One October evening, when he had been hunting In the woods all day, he came to a little lake nestling among the hills, its surface covered ,with fallen leaves of every color from the lightest yellow hue to the deepest crimson. And looking down a valley he saw a landscape that filled him with About Queer Birds. One of the most singular of birds is the chanting hawk. The sexes pair for life.

"Some day I'm going to build one here." And he did. Now, I'm going to tell you how he came to carry out what flvas but a thought your assurance." And straightway he fell asleep. Now. It happened that this was Halloween, and a party of girls were coming to spend it at this very cottage. Flora Stebblns, a daughter of the owner, was the hostess, and the others were her guests. Mr. Dix went to sleep about dark, which comes early at the last of October, and the young Tadios arrived about S o'clock. "My goodness gracious!" exclaimed Miss Stebblns "There's some kind of a light Inside. It looks as if there were a fire on the hearth. Walt a minute till I reconnoiter." She went to a window and saw the slumbering Mr. Dix sitting before a fire that was still blazing merrily. She beckoned to the others. They came and saw the same Looking to his right, he saw the deep red of a brick chimney against brown limbs of trees. He knew that where there was a chimney there must be a house and started to go and make an Investigation. He came upon a .very pretty cottage, with a broad piazza around it a Queen Anne roof and dainty windows. "And I'm jinged if I don't build a match to that" he added to his first assertion. There was not a living thing In or near the cottage, and it was evident that it was Intended only for summer use. Mr. Dix went up on the piazza and looked into the living room tli' i window. The apartment . ....ed cottage furniture, but the iriiief attraction was a large fireplace. "I've a good mind to sleep there tonight," he said to himself and tried the window to see if it were securely locked. It was, but Mr. Dix hunted for a place of ingress as energetically as he had hunted for game and found one by getting on the piazza roof a window not well secured. Going downstairs, he opened a door from the inside, admitting him to the wood house, and In a few minutes had a fire blazing on the hearth. Then he settled himself down In an easy chair before It and, looking at his reflection in a mirror on the mantel opposite him, he remarked: "Tour comfort is only equaled by while singing that he may be proached, though at other times ceedingly shy. Levaillant having killed a male bird, the female searched for him on all sides, uttering piteous cries. In another case, having killed a female, .the husband mounted to the tops of the trees and poured out a mingled strain of lamentation ifnd defiance.

It devours the arnui-dillobreaking their shells by carrying them high in the air and letting them fall upon the earth. When flying, the buffoon eagle has the appearance of a bird with the tail cut off. Its name is given from its habit of tubling like a buffoon in the air. The condor has been known to soar to an elevation almost six times greater than that at which the clouds are ordinarily suspended over our heads. s, England, a few weeks ago a fox was found to be destroying poultry. The time of the raids and their boldness were proof enough that the fox must be a female with young. Poisoned meat was prepared for her, and at once the raids ceased. A few days later one of the workmen of the estate came upon the den of a fox, at the mouth of which lay dead a whole litter of young ones. They had been poisoned. The mother had not eaten the doctored food herself, but had carried it home to her family. They must have died in the burrow, for it was evident from the signs that she had dragged them out into the fresh air to revive them and deposited them gently on the sand by the hole. Then in her perplexity she had brought various tidbits of mouse and bird and rabbit and placed at their noses to tempt them to wake up out of their strange sleep and eat as hungry children ought to eat. Who knows how long she watched beside the still forms and what her emotions were? She must have left the neighborhood soon after, however, for no one has seen her since about the estateAtlantic Monthly. A Plant's Drink. When we cut flowers we put them in water to keep them fresh. Like human beings, they can exist for long periods on water alone, as the liquid forms a considerable portion of their bulk. The drinking capabilities of plants vary a great deal, and at a recent scientific exhibition held at England, some ingenious devices were shown to register the different actions of plant life. The apparatus consists of a twin glass tube with a coiled formation at the base. The flower is placed through a cork into the water in the upper end of the branch tube, and the lower end, which is inserted in a vessel filled with water, is lifted out and replaced, thus allowing an air bubble to enter the tube. As the plant drinks the water the bubble is forced along the coiled glass tube as fresh water enters behind it, and the amount taken by the flower is, of course, the quantity behind the air globe.

