foot and a half thick and likely to break In pieces afresh or pile up In deadly masses at the mercy of the sea and wind The two men had three sledges and eighteen dogs They had hardly started before the wind rose and a gale threatened Halfway to their destination there was an Iceberg imbedded In the pack ice and they hastened to reach this before the storm should break For five hours they tolled over the Ice the wind gradually rising The gale broke In fury just as they reach ed the iceberg under whose lee they pitched a tiny silk tent Into which they crawled after having fed their dogs as best they could Hour after hour the wind raged and the ther nometer went to 9 degrees below zero file snow drifted over and into the tent Sleep was impossible typhoonsantropics found by the aneroId as

achild from environments of rime and places it in a Christian home it has done Ken tucky a service that can not be ac cprately measured Let us supPQse the child had not been rescued from its miserable abode and suppose it had been permitted to grow to manhopd in all atmosphere of thieves and murder ers and that this man went forth upon errands of crime arid debauchery do you not see that his criminal career would cost Kentucky much in moneyj and perhaps much in human life Whei a child is taken from a highway of crime and a good citizen is made of it the world is indebted to the man or

to keep out of politics they are told that it is very dangerous round for young men to walk upon fcnd that promising business careers are often ruined by dabbling in matters political To some extent this is true pd in some respects the advise is good But may we not ask what would become of the country if ALL GOOD MEN heeded this advice Where would the nation be in ten years from riow if ALL GOOD MEN rdfused to enteep- olitical arena in contests for public office The perpetuity of the Republic- is due to the fact that good patriotic levelheaded citizens are now and then inducted into office through ground skuffling in political fights The affairs of our State and comity would be as mixed asa Chinese puzzle if ALL GOOD MEN tunled their backs upon politics grafters would steal everything

insignificant offense of stealing the peoples money The people have been robbed so often and in so many different ways that they haVe become accustomed to it by this time We imagine it will inconvenience these Philadelphia financiers to stay in pris on besides it may in a small way be embarrassing How very ridiculous it is to send bankers to the penitentiary for stealing the peoples money when the people want somebody to steal their money The people the dear good sovereign peoplefile into the yoting booths Of the country every year and vote for individuals whose only desire for office lieiz in the fact that the office will enable thenrto steal the peoples money The Hat Qusti n Twentyfive thousand hatmakers of New Jersey are on a strike but there is nb danger of the country

signal tower in the Otterkill valley said the talk stive railroad telegraph operator bloying smoke rings from my pipe and jumping through them when I ieard the train dispatcher calling me on the wIre I answered and he direct dme to put the bug against extra 733 west as he had orders to give em v iIn that tower we had in addition to the ordinary semaphore signals a distant signal for westbound trains as they approached the tower from a curve 0n a down grade It was oper electric switch in the tower t So flfhen I received the instructions from the train dispatcher set the electric signal and waited for the 733 Jto sho In a few minutes I was sur prised to see her come around the curve under full head of sfeam mak lug about 30 miles an hour with a light train Of course as soon as the engin eer saw the semaphore at the tower at danger he whistled for down brakes t and salted heroas the railroad ex presslon is when the engineer is comp led to reverse his locomotive in order to make a sudden stop v At th4 they ran a couple of train lengths by the tower and the conduc tor had to walk back about 500 feet to get the dispatchers message To make a conductor cheerful just com pl him to walk a few extra feet for a message setting out additional work r for IDs crew i Well say you would have had to have a shorthand specialist toget down the shorter and uglier words Which passed between the knight of the throttle the train crew and my pelf They averred that I hadnt set the distant signal at danger to warn them what to expect when they came in sight of the tower I just as stren uously maintained that I had set the signal But what was my word against seven or eight of them The same thing happened several times and I got reported to the su perintendent as being lax inJily- watchful Scare of the signals Ivlg brbusly defended myself and set forth that the electric signal must be out ot lterso they sent a lineman tot look it over V We tested It thoroughly the lIne- man walking around the curve and paingUiere while I threw t1eslgnal tov danger and released it time and again It worked to perfecUon Of CoUrse It looked bad for me In the ey aof the boss I was getting to be an

