Snow Four Feet Deep
Morris Hayes and Bittner Hudclson
went on a fishing trip in the moun
tains out of Black Rock last Friday,
returning Sunday, and encountered
snow all the way from two to four
feet deep. They went as far as Black
Hock by auto and walked in the re
mainder of the way, a distance of
aomo miles up the mountain. Al
though there was plenty of snow the
fishermen did not suffer from the
cold. They found the water still too
cold for good fishing, with the re

The ancient Kgyptlana had at Ar

-the Labyrinth. There was one on
the Island of Lemnos, In the Aegean

Myth, tradition, legend, mystery and
awe are to be found In obscure say
ings about It In remnants of Greek
classical literature. It was composed
of ri.(MH) chambers, 1,500 below the
earth's surface and 1,500 abote. The
grand hlerophants permitted Herodo
tus to enter some of the chambers
above, but not below. The Greek writer
could scarcely find words with which
to describe the beauty and splendor of
the famous edifice. He aays:
"The upper chambers I myself vis
ited, and I pronounce them among the
grandest efforts of human Industry and
art. The almost Infinite number of
winding passages through the different
courts excited my highest admiration ;
from spacious halls I passed through
smaller chambers, and from them again
to large and magnificent saloons almost
without end. The walls and ceilings
are marble, the bitter embellished with
the most exquisite sculpture; around
each court pillars of the richest and
most polished marble are arranged.
"At the termination of the Laby
rinth stands a pyramid 100 cubits high,
approached by a subterranean passage,
and with Its exterior enriched by huge
figures of animals." Edgar Luclen

Early Workers in Copper.
From the very remotest times cop
per has been a favorite with metal
workers. The Assyrians, Egyptians,
Persians and Greeks were One metal
workers and claim some of the best
specimens of the art, Including the
hnnd-hnmmered copper statue of
Pepl I, a great Egyptian king, who
reigned in iilKK) B. C.
Another great work of art is the
Great Gate of Chalmaneser II, an As
syrian king contemporary with Ahab
of biblical times. The British museum
contains a niRrterpleee of hand-hammered
copper known as The Slrus a
pair of shoulder pieces for a suit of
armor, picturing a Greek warrior and

Many Flowers Give Warning of tho
Coming of Rain, if One Will Stop
to Observe Them.
Many ilowers are said to be eicellent
barometers. For instance. It Is when
the blooms of dandelions have seeded
and ure In the fluffy, feathery condi
tion that the weather prophet faculties
come to the fore. In fine weather the
ball expands to the full, but when the
rain approaches It shuts up like an um
brella. If the weather is inclined to
be showery, It keeps shut up all the
time, only opening when the danger
from the wet Is passed.
The ordinary clover and all its varl
etles, Including shamrock, are also ba
rometers. When rain Is coming the
leaves shut together like the shells of
an oyster. For a day or two before
rain comes their stems swell to an ap
preciable extent, and stiffen so that the
leaves are borne more uprightly than
usual. This stem swelling when rain
Is expected is a feature of many flower
The. figures at which the leaves of
the horse chestnut are made up keep

Vibration of tho Air Brings It to the
Car Travels Fatter In Summer
Than In Winter.
Sound Is transmitted to the ear
by the vibration of the air. When
one particle of air Is made to vibrate
It sets the adjacent particles to vi
brating, and so a sound wave, If not
obstructed, passes in all directions
from the sounding body. Tue calcu
lated velocity of sound In the air
when the temperature Is at freezing
point Is 915.09 feet per second. When
the temperature increases, sound
travels faster, and the rate has been
calculated at a little more than one
foot per second for each degree of
rise In Fahrenheit's thermometer.
Contrary to popular belief, sound
travels faster In summer than in
winter, and In warm than In cold
climates. It might be thought that
sound would travel more slowly
through a dense atmosphere, but the
elasticity Increases as rapidly as the
density, and, therefore, the velocity
of sound Is not affected by varying
density. The velocity of sound In
wafer, when at the greatest density, Is
4,707.4 feet per second. The experi
ments by which this velocity whs de
termined were made by M. Callaodln,
ia 1820, across the, Lake of Geneva,
from Rolle to Thonon, a distance of
about nine mils. Water, therefore,
transmits sound four times as fast as
NOTICE TO CREDITORS
NO OLD AGE PR03LEM HERE
Where laborers ure at work on an
electric railway of the third-track
class there Is alwuys danger If ordi
nary tools are employed, for the
touching of the third rail with a pick,
shovel or crowbar may lead to fatal
results. There was patented some
time ago a tool which Is Insulated
for the purpose of protecting the work
men on electric railways. In the case
of the usual shovel there is placed an
Insulating sleeve over the metallic
handle so that there Is no possibility
of grounding the current through the
workman should the tool come into ac
cidental contact with the "live" rail.
Furthermore, there Is made use of an
Insulating material of some distinct
color, which is an additional precaution.
Wild Oats That Travel.
We are all more familiar with "wild
oats" In a moral than a botanical
sense, yet in the latter It Is an article
of no small curiosity.
For one thing, It has a semi-Inherent
power of moving from one place to an
other. Let a head of It be laid down
in a moistened state upon a table and
left there for the night, and the next

This locomotive power possessed by
wild oats resides in the peculiar hard

, Adjustable Curve.
There Is a most ingenious drawing
instrument for making curves, which
was Invented by a Massachusetts man.
This device consists of a bow. 'a flex
ible rule pivoted at" Its ends to the ends
of the bow and having a pair of In
wardly extending studs, a flat reinforc
ing spring contracting with the inner
side of the rule and having Blots re
ceiving the studs and a screw-thread
ed adjusting device extending between
the center of the spring and the Dow.
By adjusting the screw-threaded mem
ber the curve may be changed to meet
all requirements within the range of
the Instrument. Perhaps the greatest
aDDlIcatton of this device Is in laying
out parabolas of varying sizes.

Indians of the Andes Mountains Kill
Those of Race Who Reach
nigh In the fastnesses of the Andes
mountains of Peru there lives a race
which sets an age limit and kills all
of Its people who reach the fateful
mark. In each village an official Is
appointed to terminate the careers of
persons who live too long.
Different communities, however,
have different ideas as to what limit
should be placed on human existence.
In some places the only duty of the
executioner appears to be to secure
the presence of a man at ids own fu
neral In the "title role." If a person
becomes so ill that his funeral becomes
a certainty in the near future, a date
is fixed for the same, and If the lead
ing figure shows a disposition to be un
punctual, the village executioner takes
the matter In hand.
The Andes natives are of Indian
descent, possibly from the Qulchau
Indians, according to scientists. They
live In adobe hovels and are said never
to remove their clothing. They are
very shy and have no diversions aside
from chewing coca leaves, from which
modern moentlsts extract cocaine.
