The grizzly bear, says Mr. Enos A. Mills, Is superior In mental power to the horse, the dog and even the gray wolf, and In his book, "The Grizzly," he offers convincing evidence of his statement. A grizzly cub In Yellow stone park, he says," once found a ham skin a prized delicacy. Just as the little fellow was lifting It to his mouth a big bear appeared. "The cub Instant ly dropped the ham skin, sat down on It and pretended to be greatly Inter ested In watching something In the edge of the woods. Another young grizzly in the Yellow stone one doy found a tin can that was open at one end and partly filled with fish. Be raised It In his forepaws and peeped In, then deliberately turned the can upside down and shook It. Noth ing came out. He shook again, but still nothing came out. He then placed the can on theground, open end down, and hammered the bottom of It with a stone until the fish dropped out In a zoo oneflay a piece of hard-tack that a grizzly bear wanted fell Into the hands of a black bear. Tbe black bear dipped the hard-tack In water and started to"take a bite. Evidently It was too hard. He put it in the water again, 'and while It soaked gave his attention to something else. When the black bear was notVokIng, the grizzly, standing on the farther edge of the pool, stirred the water with a forepaw and started the hard-tack toward him on the waves. The Instant the first wave touched the black bear he looked round, grabbed the precious hard-tack, which was rapidly floating away, and, pushing It to the- bottom of the pool, put one hind foot upon It.

Y lies a country of hills, known as drumlins, which Is one of the most beautiful bits of scenery In the eastern United States. The term drumlln Is an Irish one, and Is applied to low, rolling hills of glacial origin which ex ist in that country, and also In parts of New York and New England. This section between Syracuse and Roches ter Is the very heart of the American drumlins. Most American mountains and hills were formed by violent disturbances of the earth's surface, and their rude origin is reflected in their ruggedness. But the drumlins were built by the greut Ice sheet which once covered all of North America. The. materials of which they are made were pushed to gether slowly by the crawling glaciers, molded and tamped and smoothed by - the great Ice fingers as a child makes mud pies. . . The drumlins look as though they had been designed by some great intel ligence with a sense of beauty, for they rise In smooth, gentle curves. They are remarkably uniform In height, usually a little less than 200 feet, and so smooth and lenient are their slopes that many of them are cul tivated to their summits. Some ' of them are as round as half an apple, and others are long welts or rolls.-: Scattered- among the hills are a number of small lakes and ponds, clear and pretty, and there is good fishing in many of them. The drumlins are a favorite playground of the people In Syracuse, Rochester and other nearby towns, but they are little known be yond the counties in which they lie. The Earth's Crust. The most Important scientific inves tigation of the last year In any coun try has probably been the attempt to measure the earth's crust. We know very little about the shell on which we live. Scientists have been studying the problem In Hawaii, Tuscany and In Salvador, where the opportunities for Investigation are especially favorable. Much data new to science has been collected concerning the shell. Us com position and probable age. Still other tests have been made in New South Wales, where a great reservoir concen trates an Immense weight of water on a limited area, and Instruments have been devised to measure the movement of the earth's crust under this weight New light has thus been thrown on the action of volcanoes. Boys' Life. . Ground Hogs. In the American Boy Enos A. Mills says: "Two summers while I was guiding on Long's peak, a ground hog summered on the summit. A few minutes after I arrived on top with a party of climbers he slwed him self and waited for lunch scraps. After he was better acquainted he did not wait but expected to have help ings from the first table. His winter den was 2,000 feet below the top,; Ground hogs, especially in spring, wander in search of the first green plants; usually, from their tracks, they know just where these