was the fascina

that she had kept
on, and was now
putting the plcof

Sadie alone was
not encrossed In

by the window, absorbed in a bright
colored circular. Other circulars like

peeped from her handbag.

Junction at 1:18, and from there "
"Mercy, how complicated," said Ma
bel. "Yes, that would be," assented Sadie.
"I think perhaps I would prefer tho

you can have a wonderful time there if
you go to one of the houses in the
country where they take visitors and
then hire a bicycle and see the island

'How long Is your vacation?" asked
Mabel, In her practical way.
"Two weeks," said Sadie.
"How much money are you going to
spend on your trip?"
"Not more than twenty-five dollars,
anyway," said Sadie.
"Well, I don't believe you can go to
Bermuda or Nova Scotia or Newfound

"Of course, 1 can't," said Sadie. "I
am only planning my vacation. I al
ways plan it every year, and then I
go spend two weeks with my grand
mother who lives on a farm In Mlllls,
Mass. But at least I have the fun of
making believe I'm going somewhere
With this vacation confession, the
train stopped, and the girls rolled up

the throne came through his mother,
the electress Sophia of Hanover, who
was a granddaughter of James I. The
most conspicuous figure in the reign
of George 1 was Sir Robert Walpole,
who was the first prime minister of
England. The fact that George could
speak no English, while his ministers
could speak no German, taken with
the other fact that the king preferred
to spend much of his time in Hanover,
gave to the office of prime minister,
that Walpolo wua the first to hold, tho
character that It has since retained.

A darky down in Georgia, in a

holding court as a magistrate for tho

This was his charge to the jury:

Sloepy Guest Sues Hotel.
Should hotel keepers be held re
sponsible for losses Incurred by their
patrons because of the failure of hotel
servants to wake them In time?
This question has been brought be
fore the Berlin courts in a suit by a
commercial traveler, who declares that
he missed a number of important busi
ness appointments because a hotel por
ter failed to call him.
The case has not yet been settled,
but the Berlin hotel keepers have de
cided to protect themselves by post
ing in every room a notice that the
management declines respon&lbllty
for late rising by its patrons.
Sheffield Cutlery Lags.
Sheffield is famed throughout the"
world for its cutlery, but this is no
longer the city's chief or even second
ary industry. In the finest clasa of
cutlery Sheffield probably still excels,
but good scissors from Germany are
now sold in the English town for less
money than the grinding of tho com
peting article alone costs in Sheffield.
The leading cutlery firm, doing a
world export trade, operates without
the uee of a telephone, and another,
of equal fame, occupies quarters of
the most primitive character. It is
in the production of armaments and
ship material that Sheffield now
stands to the fore.

SECRET OF RADIUM'S ENERGY
Particles Shot From It Aro Declared
to Travel Through Atmosphere
at Speed of Light.
The energy, or power, of a moving
object is proportional to Its weight
and Its velocity. A motorcycle run
ning at 80 miles an hour will striko
as hard a blow as a two-ton truck
moving at three miles an hour. A
small caliber high-power rifle bullet
will striko as hard as a ton weight
traveling at slow spded. Microscopic
bodies traveling at high velocities
have an energy equal to that of much
heavier bodies traveling slowly.
This is tho reason radium possesses
bucIi enormous energy. The particles
shot out from it are microscopically
small, but they travel with the speed
of light, or 186,000 miles a second. It
has been well said that a spider's web
running ever pulleys at the speed of
light would give enough energy to run
all the machinery in England. A small
stream of water under great pressure
will tear down a mountain more rap
idly than a slow-running river.
With this in mind it is easy enough
to understand how electricity travel
ing at the rate of 186,000 mllos a sec
ond is capable of transmitting thou
sands of horsepower over a copper
wire no larger than a lead pencil.
