meeting addresses were made by the
different members, and local speakers.
On Sunday the visitors were taken
to points of interest on Central Maui,
and in the afternoon the ascent of
Haleakala was made. They witnessed
a very good sunset, but that is about
all they did see from the summit, for

Like a Lake of Flame.
One of the most remarkable of the
hot springs In the Yellowstone Na
tional park Is Firehole lake, in which
flames seem to oppear In the water.
These flames are seen from only two
points, and should the wind be causing
a disturbance of the water tho tourist
may not son them nt all. At the east
ern end of this small lake is a clrculnr
opening of n deep seated spring not
tinlike other vents of thermal waters.
Through thl9 vent which usually
stands full of clear, transparent water,
numerous bubbles of mingled air and
superheated steam rise gradually. Be
fore reaching the surface they unite to
form one large mass that In its upward
passage strikingly resembles a flame
of fire. This continues until the bub
ble bursts, only to be followed by a
repetition of the phenomenon. The
explanation is that the slightly agi
tated water 1b reflected in the thin

The phenomena are far better seen at
Firehole lake than elsewhere, but un
der favorable conditions they may be
seen at other localities, but in a far
less striking manner.
One of the oldest ond most curious
of existing industries is the making of
narrow rings or bracelets, called ban
gles, from the chunk, or sacred shell of
the Hindus. This conch Turklnella
pyrum, Linn. Is found chiefly at a
depth of about two fathoms in the gulf
of Mauaar, and about 2.000,000 of the
Bhclls are exported annually to Cal
cutta. So important Is the bangle of
the Hindu women that J. Hornell,
representing the Madras government
has specially investigated the industry.
Tracing the early history of chank or
naments, Mr. Hornell is unable to as
sign prehistoric specimens in the Ma
dras museum to the later stone age, as
had been previously done, but believes
marks on some of them were made by
metal Implements. He has found, how
ever, remains of ancient bangle facto
ries scattered over the greater part of
India. Bangle cutting Is now confined
almost entirely to Bengal, and It proves
to be in flourishing condition In spite
of the growing taste for gold orna

Origin of the Argentine Flag.
Mr. Fraser, in telling of the origin of
the Argentine flng, says: "The em
phatic patriotism of the American Is
tepid alongside the hot blooded nation
ality of Argentina. It is dally inculcat
ed In the schools; the blue and white
striped flag is honored on every occa
sion. When the Argentines were in rev
olution against Spain In 1810 and need
ed a banner to flaunt against the red
and orange of the enmv they got pieces
of blue and white cloth Intended for
garments from an English warship
lying at Montevideo and made a flag of
it So the Argentine flag, like much of
Argentine prosperity, is due to Great
Britain." Mr. Fraser holds that In pro

many millionaires in Argentina as in

Speaker of the House of Commons.
With all bis authority the speaker of
the house of commons respects the
house and the house respecti the
speaker. That Is tho very essence of
order in the institution which hns won
the title cf the mother of parliaments.
In his book, "The Speaker of the
Ilouse," Michael Macdonagh describes
the origin and romantic history of the
speakership. This office, which holds
so many pitfalls, is treated as one of
great honor and dignity. A salary of
5,000 ($25,000) n year, a palatial resi
dence and a retiring pension of 4,000
($20,000) a year, with a peerage, are
tho distinctions the nation bestows on
the first commoner In England. Dur
ing tho parliamentary session the
speaker gives two full dress levees and
seven full dress dinners. Of the many
ancient perquisites of the olUce only
two, Mr. Macdonough tells us, now
