MURPHY FUNERAL DIRECTOR AND EMBALMER Off!ce!3l3 Beltrami Ave. Phone 319-2. A Rossini Joke. Rossini promised a place in the opera orchestra to a trombonist and then forgot about it, says the Musical Courier. At one of his dinner parties the butler announced the visit of this same protege. Rossini hastened to wel come him and, relieving him of his in strument, disappeared a few moments. to return with his friend. Handing the instrument to the trombonist with a re quest to let the company hear him, Rossini prepared to listen. Trombone to lips, the musician rosedismay, no sound, cheeks bulging, eyes distended. In vain the unhappy man makes super human efforts to produce harmonious sounds. At last! Oh, effort supreme! With a sound like a hoarse goose cackle there shoots from the trombone a mass of sticky macaronfc "No harm, my friend." said Rossini "you have proved yourself a strong musician." And the next day the coveted position was offered to the trombonist.Boston Transcript Sunlight and Germs. Here is an instructive experiment made recently on the effects of sun light Some germs of the terrible dis ease, anthrax, were sown on two plates of gelatin, and while one plate "was kept in the dark the other was placed in the sunlight. The germs grew, and at the end of ten minutes there were 360 colonies or groups in the sunshine plate and 400 colonies in the dark plate. One hour later the result was: In A. A.

BARKER'S DRUG & JEWELRY STORE The Snake Stone. In most accounts of snake charming in India the snake stone plays an im portant part When the charmer is bit ten the stone is applied to the bite and is supposed to aid in his recovery. Writing in the London Field, Lieuten ant L. Mackenzie gives some notes on two of these stones, which he had the opportunity of seeing. They were tri angular in shape, flat and rounded, with smooth polished black surfaces. They are said to come from the hills of Tibet and to be the solidified saliva of the markhor. This animal is spoken of in Lieutenant Mackenzie's note as the "Persian snake eater." Its saliva is thought to contain an antidote to snake poison. The markhor is a spe cies of wild goat found in India, Tibet and Kashmir.

TRAGIC IN ITS BREVITY. The Story of the Duel Between Hamil ton and Burr. The story of the Hamilton-Burr duel is tragic in its brevity. The little party of fivethe principals, their seconds and the surgeonwas on the ground not long after sunrise. The prelimi naries were soon arranged. As Pen dleton, Hamilton's second, gave him his pistol he asked, "Wfll you have the hairspring set?" "Not this time," was the significant reply, and then the men faced each other. According to the best authorities upon a disputed subject. Burr fired at the word. At the report Hamilton started forward with a convulsive movement, reeled, involuntarily dis charging his pistol into the foliage above him, and fell headlong. Burr, with an expression of pain upon his face, sprang toward him, but Van Ness, his second, seized him by the arm and hurried him down the bank and into their boat Hamilton, being lifted up, revived for a moment and gasped, "This is a mortal wound, doctor." Relapsing again into unconsciousness, he was again revived by the fresh air of the river. "Pendleton knows," he said, trying to turn toward his friends, "that I did not intend to fire at him." At 2 the afternoon following he had breathed' his last.
