half a dozen figures outlined on a wall

of intelligent composition, some attempt

Mosquitoes That Never Lived.
Some of the good people of Stratford,
Conn., decided this year to drain about
forty acres of marsh land and had the
necessary ditches dng. Afterward some
of the ditches were partially tilled up
und the marsh water stagnated therein.
On examination the water was found to

A Parrot Seldom Forgets.
A maiden lady once had a fine talking
bird, but, being subjected to headaches,
she often put him in the kitchen. The
cook objected and said to Polly, "You
horrid thing, I wish you were dead."
Polly soon learned this, and when his
mistress got better and took him to her
own room, he said, "You horrid thing.
I wish you were dead."
This shocked the delicate little lady.
One day she met her rector, and, after
he had inquired about her health, he
said, "How is Polly?"
Then she told him how Polly had af
fected her nerves. The rector said:
"Send him to spend a month with my
bird. He may forget it."
She immediately accepted his offer.
In duo time Polly was sent home, and,
as soon as his mistress went to the cage.
Polly saluted her with:
"You horrid thing, 1 wish you were
dead. We beseech thee to hear us.

A I'otato Vine Imitating the Lemon Trees.
J. W. C. Pogue brought in to Visalia
this morning a remarkable freak of na
ture in the shape of a potato vine upon
which was growing potatoes in all stages
of development, from the size of a mar
ble to one ;'s large as tho averago Early
Rose. The vino was discovered in Mr.
Pogue'si lemon grove. The seed planted
was of the Early Rose variety, and some
of the potatoes will be planted out to see
if they will reproduce. When the vine
was pulled np a few small potatoes were
found at the root, but on the vine there
must have been a hundred. The only
explanation Mr. Pogue can offer is that
the potato must have thought it to be its
duty to produce lemons, as is was sur
rounded by that fruit, and that it
made an honest effort in that direction.
Where Flies Come From.
If by stealth a man should let in a lit

glare the street can pour into it he is
discovered every time. She whose
genius had made every room in the
house a storage warehouse for night air
comes in and wonders "Where all these
flies came from?" He, with extravagant
gesticulation, doesn't know at least he
says he doesn't, and doesn't care, which
is true; what he wants to know is when
they are going back again? Robert J.
