Staining Glass
The art of colored glass has been
lost and refound guarded and stolen
so many times during the history of
civilization that it seems almost im
possible to say anything new on glass
staining Yet a process has been dis
covered for making the stained glass
used in windows which is a departure
from anything known to the old
The glass first receives its design in
mineral colors and the whole is then
fired in a heat so intense that the col
oring matter and the glass are indis
solubly fused The most attractive fea
ture of this method is that the surface
acquires a peculiar pebbled character
in the heat so that when the glass is
in place the lights arc beautifully soft
and mellow
Swimmers the Prey of Eels
A remarkable story of the seizure
of swimmers by eels comes from New
Zealand A stream in New Zealand
was a favorite bathing place because
the current was swift and strong
Time after time the bather would be
gin to shriek and splash on the sur
face would disappear before help could
reach him and when his body had
been found it had invariably been eat
en by eels The cause of the fatality
remained shrouded in mystery for a
long tim but at length the true cause
was discovered that whilst the swim
mer was almost stationary in the rapid
stream a huge eel would seize him by
the foot or leg and drag him down be
neath the surface
Knew It Was an Idle Threat
Then he cried tragically then
you reject me And for my hated
Yep she answered coldly but col
loquially Yep to both questions
Ha Then I owe the fellow a
grudge I have long owed him 10
And now I will pay both debts at once
and he will fall dead
Lighting his cigarette at the hall gas
jet he departed with a mocking laugh
But the beautiful girl was not alarm
ed She knew he could never carry
out his devilish scheme For she
knew that he never had 10 at once in
his whole life
Arizona County Jail Is Blasted Cut of
a Mountain of Solid Quartz
When the authorities oE Graham
county Arizona decided to look about
for a place in which to confine crimi
nals they found a natural depression
in the side of a hill This was enlarged
into what might be called an artificial
cave divided into four compartments
The cave was excavated parallel to the
Bide of the mountain in which it was
made and daylight admitted by holes
blown out of the wall with explosives
the windows being guarded by a net
work of heavy steel bars The en
trance to the depression was also
closed in the same manner and a
vestibule or porch of masonry built
out from it to provide quarters for the
sheriff and his assistants This vesti
bule is also divided into compart
ments which are connected b7 gales
of steel bars The only way of enter
ing the prison is through the vestibule
of masonry and in order to escape
the inmates would have to cut thoir
way through three sets of bars whih
are an inch in thickness as the win
dows are so high up above the rock
forming the floor of the cells that they
could not reach them It is necessary
however to have a very secure place