being particularly apparent balkinessI dust jat night and along daybreak In the morning In the gloaming one evening I set a distant signal In order torstop the Mountain expre sowlng to obstructed track The repair man happened to be in the tower The way that passenger came around that turn was a caution Haying high pressure air brakes they dis11tancelme Leaving the inspector in charge of the tower 1 ran around the curve with a lantern to do a little inspecting on my own book- Approaching the sign l II saw it was at safety all Tight I heard howls of pain and then saw a large bear seated on the baseof the metal signal pole making frantic endeavors to free himself Hastily getting a gun we dispatlched his bearship and thereafter the signalwas right up to snuff The way we doped it out was that at some time or other the bear had swum the Otterkill creek and his way taking him across the track a6clden tally his paw came in contact with the electrical signal You know dampness increases the strength of an electric current and the bears wet body fresh from the creek made a fine conductor and he got an extra heavy dose He rather liked the sensation So ever night and morning before retir ing and after leaving his bed Bruin would swim the Otterkill and sit on the ignal for a free electrical bath His wet body had the effect of short circuiting the semaphore rendering it locked at clear and inoperative Tile night he got caught the electric burrent became so strong as to hold him in its grasp just the same as you see people try to Jet go of those1 electric machines which test your electrIcal endurance although the motions he went through In trying to free himself would have made one of those chorus girls doing a Salomy dance look like a wooden Indian af flicted with Ipcomotor ataxia Say put in the tall cynical conduct rr should think you could make more money selling those electrical bear trlips than you do oper atiniem from the signal tower Scientists Found In

decided to go in for amateur photography on a more extensive stale Striilghtwaie went to a fash ionable dealer and bought an e pen sive camera with plate holder attachment Ill call by for it tomorrow norn ing he told the clerk Please be sure to have a couple of plates il the holder for I want to take some pic tures if the weather Is fine Ill have the plates put In and ev erything ready for you sir the sales man replied Then Marvin began to think of what he should most like to snap with his new camera There were the new library the new custom house the new art gallery But somehow or oth er none of these marble structures appealed to him Theres nothing like a human sub ject when it comes to photography he mused The next thought followed naturally And the best of humfin subjects is a pretty girl in a pretty gown A moment later he was talking over the telephone Hello Aileen Ive just bought a new camera he announced Indeed Marvin thats interesting came back over the wire And what are you going to do with it Take some pictures of Aileen If shell let me he replied rOb that will be splendid she ex claimed And when are you going to take them T Tomorrow morning if Jyou say so All right Ive got nothing oh hand for tomorrow morning she answered Where shall Ve go Out into the park Then Ill don a frock that will be In accord with the setting she laughed Aileen was as good as her word for when Marvin stopped for her next morning camera in hand she wore the smartest blue suit imaginable al most matching the clear autumn sky Oh I know we will have a nice litS tie expedition she ventured And Im to have my picture taken for why let me seefor the first time since early spring Let me get a peep at your new camera Its a beauty Isnt it- Yes he replied It is supposed to do extra fine Work You ster iam somewhat of a novice and the camera has to be a gOod one for me This one has a holder for plates at the back Ive never used plates before but the clerk filled up the holder for me and Pm going to try them this morning ISoo they were strolling down one of elet slopes of the park The leaves were falling from the larger trees but the occasional bushes were as green as in springtime They passed a lake and presently they came into a little glen that ran right up against a hillside This ought to be a fine place for the pictures he suggested Suppose you strike a pose anything you like Well hows this Sir Photogra pher she queried putting her closed parasol back over her shoulder and holding it at both endsas a huntsman sometimes carries his gun and throw Ing her head buck in a merry laugh Vetiy fetching he commented but IlbclIcVe that with the parasol up and a side view w uld be even more so Try itlf you dont mind She turned slightly opened the parasol and held it back over her shoulder tth one hand Her dainty head Was silhouetted against the turquoise sky for shewas standing on the slope sev eral feejj above him This ones a stunner he declared shifting his position Then he drew out of the plate holder the thin little board protecting the first plate and click it csas over How did I look she questioned Wjith an alluring glance now did you look ho repeated Why you werebut please dont ask ire such questions for the first thi- y4uknow Ill be telling you more corn p imentnry things than would be gobd fpr youor me either OhverJ wellshe laughed shrug gng her shoulders

