How Partridges Roost. Among the habits of the partridge, one is that when a covey is roosting on the ground, with their tails buDched together in a circle, the bunch is sur mounted by a line of watchful heads like sentinels on duty. Another is that they run the instant the ground is touched after a "nusn," tne dogs oiten trailing them in rabbit-hunting fashion. Their sense of smell is evi dently very acute, for during the nest- wnich number The Old Homestead. One of the notable events of the present theatrical season will be the re turn to the opera house of Denman Thompson's play, "The Old Home stead. " In this contribution to the 6tage, Mr. Thompson has proven him self to be in the front rank of modern authors, and has brightened, by his work, the thoughts, and, may be, the lives, of many of hi6 auditors. The story of the play need not be retold. I Suffice that it is familiar to every one. The cast is in careful hands, the double quartett and the choir of twenty voices, augmented by the cathedral chimes, render sweetest music, that will linger in memory whenever the thoughts revert back to Uncle Josh and "The Old Homestead." The play will be presented at the opera house tomorrow night. PHIL YOUNG'S. 1VT. O. A.

The running and light exercise will do this for me. I won't box or punch the bag for at least two weeks, as I want to give my sore knuckle a good rest before us ing it. It is all right now, the swell ing has gone down. " '1 don t know who will train or sec ond me yet, as Martin Julian may be prevented from eoing with me on ac count of his mother's serious illness. At the present time I weigh about 168 pounds, and I will be but a few pounds lighter on March 17 when I enter the ring." Jack Stelzner who is now In Frisco will probably join Fitz again. W Stuart is now working for a "bifflnir match" between Maher and Sharkey and sent the following telegram to One-Eyed-Quinn, Maher's financial manager: ''Are you willing fcr Maher to nght Sharkey about March 17, if agreeable to Sharkey?" Stuart then wired a red hot telegram into Lynch, Tom Sharkey's manager, which read as follows: How about Sharkev tneetins Maher about March 17, providing al ways that Maher is willing? Answer." It is very likely that a match between Maher and Sharkey will be shaped up. If so, the fight will be pulled off after the big fellows settle their little dis pute and decide which one is to walk away with the $15,000 parse and the belt. There will be no curtain raisers. Corbett and Fitzsimmons will get next to each other on March 17, according to the present programme, and the lesser events will follow in their re gular order. Cofbett has got back in his old time form and is a strong favorite in betting circles. The pools now give 10 to 8 on Corbett and if his training is good it will run above that point. There is strong talk of a epecial party from Kl Paso going to Nevada, and they are now waiting for the rail roads to decide on rate9 so they can tell just how to figure on costs. It is estimated that the round trip from Cbicaeo will be $65, but as the West ern Passenger association has not met yet nothing definite can be learned. The association will probably meet and decide on a rate at an early date. Corbett will either train in Nevada or California and is making prepara tions to move west in a few days. Sports are desirous for him to train in Nevada so that the state will reap all the benefits possible for the "free state" law. from ten to twenty, are disturbed in any way, or a hand even inserted in the nest, it will be immediately de serted and a new one built. A short time previous to the nesting the males are often involved in desperate com bats for the choice of mates, who stand by and quietly watn the encounter, seeming not to care which one becomes the victor. The incubation is per formed entirely by the female, the male, when not feedine", often being perched ou some slight elevation, en couraging her by his mellow-toned call of "bob white." Two, and sometimes three, broods of young are reared dur ing a season, tne nesting beginning as early as May 1. Later in the fall the broods of young occasionally join forces but whether from a want of company or for protection is not Known. When feeding tne birds are some times scattered several yards apart, but at the first sign of danger an alarm is given, and they immediately "bunch," with their heads placed close together, as if in consultation, lhe first shot in to a covey will often cause them to break and lly in all directions, and if not disturbed again for several minutes "scatter calls" will be heard on every side. These are made to collect the re maining birds, who again bunch. Many of the market gunners seem to have no qualms of conscience; and very often kill without hesitation an entire covey, when at least one or two pairs of birds should be left for breeders. The gen eral opinion of the sportsmen of Dor Chester county is that a precaution against the wholesale butchery of a covev should have a place in the code of laws for the protection of Maryland game. .Baltimore bun. A Rigid Interpretation. The street car company has been notified by Collector Bauche that the cars can run on the Mexican side only between 7 a. m., and 9 p. m. The rail way management does not see any good reason for thus putting the brakes on, and incline to the belief that the shutting off passes has some thing to do with the rigid interpreta tion of the law. This new order will work inconvenience to more than one class of people, but the company pro poses to saw wood and say notnmg. Too much Seeley investigation has driven William Mcintosh of New York insane and heisnowinan asylum. He has a very handsome daughter, Hazel, who, until a short time ago, earned 97 a week in a store. She can dance and sing, and recently accepted the offer of a theatrical agent to give exhibitions at private dinners. Then she put con siderably more than $7 a week in the bank. Since the Seeley sensation the father has been acting strangely. He read every word of the stuff that was published in the papers here, then hunted around inquiring about the de tails that did not appear in print. The other day he tore up a lot of $10 bills his daughter earned. Then he began raving of her promising to appear in living picture poses at a dinner this week. 1 he mother took her daughter's part, and had him committed to an asylum. Time will tell you whether husband or wife is insane. Ocean Frozen Off Coney Island- For tne nrst time in years tne ocean is frozen off Coney Island. Ice has formed from close to the shore for quite a distance out to sea to the south ward of tne island, near oca liate, Norton's Point. -The . bell buoy. about a third of a mile Mora snore, was frozen fast in the iceh.is morn ing and was rigid. Iyj floes, long white masses of broken cakes of ice, were frozen into the smooth surface of the sea here and there. Gravesend Bay is completely frozen over from Norton's Point to Fort Hamilton, but the ice is not yet thick enough to make traveling on it sale. (Junously enough, the temperature at Coney Is land is from 4 to 5 degrees warmer than in New York City. At no time since the cold weather set in has the thermometer registered less than 10 degrees above zero there. Topjlobampo Victims. James Medsker, who was among the number of Americans who took up their residence at Topolobampo, the co-operative colony west of Chihuahua onjthe Pacific coast, a few years ago, has arrived at Chihuahua destitute and is seeking to get back to the United States. He states that the few colonists at that place are entirely without means of support and that they are suffering for food. 1 hey are bOO miles from a railway and have given up hope of returning to their old homes. The government cancell edconcessions un der which the colony was established and the members nave no special fav ors and privileges. The attention of United States Minister Ransom will be called to the condition of the colon ists.

So Mr. Gillman Brown, of 3-1 Mill St., South Gardner, Mass., was told by the doctors. His son had lung trouble following typhoid malaria, and he spent three hundred and seventy-five dollars w ith doctors who finally gave him up, saying: "Your boy wont live a month." He tried Dr. Kings New Dis covery, and a few bottles restored him to health and enabled him to go to work a perfectly well man. He says he owes ins present good health to use of Dr. King's New Discovery, and knows it to be the best in the world for lung trouoie. J.riai Dottles, free at W.
