Louisiana Rice -Is Red.
The-rice planters -and . millers ol Southwestern Louisiana are . having come trouble with the crop this season. For some unaccountable reason a con siderable percentage o It Is red. This Is not the first season that red grains have appeared among the white, to be 6ure, but never before has the propor tion been so large. An examination by chemists has shown that the red rice Is equally nutritious as white. The value of the article as a matter of food is not in the least injured by the red grains. But the fact remains that the colored grains Injure the sale of the rice they appear in. Humors of Examination. - The humors ci examination papers were further illustrated by Dr. Haig . Brown, who, in speaking at the City of London college upon the responsibili ty which rested upon examiners in weighing fragments of knowledge, said that Lhe question, "What are the Chil tern Hundreds?" once received the re ply, "Small animals which abound in great numbers In cheese." The In quiry, "What is a cherub?" elicited, in its turn, the answer, "Aa Immoral be ing ' of uncertain shape." London Chronicle. Masts and Sails.

The strange friendships that sometimes ex ist between animals that are by nature enemies have a new variation in the deep attachment between a dog and a chicken. The dog had belonged to a certain family in city day's before the suburbs were in its plan. Afterward the attempt to raise chickens was Idle because of his serious objections that were made plain whenever a stray chicken crossed his path, unless that one happened to be the little bantam hen. Finally all the others were dis posed of, and the two odd companions continued to spend their time together. The little hen sits in perfect quiet while the dog licks her feathers, or she perches on his back while he walks. At night he stays by preference in the chicken house and the bantam perches beside him. A Point In jCarvlna; Etiquette.

An extraordinary phenomenon has been noticed with regard to chestnut trees in a street in Brussels since the Installation of the electric tram cars. The foliage begins to turn brown and drop early in August, to bud and even blossom again in October. The trees on the opposite side of the tramway behave like ordinary trees, for they lose their foliage in the late autumn and do not put forth fresh blossoms until spring. Botanists are inclined to believe that this singular state of things is due to the leakage of the electrical current at places under ground acting upon the roots- of the trees, which are otherwise healthy.
