That Europe has passed through the two first months of spring without a catastrophe of any kind In tho diplomatic field must not bo takon to mean that tho sky Is now cloudless and tho horizon clear. On tho contrary,' ominous rumblings are heard everywhere, and no ono dares prophesy that 1912 will end in peaco. During the last two weeks a corre spondent of a Washington puper writes, events have happened which havo puzzled the diplomats of all tho great countries events which seem to predict the imminency of material changes in tho delicato balnnco of old Europe. Our poor old world, in spito of all ita enlightenment, still possesses Its political sphinx, situated within tho confines of Russia. What Russia's plans really aro no ono over knows, least of all, probably, tho gentle and peace-loving czar him self. Russia gavo tho first lmpulso to tho new grouping of tho powers when, under Alexander III., a strong and virilo ruler of extraordinary gifts as a statesman, she' concluded the alli ance with FTance, which became tho unshaken corner stone of the Euro pean position. Now, at least, It seems as If this corner stone is less firm than boforo. Franco and Russia are no longer In perfect harmony, and Russia blamed tho French ambassador to St. Petersburg for the Jarring noto of the discord which was dimly heard by those whoso ears aro always pressed against tho ground. Russia wanted to put an end to the war between Italy and Turkey, but sho wanted something herself from tho government In Constantinople in ex change for her friendly services, and she hoped, naturally, to bo backed up by Franco. In this hope she was dis appointed, and tho closing of the Dar danelles, which followed, caused the greatest lrrltntion in St. Petersburg, becauso it brought homo very forcibly KILLS SNAKE IN PULPIT "Tenderfoot" Pastor Shows Nerve While Preaching at Greeley, Colo.

Ho stooped quick ly, grabbed tho reptile back of the neck, carried it out of tho schoolhouse and stumped it to death.

Thero is a new horse on duty in No. 17 house. He Is a big ronn, fractious and difficult to handle. Tho alarm Bounded. Tho roan took his place by his mato and dashed out of tho house Tho 'driver managed him with diffi culty, but Rex ran along beside him, barking when time came to turn cor ners and endeavoring to show tho new horse tho way to answer an alarm. Suddenly thero came a corner to turn. Tho roan was slow in answer ing to tho reins. Thn he hurled hlB body to one side, dragging the engine after him, and tn wheels of tho heavy vehicle passed over tho body of the faithful dog. Tho firemen buried Rex with all the honors duo a hero. j - . Capture Giant Sea-Cow Monster Taken by Fishermen Weighs 3,000 Pounds and Is Twelve Feet Long. Point Isabel, Tex. Mexican fisher men had un exciting encounter with a manatee, a giant sea-cow, in the shal low water of the Laguna Madro near here recently. It was captured only after one of tho men, Ramon Rodri guez, had been seriously hurt by one of Its flippers. The creature was 12 feet long and weighed more than 3,000 pounds. It Is being kept alive and promises to sur vive for some time. Tho Eea-cow 1b supposed to havo come up from the more southern wa ters of the gulf.

A boat with three men went out to capture it. W they got close to it Rodriguez climbed out of tho boat nnd attempted to put a ropo around the manatee's fins nnd was knocked un conscious by a blow from one of ItR flippers. He would have drowned had ho not been dragged into tho boat by his companions The rope was finally fastened and the manatee was towed ashore. It Is tho second of its kind captured in tho Laguna Madre in t?ie laat few weeks. These animals nro quite numerous along tho coast 150 to 200 miles south of here. They aro adapted to both salt and fresh water.
