No Reward For a Tin Mini,
For some unknown reason there Is a
widely :prevalent idea that the United
States offers a reward for the disror

asking about this supposed reward,
Where the rumor started Is unknown,
but it seems to be fostered by uns
scrupulous or Ignorant persons who

HIS'PAST DIDN'T BOTHER HIM.
When Swinburne Was Very Close Unto
Death by Drowning.
In Mr. Edmund Gosse's reminiscent
article. "Swinburne at Etretat " In the
Cornhill Magazine he relates the poet's
bathing adventure that nearly cost
him his life in the late summer of
1868. The timely appearance of a fish
ing smack on the scene prevented the
premature silencing of the voice that
was presently to entrance the world
for some part of its with the "Songs
s Before Sunrise."
"I asked him." writes Mr. Gosse.
"what he thought about In that dread
ful contingency. and be replied that
he had no experience of what people
often profess to witness the concen
trated panorama of past life hurrying
across the memory. He did not re
feet on the past at all He was filled
with annoyance that he bad not finish
ed his 'Songs Before Sunrise- and then
with satisfaction that so much of it
was ready for the press and that Maz
zini would be ples:aed with him.
"And then he continued. '1 reflected
with resignation that I was exactly
the same age as Shelley was when he
was drowned. (This however. was
not the case. Swinburne had reach
ed that age in March. 1867 but this
was part of a curious delusion of
Swinburne's that he was younger by
two or three years than his real age.'
Then when be began to be. I suppose.
a little benumbed by the water his
thoughts fixed on the clothes he had
left on the beach. and he worried his
clouded brain about some unfinished
verses-In the pocket of his coat."

Not Sulphur at All. Only the Pollen

Many persons are aware that in

it happens that after a shower the

streets and along the sidewalks will be
bordered by a rim of pale yellow color.
As the water evaporates this ring re

rise to the name "sulphur showers."
This so called sulphur Is. of course. not

Instead of consisting of a single cell.

When you are perspiring furiously In

James Dewar, a field of wheat per

METALS AND MICROBES.
In Some Instances Contact Means
Death to the Germs.
Experiment seems to show that there
are certain metals which are capable
,f destroying microbes that come in
'ontact with them.
The microbes experimented with were
ultivated for the purpose in jelly
;pread on a plate. and pieces of metal
were dropped upon the jelly while It
was still moist.
Any metal that had the property of
irresting the development of the mi
'robes destroyed them. not only just
ander the place where it lay, but for
a narrow space around It. The width
'f this space varied both with the kind
if metal and the kind of microbe.
Pure gold. when freshly cleaned and

'robes. Pure nickel and platinum and
few other metals also failed to af

Gratetui Scots ani. tne Bagpipes.
What Scot ever called the pipes a
musical instrument? asks Harper's
Weekly. In the old wicked days bands
of predatory English marched over the
border. They were as bold and sturdy
as the Scots and far greater In num
ber Cluny MacWhauppert. the laird
of Glengarramoyle. In desperate need
of a sure defense invented the pipes in
secret and never let a skirt out of
them till he faced the invading Sas
senach on the bloody field Then
Cluny blew a melody so fierce. so
eldritch. so grinding and blistering to
the soul. that every clansman ripped
and slashed his way through the Eng
lish hordes. intent on only one thing
to escape the fiendish screeching of
the pipes. And that is why every I
grateful Scot to this day cherishes the

dependence. ie has beaten his sword
