Rooster Killed by LAlhtalra.
The popular idea that feathers are
a nonconductor of electricity, laboring
under which delusion many people
scary about lightning climb under feath
er beds, even in summer, was exploded
in a very remarkable manner during
a heavy thunderstorm at Chambers
burg, Pa. While the storm was at its
worst a bolt of lightning struck the cen
ter of the public square and landed on
a rooster, which was running across
the opening. It hit him square on the
head, and, of course, killed him instant
ly, and also burned all the feathers off
his back and sides.

THE RUDDY FLAMINGO.
A Beautiful ]grd Which Usamllt
stands on One Leg and Tucks
the Other Up Oat of Sight.
Flamingoes in full plumage are most
gorgeous birds, for their top feathers
are almost scarlet, some of those on the
wing are jet black and underneath some
are white. A full-grown bird is often
from five to six feet in height.
When they are flying they stretch
out their long necks and legs as far as
possible, which makes them look very
funny. This particular kind that you
see here comes from the south of
e France and Spain. They make a noise
- very like geese.
And they build themselves curious
nests of mud and earth scraped together
so as to form a small hillock with a
hole on the top. Sometimes the hillock
is as much as 23 or 24 inches high.
In the countries where they are found
they go about in flocks of 300 or 400 to
gether. When they are feeding senti
nel flamingoes stand at each end of
the flock to give notice of any approach
ing danger. These sentinels don't at
tempt to eat till the others have fin
ished, but stand with necks erect and
heads constantly turning, always keep
ing a sharp lookout.
When flying they form themselves
into bands, each band evidently being
under the command of a leader, and in
spite of their long necks and legs they
are wonderfully graceful.
Like lots of other long-legged birds,
I- flamingoes love to stand on one leg and
ie tuck the other up out of sight.-Phila
d delphia Globe.
