"It is trrmendoiisly rich in all sorts of natural resources and almost wholly undeveloped "It has an area of nearly half a million square miles, which means that It Is almost twice the size of Texas; yet It has less than one-twentieth of the railroad mileage of that state. "Bogota, the capital of Colombia, Is situated between ranges of the Andes on a plateau at an elevation of more than a mile and a half. It Is approxi mately 4iy) miles from the Caribbean sea along the most accessible route and L'OO miles frdtn the Pacific across the Andes. It has no rail connection with either sen. To reach It one must travel for more than IVK) miles up the I winding course of the Magdalena river j .by boat, skirting rapids by means or a short length of railroad, and finally cover the last 50 miles from the bi nd of navigation hy rail. The trip souie j$ines requires several weeks. "More than half of the area of Co lombia lies east of the three ranges of the Andes and consists of plains country sloping toward the center of the continent and drained by the head waters of the great Amazon andJ! Orinoco river systems. Covered wttfn succulent grasses, these plains form an unsurpassed stock-raising country. It Is largely unutilized and Is to be compared with the plains of Rhodesia, South Africa, as one of the richest unoccupied regions suitable for cattle raising remaining In the world, it is estimated that more than ten million - betid of cattle could be pastured on these 'llanos' of eastern Colombia.

Hlngston notes ' that when a spider's web has becotM worn out beyond further patching, the maker ents It. "I was at tlrst very much surprised to think Umt a spider's stomach could be so Capacious as to contain Uie com plete snare.'' says the captain. "In this, however, I was much mistaken; for I found that a large, complete snare, eleven Inches In diameter, was of such delicate substance and com pressible Into so small a bulk that, when rolled into a ball between the lingers, It formed a compact mass but Utile larger than an ordinary pln's hc,ad. A spidoY will often swallow en tire a tly f mueh grecsfer dimensions than its own cppjpacjt snare. 1 look on me circular snaie or tne tpeira ns almost as beauii'ul an example of mntheuiatlcal accu.-aey In the lift; of organic beings as the exquisite struc ture of Ihe hoiieycj- nb. "But how iota lr more wonderful does it all secin ula n .vo picture the web as a potential fabric, first woven into an Inimitable harmony to lure Co death thousands of living creature, then tat tered and torn In the tragedy, to be again received Into the maw of Its voracious host, to be repurlfied In the strange economy of a spider's struc ture, to emerge again from the spin Ding-wheel lo One, transparent fila ments, to be woven again Into the same lovely texture, and to repeat the siitne eternal drama that tills the mind with such enthusiasm and admiration." Softest Known Wood. Trees belonging to the genus .laenra tin, growing in tropical America, are renfnrkabla for tbeie sofr'wood.

BORROWING MADE A FINE ART The man has been a mystery In and I'll admit It. He dresses i rt.ee horse tout, he Is a inosi sisteut and mercurial liar, a eyes are set too close ! let he usually has money, he never to mi a meal, and he huh Its places frequented by highlj i I zed folk. "lie's a borrower," snld the h detective. "He can borrow $2 I the mall clerk here, aud that's a f uj legeruermaln. it' I let him inii me for 15 seconds he could horn money from me." A set of circumstances made it pos sible for me to put the borrower lu the press and squeeze some conversa tion out of him. I wanted to know how he did it. "Vou are too well dressed and too conspicuously dollied." I told him cruelly. "Your face is that of a door mat thief, and while you are an ex cellent, you aro likewise a diffuse and fort ei ful liar. Yet you manage to borrow enough money to keep on liv ing well. How do vou do U?" The iiorrower said his plan of action Is simple. He first finds some one who will let him talk without moving away. Then he stages himself as a rich and Influential business man. He rushes to conferences with financial mag nates or to take lunch with some ca taln of industry. He repeats two or thiea times. If the boob seems Im pressed he then pushes a prong (n for the largest sum the victim Will give up. "Always work fast," said he. "Spring the loan idea on htm so quick he hasn't time to think. Nine times out of ten you get it. Tbe sucker is ashamed to confess to a rich man that he has not plenty of money. He'd turn a p icvil down so cold he'd break in four places, but he wants to save his face with the topside man." After tlfiitt it was more difficult to sympathise with his clients. Kansas City Star. Cannltalistic Dog. Freddie bad been given a puppy which was very playful. He watched It with great concern as it ran about the room snapping at Itself and trying to catch Its tail. Finally be voiced tils anxiety by exclaiming, "Don't you eat your sef (self), doggie, we Just got you yesterday." Credit Where Credit Was Due.

In Eng land, the ordinary punishment for all felonies. Blarkstone refers to IfJO of fenses as punishable by death, some of them of a nature wbfth appears trivial. For Instance, a man who cut down a tree or impersonated a Green wicb pensioner generally paid the life penalty. Due to the exertions of Sir Samuel Romllly, this severe criminal le mve WAV towards the end 01 the relsjn of George III to mora hu mane conceptions.
