Rev. W.F. Smith tells us of a horse he once knew that would always refuse to pull if 3 persons, no matter what size or weight, were in the buggy to which he was hitched, but he never refused to pull 2 of any size. That was a horse that could count.

A MYSTIFIED BIRD

A curious incident is related of a canary bird by a Georgia paper.
The door of the bird's cage was occasionally left open so that he might enjoy the freedom of the room.

One day he happened to land upon the mantel where there was a mirror. Here was a new discovery of the most profound interest. He gazed long and curiously at himself, and came to the conclusion that he had found a mate. Going back to his cage, he selected a seed from his box, and brought it in his bill as an offering to the stranger.

In vain the canary exerted himself to make his new-found friend partake, and becoming weary of that, tried something different.
Stepping back a few inches from the mirror, he poured forth his sweetest notes, pausing now and then for a reply.

None came, moody and dispirited he flew back to his perch in the cage, hanging his head in shame and silence for the rest of the day, and although the door was repeatedly left open, he refused to come out again.

Last Thursday night, as the stage was coming from Markleville, the road seemed to get very heavy near Woodford's Canon. The horses could hardly drag the load, and seemed to have harder work at every step.
Finally they stopped to rest at the top of the little knoll just this side of Woodford's Station, and when the driver attempted to start the horses, they could not pull an inch.

He dismounted and took a lantern to examine the running gear, when, to his astonishment, he found, as he thought, that a rope had been tied between the 2 wheels. Laying his hand on the rope, he pulled back with a yell of horror to discover that a live snake had twisted itself between the rear and front wheels, and was holding the stage as securely as if the wheels had been tied with a rope.

The reptile had evidently been trying to block the stage for several miles, and when the horses stopped for a rest, improved his opportunity to tighten his coils to effectually prevent the stage from starting again.

The passengers got out and attacked the snake with clubs and stones, as the snake thrashed about under the wheels, the horses were wild with terror. He was finally killed and untangled from the wheels. He was the style of snake known as a " mountain runner " and measured 12 feet 4 inches. When stretched tightly between the wheels he was much longer.
