A cat had noticed the birds, and no donlit con ceived the unreasonable idea that here fche miht possil)!)- find a nest with a toottiBOine young bird in it. So pussy climbed the ivy and reached a point where she had seen one of the birds ditnppear amid the thick leaves. Stretching out it s paws where it sup poised a nest would be a loud chattering ensued and a myriad of sparrows dart ed out and attacked the cat with furv. It was indeed a vicious onslaught, They jM-cked and chattered and Mut tered at a great rllte and the cat was bewildered. To frf.e itself from the assault the cat pit ami font: lit and howled, but it was of no use, the birds kept at it until their enemy fell to the ground. This did not Mop the com bat of the birds. They kept pecking away until they were tired. The cat did not move nnd ovcabionaily a tpnr row would drop to the ground a tafe niwtance from its enemy, as if to nee if it was dead. Some little time after ward a witness of this t-tranve strug gle went to the spot and found that the cat was dead. ts eyes had been lit erally duy out and its head was a mass of Weeding wounds. E.

Teh "When I went abroad this spring," said the young; man who was being dined because he had just come home from the exposition, says the New York Sun, "I was so ill that my mother raid I could not jfo without our doctor. "On the way across, somehow, all my illness frot blown overboard and I felt as if I had left myself in New York and was a new man I'd h:)ve to get ac quainted with. Hut ail the time there was the doctor in our party, lit' was having a good time nnd inking his own medicines; every once in awhile Ike would take a pid from one waistcoat pocket and take it, then after a meal he would draw a powder from another pocket and wash that down. "The day we reached Amsterdam, howeter, like a flash. I found my o!d self I had loift in New York. I felt ill and coul!n"t breathe. I went, to the doctor in haste. "'Doctor,' I said, 'I feel quecrly; I can't get a long breath, all I can do.' " Then take two short ones," said he, and I laughed and got better rifc'ht there. "And that was the only time my physician prescribed for me from dock to dock, over and hack." A Monumental Farce. While the fifure-heads of the ancient relic still dignified with the name of Indian ''government" are wildly waving sigsal of dis tress toward Washington because Jake Uodovitz won't pay them the $12.50 they say he owes, have they paused to investigate the monumentally farcical perfor mance which the Dawes Commis sion is perpetrating upon their citizens under the title of "land appraisement!7' The so-called 'appraisement is being made under rules and regu lations prescribed by men who couldn't tell sand from cinders; and, worse than that, the work is being done by a corp3 of poli tical grafters who would beat a demoralized retreat at the ap proach of a gentlemanly Jersey calf. Fifty-seven diflcrnt classfica Hons of laud are attempted something absolutely impossible to a government chemist or Philadelphia lawyer. this is candidly admitted by a dozen ap praisers whom the News has in' terviewed. The appraisers are selected, as i ?! the case in every branch of service under the Interior de partment, merely on account of their "pull"' or consanguinity with some useful partisan.

Jounson of North Broad street, who for the imst five weeks has been with the ullotingand sur veying commissions in the Kiowa and Comanche country, has retured home.

To justify the 1 ying of a pipe liue to so re mote a region would require posi tive evidence of a large area of productive oil territory. Start ing with the Kansas oil fields near Neodesha, where there is a production of some 4,900,000 bar rels, we pass into the Indian Ter ritory, near liartlesville, where A Book .Club for a Small Tovtn. A writer in the November Ladies' Home Journal, telling how to organize book clubs iu small communities, says that one suc- sesslal club was started in a small country town of from a thousand to fifteen hundred inhabitants, in which there was no public libary of any kind. Its charter members numbered seventeen. Each mem ber, except one who was chosen as secretary and gave service in stead of money, paid into the general treasury five dollars a year. With the sum so raised the club was able to subscribe for seventeen periodicals, week lies au'l iuonthl.es, and to buy from seventeen to thirty-four books chosen in general from among the new publications.
