ftanaa of Eight Great Volcanoes. Near
take Albert Edward In Central
It Is not very generally known that
right In the heart of Africa at the
southern end of Lako Albert Edward
rs a groat rango of volcanoes. The
arc eight In number, and, though It Is
truo that, unlike Rukenzor, they cany
no permanent snow, tho highest peak
1b over fourteen thousand feet in
height These volcanoes are particu
larly interesting on account of their
comparative neweness. Running
through the middle of Africa there Is
a trench many hundred miles long,
In which Ho tho great lakes Albert
Edward, Klvu and Tanganyika.
Not very many thousands of years
ago, the volcanoes, generally callod
Mfumblro, burst through the middle
of this trench and made a dam across
It, with tho result that some of the
water, which formerly flowod Into
Lake Albert Edward and eo Into tho
Nllo, was cut off and a lake was
formed behind the dam. As times
went on the waters of tho lake which"
Is now called Klvu rose hlghor and
hlpher, until, not being able to flow
over tho barrier of the volcanoes,,
they formed tho Ruslsl river, which
runs the other wny Into Tanganyika,
about 100 miles distant Of tho eight,
volcanoes only two show signs of ac
tivity at tho present time, In tho form
of thin wisps of steam which may oc
casionally bo seen; but a vast plain
of lava, with a wide black stream curl
ing through Its midst, showed where
a formidable eruption had taken
place only two or three years before,

tered hore and there, and we felt
slight shocks of earthquakes once or'
twlco, so It Is not safe to say that

FRENCH OFFICER'S REVENGE
How Ho Got Even With Venetian
Nobleman for a Cool and Morti
A French officer who had spirit and
good birth, but little wealth, had
served the Venetian republic for some
years with great valor and fidelity,
but had not been acknowledged with
promotion as he had merited. Ono
day he watted on a nobleman whom
he had often asked for advancement
In vain, but In whose friendship ho
had florae reliance. The reception ho
met with was cool and mortifying; the
nobleman turnod his back upon the
old Boldler and left him to find his
way to the street through a suite of
hoautlfully furnished rooms. He
passed them, lost in thought until ha
saw a valuable collection of cut glass
on a damask-covered sideboard ready
for a banquet Turning to his com
panion, a faithful English mastiff, he
"Here, my poor old friend, you see
how these haughty tyrants indulge i
themselves, and yet how are w
The dog looked at his master's face,
and gave tokens that he understood
him. The veteran walked on, but the
mastiff slackened his pace, and, laying
hold of the damask cloth with h,'8
teeth, with one hearty pull brought
all the glass on the sideboard In shiv
ers to the floor.
How Plotures or Words Are Printed
by Nature on the Growing
Occasionally much interest Is
aroused by the appearance in a fruit
store of a few apples on which nppc-ar
,perfo:t photographs, not pasted on
but apparently In the skin of tho fruit
Though Interesting, the method of
making picture apples is simple and
not at all difficult if the fruit is of a
red variety. Just before the apple bo
glns to turn a photographic film Is
fastened about It In such a manner
.that It will not move and blur the pic
ture. The foliage is then removed so
that the apple is exposed to the direct
rays of the sun and nature does the
printing. The prints are clear, sharp
and perfect In every way, except that
depth of tone is lacking. If It Is de
sired to brand a name or words on the
fruit black paper should be used In
stead of the film, the desired letters
being cut out
Probably some clever advertiser will
take advantage of this method some
'day, and we may be handed an apple
on which Is attractively etched some
thing like "If I Give You Pains Tako
Pepper Pepsin Pills."

Sand and Germs.
Pretty- Ideas don't always appeal to
the experts in hygiene. Kissing, for
example, is dangerous, and .eyen that
sand provided for children in the
parks Is not so innocent as It 'looks.
The sand-hopper, with which children
are so familiar on. the real seashore,
is replaced, according to the gloomy
experts, by another kind of hopper.
The sand, in a word, when the chil
dren have played architects with it for
,a time adds, crlttincss to grittlness.
'This is not necessarily a reflection on
the children or the children's parents,
for sand, like loose hay and straw,
seems to produce crita out of no
where. But after all, sand, can be re
newed at small cost and if the econo
. mists shout too loud let them be in
ivlted to. take the old sand. It will be
as good and crltloss after that as
when it was new. London -Chroniole.
Like Insect Flying.
, So far nearly all aeroplanes fly al
most like Insects. The fly. makes
i 300 beats of its tiny wings a second.
The propeller perhaps one-third as
many revolutions, but the albatross
and the frigate bird and the .buzzard
'make at most only three or four beats
a second. But albatross and frigate
can Bustaln themselves two or throe
days without lunching between dates.
Let's hear of prizes for longer ,and
longer flights on the least gasoline.
When the thing gets down to brass
tacks it may show that the aeroplane
only needs to put on strong power
in going up to its aerie. After that it
may Boar away and use its gasoline
only to meet cortaln unusual condi
tions in tho upper or lower air.

A Smile Counts.
.Every, one likes to see a smiling
face, and to smile becomingly one
must cultivate a cheerful and sympa
thetic condition of mind. The face
wreathed in smiles Is like perpetual
sunshine in a house. It Is irresistible,
and conquers all hearts.
A smiling mouth loses half its
charm If the eyes do not correspond;
for the eyes are the windows of tho
soul, and the smile that lies only
about the Hps soon dies away, leaving
an Indifferent spirit to survey and
chill tho world.
Cultivate the art of smiling, not
with your lips, but with your eyes.
Every one can have laughing eyes.
