THE FLY EATING PLANT.
A Cartons Operation of a Vegetabis De.
veuring Asmial Life.
One species of the droee has its leaves
rounded, while the other has theta elon
:ated. but both alike have them reddish
.n color and covered wit' short hairs or
tilamuents. At the end of each of these
.alrs there is an enlarged gland which
secretes a tiny drop of what appears to
be harntless dew Harmless, however, the
.iquid is out. for to most insects. espe
:ially small dies, the drosea is a most
tnsidionsly baited trap. The liquid is in
reality a sweet. sticky substance, and if
the very smallest fly does but touch it
ever so lightly it sticks there and dies.
The manner in which the plant after

flies it entraps is interesting in the ex

luckless insect until it is securely within
the grasp of the relentless plant. Each
gland then pours out upon the body a
digestive liquid, not altogether unlike
the gastric juice of animals, and in the
course of a day or two the fly is com
pletely digested. the nutritive parts have
been wholly absorbed by the plant and
the filaments have bent back to their
original position, ready to make another
capture upon the first opportunity.
If, however, the substance caught by
the leaf is of an indigestible nature,
such as a grain of sand or a piece of
stick blown by the winds on to the
glands, the leaf does not remain closed
more than a few hours. The number of
insects thus caught must be very great.

Good Advice on the Subject of Hats.
Some one has said that not one man in
a dozen knows flow to wear a dress coat.
and !t is quite at true that a large num
hr of individuals do not have any idea
now to wear a hat. One man can wear
his hat at the hack of his head and look
well dressed, while another having his
bat in that position would look as though
he were recovering from a protracted
round of dissipation. It is just the same
with the other positions, on the top of
the head, on either side or drawn over
the forehead. It is knowing how to wear
a hat which makes it look well, and the
knowledge often enables the poor man
to look more dressy in a cheap hat than
his richer neighborin a much more cost
The time the knowledge is a saving
one is when buying a hat. A good sales
man will take care that a customer gets
a bat that will fit him when worn in the
position which is most becoming to that
inlividual, but unless this is taken care
of by either purciazser or salesman there
will be little satisfaction from the pur
chase and the hat will probably bW w off
at the smallest provocation. A h.t that
fits and is worn right seldom blo. s of.
