A Mountain In the Sky.
Somewhere many miles away from
this earth an enormous mountain
twenty miles high is flying through
space. The mountain ls known astro
nomically as the planet Eros. The or
dinary man has long taken lt for
granted that all the planets are more
or less round in shape. The small
planet Eros, however, is an exception
to this rule. According to the latest
astronomical information, lt ls a mere
mountain In space, "without form and
void," and as lt turns upon Its axis
first one corner and then another is
presented to view. .These small worlds
(few are over ten or twenty miles
across) are not large enough to have
sufficient gravity to draw their struc
ture Into symmetry and remain as
when launched into space-mammoth
meteorites. A tantalizing fact for as
tronomers ls that Eros passed very
close to us about Jan. 24, 1894-before
the planet was recognized-and that
quite so near an approach is not due
again till 1975.
The Mine's Blown Up.?
I was sitting on the edge of my bed,
loosening the heel of one of my rubber
boots with the toe of the other, when
suddenly through the stillness of the
sleeping town, from the power house
half a mlle away, came a low and ris
ing note, the great siren whistle in the
power house. Almost fascinated, 1
listened as the great note rose higher
and more shrill and died away again.
One blast meant a fire in the town, two
blasts fire in the buildings at tho mine
and three blasts, the most terrible of
all, a disaster or trouble In the mine
Once more, after an interminable
pause, the sound came again and once
more rose and died away. I did not
move, but there was a sudden cold
ness that came over me as once more,
for the third time, the deep note broke
out on the quiet air. Almost instan
taneously the loud jingle of my tele
phone brought me to my feet I took
down the receiver. "The mine's blown
up," said a woman's voice.-Atlantic.
The author of "Pat McCarty," a book
of verse with a setting of prose, shows
how naturally some of the Irishmen of
Antrim dilute the wine of narrative
with the water of verbiage- In the ex
cerpt below-'The Way ' We Tell a
Story"-the diluent ls used with a par
ticularly free hand:
Says I to him, I says, says I,
Says I to him, I says.

And onything I cud, I says,
I'd do, I wud indeed.
I don't know any man, I says,

As fast, I says, as for yoursel'.
That's tellln' ye no lie.
There's naught, says I, I wudn't do
To piase your feyther's son,
But this, I says, ye see, says I,

The Spectacled Bear.
The spectacled bear of Ecuador ls
so called .because of a patch of white
around each eye, which makes the
animal look as though he was peering
through a pair of great spectacles.
In size and general color the spec
tacled bear looks not unlike the Ameri
can black bear. But its hair is very
shaggy. At each side of the head is a
white bar, which gives the animal the
appearance of wearing a halter. But
the most distinctive feature is the
white around the eyes.
