PRIZE FIGHTERS AND HEELERS.
PlTTSBHRG, Pa., June 30. A prize fight
with hard'gloves for 8200 n side and the
gate receipts took place near Shousetown,
Pa., twenty-five- miles west of this city at
daybreak this morning. The contestants
were Elmer Grant of Beaver Falls, and
Frederick Wise of Xew Brighton, both
men of considerable pugilistic fame. One
Tound was fought lasting 45 seconds, dur
ing which Grant knocked "Wise down seven
times, the last time knocking him insensi
ble. A younger brother of "Wise then
jumped into the ring and with
an axe dealt Grant a blow on the
back with the blunt end. The blow was
evidently aimed at the head but fortun
ately fell wide of tbe mark. Before he
could bo caught young Wise had jumped
over the ropes again and with a revolver
in one hand and an axe in the other he ran
down the hill defying anyone to follow
him. Grant was stunned for a moment by
tile blow but was not seriously hurt. The
referee decided the fight a draw, much to
the dissatisfaction of the Grant adherents,
and they threatened to mob him but he
got away safely and the crowd soon dis
persed. The aifair has been reported to
the police and arrests may follow.

Tho South of Soaator BecS, of Ken
tucky, Sasests letter on tho Success
of the Alton In tho Public Xifo ofxrou
"WASimrGTOH, May 19. The death of Sen
ator Beck removes from congress ita most
distinguished foreign born member. A
striking commentary on tho character of
our population and the equality of our
citizens before the law and in the pursuit
of success and fame is the fact that no fewer
than twonty-five of the men elected to the
present congress were born on foreign soil.
The presence of theao men in the halls of
legislation shows tiu-t in America there is
no proscription of tho alien, and apparently
no prejudice against him. The number of
foreign born congressmen is by no means
a fair criterion of tho generosity and confi
dence extended by tho peopb to foreigners
who have come here to find homes, for at
least two score other members of the pres
ent congress, though, bom in America, aro
the sons of foreign born parents. Among
these aliens who have become not only citi
zens but law givers in their adopted land
are several who havo rison to great prom
inence. The late Senator Beck was one of
the ablest and most influential members of
the Americauhouso of lords, though he had
started out from his humble home in Scot
land with a name to make and an educa
tion to acquire. Here he found tho oppor
tunity, the warm welcome which stimulate
industry and foster genius, and he rose to
a place which would have been simply im
possible in hi3 native land had ho had thrice
the genius which wss his. Gen. Henderson ,
of Iowa, also a native of Scotland, is one of
the leading men of tha house of representa
tives, and last fall was a prominent candi
date for the great office of speaker. Judge
Crisp, of Georgia, a native of England, will
be a formidable candidate for speaker of
the next houso incase his party shall obtain
a majority therein. - '
Senator Sherman, of Ohio, sat in his li
brary one recent evening talking of the
proposed law to regulato immigration.
"One oan never tell just how to apply such
a law as this," said he; "wo never 'know
when we are-doing not only private injus
tice but public wrong in keeping out of tho
country men who maybecome useful and
prominent. I remember some years ago in
my town of Mansfield, 0., we were much
disturbed by the appearance in our midst
of a blacksmith from Ecglund who had a
largo family of small children and no other
visible assets excepting a pair of strong
arms. At first there was a fear that ho
might become a public charge, and I recol
lect his case coming up for discussion in
tho town board. Somo one suggested that
the blacksmith bo sent on to another town,
but wiser counael prevailed, and tho poor
family was permitted to remain. The
blacksmith went to work, and managed
somehow to got through the winter. Now
ono of his sons is president of a bank in
the west, another is at the head of a largo
railway corporation, a third is a member
of tho present congress, and the old man
himself died in very comfortablo circum
stances." Senator Sherman declined to give tho
name of the member of congress who
sprung from this unpromising family, but
it will bo found in tho list of statesmen
contributed to the present congress by for

