In studying zoological distribution

man has been bo long engnged in scat
tering tlicm over tho world that it is
now impossible to trace their originn
nomcs. jnuceu, any attempt to as
sign thcin to wild progenitors must to
n large extent bo simply guesswork.
The tnmecattlo of our farm-yards and
iiolds may perhaps bo sprung from tho
urns and other wild oxen which at ono
timo roamed through tho vast forests
of Kuropc; and tho sty-living pig from
fiorco wilds which still hold their ow n
in many parts of tho Continent nnd in
tho thickets of Northern Africa. In
like manner tho cat is supposed to be
descended from n I'crsinn ancestor; nnd

Cross In tho search after tho progeni

No doubt, a so-called wild horso has
tocon found in Contral Asia, and wild
camels arc not nnfrcquonl in tho samo
rogion. Hut whether theso animals aro
not tamo species which havo escaped
from domestication long years ago and
ro-cstablished thoir freedom, is a qucs
tion to which a favorable answer might
quite as readily bo given as to tho con
trary thesis. Tho turkoy, it is certain,
enmo from Amorica; tho peacock is an
Indian bird; nnd tho guinea-fowl was
originally from Africa. Tho domestic
goofco Is regarded as descended from
tho greylag, or common wild goose,
though all tho species aro capable of
domestication; whilo tho duck in our
ponds Is in its wild state known as tho
mallard. Hut tho domestic fowl hns
been so long a sorvnnt of man that It is

AN ENGLISH RASCAL.
Acting ni n ltoiillucn Hit Miiiingr to
Ills (lutoti of S7.COO.
Tho clovornoss of an English rascal
hius excited tho envy of all tho rascals
in Purls, who, with typical Paris ego
tism, havo long claimed to bo tho
cleverest rascals in tho world. Tho
English rascal in quostion was n pro
fessional London plekpookot. Shortly
boforo tho French exposition opened ho
toughta small hotel in Paris on tho in-
ftullmeiit plan. Tho purchaso pricoof
tho hotel was (iO.OOO francs, nnd tho
first and only installment which tho
English man paid was 2,000 francs.
The Englishman bought n few p locos
of cheap English furnltuio for Ills now
house, equipped an English bar and
then ndvortlsod far and wldo for English
board ors during tho exposition. Ills
prices wero so ow that ho soon filled
his house. Every ono of his lodgers
was warned by u playcnrd over hla bed
that tho landlord would not bo to-
iponslblo for tho loss of any valuables
which had not boon deposited In tho
hotel safe. Of course tho biifo deposits
Increased with tho popularity of tho
hotel, nnd both reached high-water
murk two days before the bucond in
tullniont of 2,000 francs on the pur
chased pricu of tho hotel foil duo.
Thero was then iKi.OOO francs' worth of
Wrltihh jowelery and bank notos In tho
tafo. Tho pickpocket landlord stole
every sou of it Ho concealed his
fdundor in uiiothor part of Park, dyod
lis hair, shuvod his board, put on a
French suit of clothes, and began pick
ing pockets at tho exposition. Ho was
cauglit by tho polico with his hand in
Iho pocket of an English member of
parliament and was locked up. A polico
investigation led ton revolution of his
history nnd tho recovery of tho jewelry

How to Trap Hawks According to
New England authority the lest way to
trap hawks that he ever heard of is to
set up a post ten feet high near the
iKHiltrv yard with a perch on it. On this
perch set a common steel trap baited
with a chicken's head or a dead chicken.
The hawks like to perch on some such
point of observation before taking their
final 6woop down among the chicks, nnd
are very apt to get caught in such an ar
Clover can be sown in the fall. The
seed is put in about tho middle of Ang
us or September. To prepare the land
plow it now and let the seeds of weeds
sprout. Just before seeding plow the
land again, nnd dress it with a mixture
of thirty bushels of lime and wood ashes
harrow'well, sow tho seed and brush the
land over, so as to lightly cover tho seed.
It will make a better "catch" than when
clovei is seeded on grain in the spring.
Fruit Dangors and Remedies. An
excessive amount of fruit, or, if eaten
either in tho unripe or over-ripe state.
produces various disturbances in the
system, chiefly so because of its tendency
to ferment and decomjose within the
digestive tact, and to produce stomach
and lowel disorders. If these distuhan-
ces aro not too great, or too prolonged,
thoy need occasion no special anxietv.
A doso of castor oil, to which a few drops
of laudanum havo boon added is usually
sufficient to clean out the irritating "de
bris," and in a day or two tho natural
equlibrium is restored. If there is much
griping and pain witli the movements,
