It was al most too young to run, and tripped over Its feet In the most comic man nerfor all the world like a baby tumbling over Its pinafore. It came slowly lolloping-, lolloping toward us. awwn T Vf" IT! nnd i' held our breath for fear of cnriiiK it away; for It wn a moat fascinating little creature, juat a bundle of fluff and comedy.

In hi book on the North sea fisheries, Neat Green show that the North sea (lubes are Isolat ed In their own little world. for they cannot migrate to the At lantic depths, and, with a few such exception as the eel, deep en linhes cannot enter shallow wa ter. Foraging for food Is the flan's occupation. The North sea nshea will i,ot di-Mfcnd Into the occsn becease there Is no food to attract, their eyes are not adapted to the darkness, and the pressure of tbe water la greater than ordinary fish can endure. In the depths there are no seasonal changes, no currents. Everything la uniform, stagnant, black, and the only fishes that can see are those specially en dowed with enormous eyes to per reive the phosphorescent glow of oth ers of their kind. If they could rise to the conditions of the North sea, these deep sea dwellers wonld be helplexs. If not destroyed by the re lease from external pressure. Cheese Easily Digested. Contrary to opinion held by many people, cheddar or "store" cheese Is not unusually Indigestible or constipat ing. Extensive digestion experiments conducted by the department of agri culture have demonstrated that more than 05 per cent of the protein In cheese Is digested and that 90 per cent of Its energy Is available. One per son who ate cheese as tbe chief source of protein and energy, eating an aver age of 927 ounces daily for more than two years, did a fair amount of mus cular work and remained in good health.
