KEAR FOR THEIR TREASURE
Sow the Millions in Gold Stored in
English Banks Are
Officials of the Bank of England
are said to be worried for the
safety of the hoards of wealth
stored in their strong boxes. The
bank station of the new under
ground railway in London is close
to teh vaults of the world's great
est institution of linauce. At a
recent meeting of the bank direc
tors it was suggested that some
brave but wicked person might
eet off a quantity of explosive in
the bank station- , wrecking the
foundations of the stately build
ings above and sending the bars
of bullion and streams of gold ;
leaking out to the station plat
form. The feasibility of thi ?
scheme has been conceded by th"
bank governor. It is figured ,
however , tha ( the "tube , " as the
underground railway is called , is
a little too deep at this point. To
reach the bullion vaults of the
bank the conspirators would havi
to drive a shaft nearly JUO feet ,
and then they would face it mass
of concrete , thick masonry and
steel. At one time the Hank of
England was the object of con
spiracy. From a church to we :
close by the bank was bombarded.
Afterward the authorities had
the church and its threatening
tower destroyed. Officials of the
bank do not like the tunneling go
ing on in the clay beneath their
foundations. The constant pump
ing of water has affected even the
solidity of the clay , and from this
cause one of the wells which is
within the three acres comprised
within the bank's precincts has
Those three acres are valued at
about § 5,000,000 each , and the
treasures within them are guard
ed in fitting fashion. On either
side of the main entrance to the
bank are two small glass houses.
In the one reposes a stately
beadle. In the other are two wide
awake detectives. Other detec
tives are in and out of the rooms ,
but always unobtrusively. At
nigh I the police force is a heavy
one. Every evening a compact
body of men , commanded by a lieu
tenant , and including two ser
geants , two drummers , a bugler
and 30 privates , marches from
Wellington barrack to the bank.
They are in full marching order ,
and before they enter the tech
nical limits of "the city" exercise
that privilege of the guards of fix
ing bayonets. They are on duty
for 12 hours , and but for the recur
ring spells of sentry-go have an
Officials of the bank provide
moderate refreshments for these
guards. In the guard room ,
which is of regulation pattern , are
f the usual shelf and blanket , suf
ficient accommodation for a sol
dier's intermittent dozing when on
duty of this kind. The officer ha&
a suite of rooms at his service
the dining-room of paneled oak , a
neat bedroom and a bathroom ,
There is hidden away in the center
of the bank one of the most pleas
ant gardens in London , where an
after-dinner cigar may be enjoyed
on a summer evening to the full

olis around has died away to in
A King'u New Palace.
King Leopold of Belgium has
taken possession of the new Jap
anese palace in the Royal park at
Laekcji. It is divided into severa
wings. Each of them contains
half a dozen of finely decoratet
drawing-rooms. The furniture
the ornaments , the sculptures , the
paintings , the screens and thereof
roof were executed atTokio by the
best Japanese artists. More
than 2,000 electric lights illumin
ate the palace , where the king in
tends giving some gorgeous recep
tions in honor of the shah of Per

CHARM OF THE OLD SONGS
Old Favorites Are Perennially
Popular with All Classes
Old songs are the best , for they
carry us back to the days that
were radiant with sentiment
and were part of poetry and ro
mance , declares the Kansas Oity
Journal. They stir our natures in
their profoundcst depths , and.
reaching below the callous of our
petrescent hearts , play strange ac
companiments upon the long dia
used strings of our remembrance. .
Who can resist the subtle potency
of those old songs that stop tin1
world in tear-smiles that we may
wave a salutation back through
a rift in the storm of years to the
youth and maiden of the long ago ?
That the old songs are best lian
been shown in the perennial popu
larity of Patti's "Home , Sweet
Ilome , " Emma Abbott's "Annie
Laurie , " Jennie Lind's "Kathleen
Mavournecn , " Christina Neil
son's " 'Way Down Upon the Su
wanee River" and Melba's "Com
in' Through the Rye. " Wedonol
always associate these immortal
songs with the great singers who
have included them in their con
j ' certs , but the singers are often re
membered because of the songs
' themselves. There are few who
I can remember the many acrobatic
arias of the splendid vocal artists
' who have commanded almost fab
, ulous sums for their singing , but
' no one can forget when they yield
ed to popular demand for the old
, songs. Patti or Sembrich or Mel
ba or Calve never had more sin
cere appreciation in the suprem
est moments of her triumphs than
when she descended for the time
from the classics of foreign com
posers and sang the simple love
ballads that sent thrills through
world-weary hearts and caused
withered palms to stir in tremu

Capacity Other Marks.
Those who fail to gain distinc
tion through other means seem to
seek oddity of performance , and
every little while there appears a
challenge from some "champion
egg eater" or other freak , says the
New York ilerald.
The 40-quail-in-iO-days perform
ance has been outdone by a man
who recently ate a whole goose
each day for 30 days , the fowl
weighing from 0 to 11 pounds.
Other records in this line are GO
soft-boiled eggs daily for six days ,
six quarts of beans in 40 minutes ,
smoking 50 cigars in 11 bourn
without once taking a drink.
A Paris couple recently waltzed
without cessation for GJ hours ,
while an English actor danced all
the way from London to Norwich.
The best club-swinging record
has been standing for 17 years ,
when 388 different combinations
were shown in 1GJ minutes , 2,311
revolutions being required.
A score of G-134 points was the

There's a Distinction.
The difference between a politi

same as the difference between a
"sport" and a sportsman. Onica
