STREET OF YELLOW SPIDERS.
Curious Discovery in a Florida Thicket
A Mantle of Mimicry.
Once in attempting to force my way
through the thick hay cedar under
brush of one of the smaller and outer
keys of the Florida reef, I suddenly
broke into an opening which had the
appearance of a narrow street or
trail. The brush was six or eight
feet in height and remarkably thick,
and the heat was intolerable. The
branches and leaves which were inter
laced formed a perfeot network, and
gave shelter to innumerable crabs,
which had taken possession of old
birds’ nest, while under foot the eggs
and newly hatched terns almost cover
ed the ground.
Once in the opening or street, it
was found to be about seven feet
across, winding away out of sight; but
my way was blocked by several curi
ous obstacles —a succession of webs
stretched vertically across the pathway
at intervals of five or six feot. They
were of extraordinay strength, and
were thrown out and poised in a mar
vellous manner. In the centre of
each of these silken barriers clung a
huge yellow- spider, so ugly and con
spicuous that I stopped before the
first doubting the evidence of my
eyes; and as I looked, the first yellow
spider of the series disappeared.
There w-as no doubt about it; at first
so striking and gaudy, it slowly faded
aw ay, and through the web I could
see other yellow spiders beyond, sug
gesting that it was no illusion.
While I stood wondering in the hot
sun, the spider solved the mystery by
appearing again, first dimly, then like
many spiders quivering in the strong
light, finally resolving itself into one
huge yellow fellow that moved like a
pendulum to and fro and then stopped.
I touched it gently with a switch I
held, whereupon it deliberately began
to swing its huge body, imparting to
the entire web a vibratory motion
which increased in rapidity until the
body of the spider began to grow
fainter, and in a few moments became
invisible. It was all very simple
when understood; the spider when
alarmed began to swing, gradually in
creasing bis motion until it disap
peared or could not be followed by the
eye. Thinking the case might be ex
ceptional, I again touched the spider,
and again it literally swung itself out
Crawling beneath the web, I con
fronted the next spider, which also
was yellow or saffron in color, with
black velvet-like markings, hanging
in the sun like a great topaz, its web
dotted with the remains of many
feasts, empty skeletons of insects, bits
of pearly fish-scales, perhaps dropped
by some passing bird, a delicate fea
ther, and a motley array of flies and
other insect-folk. At first the spider
paid me scant attention; then I saw a
slight convulsive movement of its legs
as it imparted the first long swing to
its hammock-like web that put this
wonderful life-saving device, for this
it was, in motion. It was the spider’s
defenco and protection from enemies.
Certain birds undoubtedly preyed
upon the spiders, and this faculty of
mysteriously disappearing had on
more than one occasion served it well.
I could easily imagine the astonish
ment of the bird when darting down
to seize the plump and showy spider
to find that it had slipped away.
There was much in this street of
yellow spiders to distract the mind
from the intense heat that poured
down from the almost vertical sun. In
the middle of the path, beyond a turn,
grew a clump of cactus, with here
and there a ripe fruit rich in the pur
ple of full maturity—a brilliant con
trast to the green leaves. As I stood
watching the hermit-crabs dropping
from the bushes and scurrying away
over the sand, I thought I saw a ripe
fruit of the cactus move; then, to my
amazement it passed directly out of
sight; and after the fashion of the
spiders, but he slipped around one of
the big leaves. I almost expected to
see the others follow it, but nothing
of the kind occurred. I walked along
and placed myself in a position to see
behind the broad, flat, pear-shaped
leaf. There w-as the purple object
now moving cautiously around with
the evident intention of keeping itself
out of sight, and then I saw it w-as a
crab, a crab with a purple back the
exact tint of the fruit, while its gen
eral shape, when the legs were tucked
up beneath the body, made the crab
a mimic of the cactus fruit, a protec
tive resemblance so perfect that the
crab was safe from sharp-eyed enemies
and I should have passed it by had it
remained quiet; but the phenomenon
of moving fruit attraced my atten
tion and led to its discovery.
For some distance I followed this
street of spiders, creeping beneath the
webs when I could, and everywhere
these tricks of nature to protect the
defenceless were apparent. The eggs
of the gulls simulated the sand in
color; the little mantis, which clung
to the big cedar, was the exact tint of
the leaves and defied detection until
acdideutally brushed off. Over all
life in the secluded spot nature had
thrown her protective mantle of mim
icry.—New York Post.

