Jt wub dark in tho room except for justalittU- H^'lit that oamo from n turnmUlown lamp in » room adjoining. 1 could only sec u linlis of one silk- of tho wall of that otlu-r room, for the dour to it was opposite from whore 1 stood: diagonally. If you'd just U't mi; draw you a little diagram I could make it eli-ar to yon." lU-retho retired burglar proci-oiled to ilrav,' upon n patfu of UK- notfbooU- which tlio reporter haniied to him a. diagram. AVhrn he wi-nt 011 with his story lie indicated the points referred to simply by touching tlU'iu with the point of the pencil, but for tin- greater r.iiiven- ierit-e of the reader they are inarliod he-re with capital letters: ••Von see, 1 was standing in tho door hero [ho touched the diagram at the. point marked AJ. Here was the bed Mil, with the ln::>dboan! up itprainst the partition: this'[C| was tho bureau. There were .some chairs and one Ihintf and another round, but not very mneh, and there wasn't any carpet. The liylit •was very dim, but I could see some body in tho bed. You can see yourself jusl how much I could sou of the other room. "Well, 1 started across the room toward the bureau, kerpi:^ r :»'- eye on that door to the ritflit uutii 1 was half wny across, and tlien 1 looked out ahead until 1 struck the. bureau.

I didn't dare, move myself, and I stood thero facing 1 the bureau. But whoever it was in tho bed never stirred. I started then to turn and look, but before I'd turned fur enough around to see anything- I knocked gomething 1 oft tho other corner, I thought I'd never heard so much noise; 1 knew well enough what they were; they'were two children's Iron savings banks. I faced around (harp now, but whoever it was in the bed never moved, but I saw something in-ib«.next room that :nad« my hair nd up."I could see the other side of that room now from where I stood, and thf ro was here [upon another dia grtm that he had drawn he touched the pencil at D] a bed. F "Here [E], alongside the bed, was n chair; hero [I'M on n table at the foot of the bed was the • tnrm>(!-il<Hv:i lamp.

"All organic beings, without exception, tend to increase at so high u ratio that no district, no station, nor oven the whole surface of thu land or the •whole ocean, would hold the progeny of a ningle pair after it certain number of generations. The inevitable result is an ever-recurrent struggle for existence. It has truly been said that all nature is at war; tlio strongest ultimately prevail, thu weakest fall." Something like this statement by tho most celebrated of the naturalists will occur to the observant person without any skill in natural history who visits the Vhipps conservatory and tries to make out tho meanings of the curious features wliich so many of the plants present. For instance the big- Punilaiiu* -re- flexui, which no visitor will pass unnoticed. It has a militant look from the root up, its leaves, or whatever they are to be called, reminding one of tho ancient two-handed sword. That is, they do at first glance, but one must not.trust that or he will bo deceived. The leaf is not like a sword blade: only one-half of (t is. The whole leaf is of Hi u shape of a half-opened boon, un each edge and along thu center i' ; :l row of spines, which pierce like nei'dles. It is endogenous— that is, incrcnscs by interim! growth imd i'lon- | Kii'.ioii :it thu top, ;ind li;is no j bark to .stn.'iigtlu'U and orol'.'ct it- .fudging from ;i|ipcaraiux, i>nr \it thosu Ion 1 ;' lt v ;i.\'t;,> would lui racily ln-ola-n '»>' the push of an animal, and t" keep animals at their distance it lia< sent out those spines, wliich (ju:iril il H-'Hi'i three directions. A young aniur.i! which run against them once would ivmeiiilie.r them the next time, j" s t IIS calves and colts soon learn not ut play close to a barbed wire feuco. Tlusl'an- danus, which is one. of the ilfty s|»-cii;> 1 ropical of a genus which inhabit climes from Africa to I'olynesia, as it slicks out its Iteon spines and threatens to puncture the hide of anything wliich comes near it, seems to s:iy like the Scotch thistle: "Nobody can monkey with me with impunity. [ am a flphtor." That is ono reason why it is so big. It has made room for itself. In nature might is right; tho weaker goes to the wall. Some other fighters will be found in the palm house. One is easily found by its label, f.'il'tnia. biirboiiini, and it is particularly interesting in that it is an example of a plant protecting Us young, if that is the way to say it. Three outer stalk's, strong and well developed, each with its row «• sharp spines, eiu-.Uise and defend the tender central stalks. The leal' of :: central