The Pelican Stars won from the El- as

expect to be in good shape for the conm- cr

JOSEPH L. COLLINS WEST POINT ar
CADET. so
th
pe
as
Joseph Lawton Collins, 1475 Calhoun to
street, a nephew of Mayor Behrman &
and Peter S. Lawton, has been appoint- st
ed to West Point, and will leave Satur- a
day by the Southern Pacific steamer kc
for New York.
Young Collins is but seventeen years
of age. He is the son of the late J. B. pig
Collins. Notwithstanding the advice ju
of his relatives and friends that he is ah
too young to begin the severe duties dr
at the military academy, he persisted mE
in his ambition. He was appointed by 10
Congressman Dupre as an alternate,
and upon notice to attend an examina
tion, which he passed successfully, m
both physically and mentally. th
Young Collins was one of the bright- So
est pupils of the Boys' High School, tol
from which he was graduated. He th
took honors there as a debater. After
,receiving a sound fundamental educa- trw
tion at the Boys' High School, he went I
for one year to Louisiana State Uni- sit
versity. Last week he received the cli
alumni medal there for making the Tl
highest percentage of all the cadets. hI
He also attended school, as a boy, at
the convent school in Algiers.
Young Collins will be the second of as
his family to enter the military ser- pt
vice. His brother is Lieut. James L as
Collins of the United States cavalry, by
who is now serving as an aide to Gen. It,
Pershing in the Philippines.
THE TUDOR THEATRE. ar
de
One of the most beautiful interiors O
that have ever been shown in any thea- hi
tre in the city of New Orleans is now it
exhibited in the new Tudor Theatre, al
the last production of the Pearce's. We
cannot say that it is a novelty, for that
would not express nor would it give a
fair description of the decorations, but bl
that the entire arrangement is a work ge
of art will be recognized at once by pr
those who have an artistic eye and will r
be admired with wonder by those who
merely take in at a glance beauty of
construction.
The lighting is mso much out of the
ordinary as to cause special comment g
and notwithstanding that faces are th
readily recognised from one end of the at
house to the other and that the beauti ea
ful palintings end frescoes may also be
admired, still therem i no interference
with viewing the motion pletures.
Added to this grand place is the big b
pipe organ, which furnishes that mu
sic, which is so essential to the enjoy
ment of motion pictures. Mr. Pearce, as
Jr., whom we are informed is the orig- P
Inator of the pecaliar construction, doe
serves special compliments for what
he has done and there is but little
doubt but what the decorations as well
uas the general makeup of the theatre a
will be readily copied. To make an ad
improvement to this interior would be of
to take from it some of its magnif.- 7
cence. It must be seen to be appreci
ated. It is a credittothecity of New
Orleans. It is a credit to Mr. Pearce,
who deserves the congratulations of
his fellow citizens.

DARK, DEAD STARS
1 Millions on Miflions of Them Are
Flying Through Space.
THE PERILS OF A COLLISION.
What Would Happen if One of the Lar
ger of These Erratic Derelicts Should
Whirl Itself Into Our Solar System.
1- The Birth of a Nebula.
Possibly it has never occurred to
many people that there are such bodies
I. as dark stars, but so great an authority
as Sir Robert Ball has said that the
* dark stars are to the bright for num
bers as the cold horseshoes in existence
are to the red hot ones. For every such
hot one there must be many hundreds
- of cold ones, so that if the simile is
t sound the heavens must contain an in
1- credible number of these derelicts on
n the ocean of space, which, having lived
e their life, have grown cold and dead,
but are still racing about at star speed
until in their wanderings they meet
some other heavenly body in terrific
s collision.
I. Such gigantic catastrophe as the
tf clash of two suns, each perhaps mil
e lions of miles in diameter, rushing at
each other at the rate of twenty or
1- thirty or even more miles per second
would result, so the mathematicians
tell us, in a world splitting explosion
- exactly as if each were composed of
billions of billions of tons of gunpow
1. der, and as when gunpowder explodes
0 nothing is left but gas and smoke, so
in the clash of stars nothing would be
left of the two great solid bodies which
had collided but an immense whirling
mass of incandescent gas called a
nebula, of which, as most people know,
1: there are quite a number dotted over
the heavens. This maelstrom of gas
1. would sail about among the stars for
i. ages, in the course of which it would
naturally cool down and condense into
a star system much like our own, with
probably a central sun, planets and
moon.
Some of these would sooner or later
V arrive at a condition of temperature
suitable for the support of life and as
the centuries passed would become
peopled with sentient beings. Grad
ually they would grow too cold for life
a to exist and finally become frigid, cold.

t- stars visible to the naked eye is only
r- a few thousands. With the best tele
r scope and other instruments it is cal
caulated we can detect about a hun
dred millions-not a large number
(there are fifteen times as many peo
ple as that living on this globe); but,
e Judging by Sir Robert Ball's horse
Sshaboe simile and reckoning only a hun
a dred dark ones to every bright one, we
d may take it that there must be at least
10,000.000.000 dark stars chasing about
in space, most of which we have never
seen and probably never will see.
I say most of which, for perhaps It
may come as a surprise to some that
the earth we live in is a dark star.

very small masses of matter flying
about in space. They are quite cold

For every one we see there must be
many thousands whose paths miss us
entirely, ships that pass in the night,
silently and unknown. Some of these
are of immense magnitude and are un
doubtedly regular in their coarse.
SOthers are doubtless flying about the
r- heavens on haphazard paths, and it

