New African Coal Fields.
New coal lields have been discov
ered in Zambesi, Africa, and a series
of tests which have been made have
proved eminently satisfactory. Tne
tests were carried out by a Belgian
engineer, on the Beira and Mashona
land railways, at tne municipal power
station, Beira, and at the harbor by
the port dredger, and in all instances
the results were excellent, the coal
showing satisfactory calorific value,
burning with a clear, bright flame,
and leaving very little ash. The suc
cess of the tests and the fact that the
developments show many millions of
tons ready to be mlfed, while the
measures probably reach to within
four miles of the Zambesi, indicate
that a great coal field lies within a
coinpmjratively few miles of Beira.

fields to the port of Betra, assuring
the success of the Tlans-Zambesl,

1 LOUISE'S CAR N
By ELIZABETH M'NAUGHT "
©, 15Z2, by McClute Newspaper Syndicate. ha
The streets were treacherously icy iW
and the heels on the patent leather a
pumps of Louise's Sunday and every
day shoes were high. Gingerly, she
tripped along,. pausing momentarily at
the junction of three automobile in
fested streets to await an opportunity st
to gain the other side.
Glaring headlights were to the right
of her, more to the left and countles>d h
more behind and beyond.
Life had been a struggle for Louise;
it still was, yet she realized that her
present mode of living in a single fur
nished room, with housekeeping privi- fu
leges, was really an upward step. She
was at least happy, and-well, what
more could one desire?
"'For the love of Pete, look out !"
roared a hoarse voice, almost in her ý
ear. Something terrible had happened
to something and Louise knew she was
the Something. The girl's mind was
quite clear, She knew she was lying in
the mud, ignominiously, like a stray
cat, and her fur coat was likely ruined; T
and then it came to her that the kind- I
est, sweetest voice she had ever heard
was consoling her and two very willing
arms were making frantic efforts to e
retrieve her befurred, perhaps dis- o
membered, anatomy from the mud. a
"Poor little girl," he was saying, "it a
was all my fault," and then most stern- c
ly, "Let her alone, you; I'll take care t
He placed her among the velvet d
cushions in the large tonneau of his I
magnificent car and a moment later
the girl knew she was being rushed to c
the hospital. She cast a critical eye
over the interior of the car. A hum
mer, to be sure, she thought, and just
her luck, too. Her eyes glanced' to
ward the proud head, yet he was not a
too proud to drive his own car.
Her charming Sir Galiahad did not
desert her as abruptly as she had ex
pected. In fact, he returned to the
hospital day after day to inquire about
the fractured ankle. He was the quiet,
"They tell me you may go home to
morrow," he announced by way of
greeting one morning, "and, honestly,
"So'm I," replied Louise, and an ex
pression of extreme sadness overshad
owed the thin, piquant face, "very,
"Sorry? Why?" he asked in sur
3"Oh, Just because-" she hesitated,
and he, noticing a very small tear
quivering on the black eyelash, made a
hasty departure, flinging back buoy
-antly, "Well, so long. I'll see that you
get home safely and comfortably."
That would be the end, thought*
When the girl faced the large ma
chine the following day it seemed evenc
Imore formidable than her Imagination
-or her memory of it conceived.
Very few words were spoken during
the trip, malinly because of the fact
Sthat he was without a chauffeur and
1so wM once again forced to drive the
car. Louise was glad that he at least
was not a parasite. In no time at all
be was helping her up the gray stone e
steps that led to her front door.
gSuddenly, almost impulsively, he ~
asked, "Say, would you go to the mov
ieswith me some night?"
"Go to the movies?" in amazement.
"Oh, of course, if you don't care for i
the movies rll get tickets for sym
phony, or anywhere you say. I per
Isonally like the movies, but it's more
or less habit. Having little time to
spare, I run in when things get too
"When things get too dull?" she re
gpeated. Then, eagerly, "Please, just'
what do you do?"
"I'm a taxi driver."
"Well, I'll be jiggered I" In relief,;
Sthe girl's tired expression changed to
repose and she was very sweet and
Sappealing in her natural mood of
;laughing and crying and talking all In
one breath. "And I thought you were
rich and educated and oh, ever so
wealthy and as far above me as the
moon, and now, isn't that a hummer?"
*she demanded, pointing to the car.
"Huuimer nothing! But that's my

mer. I practically made it myself.
It boasts parts from every second-hand
shop in the city, I can't very well

rethe depths of his raccoon shoulder.

FLASHLIGHTS START BEE WAR

"If," said Miss Lucile B. Berg, nat.
uralist, dabbing baking soda on a
half score red bumps on hand and
wrist, "there is one thing a law-abid- I
ing, industrious honey bee loathes, it's I
"How come?" inquired an inquirer,
lifting polite eyebrows.
"Flashlights," said Miss Berg, em
phatically. And it was flashlights that
started a carnival of self-arranged
slaughter and sent two or three
hundred children and their mothers
and teachers milling around a great
glass cage in a loop department store.
Inside the "showcase" was a glass bee
hive and a swarm of sure-enough bees.
The swarm belongs to the Society
for Visual Education and is part of a
nal ure exhibit installed in the store. It
was brought from the Evanston studio
of the society by Miss Berg.
The buzzers were lured from their
winter coma by warmth and food and
set to work making honey in the glass
,'-lge for the Instruction of public
school pupils. Photographers taking
pictures of the exhibit aroused the
swarm and hundreds began fighting.
The colony broke up into pairs which
lashed and clawed and stung until
scores lay dead on the floor.
While the excited insects were
emerging from the hive Miss Berk
opened a little door in the outer cage
and sought to close the entrance. In
an instant her hand and wrist were
covered with angry bees which drove
their daggers into her flesh.
Children and mothers and teachers
danced about squeaking warnings. Miss
Berg finauly abandoned her effort and
the bees fought until exhausted.--Chi
