" "And I," the second said, wilu mocking sighs, "Am that ambition which, in splendid glances, levelly, aware a uttered naught save truth, Bot] guise, ;n day and night was ever by your side. "And I." a third exclaimed, reprcachful eyed. "Am that fair faith yon cherished, precious wise." He met their That each h and yet He felt no smarting of remorse's stings.

London.—Official statistics just is sued supply the death rate in 1907 due to misadventure in the Italian, Swiss and Austrian Alps. The num ber of lives lost was seventy-five, the majority being Swiss and Germans. Next came the British and after them the Italians. There were 350 serious accidents. The chief cause of the fatality was fool-hardiness, which is becoming more prevalent every year, in at tempting ascents without a guide. The Field of Labor.

The Milan fire brigade has also ex perimented recently with a steam au tomobile pumping engine bought re cently from a firm in Saxony. The chassis, a U-shaped frame, resting on springs attached to the axles, carries the boiler, the motor, and the mech anisms for the propulsion of the car and for the pump. The rear wheels of the engine have a diameter of 3 feet. The front wheels have solid India rubber tires, while the largo wheels have double solid tires. A special friction differential appara tus allows one wheel to go forwa^ the other to work backward, t guided in places where the streets have sharp curves. The motor propul sion of both the pump and the car has two cylinders, with the so-called Stephenson disposition. The pump is a two-cylinder machine. The fuel can be either coal or petroleum; but pet roleum is found much more conveni ent, as the stoker only turns the tap on and the flame is immediately work ing. Five firemen and a stoker can be ac commodated on the car, which, so lad en, can run as a mean speed of 15 1-2 miles per hour, although on a smooth road and with no obstacles in the way of other traffic it has run easily at the rate of 22 miles. Experiments have shown that the car can deliver 950 quarts of water per minute at a suffi cient height. The machine, when run ning, requires 30 horsepower, and the pump 25 horsepower—Harper's Week ly. The Joke Was on Her. A woman member of the bar in New York gives to our correspondent the following correspondence with the res ervation that no names shall be quot ed; 'I am one of the few women," sùe says, "who can see a joke, even If aimed at myself. I do not feel that In this case I came off first best." The first letter was from a man law yer and was as follows: Dear Miss Blank—We agree to the compromise as proposed in your favor of this date. Not because your client has a just right to such settlement, but from the fact that we do not care to open a «contest with a woman law yer." To which this reply was sent: "Gentlemen—1 note yours agreeing to a settlement, although I cannot congratulate you on your gallantry in begging the question. Like the origi nal Adam, you seem inclined to- hide behind a woman's petticoat." And the following letter closed the correspondence. "Dear Miss Blank—If you will turn to the early pages of Genesis you will discover that Eve did not wear a petticoat."—Ptick-Me-Up. Cigar Delays a Train. A Montmartre tradesman delayed railway traffic for twenty minutes at a suburban station yesterday, because the officials would not add a smoking carriage to the train on which he was about to return to Paris. The occupantsof a non-smoking com partment objected to the tradesman's cigar, so the tradesman, still puffing his cigar, lay down on the line in front of the engine. He announced that he would semain there until he had finished smoking. Various officials were summoned to ar gue with him, and finally, when the train had been delayed twenty minutes and the irate passengers demanded that it proceed regardless of the tradesman, the latter was forcibly re moved and arested.—Paris Dispatch in London Express.

There she was, insulated complete, as you might say, and look what happened.

The extraor dinary phenomenon it presents of a tremendous evolution of radiant en ergy, going on perpetually without combustion, without chemical change of any kind, without alteration of molecular structure, and without ap preciable loss of weight—for the loss of weight is estimated at only one gram per square inch of surface in ten million years—is an apparent violation of the law of conservation of energy, and bids fair to revolutionize some long-accepted ideas of matter and force. A vast amount of experimenta tion has already been conducted with radium and others of the radioactive group of metals—polonium, actinium, uranium and thorium—and much spec ulation and some interesting hypoth eses have been evolved. From these, it is believed, a great deal will be learned about the constitution of mat ter and the correlation of the vital and physical forces, more, in all probabil ity, than from any substances which have ever been discovered before. Radium bromide is the strongest ra dium salt yet produced, and there is little of it In existence, the ajaount having been estimated at four gnuns.

The house in which Charles Dickens was born, 393 Commercial road, Ports mouth, was sold by auction at Ports mouth the other day and realized £1,125. There were only two bidders —the mayor, Sir W. T. Dupree, who was acting on behalf of the town, and a competitor, whose name was not disclosed. The bidding started at $1,500 and in less than two minutes had advanced by $500 bids to $3,500. Then the competition rose by $250 to $4,250. At this point Mr. J. Clark, who was the auctioneer, consented to take twenty-five pounds advances and in less than a quarter of an hour from the opening of the sale the bid ding reached $5,625, at which price the house was knocked down to the mayor. Mr. F. G. Kitton, represent ing the Boz Club and the Dickens' fellowship, congratulated the mayor on his purchase of the house for the town and promised the assistance of the society he represented in convert ing the place into an interesting Dick ens museum. The auctioneer men tioned that half a million strangers visited Portsmouth every year, and if a tenth of these visited the house and paid sixpence each the purchase money would be reimbursed in the first year. The mayor replied that the town had paid more for .the house than its intrinsic value, but he defend ed its conduct that it could not afford to allow such an opportunity to es cape.—London Times.

Perhaps none of our plants is more common or more familiar than the dandelion, and certainly none i« more wonderful, says a contributor to Har per's Magazine. First of all, it is not a native, but was introduced from Europe, whence have come many of our worst weeds, fitted by centuries of struggle in cultivated field to over come the native plants of a continent wher j^jjltivation had previously been practically unknown and where na tives had had no opportunity to adapt ing themselves to the conditions of civilized agriculture. One of the dandelion's strongest points is the ability to obtain nourish ment under strong competition and in unfavorable situations. A deep, strong, perennial taproot draws all available nourishment and moisture from sur face and subsoil, stores nournishment during the winter, and enables the plant to start far and away ahead of most of its competitors. The dan delion blossom is one of the first to appear in the fields and parks of New York City. This same taproot is ex ceedingly bitter, which very likely pro tects it from destruction by moles and other animals. At least I do no>t remember having seen a root that had been disturbed by animals of any kind. But only a small portion of its food comes from the soil. Air and sun shine are Just as necessary, for the air ie food and the sunshine is diges tion for our vegetable neighbors. Note the shape of the leaves; narrow at base and widening to the outer end, they form a dense rosette that not only gets for the dandelion all the air and sunshine coming its way, but Bmothera all but the most sturdy com petitors. Here lies the secret of the dandelion's presence in lawns and walks and open waste places. In lawns the grass is kept low, so that it can not overtop and shade the dandelion, while its own leaves lie so low and close that they are little hurt by the mower and can smother the grass un derneath. har AT THE CONCERT.

" "The old man puffed away at his cigar, somewhat feebly, I thought," says Howe, "and seemed buried in reverie.
