Journal. The hills surrounding tho

sehemo of a trlanglo with ono vortox
pointing up stream and north. Tho
area of this trlanglo Is nbout 3000
acres and Its nltltudo four miles and
Ms bona two miles.
Tha upper sides of tho trlanglo rep-
resent high hills rising from COO to

A Terrible Creature.
When Albert Henry Bavago Landor
jf ached St. Petersburg on his way
.from the forbidden land tho fact was
duly chronicled and tho London Press
associations sent cable messagos to
Australia telling of the halrbroadth
escapes and manifold sufferings. The
iMclbourno Times received but a short
noto which was this:
"A Bavago Landor arrived In Bt. Pe-
tersburg today from Tibet after suf-
fering greatly at tho hands or tho nn-
tlves." This was meager enough but tho
pews editor was equal to tho occasion.
Tho following morning among tho
other mattors of nows tho readers
of tha Times found this stnrtllng In-
formation: "A savago landor got Into St. Pe-
tersburg yosterday and tho pcoplo of
tho city were terrified. After consid-
erable difficulty tho beast which camo
from Tibet was captured taken to a
(remote plnco and thore dispatched.

To ono who desires a vory artistic
and attractive house yet ono of slm-

kind of an arrangement there Is noth-

tectural composition. The porch Is nn

ing a foundation course. Above ordi-
nary hovel siding Is used up to the

ing beams aro exposed to view. Tho
bevel siding Is continued again In tho

In this regard
from this ball the stairway goes up

History of Red Cross Seal.
"Charity stamps" first used In
Doston in 1862 for tho soldiers' relief
funds during tho Civil wjir were tha
original forerunners of the Red Cross
Christmas seal which will bo used
this year to bring happiness and cheer
to millions. The Delaware Antl-Tu-berculosls
society In 1907 for the first
time In America made use of a stamp
for the purpose of getMiiK revenue to
fight consumption. It a. hastily or-
ganized campaign of oujy tree weeks
they realized $3000. Tho noxi year
1908 tho American Ited Cross con-
ducted the first national tuberculosis
stamp campaign. From this sale $135-
000 was realized for tho antl-tubercu-louls
movement In 1909 under many
adverse conditions $250000 was rea-
lized from theso stamps. This year
