These col lisions which have rounded up the planetary orbits and brought thtf satellites nearer their several planets have also indented the face of the moon and given rise to large craters, which were formerly believed to be volcanic, but are now proved to be due to the Impact of satellites against the lunar surface. .

HOUSE PASSES RECIPROCITY BILL lower BoCy Dechres for Meas ure, 264 to 89. Measure Goes Through in Same Form as Reported From Co.nmittee and Is Practically Identical Yvith Bill Sub mitted at Last Session. Washington. April 22. President Taft's Canadian reciprocity agree ment, supported by all but a handtul of Democrats and opposed by a ma jority of the Republicans, passed the bouse of representatives by a vote of 265 to 89. The measure went through in the form In which it was reported from the committee. The bill, which has President Taffs entire approval, practically is identical with that sub mltted at the last session. The bill seeks to put into effect the formal agreement reached between President Taft and members of the Canadian cabinet for a reduction of tariff rates on many articles and free trade In nianv others across the Cana dian border. Added to it by the Democratic lead ers is a section which "authorizes and requests" President Taft to make further efforts to secure still freer trade relations with Canada, in the form of additional reciprocal relations. Ten Democrats voted against the bill on Its passage, while 197 Demo crats voted for it. As In the case when the bill passed at the preceding session, a majority of the Republicans were found against it, the party vote being fi7 for and 78 opposed. Amendments Voted Down. An amendment offered by Repre sentative Martin (S. D), to put fresh meats on the free list, was defeated overwhelmingly. Only ten minutes' debate was allowed on the amendment. Six days of debate on the bill came to. an end with the speeches of the three leaders in the fight Re resenta tives Underwood (Ala), McCull (Mass.) and Lalzell (Pa.).

The new demands being made by his de partment, he declares, are meeting with compliance by restaurant men In general, but there are still some which, he says, have considerable room for Improvement, in the opinion of the food commissioner there are two kinds of restaurants the very good and the very bad. The chief matters with which the commissioner finds fault are the sinks and refriger ators of eating places and the floors and wal's of their kitchens. Commissioner Jackson says that he has up to date Inspect h about three fourths of the restaurants In Omaha and the same proportion in this city. Five Food Commissioners.

Kill is aoineu h..t Interested In the woman suf frage movement, lie is for it good :r d strong. Hill says; "My wife has as uiui h right to vote as I have. She does half the work and owns half of every thing and should have as much say as 1 have. Of course the old woman would also vote as 1 told her to, lut that makes no difference. It would give me duulde power, and the Iortl knows us poor people have little enough to say now about the way things are run. Then, liesldes, I want the old lady to have all the pleasure she cau get out of this world." That night old Kill was talking the question over with his wife. She said she would like to get a chance to vote the dlstlllerleH off the face of the earth. Kill flared up in a minute. "That's Just the way with the wom en!" yelled Kill. "Give them half a chance and they would ruin every thing. l.ook at the poor peopl around here who can't afford a doctor or to buy medicine. If they can keen a lit tle liquor lu the house it saves many a sick spell. W omen have all they cau Co to look after things around the house without chasing off and voting."

We are more f uulllar with the pic ture of Kenu Krummel in the days of his prosperity than in his decadence. Here Is a pathetic glimpse of the last phase at Caen, when the old man's mind had begun to give way under the accumulated stress of penury and in gratitude: "Sometimes he thought he ought to give a party, so he would arrange the apartment, set out the candles and get tho house attendant to be with lilin. At 8 o'clock this man would open tho door of the room and announce 'the Duchess of Devonshire.' At the sound of this name Krummel would rise from his chair and greet the cold air from the staircase as though It were the beautiful duchess herself, making his most courtly bow ami saying: 'Ah, my dear duchess, how rejoiced 1 am to Nee you so very amiable of you at this short notice! Pray, bury yourself In this armchair! Do you know, It was a gift to me from the Duchess of York, who was a very kind friend of mine; but. poor thing, hIio Is now no more. Then, his eyes filling with tears, he would sink Into bis chair, looking va cantly Into the tire until Lord Alvan ley, Lord Allen, the Duke of Keiiufort or Nome other old friend was ushered lu. At 10 the attendant announced the carriage of each Invisible visitor, and tills ghostly party would conclude." London (iruphlc. Auction Selling In Japan. Sealed bids are used lu auctioning property In Japan. There Is no shout ing. The auctioneer announces to the audience that be has such and such a piece of property for sale and In vites bids. Those who wish to bid write their bids and names on slips of paper. The paper Is folded and placed In a box. When the auctioneer sees no mure bids coming he opens the box and soils out tbe bids. The highest bid takes the property. It Is like a bond sale no one knows what his neighbor bids. If n bidder Is anxious to get the property he will hot put In a small offer. On (he contrary, he will very likely bid all the property is worth. I'or this reason an owner nev er puts up his properly for auction unless ln wants to sell II. New York Sun. A Fmiu Dreer.

He said that be thought it was when he first entered the arena. The moment before, whea he had to drive this great herd of lions iu, was almost as bad, but the first few minutes when the crowd of lion entered were terribly uncertain and. undoubtedly the most dangerous. in the first place, with such a crowd there was the danger of being pushed or knocked down.

During the reign of Emperor Napo leou I. ut a dinner lu Paris the convert satlon turned uMu the emperor and his government. One of the company remarked that he was a great man, but was too fond of war. When the party broke up a gentleman who was present requested to speak iu private to the person who had made that ob servation. "Sir," said he, "I am sorry for It, but I must request you to go with me to the police." "Why?" said the other In the great, est apparent alarm. "I have said noth ing against the emperor but what ery one must acknowledge, that he t too fond of war. There can be no harm lu that." "With that I have nothing to do. You must go with me to tho police.'' The other now began to show the. strongest symptoms of fear. He to treated the police agent lu the moat pathetic language to have compassion. on hliu. The other, however, stood unmoved by all his solicitation, wuea suddenly the man lose from bis knee and burst Into a laugh, to the utter astonishment of the police agent. "You think you have caught me," said he. "You are a spy of the police So am I, and I was put over you to set whether you would do your duty." Imbeoilet' Marvelous Memory, Some Imbeciles are endowed with, excelleut memories and thus are en abled to acquire n great wealth of e perleuce. Hut, the intelligence of th imbecile being defective, the memory ts all lopsided. It works mechanically, without Judgment or select ion. The most Insignificant tiittcs are treasured just like the most important facta. Owing to their marvelous memory many superior Idiots are not recog nized as such In school, but. on the. contrary, are considered to be very gifted pupils. The mistake occurs es pecially when they are good natured and agreeable. A close examination, shows tbat such talented idiots have; learned everything like a phonograpJs and reproduce other people's thoughts, opinions and Judgments. Where such Imbeciles are living In simple, primi tive. Idyllic surroundings their soft spots may pass unnoticed, but In the severe mental strains of life In mod ern great cities they may become th most dangerous elements of society.-, London Globe.
