one kept in the Calcutta zoological
gardens, which was butted to death by
a ram. A soldier owned a fighting
ram, which became so troublesome it
had to be sent to the zoo. There it
caused so much annoyance it was de
cided to give it to the great tiger.
The tiger was so ferocious its food

Whether Theodore Roosevelt cap

success will go down as one of the

why he uses newspapers for that pur-

A Wily Mocking Bird.
A naturalist tells of a droll exhibition
of fun evinced by a mocking bird. It
had only recently been captured ana
was placed near another cage in which
were two canaries, both excellent sing
ers. The mocking bird at first seemed
to be struck dumb by his voluble
neighbors; but, as it turned out after
ward, he was only biding his time.
For several days he remained silent,
taking notes, until he bad mastered
their song, when one day, without even
a preliminary rehearsal, be burst out
into a canary song in a loud, ringing
tone that struck his yellow throated
neighbors mute with astonishment.
After this it was a favorite amuseiiievit
of his to drown the voices of the ca
naries with his own loud notes when
ever they attempted to slug. Detroit
While visiting a small manufacturing
town In Germany last summer a New
York woman bought a tortoise shell
hair ornament which was badly injured
through a servant's carelessness. The
saleswoman to whom it was returned
with a request to have it repaired,

sent it back to the hotel with this note:
"The hair comb sending to me is heavy

through wire fastening can be. I
