A Great Queen's Letter.
"We may wonder It the world will
ever bo allowed to see the private cor
respondence amassed bj tbe late Queen
Victoria," says a writer. "It is stored
away In a strong room built Into the
walls of Buckingham palace, and the
queen shared her confidence with no
one. So long as she was physically
able to do so she opened and closed
tbe safe herself and arranged its con
tents. When she was too feeble to do
this she employed an old and trusted,
secretary, but even he hod to work
under the royal eye. lie was never al
lowed to keep the keys nor to read the
letters that be handled.
"Queen Victoria was always a volu
minous letter writer, and she was In
constant communication with most of
the royalties in Europe. Every do
mestic secret and privacy of royalty
during half a century is said to be rep
resented by the contents of this won
derful safe, and it is easy to believe
that the modern historian would find
bis hands full if he were permitted to
browse among these letters.
"But probably he will have to wait
a few hundred yenrs. aud then his
popular audience win be a languid one.
It Is one of the Iron! of life that we
can never have things when we want
them." Chicago News.
Snake Killing Ants,
It is difficult to believe that ants will
kill snakes, but such la the case, and
scientists have discovered that in cer
tain regions this class of reptile has no
more persistent enemy. The large red
brown forest ants are tbe most Im
placable, and a curious thing about the
attack of these tiny creatures on the
reptiles is that they kill it for food and
not on account of natural antipathy.
When some of these ants catch sight
of a snake they arouse the whole com
munity at once. In platoons and bat
talions the little fellows set. upon it,
striking their "nippers" into Its body
and eyes at thousands of points at
once. So rapidly is this done that the
snake has no chauce of escaping. He
soon becomes exhausted and dies lgno
minlously. The ants then tear off the
flesh, gradually stripping off the skin
and working inside it. Not until thoy
have carried away everything except
the bones and the skin do tbey abandon
When "Lloyd's" Was a Coffes Housb.
The man who gave his name to the
great maritime institution, Lloyd's,
was not, as might be supposed, a finan
cier or a shipowner, but only a humble
coffee house keeper. Of his history
nothing is known save that he kept a
coffee house in Lombard street at the
beginning of the eighteenth century,
which, from its proximity to the Royal
Exchange, came to be a favorite assem
bling place of the underwriters. The
first mention of his house occurs In a
poem, "The Wealthy Shopkeeper," pub
lished in lTOOt- -

To read the letters and attend the sales.

the larger sea birds catch flying fish

flying fish use their fins at all as wings
is not fully decided. The power of
flight is limited to the time the fins re

place. There is a good orchard of 150
choice bearing fruit trees; 9-room resi
