A curious episode showing the state
of tho present Czar's nerves occurred
when he and tho Czarina paid a visit
to Queen Victoria at Balmoral In 1806.
It had been arranged that when the
Imperial train arrived at Ballater sta
tion some rockets would bo sent up
to announce to tho queen their safe
arrival and also as a sort of welcome
to tho Czar himself. Unfortunately,
no one had prepared the Czar and, as
ho took his Beat in the carriage he
was startled by the sudden roar and
crash as tho fireworks raced aloft and
burst forth with a flash.
Tho Czar sank back In his carrlago

On the night of October 7, 1841, a
crowd of mutlnouB officers swarmed up
with the Intention of kidnaping tho
child queen Isabella. Shots rang out
and thero was a murderous hand-to-hand
combat on the staircase.
Poor little Isabella, all her real dig

an agony of fear, screaming, "Oh, don't

Cob Meal Industry Not Especially
Well Known to the Public.
"Have you ever bought any cob
meal?" Inquires a writer ln Popular
Mechanics, and adds: "If so, you did
it unintentionally. Cob meal Is made
by grinding corn cobs, nnd tho Indus
tcy Is ono shrouded ln great mystery,
Not that thero Is any secret of par
ticular valuo In the process of grind
ing, but tho ultimate purpose of thp
corn cob meal Is not such as to mako
publicity desirable. Thousands of dol
lars have been spent In perfecting tho
grinding machinery, and tho process
Is now reduced to a practical science.
"It Is apparently reassuring to learn
that 'It Is necessary, of courso, to havo
the cobs clean of husks, stones and
pieces of chain, brick, etc.'; but In
vestigation develops tho fact that thb
precaution is taken not on account
of tho meal, but to safeguard the
grinding machinery. Even so Ignoble
a thing as a corn cob grinder rebels
at being fed on pieces of Btone, chair
and brick, and tho machines are rathe?
"Whore tho cob meal goes finds a
ready explanation In tho fact that It
can bo mado at a cost of $G to $7 per
ton, whllo ground feed brings $25 to
?28 per ton.
"To such an extent has this class of
deception developed that sovoral Statoa
have already Imposed eovoro penalties
on tho uso of cob meal as adulteration.
Inasmuch as tho nutrition In cob moal
la on a par with pine sawdust, it would
seem a proper subject for national
puro food legislation; Tho leading
milling Journals Insist that tho millers
of Wheat flour seldom are offenders,
and that cob grinding Is chiefly done
by manufacturers of mlxod and com
pound feeds, especially thooo composed
largely of molasses.

tible man whoso automobile Is pur
