"A Native-Born Prince" During the reign of Edward I. the Welsh rose against the English de- claring that they would never acknowl- edge allegiance to any prince "but of their own nation and language and of unblamable life." Edward I,I was born In a castle at Carnarvon. Wales, and he was presented to the Welsh people as "a native- born prince of unblamable life who could speak no word of English•" From that date the recognized heir to the English throne has borne the title of Prince of Wales. Machine Almost Human A clever device, I:alled a serving machine, has been patented for wind- lng twine and other material on mar- line-wdund cables• Actuated by a 1-6- horse power motor, this little machine can be started at the end of a long cable and will automatically travel to the other end, winding the protecting material on the cable as it goes. It is said to do the work faster and bet- ter than six expert riggers could, and as the first• cost and maintenance are low, it is thought that it will increase the use of marline wound cable. Killing Birds Rapidly Commercializing of wild game birds and wild animals during the past cen- tury has caused their number to de- crease more than all the killing that had gone on during the. previous years of the Christian era. Today automo- biles and repeating guns skillfully utilized by a rapidly increasing popu- lation are hastening tile day when many species of wild life will have passed from the earth.--Nature Maga- zine. The Misogynist I am a woman hater; they bore me. They simper and giggle in a way that makes me tired. Their painted faces, penciled eye- brows, ruby lips and all their little tricks do not thrill me. Their talk is not interesting. I would not care to sit out a dance with one of them. I like the company of men so much better. I am a woman•--Town Topics A Bit Foggy " The old gentleman was lost in a London fog, so thick that he could scarcely see his hand before his face. He became seriously alarmed when he found himself In a slimy alley. Then he heard footsteps approaching. "Where am I going?" he asked anx- iously. A voice replied weirdly from the darlness: "Into the river. I've Just come out.,'--Everybody's Magazine. • A Serious Case A notoriously absent-minded man was observed walking down the street with one foot continually in the gutter, the other on the pavement. A friend meeting him said : "Good vening. How are you?" "Well," replied' the absent-mlnded one. "I thought I was very well when I left home. but now I don't know what's the matter •with me. I've been limping for the last half hour." Diseased youtlg doctor said to the girl of his choice, "Do you know, dear, I have a heart affection for you?" ."Have you had it lung?" she coyly inquired. "Oh, yes. I feel that I will liver roubled life thout you," he fervent- ly responded. "Then you had better asthma," she lisped softly. "Three Teacher, Three" A teacher asked: "How many kinds of flowers are there?" Three pupils held up their hands. She chose one to reply. "Well, Isidore, how many kinds of flowers are there?" "Three, teacher." "Indeed? And what are they?" "Wild. ta..m, and c9[!?,i Spend vacation pay with Chevro- let. Stave Chevrolet Corpany, Mon- ro• I will get my next suit from George Smith. You can be made healthy without Writer Declares Humming Birds Are Great Racers As the male humming bird takes no part or interest in the nest building or the rearing of the young, and a brief visit to any convenient flowers serves to satisfy his appetite, he has consider- able spare time at his disposal. Most of this he spends on certain favorite observation posts, whence he sallies forth occasionally in pursuit of a tres- passing hummer or bird of some other sort. Fven the cliff swallow is not immune from his attacks and seems quite unable to avoid his onslaughts. The humming bird frequently mounts ver.tically into the air until almost out of sight, then descends like a bullet di- rectly at the object of his attention. If the other bh'd flies, the humming bird follows ; if not, he passes within a few inches, sweeping through an arc which carries him upward again to repeat the process until fired., The downward swoop is accompanied by a long shrill whistle which is characteristic of the species and is often the first indication of its arrival in the spring. To a casual student of humming bird psychology they appear to be actuated more by love of the excrement of the chase than by anger or Jealousy, as the other birds are not harmed if they choose to ignore the antics of the hum- ming bird, as is very often the case. 1 have often seen a humming bird ap- proach and hover in front of another as if bantering it to a game of tag, then dart off, hotly pursued by the sec- ond. Th females seem to enjoy this sport as well as the males.