An Instrument which records the

"It was operated by the .Chinese

give the populace ample warning. The

"I do not think Fort de Prance Is

I do think she is In .lanr from a tidal
wave. In volcanic districts these ti

They are caused by a sudden upheaval
of the sea 'bottom. In case of suoh
upheaval Fort de France would surely
be wiped out.
"As a safety position from tidal
waves, Mome Rouge is finely situated
as It 4s built on a "high ridge. It ts
about the only town in the volcanic
district so situated."

A NOISELESS TYPEWRITER.
Scientists claim that the exercise
necessary to operate an ordinary type
writer to gefher with Its noise, tend
to 'injure the health and cause nervous
ness. A German inventor has there
fore perfected a machine which Is
operated by air pressure on the key
board, and dos away with the noise
and much of the labor. Its .uloption
may lw one way of preserving health
aTid preventing nervousness, but hre
is a butter and less expensive way,
and that is by using Hosteller's Stom
ach Bitters. All people of ';-dentary
occupation need this wonderful med
icine to aid digestion and to keep the
bowels regular. It will also cure dy
spepsia, biliousness. Insomnia and
nervousness. Dno't be rleeeived Into
taking something "Just as r;ood." There
is no medicine equal to he Bitters.
