?^ffrttSKY STORED fr* GERMANY.
/ Distillers Find It Cheaper Than 9if>
ing Taxes In This Country.
It is not generally known that Louis
ville distillers and warehouse men own
warehouses in Germany in which con
siderably more than a million gallons
of Kentucky whisky is stored and will
some time be returned to this state,
says the Louisville Herald.
The reason for storing whisky In
Germany is to save moriey, although
there may be the contributing reason
of securing a sea flavor. The natl'.ina)
law formerly provided that whisky
must be taken out of bond inside ol
three years, and the tax of $1.10 a gal
lon must be paid on it when taken out
It also provided that if whisky be ex
ported such tax would not have to be
paid on it at the time of the taking it
out, and, further, that it might be re
Imported upon payment of $1.10 a gal
lon. The duty on imported whisky
which is not made in America is $2.25.
Many distillers and warehousers
found it cheaper to export the whisky
and import it later than to borrow the
money for internal revenue taxes. An
erjormous quantity of whisky was then
sent abroad, and, as Germany is the
only country which will admit it with
out payment of a duty it was sent
there. Both Mexico and Canada im
pose a heavy duty. The distillers fig
ured that tne cost or transportation
both ways was cheaper than the inter
est on the money with which they
would have to pay taxes at the time.
They could keep the whisky stored in
Germany many years, or as long as
they wanted to, and bring it back in
small quantities, so they were not put
to the embarrassment of borrowing
very large amounts of money,for taxes.
Congress has since passed a law allow
ing whisky to remain in government
warehouses eight years before the in
ternal revenue taxes are paid.
Educating Children's Memory.
As children, part of the Jap's educa
tion is learning to Dotice. A tray with
a dozen things on it is given to the
child for a few minutes, when it is tak
en away from him and he is required
to repeat from memory the name ot
everything that was on the tray. Grad
ually the numbers of things are in
creased, and the time he is allowed to
look at them decreased, until noticing
becomes a habit, and in a single, cur
sory glance catches up the main idea
and details in an almost magical way.
One mother, who heard of the method,
?was so struck by Its simplicity and by
the value of quick observing that she
tried the experiments with her own
children?not with trays and objects,
but in their walks. She found that the
children develop splendid memories as
Odd Form of Coal.
One of Colorado's greatest discov

that state, where a deposit four and a
hah* feet in thickness has been pros
pected for two miles in extent and has
yielded coal in the strikingly peculiar
form of little cubes and hexagon
shaped columns. It separates easily,
the seams give off little dirt or dust, it
burns with a blue flame, retains heat a
long time and makes little ash.
It br-:aks to a small nut size and is
considered suitable for hard coal burn
ers and grates. Many regard the new
coal as one of the most valuable finds

King Christian's Palace.
Fredensborg, where year by year
King Christian's descendants gather in
patriarchal fashion, is about two hours'
distance by rail from the capital. The
palace contains about 400 apartments,
Including a vast-domed hall where din
ner is served every evening, and the va
rious suites of rooms devoted to the use

It is said that one of the simplest is

The blue buccaneers are among the
most voracious of all fish. Swift,
strong, armed with efficient teeth, they
possess unlimited appetites and they
know not the meaning of mercy or
fear. Most destructive of all our sea
fish, they rival the worst of the carniv
orous species of South American wat
ers. They are the wolves of the sea,
and very frequently they destroy for
what appears to be a mere love of
butchery. They move in large schools
and they never hesitate to attack fish
of almost twice their own size.

The area ravaged by flames consisted
Of 80 city blocks, or moro than 14U
seres, bounded by Liberty, Baiiuaore,
Fayeite, Lexington and Gay streets,
Jones' Falls to the water iront and
Pratt and Lombard streets. In ibis sec
tion wow 1.?S2 buildings, and with tne
excep?.nt of about 20 of them, every
one wad laid low either by flames or
by city officials in fighting the are, and
the section, which beiore the Are had
been the naest in the business district,
was left practically a territory of un
improved land, says the New York
Immediately after the fire Baltimore
began planning improvements, livery
utreet in the burned district was nar
row and unabie to accommodate tbe
city's rapidly increasing trade, and the
main thing planned wai? the widening
of these streets. Baltimore street, the
most important thoroughr&fe and the
dividing line of the north and south
streets, was not widened, though agita
tion of it held up improvements on the
thoroughfare for more than three
months and it was several times before
the city council. Business men who at
that time opposed the widening and
won their fight have in many instances
admitted they were at fault, but too
Ist?. In addition to widening streets,
the city made provision fbr a large
plaza on the west front of the court
house, a building which, cost nearly
$4,000,000, and is considered one of the
rery finest of its kind in the world.
The city has also planned to take pos
session of all the property south of
Pratt street and extending to the water
front. It will build''new docks and will
lease space on them to individuals and
corporations, a system similar to that
In vogue in New York city.
With the property condemned for the
Improvements named, there were actu
ally 95o lots upon which the habilita
Uon of the burned district depended,
and on these permits for 446 structures
have been issued or applied for. But
as these 446 permits in many cases rep-!
resent two or more lots, about 770 of
the 958 have been covered or will soon
be improved with new ouildings.
The tax assessments on ail the build
lugs which occupied all the 958 lots in
the burned dib.net before the fire
amounted to $10,840,975, which is $4,
093,145 less than the declared cost of
ihe new ones erected or now in course
AU of the buildings are as thorough
ly fireproof as man can mane them. It
is doubtful if any city in the country
has as many fireproof buildings at thia
time as Baltimore. In the construction
only improved methods were used, and
there are quite a number of buildings
about the city now that have not a
particle of wood in them. Practically
all of the new buildings have metal
window frames, with metal sasheo fit
ted with wire glass on the most ex
A large number of tbe new buildings
are of concrete construction. la facr,
there are now more concrete buildings
In Baltimore than in any other city in
the country. Builders say that this
has been found to be one of the best
methods of construction, being solid as
well as fireproof. Probably the largest
building constructed of concrete in Bai
time is the new home of the Baltimore
News. This building; occupies a large
lot on the southeast corner of Fsyette
and Calvert streets, and has Just been
completed. One warehouse is now be
ing erected which is entirely of con
crete, the ouside walls being dressed in
& manner closely resembling limestone,
r In rebuilding the city the general
tendency has been to erect buildings of
medium height rather than skyscrap
Despite the fact that the fire demon'
strated that wooden pavements will
burn, Baltimore has paved some of her
streets with wooden blocks since the
fire. The wooden blocks have been
used principally on the streets in tna
vicinity of the court house, it having
been found that they deaden the sound
of passing cars and wagons, which be
fore the fire was a source of great an
noyance. Most of the streets in the
burned uistrict have been paved with
Belgian blocks, however. J