The idea was eagerly caught upon, and Flora was urged to play the part. The others returned to the vehicle that had brought them and waited for the play to be over and her to join them in a retreat Mr. Dix was awakened by the fall ing of some article behind him and. h. . M opening his eyes, saw a girl's face reflected in a mirror before him. But only for an instant If he had been wide awake he would doubtless have arisen from his chair immediately anil made an investigation. As it was. he delayed just long enough to allow the conspirators to make good their escape. He did not even hear the sound of wheels, for the carriage had gone far enough to prevent that Flora getting into It near the gate. When Mr. Dix got fairly around he did what he would have been expected to do. He went to the hall and out through the front door. He encountered nothing, and all he heard was a instant sound of laughter, but so distant that he was not sure whether It He was was or was not laughter. very much puzzled. Mr. Dix had a job of hunting on his bands far different from following up game. He was a methodical chap and began by learning to whom the cottage belonged. Then he went to the winter residence of its owner ostensibly to peddle books. He could not be driven away until he had caught sight of Flora Stebblns, whom he at once recognized as the reality of the image he had seen In the mirror on Allhallow r& She recognized him, but pretended ignorance of him.

How I found the celebrated Impera-to- r diamond does not pertain especially to this story, but where I found it is important, for my effort to get it away from the region where it had Iain ever since a lump of pure carbon was crystallized and became a gem as big as a walnut is what I am going to tell you about. When I was a youngster I ran away from home and a few weeks later found myself in the province of Minas Geraes, in Brazil, where the diamond mines are. I worked in the mines for five years and couldn't very well do that without learning something about diamonds. One Sunday I was out on a tramp and, stopping to rest, noticed near me a stone that it struck me looked like a diamond in the rough. I took it up to examine it and found it exactly like the uncut stones I had dug up for the diamond company, only I had never seen one half the size. I was a good deal upset for if the thing was a diamond I was rich. But, as I have said, it was the getting away with It that I'm going to tell about It was a diamond, sure enough, and one of the big ones of the world. While I was looking at it Jim Stivers came up, and I was fool enough to let him see it. He knew right off that it was worth the biggest part of a million dollars, and a stone like that is a great temptation for any one. He congratulated me on my find and began at once to plot to get it from me. Jim had more sense than I in this. He didn't tell any one about my having it except three men whom he used to get It away from me. He knew I would go to Rio with It, and his plan was to have me waylaid and the stone captured. Of course I didn't know just what he would do, but I did know that once I got out of the region of law and orderin other words, off by myself somebody would try for my property I concluded to endeavor to fool whoever suspected I had it with me by playing a part The plan I adopted was this: I found a countryman who was going down with a load of wood and told him I would go with him. He said he was agreeable, and 1 slept the night before we started near his wagon, which was already loaded. During the night I took one of the logs one that I would recognize easily and, boring a big hole in it under a piece of loose bark, put my diamond in It Then, plugging up the hole, I let down the bark, first putting a little glue between it and the wood to hold it in place. Then I threw the log back on to the load. We started early In the morning, and I, not wishing to be identified with the woodman, at times kept in his rpur and at times in advance of him. At though I hadn't told any one I was going on the trip. I found the road picketed. I passed a man who looked at me searchingly. and it wasn't lonu before, hearing footsteps behind me, I turned and saw him coming with two others. They caught up with me. and one of them, who knew me by sit;ht. said. "That's the man." and. addressing me, added: "Young feller, the diamond company has missed a valuable uncut stone and. having been informed that it is in your possession, has sent us to de mand it of you Please hand it out." "I haven't any diamond," 'I replied. "I'm as poor as poverty and don't know where I shall get a bite to eat" They didn't waste any words, but two of them held tue while the third went through my pockets, my bair. my beard indeed, every part of me Then lie took off my clothes. leaving me stark naked, and ex.aruined every seam, every Inch of cloth, even holding them up and looking through them to tue light "I reckon he has either sent it on ahead or left it behind to come later,' uid the man who had done the search iug All would have gone well had not the woodcutter's wagon come lumbering down the road and he bad to ask me in a familiar way what my appearing in my birthday clothes meant The men pricked up their ears at this and asked him if he knew me. and he told them that we were fellow travelers. He got a thorough searching for his pains, the men thinking that he was carrying the gem for me. Then the examined the horses, the harness, the wagon, looking even Into the hubs of the wheels. One of them suggested that what they were looking for might be between the logs of wood, and they threw every log off on to the road, carefully watching for the diamond between them. But It was of no use. The stone was not to be found. They didn't like to give it up: but. believing that I had conveyed the treasure by some other method, they finally concluded to do so. They had instructions from Stivers not to hurt me. If they could get the diamond they were to do so. but they were not to commit murder or make a case against those implicated in the attempted robbery. So I was allowed to proceed. When we reached Rio I took the log in which I had hidden the diamond off the load, paid the woodman for it and. putting it on my shoulder, went away with It I sailed for Amsterdam, that I might get my stone cut, and when it was in proper condition sold' It for $650,000 to a Hanoverian prince. V fc Woolcott during the summer met Miss Martlndale and did a lot of spooning, with the usual result However, the affair was not brought to a finish, and Woolcott was obliged to take a thousand mile trip for the purpose of making a proposition. He was preparing to do so when the lady wrote him' that she would be at M. shortly and would be happy to receive him there. Since M. was some 900 miles nearer than her residence, Woolcott concluded to see her there instead. Miss Martindale wrote that she would be at the Cliffs, meaning that she would visit a family of that name. Woolcott took this to mean that she would stop at a hotel. On alighting at the station he asked a man who was in a hurry where he could find the Cliffs. The man pointed to a handsome house on a hill near by. He found the baggage agent and, pointing to the house, told him to send his trunk there; then he set off to walk the distance. On arriving he opened the front door, entered a spacious hallway and saw a gentleman reading a newspaper before an open fireplace. "The Cliffs, I believe?" said Woolcott The gentleman looked up at him over a pair of glasses, somewhat surprised, and replied in the affirmative. "Are you the landlord?" asked Woolcott A twinkle came into the gentleman's eye, and he replied that he was the proprietor. "I would like a room in your house for a few days," continued the traveler. "Have you a young lady staying with you of the name of Martindale?" A light seemed to break in upon the gentleman's brain. "Miss Florence Certainly. She arrived Martindale? a few days ago. But she's out in an auto just now. She will not return till late tonight Be seated and I'll call a servant to show you to a room." Howard Cliff, banker, entertaining a few friends at his country residence, had sent them off in his car, remaining at home himself. He went himself for the butler, instead of ringing for him, to tell him to show a gentleman to his room who supposed he was in a hotel and who was not to be told he was In a private house. Then Mr. Cliff returned to the guest, followed by the butler, who took him upstairs. While Woolcott was making a toilet his baggage arrived and was sent up to him. When he came downstairs he found Mr. Cliff in the library. "We have very few guests at present," said the supposed landlord. "You see, ours is a summer house, and we shall close up for the winter within a few days or a week. It depends upon how long 1 can keep those who are now with me. You will have to dine alone, for all have gone on the auto party." "I don't like that." said Woolcott. "If you are alone may we not dine together?" "Certainly." "What wine have you?" Mr. Cliff mentioned several kinds of wine, and his guest selected champagne He asked for u wine card, but the host told him it was nniiece.sary Woolcott regaled his host with one bottle and called for another. The dinner was delightfully served, and altogether Woolcott found the landlord a very agreeable companion Judging by the number of foreign places he was ta miliar with. Woolcott thought that he must have kept hotels all ovei the world. Mr. Cliff suggested that, since Value of the Wireless. the auto party would not return till late, perhaps Woolcott would not sit up for them.

