ED THE MAIN General Bixby, chief of the army en gineers, who has had charge of the un watering of the Maine, recently ex pressed the opinion that the destruc tion of the battleship was caused by the explosion of her magazines. No external explosion, In his judgment, could have caused the conditions ob served in the remains of the vessel. But General I3ixby added that the pri mary cause of the explosion would likely never be known,, so the mys tery of the Maine, unlike the hull it self, may never be revealed. General Bixby said that unless the fragment of a torpedo could be found there is no way of connecting an outside agency with the blowing up of the vessel. The destruction to the vessel was such, says General Bixby, and the de terioration has been so great that it is impossible to tell whether the ship was blown up from a force within or was from the inside, indicating that Vhether this was from a sympathetic Dutside may forever remain a mystery. he American court of inquiry was right distinct explosions, the first of which 1.

Mr. Mar shall was general manager of the de partment store of Moses & Wainright. Therefore, Miss Cleo heard much shop talk. About the only thing that interested her, however, was the talk about shoplifters. The store was constantly troubled with them, and it was only at long intervals that one was caught, although a store detective was supposed to have her eyes every where. One night when the manager came home to say that goods worth $200 had been lifted that day from un der the nose of the store watchdog, who was a young woman of 25, and that she would be discharged at the end of the week, Miss Cleo announced, in a very serious tone: "I am a natural born detective." A laugh greeted the words. "I have solved several difficult cases." More laughing. "A year ago when this diamond ring was suddenly missing, father and moth er said it was a case that would never be solved. After devoting one day to thought I walked into the kitchen and told the cook she was the thief. She broke down at once." "That is, she confessed?" said Mr. Marshall. "No, she did not confess. She turn ed red and white and burst into tears, and within an hour she skipped out." "And the ring?' "I found it on the shelf over my lav atory. She, of course, had placed It there on finding that. she was sus pected. Father said the police could n't have worked the case better." "Keenest, brightest thing I ever heard of!" replied khe manager. "If t eat P1.ieUpOeAtrAohr PickeduUp Onve trAfte Another. wer onlyhad cases. tHerstore had cou stante ofabeek."eupt cra thing, however, and next day she pr< ceeded to carry her plan into execl tion. With no hint to her siste who would oppose it, she made It way to the store of Mnoses & Wal right. She wanted to get an eye o the afternoon shoppers. She had feeling that she could tell a shopli1f er on sight. The criminal might l> a well dressedl woman with diamond In her ears, and she might pretend t be at ease, but there would be a fu tive look, a something in look or wal to give her away. Miss Cleo passed from counter t counter, looking for guilty parties. Shi spotted and followed two or thre~ about, but they seemed to receive mysterious warning and kept hand off. There wvas one old dame whi might have pocketed three yardsc lace if she hadn't lookedl up an caught the girl's eye on her-. Mis Cleo finally retired from the stor with the feeling that if she had cause no arrest she had at least frightene a number of shoppers into being hor est. At dinner that evening, sh didn't feel so self-satisfied, howevel Mr. Marshall reported that never ha the shoplifters been so busy. Ther had been no less than seven case right under the noses of the br-ightes salesgirla. Should that report discout-age a nal ural born detective? Not in the slighi est. It should stimulate her to greal or exertions. That's what it didi Miss Cleo Gate's case. Sho had bee put on her mettle, and she woul astonish her brother-in-law and oti ers. Very few good looking youn women who have set out to astonfs folks have made a failure of it. was back to the store the next afte: noon 'for Miss Cleo. A bright t oughi struck her as she crossed the esl old. From all she had read ar the shoplifting business wa to he sex.

Then he walked up to the je elry show case and drummed on th glass. Then he went over to the pe fumery counter and asked the pric of a bottle of cologne. Thence b walked to the door and looked up an down, as if to see whether there was policeman about or not. Being sat. fled on this point, he walked back t the book counter, picked up one boo after another, and finally walked 0 with one in his hand as bold as bras It was a valuable hook. Miss Cleo should have stepped fo: ward at this moment and laid he heavy hand on the shoplifter an made an arrest but her heart falle her. -e would deny and resit Si would let him go and trail bl!ha an then report to her brother-in-law. Sh hadn't far to trail. With a quic glance up and down the street, th young man crossed. At the entranc to a stairway he paused a moment t look back, and then climbed the stair The girl had the criminal run to eartl She re-entered the store, was take up to the manager's office, and astoi ished him with announcing: "George, I have been doing dete< tive work downstairs unbeknown t you or Sarah, and I have caught shoplifter. He may be the head C the gang!" "You don't tell me! Where is lie? "I didn't want to create excitemen in the store, and so I trailed him t his lair." "Good girl! Where is it?" "Right across the road and uiI stairs. He can be arrested in fly nilnutes." "You'll have to come along an point him out." "Oh, I'll do that." At the store doors they picked u a detective. When the trio had crqs! ed the street and the stairway ha been pointed out, Mr. Marshall sal to the girl: "There are a dozen offices up ther and a studio or two, and we mustn bungle this case. Sure you can ider tify your man again?" "In an instant." "I can't believe that any of thes people are shoplifters. We'll look 11 on Paul first and ask him what h thinks. Right in here." T vio 'red a studio. At a des man 't-an opap.&u, before him. There were paintings easels and paintings on the walls. "Hello, George!" from the yot man to Mr. Marshall. "Hello, Paul." "That is the man and there is book!" exclaimed the natural born tective as she stood erect and poin an accusing finger. Ten seconds of intense silence, then they broke into laughter. "What--what does this mean?" manded Miss Cleo. "Mr. Paul Wainwright, this is wife's sister, Miss Cleo Gates, in to on a visit. Mr. Wainwright is son of his father, who is the Wi wright of our firm." d It took five long minutes to m: 'it clear that Mr. Paul WVainwright I borr'owed instead of shoplifted, t~ that there was not'iing coming to 11 o' in the wvay of punishment, and th< were apologies and "don't mentioni and somehow Mr. Paul got the k n that he must call on the young 1i and talk the case over, Hie is ec inlg yet. r, ______________ Something About Dreams, a Dreams are due to an increase a sensation and circulation over tl -which exists in profound sleep. e servations made uplon1 patients w~ acranial d erects show that when we e dreaming the brain is greater in r-ine than in deep sleep, and less ti2 k wvhen we are awake. Thus this 11nt mediate volume of blood would i1 o cate that dreams are an intermedi: e stage between unconsciousnessa e wakefulness, and their incomplete a irregular intelligence would indici a the same thuing.
