The BediKa Grossbesk.
The Bengal grosbeak. builds a nest
shaped like a bottle and always selects
for its support a long, lithe limb over-
hanging a stream of water. The en-
trance is benenth. and, from the situa-
tion and becullar shape, It is absolute-
ly impossible for a snake to g In ad-
mission to the nest. One naturalist
records seeing fourteen attempts on' the
part of serpents to get at the nest, but
the hungry snakes always fell off into
the water.

With this issue, the Buoy greets

its patrons with No. 1, of Volume 16'
For thepast fiteen years the publisher,
practically alone and with very little
assistance in any department, has
studied to give his patrons a clean
publication-one that would be a
welcome guest in any family circle.
Under the most discouraging condi-
tions, it has never failed to make its
appearance regularly evwry Wednes-
day afternoon. To say that it hass
always been up to the standard of
what he had wished, would be claim-
ing too much, but he has done the
best he could under existing condi-
tions and the patrons are to be the
judgi as to whether bis efforts in
their behalf have been appreciated by
Very few who have never tried it
can realize what it is in these days
of rapid communication, to publish a
paper in a small town, like St. An-
drew, fifty miles from any railroad,
or telegraph corumunication, and es-
pecially as to freights, which are oft-
en delayed for weeks and sometimes
Jor months, and there is reason to
consider it a streak'of good fortune it
they ate not lost altogether.
But there is reason to hope that
with the completion of a railroad to
the bay, which now seems assured,
many of these disadvantages will dis-
appear, and with its enlarged home,
now well under way of construction,
the Buoy hopes to give its patrons a
publication of which neither he nor
they may have reason to feel ashamed.

A Soft Anmwer.
Here is a story about Sir Patrick
Talbot, sergeant at arms In the house
of lords. He had been private secre
tary to the great Lord Derby when
prime minister and afterward married
one of his daughters. One day when
a large party was present at Knowl
sey Lord Derby burst out at table with
the remark, "It's a curious thing one
never knows what a lot of fools there
are in England until one becomes
prime minister." Thereupon Talbot. at
the other end of the table, said, "Yes,
and one never knows what a fool a
prime minister may be -until one be-
comes his, private secretary." Lord
Derby's reply was, "Thank you, Pat."-
Dundee Advertiser.
The Heartiest Meal.
Let your heartiest meal be at night
or whenever your work for the day is
over. Fruits, toasts, soft boiled eggs
and oatmeal make a good breakfast.
When the Intermission between hours
of labor is short no heavy food should
be taken into the stomach. Hundreds
of people who eat heartily and return
to work immediately afterward have
Jere Black on Thad Steveas.
It is related that Judge Jere Black
pnce said of Thad Stevens that "he was
ene of the brightest men ever born
and could say the smartest things, but
that, so far as being under any sense
of obligation to his Creator for supe-
rior mental endowments, his mind was
a howling wilderness."
Humanity and immortality consist
neither in reason nor in love not In the
body nor in the animation of the heart
Sof it nor in the thoughts and stirring
of the brain of It, but In the dedication
of them all to him who will raise them
up at the last day.-John Ruskin.
How He Came by Them.
She-Have you never tried to make
friends? He-Oh, yes. That is the rea-
son I have s0 inany enemtes.-Smart

To be thrown upon one's own re-
sources Is to be cast into the very lap
of fortune.- Franklin.

One of the habitues of Bkinner's gro-
very, at the village of Skinnersvllle,
was t Langford. He became a "sit-
ter" witen he was twenty years old,

and for twelve years hp never missed
out oue night. T1at was rthe ntg-it of
his marriage to the Widow Durham.
She was his senior by ten years, and
she married him mostly that he might
have a mother. Ever night, rain or

During the firt year the old veterans
crowded him around somewhat, but
after that one of the cracker barrels
was marked with his Initials and duly
recognized as his throne.
As for occupation, Abe was most
anything. He did a day's work here
and there, but the wife mainly support-
ed the two of them by sewing for the
neighbors. Abe was mild mannered
and easy going, and he was not much
of a talker.
But Abe Langford's wife knew him
better than his fellow sitters. They
had often remarked among themselves
that he had no ambition. She knew
better. Under that quiet and humble
demeanor was hidden away an ambi-
tion that longed to soar and Impa-
tiently waited its opportunity. Almost
every night when Abe reached home he