--Robet S. Wood in Bird Lore. [ Famous Lawsuits That Lasted Over Century The recent case, in which a couple of years elapsed between the commission of a grime and its discovery, falls far short of a recurd. The famous case of Eugene Aram, which later formed the subject of the novel by Lytton and the poem by Hood, is a leading one, for the murder was committed in 1745, and Aram was executed in 1759. ' In the same century a man named Horne was executed for the murder of his child 35 years earlier and there is also the case of Governor Wall, who was hanged in 1802 for a murder committed in 1782. Apart from capital crimes, the law's delays have always been notorious. It was stated recentl.', for tnstance, that a Lawsuit about some land, which had started in 1.776, had Just been finally settled, and a litigant is even now suing the United States government over property alleged to have been tlienated during the American Revolu- tionary war. A well-known barrister sed to re- call a remarkable case of this kind. In 1863 he prosecuted, as counsel for the Crown, a man who was 0arged wlth stealing a leaf from a parish (egister in 1S03.--London Tit-Bits. + No Escape Shrieks and yells of the most appalling type were issuing from the little cottage, and quite a crowd had collected. Presently, clothed in the full majesty and dignity of the law, a policeman came stridlng onto the scene• • "Now, then," he cried gruffly, "what is all this about?" "Please, sir," spoke up a small boy, "that's only my brother• He's crying because mamma's eyesight ain't very good and she's deaf, too." A ghastly series of shrieks interrupt- ed the explanation• "He must be a very feeling little fel- low," remarked the officer, wiping away a furtive tear. "Yes, sir, he is. You sde, ma's mending his trousers, and he's got them on."--Los Angeles Times. Sure Was Effective 'q suppose, Henry," said the old gentleman to his new son-in-law, "that you are aware the check for $50,000 I put among your wedding presents was merely for effect•" "Oh, ye, sir," responded the cheer- ful Henry. "And the effect was ex- cellent. The bank cashed it this morn- ing without a word."--Vanity Fair. How He Knew "Gerald, what train does the man next door catch to town?"

And upon these islands rested some of the strangest of all the thousands of odd creatures that have lived In past ages--birds that could not walk, and that had long beaks, armed with sharp teeth. These birds, de- scribed in Science and Invention by Carroll Lane Fenton, department of paleontology, University of Michigan, are known from their skeletons, which have been preserved and turned into stone In the chalk beds of western Kansas. Hesperorais, the western bird, as this ancient dweller of Kansas has been called, measured nearly five feet from tip to tip of his I)eak to the tip of his toes• In shape he was a good deal like the black and white loon, or hell diver of modern rivers and lakes, but, unlike that bird, he swam by means of his legs and feet alone, never trying to use wings• Indeed, he could hardly have done 'so, for after ages of disuse, hls wings had disappeared entirely, and there re- mained but a few bones to show where they once had been• But stout legs and paddle-like feet were all he need- ed to get about, either on the surface or below. His body was shaped like a submarine, while his neck had the driv- Ing force of a heron's. Once a fish was caught in the bird's long beak with its backwardly directed teeth, it had no chance to escape. Early Americans Tied to. Coast by Need of Salt Early American settlers were tied to the coast by the need of salt, without which they could not preserve their meats and llve in comfort. Writing in 1752, Bishop Spagenburg says of a colony for which he was seeking lands In North Carolina: "They will require salt and other necessaries which they can neither manufacture nor raise. Either they must go to Charleston, which is 300 miles distant, or else go to Bollng's Point in Virginia on a branch of the James and also 300 miles from here, or else they mustgo down the Roanoke---I know not how many miles--where salt is brought up from Cape Fear." An annual pilgrimage for salt thus became essential. Taking furs and ginseng root, the early settlers sent their pack trains afte'r seeding time each year to the coast• But when dis- covery was made of the salt springs of the Kanawha and the Holston and the Kentucky and central New York, i i + - "dnd I'm,bd00nO d cake" [e/letlte won't rest-- so acatlon ith €Pearl Oil] Summer or not you keep on cook- ink and eating, so why not make it a lot easier with good oil cookstove and Pearl Oil?

"Marble cake," said the wife defi- antly. -- Pittsburgh Chronicle Tele- graph. Convicted A young fellow was engaged in a clerical c'tpacity by a friend of his father. He was, however, shiftless, md nothing he said could be relied upon. One day hls employer called• him into his private office and gave him a lecture. He dwelt chiefly on his prevarication and wound up by say- ing: "You know, James, that you are always lying." "Sir," said James, "I would have you remember that I am a gntleman." "There you go again," said his em- ployer. Kitten No Longer "Vv'hat became of that little kitten you had?" asked a visitor of a small boy. "Why, haven't you heard?" "No. Was it drowned?" "No." "Lost ?" "No." "Poisoned?" "No." "Then what did become of it?" said the visitor. "It growed up into a cat." Suspicious Jack--So your father demurred at first because he didn't want to lose you. Ethel--Yes, but I won his consent• I told him that he need not lose me; we could live with him, and so he would not only have me, but a son-in- law to boot. Jack--H'm!
