Old Asii llrirl<'n. a fihlicrman and j hunt,ur, living near the inoutli of Allo- j wav's creek, Snlein county, X- •'•. lost a pet fi.-.h liaivk a. little; inoru than a J yu;ir iifTO tlurt he liad Imd in captivity j for three years. 'J'lio bird was a big j follow, and it never seemed to lake j kindly 10 Asa, who, on account of its | vicious nature, kept it lied up in the ( woodshed. A strong 1 rope fastened j around the bird's log held ii securely to it riii^ 1 i" f 'hc wall. The old bnildinjr was infestod with rats, and n stronff friendship ffrevv up between the rodents and the "captive bird. Whenever Mollon broiiffht up a fish from the erf-elf to feed the hawk the rats would come out ami joiu in the feast. This condition of things in Asa's woodshed pleased the old fellow, and he did all lie could to help ii along. When he went out to the shed one morning the hawk was missing. The rope ovideutly had been gnawed, in two by the rats, aud tlie hawk had walked out of the door and disappeared. Holton was incrmsuhtble over theloss of his pet, and he lived in the hope that it would return some day, bat weeks went by and nothing was seen o£ the hawk. Asa got. oui of bod earlier than usual one morning, and noticing a large number of hawks circling about over the pines back of the house, he took his gun and went over t,o get a shot nt them, lie had hardly got outside the yard, when, to his astonishment, the missing pet hawk flew screaming at iiirn from tho top of a neighboring tree, llulton knew it was his fortuercaptive, for a. fragment of rope fluttered from iCs leg. The old bird swooped so close to lloltcu's head that he only escaped being .struck by quickly dodging. The hawk rose in the air, and joining the others, led them oft' in the direction of the mouth of the creek. For several weeks Holton employed every artifice to retake the hawk, but the wily bird evaded him. Holton noticed that every night the hawks came from the creek, and after circling around in the air over the pines for awhile, settled among them and in the morning they left together, and in their coming and going they were headed by the old pet hawk. Asa made it a point to go to the pines twice a week and leave a lot of fish which were devoured by the birds. The «olony of hawks increased and now thousands of them roost in the pines every night. A little while before dark they come in from the water and hover over the pines, .screaming and whistling. The old pet hawk appears to be the leader of them, for they stay in the uir until that bird starts for the pines, then they all drop down and go to voost. Ten minutes after the last hawk has disappeared in the foliage of the trees it is as quiet as if no birds were there. A hunter invaded the roost one night recently for the purpose of having 1 some sport with the birds. He fived a shot into the branches of a tree and in less than a minute hu was knocked flat by an avalanche oi hawks that rushed upon him screaming like mad. The hunter fought tho birds desperately and finally managed to make his escape, but his clothes and flesh showed signs of the rough handling he had received.—N. Y. Herald.

The young man's countenance wore the professional stereotyped look of courteous persistence as he again remarked through his delicately-trained imistiuche: "It i.s perfect." "It i.s no more like it than anything at all," replied the lady, as much to herself as to the young man. and as she said it there was an air of superiority in her face and manner which betokened a self-poise which was not to be disturbed. "Anyone with half nn eye could see Unit," put in another lady with a toss of the head, as she paused for a moment in passing. The young man glared at the interloper, taking care, however, that nobody could see it but his confederates, lint he quickly ironed out his visage and sweetly suggested- that it was the "light." It is always the "light" with. the class to which this young man belonged. "Just like a man," the interloper remarked, as she moved away. "It is as ruu'jh like it as cheese is like chalk." The first lady looked very weary. It was evident that she had toiled long and unsuccessfully. She tried to con vinee herself'that the young man was right, lint no; she shook her heac more in sorrow than in anger as she murmured dejectedly: "Not a bi' like it." The 3'oung man appealed to his con federates. The young woman with pompadour hair declared with a "LTm," sniffed out spitefully. "Any fool could SRC it was a perfect match." Another young woman left off admiring her rings long enough to say, "Of course it is." A young man with hyacinthe lock smiled as he whispered something about "hens" to a gigantic creature with fluffy hair. The lady was not convinced by this cloud of opposing witnesses. She kept her eyes strickly bent on business. Suddenly she made a dice. "There!" she exclaimed. "That's it. Strange you didn't show me this in stead of the other." "Mem," replied the young man noth ing abashed, "I was trying to show you that all the time." ^ "Sure!" interjected young Hyacinthe; exchanging supercilious glances with the giggling creature with fluffy hair. "Of course," chorused Pompadour and the young person enamored of her jewelry. The young lady paid no-attention to these utterances. "Give me ten yards." This was all she said.

