A Threat That Always Brlngt Eng.
land' Upper House to Terms.
To override the veto of Ibe bouse of
lord by a vrbolenale creation of peers
In a plan that can beeo often threat
en t-d. bat hardly erer put Into prac
tice. It certainly places tbe king In a
very unenviable predlramrnl-o much
so that In 1710. after a crista of tbe
Jtlnd. George 1. caused to be Intro
duced Into tbe lords a bill for limiting
tbe power of tbe sovereign to create
peer, a nort of royal self denying or
dinance. Tbe measure was twice passed In tbe
lords, but twice rejected by tbe com
rnonn. wbli-b waa lucky, for bad It
been ranird It would bave made tbe
bouse of lords an almost unchangeable
body, entirely beyond tbe control of
king or minister or commons.
Tbe nearest approach that was ever
made to -swamping tbe lords' was In
1832. wben tbe fate of tbe great re
form bill trembled In tbe balance. Over
and over again tbe measure bad been
passed by tbe commons, only to be re
jected by tbe lords. Tbe country was
furious. Payment of taxes was re
fused. Mow broke out everywhere.
Tbe prime minister. Lord Grey, went
to tbe king and begged blm to create
new peers to carry tbe bill, nis maj
esty refused, and tbe ministry re
signed. Tbe king, however, presently
changed his mind and. fearing a revo
lution, agreed to tbe creation of a hun
dred new peers, 'or more If necessary ."
Then, very reluctantly, tbe upper bouse
gave way. and tbe bill became law.

A Murder Cass In Which They

Tbe German emperor some time ago

Suspicion fell upon two young soldiers.
Halpu and Alfred, who were suitor
for her hand. They both denied thuli
guilt, aud even torture failed to ex
tract a confession from either.
Then Elector Krederjck William de
elded to rut tbe knot by means of the
dice box, Tbe two soldiers should
throw for their Uvea aud tbe loser
should bo executed as the murderer.
The event was celebrated with great
solemnity. Ralph had tbe first chance
aad threw sixes, tbe highest possible
number. Tbe dice bos was then given
to Alfred. Ho fell 'on his kneea and
prayed. Then he rose to his feet and

The Sun.
It is computed that tbo temperature
of tbe sun would bo expressed by 18,-
000 degrees of Fahrenheit's thermome
ter, or about ninety times the tempera
ture of boiling water. This Is about
Ave times the temperature that man Is
able to produce by artificial means.
The light given off from tbe surface of
tbo suu Is reckoned aa being 0,300
times mora Intense than thst of tbe
molten metal in a Bessemer converter,
thourJ that is of an almost blinding
brilliancy, or. If we compare It with
tbe oxyhydrogen flame, tbe sun sheds
a llgbt equal In brilliancy to 140 times
tbe intensity of tbe limelight.
Plant Thst Feigns Oesth.
In South America there U a plant,
a species of mimosa, which resorts to
death feigning, evidently for tbo pur
pose of prevailing grass eating ani
mals from eating it. In Its natural
state this plaut has a vivid green
hue. but directly It is touched by a
human finger or by any living animal
it collapses Into a tanglo of apparently
dead and withered stems. Among
British wild plants the most sensitive
to touch is the Insectivorous sundew
of English bogs. Loudon Globe.

Its Relation to 8tsndsrd Time I- Thle
Standard time Is the time in nun
mon use regulating the ordlmiry iif
fairs of life. It Is derived from the
sun. Leaving out of bitoiiiiI mniill
Irregularities of tbe solar motion thai

seta In tbe west. It Is evident that
wben it is crossing tbe meridian or
any place it must have already passud
that of places to tho eastward and
not yet reached that of places to the
westward, in other words, wben it is
noon in the given place It is forenoon

Tbe time of these meridians Is re

Laugh and Orow Fat.
"Laugh and grow fat" U an otd say
ing, aud there is more than a little
truth In It, asserts a doctor. "Tbe
convulsive movements which we call
laughter exert a very real effect upon
the bodily framowork. They cause the
arteries to dilate, so that they carry
moro blood to tbe tissues of tbe body
and the heart to beat moro rapidly, so
that the flow of tbe blood through (he
vessels is hastened. In other words,
laughter promotes the very boat condl
tions for nu Increase of tho vital proc
esses. Tbe tissues take up more nu
tritive material and Ibe waste products
are more promptly removed. A guod
laugh sends an Increased flow of blood
to tbe brain. This immediately causes
that instrument of thought to work
better, with the result that gloomy
forebodings are scut packing."
The Origin of the Mastiff.
Mastiff la a term applied to a very
large and powerful species of tbe ca
nine family, and there Is considerable
conflict of opinion regarding the origin
of tbe word. Some claim that It is de
rived from tbe Italian mastino or the
French mastln, both of which signify
large limbed. This word, they say,
was gradually corrupted Into ronsty, a
Lincolnshire expression meaning very
large, muscular or big. until it grad
ually assumed Its present form. Oth
ers again say Its true origin Is the old
