The visitor approached one of the gayly uniformed attendants who spend their days In the bird house of the Bronx park zoological gardens. This privileged being must, she thought, have Imbibed at least a touch of senti ment "Isn't there," she asked, "some story, some myth, connected with that pigeon which has on Its breast the red splotch like blood from a bullet wound?" "Story? Myth? Git off! 'Course there ain't no story about It It's just a red feather or so—that's all. See?" The bird was born that way. "But where do they come from? There must be a story, some—" "I tell you there ain't nothin' about 'em. As to where they grow, I think it's the Philippines." A slightly more affable attendant did disclose the name of the pigeon. It was called blood-breasted, and it did come from the Philippines. But If there was a story—and there must have been—none of the liveried Infor mation bureaus knew It. No sentiment for them! They only said, "Keep to the right!" when the Inquirer became too persistent—New York Evening Post Tip From Son. "Money, my boy, won't buy every thing."

A rule which holds fairly true among the higher animals is that an animal lives five times as long as it requires for his muscular system to reach Its full strength. The dog Is fully devel oped at between two and three years of age, and lives fifteen years; th» horse reaches his prime not later than five, and if he escapes overwork and ill usage, lives to be twenty-five and even thirty. In fact, the rule seems to be an understatement of animal ex pectation of life, rather than an over statement The one conspicuous exception Is man, who seldom reaches his full mus cular strength before he Is twenty-five and counts himself living on borrowed time if he passes the age of seventy. If man were as well circumstanced In this matter as the horse, dog or cat, his average term of life would vary from one hundred and ten to one hun dred and twenty-five years. Here'» a Fine Idea.