Hymn Writer Dead.
The funeral of Miss Maria Straub,
well known to Chicago and the West
as a writer of hymns for the Church
and Sunday-school, who died recently
took place in Chicago.
Miss Straub was the author of nearly
200 hymns, all of which have been set
to music by American composers.
Among the best known of her works
are the temperance hymn, “Gird on
Your Sword of Trust,” and “Wave,
Columbia, Wave Thy Banner.”
She was an ardent worker in the
Woman’s Christian Temperance Union,
and, although contending with a life
of bodily affliction, wielded an import
ant influence through her writings.—

Tlu* Ornamental Parlor Maid.
It has been a growing custom for
those young men of sufficient leisure
to make afternoon calls on their lady
friends and sip with them a cup of tea.
The custom is bouud to become im
mensely popular should the feature
thus enunciated become universal.
Here is something decidedly new:
It is the ornamental parlor maid, a
lady-like being, whose waist belt must
not lueasuvs over sixteen inches and
who is consequently the embodiment
of “style.” She is permitted to wear
a dark blue serge costume, with white
cuffs and collar, while upon her per
fectly dressed hair perches a coquet
tish white cap. Considering her cor
seted condition, no labor save that of
handing cups of tea in tho drawing
room is expected of her. But, please,
think what anew element of danger
this modish handmaiden may intro
duce into certain households! She is
a prize figurehead of housework; the
envied of all her peers; the admired
of every visitor of the masculine gen
der; the criticised of every other wo
man who hasn’t thought of setting up
a sixteen-inch waist tea bearer. Well,
well, perhaps we had better stick to
the thin-legged footman or to the but
ler or even to a plebeian “gill” who
doesn’t go to a manicure after-*U!—
Now', perhaps, at the moment, in
spite of the brown linen revelations in
undergarments and the augmenting
splendors of the millinery displays,
nothing is more refreshing to the al
ready footsore shopper, her brain daz
zled with money changing and close
bargaining, than those chosen corners
of the big shops where tea gowns and
breakfast negligees are displayed.
There is so much doing in this quar
ter just now for a revival of a fashion
has sprung up unexpectedly, women
have decided that it is both a pretty
and appropriate thing to breakfast in
artistic volantes, crown their heads
with caps and rather make a function of
the early toilet, that none but the fam
For this reason we find, in both
elaborate and simple styles, the most
charming breakfasting robes, which
are something of a cross between the
wrapper and the tx> elaborate tea
gown. With each and everyone,
though a cap is worn, whether the
wearer is a debutante or the mother of
a debutante. The old women, how
ever, rather affects caps that tie under
the chin, while the spinsters and young
married women cling to the coquettish
topknots, snoods of ribbon and bow
knots or falls of filmy lace and muslin.

* Resented an Act of Politeness*
If she had been a plain-looking, mid
dle-aged woman I don’t think she
would have resented it, but as she was
an uncommonly handsome girl of
twenty or thereabouts, and wore a
stunning tailor-made suit of dark
green, with a white vest, and a bunch
of white cock plumes in her hat, she
mistook an act of politeness for imper

His cheeks colored crimson. He

showed that she was not a well-bred

ago, a woman would have expected
such an attention, and a dozen men
would have offered to carry her lug

the boat, but nowadays a gentleman
dare not offer to do an act of politeness
without being slapped in the faee. I
said something to that effect to Mrs.