stalk, one may see, is not 'allowed to pass the older stalks, lest, i! sullVr damage. They keep it behind ihom as a mother mi^ht push her child behind her in time of danger. This young- leal' is kept in leading strings until the stalk has grown so that il can reach out over the others and lake care of itself. Meantime it will produce a set of spines and join the other stalls* in the groat tight which is to determine what plant is lit tost to survive. The instinct of animals is woudcri'ul, but the instinct of tho plant, is equally so, That mav be seen in the larger !.::tania. which states on its label that, those palms were discovered in South China- in ISIS. It has developed a body, and in that at the base of the brar."hps tho fruit grows. Carp must lie taken of that, for if the seed is not ripened they will not reproduce, and the species will suffer to that extent. Sec the spines on those branches around where tho fruit HPS. Lot an animal try to get into it and hi: would come on', with n son: hide. Tho plant would scratch him like a eat. The I'nndamis is erect. and so its spines stick straight ouU It wants to prevent animals from pushing against it. The palm wants to protect its fruit, and NO its spine points downwards, as much .as to say to a thief below: "You come up here and I'll jab your cyos out." In still another palm, the great one just, inside the main entrance to the conservatory. the spines arc eipht inches long, look like ijtilettoes, and form a perfect chevf.u-jc defriif. Man, with all his thinking how to make that obstruction to an enemy most complete, has not surpassed the genius of nature in so directing the points of these stilettoes as to cover every possible approach. As a fighter this big 1'henix mnnunt is the Jim Corbett of the palm house. And it is great on style. That is what some of the other fig-liters are not, as the cactuses. They take all sorts of shapes, in stature rising from creeping stems (though there are none HO large in the conservatory) to trunks thirty feet high, but are neither beautiful when small nor majestic when great They are too abominably stupid to put on style. But whatshould'one expect of a plant which wild grows io hot, stony places, and when cultivated is entirely happy in a sandy loam mixed with brick dust? One might as well expect style in those little black Italians of the pipe line, who have buen reared on mush and cucumbers. And tho pity of it is these cactuses are American from way back. I'retty nearly thuir only reede-eming feature is that they can light, llig or little, they arc ready to do battle, unless it be those granddaddies with tho loiiff white hair, which, like many men, are aged looking without being vencrabie. and make, one think they had best betake themselves to another world for all the good thfv arc doing- in this. Whoever it was that put the cactuses and the sleepy and leather-brained young alligators in the .same house in the conservatory "had an inspiration, for they .surely go tog-other. Hut that is not to say that these: plants arc uninteresting. l''ar from it. They oiler many- suggestions as to the humors of nature, and in their sphere they are useful. If they would only wake up and look alive: They seem doubly stupid to one who goes to them from the spirited plants in tho other parts of the conservatory. Ami even as one compares them to Uiu monkey pur.zle, tho Aruiifitrin im- bricuta, the young Chilian tree seen among them. The Araucanians were a South American tribe, noted for their fighting- qualities. In the late Chilian war the best soldiers are said to have been the descendants of those Indians, and the most capable statesmen and commanders of that plucky little country are said to be men of Araucanian blood. This tree is not un- liko them. It is called ImWcata because its still and hard loaves, with points sharp, are imbricated. Or overlapping-, like the shingles on a roof. It bears edible nuts, which the monkeys are said to like, but its brandies ani so arranged and its leaf points so needlelike that it puw-lcs a monkey to climb it. In it thrro is no sign of stupidity. It is wide awake, on guard at every quarter, fighting oft everything that would rob it, not only with its weapon- like leaves, but with such a placing of its branches as to provent the agile monkey from ascending it. In its strength, its resoluteness, its capacity for self-defense, in its dark green, almost black, it is a reminder of that valiant Araueanian tribe. Hut is there not lighting enough in our own struggle for existence that we need dwell on the fighting qualities of plants 1 . 1 Let us go and look .V.

