Great Men’s Signatures Alike.
"From my pile of autographs 1 take
me of a statesman, well known, and
lay it side by side with the autographs
of a great author and a great ecclesi
astic,” writes a British publicist. “All
three are very small, exquisitely neat,
very little slanted, absolutely legible.
Well as I kDew the three writers, I
doubt if I could tell which wrote
which. They were Cardinal Manning,
Mr. Froude and Lord Rosebery. Will
the experts tell me if, in this case,
similarity of writing bodied forth sim
ilarity of gifts or qualities?”
Mining in England.
The value of the minerals mined
and quarried in the United Kingdom
last year was £95,870,723. The out
put of coal was the largest on record
—236,128,936 tons —but the value was
only £82,038,553, as against £83,851,-
784 in 1904, when the output was 3,-
500,000 tons less. The total quantity
of coal, coke and patent fuel exported
was 67,160,045 tons. There was an
increase of 816,421 tons in the iron
ore output.
Lost in a 100.000-Acre Pasture.
Tom Johnson, the 14-year-old son of
John Johnson, who lives near Gates
valley, Atascosa county, went out
hunting one day recently and lost his
way in a 100,000-acre pasture. He
wandered around in the pasture for
three days before a searching party
found him. He was without food and
water during all that time. He was
35 miles from home when found. —Ex-
Notes Always Pure White.
The Bank of England refuses to use
color for its notes on account of the
fact that the authorities believe that
its whiteness and apparent simplicity
are the greatest safeguards against
forgery. The whiteness of a Bank of
England note is different to that of
any other paper, and is obtained by
using only the very finest linen rags
in the making.
Fashion in Brides.
The natives of the Sandwich islands
estimate women by their weight. The
Chinese require them to have de
formed feet and black teeth. A girl
must be tattooed sky-blue and wear a
nose ring to satisfy a South Sea
islander. Certain African princes re
quire their brides to have their teeth
filed into the semblance of a saw.
Long Sleep Brought Death.
There is a record in medical works
of a man near Rochester, N. Y., who
slept five years, neVer waking more
than 16 hours at a time, and that only
at intervals of six weeks or more.
When seized by the trance he weighed
160 pounds, and he dwindled to 90
pounds No treatment availed; he
Cut Out of a Sphere.
In the production of common watch
glasses the glass is blown into a
sphere about 40 inches in diameter,
sufficient material being taken to give
the desired thickness. Discs are then
cut. out from this sphere with the aid
of a pair of compasses having a dia
mond at the extremity of one leg.
Danger in Giving Up Business.
The man who wishes to live out his
allotted span of life, with ten or 20
years to spare, should never retire
front business. That is the opinion
of Dr. Scofield, an eminent physician
of London. He says there is a great
danger in any sudden change of an
vironment after a certain age.
High Time.
Mother (to daughter whose father
goes around the corner every time she
opens the piano)—Emily, you must
stop practicing. Your father’s nose al
ready shows signs of it. —Translated

Train on Northern Pacific Wrecked
While Standing on Bridge.
That trains may be wrecked even
when standing still was proven by an
accident on the Northern Pacific. Be
tween Wallace and Saltese a trestle
was built on a reverse curve. It was
about 300 feet long and reached a
height of about 80 feet. The night be
fore the accident a train consisting of
a snow plough, two engines and two
passenger cars, a caboose and a push
ing engine had been battling with the
drifts between Wallace and Dorsey,
making slow progress. At 4 a. m. the
“S” bridge was reached, and, the en
gine and train crews being exhausted,
it was decided to stop until daybreak.
All sections of the train were then
coupled, and the crews retired to the
caboose, with the train still standing
on the bridge.
About 7 a. m. a snowslide started up
on the mountain, and, gathering force
in its progress, swept down and over
the waiting train. The trestle of the
bridge was swept away, and the ca
boose, containing eight men, dropped
80 feet into the deep snow. Only one
suffered any injury at all, and he got
out of it with a broken hip. There
were eight or nine passengers in the
coach, and one of these leaped from
the window and fell 70 feet. He ax
tricated himself and returned unaided
to the coach. The other passengers
did not receive even a shock.
