A Rural Reader
In 'reply to the above communica
ti on recieved in our Monday's mail,
we take it in good faith, that we
have recieved a noteworthy bit of
information in the interpretation of
the habit and life of the quail, from
this rural reader. However, we are
unable from the signature, to know
exactly who to thank. Our stibscrip
tion list on this particular route is
too extensive to allow us a kuess. Our
knw'edge of the feathered trib"s
is limited and we confess its limit
being knowledge of a quail when
we see one. The Call of the Quail
hus not been of such volume as to
attract our attention. However we
stand ready and willing to receive
such information and we thank our
rural reader, who ever lie may I

The composition was one of the best,
not measured by the truthfulness
of the statements it contained, but
from a grammatical standpoint, and
we do not hesitate to say that it was

Of the national sport ot bull fight-
ing all that Is good and all that Is bad
has been said before, and we will
merely remark ihat It Is practiced not
enly by the professional toreadors, but
also by amateurs at the becerradas, In
which the bulls used are young and
almost hurmleB, a writer In the Lon-
don Times says. Hut the rearing of
fighting bulls tn tho gauadertas gives
rise to operations which, while lack-
ing the sanguinary aspect of the cor-
ridas, are full of Interesting sport.
Such are the enoierro. In which the
bull Is led away hemmed In by j
eabestros or belled oxen; the acoao
y derribo, which consists of driving
the bull Into a corner aud throwing
him down In order to .brand him, a
feat performed either on horseback
and with the goad, as tn Audalusla,
or by awaiting the onset of the beast,
seizing him by the horns and twist-
ing his neck, as la done by the peas-
ants of Salamanca, who for this pur-
pose wear a leather culraBS round the
body; and the tleuta, In which the
pugnacity of the bull Is put to the
trial by means of a mock corrida.
The Andaluslana are adepts at pig-
sticking and the king himself has
taken part In this exhilarating sport
on the ltonana estate at the mouth
of the Guadalquivir, the best district
for game In all Europe.
The true national sport of Spain Is
pelota, which originated In the Flasque
country, but Ir played In all the prin-
cipal towns of the peninsula and In
some places abroad. The game con-
sists of hitting a ball against the walls
of a fronton, which has one or two
parallel courts and sometimes a lat-
eral one. and is played between two
teams of two players each, one stand
Ing In front and one behind. The ball
is hit either with the cesta, a sort of
elongated and curved wickerwork
glove, or with the flat pala (bat) or
with 'lie hand alone The scoring Is
by points, each fault committed by
one side -such as a dropped ball or a
hall sent out of the court—counting
for the other side The extraordinary
agility and suppleness of the players
and the sustained excitement of the
play make pelota a most Interesting
game to watch, especially In the
Basque country, where It Is played
In the open air, sometimes agalnBt the
walls of the village church, aud by
children of quite a tender age.
In the Canary Islands favorite
sport is wrestling of a kind very sim-
ilar to that practiced by the montag
nards of Switzerland. A curious game
In the Balearet Is hurling with the
sling a weapon with which the na
tives, who are said to have Invented
It, were familiar In ancient times. The
women of the Tarragona district run
races with cantaros (pitchers) bal-
anced on their heads, and in La Gom-
era island (Canaries) the inhabitants
display wonderful skill in communi-
cating with each other by means of
whistling, which they have made
veritable medium of speech.

MADE OF SAND AND CEMENT
New Proce*6 for Manufacturing Brick
Is Being Kept a Secret by
A process for making building brick
of sand and cement only has been de-
veloped, and brick of this kind are
being placed on the market Any kiud
of clean sand may be used. The secret
of the process lies In the use of a ce-
ment which is mixed with the sand and
which Is made from glass sand by a
process of melting, cooling, pulverlz-
lug, and treatment In a digester About
30 gallons of this cement is sufficient
for making 1,000 brick when mixed
with ordinary river sand, sea sand or
bank sand, and the Band may be either
wet or dry. After being mixed, the
material Is formed Into brick In presses
and is theu dried under a temperature
of 600 degrees Farenhelt. One of the
advantages of the process Is that the
brick may be made complete within
ti period of 12 hours. Various colors
may be obtained by adding oxides and
mineral coloring to the material when
mixing Tests on brick made by this
process show ail average compressive
strength of 6,000 pounds to the square

Asphalt-paper pipes. ' which are

have been Introduced in Austria The
tubes are made of an especially pre-
pared asphalt paper of German manu-
facture, and are exceedingly light In
weight as compared with piping of
other materials. They were originally
made for electric-cable conduits, but It
has been found that they may be used
fry- varied purposes, replacing Iron,
uteel and clay pipes excepting as con
veyors of hot fluids, strong acids or
petroleum products. One of their ad
vantages Is that stray currents of
