justice.
Monkey from Java.
A wonderful monkey, one of the
nearest approaches to the missing link
in captivity, walked into the cage in
the Central Park zoo. shook hands
with his keeper in human fashion, and,
walking erect on his legs, calmly sur
veyed his new surroundings. He is the
property of O. H. P. Belmont, who
obtained him in the island of Java
last summer, and has negotiated with
the city for his care until next spring.
The new arrival stands two feet four
inches in height, has large black eyes,
and, unlike others of his kind, has
hardened heels like the human family.
Its arms are as long as the legs and
body put together. There is no tail,
and a circle of gray, bushy hair all
around the face gives it a remarkable
appearance. Its face resembles that
of a human being. It was classed as
“Gibbon, or the long-armed monkey,”
and the menagerie authorities believe
that it is the only specimen of its race
in captivity.—New York World.
Mice a. Food in China.
The first thing that strikes the trav
eler in China, upon his entrance into
any of the many cities of the Celestial
Empire, is the strings of dried mice
which hang from the roofs of the
houses suspended by their tails, just
as sausages are hung in front of butch
er shops in France. The Chinese hunt
these mice with a long, sharp pointed
knife, which they plunge into the ani
mals’ throats. Then the mice are sus
pended by the tails until the blood has
dripped out, when they are skinned,
drawn and smoked. Another favorite
dish with the Chinese Is dogs’ feet.
The feet of black dogs are considered
more of a delicacy than those of any
other color, and white dogs are reject
ed as being tasteless. Dogs’ fat. pre
pared in a special manner, is looked
upon as a repast fit for a king.
Starting Wrong.
"Dear me,’’ said little James, "I but
toned just one button wrong, and that
makes all the rest go wrong,’’ and he
tugged and fretted as if the poor but
tons were at fault for his trouble. • Pa
tience. patience,” said his sister. "The
next time look out for the first wrong
button, then you’ll keep all the rest
right.” What a practical lesson can
be drawn from this little boy’s mis
take. How frequently the first ac:
leads to great evils and sad ends. Iht
little boy struck his brother. That was
the first wrong deed. 1 hen he denied
it. That was another. Then he was
unhappy anti cross all da„ because he
did not Ml the truth.
