The buu had set In a riot of red over tho smoke-wreathed roofs of tho transpontine shipping town, leaving In Its tvvilit wake tho silvern oycnlng star; fllrny wisps of haze settled on the river below; tho retlttiug yards on the opposite bank bad sunk to silence; far down the river tho bright, bluish lights of the deckB spranK into being like magic stars There were other reasons for Tom's contentment.

How Millions of Dollars Worth of Art< Treasures Have Been Securely and Secretly Sunk Beneath the Waters of the War-Torn Little Kingdom to Save Them from the Germans London, Dec. IS. UK Belgian authorities at Antwerp have buried the most precious of A their art treasures s-'ccretly and se curely beneath the Hiver Scheldt in order that the German invaders may not lay hands on them. Alarmed by the loss cI pictures and precious objects at. Liege, Louvain and other cities, the Belgians determined to take effective precautions to prevent an even greater calamity at Antwerp. It is estimated that the art treasures .if Antwerp are worth $1,000,000,000. It need hardly be added that to preserve them for unhappy and ruined Belgium is a really great national service. Photographs have already been published showing the Belgians removing Itubens's "Descent from the Cross" and other famous masterpieces from the Cathedral of Ant werp. But it was not known what had been done with them. They were p...

By Lady Duff-Gordon ("Luciie") m HERE Ib no doubt now that, for the com ing season at least, all your new models must be of American creation. Your beloved label "Imported" will no longer be a recommendation for the gown or hat to which it 1b attached. And why not? I'll tell you a secret. I know many goods?not necessarily dresses?that for years have been labelled "Imported"?and yet they never saw the Bea! But one word of warning. It does not follow that because America will create the newest fash ions, any American who launches a new idea can take upon herself to say that her creation is the new and particu lar note for the coming season any more than any French woman V In Paris can do the Game thing un less she has a rep utation behind her for unerring Judg ment in what is good. Being young, you must experiment and await the sur vival of the Attest that you wear at jrour theatres, your horse ehowB and your operas. At such places, as In Paris, the beet comes to the top, and Is unive...

? Slow FLANK GET HIED and FEEL PAIN Just as We Do By Prof. J. C. Bose, M. A., D. S C. Y experiments with plants seem to bring them much nearer to human beings than we ever ?** thought. Plants are not a mere mass of vegeta tive growth; every fibre in them is instinct "*ith sensi bility. Plants answer to outside stimuli, the responsive twitches increasing with the strength of the blow that strikes them. We are able to record the throbbing of a plant's pulsating life, and find these wax and wane according to the life conditions of the plant and cease with the death of the organism. The whole plant is made one by connecting threads, so that the tremor of excitation started in one place goes through every part of it. This nervous impulse, as in man, can be accelerated or FLOWERS and VEGETABLES "A hypodermic injection of alcohol makes the gait of the response of a plant as ludicrously unsteady as that of the village drunkard on his way /iome from a debauch." arrcstoil under tho several ac...

What damage was done by the bombs thrown by the attacking? party could not be ascertained, but the German re port of the attack says the raid was fruitless. The enterprise of the British navy In thus attempting: to "dip out" the Gorman fleet brought about a battle between the most modern of war ma chines. The British squadron, includ ing the light cruisers Arethusa and Undaunted, which have been engaged in previous exploits, on the German coast, were attacked by Zeppelins and submarines. By rapid manoeuvring.*the ships were able to avoid the submarines, while the Zeppelins found the fire of the cruisers too dangerous for them to con tinue tho fight. The Germa...
