Interesting Information Given by
Writer Oysters and Their Enemies
Limpet's Homing Instinct.
In "Animals of the Sen," F. Martin
Duncan, P. Z. S., tells the reader that
young oysters enjoy hut 48 hours' free
dom as moving creatures; then they
settle down for life. Among the oys
ter's enemies Is the starfish. An In
vasion of "five-fingers" will sometimes
destroy a whole bed of oysters In a
single night Some most Interesting
points gleaned from this hook Include:
The female lobster has been known
to produce 100,000 eggs at a time.
Limpets go on traveling expeditions at
night, but by a wonderful homing In
stinct, return to exactly the same spot
on their "home" rock. Whelks have
from 220 to 250 teeth each, the winkle
possesses a set of 3,"00, but the dental
outfit of the "Umbrella Shell" Is 750,
000 teeth. The sea urchin has four
different kinds of spines, each with a
specialized function: weapons, poison
bearers, "chewers" and cleaners. A
giant clam will weigh 550 pounds. A
54-pound ling was found to possess 28,
361,000 eggs.
Regrettable Blunder.
A strange experience ami rather an
unpleasant one happened 'vlille riding
with a friend Just outside of Philadel
phia. We were passing through n tun
nel and Just when it was darkest my
friend made a smacking noise with his
lips as though kissing someone. Great
ly shocked I cried out, "Oh, Roy, yon
mustn't do that I" Of course, every
body thought he had kissed me and I,
realizing what a blunder I had made
by crying out, was blushing furiously
when we emerged from the tunnel. If
only I had kept still how much better
off I would have been. The rest of the)
Journey, lasting about one hour, was
most uncomfortable for me. Exchange,

Twenty-Fifth of December Be
longed to Her.
The oldest English name for Christ
mas is Moddra Nlht. or Mothers'
Night. In the early days, when Saxon
forefathers had Just settled down in
the country that was to be England,
tte day of December 25, was given
tip to gnmes and feasting, but the night
was dedicated to the speclal honor of
They occupied tha seats of honor,
end everyone brought them gifts.
Boas and daughters who had gone
oot Into the world strove to be at
home on that one night In the year.
A little later the name Yule was
given to Christmas, and the rejoic
ings of the day were prolonged Into
the night, when men sang and told
stories sitting aronnd the cheerful
blare of the Yule log.
The old customs of Mothers' Night
gradually died out, though they still
arrive In a few remote parts of the
country. Its place has been tnken
to gome extent by Mothering Sun
day tn the north of England. On
that day everyone who can do so
still makes a pilgrimage homeward
and the mother receives the homage
of her family.
Jackson's "Kitchen Cabinet."
"Kitchen cabinet" was a name spor
tively given to Francis V. Blair, Amos
Kendall and others, by the opponents
of President Jackson's administration.
Blair was the editor of the Globe, the
organ of the president, and Kendall
was one of the principal contributors
to the paper. As it was necessary for
Jackson to consult frequently with the
i-wo. In order to avoid observation they
were accustomed, when they called
upon him, to go In by a back door.
The Whig party styled them In dert-
slon the "kitchen cabinet," alleging
I It was upon their recommendations
i that the President removed so many
I Whigs from office and put Democrats
in their place.

"Wonder what's up now? Something
devilish, I bet four-penee-ha' -penny,"
Elizabeth muttered, shaking her list
after the car whirling past at top
speed. The pair on the front seat were
singing loudly a soug unlit for decent
hearing. Essex Toby and Buel Crane,
the singers, had a natural atlinity for
filth. Therefore, Elizabeth hated them
soundly. She had perforce to see and
hear them daily unless she chose to
face starvation. Jobs were never plen
tiful in Underbill and this special
winter, with all manner of work at
6lack tide, there was not one to be
She had no resources of money or
vital force. There was still ten dol
lars to pay upon her mother's funeral
expenses. Once free of debt she did
not let herself think further, but strode
determinedly toward the tiny cottage,
the only shelter she remembered.
Her mother, silent and dour, had yet
worn the look of being crushed. She
hud almost never told her daughter
anything of the past. One Sunday
when they had walked a far way and
sat down amid grassy fields she had
said reflectively, "I hate grass It took
my husband from me. lie was mad
about it so mad lie went away and
never came back."
"Didn't he tell you why?" Elizabeth
had asked breathlessly.
Her mother had laughed, a hard
laugh, saying through shut teeth : "To
make a lady of you. He left me the
job of seeing you didn't starve. Don't
thank me for doing it. Better, a lot
better, for both of us if I had gone
under the third time when I tried the
There had been nothing else. Only
Elizabetli had found a faded envelope,
bearing a law firm's stamp and ad
dressed boldly, "Phillip Surtees, Esq."
It had lain Hat at the very bottom of
her mother's battered trunk, which
had yielded no other clew to what lay
She had called herself Mowry at the
big steel mills, where she was among
the obscurest and lowest paid of
typists. She had worked well, but list
lessly, as though aiming only to get
through the day.
When Elizabeth at twelve had taken
her place through a brief illness she
had begun to climb the ladder of mo
notonous toil. She had climbed surely
at eighteen, when her mother had
died suddenly, she had made her place
secure, earning twice what the elder
woman had ever done.
But there had been rent to pay,
trifling to be sure. Her mother had
lived rent free, because, the daughter
was given to understand, she had been
specially commended to Mr. Toby's
kindness by a charitable friend.
Elizabeth was not even handsome,
yet had somehow a look of race that
marked her worthy of young Toby's
consideration. Grandson and heir ulti
mate, he of course bulked big in all
mill concerns, double as much as his
chum, who represented the Crane in
terests in the firm.
Both had tried out Elizabeth after
the manner of such gilded youth and
been met with uncomprehension so
blank it had baffled and angered them.
It was late April still a glimmer of
daylight sluawed when she opened her
door and stooped to lift a letter from
the floor It had been thrust in since
she left that morning.
As she stood turning It In her hand
a horn honked shrilly; there was the
grinding sound of brakes, a babble of
high-pitched voices then three young
fellows came upon her in a rush,
crying shrilly: "Caught you at last!
Come on now be a good fellow for
once ! The lot or us are going down
the river to the dandiest roadhouse
with. a floor like glass and oh, the
dandiest things to eat. We want you,
anyway but fact Is we're a girl
shy one went back on the other fel
lows and they haven't our nerve so
didn't try kidnaping."
"Think you can put It over?" Eliza
beth asked coolly, though In deed she
was cold with fear.
All three had been drinking even
without it they were reckless enough
for anything. They caught her arms,
her bunds she was half dragged, half
lifted into the car, which set off at
once so madly It rocked from side to
side of a smooth asphalt road.
Toby was at the wheel with a fourth
man beside him. Elizabeth sat be
tween Crane and the unknown third.
She did not struggle, did not speak
her shrinking from contact with
them sufficiently spoke her loathing.
Except fon the shrinking, she was
barely conscious of them.
Her mind, her soul, revolved about
the letter clutched so tight It was
crushed out of sight. Somehow she
sensed It meant salvation for her, else,
everlasting damnation. She knew what
bad brought It her own letter to the
law firm, asking Information aa to

