When dynamite explodes It leavca
little to mark tlio spot where It baa

ness. Two Interesting exhibits of Its

tuto of Technology at Iloboken, N. J.
They nro steel blocks, six Inches In
diameter and four Inches thick, show
ing respectively the Imprcaslon of nn
oak leaf and the Imprint of the head
line of a western newspaper. It was
during a test of high explosives thnt n
cnrtrldgo of dynamlto waa placed on
a nowapnper covering the block of
steel, tho object being to aco how much
dynamlto would be required to split
Tho dynamite was flrcd without In
jury to the steel, but to the surprise of
the experimenter the print of the
newspaper was deeply pressed Into the
metal. Hie experiment was repeated,
with the anme result and then w-is
elaborated by trying the charge on an
oak leaf placet! betwoen the block and
tho dynamite. This time tho stem and
tho ribs of the leaf were deeply Im
pressed In the metal.
"What happens Is this," said the rx
pert In charge. "Unlike most other ex
plosives, dynamite exerts practically
all Its crushing force downward nnd
not In a general direction. Bo Incon
ceivably quick and forceful Is tho dis
charge of this powder that the Imprint
of tho ribs of an oak leaf are mad be

It appears that where prlnter'a Ink

I was disappointed, and, turning away,
I met two well-dressed young men,
who embraced tho register eagerly,

great surprise and Joy: 'Hello, Tom!
Here's Howells.' 'Ohl I exclaimed,
turning toward them, 'I was Just look

see you. I bopo you're some fellows

they replied. It was the first personal

THEATER8 OF OLD COUNTRY.
In Many Cities They Are Controlled
hx the Government.
The recent theater horror In Chicago
bns turned the attention of the country
toward theaters In general and numer
ous cities are hurrying to "get their
housos In order" that such a catastro
phe may not occur to them, says the
Municipal Journal and Engineer. It
would speak bolter for these cities If
they did not need such prompting. In
many cities on the continent the opera
tion of theaters Is not left to private
concorns, but the municipalities have
erected the playhouses or subsidized
them, and this Idea Is gradually
In Vienna the court theaters were
erected by the state on state lands and
consist of two buildings for different
phases of the drama. The opera house
for operas, ballets and concerts, cost In
tho neighborhood of $2,548,075, while
th Ilurg Theater, for tho drama Itself,
cost (03,530. These theaters are the
property of the Emperor's treasury
and aro maintained by the lord cham
berlain's department, and whenever
the revenue does not cover the ex
penses the Emperor's civil list makes
up the difference. The chamberlain's
department assumes no responsibility
In extending the grant, which Is looked
after by the Hungarian government
Besides the state grants, the Iloyal
Opera House and other theaters In
Budapest receive different grants from
thestate and other smaller grants from
tho city. The provincial towns of Hun
gary assist theater, managers by al
lowing free use of buildings and help
ing to defray cost of heating and light
ing. Belgium grants subsidies to com
posers, whoso works aro produced In
a Belgium thoster, and, In addition,
subsidies aro given to composers pro
ducing their works In French, Flemish
or Walloon. Most of the cities sub
sidize or own several theaters, somo
are given rent free, and In most of
them the scenery and furniture belong
to tho town.
At Sophia, Bulgaria, the city Is to
erect a theater as soon as enough mon
ey Is accumulated from the state lot
tery. In Franco, tho four national thea
ters occupy the buildings rent free, but
thoy must pay the taxes, provide for
maintenance and allow larger repairs
to be made by the state without claim
for damages through Interruption. An
annual subsidy Is granted to each the
ater by the national parliament, ware
houses aro provided for storing
scenery. The three largest tiieaters
must submit to regulation ot tbo
choice of pieces produced, prices of
scats, number ot performances, as well
as tht number of new pieces per year,
the minimum numbor ot artists of each
class In the company, the auditing of
accounts by tho Minister of Finance.
In tho case of the company called tho
Corned! Francalse, It manages Its In
terests under state supervision, but
some great work must be put on every
month, or two smaller works nowly
wrltton or revised, Including somo
pieces by living authors. All the other
theaters aro freo from atnto control,
although other towns grant subsidies.
A largo number of musical societies
receive encouragement from tho cities
by grants and medal for good work.
In Berlin tho royal Prussian opera
house and playhouse rccclvo together
tho sum of 1270,000 and tho Innd on
which they stand belongs to the sUte.
Only ono thenter In Home, Italy, he
longs to the city, hut In Florence, the
municipal hand receives 300 a year
and further small sums for tho music
stand nnd maintenance. Milan owns
part of one of her theaters and sub
sidies nre given others. Lisbon has
two theaters owned hy the state, one
having been erected In 1703 by private
There are three state tiieaters at St
Petersburg nnd threo at Moacow main
tnlncd at the expenae of the Emperor.
In tlio principal towns are tiieaters es
tablished by the state and In which are
produced dramas for the education of
the people. The prices are very low.
At St. Petersburg, Warsaw and Klcff
the temperance societies maintain
these popular theaters, but are granted
subsidies, the amounts In the first
named city totaling over 11,500,000 dur
ing the last five years.

