Protect the Little Birds. The Denver authorities are going after the small boys who have been kill ing birds with “beanies,” sling-shots, blow-guns, air-guns and Flobert rifles. Tho law against tho destruction of song and insectivorous birds is very strict, the penalty being a fine of $5 to SSO for each bird killed, with costs of suit. In speaking of this matter, the Den- ver Republican says: “Apart from the protection to which the birds are entitled on their own ac- 1 ccount, they should be spared on ac- ■ count of their song, the cheerful look 1 which their presence lends to the neigh- 1 borbood and their great value as insect j destroyers. This last has been thorogh ly tested in certain communities where, ' for certain reasons, the birds disap- , peared and where insect pests of all 1 kinds in consequence Increased to an alarming extent.” , For Sale, at a Bargain.

Finally another woman joined us, and instead of taking a vacant seat i car the door on the ‘ladies’ side* she walked the entire length of the car and sat down alongside of me. This eccentricity on her part impelled me to watch her more closely than good manners possibly warranted, but I solved the mystery to my satisfaction. She paid the conductor with her left hand!

A M Km * Cold-Blood*4 Ytnoloy Meets with Npeedy PullksML A sergeant iu the Second cavalry re calls an incident iu his life ia the Milk river country, Montana. He was then a tfffJTToi-rAfcnhlboine. One day he met an Indian, and, riding along together, the soldier proffered him a pipe, which the red man smoked peacefully. After traveling thua all the morning, they come to a creek, and the Indian reined up, saying that he was going down the stream, whereas the mail route led upward. So they separated, and, when the soldier had gone about 50 yards, he turned in his saddle to wave another farewell. To his horror, he saw the Indian in the act of drawing a bead on him. Quick a* a flash he tumbled off his horse, un slung his carbine, and returned the fire of the treacherous savage. The Indian then fled, with the soldier in pursuit, when suddenly the Indian and his horse disappeared from sight. The soldier followed up carefuly. until he stood on the brink of a precipice, 200 feet in depth. At the bottom lay the Indian and his pony, both deal. The faithless Indian, in his hurried attack, forgot about this cliff, and in hla flight went to destruction. M*t tbs Bight Prescription, Dr. Liddell’s morning levees were crowded beyond description.

They have the same polish and workmanship; use will commonly show the difference. To make the dis tinction quickly place the tool upon J i stone, and drop upon it some diluted nitric acid (four parts of water to one of acid). If the tool remains clean it is of iron; if of steel, it will show a black spot where touched with tha acid. These spots can be easily rubbed off. Aa As* Reply.

CONNECTICUT'S GYPSY PRINCE. Ms Matas Bosnia* floras Trading Toss* of tta Coutrjr. For over forty years a family of gyp sies have been residents of this state, ▲t the present time one of them claims to be the head of the gypsies in this country, says a Bridgeport correspon- j dent of the New York Sun. He is Prince William and lives with his fam ily near East Hartford. The East Hart ford branch is the main branch of the ' family. All the male members of the family are born • horse traders and arc > known all over New England as upright ; and honest business men. Attached to 1 their residence at East Hartford are stables which in winter arc always filled with choice horses. One of the interesting sights at the bam are the w»gons In which 1 Vince William and family go off on their annual trips. These wagons cost from one thousand to twenty-five hundred dollars each. There arc brandies of the family in New Haven and also in this city, and when one of these trips about the coun try takes place the other branches join it. The trips are usually begun about the Ist of August and sometimes ex tend into the winter months, the family traveling in the south when cold weather arrives in New England. The family lately returned from a trip which was begun lost August. On these trips spare horses arc taken along to trade. This means a cavalcade of a dozen gorgeous wagons and about one hundred horses. The entire family, men, women and children, go along. The party keep together, traveling by easy stages, about twenty miles a day being considered n good journey. When hurried they can make forty miles a day. The place selected for the night’s resting-place is usually a grove. There the wagons are drawn up in a circle, the fires lighted and supper prepared. After the evening meal the entire fam ily gather around Prince William’s tent or wagon and the affairs of the family are discussed. A watchman patrols the camp all night to guard the horses. Tuassre la a Mortal Oromod. Near the battlefield of Marathon, in Greece, a prehistoric burial mound re cently opened yielded eleven old Mycenaean vases, two of them gold, and some gold earrings. At a place called Krikella, where the Gauls were driven back by the Greeks in 279 B.
