The oldest, family in .the "British Isles is the Mai- 'family, of Scotland, 1003. The Campbells, of 'Argyll, begun in 1100, the Tulleynuul dates from 1101), Bismarck.from 1270. the Grosvenorfani- ily, the dtrkcs of Westminster, 10(iO; the Austrian house, of Hiipsburg goes back to 952. and the house of llotirbou to S04. The dcscendunts of Mohammed, born 570, nre all registered carefully and authoritatively, in a book, kept In Mecca by tlio chief of the family. Little or no doubt exists of the nbsolut" authenticity of the long line of MohiHii- meJVdcsce"mlnnts. • In China there are many old families; also among the Hebrews, "but,".saysnn niithority, "when it comes to pedigrees there is one gentleman to whom the world must tnlce off Its hat, not as facile princops or primus Inter pares, but as the. great iincl-ooly nonesuch.

The first, one-was contemporary with Xeb'ichad- ncxzar, GGO years before Christ. Of the seven great religions enumerated by Max Miiller as possessing Bibles the mikado family is older than five. ^ Since we all have the consolation of knowing- that we nre ilesecndants from the first family., it makes no difference i f sonic of t he early records arc lost, except so fur as they relate to recent property titles.—Pittsburgh Dispatch, Uow Finn Wire 1» Aliula. The finest wire in the country is made at Taunton, Mass. This metal cobweb of minute diameter is exactly the 1-500th part of a,n inch in thickness—much finer than human hair.

An eight-foot femitlc-cougar until a few days ago had been committing depredations near Toll, \Vasb., and her ravages became unbearable when she lulled four calves and a colt in a single week.

There was prrent music when the dogs stJ-uek tbe trail, and the wood.s resoimdi'd with their cries when they ha<! once opened up.. Away they went, like racers upon the course, their noses close to the ground nnd their agile- bodies speeding along- in the ecstasy of the chase. The pack swept out of sight, and in a. few seconds the cry changed, and Ames knew they had sighted the cougar. Then 1)hore was terrific outcry of the hounds as they closed in with their fierce antagonist. Ames hurried .forward, nnd as he canprht si^'.it of the cougar at bay, and savagely strikhipf her claws at the dog-s, the beast sprang into an adjoining tree. The hunter's rifle was leveled in an instant, and a second after' he pulled trigger the gaunt, tawny body slid clown the tree trunk and back into the midst of th'e waiting pack. Wntc.hinp his opportunity, Ames sent a. bullet through the cougtur's brain, nnd she fell dead. ,An examination of tbe carcass showed that tbe first shot had entered far along the back, ranging up the spinal column.
