Th.c so-called turkey buxzr.rd !h not it buzzard, hut a vulture, by itit ictlii-g ■jp .,11 this distinction the liu:s:aid tribe could improve its reputation fm eiem.li ncss. It is against the law in almost every southern state to shoot n turkey buzzard. There itrc (wo excolleot re-.s.m.s for this prohiidtion: (he buzsuru an th.e aveugcra of the .south, and there in no telling what sort of u pestilence m'ead turkey lmzaard would briny on if ttnykody should kill one. The turkey l.uzzard is a knowing bird. He knows he is not good to lie oaten— though his knowing this does not imply that lie has superior knowledge—and he is not shy of mankind. He hover:' over the market places in the southern car, wait ing for business to close: and when the crowd of purchasers has departed the buz zard descends and feasts upon the odds anil ends that have fallen from 1 lie* hatchers' aiul the fishmongers' knives. The scarcity of hash, mince pie and fish chowder in the southern states is some thing for which the buzzard should have credit. In Charleston there is a big pub lic market down by the water, and the buzzards always clean up utter business horn's. The wisdom of the turkey buzzard is known also by one of his expedients for getting rid of work, which is fatiguing in the southern states. He. goes to the mouths of rivers, where the eontlietlng forces of current and tide deposit on the banks a considerable proportion of the carrion and other unwholesome tilings that are borne toward the sea on tin* river's flood, and tlicVe lie accommodates his not very fastidious appetite to the movement- of the tides. All animals that perish inland are found by the .mz/.imK it is even said that flocks of these birds will hover for days and nights over a horse or cow that is on its last legs. A northerner was driven out of southern Georgia last winter by some one telling him that the buzzards were beginning to keep an eye ou him. Hast summer the sheriff of a county in Florida disappeared in the woods after having loaded up a big revolver, and told Iris wife he was going to shoot himself. Some little effort was made to learn whether he had kept his promise, but after n day of searching in the cypress swamps the searchers sat down in the shade of their houses and said they would wait three days, when the buzzards would fliul him. and then they would find the buzzards. The turkey buzzard, despite his formid able look, is a harmless bird. Not only does he never strike a creature till it is down, hut he hardly ever strikes il ttil it is dead.—Georgia Cor. New York Sail. A Curious Kxperinient In Guernsey The history of Guernsey furnishes a cu- j rious and perhaps instructive instance of the kind of uses that paper money may serve. It was determined to build a meat, market, and £4,000 were devoted to pay the cost. Notes were issued by t lie au thorities for that amount, and were guar anteed on the "whole of the property of the island, said to lie worth four millions. ' Tlie.se notes were worthless outside of Guernsey, and so they were never export ed. They were one pound notes, and were uumliered from 1 up io 4.000. With them the contractor was paid, he paid bis work men in the same money, and those that supplied him with materials. Tradesmen took them for goods, landlord and the authorities for taxes. "Indue season." to quote from .Iona than Duncan, "the market was complete The butchers' stalls, with some public rooms constructed over them, were let for an annual rent of £400. At the first year of tenancy the states called in the first batch of notes, minibi-rcd from 1 to 400. aiul with the £400 of real money received for rent redeemed the £400 of representa tive money expressed by the meat market ; j I j j ! i !

Who thinks it is difficult to pull out winner in a boat nice? Absurd! The shells glide along so easily, the seats move so lightly, and the ours gleam so brightly, that it must be the simplest thing in the world. Only when you are hard at it. and it seems as though the in fernal Inal were held buck by a thousand j submarine hands, and your back aches so that the tears drip from your eyes, and there is a noise in your cars like the din of a million boiler factories, ami you can't think, speak or hope, but only make frantic efforts to pull your almost- unman ageable arms out of t heir sockets, then it's easy—oh. so easy! Ages later, you are conscious of living past the flnisli, and you gasp, in a voice that is certainly not your own, while a drop of blood falls from your mouth and leaves its record on your flan nel breeches: "I )id—we—beat—'em—ver'—1 ind?"
