According to a Belgrade correspondent, the publication of the story of  Queen Natalie's intrigue to revenge  herself on Serviu, followed by the sudden withdrawal by the pobtal authorities of ull the new coronation stamps,  Is the sole topic of conversation  throughout the Balkan states.  In order to celebrate King Petei'a  corona tion the Servian government decided lo issue' a series of large postal  labels bearing tbe new monarch's portrait beside that of his ancestor Kara-  georgc.  The engraving -was unfortunately intrusted to a Frenchman named Mou-  chon, a person, it is alleged, very  friendly toward Queen Nnlalie, and he  very skillfully introduced into the design for the new postage clamps the  ghastly features of tlie queen's murdered son, King Alexander.  A vast number of the coronation  stamps were issued to the public before  it. became known to the authorities  that the new issue was regarded by  many of King rotor's superstitious  subjects as a "heavenly sign", that the  new monarch's reign was to be "brief  and bloody."  If one of the new stamps be held upside down the unmistakable death  mask-of King Alexander may be seen,  formed by a_ portion of King Peter's  head'with that of his ancestor, Kai-a-  george. The nostrils of the two heads  together form the eyes of the murdered monarch, the mustaches make the  eyebrows, and the eyebrow aiM eye of  Karageorge form King Alexander's  nose and,mouth."-: ** ' ���������;*  The "death inask stamps/' as the new  issue .has become known, have undoubtedly made a great Impression iu  tbe army, and among, the uneducated'  classps.  "I learn on the be3t authority," concludes the correspondent, "that the  government is making desperate elforts<  to buy up as many of "the dangerous*  labels as possible and is even sending  agents abroad to France, Germany  and England-to secure them at any cost  from .speculators and foreignt stump  dealers."���������London News.

Whether the internal heat of the  earth was in the first place due to the  presence of radio active matter or to  other causes is a, very debatable question, for the answer involves considerations of the origin of the earth as a  i member of the solar system. Whatever  view may be taken of this problem,  there can be no doubt that the discovery of'the distribution of radio active  matter in the earth throws grave doubt  on the validity of those calculations of  the age of tlie earth which are based  ou the assumption that it is a simple'  cooling body and tends to show that  the present internal heat will be maintained for a much longer interva'l than  was at first supposed.  On this theory of the maintenance of  the internal, heat no definite limit can  be set for the age of the earth, but  some deductions can.be made of the  probable variation of the interna! heat  within time.���������Professor Ernest Rutherford in Harper's Magazine.
