Those of us who possess talking par rots nre often asked the question, "Do you think they really understand what they say?" Sometimes I have been in clined to say "Y'es.'' so striking has been the fitness of the birds' remarks; at other times, •'No.'* When a bird has been c-arefully taught or has learned from his own observation a consider able number of set phrases and sen tences, there are certain to arise occa sions when one or another of tats ex clamations fits In happily with the con versation or circumstances of the mo ment. Some few instances of such co incidences (for every one of which I can vouch) may interest your circle of readers. Some years we were present ed with a young green parrot. The bird must have been only a few months old. as she gave no sign of her red tall. Tills, however, quickly ap peared. and I'olly soon gave evidences that she was listening to sounds and learning to reproduce them. We now began to give her talking lessona by continually repeating over and over again set words or phrases and were soon repaid for our pains. Polly began to talk and quickly mastered a good many of her lessons. She added a good many self acquired accomplish ments, such as cab calls, milkmen's and paper lsiys' cries and the cawing of rooks. Her piercing whistle would often cause tbe milkman to stop and look around, thinking the call was for him. Polly also learned to Imitate the song of the canary. She would lock up at her little yellow mate In her cage above and call her "Sweet, sweet, pretty little Dick; pretty little Dick.' On one occasion the dressmaker was ugbered Into tbe dining room and waa startled by the bird exclaiming: "He! lo! WUat's your name? What do you want?" She surprised a lady visitor on one occasion with the rather un usual inquiry. "Are you nice?" About this time I was suffering from a painful complaint, and it would al most seem as if my suffering drew out tile bird's sympathy, for on one oc* easion she said to me: "Hello! What's the matter with you? Are you quite well?" I replied. "No. not quite well, Polly," whereupon she replied, "Not quite well." She was once In the room where a member of the family was practicing singing and presently made the remark, emphasizing tbe last word. "What's the matter with you?" When signs of going out for a walk are ap parent we are invariably and repeated ly bidden "Goodby. goodby," with the accompaniment of many kisses. Upon our return Polly inquires, "Where have you been?" and upon being Informed usually replies. "Glad to see you back." During last winter my wife was one morning putting up an old stove for Polly's benefit near her cage. On the half landing the bird watched her with great interest and presently said, "Do you feel cold?" "Count your bless ings" was a phrase Polly found great difficulty In mastering, "Count your bless" being all she succeeded in utter ing and soon dropping this as too trou blesome. However, after a time we tried her again. Now she drops out the "bless" and solemnly exhorts us to "Count your, count your—sins." A few weeks ago a servant was engaged In polishing lirasswork near Polly's cage, and the bird immediately started talk ing to her. "Hello, Polly! What do you want? What's the matter with you? Are you quite well? Do you feel cold? Where have you been?*' and much more. Eliciting no reply, she shouted out. "Why don't you talk?" and drew the retort from the woman. "Because I am too busy. Polly." Polly replied. "Ilow shocking!"—H. Dann In London Spectator. The Gray Horie. Tou may change a farmer's religion or politics, make him thluk be is rich and handsome or sell him a dog. but you will never make him think a gray horse is not a Jewel. I read some where recently that gray bones were not up to the standard, or words to that effect. I never was so astonished in my life. I have always thought, and do now. that gray or white horses were the handsomest, toughest breed on the planet. Tbe celebrated Arabian horses are white or dapple gray. Famous gen erals in all wars have ridden white or Iron gray chargers. Circus men select gray horses to draw the band wagons in street parades. A great packing company always selects Perc heron horses, not so much for tbe color, bat because tbe'r feet will stand traveling on the pavement tietter than any draft breed. It is said that Joan of Arc rode a milk white home, and St. John the revelator saw a svhlte horse in heaven (Revelation vi. _i. Half of the draft horses iu Aroostook arc white or gray, and at other detaJe will see 90 per cent of them of that color. Fair Exchange A New Back for an Old One The back aches at times with a dull, indescribable feeling, making you weary and restless; piercing pains shoot across the region of the kidneys, and again the loins are so lame to stoop is agony. No use to rub or apply a plaster to the back in this condition. You cannot each the cause. Exchange the bad ba^k lor a new and stronger one. H. R. Howell, the well known stone mason, living at 157 Third avenue, Pocatello, Idaho, says: "My kidneys commenced to trouble me with sharp pains across my back and hips and if I took cold was worse. After work ing hard for a few days I felt lame and sore and ill turned around quick ly, a stitch like pain caught me in my back which for tbe time being was very severe. 1 had a very bad attack when my attention was called to Doan's Kidney Pills and I got a box at a Drug Store. They were just what I needed. They relieved me in every way and made me better and stronger than 1 had been for a long time. I still use them once in a while asa tonieforthekikneys."
