Why Do Bears Bite Trees?
A bear never gets tired," said a Pike
county man full of the subject that has
made that corner of the Keystone State
somewhat famous. "No one ever saw
a tired bear. A bear will travel 100
miles over the roughest kind of ground
and through swamps and thickets with
out ever thinking of resting, if bard
pressed, and be just as fresh for another
100 miles as he was when he started on
"If he has time he will sit down once
in a while to take a bite to eat, as the
hunter can see if he is following Bruin
in a crackling snow. This and the cu
rious custom that the bear has of turn
ing off his course wLen traveling, wheth
er the dogs and hunters are after him or
not, and going to certain trees on one or
other side of his course, where he bites
viciously at the trunk until the splinters
fly, are the only digressions he makes
from his route.
"The habit of biting trees in this way
while traveling has never been satisfac
torily explained. The trees may be two
rods or they may be half a mile or more
off of the bear's line of travel, but no
bear passing tha. way ever fails to sheer
off to them and bite off a piece, unless
he is too closely pressed by the dogs or
hunters. Any old woodsman can take
you in the woods to trees of that kind
that are almost bitten in two by bears
that have stopped and chewed in obedi
ence to the custom.
"The bears must have some reason or
purpose, of course, in picking out certain
trees to be visited and bitten, but what
it can be no one knows, any more than
why bears never fall on coming out of
their winter sleeping quarters in the
spring to rise, full length, against some
particular tree, reach up as far as they
can along the trunk and scratch a mark
in the bark with their claws.
"Natives of the bear country say that
Bruin does this to see whether he has
grown any since he holed up in the fall,
while others declare it is a challenge to
other bears as a test of their higb-seach-ing
powers in competition. Perhaps
neither is right." N. Y. Sun. .

addressed audiences In England, Swe

In Africa and the far east Every
where the charm of her womanhood
won her admiration, and when the alli
ance met In Stockholm three years ago
she was called all over Scandinavia
"America's uncrowned queen."
Mrs. Catt Is an orator as well as or
ganizer and a teacher of the suffrage

How the Little Old Boot Seller Was
Befriended by Queen Mary.
The kindliness and consideration
shown by Queen Mary recently en
deared her still more to the hearts of
the British public. Some time ago a
firm of boot sellers, which for years
had enjoyed royal patronage, dismiss
ed their manager for no other reason
than that he was too old.
He set up for himself in a small shop
In a southwestern suburb and was
hugely surprised and delighted when
It was indicated to him that Queen
Mary had heard of his dismissal and
had resolved to transfer her patron
age to him. And now the tiny shop

gorgeous premises from which the
manager had been dismissed.
Removing Fruit Stain.
Fruit stains are now in order, and
two expert housekeepers have come
forward with suggested remedies not
generally known and yet labor saving.
The first is pure glycerin. The stain
Is to be moistened with It before the
Rrticle stained Is sent to the laundry.
It Is claimed to be quite effectual, and
20 cents' worth of glycerin ought to
last a year.
The other remedy Is spirits of cam
phor, applied as soon as possible or be
fore the stain is wet with water or sent
to the laundry.
Snap Fasteners For Neckwear.
The fashionable high standing col
lars and ruches may be made remova

collar into the neck of the dress sew
suaps every two or three inches along
the .facing of the neckpiece and the
corresponding parts at equal distances
on the neck of the dress. In this way
a neckpiece may be quickly trans
ferred to another dress or' taken off

or packed in a suit case.

Sailing from London for America my
baggage was carried on board by a
steward. One of my pieces a wicker
extension case had no mark on It, but
finding one exactly like mine I carried
it to my stateroom. ,
I had no occasion to Jook into this
case till we bad been out half the voy
age, or four days. When I did I met
with a surprise. It was filled with
articles used by a woman. Realizing
that I bad changed baggage with some
one, I looked over the contents to dis
cover a name or something by which
I might return it to Its owner and get
mine. Here again I met with a sur
prise. I found no mark, but came
upon numerous little boxes containing
Jewels which were evidently very val
uable. Here was a subject for a job
Had the lady placed the jewels there
merely to convey them, or did this
placing them in a frail and unlocked
receptacle Indicate that she intended
to smuggle them into America? Had
they come into my possession through
an error, or was I to be used as the
smuggler? A11 the thinking 1 did on
the matter did not solve it. The only
thing I could do was to go to the pur
ser and If any one notified him of the
loss of a wicker extension case to let
me know. The ship having been out
four days and no one having reported
such a loss, the inference seemed to
be either that the lady, supposing that
Bbe had her own case, had not exam
ined its contents or well, the only
other supposition was that she would
use me for a purpose. 1 must await
The trip was a pleasant one to me,
for I made some agreeable acquaint
ances. There were a Mrs. Harbeson
and her daughter aboard, who sat a
great deal on deck. A gentleman who
was with them at times I met in the
smoking room. - We fell to talking one
day about the run of the ship and
thus became acquainted. Passing the
ladles I have mentioned while he was
with them, he made a remark to me
which led to an introduction to his
friends. The mother was quite cor
dial, but the daughter seemed a trifle
ill at ease. However, since she was a
pretty girl I labored to make myself
entertaining and succeeded in doing
away somewhat with her embarrass
ment or whatever it might be.
I was too circumspect to say a word
to any one about my find. I left the
Jewels where they were in the case,
which I shoved under my berth. Not
knowing what trouble I might get Into
In the matter, I preferred, if accused,
to be able to take any position that
might be for the best. But my inten
tion was to tell the truth.
The day before reaching port I con
cluded that I must take some action
with reference to the goods, which I
did not doubt had either been stolen
or were to be smuggled, or both, and,
going to my stateroom and locking
the door, I pulled out the extension
case and lifted the top. .What was my
astonishment to see that it contained
my own belongings and did not con
tain any other property.
There was a mystery Indeed. How
the Jewels came Into my possession
I did not know; how they left me I did
not know. But it was evident that
two exchanges had been made, and,
the second one having been purposely
accomplished, it was evident that some
game was going on. But it seemed to
me now that I should never receive an
explanation of the incident. Neverthe
less I felt relieved-that the property
had passed out of my possession. In
deed, I had about made up my mind
before leaving the ship to turn it over
to the purser.
The Harbesons, Mr. Etheri(Jge. the
man who Introduced me to them, and
I all made rapid progress in becoming
mtlmate and before reaching port
agreed, that -we should meet on the
evening of our arrival for dinner at a
certain uptown restaurant. We bid
each other goodby at the dock at noon,
and at 7, attired in dinner costume, I
met my friends in a private dining
room. I was received cordially, espe
cially by the ladies, and after getting
warmed up with wine Mrs. Harbeson
said to me:
"I have something to tell you pro
vided you will promise to take no ad
vantage of it" ' ,
I Tooked at her sharply. It struck
me at once that she knew something
about my find on shipboard. . I made
the required promise. .
"My daughter and 1," said the lady,
"have done a good deal of smuggling,
not for profit, but to save money on
what we bring" from abroad. We stop
ped at the same hotel as you In Lon
don. Believing that we were suspect
