On of the Strong and original strokes of nature was when she made the Loon. It is always refreshing to contemplate a creature so positive and characteristic. is the great diver and flyer under water. The Loon is the Genus Loci of the wild Northern lakes As solitary As they Are. Some Birds represent the majesty of nature like the eagles others its ferocity like the Hawks others its cunning like the Crow others its sweetness and Melody like the song Birds.

Presently a boat shot out from Shore and went rippling up the surface toward the loan. The creature at once seemed to divine the intentions of the Boatman and sidled off obliquely keeping a Sharp Lookout As if to make sure it was pursued. A Steamer came Down and passed Between them and when the Way was again Clear the Loon was still swimming on the surface. Presently it disappeared under the water and the Boatman pulled Sharp and hard. In a few moments the Bird reappeared some rods further on As if to make an observation. Seeing it was being pursued and no mistake it Dove quickly and when it came up again had gone Many times As far As the boat had in the same space of time. Then it Dove again and distanced its pursuer so easily that he gave Over the Chase and rested upon his oars. But the Bird made a final plunge and when it came up was Over one mile away. Its course must have been and doubtless was an actual flight under water and half As fast As the Crow flies in the air. The Loon would have delighted the old poets. Its wild Demoniac laughter Awakening its echoes on the solitary lakes and its Verity or hardiness was Kindred to those robust . Oped quite a taste for them. One fall Grandfather noticed that somebody was disturbing the walnuts the hulls of which were found in great abundance under the Trees. One night he determined to watch and about ten of clock with two of the boys went out to the Grove for that purpose. As he Drew near it was evident that somebody was at work. There was a terrible thrashing around going on and it did not take Long to locate the tree. But How can you imagine their Surprise when they looked up m that Walnut tree w Ith no Branch nearer the ground than Twenty five feet and saw old Charlie with his Tail wrapped around the to Ink of the tree reaching out with a Fence rail for the w walnuts on the ends of the branches. And he was Only a Colt then too. All they did to him for it was to take him to the barn and lock him up. Old Charlie is dead now but we never hear of a smart horse without thinking of Hawk Bye. W Eather a men m. Be v Kari or the director of the Paris Observatory has inaugurated a system of weather warnings for the Especial Benefit of agriculturists. The Experiment began May 1, in the departments of Vienne haute Vienne and Puy be dome and will be continued until oct. 1, when the results will be carefully investigated and the system improved according to the experience gained. Weather warnings for the Benefit of the French Marine have Lieen issued from the Paris Observatory for the past eighteen years but these have consisted mainly of prognostications of the Force and direction of the wind in coming storms. For the advantage of the agriculturist the approach or Rains Hail and Thunder storms must be foretold. The Points to which particular attention is directed in the present Experiment Are 1. The Progress of the rain fall with regard to Quantity and the manner in which it is propagated in the course of its movements from Canton to Canton. 2. The occurrence and course of Thunder storms. 3. The collection of data bearing upon the origin and Progress of Hail storms. 4. The a observation of late frosts and of the influence of smoke in counteracting their effects. 5. Finally the establishment of warnings relative to inundations. In the prosecution of this system of warnings it is expected that the knowledge of the meteorology of France will be greatly extended and that Many facts May be discovered of advantage to the1 science in other parts of the world facts about frs.

The two great fur Hunting grounds of the world Are Russia with Asiatic dependent Dies and that immense Traeff country in North America from which so Many of our furs Are procured. The most aristocratic of the different varies of fur Are supplied by Northern Europe and Siberia the russian Sable taking the Lead though in a it award value and merits Are closely approximated by the sea Otter and one or two other of the rarer species of the Fox. Tie russian Sable is distinguished from its american rival by the length and fullness of its fur which i soft and Glossy and much Darker in color. The skins Are very expensive and As four or five Are used in the construction of an Ordinary sized Muff the Price is too High for general indulgence. Even the minute coverings of the paws Are esteemed of sufficient value to be joined together for linings. The potion of fur lying under the jaw which is lighter in tint than the other parts is United to similar pieces and is known under the name of Sable Gills. About 25,000 skins Are annually collected in the russian territory. For some v Californi plums. Nothing knocks his Ager so Quick As plums.

