that he was dealing with conditions of
the nature of which he was unaware
would eventually weaken the man in
that case. Tell a suspected man who

a particularly stupid fellow he will

instance, show him ostentatiously the
weapon with which he may have killed
a man and tell him that you know all
about the rinie and he would better
confess it. He will say to himself,
They haven't got sufficient evidence
to convict me nud are trying to make

it throws I.'im into a panic, because he

ATTACKED BY SHARKS.
A Swimmer's Plucky Encounter With
Two Big Man Eaters.
John T. Clark, a well known swim
mer, in 1SS2 had a narrow escape
from serviug as a meal for two hun
gry sharks while giving an exhibition
at Pensacola, Fla. lie had agreed to
be sewed up in a big sack, heavily
weighted, with sand, and be thrown
into the bay near the navy yard, from
which bag he was to escape by cutting
his way out with a knife and swim
At an appointed time a flatboat took
him out some distance from shore, and
after being, tied up in the sack he was
thrown overboard. He had hardly got
more than thirty feet below the sur
face, when something bumped against
the sack, and almost instantly the idea
flashed through his mind that it was a
shark. Before he could do anything
there was a bump from the other side
of the bag. In a moment or two he
had cut his way out and was rising to
the surface, still clutching the knife in
his hand. Once something cold grazed
his leg as he was rising.
On reaching the surface he was
greeted with cheers, but noted with
dismay that there" were no boats near,
lie started to swim toward the near
est one when the water parted a few
feet to one side and he could make
out the long black fin of a shark. The
monster headed at price for him, and
as he was about to dive to escape its
clutch another shark dashed in.
As the first shark turned over on its
side in order to bite Clark dived be-'
low the surface, then up under the
shark, and drove the knife time after
time into its vitals, and it sank to the
bottom. As he came to the surface
gasping for breath a yawlboat manned
by excited sailors from the navy yard
ran alongside, and he was pulled
aboard just In time to escape the sec
ond shark. Detroit Free Press.
It Starts Growing In the Open, but
Finishes Under Ground.
Most people of the iforth suppose
that peanuts grow, like potatoes, on the
roots of the vine. Others with equal
confidence state that thoy hang from
the branches like pea pods. Doth are
right, and both are wrong. The peanut
starts in the air and sunlight above
ground iu the shape of a flower grow
ing at the end of a long tube. After
the fall of blossoms this tube, or pe
duncle, elongates and bends down
ward, pushing itself inches into the
ground. If for any reason it cannot
do this it dies in a few hours. But
If It succeeds in burying itself to its
own satisfaction the ovary at the base
of the peduncle slowly enlarges and
forms the familiar pod. which is there
fore dug out of the ground.
Scattered over the roots of the plant,
however, are numerous warts or tu
bercles, in which, by the aid of a good
microscope, can be seen myriads of
minute organisms. These bacteria-like
bodies, though they get their living
from the plant, contribute materially
to its supporting by collecting nitrogen
from the air and holding it In storage,
so to speak, supplying it to the plant
as need requires. These wonderful
little storehouses often contain, by
analysis, a greater supply of this In
despensable fertilizer than the sur
rounding soil. !
The native country of the peanut has
long been a matter of dispute, but the
department of agriculture states that
the weight of evidence seems to be in
favor of Drazil. Thus the peanut is
added to the four other plants of great
importance that America has given to
the world namely, cottou, Indian corn,
tobacco aDd the potato.