Certainly no other country in tho world
can show such a roster of adopted citizens
among her law makers. Nearly all of
these men, moreover, have risen to their
present honorable position from poverty
and humbleness. Most of them wero the
sons of poor immigrant who camo to this
country hoping to find a better share of
the good things of life than had fallen to
their lot amid tho rigid conditions of tho
Old World, lveavmg London fox tho freo
soil of America tho father of Senator Pasco,
of Florida, settled in Massachusetta. He
was n mechanic, able to support his- fam
ily, but not to gratify the ambition of his
son for a course in Harvard. Nevertheless
that nmbrtiou was gratified, for the young
man taught school during tho winter
months and thus paid his own way
through college. It was as a school teacher
that ho went to Florida, and there he
rapidly rose in public esteem till they
made a senator of him.
Senator McMillan, of Michigan, is a
splendid type of tho sort of men who havo
been drifting in great numbers from Can
ada into the United States. All along the
border Canadian blood has entered the
current of social, commercial and political
life in this country, and has in numberless
places shown that it is virile and whole
some. In Chicago, for instance, hundreds
of prominent business and professional
men are British-Americans, snd there is
no cla&s in that city which txercises great
er influence for g'xxi government and sets
a better example of good chips' '-ip. Sen
ator McMillan was a poor bo, , a native of
Hamilten, Ont., where in cir.. ....e ho was
a clerk in a hard-.raro store. li&viag be
come one of tho richest men in Michigan,
and one of those men who hare on their
hands the management of two or three
dozen large enterprises, he still finds time
to think of tne oung men who are grow
ing up about him. No rich man in this
country has done more in the way of help
ing young men to start in business than
Senator McMillan. In Detroit, it is said,
one may find fifty prosperous firms that
were set on their feet by tne jrenarwity of
the senator. If Mr. McMillan thinks a
young man has stuff in him of tha right
sort, if ho believes In his honesty, energy
nnd capacity, bo is very likely to help him
out. But he cannot be fooled. He is a
close student of human nature, and seems
to have an marring induces as to charac
ter. Senator Jones, of Nevada, was a poor
English boy, a native of Herefordshire.
His'parents brought him to this country
when he was but a yc&r Oid, and h and the
other ohiHraa were abou; all they did have
in the lino of vjsieis ase. They settled
on a farm in northern Ohio, and the boy
hod a chance to go to the district school a
few -rrintecs before the California mining
craze of 148 broke out. Though young
Jon?s was only W years old be caught the
fever and waat to the coast, where he
worked in the mines with shovel and pick,
droe mules and did anything that came to
kind, eventually makinz aforuno gf $6j-
000,000. Then he meet co-emuxxm-ma-rx'
ample-set "by other rich men of tho coast snd
become a cat railway mscnato, and soon
he found kiox:2lf worth but c law thousand
instead of a few millions cf dollars. Now
he has acquired another largo fortune, and
probably is not too old to make another
should ho be so unfortunate es to lose this
one. Senator Jones is ona of the wittiest
and happiest men in congress, very popu
lar, and the bright particular champion, of
One of Senator Jones' peculiarities is his
fondness for the food which ha ased to eat
as a miner. Nothing makes him happier
than a chance to open up a bos of sardines
or herrings, and to maka flapjacks befora
an open fir . Broiled Spanish maokerel is
to him the ambrosia of life, providing ho
can broil it himself just as hedidin the old
days. He is also a famous maker of salads.
The cooks at the Capitol restaurant say
Jones would bo a great nuisance if it were,
not for his generous tips. Three or four
times a week he goes dom into the kitchen
and shows them how to do thing3, and
once in a while prepares a lunch with his
own hands to which two or three of his
senatorial cronies aro invited. An invita
tion to one of Jones' lunches is highly
prized by men who have homely tastes, for
it means a rare treat of bacon and eggs,
herrings, sardines, mackerel and canned
fruits and vegetables. After the last flap
jack has been turned and tho last can
opened it is likely a few corks ore pulled.
Senator Jones is a connoisseur in cooking.
He runs to extremes all the way from a
simple lunch of his own getting to a din
ner costing S50 a nlate. He claims with no
little pride that the greatest cook in Amer
ica is not in Washington, nor in New York,
but away out-in. San Francisco in a club of
which he has the honor to be a member.
Gen. Henderspn, of Iowa, was another
poor Scot boy. His parents'brought him
to America when he was a lad, and after
working till he was 21 on a farm, serving
in the army as a private and losing a leg in
tho defense of his country, he studied law
and became one of the successful men of
his times. Representative Wiley, of New
York, brought with him from the soil of
Ireland a smooth tongue, by tho aid of
which, with ofher good qualities, he has
lifted himself from the lot of a farm laborer
successively to local officeholder, country
storekeeper, member of the legislature and
member of congress.
Greenhalge, o'f Massachusetts, who in his
first term has won a reputation as an ora
tor and wit, was boro'atClithero, England,
of parents who struggled against the condi
tions of life surrounding them, till in a fit
of desperation they concluded to see what
chance there was for a poor man in tho
United States. Their sou had precious few
advantages in his youth, but fairly fought
hi3 way to an education and a comfortable
fortune won in his profession of tho law.
Now he is about the most prominent citi
zen of Lowell, of which city he was once
mayor, and ono 'of the most promising
members of congress from the oldBay state.
William McAdoo, the young Irishman
who has como to bo looked upon as the
leader of tho New Jersey delegation in
congress and also as one of tho brightest
men in tho house, started out in life under
auspices which did not promise much for
his future. His parents were among tho
poorest of Ireland's poor, but they camo to
America, settled in Jersey City, and there
their son was able to get enough education
out of the public schools to enable him to
go through a law office and emerge a well
equipped and successful practitioner. Pos
sessing that natural aptitudo for politics
which is a characteristic of tho Irish, ho
soon made his way into the legislature and
thenco to congress, where ho is now serving
his fourth term.
Tho life story of Congressman Niedring
haus, of St. Louis, is another good type of
tho experiences enjoyed by many foreigners
who have come to America seeking homos.
He was born in Westphalia, where ho re
ceived a common school education, and
was then placed in his father's shop, along
with several of his brothers, and taught
tho trade of painting, glazing and tinning.
When ho was IS ho camo to the United
States, and found work at St. Louis, re
ceiving at first tho pay of $ a week. Out
of this, ho says, ho managed to save one
fourth, and when his brother had joined
him, tnd they had an increase of wages,
they managed to start a shop of their own
out of ihcir savings. Now the Neidring
haus Brothers havo an extensive factory in
which thoy employ 1,200 people, and each
of tho brothers is a millionaire. Mr. Niod
ringbaus is not a groat politician, and the
speeches which he makes are sometimes
very funny, but ho is a good business man
and a wise counselor.
Congressman Clunio, of California, is a
native of Newfoundland, said to bo tho
only man from that island who ever rose
to prominence in tho United States. He
is stall a young ..man, but has been prac
ticing law for twenty years, and is ono of
the most successful lawyers on the coast.
Ho began practicing law before he was of
oge, and the Californiaas say he had to
stretch his oath a little in order to gain
admittance to the bar. Mr. Clunie him
self aays he was admitted when 18 years
old by special act of tho legislature Now
ho is a member of tho great committee on
pays and moans and one of the most in
fluential men in the house.
But it is not necessary to givo other in
stances of tho manner in which poor boys
from other lands "aro mado welcome in this
country and given an oven chance in the
race of life. Already, we think, w havo

