Once Nearly Exterminated, They Ar
Now Bred by the Nobility.
Dutch belled cattle originated iu
Holland several liumlivil years ago.
At tbo time of the groat Holland wars
they were nearly exterminated by tho
invading arniii's, and (lie few that re
mained became the property of the no
bility, who have hied them pure ever
since, but do not willingly part with
them. They are known In Holland as
Voldlnrgers, which name menus "wrap
ped around with a sheet."
In color they are black, with n band
of pure white entirely around the body.
They may also have white fore feet,
white hind feet and logs up to tho
gambrcls nnd a white switch. The
"belt" varies In width. On some it Is
but a few inches wide. On others it
readies back on tho hips nnd forward
on the shoulders. Usually It covers the
body from just in front of the hips
nearly to the shoulders.
They have the prominent, eyes, thin
neck, silky hair, soft skin, elevated
flanks, broad hips, long, slim tails,
shapely, well placed udders, prominent
milk veins and so palled milk form,
which make up the dairy typo of cow.
They are very tame end docile, hardy
and vigorous. O. (!. Gibbs in Ameri
STOPPING THE EARTH.
It Would Generate Heat Enough to
Turn Our Globe to Vapor.
The stopping of a projectile always
results in the generation of heat. The
velocity and weight of a projectile be
lli;; known, the amount of heat devel
oped by its stoppage can lie calculated.
In the case of large bodies moving
rapidly Hie result of the calculation is
Tor example, the earth weighs 11.000,
000,000,000 tons if ml travels in its or
bit ut the rate of over eighteen miles
a second. Should It strike a target
strong enough to stop its motion the
heat developed by the shock would be
sufficient not merely to fuse t lie earth,
but also to reduce a large portion of it
to vapor. It has been calculated that
the amount of heat generated by a col
lision so eolossal would eipial that ob
tained from the burning of fourteen
globes of coal each equal to the eartli
And should the earth after its stop
page fall into the sun, as it certainly
would do, the amount of heat that
would be developed by its Impact on
the sun would be equal to that gener
ated by the combustion of 5,000 earths
of solid carbon.
It Is a very curious fact that a good
many people do not know that two
battles were fought ut Waterloo. Both
of these were fought against the
French, the first under the command
of the Duke of .Marlborough on Aug.
17, 1"05, who on this date actually oc
cupied the same ground as the Duke of
Wellington did a little more than a
century later, Juno 17. lSlo. the only
difference being that the former was
marching on Brussels and the latter
was marching from Brussels. In the
first battle the French were defending
Brussels. They inarched out to meet
Marlborough, but owing to the slack
ness on the part of Schlatigenburg, the
Dutch general, who was lighting with
him, it was not a success, Marlborough
only taking a few of tho French troops
as prisoners. The following one, fought
against Napoleon by Wellington, proved
to be one of the greatest victories ever
recorded in the annals of England.
On a Monday Morning.
Monday morning is a h.ir.l test for
the institution which we call life. Life
may be all very well on Saturday
night and Sunday morning, but how
about Monday morning? If you wake
up then with a pleasurable anticipa
tion of the week of work which Is
ahead of you. you are a happy man.
The instinct of the bad boy w ho plays
truant never quite dies out f us. One
dreams of a Monday morning when
the sun is shining and the air is clear,
of slipping quietly into one's clothes,
of tiptoeing softly out of the house,
of scaling the fence and crossing the
meadow and losing oneself in the al
luring woods, while time, clocks re
main unpunched and whistles blow in
vain. San Francisco Bulletin.

An Atl.v.ck ThH Wholly Demoralized
the Piot.san Rangers.
Colonel John S. Mos'.iy. commander
of the IVriisnn lungers, who gave
sui-h dishing erviie In the southern
e.n: .-o, lo.d ol an amusing incident in
hi li he figured.
In the summer of Isi'if when General
I 1 1 I Sheridan was in tile valley of the
Nhi'h.i ml". Ji lie found himself much
harassed by Mosby, who was continu
ally culling oil' his supply trains. An
army cannot light on an empty stom
ach, and Mosby knew it. One bright
morning .Mosby heard that a long sup
ply train was winding its way down
the valley. By noon the rangers In
their gray uniforms were gathered at
the forks of the valley pike, watching
for the head ef the wagon train to ap
pear. Presently a cloud of dust was seen
rising far up the road, nnd as the wind
blew it aside the Confederates caught
sight of a line of men In blue escorting
a caravan of lumbering wagons drawn
by mules. Instantly Mosby gave the
order to run a little howitzer up on the
side of a hill and uulimhcr it. As soon
as the gun had opened lire the rest of
the men were to make a cavalry charge
and throw the train Into confusion.
The rangers jerked the gun Into po
sition and began to swab it out. Sud
denly the man with the swab gave a
shrill yell, seized the seat of his panta
loons and fled down the hill and out
into the road. Almost in the same
moment the other man at the gun
abandoned it. lie seemed to be light
ing at the air as he disappeared over
a stone wall.
The sutler's wagons were creeping
nearer, and Mosby did not know what
to think of such extraordinary conduct.
He ordered four more men to the gun.
but haidly had they reached it when
they, too. yelled, began to beat the air
madly with their hats and took to
Spurring his horse over the stone
wall. Mos'iy rode toward the gun, but
his stay was short. The howitzer stood
just over a hornets' nest, and those
busy insects were resenting the intru
sion. They had repelled the invaders
on foot, and now they swarmed on
Mosby's horse till the maddened ani
mal tore off down the pike on a run.
Then they turned their attention to
the rest of the troop.
Their attack was so vicious that the
rangers gave up any idea of standing
by the gun. They scuttered far and
wide, and It was an hour before they
returned. When they did the wagon
train had snfely vanished iu the dis
tance. So the hornets saved the day
for Sheridan. Youth's Companion.
Where Science Fails.
Science has wrought many achieve
wonts, but it has not cleared up a sin
gle elemental mystery, and it has cre
ated a thousand lesser mysteries that
never were imagined until science
came. Science has demonstrated that
this oak of a world used to be an
acorn, but how that acorn came Into
existence or whence it obtained the
latent elements that now have become
nn oak science has not suggested. Sci
ence has made it possible for a manu
facturer to cut down three trees in
his forest at 7:33 in the morning, to
have thein made Into paper at 0:34 and
to have them selling on the street as
newspapers nt 10:23, but whether the
manufacturer himself is a brain that
has a mind or is a mind that has a
brain science cannot even guess. At
