Whenever I catch an animal that leaves a natural odor in the vicinity I am almost sure to get another in the same place. An animal will come a long distance to investigate a scent of its own kind. One should be very care- N il not to leave human odor of any .md when killing a trapped animal since this will frighten away another fur bearer who has come to find the cause of the scent. Few trappers stop to think how keen ly sensitive is the nose of a game or fur bearing animal. Just suppose that you could smell as many things as you can see. Cover carefully every human odor on the trap line and you have half caught your animal. Then use some good scent to tickle his sensitive nose and you will win. One of the best single drugs that can be used to allure a fur bearer is oil of anise. Oil of lavender, asafetida, rho dium and peppermint are often used together in manufactured baits. I think the most dependable scent bait that 1 have used is fish oil.—F. E. Brimmer in Orange Judd Farmer. “You Always Pay.” “You always pay, you know,” said a forger who was captured recently aft er years of liberty as a fugitive from justice. Sure you do. Whether you violate man’s law or nature’s law, which is nother name for God’s law, you al ”s have to pay, and the full price. . Some pay, as this man did, in lodging and slinking through the w r orld like a hunted beast, his mind worried, his face gradually taking on a furtive look, knowing always that somewhere aheau lay the steel jawed trap all set and ready. Some pay with broken health, others with broken hearts; some surrender friends and love, some give all in life worth living for; some cast their con science to be gnawed by the wolves of remorse, some not only pay their own share in full, but shift part of the bur den to their children and their chil dren’s children, even to the third and fourth generation, for the debt must be paid to the last farthing.—Kansas City Star. Have You a Dodge Miniature? Tnere are today a very large number of homes in America where the most treasured possession is a small old fash ioned miniature, painted some time be tween the years 1823 and 1870, most likely, and which bears in tiny, unos tentatious lettering the name of the artist, “J. Dodge.” If the miniature be that of a bona fide ancestor and not that of the bought variety its posses sion is better than a D. A. R. pin, for in practically every instance it is all the proof necessary that the family an cestor was somebody. For the artist who painted these pictures did the most masterly work, and his patrons represented the statesmen and lead ers of their time. Henry Clay, An *cw Jackson, .lames K. Polk, Andrew ?son, Aaron Burr—men famous jughout the nation—sat to the paint er whose art was devoted to the tiny miniature portraits on ivory.—Ex change. Petty Spite. The late Mrs. Inez Milholland Boisse vain, the suffrage worker, had a frank nature, and nothing was more objec tionable to her than spitefulness. “There is too much petty spite,” she said one day, “among women who pre tend to be friends. “Two women sat at tea in a Fifth avenue restaurant. “ ‘There goes Mr. Smith in his new car,’ said one of the women. She add ed, with a simper, ‘What a fibbing flat terer he is, to be sure!’ “ ‘Why ? Did he tell you you were pretty?’ said the other woman coldly. “ ‘No,’ said the first woman. ‘He told me you were.’ ” Doing Others. The famous phrase in “David Har um” which reads, “Do unto the other fellow the way he would like to do unto you—and do it fust,” has had al most universal currency, and to most people its novelty was one of its at tractions. But if you turn to Dickens* “Martin Chuzzlewit” you will find that young Jonas remarks in one place, “Do other men or they will do you.*' Not so very far apart except in tiine.- Hartford Courant.

The Reason. “The cynical poet says a man’s wife is a little dearer than his horse. Now. that isn’t true.” “Of course, it isn’t true. She is a great deal dearer.

