'Testing" corn liquor is one of the
most frequent preliminaries to con- i

abroad. Lightnin' that burns with a
white flame is supposed to be danger

otherwise be undesirable; shine that

overcomes caution, even of this un

the reverse is not always true. An

Relic of Glacial Age. -4
Devil's Pulpit, located about two
niles east of Batavia, N. Y., is a relic
f the giacial age. It is a huge mas
f rock shaped like an hour glass,
and s one of the most peculiar and
triking natural formations In the
whole state. The base is fully 30 feet
cross. It slopes upward to a nar
-ow rock, corresponding to the neck
hrough which the sands of an hour
tlass sift, and then broadens out to

imestone and stands 20 feet in height.

niles away to the north, and ge

noter vein and dragged those five
niles by the big glacier- that swept
