Singular Com. or IntoiicaMan.
A prominent military man. wlio bad
drunk moderately during the war and
had abstained from that time on, while
attending a dinner with his old comrades,
where most of them were intoxicated,
i suddenly became hilarious, made a foolish speech, and settled back In his chair
in a drunken state, nnd was finally taken i
, home quite stupid.
He had not drunk any spirits and hnd
only used coffee and water, and yet he
had all the symptoms of tho others, only
i bis was intoxication from contagion—the
! favoring soil had been prepared long ago
| in the oraiy.
Another case was tbat of a man  who
' had been an inebriate years ago, but had
reformed,   says   Tlie   Popular  Science
i Monthly.    He was recently elected to
ofBco and gavo a dinner to some friends.
Among them was a physician who has
been greatly Interested In these studies.
! He sent mo a long report, the substance
I of which was this:
On the occasion referred to many of
j the company became partially Intoxicated, and tho host, who drank nothing
■ but water, becamo hilarious and finally
| stupid witli them. He was put to bed
! with every sign of Intoxication, but re-
| covered, and next morning had only a
• confused notion of these events.
Tho third case occurred four years ago.
i A reformed man, of twelve years' sobri-
I ety, went on a military excursion with
a drinking company, and, although he
drank nothing but lemonade, became as
much Intoxicated as the others.
This event waa the subject of much
comment and loss to him, socially and
otherwise, although he protested, and
others confirmed his statements, that he
did not take any spirits at this time.—

A Perfect Smoke Consumer.
I have jUBt returned from Springfield,
Mo., where, in the shops of the St. Louis
and San Francisco road, I saw a furnace
In operation that at oncesolved the problem of smoke consumption and the reduction of coal consumption to the minimum. It is bound to revolutionize the
entire system of steam making. It is
the invention of Carney, the master mechanic of the road, has been in operation
for nearly a year, and is a complete success. To put it briefly, by Carney's
process the highest degree of heat is secured by burning with every pound of
coal two pounds of water. In fact, water
gas is made, and I wonder that no one
ever thought of it before. The slack
coal is mixed with water in the proportion of one part to two, and the result
ls the formation of the gas. Every part
of the coal is consumed.
At tho end of twenty-four'hours there
were but three wheelbarrow loads of fine
ashes carried away. Had the furnace
been fed dry there would have been from
eighteen to twenty barrowfuls of debet
and cinders. There was actually no
smoke escaping from the smoke stack,
which was but twelve feet high. I was
struck by the shortness of the stack, and
remarked It to the engineer, who replied:
"Why have it any higher? Nothing goes
through it." At my request the water
was cut off, and tho furnace was fed dry
for two hours, with the result that the
furnace was unablo to make sufficient
steam to run the machinery in the shop.
This water burning furnace is to my
mind the greatest invention of the past
twenty-five years. — Boiler Maker in

A Card In ths Pocket.
Several young married ladies in a certain private boarding house in St. Paul
are just now having oceans of fun at the
expense of one of their sex In Rochester,
N. Y. The husband of one of the ladies
recently purchased a spring overcoat.
With true womanly Instinct his better
half, the first time tho coat was left at
home, proceeded to explore the various
pockets, and hidden in the Uttle side
pocket she found a cordon which ths
name and address of a young lady at
Rochester, N. Y., was written. Of course
the husband was asked to explain, hut
could not, as he had not been aware of
the presence of the card. The idea that
it had been placed there by a young tail-
oress who had handled the coat last at
the factory struck the spouse In a forcible
manner.
His wife was loath to believe such a
story, but followed the advice of her
husband and wrote to the address given,
pretending that she was a young man
who had bought the coat, In the meantime Bhe told the other ladies at thc
house of tho affair and all waited impatiently for on answer. It came, and ol
course it was as the husband suspected.
The writer was willing to continue the
correspondence If the gentleman was
sincere, etc. Another letter is now being
written. I wonder how the girl will feel
when she discovers that her address fel)