are most likely to be found." Rare, ' However. "Are they happily married?" "How can they be? Why, his wife won't let him smoke In the house." That Isn't always fatal to domestic Lllss. There are cases on record where a man was so taken up with a woman that he actually put her ahead of pipe, cigar or cigarette." Birmingham Age-Herald. PEARL MOSQUE WELL NAMED Structure at Aflra, India, Admittedly One of the Most Beautiful in the World. Among the most beautiful of Shah Jahan's sculptured monuments is the Pearl mosque at Agra. The entrance gateway of red sandstone contrasts effectively with the Interior of white ! and blue-veined marble. An Inscrip tion In letters of black marble states that tills mosque may be likened to a precious pearl, for no other mosque Is similarly lined with marble. The Indian Influence upon Mahome tan architecture of this period Is evi denced In the lotus petal cap decorat ing the domes and In the purely Hindu finíais, legitimate Mahometan mosques bearing instead the simple spire, with the star and crescent. The foliated arches come from a Buddhist source, symbolizing the lotus-leaf shaped aura around the body of Gautama. The pointed upper foliation Is derived from the shape of the leaf of the bodhl, or plpul tree, under which Gautama at tained to enlightenment' and Budda hood, and is commonly used In Bud dhist Idolatry to indicate the nimbus around the bead. . The master builders of Mogul days were chiefly Indians from Bengal, and since they were artists and artisans rather than mechanicnl workers much of the Inspiration of the architecture of this period must be accredited tc them. GREAT WORK OF TEACHERS Theodore Roosevelt's Tribute to Their Services to the Country Surely Well Deserved. Moreover, asjtin incident to' your teachers avowed work, you render some well-nigh unbelievable services to the country. For Instance, you render to this republic the prime, the vital service of amalgamating into one homogeneous body the children of those who are born here and of those who come here from so many different lands abroad. You furnish a common training and common ideals for the children of all the mixed peoples who are here being fused Into one nation ality.. It Is In no small degree due to you and to your efforts that we, of this great American republic, form one peo ple instead of a group of jarring peo ples, i The children, wherever they have been born, wherever their parents have been born," who are educated' In our schools sido by side with one an other, will inevitably grow up having that sense of mutual sympathy and mutual respect and understanding, which is absolutely indispensable for working out the problems that we as citizens have before us. Theodore Roosevelt, in an address before the National Educational association at Ocean Grove, July 7, 1905. The Wigs of Constantinople. There was a special assistant to the French ambassador in Constantinople years ago whose friends In Paris wished to play a trick on .him, and so they told him to take a cargo of wigs with him to Constantinople, and he would make a lot of money. The man bought the cargo of wigs, .only to find on arrival that the people had never heard of wigs and had no use for them whatever. The ambassador noticing that his friend was melancholy, discov ered the cause to be the unsold cargo of wigs, so he told the story to the grand vizier, who told the sultan. Whereupon the sultan sent an order to all the synagogues in the city that all the Jews In the city must wear wigs. The Jews didn't even know what a wig was, much less where they could get one. And this was Just the moment for the possessor of a cargo of wigs, who put them on the market and made a pocketful of money. . Helgoland Beliefs. Helgoland was called Hertha In an cient times. The island was Inde pendent from the tenth to the four teenth centuries, until the dukes of Schleswlg took It over and used It mainly as a pawn for loans until the Danes acquired it 400 years later. Den. mark ceded it to Great Britain In the rlneteenth century and the British fortified it for defensive purposes. The islanders absorbed customs and Ideas of the many nationalities that visited them, adorning each with a disj unctive touh. They even had a curi ous quirk in their Satan, a wooden leg. Hence the Schleswlg saying: "In HeJ eoland the devil goes on crutches."

