Seated one elay In the tonnenu, I was timid and 111 at ease: For I heard a sort of rumbling, And a kind of a warning wheexe. -rr; I know not what struck my chauffeur, Nor what he hnd struck, nor wham, But I heard a bombllatlon Llko the sound of the crack of Doom! It lloodeil the crimson twilight Like the crash of a rending sky! And I lay on the burning' asphalt With the motor ncross my thigh. It quieted cries nnd moaning, Like a man who scolds his wife; It yemed an unending smash-up Thnt would speedily end my life. It linked all mv brenks nnd bruises Into one perfect patn: And it rumbled and whizzed and kust gled, As If it would come ajraln. I hnvo sought, but I seek It vainly, The reason for thnt great sound, Thnt came from tho soul of the motor, As It threw mo on the ground. It may bo a flrst-claBs earthquake Could bring such a sound to men; And It may be that only In nightmares I shall hoar that nolso again. Carolyn Wolls, In Harper's Weekly. vmii.n sv.w knoi.axd. (From tho Clevelnnd Lendor.) One of tho striking features of tho re vival of business thli spring Is tho great Industrial activity In Now England. The number of new mills, building or rlan ned, the additions to old mills and fac tories which aro being made, and the general Increase In productive resources afford evldonco of expanding trafflo nnd grently augmented wealth. This Indus- force, In business and In all productive activities. The greatest gain In the number nnd trial growth m on a larger scale than It has been for a long time. It Is abundant proof thnt Now England Is full of vltnl capacity of mills Is In the tnxtlle indus try, the field, the best part of which su perficial observers of business conditions nnd changes have said the South was fast capturing. Southern cotton mills havo Indeed multiplied rapidly and pros pered grently, but they havo merely tak en u part of tho( increase In the vast In dustry built upon the fiber of the cotton plant. They have not cut down New Eng land's output of cotton goods. They have not even prevented Its strong and almost constnnt expansion. Yankee skill nnd capital, tho experience of Now England manufacturers, the preiftlgo of their pro ducts and tho machinery of distribution In their hands, nil unite to defond the cotton Industry of that section from In Jury by competition In the region whero tho raw material Is grown. In other Industries and In commerce also New England holds Its own well. Now England cities are full of vitality. They are growing fast, somo of them moro rapidly than most places of like slzo In tho West. Tho section aa a whole Is no rich and strong, so rich In life and productive power, that Its business fu ture la bright. The old Yankee stook may afford a text for rnto sulcldn sermons, but he blenrt which peoples New Eng land to-day Is neither foehle nor decay ing. On the contrary, New England If especially Ttrlle and progressive a fact which nrgurs well for the nation. roiTWTAIBf PKA.

When tho terrillc subterranean upheaval of rock nnd dead ly gns spouted skyward those Italia s were caught. Terribly burned nnd maimed they rushed n'bout the settlement crying for aid. Tho cries and sound of hissing mlno gas at tho entrnnco of the mlno brought the entiro town to tho scene. Supt. Johnson, backed by tho oflleo force of the eompany, stood nt the mine entranco nnd held back the frnntlc women whose relatives were entombed. The first man to reach the surface was A.

Of tho eight who started four came back with their senses. The others overcome with blsck damp, were pulled to the surface with ropes. A second and a third party entered only to be driven back.

WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS SAY Ilntr the Mnttrr nf Free Hides Is Ho gnrded In Vermont. fFrom the Northfletd News ) Ex-Governor llnrstow In a recent court eous communication to the Burlington Freo Press took the position that a duty on hides would benefit tho Vermont far mer, and with that view of the matter very properly asked how Vermont's con gressmen voted on the question in tho House. Representatives D. J. Foster and Frank Plumley havo replied to the Inquiry In a Jointly signed letter which appeared In the Burlington Free Press last week and !s reproduced In another column, as wo bellevo thnt the concise statements therein will bo of Inte-rost to many read ers. Thn pros of tho State comments vory favorably upon the position of Messrs, Foster nnd Pluinlov ns sheiwn by tho following paragraphs frnm tho edi torial columns of three lending ne-ws-pnpers: The Burlington Freo press thinks "all must ndm'ro the spirit In which the Ver mont congressmen hnve repltd to Gov ernor Bnrstow's query concerning tretf vole In relation to the duty on hides " Thn St. Albans Messenger snys" "The Mersengor bellevea Congressmen Foster and Plumley took tho right attitude toward tho tariff question discussed in their letter printed In this paper and thnt their action will bo approved by the ma jority of their constituents." The Rutlnnd Herald ternaries- "The communication is neeompnnied by tho unanswerable statement thnt the tariff Is a complex problem, n faet that a great many off hnnd critics and advocate? of special Interests frequently lose sight nf. The Vermont ooit?rosmen also lay devn. nn Interesting foundation on which to, bnso tarlft prlnelples when they uy thnt. In nil tli schedules voting, they en deavored to 'npplv tho system of protoc tlnn as defined bv the national republi can convention of IWS, which, as wo In terpret It, would assure to the worker the American wage, to the capitalist a fair profit Hnd to the ultlmnto conaumei a reasonable senln nf prices.' " ANOTHER "FOCRTH" NEAR. fFrom tho Barre Times.) Th nearness of another Fourth of Ju'? colelcatlon makes Inrpratlve again i question e.f what Is to be done to mn -tain ns nenrlv ns posslhlo n ssfe celebr -tlon of tho dav. let Mono the sane re' brntlon.

But there aro certain restrictions which are not only reasonable but neccsnrv. First and foremost of these Is t!i" confining of tho celebration to certain limits. Since tho ! Fourth falls on a Sunda this venr, tho Monday following will necossnrlly be como tho grent day of obs-Tvan'-o Tho firing of explosives nnd the display of fireworks ought to bo absolutely restrict ed until midnight of Monday morning; and the sale of any coleh-atlng materials on Sunday should not be allowed, even ns It Is forbidden.
