Hundreds of thousands of birds'
nests are built every year in trees
and hed 'es. What, becomes of all
these hones after the birdn have
flitted Irom tl.em at summer's end?
M ist of them are lined with sheep's
wool with feathers and other ma
terials that bind them together.
Pieties and motbsand other insects
devour these things, and by thus
destroying them loosen the nests so
much that wind and rain soon scatter
the rest of the materials. But for
this timely help the trees would he
clogged up with a mass of old nets,
the leaves rouid not sprout, and many
trees would perish.

From statistics recently compiled it
Is si. own that railroad men are not
only becoming more proficient in their
duties, but that they are also becom
ing more temperate in their habits.
It is stated that ahout twenty years
ago, more than 20 per cent of the men
discharged from the New York Cen
tral road were discharged for drunk
enness. At the prefect time in an
armv of over 20,000 men enmiojed
by the road, less than 1 per cm of
t.ho'ie dismissed from service can
face their ci-harge to the ciuse of
drunkenness. The railroads are rah)
