They Havs No Instinctivs Impulse to
Enter the Water.
It has turned out, under the search
ing experimentation of recent years,
that much that we havo supposed to
be instinct In animals is not Instinct
nt nil. For exnmple, the young duck
proves to have no instinctive impulse
to enter tho water, does not recognize
the clement by sight and Is, in short.
In precisely tho same situation as n
chick until, by happy chance, it gets
Its legs wet. Wet legs, however, and
tho lift of tho water on tho body nt
once start up tho swimming reaction,
and awny sails the duckling, as chick
ens and children do not.
The chick, on Its part, has a definite
Instinct to peck nt any small object
that catches Its eye. That tnke9 care
of Its feeding. Hut the chick has no
corresponding, instinct to drink nud
would die of thirst before It would
recognize water by sight alone. Drink
ing it has to learn for itself by peck
ing at dewdrops or spots of light on
the surface of the water or particles
at the bottom of Its cup. Even the
hen, contrary to general belief, proves
to havo no instinctive fear of the wa
ter for her offspring. A ben that has
raised a few broods of ducks and seen
them tnke to the water becomes lilghlj
distressed when a subsequent hatch of
chickens do not swim. In fact. hen-'
have been reported under these clr
cumstnnccs to' lend their chicks to the
waterside and push them in. Mc
NESTS IN GULF WEED.
Breeding Place of the Flying Fish In
the Sargasso Sea.
In the middle of the north Atlantic
there is an area of comparatively still
water almost equal to continental
Europe in extent und more or less
covered with Uoutlng seaweed. It wut
known as tho Mar do Surguco to Co
lumbus and the early navigators nud
Is the Sargasso sea of modern geog
Tho floating seaweed was formerly
supposed to have grown near the Ba
hama and Florida shores and to have
drifted to its picseut position, it Is
now, however, known to grow und
propagate Itself where It Is found. In
it are found globular masses of weed
containing fish eggs and known us fish
Investigations show that the lioating
weed of the Sargasso sea is the chosen
breeding place of species of (lying fish.
The eggs found In the nests were at
tributed to certain species of ilsh found
resting on them, but careful examina
tion of the eggs shows that they really
belong, to flying fish.
Apparently, however, the flying fish
do not make the nests themselves.
Each end of tho egg of these fish is?
furnished with bunches of very long
filamentary tendrils, and by menns of
these the finely divided branches of
tho Sargassum weed have been caught
together in globular nasses. The eggs
may be said to have made their own
nest London Field.
Bismarck and 3.
Bismarck had an intense aversion to
13, but a veneration for the. num
ber 3. His reasons for his pre
dilection were that he served three
masters; ho was responsible for and
fought in three great wars; he signed
three treaties of peace; he arranged
the meeting of three emperors; ho es
tablished tho triple alliance; in the
Fran.co-Prusslau war three horses were
killed under him; he had three names
(Bl3inarck. Schoenhausen and Lauen
burgi; he acquired three titles (count,
prince, duke); tho ancient nrms of Ills
famtly are a leaf of clover and three
oak leaves! Ills family motto, "In
trlnltato robur" ('Strength in trin
ity"), was surely In itself sufficient to
give a leaning In this particular direc
tion. So closely were his feelings as
sociated with tho triple number tljat
the caricaturists represented him with
three hairs on his head. Ho had three'
No 0d Maids.
"We'd havo no old maids If wo took
a lesson from tho ancient BabylonlanB,"
a spinster said. "In Babylon unmar
ried women were graded by tho state
according to their looks. For ajbeauti
ful young wlfo tho state demanded a
large number of gold pieces,1 a less
desirable wife cost a smaller number
of gold pieces, and this money was all
paid out again as rewards to those
who married elderly, unattractive girls.
Thus It cost a fortune to marry beau
ty, but if you married ugliness a for
tune came to you; henco all was hap
piness In Babylon, and old maids were
unknown." ? v
Bollngbroke'S Retort. J ft
When Bollngbroke, who was at Alx'
Ia-Chapelle during the treaty of peace
at that place, at which time his at
tainder was not removed, was asked
by an Impertinent Frenchman wbe(her
he came thero in any public character,
his lordship answered: "Not at all.
I came like u French minister, with no
character at all."

THE MILITARY SQUARE.
