This, no doubt, may be all very well for the nondescript "tabbies' and "blacks" which inhabit the majo rity .of homos, but it is a most disas trous treatment for all the beautiful highly bred creatures who are gradu ally ousting the 'common cat from aris tocratic houses. Once one has felt the artistic delight of owning a lovely blue, smoke, white, or other Persian, it Is almost impossible to be satisfied again with the ordinary short-haired mon ^There is a general impression that all pure-bred cats are c-xtremely delicate. This wrong idea is due to the fact thnt so many people arc entirely ignorant as to the proper methods of feeding and Ijeeping cats generally.

He can live in the water as well as out of it, ami cau seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. He is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he hap the characteristics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite supertlouous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. ;The baby turtle seems also just as Indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. H has no one to teach or guide it. In its brain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it bas no defence against hungry fish, and so it seoks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the time it weighs ...
