This Cockatoo Crops Wood.
John Rube, of Kingscliffe, Tn'orth
nts, has an eighteen-year-old silver
crested Australian cocatoo which not
only talks and "sings" but has a ma
nia for "chopping" wood. Each day
the housekeeper provides her helper
with a starch or soap box and the bird
breaks it up with its beak into short
and thin pieces suitable for firewood,
any nails in the way being drawn.
"The amount of labor that bird has
saved in the way of wood chopping
is enormous," the housekeeper says.
"The only thing I have to da is to see
that there is no paint on the boxes."

Several valuable reference books belong
ing to the late H. H. Powers have also
been given. Among the most interesting
of them is the Records of the Conven
tions of the New Hampshire Grants held
during the years 1776 and '77, written
by Dr. Jonas Fay, L'lerk of the Conven
tions and reproduced in facsimilie from
manuscripts in the Congressional Li
brary at Washington. During his term
as senator, the late Redfield Proctor was
told that in a certain collection in the
Library of Congress there were manu
scripts of interest to Vennonters among
them, records of some conventions on
the back sheets of which a farmer had
kept his accounts. Further investigation
showed that these were the original rec
ords which' Dr. Fay, on leaving Pawlct,
gave to his stepson, Jonathan Saflord.
Some time afterwards, a Mr. l)awon
from New York, claiming to be looking
up the geneology of the Saflord family,
obtained this account book from Mr.
Saflord. When it was returned to its
owner, several pages had been removed.
Mr, Dawson made various attempts to
dispose of these pages and finally sold
them to the Library at Washington.
When Senator Proctor was convinced
of the genuipenesss of the records he
caused iacsimihes to be made, one of
which he gave to Mr. Powers.

memory Is Imperishable; that all we
have thought, felt and experienced in
past life is in some way stored up and
may, under favorable .circumstances,
be revived in dreams; and that the
totality of the past is involved in the
present as a rolling snowball gathers
up all that is in its path.

who gave the addres of the evening.
His subject was "The Need of Restoring
the Uible to the Public Schools of VPr.

and original' wit. A large chorus choir

worth League and the Epworth League
was held last Sunday afternoon. Much
interest was manifested by those present.
Servicesere held as usual last Sunday,
conducted by Everett W. Dyer of So.
Eliot, Maine. In tbe morning he preached
a searching sermon on Prayer, from
1 Thes. 5:17, presenting the negative and
positive sides. First, prayer is not an in
formation bureau for tbe Lord; it is not
using words according to a fixed form; it
jS not an eloquent oration for the pleasure
of hearers. But prayer is heart to heart
communion with God, entreating Him
with trust and thanksgiving. When
should we pray? Any time, but specifical
ly morning, noon and night. Where? In
any place, but have an altar. For whom?
For all, but especially for the saints.
Family worship and secret devotion are
perhaps the most important and helpful.
How? With humility, in the Spirit, and
Come to the prayer meeting Wednes
day evening and to the services next Sun"
