TEACHING A SHEPHERD DOG.
How He Is Trained by the Natives of New N'exico. The natives of New Mexico seem to have an original way of training shop herd dogs. A pup is taken from its mother as soon after birth u: possible (the breed of deg is Immaterial). The young of a sheep or goat is taken away, and the pup is substituted. After the llrst lew days the pup Is never fed except just before the ilock goes to pasture in the morning, and Just after the sheep are brought in at night. As soon as he can walk he goes out with the flock and stays with it all day. Whenever he begins to antici pate suppe • by trying to drive the flock in before sundown he gets pun ished. After he Is about a year old he takes a Hock out, guards them from other dogs and coyotes during the day, and brings them In at the proper time at night without supervision. All kinds or temptations can he tried on any dog that Is encountered In the hills with his flock, but in spite of all he will remain faithful to Ills duty, driving his flock to a safe distance before ven turing to make the acquaintance of any other dog. PETROLEUM AS A BEVERAGE. Medical Society of Paris Sends Out a Warning. The Mod Iml Society of Paris has expressed the opinion that it is neces sary to adopt some measures against the alarming spread of petroleum drinking. At first It was thought that this habit had sprung up from the in creased taxation on alcohol imposed by the French government, but an in vestigation showed that this was not the case; the habit bad been preva lent some time previously in certain districts and had spread with great rapidity. The victim of the petroleum habit does not become brutal, only morose. Opinions differ among physi cians as regards the effects of petro leum drinking on the human system, but all agree on the hanufulncss of this new vice. Training German Soldiers. Marksmanship for men of the Ger man infantry, beginning with prelimi nary instruction, comprises range fir ing and lastly field or comhat firing. By ingenious methods the advance of reinforcements or the thinning of a line of infantry or the advance of a column of soldiers Is simulated. Hal loon targets are used to represent lines of sharpshooters lying in a trench. Inflation keeps them erect and when punctured by a bullet they soon collapse, showing the firing line that another enemy has fallen. The agility of sharpshooters is represented by a variety of targets which can bo made to pop up and down out of trenches and behind embankments at will. Other movable targets are at tached to sleds and drawn over the surface of the ground by steam power or by horses. Indian Carrie Nation. A Comanche Indian named Ne-to-ya ka has started a sort of Mrs. Carrie Nation crusade in southwest Okla homa. Until recently he has been a common, every day Indllan. but about a inontb ago he developed into a tem perance reformer, and Ills exhortation to tin* men and women of bis tribe has caused a great stir. He has shadowed bibulous Indians in I awton. and has a long list of names of men who sold liquor to them, which he has sent to United States Attorney Horace Speed. He has already caused the arrest ot C. L. Estes, who runs a saloon at Cache, and has sufficient evidence against him to convict. The penalty for selling liquor to Indians is very severe. Jackson’s Injunction Business. A Pittsburg business man who hap pened to be in Parkersburg one day this week met Judge Jackson at the state encampment of the West Vir ginia national guard. The judge, whose recent injunctions have caused much discussion, spoke freely on the subject anti expressed great amuse ment at the letters received different parts of the country. "Why,” he said, “people seem to think I am conducting a wholesale and retail business in injunctions of all kinds. A man In Chicago wrote to get an Injunction to restrain his neigh bor's big tom cat from annoying him!"—Pittsburg Dispatch. Pictures as Educating Influences. There are the unimaginative, une motional. matter-of-fact children, by no means lacking In Intelligence, to whom pictures are simply more or less comprehensible imitations of objects which they never see. but about which they hear, s&ys Municipal Affairs. Pictures Increase the wealth of their minds by adding to them new mental images of things which.were before represented only by meaningless words. A child's horizon widens when he can conceive, even indistinctly, of the bodily appearance of a waterfall, ft farming scene, an historical char ter or an ancient costume or city. Persian Tea Seller. The tea seller is a very common Bight in the streets of most Persian towns. He holds in his hands two large brass