This photograph shows the pulmotor restoring to life a man who has apparently ceased to breathe, having been overcome by poisonous gases. The noxious gases are drawn out through one tube of the apparatus and oxygen is forced into the lungs through the other. v EAGLE BEHEADS RARE BIRD An American eagle, confined In the aviary at Columbian Park, Lafayette, ind., deliberately killed a Mexican blue quail, one of a pair which had just been brought to the park, from New Mexico. The Mexican blue quail is a rare fowl and this pair had been cap tured after a six months’ search. There was no suitable place for them at the park aviary and they were placed in an empty compartment of the big cage in which the eagles and owls are kept. There is a stout wire netting between the two compartments and wooden strips are nailed around the bottom. One of the big eagles hopped close to the wire netting and found a hole through the wooden strip. He reached through, seized one of the quails and pulled Its head from its body. FREAKISH AMERICAN BOAT y '■'* * ’ -a .'V - . ’A.- *■ • This photograph depicts one of the most curious boats that has ever rid den the waters. It is the invention of a retired captain of the American navy, who claims that it possesses all sorts of remarkable advantages over the ordinary screw-propelled vessel. The boat suggests a steam-roller or a couple of tool-sheds and a pair of gar den-rollers, and although it presents a somewhat ungainly picture it does ef fectually what is claimed for It. SIXTEENTH CENTURY HOUSE Hidden by brickwork for over 200 years, the remains of a sixteenth cen tury timber building has been dis closed during the recent work of re construction of Goodrich House, Hat field, Hertfordshire, England. A large number of silver and copper coins, dating from the time of Charles 11. to George 11., have also been found. The property w r as originally a portion of the Manor of Hatfield, and w r as sold in 1792 by the first Marquess of Salis bury to the Hart family, from the ex ecutors of which family it was pur chased last year by M. Spealght. THEY LIVE LIKE APES Asa model example of an abso lutely primitive race of people, Prof. W. Volzs, of Breslau university, has brought to notice the Kubus, who are completely isolated in the forest in terior of Sumatra. They share the life and habits of the apes living in the same forest. They do not seem to have advanced even to the hunting stage of development, and are not known to have any ideas on religion, ©yen the most primitive. OLDEST THINGS ALIVE The Calaveras National forest? one of the newest regions In the west, set aside to be preserved In Its primeval grandeur for the generations that are to come, promises to prove one of the most popular of the nation’s play grounds. The Calaverus National for est takes its name from the Calaveras Grove of Big Trees, those monsters of the Sierras that are today the old est and the largest living things that the sun shines upon. This park was three years ago set aside by congress that these same trees might be pre served. As individuals these trees are many times as ancient as any other in dividual living thing, but further than this, they are, as a class, survivors of a geological time that far ante-dates the present era and are the only sur vivors of that time. In the tree world these old giants of the slopes of the Sierras occupy a place of romance not unmixed with a hint of mysticism. They are the Wan dering Jews of the forest world, the mysterious individuals that have come down in an unknown wav from asres TRAVELER’S MISTAKE Will Chinese customs and traditions change with the new’ regime? If they do travel in the Celestial empire will be deprived of much of its pleasures, w’hich are sometimes attended with excitement, not to say danger. Two Englishmen traveling in Ning-Po on a visit to a Chinese official during the autumn had, to say the least, a divert ing time. They were being carried in sedan chairs, and feeling the atmos phere oppressive asked the bearers to give them a little fresh air by opening the roof. The men met the request with stolid indifference, so the travel ers decided to open roof them selves. As they approached the city they found that they w r ere the objects of considerable attention. A crowd of 500 surrounded the chairs, and soon it increased to 2,000, the people uttering menacing cries. Happily nothing worse happened. When they reached their destination their host received them with astonishment. “Good gra cious,” said he, “what have you done? Only condemned criminals here travel in an open chair?” SWISS SOLD WIFE FOR $4 At the village of Utzmach, near St. Gall, Switzerland, a woman was “sold” recently, with her consent, to another man by her husband. The buyer, an Italian and friend of the Swiss couple, thought he wms “legalizing” the sale by procuring twm witnesses and hav ing the contract written on stamped government paper. The Italian told his Swiss friend that he wife and the Swiss promptly offered to sell him his own wife at a bargain price, which was then discussed and fixed at IGs. * Frozen Arch of Labrador One of the sights of the winter, seen, however, by few persons, was a monster iceberg outside Battle parbor, Labrador. It was in the form of an arch, and its sire may be judged from the government patrol steamer which in the photograph is seen at the back of ifc Over two-thirds of the Iceberg Is under water. " in the dim and distant past, ages from none of their fellows, bound by the laws of the normal, have succeeded in escaping. They bring a hint of a time in which ail growth was of their kind, stupendous In its proportions. They awake the mystery of that time and a desire to know how they alone es caped it. They dwarf the small trees of today as a mastodon might have