wlth'n a very few seconds of tho tltno
that tho eruption occurred which :or-
erod a rlllngo and killed several iittn-
dred people. The phenomenon Is unex-
plained except tbnt It was very likely
due to une sympathetic electrical dis-

A Bit of the History of American Steal
Upon a certain summer day In tho

military posts and trading stations
which tho listless and far seeing en-

mouths of the St. Lawrence and the
Mississippi by way of the ftcat lakes

was far bettor suited to tho opon spaco

Braddock waa killed and Colonel
Washington his military coat pierced

nnd military considerations that
prompted that disastrous expedition
wore worthy of a hotter fato; and In-

that In endeavoring to enpturo Fort

AtL HAVE PET AVERSIONS.

Wo are all born with an aversion to
