then stood back and gave the sparrows
a chance, and great was the slaughter

could not understand how these dum
my sparrows stood it unmoved, and
unhurt, while they wore falling by the
hundreds, and they seemed greatly to
resent the very idea that those birds
could live, while they by acting in the
very same way were dying in such
great numbers; and many of them
lest their valuable lives out of mere
bravado and jealousy. But quite a
number of them finally drew off in ut

then? I had to adopt a new plan. 1
cut off the oireult and observed the
situation. After a while one bird, ev
idently a stranger, came along and
perched on the wires, then one of my
watching crowd, then another, and
another, lit on the wire, and finally
there was a grand rush, and all sit

room, was consumed. Sudlenly the
current went on, and as suddenly the
whole crowd of sparrows passed to
that undiscovered country "from

He Had Noticed It.
Have you ever noticed that men
and their wives generally grow to
look alike after thay have been marr:
ed for a few years?"'
"Oh, yes. Both of them nearly al
ways have the same sad expression."
Chicago News.
We have also noticed that a fellows
mouth and his sweethearts mouth look
very much alike because they have
been together so much.
Premiums.
Although our prices are as low as the
lowest, to increase patronage, the
Howard Tailoring comnan.y of Chica
go, will give an American Suveroin
watch, or a high class, handsome um
brella, latest style handle, value 82.50
with each suit of clothes er overcoat,
bought of them. This does not change
price or quality, and a fit is guaran
teed. M. D. Hughe, Agt