A SIMPLE FIRE-ESCAPE. It Oil" HiM'il of I"- Wlimtiit friii^inj; IL I'iiti'Nt. The American patent ollice records show, in rocimt yeavs, a considerable waste of inventive energy in devices for lire-escapes. The iron balcony and stairway feature to give crowds ;L rapid exit where hasto is necessary was publicly suggested liin-; years before the modified spiral form cairn: into use. lint the handling of large crowds from upper halls, school rooms, etc., :s one thing ami the means of exi:, down the outside ni 1 a. Imrniug building of a few persons, wluiro no considerable expense- can lie incurred ill stationary structure the- devic , is unite another. Many 01' that inventive ingenuity has suggested uiv so complicated that only an expert, und could opei-ati! them: impracticable, and if among the patented ennli-ivances anyone really lills the bill, it has not cume under the writer's notice. A simple, easily procured, inexpensive and entirely practical means of escape from upper stories may bi: found in a stout duck sack and a strong rua- nilla rope. Tho sack should be dcop and wide enough to hold several persons and have a rope well bound around the top to which tho rope bail is attached. 1 f no appliance bu provided to hold a stout rail across the window on the inside, then several turns must be taken around some article of furniture, wife and children dumped into the sack, the husband paying out the rope and letting them down. The sack is then drawn up when the remaining occupant goes into the sack with tho slack end of tho rope, and pay ing it out lets himself down. Hope and sack will pass unhurt past considerable sheets of llame from windows hc!ow, and if occasionally treated vo a strong .solution of alum water, or even strong- brine*. are of diilicult ignition. The deep sack dispels tlic feeling of fear in not beholding the dixr.y height, and also protects from ilainc in passing windows. Kvery window should have- strong staples into which a rail can bu inserted, and wliich should be ever ready if needed. A cool head could thus let down, in many cases, numerous loads, and for that matter there may be rope enough to allow all the paying out and pulling up to bo done by some one on the ground. Private instructions should be in every room, and each occupant nhould be made familiar with the working-. It is not known that there is anything-simpler than this method, and its xise can carry no infringement, as nothing about the method is patent- able. When human beingsare forced to the dire necessity of either jumping down on hard pavements or being 1 roasted to death in Hamas there is a mostcrimlnal ignorance or lack of foresight that is responsible. Earnest thought and timely action in such matters may prove a good investment —Pittsbnrg- Dispatch. _ Queer Potion) In Tobacco. Chemists say Tnrklsh tobacco contains prussic aeid, and Cuban tobacco has another alkaloid called collidine, one-twentieth of a drop of which will kill a frog 1 , giving tho creature all the symptoms of paralysis. Kxpcrimcnts have proven that three drops of the liquor that accumulates in the bowl of the pipe will kill a rabbit in nine, min- Utos. A drop of pure nicotine inserted near the conjunctiva of any small animal will kill it almost instantly; eight drops will kill a horse, giving him frightful convulsions. If one drop of the, stuff would give a man convulsions one day it would take two the next, four on the third day, etc., which 'shows, how readily the system adapts itself to poison, Curloun Discovery In Science. A flrc caused by an October sun is a very unusual occurrence. A bed in an industrial homo for g-irls at Hamp- Btead, England, was discovered to be on lire, and the accident was regarded as the work of an incendiary. Experiments having been made, it eventually transpired that the lire was actually caused by the sun's rays falling upon a full water bottle, which was standing i" tllt; room between the opci. window and n mackintosh ?u the wall.
