Work ou the new sc hool building
progressing rapidly as oeaihlo under
all the circumstance. It Is uow suf
ficiently oomph-ted to give a very fair
Idea of It exterior appearance, aud, In
our opinion, architect C. B. McNally Is
to be compllineuted Usiu the skill and
artistic taste manifested In the design
ami general structure of the building.
The exterior view Is very pleasing lo
the eye, and quite artistic in style and
finish. The genera! structure of the
building could hardly be better adapted
to (he purpose Intended than It Is. The
entrance way affords ample room for
accew into and exit from the main
building, aud tbe large halts, which til
vhle tbe four school rooms (two ou
each aide) of both upper and lower
story, are amply provided with suita
ble cloak rooms, etc. The school rooms
will be heated with steam from an en
glue in the basement. Mesm. Bhiiin
Bros, are to be congratuhited upon the
artistic style they have pulntcd the
building. Tbe many glowing colors,
pink, white, cream, brown, etc., give
th building a gorgeous exterior, and
makes It very attractive to the eye.
There are three clock dials painted on
the cupola, oue facing south, one enst,
aud the other north, while "public
school" and the legend "IW atnudt
out In bold relief upon the front of the
bell tower. The mechanical work, fc,
the wood structure gives evidence of
first-class workmanship, and the brick
work of the basement Is fairly good,
but the archways umlcruenth the
building evideutly need attention.

Harking of !.
In writing of the native dog of OeB'
tral America Frederick Boyle brings tor
ward a theory as to how dogs form the
habit of bsrluug. He was discussing
with an old resident of the country tome
trait of the "coyote," as the native wolf
ia called, but which more nearly roeero
bles the dog.
Dogs will never go wild to long as
they can find a master to serve, and
more especially trained dogs. The coyote
never barks, and only galloiis when pur
sued. In regard to the first of these
points, says Mr, Hymn, a remark made
by an old Indian struck mo.
"Why wont these coyotes bark uke
other dogr I asked him, pointing to one
was tryiug to reclaim, "and why do
they only howl ana the pups gmntr
Hw snawer was, "He won't learn.
"Not learn?' said L "What do yon
'No," be replied, "not learn, for if be
wre of an honest breed be would bark,
to try and Imitate hi master, or at all
vents tlie other dogs, but all barking
proceeds from dogs imitating their mas
ter SBbout. 1 be master shout to frighten
away cattle from his maize field the
dog barks directly; the master shout to
drive iu cattle to the corral, and the dog
barks also. In fact, the dog imitates hit
master when he barks; be trie to speak,
I give this curious observation at tbe
only attempt I ever heard to account for
tlie barking of our tiune dogs. No wild
breeds make any noise except howling
and snarling, nor under the best cir
cumstances will they learn to bark until
the third or fourth generation, a length
ot trial which Mr, Byam doet not ap
pear to have given the coyote.
A Thief lie too tor.
"When wo started I noticed," said one
of a party of jewelers who bad camped
tn the wilds of Canada, "that one of our
number was incnuiliered with a large
box. The second day in cnnip twe
watches disappeared, and each member
of the party began to look upon Uie
others with silent suspicion. Finally, as
the thefts were repeated, a meeting was
called, and every man pleaded not guilty.
No one up to that time suspected tlie
honest French Canadian lad we hod en
gaged as a servant. lie was questioned
and nlao entered a prompt and emphatic
denial. We all believed his protestations
of innocence except the man with the
" 'Gentlemen,' said be, 'somebody in
the party took those watches, and I pro
pose to Ami out who. I have here a thief
detector,' pulling out an electrio battery
and winking at the crowd. 'If there is
thief among us this will point hun
out.' Every man took his turn at the
battery. The boy watched tho perform
ance in wonder. He hod nover teen
inch a queer arrangement before, but as
everybody who touched the coils escaped
without harm he stepped bravely to the
front when it came to his turn and took
hold. A sudden change dime over b im.
The owner of tlie battery had turned on
its full force, and the victim gave a yell
of pain and horror, and fell to the ground
screaming: 'Save met gave met I took
'em, but I'll never do it againr" Jew

satisfactory results cannot be obtained- We Are Here

Tha Armenian Houaas.
The Armenian houses of Armenia
proper are by no means comfortable.
The poorer classes have homes th
would hardly be considered fit for cows
In America, and in fact the cow live
with tho family, The floors are below
the level of tlie roadway, and there are
little windows about the size of port
holes, Most ot the houses are of one
story, and it is not uncommon to build a
house against the side of a bill, so that
there will be no bock wall. Stepping
down into the house you find the cow
stable on one side and on the other the
kitchen and the private apartmonts of
the family. .
Each room has a stone fireplace, and
all tlie cooking is done with cow dung
mixed with straw. There are no tables
and few chains, and it is a curious thing
thut a largo part of the heat of the room
comes froni the animal heat produced
by the cattle in the stable which adjoins
the kitcheu. The houses of the wealthy
and middle class of Armenians are more
comfortable, and in the big Turkish cit
es you will find Armenians occupying
palaces. In the country, however, they
havefowof the comforts of Christen
dom, and the chief furniture consists of
divan running around three sidas of
tho room covered with Portion rugs
and resting on a carpet of gray felt
