This cut Is said to have been author

the cabmen themselves, who hope by
this means to popularize this mode of

LOCATED ON BOUNDARY LINE
t Town That la Half In tho State of
' Vermont and Half In Prov-
f Inco of Quebec.
There is a town called Beebe Plain,
Which stands half hvthe state of Ver
mont and half In the province of Que
bec. The post office was built about
1630 exactly on the boundary land lino
between tho United States and Can
ada. Standing in two countries, the post
office belongs to the postal service of
the two nations. Tho cellar connects'
the two countries. In the days
not very long ago when the post office
was a general store, whisky was
known to be sold In ono country and
delivered in tho other without ever
having gone from under tho roof of tho
Standing In front of this strange
post office is a largo post which marks
the boundary line. It Is said tnat one
time a man who wanted to get a road
way to his premises moved this post,
and many thousands of dollars and no
little time had to be spent to establish
the exact line again.
Cauaes of Climatic Change.
Tyndall was one of tho first to sug
gest that the cause of the great
changes that the climate of the earth
has undergone in the past might con
ceivably be the formation of thin can
opies of gas In the atmosphere, ca
pable of transmitting the luminous
$eat of the sua, but Impervious to the
dark heat rays radiated back from
the earth. Wheeler, seeking a new
explanation of the glacial periods,
suggests that such canopies could be
formed by the fall of rings of matter
external to the atmosphere. Being
afterward resolved into belts, they
might give rise to strong climatic
zones, until their final disappearance
by descent to the earth In the form
of dust He plcturesquuly suggests
that primitive man saw the latest
cloud belts, which guve rise to the
myths of serpents twined about the
Starlight Drives Motor.
A motor driven by starlight tins
been invented by an American scien
tist, Dr. W. W. Coblentz of Washing
ton, D. 0., says the Mentor Magazine.
So sensitive Is the Instrument, which
measures heat radiation from the
stars, that it will detect an electric
current of onc-bllllonth of an ampere.
Or, to put it more graphically, It Is
possible to measure the heat given
off by the most distant star by means
of electricity generated by Its heat
If tho heat from a certain nebula
composed of 103 stars, hundreds of
millions of milca from the earth, were
concentrated on sixty drops of water
for a hundred years, the temperature
of the water would be raised one de
gree only, Doctor Coblentz says.
' Burglars Laugh at Police.
Tho wildest fiction writer would not
have dared to put it in a story, but
Scotland Yard Itself was visited by
burglars tho other day. The sacro
sanct homo of criminal justice, which
no stranger can enter without being
asked his business nt every turn, was
thought to be the one placo thieves
would let alone, but early morning
visitors entered the lost property
room within n few feet of a score
or moro of reserves, apparently pass
ing right by a man patrolling outside
and got away with several hundred
dollars worth of valuables.
