When the chicks are hatched out they

young pheasdnts both la si.o nud in

laughed at the curious etiquette notice

their queen. But the peafowl etiquette
in Introducing young chicks to their
owner Is at least as curious. As soon
as the chicks are able to walk the
mother marshals them in a procession,
and, leading herself, she stalks to the
place where she and the others are
generally fed. Having formally Intro
duced her brood, she takes them back
to the nest, and they are not seen any
more for some weeks. The hen will
come and be fed, but the chicks are

A Friendly Penguin.
I outbid a friend for a penguin,
which became an interesting pet. The
friend wanted the bird for Its skin.
On board ship the bird soon got accus
tomed to its surroundings and found
that the cook was one to keep on
good terms with, and it haunted the
galley, getting many tidbits. It was al
ways In attendance when the market
boat came alongside in the morning
and followed the steward as he car
ried the day's provisions aft. Strange'
to say. it developed a great liking for
lettuce, although its natural food is
fish, and another curious trait was that
it would never pick up food from the
deck or cut of water, but would al
ways take it ravenously from the
hnn.l. It behaved like a child and
would make a whining sound as if
begging to be lifted up and would cud
die dowu and appear to be quite hap

that it began among some oriental peo

the many preserved specimens today

,WASP WAIST CONTESTS.
Curious Course of T'aining In Old
Time Girls' Schools.
A letter recently unearthed from a
trunk shows that In the sixties of the
lust centurv nrincltials of uirls' schools
thought they wore fitting the girls for
society by urging them to retain small
waists. Accordingly they offered
prizes to the girls having the smallest
waists. The clrls were put through a
course of training for reducing their
waist measure. The conditions of the
contest were that the corset should
not be removed on retiring at night
and that each pupil must be inspected
every morning to make sure she had
not loosened her corset. One of the
persons who engaged In the contest
afterward wrote of it: .
"Some of us tried hard to be per
mitted to retire from the contest, but
we were rebuked for stultifying our
selves and accused of milking fools of
our principals. On the following
morning the undoi-governess, with her
maid, came as usual to superintend
the toilets, and after satisfying her
self that each lace was drawn in to
the utmost she fastened it in a knot
at the top nnd, passing the ends
through a piece of card, placed hei
own seal on them, so that any attempt
to loosen the corset during the night
might be infallibly detected iu the
morning." Detroit Free Press.
WHITE DEER SKINS.
They Passed About as Banknotes at
One Timo In China.
In China, the first country in the
world credited with using banknotes,
certain skins were so valuable that
they were accepted as cash and passed
from hand to hand in the same way
as banknotes are at the present day.
The negotiability of these skins arose
The Enmeror Ou Ti. being in want
of money, gave his treasurer to under
stand that such a state of affairs
must not continue. At that time it
was customary for princes ami court
iers on entering the royal presence to
cover their faces with a piece of skin.
Taking advantage of this custom, the
treasurer ordered a decree to be issued
forbidding the use of any other skins
for this purpose except those of a cer
tain white deer in the royal parks.
Immediately there was a demand for
nieces of these skins, which, being a
monopoly, were sold at a high price
and the royal coffers refilled. I he
sfpodv vnlufi of the skins thus secured
made thein readily pass and acceptable
as an equivalent of coin of the realm.

A Stenographer's Stumble. ;
A judge in one of our middle west
states advertised for a stenographer
with experience in legal work. A num
ber of applicants called at his ollice
for the purpose of making application
for t lie position. Each applicant was
given a trial to test her speed, accu
racy, etc. Among the applicants was
a young lady whose anxiety to make
a good showing evidently unnerved
her. The judge dictated to her a few
sentences in legal language, one of
which was. "That would give him
time to complete the devastation of the
assets." The sentence as transcribed
by the young lady on the typewriter
read as follows: "That would give him
time to complete the devil's station
with a hatchet." Although much
amused at her ludicrous blunder, the
judge permitted her to go away with
out telling her of her mistake. Case
Madrid's Fearful Climate.
Madrid is afflicted with the most
changeable climate of tiny European
capital. The temperature varies from
as much as 107 degrees in t lie summer
to as little as 10 degrees in the win
ter, and at all seasons of the year It
indulges in violent fluctuations. It Is
by no means uncommon in December
to wake up with the thermometer reg
istering about 20 degrees and to find
it mount to more than 00 degrees by
the afternoon. Some years ago an
oscillation of 37 degrees was registered
in one day. No wonder, therefore,
that lung troubles are far more preva
lent in Madrid than in St. Petersburg.
How Music Affected Doswell.

Johnson th'it music "affected him" to

most painfully, producing alternative
sensations of pathetic dejection, so
that ho was ready to shed tears, nud

One species of Japanese mouse may

AN UNFOUGHT DUEL.
The Way the Father of His Country
Avenged a Blow.
It is narrated that ou one occasion
In his early manhood Washington
came verv near the settlement of a
dispute, so common in those days, by
fighting a dnel. But as he was the
one who should have issued the chal
lenge he bad the still greater courage
to apologize and admit that he was in
It was in the town of Alexandria,
where the young Virginia colonel was
quartered with his troops, that an elec
tion dispute occurred, and in the heat
of the party excitement Washington
told a Mr. Payne that he lied. That
gentleman at once replied with a blow
that knocked the young colonel down.
Word having reached the barracks
that their beloved commander had
been killed, his soldiers rushed to the
city to avenge him. He met them,
however, quieted them, and they re
turned to their quarters.
Mr. Payne, ou receiving a note from
Washington the next morning asking
him to call nt his lodgings, supposed it
was. of course, to give the colonel
opportunity to demand "satisfaction"
for the blow he had received the day
before. Imagine his surprise when,
instead of finding pistols or swords
ready for a duel. Washington greeted
him with outstretched hand, saying:
"1 believe 1 was wrong yesterday. You
have already had some satisfaction,
nnd if you deem that sufficient here
Is my hand. Let us be frieuds." II.

Catching the Speaker's Eye.
The practice of "catching the speak
er's eye" dates back to the session of
lfijo, when a heated dispute arose be
tween members of the house, several
of whom claimed precedence of speech.
It was then decided that whoever first
caught the speaker's eye should have
the right to address the house. This
rule worked smoothly until 1085. when
Sir John Trevor was elected to the
chair. The new speaker was aClicted
with an abominable squint; consequent
ly two members would often catch his
eye simultaneously and decline to give
way to one another. To obviate this a
further rule was framed to the effect
that the speaker should call by name
upon the member privileged to address
the house. So every holder of the of
fice has to possess a good memory for
names as well as keen eyesight. Lon
The Cruel Wolf Spider.
One of the most unnatural things in
nature, if the expression is allowable.
Is the manner in which the young of
the common wolf spider treat their
mother. After the little creature has
laid her eggs she envelops them in a
silken covering, so as to make a ball
about the size of a pea. and this she
carries about with her wherever she
goes and will defend It with her life.
When the young are hatched they
climb on her back, giving her a mon
strous appearance, nnd ride about un
til nearly half grown, and as soon as
they discover their strength they fall
to and devour their mother.
