They Are Sought by the Smithsonian
Institution. Eight hundred night herons are wan dering free about the United States, ach wearing on one leg an aluminum -band inscribed "Smithsonian Institu tion" and a cumber. If any person shoots one of these birds he should write to Paul Eartsch, biologist of the Smithsonian, telling where it was and how large was the bird. The night heron is one of the most beautiful of the aquatic birds of America, but scientists know less about it than they are satisfied with. Last year Mr. Bartsch discovered, several breeding places of these bird's on the Potomac in the District of Columbia. Recently he visited the place with several as sistants in the night and the 800 aluminum hands were fastened to the legs of as many young herons. Science is anxious to Imow how long the night heron lives, where it spends the win ters and how much of the country it covers in its wanderings. It is be lieved that hy the time a few of the numbered aluminum bands have been reported some of these facts will have been established to the satisfaction of the ornithologists. Cleveland (O) Plain Dealer. THE RAINFALL IN ENGLAND. Cyclonic Disturbances Had Little Ma terial Effect. Fortunately for the south of Eng land the cyclonic disturbances, which this year have been more than usually numerous, have kept fairly regularly to their normal track, says the Lon don Chronicle. This course has tak en them across Ireland and Scotland, and as a result the rainfall account In these two countries is now much ahead of the average. Scotland north has had an excess of nearly ten inches the surplusage in the west and east heing nine and five inches, respective ly. Ireland has beaten the average by between five and six inches. The south of England has had but a trifle more than its usual allowance the eastern counties, on the other hand, being nearly an inch short. Advancement of Women. At a meeting of the English Wom en's Liberal association a letter was read in which the daughter of George Meredith, the novelist, said: "My father, George Meredith, wishes me to cay that it heartens him to see women banded together in union. What na ture originally decreed men are but beginning to seethat they are fitted for most of the avenues ooen to en ergy, and by their entering upon ac tive life they will no longer be open to the accusation men so frpquently bring against them of their being nar row and craven. Much more he could say, but he has short time at his com- mand." A Good Place to Stop. He really ought not to have gone Into the Latin class that day.

My trade is with nice people, and when fashionable women come into the shop I have to tip my hat to them. A butcher's fingers are always Snore or less greasy from handling the meat, and in about a month a new hat is no longer fit to wear. Grease is about the only thing that won't come out of a derby, and I will be the hat ter's best customer until the weather grows warm and I will be able to go bareheaded." Production of Nitrate of Soda. The annual report of the Nitrate Association of Chile, which controls the world's supply of nitrate of soda, shows the production in 1902 to have been 2,982,522.80 pounds from sev enty-eight works. The nitrate beds are near the surface and are worked as stone quarries. It is anticipated that the immense amount of nitrate the United States now gets from Chile for use in fertilizers will ulti mately be supplied by factories mak ing it by electrical process from the air, as is being done at Niagara Falls.

