The document U a letter from John
Hancock to Klbrldge Oerry, dated Isl

was the night before the memorable bat

ncoordlng to Longfellow, "crossed the

Mr. Benjamin says that If Hancock of
the committee of safety, knew at 9 o'clock
that the troop had gone along the Con
cord read and hoped they would be "se
rious," that Lexington and Concord were
fully aroused to the danger of the coming
of llrltlKli troops, and that there would
be no need for Paul Revere to eend
Through the night hla cry of alarm
To every Middlesex village and farm.
The guarded expression! In the note, Mr.
Benjamin Bay, are due to the troublous
tlm, when Hancock might expect to
have his mnll seized and did not want to
havo his correspondence betray more In
formation than waa absolutely necessary.
Jill p sitlon Is that tills letter proves that
by t o'clock the committee of safety was
well acquainted with the British plans
uiid had sent troops to Concord to bo
ready. Therefore If the patriots were fully
prepared at o'clock, why make the mid

already had for some time?

omitted, so that printed with others It

Paul Revere waa never famous until the
Longfellow pevm appeared. Since then
historians, remembering; that the atone
tower, which the poet's hero of "The
Skeleton in Armour" had built for his
lady turned out to be the old round mill
which Benedict Arnold'a grandfather had
erected, have been looking rather askance
at Paul, particularly as Longfellow painted
him. Still historians are agreed that Paul
Revere actually did exist and did some
riding, although not as Longfellow made
him do It.
After the learned professors had declared
their distrust of poetic history, they did
manage to find a plain prose yerslon of
Paul Rover among the old manuscripts
of the Massachusetts Historical society
papers. It proved to be a letter written by
Paul Revere In 1798 to their secretary, Dr.
Belnap. Right then and there Paul, as
Longfellow wrote htm, and Paul, as he
wrote himself, began to disagree.
The first trouble waa over the lantern to
be hung in the old North church for a sig
nal fight. Even now historians are not
decided whether the tablet hung In Boston
oommeroratlng the apot la placed In tha
right church, or whether It was Robert
Newman or John Pulling who "climbed
the tower of the old North chureh by tho
wooden stairs with stealthy tread to tho
belfry chamber overhead." Paul Juat calls
him a friend, and so does Longfellow.
Having established the fact that there
waa a church aomewhere and a lantern
troubles begin to arise. Paul Revere him
self wrot that the signal was Invented by
him for the benefit of some American of
ficers. "'Colonel Conant and others," In
Charlestown. to lot them know when the
British crossed, fearing that any messenger
from Boston might be taken by the British.
A Borrowed Horse.
When Dr. Warren asked him to go to
Lexington to warn Hancock and Adams
there, he told his friend to raise the lan
tern as a signal to Conant In case he (Re
vere) couldn't leave Boston. Having or
dered the lantern to be placed, Revere
quietly lowed across to Charleston and
borrowed Deacon Larkln's horse. In his
letter Paul assures Dr. Belnap that the
horse, though belonging to the deacon, was
a good one. The historians do not raise
117 great objection to the Revere docu
ment so far. but it Inconsiderately de
stroys the first six stanxas of Longfel
Whl! Deacon Larkln's horse waa being
saddled. Revere met Richard Devens of
tho committee of safety. Who told
mlttee of Safety knew the danger three
hours before Paul Revere took to night
Continuing his ac fount, Revero aays he
two British officers, and after leading
one Into a clay pit, he turned Into the
Medford road to avoid the ether, and
"alarmed almost every house to Lexing
ton." There he found Hancock and Adams
at the Rev. Mr. Clarke's, and there "wo
refreshed our!" and halt an hour
later set out for Concord to protect the
stores. This prose account knocks out
Longfellow's eighth and eleventh stanxas.
Worse, however. Is to come. Paul Revero
himself doesn't profess to have reached
Concord. When half way there, the Brit
ish officers captured him, took from him
Deacon Larkln's good horse, and mounted
him on the worn-out nag of a British
sergeant. They also addressed language to
him, which Longfellow certainly never
would have invited children to "listen and
hear." Paul was forced to accompany the
British back to Lexington, as far as the
meeting house, where he dodged them, and
went to the tavern to help move the trunks
So the historians say stansa twelve
couldn't be true, granted any amount of
poetic license. He certainly never did
"come to the bridge In CrmcorJ town" as
the clock struck 2 or at any other early
Having completely taken the wind from
Longfellow's sails, the prose letter ends
the midnight ride, and goes Into great de
tail on a subject not connected with the
However, the historians are not alto
gether satisfied with the Revere letter, for
he wrote It In 1798, twenty-four years after
the rldo, and, conceding his honesty, his
memory might easily have been bad. Con

