birds on do:;::;ts.
OUt Thoroo Miller all. Till. Fashion a Hello of Sit vapory. Wearing the skins of bird and boast, writes Mrs. Olive Thorno Miller, in tho New York Herald, is a rclie of barbar ism, a survival from tho times when our savage ancestors worn forced to use them for warmth and decoration. Tho nearer to savagery the people, the great er, I believe, their use of feathers and furs. There is a moral side to the question. How can a thoughtful woman, feeling some responsibility in the training of her children or some desire to leave the world if not better which should be her aim at least not worse for her liv ing in it how can she reconcile her conscience to theconstant object lessons in cruelty which the wearing of mur dered birds holds up before her children? How do honest Christian mothers and earnest Sunday-school teachers recon cile their countenance of this cruel trade with the gentle teachings of Jesus Christ, which they labor to instill into the growing, and, let me assure them, reasoning minds under their care? They may, indeed, shut their eyes to facts and harden their hearts against arguments, but the child does not. What hU teacher is and what sh: dj;M his far greater weight with bim than what she says. Putting entirely aside the responsibil ities of people and the rights of animals, it is a simple, bare alternative that is presented to us: Shall the birds be al lowed to live or shall the earth be re duced to a barren wilderness? One of the two is certain to bo, for the bird is our only protector from tho insoct. To one who has not informed himself it may seem like a wild state ment, but, nevertheless, it is true that the insect is one of the most powerful forces on earth, and one against which man, with all his boasted ability, Is fcelplesa. It eomes in innumerable armlet, too minuto to be handled; nothing can discourage, nothing can eradicate it. It multiplies by millions; it preys upon every vegetablo and ani mal substance under heaven. In a world abandoned to the insect not a green thing could grow, and without vegetation neither man nor beast could exist. v. The bird, and the bird only, can cope with these fearful hosts of our most fatal foe, and it takes unceasing labor on their part to do it. No creatures have such appetites "incarnate voracity" Buskin calls them none require such constant supplies. Watch the birds with 8u Intelligent eye, not meroly glance at them, and see how almost incessantly they worff. The orow an outcast among mon follows the plow and destroys thousands' of grubs and worms that left to them selves would eat every vestige of tho crop. I beg to say right horo that my statements are no fancy sketch, but are derived from the scientific reports of Government officers, who have Investi gated the matter thoroughly. The oriole, moving quietly about on the trees, puts an end every day to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of the enemies of our foliage, and is reviled for killing an occasional bee. The vlreo, hopping from branch to branch, with his constant warble, snaps up an injurious insect at every step. Woodpeckers drag from their hiding places the destroyers of our fruit trees, and are saddled with an insulting name because a little sap exudes. The cedar bird clears half our orchard of its pests, and is bunted to death for eating a few of the cherries he has saved for us. Swallows in their beautiful flight are constantly devouring the hosts of the air, creatures that would otherwise hide the sky from us with their hosts. The beautiful warblers flitting inces santly about tho trees are working almost every Instant in our behalf, yet we some of us wear their little dead bodies in clusters and wreaths, and the insects increase and multiply apace. The rose breasted grosbeak works more industriously than any hod carrier, and never strikes for shortor hours; and what is he doing? Carefully examining the potato plants and picking off that pest, the potato beetle. Unfortunately --more unfortunately for us than for him he has a beautiful coat; he Is want ed to adorn Homebody's hat; his life of usefulness is cut short, and tho bugs 'nave free sweep with the potatoes. These are but few of the most common birds. I could go on all day and tell of the constant work of the feathered folk for man. Yet think what odds these beautiful creatures, our faithful serv ants, contend against. Remember the armies of four-footed foes who lie in wait for them and their eggs the cats, weasels, skunks, rats, squirrels and . many 1 do not think of. Consider the snakes and other reptiles which regu larly devour their eggs and young, and do not forget their feathered enemies crows, hawks, owls and jays all of whom like eggs and perhaps birds as well as we do ourselves. .. And then reflect on the attitudo of the human family toward them; first the men who shoot them for eating, for the fun of killing, or for a collection; then the boys too young to wield tho deadly gun, but amply equipped with sharp eyes, stout legs and thievish fingers, who scale the trees and scour the bushes and steal their eggs, ten, fifteen or twenty of next year's song birds in an afternoon sometimes. To this vast army of destroyers has woman at last joined herself. Woman, the tender-hearted, the lover of beauty and song, has really cast the great weight of her influence against the tribes of the air, and the birds fall at her behest by millions. " - Oh, my sisters, have we been called unreasoning, selfish? Are we classed with thoughtless children, with un teachable idiots? Are we not guilty? Remarkably Fait Bicycling. A bicyclist, whose Identity concerns no one, was riding; his wheel through a portion of France when up came a