ALRCIT AND DARING. A Dramatic Cplcode of the Indian Mu tiny at Lahore. At Lahore, on tlie night of May 18, three dave before the date fixed for the mutiny, a military ball was to be held. This arrangement was not changed lest the suspicions of the sepoys should be aroused, and dancing was kept up till 8 o'clock in the morning. Then the ollicers at gray dawn hurried to the parade ground, where, by instructions is sued the day before, the whole bri gade was assembled, nominally to hear some general orders read. These were read in the usual fashion at the head of each regiment. Then some brigade maneuvers followed, and these were so adroitly arranged that at their close the native regi ments found themselves in quarter distance column, with five compa nies of a British regiment, the Eighty-first, opposite them in line, the guns being still in the rear of the Eighty-first. In a single sentence, brief and | stern, the order was giaen for the native regiments to pile arms. The grenadiers of the Sixteenth, to whom the order was first addressed, hesitated. The men began to han dle their arms. For one breathless i moment it was doubtful whether they would obey or fight. But si multaneously with the words "Ihle arms!" the Eighty-first had fallen back coolly and swiftly between the guns, and the sepoys, almost at a breath, found themselves covered by a battery of 12 pieces loaded with grape, the artillerymen standing in position with burning port fires, while along the line of the Eighty first liehind ran the stern order, "Load!" and already the click of the ramrods in the muskets was | Iwwd. : , The nerve of the sepoys failed. | Suddenly they piled amis, and COO , English, by adroitness and daring, disarmed 2,500 sepoys without a [ shot. What five minutes liefore had been a menace to the British power was made harmless.?Cornhill -Mag azine. Why Snow Is White. The pure white luster of the snow is due to the fact that all the ele mentary colors of light are blended together in the radiance that is thrown off from the surface of the crystals. It is quite possible to ex amine the individual snow crystals in such a way as to detect these sev eral colors before they are mingled together to constitute the compound impression of whiteness upon the eve. The snow is then clothed with all the varied hues of the rainbow. The soft whiteness of the snow is also in some degree referable to the large quantities of air which is en tangled amid the frozen particles. Snow is composed of a greut num ber of minute crystals. More than a thousand quite distinct forms of 6now crystals have been enumerated by various observers. These minute crystals and prisms reflect all the compound rays of which white light consists. Sheets of. snow on the ground are known to reflect beauti- | ful pink and blue tints under certain angles of sunshine and to fling back so much light as to be painful to the eyes by day and to guide the travel er, in the absence of moonshine, by night. She Needed Them. ' An American woman tells an I amusing story against herself, re sulting from her blissful ignorance of any language but her own. She was one of three American girls traveling in Italy. They had visited Europe with the laudable determi nation to see famous people as well as famous places, and in pursuance of this plan when in Milan they r.flitl n visit tn Ssitrnnr Vonli Vprrli received his unexpected visitors gra ciously, but as they were taking leave he raised his voice slightly, saving, "Roberto!" She, imagining this must be the Italian equivalent for "farewell," raised her voice also and, looking him full in the face, exclaimed in her turn, "Roberto!" then turned to discover, to her dire confusion, that Signor Verdi had i merely been calling his manservant to show them the door. After that she took lessons in Italian. Dimensions of the Coliseum. The coliseum built by Titus, A. D. 80. is in shape an ellipse. Its ex ternal circumference is 57G yards, its long diameter V05 yards and its short diameter 170 yarns. The arena h 0.3 by 08 yards, and the height of the gigantic mass is 15G feet. Four rforie- remain, the seats licing in tiers, and n calculation, made from < rea:l masurementl, shows that there v.ere seats for 81,000 specta tors, while 03.000 more could have found standing room, thus giving the place a capacity of l."0,000. Only about one-third of the original structure remains, for the great building served Rome for ages as a quarry, but even in its ruins it is , one of the most stupendous monu ments of antiquity. Its foundation would, in length, cover two city blocks, while ?? width is equal to one and a half. I SPILONA SCRIPS. Well, smce our last scrips from Spilona. there has lieen many changes. We farmers wanted to nee it ruin?now we want to see it stop awhile, until we can plow up a little more crab, but the farmers around Spilona don't ] raise much crab and the seed is not so plentiful as they are in some sections. 1 was riding out last Sunday and passed through a cotton farm which looked like cotton and crab had been racing and crab had won the race consider ably. That farmer will complain nex t fall of his fertilizer not being any good?are we all lazy? We have had several heavy thunder storms lately and very hard rains, the heaviest last Sat urday night. The lightning struck an elm tree* in Mr. It. L I.nesiter's yard near the kitchen door and gave thefamily a severe shocking, also struck a clothes line tearing it to pieces and burst ing up things generally at both ends; also a wire fence around his poultry yard and garden and killed an old turkey gobbler,nine young turkeys and seven chick ens, at the furtherend of the wire fence?better be careful how you get about a wirefencein a thunder storm. ?Mr. J.

Raleigh News-Observer: The torpedo boat Bagley, on its trial trip last Thursday, made the record for 28-knot boats, by making as high as 510 knots an hour and an average of over 2b knots. It was a coincidence, but it is a fact that this trial trip was made on the anniversary of the death of the gallant young offi cer for whom it was named. Just exactly three years ago on the Kith of May, \Vorth Bagley was killed at Cardenas by a Spanish shell fired upon the torpedo boat Winslow. | Does tutT] | Baby Thrive i | If not, something must be \ ? wrong with its food.
