SHAH AFRAID IN THE DARK.
When the shah called upon M.
Curie in Pari recently to see the
wonder of r1ium he tliil not like
the iiU' of dark room. Ilia grand
vuier suggested drawing the cur
tains of tli room, but M. Curie per
sisted that blackness was n..vsi-arr.
ThereuMtn the shah called M. l'aol'i,
the French detective protector of
royalties who assured hia majesty
that there ni no danger. So the
Jurty descended to the underground
amrluient in the hotel known as
the safe room. SI. Curie began ei-
poutiding the pmjerties of radium
and then gave a signal for the elce
trie light to be twitched oil. Im
mediately a jmnic seised the shah's
uit, says the Chronicle's rorre
rjionileiit, and all cried out, in Per
sian and French: "Light! Light!
Turn on the light!" The electrici
ty was twitched on again, and the
disappointed savaut wait forced to
thow liia radium in a lighted room.
