E-3DAY EVENING, JAN. !3. 1909. A SUBMARINE GARDEN. Gorgeoua and Cruel Living Fiowert of the Tropical Seat. In the world's vast submarine garden, especially in the tropics, are thousands of organisms which the botanist would naturally call plants. The tulip baa been reproduced by what the naturalist says is the hy drold polyp, an ugly name for one of the most exquisite things to which the sea has given birth. Like the Tulip, it is found in clutteri". The lily of the valley has life in the ocean's depths, where its delicate stem also benda with the weight of the snowy bells. Besides the microscopic forms, however, are others which are huge in contrast to them because they may be large enough to catch the eye. In the flower garden of the ocean the anemone is even more artistic in shape and gorgeous in coloring than its namesake so fa? miliar in the dooryard. Thia living flower* of the sea has boen found in scores of shapes. At times it is a pedestal-of pure white or of a gray? ish tint, bearing a wonderful re? semblance to a marble column. It shapes itself into the rose, ready to hold the plant or blossom. Like a bell, it hangs suspended in the wa? ters or again takes a fancy to be? come the modest but succulent to? mato, not only in form, but in col? or, while the anemone as a salad has indeed an appetizing appear? ance. Ixwking at the various models of this mysterious creation of nature, only the man of science would be? lieve it to be a thing of life. It is a voracious animal, too, for those beautiful fringes and edgings with which it is adorned are tentacles and stringers, with which it cap? tures the unlucky prey that comes within reach. Its ornate coloring, yellow, purple, pink, green, some? times a harmonious blend of sev? eral tints, is merely a device to lure it. victims to destruction. It is a very cruel specimen of sea flower. There are giants in the family also, some of which are as wide as a man's hand. These devour shrimp and small fish.?Day Allen Willey in Van Norden's, Handt and Pocketa. He was an English tourist, and when the train stopped at a high? land station he regarded the loung? ing natives with a curious interest. Beckoning one of them to hun, he said: "Good gracious, Donald?I sup Sose your name is Donald or Mac onald?you don't tell me that the misfortune of unemployment has reached so far north ?'' "Och, no/' said Donald. "It's no' bo bad as that whatever." "Well, but," said the investigator, "why is it I see a number of stal? wart young men like you standing about with their hands in their pockets ?" ? "Oh," replied Donald, '"it's per? haps because we have na been far enough south to learn to put them in other people's pockets."?Dun? dee Advertiser. Plenty of Ribs Ostend had often said iie wanted to be a surgeon when he grew up, and his mother was boasting about his knowledge of anatomy. "My son," she exclaimed before a party of visitors, "a man has how many ribs?" Ostend looked solemn. "Well, ma," ht- replied after a pause, "it just depends on the man. Now, a man called here today who had 1*9 ribs." "Ostend," said the mother stern? ly, "don't fib." "Tm not fibbing, ma." "And vou mean to say the man had 18(J ribs?" "Yessum. He was an umbrella mender." ? Kansas City Independ? ent. Book* to Read. The remark as to Macaulay being "a very common sort ol book buyer, who alwavs bought books to read," which, Sir George Trevelyan tells us, emanated from the late Bernard Quaritch, recalls an anecdote relat? ed by Locker-Lampson in "My Con? fidences."
