Many explanations have boon given of the origin of the expression "raining cats and dogs." One is that it is a per version of the French "catadoupe," a waterfall "it is raining a catadoupes," or cataracts. Another explanation is that the male blossoms of the willow tree, which are used on Palm Sunday to represent the branches of palm, were called "cats&nd dogs" in some parts of England, where they increase rapidly after a few warm April show ers, and the belief prevailed that the rain brought them. Others trace the saying to northern mythology. In which the cat is said to have great influence on the weather, and sailors still have a saying, "The cat has a gale of wind in her tail," when she is unusually frisky. Witches that rode upon the storms were said to assume the form of cats, and the stormy northwest wind Is called "the cat's nose" in the Harz mountains even at the present day. Then the dog is a symbol of wind, which in old Ger man pictures Is figured as the head of a dog or wolf from which blasts issue. The cat therefore symbolizes a down pour of rain; the dog. strong gusts of wind, 'which accompany it, and so a rain "of cats and dogs" is a heavy rain with wind. Erolntlon of the Bayonet. The sweynes-eather (I:og's bristle), which seems to have been the original prototype of the bayonet, was a long rapier blade, fixed in a handle and car ried in a sheath, which was given to a musketeer for defense after he had dis charged his piece. Stuck by its handle In the muzzle of his gun, it constituted a very efficient weapon for acting against pikemen. To diminish his in cumbrance the ' sweynes-feather ' an;I musket rest wete conTbined, the latter forming a sheath for the former, in the reign of James I. Toward the latter part of the civil war the use of the musket rest was aban doned, and it became the practice to stick the dagger by its handle into the muzzle of the piece after discharging it. In 1GS9 two rings were added by which the bayonet was placed on the muzzle without interfering with the firing. TWs improvement, the inven tion of General Muekay. an English officer, was introduced into the French army by Vauban in 1703. By the Eng lish themselves it was not adopted un til after the bittle of Fontenoy (1745), where the advantages its use conferred on the French were only too painfully manifest, the Duke of Cumberland's army being defeated with the loss of 15,000 men. Pearson's Weekly. His OTrn Manuscript. George Ade, in the early days of his career, before the "Fables In Slang" had brought him fame, called one morning in Chicago upon a Sunday edi tor on a mission from a theatrical man ager. "I have brought you this manu script" he began, but the editor, look ing up at the tall, timid youth, inter rupted: "Just throw the manuscript in the wastebasket, please," he said. "I'm very busy just now and haven't time to do it myself." Mr. Ade obeyed calmly. He resumed: "I have come from the theater, and the manuscript I have just thrown in the wastebasket is your comic farce of 'The Erring Son.' which the man ager asks me to return to you with thanks. lie suggests that you sell it to an undertaker, to be read at funerals." Then Mr. Ade smiled gently and withdrew. "Cappinsr" Crows. The following account is given in Country Lii'e of the way in which pil fering crows are dealt with by Italian agriculturists: A hole of a certain depth is dug in the ground, at the bottom of which is placed some decayed meat. A funnel shaped wedge of paper is then inserted in to the hole, the upper edge of the paper being coated with birdlime. "Maitre Corbeau" sees the food, descends to grasp it, and when he has firm hold of it he rises up again. His head is, however' swathed with the paper cap, and in his mad endeavor to rid himself of it he circles up to ex traordinary heights In the air,1 revolv ing constantly and at so rapid a pace that, soon overcome with giddiness, he falls to the earth dead.
