The ll0mencd Raven
Many birds seek the protection
which tho presence of man affords
against furred and feathered foes
when the breeding season approaches
Not so the raven Its distrust of us Is
profound and Its nest Is placed In
some wild spot far out of reach of
our possible attack or succor But
there are other enemies I know of a
pair that built on one side of a pro
jecting crag high up on the cllfts of
Rathlln Island Some fierce peregrine
falcons occupied the other side of tho
crag and when one day thIr eggs
were taken by an adventurous collect
or they sharing the popular opinion
of a ravens blackness concluded that
their neighbors were tho offenders
and wreaked their grief and vengeanco
upon them When on their return
from a foraging expedition the falcons
found their nest despoiled they were
seen to hold a consultation and after
much deliberation they suddenly
arose and both with ono accord flow
at the ravens nest and sacked It
tearing It In their rage and indignation
until not one stick was left upon an
other London Standard
FOR THE HANDY CHILD
t
To Make an Aeolian Harp
This instrument can bo made by
Almost any ingenious boy It consists
of a long narrow box of vory thin
wood about flvo or six Inches deep
with a clrclo In the middle of tho up
per side an inch and a half in diame
ter In which are to be drilled small
holes In this side seven ten or moro
strings of very fine gut are stretched
over bridges I at each cud like the
bridges of a fiddle and screwed up or
relaxed with screw pins
Tho strings should all be tuned
to tho same note and tho instrument
be placed In some current of air
where tho wind can pass over Its
strings with freedom A window tho
width of which Is equal to the length
of tho harp with tho sash just raised
to give the air admission Is a proper
situation When tho air blows upon
Ilio strings of the harp with different
Degrees of force It will excite different
degrees of sound sometimes tho blast
brings out all the tones In full concert
and sometimes It sinks to the softest
murmurs
How to Make Peanut Dolls
Very odd and funny and Instructive
little dolls can be made from peanuts
You may have an Indian chief squaw
and little papoose John Chinaman a
Japanese lady Dutch woman Norman
peasant woman with high white cap a
witch In peaked hat and red cloak
a wizard arrayed In star trimmed
cloak and high hat a Hindoo Yogi
with white turbaned head a gypsy
and many other characters In this
Jolly company
The peanuts aro threaded whole
upon coarso white twine through tho
length of tho nuts Very short nuts
aro used for feet and hands and tho
round single nuts for tho heads A
thick peanut forms tho body or If
more bulk is required use two Long
slender nuts form the arms and legs
Now for the wigs For tho Orientals
use horsehair or the hair filling of a
cushion gluo the locks In place and
then fasten on the head covering
Now rope If combed out fine will
make a splendid flaxen wig by color
Ing It you can have an auburn or
brown tint Fasten this wealth of hair
with a Jaunty bow Outline the feat
ures with Ink The wigs of the wiz
ard and tho yogi should bo white
use cotton picked out fluffy and gluo
In place so It will fall long over the
flnouhlers and mako flowing beards
Material for the dresses can be of
rum or crepe paper In gay colors or
from tho scrap bag The garb of tho
Chinaman will he silk cut the lea
garments from paper patterns tho
shoulders are naturally YOn narrow
Gilt paper will bo very useful to
help decorate tho gypsy and yogi
dresses
It Is only half tho lun to make
and dress the o curious little figures
They can bo made to act on a minia
ture stage like little puppets Phila

The American Jack Tar
The Jack tar of all countries Is a
jovial happygo lucky follow over
ready for a game or for sports of any
kind and the American manowars
man Is no exception to the rule A
favorite amusement among tho
United States sailors Is of all things a
pleeatlng contest With hands behind
their backs the contestants kneel
around a table and a pie on a tin
dish Is placed before each man The
pie consists of two layers of pastry
on a round tin platter with apples
rhubarb peaches mince meat or what
not between them and as It Is baked
on the platter tho lower layer sticks
tightly It Is most comical to watch
tho mens faces as they wrestle with
the sticky crust or endeavor to swal
i low a terrifically hot fragment of
I fruit The man who first disposes of
his pie Is of course decided the win
ner and It Is considered a distinction
to bo declared a pie eating champion

Tho Cat and tho Rooster were visit
Ing In the back yard They would
have visited In the front yard but the
Lady would not allow It
I am getting tired of being bossed

What Is the trouble now Inquired
the Cat
Nothing more than usual was tho
reply But just tho same I am tired
of It all and If Sho dont stop shoo

What would you do laughed the
CatI
I would do lots of things if I
dared said tho Rooster flapping his
wings In the first place Id scratch
all tho covering off tho bulb beds But
I dare not do that as Id be caught
sure and I might be served up for a
Sunday dinner for the minister in or
der to keep me from making further
raidsThat
That would be a joke on tho min
ister mewed the Cat
The Rooster was so angry that the
Cat should think him tough that he
flow up on the fence and crowed
three times as loud as ho could
For several minutes not a word was
said by either tho Cat or tho Rooster
Finally the Cat apologized and tho
Rooster flew down and the two wero
soon on friendly terms again
All of a sudden a brilliant Idea
I
struck the Cat Ill tell you what
well do ho said Wo will run away I
and go to tho woods and gather nuts
and havo a line time with no ono to
shoo you or scar me
Agreed exclaimed the Rooster
and they started
It was almost dark when tho woods

his wings up he went tho Cat scaling
the tree after him
All about the tree In which tho
Rooster and the Cat had taken refugo
It grew dark and still it seemed they
J
I were In another world from that In
which they had lived all their lives
Tho Roosters head soon began to bob
and then ho was fast asleep with only
tho Cat on watch
Away oft to tho right came a weird
screech To tho loft was another and
from tho front and rear came other
screeches Unbeknown to the Rooster
and the Cat they had selected tho
nightly gathering place of a flock of
hoot owls
I hear something awful whispered
the Cat
The Rooster drew down his head
closer but did not reply

said the Cat In a louder tone at tho
same time scratching the Rooster on
tho comb to awaken him
Hoot Hoot Hoot came the call
of tho little owls
The evil ono Is abroad In these
woods groaned the Rooster now
awake to his danger
Again came tho call of the owls and ±
tho Cat started down the tree 4
Whore aro you going asked the
Rooster
Home called back tho Cat and
the Rooster flow down and started
tooIt
It was very late when two animals
could have been seen crossing a ladys
front yard on their way to a friendly
barn and coop Both wero footsore r
and weary Both staggered as they
walked But their trials wero not yet
ended Tho barn door was closed and t >
the coop was locked
Poor old runaway Rooster Poor old
runaway Cat Until daybreak they sat
on the fence In tho once muchabused
back yard and shivered shivered
with cold and whispered to each other
about the awful sounds they heard in
tho woods
But that was a long long time ago
and now thoro Is no happier Rooster
or Cat in all tho wide world than tits
pair who onco became angry at a Lady
who said shoo to tho Rooster and
