The regions of space beyond our planet are filled with flying fragments Some meet the earth in its onward rush; others, having attained inconceivable velocity, I8EBELS ABE ACTIFE. Are Intrenching Taenuelres Wear a Church at Malabon Before the American Lines. Batteries An Being Mounted and AH Preparations For Trouble Are glare, finding destruction in its molecular armor or perhaps ricocheting from it again into the unknown. Some come singly, vagrant; fragments from the infinity of space; others fall in showers like golden rain, all constituting a bombardment appalling In its magnitude. It has been estimated that every £4 hours the earth or its atmosphere is struck by 400,000,000 missiles of iron or atone, ranging from an ounce up to * tons in weight. Every month there rushes upon the flying globe at least 12,000.000,000 iron and stone fragments, which, with lurid accompaniment, crash into the cir- cumambient atmosphere. Owing to the resistance offered by the air few of these solid shots strike the s o s s r e t e earth. They move out of space witfc a possible velocity of 30 or 40 miles per second, and. Hke moths, plunge Into the revolving globe, tared to their destruction by tig atal attraction. The moment they enter our atmosphere they ignite, the ate is piled up and compressed ahead of them nth Inconceivable force, the resultant friction producing an immediate rise In temperature, and the shooting star, the meteor of popular parlance, is toe result. --C.

Senator Hansbrough said that lis bill providing that farmers may import seed wheat free of duty will me a law. This proposition is ttached to bill permitting circuses now howing in England to return to America without paying duty on the animals. The bin is now in conference, and the wheat amendment has been amended so that the farmer who desires to purchase seed wheat abroad shall file a bond in order to secure the government against loss. Mr. Hansbrough believ as that this amendment win be entirely satisfactory to the conference committee. South Dakota Solons.

One decision says: "One who receives no cer- t !! c * te °* appointment, takes no oath of office, has no term or tenure of office, discharges no duties and exercises no powers depending directly upon the author ity of law but simply performs snch duties required of him by the persons employing him and whose responsibilitv is limited to that as not an officer. The report also quotes other decisions on the same question and its conclusion is as follows: Upon the facts and the law we are of the opinion that Mr. Worst did not occupy to offices at the same time within the meaning of the constitution; that his employment by the trustees of the college did not create an office, and that he had a right to receive from tile federal government a salary for services performed during said tim* as professor of political economy and dire.-tor of the experiment station of the agricultural college. - doctors could give Do help: but her cure is complete and her health is ex cellent."
