Water Reaches His Coffin Jnst Be fore He Is Disinterred, but He Fails to Come Out of the Trance. Reeding, Pa., June 29. Prof. W. W. Kretz's experiment, in which he allowed himself to be bnried last night in a box under six feet of earth while he was in a hypnotic condition, terminated abruptly ihis morning because of the heavy rain. After he fell un der the hypnotic influence exercis ed by himself and was buried he was to have remained under guard until tonight, but when the rain storm set in after midnight the vicinity of the professor's grave at the fair ground was deluged. Those on watch became alarmed lest the water should enter the coffin and the hypuotist be,drown ed. When the storm showed no sign of abatiug at 8 o'clock this morning the watchers summoned assistance and the coffin was un earthed. When raised to the sur face it was fouud that the water had already begun to soak into the coffin. Had it been allowed to re main in the ground a few minutes, longer its occupant would un doubtedly have beeu drowned. Kretz, though somewhat wet, was still sound asleep. He had controlled his influence so that he would not awake until the specified time. Half a dozen members of the Berks county society of occult science exerted all their influence to arouse him. After three hours' work he partly revived, but he has beeu m a sort of stupor all day. Kretz is much disappointed at the interruption of his sleep and says there was no necessity for it, even though there has been a heavy rain all day. He aunonnces his intention .of repeatiug the ex periment next Sunday morning, but the police may interfere to pre veut it. VATICAN AIMS. Will Use Philippine Question to Establish Diplomatic Rela tions. Rome, July 12. There is appar ently a disposition on the part of the Vatican to take advantage of the Philippine question to forward its desire for the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Uoii ed States. The Vatican authorities hope that the question of the pur-, chase of the friar lands and other matter involving the payment of mouey will render indispensable the continuance of relations initiat ed by Governor Taft for at least two years, while they are also; hopeful of reserving the question of the withdrawal of the friars from the islands so as to prolong these relations even longer.

Excepted to Be Fastest Boat in Our Navy. New York, July ,12. The hat tleship Maine, which has been un der construction in Cramps' ship yards since the spring of 1S99, will leave for her builders1 test off the Delaware Capes Tuesday after noon, says a Philadelphia dis patch to the Herald. The trial will take place on Thursday, and it is expected the Maine will be again mored at the ship yard on Friday. Easily the most powerful battle ship tlwTt the Cramps yard has turned out for the United States navy, the Maine also is planned to be the fastes-t. She must attain eighteen knots speed, the same re quirements as for the Russian bat tleship Retvk'.tn, recently complet ed at the -nl. In most respects the Maine and the Retvizau are alike. The keel of the ue'w Maine was laid on February 15, 1899, the an niversary of the destruction of the old Manikin Havana harbor., There was a delay in her construction, resulting from the controversy over the question of armor plate. She was launched on July 27, 1901, Miss Mary Preble of Portland, Me., a descendant of Commodore Pre ble, berV" her sponsor. The Mlkne is 388 fee: long ou the load wer line. Her beam ex treme is 72 feet 2 K' inches ; her draught 23 feet 10' inches, and her displacement 12,500 tons. B'OUND REMAINS OF ST. JUSTIN. Skeleton of One of the Early Martyrs Discovered in Italy. Some children while playing iu a storeroom attached to the parish church of Monticello, uear Vicen za, in Italy, discovered a large old box, and, braking it open, they fouud iu Ja skeleton and several sacerdtfral ornaments. Tjrparish priest was iuforraed & the discovery, and he soon ob tained convincing proofs that the skeleton was that of St. Justin, who lived about 250 years after Christ, aud who was killed during the persesution of the Christians, which were authorized by the Roman emperors of that era. The body of St. Justin was re moved from the catacombs iu 160G by order of Pope Paul V., and three years later Antonio Thieuo obtained permission to remove it to Monticello. For more than a century no one has known where the body was and its discovery is therefore very welcome, QUEEN WILHEL- MINA'S CROWN. Queen Wilhelmins's crown is very gorgeous. It is of dull gold, ionIy the edSes beiD Polished. It consists or. a crimson velvet cap in closed in a circle set with sapphires and emeralds. The imperial arches terminate iu sixteen points, eight of which are surmounted by large single peails and the other eight, bentoward the center and there crowned with the globe and cross, are set with nine pearls each, which ,are graduated in size, the' smallest being plaeedjat the .top. j y THE RAZOR-BACK HOG. He-Fills a Long-Felt Want in the -State of--Wisconsin. A correspondent from Madison, Wis., say: Until Prof. Carlyle, of the Wis consin experiment station, con ceived the idea of crossing the raz or back hur on improved stock, he waspopulatly supposed to be of value only for crossing with fast freight trains with the object of making the railroad company take the product at remunerative rates. Carlyle, however.conceived the no tion that his fecnudity and good digestion might be put to good use. The razor back is notoriously pro lific, and as veracions witnesses have seen him perform feats of gastron.mjy calculated to force goats aud ostriches to suicide from pure chagriu, Carlyle, conclading the improved stock at Madison waa short of nhese requisite qualities sent to Arkansas and secured sev eral of the kind that, when reduced to pork, eutail the expense of store lard with which to fry.it. Results have exceeded his fondest expect ations. The Simon pure "razon backs" at the station are neither handsome nor pacific in appearance. The visitor instinctively concludes uot to attempt familiarity until Carlyle gives assurance that it is a a case of apperances being deceptive Their progeny is however more propossessiug and the lover of porcine character will find much to attract him in the litters of grades that are plentiful iu the- hog house. So far as fecundity is concerned they are superb, said theenthusias tic Carlyle. We had a number of due Berking but disappointment, but with the arrival of the razor backs from the South this disap peared. The cross resulted in some splendid litters, and some of the best female stock we have on the farm is half razor back. They improve rapidly under domestica tion and make splendid mothers." Pure bred porcine stock is often lamentably deficient both in poten cy and digestion. Razor back prepotency is proverbial and its digestion phenomenal. The crosses are healthy in every respect. WAS PROUD' OF HIS CHOICE. A southerner who attended the Tildenclnb dinner in New York the other evening listened to. Cleveland and the other speakers .with much interest and then recalleda -story of the big man who originally hailed ffom Buffalo. During his first term as president Mr. Cleve land was traveling in the south on one occasion and stopped at Weldon. N. C, where a crowd had assembled. One old back woodsman pressed forward and grasped the president's hand say ing: "Fve voted for many a president, bat I never seed one before." Then, after a pause, he added: "Andyou're such a whop per, too." WHISTLING IN CHURCH.
