The manufacture of the Ordinary steel Safe a so improved that it 1� next to impossible to open them in the limited time that n burglar would have to work on them. There Are kit of burglar tool in police museums no doubt but they Are like a lot of the counterfeit Money which 1� captured every now and then made for exhibition purposes a the Money 1 Mauu factored expressly to be dictum a. I have seen kits of burglars tool that Cost More Money to manufacture than do any surgeon s outfit. The finest kind of workmanship was necessary to turn Thorn out. But that was thirty or forty years ago when a person rarely picked up a newspaper that did not contain an account of a Bank Burg Lary somewhere. There Are robberies heard of these Days but they Are in Side Job and Are done by sneak Aud others during the Daylight hour. To often a modern Bank Safe it would require a Force of half a dozen men and pro Wibly six to ten hours of work. Tin uie tals used in it Are As hard As the tools used for drilling Aud some of the inside casting Metal about the locks where drilling would most Likely be done.

B. Lewi s. Leaning against the barn Yard Fence wan a to Jarnier with Gray hair and wrinkled face and the look and posture of a Tau whore years had been spent in hard work. To i left was hitched a horse a Coal Black Horre with a mar in his forehead. Of the Kitchen door step three Hundred feet away sat a woman of fifty a Gray haired woman a woman with a wrinkled face a woman w to had been wife to the Man Over Liere for thirty years. Nhe had her hand under her apron and she did not raise it to wipe the tear from Eye. By and by there was a Cloud of dust Down the Road and five minutes later a brisk looking Man drove up and halted and called out a a Well. Uncle Joe. You be concluded to Aell have Ron the old Farmer choked up and motioned toward the horse and it was half a minute before he could May a a a it a most a bad a the Day we bid Nam Good Bye. But in be got to Aell. Take him along am Lee Quick about it a two Hundred Dallara a a said the Man. A he counted out the Green Back a and ill tie him let hand the buggy. Sorry you to Are forced to sell. Tuc a Joe. But let be Tell you he just the finest horse this county will Ever Send Down to the cavalry. You re owned my since he a foaled and i know How hard a Uncle Joe reached for the Money Ami turned away toward the House. I lip quivered a in sauntered along and he had to shut i Teeth hard to keep the fears Buck. He passed the Straw stack at which the calve were nibbling the Hay rack dumped against the Fence week before the open shed under which he housed the plow and drags. He did not look up. Even when he opened the Gate and struck the path leading to the Kitchen door i Eye were on the ground. He stepped aside to glance into the Pigpen Topi Mil for a moment in from of the smoke House and he had choked Down i emotion when he reached the door step and the woman waiting for him. Nhe had her face in her apron. He sat Down Les de her. Tossed the Money into her Lap. And after a while he said a a there a the interest on the mortgage Ami the taxes coming due. And i had to do it. Martha had to do a it was names Colt sobbed the wife. Quot be but i had to sell a had to sell. Lets make the lest of it. They be bought him for the cavalry and would t it lie funny if 011 r Sam should come to get him Way Down at the front. Sam would know him on sight and if he jest whistled once. A Harry would jump Fence to find him. Pay. Nit. Done to take on about it. Lets Chirk up and Belleve a ail for the the woman Rose up and entered the House without a reply and the Man presently Goi up looked a i out him in an absent Way. Aud then took a Corn Cutter from its Nail in the Wood shed and went out to the Grindstone under the Bartlett Pear tree to Sharpen it for the Day work in the Corn Field. Half an hour later when the implement had been edged to i satisfaction. He looked into the Kitchen to say to the woman who was wearily washing the last of the breakfast dishes a say. Martha. Ill write to Sam to night to keep an Eye out for a Harry a and i should t a bit wonder if they run Croaa each other Down there. Pam would feel most a tickled a if head seen one of two weeks later a drove of 300 horses were turned in at the remount Camp at pleasant Valley. There were 500 dismounted to roosters there wafting for them. Sheridan was pushing Early up the Shenandoah and there was no time to it Ort the Bays and Black Aud Gray and assign them to companies. So Many horse Aud so Many Bucu. And on the Morrow they Tnuett he off to overtake ouster and fall into the rank. A by the living Jingo Quot shunted a trooper As a horse a Trot let out of the incl arc and the Nal ter passed info his hand. A say now. You Fellers say say or a what the mischief is the matter with you. Sam Johnson Quot shouted the sergeant in charge of the remounting. A a Why 111 be tet Lauy busted if tote ainu tha cry my own Jet coir straight from the old farm its him. A sure you re Horn hey i Larry 1m.v Don t Rou know me and a the Horre stood with outstretched baiter ear cocked up and syes Lancing wildly about the troop or uttered a Peculiar whistle. The animal walked straight up to him Ami Ruble de i soft nose against rhe Sun burned Cheek and whimpered Aud stored and showed id Delight. In was a lie strangest kind of Luck. The father had said he would write to 111 of Glicr Hoy that he bad Ite Eti obliged to sell Harry but he had not done so. His heart was too sore Over the parting. Santos Joy was great. It was like coming across a brother. His own hands had first bridled and saddled him had first broken Linin to harness. Every infantryman Lia ids chum. Every trooper two of them