STATISTICS OF NIGHT HERONS THE OUTLOOK FOR AUTHORS Really Good Writers Ne.J Not Fear Discrimination The rush of the crowi to read a book which may have no literary merit or vitality, either of roate/ial or of presentation, simply because it is talked about, is never wholesome, and if the crowd has grown move critical and clear-minded in its judgments, and has ceased to move upon sudden impulses and learned to decide for itself, the loss will fall, not on writers of real merit, but on a few whose re wards were generally beyond their deserts. The average of literary work in this country in many departments is high. If great books are not pro duced in large numbers, good books are produced in very considerable numbers, and in soundness-of knowl edge, in good taste and literary work manship, a great advance is evident over the work of an earlier generation. It is a period of quiet progress, a time of preparation rather than a time of accomplishment. JOKE ON SWEET CHARITY. And the Colored Porter, He Thorough ly Enjoyed It. The other day a colored porter from, one of the hotels was sent to buy some tin cups. After making the purchase he started back to the hotel and met one of the hostlery's best patronsa commercial travelerand the latter asked the negro to carry his sample case to a Washington street store. A few minutes later the negro, sam ple case, and tin cups, were in front of the store. The traveling man was in the store. While waiting for him, the negro sat down on the sample case, and in less than a jiffy fell asleep. One of the tin cups was in his hand, and it fell forward, as does the cup held by a blind man. Perhaps you won't believe it, but that negro collected 43 cents while he slumbered. Passersby thought him a blind mendicant. And maybe that por ter didn't enjoy the joke! He did 'deed he did.Indianapolis News. What One Man Said. At the City Federation meeting In the Waldorf there were many amusing incidents. Husbands of the broad minded women tarried in the ante room waiting for their spouses to go home. One of these patient escorts was Leroy Sunderland Smith. He gazed through the glass doors once, sighed and returned to his chair. Men would come, inquire for their wives, and then retreat to the cafe below. One man heard a few minutes of a certain paper. He said: "If these women's clubs did not struggle with the prob lem of how to raise other women's children they would have no excuse for being." He flung out the last words savagely and then disappeared to the place where highballs are con cocted.New York Press. An Enterprising Woman. Miss Jessie McCubben of Alamo, Oregon, is the owner of a valuable mining claim in the Granite district, which she "jumped" precisely as the year 1903 came in. Learning that the claim would be vacant the 1st day of January, she drove through a blind ing snowstorm on the night of Dec. 31, the mercury 14 degrees below zero, and, waiting the advent of the new year, staked her claim, Another pros pector had done likewise earlier in the evening, but Miss McCubben was legally in the right, and the court sus tained her. She is a Portland girl, 19 years old. Reminder of Old Times. A rich man who has joined the mul titude in New York since his quick fortune came to him was entertaining friends at dinner the other night. The service was magnificent and so was the dinner. The wife, gorgeously clad, reigned over the table. During a lull in conversation the rich man watched a servant who was dexterously remov ing crumbs from the table. Then he looKed down the glittering table at his Jeweled wife and remarked: "Sadie, remember when you used to shake the tablecloth out of the back door to the hens?" A Paper May Criticise. A trial jury in England gave the manager of a fifth-rate show a ver dict of $3,750 against a newspaper which published an adverse criticism. The Appeal Court reversed this, and held that the jury had no right to sub stitute its own opinion of the merits of the play for the critic's opinion. The court said it was of the highest Importance to the public that the crit ic should not he exposed to the risk of having a jury pass upon his taste, and held that the trial judge misdi rected the jury. The Artist's Revenge. A. Chinese story tells how a very stingy man took a paltry sum of money to an artist, who always ex acted payment in advance, and asked him to paint his portrait. The artist at, once complied with the request, but when the portrait was finished noth ing was visible save the back of the sitter's head. "What does this mean?" cried the sitter indignantly. "Well," replied the artist, "I thought a man who paid so little as you did wouldnt care to show his face." He Was Kept Busy. That was a curious little confession made to an interviewer the other day by OolonSergeant Barry, for twenty seven years keeper of the stage door at the Lyceum.

