The sky was slightly ha zy and the sun shone mod. erately bright, making the day love ly and delightful. Early in the day circle appeared in the heavens, the center of which was the sun. The cir cle appeared tobe formed of different colors, red, blue, and yellow being the principal ones. M ithin this cir cle the sky appeared dark as a storm cloud, hut without it was the bluest of blue skies. And now a much larg er circle was seen to the northward of the first, formed of purest white, the periphery or rim of which seemed to pass directly over the face of the sun and cut through the smaller cir cle below its center on either side. And now appeared another wonder. On the larger circle, and just outside the smaller, two mock suns, brilliant in light and beauty, were seen equi distant from the first circle. Again, below the sun, and to the east and west of it, appeared two fiery swords, having somewhat the appearance of rainbows, from the points of which there radiated two broad belts of of light, one pointing to the north west and the other to the northeast, and crossing er.cb other on the northern limit of the great circle described above, making a com plete cross in the form of the let ter X.

Last year a heavy shower caught him while he was fishing. From his retreat he kept an eye out to see whatever there was to be seen and shortly after observed the drag, on flies, great and little, setting Ir the tall brook grass for shelter from the i ain. Before the shower was fair ly over he saw the cedar birds come and drive the dragon flies from theii covert, hunting them down in all their lace winged finery. The great three inch dragon flies, pointed with black and yellow, were too strong for the birds, hut the little slender fellows, done np in fancy colors brown, green, blue and dusky—be came ment for the hunters. Borne time ago I remonstrated with him for throwing stones at a king bird, but was told that he was doing it only to please the bird. From his perch on a high tree the king bird calculated the curve of each stone, chattering defiance as the missile whizzed by, rising a few feet when it came too near, only to settle again in the same place. As it amused both bird and boy, for several days the king bird return ed daily to enjoy the sport.—Cor. Forest and Stream. A Modern American House.

From tk« New Tort Son. It would do the hearts of country editors good to ride up town on the elevated cars in the afternoon of Fri day and Saturday in any week in the year. On these two days a great many business men give only a hasty glance at the evening papers, and then immediately draw trom a pocket a copy of a paper that is in marked contrast to the city paper, so far as type is invariably larger, and the dis plays of advertisements and headings to news articles commonly coarser. The ink is not always spread evenly over the page. NevertUesles the bus iness man opens the paper to the page devoted to village news, and reads every line there. After that he not infrequently rends the village advertisements nnd givesu brief look at the editorials. The city man used to live in the village where that pa per was printed, and he recognizes the names of people there as old ae nnd commonly old qu ain tances friends. The village paper comes like letter from home to the city man who w as o lice a villager. a Manual School for Missiona ries. From the Boston Traveler.
