f i v i One Advantage Women Have. Did you ever stop to consider what Plea for an Offering. There is a difference between an offering and a collection in the mind of colored at least one preacher, who is persistent when ho announces that he wants money for any certain objecL Not a great whllo ago, vhen it came time to announce the collection, which is deposited on the table in front of the pulpit in full view of the minister, he said : I want a offering dis morning and not a collection. Maybe you dont know it, but dere is a difference between a collection and a offering. A offering is what you give out of your heart and a collection is anything dat Is left over. When ydu give a offering dere is more heart in it than dere is in a collection. Remember, bredren and sistern, it is a offering dat I want dis mawnin. an advantage poor downtrodden women have over men when it comes to a well-know- n place of residence?1 asked the philosopher of the suffrage advocate. No, of course not. Well, when a man wants to claim a legal residence anywhere hes got to do a whole lot of things before he can do so. Hes got to live in the state a year or so, in the county six months and the election district in which he expects to vote thirty days, I think. Now, what does a woman do? Walks into a hotel or boarding house, plumps her satchel down, and shes at home. You may laugh, but its a fact."

Next in gorgeousness of color, often to be seen at a wintry comes the metallic-huebluejay saucy, noisy and handsome, with a beauty that covers a multitude of sins, according to some observers. At any rate, he is the first to cry thief, thief, on all occasions and the last fellow to give up the booty. All the same, I believe that this engagingly human chap is a much maligned bird, for all that Langille insists that he sees them lugging around dead sparrows in the tree tops, picking out the eyes and brains at their leisure. Of course, such tales give the jays a doubtful reputation that will bear washing. Myself, I have only seen them despoiling the winter cocoons of the destructive tussock moth. The government report also confirms my good opinion of them. Occasionally crops out the jays relationship to the mischievous crow. characLike that bird of questionable ' ter, he skips about teasing other birds by imitating the call of their dreaded enemy, the hawk. Owls, too, are game for him, for he cannot see one blinking and motionless in the sunshine without making unpleasant remarks in close proximity to its unseeing eyes. Doubtless, however; the owl takes his revenge when night comes, and many a juicy jay pays the penalty of his daylight impertinence. By the way crows are often annoyed by impudent kingbirds, at whom, in turn, the saucy little wren has his fling; and so on, I suppose, down the scale, following the example of Swifts lesser fleas. But if the jay is a noisy chap during the autumn and winter months comes May and mating time. Then he is as silent as a pickpocket, gliding through the bushes with never a word to anyone. He appreciates at its true value the old maxim that silence is golden. There is a time for all things, and he intelligently discriminates which is more than can be said of many of the great unfeathered. According to Lowell, his kingly crown sometimes leads him into trouble, as does occasionally that Insignia of royalty of our own order.