Some years ago there was an old Judge on the bench in Berks county, Pa., whose decisions, in consequence of numerous reversals did not always command universal respect. One day, in a case in which he was sitting, one of the lawyers lost patience at his in ability to see things in a certain light, and in the heat of the moment re marked that the intellect of the court was so dark a flash of lightning could not penetrate it. For this contempt the judge showed a disposition to be very severe with the offender, and it was only after much persuasion by friends of the latter that he yielded and decided to accept a public apol ogy. The following day the lawyer, accordingly, appeared before his honor and made amends by saying. "I re gret very much that I said the intel lect of the court was so dark lightning could not penetrate it. I guess it could. It is a very penetrating thing." HAD HAD LONGER PRACTICE. Small Boy's Distinction Between Ap petite and Patriotism* Gen. O. O." Howard occasionally ad dresses juvenile patriotic clubs. An i organization of this type entertained the veteran at a sociable and dinner. A little chap near the general dis played a good appetite. "You eat well, my son," said the old soldier. "Yes, sir." "Now, if you love your flag as well as your dinner, you'll make a good patriot," Gen. Howard's eyes beamed on the boy. "Yes. sir but I've been practicing eating twelve years and I ain't owned a gun but six months," was the laconic reply.New York Times. Most Expensive Tree in World. Probably the most expensive tree in the world is in the city of London, on the corner of Cheapside and Wood street, about midway between the Bank of England and St. Paul's. It is an enormous oak and is said to be 100 years old. It is protected by a clause in the deed of the property which forbids destruction of tree or branches. Architects were compelled to plan a rather peculiar building to avoid the branches. There it stands in the corner of one of the busiest streets in London, occupying ground of enormous valueand positively the only tree in the city of London outside of the parks. Development of the Electron. Dr. Kaufmann of Germany, in a re cent lecture, traced the history of the development of the electron. The roots of the idea go hack about twen ty-five years. The growth of the stem has taken place within the last ten years, and now we have a flourishing plant and a large literature on the subject. Broadly speaking, the latest theory accounts for inertia, suggests a cause for gravitation, explains the leading phenomena of the spectra of hot gases and co-ordinates hypothet ically a host of miner phenomena that seem at first sight to have no discern ible mutual relationship, says Electri cal World. How Snakes Decoy Birds. That the rattlesnake uses his tail to decoy birds has been observed a number of times by a correspondent of the Scientific American, who says: "The snake hides himself in the tall grass and imitates the buzzing of a bee. The insectivorous birds, such as the phoebe and kingbird, are attract ed by the sound, and become an easy prey for his snakeship. I have seen rattlesnakes concealed in the .dense foliage of trees twenty feet from the ground practicing the same deception on the birds and getting tbe bird every time." -'Tv, f,- _______ Tit-Bits. Queen Victoria Paid a Debt. King Edward's appointment of Sir Evelyn Wood to be a field marshal has brought out the interesting fact that the family of the king was once deeply indebted to the grandfather of Gen. Wood, Matthew Wood, a London merchant. It was through the gen erosity of the old merchant that the duke of Kent was able to come to England from Germany so that the future Queen Victoria could be born on British soil. The first baronetcy bestowed by Queen Victoria upon her accession was on Matthew Wood. Microbes Hard to Kill. That the microbes which cause dis ease cannot be killed by firing them out of a gun has been proved in oft_ cial government experiments. Mi crobes of malignant postule, of ab scesses and of the intestine were smeared upon the face of the gun wad, put next the powder and fired into sterile gelatin nad agar-agar. In each case the microbes developed, each after its kind, in the medium re ceiving the wad. Rather Mixed. One of the janitors of a public building, who has more politeness than book learning, was stationed in the hallway of the structure to guide the crowd which was pressing into one of the rooms to see an exhibition of artistic work.

Bulk for Bulk, the Former Are the Stronger. -Eew-peQple_.knaw_.that. a man, hulk for bulk, is stronger than an ox, but it appears that such is the case. The matter was tested net long since at a fair in America, one of the attractions of which was a con+est of a yoke of oxen against an equal weight of men. A drag was loaded with granite blocks, weighing in the aggregate 4,95f pounds. The yoke of oxen that made the trial weighed 3,220 pounds, and twenty men, allowing 160 pounds to the man, were set against them. TUe men _____ hold of the drag first, and easily walked off with it, covering a distance of 95 feet in the space of two minutes. The oxen at their trial moved only eighty-five feet in the same length of time, and the men were accordingly declared winners.Pearson's Weekly. Governor Saves Boy's Life. It is fortunate for one Georgia youth that Gov. Garvin of Rhole Island is a physician and surgeon of standing. The governor and a number of north ern friends were at Andersonville to attend the dedication of a monument in memory of Rhode Island soldiers who died in Andersonville prison. While the exercises were in progress a carriage team took fright, ran away and upset the vehicle. Edwin Calla way, one of 'he occupants, had his leg broken, the jagged bone severing an artery. Gov. Garvin, on hearing of the boy's plight, hurried to his help, tied the severed artery and cut the broken bone, just in time to save the sufferer from bleeding to death. Bank's Burglar Trap Didn't Work. In its account of the recent bank burglary at Allen, the Emporia (Kan.) Gazette explains that the trap set by the hank for robbers did not work. The trap in question is unique enough to be interesting. "Above the vault," says the Gazette, "was a thin ceiling and about! a ton of sand above it This was there in case cracksmen should attempt to blow open the safe, when the ceiling would burst at the explosion and the sand fill the vault, making it impossible to get at the safe. However, the ceiling did not burst and the sand remains undis turbed.Kansas City (Mo.) Journal. Chorus Girls of Wealth.

