L Finley, the new naturalist photographer, writes in the Country Calendar of his experience on Three Arch Rocks, off the Oregon coast, as follows: “By far the commonest birds on the rocks are the California murres. They nest up and down the sides of the cliff, wherever the ragged rock furnishes a footing. There Is not the least sign of a nest, but the single egg Is deposited wherever there Is a niche to keep It from dropping Into the sea. The peculiar top sliupe of the murre’s egg is a unique device to keep it from rollir.g. The practical value of this can be seen every day on the sloping eTl&es. We tried sev eral experiments with these eggs, and found they were of such taper that not one rolled over tlie edge. When they were started down grade, they did not roll straight, but swung around like a top and came to a standstill four or five inches down. The eggs were tough shelled, and a sharp push sent one only about nine Inches be fore It whirled around on its vertical axis.” Force of Habit. Until 18!»8, when the railroad was built, all communication with a llttlo frontier town on the Rainy River, In Canada, had never even seen a loco motive. When t lie railroad was fin ished and the first engine came puf fing Into tho little town, a tall, manly looking lad stepi d out of the crowd that was watching the approach of the train and called out to the engi neer. “Throw me tbe line and I'll snub her for you.” Valuable Accomplishments. This ability to bring the best that is In you to the man you are trying to reach, to make a good Impression at the very first meeting, to approach a prospective customer as though you had known him for years without <sf fending his taste without raising the least prejudice, but getting his sym pathy and good will, is a great accom plishment, and this is what commands a great salary. —Success Magazine. $5,000 Reward will be paid to any person who enn find one atom of opium, chloral, morphine, cocaine, ether or chloroform in any form in any of Dr. Miles’ Remedies.
