tin Grave English Political
Edlnburg, Dec. 3. That the grave
constitutional questions of woman suf
frage -and Irish home rule, to be sub
mitted to the people for a referendum
vote, was the blunt proposition made
by Lord Rosebery In a speech here
"The liberals by the hurried dis
solution of parliament thrust upon a
reluctant country a single chamber
governmental system," said be, "but
you must remember that there is no
Iron willed dictator to curb the power
of parliament which would result from
the abolition of the house of peers.
The only restraint would have to
come from physical force. I rejoice
in the postponement of the crisis by
submitting to the people. The ques
tions of Iritth home rule and women's
suffrage should be settled in the same

body of a 15-year-old boy was kept in

year ago the previous tenant left a

TOMBS OF THE PHARAOHS.
The Precautions Taken to Guard
Against Gray Robber.
Tbe ingenuity displayed by the an
cient Egyptians to prevent robbers
from breaking Into the pbaraohlc
graves" merits admiration from present
day engineers, writes Dr. Ilolscber,
chief architect In the Prussian govern
ment, in a work on the sarcophagus
of Kbafra. tbe builder of tbe second
Gizeh pyramid, who reigned In Egypt
some 6.000 years ago.
The lid of the red granite sarcoph
agus was dovetailed with minute
precision Into the receptacle. To pre
vent the cover from being drawn back
tbe Egyptian builders bored two holes
In the lid at the edge, not showing
above. These corresponded exactly
with two similar boles, Jess deep than
the other two. sunk in the front of tbe
receptacle. Two copper bolts were then
placed lu tbe lid holes, and at the mo
ment tbe surcapbagus was folly closed
the boles met and tbe bolts dropped
in position from the upper boles partly
into the lower, thus making It impos
sible to move tbe lid.
It must have' struck tbe Egyptian
engineers thnt grave robbers might
get nt tbe body by turning the sarcoph
agus upside down. In which case the
bolts would glide back into their orig
inal position and permit tbe lid being
drawn out. To prevent this they filled
the lower holes with wax and made
the bolts hot. Upon tbe lids being
placed in position tbe bolts melted
their way into the wax and upon cool
ing became so firmly fixed that noth
ing abort of complete destruction could
open the royal tomb.
. It must have been. ft her.cule.an labor
to new tbe Whole eOgff away; But that
la what grave desecrators did. and the
wax can atlll be seen in the bore holes.

Tho "Houm Fly."
Tbe reminiscent man suddenly found
gap In tbe conversation.
"I was In Kansas once," be began,
"when one of those old time cyclones
truck the town. I happened to be in
my brother's bouse at the moment and
beard tbe roar of tbe coming wind. I
knew enough to run out in tbe street
and lie down In tbe gutter with my
arms clasped around a hitching post.
Tbe next moment tbe cyclone bit the
town. Say. yon ought to have seen
the house fly." '
"Did you swat It?" Inquired the
mean man on tbe soap box.
And tbe story promptly ended.