trouble aplcntj All your posing has been for naught Theres not a single solitary plate in this blooming thing Look at it Oh how funny she gurgled How did it happen It happened because that forgetful clerk failed to put In the plates after solemnly assuring me that he would he answered Well theres nothing to do but some out here again sometime Lets go oyer and sit tlpwn un der that big tree and chat awhile and try to laugh off this fiasco t She readijy agreed and they sat down on a rustic bench and commented on their failure Just to think those poses had to be lost on an unappreciative camera she complained with a little pout Yes It wa a pity he agreed But after all they werentlost on an unappreciative photographer Keally werent they And her eyes flashed pleasurable surprise II should say not he affirmed ear nestly his voice unsteady For a longtime 1 shall remember them I think She was silent as she looked at him questioniugly Alee he continued his tOne low er dont you know

One must I tell you of thatshows you with a young man in the moonlight Its a beautiful gal lery my dear the most beautiful I am sure in all the world She was gazing at him now with a new look in her

the jsubjeet always present he declared the twinkle return lug to his eyes is she willing With you as photographer Marvin Yes Shes been willing for quite a Iqng time After all he commented as they walked homeward this picture taking expedition without plates has been the most successful of my whole life Bubbles and Science Until Lord Rayleigh supplied the missing explanation scientific men had never been able to explain how It is that a soap bubble can exist It is only with a very few liquids that soap bubbles can be blown The reason Is that some cannot lather even if shaken up vigorously while others lather with cbuYpiete ease The natural question therefore arose Why is it that some liquids lather and others will not and how is It that a sphere of liquid film of almost Infinitesimal thickness cnn exist In a still moist atmosphere for hours and even days 1 This was all exhaustively explained for the first time by Lord Rayleigh The explanation is partly a question of physicssaml chemistry and it may be suecIn4Iy described according to Sir Oliver Ledge as follows A sur face which possesses the minutest trace of scum has less tension than a clear or less r scummed surface and such a scum no matter how thin it may be has the tendency to slide down If its liquid support or foundation dis plays any Inclination to the horizon Furthermore a lathering liquid has a complex and resistible constitution sufficient to yield by partial dissocIa- tion owing to the tension of the sur face a quasi solid scum while the con stant tendency of the viscous liquid to slip between two layers of scum Is a- very slow process Reportorial Persistence Once a reporter went to a certain residence in KewYork to get details about the master of the house who had just died in order that an obituary notice might appear In the news paper which he represented Such de tails as a rule are easy to get The reporter therefore was intensely sur prised when the Widow of the de censed with scarcely a word slammed the door In his face She retired into the house Presently the doorbell rang furiously She re fused to stir Again the doorbell rang more furiously than before Still the lady of the house would not stir I have told him that I dont want to say anything about my husband she thought to herself and he has no right to be so persistent So she sat still while the doorbell rang again arid again and again At last she could stand It no longer so opening a window over the front door she poked her head out andre marked severely Young man I do not desire to say anything to you Kindly do not disturb me any moresGo away young man I cant roared the reporter beside himself with exasperation You have shut my coattails In the door If you would have a faithful serv ant and one thnt ou

