A STORY OF THE SEA. The Man Who Braved the Storm and the Sailor He Rescued. ' Off the Ireland there was a terrible storm, nnd a crowd gathered on the .shore to see a storm tossed ves- nel not far away being pounded on the rocks. Sturdy men launched n boat find pulled away at the oars to rescue tt Imperiled ones. As the boat came back the watchers on tho Hhoro cried, "IMd you got. them?" and they answered: "All but one. We had to leave him or rink the lives of all." And when they were landed 'a stalwart fellow stopped from the group and mild, "Who will Join me In tho rescue of the remaining one?" Then an aged woman cried out: "Oh. my son, dcn't go; don't ?;o! You are all I have left. Your father %vn-< drowiifd tit fi-a. and your brother William Hailed away, and wo never heard I'ro.u him. and now If you are lost I will hi' left l:i sorrow alone." Hut; the man replied: "f mu«t go, mo!:!;cr. Duty calls me." Then he uud other Imive hearts laiineliuil the boat and pulled for the wreck. Anxiously the mother waited In tears and prayers. At last they saw the lifeboat coming nearer and nearer, anil wher 1 It was In hailing distance they called, "Have you got your man?" And the answer rung out clear above the storm, "Yes, nnd tell mother It's brotlifr William!" Nests of the Golden Eagle. Every pair of engles whose habits I have had an opportunity of watching over a period of a few years would seem to have Invariably at least two alternative sites for their nosts. SOUHJ have three, and I know of one with four sites. In fact, I only know of ono pulr out of many which habitually resort to but one place and only one. Tlio reason for this Is, however, apparent, for owing to Its situation it has never been disturbed.
