Heatstroke and Sunstroke.
Heatstroke and sunstroke are terms
usually applied indifferently to either
of two quite distinct conditions, to
each of which only one of the names
properly applies. Heatstroke, as its
name impies, is a condition caused by
the action of' excessive heat, either the
torrid heat of summer or the artificial
heat of a foundry, a furnace,.the stoke
hole of a steamship, etc. It occurs
with almost as great frequency at
night as In the day, and its victims
may be overcome on a cloudy day or
without having ventured from their
homes. The other form, properly call
ed sunstroke, is due to the direct ac
tion of the sun-probably of its ultra
violet or chemical rays rather than of
its heat -rays. Only those who have
been long exposed to the dircet rays of
the sun, such as soldiers on the march,
harvesters, ball players, etc., are the
subjects of true sunstroke.-Dr. T. L.
Stedman in Good Housekeeping.
Karlstrom says flowers have under
standing and know when persons care
for them. He says they respond to a
loving touch and to a caress. The
Swedish collector touches flowers af
fectionately as he walks through his
greenhouse and insists they have a
language for those who understand.
He points to a flower with drooping
head and says it is calling for water.
In different ways, he explains, flowers
ask for light, warmth, sunshine, and
.when satisfied the flowers lift up their
heads buoyantly and express the pure
joy of being. Karlstrom advises. the
'study of flowers through magnify
ing glasses, saying their beauty is
not half appreciated ofherwise. A
flower under the glass, he asserts, re
veals remarkable beauty and if taken
to pieces discloses wonders never ap
precated-New York Press.
A Sensitive Horse.
Harsh treatment, though it stop
short of inflicting physical pain, keeps
a nervous horse in a state of misery.
A. single blow may be enough to spoil
a racer. Daniel Lambert, founder of
the Lambert branch of the Morgan
family, was thought as a three-year
old to be the fastest trotting stallion
of his day. He was a very handsome,
stylish, Intelligent horse and also ex
tremely sensitive. His driver, Dan
Mace, though one of the best reins
men In America, once made the mis
take, through Ill temper or bad judg
ment, of giving Daniel Lamnbert a se
vere cut with the whip, and that sin
gle blow put an end to his usefulness
as a trotter. He became wild and un
governable In harness and remained
so for the rest of his life.
How Kangaroos Fight.
Kangaroos are distributed over all
parts of Queensland. The "old man,"
or fully grown male, is mostly found
on downs and In open forest country.
An "old man" sometimes grows to the
height of sir feet and when hunted
into a rocky gorge or corner will turn
and face Its pursuer. It Is a formi

mode of fighting is to clasp Its enemy

Extremes of Temperature.
Science reasons that the lowest tem
peratures at the earth's surface are
ot found directly at the poles, but at
1:sie distance to the south of the
iorth pole and to the north of the
south pole. Likewise the greatest de
gree of heat is not, as might be sup
posed, to be found at the equator, but
prevails at some distance to the north
ind to the south of that imaginary
ine. The coldest place on the earth's
surface of which there is authentic
record is in Siberia. The lowest tem
perature ev'r recorded in the open air
was I0 degrees below zero F. at Wer
:bajansk. central Siberia, on Jan. 15,
18. The highest temperature of
which thr-re is an authentic record is
124 degrees abore zero F. in Algeria,
orthern Africa, on July 17, 1879.
rhese places of extreme heat and ex
treme cold give a range of tempera
ture covering the whole inhabited
world of 214 degrees, or two degrees
more than from zero to the boiling
Don't Breathe Lazily.
"If you are consumptive, if you think

Killed by a Shout.
A joyful shout thoughtlessly given
by an Italian smuggler on having
eluded the customs gaards on the
Swiss frontier was the cause of his
six companions being killed by an
valanche. The party, coming from
the Grisons, had, with a thousand pre
mautions, successfully negotiated the
Forcola pass on the Swiss-Italian bor
er. Five of the men were loaded
with valuable contraband goods, and
two acted as guides and scouts. When
they were all safely on Italian soil one
