According to the testimony of our

genus of "flying serpent" now known
to inhabit tho earth is a family of
reptiles which make their homos in
the great forests or uornoo, men
tioned by Meek, Williams, Kinne and
others as tho "flying lizard of tho
South seas." The best known species
of this flying saurian is Draco vplens
loekii, a striped, snakeliko, lizard
about 14 or 16 inches in length when
full grown. The primary colors of
Draco are red and yellow, in bands,
dots, crescents and stripes, the red
predominating to such an extent
that the creatures appear ns a car

the air. Some have declared that
his wings are "sails" like those of

hoped tho subject will be In order by

appeared to Indicate a leaning toward

that a voto be taken upon that measure

cau turn everything to good use here.
I went in a grocery storo to, uuy a doos

said "It wasn't tho dust, If was because
I was so far from them." That made
