L^h^^W Conducted by Polly Evarus SCIP, DOG DEFECTIVE, A TERROR TO LAW FRANCES HEINSOHN, 17 Maga zine street, Charleston; S. C., has contributed this account of the deeds of Scip, a veritable dog detective, published by the Boston Record. Scip lives in Old Town when at home, la an undersized cur with bright eyes and sharp ears and is of badly mixed lineage. He is owned by one of the State game wardens, whose duty !t Is to examine certain trains coming down from the game region. Every piece of game must be checked up and sus picious packages examined. The Maine law positively prohibits the taking out of the State of game birds In any way whatever. As the people alight from the train, few notice a little dog dodging about among them, sniffing at this hand-bagr and that bundle. Soon his master hears a little bark. He knows what that means, and, drop ping everything, finds Si'ip dodging and nosing about the heels of a passenger. The warden closes in on thr game "pointed" by Scip, quietly invites the STUNTS WITH MATCHES fia. 1 THERE is nothing easier to amuse one's self with than matches or snlintcrs nf wood. You can mak'! a hundred different combinations with them. Try to make three matches stand to gether and then raise this little tripod With a fourth match. To make the tripod, nick one end of one cif the matches and put the end of a eeooii'l match into this notch Now you have only to lean the third against the other two and you will have a well-balanced tripod. To raise the three matches, place the fourth match gently apatnst the two Joined together, as In figure 2; then push thepe two gradually together unt'l the third match of the tripod falls be tween the two you hold In your hand. You can now raise the tripod. Another stunt—scalier nine matches over the table and ask one of your friends to raise all of them together from the table fry a tenth match." Most people would say it is impossible, but It Is really very simple. . Lay them on the table as is shown in fIR-nre 3. being sure to place the heads of the matches above; eight matches resting on the ninth. How to Make a 5-Foint Star 0k 5 T^ H r^ * I \[ [ X.

The dog has never be'eh known to fail In "pointing" game. He possibly may have missed some, but when he has made up his doggish mind that there is a violation of the law. he has always been correct so far. But inspecting the hand-baggage is not all.of the little cetective s work by any means.. After the passengers are all out he hops Into ihe baggage and express car and applies his sharp little nose to everything in sight. While making his usual Inspection of the express car one day, lie came across a barrel, to all Intents and purposes con taining fish. It certainly had fish in It. Srlp sniffed at it. went on and then came back and sniffed again. Round and round the barrel he went, whining and dancing. With a faith in the little animal born of long experience, the officer investi gated the barrel, and found, in the cen tre of a liberal lining of fresh shore cod, several dozen of plump partridges. fill Now take the tenth match and place It between the heads of the eight where they are crossed and you will then find that, with care, you will be able to raise the ninth with comparative ease.
