Police work Is the strangest of the work done in the world of birds. In Franco nnd central Europe the muscl capa birds police the nlr, iosted on telegraph wires. Itlnck, with heads decorated with orange fillets, these notable flycatchers aro dreaded by the brigands of the nlr. Eagles, fnl cons and nil the feathered strong men of the ether shrink from nn encounter with this tyraut. When the tyrant cannot find wires to porch on he iK-rches on a pole. When stationed In a prairie or a pnsture he perches uion tho back of nn ox. He lives by hunt ing insects and attacks oil birds, even the strongest, using beak nnd claws in the unequal struggle. All the fowls of the nlr fenr the police bird, nnd even the most nctlve pillagers of the nests feign honesty when under the 8harp eye of the Musclcnpa tyrnnnus. In winter the tyrant takes posses sion of the wnrm shers prized by birds. In spring, wlien the young nre twittering In the nests, the tyrant turns "thief" nnd sows terror ntnong friends nnd enemies alike. Even the sparrows bandeiV to fall upon a Held fly away w hen they see the black coat nnd orange fillet of the "policeman." The tyrant holds his power by his audacity. All nnlmals yield to the Influence of courage, a quality special ly tenacious In birds. The tyrant bird Is small, but his attitude commands respect Harper's Weekly. .Curloue Anticipations. Many iecullnr anticipations hnve been cited against patent applications. At one time, n congressman took to the patent olliee a look invented by one of his rural constituents. Tho lock wns nn exnet copy of n lork fig ured In 'Trice on Locks." showing the lock used on a gate of ancient Thebes thousands of years, before Christ. The congressman nfter examining the Illus tration, which was shown him by one of the officers, exclaimed that he didn't care who that fellow from Thobc wns. ho certainly stole It from his con stituent. On another occasion nn ap plication for a patent was HUsl for a flower basket whose construction cor responded In detail with the Scrip tural description of the nrk in which Moses was placed In the bulrushes, which, we nre told In tho second chap ter of Exodus, was nn nrk of bul rushes daulied with sllmo nnd pitch.

Few people are aware to this day that tho Falkland Islands are marked lu all Argentine maps nnd geographies as "unlawfully retained by Great litit aln." Tho origin of tho dispute was that England after abandoning the Islands In 1774 resumed possession lu 1S-J. Tho Argentine government pro tested and, as A. Stuart l'ennlugtou points out lu his book on the country, Is even today "careful to do nothing which could even apparently recogulzo the rights of the present possessors." It was for that reason that it declined a proposal a few years ngo to run a lino of Argentine ships to the islands. Midnight Conversation.

Burning the Dead at Benaree Care less and Callous Rite. Describing the burning of their dead by the Hindus of India at Itenares, Price Collier la Scribner's Magazine I have been present nt these burn ings. The bodies are brought In on a frail litter. A pile of logs Is built up, held in place by four Iron stanchions. The body, with tho head uncovered, Is placed on the logs, more logs are piled ou top, tho litter Is broken up and added to the small fugots under neath and the Are lighted. There are various ceremonies connected with tho rite. The body Is carried several times around tho pllo before being placed up on it. Tho nearest relative walks around the pllo with a Jar of water, letting it drip down as ho goes till of a sudden he dashes the Jar to tie ground, breaking It to pieces a sym bol of life, everywhere. At a certain moment, too, the skull Is fractured by tho nearest relative to allow tho easy escape of tiie spirit to another world. Where the deceased is rich the Are is made of costly and sweet smelling wood, sandalwood and the like, and the ceremonies are more elaborate and more prolonged. No doubt It is the ideal way to dispose of a dead body, but when I have seen It dono hero it seemed to mo a callous and a careless rite. I hare noticed all over India tho ab solute indifference of the natives them selves to the pain and deformities and maladies that are displayed as an excuse for nlms. It is not tho stoicism of our western Indians, who thought It dishonorable to show fear or to shriuk from pain, but an imbedded indiffer ence, a numbness to this particular Influence. HER NEW GOWN.
