Mr. Voorhees is quite amusing. Mr.
Rockefeller did not make the oil. The
editor of the Star can remember read
ing by a very good lamp a number cf
years before he heard of Mr. Rocke
feller, whose principal work has been
in the organization of a highly syste
matic trust, which in breaking down
smaller business concerns and cor-f
rupting public affairs has done more'
harm than good. The Standard Oil
trust is. an excellent business organ
ization, but the American public
would have just as much oil, and
probably at a lower price, if it had,
never been organized. At present,
the Standard Oil Company is trying
to bring about a quarrel (and nobody
knows where such a quarrel would
end) between this country and Great
Britain in order that it may ship gas

We do not know Mr. Rockefeller, so

Path of the Kakapo. ( j
l Several birds make regular paths to :
I and from their resorts. Those of the
1 Antarctic penguins are' noted by all
I explorers In their region. Very no-
tlceable are those in the haunts of the
kakapo, the large, rock-dwelling, bur bur-i
i bur-i row-nesting owl-like parrot of the
mountains of New Zealand. They
: beat down regular paths along the
j spurs and ridges where they abound,
i so that a person might be excused for
j supposing they were meant for human
1 feet. It is along these avenues that
j the birds go to and fro on their noo
i '.urnal rambles, and as they march
they snip off and perhaps eat every
protruding spear of grass or weed,
keeping the path perfectly clean.
When the path is burled In snow they
still follow It on the surface and soon
beat down a track.