Bis horse and a comrades his horse first. The father had pleadingly said to the Mother hoping to lighten her sorrow a hat Pam and Harry might find each other Down at the front Ami Chance lad brought it about. A Hundred curious men crowded a round the Black ind looked him Over and growled Athance. He was a game horse they �aid�?1 with Eye blazing and foam flying and ills heart set on Victory. Lifting their feet and working shelf ears her rouser. There is the Bugle walk Trot Gallop charge they sweep up the Hill in a solid mass every Tro ofter cheering every Sabre glinting and glistening in the sunlight. I beyond the Orest of the Hill Down it j across the Meadow Over the Cotton Field and then they strike the foe. It is a crash As if a thousand feet of j Stone Wall had Len toppled Down. There a re cheers shout. Hot and the Tasy of steel j the Black Horre and his ruler were i in the front rank. With tie bit in his Teeth and his cars Laid Back the Black horse dashed at the foe. And with a Bre whirling about his head rhe rider cheered Ami exulted. Tim thousand break through and scatter the foe but when they draw off there Are Only 1 seven Hundred to ride a was. Down j there on two acres of Field the dead and wounded almost touch each other. And a the suit goes Down and night wine it the groans and Wall of the wounded Are a sound to make one shiver. An hour goes by two j three hour. Then one of the wound ted men one who a been lying a if i dead struggles up and braces his Back against a dead Man. He Pant and groans with the exertion and presently he purses up his dry lips and Send Forth a signal Call. It is a shrill quavering whistle and Many another wounded Man listen and wonder. Oace to feel to Terete. And then the signal is answered. From where he is lying forty Nal away slowly bleeding to death from a gaping wound the Black horse gathers his feet under him Aud utter a shrill neigh. Ago in the whistle and now the stricken animal picks i Way among the dead and wounded moving at Snail s Pace and groaning a lie moves and by and by he halt and sinks Down in i track and thrust his in Tizik against the breast of the Man who called him. A it Yon Harry whisper the Man a he put out his hand. A i knew you were hit but i hoped you had not left me. Jot your death of Well same Here. But was t it a glorious charge though How we thundered Down How we crashed into Mem. How we slashed right and left am drove them Ite fore us men had to die Harry men and horse. Back there at the old Home there la be weeping and grieving but they la be proud a a know we died with our face to the a dear old Harryt said the trooper a he stroked rhe soft muzzle with his stiffening Finger. A Eye men and Horn had to die. And Why not we a Well a others a but How Strong you Wen under me a we swept tip the Hill it a your first Battle your first Aud your last but you had a heart of Oak. And we struck the enemy fir to of All our regiment. How strange and queer that you came Down to me poor old dad poor old Mam if must have wrenched their hearts to part with you Are you Here. Harry Are you talking to me poor old Chap that a a terrible Volley they gave a. But that a the Way for a a Soldier to die. Dead Are you. Harry dead with your head on my knee Quot again the woman sat on the Kitchen Doorstep with her baud under her apron. She leaned her head on the door casing Aud her eyes were fixed on a Man coming slowly Aero the barnyard. He had been to town and he had a letter in i hand. He did not wave it and shout. He looked this Way and that any Way but toward the . Of he grew White As death a he came nearer but she neither moved nor spoke. At last he sat it Lown he Ide her with a groan. He still held the letter in Bis hand and she saw that it had Leen opened. She heard him. Brea thing like one who strangles in i sleep and he could hear the furious beating of her heart. By and by he huskily said a a a it a from one of the Reynolds Hoys j cod help us mat a your Sam is dead Quot she whispered i Between her White lip. A by a yes a but Harry found Hiru a before he died just As i told you he s a and they died together Quot a died together a. Died together Quot he answered a he reached out and took one of her hand Ami sobbed in i Constitution. A recent egyptian discovery. It a hitherto been sup Poread that in Egypt the practice of embalming the 1 bodies of the dead and forming them into mummies a the most ancient method of be culture but prof. Flinders Petite the Well known Egypt Logist. Has. By recent excavations thrown quite a new Light upon this question of the ancient method of Dis posing of the dead. At pesh Asheh. A place Altott fifty Miles South of Cairo he a discovered a series of Tomb j in the coffin of which he Lias found Complete skeletons from which the flesh a been carefully dissected evidently previous to burial. The coffin arc of admirable workmanship Are made of Sycamore and Are in perfect preservation. Notwithstanding their five thousand year s burial in the Sand. It remains to Lee proved by further excavation whether the mutilation of the bodies was performed As a ceremonial rite or whether this removal of flesh from the Bones Point to cannibalism on. The part of the ancient s journal. The tale of a Castaway. Adventures of a shipwrecked Crew on a rat infested Island. Remained for several Maya in the Gas tron Krstina tube of a child Aud he has shown that the digestive juices act on the smaller part of the foreign body a to cause the Edge and Theja Point to disappear and that the Brilliant metallic surface was replaced by a Brownish tint. This demonstration will explain the methods used in Italy to make a antique medal Guppy de to Date from the most ancient times.