A recent number of the Emu con- tains reproductions of two very interesting photographs, the first showing the run, or playhouse, of the great bower bird (chlamydera nuchalls), and cockathe second a flight of bare-eyetoos (cacatua gymnopis), estimated at between 60,000 and 70,000 in number. Considerable interest attaches to a note on bird sanctuaries In New Zealand, where, it appears, all the sur- d viving flightless species are now by the government. d nro-tecte- Baths of Ancient Times. Did the middle age bathe? said an Is it true that in mediantiquary. eval times bathing was unknown, that for 1,000 years in Europe there was not a man or woman who ever took a bath? No, said the old man vehemently. No, thank heaven, this is not true. Man was fairly clean in the middle ages. It is a libel to say he did not bathe. For I have looked this matter up and I find literary records of medieval baths. Thus, in the accounts of Queen Isabella, wife of Edward II., there is a charge for repairs of queens bath and gathering herbs for it.' On the arrival in London of Louis of Bruges in 1472 the chronicles say that there was ordered a bayne, or ij, which was covered with tentes of white cloth. I have found over six recorded instances of medieval bathing. Baths, I will admit, were in medieval days somewhat rare, but they were not so uncommon, so unknown, as certain historians would have us believe. One hath a month was the average among the aristocracy. A tragedy like this remains a prey. birds makes one thankful that have become subjects for rights legislation. How beautifully marked are the feathers of the jay. Each little plume is a veritable jewel of itself. Only to study one of these atoms of natures handiwork, discarded and floated down onto a bit of summery moss, is a liberal education in coloration. I frequently notice, too, how protective is the birds feather arrangement, particularly effective during the season when he is most exposed. The zigzag lines of color render him almost The two birds already mentioned, however, do not provide all of the bright feather color to our winter landscape, though they arc both very conspicuous of voice and plumage. The sociable, downie, energetic little caretaker of the hark, is very attractive both in manner and plumage, as he glides up and around some larvae infested hole, one eye on his audience and the other on some small grub who supposes himself secure from sight. This wee woodpecker, with his pretty pepper and salt suit and cap of gleaming ruby color set well hack on his intelligent noddle, is a charming acquaintance, winter or summer. If one is utilitarian a fad doctrine at present his usefulness in the matter of grub extermination should appeal to one. Someone has made an estimate of the number of larvae destroyed by one downie in a single season, but the figures are so appalling that I dare not repeat them doubtless doubly appalling from an insects possible point of view. The only questionable action that I have ever heard attributed to this confiding little chap is an entire disregard for the seafair sex during the son. John Burroughs asserts that he will ruthlessly hustle away from his own snug retreat any unfortunate little female who may seek shelter within. But when spring comes all this is changed, for he is a most devoted lover, husband and parent. The thought sometimes comes to me. What a drear place this earth would be if there were no birds about!

Nor does it lie in the fact that we do not yet certainly know whether they have In the caterpillar shape the faculty of sight or not, and do not even know the precise use ,of their most conspicuous organ in maturity, the antennae. Nor does it consist in this that they, of all created things, have furnished man with the symbol of his own immortality. It rather lies in the fact that, with all their varied life and activity, they represent an absolutely silent world. London non-nupti- ' Endurance of Locomotive.

A good temperance woman was led, In a very peculiar way, to revise her somewhat harsh judgment of the poor devil who cannot resist his cups and she is now the more charitable. She writes: For many years I was a great sufferer from asthma. Finally my health got so poor that I found I could not lie down, but walked the floor whilst others slept. I got so nervous I could not rest anywhere. Specialists told me I must give up the use of coffee the main thing that I always thought gave me some relief. I consulted our family physician, and he, being a coffee fiend himself, told me to pay no attention to their advice. Coffee had such a charm for me that in passing a restaurant and getting a whiff of the fragrance 1 could not resist a cup. I felt very lenient towards the drunkard who could not pass the saloon. Friends often urged me to try Postum, but I turned a deaf ear, saying, That may do for people to whom coffee is harmful, but not for me coffee and I will never part At last, however, I bought a package of Postum, although I was sure I could not drink it I prepared it as directed, and served it for breakfast Well, bitter as I was against it, I must say that never before bad I tasted a more delicious cup of coffee! From that day to this (more than two years) I have never had a desire for the old coffee. My health soon returned; the asthma disappeared, I began to sleep well and in a short time I gained 20 pounds in weight. One day I handed my physician the tablets he had prescribed for me, telling him I had no use for them. He stayed for dinner. When I passed him his coffee cup he remarked : I am glad to see you were sensible enough not to let yourself be persuaded that ooffeo was harmful. This is the best cup of coffee I ever drank, he continued; the trouble is so few people know how to make good coffee. When he got his second cup 1 told him he waa drinking Postum. He was incredulous, but I convinced him, and now he uses nothing but Postum in his home and has greatly improved in health.

He was 11 years in the senate. While colonel of the Third Colorado cavalry he pursued a band of hostile Comanches 500 miles, captured them, recovered the spoil of several merchandise caravans they had attacked and compelled the chiefs to sign a treaty, which was afterward observed in good faith. Mr. Shoup weighed about 300 pounds and was very tall. His rugged good nature and strong, shrewd character won him friends in national politics, as they had as a mining storekeeper In his early years.
