I am a little feller wtio Loves swlmmln', like all fellers do, And all my mother talks about My Rlttln' drown'd can't keep me out. And w hen It's hot nix times a day I'm In the pond. The fellers say I beat a duck.' But ain't It queer When I'm In swlmmln" half the year To bo a-scared of water when Ma says: "Come, iihnnle! Little men Must all be clean for Sunday and The tub Is ready. Understand?" It's awful hard, but ma don't care. And walks me In the kitchen where I have to strip myself and get Hlght In that tub of water wet. While mother, In her apron long, And sleeve tucked up, and O, so stronf, Just rubs and scrubs with soap on thick, No matter how I yell and kick. "My stars!" she says, "I never knew A boy could get so dirty. You Must wallow In It." Then she rubs And digs In tender spots and scrubs Twice hnrder spite of all my cries. And gets the soapsuds In my eyes, And then I howl, 'cause, O! it smarts Like fury, and then mother parts My eyelids and blows In 'em till The hurt is gone, and then she'll spill Col J water on me so I won't Catch cold, she says, ard yellin' "don't! You'll kill me," will not make her stop, Nor kickln', though I make a slop. O, dear! It's awful frerzln'. Then "You're clean," ma says, "Jump out," and when I'm quick as llghtnln' out the tub She takes a towel and she'll rub So fearful rough It takes the skin 'Most oft and makes more yells begin And when she stops, from toes to head All over I'm a steamin' red. And feelln' splendid everywhere It beats our vwlmmln' hole for fair. Then mother hustles me right In My canton flannel night gown clean Made like a bathln' suit entire And warm from hangln' by the fire. Then oft'a shoutln' In my glee I race upstairs and mother, she Comes laughln' after me and then Beside my crib I kneel, and when My "Now I lay me" prayer is said Ma tucks me snug and warm In bed, And with a loving good-night kiss leaves me to close my eyes in bliss. A feller hates a bath like fun And always kicks but when it's don He feels so awful nice and clean And line and srrumptiouB and serene That he's Just glad his mother made 1 Urn take it. Huh! If he's afraid Of wushln' then he shouldn't play Out In the dirt that's what I say. H. C. Dodge, In Chicago Daily Sun. AUSTRALIA'S FLAG. New Antipodean Confederation. Majr Adopt a Uenlitn Patterned After the Star and Mripm. Every country finds ilistinctiJe na tional flag a necessity. The United States had very lit tic trouble in designing- one for Itself. The colonial flag, which 'consisted of 13 red and white stripes and the union jack on a blue field, was made over into a very satis factory banner by leaving off the union jack and filling in the field with white stars. Australia, whose government was changed from that of a colony to a confederation of states on the 1st of January, has ns yet no oflicial flag to distinguish the country among nations. PROPOSED AUSTRALIAN FLAO. Newspapers in Melbourne and Sydney have offered prizes for designs for a na tional banner. The design shown in this drawing was recently awarded a prize, and is, so far, the favorite with the public. The six red stripes stand for the five states of Australia and Tasmania which arc in the confedera tion. The union jack signifies the con nection with Great Britain, and the five tars In the field are thoseof thesouth cm cross, the best know n of the south ern constellations. Altogether it means: The United States of Austra lia under the rule of Great Britain, lit, by the stars of the southern cross. The contest, which was closed February 1, excited the widest popular interest throughout Australia. The adoption of the design will rest with the Austra lian congress. Pictures of Finn In the Sen. Prof. Boutun has succeeded in mak ing snap stint photographs of fish in the sea, at a depth of about nine feet. His plan is to let down into the water a white sheet and then attract the fish In front of it by a judicious distribu tion of toothsome bait. The object of the proceeding is to increase our knowledge of the movements of fish when not constrained by artificial sur roundings or confinement. It has been proposed to lower cameras two or three miles in the sea and make photo graphs there. by flashlight, but the enormous pressure at such depths would, it is objected, crush the apparatus. THE TERRIBLE DRAGON. Monitor Was Feared In Alt Land Except In China, "Where It Is an Object of Reverence. It is quite probable that the dragon is a memory from ages when our little earth ball was the home of ter rible beasts with scientific names dyosuurians, ichthyosauri, pterydac tyls and the like for it figures in the myths of all nations. Very likely prehistoric man took his notion of such a creature from real aud far A CHINESE DRAGON. more horrible monsters, sending It down through generation after gen eration of his children. China the dragon kingdom seems to be the only land where this much abused beast is looked upon with any sort of tolerance, all other folk giving it credit for being a fire breathing devourer of men and plac ing it upon the same moral plane as the snake, another well-disposed rep tile that has been given u very bad character indeed. St. George, Eng land's patron saint, was a killer of dragons. Kichard II. Geoghegan, acting Brit ish vice consul at Tncoma, and a scholar who has lived in China many years, hns recently been at some pains to redeem the dragon's reputa tion. The beast is reverenced in his own slant-eyed land, and tradition says that one day 2.S00 years ago while Emperor Fu-hsi wbj walking beside the Iiiver Lo a yellow dragon rose from the water and taught him the art of writing, giving him an al phabet by which the Chinese could record their history. If the monster had turned the River Lo into gold he could hardly have given so price less a gift to Fu-hsi and his descend ants, and that the Chinese hold him in grateful rrnipmbranee is much to their credit. The phoenix, tortoise and tinieorn nre likewise sacred, but the dragon is chief. To this day, the emperor's throne is called "lrrng wei," while his sublime presence is referred to as "the dragon counte nance," "lung-yen." , The monster in our picture was drawn for Mr. Geoghegan by a Chi nese artist in Taconia, and is prob ably ns near (he real beast as it is possible to come. It is shown rising from the waves of the River Lo amid flames, and the round object be tween its claws is "the pearl of mys tic virtues" a thing so mystic that none but a Chinaman can fathom it.

The butterfly invariably goes to sleep head downward, its eyes look ing . straight down the stem of the grass. It folds und contracts its wings to the utmost, partly, perhaps, to wrap its body from the cold. But the effect is to reduce its size and shape to a nurrow ridge, making nn acute angle with the green stem, hardly distinguishable in shape and color from the seed heads on thou sands of other stems around. It also sleeps on top of the stem, which increases its likuaicss to the natural finial of the grass. Side by side with the" "blues" sleep the common "brown heaths." They use the grass stems for beds, but less carefully, and with no such obvious solicitude to compose their limbs in harmony with the eyes of the plant. They also sleep with their heads downward, but the body is allowed to drop sideways from the. stem like a leaf. This, with their light color ing, makes them far more conspicu ous than the blues. Moreover, as grass has no leaves shaped In any way like the sleeping butterfly, the contrast of shape attracts notice. Can it be that the blues, whose bril liant coloring by day makes them conspicuous to every enemy, have learned caution, while the brown heaths, less exposed to risk, are less careful of concealment? Be it noticed that moths and but terflies go to sleep in different atti tudes. Moths fold their wings back upon their bodies, covering the lower wing, which is usually bright in color, with the upper wing. They fold their antennae back on the line of their wings. Butterflies raise the wings above their bodies and lay them back to back, putting their antennae be tween them if they move them at alL -Cincinnati Enquirer. r " 7 CATARRH THIRTY YEARS, A Remarkable Experience of a Prominent Statesman.