Boston, July 19.—The Massachusetts
Club had an outing to-day at Point-of-
Pines. Ex Governor Claflin, A. W.
Beard, Senator Hoar, Congressman Davis
and General Swift were among the speakers. Most of the speeches dwelt upon
the question oi Canadian annexation.
Senator lloar'a views were that Canada must make any overtures that ure
made in that direction. The pear must
ripen on its own stall* before it drops into
our lap. We don't want to force citizenship upon nny. He did not desire tbem,
but believed ultimately that union waB

CABNEOIt TAKES BE\ "F.NGE.
Pittsburg, Pa., July 19.—Carnegie.
Fhipps a& Co. will to-day make the greatest cut in prices ever known in steel and
iron, reducing the selling price of Bteel
plates to $0 per ton, and tbeir other products proportionately. The sliding scale
which tlieir employees signed takes effect
January 1st next, and the rate of wages
will be based on the prices of steel for the
preceding three montliB, which must
result in a big cut in wages. Firms who
feared to fight the Amalgamated Association and signed the Association's scale,
are thus shut out from competition, and
are outspoken in their indignation.
DENIES IT.
Pittsburg, July 19.—Chairman Abbott,
of Carnegie, Phipps A Co., emphatically
denies that his firm haa reduced the
price of steel plateB to $ti a ton, or made
any other cut whatever in the selling
price of their products. He says further,
that reductions are impossible, as ateei
plates have been selling at cost for a long
time.

fund of $3,000,000 belonging to the Indians and held by the Government in
trust, for them, be "distributed among the
Indians to meet their present needs. Tlie
Indians now number about 1400. Secretary Noble told them that he was of opin
ion it would be necessary to have legislative action in order to have any portion
of the principal paid to the Indians.
However, he told the Indians that the
question would be investigated before any
final action was taken. Members of the
commission asked the Secretary! for such
endorsement as would enable them to
borrow money from capitalists pending
the action of Congress. This proposition,
however, did not meet with tlie Secretary's approval.

ing  been  drawn   to  him  through  hiB
drunken talk which appeared to indicate
that he had some know ledge of the last
Whitechapel   murder;   he was allowed!
sufficient time to sober off, after which I
he was closely questioned by the police,
but   hia  answers   did not confirm the j
suspicion that he might be the murderer, j
The first impulse of the officers was to
release him;   they   were,   however,   so
greatly    impressed   with  the  accurate
knowledge the prisoner showed of all the |
details of the circumstances of the entire
aeries of the Whitechapel atrocities lhat
they sought counsel of their superiors «t
the Central Station.   From there orders
were    promptly    sent    to    hold    the

atory could be positively determined, and
he is now detained at the Leman  Street

high places might continue to deride nnd
revile the little band of Reformers who
had sprung up in their kingdom, yet
thev were little by little absorbing the
essence of thc Socialistic Creed, and carrying Socialism into practical politics to
a' degree that Socialists themselves
scarcely dreamed of half a dozen years
ago. the subject ot the recent appointment by the Swiss Government ol a new
official to deal with exiled reformers on
Swiss soil was widely discussed, and tho
Swiss delegates announced tlieir determination to demand of thc Government
that their action be submitted to a popular vote for approval or disapproval.
A  STIR  IN   THE  COMMONS.
London, July 10.—The statement printed in the Roniain newspaper I'Opinione
on Tuesday caused quite u little stir in
the Commons to-day. That sheet makes
the positive assertion that a definite understanding exists between the British
I Government and thnt oi Italy, that In
I case of war between France nnd Italy
I the British and Italian armies shall co
operate for offensive operations, us well
as for defence. The article further says
that when a year ago, a French attack
upon Spezzia was feared, the British
Mediterranean squadron was held in
readiness to assist tlie Italian war-shipa
to defend that port. In the House to-day
Mr. Labouchere read .a translation of
I'Opiuione's article and demanded of the
Government what truth there was in the
statements. Sir James Ferguson, Under
Foreign Secretary, replied that the Government, in the event of war, could be
free to take whatever course seemed most
advisable, but tliat no engagements what-
: ever of the sort referred to in tlie article
read had been entered into.    As to tlie
I alleged arraneement for co-operation with
Italy in the defence of Spezzia, Sir James
could   only say  that  the  Government
; never had' any "reason to anticipate thai
an attack would be attempted by France
upon that port.
Labouchere still persisted and asked
S the Government to state what truth tbere
was in the statements of the paper, but
Sir Jnmes declined to make any further
answers.

on Regal Grants, are bo reasonable that
Gladstone, who is a member of the Committee, expresses delight at ber moderation. The Committee will be ready to

posed of members of all shades of political
opinion, their report is practically unanimous, there being ouly one objector, Mr.

