Tho first fust nuill on a ruihviiy west of tlio Mississippi was rim over the IlunuUml und St. Joseph line, a northern M.issnui'1 ruilriuul between IlannUinl on the Mississippi and St. Joseph on the Missouri. This road was completed more than W years ao, and In April u test fast mail run was made. The mails were then carried overland from St, Joseph to Sacra mento, and, in order to pet a govern ment contract it was necessary to establish a new record for speed. The locomotive was a crude affair, liurnint; wood, the rails were light, and the track was not ballusted. Add Clarl; was the engineer, and his, instructions were to make u record that would stand for 50 years. Moreover, he came near doing it in fact, he did do it, so far as that particular railway was concerned. The distance from Hanni bal to St. Joseph is "OG miles, and the fast mail covered the route lu a few seconds over four hours, or at the rate of 50 miles an hour for the run. This Included two stops for fuel, but these were brief, for small armies of men were waltiug, each with an armful of wood. t'MifUtion found vn.nv reddened Willi definitely decided upon until our in te or till so il;-r I ""s""ur naru irom; kiiouiu i.iarK in Germany the term "snow worm" is applied to the larva of a beetle often found in the snow, -ays a writer in the Scientific American. species of insect are .eoi,mi.'ily lolinil such time as open weather enables on glaciers.

In the little Iiarbary coast town of Biskra the Moorish coffee houses w.tIi rah customers and Turkish atmos phere seem like set scenes in n stage production, while the far-famed danc ing girls obviously exhibit their skill for the pleusure of the foreigners alone. Without the foreign visitor Bikra would be an ordinary oasis town on the edge of the desert. Since Robert Ulchcns' "Garden of Allah" was written with Biskra as the background, many people have come to visit , the scene of the story. Others come on doctor's orders, for the cli mate Is said to be beneficial to rheuma tism and other diseases. Others come merely to see the sights, which are widely advertised. LEOPOLD P1LS, Prop.

China Has Source of Valuable Supply, But Its Poisonous Quality Limits Its Use. Varnish Is produced in China from a tree commonly spoken of as the var nish tree, but known botanieully as rhus vernicifera, which Is found in abundance in the mountains of Unpen. Kweiclmw and Szechwan. The varnish Is taken from the tree after it Is about six Inches in diameter by tapping at intervals of from live to seven years, until the tree is fifty or sixty years of tme. A good-sized tree will yield from five to seven pounds of varnish. The natural color of the crude var nish as applied Is black. It is con sidered the most Indestructible varnish known. One peculiarity is that it hard ens only in a moist atmosphere. In China it is erroneously known among the foreign communities as "Xlnspo varnish," probably because It first came into contact with foreign trade there, writes Commercial At tache Julian Arnold from lVking. Many persons tire poisoned when they come into even atmospheric con tact with this varnish, which fact, un fortunately, reduces its trade possi bilities 'enormously. As yet no meth od has been discovered whereby this poisonous quality et:n be counteracted. 11. 1.OLINCillOUSE. Manager CALIENTE, NEV. j Honest Values In Groceries, Meats, -Vegetables, Fruits, Etc.

The answer is: llecause snakes had their cradle elsewhere nut! couldn't cross the Irish sea. They originated,' apparently, lu Asia and spread easily over Europe, and got across in -considerable numbers into Great Britain, by aid of a now sub merged "land bridge," but the Irish sen whs too deep for that kind of bridge, and so snakes and toads never reached the Emerald Isle, und few reptiles of any kind succeeded In get ting there.
