In Western America thoro are two bears that claim tho spoi lsman's al tontlon tho grizzly and tho black. Tho former hunters havo endowed witli many aliases, such as "silver- tip," "brown," "cinnamon," "bald Xaco and 4 Tango" bear. Thoso names do not moan anything, for the. grizzly, llko tho dog, is of many colors. Tlicso two varieties of boars can, among other things, bo distinguished by tho formation of thoir claws. Thoso of tho grizzly aro longor on tho foro than on tho hind foot. Tho claws of tho black bear aro short, and aro of tho sumo length on all four foot. It is difficult to porsuado tho hunters of different sections that tho "silver-tip," "cinna mon," "brown," "buld-faco1 and Tango" bears aro all from tho same ancestry, and that tho samo animal Is called by different names In dlffcrant localities. Hut whilo hunters may vary in inoir nomenclature, tlicy one and all agrco that tho full-grown grizzly U tho gamcst animal in tho world, and tho ono to bo most dreaded Hover do thoso bears stand on thoir hind legs and pursuo tho hunter with torriblo howls and roars, as is tho or thodox wny of describing thoir con flicts with human beings in tho ghastly Htoraturo of tho country. When not lilt in tho brain or splno thoy put thoir head down, and with a swinging gallop rush upon tho huntor. Thoy usually rocolvo thoir death wound without demonstration, sinking down and dying muto. Tho majority ol grizzlies shot by our famous Eastern sportsmen aro thoso that havo II rat boon trapped. Thoy tiro klllod when In this crippled condition, after drag. ging ofton for miles a largo stool trap Willi a Hugo trailing log attached. TTlio grizzly is found west of tho Missouri rlvor, and very rarely, If over, oast of it. Thoy inhabit both tho plains and mountains. A dozen yours ago thoy could bo soon ulmost anywhere in tho mountain ranges, but fdnoo their destruction has boon com passed by baiting and traps thoy havo become shy, and difficult to approach noar enough for a corta'n killing shot. Hoars aro tho most wary animals of all tho big gamo in America. Thoy go singly, and usually soo tho huntor before ho catchos a glimpso of thorn. Thoy then cunningly slip away, and ro difficult to trail. At this tlmo thoy aro fairly abundant m tho mountains of Montana, a suro find being In Cruzy Woraon's Mountain, north of tho Northorn Pacific rallroud. Thoro Is nlso a goodly numbor of boars distrib uted ovor tho mountains of Idaho and Wyoming, somo in Southorn Cali fornia, scattered in tho Siorru Madros and on tho junction waters of tho Santa Maria rlvor In San Luis Obispo County. Thoy aro also numerous iu Ute Rocky mountains and Sierra No vndas. ' Tho black boar litis a far wider rango than tho grizzly, but in tho West It is conllned mostly to tho mountains, and rarely comes out on tho prairie. Jt Is woll distributed, however, and is es pecially abundant In tho timbered country, moving about to whoro tho mast and berries aro most plentiful. JHnolc boars aro very numerous in Northorn Montana. On tho I'aclllo Coast thoy outnumber tho grizzlies, wliero both bjiccIos feed on tho salmon. Tho destruction of tho grizzllos has boon much greater, than that of tho black.

I was In compnny tho other day with my friend, tho professor of chemistry, and, being in a reflective mood, 1 chanced to sny: "Professor, tears aro n curious thing."

I did not pursuo tho conversation. but thought, without snylng so, Unit if tears aro not a curious thing, a pro- lessor 01 chomistrv certainly is. I happened, a fow days after, to re peat tho conversation to our professor of physiology, who, bringing his supor- clllnry muscles into play, said: "Simple as it may appour to Dr. Atom, tho genesis of tears is quito ft complex process, and thoy havo multiple mechanical functions.

At Queen's College, Oxford, tho first dish brought to tho table on Easter day used to bo a red herring tiding away on horseback.

