Traveler Tells of Rats Who Used
Their Tails as Fishlines to
Catch Crabs.
Captain Moncton in his "Experi
ences of a New Guinea Resident Mag
istrate," relate the following inci
dent: "Having landed on an utterly
barren island formed of coral rock
and destitute of all vegetation, he
found it to be the home of an enor
mous ntSmber of -rats. There was no
trace of otbr auini&l life, and it was

impossible to imagine how, except by
continual preying upon one another, It
was possible for these rats to subsist.
"While seated at the water's edge,
turning over the problem In bis mind,
be noticed some of the rats going
down to the edge of the reef lank,
hungry-looking creatures they were,
with pink, naked tails. He stopped
on the point of throwing lumps of
coral at them, out of curiosity to see
what they meant to do. His curiosity
was soon gratified. Bat after rat
picked a flatfish place and, squatting
on the edge, dangled its tall in the
"Presently ene rat gave a violent
leap of a yard, landing well clear of
the water, and with a crab clinging to
its tall. Turning around, the rat
grabbed the crab and devoured it, and
then returned to the stone. Other
rats were seen repeating the performance."

says Sir George Trevelyan, "on the
danger of reading In bed, upon which
Macaulay replied with Immense rapid
ity of utterance: 'I always read in
bed at home; and If I am not afraid
of committing parricide and matricide
and fraticlde, I can hardly be expected
to pay any special regard to the lives
of the bagmen of Leeds.' And, so
saying, he left bis hearers staring at
one another, and marched off to his
Macaulay Silenced Critics.

The rose has been a favorite from
earliest times. So deep a hold has It
on the affections of the people that
It is often spoken of as the "queen of
flowers." It has figured in the litera
ture of all ages and all nations. Peo

the dooryards of the least pretentious
cottages, where often the occupants

well as on the grounds bf large es
tates, where abound the choicest
things that money can buy. It is also

Went Bravely to Death.
The nerviest prisoner who ever went
to the electric chair in Sing Sing was
James L. Odell, convicted of murder,
according to prison officials. Odell
spent his last hours gazing at tha pic
ture of his baby, born after he had
been sent to the death house, and
whom he had never seen. He made no
complaint. "We all have to pass
through the experience called death,"
he told the keeper. "I have no fear.
I am 'merely sorry that my life has
to be wasted In such a manner." He
walked steadily to the chair and wns
clear-eyed and without a pallor. In
m clear voice he said: "Good-by, gen
tlemen." He refused uny drugs to
bolster up his nerves and held out his
hand, saying: "I am as steady as
a erlD of steel."
