And the moving masB which ere ited all this excitement—excitement rtthln BB well as without the hotel proved to be a flock of swallows gone istray In their aerial flight Within Ihe hotel no end of trouble and Incon venience were experienced, for many tf the birds flew In through the open windows and were ousted with a great leal of difficulty. The feathered cloud went astray, probably through the miscalculation if the leaders, and when a few of them, flying too low, went In the di rection of the hotel windows, the rest followed, like a flock of misguided |heep. Pell-mell they struck against the roof and upper windows, and, •rhere the windows were open, In they ew and round and round the rooms, ut the aeroplane landing on the Wil ls not In commission yet and the LOtel management objected strenuous to any attempt of guests to enter meanB of the roof. Accordingly, a corps of hotel em ployes, including all the volunteers frho could be pressed Into service, fnade for the upper chambers of the kostelry and swished and -switched the winged visitors out of doors, some Head and some alive. Some of the birds, in flying against the building, (truck with such force as to be (tanned and killed In the fall to the pavement. Many dead birds were found on the pavement. COLLEGE GIRLS SHINE SHOES California Co-Eds Vie With Each Other In Original 8cheme to Raise $50,000. Pomona, Cal.—There have been Itreet scenes In Pomona that might ihock this staid college town If they irere not enacted for charity. The bo?s literally have the girls at their feet. The pretty "co-eds" are ihlnlng shoes to help raise the $50,000 fund to secure the Carnegie guaranty. They have opened shoe-shlnlng stands right on the streets and hail ill passers with: "Shine, sir! Polish get your ikates painted here!" The girls? Why, they seem to en |oy It, and are vying with each other AS to which can put the most mirror tike finish on a piece of leather. As for the boys and beaux of more loubtful age, they are enjoying it, too. Bome of them who formerly merely wore shoes because society demanded It now have their footwear polished three times In one block. If the girls »nly keep It up a while longer they will dispel all Carnegie's fears of flying disgracefully rich. The shoe-shining fad has resulted from a division among the 'co-eds" as to the best way to raise the fund, and Bach side is trying to outdo the other In startling methods of getting the sash. The other branch has opened a hair dressing parlor with instructors who are credited with trying to teach how to set a rat in a concrete foundation 10 that a coiffure will look beautiful tor thirty days without any further •ffort. PRAISE FOR LITTLE SPIDER Interesting Story Contributed by Writer, Greatly Struck by In telligence of Insect London.—An interesting article Is sontributed to the Scotsman by a writer who has been studying the life and habits of the spider and who haa been greatly struck by its intelli gence. "Of all the solitary Insects I have ever seen," he says, "the spid,er is the most sagacious, and its actions, to one who has attentively considered them, geem almost to excel belief. The spider is formed by nature for a state of war not only on other Insects, but on Its fellows. For this state na ture seems perfectly well to have formed It with' singular perfection. "Its head and breast are covered with a strong natural coat of mall, which is impenetrable to the attempts of every other Insect and Its lower parts are enveloped In a soft, pliant skin which eludes the sting even of a wasp. Its legs are terminated by itrong claws, hot unlike those of a lobster, and their vast length, like »pears, serves to keep every assailant at a safe distance. Not worse fur nished for observation than for at tack and defense. It has several eyesi large and transparent." Pauperism In England.
