The lower part of the river is some thousands of feet lower than the up per reaches, and it has long been thought that the unexplored middle region included a mighty cataract. It doesn't. The geographical world is sorry, but glad to know. Arabia is a country with vast pos sibilities for the ambitious explorer.

An aeronaut and his son met with an accident near Rouen: some years ago; through the car of their balloon having broken away, father 'and. son were thrown downwards, but the son had been caught when falling in a hook which pierced his coat. He was carried this way for some miles, ultimately coming to the ground in safety. His coat was pur chased by the makers and hung in their show windows, with a full de scription of how it saved the -wear er's life. And as a-fitting reward for ; their enterprise their sales actually doubled. A Welsh miller lost a sovereign in a bin of flour, and after spending' many unavailing hours in search of it told a friend of his misfortune. "Perhaps it will turn up in one of the sacks," suggested the friend, whereupon the miller waa seized with a brilliant idea. He advertised in the local papers, off...