storm of rain. Tbo storm struck lilm just as bo started to coast down a nicely-graded bill some five mi lee long, lie proceeded on hi1! journey, and all the way down that hill it rained on his hind wheel, while the front wheel ran along perfect" Ij dry. TRUE TO MADELINE. A Pretty Story Told hy Kinile Zola, Mil ler of Crouch Fiction. You remember, my friends, that sweet spring-time when we went to sec him in his little house at Clamart? Jacques met us with his amiable smile and we dined under the arbor covered with vir gin vines, whilo Paris beyond murmured in the falling night. . You never knew his life. I, who grew up side by side with him, can tell you of his heart. Ho lived at Clamart for two years with his little blonde wife, who died so quietly. It is a history sad and heart-breaking. Jacques had mot Madeline at the fete at St Cloud. He began to love her be cause she was sad and suffering. He wished before that poor child was laid away in the ground to givo.her two sea sons of love. So he went to hide him self with her In that little plot of ground at Clamart, where tho roses crowded each other like flowers gone crazy. You know the house. It was very modest, all white, hidden like a nest in tho green foliage. Jacques little by lit tle was possessed with an infinite love for the dying one. Ho watched the mal ady gaining ground daily with bitter tenderness. Madeline, like a wax night taper which throws a brilliant light just before it goes out, illumined the white house with her blui) eyes, , During two seasons tho child soldom went out. She tilled tho tiny gardon with her charming spirit, her light robes, her gentle footfalls. It was she who planted thuae wild gilly flowers from which she made us bouquets; and the geranium, tho heliotrope, the rhododendrons only lived through her and for her. She was the soul of that corner of nature. Then autumn came. You remember Jacques came to us and said huskily: "She Is dead." She had died under the vine-grown arbor like an infant that falls asleep, at that hour when the sun is sinking to rest. She had died in tho midst of those verdures in tho wild gap where love had soothed two- years of her agony. I never saw Jacques again. I know that he still lived on at Cla mart, under the arbor in memory of Madeline. Soon tho siege commenced. I was so broken with fatigue that I thought no more of him. Hut the morning of the lath, learning that they were fighting on the sido of Mendon and Sevres, I saw again in memory the little white house hidden by green foliage. So I loft tho gate of Vauves and walked on. Tho roads were encumbered with wounded, so I arrived at Mouli ncaux, where 1 heard of our victory; but when I turned tho wood and entered the gap a terrible emotion tore my heart. Before trie on the ravaged ground I saw no longer- the little white house, only a mass of blackened timbers and stone where the torch of the Incendiary had passed. V I descended tho hill with (.ears In my eyes. ... . Ah! my friends, what a terrible oaUs tropho had taken place. You remem ber the hawthorn hedge, it was razed to 1 the ground by the cannon. The great gilly flowers, tho geraniums, the rhodo-' donrons, torn, faded, scattered... I felt a real pity for them, as if they wero the torn members of friends of mine. The house was torn on one side, dis playing openly the room of Madeline that had been closed since her deaths This room, opened brutally by the cannon of tho Prussians, this alcove of love, from which one could see the whole range of the valley, mado me think that I stood in the cemetery of my youth. Tho sun covered the debris with a golden glory, bringing into brighter prominence the devastation. Jacques must have abandoned the house when it was fired upon. " I walked on. 'sv I entered the green arbor where we had dined together. By a miracle it re mained intact. There on the ground in the midst of a pool of blood Jacques slept, his breast wounded by twenty bullets. He had not fled from the virgin vines he loved; he died where Madeline died. I picked up at his feet his empty cart ridge box, his broken rifle, and I saw that his poor dead hands were black with powder. Jacques for five hours alone with his gun had defended the vAito phantom of Madeline! SOME FUNNY LETTERS. Missives That Break the Monotony of the Commlialon Man' Existence. The life of a South Water street com mission merchant contains more prose than poetry, says the Chicago Tribune. There is no particular inspiration about butter and eggs, cheese or potatoes. Dressed chlskens and long-necked, scrawny turkeys dangling from iron hooks in a dingy back room do not ap peal to one's artistic sense. These things are the "familiars" of the Water street man, and it is not surprising that he is inclined to take an eminently prac tical view of life. . Once in awhile, however, a ray of humor shoots across the dreary tenor of the commission man's existence and re lieves the hard, dry proso of the street. Once in awhile, too, the South Water street dealers receive some humorous letters from country custom ers. Here are a few specimens: Meester : Plees send Me jure pris list of porduB sich 88 Butter, egges. Pourtrv, an ob llje. Another letter read as follows: Gents: They Is a large amount of Honnytn This country, I hav 00 Coleneys of bes, tbe bal tuns of my nabers Is about the same. A postscript is added to the effect that "Chicago will have to Pay well this Winter for Honey to Spred on Pan cakes." Here's a man who evidently knows more about geese than grammar. He says: deer Oenta: I have sum good Ooos. Do yo want t:ue Goes, wut will you giv for gees. I'frou v. un, tlies Gees 1 will Semi them by fmte rile Awuy. N. II. let me no ubmt these Gees r'.te away.