These are not the only objections to this
proposal of Australia. It would be a
gross injustice thai those who have
proved themselves of administrative
worth and capacity In tbe colonial service should be debarreat advancement
merely because Ihey lack the not alto-
gether solid distinction of being candl-
didates for tlie higher honours of a Parliamentary career. Surely men who have
shown themselves competent to direct
the actual government of a colony, ure

Soubretle-s and leading ladies frequently
lose their diamonds and other valuables,
felther by theft or through carelessness, If the
reports given to the public by managers and
press agents aro true, hut it .3 very seldom
tbat an actress loses any money. Tho reason
Is that very few of the actresses of highest
tank cany auy money, as a rule. It is a
well known fact that Adellna Patti rarely
handles any cash excepting a few gold pocket
pieces or charms, and tliat wherever she goes
on a shopping tour her privato secretary follows her with a pocketful of bank notes to
pay the bills.
It is apparently a pet ambition of nearly
every leading actress to open a personal bank
account, but very few of them have any considerable sum of money In their pocketbooks,
even when tho bank balances aro heaviest.
Insignificant purchases aro delivered C. 0.1).
Tho Germans are usually wry methodical in
the matter of settling Uttlo bills. Mme.
Kulich-Lehman genera*ly takes a memorandum of what she has bought, saying that tho
wiU forward the money in tbe course of an
hour or so, and within tho time fixed a messenger makes his appearance and cancels th**
Indebtedness.
DON'T KNOW HOW  A  UUEENBACIC  LOOKS.
Mrs. Langtry has ft business like way of
paying the many small bills she daily incur*
for odds and ends. Sho has hod thousands of
dollars placed to her credit during tho past,
six or eight years, but she has as littlo knowledge of what ft greenback or a national bank
blS looks like as a child. It is said that she
U superstitious about handling money. All
that she pretends to carry i.s a long, ki
purae, filled with silver coins, which are ear
lied moro for ornament than use. All ber
Uttlo bills are attended to by her factotum.
Smithers, It is difficult to dclluo thc exact
office Smithers holds. He plays minor part*
in Mrs, Langtry's company and ho purchases
all the new scenery, but ho likes to be known
as tbe privy chamberlain to her ladyship.
Smithers' task ls not an easy one by auy
means. He has to be out of bed early every
morning to carry out tha orders of his mistress, who generally has planned a full day's
I work for him on the night previous, A long
list of purchases is carefully jotted dowu, and
wben the memorandum hills have been obtained from tho stores at which tho goods
were bought, and tha items ure checked off,
they aro turned over to Smithers. Then
c-omes a tedious succession of visits to tho
places where Mrs. Langtry has called, and
Smithers' geographical knowledge of Manhattan Island Ls so complete that it would insure him a lucrative position ns an expert
guide or courier.
During tho first week of overy mouth a
morning Is set apart for tho auditing of the
more'important accounts, but checks are only
Slven to reputable tradesmen, and then sel-
om for smaller amounts than $?50. It is
disagreeable to Mrs. Langtry to bo asked, as
sho is almost every day, for an indorsement
of a faco powder or something of the sort,
which sho may never use, Sho is determined
uever to sign a check which may bo used as
an advertisement of her patronage. This
whim adds to Smithers' duties, for his list of
calls is necessarily increased, nnd it Is very
nigh nightfall on "pay day" beforo his labors
are ended.
BMITUER8 ON SETTLING DAT,
Itls, however, on the evoof Mrs. Lnugtry's
departure from the city that Smithers is overloaded with business. Then ho is obliged to
hurry around to get all the petty accounts
together. He makes his first appeal to tho
newsdealer around the corner, for, from past
experience, ho knows that tho man is tho
most dilatory individual with whom ho over
had any business transactions. Ho tries to
coax, and then to command- aud generally
endB with an appeal: "Well, my dear fellah,
hurry up your score, llke>a good chappy, for
the madam is going away, you know, und
you can't get your money, you know."
To which his listener will reply, "That's all
right, old man. I'm not afraid; sho's good
for any amount,"
Then Smithers goes lo hurry up tho milk
merchant In the same block who has u littlo
account. Then ho must travel to Harlem, to
hunt up somo market gardener. Then he remembers that the bnuk closes at 3 p. m,, and
be has to stake good timo to get the currency
for a check he has in his pocket, with which
to pay the wages of tho servants. The sun
bas disappeared below the horizon beforo
Bmithers1 work is doue,
Smithers is uot alono iu his calling. Many
other actresses high iu tho profession employ
personal fiscal agents and save themselves the
bother of handling money. In fact, a privy
chamberlain is tho latest fad for stage people
who can afford the luxury. Smithers likes
his position and says he wouldn't exchange
places with any of his comrades.—Alpha In

