THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN- SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 1 26, ,1896. MONKEY LIGHTS MATCHES. But Has Not the Intelligence to Kindle a Fire with Them. . No creature but man has ever made use of fire. An African traveler, indeed, has told a story of apes making a thiev ing raid on a eamp of natives, and car rying torches to light their way; but this story lacks proof, and is not ac cepted as true by zoologists. 1 There is, however, says the Youth's Companion, in the Philadelphia zoologi cal garden a monkey who has learned to scratch matches perfectly well. This accomplishment he is willing to exhibit on any occasion. He has learned to hold the match by its middle part, so that .his fingers are not burned by being too near the flame, and eo that the match will not break by being held too near the This fact involves another, that he is aware which end has the sulphur, and does not attempt to scratch the unsul phured end. He has furthermore learned that a rough surfaceisbetterto scratch the match on than a smooth one, and his care in looking for the rough places is very diverting.. But with all these intelligences, the monkey has no notion of kindling an other fire with the one that he has caused by the friction of the match. He simply lets the match burn out, and if he lights another, does it for the pleas ure ui seeing n-uurn. 9 This monkey's keepers, and the men of science who are experimenting with 1 The highest claim for other tobaccos is "Just as good as Durham."

THE BENEHotNT CROW. What He Does for the Farmer Despite His Reputation. If farmers would make a study of natural history and its bearings on their property the relation of hawks to their hen coops, for instance there would be better paying crops. . The Year Book of the department of agriculture tells about cow black birds and what they eat. About 2,300 of their stomachs have been examined, and of these 2,258 contained food. The bitter after standing a few hours or a single day and that the feed used is of the best, clean and wholesome. Some of the cows have been in but a few months others will be fresh within three months. " Cows that have been in but a few months, are properly fed, have pure water, free access to all the salt they wish and give milk that is bitter with out being tainted by contact with out side surroundings, may be in ill-health which affects the condition of the blood. The best remedy for this trouble if produced by the, blood being out of con dition is to give a pound of sulphate of soda (glauber salts) or of sulphate of magnesia (epsom salts), dissolved m birds were killed in 26 states. Forty- j warm water, by means of a common eight per cent, of the food was animal, 48 per cent, vegetable and four per cent, was mineral. The blackbird has a variety of things it eats. "The animal food," says the report, "consisted of insects, spiders, myria pods (thousand legs), crawfish, earth worms, sowbugs, hair snakes, snails, fishes, tree toads, salamanders (newts), lizards, snakes, birds' eggs anil mice."' To these might have been added young birds, fish cast up by the tide, minnows caught while swimming in shallow water, and probably meat and carrion of various kinds; Most of the animal food is, of course, insects. These con stitute 46 per cent, of the total, the other two per cent, being the larger things, like mice. The animal food is taken mostly in the summer. In win ter the food is mostly vegeiable matter. The insects the bird kills more than make up the damage he does, especially as his nest robbing appears to be only an accidental habit not often indulged in. A large flock of the birds would of course destroy a lot of grain. Some 50,000 would eat about 3,000 pounds a day, but they would consume as many insects, which , would more than de stroy the amount the birds do. "FORM- IN BICYCLING. Haw Society People Go a Wheeling At tending ti rooms and Maids. The "form" of bicycling is beginning to be studied. Grooms on wheels must follow their mistresses as they did on horseback; it is probably only a ques tion of a short time when the lady's maid will have to include wheeling with her other accomplishments to secure a drenching horn or long-necked bottle; and after this has operated, a -daily dose of one ounce of hyposulphite of soda may be given with good results, for two weeks. This latter is readily taken, by most cows, when powdered and sprinkled over a mess of scalded bran or in other feed. Western Rural. THE TURKISH KAIK. It 3Xore Closely Resembles the Gondola Than Any Other Craft. Crawford, the author, to whose skill ful pen Constantinople is indebted for one of the most charming volumes ever issued in. its praise, has a word to say about the Turkish boatmen and their vehicle, the kaik. "Constantinople owes much,'' writes he, "to the matchless beauty of the three waters which run together be neath its walls, and much of their repu tation again, has become world-wide by the kaik. It is disputed and dis putable whether the Turks copied the Venetian gondola or whether the Vene tians imitated the Turkish kaik, but the resemblance between them is so strong as to make it certain that they have a common origin. Take from the dongola the 'felse', or hood, and the rostrated stei, and the remainder is practically the kaik. It is of all craft of its size the swiftest, the most easy to handle and the most, comfortable, and the Turks generally are admitted to be the best oarsmen in Europe. Indeed, they have need to be, for both the Bosphorous and the Golden Horn arj crowded with craft of every kind, and made dangerous by the situation. On the road the woman who i swiftest of currents.

BOUGHT ANOTHER'S MUSTACHE. : pleasure or for the sake of exercise. It is no joke to pull 15 or 16 miles against a stream which in some places runs four or five knots an hour." A Japanese Lady Politic!.!. The most remarkable woman in po!i tics in Japan is Mme. Hatoyama. When her husband, a leader of the progres sionist party, ran for parliament, she took the stump and made speeches in his interest a very extraordinary thing for a Japanese lady to do. She is now a teacher in the academy of which her husband is principal. Is saved by obtaining a United States patent.

A few days' ago several per sons were sitting at a .table in a local hotel, when the splendid mustache of a horse dealer became the subject of conversation. One of the members of the party complimented the horse deal er and asked him for what price he would sell his mustache. "Ten francs," replied the latter, laughingly. "I will buy half of them," said the would-be ! purchaser, placing five francs on the j table. The horse dealer put the money in his pocket and later in the evening I left the hotel. Not quite appreciating ' the joke, the man who was minus the five francs sought the aid of the county court process server, and having laid- i the information in regular form brought action against the horse dealer for 500 francs damages for non-execu- 1 tion of his contract. . r ....!, This Is Tour Opportunity, On receipt of ten cents, cash or stamps, a generous sample will be mailed of the i most popular Catarrh and Hay Fever Cure j (Ely's Cream Balm) sufficient to demon strata the great merits of the remedy, j ELI BROTHERS, 56 Warren St. .