The smallest Church in England Westdale a Little Parish in England has the smallest Church in that country and it is a very diminutive affair. It Lias but eight pews and yet is capable of accommodating double the population of the District. The Rector opens the Church himself and rings the Bell. Then he dons his ecclesiastical Robes in the presence of his congregation. There is no musical instrument in the Church and the minister leads the singing. His sermons Are very Short a recent one occupying Only seven and a half minutes in its delivery. Two services Are held every sunday and this Rector clerk preceptor Sexton Bell ringer and Church Warden All combined in one receives for the performance of his varied duties the modest Little salary of about $300. In comparison with this item of salary the income of Tho Bishop of Rochester who has just been appointed to the new see of St. Albats looks mountainous. It will amount to $80,000. A smart horse. Thomas Bell the Bose grocer of Fairfield owns a horse that is entitled to the Blue ribbon. is something like Twenty years old and was for Many years employed by the express company at Fairfield. A gentleman in this City who recently spent a few Days with or. Bell tells the following among other remarkable evidences of sagacity Given by this Equine and says the Story is Well vouched for. The horse was left standing As usual one Day after having cast a shoe. was never tied being perfectly trustworthy. After standing a Short time he deliberately walked away with the Wagon to the Blacksmith shop and there he remained stamping with Nis shoeless foot and holding it up in such a significant Way that his desire to be shod was quite Plain. The Blacksmith thought perhaps he had been driven there and left to be shod and put on a shoe for him when the horse walked Back to his place and stood As was his custom. This is undoubtedly very wonderful for a horse hut it is nothing to a horse our Grandfather had when he lived on a farm. That horse was so smart that he used to Send him to school with an Uncle of ours because if Doc. Went to school the horse remained with him until night but if Doc. Went off into the Woods old it arise would break his Halter and go Home and Grandfather always knew whether Doc. Waa playing hookey or not. But that was t anything. Grandfather had a Walnut Grove to his place that he prize Vry highly and every fall he gathered in Tbs nuts regularly. Die boys used to feed the up smell to old Charlie and he of a i the same generic name. Of these the Hudson Bay Sable ranks highest As it is an excellent fur the Superior qualities being scarcely inferior in intrinsic Beauty to the russian. The color however is always some degrees lighter and consequently the Art of the Dyer is required to adapt them to the Standard of Beauty. To the same family belong the Baum or Pine Marten always found in the Depths of some extensive Forest Remote from the habitations of men and the Stone Marten so called from its selecting Rocky places for its favorite haunts. Both Are denizens of Europe. The skin of the former species is Brown the Throat alone being yellow that of the latter presents several shades of bluish Gray being generally assimilated to the color of the rocks amongst which it is found the Throat however is pure White. The fur of either is soft and Good and May be dyed with advantage. The French Excel especially in the preparation of the Stone Marten which is often known by the name of French Sable in consequence. It is much colder in tint than its rival the Pine Marten which in the manufactured state closely approximates the finest Sable. Among the inferior representatives of this family May be included the Fisher a North american animal larger than the Sable with Long full fur the Mink and the Kolinsky or tartar Sable which is occasionally made up in the natural state. The Ermine is Peculiar to Northern Europe and Siberia. This Little animal is always hunted in the Winter when its coat is of a snowy Hue. At other periods of the year it is a Dull Brown and closely resembles the common weasel of this country. The Miniver is simply the White Ermine studded with Small Black Tufts taken from the Paw of the Astracan Lamb. Scarcely less attractive than the Ermine and about equal to it in value is the Grebe a fur or rather Down taken from the breast of a Duck which inhabits the Swiss lakes. During the past few years and especially last season the Grebe has advanced in favor. This Glossy skin ranges in color from creamy White to Silver Gray and is highly prize on account of its durability. The Chinchilla is indigenous to South America the Best Scimens coming from Buenos Ayres. Is fur which has been popular throughout Europe for Many years is now much admired and largely in demand in this country. Of the Fox tribe the Black and Silver Fox skins from the Arctic regions Are very precious and wonderfully expensive. As a Superior lining fur these two styles Are inestimable. The Cross red White and Blue foxes Are Lew rare and consequently they Are not so expensive. There has been considerable discussion regarding the degree of relationship existing Between these differently coloured foxes. They have been generally regarded As distinct species though Many old trappers have assorted that the same litter will afford furs of three distinctive colors the animals also being positively different in character. The men who trap and otherwise procure the several varieties of expensive fur bearing animals Lead lives Replete with the severest hardships and the wildest kind of adventures while those who enjoy the pleasure of wearing the beautifully prepared furs Are usually surrounded by the most enjoyable comforts of hat Cap and fur Trade review.