A foreign medical journal has been
publi-hring facts about the dissemiiia-

public libi'.rice. It is, of course, impos-
si).le for lihir.ir'i,', to ascertain where
books ].:lre ii..'ai o to know the condi-
tions of !iiiil;,4 into which they go. A
large ]:unl.-er of books were examined
and weri4 found to contain the bacilli
of pumrntc-nim, diphtheria and many
other sorts, some of which were harm-
less. Evin new books fresh from the
publishetfs hands were found to con-
tain g['rus. There are very many per-
sons whb# practice wetting the fingers
with tho"lips- or-tongue when turning
the page*,of books. This is an exceed-

who happened to be dining with hiin

dreaded disease that science has boen
able to cure in all its stages, and that iS

positive cure known to the medical fra-

and mucoup surfaces of the system, there-
by destnrving the foundation of the dis-

DevoTm'ir'e is known to the world
for t3 super.t. ins usages, which defy
:11 efforts to uproot them. To name
ouly one example, when a person dies
all the relatives must touch the body
or they will be haunted by the ghost
of the dead forever after. A supersti-
t'on not so local in its observance is
that of heginnin no task 6o a Friday.
The writer receatiy encountered a g'rl
who, 'reeiving notice to change from
one room to) another on Friday, insisted
upon doing it on Thursday instead.
But the most curious instance of super-
stition-and this, too, is met with much
nearer home than DI)evon-is surely that
which prescribes that when; say; do'- ,
minestic servant has broken a piece of
crockery she is bound by fate to break
two other pieces. So far is this idea
carried that the writer knows a cnse

The Greek conception of the evil one,
whom they call Yama, makes that per-
sonage one of the most satanic of the
whole evil tribe. According to their
ideas of him, he is 240 miles high and
the hairs on his body stand out like
palm trees on a mountain side. He
punishes the doomed being submitted
to his charge by putting them in beds
of boiling oil, sawing their bodies in
two, pouring molten lead in their ears
and such other little pranks as pulling
out their tongues, toe, and finger nails
and gouging out their eyes. He is a
heartless 61d fiend of the most fiendish
kind and has many other exquisite lit-
tle tortures laid up -for the helpless
wretch consigned to his "chamber of

The Cent Irs Ioi Small.
With the exception of the l]:gli.h
penny, the cent is the largest minimum
unit of money in the, civiliz~td world.
Roughly speaking. our cent Is worth 2
kopebks, 2 cents Mexican, Chinese and
East Indian, 2 atts or mUliemnes. It is
two and a half times larger thbai thd
cent of the Netherlands or the kreutzer.
There are 4 pies, ore, or pfennige to the
cent or 5 bani, centeslifii. lfpfi, heller,
po iia, centimes or stotinkl. A cent
Is worth 10 paras Turkish or 10 Japa-
nese rin. 11 cash Chinese or 50 paras

('uctors of Servia say when tendered a
five c"-:t fare in paras would probably
not be fit to print.

Telegraph Operators' Signs.
Telegraph operators always have per-
sonal signs which they place on all mes-
sages they send *r receive. Usually
they use two of their Initials or take
two letters from their names. For in-
stance, James Black will probably use
"JB" as his sign. In many cases, how-
ever, they choose their signs in peculiar
"We once had a man working here
who signed 'KE' because he had taken
the Keeley cure," said a Kanlsas City
chief operator. "He afterward went
back to drinking and then used 'BZ,'
deriving it from 'booze.' Another fel-
low signed 'PS' because he used to say
he received a poor salary. A woman
operator we had here used to sign
'HK,' her Initials, until one day her
JIeau jilted her and married another
girl. After that she signed 'BII,' which,
we understood, meant 'broken heart.'
In an eastern office where I once work-
ed there was a hoodoo sign. It was
'KQ.' The first man who used it tlw're
was killed by a train, the next one
went crazy and the third died of ty-
phoid fever. After that nobody in the
office dared use the hoodoo sign. The
stoly about its being a Jonah traveled
over' the country, and today you'll find
very few operators signing 'KQ.'"

