The unlives considered the pigeons acred and tlie strike resulted because the police did not take the action 1 which the natives thought should have , followed the destruction of tlie birds. Itoiu the beginning of history there bt u record of animal worship by hu man beings. Tlie carvings and crude paintings of . the earliest Egyptian periods, which are the first picture record that we have, show the rstivm In which the lower forms of life were held. The cat was especially venerated by the ancients anil In the tombs of Egyptian rulers and nobility are found wonderful carvings of cat heads, some times pictured as being on human todies. The tops -of funeral jars which were placed In the tomb to contain either food or toilet preparations for the use of the duud had covers of cat heads wonderfully true to nature. The Metropolitan Museum in New York tias numerous examples of these jurs. Tlie bull was a sacred animal for centuries and some modern savage populations still worship it and lead it, gorgeously decorated, In all their . ftate ceremonials, (ireek and Roman ' mythology ami history are filled with references to the sacredness of the I bull and It figures largely iu both painting and sculpture, j In India, no matter how near to narration a man may lie he will tint i take food from a dog nor kill It to eat. although dogs are recognized as a staple article of food In the Philip- pines and other parts of the world. To kill a dog In India would lie al- uiost sacrilegious. We cannot hold ourselves as wholly Immune from animal worship. To the owl we ascribe a wisdom wholly ab sent from that dull and witless bird.

A NICE way to cook pork chops for u busy day Is to place them over a pan of thinly sliced potatoes, seasoning well with salt and pepper, bake until the chops are well done, and serve from the baking dish. The moisture in the potatoes nnd the fat "ra the pork will be sufficient to make the dish of the right consistency. Kven a small family may enjoy a dish of sauerkraut by covering a quart of kraut with a slice of nice pork steak; usually there Is very lit tle salt needed; bake until the steak and kraut are well cooked. Long, slow rooking of at least three hours makes a fine well seasoned dish. Another way of cooking kraut Is to mil a nice spare rib around it and bake long nnd siowty, adding salt If needed, and pepper to taste. Sour Roast. Take four or five pounds of the rump of beef, one medium sized onion, six whole cloves (stick these In the meat), one-half cupful of elder "Ine Itar, one cupful of canned tomatoes, one cupful of boiling water.

We ascribe great wisdom to the fox whose achievements are not nearly equal to those of the beaver, the most Inierestlng of all the animal kingdom. The reason for the ancient venera tion of tlie animals and the modern regard In Bombay for the welfare of pigeons Is that the ople believe that they have some peculiar power of pro tection from disaster or "bad luck."

"1 think that many women who have j worked as librarians would make first- class booksellers, and I think that a I good huslnes woman could not do better than put her money Into a small book shop in any of the thou sands of towns throughout America where there Is no such shop at pres ent." He added that there was al ways a better chance of succeeding with a bookstote In a town that had a puiilic library, than in oie where there was no such Institution. Vet It is possible for a clever woman to so arrange things that her little store will necome an attraction even in a neighborhood that has not yet acquired a taste for rending. Special programs and lectures could be ar ranged for in the shop; tnere should be a carefully thought out plan by whlen to attract the children; there might be poster displays that would strike the popular fancy. The thing to do Is to get people to come to the store In the first place, by any means that will seem effective, 'the actual buying of books would come later, bat it would come. "Let the women get In now," said the speaker, "for we are at the begin ning of an Important and interesting expansion of retail bookselling. The more bookstores there are, the better each -will do, for book buying Is a progressive disease. Once you catch It, you enn never shake It off. The Held is tremendous, and there Isn't a more Interesting profession In the world." Toe line forms at the right don't crowd, please.

BOY SCOUTS (Conducted by Nuiiunul Council of the Boy Remits of America.) SCOUTS SOW GOOD HABITS Scouts everywhere i.re Interested In gardening and forestry. In a recent Issue of Roys' Life, the chief scout executive reminds the boys of the movement that there Is another kind of planting going on all the time, whether they are conscious of the process or not, Mr. West says: 'Roy time Is essentially planting time. The habits you are forming now are the ones you will reap the harvest of when you get to manhood. And that Is where scouting comes In as a sort of expert gardener to show you what to plant, and how and why to plant It. ; "One of tlie accusations that Is sometimes made, with some Justice, against the American people, as a whole, Is our lack of thoroughness, our tendency to be 'jacks of many trades,' expert nt none. This charge should never be allowed to fit or hit a scout. Thoroughness and the doing of a given task, 'pan honor, to tlie best of our ability should be, nnd I am glad to say usually Is, characteristic of boys who are scouts. Kven if it Is a small thing in itself, like learning to tie a certain kind of knot, keep nt it until ynti hnve the trick completely mas tered, and can tie the knot any time, any place, Just right, as speedily and deftly as possible. "Take the matter of first aid, when you ure learning to make bnndnges aird tourniquets, studying nnd prac ticing what to do In case of a certain accident or how to prevent Hint acci dent from happening, put your whole mind nnd skill into it. Learn to do it, not 'any old way,' but Just right, so that if the time conies when you are called upon, In the flush of an Instant to put thnt knowledge to prac tical use, you will not be found wnnt Ing. "lie prepared. Sow habits of en ergy, patience, perseverance, 'ruin your mind and body to work together In splendid nlllance. Live clean liv!s, think clean thoughts, rend great books, follow true heroes, like Abraham Lin coln and Theodore Roosevelt. Plant for tomorrow und manhood." MESSAGE FROM SPANISH CHIEF.

"The boy scouts of Spain, who are working for their country and for their well-being, follow the Inspiration of Raden-Powell'g Immortal doctrine. cannot forget thnt they are pnrt or that enteririse, or that In all nations they hare brothers with the same de sires and Ideals; and for :hls reason they rally with enthuslusm to tne work of their common publication, which will llnd in us fervent propa gandists If It serves, as we hope, to strengthen and encourage the noble scout alms."
