Whi Birth« D^cllnp, Kiitn Kxpen, So (In l>*Htlm: Thing* Km>ii l |*. The birth rate gives impaitial evi dence of the social condition of a country, and a declining birth rate marks the growing well being ol its people, says tbe Nineteenth Century. The birth rat) doe* not indicate with even approximate accuracy tne growth ul population. Tbe birth rate declines with the death rate. However great the birtn rate of an old settled country may be, the nat ural increase of population—tbat is, the difference between births and deaths—does not, on a ton years aver age, exceed fifteen pot l,(KX) of popu lation. I* is very remarkable that the birth rate all over Europe dominated in 1876, and, except in liuesia, has de clined mote at less continuously ever since. In twelve at the Ufteen conn tries ol Europe (Uussia nut included 1 the birth rate culminated in tbe y«ai 1876, and also to within a fraction in the other three. In that year tbe birth late varied 1 per'1,060 of the population) from 26.2 in France to 46.3 in Hungary, while the natural increase of population — tbe difference between tbe births and deaths—varied only from 3.6 in France to 15.4 in England. In Hungary, which bad tbe highest birth rate 1 16.3), the natural increase was only 9.3, showing bow uosate it is to esti mate tbe growth of popnlation by tbe births alone. The close interdependence ol the birth rate and tbe death rate is very dearly shown by oompHting the births and death when tbe birth rate was highest and again when It was lowest. In J870 tbe birth in the fifteen Euro pean countries averaged .35.3 pet 1,000, and tbe death rate 23.7 par 1,000. Tbe average natural increase was thus 11.8 pet 1 , 000 , In 1903 tne average births bad fallen to20 8 , ard tne deaths to 18.4, making the average increase of population 11,4 pet 1,000. Thus while tbe birth rate fell 15>^ per cent.,the natural increase docllnad only l a 4 par cent. CHIEF END IN CIVIC ART. Sylvester bsstcr in the Century. To make utility the vehicle of beauty is a chief and lo civic art. Use ood beauty have too ouromonly been re garded as necessarily separated attri butes; things of utility must be com monplace, nod it la immaterial if tbe common place be ugly ; its vary ugliness makes us appreciate nil tbe more tbe beauly of things rare, kept precious and apart—that is tbe view the multi tude baa been led to take, from wbiob even many artists are not exempt. It was an old-fashioned custom to isolate all tbe nice things of tbe household in tbe best room, wniob was too precious to live in. but tbe modern practice is to make the whole bouse aa beauti ful as possible. We now see that just became tbe " best room" wentunu-ed, its contents, deemed beautiful, really made it a chamber of horrors, .a forced familiarity witb ugliness dulls the taste for beauty. Bo unless the eyes are wonted to tbe beautiful by see ing it on every aide, resident in tbe most common things, beauty at its best cannot be given to tho things eet apart to wear it as a garment of state, as In statues, monuments and public buildings.

Here in Maine—in faot, all over New England—red squirrels do not put by great hoards of any kind lor winter use. When a Maine red squirrel has tilled itself witb acorns and beech nuts it er ill hide a lew here aod there —under leaves, in holluw logs, in cracks ol rifted trees and among atone heaps. An average red aquiirel, having the run of an oak grove in tbe fall of the ear, may id the course of two weeks ide away from two to lour quarts uf acorns, though they will hs in perhaps twenty places, and in no instance which we hare noted has any nut been shelled. The squirrel wbiob plans a hoard of nuts aod makes deliberate imputa tions lor winter is tbe little chip munk, ot striped squirrel, which seeks winter quarters soon alter heavy frosts and which remains in biding all win ter. Tbe chipmunks olteu hide many aa two quarts of shelled beech nuts in one place. Their storehouses are, aa a rule, under tbe ground in sloping and sandy soil, the burrows having been dug with true engineer ing skill, so that no freshet can drown them out. There ia a colony ol chipmunks among tbe mounds cl graves in the cemetery on Indian Island, Old Town, wbiob numbers nearly 100 individuals, and it speak* weil fot tbe kindness ol the Indian children to know that tbe little workers ate permitted to live so near to human habitations, for tbe Indian cottages are on all sides. It ia believed that moat observing woodsmen will say that the red squir rels of this vicinity seldom make large catches of provisions for winter con sumption and never shell the stored nuts. In faot, tbe red species have no need to pay much heed to suoh mat ters, as they ate abroad and active in the coldest days ol winter, as much as they ate in midsummer,so nreoautions for food ate not demanded. Aa the red squirrels subsist lot a good part of the year upon the cones of pines and spruces, which hang to tbe llmba,tbey do out oats bow despor bard the anow may be, feeling secure in Unding all the food they want among the tree tops.

M IGrpcr's Weekly, Tho rural carrier has troubles, just beginning when he gets bis commis sion and nssuroei, his duties. One source of his woe is the never-ending exactions of the "patrons." They ask him to find what Jones is paying for word, and let them know temot rew without fail. They expect him to find out who has pigs for sale, tnd if bmitb would loan them his gobbler. They want him to find out what tbe butcher is paying for calves, and if tbe storekeeper has any medioint that he would recommend for a viok baby, and to "step" down to tbe express office and see if there is a package there fur them, and if tbeie is to please biing it out. They place letters and packages in tbe mail box without stamps, with written re quests to deliver to parties living along the route. A rural carrier in Saginaw county, Mich., received tbe following: "Friend F'ted : Ar you tun tbe free delivery by my house, 1 would like you to bring me on your next trip a barrel of salt, two sacks of flour, also a ton of coal and three spools of wire; then throw a set ol whittle trees and an evenet under the seat. When you come by Marion Walker's get two ol bis largest obioKen coops and bring them along; then I can have my turkeys caught so you can take them to town. Had 1 better get it out along side tbe road, or will you go into the woeds after it? 1 think this free delivery is a great thing for us rural people." READING WITH THOUGHT. St. Nicholas.

Try tbe experiment. Unless yon are unusually ohaetvins, you will be sur prised to see bow hazy is your mental picture. Tois expenence proves that wa look without seeing, aod it ia to bs feared that many ol us read without thinking. Aa an example, some of you may have heard a verse of a not obscure song ic which a young man ia represented as entering an inhabited plaoe apaq tbs baok oi a small horse, a* inserting a plume in his bead gear, an", giving it the name of "Macaroni." For those to whom tho veiae is un familiar it may be said that the young man's name is "Yankee Doodle." If you have read tbe stanza, ia it fait to ask if you know what "Macaroni" means? It Is not a merely nonsensical rhyming word. G .o«l Sign. How ia Josh doin' in hia studies? asked F'aimer Corotosael. Not very wel^anaweied tbe professor.
