THE BIRTH OF A WORLD.
From the Philadelphia Record.
There recently occurred a collision of
such magnitude (and Involving such
possibility of loss of life) that in com
parison all the disasters recorded in a
man's history would hardly be worth a
short paragraph. This was nothing less
than the coming together of two worlds,
each of which was probably very much
larger than our own, and possibly in
habited by sentient creatures. These
two bodies, traveling at inconceivable
speed after having been thrown out of
their normal relatione, crashed into each
other "heads on," as it were, and the re
sults must have been stupendous too
great, indeed, for accurate characteriza
tion in the superlatives of any tongue.
It may become chronic.
It may cover the body with large.
Inflamed, burning, itching, scaling
patches and cause intense suffering.
It has been known to do so.
Do not delay treatment.
Thoroughly cleanse the system of
the humors on which this ailment de
pends and prevent their return.
The medicine taken by Mrs. Ids E. Ward,
Cove Point. Aid., was Hood's Sarsapariila.
She writes: " 1 had a disagreeable itching on
my arms which 1 concluded was salt rheum.
1 bcnan taking Hood's Sarsapariila and in
two days felt better. It was not lone befora
I was cured, and I bay never bad any skill
Promises to cure and keeps the
promise. It ts positively unequaled
for ail cutaneous eruptions. Take it.
Although the smash took place thou
sands of millions of miles away from U3,
the debris resultant upon the collision
was visible to the artificial eya of human
The first effect of such a collision must
have been the development of a heat
so intense as to burn up the spheres.
When first seen the bodies appeared as
a new star of the eleventh magnitude,
and were so heralded by the interested
but scarcely excited astronomers. Later
the stellar light vanished from tele
scopic vision; but the more sensitive
photographic film caught and preserved
its image a3 a nebuia or diffused cloud
of luminous particles, while the spec
trum revealed to the now ecstatic star
gazers its character or composition. The
whole terrific event of the collision and
consumption of these worlds and the
creation of a nebula was discovered by
accident, in a sense. No peerer into the
starry depths was on the watch for any
thing so momentous and instructive
when the photographer's plate pictured
the apparent 1 new star; and the subse
quent condition was photographed when
the camera was set for common game.
Wonderful as this destruction of worlds
must seem to man, even more interest
ing and vastly more instructive would
be the birth of a new world, or of
v.orlds from $he nebula to which the
mass has been reduced.
"All flesh is grass" has been changed
by science to read "all flesh is gas," in
the sense that originally there was noth
ing in the universe except gas and en
ergy (or motion), and that out of these
have been evolved suns and. worlds and
man himself. It is the theory of sci
ence that worlds and system must go
on forming and dissolving forever; that
the process of evolution which has trans
formed the original volatile matter into
more and more complex and stable
forms will continue until all the energy
which has kept the particles apart shall
have been set free, when the free energy
must attack and tear down what it has
built up, reducing all matter at last to
the original nebulous state to be again
evolved into new suns and worlds. In
the case of the colliding spheres the
matter has been more quickly trans
formed by the heat of a smash-up.

Comes Report of the Safety of the
Seattle, Wash, Oct. 24. A special to
the Times from Port Townsend, Wash.,
The steam schooner San Pedro, arriv
ing this morning with 187 passengers
direct from Cape Nome, brought news
which will allay all fears as to the
safety of the ship Robert Dollar,
When the San Pedro left Nome on
the 12th instant the Dollar was in the
harbor, and announcement of her sail
ing date had not then been given out.
There is great competition at Nome for
passenger traffic, and the San Pedro
people think the vessel was held over in
order to fill up her accommodations.

Little Comedian Amuses Him
self Teasing a Parrot.
A man of diminutive height but with
broad shoulders stood underneath a
caged parrot in front of a Greek fruit
Btore early this afternoon and poked the
parrot with a bamboo cane.
The parrot Jumped from perch to
perch chattering and making use of its
entire vocabulary, The man poked again
and the corners of his mouth drew down
in a peculiar manner and he rolled one
eye and winked the other. It was Frank
Daniels, the head of the comic opera
company in Victor Herbert's "The
Ameer." He came over from St. Joseph
thie morning at 12:45 and after dinner at
the hotel walked up Kansas avenue
alone and stopped to poke the parrot.
He was having a real Jolly time.
"Where are we to be, in a bandbox?"
asked Daniels. "How will we get two
car loads of scenery and 60 people on a
little bit of a stage?"
Then he poked the parrot again.
"Well, the Beats are all sold and rrjore
too," was the remark by the reporter.
"Is the stage as large accordingly as
the advance sale?"
The parrot got poked again.
"Perhaps not- Where is your com
pany?" "Why, coming, I guess," said No. 1
of a company of 60 people. He was not
a bit worried about the other 69 people
but thought they could take care of
themselves as he had done. The star of
a company of a dozen would be worried
about the other eleven perhaps but the
star of a east of 60 was oblivious to
worry. "I left St. Joseph ahead of them,"
he continued, "but they'll be here."
He winked at the parrot. Frank Dan
iels looks Just a little like his pictures.
Enough so that anyone after seeking his
picture would recognize him if he was
found poking a parrot. On the bill
boards he has blond hair and looks
young and is clad in the very latest cut
of light overcoat. On the street he looks
to be about 40 years old, his hair is black
but well tinged with gray and his face
has not that boyish softness of the lith
ograph. He wears a very plain blue suit
and instead of a stage diamond a modest
ring. Even when he is talking in a ser
ious manner he looks ready to laugh at
a moment's notice.
"Crawford telephoned me yesterday
and said he would guarantee me $500 for
a matinee here this afternoon," said
Daniels. "Why, I wouldn't play a mat
inee this afternoon for 11,000. Do I want
to go to breaking rock? No." He punch
ed the parrot once more and walked off
toward his hotel.
Bring High Water to Eastern Ten
nessee. Elisabethton, Tenn., Oct. 24. The Wa
tauga and Doe rivers, which converge
near here are out of their banks and
have caused much damage. Thus far no
lives have been lost. The high water
was caused by the east winds, which
have been blowing for several days,
bringing all the water out of the moun
tain streams. The rivers began rising
early Tuesday morning and increasing
rapidly throughout the day and night.
The waters from the Watauga are run
ning over the tiuck of the Virginia and
Southwestern railway north of Ellza
bethton. The approach to the new steel
bridge of the road at Butler, Tenn., is
washed completely away and a passen
ger train is waterbound in Johnson coun
ty. Many thousand logs have gone down
the Watauga river to the booms of the
lumber companies at Watauga six miles
below Elizabethton. Considerable dam
age has been done to farm lands, fences
houses, roads and other property.
