Golf In High Altitudes.
It Is strange bow many golfers tberc
are who fall to appreciate the great
effect the density of atmosphere has
on tbe flight of a golf hall. On a still,
misty tiny the hall tiles about five
yards to ten yards less than it dees

stated whether truly <r not is un

flies farther than It dees when the
wind Mows from the opposite and
niore acceptable quarter. The writer

to play many rounds 0 few years ogo
<n the Johannesburg links hi South
Africa, These :i:.ks are situated some
O.fM'O feet nb< ve sea level, and the nir
is wonderfully rarefied. The hail con
sequently Hew the most sm-j.rising dis
tance. As nnrt f f this the winner of
a driving competition sent a hail a
carry of 228 yards, the second player
returning the modest distance of 223
yards. Yet neither of these two play
ers could approach the driving capa
bilities of good amateur golfers.?

The tourist, nfter passing some re- i

Darberc and Surgeons.
John Le P.arl.our was tbe first mas
ter of the Honorable Company of Bar
bers six centuries ago. At or" time
the barbers nnd the surgeons preyed
up< n the public In loving brotherhood
and settled their family cjuarrels un
der the roof of one hall. By an agree
able arrangement tbe community was
to be "bled" on a system which for
bade the surgeon to cut hair, shampoo
< r sl ave and required the barber to
proceed no further In the art of heal
ing than the extraction of teeth and
"cupping." But as the surgeons grew
in the social scale they Sighed for re
lief from their lowlier brethren and
built a ball and formed a guild of their
own, magnanimously handing over the

Why the Earth Cannct Explode.
Tbe theory Is frequently advanced
that planets and even suns sometimes
explode and that tbe earth may some
day blow up like a bombshell, N<
celestial body the size of tbe earth
could pOSSlbly explode. If the entire
molten Interior of our globe could be
replaced with nltroglycerln and deto
nated the explosion would riot lift the
earth's crust. In other words, if we
nssume that the crust of the earth Is
from fifty to n hundred miles In thick
ness It would re-pilre something much
more powerful than even nltroglycerln
to burst the shell. It Is necessary only
to do n little figuring to see that the
pressure Of flic earth's crust nt
<!( nth of from fifty to n hundred mile.
1 far exceeds the pressure exerted by
tbe most powerful high explosive.?
