ANIMAL9 THAT LIKE MUSIC. By Taylor Edwards. The extraordinary musical sensi tiveness of spiders has frequently been attested. Every one has heard of Pellisson's spider. Consoler of the unfortunate prisoner, it perished be cause it listened too closely to the captive's violin. The gaoler saw it and crushed it brutally. Gretry, the composer, speaks of a favorite spider which descended along its thread upon his piano as soon as he played it. When giving recitals at Brussels Rubinstein saw a large spider issue from the floor of the plat form and listen to the music. He gave three concerts at the same hall and on each occasion the spider appear ed. Insects in general, though less sen sitive to music, do not object to it.

She was in charge of a brood of chicks, and the ferret was evidently after something to eat. 'Imagine,' says the narrator, 'some | rural mat.rnn ahrunt.lv confronted with a dragon or foaming tiger!