Cincinnati Branch, Seventh and Freeman Avenue, Cincinnati, That there is 110 need whatever for a person to be weak, tired and nervous—the three great curses oj our people—seems now a certain fact. Eminent physicians affirm the truth of this welcome news, and ample proofs demonstrate the reliability of the information we are able so gladly to give. Ic is certainly a godsend to those of ou'r people who have weak nerve and tired bodies, who feel exhausted in strength * nd vitality, who Cdnnot eat or sleep well, aud who are run down aud debilitated, to know positively that Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy is a sure invigorator and strength giver, and will invariably make a person strong and well. Particularly is it a blessing at this time of year, for in the spring almost everybody feels languid, nervous and our, of order and needs this best of all spring medicines. Doctors are enthusiastic in their approval and endorsement of this remedy. They heai tily jecomuiend and advise its are, and many of our best known physicians are loud in. their praise of its wonderful curative powers. Dr. B. D. Bickford, of Wolcott, Vt, one of Vermont's eminent physicians, states: "I have used Dr. Greene's Nervu- ra blood and nerve remedy for some time, first trying it on myself, and I found it did me so much good that I now recommend it to my patients The fact that I have used it in ujy own case sho »s that I know what I am talking about. As a tonic and in?ii*orant it is the best of all to build up a person." Dr. Hubert W. Lance, of South Woodbury, Vt., than whom there is no more eminent physician in the Stat8 of Vermont, says: "I have known about Dr. Greene's > T ervura blood and nerve remedy and the good results in cases, as a tonic, after hard sickness and the cure of nervous females. They have received great-good .from its us?. I do not hesitate to recommend its use. I do not hesitate to recommend it." Dr. Willard H. Morse, F. B. 8. Sc., of Wostiield, N. J., tb* great expert on medicines, says of this grand dis- cjveryofDr Greene: "The true remedy for nervous diseases is Dr. Greene's yervura blood and nerve remedy. It acts by affecting the organs of nutrition, aud entering into the formation of nerve tissue, which generates nerve force. Tins means the making of new nerves. Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and Nerve remedy is the American nerve tonic." The well-known Dr. Emil Neuuier, superintending physician of the JJ. Y. Lodge and Association Hospital states: "We ore using Dr. Greene's Ner- vura blood and nerve remedy at this Hospital for our patients, with good success." This enthusiastic endorsement by physicians, stamps this remarkable medical discovery as the • greatest tonic and restorative. Druggist tell you everywhere that it cures more cases than any other known remedy. In fact it makes all who take it strong and well. Oue reason which gives the people so much confidence in it is the fact that it is the discovery and pre- jcription of Dr. Greene, of 35 West 14th street, New York City, the well- known and probably mo.-t successful specialist in curing nervous and chronic diseases, and to the further fact that he can be consulted free of charge by anyone, personally or by letter. Tho Occan't* Salt. The Pythagoreans held that the sea was salt by reason of the tears shed by Kronos, father of Zpns. According to tho old Hebraic tradition the ocean Was originally a great body of fresh •water, but which was made salt by the abundant toajs of the fallen angels. One sect of Buddhists believe that Lot's wife (that is to ssy the ''pillar of salt" which was oncfc tie wife of fhe humble gentleman named above) lies at the bottom of the ocean in a certain narrow strait, and that once each year the waters of all oceans flow through that narrow channel. The Talmndic writers say that it was never salt until Moses wept repentance after breaking the tables of stone. .