The wireless reaches out beyond the rays of the searchlight, keeping the vessel in touch with scores of other ship3 in the equipped. J same ocean pathway, and with land stations, so that a vessel is always in communication not only with other vessels, but with the shore. A recent experiment with the wireless has shown that it is capable of transmitting messages from continent to continent. The ultimate possililities of the wireless have not been reaceed. The invention is still in its infancy. New experiments are constantly being made with remarkable results. The time will probably come when the movements steamers will of all ocean-goin- g be fully directed from land, just as railroad trains are dispatched from some central point. When this time comes there will be practically no danger from collision, and accidents will be reduced to explosion, fire and other extraordinary causes.

Peter De Wint the English landscape painter, was accustomed each e year to have a show of his pictures before sending them to the "Water Color society's exhibition. Oa such occasions his friends frequently bought pictures', which, of course, appeared at the public exhibition marked "Sold." Among the painter's friends was a wealthy man who wanted to appear a patron of art and at the same time keep his money. He managed this by loudly admiring the paintings already sold. He was always a bit too late to buy the pictures that pleased him most and having seen them, as he wa wont to declare, he could never content himself with less beautiful works. De Wlnt at last suspected the man's sincerity, and when the next show day came round he concluded to test him. After plenty of time had been allowed for De Wint's friends to make their purchases the rich man arrived. As usual, his eye soon fell on two "perfect gems" marked "Sold." Turning to the artist he said: "Now, De Wint those are exactly tbe things I should like to possess. What a pity they are not to be had." "My dear sir," said the painter, slapping him on the back, "1 knew you would like them, so I put the tickets on to keep them for you." The awkwardness of the situation was only relieved when the enthusiastic admirer became the somewhat un willing purchaser of the two "gems."

