Some American engineers, in eon | struct ing n power-transmission line ! in Inii'j, had several things to eon* j sider and avoid that had never eon i fronted them before, perhaps. The | line, which was nearly a hundred miles in length, was carried on tall poles through the jungle, and in 1*011 strueting it the ravages of white ants and the playful pranks of wild ele phants had to he provided against. That sounds amusing, hut the en gineers found it a serious problem. The ants attacked the first poles set and fairly riddled them; and the elephants reached up with their trunks and tore down the wires. So iron sockets seven foot in height were used to set the poles in. which cir cumvented the ants: and after a careful measurement of the highest reach of an elephant's trunk, the poles were made tall enough to keep the wires out of the way.

She—I hear you are a lover of music. He—Oh, yes; but don’t let that pre vent you from playing. CORNERED LORD KITCHENER. Lord Kitchener a in uses himself by making a wonderful collection of old china. This amiable weakness is becoming a positive passion with the commander-in-chief. Lord Kitehen er still holds his view that matri mony means the end of a soldier’s career. One lady, the wife of an of ficer, is credited with having reduced Lord Kitchener to silence on this point by asking him, “if tlie ollicers of the army of to-day an; not to marry, where will you look for thy offieprs of the army of to-morrow.” PROOFS. “What we want is to keep striving for greater, higher things,” said the idealist. “Well,” answered the architect, “aren’t we? Look at our sky scrapers.” PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