Copyright by Shprtstory Pub Co A long iron steamer was slowly nos- Ing her way eastward through the sluggish waters of the Suez canal She was apparenUy in the most astonish ing state of disrepair and dilapidation Once she had been painted black but that was in the dim abyss of time now her battered sides were of the natural and unashamed hue of the plates diversified by broad blotches and bands of rust The brasswork other ports was green the funnel sagged rails and decKs were greasy and chipped The dock loafers had jeered at her when she wallowed into Port Said and she had appeared in the maritime intelligence of Trieste a week previous as Str Ukarine Trieste L Passaro master cleared for Zanzibar in ballast HaUl a dozen Levantines were gambling on the decks forward a ruffianly Maltese in a red cap held the wheel and a young man in a blue and white yachting costume much weath erbeat nand tanned stood on the bridge just outside the wheelhouse They had reached a point midway between Kantara and Lake Timsan when a dull report sounded heavily from far down in the ships interior There was a disturbance and a bub bling of the water alongside and a strange and acrid odor drifted up the forward hatchway The young man in the duck trousers sprang to the wheel snatched it from the startled Maltese and with a quick twirl of the spokes swung the vessels head round till she lay nearly athwart the canal The object of this maneuver was not apparent but it seemed to have been ineffectual There was a sound of gurgling waters from below and the ship lurched heavily to starboard A tremendous hissing and a gush of steam announced that the fires had been flooded and a moment later the black and halfnude staff of the en glnerooms precipitated themselves on deck Alongside the calm waters seemed to be rising with amazing ra pidity toward the rail and in three minutes the keel touched bottom with a perceptible thump The canal is 26 feet deep and the water reached nearly to her lower deck She lay squarely across the fairway her awk ward bulk completely blocking the deepwater channel The great gate between the two wQrlds was jammed The rLevantlnes jabbered and swore in a dozen dialects but presently at the command of the yachtsman they launched one pf the boats and rowed oft in the direction of Ishmailia The young man thus abandoned sat down in a deck chair lighted a cigarette and gazed across the desert As the retreating parsplashes of the crew died out the hot silence settled down unbroken But for the gigantic ditch alongside he might have fancied himself in the mid Sahafa The sandy and rocky plain ran red and yellow to thje extreme limit of vision Far the southeast El Guisr thrust a jagged black peak against the spotless horizon The sun poured down fiercely The young man had time to smoke many cigarettes and to gaze to sa Uety at the glaring monotony land scape But in about three hours a whirring electric launch shot up the launch of the canal patrol and the officer clambered aboard He Vas a smootls aven Englishman wearing the uniform of the Canal Company I say he began sharply Who are you Dont you sjee youre blocking the canal Im sorry said the man on board Have a cigarettetheyre Manilas My name is Davenport and this is my private yacht the Ukraine of Trieste las you can see by looking over the stern if all the lettering hasnt been rubbed off i I say repeated the Briton star ing But this is no joke you know How did you come to sink in this po BitiPnWe just seemed to spring a leak returned Davenport cheerfully This yacht has been porous for some time As for our peculiar position that is entirely the fault of the fool who had hold of the wheel He swung her round as she went down Ill bring a diver to look at the leak at onceat your expense said the Englishman Hlf she can be plugged and pumped out very well Well give you 24 hours If she isnt afloat at the end of that time well have to blow her up The official removed himself rapidly In the launch but returned a little before sunset with an Arab diver who removed his clothes and went under like a frog Davenport leaned over the rail and watched the operations wi considerable interest After half an hours work the Englishman came m board the Ukraine to report The diver says there is a hole in her side big enclgh to drive a horse through he said Its a most ex iraordinary piece of business I must say It would be absolutely impossible to pair her as she lies and she is rUng merely on her bows and stern to that she is likely to break in two l 1 besides Ill give you till eight oclock Omorrow morning to gut her and at that hour well send the dynamite launch At this decisive announcement Day enport manifested for the first time some embarrassment Look here he suddenly blurted Dont do that Shes had quite enough of that sort of thing He I suppose I may as wellhesitatedI clean breast of It The fact loaded with nitrorglycerine I cases of it packed away in the sand ballast All of it is 10 or 15 feet un der water now Some o it must have gone off and blown out her side I heard a noise Wly it didnt set off all the rest I cant imagine But If you blow her up here it will produce ar explosion that will wreck the canal for a mile The other man stared Good heav ens and what were you going to do with all that explosive he ejaculated- I prefer not to say Taking it to Delagoa bay for the Boers posslbjy If I really thought you were said the Briton stiffly I would have you arrested 1 we will have to have the cases of explosives taken out by divers and then the hulk will be dynamited df course all this will be done at your expense The launch whirred off again leav ing Davenport not greatly impressed He knew that not one of the native divers of Port Said could be induced to handle nitroglycerine he doubted if the directors of the company would even risk allowing them to handiest in that dangerous position be necessary to bring a regular sub marine wrecking outfit from Trieste or Naples and this would take days perhaps a week In the meantime the swift equatorial darkness was jfalling and he decorated the ship with numerous red lanterns hoisted an enqr mous red flag in the rigging and hung a white board over the stern with the inscription in four languages i DANG5ERI This Vessel Is Loaded with Dynamite Dangerous to Apprp sch He spent the night on the bare deck and at dawn he got a small skiff overboard and rowed himself to Ishmni lia very hungry for the proVisIons had all been flooded From Ishmailia he took the railroad to Cairo and thence to Port Saidat the canal head NO shipping had been allowed to fn ter the canal since the accident was reported and inside the breakwater were already waiting a couple of large freighters a big fpurmasted Steel clipper and an Austrian Lloyd mall steamer More ships continued to ar rive and Davenport sat o the end of the pier and watched them sweeping the horizon with a binocular for warn ing smudges of smoke Another ocean tramp came in an Italian liner and a transport full of British troops which at once made the port uproar ious Then about noon a large war ship appeared at full speed from the west She was fast had three funnels and when she came near enough to make It clear that she was flying the French flag Davenport put his glass into its case and sighed with relief Then he smiled thoughtfully Almost before she had lost way a boat was dropped over her side and an officer was rowed rapidly to the landing Thence with no less rapid ity he was driven In a hack to the French consular offices In five min utes he reappeared accompanied by the consul himself and the pair hurried to the offices of the Suez Canal Company They came out again with no pleas ant expression and both went down to the pier and were taken aboard the cruiser which had not anchored but was lying to with steam up In hall an hour the consul returned ashore accompanied this tmebY the captaia in a gorgeous fulldress uniform and a slight darkfaced orientallooking youth in the uniform of a French col onel of cavalry Davenport had watched these corn ings and goings with a deep and not unintelligent interest Indeed It was an awkward moment for ai blockade on the road to the east Ten days be fore it had been secretly cabled to Paris from the French legation in Bangkok that the king of Sian was supposed to have been poisoned n the harem He might live fQr weeks he might even then be dying it wni impossible for an outsider to learn with accuracy of happenings im the palace The kings eldest broher the Ong Yai

