.ONELIEST SPOT ON EARTH.
rristan d'Acunha Is a Tiny Oasis In a
Wilderness of Water.
When Napoleon was sent to St Hel
ena it was thought that the loneliest
place on earth bad been assigned to
him as a prison. But St Helena is
1,400 miles nearer a continent than Is
Tristan d'Acunha. Many hundred of
of miles of ocean lie between this is
land and its nearest neighbor. Tristan.

wilderness of waters, go from it in

It is a rocky and cliff girt little isle,

Vet on this lonely speck of rock and
earth there lives a community seem
ingly happy In their isolation from all
the rest of the world. They are farm
ers, cattle raisers and shepherds. In
tbe valleys of the island are fertile
fields, where potatoes mainly are
grown. The food of the people consists
for the most part of beef, mutton,
fowls, potatoes and fish.
Tristan used formerly to produce
many fruits and vegetables which can
no longer be grown there. Tbe reason
of this is that the island for a long
time was overrun by rats which es
caped from a ship that anchored there
and which the people have been un
able, it is said, ever entirely to exter
minate. Harper's Weekly.
How Seeds Travel.
They have been discovering some ex
traordinary plants in England, plnnts
which puzzled the botanists, to whom
they were either utterly unknown or
known as growing only in far distuut
lands. One naturalist picked on the
grounds of the Bradford sewage works
1C0 species of foreign plants. Among
these were several Australian burrs,
Jimson weed, prickly poppies from
Mexico, others native to Peru, Siberia
and the Azores. All were of a prickly
nature. Investigation proved that the
dust from wool combing establishments
was being used as fertilizer and the
washings of wool were run into tbe
sewers. The burrs of these foreign
plants had come in the wool and had
grown. Other plants had sprung from
seed In rags and others been brought
in soil on foreign timber. New York

whose wealth bad previously flowed
by way of the Susquehanna river to
Baltimore and New York became the
seaport for the agricultural states bor

Until the Erie canal wa opened it
had cost $S8 a ton to transport wheat
from Buffalo to Albany. With this
new waterway the cost fell to some
thing more than $.". A string of cities,
several of which became large ones,
sprang up along Its 'course, all tribu

In McClure's Magazine.
At a place called Anghln. about for
ty miles south of Baugkok. a China
man and bis wife cultivated a small
sugar cane plantation. Tbe man had
been greatly annoyed by having his
cane eaten by his neighbors' buffalo
calves. Coming borne one evening just !
at dark, he sawwhat he thought was i
one of the marauders at work on the I
cane. Stealing silently up behind it ,
he struck It a mighty blow with a j
heavy club. Tbe animal dropped with i
out a sound. The Chinaman told bis I
wife what he had done and added.
"That calf will steal no more of my
cane." In the moruing he found that i
the "calf was a full grown tiger. He j
had killed it by breaking its neck. Just

Perhaps there is no more carious

This friend's name was Peterman,
nnd money he advanced was like a

One day when Peterman was at tbe
claim agency office he came upon this

That was the Inception of the fa

docks. In Liverpool. The claim agency
took the matter in hand, traced Peter

Why Bruises Become Black and Blue.
The color of blood Is due chiefly to
j Iron in the little blood cells. When
the iron is kept in these little blood
; cells, which are living and traveling
around In the blood vessels, the color
is red. Hit the skin hard enough to
break 50ine of the little blood vessels
beneath the surface and the little red
cells escape from the injured blood
vessels, wander about for awhile in
the tissues and die. When they die
the Iron that made them red before
then changes to black and blue color

by the glands called tbe lymphatics
and made over again into nice red cells.
The iron Is taken up very much more
quickly by the lymphatics if the black
