This great, feathered wanderer, sometimes meas uring 17 f-Ht from tip to tip of his wings, will follow a ship for days at a time. Some travelers and sailors ileebtro flint they have seen a partic ular bird fly for weeks at a time with out ever being seen to alight upon the waves. It not only follows tho ship, but wheels In great circles around It and above it. high In the air. as if to show that it Is not tired. Sometimes the bird will l seen to hang in the air with its wines apparently motionless, nr.d the sailors say that then It is asleep. Not only In pleasant wpfithT will the albatross follow a ship for day and weeks, but tl.rounh the most ter rific storm it will continue its untir b'K fllt-M.

' ' T' gt!rlly, tUe old belief about the at bairoM had beeu furgnuen by the nailora aud explorer, but In their Ions ar.d lomnome voyages over waters which were cut by no keel but their own, anil upon whono vast x parse they saw no other salt but theirs, the present of the albatross fiillowInK the tdilp day after day be rsme a great source of comfort and companionship. So It came to be a belief that 111 luck would follow any one who killed one of tlieno birds; und that belief la common among seafaring men lo this very 1uy. Coleridge's funioun "llhynie of the Ancient Mariner," Is baaed up on this belief. Though the superstition nhnut the killing of an albatross bring bad luck is only a foolish one, It has serv ed a useful pnrpoHo for rouny years In preventing the slaughter of theso beautiful and gallnnt birds the sail or's frleuds and the landsmen's won der. I'p In dreary Kamchatka, that out lying part of Siberia which cuts Into the North Pacific, tho uutlvus. never having heard of the superstition about the albatross, catch him und cut him. Hut his flesh makes such poor food that, after all. tho legond may be said to hold good, for ho Is, Indeed. In bud luck who has to make a meal of It. Parlor Trirk With a Csne. Dnlnnee n cano on tho back of a chair, so that the slightest touch sets Attracting the Card. It to wavering. Then tell your friends that you can make it fall from the chair without touching it in any wa; ir even blowing at It. Although no one will believe you, It is a very simple thing to do. Get a postal card and rub it very briskly on a woolen cloth till it is thoroughly magnetized. Then hold it near one end of the cane, which will slowly turn toward it. By holding the card below this end of the cane you will attract it downward until It overbal ances and falls to the floor. Snake's Tail. (Snake's Tail is a game played by any number of persons, one of whom Is selected as catcher, and the others form in single file to represent a snake, tho last player being called the snake's tail. Each player In the Mle places his hands on the shoulders of the one in front of him. At the opening of the game the catcher stands about 20 feet from the head of tho file, facing him, and at the signal tries to catch the tail without pushing any one In the row. The snake defends its tail by moving about In any way, but if the row breaks itself It is a foul, and the tail is considered as caught. When the tail is caught, he becomes catcher in turn, and the catcher takes this place at the head. Another way of playing the game is to allow tho catcher to name any one in the row as the one he intends to catch. If he catches the one named, they change positions. The player at the head of the line may stretch out his hands to impede the catcher's progress, but is not allowed to push him. How Whales Get Food. To obtain food the whale swimR through tho water with its mouth open. The water pours in me niiei- ture. and carries with It hundreds or small fish and marine animals. The water escapes through the sides of the mouth, but the fish are caught and held by a row or sun bonelike objects along the side of the jaws. These are whalebones, so use ful in commerce. These and the oil fiiimd in the elands of tho throat make tho whale very valuable. There are several varieties of ulmles. hut the snerm whale, though the smallest, Is the most valuable. Candle Trick. How would you arrange, with a room full of people, to place a candle in surh a position that all but one would see it. and that person must not bo blindfolded?

Necessity knows a whole lot of lore. Before marriage, the suitor pays at tentions to his wife-to-be. Afterward, ,io pays attention. Tho average husband would prefer it that his wife pay more attention to '.its meals than to his morals. Woman may not bo able to throw i stone successfully, but she's an ulcpt at handling the rocks. I am not the only bachelor on the block. Further down the Btrcot I can see a pair of feet on the windowslll. Distance lends enchantment to the view. I know a woman who Is happy becauso her husband Is in the Philip pines. What's the difference? Women be lieve in fables wherein money Is con- crned, and men in fabulous tales of money. I can always tell when there's a new boarder arrived at the house. There were roses on the breakfast ta ble to-day.

