Said Vice Presl-1 dent Marshall recently: “Who- ever can. even at a sacrifice of some thing which for the moment appears necessary, should come to see a real work of art never equaled, even by a mirage. If there be any one in Amer ica with a thirst for knowledge and for beauty and a longing for a liberal edu cation. such a one can obtain it here. “Thi* is the university of the world.

Said Dr. Fred erick J. V. Skiff: “Here the world is shown In epitome. The visitor from whatever realm here enters into his na tive land.” Apart from its costly and compre hensive displays, the great Exposition is an inspiration In itself.

The Audion amplifier, for example, makes it possible for a man in New York city to deliver an address through the tele phone to a large audience in S:in Fran cisco, 3.000 miles away. Through thei use of heat waves the intensity of the voice vibrations is Increased to such an extent that, although the orator may deliver his address In a low voice into the telephone in New York. In San Francisco It Is possible to Increase the sound in rolnme sufficient to fill a large hall. On the other hand, the New York -speaker's address may lie distributed through telephonic receiving disks at tached to each chatr In the hail In Ban Francisco.

As a help to visitors the Exposition maintains the Exposi tion Hotel Bureau, an official activity which is conducted with the co-opera tion and assistance of a committee of representative hotel men of San Fran cisco, Oakland and Berkeley.

The decline of the sardine packing Industry in Brittany will in time re duce the world's available beauty. A sardine factory Is not a particularly l>euatiful object, but a sardine boat cer tainly la. and to see the sardine fleet coming In the brave little port of Le Croiaic over the tumbling waters of the bay was a sheer delight. Hardly less beautiful are the bouts In port when the fine sardine nets, of an al most ethereal blue, flutter from the masts to dry.

Origin of a Mark Twain Story. Of all tbe witty things ankl or writ ten by Mark Twain no phrase baa been quoted oftener than bis reply to an alarmist report. "Rumor of my death greatly exaggerated.” Tbe history of this now celebrated bon mot will doubtless be of interest. Mark Twain was on a visit to London some year* ago and bad been secured as tbe chief guest at a dinner to be given by a lit erary club. On the morning of the day when tbe dinner waa to take place the secretary waa shocked to hear a rumor that Mark Twain bad died suddenly At bla wits’ eud. be sought to verify II by a diplomatic note to Mrs. Clem cns.

This Gigantic Volcano ia • Worthy Ri val to Vesuvius. The lofty volcanoes of tbe Hawaiian Islands, rising above tbe ocean from 5.000 to nearly 14.000 feet, are only the summits of gigantic mountain masses that rise abruptly from the Iwttom of the Pacific. Manna Lou. on tie island of Hawaii, stands 13.075 feet above sou level, but Its slopes descend be neath the sea. as shown by deep sea aoundings. with a grade fully equal to if not greater thun that of the visible HlopeH. The same Is generally true of the submarine slopes of other Islands, and the depths attained by these con tinuous slopes, within thirty to fifty miles of the shores, vary from 14.000 to 19.000 feet. Mauna Lon und Mauna Kea. if their true bases ure considered to be nt the bottom of the Pacific, ure therefore mountains of as great an alti tude ns Mouut Everest or approxi mately 30.000 feet In general the Hawaiian Island group consists of summits of a gigantic submarine mountain chain which projects only its loftier peaks and domes above the water. On the island of Hawaii the volcanic forces are still in operation. The one continuously active voleauie vent of the island is Kiluuea. far down on the eastern Hank of Mauna Loa— “the great mountain.” No other vol cano in the world approaches Mauna Ixm in the vastness of its mass or in the magnitude of its eruptive activity. There ure many volcanic peaks higher in the air. but most of them are plant ed upon elevated platforms, where they appear ns mere cones of greater or less size. It is not yet known ut what level the base of Mauna Ix>a is situated, but it is below the sea. probably far below. Mauna Kea—“the white mountain’’ —is also a colossus among volcanoes. Its summit. 13.825 feet, is a trifle high er than that of Mauna Loa, but its slopes are steeper, and Its base is there fore much smaller. The magnitude of Mauna Loa Is due chiefly to the great area of its base, which is nearly ellip tical in shape, with a innjor diameter of seventy-four miles and a minor di ameter of fifty-three miles, measured at sea level. In the aggregate of its eruptions Mauna Loa is also unrivaled. Home of the volcanoes*Jof Iceland have been known to disgorge at a single outbreak masses of lava fully equul to those of Mauna Loa. But such outbursts are infrequent in Iceland, and a century has elapsed since any of such magni tude have occurred, though there have been several minor eruptions. The eruptions of Mauua Lon are all of great volume and occur irregularly, at an average interval of about eight years. In view of the total quantity of material It has disgorged during the last century no other volcano is at all comparable to it.—From a Bulletin of the United States Geological Survey. Casting Metals. As is well known, some metals are unsuitable for casting, while others, like iron, can readily be cast in any desired shape. The property of cast ing well Is said to de|>end upon wheth er the metal contracts or expands on solidifying from the liquid form. Iron, like water, expands in solidifying, and hence the solid metal may be seen floating in the liquid Iron about It The expansion causes it to fill the die into which it is poured, and so it can be cast easily. Gold and silver con tract in cooling and therefore are not suitable for casting.—Exchange. “Valley of Dried Bones." The island of Jamuica possesses a "valley of dried bones.” It is near the Cuuacuna gap. in the Maroon county. This valley, though in the heart of the "wet country.” is bare of leaf and life. The limestone rock is hot. Giant trees, which seem to have been blighted sud denly. stand up gaunt und dead. Al though vegetation seems to bare been dense here in former years, nothing will grow now. During the hot season the temperatnre Is almost unbearable. It Is visited by seismic disturbances, wbicb cause the dead trees aud hot stones to rattle like dry bones. Old Pension Plan. They had a roundabout way of be stowing military pensions in the old days. Witness this official communica tion from the war office in the reign of Queen Anne. Her majesty. It runs, has been pleased to grant Fitton Mins hull, a child, a commission as ensign in consequence of tbe loss of his fa ther. who died in the service.

Paradoxical Proposition. “Do you use the word politics ns sin gular or plural?’ asked the person who is always wanting to know something. "That has always puzzled me.” re plied Senator Sorghum. “There is nothing more singular than some of the pluralities that politics develops.” —Washington Star. The Wrong Place.
