GERMANY HAS GONE MESO . nesHORIUsMM MABD. thorium, the latest of the mult u e o cancer oures to be announced. The. London "Times" asserts that "there is hardly a town of importance in the country which has not voted a large sum from the public funds for the pur pose of purchasing some of the costly material. and where public funds are not forthcoming, concerts, bazaars, and such like means are adopted for raising money for the same purpose." 1Mesothorium is said to have the power of emanating rays similar to but much more effective than radium, and the cost seems to be almost as great.

So you claim the world'is round," sneered the sceptic. "How do you know that it is not square?" "Be cause I have had too many dealings with it," grimly replied Columbus. "I wish this fellow wouldn't send you so many chocolates," said the other suitor. "Why ?" simpered the girl. "Are you jealous?" "No; but I prefer to eat marsh mallows." "Your eyes-are my only books," said the poet. "Blue-books are not interest ing reading, generally," she returned, softly. And he-well, he was glad her mamnma had fallen asleep.