If all the rice in Arkansas were one grain it would take a Grand canyon to store it. If all the corn in Arkansas were one ear it would take the com bined force of all stump pullers to ex tract one grain from that ear. If all the chickens in Arkansas were one chicken it would straddle the Rocky mountains like a colossus and its crow would shake the rings from Saturn. If all the hogs in Arkansas were one hog he could stand with his hind feet on the island of Cuba and his fore feet on the isthmus of Panama and dig the canal with one stroke of his snout. If all the cows in Arkansas were one cow she could graze on the evergreens of the tropics and switch the icicles from the north pole with her tail and it would take a canal from the great lakes to the gulf of Mexico to carry boats laden with her butter and cheese. If all the mules in Arkansas were one mule he could stand with one fore foot on Mexico and the other fore foot on Canada and kick the man out of the moon.—H. S. Taylor, Inspector United States Indian Service. Seen on an Ostrich Farm. It is no uncommon thing to see a male ostrich strutting about followed by three or four distinct broods, all of different sizes. When the incubating process is completed the cock bird leads his young ones off and. if he meets an other proud papa, engages in a terrific combat with him. The vanquished bird retires without a single chick, while the other, surrounded by the two broods, walks away triumphantly. Just a Precaution. “So you are attending cooking school?” said the friend. “Are you going to do your own work after you are married?” “No; I want to be able to teach my husband how to prepare the meals in an emergency.” Too Much.

While I am well rooted in my French and Latin soil, I have traveled far through the world, and one may be lieve me when I say that I have fourd no city that more resembles Paris in its ways and the characteristics of its inhabitants than New York. Even London, admirable as it is, is more apart. This is not to say that New York is not profoundly original, but that between it and Paris there are parallel originalities. The gayety of the streets; already certain aspects of pic turesque antiquity; the atmosphere of welcoming; the vivacious spirit, cordial hospitality and disinterested enthusi asm for talent, merit or novelty; a cer tain quickness to adopt and to discard ideas, art movements and people; a restlessness at times too feverish; a love of pleasure, elegance and luxury; a tendency to respond instantly and as one man to any great and international event—all this is what makes of Paris and New York, each in its own particu lar way, with its little faults and grand qualities, the two most sympathetic, the most “electric” cities of the civ ilized world.—Jules Bois in Century. Immigrants and the Birth Rate. The figures given out by the census bureau showing what is described as an astonishingly higher birth rate among foreign born Americans than among native Americans are perhaps not so astonishing after all. It is common knowledge that the families of foreign born parents are larger than purely American families. It is safe to say that they have been for many years, though the figures now published are the first ever made by the national government, but persons who are distinctly American in their feeling, habits, prejudices, customs and thinking continue to govern America and lead the American people. That the more rapid increase of the elements brought into the population by recent immigration will have a tend ency to unamericanize America is an assumption that lacks support in na tional experience. Our experience is that America makes xVmericans of Eu ropeans.—St. Louis Republic. The Great Secret. The regulation of our time is more important than the effort to get mon ey. When we know how to regulate our time enough money will always come. Earning a living is only a mat ter of learning how to spend one’s time. And singular as this may seem, it is not the time spent in earning a living that counts so much as the time spent when we are not earning it. It is what you do when you don’t have to do anything that tells in the long run. When, therefore, you are not busy trying to make both ends meet spend your time in associating with million aires and people who have nothing to do but spend enormous incomes. You’ll be a millionaire yourself before you know it. If you want to catch a dis ease always expose yourself to it.— Life. Justice White a Great Walker. Chief Justice White could give the noted Edward Pay son Weston a good handicap and beat him in a walking match. Mr. White brims over with good nature, says Elisha Hanson in Cartoons Magazine, and he is a wel come visitor on any street which he picks for his rambles about Washing ton. He probably knows more women and children in the poorer sections, be tween the capitol and the exclusive northwest of the city, than any other Washingtonian. Frequently he is seen trudging along in the midst of a lot of urchins, none of whom shows the slight est regard for the great dignity of his office, but who bask equally under the radiance of his beaming smiles. Caught Him. A small boy whose record for de portment at school had always stood at a hundred came home one day re ) cently with his standing reduced to ; ninety-eight. “What have you been doing, my ! son?” asked his doting mother.
