Mr. B. F. Blodget, who lives near

the old adage, "Birds of a feather ilock

in the same nest. He is expecting" am
icable relations to continue between
these two fowl until the incubating
process begins, when, as in the past,
the Chinaman must go. Mr. Blodgett
informs us that the pheasant is a very
prolific bird, rearing two and some
times three broods during the breeding
season. After the first brood is hatched
the cock takes charge of them and the
hen continues layiug and bringing
forth another brood.

the word "Refused" written thereon.
But the paper .-still goes to his address
according to good American law, and
not until! an attorney comes arouid to
collect that little debt at the expense
of the dishonest fool docs he discover
