Persons happening out on the county roads after working hours in the even- ing are taking there lives in their own hands. The way the motor cycle ad- mirers turn the roadways into a race track is fierce to behold. A state law states very emphatically that the 25 mile limit will be kept by all the autos and motor cycles. If a few of these 60 mile gentlemen don't go easy they will either kill themselves or someone else, then as usual the law will look into the matter and more careful watch will be kept.--Snohomish Tribune. The Mercantles won a good game from Index Sunday by the score of 5 to 2.

Until recently 811 earthquake shocks were attributed to volcanic manifesta- tions` But often the earth is agitated In regions where there are no vol- canoes, Hence the belief has arisen that earthquakes may arise lndepend ently of volcanic action. Very often. again, when volcanoes are in erupt.ion there are no earthquakes. Subterranean cave-ins are often the anse of earthquakes. They are thecon- Bequences of the action of subterranean water. When water runs through lime- stone it carves out grottoes and ter- races or galleries` When in its under. ground run it comes in contact with gypsum or rock salt it dissolves these substances, and thus vacuums are form- ed in the depths of the earth. Wheo the water has worn the earth thin the earth gives way. and the subterranean cave-in shakes the regions above it. In well worked coal mines great hollows are made which produce similar re. suits. The layers forming the solid en- velope of the earth are neither homo- geneous nor regularly distributed. Limestone hits granite, and relatively recent rocks overlie ancient masses. Limestone and schist lie together like folded cloth. Layers of the same age are separated by abrupt gaps and breaks by the debris cast out on either side. The crust of the earth has been cam pared to marquetry composed of many parts which must have been Joined. broken and Joined again many times. Its component parts are unstable; their movements are still in progress; they shlfL and possibly their sudden shift ing causes the upper crust to tremble The best evidence in favor of this ex. planatton is that the great earthquakes have devastated countries where the geological layers show traces of cave Ins and sllp In Japan an earthquake raised the ground about twenty-one feet, and the rise ran for a distance at 112 kllometer An earthquake in Alaska occurring in 1899 raised the coast for a long distance Earthquakes are limited to two zones. One embraces Himalaya, Asia Minor. the coasts of the Adriatic, Italy. the Alps, the Pyre- nees, Algeria, Andalusia and southern Portugal; the other zone comprises the two coasts of the Pacific ocean. The majority of earthquakes have been pro- duced in the first zone--Harper's Weekly. Bartholdi's Egotism. An old friend of Mine. Stelnheirs husband was BartholdL the sculptor at the colossal "Liberty Enlightening the World." Although a man of keen In tellect and much originality of thought. Bartholdrs egotism was as colossal as his statue. Once Mine. Steinhell met him at the "'institut." He wore the green unlforW and sword of a mere bet, and his breast glittered with or- ders. 'You see this little thing hers?'" he said. "There are hut three Euro peens who have the right to wear it-- one emperor, one king and myself. I don't attach the slightest lmlmrtance to It." Of the statue in New York harbor he said. "The Americana be Ileve that It is Liberty that illuminates the world, but In reality it is ms gen- Ius`N-Book maD. Scared and Knew it. A soldier under his first fire was charging with the rest at his regiment up the heights of Vicksburg. hut se scared he looked like a ghost. A cm rsde next to him was unafraid and even smiled at the torrents of grape shot that swept the ranks. The cam fade, noticing his friend's plight, turn- ed to him and said with a sneer: "Cowardl" "Coward yourself." retorted the frightened soldier. "Old man. if you were one-tenth as scared as" I am you'd have broken ranks and run long ago." -Kansas City Journal. The One He Caught. One day many years ago the tele- phone In the office of the chief of Do lice rang. Chief Speers qt-'wered The call was from a new "'pofl(man on the Union avenue beat. He said. "A man has been robbed down here. and l've got one of thtm." "Which one have you" asked the chief. The reply came hack. 'JPhe man thai was robbedl"--Argon ut` Solid Ivory. -Yes,,, confessed Mr. Dorklnx, 't serves me right. 1 engaged the man to move our goods and 1 forgot to ask him how much Ie was going to charge me for the Job.
