The call Is formed Internally In the throat and chest and la only rendered audible by resonance. Similar ways may be observed in many bird» and other ani mals. The clear, loud call of the cuckoo, according to one naturalist, Is the resonance of a note formed In the bird. The whirring of the snipe, which betrays the approach of the bird to the hunter, is nn act of ventriloquism.

There has never been a political cam paign that will equal in importance that of the one to be fought next year. The republican party, backed by the money power of this country and Europe, is alert and aggressive. Flush ed with the victory of three years ago it will seek by every means in Its power to maintain its supremacy. Democrats must be up and doing. They must wage an unceasing war up on their enemies. In no better and more effective way can this be done than by the circulation of good, sound democratic newspapers. The publisher of the Chicago Dispatch, the great nati onal democratic weekly, will send to every new subscriber for three months a copy of the Chicago Dispatch for ten centB. If you are not already taking the great political weekly, Bend in ten cents at once. You should not only do this' yourself, but you should induce all your friends to join with you.
