Explosion by Music. One of tho most dangerous of all explosives Is a black powder called Iodide of nltroiron. When It. Is dry the slightest touch will often en tine It. to explode with great violence. There appears to be a certain rate of vibration which thin compound cannot resist;. In experiments to determine the cause of II.H extreme exploslveness some dnrnp Iodide of nitrogen w;is rubbed on the strings of :i buss viol. It Is known that the strings of such an Instrument will vilinil" when those of a similar Instrument having an oi|unl tension are played upon. In this case, ff'ter the explosive had become thoroughly dry upon the strings, another buss viol was brought near and the strings sounded. At ft certain riolo the Iodide of nitrogen on the prepared Instrument exploded. It was found that the explosion occurred only when a rate of vibration of sixty a second was eoni- immiealed to tin; prepared strings. Vibration of flit; (I string caused an explosion, while that of the K string hud no effect.--Chicago Kocord-i'IoraKl. Everything In Proportion.

"Tomorrow you may have something to eat," promised tho doctor. The merchant realized that there would be a restraint to his appetite. yr»t he BUW In vision a modest steaming meal placed at hla bedside. "Here Iff your dinner," said the nurse next day as she gave tho glowering patient a spoonful of tapioca pudding, "and tlie doctor emphasises •'that everything else- you do must be in the same proportion." Two hours later the nurse heard a frantic call from the bedchamber. "Nurse," breathed the man heavily, "I want to do some rending, firing me a postage stamp."—Harper's Weekly, DELINQUENT TAX LIST ^-rr-r^fcir-^tJiii-.City 1 oj.Covina,.California, for the fiscal year 1906-190". * Assessed to .

I. C. FAIRLY, Tax Collector of the City of Covina. Covina, California, Feb 8, 1908. Force of a Cyclone. Careful estimate of the force of a cyclone and the energy required tc keep a hurricane In active operation reveals tho presence of a power that makes the mightiest efforts of man appear an nothing In comparison. A force equal to more than 'KiO.OOO.OOG horsepower was estimated as develop ed In a West Indian cyclone. This greatly exceeds tho power that could no developed by all the moans within tho range of man's capabilities. Wore steam, water, windmills and the strength of all men and imhimM combined they could not even approach tho tremendous force of this mighty power.—Chicago Journal. Word Derivations.
