The Tragedy From Which Sprang
A WEIRD TALE OF OLDEN DAYS
Neither Fate Nor Flood Nor Hurricane
Could Keep the Faithful Annlker
From the Man She Loved and From
Her Horrible Doom.
Tradition Is not history, but it serves
to 1111 hi the gaps left by tho chroni

sometimes a lurid one upon lliu
manners and customs of bygone ages.
A dark deed cruel enough to lie re
membered even in a cruel ago Is re
peated from father to sou, each gener
ation adding its touch of superstitious
marvel to the story till it grows Into
the fairy tale of today, mythical, yet
not without a kernel of truth.
Among the picturesque peasantry
of Itoumaiila lingers many a weird
tale of olden lu.s. One such legend Is
related concerning an ancient monas
tery, the remains of which are still to
be been on u wooded hillside. Benealh
thowoird walls Ilo nine great lumps
of granite, and among thesu rocks
rises a spring of clear water, called by
tho peasants "Manolli's well" and be

Negeu Ills liberty and permission to

costly materials similar to thoso used
In beautifying the mosque.
Accompanied by nluo skilled masons,
Negen returned to Iloumaiita, resolved
to Immortalize his mime, by building
there a religious house such as hud
novcr before been seen.
The silo chosen, tho builders set to
work under Ills orders, but tholr labor
was In vain, for every night evjl spir
its pulled down what had been erect

One nlglit Mauolll, the chief of the
builders, hud a struugo dream. A
mysterious voice warned him that the
building they had undortnken would
never bo reared unless thoy built Into
tho walls the living form of tho first
woman who appeared at break of day.
On awaking from sleep Mauolll
told his comrades of this vision, and
together they mudo a solemn vow to
sacrltlco thus tho 11 rat woman, maid or
matron, who appeared tho next morn

Joyfully the unisons received her,

THE CRASH OF WORLDS.
A Scientific Theory Concerning ths
End of Our Planet.
Credulous individuals who nro al
ways fearful that some of the ends
of tho world predicted by sensational
prophets may prove to be fuo will
tiud considerable comfort In the asser
tion of Professor Lowell that there Is
good scion tlllc evidence for tho belief
that mankind will have many years'
warning of Hie great catastrophe that
is uestincu lo put an cnti to an imiigs
According to Professor Lowell's
statements, there Is bomewbere 'within
the remote confines of space a great
muss of matter once n world, but
now dead that is hnrllng itself to
ward our sun. In time It Is certain
to reach the goal to "which It is tend
ing, mid when the two come together
the globe on which we live is destined
to cease to exist.
Fortunately for our peace of mind,
there is at the present moment no
such dead world within dangerous
proximity, and yet any day it may
appear. Any day tho morning papers
uiuy announce Hint one of these dark
bodies lias come within the reach of
the telescope that it may readily bo
seenlby the light of tho sun reflected
While it would then bo certain that
the end of the world was in sight,
there would still , be nmpjo time In
which to prepare for tho inevitable.
If the first view of the Intruder was
caught at tho eleventii magnitude
it could scarcely come much nearer
without being detected It would not
be until twenty-seven j-urs later that
It would become visible to tho naked
eye, and three years more would
elapse before it appeared to us as
equal iu size to u first, magnitude star.
In two years and three months moro
It would have come as near to us as
Jupiter, and by that time It would bo
fur tho brightest star in the sky. Iu
fact, its elt'ccl upon tho world would ,
already be- felt. Our seasons would
change, and the days would grow long
gor. Finally, Just 1-15 days later,
those who were stlil alive would wit
ness the beginning of the end. Tho
stranger would not strike lliu earth,
but would puss so close in its dash to
the sun that the earth would turn and
follow until together they would drop
silently Into the sun. Brooklyn Eagle.
