Operation of the Law of "The Survival Sur-vival of the Fittest." The life of plants as well as of auimals began in the water, and from water plants of simple structure there gradually developed the forms fitted to thrive upon land, writes William J. Hopkins in Chicago Record. Re-cord. The first land plants of which we have evidence, although probably not the (list that existed, were fernlike fern-like in character. As their number became greater the crowding forced each plant to reach out higher after the sunlight and the air. In this stuggle for existence began the evolution evolu-tion of those most fitted to survive, which has resulted in the forms that we know to-day. Those which developed devel-oped the tallest trunks conquered the bhi irter varieties and forced them either to die out completely or to occupy less favorable situations. The trees of the first great forests, which became tiie beds of coal of the principal prin-cipal coal-forming period, wt-rc weak in structure, not far removed from the ferns, with pithy t inks, requiring requir-ing much moisture and warmth. They were not well adapted to propagate pro-pagate and spread, as their seeds were very small and incapable of withstanding with-standing rigorous conditions. From these forms there gradually developed the palms and trees somewhat resembling resem-bling the present cone-bearing forms, or evergreens, this process of development develop-ment continuing until in comparatively compara-tively recent ages came the prevailing prevail-ing trees of our modern forests. These may be divided into two great classei the narrow-leaved, cone-hearing trees, or evergreens, anil the broad-leaved trees, which usually shed their leaves in the autumn. All have a great advantage over the earliest forms im their strong trunks, capable of supporting a great weight of branches and leaves and enabling them to attain heights of 100 to 300 feet above the earth. The fight for place and existence is now chielly between be-tween the evergreens and the broad-leaved broad-leaved or deciduous trees, and in this struggle the broad-leaved trees are so farsuperior that the evergreens have already been driven to a great extent to t he less temperate, cold regions or to the drier and less favorable soils. The distribution of forest trees de pends not only upon the characteristics of the particular kind and its adaptability adapt-ability to the soil and clima.'e, but also upon the chance of distribution of the seeds and the provision against its destruction by animals. Many trees are subject to the depredations of various insects enemies which may prevent seeding or may even destroy the tree, and the seeds of most trees form a more or less palatable food for birds or beasts. Some trees are better protected than others against these chances of destruction and the better protected trees stand a correspondingly corres-pondingly better chance of increasing increas-ing in numbers and "surpassing the other kinds. If the squirrels or the wild pigs find the nuts of the white oak sweeter and more wholesome than those of some other oaks the standing white oak will leave few if any descendants and will eventually disappear while the red oaks flourish. In entering upon new ground the trees having the highest seeds will be the first to take possession, their seeds being carried to greater distance than those of the others. The light seeds of the willow or the seeds of the maple, which, although heavier, have upon them wing-like attachments will enable their kind to far outstrip the nut-bearing trees, like the walnut, wal-nut, hickory and oak. These heavy-seeded heavy-seeded trees are limited in their reproduction, practically to the distance dis-tance at which a nut falls to the ground or to the chance distribution by the forgotton hoards of the squirrel. squir-rel. JJy the swiftness of their march the light-seeded plants will thus more quickly reach regions where the rainfall is just sufficient to furnish fur-nish the roots enough moisture or the growing season is just long enough to enable them to mature the wood of each years growth. Beyond this point they cannot live. The heavy-seeded forms arc plodding surely sure-ly along behind them and in the final struggle the trees best adapted to the soil at any given locality will endure by the overwhelming of the others.

Now according accord-ing to the accounts of travelers, this bird when alarmed Ins. a way of Hiding Hid-ing its head; the idea seeming to be that if it cannot see the pursuer, the pursuer cannot sue it. If closing the eyes really stopped pursuit, what a pleasantly easy time this sufferer from woman's whims would have. Rut troubles do n.it vanish thus easily, and we laugh at the poor dunce of a bird, who dreams that he has blotted out the world and its miseries just by refusing to see them; yet there are other dunces with the same number of feet, and they do not all wear feathers. Once upon a time, as the fairy talcs express it. some hunted ostriches put their heads together they would have been scurrying over the sands and when they were huddled like boys in a foot-ball scrimmage, one of them suddenly exclaimed "I cannot see any hunter; there is none," and so said they all: but they lost their feathers just the same. On another occasion an ostrich thrust his head into a narrow hole, lie had a moment before been in the full glare of the sun, but in the darkness dark-ness he saw nothing, so he communed with himself, "I see no sun, 1 see nothing; therefore, there is no sun, no nothing. Up to this time I have been dreaming." But the herbage kept on growing, and the ardent sun looked after the neglected eggs and gave the final warming influence to hatch out another generation of dunces. There are pe jple in the world who profess to be good, they bend the knee in the sanctuary, they give freely of their money, they shout loud "Aniens:" until some fateful day they come tumbling down in local esteem; for this Sunday School superintendent or that deacon has robbed a bank or wronged a womam or any one of a long list of things that ruin life and bring disgrace on fair careers. Then is the favorable tim..! for the human ostrich to come along in the form of a young man, full of questionings in his mind, and full of cmceit when his mind, on little evidence or much, is once made up. He argues thus to himself: "What did So and So profess? pro-fess? Christliness. What did he do? Stole even a po ir widow's mite. 0;i what did he base his religion? The Bible. What is suppled to give authority to the Bible? God. Therefore, There-fore, I will not belicvj in God nor the Bible nor religion." I am not intending to argue here what things are true and what are untrue, un-true, but 1 want you to see the charm-in;? charm-in;? du i2jr of ymr 1 i.ric. Let me show you your own ostrich way, as in a mirror. All the ancients were prepared pre-pared to swear that the earth was fl.it and the sun its attendant satellite They were even prepared to kill those who would testify differently. But while they were professing to run the universe to suit their narrow minds, what was the truth? The earth was globular, and its orbit around the sun had been practically unchanged for ages. Now it is evident that all these millions, ignorant of the truth, believed be-lieved In un truth, and yet all their myriad minds did neither affect nor hinder the planets in their appointed journeys. Again, suppose we all with one accord should deny the existence of the sun, we should merely proclaim our own blindness and the sun would not be affected a particle. It would be still there, hanging hotly above us, our denials of its evisterice would be indescribable nothings. Now supposing God to exisf; the Sacred Book of any number of different differ-ent religions with any number of different inaccuracies lived forth by any number of frightful frauds-fakirs frauds-fakirs of Hindustan or evil men and thieves in Christian churches do not affect His existence or put Him aside. If He exist, u million denials of His existence amount to nothing more than did ages of ignorance in relation to the power that kept our globe circling. cir-cling. If a basis of the universe-be true, it has been true always and always will be true, even If never discovered. Thiuk of the modern chaining of electricity and you will see what I mean. The wondrous power we now control to pull our trains, light cur rooms, cook our meals, lias been here as long as the world has existed. It is a truth of nature and still would lie, 1 even though we never had wrenched ALL DRUGGISTS its secret forward into light. Ever the sun shines.

Its rough appearance, its dangerous points, its unfinished and unpolished sides are ni t the right things by which to estimate the original of which it is a memento. Think now if you please of those wretched failures fail-ures among nun and women of good profession, and learn what I would argue concerning them. Mere fragments frag-ments are they, and bear no resemblance resem-blance to the grand block of which they were once a part. They have caused you heretofore to bury your head from the sunlight of day. Open your eyes now and a wholesome world growing more and more full of great things, learned to be true, is yours to look upon and disport yourself in fur your little day. Electric Bitters. Electric Bitters is a medicine suited for any season, but perhaps more gen erally needed when the languid ex hausted feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid and sluggish and the need of a tonic or alterative is felt.
