N THE Away la a 110NEY-moo- n, aa in every thing el e, the times have greatly changed, says the New York Recorder. Two young persons who are to be married this month have planned to spend their honeymoon in Siberia. They expect to stay at least a year, and the bridegroom, who is something of a writer, contemplates gathering materials (or a book upon the social and political conditions of the country before they re- turn. Another couple will journey slowly around the world, spending a season at Nice, a winter in Egypt, a summer among the Norway fiords, several months in the orient and Australasia and a leisurely return homeward across our own continent Last spring one happy pair took a trip through Alaska and returned home with innumerable souvenirs and native trinkets. Another bride and groom spent six months upon a yacht cruising about the Pacific ocean, and still another pair took their introductory journey into the realms of matrimony by means of a carriage drive throughout their native state. An athletic couple of New Haven, Conn., are reported as having hiked It through three states, and one notoriety-seekin- g pair even rode to church and back on their wheels Instead of using the conventional coach and wblte horses. Many men and women have been united in the bonds of matrimony while at a considerable altitude from the ground in balloons, but it remained for two natives of the Wolverine state to plan a honeymoon in one o these ships of the air. Owing, however, to the extreme nervousness of the bride, an early descent was made and the distance actually traversed was but trifling. Down in Alabama, quite near the city, where the songBter dreamt he saw a pretty yaller gal, an impecunious pair decided on a novel wedding trip. They traversed a considerable distance, the groom trundling an old wheelbarrow, which contained their luggage, and, upon occasion, even the bride herself. Another enterprising couple of our own city, who, for purposes of economy, combined with honeymonical bliBs, engaged, respectively, as steward and stewardess on a West Indian passenger steamer, enjoyed their trip so much that they have retained their positions indefinitely. Along our northern frontier and across the line in Canada, honeymoon and in trips on skates, snow-shoand toboggans have sleighs, become of common occurrence, and numerous couples have occupied a hunter's log cabin in the backwoods during the joyous season. It is Interesting to note that a couple swam the whole distance of Long Island Sound as their wedding journey. When, however. It is further explained they were accompanied by a naphtha launch and were both professional swimmers, the mystery is not so mysterious. Another experience that might almost seem to rival the foregoing in originality was the case of the Baltimore ft Ohio engineer who received orders to take his locomotive out within a few minutes after the ceremony was performed, and, with the aid of his fireman, smuggled his bride into the cab and took her to th end of his run. But probably the moat strikingly original form of the wedding journey that has ever been rxcomplished was the one that took place last fall, the happy pair being married by telealphone. The reasons for this were an economical nature, most wholly of the bride's dwelling place being in a New England city, while the groom was engaged in business at Los Angeles, Cal. After the ceremony the twain made their respective way to the nearest railway station, where they took train at Council and met, as the groom Ittwa, accompanying Bluffs, newly-wedd- ed es ice-boa- ts d, NO. 2(5.

It Is true that an overplus of photographic or optical apparatus might thus result, but then these articles are always more or less desirable, even in quantities, and no criticism Is engendered oy their absence from a prominent position on the buffet or dining table. Some few years ago, when the happy pair were accustomed to rumble away In their coach to take train or boat for a few weeks jaunt to some near-b- y resort, the minds of the wedding guests were filled with naught but pleasure and anticipation of the joys in store for the departing newly wedded. But when we begin to throw shoes and rice after couples who have their faces turned toward such romantic parts of the world as Siberia, et al.. it becomes a much more serious matter, and many a heartfelt prayer for the voyagers safe return accompanies the effusive congratulations over the happy ' event GIRLS LIFE.