Astronomer panted to know w Hether it is a living or dead world. The most Beautiful planet and the one that comes nearest to the Earth and most the Earth lit six is at the same time the most mystery that on june 4 Captain Shaw Aud ills men were forced to abandon it at sea. They took to the lifeboats Aud. Several Days later landed on one of the tristan d act Ilia Isle. The id. of the let a men on the faraway Island Arol it de scribed by Captain Shaw. After telling of the of the bark and the Landing on the Island of tristan d Rachuna. He writes a the first ship that approached the Island and was hoarded by us was the american vessel h. Carlton on sep the inter 16, from new York to Hong Kong. I wanted the Captain to take a us to the a night a of Good hofe. But he could not. Our so cond mate however went of the Carlton. Three Day afterwards we sighted a sail from the Highland at the foot of a Mountain. That afternoon eight men and myself left in a Small boat and got to her. Sailing and rowing about 10 p. She proved to be the four masted hark Strath Rype of Greenock. From new York for Melbourne. They also could a not take us but the Captain gave us seventy Pound of bread fifty pounds of four. Fourteen Pound of a Offee and some tobacco. This a the for to substantial food and tobacco we Gor since we reached the Island. As the ito Pulu ton of the Piare with our eleven. Tia a been increased to eighty three the supplies did not last Long. �?o1 never thought that there were Whitejr eople of poor a the seventy two who made tristan do Aei Suliin their j Home. The natives have House built of Stone and these Are thatched with a gras Alied tussock. The House Are Only one Story High and the Peop Cook eat and sleep in a single apartment. Along the inside Walls of some of these apartment Are tranks like those of ships. A the native make trip in their lit tie boats to inaccessible Island twee j to Miles Distant in a southwesterly direction for tussock to be used in thatching. The islands Are overrun with rats which get scant food excepting when the natives try to raise a Little Grain. Then they dig up the seed almost a soon As planted. Tie people grow very Little of anything j but once in a while they succeed in j raising a few potatoes. There Are a 1 slaughtering 3.090 sheep daily with a peacocks to Swallow coarsely Motiu j proportionate no Mew of cattle. One of the Cudd storage rooms hold 60,000 Frozen carcasses of Mutton at one time. These Are transported to Europe in refrigerator r Tea Mera. Al thou Gli there is a voyage of 7,000 Malee across the Equator the original Cost of each sheep is of Small that the Price of the meat in Europe la not greater than of that brought from the United state and Canada la 1807, 2.300.000 Frozen sheep were exported front the Argentine if to i hew lie added How sent from Australia and America it w ill be seen How dependent is Europe upon foreign meat product. This business was begun Only in 1883. When 11.000 Frozen sheep were sent from Tbs Argentine. It is estimated that that Republic now a a total of 105.000.000 sheep twice the number of the United state. This great flock by no Means represents the future capacity of the country for 391.000 Square Miles or a territory ten times die size of the state of new York. 1 available for sheep pasturage. As yet it May be said to 1� deserted compared with the number of animals that it will sup port in the future. It trill be of supplying the civilized world with All the Mutton its inhabitants can confine. Before the establishment of refrigerating plants in and the Export Oue that is to say. Is it in a rendition to support inhabitants and i it Proba 1 do that such inhabitant Are Liere or on the Oiler hand. Is it us Aoi ted for their presence and Barren these question astronomers at present Are unable to answer Buttlieri efforts to answer them and the observations that they have made of the mysterious planet possess an almost startling interest. First let a briefly recall what Venus is. 1� is a Gloia like our Earth and of nearly the same magnitude hav j Tion of Mutton from the Argentine ing a diameter of a bout 7700 Miles while that of the Earth i a Little More than 7m Miles. So nearly of the same size Are the two planets that if we could View them from an equal distance we should is Tumble without the a it of i not Ruinen to of measure t intent to detect any difference Between them. The substance of Venus 1� slightly lighter bulk for bulk than that which compose the Earth hut j the difference in this respect is so lit j tie that again it would require special examination to distinguish by weight Between a cubic foot of the soil of Venus and an equal amount of the soil j of the Earth. It follows that on Venus the Force of gravitation or the weight of bodies Doe not greatly differ from that Ora the Earth. If we could Stew upon Venus we should find that we had parted with a few pounds weight hut the difference would not be very noticeable except perhaps on the race track. Rut this planet so like the Earth in Many resin act. Is very different from our Globe in its situation. Tie Earth a distance from the Sun is ft3.tkj0.0h0 i Miles the distance of Venn from the 1 Sun is 17.000,000 Miles. This differ j becomes a matter of great i in por Tance when we consider the effects j which tie Sun produces upon the two a planets. Heat and Light As every j body know vary inversely As the \ Square of the distance. When we rein j the Square of the Earth s distance from the in with the Square of vegt Nus a distance. We find that the former is Al out double the latter. This Means a that Venus on the average gets twice As much heat and Light from the Sun As the Earth gets. Row in Elf ind Pear Liws.
