HABITS OF THE HEDGEHOG.
, '1,' ' I
beatroycr of Cokroi&hen -Hour II.
. Oct the, Iletlcr of Adders.
The hedgehog, that' butt of Juvenllo
rustic horseplay, is tho possessor ofj
tastes which, like Bam Wcller's knowl-
odgo of London, aro "extensive and !
peculiar.'" Hcorning rastiuiouflnesa n
can mako a hearty meal of nearly any
insect and Is ono of the few verte
brates which can tackle the repulsive
cockroach; Foif effectual extermina
tion of beetles and crickets It Is as
useful as a mongoose among the rata,
but it is not generally known that It
has a partiality toward snakes and
adders. The methods it employs for
the attack aro interesting.
Having como upon the adder it
goads that reptile to the offensive and
at the first dart immediately rolls Into
a ball, the Edinburgh Scotchman says.
The adder is then left to attack the
spines, In which encounter' it natural
ly comes off second best. After a
little, when the hedgehog feels that
his antagonist has exhausted his pow
er, it once more opens out and makes
a blto at the adder's back, thereby
breaking its spine. It then proceeds
to crunch the whole of the reptiles
body by means of its powerful Jaws,
and after that It la said to start at
the tall and devour Its prey. Of eggs
the hedgehog 1b also very fond, there
by giving Just cause to keepers and
farmers to destroy it on sight
Cases have been known where
hedgehogs actually forced the hen
pheasant off her nest and then pro
ceeded to demolish the contents.
Thero Is a tradition among country
people to the effect that the hedgehog
will suck the milk from cows, who
certainly show strong aversion to the
hedgehog, but eminent naturalists
scout the Idea, their explanation be
Ing that It is the heat of the cow
which attracts the' hedgehog, the cow's
dislike being no doubt caused by un
pleasant contact with the prickly
Bptnes. Hedgehogs are invulnerable
to moat of their enemies except man,
although the wily fox has been known
to get the better of them occasionally.

An absurdly worded statement of a
fact which was not in Itself remark
nble recently tried the gravity of the
listeners. It was on tho occasion of
tho funeral of an elderly woman In a
New England town. She had left an
old mother, nearly ninety years of age,
and an only son who was well on to
ward fifty. .
Tho services were conducted by a
timid young clorgyman recently set
tled over the parsh. After praying
for many and various things he said:
"And two we especially pray that
tho Lord will comfort and sustain in
their loss and sorrow. Ono Is the or
phan, who, although no longor young,
is an orphan still and must so con
tinue. The other is tho mother, far