Miss Keller has been studying in a

like the big office books in use in
counting rooms. The raised letters
she can road as rapidly as if she could
see, and the Brayl system, where a
cipher consisting of dots and dashes
takes the place of letters can be read
even more rapidly, because the matter
is more condensed.

reads —not by sight as do the deaf
mutes, nor by listening to others, as
do the blind who can hear. She sim
ply places her hand over the fingers of
one who is reading by using the sign
language for the deaf, and catches
every word. In this way she has
covered the whole range of her pre
paratory studies. For her arithmetic
a special slate was invented, and she
has become an accurate and ready
worker in mathematics.
Miss Keller has been provided with
a planetarium, upon'which she can
feel the positions of the heavenly
bodies, and has gained a clear idea oi
their relations to each other.
The whole world will watch the
progress of this wonderful girl’s ex

unnecessary expense which he musl

disadvantage. If be insists on cut

this, he too often objects to paying

facts, it is refreshing to receive a letter
from a farmer, who says that he be

that such means of communication
would decrease the farmers’ taxes
rather than increase them.—L. A. W.
Good Ilonils and Broad Tires.)
The movement in favor of good roads
which has at last really begun to agi
tate rural communities all over the
country involves many contributory
issues of considerable importance. For
instance, associations which have un
dertaken the task of improving the
country roads are generally advising
farmers to make use of broad tires
upon their wagon-wheels, instead of
the narrow tires which cut and rut a
soft road so deeply.
It is not easy to induce the farmers
to follow this advice, because it im
plies and requires at the outset the re
pairing of the road. Broad-tired
wagons could make little or no progress
over some of the muddy and rough
roads which are too often found not
far from the busiest and most thriving
cities. Narrow wheels cut their way
through more easily, but only at the
cost of exhausting the horses which
draw the wagon, and of still further
injuring the road as a thoroughfare.
If the highway could but be im
proved sufficiently to' bear the heavy
tires, the wheels would act like a minia
ture road-roller, and assist in keeping
the road in good condition instead of
tearing it to pieces.
As an immediate result, access to
markets would be made much more
easy, draught animals would gain in
efficiency aud length of service, and it
would be possible to transport larger
loads with greater ease and conveni
ence than is the case at present.
The farmers and the rural commu
nities which they control hesitate to
take the first step because of the im
mediate expense involved. It ought
not to be hard to convince so intelli
gent a portion of the community that
real economy, both of labor and money,
would be gained by improved road
beds and the use of broader tires.—

A Well-Matched Royal Couple.
A correspondent says the news of
the betrothal of Prince Charles of
Sweden to Princess Ingeborg of Den
mark is scarcely calculated to excite
much interest, for the bride is neither
pretty nor clever, having inherited the
gigantic stature, the huge bones,
cavernous mouth, liorße laugh and
peculiar carriage of her ungainly and
extraordinary mother, the crown
princess of Denmark. On the other
hand, Prince Charles of Sweden is far
and away the least agreeable, least
clever and assuredly the most homely
of all the sons of Oscar, King of
Sweden and Norway. Indeed, there
is not one redeeming point about
Prince Charles, and it is difficult to
find, either in his own country or
abroad, any one willing to say a good
word in his behalf. Moreover, he is
stone deaf. Perhaps it id just on that
account that he has asked Princess
Ingeborg to become his wife. For
even her whispers are of the most
stentorian character, and her voice is,
as far as volume and size are con
cerned, in keeping with her stature—
that is to say, very big.

Tit human comtlttltlon Is very much like afire, and the ay many people try to tale care ol
their health may be compared to tbt way a careless kitchen girl looks alter the cooking-stove. One
minute it is raging red-hot, and then suddenly, first thin* you know, the tiro is out. People are
sometimes led to believe that a medicine which has a sudden, tremendous effect must be truly won
derful They forget that it maybe merely a tremendous“ draught " which imparts a temporary false
effect of brightness and “ fire '' to the system, but suddenly drops it lower than before.
There is no sudden overwhelming effect about Ripens TabuJes. home people think the prescribed
dose is too slow, and douhle it to get a quicker effect. But nance hereeff is slow, moderate and'
tegular in accomplishing her besl work- The Tabules relieve acute headaches, indigestion and
nervous depression almost instantly. .But their effect on the bowels is more gradual; yet It ta
sure and thorough. Ripant Tabules act In accordance with nature, and their results Idee nature’s are
complete and permanent.
