Meteoric dust is composed of minute hollow spheres of steel that look U der the microscope like leaden shot They are infinitely finer than grains -o sand. Their origin is interesting. Meteors, or shooting stars as they are generally called, have fromn the begin. aing of things been bombarding the world at a rate estimated by the high eat authority at many thousands an hour. Owing to the earth's protecUag envelope of air very few of these mls siles reach us. In sie meteors vary from a few ounces to many pounds in weight, and it Is only very oecasion ally that one is of sumient dimensions to survive the passage of i80 to 1001 miles through an atmosphere increas tig in density as the earth is ap-l Iproeached. The speed at which they eater the atmosphere, calculated at not less than thirty-five miles a second, generates such Intense heat by trie tion that the Iron of which the meteor prinelpally consists is immediately re duced to an Incandescent vapor, which is the luminous train so frequently seen in the heavens on a clear night. The vapor rapidly cools and con denses in the form of these minute partles, which assume the spherical r, as does shot durimng its fall from i the top of a tower. Finally the lit tle spheres are scattered by the w d In and currents In the upper regions and * gradually descend in their milllons uas I ma invisible but never ending shower. c The perfect condition in which the l spheres are found is due to the pres ence of certain noncorrosive elements t fom d by analysis to be present in the 5 metal of meteors which have come to earth. t The.e little spheres can be found In t almost any sample of dust, partlles i where It has collected in sheltered re ceases r hollows, as In the gutter, eo the housetop or round the roots of old trees and dry ditches.

Kemper, who kept everybody about of him in a state of terror on account of rd his predilection for the code. He knew Ira of every meeting between prominent all men that had occurred in the colonies ce. from the settlement of Virginia.

Kemper would scowl, then his re features would relax and he would ed say, "Certainly; it was accidental," M_ leaving those present to infer that if "' it had been intended it could only be be washed out in blood. One day there came to the town a quiet, unobtrusive young man who, of knowing nothing of Kemper's reputa , tion for ferocity, was not so careful as a others in avoiding offending him. Kemper was a Tory, while the stran ger was a Whig. That was at a time when the storm of revolution was Ir brewing and opinions on one side or Mt the other were running high.

Kemper demurred. Several days passed, and the stranger who had pulled the terrible man's nose still ,r lived. Then Kemper. finding that those who had stood in awe of him were treating him with contempt. yielded. It was agreed that the meeting should take place at the tavern in a p room on the second floor and at 10 o'clock at night The shutters were Sclosed so that not even ia ray of star light could get In, and every article of furniture was removed from the room. There were two doors to the chamber, and each of the principals was let ina to It by one of these doors. Once in they were to remain standing by their resapective doors till the word "Fire!" was given by a man outside with a stenterian voice, after which each shoold be at liberty to kill the other as soon as u he pleased.
