Innocence of Kitt. ns.
An English naturalist has raised
the question whether kittens are born
with a propensity to eatmice. Three
Manx kittens kept in a cage for six
werks with a mouse, which was Intro-
duced when they were live months
old, made no attempt to injure it, al-
though they were hungry, until the
mother cat was Introduced and
showed how mice should be treated.
More tan one observer has noted the
indisposition of kittens to attack
mice, but the question whether
mouse-killing is instinctive or educa-
tional with them is not yet settled.

Verlaine's First Book
A letter fished out of the collection
of an autograph hunter reveals the
occasion on which Verlaine's work
first attracted the attention of a critic.
It was written In 1867 by Eugene
Vermersch to the editor of an ephe-
meral review entitled L'Esprlt Nou-
veau. and It runs as follow:
"My Dear Editor.—I owe you every
apology for not responding sooner to
your kind invitation to contribute to

ALL ARE BENEFITED
A young man upon being asked why he did not open a bank
account said: "Oh, banks are for rich people." "No," said his advisor,
"it is quite the reverse. It is true that the banks help the weaithy
man because without them he could not handle his money, but they
help the poor man to make and save his money. His meagre deposits,
made while he is at the foot of the ladder, are safely preserved for
him. After he has shown himself to be a saver and has established
himself at the bank, they loan him money with which to make more
money. The bank helps the wealthy man take care of his money,
but it helps the poor man MAKE his."
