Care of Pet Birds. "People make too much fuse over their pet birds. They have too many rules jtnd too Httle common sense,'' says an expert on the care of house pets. "There are really no rules about tak ing care of pets in the summer except such rules as would apply equally well to a person. Feed more salad, moat any kind. Faed fruit in season, a amall amount. Be extra careful about good drinking water—that's all anybody can do for a canary or a parrot. "Air la good for a bird. It can hang outdoors. But direct drafts must be avoided." Environment Affected Law. Blackstone states that In the Isle of Man, to take away a horse or ox was no felony, but merely a trespass. There was no way to conceal them in this limited territory or carry them off. Because successful stealing of large animals was difficult, the punishment was light. But to steal a pig or fowl, which was easily done, was punishable by death. The environment affected the laws. FOUND—A small amount of money on Blackfoot street, late Saturday.

With her north wind skallyhootin' and her temperature pirootin' in among a feller's sensitory nerves ! And. when she fights a duel with the little jag-o-fuel, that's waitin' out-o'-doors to keep ye warm,—O, it JANUARY takes a cheerful giver, and an optimistic liver, to demonstrate old Janooary's charm. . . . But—when the neighbors gather in defiance of the weather—to taste the joys of settin' by the fire, there's an institute of learnin' where the home-fires is a-burnin'— where patriotism is parent of desire! Then we find in Janoo ary. not a bandit gaunt an' bleary, but a bosom friend beneath the wintry vest. . . . Where we find congenial labor, swap pin' ideas with our neighbor, and adoptin' the conclusion which is best. . . . While her breath is mighty searchin' where the naked trees is lurchin' and there aint no hint of mercy in her grip,—yet the maple-sap flows sweeter, and the spring shall dawn completer, at the final crack of Janooary's whip. . . . Then, rally all ye merry, to the call of Janooary, —Awake, an' taste the real joys of life,—No season more en- trancin' with fiddlin' an' dancin' -—Brace up, an' get acquainted with ver wife! i A McNeil's Grocery | Wishes You 1 PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR i = The past twelve months have been a period of § 1 Progress.

"I used to think she was awful mean,'' said Mary, ''but she's the kindest creature in the world. When she bought four diamond rings and had three others given to her it seemed to me she might have given one to me. We went to the red school together. But she learned not to give, and I learned to be eavious. Then I went to school a g ai n amo n g the daisies and along the hedgerows and they taught me truth. My friend had ret me set those rings and enjoy their beauty and that's all she got out of them herself. She kept from me the worry oi guarding them.
