A new danger has arisen to tb mountain laurel, which is the most im portant American wild flower that is la danger of extermination. The spoom and ladle manufacturers and the furni ture makers have for some time wrought great havoc among the rhodo dendrons and kalmias, and now tb I pipe-makers are after the roots of th laurel. The mountain laurel ought never to be used for Christmas decora tions. It is too rare and choice a plant and always will be. The laurel is a slow grower, and demands peculiar conditions of soil and shade. Eastern ers ought to be as proud of it as th Californians are of their big trees, and protect it by law. The amount of lau rel shipped from Maryland and Vir ginia for use at Christmas time is small compared with the quantity now used all the year round to decorate th fruit stands in the big cities. Country Life in America. ForROt His Address. Mortimer Menpes tells the following story of Whistler, who was to deliver an address one day to the Society ot British Artists: "The master at length entered, faultlessly dressed, walking with a swinging, jaunty step, evidently quite delighted with himself and the world in general. He passed down the gallery ignoring the assembled mem bers, and walked up to his own picture. And there he stayed for quite 15 min utes, regarding it with a satisfied ex pression, stepping now backward, now forward, canting his head and dusting the surface of the glass with a silk pocket handkerchief. We watched him open-mouthed. Suddenly he turned round, beamed upon ur, and uttered but two words: 'Bravo, Jimmy!' then took my arm and hurried me out of the gal lery, talking volubly the while." The Rubber Man. The rubber man is a recent arrival in town. His stock consists of two bags, one of which is filled with penny toys. Taking a position in front of a school house at the noon hour, he shows his goods to the children and tells them to bring from home anything composed of rubber, and receive a toy in exchange. Old rubber shoes, mackintoshes, water bags, all sorts of things mad of rubber, are exchanged after lunch, and the man departs with a ioad of rubber and the satisfaction, no doubt, of having had the best end of a lot of small bar gains. N. Y. Post. Bird Locomotion. Every bird possesses a different style of propelling itself through the air. II one will observe closely one can soon learn to know a bird by this, even when too far away to see how it it formed or plumed. Of course, in some Instances, as with the sparrow family, of which there are in the United States at least 60 common varieties, this is impossible, for- many of them fly in much the same way. It is hard to tell the difference at a distance, also, be tween the jerky flight of the sparrow and the cedar bird. The one help is that the last named generally fly in flocks. Electric LiKhts. The fact that 75 per cent, of the central electric stations of the United States are in places of less than 5,000 inhabitants, as compared with 22.8 per cent, of the gas plants, indicates the wider distribu tion of the electric stations which have enabled the inhabitants of the small places to enjoy illuminating facilities confined heretofore to the larger cities and towns.
