the farm belonging to Aid. Sinton,
south of the reservoir, consisting of
190 acres, at a price in the neighborhood of $125,000, or a little over $250

Klein farm, west of the Sinton property, has again changed hands and
that McCallum, Mill & Co. arc the
new owners. This property was sold

Tber,��� is ,i magic mirror in Washington, D. C., which is supposed to have
come from the Temple of Aloera, in
the Himalayan mountains, where a
monastery of ascetic monks devoted
tlnir time to the development of psychic powers. It is oblong, a foot and a
half long and a foot wide. It has a
black wooden frame three inches wide,
including a highly polished glass perfectly black, due to the back tyeing
painted with asphaltum.
The mirror was owned by Dr. Leroy
Taylor, a student of the occult, who
got it from a woman who had spent
much of her life in foreign travel.
Just before his death he gave the mirror to Mrs. Gordon, who lives in Tenth
street, between M and N streets. From
her the psychological societies have
been trying to purchase the glass, of-
I fering large wins for it.
A person who wishes to consult the
mirror goes into a room by himself
i and holds the mirror in his lap at an
angle which meets the eye without
causing a reflection on the polished
surface. It is asserted that if the
user possesses any psychic power
there will appear on the glass a filmy
white cloud which will pass across
and disappear in the frame, while
out of the mist will appear faces and'
scenes of happenings to come.
There are many persons who declare
they have seen visions in the mirror���;
prophesies which have come true. The
late Judge Caswell, of California,
while visiting in the home of Dr. Taylor, looked in the mirror and saw the
face of a near relative then living in
Pittsburg. He was struck by the pe-,
culiar way in which the hair was
combed back off the forehead. Two
weeks later Judge Caswell was at the
funeral of this relative and the hair
was combed back in exactly that manner.
Mrs. Gordon, on looking in the mirror recently, saw the picture of a
house on a lawn, near a river, on fire.
The next day a telegram was received,
saying that the home of Dr. Taylor's
son on the Potomac river had been
burned on the day before. Dr. Taylor's
two little grandchildren saw the face
of their dead grandmother In thc mirror.���Philadelphia Telegraph.

carries a coffin in the hot weather
season, "for the use of passengers" if
need be, and in one year long ago
twenty-three European engine drivers
died while working their trains. A
long journey by train in the hot season is particularly exhausting. Carriage windows are kept shut, to exclude the heat, and sometimes not only

Among  the  powers  which  will  un

charge, of telegraph and express companies  mav also he  made  subject  to
the  control  of  the  commission.     Par
fiament seems inclined to exhaust thp(
possibilities   of   public   regulation   before thinking of the serious step which ,
is sometimes urged upon it of nationalizing the railways and telegraph and j

extravagant charges.   If public regulation  falls it will  be time enough  to
resort to something more drastic. That
appears to be the attitude of Parliament on both sides of the House to

ho set to work to "devise" a hen that
could not scratch or wander away

After discouragements he claims to
have, produced a number of hens with
one leg shorter than the other by the
crossing of Plymouth Rocks and bantams.
These hens, he asserts, have a right
leg six inches long and a left leg but
four Inches, They are unable to wander any distance from the coop owing
to their inability to take steps of the
same length. Instead they walk around
