This Bird Can Sew.
The "tailor bird" of India is an ex
cellent seamstress. When this bird de
cides to build a nest it chooses a leaf
that suits its purpose and perforates
the edges with its beak. Then it takes
a long piece of grass fiber and sews
the edges together, making a pocket.
If the leaf is not large enough, it is
pieced out with another leaf. At the
end of the seam the bird makes a knot
in the thread to prevent unraveling.
This pocket is not the bird's home,
however, but only the beginning of it.
The nest is made within the pocket.
The end of a slender branch is always
selected, and as the leaf retains its
natural color the home of the bird is
concealed very effectively from ani
mals and other enemies of birds. Peo

How Two College Youths
" In" Washington.
What Might Be Called a Personally
Conducted Tour, With "Thorough
breds" Doing the Conducting
Didn't Even See Potomac
Two college youths who spent a few
days some weeks ago in Washington
cn route to their homes ii this city
thought that as the weather was so de
lightful, and as they were both expert
horsemen, they would enjoy a tour
of the parks and the surrounding
country, of which they had heard so
much. They engaged what they .sup
posed were two thoroughbred riding
horses, and arrayed in swagger togs,
the5 started out for their observation
They noticed that both steeds had a
furtive look In their eyes that seemed
to be at variance with what the livery-1
man had said about them, and the j
Bight of the youths in their riding
clothes seemed to arouse suspicion, for
horsey No. 1 edged away as far as he
could from the aspiring young collegi
an, who was going to make a record
as a fine -horseman, while horsey No.
2 looked so low in his mind that he
held his head way down as far as the
halter would let him and looked the
picture of shame.
The liveryman had declared that
these two selfsame animals had offi
ciated many times at the finest mounts
In Washington, but the war spirit
must have gotten into their veins, for
the instant their riders swung into
their saddles both steeds made a mad
dash up Pennsylvania avenue, and so
rapid was their gait that some people
thought war had been declared or a
s-econd edition of Paul Reveres had
arisen to warn the surrounding
towns that the enemy was In sight.
. The more their riders tried to calm
them down into anything like a re
spectable gait the more extra speed
did those wretched animals develop.
Ore of the riders, a little in advance
of his companion, yelled: "I don't
know where this horse is going, but
I'm with him, I tell you that," at which
sign of co-operation horsey commenced
to go around in a circle and followed
that up by a route that might be de
scribed as south by southeast.
In the meantime the other man was
having troubles of his own; his noble
beast, apparently a great lover of na
ture, seemed bent on treading a flow
ery pathway by heading for all the
hyacinth beds in the park.
"Onaway, Awake, Beloved," was
their battlecry. Over bridges and
elong dusty highways streaked these
two modern John Gilpins, one of whom
had long since lost his cap and his
hair, but their fighting blood was up
and they hung on with more skill than
One found breath enough to yell:
"There's the Potomac river," to which
the other answered, "I'd like to look
at it, but I'm too busy."
After covering miles of broad high
way and dashing through toll gates
without even so much as "excuse me,
these unrighteous animals commenced
to show signs of settling down and
thejr riders managed to halt them in
front of a rural tavern.
They dismounted, feeling as If they
had been run over by a steam roller.
Horsey No. 1 seemed proud of his
work, but horsey No. 2 had evidently
been to congress and kept his own coun
sel. What those two collegians said to
the liveryman when they got back
could not be repeated in these col
umns. All they know about the scen
.ery around Washington they have
gleaned from an illustrated booklet.

Canadian Appreciation.
And what names were ever better
earned than those thus rendered to
Uncle Sam? (On July last.) They
would be strange allies whose hearts
would not be. warmed by such loyalty
and sleepless energy us the United
States has shown for the cause of the
entente from the moment it declared
war on Germany. No friend in need
could make more strenuous and sus
tained efforts to hasten to lend a hand
than the United States has kept up
from the beginning of its belligerency.
Difficulties that seemed Insurmount
able to anything but American re
sourcefulness have been overcome, and
from this time forth the United Stales
will have to be reckoned with as a
heavyweight in the war. Toronto Mail
