Tne skin o

neck is thick and extrei
the red-brown skin hangs loosely on
the ponderous trunk and the short
leet terminate in broad Un like pad-
dies resembling large flaps of leather.
Its movements ou land are very
slew and awkward but in the water
it has all the activity of seals and
even surpasses them In speed. It
cannot remain under water for any
length of time being compelled to
come to the surface for air. At such
times a cloud of dense vapor Is emit-
ted from the nostrils and forms an
..y means by which hunters may fol-
low a pursued animal.
Like the seals the walrus are ex-
ceedingly gregarious and love to lie
on the ice or on the beaches closely
huddled together. When dosing on
shore the herd is easily approached
trotn the leeward but as their scent
is remarkably keen attempts to get
within close range from a windward
position are almost certain to result
in amusing them and causing a
stampede to be made for the water.
The appearance of the uncouth ani-
mals at such a time is ludicrous in
the extreme as in their anxiety to
reach the water they will roll over
and over each other in the wildest
confusion. Native hunters assert
that the walrus herd is never left
witiiout a guardian on the outlook.
This member of the herd holds hlrn-
s If as nearly ect as possible with
head up aud e;.- ears and nostrils
open and alert for danger His posi
tion is so taken that should he be
overcome with drowsiness and allow
his head to drop his tusks will sharply
prick his sleeping neighbor and cause
that animal to stir himself and re-
lieve the watch.
The tender solicitude of a mother
for her young is in few casesgreatcr
than that shown by the walrus. Fre-
quent instances are known where a
female walrus has fearlessly placed
herself between a young calf and dan-
ger even receiving spear wounds or
shots from guns aimed at the calf.
This strong trait is so well known
that the natives frequently capture a
young calf and tame it to be used as
a means of attracting older animals
within reach of their si ears When
swimming in company with her calf
the little one is usually from one to
two feet directly In front of the
mother who at the ttrst sign of dan-
ger places her tusks back of the calf's
neck and bears it down beneath the
surface of the water. The young
walrus is sometimes carried under
the forearm or flipper of the mother
while swimming on the surface. The
affection of the mother walrus for its
voung is however not reciprocal as
the calves of those captured will fol-
low the walrus that escape when an
attack is made on the herd.
l tie nowung or jaguars in some
parts of the South American forests Is
a wild and terrible chorus and one
which might well alarm the timid.
One traveler the author of 'Travels

Thus is formed a "screw" somewhat
resembling that of a steam vessel
but having a much larger number of
blades. It is capable of giving vastly
more power and has a much higher
efficiency than the old mill though
for a stated power much smaller and
lighter and more "business-like" in

In the Kennebec Valley or toward
that way thero lives a gentleman of
the old school In a handsome home-
stead that stands a mile or more from
the nearest village and railroad sta-
tion. This gentleman is of a con-
v i val turn of mind and for a long
time found it necessary to goto Port-
land at frequent intervals some-
times two or three limes a week.
From every one of these journeys he
returned on the latest train that he
could get and this was one that in-
variably landed him at his station as
late as 1 1 o'cloi-k.
As he was not in the least in a con-
dition to walk home it was necessary
every night for the lo:-al Uvcry stable
man to harness a horse and take him
home. This went ou until the owner
of the stable resolved that the man
must be remonstrated with. There-
fore the gentleman having arrived
one night from Portland at the usual
hour and in the usual condition and
the horse having been put into the
conveyance and the man loaded in as
usual the stable owner turned to his
passenger and said
"Look here squire! If you don't
quit this sort o' business purty soon
ther'll be slngin' down to your house
some day and begad you won't hear
a word of it!"
Some thi ng about th is ad mon i tion
the grim pfcturesquenessot it perhajis
caused it to sink into the man's
mind and he left off his trips to
Portland for some time.
Th Sedan Chair.
The sedan chair is named after Se-
dan the town where It was first used.
The earliest mention of It in En-
gland occurs in 1581. Early In the
following century the Duke of Buck-
ingham caused much indignation by-
its used In London. People were ex-
asperated at that nob eman employ-
ing his fellowmen to take the place
of horses to carry him. Prince
Charles brought from Spain in ls2:i.
three curiously wrought sedans two
of which he gave to the Duke of
Buckingham A few weeks after
their introduction Massingcr pro-
duced his play "The lion tnian " and
in it he thus adverts to the ladies:
For their p nip and care being borsa
In triumph on m a .boulders.
The reference is doubtless to Buck-
ingham's sedan which was borne like

off an iron bar from her stall and as
it could not be found it was sur-

"Mr. Hamiiiu saw that poor Beta

a unique plan to remove it. Attached
to his large winter hotel was a small
colored boy who went by the name of

for him and explained that he must
take a rubber tule in his mouth to

round his waist go down into the
elephant's stomach and get out that
