Meteoric dust is composed of minute
hollow spheres of steel that look U

They are infinitely finer than grains

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

the top of a tower. Finally the lit

The perfect condition in which the l
spheres are found is due to the pres

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. One
al evening Kemper was in a tavern tell

said that he didn't care it it was. He

off. His friends were surprised. They
told him that either he must fight or
forever lose his reputation as a duel
Y ist. 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.
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.
Ten mianutes after the signal bhad
ban given not a sound had been
heard. But the chamber was a large

elapsed, and another shot was heard.
Then the doors were thrown open, and
these outside rushed in with candles.
Only one of the partlelpants, the