teapots. The larger is full of plain hot water, the smaller is .full of tea. The teacups are ar ranged in a narrow tray, which has the look of a wide, deep double belt. This tea Is prepared with odorous herbs and has a very pleasant frag rance. The seller advertises his tea loudly by crying In a singing voice in the streets: "Hot tea, sv«-j; tea; tea of crimson color!" EXAMPLE OF GERMAN THRIFT. Stones on the Roadway Made of Value to Property. Gormans And that it pays to encour age peasants to free their Aelds of stones; the property rises In value —taxing value. The stones thrown Into heaps by the roadside are pur chased by the district road repairing commission. Poor men, who other wise would have to be supported by the almshouses, are hired to break the stones, and then are trained to the work of repairing the roadbed. The money to pay the men is made by auc tioning off to the highest bidder the crop from fruit trees that were plant ed on both sides of the highway when It was built, and which are nourished -.veil by the manure that falls along the road and Is pushed at intervals by a road tender upon their roots. The purchaser of the crop sees to it that Ilia fruit is not stolen. The road commissioners have no bother noout that. And. although the sale bo by auction, it brings considerable. Every burgher knows how much because the sales of highvay fruit crops are pub lished in the local newspapers. TO GET RID OF MOSQUITOES. Amusing Circular Issued by New York Beard of Health. The New York hoard of health has issued a circular in which all cases of malaria are laid to the bite of mos quitoes. “Before going to bed.” this circular says, “one should kill all the mosquitoes resting on the bedroom walls, in the closets or under articles of furniture.” But how? Tae nights are now short. Possibly an athletic mnn might run down a mos quito and tie the critter till its tongue hangs out and its logs wabble. Then a single well directed blow on the point of the mosquito’s jaw would settle its hash. But some of us are not athletes. “The insects already In the room are apt to give the most trouble," the circular says naively. True! Too true! In fact, the mosquitoes which are in the bald-headed man’s flat, three flights it]), never trouble us in the least. German Soldiers’ Life. The German soldier is truined to maneuver in all weather and at all seasons. Extreme cold is. of course, a great obstacle to the mobilization of troops. Billeting Is not always possi ble and the alternative of sleeping in tents with the snow lying deep on the ground and the thermometer be low zero seems at first sight imprac ticable. Nevertheless, It has been found that, with due precautions, the men suffer no ill effects from the ex posure. The tents used for this pur pose are very small, as these are found to be warmer than the larger ones. Indeed, the temperature inside the canvass is generally 12 degrees higher than outside to begin with, and. of course rises when the tent is occu pied. Hot coffee is served to the men at intervals of two hours throughout the night. Wanted to Be Set Right. “You had n piece in your paper this morning.” said the caller, a man with one arm in a sling, a black eye, a ! skinned nose, and various pieces of i court plaster scattered over his face, “about a feller named Jones that tried ■ to make peace between a man and his I wife that was quarrelin’ and got all I bunged up by both of ’em pilin’ on I him." ’I believe we did,” responded the man in the chair. "Well, I'm the Jones that went into ! a mule's stall to curry the animal and got kicked all over the stable. I don’t want to be mixed up with the other one. I may be kind o’ keerless about ! imnln’ into danger sometimes, but I ! ain't no blamed fool. I wish you'd stiaighten It out in to-morrow morn in's paper." How Adam Would Act Now. "I sees.” said Brother Dickey, “dat one er de preachers is In trouble ’bout de sarpint what tempted Eve. Now, •lat's mighty fur back to go huntin' fer trouble, but I reekin Adam must feel lak reachin’ over an' shakin’ jnn's wid 'lm.

Cost of Discarded War Material. Some idea of the vast quantities of discarded war material thrown upon the general market by the successive c hanges in armament adopted by the various great powers may be gathered from the list of arms now offered for sale from this cause by the Italian government. The list includes 600.000 rifles adopted so recently as 1887. with 48,000.000 cartridges, 1.200 nine pound era and 500 seven-pounder guns, with 200,000 shells, and 170 seven-pounder ir.i untain guns, with 17,000 shells.

Che wai Persuaded to Try St. Jacob* Oil, and All Pain Disappeared Immediately.