have come to have of Paul Revere'a ride.
Mr. Benjamin believes that tho evidence

shows that It simply never happened at all,

HOW RABBIT DODGED THE DOG
Jamps lata Plylnsj Aato and Gasoline
Fames Kill It Foolish
Charles Crampey, a Newark. N. I., busi
ness man. was driving throurrh Caldwell
with two friends tn his automobile, when
on the outskirts of the town they saw a
dog pursuing a rabbit. The dog was bay
ing fiercely and seemed to be gaining on
bunry. The rabbit and Its pursuer came
diagonally across the field toward the road
on which the automobile was speeding, but
they were running at a speed far In excess
of the vehicle.
As tho rabbit reached the rondway It
had to leap on a stone wall that runs
parallel with the highway The elevation
brought It almost on a level with the ton
neau of the machine, and the next Instant
it hsd sprung across the Intervening apace
and landed squarely in the seat behind Mr.
Crampsey, who was driving.
The dog also had to leap the stone wall,
but the automobile had gone by when he
poised for a spring after his quarry, and
he missed landing where bunny did.
The rabbit, after a frightened glance
around, seemed to decide that the auto
mobile was a safe refuge and made no
effort to escape from Mr. Crampsey, who
had put a protecting arm around It,
But the dog gave chase to the automobile
with loud yelps. Mr. Crampsey put on full
speed, but the animal waa game, and soon
began to gain on the car. When he came
alongside, he reeled and the next moment
fell over dead.
The party got out ' and went back to
whero the animal lay. ' One of Mr. Cramp
sey' friends, a veterinary surgeon, said
the dog, whose heart had been weakened
by the fierce race, had succumbed to the
gasoline fumes and was suffocated. Mr.
Crcmpscy took the rabbit home. Nwark
BIG COAL VEIN UNDEVELOPED
Extends from Donates, Wye., North
ward to the Canadian
Acoordlng to a report reoehtly submitted
to the secretary of the Interior, the largest
coal field tn the United States Is that
which extends from Casper and Douglas,
Wyo., northward to the Canadian boun
dary. All of western North Dakota and
eastern Montana and that part of Wyom
ing lying between the Belle Fourche and
the Bighorns Is an unbroken field of low
grade bituminous coal and lignite.
As the federal statutes providing for the
sale of coal land by the general land office
specify only the minimum charge per acre,
the townships included In this great coal
field were withdrawn from entry three
years ago and the secretary of the Interior
instructed the geological survey to classify
and value the land. This work was begun
In northern Wyoming last year, when a
party under J. A. Taft examined the erea
between Sheridan and Clearmont, and an
other party, under E. W. Shaw, studied the
Casper-Douglas end of the field. The work
was contlnupcd this year by H. S. Gale,

that the (Jerry letter shows that the Com- j Mr. Stone, who has just returned to
Washington, has made the following state
ment of the scope of the season's work:
"All of the coal 1n this field lies nearly
flat and In what are commonly known as
"blanket seams"; that Is, if coal outcrops
on one side of a hill It probably extends
through and will be found on the other side
of the hill at about tha same level, so that
tha geologist who can read the natural
signs can trace a coal bed for miles, even
though no coal Is seen on the surface.
"Many ranchers appear to think that so
long as there Is no coal In sight the land
cannot be classed as coal land. This view
Is obviously erroneous, for even a twenty
foot coal bed may be completely hidden by
a grassy slope, and yet by a little digging
may become a paying mine. Therefore,
such an operation as shoveling down the
top of a bank to conceal a coal bed at Its
base neither deceives the geologist nor
makes noncoal land out of coal land. The
fact that there Is no coal, at the surface
In a whole township does not necessarily
Imply that It Is noncoal land; there may be
a workable coal bed just below the surface,
a fact to be determined by examining the
geology of the surrounding area or by
drilling." Washington Herald.

