i places. After several kilometres had flown under me I had outdistanced them, but I still kept on with my legs still bunched up on the front for .3 to avoid their bullets and with my ♦
♦ nerves all in a jangle. In this state I was a danger to myself, and with s ich a powerful engine and at the reckless speed I was still driving thfre was bound to be an accident. At I
J one bad corner I temporarily lost control; in the second there was a terrible crash and sudden oblivion. I was picked up by my own people, temporarily patched up at a local farm- ♦

Action of the Air When an Electric
If a small lump of ice is placed on a
plate and light allowed to fall 011 if
through an ordinary reading glass so
that the burning focus comes within
the ice a very interesting thing may
be seen. The ice will begin to melt 1
1 inside at the point of focus. As ice I
shrinks 011 melting, a sipace will be left j
on account of the melted ice not taking!
| uip so much room as it did when it
j was ice. This space is almost a vacu
| tun and is tilled with water vapor of
! very small pressure.
If the piece of ice be left in the sun
j to melt from the outs-ide in, as it usual- j
Iv does, the walls of the previously i
1 made hole gets thinner and thinner. As J
the pressure of the aitmosiphere is fif
-1 teen pounds to the square inch and tis j
the pressure inside the hole is very
j slight, there will come a time when the j
[ outside air pressure will collaipse the
j ice with am explosive sound.
The sarnie phenomenon is apparent
5 when an eleetric btvlb is broken. Peo-1
pie say it explodes, but as a matter of
fact it is crushed inward 011 all sides
by the atinosipheri,- pressure. liut it
is known by every one that pieces of
glass tly to every corner of the room
when a bulb ex-piodes, and the fact of
its being crushed is not so easily seen.
The only explanation as to why glass
flies everywhere instead of nicely col
j lapsing into a closely packed mass of
cracked glass at the center of the de
funct bulb is_ that as two pieces on
opposite sides are hurled inward to
j ward the center they do not always
exactly strike each other and may miss
| each other altogether.'When they do
| this of course keep on as they
| were going—right into different parts
ot the room. So if a person holds a
j builb painted on one side only, with
[ the painted side away from his face
and with the clear side directly in
j r(>n * h' B fnce and breaks it, he
will find that most of the glass strik
j ing him will be painte>d and th-at in the
j room opposite him will not be. Right
j at his feet should be pieces of both.—
| A. Li. J lodges in Chicago Herald.
Officer—''You say the chauffeur
| sounded his horn just as the machine j
struck the man?"
Officer—"Was the victim instantlv

RUSHING THE WORK ON NEW
MOTION PICiURE THEATRE
Contractors Expect to Have the "Re
gent," of Which Peter Magaro Is
Owner, Ready for Business Early in
the New Year
Jhe contractor and su'li-contractm*
are rushing work on Hie handsome new
motion picture theatre to tie known a*
the Regent, at 410 Market street, with
the expectation of having it completed
and open for high-class screen produc
tions early in the new vear.
t his new house, which is being emot
ed for Peter Magaro; who has had wide
experience as a motion picture exhibitor
in this and other cities, will be as com
fortable as modern methods in theatre
building can make it, HIH| will he most
attractive both from an artistic an 1
decorative point of view.
The Regent in the heart of the down
town business and -hopping district, i
designed not only as a place of amuse
"lent, and recreation for Hftrrirtburg's
rapidly growing horucs of motion pic
ture patrons, but will provide a delight
ful retreat for tired shoppers, who will
lie enabled to find rest in the beauti
ful upholstered chairs that will be in
stalled, as well ns pleasure in witness
ing the elaborate feature film produ -
tions that Mr Magaro is booking for
this theatre. Being almost directly Op
posite to the entrance to the Pennsyl
vania railroad station, it affords an
ideal Hjiot for the traveling public to
stop while waiting for trains.
The Regent will be one of the la g's:
motion picture theatre< in the city and
will have seatin» capaeitv of 1,000
persons. The building 1 s being erivte 1
in strict conformity w : th the new regu
lations of the Pennsylvania Department
of l.i"'bor and Industry and this insure i
the greatest .-.mount ef protection from
Oves, and flr»l-class «auitary conditions.
Modern methods of ventilation are be
ing introduced, and 'in ample number
n? emergency exits constructed; the
aisles (ire wide and the spacing of the
<erits sufficiently large to prevent any
discomfort and overcrowding.
i lei'ia! efforts are beiug made to
make the exterior and the interior of
the theatre pleasing to the eye. Tiie
interior e»>ieeially, said Mir. 'Magaro to
day, will be decorated in a most beau
tiful way. Oil paintings by artists of
ability will form a conspicuous feature
of the mural decorations.
Mr. Magaro says lie is now negotiat
ing with the loading film concerns of
the country with a view of obtaining
the best attractions for his house, lie
promises to provide his patrons witli
picture-plays enacted hy the loading
aetors and actresses now posing Ibefore
the camera, and promises that many of
the most successful stars of the the
atrical world will be introduced on Iho
screen for the entertainment of the pa
trons of the Regent.
The management is at present work
ing out plans for the placing of an
elaborate illuminated electric sign on
the roof of the theatre, which will
make the Regent one of the brightest
spots on brilliantly-lighted Market
street. This sign wiil be 32 feet high,
illustrating a woman diver who will
climb to the top of a ladder and plunge
into water, all depicted in different col
ored electric lights. The whole design
will be most realistic.
Best For Kidneys—Says Doctor
Dr. J. R. T. Neal, Greenville, Sn.
Oar., says that, in his ?.0 years of ex
perience lie has found no preparation
for the kidneys equal to Foley Kidney
Pills. Pain in back and hiips as an indi
cation of kidney trouble—a warning
to build up the weakened kidneys,
make them vigorous, ridding your blood
of acids and poisons. Foley Kidney
Pills will help any ease of kidney ainf
bladder trouble not beyond the reach
