The terribie bubonic plague, which appeared lu Hougkong iu 1S94.

spread from there to Bombay aud iu the next twelve years carried off more than 6.000,000 victims, has been almost quiescent for the past few years, but in 1910 it appeared iu a virulent form In Harbin, has since spread to other cities and is now a worldwide menace. More alarming than the reappearance of the disease in Manchuria is the discovery of the disease iu the eastern coastwise counties of England, where several deaths have occurred. Until ItXHi little was known regarding: the mode of propagation of this terrible disease, although the disease itself is as old as history. In l'AHJ the Indian plague research commission definitely traced the spread of the epidemic to the fleas on the black rats of the country. The rats themselves have the disease.

A flea which sucks the blood of the rat takes the germs into its stomach. If the flea bites a human being within a period of three weeks the germs are transferred and the human being contracts the disease. Until recently it had been suposed that only the black rat is susceptible to the plagie and that only the flea known as Fulex cheopis could transfer It. Later discoveries, however, have shown that the common brown or Norway rat is also liable to the disease and that it may be transferred by the ordinary rat flea. Still another matter of great interest has been disclosed by the cases in England, which are not the bubonic, but the even more deadly and more dangerous pneumonic plague.

The bubonic form, in which the lymphatic glands swell and suppurate, is trans ferabie only through some such medium as the rat and the flea. The pneumonic form, on the other hand, is directly Infectious. Youth's Companion. A strong. Torture and Death Uaed to the Price For Thia Pastime.

People who went out of their tvay to libel their sovereign lu days gone by did not usually get off so lightly as did the defendant in a recent notorious case. For Instance, Lcih Hunt, the famous essayist and poet, was sent to prison for two years exactly twice the length of Myllus' term for calling George IV. "a fat Adonis of And George was not even king at the time, only regent. Going back further still, we find John Stubbs. a student of Lincoln's Inn.

arrested for libeling Queen Elizabeth, lie was sentenced to have his right hand cut off. and the barbarous punishment was inflicted In public in the market place at Westminster by driving a cleaver through the wrist with a mallet. Then there was that unhappy Walter Walker, grocer, at the Sign of the Crown, who said he would make his son heir to the crown. When Edward IV. was told of this merry jest he ordered Walker to be arrested ami put to death for treason.

Almost as hard was the fate of the Buckinghamshire churl who. drinking one day in a village ale house, spoke disrespectfully of Henry VIII. "King Hal." he hiccoughed, "is no true king. Would 1 had his crown here that I might play football with it." The II-bcler was hanged, drawn and quartered, and pieces of his body were distributed as a warning among the market towns of the county. In the reign of Charles I.

an individual published a seditious libel concerning his majesty. The book containing the libel was burned before his face by the common hangman, while Its author stood in the pillory in two places, having an ear cut off at each. He wore a paper on this head describing the offense, was ordered to pay a fine of 3.000 and suffer perpetual Imprisonment. A libeler of King Alfred suffered the loss of his tongue. Pearson's.

The Great Waste That Comes With Making Up Their Beds. In logging operations the felling of one of the big trees requires much skill in order that it may not be broken in the fall, as such an accident means perhaps the loss of fully owing to the value of the wood. As yet, however, the old method prevails of cutting it part of the way through with the crosscut saw worked by two men, the ax being used for an incision on the opposite side, the trunk being felled by means of wedges. In felling the tree, a number of smaller ones are frequently cut down to form a bed on which it may fall so that it will not break ou account of its weight. Here is a great waste, since the felling of a fir 150 tons in weight may require the sacrifice of a group of other trees which at maturity would equal It iu size.

In the "clearings" may be seen thousands of the young trees which have been cut down merely for "beds." Undoubtedly a mechanical system could be -utilized in the work, such as a portable power derrick, the top of which could be attached to a tree by the block and tackle system, thus al lowing the trunk when cut through to be lowered gradually by menus of ropes of steel cable without the timber being injured and the crushing of the smaller trees near it. Y. A. Day in Casslor's Magazine. The Dead Sea Is Spreading.

The IVad sea is encroaching upon the land about it so rapidly iu this decade that whole forests of trees which formerly grew at some distance from its banks are now partially submerged. Maps of the sea made twenty years ago show an island near the northern extremity of the lake which was cot found during a recent survey, and it is supposed that this has been lost in the rising waters. The Turkish government sold the mining rights ou the shores to a syndicate for about $330,000, and if the sea for some unknown reason continues to rise these holdings will be almost unattainable Cards For the Puppies. A novelty in Paris is the lap dog visiting card. Poms and pugs which go visiting with their mistresses in fashionable circles have their own tiny pasteboards tucked away In little pockets of their outdoor coats.

Such dogs have two sets of cards, which are duly left on other dogs at the houses where they are calling with their mistresses. One card gives the dog's real name and its race, while the other records its pet name joined to the family name of its owner. Cards are left according to the pedigree of the dog visited. Australia and Our Canal. The advantage of the Panama canal to Australia Is thus referred to in a Melbourne paper: "It means that ir another three or four years we shall have to rearrange our mail service tc Europe aud our whole oceanic trans portatlon service.

The Suez route tc Britain will go by the board must go because the Panama canal will shorten the journey to and from Britain by several days and thus put all users of the new route in possession of an incomparable economic advantage over users of the old."

The Ignorance That Exists In Russian Official Circles. The following amazing story illustrates how deep is the Ignorance of Russian officials on some matters and how bitter is their hatred of even the mere mention of the name of the late Count Tolstoy. It is required by the Russian law that whenever a concert is to be held the police shall be notified of the fact. Recently a club complying with this injunction also forwarded a copy of the program, wherein appeared the item "Kreutzer Sonata." Across this the chief of police wrote, "Tolstoy prohibited." However, the program was proceeded with unaltered, and. hearing this, an infuriated chief of police summoned the directors of the club before the governor.

"How dare you disobey orders!" they were asked. "You were told that Tolstoy was prohibited." Light dawned on the concert pro- moters, and they quickly explained that the "Kreutzer Sonata" which ap-j peared in their program had no refer-i ence to Tolstoy's book of that title, but to a musical work composed by Bee-i thoven. "Everybody knows Tolstoy," snapped the governor, "but who knows your Beethoven?" It was only by a telegraphic appeal to M. Stolypin, who assured the governor that there was such a person as Beethoven and that he had written a "Kreutzer Sonata," that the club officials were able to convince the governor that he had jumped to a hasty and wrong conclusion. How to Arrange the Garden.

Tut the small fruits and permanent vegetables (asparagus, rhubarb, herbs) at one end of the garden. Put strawberries nearest the piowable land. Run the rows north so that the sun will shine ou both sides of every plant. Make a path three feet wide or more along two sides of the garden at right angles to the rows. Have no path iu the center.

Make a path a foot wide between every five rows of email vegetables. Put the tall vegetables (com and pole beans) where they will not shade the small vegetables that is, at the north end of the garden. Use the warmest, highest and best drained spot for the earliest crops viz. the first sowing of peas, with spinach, lettuce and radishes between the rows. Country Life In America.

Historical House Crumbling. One of the most important landmarks in southern California, the old adobe house southeast of the Raymond hotel.