Scotland's national flower, the thistlo, bears
the proud motto whose truth her foes havo
often proved, Nemo mo impune lacessit (No
one injures mo with impunity). Tradition
tells us the, emblem was chosen lu memory of
Its servico long ago during an invasion of tbe
Danes. They had planned a night attack,
and as they stole in the darkness toward the
Scottish camp ono of them inadvertently
stepped upon a thistle. Losing command of
himself, ho uttered a cry of pain. This
aroused the sleeping Scots, who sprung to
arms and routed tho enemy.
Old legends tell us that St. Patrick, flndlng

to a threefold leaf, and hence ths adoption of
the national emblem:

A "Vender of Paternity."
A peculiar case which ls uow before the
civil tribunal of tl.o Sadne has brought into
prominence a most extraordinary sciou and
specimen of nobility who is a genulno count
by birth and title, but has been by turns a
captain In tbo Imperial guards, a policeman,
u costermonger, a croque mort, or "funeral
mute," and, strangest of all, a "vendor of
paternity." This last profession requires
some explanation. Somo timo ago tho son of
a once famous lady of tho lyric stago, but
whose paternal pareutage is a mystery of tbo
past, fell In lovo with nn attractive young
person of facile manners and customs, who
wanted him to marry her, knowing that his
putative father had settled n considerable
fortune on him. The young man'9 mother,
of course, vehemently objected to tho match,
and, lu order to defeat his maternal parent,
the son had recourse to the count-ofllcer-
policeman-costeriiionger-croqiio mort, who,
for a mere trlllo of fifty francs, consented to
pass as the father of the amorous suitor of
the engaging damsel with tho facile manners.
Ths count wen* to tho mayor's olllco with
two witnesses to sign various documents, In
sjhich ho agreed to sanction the marriage of
his alleged son, but he woo recognized by an
old policeman. The suspicions of tho authorities being aroused, inquiries wero mado and
the trick wasdlscovered.—London Telegraph.

Kane*. Car Brake.
Mr. Ctcorgo 0. Kane, of No. 193 Thurbus
avenue, Providence, R. I., is the patentee ot
an improved brake for railroad cars In whloh
the brake shoo is applied to the track instead
ot to tho wheel of tho car. By this method
the wear upon tho wheels from friction with
the shoe and sliding on the track la avoided.
The entire weight of the loaded car bearing
upon tho brake shoe brings the car and train
to a sudden stop. Two pairs of oppositely arranged brake shoes are pivoted at one end to
a depending frame on each side of the car, the
other end of each shoo being connected with
the lower extremity of a toggle joint The
upper arms of the togglo joints are pivoted to
the car frames, while the join ts are attached to
opposite ends of tho brake beams, so tbat when
the brake beams are made lo approach one
another, tbe angle of the toggle joint ls increased and tho shoe ls lowered onto the track.
Between the brake beams fixed upon an immovable frame is pivoted a br* lie lever, which
Is united with tho brake ba ,n by connecting
rods, so that when the brake lever is turned
by means of the brake rods, that connect the
truhi ot tho lever with tho brake on the platform of the car, the two brake beams will be
mado to approach one another, straightening
tho toggle joints, and tho brakes will bo forthwith applied. The rods connecting tho brake
beam with the brake levers are provided with
springs at their outer onda—Scientlflo American.

