The state of Kansas is going to mate a desperate effort to redeem herself this year on the strength of tbe crop snowing, urty minion bushels is the size of the Kansas wheat yield. Sumner county leads with 4, oo,060 bushels. The price is all right. Kansas wheat will-bring at least fao.uuu.uco into the state. In tome parts of the state It is now sell- lug as high as 70 cents a bushel.

There is au article by Frank M. Chapman in St. Nicholas on "The Little Drummer of the Woods," giving much curiqpa information concerning the woodpecker. Mr. Chapman says: If we bad a woodpecker in our hands. we should see in the beginning that its bill is net slightly hooked, with, the upper mandible turned down at its end and overlapping the under mandible, as in the crow and other birds that "pick up a living," bnt that both mandibles are of equal length and cut squarely off at' the tip. It is, therefore, like a wedge or chisel. i ' 1 j j remaps we up ox tne dim I tongue will be seen appearing through its near ly closed mandibles, and our attention is at once attracted by its peculiar shape. We discover that it ia remark ably long, and when fully extended reaches almost if not qnite an inch be yond the point of the bill. It is not flat, like the crow's, but round and fleshf, and has a sharp, horny point. which, by looking at it very closely, we see has a scries of barbs on both sides. In the meantime our hands have doubtless been pricked by the bird's tail feathers, each feather being stiff, bristly and pointed at the end. Seme of the larger woodpeckers the pileated and lvorybill, for instance have this singular kind of tail feather highly de veloped. The main stem or shaft of tho feather is much larger than usnal, and each barb growing from this shaft is curved downward qud inward and is strong and pointed. Comparing tins feather with the flat tail feather of a crow, we see at once how different it is in form. The wings do not impress us as in any way unusual. Tbey are neither very long nor very short, bnt the ar rangement of the toes is so peculiar that they were at once commented upon ay a blind girl, to whom I had handed a specimen of one of these birds. In stead of the disposition common to most birds, three tees directed, forward and one backward, ww discover two front toes and two hind ones, and we will note also that each toe is armed with a strong curved nail. Tbey Liked Victoria. As an indication of tbe popularity at tained very early in her life by Princess Tictoria it is in ft res tins to hear that great indignation was expressed all ever England when it was known that the child had not been "present at her un cle's coronation in 1 S3 1. Some'said that tbe Duchess of Kent was in fault, oth i blamed tbe prime minister,, and some asserted that Queen Adelaide was responsible for the omission. Letters and articles were published in-all -the newspapers, and the sensation did not subside until the Duchess ef Kent plained that,' owing 'to a weakness of the ankles from which the' little Vicfe- ria was then suffering, it" had been though wiser not to expose her to the long standing which attendance at the ceremony would have necessitated.

There are few tanks at i the'aquarium more interesting than that containing ! the lobsters. The lobsters there now axe ' not great; like some of the monsters that have been exhibited, but they are lively and in good condition, and the display of their characteristics as thqy move about or pause to eat is almost startling to one unfamiliar with the lobster in life. Whoever has picked .up a live lobster in a market and found the big claws drooping, as they will if the lobster hasn't much life left in him, is sure to be interested when be sees the lobster here walking off briskly on his slender legs, carrying his big claws in front of him clear of the ground and his heavy tail clear likewise. His ordinary man ner of progression is forward, and when he turns he swings hie heavily weighted projecting ends with facility, but if he meets an obstruction or an enemy his usual way is to dart backward and per haps diagonally upward through the water, which the lobster can do With great suddenness. The lobster's feeding apparatus is wonderful. About the mouth there are lots of little attachments, all the time is motion when the lobster is feeding, which slice -the food off in little shreds as the lobster holds it up to his mouth. If another lobster should come up. this lobster would know it, ever though the other came up behind or at the side, and would turn to'defend himself or to fight or to nee or to warn the other away. The lobster's long feelers he can pro ject one in one direction and the other in another, and with these, as he moves forward, back or sidewise, he guards against danger. There are perhaps a dozen lobsters in the tank. In the center of the tank there is a little rock. There is likely to be seen upon this rock a little lobster, not a dull, old lobster lying down, but an alert young lobster standing up and sup porting easily his big claws and his powerful tail a young lobster ready to eat, to fight or to run away.

The Zulu jinrikisha men arc com pelled by the English authorities to wear a uniform a white linen tunic and loose white trousers cut off above the knee. They were like children play ug at horse in the nursery, and they uttered continuous native garglings. partly like turtledoves and partly like the halleluliah ejaculations at one of our African Methodist camp meetings. They alt appeared very happy during this performance, which continued so long that I calculated the amount of energy expended to represent about ten miles of unpaid travel. Though the body dress was uniform, there was magnifi cent diversity regarding head decora tion. One would wear a common straw bat hung around the brim with tassels suggestive of a pagoda, and the chief delight of the wearer was in shaking his head for the pleasure of mailing the tassels dance. Another bad fastened pair of cow horns on cither side of his head immediately above the ears, and he, grinned at me so.effesively that concluded he must have taken great pains with the construction of this hideous headpiece. The kinky top of third had been interlaced with an anor- mous profusion of long strings of wool. to which small fluffy balls were at tached at short intervals. The Ijead of a negro so decorated looked like a huge black mop or one of these Skye terrier dogs about whom one is never safe in saying which is the other end. In repose it is uncanny, but when your jinrikisha Zulu springs about in the shafts and throws his head up and down like a colt impatient of the bit the effect upon the newly ar rived is akin to what. I once experienced when a long black log of wood upon which I proposed to rest myself turned out to be a huge black snake resting irom bis gastronomic exercises. Poult. ney Bigelow in Harper's Magazine. Off the Malay Coast. Sailing up the coast in a native craft, you may almost fancy yourself one of the early explorers skirting the lovely snores ot some undiscovered country, As you sprawl on the bamboo decking under the shadow of the immense palm leaf sail which is so ingeniously rig ged that, if taken aback, the boat must turn turtle, unless, by the blessing of tne gods, tbe mast parts asunder you look out through half closed eyelids at a very beautiful coast. The waves dance and glimmer and shine in the sunlight, the long stretch of sand is as yellow as a buttercup, and the fringes of graceful casuarina trees quiver like aspens in the breeze and, shimmer iu the heat haze. The wash of the waves against the boat's side and the ripple of the bow make music in your drowsy ears, and as you glide through cluster after cluster of thickly wooded islands you lie in that delightful eomatose state in which yon have all the pleasure of existence, with none of the labor of livipg.
