Important in a hnrdwarc Btock are tools.
Tools are the. living of the mechanic?the
carpenter. It is possible to produce good
work wjth bad tools, but it's much harder
to do it. Good ones cost little, if anything
more, than the oilier kind. The quality de?

SOME ANIMAL HUNTERS.
Strategy by Which California Coyotes Han
Down a Jaok Rabbit.
I An Indian will often take a deer's
I trail, when deer are scarce, and follow
it for days?, preventing the deer from
feeding or resting and making it so
i weary and careless that in the end ho
kills it by a shot at short range. Proba?
bly the Indians first le;irucd to follow a
deer in this fiishiou from observing tho
habits of wolves, panthers and other
wild and tireless trailers of K?me.
The coyote is not so strong a wolf as
its big pray cousin in Maine and other
wolf countries. Nevertheless ho has
been known to run the jack rabbit down
as surely as death, but in a more expe?
ditious way than the Maine animal
adopted. Whether it is a habit or not of
the coyotes to run jack rabbits in pairs
cannot be said for certain, but u story
was told some t ime ago in a well known
sportsman's paper which, l>cing hacked
by a similar story of English foxes, has
every appearance of being truthful.
The two coyotes were seen to jump a
rabbit one day out in California on n
mesa. One of tho coyotes took after it
on the dead junip, tho other trotted to
n near by rise and lay down, with its
nose on its paws, knowing that tho rab?
bit would Burcly circle. Pretty soon
ajongenffqthe jackrabbijwith|hg Oili?
er coyote benmu, ooth going full tilt.
Up jumped the' waiting coyote, and
away it went after the rabbit, whilo tho
other dropped out of the chase and wait?
ed, as its companion had done, to take
the trail on the rabbit's return. It was
not long before the rabbit was exhaust?
ed by the strategy imd endurance of both
tho animals of prey and soon fell :ui
easy victim to bo eaten by both tho
J. P>. Bonnet of Brooklyn saw a fox
early one morning lying beside the open,
narrow gate of a rabbit proof fence that
surrounded a 40 aero plantation not far
from the Marquis of Queensberry'sgome
preserve in Scotland. Looking over into
tho inclosure, he saw another fox chas?
ing the rabbits that luid entered the
open gate to get at tho cabbages them
The rabbits?eight or ten of them?were
headed for the gato and running like
"cutty ?arks.When one plunged
through the gateway, the fox lying
nlongsido it leaped and hod it by the
back of the neck in a jiffy. Then the
foxes tore the rabbit to pieces and "en?
joyed the feast like honest sportsmen."

WHERE JOHN BULL GOT HIS NAME.
Story of the Origin of Great Britain's
Jolm Bull, the mythical personage
supposed to represent the English peo?
ple and now figuring largely in our ed
itorial writing and in cartoons, was th(
invention of Dr. Arbuthnot in one of
his satirical sketches ridiculing tho great
Duke of Marlborough. In tho opinion of
Dr. Johnson, Arbuthnot was "the first
man among eminent '?Titers in Queen
Anne's time." He drew John Bull as
the typical Englishman?a stout, red
faced old fanner, far too corpulent for
comfort, choleric, bnt withal an honest
and well meaning fellow. Ho clothed
him in leather breeches and topbooLs
put a stout oaken cudgel in his hand
and a bulldog at his heels and set him
up for all time to serve as tho represent
He may have been not so bad a can
cature in the days of Queen Anne, but
today certainly there is much force in
Leslie Stephen's remark that "he eon
pletely hides the Englishman of re;
life." The average Englishman of to?
day is physically no stouter certainly
than?probably not so stout r.s?the uv
erage American, and the stout cudgel
and the bulldog are no longer apt sym
bols of the modern Britisher's disposi
tion. He has lost the excessive pugnaci
ty of his forefathers and is, above all
anxious to keep the peace with his Un
