WHY SHOULD CATTLE STARVE. Most people are probably of the opialoa that the goat aad the ostrich rank highest as omnivorous animals. It Is aot so generally known, how ever, that a cow takes often very curious things late her stomach, The United Stats departmeat of agriculture gave space ia Its exhibits la the government building to a col lection of various objects which have been taken from the stomachs of cat tle killed for beet at the stockyards The most emaclag of these objects Is the lroa tooth of a huge hay rake, sack as la drawn by two horses upon the Western prairies. This iron tooth is curved, aad is four feet eight laches long, by about a quarter of aa Inch thick. It was taken from tke stomach of a Texas steer, which was to all external appearances la the best of health' when killed. , From the stomach of another Texas steer was taken aa Iron bolt thirteen aad a halt Inches long by live-eighths of aa inch thick. Ia a rather small cow were found objects as follows: Oae masonic emblem, one dime, one copper cent, two watch rings. lager ring and a number of m. In another cow's stomach found oae sliver dollar. one silver watch chaia. one brass hair-pin. a door-knob aad seven nails or pieces of nails. One of tke most curious features of tills remarkable collection Is a lot of twenty-three hair balls. Iheso were all found ia the stomach of a Texas cow which was butch ered at the Chicago stock yards eely a short time ago. When she was killed the animal was la good health but small. She weighed when dressed for beef tM pounds. These hair balls are each a porfeetl solid, hard, circular mass The largest oae Is five laches in Oiameter. and the smallest about aa inch aad a half. The balls are formed by the animal licking Itself. The hair comes off and adheres to the tongue. It Is then swallowed, and once la the stomach la rolled up aad compressed into the globular mass described. Isle's Mill rata. Three years ago the wood buffalo Was supposed to have become extinct Vow it seems that last winter the Indians brought in from the Slave lake aad fence river districts 200 skins of the wood buffalo, some of them of anusal siie and fine quality. The theory Is that the remnant of the great herds that formerly roamed In the Northwest found a feeding ground nut of tho route of Indians and hunters, multiplied greatly, aad were driven South by tho extreme cold of last winter. iiir Mrs. Lyon nuuter, gushingly, ta famous lady explorer When you're sway oa your travels, dear Miss Orb trotter, doa't you long for England, home aad beauty f Miaa Orbtrotter. plain, but intel lectual I long for beauty.

CHURCH FAIRS. KatTltss) That Bs tlssiM.js-1 as the Xa mt Charity. To charge from fifty cents to f 1 for a boutonaiere which represented only the cost of picking the flowers out of the fields is robbery pure and simple, writes Edward W. Bok in the idles' Home Journal. On two dif ferent occasions that I distinctly member wlrcre I waa ar,ked fifty cents for tot five cents' actual worth of Cowers 1 was laughingly told by the young lady to whom tendered n bank note that. "Ws never give change at this fair, and gentlemen like yourself won't insist apon IL we know." It was aot enough that I was overcharged, bet 1 must be twice robbed, and this ia each instance in a church and la the name of charity! Is it any wonder, I ask. that it is so difficult to induce mon to attend bazaars and fairs? They know what is ia store for them if they attend. They know that the innocent twea-ty-fivo cents admission" represents aa exit of $10 to 25. in proportion to their good nature. I am calling this practice by its proper name, because I think it is time that the great and noble works done for honest charity ia this country should not be asked to suffer, as many of them are un doubtedly suffering to-day, from this aad other forms of abuse practiced in the name et charity. And I do not believe that the managers of charitable affairs really have an ac curate realization of the rapidly growing aversion on the part of mea for these events. If they had this knowledge I think they would apply the remedy without delay. I The loose white e-armenta generally by the natives of the trop ics look fitting enough for their ell mate, bat the cliagiag swaths of cloth cannot be as cool aa the c ventlooal clothing of the civilised inhabitants of those foreign tries.