President Tim Murnane of the New England league has made a decision on an odd play in settling a disputed game between Portland and New Bedford. President Humane overruled his umpire on the play and awarded the game to Portland, which would have won it otherwise. Murnane's decision explains the disputed play as follows: "One man was out and one man was on third base when a fly was knocked to the outfield, which was juggled by one outfielder and caught by another. The umpire allowed a double play after the ball had been relayed to third because the runner left the base after the ball left the first man's hands. The umpire should have allowed the run, as the runner was entitled to leave the base the moment the ball touched the fielder's hands, whether held, muffed or juggled. This run would have won the game and prevented it from going an extra inning. Accordingly the protest is allowed and the game awarded to Portland." K. O.

Resistance to the Sun. Animals whose capacity for thermal regulation is limited, such as rabbits and monkeys, rapidly succumb to exposure to the tropical sun. In the came circumstances the skin of a man rises some 3 or 4 degrees O. above the normal. Theoretically the black skin of negro races should absorb more hea than that of the white people. However, colored races are better able than the white to regulate their temperature under the influence of the tropical sun perhaps because perspiration Is more abundant The ape, although a native of the tropics, is less capable of resisting tbe sun than other animals and even the white man. This is no doubt attributable to the fact that its natural iiome Is in the forests. For certain monkeys two hours of exposure to the tropical sun Is fatal.

Boland has an enviable grid-Iro- n reputation, and on him the Tiger supporters were pinning a large part of their hopes.

"You have declined to give up that which to a woman is a great deal, while to you it is nothing. Miss Owens was right to insist on being married by a parson, and you were ungenerous to refuse her.

M. Stephenson. James Marion Stephenson was born March 1, 1863; died September 30, 1913; age 50 years, 6 months and 29 days. He was a son of Thomas V. Stephenson and Esther Dalton and was one of a family of thirteen children. Marion Stephenson and Dakota Beck were married December 25, 1884, and to them were born ten children. The deceased is survived by his wife, four sons, three daughters, one grand son, his father, four brothers, four sisters and a large number of other relatives. - Mr. Stephenson was a man of exceedingly quiet manners. It was never his disposition to talk much of himsejf and his personal affairs. This was one of his many good traits of character which enabled him to win and hold the friendship of all with whom he came in contact. And few men ever had as many loyal and devoted friends. All who knew him liked him. His business associates trusted him. The numerous workmen whom he employed gave him a good name. And his neighbors, . who knew him best, mourned his death as that of a brother Truly, his communty will miss him. gaged in farming and stock trading. Later he embarked in the timber business. At the time of his death he held large land and timber interests in Clinton, Cumberland, Russell and Wayne counties, Kentucky, and in Tennessee. Mr. Stephenson had been a member of Lairsville Lodge of Free Masons since May, 1886. He was treasurer of the lodge at the time of his' death, and had previously served several years as secretary. He was buried with Masonic honors in the Rowena Cemetery. Several Masons from Jamestown, Albany and Gap Creek lodges assisting the Lairsville brethren. A large concourse of people attended the funeral. Religious services were conducted by Rev. Daniel Tarter of the Jamestown Methodist church. When about seventeen years of age Marion Stephenson made a profession of religion at Pine Grove church. He never joined any church. During his last illness he talked very freely to hi3 family and friends about spiritual matters. He realized the approach of death and the anxiety of his loved ones, and he told them to have no fears for him, that the Lord had forgiven him of all the wrongs he ever did and he was prepared to die. He said he had meditated over his condition a great deal when alone for the past year or two, and regretted that he had not taken a bolder stand as a Christian. If he Was permitted to get well again, he said, he intended to devote the remainder of his life to the service of the Master. But he wanted all his friends to know that he was going to Heaven if he died. Mr. Stephenson was confined to his bed for six weeks before his death. His system was broken down from overwork and exposure in looking after his bus-iniin various places. He suffered great pain from typoid -- The death of Mr. Stephenson is indeed a sad blow to hi3 family and friends. But he leaves them the rich heritage of a good name, the memory of many deeds of Christian kindness, the record of a life well spent and the clear hope that they can see him again in a little while when the mists' have rolled away.