Su5uasti-ve Sermon.
The Rev. Dr. -Howard, chaplain to
Princess Augusta, was so fond of good
living that he ran into debt with many
of the tradesmen in his parish. It was
in their special interests that he one
day.preached from the text, "Have pa-
tience, and I will pay you all." He
spoke at great length on the virtues of.
patience and then proceeded, "I now
come to the second part of my dis-
course, which is, 'and I will pay you
all,' but that I shall defer to a future
occasion."--London Standard.

The Alexandrite.
Don't think that your knowledge of
wonder gems is complete till you have
seen an alexandritee," green by day
and red by night. And such a green-
olive -bronze, with a potent suggestion
that red is there. Green when held in
the sunlight. In a darkened room with
artificial light a ruby where the emer-
ald .was a moment before-a tawny
wine red of exquisite tone.

American Exuberance.
A prominent English statesman who
visited this country a few years ago
was talking with friends about the na-
tional characteristics of Americans and
gave it as his opinion that the western-
er is the most truly humorous of the
citizens of the United States.
"Why," said the Briton in explana-
tion, "a relative of mine who frequent-
ly visits the States for purposes of
sport tells me that he was entranced
by the reply made to him by the pro-
prietor of a hotel in Nebraska when he
asked if there were any quail iu the
'Quail!' exclaimed the proprietor.
q should say so! Why, they've got to
be a regular nuisance round here. My
cook complains that she can't throw a
piece of toast out of the window with-
out four or five fat quail fighting to see
which shall get on it!' "- Woman's
Home Companion.
Visitor (to convict)-I suppose you
find your life here very tiresome, my
friend, do -you not? Convict-Oh, no,
sir. I have been a burglar for a good
many years and have worked hard and
conscientiously at the' business, and as
I'm only In for three years i foel that
the rest le doing me good.

Lawyer-The cross examination did
not seem to worry you a little bit.

The liht of Way.
In the early days of western railway
building, days hdt so long gone by as
to be out of memory, there wei'e many
exciting races between rival roads for
the posseeslon of important mountain
passes. Such a race, says the World's
Work, was that between the Santa Fe
and the Rio Grande roads for the right
of way through Raton pass to New
Mexico and the southwest.
Engineers and construction gangs
worked in mad haste to get to It ahead
of their rivals. The victory fell to the
chief of the Santa Fe. When the Rio
Grande cohorts arrived they found him
alone itfl th of the big gorges, shovel in
hand, sllefi 4 Carth from an 8,000 foot
fat te you doing here?" they
"Constructing a railroad," be replied.
He turned another shovelful of dirt,
dropped the tool and hitched up his
heavy Cartridge belt.
"Any one who interferes with the
Santa k'e does it at his own risk," he
said quietly.
First the Ri(o grande men laughed,
and then they raged, and then they
turned and went away. Their road
was cut off from the south forever.

A B116A In Bubbles.
'"Tt take a bath at Titfli, iid Eussiahi
Caucasia, is to court d never to be for-
gotten experience," says one who
knows. "The masseur who presides
over the toilet of his patrons is a weird
looking figure. His head is shaved, a
rag Is twisted aroutid his waist, and
his feet are dyed a beautiful red. You
are seated by -this individual, rubbed,
pushed face downward on a marble
slab. ftlt his feet Ini your spine and
his bands upon your shoulders. Then
he grinds his feet tip and down your
back. They are round your neck, on

vaults lightly off, and In a moment,

Wonders of the Eye.
Viewed as afi optical instrument, the
human eye may well be called perfect,
for it Is an apparatus contained in a
globe less than an inch in diameter, in
which is produced an Image practically

