NATURALIST. ROOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 October 1898
lAVDBAUB*. BOOKS. Most wild birds are noticeable for their .peculiar habits, but rooks partióalarly so. They will not allow a 'strange "pair to build in their trees, but drive them off with relent- less beak, tearing down tho half-formed nest, and taking the materials to their own uso. The birds intermarry generation after generation ; and, if a blaoh; lover brings home a foreign bride, they are foroed to build in a tree at some distance. Near large rookeries several suoh outlying colonies may be seen.

THE LINNET. One of tbe commonest of native British flnohed, and one i-f tho most popuUr, ia the linnet.

It is, withal euch a sweet songster and beoomea so tame and companionable, adapting itself so readily to confinement, that there ÍB' every reason for ita being such a general favourite.

In its wild state tho linnet has two nests in a season, the eggs numbering from four to six. Tho best way to obtain one of those birds is to rear it from tho nest.

ARE HORSES OVERWORKED? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 October 1898
ARB HORSES OVERWORKED t '> What constitutes a good day's journey for a. horse is a point whioh is frequently argued. A well-known raoing man staked his reputation aa a judge pf horfleflesh on the! statement that the regular daily journey of a horse should not exceed twolvo or thirteen miles. Thia is aa long a distance HS a horse can, safely accomplish, if his work is daily, and his condition ia to bo maintained. Where Bpeed ÍB roquired, Btage horses may be regarded as having doao a reaaonablo amount of work if thoy regularly aooomplish ten hours a day at high procure. If time bo an object, a horse oan got over a groater diatanoo without unduo fatiguo ; whilst, on occasion, a good horse can cover fifty or aven sixty milos a day. Horses have boen driven eighty milos in tho day, but such exertions knook the Hf« out of an animal very quiokly. In fixing tho regular day's journey, the condition of tho road, tho stamina of tho homo, and tho weight of tho lo'id ought to bo borno in wind....

A PASSPORT. A. Bpecial correspondent got into diffi- culties one« while crossing the Republican Hues in Spain.

The counsel kept on with his speeoh, and presently saw that hiß opportunity had come. It was a hot day, and a ray of sun- light had penetrated a orevioe of the curtain, and was shining upon the top of tho head of this juryman, who was quite bald. The lawyer pauned in hin argument, and ad- dressed himself directly to the Court. * If your honour would please,' he said, * to order that the curtain in yonder window be lowered a trifle, I am sure that the sixth juryman would appreciate it.'

'AN' IT PLEASE THE PIGS.' [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 October 1898
.AN' IT PLEASE ÍHE PIGS.' Little we imagine what we ate saying when we invoke this proverb, whioh is, according to Home, a mere variant of the old Roman Catholic ejaculation 4 An it please tho pix,' i.e., tho casket in whioh priests carry tho Host. But thero is fortunately another explanation. In bluff Hal'H reign thero were two rival soboola in London : (St. Paul's, founded by King Stephen, and Sr.. Anthony's. tHtablishod by Houry III., iu tho neighbourhood of the . present Bank ot' England. Tho latter sohool shone conspicuously in tho learnod dis- putations of tho day, and earnod the animosity of St. Paul'a acholara. Now it ia known to all that St. Anthony prcaohod to to the pigs, and was always roproaontod with a pig in attimdauoo. Honoo tho boys of St. Paul's ninknauiod their rivals ' St. Anthony's pig"/ °nd tho oontagion of thia oant phase assumed itu pronont signification.

NOVEL. The Chapel of Ease CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 October 1898
NO VICK The Chapel of Ease By Harriet Riddle Davis. CHAPTER IV The? few days immediately snooeeding Hester's;, return home were rather uncom- fortable. A half-suppressed excitement pervaded /Chapel House, beginning with Caroline Jenifer and extending even to Jasper,; and the dog. Eaoh one felt uncer- tain of thejfuture, and no one more so than Hester herself. She wandered restlessly all over the place, visiting each well-remem- bered fcpot, recalling her childhood and girl- hood, and trying to identify herself onoo more with her home. She spent many a wretched moment in the little burial-ground which lay upon the crest of the highest ground on the plantation, overlooking the house and grounds. Hore waa buried a long line of Jenifers, and hero under a wide spreading oak tree were the graves of her father and mother. Everything waa un- kempt and forlorn. Only a wooden head- board marked her mother's grave, with nothing but her name in rough, black lettering upon it, and a little apart...

I A TURN AT THE TUB. "WHAT a trivial thing will colour the whole of a man's life ! How small «n in- cident, compared to the large futuro ho has mapped out for himself, may make JC mar it ! T learned all this, aud more, one sulcry May day in Mexico, five yeura ago. I had been sent to Mexico as ohiof of a surveying corps, to establish the boundaries of the Santa i^nita grant, whioh lay along the Rio Claro, just outside the city of Chihuahua. It was a responsible position for a young man, and I hold my head high. It was the day of La fiesta de San Guadalupe. The saint himself had been dead, I understood, several hundred years, but in Mexico that doesn't make any dif- ference ; the longer folks are dead there, the more they seem to be thought of, and the bigger a birthday-party they have. I have known them-«men in my own employ-to be so enthusiastic over the posthumous birthday of some long dead saint that they . would get up in tho arrey dawn to go about celebrating it.