A Formation Borrowed by Wallace
From the Flemings.
The greatest of all Scottish annlver-,
sarles is that of Bannockburn, fought
in the yeai 1314. Apart from its bear
ing on the Independence of Scotland,
the battle will always have an excep
tional interest from tho military point
of view, as Bannockburn may be said
to have been the birthplace of the
British square. "Proud Edward's"
army mainly consisted of cavalry,
while thaUof the Scots, on the other
hand, was almost exclusively composed
of foot folk armed with the spear,
and these Bruce threw into "schll
troms." or oblong squares, a formation
borrowed by Wallace from tho Flem
ings, who had employed It with suc
cess nt Courtrny to resist tho charge of
the English cavalry.
Hitherto the mounted mail clad
knight had carried everything before
him, but Courtray and Bannockburn
proved that he was powerless to break
resolute spear armed Infantry drawn
up in "schlltrom." or hedgehog, forma
tion, nnd these two battles revolution
ized the tactics of the continent and
of our own islaud. Profiting by the
lesson which had been taught them
at Bannockburn, tho English applied
tho tactics of the Scots with brilliant
success nt Crccy and still more nt
Aglncourt. As It was the Scots who
may be said to have originated the
British square at Bannockburn, so it
was they again who nt Balaklava were
the first to discard it with their "thin
red line," and now. owing to our
changed conditions of warfare, it Is
discarded altogether. London Chron
icle. MOHAMMEDANS OF INDIA.
Superstition Seems to Govern Most of
Mohammedans of India nro very
superstitious. No Mohammedan will
take a bath on Sunday or Tuesday.
But If ouo bathes on Wednesday all
misfortunes and misery that aro in
store for him till the next Wednesday
will be averted. As a rulcv all Moham
medans bathe on Fridays before going
to perform the Jumma prayers. For
donning new clothes Saturday. Sunday
and Tuesday are regarded as bad days.
If any one dons a new dress or puts
on n now cloth or allows his tailor to
cut a piece of cloth on these dnys. he
will live a miserable life till that dress
dr cloth gets torn or Is thrown away.
If a shirt Is torn nnd if the wearer
wants to stildi It. It must bo taken off,
for If it Is stitched 'while on the body
the person will soon die. A Moham
medan will never allow a barber to
come near him on Tuesdays, for Tues
days and Saturdays nnd Sundays are
bad days for shaving. If absolutely
necessary he will get himself shaved
on Saturday or Sunday, but never on
Tuesday, as his star Is supposed to fall
in blood if he does so. If one receives
money or some valuable thing, It Is
taken with the right band, for If It
Is taken with the left the person re
ceiving It Is said to forgot all about
It very soon or to mislay It. A de
vout Mohammedan will not start on a
journey on Wednesduay. for It Is be
lieved be will never return home safe
ly If he does so. And It Is said that
even a snake never ventures out of
its hole on this day.
A Snake Story.
The family were at dinner when
there came a tap at a door seldom
opened. Wlunlug no attention, it was
repeated and again a third time,
though more softly, and then the door
was swung back and, behold, there
was u snake, knocking at the portals
of hospitality! Down upon its head, In
conformity with the decreo of tradi
tion nnd with Ezra's understanding of
scriptural direction, crunched n Brit
ish boot. It was a mother snake, who,
having bravely overcome her fear of
man, was seeking sustenance, not for
herself perhaps, though she was starv
ing, but more likely for tho llttlo ones
that were found in tho grass by tho
brook. Thus for once, at any rate, did
the craftiness of the devil succumb to
the instinct of motherhood. Georgo
B. M. Harvey In North American Re
view. The "Macaroni."
The "macaroni" were exquisites or
fops who In England and Franco led
the fashions from 1780 to 1785 and
wcro distinguished by an Immense
knot of artificial hair worn on tho top
of their heads. A small cocked hat
which perched ridiculously on their
topknot, satin or brocade coats and
.small clothes fitting tightly to the body
and silk stockings with ribbon garters
composed tho costume of these fash
ionable gentlemen, who Invariably car
ried a long walking tstlek with tassels
'attached and frequently a bouquet tied
to the handle and encouraged a minc
ing and affected gait and manner.
Thero was during tho war for Inde
pendence a body of Maryland soldiers
who on account of their showy uni
forms were called "macaroni."
