III .MAN SPIDERS IN CAVES.
iicJievcu to Ee Homes ;f Ancient Hare
or Else Tombs.
Curious caves in the Matsuyama hills,
ia the province of Saitama, near Tokio,
Japan, are believed by some to have
been the homes of an ancient race called
the Tiischiguma. or Earth Spiders, who
lived long before the ancient Ainos.
Others think them to be tombs, while
many are convinced that they are. merely
shelters used by the primitive tribe
when pursued by enemies.
The caves nre all on the southern 1
slope of the hills and command an ex
tended view of a fertile valley. This
strategic position argues for those who
believe the caves to hare beeu habita
tions and not tombs.

different phonograph you have ever seen.
In design it is most unusual, having a

only Cheney cabinets may boast.
In tone, The WESTMINSTER model

ricturp on Window
Pane f Private
The recent stories of the picture of a
wreath that appeared on a window pane
in a Columbia residence, and which
glass experts pronounced nothing more
than n defect in the glass, which had
boon there from the time it was made,
but only not iced 'after there had been
a dcat)i in the residence, recalls to a
prisoner in the penitentiary a similar
ease that came to his attention when he
was employed b.V the Pennsylvania
railroad at Alfoona. Pa.. It was traced
to another though equally scientific
One night the private car of President
IJolK'i'ts of that railroad was shunted
onto a siding in the yards at Altnona
and before morning there came a heavy
thunderstorm with intensely vivid light
.Next morninc when the cleaning ire
began cleaning the car there was foun
on one of the window panes a very
good picture of the yards that lay di-jf:
reetlv in front of it. It was just like a
fairly w ell developed photographic plate, ; gl
and there could be no question but that :tl '.Q
the scene jn the picture was the yards fj .
before it. j WA i $
A photographer who was called to'
look at it concluded that there bad been gl j
a thin film of oil on the window, which in isfg
some way became sensitive to intense i
light and a Hash of lightning bad im
printed the scene before the window on
the pane. Columbus, O., Despatch!