Duko do Berry and Napoleon HI, it may be
reserved for Carnot to carve out a career of
usefulness more enduring than any of these.
Tho palace 1. separated from the Champs
Elysoes by a large, well cared for garden,
and but for the memories clustering around
it has nothing especial to commend it to the
tourist. Two sentinels from the Garde Re-
publicaln stand at the main gateway, and but
tor this the English embassy, a little farther
dowu, might very well be taken for the Palais
d'Elysee. The Internal arrangements were
much improved under Napoleon 111, but
even yet tho home of the president is an exceedingly modest affair. There ore scores of
private hotels in the immediate vicinity far
handsomer ta every way. The large drawing room is not as Imposing as the one In the
Whito House, and tho general reception
rooms are not as cheerful and bright as are
those of the presidential mansion in Washington. Still, with an excellent service, a
fine larder, with the best of wine cellars and
a good stable, M. Carnot ekes out a comfortable existence.
Three balls given during tho winter are
paid for by the city of Paris. To each ball
from 4,000 to 0,000 invitations are sent out.
Motley is the only wear. Bacchus and Psyche
aro the Penates that grace the open fireplaces
of this magnificent building. Bacchus at the
last ball dispensed 00,000 glasses of beer, 1,200
quarts champagne, 1,300 quarts Bordeaux,
4,000 sandwiches, besides equally large quantities of turkey, lobster salad, pate de foie
gras, etc., etc. Psycho kept the young people
actively employed until 0 In tho morning, and
tho chief of polico, who snoozoal comfortably
in bis oflice, was uot called upon to preserve
tho peace. Floquet, the Blaine of France, the
premier and chief ot the cabinet, receives a
salary of 100,000 francs per year. In addition
to this he has a large secret fund at his disposal, upon which he can draw whenever he
likes. His drafts upon it nre large and fro-
j quent.
The president of tho senate bus only a small
salary, but iu lieu thereof the government
gives him the Palace ot the Luxembourg to
nvo In. Up to June, 1701, when the Count
of Provenco, afterwards Louis XVni, left

EXPENSES SKIDEB THE REPUBLIC.
Relatively, tho expenses have decreased
very considerably under tho republic. The
civil list alone has been cut down 20,000,000
francs. Individual extravagance was much
moro exaggerated under the empire. There
was a centralization of wealth as well as ot
power. Now both wealth and power are
more evenly distributed. Tbe general expenses ot the country are, ot course, larger,
becauso tho general necessities ore much moro
urgent But the general expenses under the
republic, in view of the general necessities of
a large standing army, an expensive navy,
are much less than were the general expense.
under the empire, when such necessities were
less widespread. The absolute governmental
expenses have been cut down over one-quarter, for the budget is not handicapped with
a long list of poverty stricken and dissipated
aristocracy drawing enormous pensions.
Tako tbe Boulanger-Jacques political campaign as an Instance. The entire expense
was covered by private subscriptions, not*
penny being taken from the publlo purse.
The Republicans In behalf of their candidate,
Jacques, expended 1,000,000 francs, while tht
Boulanger clique paid out somewhat over
twice that amount
Thus nearly $800,000 waa put In general
circulation In Paris, all of which came from
the pockets of Republicans, Royalists and
Imperialists. Tho empire encouraged lavish
display among its representatives; the republic enjoins modesty and economy. Tho
expenses of running the foreign office have
been diminished one-halt. The general expenses of the war department are large, because a standing army of tbe size that today
obtains In France necessitates tbe expenditure of large Amounts. Vb» Individual expenses of the general, staff and line oflice,
are very much lets than under the empire.
Relatively speaking, the budget ls less than
under the empire, and I am not at all sure
that lt ls not actually lets, if we add to the
neceesary outlay the ludlvidual expenses of
the emperor's favorites, whloh were paid tor
out of the war budget—Cor. Boston Globe