Sluggish bowels will be followed by loss of appetite, restlessness during sleep, irritability and a. dozen and one similar evidences of physical disorder. At the first sign of such disorder give the child a teaspoonful of Dr. Caldwell's Svrup Pepsin at night on retiring and .repeat the dose the following night if necessary more than that will scarcely "be needed. You will find that the child will recover Its accustomed good spirits t once and will eat and sleep normally. This remedy is a vast improvement over salts, cathartics, laxative waters And similar things, which are altogether too powerful for a child. The homes of Sirs. Carrie McDonald, 1036 Trigg Ave., Memphis, Tenn., and Mrs. Sallie E. Griffith, Veechdale, Ky are always supplied with Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, and with them, as with thousands of others, there is no substitute for this grand laxative. It is really more than a laxative, for it contains superior tonic properties which help to tone and strengthen the stomach, liver and bowels so that after a brief use of it all laxatives can be dispensed with and nature will do its own work. Anyone wishing to make a trial of this remedy before buying it in the regular way of a druggist at fifty cents or one dollar a lar;;e bottle (family size) can have a sample bottle sont to the home free of charge by simplv addressing Dr. "W.

It was a wretched, wet summer; he went out In a miserable morning to paint, took a chill, and aggravated the internal inflammation that followed to a dangerous degree by refusing to take the doctor's medicines. The sequel is delightful. Irritated at the doctor's remonstrances, he demanded what was the worst thing he could take. Beef, they told him, and beef he insisted upon having at once. It was late at night and Matlock was scoured for some time before beef could be found. Then, says Mrs. Arthur Severn, he "enjoyed his late supper thoroughly, and, though we all waited anxiously till the morning for the result, It had done him no harm. And when he was told pepper was bad for him he dredged it freely over his food in defiance." A Special For the benefit of needle and embroidery workers an Indiana man has designed a handy apparatus.

Arriving at an inn midway between the plain and the summit of the range, he concluded to make It his headquarters, going about among the mountains sketching. He arrived in the evening and concluded to put off any work till the morrow. The inn being in a lonely spot and at the time apparently no other boarders in the house, he seated himself ona veranda, where he could overlook the plain far below, and called for supper. The cloth was laid by a girl in a short petticoat encircled with stripes of various gay colors, beneath which appeared a dainty foot and ankle. Hoxie was very young, and youth Is unthinking. He permitted himself to gaze too admiringly on the senorlta and did not take the pains not to do so while she was looking. He spoke some Spanish and began to chat with her, but could get nothing except "Yes, and "No, senor," for she was a diffident little thing, especially in the presence of one in the social scale so far above her. There were many points in the vicin-t- y where attractive views were to be obtained, and Hoxie attended to his work, not thinking about the girl when doing so. .But in the evening between supper and bedtime he needed company and after supper would invent ways to keep her with him on the veranda. The inn was kept by her aunt, and the two women were the only persons in the house besides the few wayfarers who stopped there. The aunt Hoxie addressed as senora, the girl as Peplta, which was her name. When he was not out sketching he was continually calling on the one or the other for something either a glass of wine or a bit of cheese or for Pepita to bring her guitar and play for him. "You are troubled about something, Pepita," he said one evening to the girl while she waited upon him at supper. "What is it?" "Nothing, senor," she said. "Yes, there is something you fear. Tell me." "Well, then, senor, there are bandits You should not in these mountains. go out sketching." "You must be mistaken. I asked about that before coming here and was told that I would be as safe here as in Madrid." This did not appear to relieve the girl's fears. There is something that draws a man to a woman who fears for him, and Hoxie drew the girl to him and kissed her. "It is very lovely for you," he said, "to be anxious for my safety. Don't worry. I think I can take care of myself." There was a sound in some shrub-oer- y just beyond the veranda. Pepita started, gasped and trembled. Hoxie looked up at her, surprised, and was about to ask her what had frightened her when she ran into the house. The next evening was very warm, and Hoxie lay smoking in a hammock in the yard.

Hoxie was never in a hurry about anything He said nothing to the landlady about the matter, preferring t think it over before doing so He remembered the sound in the bushes where the evening before he had kissed Pepita. and her fright Here was an explanation. "Pepita," he said the next morning when he was alone with her. "Yes. senor." "You have a lover, one whom have never seen." "Yes. senor." "Is he a good fellow?" "Yes, senor." faintly.