dwarf ted the gray wolf which now in habits its haunts of old. They look down from the purer air of their lofty tops upon the pigmy forests of today that may not even reach their lower branches. Yet the geologists # know that there v#as a period in which all the growth of the earth was In proportion to these big trees. Geologic remains of such growth is found in Arctic North Amer ica, Europe and Asia. There Is an abundance of it. It rioted over re gions that are tow treeless and cov ered with glaciers. Further south in this Tertiary period marsh grass grew so luxuriently that it piled upon itself in such quantities that with the compres sion of the weight of ages that have followed it still remains in the form BIG RETURN FROM DOLLAR FOr a dollar given to a stranger eight years ago Joseph Clair, a Phila delphia druggist, may receive an es tate Of over $125,000. Eight years ago a man who was evidently suffering from the effects of the night before came into the drug store and told Clair that he was up against it. had spent his last cent and needed enough to get a bite to eat. He asked for a quarter. After a short talk Clair gave the man a dollar and the stranger depart ed with the remark: “You’ll never re gret this, young maa. It will be rich ly repaid.” . * Clair forgot the Incident. Five years ago the man again came into the store and recalling the dollar loan made the druggist a present of a hand some gold-headed cane. Clair did not forget the matter so quickly then, but he was thoroughly surprised a few’ days ago when he received a letter from a firm of lawyers in Rockdale, Wyo„ saying that Joseph Waters, a wealthy rancher near that city, had left his entire property, valued at over $125,000, to him. USES OF FINGER PRINTS In the Angentine Republic the identification cards of policemen, coachmen, cab drivers, commission aires ‘'and servants have, since 1896, borne their finger-prints. Upon all passports and bank receipts for de posits the imprint of the thumb must be made at the time of delivery. In Roumania, since 1903, the thumb print has been substituted for the cross made instead of signature by persons who cannot write. In the Philippine islands those who cannot write are not obliged to fee identified by witnesses at savings banks, but merely have to make their mark with their thumb. The same system has been used in the banks of Bengal for fifty years. In France, to put an end to the fraud of enlistment, desertion and re-enlistment for the bounty paid in the Foreign Legion, every msai’s fin ger prints are taken and kept on file.

Astonished, De Wolfe HopperTeds a good story about the domestic unhappiness of an other actor. The hero of the joke was a man who had married because the woman had much money, although no beauty. Naturally, after Cue wedding ceremony and the acquisition of the bride’s financial resources, the hus band w T as never very attentive to her. Another member of the company in which the couple were appearing was, however, far more appreciative of the lady’s charms, and proceeded to make love to her In an ardent but stealthy manner. The grand finale came one evening when the actor discovered the other man kissing his wife. The fond lover stood petrified with fear, and expected to be shot down the next moment. No such thing happened. The out raged husband only lifted his hands tow’ard the ceiling with a gesture of Intense surprise, and exclaimed: “Merciful heavens! And he didn’t even have to!” Probably No Exception. “Jones has invented an airship.” “Then it’s bound to be a success,” “Why so?” “All his other schemes have gone up,” PHYSICIAN SAID ECZEMA CAME FROM TEETHING “When my little girl vas about eight months old, she was taken with a very irritating breaking out, which came on face, neck and back. When she first cam© down with it. It cam© In little watery-lik© festers under her eyes, and on her chin, then after a few days it would dry down in scaly, whit© scabs. In the daytime she was quite worrysom© and w r ould dig and scratch her face nearly all the time. "I consulted our physician and found she was suffering from eczema, which he said came from her teething. I used the ointment he gave me and without any relief at all. Then I wrote for a book on Cuticura, and pur chased some Cuticura Soap and Oint ment at the drug store. I did aa 1 found directions in the Cuticura Book let, and when she was one year old, she was entirely cured.

For some days I’ve bad a sneak ing and guilty feeling that 1 ought to visit him and make some comment on the obvious superiorities of bis off spring. I couldn’t bring myself to do It, though, because, according to my w r ay of thinking, no baby Is human un til It is at least one year old. I’m not very keen about associating with in fants, anyway, but I draw the line absolutely until the year mark rolls around. "By way of apology, however, I decided to call up my friend on the telephone. The first question he ask ed was why I hadn’t been over to see Toodles. ‘“Well, old man,’ I said, ‘l’ve been intending to get around to see that boy of yours. In fact, I made note of it six weeks ago.’ “‘lndeed!’he answered, and never before have I known a man to inject so much sarcasm in one small word. ‘Well, it happens/ he continued, ‘that the boy has only been In this world three weeks.’ “It took me ten minutes to regain his friendship.” t Sad Excuse. They were twitting a friend who stuttered, upon the fact that he had never been married. “I kn-kn-know, boys, that I’ve never b-b-been married, but I was pre-pre pretty near it once.” “How was that?” the inquired. “Well, you see, I ask-ask-asked a girl to hav-hav-have me, and she said that she’d rather be ex-ex-excused, and I was such a fo-fo-fool, I ex-ex-excused her.” When Your Eyes Need Care Try Murine Eye Remedy.
