[47-4t Rrng ynour Joh Work to The Times eif ice Strange Anmal Friendship. Pathetic instances are told of strange friendships between animals in cap tivity. A curious incident occurred in New Orleans some years ago, when a bear was lowered into the cage of an old African lion. The keepers sup posed it would be torn to pieces, and many people assembled to see the bar barous exhibition. The bear at once assumed the offensive and rushed at the lion, but, to the amazement of the onlookers, the lion, hitherto regarded as extremely savage and dangerous, placed his paw upon the bear's head as if to express his pity and tried to make friends with him. Taking the bear under his protection, the lion suffered no one to approach the cage and did not sleep until he was exhausted, so closely did he watch over his new friend. He even allowed him to share his food. The two animals would lie down side by side, the lion usually with a pro tective paw over the bear. His delight in companionship was manifested un mistakably, and his captors were hu mane enough to let the two share the same cage.-Kansas City Independent Powdering the Hair. In 1795 the mayor of Yarmouth, England,. issued the following procla mation: ."Owing to the present enor mous price of corn and the alarming apprehension of a scarcity in that most necessary article, many towns through out the kingdom have set the laudable example of leaving off for a time the custom of wearing powder in their hair, by which means a great quantity of wheat must infallibly be saved to the nation, and If the price be not re duced It may at least be prevented from increasing. We, therefore, the mayor, justices and principal inhab itants of Great Yarmouth, do recom mend the example as worthy imitation, and we flatter ourselves the military will not hesitate to adopt it, being fully convinced that appearances are at all times to be sacrificed to the pub lic weal, and that in doing this they will really do gcod." Four Great Musicians. Palestrina was a revolutionist in his day, but is now virtually obsolete even for the severest classicists. Gluck was as radical an innovator as Wagner, yet't is only occasionally and with dif ficulty that one of his works can now be briefly resuscitated. Beethoven Was a madman even to many of the best musicians as late as 1805, when, as that musical veteran, Professor Haupt, himself said, the "Fifth Symphony" was rehearsed in Berlin for the first time, and the orchestra dashed the music from the racks, declaring it was crazy and could never be played. Now this same "Fifth. Symphony" is consid ered a model of form, and its composer is the cherished idol of conservatives and classicists. Pity For Western Nations. The Chinese enjoy the greatest liber ty. The laws of the western nation are too numerous and too severe. Instances of their bondage may be given. All the children in the country are bound to at tend school -at a certain age. When an author wants to print a book, he has to ask for a copyright. Before a man can start a newspaper he must apply for a certificate from his government sanc tioning him to do so. There are fixed regulations governing all companies and firms. All marriages must be re ported to a certain department for reg istration. Thus. there is no liberty be tween husband and wife.-Peking Sin Pao. Miniature Trees. The Japanese art of making minia ture landscapes and gardens consists chiefly in starring the plant so as to retard the circulation of its sap or life gvng juices. Furguson, who was one among the first of English adventurers to visit China and Japan, mentions the fact that he saw at Canton "a boxe about the bigness of a ladyes snuffe box, which did not containe a littyl dirt and sixteen finy littyl-trees, foure of which were in full blow, the whole boxe, trees and all so small that a man could put them in hys mouth togeth Transeaucasia. Transcaucasia grows almost every known grain in the world. The forests of the Caucasian mountain range pro duce saffron, madder, oak, walnut and boxwood lumber, while apples, pears and grapes grow wild in these forests to such an extent that they are export ed in large quantities. The wine of Caucasla is also exported, and the cot ton of the country is second only to that of Egypt. Gold and siver Beetles. The most remarkable gold beetles in the world are found in Central Ameri ca. The head and wing cases are bril liantly polished with a luster as of gold itself. To sight and touch they have all the appearance of that metal. Oddly enough, another species from the same region looks like solid silver freshly burnished. H~is Dearest. Wife-Do you love me as much as ever? Husband-I reckon so. Wife-Will I always be the dearest thing in the world to you? Husband-I am sure you~ will unless the landlord raises the rent. How she Felt. "How do you feel after your ordeal?" asked the fair divorcee's friend as they came down the courthouse steps. "Feel?" repeated she, with a gurgle of triumph. "I feel completely un mannedl"-Houston Post. The question of who founded Rome isn't half so interesting-as the identity of the gentleman who. made her howL Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. Save the Childres. Ninety-nine of every one hundred di seases that children have are due to disorcers of the stomach, and these dis orders are all caused by indigestion. Kool Dyspepsia Cure is just as good for children as it is for adults. Children thrive on it. It keeps their little stom achs sweet and encourages their growth and developement. Mrs. Henry Carter, 705 Central St., Nashville. Tenn.. says: "My little boy is now three years old and has been sutfering fromi indigestion ever since he was born. I have had the best doctors in Nashville. but failed to do him any good. A fte r using one bot tle of Kodol he is a well baby. I rec commend it to all suf~er'ers." Kodol digests what you eat and makes the stomach sweet. Sold by The R. B. Lor yea Drug Store.

