To Clean Fountains.
The best way to clean drinking,
fountains which cannot be reached on
the inside. Is to use scalding hot wa
ter and a big handful of shot. Fill
the fountain about a quarter full of
hot water, and then pour in the shot.
Shako the vessel briskly so that the
shot will scrape along the bottomr and
sides of the fountain. This will re
move the scum and leave the fountain
sweet and clean.
Eagle Not Always Brave.
Eagles are generally believed to he
very courageous. That they are not
always as brave as is supposed is
proved by the following anecdote: A
naturalist tells of a combat het~een
ten missel-thrushes and a white-tailed
eagle, in which the latter was thor
oughly vanquished, and was discov
ered squatting down in a shed. where
he had been driven in hope of refuge
from the angry birds.
Band for Pigeons.
To place a band on a pigeon, hold
the hind claw back and press the
front claws through the ring; draw
the ring close up to the knee joint,
and then, when on a level with the
extremity of the hind claw, gently
pull the hind claw through the ring.
and the ring will be in position and
will not, unless it has been placed
on at too early a date, fall.

Made His Demands Definite.
The "minnimuni wage" idea appeals
to one English boy who was asked the
other day by his teacher to write, as
the daily composition, a letter to his
father asking for an increase in pock
et money. The boy set forth the need
of large funds, and ended with a
courteous demand for a "minimum
sum of money." One of the reasons
for the demand was that the boy did
not get enough taffy to eat and had
no papers to read.
Sadness of Unbelief.
I look upon unbelief as the greatest
of calamities. It is the loss of the
chief aid of virtue, of the mightiest
power over temptation, of the most
quickening knowledge of God, of the
only sure hope. The unbeliever would
gain unspeakably by parting with
every possession for the truth which
he doubts or rejects.-William Ellery
Only One Real Road.
There is only one real road to hbi
man prosperity, and it is the same
for a nation as for an individual. That
is the honest road of hard work un.
der free institutions, and when they
tried to teach people that they could
be made rich by some short cut, they
were doing that which was thoroughl
ly dishonest.-Walter Long.

It seems to me that the wit of man,
