Lighting ths pyramids of Egypt with
Siretrii ity and the installation of a 25,000
horsepower plant, to cost some $400,000,
is a plan now under consideration by th*
British government.
The Vatican Is soon to be lighted with
electric lights, ths plant being set up in
tho former linrritoks of the French guards.
As there are 11,000 rooms the plant will be
quite au extensive one.
A professional school of electricity Is to
be established at St. Germain, near Paris,
to be called the Ampere institute. The
school is intended to furnish lnborers and
foremen with an electrical education, and

Six Varieties ef Asbestos.
Thero  is  probably no product of inorganic, nature uhout which there is .n much
popular ln.Y.U'-y  and    misconception  at
aslie.t-.is.  It  is vaguely  understood  that
the  principal claim  of  this remarkable
produot  is that it cannot bc consumed by
lire.   Thero are, however, no less thnn six
varieties of  asbestus, euch  of which po��
sesses  qualities  peculiar to  itself.    They
���nay  ho (tin. silled as followa: Amant.hus,
In  which  the  fibers are  so exceedingly
long, flexible and elastic thut they may bs
woven into cloth; common usbestus, with
me nimro _...,..h less flexible���it is heavier
thun the first variety, �� Hull  croon in color, sometimes pearly In luster and oily to
tlie touch; mountain oork, light enough
to float on water; mountain leather, alse  I
very light, but thinner and more floxlbll  I
tban tho last; mountain paper or blue aa   |
bestus; mountain wood, which in external {
appearance   resembles dry wood.    As a ,
matter of fact, nearly all varieties havs I
more or less ths appearance of fossilized
wood.    Asbestus has been found in nearly j
all parts of the globe.���Kew York Ledger.  !

the period of years it is in service, you will see that "J-M" is
cheat>er to use than any other prepared roofing. Being made of
Asbestos, an lndcetructible mineral, it is permanently durable
and as it does not require any coating or painting, its first cost ts
the only cost.   Easily applied by anyone.

When morning breaks and the fairies aaa

Ihe moorland shines with gllst'ning llnea
Like havps new strung with gold aud slung
On tlie pink and purple heather

And wild and free is tho harmony
Through the pink ami purple heather

But none the loss tn it sweet to hear).

A physician of wldo experience snys
that for 45 yeara he hns scnrooly bad a

exemption from suffering ho attributes to
an unvarying practice of taking a plate of

theory that nine-tenths of the intestinal

"There is money iu sumggllng." snid
the retired dealer in precious stones ns
be leaned back, "but it is dangerous to
carry on tbe business, as possible suspects are carefully watched and, if necessary, traced till thoy are flnnlly
caught. However, I know oue mnn
who pursued tbe trade of diamond
smuggling for ilfteen years and was
able to retire to respectability. He
was buyer for one of the large business
houses in New York, and bis business
sent bim to Europe two, three and
sometimes four times a year. Every
time he returned he bud with bim from
$10,000 to $20,000 worth of gems which
be did not declare.
"His trick was perfect slmplleiiy
combined with ingenious boldness. His
hair was scanty, and at the top of ht..
bead be bad a most delightful little
bald spot. Customs ollicers as tbey
came ami went all knew hlm, nnd us
Uiey knew him he bad a most pronounced wen wliere bis other acquaintances saw a bald spot. That wen wns

and it contained two or three bi^ stones
that would have beeu a iiud for th.

of tbem. He never vailed the trick,
and he never lost. Each trip was worth
a couple of nur.Uiml dollars to mm una
n great many hundred more to those
who employed liim. Now, Hint man
considered himself strictly honest. He
would not steal a cent from nn individual, yet lie schemed and plotted to

the period of years it is in service, you will see that "J-M" ia

and as it does not require any coating or painting, its first cost Is
the only cost.   Easily applied by anyone.
