"Lord of the World," an idol in the temple at Puri in Ores sa. India, was formed out of an irregu lar pyramidal black stone with two large diamonds for eyes and with its nose and mouth paited vermilion, an I exchange says. It is said more than 1 1,000.000 pilgrims formerly visited the i temple and god each year. It was cus tomary for many of the fanatics to throw themselves under the car bear Ing the idol to be crushed by its wheels. The temple of Juggernaut was built in 11l!8 at a cost estimated at $2, 500,000. Twelve persons were said to have been killed at Juggernaut's fes tival held in 1873. Year by year at tendance at the festival dwindled until 1878, when the celebration was such a failure that it was discontinued. Sight in Plants. That plants actually may see does not seem so impossible to those who have watched a grapevine reach across a space of several feet and obtain support for its extending growth by fastening its tendrils to neighbor ing objects. The long tendrils sent out by the grapevine sweep in long courses through the air until they touch some fixed object, such as a tree limb, a post or a wire, around which they quickly turn and bind them selves tenaciously. The seeming ac- I curacy with which the tendrils reach t out for distant supports is almost I enough to convince one that the plants a see what they are reaching for. An- t other example of the seemingly intel- t ligent and accurately directed actions 4 of plants is furnished by the insecti- I vorous plants, such as the Venus Fly- I Trap, which instantly closes upon and absorbs as food insects that alight I upon it. Eucalyptus Tree as Windmill. t A growing eucalyptus, partially cleared of leaves and branches, has I been used as a windmill tower by a California farmer. In search of good running water, the farmer found a spring underneath a grove of euca lyptus trees. it was found that in order to erect a windmill standard over the spring it would be necessary to sacrifce the beautiful trees. Finally solving the problem of building the windmill without destroying the trees, he mounted the fan on one of the cen tral trees. Clearing away much of the foliage on the nearest trees, he ran braces to the windmill,. and se cured a machine which has given him entire satisfaction.-Popular Science Monthly. Beauty In the Mexican's VoIce. ?ext to the love of dress 1 was most struck with the fineness of the voice and the beauty of intonations of both sexes (of the Mexicans). It is a pleas ure simply to listen to the sound of the language, before I could attach any meaning to it. They have a good deal of the creole drawl, but it is va nred with an occasional extreme rapid ity of utterance, in which they seem to skip from consonant to consonant, until. lighting upon a broad open vowel. they rest upon that to restore a the balance of sound. A common bul- c lock driver delivering a message I seemed to speak like an ambassador c at an audience. In fact, they some- t times ap. ared to me to be a people i on whom a curse had fallen and t stripped them of everything but their a pride, thrir manner and their voices.- A From "Three Years Before the Mast," c by R.

It is the dictum of scientists that It is better to suffer the worst torments from pain and torture from sleepless ness than to resort to the allurements and temporary soothing and lullabies 8 of drugs, for once the drug habit ise .ormed the victim is directly within the grasp of the devil ani damnation. This is the testimony of all who have submitted to the lure of opium, mor phine, chloral, hashish, cocaine, heroin and kindred drugs, which have so mul tiplied within the last few years eas I to tell the whole story of the increase I of the habit, which may be accepted iFn a large sense as indicative of the increase of insomnia and the condi ions that lead to Insomnia.

Slip the top edge of one side of the box from the tin binding by which the box is held together (Fig. 2). fold the side over on to the inside of the box bottom, and glue or sew it to the bottom (Fig. 3). The doll hammock (Fig. 4) is made of string. You will need a board 24 inches long and 12 inches wide on which to form the hammock network (A, Fig. 6). Drive a row of nails into the board, close to one end, about one Inch apart, then take a stick and drive a row of nails into it at the same dis tances apart (B, Fig. 5). Stick B is held to board A, by means of a pair of heavy rubber bands looped over a pair of nails C driven into board A and over the end nails in strip B. With board A and strip B thus pr. pared, take the string, tie one end to one end nail in strip B, and loop it back and forth from one row of nails to the other, as shown in Fig. 6. Cut up 100 or more very short pieces of string. Then, beginning about one Inch from the row of nails in board A, catch the strands to gether, two by two, and tie with the pieces of string. Tie hard, secure knots. With one row of knots tied, make a second row one inch away from the first, picking the pairs of B 6 strands that will make the knots come halfway between those of the first row. Then make a third row one Inch from the second row, with the knots in line with those of the first row, a fourth row one Inch from the third row in line with the second, and so on until stick B is reached. As the strands are tied they will be come shorter, and this shortening will be taken care of by the rubber hands, which will allow stick It to ilide along board A, as shown In Fig. 6 With the strands knotted, remove the loops from one row of nails and slip them over a short stick (Fig 7) Then tie together the opposite loops, as shown in Fig 8.

"It's carnivorous," he said. "They all "What!" exctalmed the girl, opening her eye's. "The snout of a porpoise; the teeth of a crocodile." There was no reply to this, nothing but a look of wonder. "The sternum of an ornithorhynchus combined with the ,addles. of a whale." "Oh, my good gracious," exclaimed the girl, "he's crazy!" "Fish vertebrae, lizard's head." "Father!" cried the girl in terror. But her father was out in the fields and did not hear. "Four paddles anu an enormous tall Must have surely been aquatic." This was quite enough for the farm er's daughter. She had no doubt that the visitor was mad, and it behooved her to beat a retreat. She dare not run for fear of being followed' and murdered. She was of good pluck, and, fixing her eyes on Ned's, she backed toward the house. On reaching the door she slipped inside, bolting it be hind her. "What the dickens is the matter with that girl?" said NIed to himself, sud denly aroused from his reverie about the ichthyosaurus. The farmer's daugh ter fled through the house, out by the back door and, keeping in line with outhouses and trees to screen her from the maniac, found her father at the plow. "What in the world is the matter, Cynthle':" he asked, stopping the horses and looking at her in astonishment. "IIave you seen a ghostY' "Worse than that, dad. There's a crazy man on t'other side of the house." "How do you know he's crazy?" "Fust off he looked as if he wanted to kiss me; then he borrowed a spade and went to where you turned up the rock t'other day. When hlie come back he was talkln' oomney--nabout some kind of a beast with a head like a fish and teeth like a crocodile and paddles for to swlin and an awful long tall." "Are you sure lie's Itnadl?" "Malad as a March h:lre." "I'll go and see him." "Don't you do it, pop; he'll kill you, sure."
