HABITS OF THE DOVE. "Billing," Writer Thinks, Corresponds to Our Kissing. An Englishman, Edmond Selous, has been watching doves at play and in combaL Of the habit of "billing," In which so many birds engage when they are nesting, he birds now says: "Where merely 'bill,' they once, in my opinion, fed each other—or the male fed the female—but pleasure came to be experienced In the contact alone and the passage of food, which was never necessary, gradually be came obsolete. I think It by no means improbable that our own kissing may have originated in much the same way and that birds, when thus 'billing,' ex perience the same sort of pleasure that we do when we kiss must be quite obvious to any one who has watched them." Of a peculiarity of the stock dove Mr. Selous writes: "When these birds fight they constantly interrupt the flow of the :ombat by bowing in the most absurd way, not to one another, but, generally, so to speak, for no object or purpose whatever, apparent ly, but only because they must do so. The fact is, the bow has become a for mula of courtship and as courting and fighting are intimately connected the one suggests the other in the mind of the bird, who bows, all at once, under a misconception." Chinese Burial Customs. When a rich and important China man dies, his funeral with much pomp and splendor, friends and relations, instead of ing wreaths, send innumerable ban ners. is conducted His send These are made of white silk, with inscriptions beautifully worked In black velvet, and express the send ers' good wlsjies to the deceased him self or to the members of his family for many generations. On the day of the funeral these banners are carried by hired men who are all dressed alike for the occasion. After the funeral, which lasts several hours at the cemetery, is over, the banners all brought back, and eventually grace the rooms of the late Chinaman's house. are Hen a Hard Worker. James A.

All of a sudden he dashed out. passed Mr. Banger and caught one of the boys, whose flesh was very badly torn and had to be sewed up by a doctor. Mr. Banger, being afraid of shooting the boy, ran up to the tiger and broke his neck with the gun. The animal meas ured from nose to tail seven feet six inches." Savage Wild Buffalo. A Ceylon newspaper prints the fol lowing regarding the head of a wild buffalo, which was shot in that island recently: "Both the horns were bad ly worn off. This was probably caused by the animal's constantly digging up the ground with its huge horns at the least excitement or on seeing an en emy at a distance. It is said that the animal was a savage and dangerous brute, and the mere appearance of the huge head clearly shows it to have been so.

Marvelous cures are reported from ail parts of the country by women who have been cured, trained nurses who have witnessed cutes and physicians who have recognized the virtue of Lydia E.