ROYALTY AT THE RECEPTION Wearisome Duties Imposed on Those in High Position. How royalty and their suites ever manage to survive those weary hours of standing is always a mystery to me, says "The Countess," in the London Outlook. "You get used to it in time," say the maids of honor, but ap parently not till they have been car ried out two or three times in a faint do the gentlemen-at-arms tightly but toned up in uniforms and smothered in helmets get used to the ordeal. It is within the memory of many how in Dublin a certain distinguished viceroy in the middle of a drawing room gave the order to c\ose the doors, and having cleared the room the entire viceregal party sat down on the floor in various stages of collapse, and I often wonder how it is that our own king and queen are not similarly overcome on these occasions. Royal ty is the best paid profession, but as suredly, it must be also the most wearing. THE JOKE OF A KING. Historic Hoax Perpetrated by Gusta- v.U8 IJ I. of Sweden. King Gustavus III. of Sweden had been frequently invited to the little court of Schwerin. In 1783 he paid a visit to Germany and as soon as the Duchess of Mecklenburg heard of his approach she prepared fetes in his honor. But Gustavus, who disdained the petty courts of the small rulers, sent two of his attendantsa page named Peyron, and Desvouges, a valet who had formerly been an actorto be entertained by the duchess. The two personated the king and his minister, Baron Sparre, and sustained the char acters throughout. They accepted as their due all the homage meant for their master, danced with the Mecklen burg ladies who were presented to them, and Peyron went so far as to ask one of the ladies for her portrait. Meantime Gustavus was enjoying him self elsewhere in secret. Overlooked a Detail. A Long Island farmer came to Brooklyn with his wife to do some shopping the other day. On his way back the thought came to him that he had forgotten something. He took out his notebook and went over each item, checking it oft, and saw that he had made all the purchases he intend ed. As he drove on he could not put aside the feeling that there was some thing missing. He again took out his notebook and rechecked every item, hut still found no -mistake. He did this several times, but could not rid himself of the idea that he must have forgotten something. When he reached home and drove up to the house his daughter came out to meet him, and, with a look of surprise, asked: "Why, papa, where is moth er?"Mail and Express. The Long-Sufferincj Editor.

So, when people feel like dying, we hope they will give directions to their next of kin in respect of paying for the same." Painting the Dome of the Capitol. The dome of the capitol at Wash ington is being painted. Every five years its coat is renewed and 15,000 gallons of white lead are used in the process. The work is being done by eighteen men. under the direction of "Billy" Lewis and "Al" Ports. The latter has been employed for such work about the capitol for thirty-nine years. Ports is the only man who ever climbed to the top of the Statue of Liberty surmounting the dome.

The Congo Free State government is enstructing a road in the northern part of the state for the transport of passengers and goods by means of motor cars. The new route, of which nearly 450 miles have been completeu, will join the important trading centers of Dongu and Lado. While making the road a local engineer hit upon the happy idea of driving forty elephants up and down the projected highway until the thick undergrowth was trampled down, allowing the natives to complete the task.

Capt. Charles Kieeffer, a United States army surgeon, says the Phil ippines are Infested with mosquitoes more troublesome and dangerous from a medical point of view than those that swarm in the Jersey swamps. A strange malady known as filaria is traced directly to them, and is com mon among the American soldiers quartered on the islands. Soldiers contract the disease by drinking water from stagnant pools in which the mosquitoes have laid their eggs. The first indication of filaria ap pears in the form of a worm in the victim's thorax. This develops into elephantiasis, which causes the pa tient terrible pains, accompanied by a constant cough. The sufferer is worst at night, and the patient be comes a prey to insomnia. The only remedy lies in an opera tion, which in itself is dangerous and rarely successful. If the worm, which is a female, is injured and dies through the operation, its poison gets into the blood, the disease is increased' a thousandfold and the chances of re covery are small. CAME BACK FOR HIS OWN. How Wilkinson Was Outwitted by a Brainy Tramp. When Wilkinson went to his office one day last week he felt calm and contented. He hadn't any need to worry about his wife's loneliness any more, for he had bought a capital watchdog for her. But, alas! when he arrived home his wife met him with the deplorable news that the dog had gone. "Eh!" said Wilkinson, "did he break the chain, then?" "No," she replied "but a great, ugly-looking tramp came here and acted so impudently that I let the dog loose. But instead of tearing the tramp to pieces the nasty dog went off with him." "Great Scott!" said Wilkinson, "that must have been the tramp I bought him from!" Danger in Big Guns. Recent accidents disabling some of our best battleships offer rather start ling evidence of the weaknesses that are inherent in vessels of this type.
