Hermit Crabs In Fierce Fight After i i Bpoit Is Carried Off. I A writer In a British periodical describes an encounter he saw in a large aquarium at Brighton. He was watching some young herrings swimming about close to the bottom of the tank, when the claw of a fierait crab suddenly shot out and caught one. The capture had, however, been seen by another hermit crab, which once claimed a share, and a most amusing chase Unable alone tc achieve his No. 2 went off, but presently returned, with a friend, with whose help it succeeded In effecting a capture.

But the chase had aroused the Interest of the hermit-crab colony, and presently from fifteen to twenty of. them were engaged in a furious battle for the herring. Then occurred the most amusing episode of all. Out of the struggling mass there crawled a hermit crab, dragging the body, somewhat dilapidated by now, of the her-ring, with which it quietly retired behind a rock out of sight of Its companions and. proceeded, to make a meal, while all the others continued to fight.

Trapping the Andean Condor. Anyone who has ever watched heavy bird rise from the ground has doubtless noticed that it runs along the ground for a few feet before It rises; the bird must acquire some momentum before its wings can lift its heavy body into the air. The natives In certain parts of the Andes understand this fact very well and by means of it catch the great Andean vultures, the condors. A small space is shut in with a high fence and left open at the top. Then a lamb or a piece of carrion is placed on the ground inside.

Presently a vulture sees the bait and swoops down upon dying favor. Last week the Twin Mound correspondent objected with considerable asperity to a proposed change on rural route 18. The fact of the case is this. A patron who lives east of town and who is one of the last to get his mail, made the statement as a joke to the Twin Mound patrons that an effoit would be mado to change the order of tbe route, having the carrier serve tho east part of the route first instead of the south part. The whole thing tvas a joke and no change has been contemplated.

One of the rural route men is think ing of having some cards printed with the followi ng questions, so that he may fill out the answers ntid leave in the mail boxes of his numerous patrons and thus save much daily vocal effort. How are the roads? How much is Barnes paying for hogs? What is Harris paying for corn? Has there been any fights down town lately? How do you like your job? When is the editor coming out with you? Are you catching nny fish cow? What time is the 10:25 train due? Will the afternoon train be on time? Do you think it will Two incidents Show Value of Presence of Mind.
