Opinion of Mysterious Death at
Ophiem Changes on Lat
VICTIM NOT YET 1DENTIFED
Apparently Cut Own Throat and Then
Stood on Track Till Hit
by a Train.
Alpha. III.. April 13. (Argus Spe
cial.) The Iionry county authorities
who have investigated Hip (loath of tho
man whoso body was found In side; the
track of tho IStirlingUm road near Op
hiem last week have about come to
the conclusion that it was not a case
of murder or a hand-to-hand fight with
knives, as was later believed.
A close examination of tho body
shows that (he jugular vein was not
cut, and that the man was undoubted
ly struck by a train. His skull and
jaw bone were fractured.
Circumstances point to a delibora o
attempt at suicide, first by cutting tho
throat with the razor that was found
near a pool of blood sumo distam-.n
from where the body was found and la
ter by deliberately standing on the
track in front of an oncoming train.

SILVER AND CUT GLASS.
"Beauty for beauty's sake"
seems to be the ideal embodied
in our silver, and we are ve'ry
proud of it. The designing and
the workmanship appear to have
been devised and directed by
hands and brains in love with
their work, hence there is an in
dividual attraction in every piece.
Our cut glass is likewise the
achievement of enthusiasm as
well as of art and skill in pattern
and execution, and either ma

HOT V AV
Suggestion For a FrinteJ Roll Actuated
by an Internal Spring.
At a recent library association meet
ing something of a seusatiou was caus
ed by the reading of a paper calling
for a radical reform not in the con
tents, hut iu the shape a: -1 aspect of
the modern book, says the Strand
Magazine. "The book is the one fea
ture of civilized life which iu l.iXiO
years has undergone no change. There
were big liooks at the beginning there
are big lxoks now, folios and quartos,
although fewer than then; but, big or
little, they open iu tho same way, at
the same side, stitched and covered the
same, and are as cumbrous; and un
lovely as ever. Must the vehicles of
the world's literature ever remain in
the stagecoach stage? Has human in
genuity said Its all when the flat
paged, side bound book was invent
edV" Inspired by this perhaps a South
African inventor, J. R. Cummings, has
been at work upon a very novel and
interesting form of "literary vehicle"
(one hesitates alut calling it a book).
It is more nearly akin to the ancient
scrolls of papyrus, actuated by an in
ternal spring, which moves the printed
sheet backward or forward nt a pace
regulated by the reading ability or con
venience of the owner. A striking fea
ture of the device is the Index arrange
ment, by which any passage of the
vork by a simple pressure on the in
dex letter can be brought instantly un