Death Bate In England.
Tbe death rate In England for 1888, tht
statistics of which bave recently been published, show, tht remarkable fact that lt was
the lowest average since 1887, when the government flrst undertook tbe keeping ot accurate records. In 1887 tht ratio of deaths
waa 18.8 to the thousand, and this was the
lowest known till that time. But for 1888 a
still better showing Is made, the ratio being but
17.8 to the thousand. What this decrease In
the death rate means can ba better understood from tho fact tbat more than halt a
million persons were alive in England and
Wales at the end of 1888 whose deaths would
have been recorded daring tbe eight years
1881-88 had .the rate ot mortality In those
yean equaled that which prevailed during
tha ten year, 1871-80.—Ban Francisco Chronicle.
yelling.   Our party wero in a box and took
In the situation at a glance.   Tbe soldiers
were furious, and tbo sex of tbe actress would j
not have saved her from violence, had we 1
not jumped upon tho stage to her rescue.
While tho colonel and adjutant were endeov- j
oring to quiet the angry, surging mob witb
speeches, 1 threw a cloak over Miss Cushman,
and hurrying to the stage door, bundled her
Into a waiting hack aud hod her safo In the
Louisville hotel before tho crowd knew she
was out of the theatre.   Of courso tho woman
was pretty badly scared, and after it was all
over realized keenly the peril her foolish act
brought her.   She was profuse ta her thanks '
for tho service rendered her, and promised, as
long as I would listen, that she would repay
the obligation, it mattered not when or where
tho opportunity offered.
"The next morning we were ordered to the
front, and I saw nothing more of Pauline
Cushman, although I often heard sbe had
turned Confederate spy, and tbat she was
serving with the Confederate forces, with
whom we were almost daily battling. After .
the engagement at Stono River, Gen. Roso \
cans, to whose staff 1 had been assigned,!
made headquarters at Winchester, Tenn. We
occupied the Mary riharp college building for
some time, during which I contracted typhoid
fever, and became so 111 that I was removed.
to a boarding house kept by a man by the'
name of Day, wbich was just across the
street from my old quarters. I bad scarcely
begun convalescing wben the army was ordered forward, tho objective point being
Chlcatnauga. I was still too sick to go with
the stall, but if I remained in Winchester th.
danger of being gobbled by Confederate
guerrillas was great, as the woods surrounding tho town were full of them, only awaiting the onward movement of tho Union
troops to sweep down upon the village and
devastate it, but thero was no help for it. In
the opinion of the surgeon, 1 was still toe
weak to be removed In an ambulance, and 11
was arranged that I was to stay with old
man Day and his wife until I was stronger,
wben lt was understood a conveyance would
bo sent for me.
"About 5 o'clock in tho evening, just after
the last detachment had marched post my
window, I arose from my bed, dressed mysell
In a new suit of clothes, wrapped up in tissue
paper what money 1 had In my possession,
something over $1,800 which 1 had received
a few days before the fever attacked me for a
painting I had mado of the charge of th.
First Ohio cavalry at Stone river, and pre
pared to follow tho army, if I could find a
conveyance. The exertion of dressing, however, was too much for me, and I was forced
to again lie dowu upon tho bed. I lay there
resting for, perhaps, on hour, when just about
0 o'clock Mrs. Day came into my room and
told me that Dick McCann's guerrillas—the
same who murdered Gen. McCook—were approaching tho town, and they would, doubtless, search every houso to see If any sick or
wounded 'Yankees' had been left behind.
This was cheering intelligence but I could not
get away, and 1 had ubout ...ado up my mind
to submit to what seemed inevitable—capture
—but I didn't want tho rascals to get my
money so I gave my cash all but 8100 to Mrs
Day, and told her to keep it. It had gotten
on to near 9 o'clock, and while tea was being
prepared I lay down iu my room, the door of
wbich opened In a ball leading to tbe street
In my exhausted condition 1 was not long ta
relapsing Into an unconscious stato, from
which I was suddenly aroused by some one
knocking on my door.
"I approached the door and demanded wby
1 had been disturbed. 'Let me In,' was the
reply, ta a woman's voice. This answer only
confirmed me in the belief that I had been
trapped, and tbat my betrayer was, possibly,
some woman who knew I bad not left tbe
town with the army, but I replied as bravely
us circumstances would permit: '1 know no
woman who has any business with me, so get
away from that door or I will shoot through
It' To this threat the answer came: 'For
God's sake let me ta, and that quickly lam
Paulino Cushman. You did mo a service
once and I have come to repay it' This I
didn't believe, but I was too weak to longer
contend, and I opened the door, through
which immediately came Miss Cushman. 1
recognized her instantly, although she wat
dressed tn male attire and had her beautiful
hair cut as close as tbat of a soldier. 1 grasped
her hands with a flood of questions upou my
lips, but she silenced all by saying: 'We have
no time for talking now; you must come
with me at once.'
"Strange as tt may seem 1 had not a thought
of treachery. I Instinctively felt that she
had come to save me from her friends and tc
place mo Into the hands of my own. 1 tot
tared to Mrs. Day's room, drank a cup of tea,
got my money, all but a $100 bill I compelled
her to keep, and dragged myself to tho street
door, in front of which an old fashioned
carryall wa. standing. With tne help of the
driver Miss Cushmnn assisted me Into the
vehicle, and we were off, whither 1 neither
knew nor cared; 1 was so near dead by this
time that 1 wouldn't have flipped pennies for
tbe chance of living. Miss Cushman hold
my head ta her lap during that long, rough
ride, which consumed the rest of the night,
for just as day was breaking over tbe mountains we entered Deckard's Station. W,
drove at onco to the depot, In front of which
a train for Chattanooga was standing. A
tew hurried words to the official In charge
from Miss Cushman secured ino u seat in the
cars, which were ready to start, nnd a moment
afterward I was kissing the band of 'the
Confederate spy' good-by. She stooped and
whispered: 'I never forget those who have
dared and done for me, 1 care not what uniform they wear,' and In the gray light of the
morning she slipped away and I never saw
her again. I was placed ta a hospital and
soon recovered to rejoin my command, hut
never until the bugles of God sound 'recall'
for me will I forget Pauline Cushman or
cease to love and respect ber. Confederate
spy though sbe was, ta my heart of heart,
lhe shall ever bo a blessed memory."—St

Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con
gratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J. !
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all ovet
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is im-
ported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its rinding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. Thc other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salel
we fancy their sojurn there will be but '
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhoe,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, thc Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as, general Sedative, that have occurred
und. a our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used *.ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly thc best, and
also from a sense ol duty we owe to thc pro*]
fession and the public, as we ire ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERA-**E
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We arc sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm, Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnancellor Sir W.

The lollowiug strong condemnation of
tbe city authorities oi" Seattle in regard
to the recent disastrous burning of that
city, may possibly have an application to
Nanaimo. We suggest that our civic
authorities read it carefully an.l apply it
at home:
Tlie committee appointed l.y the association of tire adjusters tn investigate
water .supply during the fire at Seattle,
on June Uth", and the condition nf the fire
department prior to that time, lin.l that
tlie 12-inch mains tvere totally inadequate for a city »f t lie size nf' Seattle.
That "water from the Sound might have
heen used lo greal advantage had the
authorities provided "drops" in a wharf
sn tliat the suction pipes of the engines
could have reached the water al low tide.
' s it was we have the amazing spectacle
nf a large city, nearly surrounded by
water, with appliances'for using il. vol
yielding unresistingly to ihe flames (or
lack of water which could not lie readied.
"In conclusion, yonr committee would
-late that ihe city authorities arc responsible, not only for an inadequate water
supply, 1ml I'm-an undisciplined an.l iii-

Anj.ong the other titles to distinction
which the Nineteenth century is hertjaf-
ter to enjoy, one will he found in thefact
that iu that age agriculture first began
to he pursued in a systematic, manner
with the aid of scientific research. Manuring -villi the products of the barnyard is a very ancient art, but the resort
to the mine for fertilizers is substantially
an invention of our own times. Chemists first told the farmer the cause of tho
frequent speedy exhaustion in the grain
producing powers at the soil; it has
fallen to tlie geologist to show whence
may he obtained the phosphatic element
which is the most quickly exhausted of
.".11 the elements of plant food in process
of cropping.
Although artificial fertilizers aro practically the invention ..I' the last thirty
years, the industries connected with
their manufacture now demand a capital

product of ahout that amount, and tho
volume of the industries is increasing
more rapidly, perhaps, than any other
art which pertains to mining. The use
of artificial fertilizers grow out of tho

guano beds as a source of fertilizers. Of ;
such importance did they esteem I lie
