We slowed down in the yards and came to a stop. We were put on a siding to wait no one knew how long. I suddenly jumped from the engine, slid over a high fence and bolted for the street. In the empty square stood a cab. The cabman saw me coming. I waved a dollar at him and then an other, dodged into the cab. slammed the door and called out: "Cambridge! Harvard college! Professor Agassiz's house! I've got eggs for Agassiz!" and I pushed another dollar up at him through the hole. "Let him go!" I ordered. "Here's an other dollar for you if you make Agas siz's house in twenty minutes!" We flew to Cambridge.

A WILD RACE AGAINST TIME. The Professor Had to Have the Eggs Before They Were Three Hours Old, and This Is the Story of How the Hunter Made Good His Promise. When Professor Louis Agassiz was writing a hook on the turtles of the United States li became necessary for him to have some fresh turtle eggs. He engaged Mr. Jenks of Middleboro, about forty miles from Cambridge, to get them for him. Mr. Jenks promised that the eggs should be in Agassiz's jands before I hey were three hours old. Mr. Jenks. who told the tale to a writer in the Atlantic Monthly, had to wait by a certain pond for the tur tles to come mt and lay their eggs in the sand. Finally, after weeks of waiting, one morning about 4 o'clock a turtle crawled up the beach, partly buried herself in the soft sand and laid her i'v s.

But just then a door overhead was flung open, a great, white robed figure appeared on the dim landing above, and a quick, loud voice called excitedly: "Let him in! Let him in! I know him! He has my turtle eggs." And the apparition, slipperless and clad in anything but an academic gown, came sailing downstairs.

Memory does not "fail" (except In loss of all the faculties) it simply gets weak and languid for want of use, just as the physical organs do. People of ten say "M.v memory Is failing" when it is really as n«iod as ever if they would give it a chance. A word, a date, name, an incident comes up, or. rather, fails t» come up when yon want it. There seems to be no possible way of remembering it You make two or three efforts, give up and say. "There's no use it's gone from me." Nouseuse! It hasn't It is there just as much as it ever was. only there are a lot of things over It Keep at work, bring your will to bear upon it. try and try and try. and after awhile you can get it And, better, you will find that the ex ercise required in remembering it will help you next time and that a little toil and determination put together will accomplish wonders in the whole range of faculties. Look over your memory, see where you are most deficient and exercise it In that respect You can do it at any odd time, while you are walking, rid ing, resting after a day's work, listen ing perforce to a dull speaker.

