The most impressive actof Amer ican heroism in China was the scal ing of the wall of Peking by Calvin P. Titus, a musician of the Fifteenth Regiment Hand. When the Ameri cans reached.the south wall of the Chinese capital, young Titus, a lad of nineteen, rushed forward with others to the wall, which is thirty feet high. Heing the best climber, he outfooted his companions; and, on reaching the top of the wall, he threw down a rope and helped the dment up. It was a gallant deed, |his lad was exposed to Chinese [om the moment his head lose I the battlement-. The/Young a native of Iowa^-alid joined liment a short/fime before it I Chin.

It is estimated that no less than 10,(WO are carried nightly on trains, and that 10,000 more are waiting to steal n ride at the same time. The Pennsylvania Railroad has taken a firm stand in the mat ter, and has equipped a special po lice force for the purpose of prevent- , fug trespassing. Some of the farm- ; ers, however, do not approve of this j action, as they obtain mlieh of their extra help in harvest times from 1 the drifting population. ! In the botanical garden of Her lin is to be seen a cactus which has grown for seven years in a glass flask sealed by fusion; it was pre sented by a German pharmacist, I.udgiw Rust, lie explains the growth of the plant by the fact that the soil in which it grows contains a certain quantity of spores of fun gi, which germinate from time to time and cover the sides of the ttask with a greenish layèr. These, in dy ing, furnish the Carbonic acid nec essary for the life of the cactus. This explanation appeared satisfac tory at first, b)#t it was then asked from whence came tfifccarjj^mlc acid for the fungi; again, the pjwhomena of nutrition which take place in the gmen parts of tfuÿjGtot require an excess of carbonic ifeid. This seems, in fact, to be furnished by the process of putrefaction which, takes place jn the soil. Another question which is more difficult to answer îb the origin of the water which Is necessary to maintain the I life of the plant; this may bederiv frorti the decomposition of the ellulose. Howevet these questions lay be answered, the fact remains that the plant lives and develops in hernieticallp closed medium. The Ixperiment is not difficult to carry pjt, and its study may 16.nl to in eresting results. A scientist looking for microbes lys there are absolutely none on tthe Swiss mbuntains at ah altitude of 2,000 feet. Here is the place for purity party and scaremongers who are fo.rever horrifying the pub lic with the dismal fear of microbes. They would have to take their sup : ply with them, most of which are Useful to man. It is pleasing to ob serve that the microbe does not give himself lofty airs, but, as a fellow creature, comes down to our level and dwells cheerily ih our midst.

Rîitlç Killed 6y a Cannon ?hile the Marriage was • Going On. , 1 Recalling the historic incident clustering about South Carolina's Executive Mansion. Mrs. Thaddeus Horton writes, in the October La dies Home Journal, of the shock ing tragedy that occurred there to ward the close of the war. ThiB was the death of the daughter of Gover nor Pickens immediately after her marriage to Lieutenant Le Rochelle, "On the afternoon preceding the evening of the marriage the North ern Army began shelling Columbia, but preparations for the wedding continued. Finally the guests were all assembled and the clergyman was proceeding with the solemn ceremony, and had just joined the right hands of the happy pair, when, suddenly, there was an awful crash, and a ball from the enemy's can non penetrated the mansion and burst in the middle of the marriage chamber, scattering its death deal ing missiles in every direction. There were screams and a heart rending groan; mirrors crashed; the house shook; women fainted; and walls rocked to and fro. "When the first confusion was over it was discovered that in all the crowd only one person was in jured, and that was the bride her self. She lay partly on the floor and partly in her lover's arms, crushed and bleeding, pale but very beauti ful, her bridal gown drenched with warm blood, and a great cut in her breast. Laying lier on a lounge, the frantic bridegroom besought her by every term of tenderness and en dearment, to allow the ceremony to proceed, to which she weakly gave consent, arid . lying like a crushed flower, no less white than the ca mellias of her bridal bouquet, her breath coming in short gasps, and the blood flowing from this great, angi.y wound, she murmured 'ves' to the clergyman, and received her husband's first kiss. A moment more and all was over. "She was laid to rest under the magnolias, and the heartbroken bridegroom, reckless with despair, returned to his regiment." i j j Practical Joke Drives A Voting: Woman Insane.
