The Influence Which I'rges Birds to
Change Their Hume with the Seasons.
To the older philosophers instinct was
a, far more wonderful thing than it ap
pears now. They asserted that all the
actions of the lower animals were per
formed through instinct, and explained
that they possessed this faculty in lieu
ot intelligence, which was the peculiar
attribute of man. This was, however.
toon exploded by the demonstration of
the possession of intelligence among
animala and of instinct by man. In
deed the later philosophers have come to
believe that almost all the actions of
man are influenced if not controlled by
instinct alone.
Tho tendency to migration of certain
rice of animals is plainly referable to
hereditary influence. Originally,
no doubt, migration occurred because
food was more easily found in one lo
cality than in another. The hereditary
memory, so to speak, pointed out the
place where more food was to be ob
tained with less exertion. Gradually
other surroundings suggested themselves
as agreeable to the embryo mind, and
and these, repeated through many gen
erations, created that unthinking tend
enoy toward a particular place or cli
mate regardless of its original fitness.
Almost all our ideas are gained from
association, and it is fair to imagine that
the constant and repeated association of
a particular locality, with a pleasurable
sensation—the satiation of hunger, for
example—would soon identify the sen
sation with the place. Then would be
evolved the sentiment of home, a senti
ment which we feel only more keenly
than the lower animals because it is as
sociated not only with the place where
there is something to eat, but because
Of other pleasurable sensations associated
with it, as they are as constantly found
in the same locality.
It is a mistake to regard the migratory
instincts of animals as unerring. Every
Seedsman has observed how a particu
r species of bird will apparently desert
a certain locality for another for one or
more seasons. Occasionally this may
result from choice, but it seems alto
gether more probable that it is from
some mistake on the part of the birds
themselves. Their generally accurate
course has been deflected by some cir
cumstance, and they have made their
homes elsewhere. In the case of strag
glers this is particularly marked. They
rarely succeed iv rejoining the main
body to which they originally belonged,
and are forced to be content with what
ever suitable place may be found.
Migratory animals and birds are al
most always gTegarious—that is, they
live and especially they travel in com
pact flocks or herds. They do this for
one reason only—that the wisdom of a
number is greater than that of any one.
Any error in the ronte would be detected
by one or another and thence communi
cated to the whole flock. Once in a
while they are all mistaken, and then
some incoming steamer serves as a point
of rest for the tired little wings, or some
hitherto unknown country becomes the
new home of tho home seekers.
But there is much that is very won
derful and awe inspiring in the instinct
that guides them. If indeed it is merely
the reflex of the memory of long de
parted ancestors —if the thoughts as
well as the sins of the father descend to
remote generations, what tendencies
and inclinations are we transmitting to
our children which may in later genera
tions develop to good or evil? Are we
steering a straight course, like the old
gray goose?— Baltimore Sun.
Tidal Waves of Humanity.
The increase or decrease of population
by natural or artificial causes and the
distribution of mankind over different
parts of the globe are the dominant fac
tors of tbe history and condition of the
human race. The rise and fall of na>
tions and of empires, the progress or
decline of civilization and the domina
tion of man over the uncultivated parts
of the earth are all due to the waves of
population which are driven by various
causes to new scenes of existence amd
new seats of power.
These tidal movements of humanity
have occurred over and over again at
many periods of the world's history, but
with great irregularity. There have
been times when the increase of popula
tion has been slow and its habits seden
tary. There have been times when the
whole human race seems to have been
in motion,-driven by some mysterious
impulse to seek new lands to cultivate
and ne"w homes;— Edinburgh Review.
Another Function of Fishes' Ears.
Sharks hUte lately been affording con
tributions to science. The biologists
nave been vivisecting them for the pur
pose of finding out about the functions
of the ear, which in fishes is made to
some extent on the same pattern as in
man. The fact has been known for some
time that the ear is not merely au organ
of hearing. It has to do with the sense
of equilibrium. Light has been thrown
on this matter by removing portions of
the auditory apparatus of sharks, which
are thus rendered unable to maintain
their balance in the water. The part on
which this faculty seems to depend is
the "labyrinth," and the same effect is
produced by cutting the nerves commu
nicating with it.—Washington Cor. Bos
ton Transcript.
A Costly Prayer Book.
Queen Elizabeth used to carry about
with her suspended by a chain of pure
gold, a book called "The Golden Manual
of Prayer," a dainty volume of 300
pages, bound in "hammered virgin
gold." One side of this costly volume
gave a representation of "The Judg
ment of Solomon," the other the "Bra
sen Serpent on the Cross in the Desert."

The first steamboat in Great Britain
was the Comet, forty feet long, built in

but before this time Fulton and.Living

that means business, too —it's
backed up by money. This
is what they offer: $500 re
ward for a case of Catarrh
which they cannot cure. They
mean it. They're willing to
take the risk—they know their
medicine. By its mild, sooth

properties, it produces per

the worst cases of chronic Ca

it every day, where everything
else has failed. No matter

cured. You're sure of that—

Haunted by an Advertisement.
Have you ever been haunted by an ad
I have asted lots of people that ques
tion r.nd mey nearly all tell me that
thej have undergone such an experience
at one time or anothe*.
The particular ••ad" that haunts me is
one containing the picture of a man's
face. A very insipid face it is, too, with
an absolutely perfect black mustache
attached to it. It has a grewsome effect,
too, as there is no neck visibly attached
to the head, and I have often wondered
if it would be possible to cut a man's
head off so that none of the neck would
be left on.
This face persists in getting in front
of me and staring at me with those
meek eyes. No matter which end-c-f an
elevated car I go in just as soon as I am
comfortably seated ill a seat I can feel
that face looking at me; and sure
enough there it always is—above the
windows directly across the car. If I
open the advertising pages of a maga
zine that face will be tho first thing to
meet my eye. On the street I am always
seeing it on the billboards or some ad
vertising dodger.
You may say that this is all very
easily explained by the fact of the ad
vertisement beiny v very common one
that everybody would bo running
against. On the contrary it is rather of
an uncommon one, but wherever it is 1
am sure to find it. I don't know what
the article is tho face advertises, and I
don't want to. I only want to be freed
from tiie nightmare of that mask.—New
York Herald.
Placer's Big Cherry Trees.
In some remote age the deep, whirling
waters of the American river at Monte
Rio washed out the rock layers of long
previous geological formation to the
depth of probably 200 feet or more, and
this excavation being filled to half its
depth by alluvial material from the
sides of adjacent hills, formed a deposit
over sixty feet deep and soma ten or
twelve acres in present area.
The waters of the American now form
only a small stream, the alluvial deposit
that has made the giant cherry tree
growth being ten or a dozen feet higher
than the usual current of the deep river
channel. The soil of Hector's cherry
orchard has been bored to ovef sixty
feet in depth without touching bed rock
or rock of any kind, the alluvial quality
continuing to th,i» great depth. On
about four acres of this soil black Tar
tarian cherry trees were set in 1862 or
1868 by ancestral relatives of the pres
ent owner, several smaller orchards or
additions having been planted since.
There are 150 large trees that yield 40
boxes, or 400 pounds each, in alternate
years. The trees are kept trimmed of
all dead wood and lime washed every
season, and are still making vigorous and
healthy growth. The tallest tree is 68
feet high, with a head from 50 to 66 feet
in width, and over a score more of the
150 large trees are from 40 to 50 feet tall,
with corresponding width of top growth
so that the excess in height of the tallest
tree is not very conspicuous.—Country
