The cellar filled with gas and his wife started to the cellar with a lighted lamp. She had not gone more than a step r two, when an expllosion followed, throwing her about twenty feet and setting fire to her clothing. Two sides of the house were blown to pieces and a sick son, lying in the bed, was burned on the hand.

Another operition upon the throat of the Grown Prince Fred erick William is f considered neces sary and several .eminent physicians of Europe have gathered at San Remo to witness and assist in the operation. This course lias become necessary on account of the rapid enlargement of the growth in the crown prince's throat, threatening to cut off respiration. The physi cians no longer discuss the nature of the malady, but all thought is bent upon devising some means of pro longing the life of the royal suffer er. There can be no doubt that the causes necessitating this second operation will terminate trie life of 11 i tne prince ac an early day. succes sive operations will only bring tem porary relief. One of the shrewdest aud most successful of advertisers is John Wanamaker, the great Philadelphia merchant, who accounts for his sue- j tl tlT cess in tms way: i never m ray life used such a thing as a poster, a dodger or a hand bill. My plan for fifteen years has been to buy so much space in a newspaper and fill it up with what I wanted. I would not give an advertisement in a news paper of even 400 circulation for 5,000 dodgers. If I wanted to sell cheap jewelery or run a lottery scheme I might use posters, but I never insult a decent reading public with handbills." i I. A. f r '4 DTt T 9 Suursreox and. XjaxLd. Locator.

It makes one s flesh creep to hear Ingalls describe how the In dian scalps his fallen foe. His eyes flash as he talks, and in tones dram atic tells how the savage grasps the lock in one hand and swings the knife in a circle of flight about the head of the victim. He then, with a gesture, shows how, bracing him self with his feet 'on the fallen man's shoulders, the Indian jerks off the scalp and it cracks like a pis tol, the report being produced by the suction like the pulling of a wet piece of leather from a flat stone. It would be very funny to see Mr. Ingalls illustrating the popular method of scalping Indians.
