Through the persistent barking of a faithful collie dog who was trying hard to summon the assistance of hu man hands, the body of his master, Ernest Alleman was found in the ruins of his dwelling that had been destroyed by fire. Alleman was a recluse, except for his dog, living in the outskirts of New Bedford. Mass.

An Englishman bought an upright piano at an auction sale 25 years ago for SBO. It was, of course, second hand. For a time it was used in a provincial kindergarten. It went to London and had constant use. When the war broke out it retired to a re pository and did not see the light again antil last month. Last month a maker of pianos called to see it, and offered $l5O for it. The next day a man who overhauled it said he could get $250 for it cash down. The day after that a tuner considered it worth S3OO. The story is a striking Illustration of changing values.

Anew calculation of the ape of the sun was made recently by M. Peron net, who read a paper on the subject before the French Academy of Science. Here is his version in a nutshell: On the principle that the mean tempera ture of a star remains approximately equal to the surface temperature it had when fix*st formed, and giv ing the sun an internal temperature of 12,000 degrees Centigrade, or dou ble that of its surface, and calculating its mass to be 2 by 10.30 kilograms, the sun cannot have been formed more than between 2,000,000 and 0,000,000 of years ago. A star with a surface temperature of 000,000 degrees Centi grade would have been formed from a nebula in 300 days and one with 6,- 000,000,000 degrees in seven hours. Smyrna Fig Trade.

How ever, this advance in supply has not kept pace with the demand, and prices of figs have steadily risen.

LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI HOME H TOWN nELPsH FAVOR WELL-KEPT GROUNDS Real-Estate Buyers Will Invariably Give Preference to House With Attractive Surroundings. It pays to add a few frills when making a home, writes Edward Irving Farrington, in the Philadelphia Ledger. This fact was illustrated when a cer tain man owning a small suburban property found it necessary to make a quick sale. Having a keen apprecia tion of the beautiful in nature, this man had surrounded his modest house with ornamental trees and flowering shrubs. They had been growing for onlj a few' years, to be sure, but they had become so well established that all appearance of newness had dis appeared. Now, this man w T as able to obtain for his property 25 per cent more than a neighbor who had a cost lier house, but who had neglected its external embellishment. Moreover, he sold his property several months before his neighbor could find a pur chaser. Now, of course, the average man will not plant grounds for the prime purpose of making his place salable. It must be admitted, in passing, though, that real-estate men the coun try over are beginning to learn that they can get a much larger price for their new houses if they plant the grounds before offering them for sale. From this point of view’ of the house owner, however, the free use of trees and shrubs is desirable in two ways. It adds greatly to his enjoyment and comfort and to that of his agreeable knowledge that these same trees and shrubs are rapidly growing into mon ey. If he has any doubt upon the lat ter point he has only to put up a “For Sale’’ sign on his front *ate. It is al ways the house which has been given an inviting, homelike appearance that catches the eyes of a prospective buyer.

A w’ell-laid garden makes the face of the country of no account; let that be low’ or high, grand or mean, you have made a beautiful abode w’orthy of man. If the landscape is pleasing, the garden shows it —if tame, it excludes it. A little grove, which ny farmer can find or cause to grow’ near his house, w’ill in a few years make cata racts and chains of mountains quite unnecessary to his scenery; and he is so contented with his valleys, wood lands, orchards, and river, that Niag ara. and the Notch of the White moun tains, and Nantasket beach, are super fluities. —Emerson, Cut Cost bf City Lighting. City administrations anxious to cut down running expenses will find much of interest in the proposal recently advanced by two illuminating en gineers. A duplex electric street light is their suggestion, the globe to con tain two lamps instead of one as at present. These lamps Mire to be placed tip to tip; one is to be of 600 to 1,000 cp; the other of 100 to 250 cp. From sundown until midnight, accord ing to this scheme, the stronger lamp would burn. At midnight the city cur rent would be momentarily reduced, causing a small mercury cut-out in each globe to extinguish the big lamp and turn on the smaller. —Popular Me chanics Magazine.
