America Alone Has Humming Birds.
Though the art museums of Europe
may have some treasures of which
America cannot boast, our continent
haa the distinction of a monopoly of
the world's supply of humming birds,
the gems of all the feathered creation.
Of these there are said to be some 40
species the Four Hundred we may
well call them nearly all of which
are peculiar to the tropical region
Only eighteen cross the borders of tin
United etates from Mexico snd ocrtu
only In our southwestern states. The
popular Mea Is that the hummer lire
only on houey gathered from flowers
Thla Is a mistake. The bird does m
care some honey, but Its food con nix u
mainly of the small Insects which fre
quent the flowers. Some of these In
sects are Injurious to the blossom, ami
the Uny bird fulfills a useful function
In destroying them. That the hummer
la insectivorous Is also shown by Its
habit of catching Uny Insects on the
wing, which Is occasionally observed.

An As te Grind.
The familiar expression. "An ax to
grind." frequently attributed toltcnja
uitn Franklin, originated with Charles
Miner, who introduced the following
tale of woe In a short, pithy essay pub
lished In a country newspaer of Penn
sylvania during the year 1311: A little
boy Is asked by a man with an ax ami
an engaging smile if his father haa a
grindstone, and. the family being In
proud possession of that Implement of
welfare, the youngster leads tho way
Into tbe.liack yard.
"What a fine little fellow you are
exclaims the stranger, quite cssually.
ss though scarcely conscious of speak
ing loud. Of course the boy becomes
at once his most obedient servant aud.
by more well directed praise, brings
water to whet the wheel snd heroic
ally turns the fcT.adte mf.il his
smsll hands sting with blisters, ltut
the moment the ax Is ground Its owner

France's Reads Best In the World.
Among the reaaons which make tin'
highways of France tho best In the
world is the requirement that all pre

be thoroughly performed. When em
bankments are made the earthwork Is
built up only a few Inches at a time
and the successive strata are leveled
and in the nelghliorhood of masonry
rammed. Every ditch Is carefully cut
at a proper angle, rammed and l(
necessary paved with atones. Dancer

Rock Candy.
"Originally what Is now known as
rock candy," explained a confcctiouei
to a reporter, "was called in the trade
Glbraltai rock. Originally, also, it was
the purest kind of candy, for It was
crystalllncd sugar pure and simple.
Ordlniully It Is purer now than many
other candles. Hawthorne, in The
House of the Seven Cable,' describ
Ing a small store, says. 'For instance,
there was a glass pickle Jar Oiled with
fragments of Gibraltar rock not, In
deed, splinters of the veritable fortress.
Lot bits of delectable csndy.' Other
writers of even earlier date than that
speak of Gibraltar rock, it appears,
however, that the Gibraltar was finally
dropped, and It became known as rork
candy. I hare 'a price list Issued In
to the enndy trade In which Gl
bra I tar rock la the uame given, though
after that It Is quoted aa rock eaudy.
Throughout England It is known ss
Gibraltar almost exclusively outside of
the Inrce cities. In the latter, as here,
the Gibraltar la dropped, and It Is
called rock candy."
A Dismal Failure.
A young Jobbing Arm in New York
overbought for the full trade. The!
heaviest mistake bad leen In a line of
overcoat, which, it looked, they would
have to carry over a season. Efforts to
get cash for the stock were froltless
except at ruinous rates. At last the
Arm went to an old timer In the trade
for advice.
"Well," aald the man of experience,
"yon've got a pretty good list of esw
tomers. Just divide the coats up Into
lota of thirteen each. Send a batch
apiece to some of your sharpest cus
tomers, but make out the bills for
twelve. They'll be so tickled to get
one coat for nothing that they'll take
em all."
The scheme had been tried before
tbo men met again. Tbe old timer
waited for his praise.
"Well, dldnt they keep the coats r
be asked.
"Yes," returned the , jobber sadly,
"One each the one that wasn't billed."

The Hsnging Judge.
When Lord Xorbnry, "the banging
Judge." as be wss called in Ireland,
was sentencing a man to death for
stesllng a wstrh, he said:
"My good fellow, yon made a grasp
at time and caught eternity.
Nothing seemed to please Lord Nor
bury more than the continual uproar In
court, created by hla puns.
"What la your occupation, "my honest
man?" he asked a witness.
"Flesse, your lordship, "I keep
racket court"
"So do I." said tbe Judge.
When Lord Norbury wss being
buried, the grsve was so deep that the

him rope enough; don't stint him. He
was the boy that never grudged rope
