"What is it that telegram?" she
gasped. "It's bad news for you very

was almost completely unstrung by

he read it from end to end:

FORCE OF LIGHTNING.
An Ordinary Stroke I About Equal to
Fifty Thousand Horsepower.
Frequently surprise is expressed at
the effect of a stroke of lightning
which splinters a large tree or wrecks
a tall chimney, but if the enormous
power developed by an ordinary stroke
of lightning is taken into considera
tion the wonder will be that the effect
is so small.
Scientists estimate that an "ordi
nary" stroke of lightning is of 50.000
horsepower. That is force sufficient to
drive the largest battleship ever built
at top speed. The lightning stroke,
however, travels at a speed of 1S6.000
miles per second. We think we see a
flash of lightning, but as a matter of
fact what we see is only the memory
of a flash. The electrical current has
been absorbed by the earth long before
we are conscious of having seen the
flash. A person struck by a direct
flash would never see lt.-
The average electromotive force of a
"bolt" of lightning is about 3.500.000
volts, and the current is 14.000.000 am
peres. In such a "bolt" there is energy
equal to 2.4.-.O.000 volts, or 3.284,182
horsepower. Some day a wizard will
arise who will capture and bind a
"bolt" of lightning and with it turn all
the wliee' of a great city.
The time required for the discharge
of a "bolt" of lightning is about one
twenty-thousandth of a second. Chi
Nothing to Do.
The following bit, quoted from Lord
Cromer by Helen Barrett Montgomery

Lands." presents a picture of the mo

sion of v.-ornon exercises a most bane-
! ful influence on eastern society. This
seclusion by confining the sphere of
woman's interest to a very limited ho

population of Moslem countries.
An Englishwoman once asked an
Egyptian lady how she passed her
