netting recruits for tho roologlcn'
parks Is not by any menus the easiest
thing In tho world, though the authorl
ties themselves do not bear much ol
tho trouble In this connection. The
work Is mainly dono by travelers and
natives of countries from which the
wild beasts come, from whom tho vnrl
ous zoological societies of tho world
buy, except when the purchases are
made from professional wlldbenst

tigers being killed and the young, left

Perhaps the most dlfllcult of nil wild
animals to capture Is tho giraffe, says
the New York Times. In addition tc
being very rare, giraffes aro exceeding
ly timid and are very swift-footed
There Is no special way to capture a
giraffe, as almost every way has been
tried, and all have been almost equally
unsuccessful. Tho method which lias
occasionally resulted In a capture Is by
using n long cord, at each cud of which
Is a round weight. This cord Is thrown

Once Its Color Iletokened the Hank
tlia Wearer,
"Do you know that tho color of a
muff once betokened the rank of the
wearer?" said a furrier to a I'hllndel
plila Itecord man as he stroked a beau
tiful sealskin muff. "In tho days of
Charles IX. no lady could have worn
this fur, for black was decreed by tho
King to be tho badge of the common
people and tho court followers were
restricted to the colors.
"Muffs have gone through moro
styles than It would seem possible to
Invent for such a simple article of con
venience. It has been long nnd nar
row, like a sheaf, nnd, again, largo
nnd round. At the beginning of Inst
cuitury the test of size wns to try the
muff In a flour barrel. If It went In
without much trouble then flint muff
was too small to be really fashionable.
At the present dny nlmost anything Is
proper, but those enormous cylinders
would certainly draw much attention.
One of the most curious styles was
that of Louis XIV., called tho Yhleus
mauchons,' becauso they were made to
convey little dogs In.
The muff when first Introduced was
the cxcluslvo property of the nobility
and originated In Venice. These muffs
wero very small and consisted of a
single plcco of velvet, brocade or silk,
lined with fur nnd the openings fas
tened with rich Jewels. Kuch arrange
ments came In during tho early part
of the seventeenth century, but In the
previous century the ladles frequently
carried a piece of rich fur, which they
used either ns a muff or a neck piece.
The muff reached Its highest point
In the reign of I.ouls XV., when the
productions wero exquisite. Then
fashion declared for a cloth muff In
stead of fur, and the furriers made a
great uproar. They petitioned the Tope
to excommunicate the wearer or a
cloth muff, but to no purpose. Finally
some Ingenious merchant bribed the
headsman to carry a cloth muff on
execution day. The women shrank
from such association and the fur won
the day. We now associate the muff
only with cold weather, but In the old
days It was a regular part of womnn'a
dress and was carried In all weather.
As late as 1830 a muff and a straw
bonnet were not deemed Incongruous."
Savage Athletes.
In this ago of athletics one might
think that no people ever showed so
much Interest In feats of muscular
might and skill as those who have per
fected football; but modern games, and
even the games of tho Greeks at Olym
pla, may bare been more than match
ed by the sports of peoples who are
now held In llttlo esteem. A writer
on the Canary Islands gives an account
of their athletic training which makes
oven the college giants of to-day seem
weak and effeminate.
Tho Canary Islands were subjected
by Spain about the time Columbus dis
covered America. The conquest was
due solely to the superiority ot Euro
pean weapons, and not to better skill
and prowess. The native soldiers were
trained athletes, developed under a
system which held athletic sports an
Important business, like military drill.
Spanish chronicles hare left us ac
counts ot the sports of the islanders.
From babyhood they were trained to
bo brisk in self-defense. As soon as
they could toddle the children were
pelted with mud balls, that tbey might
learn how to protect themselves. When
they were boys stones and wooden
darts were substituted for the bits of
In this rough school they acquired
the rudiments of warfare which en
abled 'them, during their wars with
the Spaniards, to catch In their bands
the arrows shot from their enemies'
After the conquest of the Canaries
a native of the Islands was Been at
Seville who, for a shilling, let a man
throw at him ns many stones as ho
pleased from a distance of eight paces.
Without moving his left foot he avoid
ed every stone.
Another nativo used to defy any one
to hurl an orange at him with so great
rapidity that bo could not catch it
Three men tried this, each with a
dozen oranges, and the Islander caught
every orange. As a further test, he
hit bis antagonists with each of tho
Fishhook Cactus.

tbo water or fishhook cactus, says the
New York Commercial. During the
moist season it stores up a large quan
tlty of water for the subsequent dry
one, when all tho ground Is parched
with beat and only chaunels filled with
stones mark the course of former rivu