A Series That Moved an Observ er to Turn Critic. SOME GEMS HE PRESERVED. The Lawyers Didn't Seem to See the Ridiculous Phase of the Inquiry, but It Loomed Large to the Man With an idea That the Law Is Solemn. A man who spent several days in a courtroom listening to the examination of veniremen was struck with the re flection that some shining legal minds would not be unduly dimmed by the infusion of a few of the principles of logic. The time taken up by attorneys in drawing the conclusion that a juror who lives at a given address makes his home there and then referring the conclusion to the juror for continua tion has not been computed, but any one mathematically inclined may fig ure it out by multiplying the following examples by any handy large round number: "What is your occupation?" "I am a switchman." "On a railroad?" The obvious answer which the ju ror's awe of his surroundings prevents him from making would be, of course. "No, in an ice cream parlor." "Judge," said a juror, "I would like to be excused from service. When summoned I was making arrange ments for my brother-in-law's fu neral." "Is your brother-in-law dead?" in quired the court. It developed that he was. "Now, Mr. Juror," came another question, "what is your age?" "Forty-four." "Forty-four years old?" That is exactly what the Juror meant. The lawyer guessed right the very first time. Here is another flash that came to one of the attorneys. "Where do you live?" he asked. "At 4416 Blank street" "You reside there, do you?" Once in awhile there Is a funny an swer which isn't to be wondered at considering the power of suggestion. "Are you married?" "Yes." "Any family?" "Two." But the balance Is well on the law yers' side. Witness this: The ques tioner had asked if a juror was relat ed in any way to any of the princi pals or witnesses in the case. "I am a brother-in-law of Mr. Blank, one of the witnesses," was the reply. "You married his sister, then?" He had. "Let me ask you now, Mr. Juror, have you formed any opinion about the guilt or innocence of this defend ant?" "I have." "Is it a fixed opinion or is it one that could be changed by evidence?" "It could be changed if the evidence were strong enough." "Then you would not call it a defi nite opinion?" "No." "It is a vague opinion, then?" "Yes." "Now, Mr. Juror, follow me closely, if you please. You say your opinion is a vague one and not definitely fixed. Now. then, if that is the case and you went into that jury box and listened to the evidence adduced from that wit ness stand and heard the law expound ed by the judge from that bench, would it not be possible for you to lay aside thaf opinion and concur in a ver dict warranted by the evidence and the instructions of the court?" "Yes." The attorney, having received the same answer to his long question as to his short one. is perfectly satisfied and throws a triumphant look at his colleague, which says, "I knew I could get It out of him If I kept at him long enough." Here is another astonishing deduc tion: A juror took the stand dressed in a blue uniform with brass buttons. Around his belt was strapped a money changer. The examining attorney look ed at him long and searchingly and then said in a tone which admitted of no trifling: "Yon are a street car conductor?" It was the same attorney who forced this confession from another juror: "What is your occupation?" "I'm a bookkeeper for Blank & Co." "You keep books in the office?" Unmasked, the bookkeeper broke down and made a clean breast of it. "Now. Mr. Juror, be good enough to state how old you are." "Fifty-six years." "How long have you resided in this state?" "Fifteen years." "Then you were not born here?" The trapped man admitted the truth. Here is another: "Were you born in Missouri?" "No, sir." "Oh, I see. Then you moved here from some other state." And then in a "corae-come-don't-delay-the-court" tone of voice, "Where did you come from?" "Chicago." "Chicago, 111.?"—Kansas City Times. Unhappy Man!

TAFTS VACATION BEING BROKEN INTO Eeverly, Mass., July 2.—Taft's ten day period of absolute vacation, which was to have begun with the close of a strenous Fourth of July, has been delayed. The president late today sent a telegram to Secretary of the Interior Ballinger, asking him to come to Beverly next Tuesday for what will probably be an all day conference. The vacation may begin next Wed nesday, but the president has his doubts about it. He already is mak ing the best of his stay in Beverly mixing a good deal of recreation with the business that must be disposed of every day. He played golf this morn ing and worked throughout the early afternoon and then went for a motor ride.

To those who braved the sunshine the dust ana the bumps in the road, and made their way to the road house on the other side of town, another scene of rest was shown—but it was rest of a different kind. There was more hilarity and loud merriment at that camp, aond the sound of singing and instrumental music breaking out at odd times, proved that the black champion andh is crew were amusing themselves as though the fight were already over and they were on their way do south in Dixie.

Its Pointed Peak and the Wonderful View It Unfolds. There are very few Alpine peaks so pointed as the .Matterhorn. Some—as, for Instance. Mont Blanc—are merely large lumps nf frozen snow, but the Mutterhorii is quite pointed and thin, composed of ridge formed by a per pendicular will of rock on one side and a very steep rocky slope on the other, a slope which after going a few yards at an incline breaks off sharp into a precipice.

As a long distance walker Ennis has already made a name for himself, having defeated Dan O'Leary and Weston in January, 1908, by walking 110 miles in 22 hours 10 minutes. Ennis was born in Ireland and cams to the United States when a small boy. He is known as a great walker and rides only when obliged to. It is said In Stamford that Ennis has never been seen wearing an overcoat, and his wiry figure is a familiar sight striding briskly along on the coldest days. But it is not as a walker alone that Ennis has made, a name among ath letes. He has won many prizes as a skater and has saved thirteen lives by his expert swimming.
