A man boarder threatened to "knock
the block off" the noisy one and
then n. deep silence reigned for the
rest of the night.
Tho Kahului race track is begin
ning to look more like a place that
horses could use. The heavy rains

to a Sky Lark
(By P. M. McMaUon.)
Oh, little lark, how sweet your song,
How blissful is its measure.
To what rare world do you belong
That you're so full of pleasure?
Your home methinks is not of earth,
For here we're bom to sorrow,
Whilst your whole life is all of mirth,
That thinks not of the morrow,
On airy and enraptured wing
The ether blue you're cleaving,
And ever, ever seem to sing
Just for the joy of living.
I feel within your mellow strain
A soft, delicious madness,
That thrills and soothes my heart and brain,
And fills my life with gladness.
No, not from earth your song doth come,
But surely it was given
To you from some blest angel's lips
As close you soared to heaven! .
O happy bird, how blind are we,
Poor, proud, conceited mortals.
With greater love we'd be, like thee,
Much nearer heaven's portals 1

Step3 are about to be taken in
France to make possible the legal
application of the Bertillion system
to prisoners when they leave prison.
Hitherto, according to the regu
lations, M. Bertillion has been able
to photograph and measure tho
features of criminals only at tho timo
of thdir arrest. But it has long been
recognized at tho Prefecture of Police
that after serving a sentence of, say,
ten years, a criminal is liable to
show a complete change of appear
ance on his liberation.
Consequently it is difficult for
detectives to identify him from tho
Bertillion record, taken at the timo
of tho first arrest, if he again gets
into the hands of the police.
A novel electrical tapper for rub
ber trees is tho work of a German
in Peru. Hollow iron channels,
divided into sections, aro fitted on

A receptacle in each section cat
ches the latex (plant juice,) coagu
lating it with acid. Tho attach
ment may be left unvisited two or
three months, and in tho time 200
or 300 lumps of rubber may bo ac
cumulated from a largo tree.
The coal deposits of China are
considered greater than those of the
United States. Tho new republic
has reached tho point where it mines
10,000,000 tons of coal a year.
Some competent engineers go so far
as to declare that the coal deposits
of China aro greater than those of
tho United States. The production
of coal in tho United States in the
banner year of 1907 was about 480,
000,000 tons and it never is very
much short of that figure.
China undoubtedly could produce
100,000,000 tons of coal a year with
out any unusual strain upon her
production abilities. Sho might,
with a comparatively small invest
ment, produce twice that amount,
The railroads now building will re
quire much more than the republic
can produce at present. The great
manufactories sho is seeking to es
tablish will bo operated by steam
power, therefore a greater impetus
is to be desired in tho coal mining
