Studying the Huge. Ungainly Binis at
Close Range and Observing Their
Method of Feeding Their Young.
The first time I ever saw a ni-Ule,
trowd of half grown pelicans I thought
nature had surely done her beet to
make something ugly and ridiculous.
It was a warm day. and the birds stood
around with their mouths open, pant
Ing like a lot of dogs after a chase,

In this wide area of low Islands

wanted to study the pelicans at close
range, to adopt some method of hid-
•ng. We took a large wagon umbrella
covered with a piece of green can­
vas, that hung down around the sides.
Thia we planted among the tulea at
the edge of a large colony, and cover­
ed the top well with reeds. The whole
thing soon passed as part of the en­
vironment, while from the inside the
camera man could point his camera
out through a narrow slit tn the can­
vas, take pictures and make observa­
tions at will.
One might wonder how such a huge
billed bird as a pelican could feed a
helpless chick just out of the egg It
was done with apparent ease.
The J

the tront end of the pouch, and the
baby pelican pitched right in and help­

Yield of One Pennsylvania Oak.
The largest oak tree In Huntingtofi
township. Adams county, was cut last
week on the farm of John R. Sadler.
The tree was five feet across the
stump and took the men several hours
to place It prostrate. Eleven hundred
and three large wagon spokes were
taken from the trunk and twelve
cords of wood were cut from the top
and branches —Ph<l-><,Atnh!a Record.

Now, If ever, he thought, the
girl might be ready to listen to reg-

Eunice's womanly pique anil pride,
which might trmpt her to show the
recalcitrant Wilfrid that two could
play the same game, and that she was
not the one to wear the willow for an­
other woman's fiance. Women—and
men likewise—have been known to
marry for spite and repent at leisure.
It was Roger's cue, as usual, to pre­
tend to be wholly Ignorant of the lit­
tle tragedy going on behind the
scenes. Eunice was totally unaware
of the fact that he was In the employ
of her old lover, and she thought she

quite worried about him; he has taken
a heavy cold, and his asthma is al­
ways worse at such times."
"I do not wish to alarm you," said
Hews with a well simulated note of
sympathy in hlB voice; "but I have
noticed that he Is aging rapidly; he
Is not the man he was a year ago.”
"Oh. do you really think that?" ex­
claimed Eunice regretfully, and quick
to take alarm. “He Is perhaps not as
vigorous as he used to be, but I hope
he will be spared to me for many,
many years! He Is my only relative
in the world; If I should lose him"—
and the ready tears came Into her
eyes for the sole parent she had ever
"It Is nothing serious, I guess,” said
Roger with off hand, soothing convic­
tion; "but your father ought to be en­
joying a leisurely old age; at hls time
of life he should not have to work.”
Eunice nodded her head In quick

"That fs a noble object,” said Hews
with real sincerity, "but you have It
in your power to render all that labor
unnecessary, and to make your father
comfortable for the rest of hls life."
"I don’t see—” began Eunice, when,
with a wave of color flooding face and
forehead, she suddenly did see. How
silly and blind to give him such a
good opening, she thought.
Roger Hews was quick to seize hls
chance—In fact, he bad cleverly led

The words were uttered w!»b such
quiet sincerity as to carry to the
wretched man who heard them tlie
conviction that the fortress of her

never be won by him. Roger Hews
realized that he had failed utterly,

The girl winced nt the cruel stab,
at which evidence of the truth of hls
pitiful accusation Hews became even
more frantic. Hls mask of quiet re­
spectability waa ruthlessly cast aside.
“He values you and your love about
as much as one of hls old shoes!" he
sputtered coarsely.
"He threw you

again! He's nothing but a dirty Im­
postor. anyway, and I'll show him up!"
Speech failed him, and he stood be­
fore her panting, choking. Impotent.
Eunice Trevecca moved towards the
door, and from the vantage of Its
opening looked him up and down In
contemptuous scorn.
“I thank you. Mr. Hews," she said
with cutting emphasis; "I have had a
narrow escape, It seems!" and with
these words she left the room.
The preparations for the Stennls-
Passavant wedding went on apace
Thelra was to be only a six weeks' en­
gagement, for Lent had just come In
when the fateful words were spoken
which In a measure set the crown of
success upon the maneuvers of Mis­
tress Clara.
Did she love Wilfrid? In the light
of events it seems extremely doubt­
ful; that she liked and admired him
we have seen; In her eyes marriage
was more a matter of creature com­
fort than of love pure and undeflled—
but little better than a social com­
pact, in fact; so much beauty, so
much refinement, so much good birth
and position In exchange for so many
millions of dollars.
If the possessor of the millions
happened to be a very passable and
presentable sort of a fellow, why, all
the better. In common with nearly
every other woman, Clnra Passavant
shone at her beet during these glamor­
ous weeks, and Wilfrid waa happy—
or told himself that be ought to bo.
