By some means he secured possession of the entire correspondence with the Roman girl and turned the let- ters over to the Queen. Christina must have had a bad hour when she read those letters, in which her love and trust were ridiculed. On Saturday. November 10, the Marquis was summoned to the Galerie des Cerfs, a long arid gloomy apartment of the pal- ace. He entered, bowing and smiling in his'accustomed manner. The Queen was there with Father le Bel and three armed strangers. Christina's face was as cold and rigid as marble. As the Marquis ad- vanced, smirking, her glance brought ter- ror to his heart, although he had no ink- ling of what was in store. Turning to Father le Bel, she said: "Hand me those papers." He produced the letters, which had been intrusted to him by the Queen. She in OUB HIGHEST MOUNTAIN. [Geological Survey Bulletin.] The highest mountain In Oregon is Mt. Hood, feet above sea level. Com- pared with Mt Wtoitftey, to the south in California, antf Mt Rainier, to the north in Washington, each rising well above feet, Mt. Hood does not appear aa a skyscraper. However, according to the geologists of the United Geological Survey and other authorities, Oregon had at one time, probably the dawn of life upon -the earth, a great volcano which towered as far above Mt. Hood aa does Mt. Rainier, possibly even several thousand feet higher. This was the great Mt. Marama. But thousands of years ago this mountain .disappeared into the bowels of the earth and- all that is left to-daji is 'the huge rim around Crater Lake. Crater Lake is the caldera of this ex- tinct and collapsed volcano and-Is neda-ly six miles in diameter. The inside walls of the rim of the ancient mountain are In places nearly feet high and al- most perpendicular. The lake itself is in places feet deep and parts of the wall rise above its waters another feet. A restoration of the mountain in fancy, using as a basis the angles of the lower slopes, which still remain, shows that the apex could not 'have been far from feet in height, so that Mt. Mazama was one of moat lofty and majestic peaks in the United'States.

[Popular Mechanics.] The Ponca Indians of California store their grain in huge baskets elevated on rude platforms reached by ladders.

The Institute of Arts and Sciences of Brooklyn recently purchased this basket, which is large' enough to shelter a. whole Indian family. It Is six feet from bottom'to rim, the top of cone-shaped cover being nine feet from the bottom. It weighs 325 pounds, notwithstanding that it Is made of light osiers.

Recent wars have also shown that wholesale carnage is most undesirable as regards the disposal of the dead. In a stienuous campaign there is little time to bpara to inter those who have fallen, and the victorious side often has many bodies of the enemy to dispose or. Cemeteries cannot be placed anywhere, as they must be well ;clear of towns or livers, from a sanitary point of view. In the Russo-Japanese War the Jap- anese were so handicapped by their own dead and those of the Russians left be- hind that eventually they employed ve- hicles fitted up as crematoriums which traveled about with the army. By this means the serious problem of disposing of corpses was to a. large extent solved by cremating them. This- tendency to disable rather than to kill is to be found In several directions. The shell which most people consider a weapon of terrific death-dealing proper- ties- really wounds more often than kills. This type of shot in tne first place meant to demolish fortifications, en- trenchments- and houses., It certainly may kill while carrying out this' mission, but more often its flying pieces cause flesh Wounds, serious but not fatal. In the same way airship ibombs and shells, though at first sight serious, death-dealing factors, will prove useful more for wrecking property than taking human life. To start with, aerial craft engaged In dropping bombs win-have to stay at a high altitude to elude the sharp-shooters on earth. Thus a falling bomb from a great height will not be difficult to avoid.' fall will be eauged with more or less accuracy, certainly! with sufficient cor- rectness to enable.those underneath to run clear of the spot it is falling toward.

SPARROWS TO EAT. tSan Francisco Call.] The University of California has -de- clared war on the English sparrow, wihlch infests its grounds, so it. is an- nounced from Berkeley, ,and will de- stroy the eggs antf the young and trap all the old ones it can eaten. Neither bird lover, ornithologist, nor agricultural scientists have a good word to-say for this pirate among birds, who seems to have no beneficial use except when he Is eaten. So much of pest has the English sparrow become in all parta of the coun- try that some time ago the Federal De- partment of Agriculture put out a bulle- tin urging its destruction, telling how to it, and incidentally how to cook it Iki a few cities. the au- thorized use of a shotgun within the city1 limits la to kill the English sparrow when they cannot otherwise be reached. On the grounds of cleanliness alone the English sparrow ought to be exter- minated, lij cities because it is of-filthy 'habits and every place where it nests. The Department of Agriculture maln- tains that the English sparrow is not only edible, but that it la a fat, juicy and savory morsel, and if tetter known, would be sought out toy every one who likes birds. It will be a good thing to put this to the test. There Is no law or regulation against killing English sparrows. Any boy whj> can make ordinary bird traps can help supply the family with delicate fresh meat by trapping the feathered nuisance, and having them fried or baked and see if the Department of Agriculture iavnot right-' SAVING IN COST AND SPACE WILL CAUSE LABGE BEFBACTOB TO GIVE WAY TO THE BEFLECTOB.

The Marquis was extraordinarily handsome gifted in all" the graces and polite mannerisms of the time. He was a charming mail, but unscrupulous. When duty took him away from his royal mistress they wrote love letters, just as ordinary people, do, and the let- ters of the Marquis always breathed un- dyirig devotion.

