Christmas holidays, as they have been
for the past seventeen rears. Ever
since the occupation of this valley by
the military forces after the Custer mas
sacre-Basiniski Bros. store has been
the acknowledged emporium for holiday
goods. But this year, they propose to
distance all former efforts. Everyone
here knows their business status. It is
no secret that they have got to realize
on their stock, and that in a very short
time. It is to be a genuine "sacrifice

and under thes circumstances purchas

is still unbroken and covers everything
from a cheap toy to a diamond necklace.

The wonderful difference netween the
same landscape in winter and in summer
is a phenomenon familiar to all dwellers
in the temperate zones. The two treat
elements of change are the presence of
snow in winter and of leaves and grass
in summer. If we could look at our
globe from the moon, the variation in
its aspect due to seasonal changes would
perhaps be even mot , striking than it
appears to those upon its surface.
In fact, we sometimes lose sight of the
very important part which vegetation
plays in giving color to what might be
called the countenamnhe of the planet.
It is not the .nglh st forms of platon
that always produce the greatest efot et
in this way. Some of the most strikin,
scenes upon the earth owe their char.,c
teristic features to mosses and lichens.

That its broad expanses of forest and
prairie land cause the earth to reflect a
considerable quantity of green light to
its neighbors is indicated by the fact
that at the time of the new moon a
greenish tint has been detected over
spreading that part of the lunar surface
which is then illuminated only by light
from the earth.-Youth's Comlpani n.

A msak charmer can, by a simple mo
ton of his hand, make a moving snake
stop instantly. The reason is this:
The snake is a most timid animal. His
eyes, while dull to color and form, are
quick to motion, especially it it is rapid
If any large thing moves very quickly
too near him, he gets frightened and
scurrie off, while at certain distances
the motion stops him if he be moving.
He stops from astonishment, fear or
the wish to see what it is that moves.
Hence he glides on unconscious of the
charmer's presence near him so long as
the latter remains quiet; the snake does
not know him from a tree or a rock.
But when he gives a sudden evidence of
life the snake is astonished and immedi
ately remains stock still.
In India and Africa the charmers pre
tend the snakes dance to the music, but
they do not, for they never hear it. A
snake has no external ears, and perhaps
gives evidence of sound only through its
skin, when sound causes bodies in con
tact with him to vibrate.
They hear also through the nerves of
the tongue, but do not at all comprehend
sound as we do. However, the snake's
eyes are very much alive to the motions
of the charmer, or to the moving drum
sticks of his confederate, and being
alarmed he attempts to strike.
A dancing cobra (and no other snakes
dance) is simply a cobra alarmed and in
aposture to attack. He is not dancmg
to the music, but is making ready to as
sail the charmer.-Harrison's Family