Though much ts being said and writte i
about New York's growth in length and

not often hear the question: "How thick

the use of slang he may translate "thick"
Into "stupid" and reply: "New York is
Just thick enough to let a succession of
Tammany mayors waste her wealth until
bankruptcy stares her In the fsce.." But

street level, the highest point permanently
reached by man In his activities above
ground In New York, to the extreme depth
of the elevator plunger cylinders beneath
the City Investment building, a point S90
feet below tha level of Broadway, the point
of greatest depth thus far reached by man
in his activities below ground In New York,
th city Is over one-quarter of a mile
thick. Reduced to yards, this thickness of
New York Is X63 yards and one foot, and
In inches the total thickness Is 13,080. Ex
tended over a horizontal plane, this thick
ness of New York would a little more than
equal the distance from the Battery to
Rector street or from the city hall to
And If, by some giant knife, Manhattan
Island could be cut like a pie, down through
the lofty Metropolitan tower, to the ex
treme depth of the elevator cylinders be
neath the City Investing building, all un
believers would be offered ample ocular
proof that within tha last few years under
ground life In New York has developed at
an almost unbelievable rate.
Following the traii of the elevator shafts,
sub-basements have followed basements,
and have In turn been followed by stib-sub-basements,
until beneath th Hotel Bel
mont at Forty-second street and Park ave
nue elevator aervlca has been extended
down to the fifth level, a distance of flfty
rlr.e feet and four inches below th level
of the street. True, It ts only the freight
elevator cars which descend to this bottom
level at present, but passenger elevators
even now descend to the third level or
story below tho street, on which the hotel
laundry is, and they will probably descend
the entire distance to th fifth lvel som
day. A better idea of the depth to which
activities are carried below tha surface
of New York at this point is afforded by
the fact that the subway, as it swings
from Park avenue Into Forty-second street,
passes through the second level or story
of th hotel building below the street, and
that business Is dally going forward In
the three levels below the subway, as If
the situation were the most commonplace
In the world. There are numerous other
buildings In the city, especially among
those recently constructed, in which the
elevator service is extended beyond the
basement to the sub-basement.
An Illustration of the growing tendency
to develop the underground possibilities of
business life in New York was given when
plans were recently filed for a new sky
scraper, to go up on the site of the Towsr
building, the original New York skyscraper,
at 50 Broadway. The plans for this new
building call for six stories below the level
of the street. New York Tribune.

Scenes at Stopping Place for Pas

Th dark comes down with African
swiftness, and at 8 o'clock th train stops
for the nUrht at Choma. Instantly all is
life and bustle. In an incredibly short
time all the natives on the train and they
often number 100, either going to
or returning from the mines are busy
making fires by th side of th track upon
which to cook their evening meal. Our
own boy is busy with th rest, making a
fir also and boiling watar tor tea.
In fifteoa minutes you have th new ex
perience of a dark African night, with Its
brilliant southern stars, and the biasing
fires, each within Its circle of laughing.
Chattering natives, whose white teeth
gleam In the firelight as they throw thalr
heads back In huge enjoyment of any
joke. They are almost uncanny, those
gleaming white teeth.. Everywhere just

while It Is still daylight, and so we get
a longer stroll. Wa have now made friends
with on or two other travelers, and a
little friendly gossip passes th tlm until
a meal la ready. .It Is so Interesting to
know why thase ether travelers ar there,

Interest nor surprise.

Back of Beyond. Hero is a native commis
sioner for Northwestern Rhodesia taking
his wife and child to some distant outpost,
only to be reached after perhaps ten or
twenty days trek. One looks at tho woman
with a sense of awe. She Is young, pretty
and charming, and out where she is
going there is no other woman, no doctor
within perhaps eighty miles, no other child
for her child to play -with nothing but
days and weeks of monotony and the si
lence one can hisar. We look at her with
awe because wfe know she Is a heroine.
We know she Is going. In a measure, to a
silent martrydom, unless the man for
for whom she goes can be all things to her.
Later on the station master regales us all
with an excellent phonograph, and the rows
of glistering teeth glisten more persistently