How to Produce Perfect Combustion with
Wood Shavings, Sawdust, Etc, When
Firing a Furnace A New Non-Explosive
Flash Uht. .-yTT-?:,
Stokers with shavings are generally a
nuisance to the whole' neighborhood, poi
soning the atmosphere all around, making
the place dirty, unhealthy and disagreea
ble. This is caused by supplying the fira
with fresh shavings on top of the burned
ones and smoldering it, generating a largo
amount of smoke but no heat. The fixe
and heat are only produced when all the
shavings are charred. In order to produce
perfect combustion with wood shavings,
sawdust, etc, it is necessary to burn them
from the top, and here is givencthe details
of how a correspondent of Power-Steam
did it with satisfactory results.
TIG. L FHUXCr WITH 6HAVTXGS.
Provide a half inch gas pipe long enough
to reach to the end of the furnace. Light

take your half inch pipe and divide the
burning shavings through tho middle,
banking them against the side walla as
shown in Fig. 1, Now feed a pile of new
shavings into the center on to tho clean
grate bars and close your furnace doors.
Tho shavings will begin to burn from above,
lighted from tho two side fires, the air will
pass through the bars into the shavings,
whero it will bo heated and unite with the
gas, making the combustion perfect, gen
erating heat and no smoke and the fire
will last muchlonger and require not half
tho labor in stoking. If shavings are left
over, the planer shavings could be compress

) A New Flash tight.
At a regular meeting of tho Washington
Chemical society, April 11, Dr. Thomas
Taylor, of tho United States department
of agriculture exhibited a new flash light
intended to take tho place of several kinds
which have of late proved highly danger
ous in practice. Science tells that Dr.
Taylor's new flash light consists largely of
charcoal made from tho silky down of tho
milk weed a form of carbon which he
prefers to all others, because of its freedom
from ash. A few grains xf this new com
position placed on tissue paper and lighted
by a punk match produced a prompt and
blinding flash, while it was observed that
the paper on which the powder-rested was
not even scorched. Tho flash being instan
taneous, the heat is not sufficient to ignite
tho most inflammable material on which
the powder may rest. Dr. Taylor demon
strated this by using, with the same paper
for a base, an inferior flash light, which set
fire to tho paper at once. This is owing to
the comparatively alow combustion of tho
chemicals used in the inferior grade. Dr.
Taylor said that the powder of his new
flash light will not explode either by con
cussion or friction.
To Prevent Metals from Rusting.
Melt together a pound of lard and a lump
of rosin, the suo of an English walnut,
using only heat enough to melt tho rosin,
which will take place soon if it is broken
fine. By wrapping the rosin in a piece of
stout brown paper and striking it gently
with a hammer, smooth stone or other
hard substance, the rosin may be readily
broken, and by carefully opening the paper,
may bo added to tho lard with case. When
the rosin is completely melted stir tbe mix
ture well nnd set aside to cool, and, as it
begins to harden, stir occasionally. When
cool keep it covered to exclude the dust.
