"I've always thought I'd have a ranch—one with horses, cows and hogs. I'm tired of a city already. I'm homesick and want to go back to the country to work for that ranch." Twelve-year-old Henry Harris, after 24 hours in Houston, a strange city to him and a stranger among 100,000 persons, sat in the. office of Chief Noble «nd declared that his first runaway experience would be his last. The bright lights, locomotive shrieks, factory whistles, rumbling traffic vehicles and even the music along the congested thoroughfares had lost their favor and flavor, he said, and he was willing to return home—to father, mother, a sister and ...

WONDERS OF ETHER. TM Myttoriow Agent ft- - ' rnmm ■'^v I, ■ y All Etui more wonderful than light itself is the medium by which it* wives are carried. And what is this medium? It is not air, it is not gas, it is not liquid. Is it matter ? In order to be matter, as we under- stand it, a thing must possess two characteristic properties. One • of these is inertia; the other is weight. Inertia means the active resistance shown bv all matter to a change in its condition of rest or motion. Weight is the measure of the at- traction one body has for another, whether they be atoms or suns. The medium that bears light from star to star, or from a candle to the eye, so far as we know, has only one of the properties of matter—inertia. Are we .not justified, therefore, in saying; with our present knowl- edge of the subject, that the light bearing medium, called by scientists the km iniferous ether, is probably not a material thing? The various properties it must possess and with- out which it cot...

Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 31.—More than 500 horses have died of a strange disease in Nebraska in the last week, according to reports re- ceived at the office of the state veterinarian.

y' / P i •y System and Hurry On* May "Da" tha Capitel In Two Days. In every citv of note there are many things of more or less inter- est to all kinds of people and a few special things that appeal to every one. That is especially true of .Washington, where every true American should be vitally interest- ed in the things that pertain to the national government—that is, to us or the United States; it really means the same thing. A visitor here for a very sfiort time can easily see the few most im- portant things in two days by going at it in the right way. One day may be profitably spent beginning with the capitol. Go early and ex- amine the building, basement, main floor and terraces, bronze doors, pictures in the rotunda of historic interest and statues in the old hall of representatives. Don't fail to see the bronze balus- trades below the house and senate corridors and note the American fpme birds in the senate wing. Vis- itors are allowed in the legislative chambers until nearly...
