British gold built the Smithson
ian institution at Washington.
Jamect Smithson, a disappointed
and disheartened nobleman, tl) nat
ural son of the duko of Northumbcr-
j land, made his will in 1636, and in
It he bequeathed all hi property to
his nephew, Henry James Hunger
ford, providing that it should go. to
his childrca, whether legitimate or
illegitimate, but containing a far
ther clause ia which It th stated
that if ho died without issue, or if
his children died under the age of
twenty-one or intestate, then the
whole of his property, subject to a
small annuity to a faithful servant,
should go to tho United States "to J
found at. Washington, Tinder the
name of tho Smithsonian institu
tion, an establishment for the in
crease and diffusion of 'knowledge
among men." Smithson died in
1829, and his nephew died six years
later at Piso, leaving no heirs. Pres
ident Jackson declared he had ho'au
thority to receive the money and re
ferred the matter to congress. The
necessary authorization was recom
mended by both the senate and,
house committees, but was not
passed by the two houses until after
a bitter debate.

Thunderstorms never occur in the
Arctic regions. Nearer the equator
the more severe are tho electric manifestations.
In certain parts of Africa the av
erage run of thunder storms is 250
days a year, yet there are some very
curious exceptions. In Sumatra and
Java, hoth very hot climates, there
are only 92 storms yearly, and in
Borneo only ahout 50. The Gold
Coast of Africa has only about 60
a year, which is far less than occur
in Florida, though the latter country
is outside the tropics.
I Java there is a thunder storm
every day for five months. Perhaps
the most astonishing fact in regard
to thunderstorms is that the island
of Mauritius, which, is onlv 550
miles east of Madagascar, has on an,
average only one thunder storm in
Yet in Madagascar the lightning
is more destructive than anywhere
else in the world, the annual num
ber of deaths being more than 300.

The manufacture of "rope" horse
shoes in Germany is now a flourish
ing business and all who have "used
the new invention are highly pleased
with it. The shoe is described as
light and comfortable for the horse,
that they prevent horses from slip
ping, and that they break the con
cussion and deaden the sound of the
hoof. In addition to the plain tarred
rope horseshoes there are shoes in
which rope interwoven with wire,
wood, rubber, copper, wirework and
rush is used. These are heavier and
somewhat more expensive and less
practical than the plain rope shoes,
and, therefore, have not become so
well established. .

A Magazine Which Never Dis
appoints. Lippincott's can always be relied
on for gool fiction fiction which is
not only clever in form, but which
a vastly more important item
touches live sentiment, The Octo
oer issue is noteworthy in several re
spects. For one, it contains 8 com
plete novelette of swift movement
and compelling interest, by a famous
British author, H. B. Marriott Wat
son, whose books. "Hurricane
island." "Tho Big Fish," and a
dozen more, have won him deserved
success on both Bides of the Atlantic.
-His new story, "The Picaroon,"
describes the surprising things that
happened to an audacious; resource
ful young yachtsman who believed
in taking 'shor cuts" when he want
ed anything. In this instance, he
gets what be desires, although he
has to surmount many formidable
obstacles first. The heroine is a
Countess as well as an extremely
nice girl, and we don't in the least
blame the hero for seeking to win
her, although we may not altogether
approve of his viking-like methods.