right of royal succession would be transferred to the eldest son of the first queen as among western peoples instead of remaining with the Ong Yal About the same time the French ambassador had scored a success by inducing the king to send the young crown prince Ohya Varafid hl to Pa is to receive a for eign education Here he was officially welcomed with royal ifionors feted given rank in the Freh

would be SUB tained by the foreign governmentlff only for the sake of peace PpssesaipH would mean all the points Pf thV law and the road was barred by J1b1 fernal machine In the French consulate andSn thi French cruiser there was exasperatldm and alarm The cables toe the east hummed with cipher messages The commander offered the seryi jes of lila blue jackets to remove the sunken Ukraine he offered to tear it to pieces with his own bare hands Mpney was no object but the directors of thV canal mostly Englishmen had no Ptticular sympathy with the Frenclii mans incomprehensible and almost tearful excitement and declined to risk having a mile of the canal embankments shattered by the tampering ol unskilled hands A hurry order lied been cabled to Naples for wreckers Land they might be expected jri two or three days Till then it was necis sary to wait It turned out to be four days and for several persons in the port they were the slowest four days on record Ship after ship continued to

imposing and offiiaIlook1ntS document tied with tape and decor ated with several ounces of red wax and bowed himself over the side CWOj hours later he went aboard a Westbound steam r that was ready to sail and disappeared under the Mediter ranean horizon The diverts went to work at once hauling up carefully several tin case filled with sand After an Investigation lasting an hour pr two a con pIe of charges of dynamite were exploded under the Ukraine with no Unusual effects The canal was clear and ina solid procession the lofbegan to pass through For a wefjc there was a double file moving inop