Lured to Destruction.
The inhabitants of the Scilly islands
in the old days looked upon the oc
currence of a wreck as a blessing of
providence, and stories are extant
about thanks being offered for a wreck
ud in various parts of the country.
Some of the stories told us by the
)m islanders themselves, says Country
Life, show that there was an almost
,t diabolical cleverness in the way in '
which the storm tossed mariner was
lured to destruction. For example, it
he was common to burn false lights, that
were calculated to bring the ships on o
Lte the rocks Instead of warning them o
iel away, and worse, even, than this was P
er, done. t
)- There was at one time a gang of
wreckers, who, when a storm was ti
brewing, fastened a bright light to the o0
ry. horns of a cow and sent her to graze
um along the cliffs, to the bewilderment 0o
sV- and deception of the sailors. Needless h
ch to say, this spirit has entirely changed
now. ti

London's Destructive Atmosphere. u
The smoke and soot that are always ft
ho in the atmosphere (there are 6,.000 tons a

day) contain lots of sulphur, and this b'
le- sulphur when it meets certain sub
eir stances forms sulphuric acid or vitriol. a8

sir that brought the great roof of Charing b
Cross station down with a crash a few tl
lre years ago. The engine smoke had eat- g'
en away the iron, which was insuffi
clently painted. And some years ago, a
before the London underground was P
electrified, it was a great joke at one n
of the stations for passengers to go and "'
poke umbrellas into a certain iron
he girder, which at one point was nearly
eras soft as putty. Paint is in such cases n'
af- the engineer's great standby. In some
n- ways paint is more powerful than iron. n

to be practically held together by paint. r

A TERRIBLE
SUSPENSE
By EDWARD L BISSELL
How Iperisons whe daIily wiork 4ar
ties with it the safety of lie lives of
other i'ers'lons ever eij 'amitue a: l t~urnllit d
to it I don't know. I hale been -ne
of tI heml. and I couldn't 1d it, tlhough I
conlfetss I haid anii experietce that took lik
away all my ciilidetce. TITSse, I re
fer to a-e elginlliers pi,,rt :al id the li
like. I was ai drlggult. I was oblliged
to lput up Prescription all day ianid of
ten at night. Most of themt-i were harml
less, but in somle were ingllredienlits cal
culated if gitven in large eougll dohtses
to kill. We had a system about the i4
Ipoisons. but I defy any systeml ever
invented to work every titme. Soonler
or later somethinlg will go wrong
with it.
I was putting iup a poison one diay
for verlllil killing iurposes. I hald lan
ergagement to meet my wife at a rail
way station at a certain houlr to go to
the country with our little boy, who
was ill and who we feared was slowly
dying. It is such situations as this
that will break through systems aid
cause accidents. I had just so many
minutes to reach my train and put up
two irescrliptions, the one a poison,
the other harmless. My mind was pre
occupied. If I should not reach the
station In time my wife with our sick
child would be in great distress. I
was thinking of her while I was doing
my work and delivering the packages
to the two different persons. who were
waiting for them This done. I seized
my hat and ran for the station.
I barely reached it in time, and, hav
ing put my family aboard the train,
sat down beside them, mopped my
brow and my mind settled back to
what I had been doing before I left
the store. A horrible suspicion came
to me. I doubted if I had not given
the poison to the wrong person. An
other suspicion followed on the heels
of the first. Hlad I not neglected to
paste the label marked "Poison" on
the bottle?
My first Impulse was to jump off the
train, though it was moving at a rate
of fifty miles an hour. This, of course,
I controlled. I must remain for no
one knew how long in suspense. I
had intended to stay a week with my
wife in the country before leaving her
there, but I now resolved to return
the next day. If the blow was to fall
upon me I preferred that it should
fall while I was at my post than
when away. Besides, I hoped that
work would help to relieve me of the
burden on my mind.
Not being willing to give my wife an
additional trouble, I refrained from
confiding to her my horrible susplcion.
but I told her that we were so busy at
the store that I would be obliged to
go back the next day. This in itself
was a bitter disappointment to her.
and when the time came for my de
parture my boy was so ill that I lost
much of my worry on account of my
suspected blunder in my worry about
him.
Several days passed, and I heard
nothing indicating that any one had
taken poison, though I studied the
newspapers regularly, seeking for
what I feared to find. Then it occur
red to me that the poison might have
been taken, but the one who had swal
lowed it saved. The blunder might
have been reported at the store; but. er
owing to my distressing situation. TI
they might for a time withhold the at
facts.
A week passed. My boy was much
better, and I returned to the city. On
the way while scouring a newspaper G
as usual my eye fell on a heading, M
"Fatal Mistake of a Druggist" I J.
could read no more. I covered my S(
eyes with my hands and groaned. '
Thrice I tried to muster up courage to i
read my fate. but was unable to do so
and at the end of my journey left the
newspaper in the train. Time enough
to know all that had happened when Ci
I go to the store. M
When I went to the store there was .M
no evidence of anything having hap
pened. I didn't dare ask about the
case of poisoning I had seen in the I
newspaper, for the druggist might not
have been located, and there was no
use in giving myself away. But I to
worried all the same. pa
The two customers to whom I had or
given the medicine were an old man fi
and a young woman. The poison w as
intended for the man, the ordinary
dose for the young woman. I believed se
I had given her the poison. Her fea- fo
tures were firmly fixed on my mind, fo
though I had never seen her before,
she being not a regular but a casual t
customer. I did not suppose that she ,
was getting the medicine for herself, at
for she was the picture of health.
One morning I heard the store door
elose, and, looking up. there was this
woman coming straight for me. My
imagination pictured her with an ae
cusation of murder in her eye. My
heart stopped beating. I stood waiting
for the blow to fall. She stood before L
me on the other side of the counter. 04
With an effort I controlled myself. T
though I am sure I was deadly pale.
"Did you sell me some medicine O
