Bird PrioYlOklV Forced Captain to Al
ter Course <ef His Vessel and Thus
1 Effect the Rescue of Drown*
Ing Men.
The following story was published
by a sea captain In "Aftonbludet" of
Stockholm recently. There uro many
people still living In Arendal who re
member the occurrence which Is here
One dark night several yean ago a
sailing vessel from Arendal, Norway,
?was crossing the north Atlantic, on
Its :,-ar from America to England.
There was ft Btrou& enol v.lnd, against
which the ship was tacking. As it
drew toward eight bells in the even
ing, the captain was walking back and
forth'on tho bridge, trying to make up
his mind whether to put about or to
continue on the same course for an
other watch or two.
As he walked he suddenly received
a blow on his chest, which, ho discov
ered, had been dealt by a tea bird.
Then his winged assailant quickly dfs<
appeared to leeward.
A few moments later the captain
was Just giving the command to turn
the vessel when he again received a
blow In the chest from the same mes
senger. Then the bird disappeared as
before In a southwesterly direction.
After this had been repeated several
more times, the bird, after each blow,
flying off toward tho southwest, the
captain, who thought thero must be
something supernatural In tho matter,
decided to follow the bird. Instead of
turning back, he caused the boat's
course to be sent toward the south
west. This was no sooner done than
the bird settled down on the ship's
railing besldo the captain.
The boat now sailed at a great pace
before, the strong wind. Dut although
a sharp watch was kept aft as well as
forward, half the night passed and
?V nothing unusual was discovered.
Tho crew began to Joke about the
"old man's" maneuver, and the cap
tain himself doubted the wisdom ol
continuing to sail out of hls'course,
losing distance which a great deal ol
tacking would be required to regain.
At 2 o'clock In the morning he was
on the point of giving the order t'c
turn again, when the lookout on th?
foreyard sung out that he saw a glow
as of a fire ahead.
All the waning interest woke ngaln!
Boon the vessel found Itself ap
proachlng a burning ship, and It la]
to as close as was practicable.
A boat was lowered and found man]
jpe^ floating about on hencoops, ptecei

frojn the burning ship. They wer?

When the sufferers had been ?ared
for to the best of the rescuing vessel'*
.ability and the vessel's bow had been
turned again toward England the sail
ors found that the bird was still on
board. Nor did It leave the boat
again. But one day, after the vesse!
had reached the English channel, on?
of those who had been saved from tin
burning ship kicked the bird to dealt
in revenge for a bite from its! bill.
True Art.
"Critics had prnlsed in*, academlei
bad granted me exhibition space,'
said tho artist, "still I was modest
enough to think I wasn't any great
shakes as a painter. The thing that
finally convinced me that maybe )
was no dub after all was the remark
of a woman who knew a good deal
more about bargain counters than
she know about art. 8he studied a
picture that had made critics over
work their vocabulary In praising it
and her only commtTht was: 'My, I'D
bet the Henrietta cloth in that
woman's tea gown cost every cent ol
$2.SO a yard.'
"Just as a matter of curiosity 1

the dress she wore had cost Just that

With Extinction
An effective argument against the
theory advanced once In a while that
Americans are becoming degenerate
'and are bound to die out, a complaint
alto made by the English concerning
?nemselveB, is advanced by Lieut. Col.
Charlet E. Woodruff, Medical corpa, U.
S. army, who is now stationed In the
"There is no ground for such absurd
pessimism," says Woodruff, "though
as K matter of fact there is plenty
of evidence that certain types in each
nation (British and American) do have
a higher death rate than others and
that there Is u constant slow change
in the general average. Doth civiliza
tions have been built up by immi
grants and It is a law of nature that
change of racial residence is always
followed by extinction or alteration of
typo through the survival of tho fttteBt
for the new environment.
"Moreover, there has been a con
stant immigration into the Dritish Is
lands from the beginning of things hu
man, and the lnfldx of hew blood has
always kept civilisation bumming,
even if each invasion in olden times
did do roy part of what it found.
The same phenomenon is being re
peated in America with the solo dif
ference that the invaders, except in
Mexico and Peru, have not destroyed,
but are constantly building up. The
process of decay of certain types is
also quicker in Amorlca and the new
blood comes into prominence sooner
thnn in England.
"Very few of the descendants of the
signers of our 'Declaration of Inde
pendence are in public life and most
of them are nonentities, while Immi
grants and sons of Immigrants are in
the seats of the mighty. The descend
ants of the signers of Magna Charta
controlled England for many centuries,
though none of that stock is in evi
dence now, while the present control
ling elements date back somo cen
turies and very few are recent arrivals
from the continent.
"It Is high time that we find out who
are tho fittest in each part of America.
Every bit of evidence is of some value
and that is the reason why the tre
mendous victories of the American
Olympic athletes have such a scientific
and popular interest."

Puritan Varan,
Among the offenses of the Puritans,
for the most part left behind them
when they came to this country, was
that of tcrnlng bits of the Bible and
parts of the New Testament into Eng
lish verse. They were much given to
the printing of objurgatory and de
famatory pamphlets, for which from
time to time a scribbling offender
would not find repose at "mlno inn,"
but In the stocks to the amusement
of all tho Idlers of the town.
It was soon after the Reformation
that this spirit of versifying the
Psalms and other parte of Scripture
?Vegan, and - most of the collections
published with quaint titles are now
worth several times their weight In
gold to gatherers of curios. Allitera
tion's artful aid was much In evidence
in such titles as "Seven Sobs of a
Sorrowful Soul for Sin," which com
prised tho seven penitential Psalms
In meter, and a "Handful of Honey
suckles," in which were collated vari
ous blessings out of the book of Don
teronomy. William Hunnls, chapel
master to Queen Elizabeth, turned the
entire book of Genesis '.nto rhymo un
der tho title of "A Hlveful of Honey,"
and Christopher Tye, a contemporary
of. Hunnls," rendered the Acts of the
Apostles In English verse. Put these
were before the Puritans, tho chief
offenders, especially in pamphlets, had

"One of the queerest old human
freaks In New York shows up around

a policeman. "His purpose would not

the boys or send them home or im