E. JE] 1 802 JuisInteOl|as Jand riedI itei to tDay ude' gentle mode of persuasion fine and im prisonment were resorted to. The jury that acquitted Sir Nicholas Throck morton was condemned to eight months' imprisonment in addition to the payment of a large sum of money. In the reign of Queen Elizabeth a jury, having reduced a prisone'r's alleged crime of murder to that of manslaugh ter, was at once sent to prison and bound over in a large sum to be of good behavior. Penalties were like wise inflicted upon the innocent wife and children of the offending jurymen. Even now it is believed by some legal authoriti.es that a judge has the right to indlict a fne upon a juoryman refus ing to obey his directions. Such power is, however, not exercised except in the case of a juror absenting himself with out a justiniable cause. Of this prac tice there is the following story: A judge had fined a juryman for nonat tendance. On hearing that he had been unable to be present because of his wife's funeral the judge, whose wife was said to be not of a particularly gentle nature, exclaimed: "Has he? That was a goodhexcuse Indeed. I wish we all had the same!" The Dog In Egypt. In Egypt the dog was a friend and faithful servant. He lived in the house with his master, followed him in his walks, attended the public ceremonies, sometimes free, at other times held in leash by a slave or child or in .princely families by a favorite dwarf. At his meals he had his place marked under the benches of the guests. As in Greece and Rome, he was there to dis pose of bones, the fragments of meat and the pieces of bread that were thrown down and in a general way to keep the dining room clean. These were certainly not: very refined fashions, and if our house dogs had to satisfy them selves inl this way they would be likely to die of hunger. The ancients did not feel the delicate tastes and disgusts in such matters that we esperience. Their life present ed excessive refinements and rude fea tures of which we have no idea side by side. The touse dog In Egypt was a domestic, working at his trade, only his trade was one in which we have ceased to employ him. The Cry of the Loon. The cry of the loon is one of the strangest, weirdest sounds In nature. Those who have heard it can scarcely wonder that it has so often been woven into song and legend. A blood red ring hung round the moon, Hung round the moon. Ah. me! Ah, me! I heard the piping of the loon, A wounded loon. Ah. me! And yet the eagle feathers rare L trembling, wove in my brave's hair. Almost all writers who have attempt ed to describe the cry of this bird have likened it to unmirthful laughter. Thus Mr. Vernon Bailey, speaking of the sound, describes it as follows: "On ly on the lonely lake In the heart of the woods do you get the startling thrill of the loon's wild cry-one clear, piercing note or a long, quavering, demoniacal laugh that to the timid suggests a herd of screaming panthers." Quite Unlike. "Why, George, what an enormous pile of letters!" exclaimed the bride of a week. "Billets doux, I suppose." "No, my dear," replied the other half of the sketch.