. During the reform riots In Hyde
Park, London, in 18(10, the mob, on a
well-remembered night began tearing
down the fences of Hyde Park for tires
and barricades. Colonel Thomas Went
worth Hlgglnson tells In tho Atlantic
Monthly of an English officer who was
dining with a friend, all unconscious
of the Impending danger. Presently
ho received a summons from the War
Department telling him that bis regi

He hastened back to his own house,
but when be called for bis horse he
found that his Bervant had received
permission to go out for tho evening,
and bad the key of the stable In bis

uniform, and then had to proceed on
foot to the Guards' Armory, which lay
on the other side of Hyde Park. Walk
ing hastily lu that direction, he came
out unexpectedly at the very neadquar
ters of the mob, where they were al
ready piling up the fences.
His uniform was recognized, and nn
gry shouts arose. It must have seemed
for the moment to the mob that the
Lord had dellvoted their worst enemy
Into their hands.
There was but ono thing to be done.
He made hts way straight toward the
center of action, and called to a man
who was mounted on the pile, and was
evidently the leader of the tumult:
"I say, my good man, my regiment
has been called out by ber Majesty's
orders. Will you glvo me a hand over
The mail hesitated a minute, and
then said with decision, "Boys, the
gentleman Is right He is doing his
duty, and wo have no quarrel with
him. Lend a hand and help him over."
This was promptly done with entire
respect and the officer In his brilliant
uniform went hastily on his way amid
threo cheers from the mob. Then' the
mob returned to Its work, to complete
It If possible beforo he whom they bad
aided should come back at the head of
his regiment, and perhaps order them
to be shot down.

How to Bleep.
It Is not uncommon to hear people
say "I wns too tired to sleep" but it
Is not generally known bow great n
help It Is nt such times not to try to
sleep, hut to go to work deliberately to
get restctl In preparation for It In
nlno rases out of Ion It Is tho unwill
ingness lo He nwnko thnt keeps '.is
awake. Wo toss nnd turn nnd wish we
could sleep. Wo fret, nnd fume, nnd
worry, beenuse wo do not sleep. We
think of nil wo havo to do on tho fol
lowing dny nnd nro oppressed with
the thought thnt wo cannot do It If we
do not slfcp. First, wo try ono experi
ment to sec If It will not mnko us
sloop, nud when It fnlls, wo try another
nnd perhaps nnollu-r. In each experi
ment wo nro watching to sco If It will
work. There nro mnny things to do,
any one of which might help us to1
sleep, but tho wntehlng to see If they
will work keeps us nwnke.
When wo nro kept nwnke from our (
fntlgue, tho first thing to do Is to say
over nnd over to ourselves that we do
not onro whether wo sleep or not, In
order to Imbuo ourselves with n
healthy Indifference nbotit It. It will
help toward gaining this wholesome In
difference to nny "I nm too tired to
sleep, nnd therefore, the first thing for
me to do Is to get rested In order to f
prepare for sleep. When my brain Is.
well rested, It will go to sleep; It ennnot
help It. When It Is well rested, It will
sleep Just ns naturally ns my lungs
breathe, or ns my henrt beats." Les
