tlrasurlng the Grand Falls of Ijibrndor.
At St. John's, Newfoundland, vn- bad
provided ourselves with several balls of
stout linen cord with which to measure
the height of the fall, if the situation
should be fouml suitable. Fortui ately
alontfside tbe chute just above the brink
of the main cataract we found a fixrof
rock of the Mime Mope, about SO degs.
Ix-low the horizontal. Along this v. was
possible to go, but with some peril, r early
to the eilce over which the stream plunges
in its final descent. Fastening a heavy
billet of Kreen fir to one end of the cord,
the weight was carried and thrown down
on the surface of the rock to the brink of
the full, Ihe cord being paid out from the
upper end of the slope.
A knot was made in the cord to mark
the distance to the edge, and the billet was
allowed to fall over the precipice into the
chasm. Montague, having climbed along
the bank at the edge of the canyon, was
rioici;ng on by the trunk of a tree, from
which he could see when the block of wood
struck the water below as the cord was
paid out by me above. The instant o" con
tact was plainly visible to him, and I was
equally sensible of it. The cord was now
drawn up over the edge and carefully
measured with a taneline. The v-hola
length paid out was 505 feet, the part
wnicn measured to slope was 189 feet, leav
ing for the height of the main fall tlow
the chute 816 feet.
Allowing for a few degrees deviation
from the perpendicular and for a slight
stretching of the cord, though this lat
was probably counteracted by wetting, tbe
height of the fall may be considered some
thing more than 300 feet. The veitical
height of the chute, about tbirtv-two feet.
added to the other measurement, nr akes
the descent from the head of the chute to
the surface of the water in the cl asm
about 348 feet. C. A. Kenaston in Cen; ury.

One man at least in Detroit is serirnsly
afflicted with punsteria. The other day
the train he wanted to catch went out of
the station as he went into it.
"There it goes in a cloud of dust,' re
marked a friend, pointing down tbe track.
"I thought it was missed," he said sol
emnly and started back home.
The same man he is unmarried hai an
appointment with a young lady to meet
him down town and join a boaiintr ni.rtv.
but she failed to materialize, and he went
to the boat without her.
"Hello," exclaimed one of the rJ-ty,
"where's Miss Iilank?"
"Couldn't find her," he replied.
"It's a missed-her-y I don't try to ex
plain," he said, mid then had to spell it out