With this weapon It will be possi- ble to discharge a bullet with very high velocity and penetrating power. Ninety-nine people out of a hundred will jump to the conclusion that this weapon has been designed in order to In- crease the wholesale slaughter and car- nage that Is generally supposed to be the inevitable outcome of modern warfare. As a matter of fact, this is quite a mis- taken idea. Modern weapons of war are rapidly de- veloping into very humane instruments as compared with those of a few years ago. This tendency If not due to any hu- manitarian reasons, but solely because It is not policy to create wholesale slaugh- ter in present-day warfare. Experts have discovered that to wound A number of wounded soldiers entails responsibility jon the side that they rep- resent, which is a severe handicap in a strenuous war campaign. Ambulance corps and field hospitals have to be main- tained, and In big campaigns where casu- alties are large-the burden of taking care of the wounded is no small matter. That is one great reason why modern weapons tend to put a man temporarily out of action and not to kill him. The terrific speed of a bullet discharged from the modern high-power rifle sends it, in nine cases out of ten, right through a man. It puts him out, but seldom kills him. The wounds made by high-speed bul- lets, though heal very rapidly. WJiat is more, the modern bullet seldom poisons a wound, as was the case with the old type of shot Owing to the heat developed by the high-power used in the discharge the A PRISON OF SILENCE. [Baltimore Son.] Entombed in a grim, castle on the out- skirts of Lisbon are some of the most miserable men on earth. These are in- mates of Portugal's "prison of silence." In this building everything that human Ingenuity can suggest to render the lives of its prisoners a horrible, maddening torture is done. The corridors, piled tier on tier five stories high, extend from a common center like the spokes of a huge wheel. The cells are narrow, tomb-like and within'each stands a coffin. 'The attend- ants creep about In felt slippers. No one is allowed to utter a word. The si- lence is that of the grave. Once a day the cell doors are unlocked and the 600 wretches, march out, clothed in shrouds and with faces covered by masks, for It is part of this hideous punishment that none may- look upon the countenances of his fellow prisoners. Few of 'them endure this torture for more than 10 years. [Scientific T MAT not be out of place to recall the essentfal difference between refractor and refledtor. The former is the one usually called to mind when we think of a telescope. It has a lens at the upper end of a tub.e through which the light passes. At the lower end la the eye- piece through which we On the other hand the reflector has no lens, but a large concave mirror which takes the place of the lens. mirror IE placed at the lower end of the tube, the latter being open at the upper end. The light passed down through the tube to the mir- ror, is reflected, back to the upper end and brought to a focus where the eye- piece or photographic plate is placed. One of the principal points in favor of reflector is the saving In cost The Clarks received for the 36-inch lens of the Lick OTwervatory, and a mounting similar to that would cost aboiit an equal amount Thus this large re- fractor may be considered to represent an investment of approximately 000. Now compare this cosrt with that of a reflector of the same Aperture. It is pos- sible to 'obtain A. three-foot mirror for a'bout A suftable mounting can be had for about lor even leas If a very simple design la chosen, A well- equipped reflector Would therefore cost in the neighborhood of or ap- proximately one-fifth that of a refractor of the same size. For telescopes of this aperature, which must be permanently mounted and prop- erly protected from the weather, an addi- tional item must be considered, namely, the cost of building and dome. The re- flector can be made much shorter than the refractor, so that a dome with a di- ameter of 40 feet is ample for a three-loot instrument of this type, while the Great Uek refractor requires a dome having a diameter of 75 feet. Since the coat of domes varied approximately as the cube of the diameter, the dome wwtriaT' coat over six times as much aa a similar an instrument of the other type. It may therefore be said that, in gen- eral, the properly housed refractor of large size at least flve, and possibly six, times as much as a reflector of the same aperture. For smaller in- Amerloan.] atruments the ratio may be even hlgner. There is another point, however, which must be considered under the heading of Telescopes are ever increas- ing in size. In order to have a lens or mirror perform well It must be sup- ported in such a way that the flexure due to its own weight does not injurious- ly deform the optical surface. A lens, must be supported from the edge. There comes a time when an Increase in size will add sufficient extra weight to pro- duce appreciable deformation and there- by Injure' the performance of the tele- scope. Certain tests made with the for- ty-inch lens of the Observatory lead to the conclusion that it would not be advisable to make a refractor of a size unless a new way of support- ing great lenses is found. With a mir- however, it is possible to have the glass of sufficient thickness to be fairly rigid and then have a system of supports so designed as to support the entire back of the mirror ani thus completely prevent flexure. Furthermore, the larger a lens the thicker the glass. This means increased loss of light due to absorption. That this is really a serious matter will be realized when ir is known that tht great Lick and Verkes lenses transmit only about. 50 per cent of the photographic rays falling on them. Thia loss is due primarily to absorption. Doubling tSie alze of such a lens would about double its thickness and it would therefore trans- mit only about 25 per cent of the actinic rays. This means that while the lens area has been increased four times the amount of light reaching the image would only be doubled. Now the silver film of a mirror in good condition reflects about 80 per cent of the photographic rays. Therefore by doubling the aper- ture of a mirror, the light reflected la Increased in the same ratio as the area or four-fold. for large In- struments, the reflector iaNthe more effi- cient In its light-grasp.

From time immemorial has the animal been used as the butt for jokes In comic papers and there have been few who have shown a willingness to espouse the cause of this really useful but maligned member of the animal kingdom.