The destructive tree borer so well known to horticulturists as tho Flat headed apple tree borer and lo ento molugltits as ChrjsolKithrls feuioriita U found In all parts of tho country and annually destroys vast number of trees. It attack apple, peat, uulr.ee, plum, peach, cherry, ash, elm, niuplo, box-elder, sycamore and willow J trees. The Injury Is done by tho Hat headed borer during It grub or larval stago. The adult Ini-ect I a beetle about, half aa Inch long, ilattlsh idi long In form, ishluy grocti!sh -black above and copper colored below. The femulo deposit her eggs In thu crev ices of the bark of tho trunk and main branches, usually on tho south or southwest side, whero tho tii'ei ts of tho sun upon thu tree Is greatest. In our locality the most of tho eggs tiro probably laid during April and May. Although eggs are sometimes deposited by this Insect upon healthy, Pin 8. CTnnnhnWirl femorata: a, larva; h liovtlo; f , lieiid of uiuli'i d, pupa twico UUt' urul blzu (original). well-established treeR, It evidently prefers to select sickly or newly transplanted tines, especially those whese bark has been Injured by ex posure to the sun. The eggs hatch within a fow days after being depos ited. The young larva soon eats through the bark and proceeds to bore at some depth beneath the surface, leaving behind it a flattened channel. Sometimes a single borer will girdle a ttee and cause Its death. The larva reaches Its full growth by the end of the cummer, being then a palo-yollow-Ish grub about half an Inch long, with a broud, flat head. During the winter It remains quiescent. The next spring It bores out nearly through the bark, then moves back a little and under goes Its change into the adult beetle form the transformation being com pleted in about t,hree weeks. The beetle then cuts iui opening through the bark and escapes to continue the work of destruction begun by its an cestors. During tho warm part of the day it may be seen flying about in ho hot sunlight. There ore three ways of combat ting the borer: (1) by destroying tho grubs while they ore at worlc in the tree; (2) by the application of some substance that will prevent the eggs being deposited or will destroy the epgs and newly hatched larvae, and (3) by wrapping the trees with some thing that will prevent the females gaining access to the bark. But, by the best methods known, borers are difficult Insects to combat. The larvae make their way Into the wood so soon after the eggs are deposited and keep so pompletely out of sight as they work, that they may do ranch injury before their presence Is sus pected, and are difficult to kill when detected. It Is a case where an ouiico of prevention is most decidedly more effective and more economical than a pound of cure. Arizona Station. Is Seedless Fruit Fertilized? For some time there hns been a be lief that seedless fruit is developed without fertilisation by the pollen. There have been experiments carried on to determine this and it was thought that the experiments were re liable. Without doubt the men that did the work believed that the fruit was unfertilized and were entirely sincere In their expressions In that regard. In South Australia, however, Rome very elaborate Investigations liavo been put on foot to discover If tho Zante currant, the well-known Heedless current, was produced with out the Intervention of fertilizing pnK-esses. In a word It is decided by tho experimenters there that the cur rant, thouch apparently seedless, Is the product of fertilizing processes. At first experiments were made to produce seedless currants by remov ing the pollen a few days before it was leady to be precipitated into the ovules. This work the experimenters did w ith the pr atest of care, but in the nd pri.tiniit.e-d It Impossible lo do tho work so carefully that a If..' e rains of pri'.Vn would not ret into the ovules of tb? fruit.

Ttetwecn the years J 7!)0 and 1M0 In numerable plans were made for the creation of turnpikes In the United States. -There had been one great success, (he Lancashire turnpike in Pennsylvania, and then came count less other projects. In 1811 New York had 137 churtered roads, with u total length of 4,Ci)0 miles and the sum re .iui red to build them amounted to $7. 5(1(1000. An era of canal digging mi l then of railroad building followed this period, but tho canal promoters and railroad men ';ad great difficulty in advancing their schemes. They were considered insane when they insisted that the mountains and plains could bo conquered by these means of trans portation. Passengers Carried by Women. A traveler In France in the early part of the nineteenth century de scribes his landing at Boulogne by means of a small boat as follows: "The boat rowed toward the nearest snore until It ran aground, which hap pened In the midst of the breakers. In an Instant tho boat was surrounded by a throng of women up to tlult middles and over, who were there lo carry us on shoro. Not being aware of these maneuvers. w did not throw ourselves Into the arms of these sea nymphs so readily as we might hnve done, whereby Ihoso who sat l'i; the stern of the boat were deluged with tei spray." . n No Drug Store Treating Habit.
