Story Wrre True-
One of tho mos -recently discovered
inexplicable phenomena Is an Immense
eectrcal stpne which crops on above
ground In an almost Inaccessible moun.
tain pass aomo fifty or sixty miles
north of The Needles in Arizona.
The stono Is described as being a
rough jagged outcropping bursting
up through the shale of Its surround-
ings reaching up the mountain side to
tho hc!h of about seven feet when
a .harp projection shelves over again
making a trrgfdd tuunp). peFhanij

narlly thu rock Is of blue metalllo lus-
ter and shows traces of volcanic action
being seamed and ribbed as if melted
by lava. In the heat of the day when
the sun shines squarely upon It the
stone assumes a faded pale-bine hue
At wldch times the Indium deolsro HUl
bo perfectly harmless. A the aun leaves
the gorge however tho atone begins
gradually to dcerw-u lit color and when
night comes and there Is no moon it
glows with all tho brilliancy of a mol-
ten ;n.aaj. This lumlnatloa may be
distinctly seen for a great distant?
vhcn tliero are no Intervening mquu-
tains to obstruct the view.
Now as to the peculiar death-giving
power of the atono. It la said that
nothing great or small can set foot
upon It and lire. So powerful arc the
volts which It gives out at even the
slightest contact that It Is lmposslblo
for even tho largest animals to with-
stand their strength.
Recently a party of hunters ventured
without a mitde Into some of the more
dangerous mountain parses In the njj
country and by chanco found their
way into a narrow gorge having coma
In hot pursuit after a littlo fleet
Umbod mountain goat which they
managed to start from the rocks be-
low. Suddenly when they were all
Seventy or eighty feet away they were
astonished beyond measure to see the
goat fall dead In his tracks although

making ready to climb up the ledge
and securo the littlo creature when an
pld Indian high up on the cliff behind
called on them to stop. So t rarttlp was

monitions that they waited till ho
scrambled down to them and then for
the first time came to light tho story of
tho electrical wonder.
The goat had fallen within tho death
trap tho Indian explained and had
tho hunters followed after him they
too would have shared his fate. There
was ample evidence at band to prove
to the hunters the truth of the old
man's btateracnt for the little gorge

While Judgo Parker has just said
that tho (rial by jury of tho victn-
rto was n back numbor and be-
longed to tho judiciary of fivo cen-
turies ago it appears tho fuprcmo
court thinks tho judgo himself
aomowhat aged in somo of his rul-
ings. In instructing tho jury In a
caso whero'solf defenae was set up
ho said as related by tho Now
Everywhere oxcept within his
own houso tho law requires a man
to' run aWay and do Ins best to es-
capo from an assailant before kill-
ing him. Tho judgo further said
that when assaulted on his own
premises but ouhido ol his house
n man must show his senso of dan-
gor by efforts to escape beforo his
plea that ho killed his nssnilant to
savo himself from great bodily
harm can bo accepted.
This instruction was handed
down from ancient times when
wcapona of assault consisted of
knives bludgeons swoids etc.
which an activo man had some
chance oi escaping. Hut it is not
appiicablo these days of revolvers
and winclicuors whoso bullets no
man can dodgo or outrun and the
United States supremo court has
sent it to tho back letter lumber
The man sentenced to eight
years' imprisonment by tho Ar
kansas judge obtained from tho
supreme court an order fur a new
trial under a now instruction.
This now instruction declares that
wherever rt man may bo if lie has a
right to be there anil if ho has not
himself provoked tho ussaull the
law justifies him in standing his
ground and killing his assailant
provided tho provable circum
stances aro such as to satisly ajury
that ho had reasonable grounds for
believing and acted on the belief
that the killing was necessary to
protect himself from great bodily
Putting any further limitation
on tho right to kill in solf defense
would abolieh it altogether. Ar
kansas is only one ot tho many
states in which a man may have
to decido very hastily whether ho
shall bo tried for killing n fellow
citizen or lot a fellow citizen bo tried
for killing him. In theso ciscs
withhis attention excitedly fixed
on his assailant he lias no timo to
get legal advice or to study tho
necessities of the situation through
tho eyes of bystanders. Court and
jury will do that aftorward and
no is under restraint enough when
ho knows tbat inavinrr hirnsolf
from the peril ol life moment he in-
curs tho further peril of having to
satisly ajury that.the act was just; -fled
