Flies at Night and Catches Bugs and
j Beetles That Are Enemies to
i. Farmer.
At the first plaintive notes of the
jwhip-poor-will in spring, the farmer
isays, "It's time to plant corn." The
bird is the corn planter's calendar.
Also it's the farmer's insect destroyer,
lit flies only by night and catches the
moths and beetles that venture out
jafter the sun 'goes down. Inasmuch
: as many of these beetles and moths
!are counted among the farmers' ene
jmies, the bird is a first-class friend, re
marks the Philadelphia North Ameri
can. It sleeps all day, squatting flat on
:the ground, or in the lowest branches
;of trees. You can approach quite near
to it at midday and it won't wake up.
If finally you interrupt it, the bird wfll
fly a short distance away and settle
down on the ground for another nap.
:, Since, it turns night into day, twi
light is its dawn, and then it does most
;of its singing. So plaintive is the song
!that superstitious persons have long
lassociated it with misfortune. It does
mean misfortune to the moths and
t beetles!" "JlxrGS
Prom a vantage point on a rail fence

the well-fed cat. Every cat is natural
ly a bird catcher and those that are
not sufficiently active to catch grown
birds find an easy prey in the newly
fledged young. It is during the-early
hours of themorning that most young
take the initial flight and it is at such
times thaf the cats go unrestrained.
Every owner of a cat, every cat lover
and every bird lover should see to it
'that during this month, at least, cats
with homes are kept indoors, caged or
tethered, and that every stray, owner
less cat is captured and mercifully put
out of the way."
The Rodin Collection.
France has at last accepted this col
lection offered by the great sculptor
Rodin. It took her three years to de
cide. She always hesitates when au
thentic riches are- offered her. If it
is a question cf horrors like those
amassed by the late Chauchard she
jumps at them. Rodin has collected
many antique marbles, but he has not
admitted the terra cottas of Tanagra
or Myrrhina into bis gallery. "One
may be easily deceived," he said. "It
s so easy to mold an ancient original
in clay. And how are you to detect
the fraud? Henri Rochefcrt had two
glass cases filled with Tanagras which
were false. iThe fraud was discov
ered by analyzing the earth of which

Hoffland, Neb., from a little railroad
siding a year ago, with two or three
cars standing on the track, has grown
until it has been placed on the railroad
map as a full-fledged town, shipping
out thirty cars a day. Hoffland prom

It is all on account of potash and its
by-products. The fields at Hoffland are
the only ones in the United States
.where the almost pure article is
found. In Utah ancTjSouthern Califor

pure potash from the vegetable matter

that necessitates nothing but pumping

the refinery, where it brings the here

A warning that cat3 are to be con
sidered enemies of tree conservation
.because they prey upon birds which
destroy insects dangerous to trees, is
Issued by the American Forestry asso

'says: . -
"June is the month for nesting of
-.birds, it is the month when by far the
largest numbes-of birds of all species
are raising their young. It is the month,
when insect life abounds, N when the
weather is mhd, when storms are few;
the month, by all odds, tke most propi
tious for the birds to undertake to in
crease their numbers. It is a. month,
inowever, when probably the largest
number of birds are killed.

A Willing Worker.
An amusing incident is told which
took place in one of the occupied dis
tricts of Belgium where the German
occupier doles out potatoes to such
of the starving people as agree to
work for him. One recipient present
ed himself before the German author
ities and declared himself quite ready
in return for a supply of potatoes to
work for the German3 and only for
them. He seemed quite decided and
genuine in his offer of work.
"Then you- are quite, willing. to sign
the declaration?" asked 'the German
officer. ' V " - .
"Yes, quite willing." .
"And what is your trade?",
"I am a grave digger," replied the
-Belgian stolidly."0
Complex Bookkeeping.
The one fundamental principle un
derlying all successful business is that
the cost must be less than the selling
price. In the operation of this prin
ciple agriculture is no exception.
Farming, nTJwever, is such a complex
business, and the different "enterprises
making up the farm, unit are so Intri
cately related, "that it requires an ex
pert bookkeeper to juggle the figures
and ascertain whether there, has been
profit or loss.

She Couldn't Have It.
A small boy who was sitting next to
a very haughty woman in a crowded
car kept sniffing in a most annoying
manner. At last the lady could bear
it, no" -longer, and turned to . the lad.
. "Boy, have you got a handkerchief ?"
she demanded. . . '
The small boy looked at her for a
few seconds, and then,- in a dignified
tone, came the answer: "Yes, I 'ave,
but I don't lend it to strangers."
