PLANET DESTROYED BY HEAT Possibility That Our Own World May Meet the Same Fate Through the Rays of the Sun. Worlds, with probably millions of human beings like ourselves, have been destroyed anJ turned into clow-ins gas by a stupendous conflagration In the heavens. The sun to which these worlds he-longed must have rushed into a zone of heated gas and have had its atmosphere set on fire. It was toward the end cf last summer that the vast outbreak was first seen, but it was only lately that astronomers realized its awful significance. Xow it is known that the star which caught fire had its heat in creased by no less an amount than five hundrod thousand times in the course of a few days. Can anyone imagine our own sun filling the sky with its blaze and sending forth a heat hundreds of thousands of times greater than it does at present. Humanity would be withered as a leaf dropiel into a white hot furnace and the earth itself would melt wiih fervent heat. Yet there are those who predict such a fate as that for our planet. Glass-Covered Electric Meters. The use of the glass-covered meter is increasing, and many central station men and manufacturers believe thai they will 1k ordered in greater numbers when deliveries become easier. Companies which are nsinsr meters find that they facilitate the settlement of complaints, especially when a meter is suspected of creeping. Customers prefer a meter that can be seen working. The objections to jrlass covers- have for the most part been overcome. Unevenness of the edge of the cover which might cause a poor fit has been taken care of by a felt casket, consequently no trouble from this source has been experienced. Condensation, which sometimes appears on the outside of the glass could be present on the inshle of metal covers without being noticed upon inspection of the outsitle. Electrical World. Pittsburghers Will Bore. After having tried, for a number of years, to get over and around the hills surrounding their city, the residents of Pittsburgh have decided to strike at the heart of the difficulty and go through them. Accordingly tunneling operations have been gotten under way whrch, when completed, will result ( in a double-tube bore that will accommodate pedestrian, street car and vehicular traffic, says Popular - Mechanics Magazine. The estimated cost of the Undertaking is between $2,000,000 and $3,000,000, and It is expected that twe years will be required for Its completion. It establishes no precedent," as another bore, made several years "ago, has given satisfactory service, although reserved for the use of street cars only. Egg Proved Effective Weapon. She was tall and exceedingly thin and when she emerged from the 4iit of the building where she Is employed in taking dictation she carried in her hand a bag of fresh eggs. The product. of the hennery was no more fresh than are some members of the mashers' club that Is wont to frequent that corner and as she passed one -young man he ogled her and saluted her with "Hello Slim." Turning square around In her tracks the girl took an egg from the sack and with an aim that would do credit to a baseball pitcher she pasted him with it In the very middle of his back. Then she went on her way unconcerned over the merriment resulting from the little. epispde, Tulsa World. submits the following list of trees and shrub trees that are in the reservation. Mr. Traster offers a reward for merit to any scout who can find these and add eight mors to the list. Mr. Traster says that he has found 19 more, so they are not all listed.

South An-erU-a has caucht the aerial fever hard, aceordins to Madam traoe Fjorde. just returned from a grand qera circuit of the Latin-American republics. in Lima, where I sang in the palace at a concert arranged by President Leguia. I learned the rich young men of Peru all own airphmes in which they .iaily fly .ut and back from the capital city to their haciendas," she said. "The President's son told me he shortly intendd to make a flight to the United States, crossing Ecuador, the Panama canal, the Central American republics and Mexico. Events like the opera an-1 bull fights, and even offerings of the shops, are advertised by doners dr.pp-d from flying machines." Madam Fj-rde is the first woman to fly over Lima.

Recently mea have undertaken to mine nitrates, or some of the material for nitrates, from the air. There Is nitrogen enough in the air, no doubt, to blow civilization off the earth w re that nitroiren concocted into ex-.lesi es. Now comes a hoful Ierman scl-ei-tist named U"edel. who believes that the air itself may be fertilized to such an extent that plants will hound forth from their seeds like tennis balls. He would fill the air where rh'nts are imbedded with carbon dioxide cfH-bonic acid gas). Plants love this ;ras as a fresh-air crank loves the out of doors. They use it ambitiously, but could use more. Man expels It with his breath. Plants take It up and expel oxygen, which man can use. Thus men and plants are mutually helpful. But more carbon dioxide Is always a good thing for the vegetable world, and Doctor RIedel proposes to supply more. He would get his supplies from the blast furnaces. Vhose great lungs expel this gas. An industry which uses 4.000 tons of coke per day expels 35,-000.000 meters of gasC of which about 20 per cent Is carbon dioxide. Doctor Riedel has tried fertilizing the air in this way, and his happy plants have flourished amazingly. Gymnastic Dancing Passing. The waltz of our grandmother's days but with a fascinating touch of "hesitation" has come back to our jazz-weary ballrooms. It became all the rage after much opposition when the Czar Alexander danced It at Al-mack's In 1814; and since the Prince of Wales likes It and dances It today a new vogue for the waltz is assured. Dancing evidently Is to be less gymnastic and more sentimental. Anxious mothers will not repine. The dreamy waltz was a match maker in their day and perhaps it will be In ours.

P K T Arr?c;can Writer cf Opinion There Are Things His Countrymen Could Profitably Absorb. Ttey are a wonderful folk, these French, and there is no people from whom Americans can learn more of the art of living. While we. with our h:;h rents, are harassed hy the question of vine-' o live, they, in spite of their high rents, think only of how tn live. We would do well to spend less thought on the abode and more on the mod. We could learn from them to forget ocr national timidity and to discover our next-door neighbors, says a writer in Leslie's. The contrast bet ween the excited 1:z2 an I chatter and gayety that strikes one on entering even the mos; ho-.iielv French restaurant and the frisrh'ened and tremulous whisj-ering I thrown in l-etween long intervals of dg 1 eaTins that goes on in our own reurnr:ts i enough to shame any gsl American. We could learn from th'-r.i to put aside our little pamphlets n Tacts Al.oyt Sugar" long enough to e: y the It-r.uty of a hillside and ::n make enough money out of the sucat business. ;r shopkeepers could learn that P"!i:er;ess dos not drive away trade.

FINDS SECRET OF HIS ORIGIN Natives of Guam Enlighten Marine; Disar-ree With the Theories Put Forward byOarwin, The theory that he had sprung from sorre remote protoplasmic organism, that his twenty-tlmes-great-grandfather was wire-haired baboon in the wilds of Abyssinia and other near-Darwinian monstrosities, were all regarded by Senreant John Burrows of the marine corps as so much 'hunk." Still, his mind w as never at rest. The sergeant re-enlisted after the war and was ordered to finam. The other day a letter was received at the marine corps recruiting head quarters. It came from Sergeant Bur rows in Guam. "At last." he stated. "1 have discovered where my an-estrrs have come fro-n." Tbt- sorrr-:nt explaii ed that natives of the iaiid h:d enlightened him. In accounting for the origin of man. they said that everything in the world was derived from a certain rock on the island of Guam, . which , first became human, then a stone, and gave birth to all men. From this island men were scattered all over the world. They forgot their language and "talked like fools without understanding one another nor 'knowing what was said.