Tho peas ants rise at four o'clock on Easter morning "to seo tho sun dance in honor of tho resurrection." At Twick enhnrn thoro was an ancient custom of dividing two great cakes among tho young people. In 1G45 Parliament, looking upon It as a superstition, or dered tho custom abandoned, and that loaves of bread should bo bought with tho money for tho poor of tho parish Iheso woro thrown from the steeple to bo scrambled for. In somo parts oi England thoro is still tho custom ol eating a gammon of bacon at Easter; this was founded on tho abhorrence our forefathers wished to express to ward tho Jews for their part in the crucifixion. Ono superstition is ex pressed in tho following lines: " On Kaster let your clothes be new, Or eUo bo sure you will It rue." A superstition long practiced on the continent was to abstain from eating flesh on Easter day, in order to escape fever during the year. In Derbyshire is a spring called "Dropping Tor." To this young men and maidens re sort, each with a pound of sugar in 0110 pocket and a cup in tho other. They 1111 the cup with droppings from tho spring, dissolvo tho sugar in it and drink it with anticipated matri monial results. Judging from the quantity of sugar, tho anticipated re sults, if realized, aro suro to bo sweet. A yet stranger custom was onco com mon among all classes in England nnd still prevailed at tho beginning of the present century. "On Easter Mon day," says tho historian, "parties of six or eight women surround such pot-sons of tho opposito sex as they happen to moot, and, with 01 without thoir consent, lift them three times abovo their head-, shouting at each elevation:, 'In representation of our Saviour's resurrection.' Tho mon in similar parties do tho same on Ens tor Tuesday. A custom happily fallen into disuso is that of wives beating thoir husbands on Easter Tuesday, and husbands thoir wives on tho day fol lowing. Such customs, as well as that of young couples rolling down Green wich hill, aro proofs of tho rudo and coarso manners which prevailed in earlier English lifo." Of tho decorations of "paco-e'rn's" It is needless to speak. Every Easter, in tho timo of Louis XV., eggs thus embellished used to bo piled high in pyramids on tho royal table at Ver sailles. Whon tho King had surveyed tho pile of toys ho distributed them among his courtiers. American Agriculturist. THE PICTURE WINDOW. fomenting About tlie.lot Critical Stngo In It Development. Tho search for material ended, tho work of construction may begin. Two aiip'cutc copies of tho cartoon aro first made. Ono operation suffices to accomplish this. Tho eartoon is laid on a largo table, and beneath it nro two sheets of similar paper and two sheets of ordinary black transfer paper ar ranged alternately. Hy passing a small revolving wheel over the out lines of the cartoon, tho t acings aro quickly nnd accurately made. Each space is then numbered corresponding ly on both tracings, and ono of them is cut up to make patterns for tho glass-cutter. An ingenious dissecting instrument is used for this purpose. It consists of a pair of double-edged shears, which, In cutting, removes a strip of paper just tho width of tho load which will separate tho fragments of glass when they aro finally bound together. In this way each pattern is precisely tho sizo required. When the glass is ready to be put together in the window, thoro is vory little coaxing to bo dono to got it into place. Tho picture window has now reached tho most critical stage in its develop ment. I ho paper patterns aro to find suitablo counterparts in glass, and upon tho nicety with which this sub stitution is accomplished depends tho oiled of tho entire work. Nothing is loft undone that will assist tho glass cuttor in forming correct color-judg-monts. Throughout tho ontiro proc ess, and hoto particularly, tho work progresses under precisely those con ditions that aro best calculated to make surprises and incongruities im possible when tho wholo shall bo com pleted. A sheet of plain glass, tho sizo of tho cartoon, is laid ovor tho un directed tracing. Outlines of tho in tended lead bands aro then painted on tho clear glass in black linos of cc rro sponding width. On tho model thus prepared tho papor paitorns aro stuck by moans of a llttlo wax. It is now ready to bo taken to tho figure-room, whoro it is placed directly in front of a largo window, and the ilow work of substituting colored glass for paper begins. Prof. C. II.

It hurt like tho mischief. I have no doubt, but it was only a thumb aftor all, and how the follow was howling about it. Ho was a brave man or he wouldn't have beon whoro ho could havo lost that thumb. Hut you would think it was tho only thumb in tho wholo United States army and Umt no ono olso on tho skirmish lino had beon hit that morning.
