Women always have "the worat of

with BUI Sykes, or like Augusta Vic*

with the kalBer In his palace.
Women share equally the misfor-
tunes, and feel the pain more keen-

Augusta Victoria T>ore the long

A hundred other peoples havf* t-

yoke. The Irish never settled down
—still Insisting "we will be free."
The Irish blood is the blood of the
fair-haired Celts that said to Alex-
ander, who expected a compliment,
"we fear nothing except that the sky
may fall on us." They belong to the
race that once fought all through
the mountains and valleys, from the
Dardanelles to the English Channel.
On the island of Ireland, separated
from invasion and contamination by
the channel, the Celtic race has re-
tained its original fighting quality.

Professor Shaw. In Colorado, to
prove that angle worms are good to
eat. ate a handful of tbem fried in
butter, much to the edification of
the high school class In biology.
The learned professor probably
told the young ladies atlri gentlemen
that among many peoples, certain of
the American tribes, for Instance,
worms, grasshoppers, mice, snakes,
even clay, formed the principal diet.
But. luckily for those school children
and that professor, their ancestors
were all cannibals. They hunted and
ate the inferior insect-eating tribes,
thus they always had fresh meat in
the house, fed the children well and
developed the strong races that now
rule. We all owe much to ancestral
doings that would shock us now.
The little state of Connecticut has.
within a year, absorbed twenty-five
thousand immigrants, mainly from
southern Europe. This gives you an
idea of the Influx from abroa l that
is to have most important effects on
this country.
Those twenty-five thousand immi-
grants in Connecticut will take all
that they eat and wear and the
houses in which they live, right out
of the stony soil of Connecticut. That
soil the native-born, long ago, pro-
nounced not worth cultivating.

MeetiMr—
Dicky stood verf quietly, half-hid-
den among the bushes. He could
have shouted, since, with all the
noise about him, his voice could
never have been heard.
Wonder what in the world is go-
inn on!" he mused, as fifty or sixty
black crows circled round and round
a pine tree where another flock of
crows kept up r. great clattering
noise. "I wish—"
But before Dicky could speak his
wish Squeedee, himself, tumbled out
of the bushes.
"Save your breath, Dicky, here I
am." he laughed merrily. "I've been
wondering what the racket was
about, myself. Let's go and see

could make himself heard.
"Look. Jook!" screamed an excited
old black crftw. "See that imposter?
He has come to steal!" He pointed
with the tip of one of his black
wings at a funny, wild-eyed owl
leaning Hgainst the trunk of the pine
tree^ blinking his great, big eyes
sorrowfully.

screamed one crow, and the din wuh
started again. Every crow in that
flock tried to see who could scream
the loudest at the frightened owl.
"But what has he done that you
should yell at him so?" asked Squee-
dee of the leader of the group.
"Has he committeed some crime?
"Indeed I have not," snapped
Funny Faced Owl, "unless falling to
sleep in this tree is a misde-
meanor."
"Don't believe him!" screamed an
old crow. "He's a thief, he's a
