Pope Leo XIII. and the Pigeon.
The illness of the DOfa recalls a
touching story which went the rounds
at the time ot the illness ot leo XIII.
Kvery day at a certain hour a pigeon,
after the manner of Noah's dove, used
to come to the study of the pontitl,
who, no matter what the business In
hand was, would go to the bird and
feed It On the day that the pope was
seized with his fatal Illness tlx- pigeon
came as usual, but found the window
closed. The bird Happed its wlnjf
against tho pnne and then struck the
glass with its beak. The pope heard it
and ordered the window to be opened
and his camerler to feed It. The bird
would not eat, but perched Itself on
the dying pontiff's couch, and there
dpiimnstrnted its delight at seeing Its
old friend and protector.

Care of a Piano.

metis out of tho piano felta. The

not taken to prevent thum from do

they aro removed; but some sticks of
sandalwood, or a bit of cotton satu

anceslrv to speak of, who has to gain
bis living with his wits, could give him
cards and spades at his own tricks in
two lessons.
Once I took Into the house out of

when I took him out along a quite
rad at times. The yellow dog. who
made friends with him, always cumo
along and beat the water .spaniel at
his own tricks without training. Then
be began to plav trickH of his own on
the spaniel. When he had a bone- ho
looked out for his comrade, and when
he saw him loping along he would lay
the- hone in his path and disappear.
The spaniel alvvavs made for the bone,
but the- yellow dog, Just as he was
about to grab It, would dart fram bis

with It. This happened over and over
