engine-room is on the first floor of the
industrial building, and in the same
room is the boiler for the steam 'heating

light plant. A nightwatchman is em

discovered by him before it had made
great headway. Without the aid of the
fire-fighting apparatus, which was cut
off by the fire, no attempt could be made
to fight the fire in the industrial build

the fire was prevented from spreading to

An interesting coin has just been sold
in Germany. It is one of the few coins
in the history of the world which can
be accused of having a humorous side
to it. In 1679 the Danes descended on
the port of Hamburg, but their attack
on the famous Hants town proved un
successful. The inhabitants of the town
struck a medal to commemorate the
occasion. The legend on the coin was
as follows : "The King of Denmark has
been to Hamburg. If thou wouldet
know what he achieved, look on the
other side." It is needless to add that
"the other aide" is a blank.

Naw Yobk, Dee. 17. A dispatch from
Rome to the Paris Temps, quoted bv the
correspondent of the New York Times
and London Times in the French capital,
describes an interview with the Pope, in
which His Holiness complained against
the false reports in regard to his health.
"You see," the Pope said, "that it is
not all over with me. I work six or
eight hours a day, and my work Is not
easy, for it embraces the whole church.
Please say that I am not yet dead."
