A cherished popular pdiet is that of the sudden blanching of the hair from fright, worry or other severe mental strain. It nlays its part in the drama and in fiction, while his- tory records its famous instances. Who has not heard that Marie An- toinette's hair turned white during the night before her execution or that the deeds and terrors of St. Bartholomew's night blanched the hair of Henry IV.? Most of us wondered how the change could come about as rapidly a* tradition relates^ and yet so universal is the belief in this phenomenon that few have the hardihood to doubt it. And yet Stieda, a hard headed Ger- man scientist, boldly says that it isn't so at all. This refractory Ger- man first proves that such a thing couldn't possibly happen, and then, not...

DENMARK'S KING DIED ON STREETS. Monarch Unattended Was Ont for Stroll When His Final End Came. Hamburg, May 15.—King Freder- ick VIII of Denmark died unattended cm the streets of the city last night. The king, travelling incognito, ar- rived here Monday on his return trip to the south, where he had been convalescing from a serious attack of inflammation of the lungs. With the queen and the royal suite, he took quarters at the Hamburger Hof Hotel. At 10 o'clock last night the king left the hotel unaccompanied for his usual stroll before retiring. He- had gone but a short distance when he was overcome on the street by a sudden attack of apoplexy. He fell unconcious to the pave- ment and died instantly. When members of the king's suite became alarmed over his failure to return to the hotel, after a reason- able time, they called in the pro- prietor and search was begun. The searchers found his majesty dead at the hospital and brought his body back to the hotel with them. The king had b...

The former Baptist clergyman, who confessed to poisoning Avis Linnell of Hyannis, his sweetheart, was outwardly calm when he en- tered the death chamber, and he maintained his composure while the straps and electrodes were be- ¡ ing adjusted as he sat in the elec trie chair. Richeson walked to the chair erect, eyes straight ahead, until he sat down. Then he closed his eyes and kept them shut until the end. Seated in the chair, he was asked a series of questions by Rev.

BULLFIGHT IN A TREE. It Marked the Doom of a Famous Old Tim* Ohio 8ycamore. The greatest tree ever seen by white men in Ohio is believed to have been the enormous sycamore, or, more properly, buttonwood, which stood in what is now Valley township, Scioto county, in the rich bottom lands of the Scioto river. It was so prodigious in bulk that as early as 1810 it was described in the Cincinnati Almanac as one of the natural wonders of Ohio. In June, 1808, according to what seems reliable testimony^ a party of thir- teen persons, all on horseback, rode into the hollow trunk of this syca- more and found that room enough remained for two more horses and their riders. The tree forked about eight feet from the ground, and rt was hollow when first seen by the white settlers. The circum- ference of the trunk was about six- ty-three feet at the base, and five feet from the earth it was forty- two feet in girth. These figures re- mind the reader of the famous big trees of California. The openin...

These are the white corpuscles, or leucocytes. They haae been fa- miliar to physiologists since the flipt microscopic lenses were made, bat their function had been an ut- ter mystery.

mm LEAD FLINT GLASS. It It the Only Kind That Can Be Cut Suooeeefully. The cutting of glass is a fine art that has only within a few years de- veloped in the United States, but in the brief time since it began the American cut glass has surpassed that of any other country for bril- liance, sharpness of cutting and pure whiteness of material. There is only one kind of glass that can be cut successfully. This*, is called lead flint glass. It is much heavier than any other, much softer also and has a beautiful resonant metallic ring. The blanks as they come from the blowing factories are given to a cutter, who marks on the surface a design with a camel's hair brush, using red lead paints. The glass is then cut to a certain depth on these lines with soft Steel wheels driven by power. Sand or carborundum mixed with water runs from- a hop- per in a steady stream on the cut- ting wheels. This first process is called "roughing." Carborundum has been used only Tecently for glass cutting. It ...

That living alone in tibe high mountains in winter is not neces sarily monotonous this experience, described by Mr. E. A. Mills in "The Spell of the Bockies," suffi- ciently proves. Going into the San Joan mountains during the first week in March to learn something of the laws that govern snowslides. he climbed on skis well to the top of the range. Thousands of tons of enow that covered the precipitous peaks were ready to plunge down end sweep the very spot on which he stood. Almost before he realiz- ed his danger the snow on the up- per steppes suddenly flew up as if from an explosion. A general slide had started. I whirled, pointed my skis down the slope ana went. In less than half a minute a tremendous' snow avalanche, 100 or perhaps 200 feet deep and 500 or 600 feet long, thun- dered over the spot where 1 had rtood.
