This practice was used in tlie earliest times of which there is any record. The Egyptian mummy cases bear evidence of having been varnished iu this manner. Tbe use of fresco, or venter color paints. though rho oldest, was not the only method known to the ancients. The Greeks and liomuris specially practiced encaustic painting. Kacaustic plaints were made of clarified Ivocsaa-ux. with Avhicli, AVheu melted, pigments Aveiv mixed. These paints were applied hot aa-ith brushes or spa take, and when cold they Acere given a glazed surface by holding a torch cr n hot iron near them. The hot iron was called the 4 *ea uteri um." Another method is said to have been to molt the wax AA-itli rosin, and after the pigment was added the compound was aIkru-vd to cool to a hard and brittle mass, whlcli would be pulA-orizcd. The colored powders made in this way were mixed with water, so that they could be applied A\*itk a brush like fresco paint, after which they were molted by the cautorlum. If rosins Avoro thus used with the wax, a sort of varnish was the result. If the Avax was used alone, the finished painting was sometimes varnished. These/ colored praxes Avore also used for writing.

It is well known that many of the cranes and other long legged wading birds indulge in curious antics that partake cloudy of the nature of the human dance, but it is uot known to many persons that the albatross has the most elaborate and ceremonious dance of them allOnly very few have ever seen the albatross on land: probably nine persons out of ten who have soon the wonderful birds at all have observed them only on the ocean. One of the nesting places of this great winged creature is the island of Laysan, in the Pacific ocean, and there at times the ground is absolutely covered with their nests. It is on Iaiysail that the albatross dance was first seen by a lucky scientist. The ceremony begins when a lot of the birds are grouped in a circle. Two will advance toward each other, bonding and nodding their heads in exact = imitation of tlie human bow. Then they spar with their biils, crossing 1 them gently and still making funny ] little bows. Then one bird will lower its head and stand quite still hi that pose, while the other throws Its head back till the bill points straight Into the air. It puffs out its breast and ad- j vances with a ?jtieei\ fantastic strut, uttering a curious grunt. The other bird begins to snap its bill till it pro duces the sound of castanets. So the two Mill alternate, advancing and retreating and bowing to each oth- I or by turns. Sometimes one will ]>ich up a bit of grass or a feather and offer it to the other. Then a second couple Mill Join the dance, and at last as many as forty of the huge birds may be ongaged in the queer pastime. ^ Starlleil tl?<? En^liNlimciz. A London paper relates that an enterprising Yankee came over to England and decided to open a shop In Birmingham. lie obtained premises next door to a man who also kept a shop of the same description, but was not very pushing in his business methods. The methods of the Yankee, however, caused the older trader to wake up, and with the spirit of originality , strong upon him lie affixed a notice . over his shop with the words, "Kstab- f lisbed fifty years/' painted in large letters. Next day the Yankee replied to this with a notice over his store to this effect: "Established yesterday. No old stock." Llcorict*.