Sullr's Courtship.
While on a secret mission to Paris
in 1583 Rosny had fallen in love with
the daughter of the president! t. Mes-
mir. The young lady was handsome
and klMd, but while paying her his Ad-
dresses he heard of a Mile de Courte-
nay, who Was rVported to be tWautitful,
well borh and wealthy besides. Pru-
dence suggested that he should make
her the Baroness de Rosny, but he was
already half committed to the other.
While he was pondering the subject
he arrived one day at an inn in Nogent
and found, to his dismay, that by an
unlucky chance both ladies were lodged
In it, Mile. de St: Mesmin in the left
wing and Mile. de Courtenay in the
right. -Both were ready to marry him,
and he was ready to marry one of
them, but could not decide which. It
was a very awkward position for the
wavering lover, and at tirst he thought
of' saving himself by instant flight.
While he hesitated Mile. de St. Mes-
win's younger sister saw him and ex-
pressed her surprise that he ihad been
half an hour In the house without vis-
iting them. The decisive moment had
evidently come. "Turn to the right,"
whispered the friend who was with
him. He.did so, and Anne de Courte-
nay became his wife.-H. 0. Macdowell
in Macmillan's Magazine. -

There was hunger In the house of the
When night had come down there had
come with It from the crest of the
mountains, from the black mouths or
the passes, from the depths of the dis-
mal canyons, a wind that cut like a
knife and shriveled like fire, and now
and then a gu.;t had brought hall to
.ting like bird shot. The wolf had gone
back to his lair and given up the hunt
for tie night. There would be no game
afoot for him In sncli weather.
Whien morning came the weather had
softened a bit. and their e snow-
flakes flying about in wild confusion.
The wolf- sat up at the mouth of his
lair arid whined and complained. As
he felt the pangs of hung* he howled
dismally. No beast of prey can- find
bis game blindfolded. Back In the cave
was a mother wolf, with her two young,
softly growling to herself as she heard
the howls of the father.
By and by the wind ceased for a mo
ment, as if smothered by the falling
flakes, and then It came with noisy
complaintt up the narrow valley and
around the rocky cliffs and big bowl-
derl. The wolf ceased howling. The
wind brought him a taint-a scent. He
stood on his hind logs and pawed the
air and sniffed and showed his fangs.
A moment later he signaled for the
mother wolf to join him. She also
reared up and sniffed at the air.
It surely was the scent of game. It
was feeble and came from afar, but It
was worth investigation. With a half
angry growl at each other born of hun-
ger and greed, the wolves bounded
away down the wind. The falling cur-
tain of snow limited their vision to
yards, but a wolf's nose guides him
after he becomes blind of old age.
"We will go out this morning," said
the leader of the park patrol to his
men. "We will go north, east, south
and west. The buffaloes will be lying
up in the thickets in such a storm as
this, and the wolves will ble hungry to
find them."
They went in pairs, the strong and
hardy men who brave the seasons to
protect life in the great park set aside
for the nation away up where the wa-
ters of the muddy Missouri are as cold
'as the Arctle ocean and as clear as
The buffaloes would have only one

men turned their backs on each other,
leaned forward on their snowshoes and
in thirty seconds were hidden from
oeth other's sight. They knew the
groves, the thickets, the spots which
the buffalo would seek for shelter, and
they skirted or passed through such
places with the' stealthy tread of
"frk.f It is the snarl of a wolf!"
,The two men who had .gone to,.the
. jorth halted in their tracks with. hand
to ear and listened. As the wind had
brought the scent to the wolf at the
door of his lair so it also brought the
menacing s'narle of a beast of prey to
the expectant patrollers.
"Wolves, for surely"
"And after buffalo! Straight ahead!"
The wolves had followed the scent to
Its source. A buffalo bull and three or
four cows, scattered some distance
from the main herd, were sheltered ur
in a small grove on the bank of a creek.
The bull had come to his prime in thE
wild and rugged park. He was not a

A Blow From a Lion's Paw.
A man entered a London theater In
the early morning and found to his
horror that four lions, which were
housed there, had broken from their
cage. One gave him a blow with its
paw, then took him in its mouth. The
blow from a lion's paw 1i said to be,
after the stroke of a whale's tall and
the kick of a giraffe, the strongest
thing In nature, so that the victim was
dead when the keeper went to the res-
