a feeling of being rushed or evidence that penguins pinions were once used for swimming ornithological puzzles Are the pen Guins with their curiously shaped wings and Odd a Birdlike upright Carriage the peculiarities of their wings suggest that the penguins Are descend ants of Birds which used their wings rather than legs in the Pursuit of prey under water and As the struggle intensified Between the competing individuals the most expert at this sort of swimming would get the most food and oust less successful rivals the winners gained advantage Over their neighbors in proportion As their wings improved As swimming organs and inversely and of necessity became less suited to perform the work of Light in All other Birds the feathers though shed annually arc More or less gradually displaced but in the penguins the new feathers All Start into being at the same time and thrust out the old feathers upon heir tips so that these Cote away in great flakes whereas in All Birds save penguins clip new feathers As they thrust their Way through the skin end in Pencil like Points formed by investing sheaths in the pen ruins these sheaths Are open at the tips and attached by their rims to the roots of the old feathers and hence these Are held to their Succes sors until they have attained a sufficient length to insure Protection against cold the curious device for retaining the warmth afforded by the old feathers until the new generation can till their places is apparently due to the fact that penguins Are natives of the ant Arctic regions although some now in habit tropical

London publishers they will Tell you that no Book Sells so Well As a detective Story and that peo ple still find a fascination in the achievements of Edgar Allan poes Dupin Gaboriau Lecocq and cabaret and the redoubtable sergeant cult of Wilkie Collins these men were the forerunners of Sherlock Holmes and their feats of criminal tracking were As remarkable As those achieved by the famous Char Acter created by sir Arthur Conan Doyle perhaps the least known is cuff who figures in the Moonstone guff looked for Clews in trifles investigating a smear on a newly painted door he was told by the superintendent who had the Case in hand that it was made by the petticoats of the women servants the said petticoats were Grilies in All my experience along the dirtiest ways of this dirty Little world replied cuff i have never met such a thing As a i ride yet we must see the Petticoat i hat made the smear and we in isl know for certain that the paint was it Lecocq the Beau Ideal of the French detective was wont to explain his deductions to assistants just As Sherlock Holmes did to his Friend Watson in the Story of file a Safe has been robbed there is a scratch on the door of lie Safe which seems to have been made by the key slipping from the lock put Lecocq explained that the paint was hard and that the scratch could not have made by the trembling hand of the thief let Tonj the key slip he therefore had an Iron Box made painted with Green varnish like the Safe As Lecocq inserted the key he asked the assistant of Endeavor to pre vent him using the key just As he i about to insert it in the lock the assistant did so and the key held by Lecocq pulled aside from the lock slipped along the door and traced upon it a Diagonal scratch from top to Bot Tom the exact reproduction of the one shown in a photograph of the Safe thus it was proved that two persons were present at the robbery one wished to take the Money and the other to prevent its being taken in the play Sherlock Holmes the detective with the Aid of an accomplice raises air alarm of lire at the House of the Larrabee during the excitement of which he is Able to investigate the mystery of the purloined documents a somewhat similar incident occurs in Edmir Allan the purloined letter a Neil Nipin having on Friea Entrance to the House of a minister of the state who had purloined a Fer of great importance from a lady wished to like ii from its hiding place a card rack Over the and substitute a facsimile while Dupius was talk intr of the minister there was a sudden report of a pistol beneath the winding followed by fear Ful screams and loud shouting the minister rushed to the window and while his Atie lion was thus distracted Dupin took the real letter and substituted the false one which he had pro pared needless to say the diversion had been created by Dupins assist ants although the adventures of Sher lock overshadow the stories of other detectives which i appeared in Hie strand Magazine one should not forget to mention Martin Hewitt investigator and Dick Don Ovan both these detectives worked Aloizs and were past masters in the Art of solving robbery Tysl erics murders and the crimes of secret societies and the value of noting trifles particularly in detective work is strikingly illustrated in the Case of or fog Tratt the latter had been Murde Ivd in his chamber which was situated at
