0 A RACE BETWEEN AN AUTO AND A BALLOON.
0 An experimental race betwee n a war balloon and a war automobile was lately run In Austria for the pur pose of determining the relative advan-
Stage of the two means of communication. The race proceeded satisfactorily until the auto came to grief in fording an arm of the Danube
River. The water proved to be deeper than it was supposed to be, and the machine was wrecked, ihe balloon, meanwhile, continuing on
, its way. Our illustration shows the auto being hauled across the river by a team of horses.

The general tendency of the colored population throughout the
whole country, North and South, is from the rural into the city districts
from farms to the city and should the mortality in the city be greater
than it is in the country districts the colored population, like the Indian
population in other days, would diminish to the point of extinction.
In 56 of the cities of the country, 50 recently reported in the
Cenbus Office show an excess of deaths among the negroes. In New
Orleai.s, for instance, there were, last year, 1,700 births among the
negroes and 3,300 deaths; in St. Louis, 600 births and 1,200 deaths; in
Chicago, 400 births and 700 deaths ; and so on through the large cities,
the exceptions being chiefly in the Southwest and in Southern California.
Notwithstanding this, the colored population of the United States,
which gets no augmentation whatever from immigration, continues
steadily to increase, and in a ratio very little less than that of the
white population, added to enormously by newcomers from other lands.
The paradox is explained by the fact that the birth rate among
colored people is very much larger in the country districts of the South
than is the death rate. There is constantly a large and natural increase
in the colored population in the rural and semi-rural districts. In
percentage it is not high, but in totals it is considerable. Colored people J
who flock to the large cities do not go there in childhood, but when 1
at or near adult years. Colored girls from 16 to 20 seeking domestic i
service go to the large cities, and boys seeking the attractions of large I
cities or towns in preference to life on the farm or plantation constitute I
the chief element of addition to the colored population of towns and
Any person who is possessed of the idea that the colored population
of the United States is dying out needs only to consult the census i
figures to see his mistake. There were 6,580,000 colored people in
this country by the census of 1880; there were 7,500,000 by the census 1
of 1890, and 8,850,000 by the census of 1900. There is no diminution
of colored population in the United States, or in any part of it, despite

A Belgian inventor has devised means for extracting the energy
from black smoke and turning it to practical use. In certain factories
where his apparatus ha? been introduced the smoke arising from bitum
inous coal fires is driven by fans into a porous receptacle over which
flows a spray of petroleum, and the smoke i thus ignited. It is stated
that the combustion gives out a considerable amount of heat, which is
made use of economically.

RODE ON COFFIN.
Scarcely one man in ten thousand who bets on horse races has not
a story of how he won a lot of money "once upon a time" on a aueer
Probably one of the strangest tips on record was one a prominent
actor received when he was playing in Chicago. It was in the days of
the Roby trask. He had an engagement to take one of the women
of the company to the races. Of course, she was late. They missed the
last race train and were about to leave the station when the actress
suggested that he inquire if there was not some other train by which
they could reach the track.
"Well," said an attendant, "there's a funeral train going to the
cemetery near the Robv track. I don't think the mourners would take
you along if they knew it, but maybe you could ride in the baggage
with the coffin if the woman doesn't object."
The actress had the racing fever and the two made the journev
to the track seated on the coffin. Thev arrived in time for the third
race. Bad luck attended them. Thev test on that race and they lost 2
on the fourth. Then the horse in the fifth fell. j
When they reached the track the actor had $100 and the woman '
i?43- tins only 20 remained, lhey were desperate. In looking
over the entries for the last race the woman saw the name Hearse. They
had never heard of the horse before.
"There's our funeral tip," the woman cried to the actor. "Let's
play him for all we've got!"
They did. Hearse was ai 20 to 1 and won. It was one of the
tew times ne ever did win. W ashington Cor. New York Herald.
GREAT JUMP TAKEN BY PICKEREL.
The rock that marks the boundarv lines of New York. Pennsvl

Floyd Campbell went swimming in the river off Tri-States Rock
tne otner uay. Alter swimming awhile he got upon the rock to sun
umibcu. .as ne iay tnere. ins head in Bennsylvania, h
New lork State and his left in New Tersev, he saw
the water on the New York side of the rock
Ihe commotion came rapidly toward the rock and culminated in
the breaking trom the water of a sunfish with a bier pickerel in its
wake. The terror-stricken sunfish's rush to escape its savage pursuer
took it a foot or more beyond the edge of the water on the sloping side
ot the rock. The pickerel, in fierce pursuit, followed the sunfish, and
the impetus of its charge carried it clear through New lersev and half
way across Pennsylvania, where it stopped.
The sunfish instantly flopped back into the water. If the pickerel
had been content to go on either into the water on the Pennvlvania
side ot the rock or the New Jersev side, it would have saved' itself
but it turned on the rock and began flopping back into the New York
That move was fatal. Campbell recovered from his surprise rose
to a sitting posture and ran for the pickerel. His middle finder ran
under the gills of the fish and stopped it where it was. As it lav cap
tured its position was such that it covered part of three states and three
counties. It weighed nearly three pounds. Carpenter's Point (N. Y )