back, this tardy reply seemed to prom
ise something what she could not
As the car halted in the roadhouse
lights she turned upon Kuel Crane,
saying clearly: "I put you on honor,
supposing vou have such a thing to
see that I am taken home, unharmed."
"We're open to bribery. What's of
fered?" Crane flung at her. She
looked at him level-eyed, answering:
"The pleasure of my company

tion. You smile? Think I don't know-
It? Let me show you. Also on my
word of honor, 1 will not try to escape

"Hurrah! Good spurt, Elizabeth 1
Knew you just needed a bit of waking
up to be a bit of all right," Kuel cried,
his voice cracking in his excitement
"I am going to the dressing room to
prettify," she said. "All who like
stand guard outside I shan't vanish,
whatever else I may do."
She stood in a locked bathroom,
reading the letter it bewildered her
beyond conscious planning. Phillip
Surtees, by his attorneys, was telling
her that he would go anywhere, do
anything to find Elizabeth Mowry, for
whom lie had been hopelessly search
ing years and years. She glanced at
the letterhead a phone number was
Cautiously she crept to the Instru
ment, shut the door of its cell behind
her and said guardedly but clearly to
the person answering: "Tell Phillip
Surtees and Attorney Norn to come
with all speed to the Green Hedge, a
roadhouse outside Milltown. Eliza
beth Mowry is there, prisoner, and in
danger of worse than death."
"Xorn speaking, we'll be there,"
came back. She stood trembling so
violently the receiver fell from her
hand. But after a bit she took hold
on herself and went calmly to meet
her captors. She knew she was safe
until after midnight; Whatever danger
loomed was most Imminent upon the
homeward way.
She had not faith in any of the
young roughs; to revenge themselves
for fancied slights they would stop at
nothing. Yet she danced with them
each In turn, laughed at their drunken
witticisms, ate heartily of some few
things, but drank nothing, not even
water. Her head must be clear for
what lay ahead.
The place was crowded and riotous
beyond words before the cloc k struck
twelve. A big, booming clock, its
chimes like- n requiem. Elizabeth
shheied at the sound ot them. Would
help come too late?
The revel gave no sign of slacking,
but Toby and Crane began to be
glassy eyed and yawning. She danced
deliriously with any partner that of
fered. Anything to gain another inch
of time. Then came a peculiar sing
ing whirr the shout of greeting was
In the confusion Elizabeth managed
to slip away, but not too far to see a
tall, wasted man, with a bright-faced
younger one at his elbow, burst through
the rowdy throng, with a file of police
at their heels.
Then she fainted small blame to
her. The tall man cried aloud : "I
want Elizabeth Mowry, my daughter
If harm has come to her all you
who brought her here shall swing for
It !" Then Attorney Norn spied her
prone half way up the stair; he lifted
her tenderly and said to the infuriate
father: "Come away, sir. She has
only fainted. We must get her away
without scandal."
"What's that to you, you plnwhopl?"
Essex Toby blustered. Norn gave him
a look and said over his shoulder:
"Only this she is going to be my

Expedition of the National Geographic
Society May Solve Problems That
Have Puzzled Scientists.
An expedition of the National Geo

The clue which the National Geo

upon Is the waxy endosperm. The tis

starch, that of sweet corn, sugar. In
a few places of China, Western Yun

to be waxy. By noting the localities
where It appears the investigators may
be able to tell how It entered China.
The corn quest Is but one of the