At evening, when the fierce sun went down behind the green banian tree that nearly hid Mount Pulei, the khateeb would sound the call to prayer on a hollow log that hung up before tbe mosque, says the Overland Monthly. Then Busuk and her playmates would fall on their faces, while the holy man sung in a soft, monotonous voice the promises of the koran, the men of the campong answering. ed Allah il Allah, he would sing, and Mohammed is his prophet, they AiiuMliiJbWfr. ' Every night Busuk would lie down on a mat on the floor of the house with i little wooden pillow under her neck and when she dared she would peep down through the open spaces in the bamboo floor Into the darkness beneath. Once she heard a low growl and a great dark form stood right below her. She could see its tail lashing its sides with short, whiplike movements. Then all the dogs In the campong began to bark and the men rushed down their ladders scream(A tiger! A ing Harimau! Harimau! tiger!) The next morning she found that her pet dog Fatima, named after herself, had been killed by one stroke of the great beast's paw. Once a monster python swung from a cocoanut tree through the window of her home and wound itself round and round the post of her mother's loom. It took a dozen men to tie a rope to the serpents tail and puli It out. So the days were passed g In the little campong under the cocoanuts and the lithe Malayan girl grew up like her companions, free and wild, with little thought beyond the morrow. That some day she was to be married she knew, for since her first birthday she had been engaged to Mamat, the son of her father's friend, the pungnuio of Bander Bahru. gently-swayin- Whm ruhmlK SI ran. Let us flrfct see what we mean by the term cathode. If we Bhould break Ihs tiny filament of an Edison Incandescent lamp at the middle of the glowing loop the light would go out. If, now, we connect the two ends of the broken filament to the poles of a battery of a great many thousand voltaic cells, such as ape commonly used to ring house bells, we should be able to light the lamp again, not by incandescence, but by a feeble glow which pervades the whole bulb. The ends of the broken filament would glow and tbe glow at one end o' the filament would be different la ap pearance from that of the other. The broken filament, by means of which the electrical energy enters the bulb, ii called the anode and the filament by means of which, itt ordinary language, it leaves the bulb is called the cathode. Now, the great peculiarity of the cathode rays is this -- they scan to be independent of the posiiio'k or the anode and they slmini out from the cathode like (lie beam of a souch light, slrik-irthe waist of the inclosing vessel.

Both Dr. Woodruff and Lieut. Harris found that they were less fatigued from tbe long walks they took when they ate nothing but the kola than when they ate full rations of or- dinary food. An experiment with the kola nut was made In this city and the result was identical with that of the Fort Sheridan officers. A number of the army officers of Fort Snelling were anxious to see the result of an experiment, and the test was arranged. Corporal R. P. Wyatt and Private M. C. Olson, both of Company F, started from the Ryan Hotel at 8:40 to walk to the West Hotel at Minneapolis and return to the Ryan at once. Private Olson was not allowed to eat breakfast, but he was given five little reddish nuts about the size and shape of k d hickory nut. which he was told to eat slowly on the way. Further than this he was not allowed to eat any food while making the trip. Corporal Wyatt was allowed to eat a good, hearty breakfast and told he could eat and drink what he wished on the way. He was requested to regulate his diet according to the soldier's bill of fare when the larder In the commissarys tent is. well stocked. At 3:50 the two men arrived at the Ryan Hotel from their journey to Minneapolis. In giving their accounts of the trip, which comprised a walk of about twenty-fiv- e miles in the hot sun, they plainly showed that the kola nut had proved the satisfactory Wyait Tiad eaten and drank freely as he felt inclined to during the day, and came in almost overcome by heat and thoroughly tired and stiff from the long walk. Private Olson, who but recently arose from a bed of sickness and has not fully regained his strength, was much tbe fresher of the two and had suffered little from the heat. He said that he ate two of the nuts on the way to Minneapolis and two on the way back, and that he sat and rested while his companion ate and drank. He said that he never felt better than when he returned from the long tramp, and that he thought that the walk had done hltc good.

In time tbe coming of the earthquake may be foreseen and announced, as changes in the weather now are, but so far its advent is unheralded, and in spite of an immense amount of study and investigation not much is actually known about it. The first really scientific inquiry into the subject dates from the great catastrophe at Naples, in 1857. and was instituted by H. R. Mallet, who laid down the outlines of a system for the investigation of earthquakes which has formed' the basis of ail subsequent work in that direction. At the same time Palmier! established his ouservatory on the slopps of Vesuvius, and demonstrated the necessity of special instruments for measuring the movements of the soil. Since then, says the New York Tribune, every earthquake of importance has be carefully investigated, and the vary! phenomena of all of them recorded, continuous improvement in the. ins, ments employed in the work has made, and by means of the new eel graph established at the Collgfc mano it was possible to observe Rome not only the earthquakes which took place in Greece, India and Tur kestan, but also to see on March 22 last three distinct waves coming from three distinct shucks in Japan. They had traveled over a space equaling a quarter of the earth's circumference at a ipecd of about 2.7.10 j ards a second, and were hardly perceptible in Italy, 'hough they revealed in the Jcliralc tracing of thn instrument. In Ihe present year a new pendulum has been devised and applied by Mr. Horae Darwin of the most refined and precise iccurney of registration. It can record and measure a tremor of the earth wholly imperceptible to the senses, and may convey to the cognition of science testimony of a good many earthquakes so delicate that hcv obtain no popular recognition.
