Explanations. Carnival The. progress of the Royal Geo graphical society's expedition to Mount Everest, under the leadership of Col. Howard liury, was watched with keen interest by scientists, especially at the Natural History museum. South Ken sington,, to which the spoils yerc to have been brought for study and clas sification on the return of the party. One statement in a dispatch received from Colonel Bury excited special curiosity, and It is hoped that this will be satisfied by further discoveries in the course of the expedition. "Even at these heights (more than l.'0.00 1'eet)," writes Colonel liury, "there were curious tracks in the snow. We distinguished hare and fox t nicks; but one mark, like that of a human foot, was most puzzling. The coolies assured me that it was the track of a wild, hairy man, and that these men vVrp occasionally to be found in the wildest and most iniK--tvssible mountains." Naturalists here are by no means prepared to scout the idea of a human race living at such au altitude. The probability is, however, that the sup posed "wild, hairy man," is in reality a baboon, known as a Macaque, which is known to live at great heights on the Himalayas, and the footprint would be very similar to the human foot.

The leaves or pages of the book are of the finest vellum, and each letter of the text has been cut out with a sharp pointed knife, a work of infinite pains and labor. Then, to make them clearly legible, each page is given a backing of blue vellum. The origin of the book is unknown, hut it bears the royal nrms of England, al though it is not known that the book was ever in England.

On its father' Hide the automobile was (lescended front the noisy and asth matic gas engine, with a hady past in dicating ninny decades ago a morganatic alliance with the steam engine; but from its maternal line it gets from the bi cycle its soft pneumatic tires,- its gentle bearings and its gaudy wire wheels. From Adam himself it gets its weakness and perversity, while further back through the monkey to the jackass the automobile gets its giant strength a certain weird tind mysterious tendency to stop, in the midst of business or pleas ure and contemplate Nirvana! . And now after nearly a quarter of a century of affectionate care and price less sacrifice, we have almost tamed the cantankerous tiling. I T pon the automobile civilization has bestowed more than a king' ransom. Indeed, if we had nut away in the hanks the money we have speuet for "the lit tle ol' bus" we could pay the national debt as it was before the war. Of course America makes and buys more automo biles than the rest of the world; and per capita the Middle West buys more than the rest of the country. The Kan Fa and Illinois ami Iowa farmers gener ally have automobiles enough to give every person in their states a seat in an automobile one car for every five peo ple. The high percentage of saturation of the automobile in this country is unbe lievable by Europeans. Iu Europe the peasant knows the automobile only by its dust. In America the farmer will take no n win's dust. The horse . and buggy are almost gone in mid-western America, and have become practically extinct upon the Pacific coast. Yet the lioint of saturation has not been reacbed.r One car to a family is not tbV limit. 'The old people must have the touring car,? and the young people their sport cars,: The two-car family is becoming more and, more common in America. William Al len White in Judge. BEN FRANKLIN'S STOVE. Great Invention of 200 Years Ago Only Incident to Its Creator. It is almost 1100 years from our present day heating systems, radiator,, gas logs. i electric lx-ater, etc., back to Benjamin Franklin and his primitive stove. In 1742 lie hivented an open stove "for the better warming of rooms and at the same time saving fuel, as the fresh air admitted was. warmed in entering." 1 i Franklin made a present of the model to a friend w ho having an iron furnace found the casting of the plates for these stoves a profitable venture. - To further assist his friend ami increase the demand : Franklin published a pamphlet entiled, i An Account of the New-Invented lVnn-5 fsylvania Fireplaces, etc. So great was the result that he was offered a patent mil ; the stove, which he declined because, as j j he said, "As we enjoy great advantages' 'from the inventions of others, we should', be glad of an opportunity to serve others j by any. invention of ours; and this we should do freely and generously." The public-spirited decision was im mediately taken advantage of by a Lon don ironmonger, who patented the result, ana reaped a fortune.

If magenta is to le the new fashion able color, it will be the return to fa vor of the crimson-purple over which Europe went mad i0 years ago, ob serves a correspondent. It is dated by its name, for in 1S."9 the French and Piedmontese under Napoleon de feated the Austrians among the rice fields and vineyards of Magenta, near Milan. A crimson-purple aniline dye being discovered about the time, it was named after the famous victory, which everybody has now forgotten, though the color is to be revived. Magenta was then the very acme of beauty. But Its glory soon faded, and Charles Iteade, the novelist, wrote of his villain, "He wore a magenta tie that, gave Zoe a pain in the eye," while Barrie in "Margaret Ogilvy" epitomized the age of a heroine hi the fact that she wore a magenta frock.

ALL FOR ONE, ONE FOR ALL" frfrQu3pr6duction "Doug" has achieved the ambitJor of his life and registers with it. what is by all. odds the great, outstanding success of his career. His is'aremarkable, clear-cut portrayal of the noblej D'Artagnan, the wonderful hero. of Dumas'; amazing, novel of Mediaeval France. This tremendous film is the happy culmination of a tle- sire of years on Fairbanks' part to enact what is con- ceded to be the most striking and heroic figure inthe.i fenirehistory. of literature. With nothing that has ever been done in the vast' multi tude of films given to the world, can you fairly compare this supreme picturization of a story that has made mil Jions of men and women in every country on the face of the earth laugh and sob with unforgettable emotion. And Douglas Fairbanks as the noble D'Artegnan has caught, with rare feeling, that indescribable "something" that en- ables him truly to live the part.