AGE AND THE POINT OF VIEW How the Impression of th Youth of Twenty-One Is Properly Resented by His Elders. That reporting Is a young man's business is illustrated in some news paper every day by some news Item telling about something, usually un fortunate, that happened to an old man or an aged - woman, the Ohio State Journal observes. Often the aged person, It develops Somewhere in the story, is fifty-throe, we will say, or somewhere between fifty and six ty. As every editor has reason to know, this youthful point of view of the reporters not infrequently Is re sented by the aged person referred to, To be run over by the motorcar was bad enough, but to be called aged is adding Insult to injury. Nobody un der seventy seems old to himself, and many between seventy-five and eighty would rather not be considered aged. We talk hopefully of a man's being only as old as he feels, but no matter how he feels a man of fifty impresses the youth of twenty-one as verging upon the sere and yellow, if not al ready there. . Our memory goes back to the tune when a woman of thirty- five looked almost hopelessly aged to us, and now we know vivacious girls of forty. And Daisy Ashford opened her immortal work by remarking: "Mr. Salteena was an-elderly man of forty-two. We don't know at what age elderliness begins for Daisy now, but if she lives long enough she will reach the point where her way of classifying Mr. Salteena would be to say that he 'was a young man of forty two. Mnemonio for Grams. Scientific papers are getting to use the metric system of weights and measures more and more, and It has become almost necessary for every one to be able to convert such terms as grams into ounces at once. It is not however, easy to remember that there are 28.35 grams In an ounce. How- ever, if one remembers the sentence, "it converts one ounce,", the figures will instantly recur to the mind. For the number of letters In each word gives 2-8-3-5. - Mnemonics for other terms of the metric system are needed. Bright Idea. "What Is the name of this new dance?"

Cars UVE GIVE HELP TO FALLEN HORSE First Unhitch Him and Allay Fear by; talking to Him Provide Suitable Footing. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) ' When a horse falls In harness he al most immediately struggles to regain his feet. A strong, healthy horse will not remain down voluntarily, but In his efforts to rise he may become frightened. If the driver will give the right kind of first aid he can pre vent serious injury to the animal. Held down by the harness the horse seldom has sufficient freedom to rise to his feet, though enough to struggle and Injure himself by pounding his head on the ground. Accordingly the driver should calm the horse first by speaking In a reassuring tone and, by placing his knees upon, the animal's neck Just back of the ears, endeavor to prevent Injury from struggling or from bruising his head. An Intelligent horse quickly learns to place great confidence in the voice of a good driver. The traces and breeching straps should be unfastened and the vehicle rolled back from the fallen animal. If the horse Is' In-double hitch, the traces and yoke strap should be unfastened and the pole, vehicle, and working mate moved a short distance away. An Injured horse will then regain his feet readily if he has suitable footing. In case the ground is icy, Scatter some fine sand, sawdust, or straw under and in front of him. If nothing of this kind Is available, spread a blanket or burlap-bagging on the pavement to give him better footing as he attempts to stand. -In case the horse needs more help and encouragement, and especially If he lies broadside, roll him on to his chest, with the hind legs under the belly. Then work both front legs for ward until the feet are firmly on the ground and knees flexed. If after re peated efforts and good footing he continues to fall back upon the ground 'there, is possibly some injury to the hind parts, such as a fracture of the hip or leg, which should be examined by a Qualified veterinarian. In all efforts to assist a fallen horse do not forget that in rising to his feet he raises the head and fore Keep Only the Best Mares and Breed Them to Sound, Pure-Bred Stallions of Same Breed. oarts first. This is directly opposite to the habit of the cow, which ele vates the hind parts first. Injuries to horses are common dur ;ng the winter months in cities where mow becomes packed and forms an icy coating on the pavement. In most ities above the frost belt there are "imes when pavements are slippery. Asphalt is' especially troublesomo ind when covered by a very light sleet 'jr snow makes a very treacherous ootlng for horses. The milkman or baker, who drove upon a clean pave ment the night before, may find the streets at 4 a. m. so nearly Impassable rom a coat of smooth ice as to delay his deliveries very greatly or even prevent them entirely. In country districts horses remain .sharp or rough shod for a considerable time. But if they are driven much on city streets paved with stone, cement, or asphalt, from which the snow has been removed, their shoes Quickly be come smooth and it is difficult for the horses to keep their feet. When the front feet slip backward a horse is likely to fall and injure his knees, while' side slipping generally causes him to come down broadside. Shoeing with rubber pads, or the use of emergency appliances may lessen the chance of slipping, but as there is always the possibility of a horse fall ing, even when well shod, careful driv ing and vprecautions against overload ing are important additional means for reducing these accidents and injuries to a minimum.
