Courage of Despair.
Professor McCoy of Melbourne uni
versity in n book about snake experi
ments tells a strange, story Illustrating
tlio' courage of despair. Putting a
mouse Into n box that contained one
of his captive cobras, ho watched the
reptile glide slowly toward it. Tho
mouse shrank terrified Into a comer,
and then when the cobra's tlattened
head was within an Inch of It It tmrnug
Into the air and alighted on the back
or the neck of Its foe. It sat there and
clinched Its sharp little teeth in the
rentllo's Mesh. The colirn mulil nnt-
sbake It off, and it bit deeper and deep
er until the cobra lay dead.
The dirigible balloon Is by no means
a modem Invention, ns many people
seem to think. As a mnttor of fact, as

through the air. Experiments were
made with It by two brothers nnnied
Robert, who made several ascents nnd
attained n speed of three miles an hour,
though tho method of propulsion was
only aerial oars worked by hand.
Nothing further wns attempted until
1S.'2, when Henri GIITard built dirigi
bles which, by melius of a light steam
engliio, he propelled at nearly seven
miles an hour, and since then various
experiments Lave been mnde which ill
