from $1,000,000 to 5900,000. In 1891 America
imported from southern Germany S18o,000
worth of hair and over $000,000 worth of
hops. The latter article has increased
about 33 per cent this year. Iron ware,
fcteel and cutlery have fallen from $1,640,
518 to 902,365, a decrease of nearly 50 per
cent. Linen, cotton and woolen goods
amounted to SL807,9S0, an apparent in
crease of 5210.2S4; but as the item of cloth
has disappeared from this year's state
ment whereas last year it amounted to
over $500,000 this increase is only a seem
ing one. Music and musical instruments
were exported to the value of $120,208.
Silk, silk goods, velvet, ribbons and
braids fell from l,114,2oS to $2,941,611. Of
wines, brandy, beer and liquors, America
took during the last half ot the year sr2o,
From this mass of figures it is, however,
next to impossible to draw any definite
conclusions as to the workings and eltects
of the McKinley bill. Some apparent de
creases in the value of exports are due to
the strict regulations of the department as
rpgards the invoicing of goods at the place
of oricin. Sugar, for instance, was form
erly all invoiced from Magdeburg by the
sugar brokers there, no matter whether it
came from Germany or from Austria.
Now Austrian sugar must be invoiced at
the proper consulate there; hence the seem
ing falling off in the exportation of sugar.
The increase in the value of certain im
ports is also not always due to an increased
amount. Besides the reasons given above,
other extraordinary circumstancesprevent
the possibility of judging of the effects of
the McKinloy bill by the figures given. In
anticipation of its passage heavy ship
ments of all kinds of goods were rushed
..,,,., -vq nnn Thn Amnriean market
was overstocked with goods, and in conse
quence the first year's bills of expense will
show a large decrease in exports.

After ever preparation had been made
for the drop, Rev. Mr. Jackson asked,
"Did you do it you know what I mean? '
The ncizro, on the verge of eternity, re

Thoroughgood shouted: "I am not guilty,
thank God, and as I stand here on the

done injury to man or woman living. God

TO RAID THE TREASURY.
Washington. August 7. The secretary
of tho treasury has been advised that a
bold attempt wiil be made during the
present month to rob the treasury "'by a
.strong determined band of men organized
for that purpoie." The plan is to start
fires in various parts of the city for the
purpose of diverting the attention of the
police, and then to overpower the treasury
watchmen and loot the money vaults. The
information was giveu in a letter signed
by the "King of the Tramps," who ex
plained hib knowledge of the plot by the
statement that he was the leader of the
band. The letter w;is referred to the cap
tain of the watch, with instructions to
give the visitors a proper reception.

Many strange things have been told
concerning the secrete of the grave.
Within the past few months discoveries
have been made in Missouri and Iowa
that people have been buried alive, but
the strangest discovery was made in
Colchester a few days ago, viz., that,
after having been buried twenty-one
years, the body of Miss FJora Hume is
in as perfect a condition as the day she
Twenty-one years ago the lady died in
St. Paul of pneumonia and the body was
brought to Colchester and buried in the
Argyle cemetery. That cemetery has
long since fallen into disuse, and recent
ly it was laid out in nicely improved
grounds. The few graves in it were re
moved, and among the dead was the
body of Miss Flora Hume. It was in
closed in a metallic case. This was cov
ered with a heavy coat of rust. When
the cover was removed there lay the
body perfectly intact. The features
were readily recognized by relatives,
and the clothing looked perfectly fresh.
Even a ribbon of delicate tint about the
neck was as bright and fresh as when it
had been first put on.
The face was not in the least discol
ored, and the body was full and round.
In fact, the corpse looked as though it
might have been buried only a few
hours. Quincy (HI.) Herald.
In a Miser's Hut.
A dispatch from Columbia, S. C, says:
"Uncle Billy Bost, an eccentric char
acter of Cabarrus county, N. C, is dead.
He was a bachelor, about eighty years
old. His only companions were tsvo
dogs and an old negro. His real estate
consisted of 1,800 acres of land, which he
left to his nephews. He had a safe
which was thought to hold thousands of
dollars, but when if was opened the only
money found was a nickel. However, in
bureau drawers, in old cupboards, in
pitchers and jars, in old clothes closet3,
in old stockings and in cracks in his
miserable house was found 10,000 in
gold, besides a large quantity of gold
dust and bullion and a few hundred dol
lars in greenbacks.
"In the search a package from a Char
lotte bank was found containing $700
that had never been opened. This was
received by him in 18S0. He had corn
and bacon on hand four years old, and
some hay that had been stacked for
twenty-five years. He made his will
only three weeks ago, and there is much
talk of contesting it, for some of his kin
have been left without anything."
Choked by a Cow's Tall.
A peculiar and fatal accident occurred
recently to the seven-year-old son of Mr.
Tramal Carter, who lives four miles
north of town. The little fellow was in
the habit of driving the cows to pasture
every morning, and one morning after
he had eaten his breakfast he started off
with his cows as usual. About an hour
later a member of the family went in
search of him, and was horrified to see
a cow dragging the almost lifeless body
over the field. The boy had tied the
cow's tail around his neck, and the cow,
a gentle one, had become frightened and
ran off, dragging the little fellow with
her. The little fellow was released only
by cutting tho cow's tail, and was barely
alive. Louisville Courier-Journal.
Ammonia an n IMotivo Power.
A most successf nl test has been made
Df the use of ammonia as a motive power
to displace steam. The test was the first
that has ever been made on a marine en
gine, and the trial was most satisfactory.
An ammonia engine plant has been fitted
out on the tug E. W. Hartley, which
made a trip up and down the river, sub
jecting the new scheme to a practical
test. Its workings are novel and inter
esting, not only to the mechanical and
scientific circles, but also to the laymen
of the industrial world.
An ordinary engine can be converted
into an ammonia engine simply by tho
addition of a "generator," which is much
like a boiler. Steam is used simply for
the purposes of heating tho aqua am
monia in the generator. The heated am
monia expels a gas, leaving a weak solu
tion of ammonia in the bottom of this
boilerlike affair. When, by raising the
temperature of the ammonia, sufficient
power is generated, tho throttle valve is
opened and the gas passes into the cylin
der of the engine and propels the piston
rod in every way the same as steam.
It is here exhausted the same as steam,
but at this point the gas is cooled and
conducted back to tho generator. Be
fore it reaches the latter vessel it is car
ried by a "spray coil" to a point where
the gas comes in contact with the am
monia solution which has been rejected
from the generator, and here the solu
tion is recharged by absorption and by
tho natural affinity existing between
water and ammonia.
By this means the saiie body of am
monia is used constantly, exhausting
itself only to be recharged with new life
and to be returned to the generator. The
same is true of the water used. The
steam in the generator imparts its heat
to the ammonia and is thereby condensed
and carried back to the boiler to be used
again. In the ammonia engine there is
absolutely no waste. Philadelphia Rec

The prescience of fame is very infre

the return of the famous man who was
born on the farm under the lull, and
whose latent greatness nobody suspect

in the corner of the county paper, and
drew the fascinated glances of palpita
ting maidens in the meeting house, and
seemed to the fanners to have associated
himself at once with Shakespeare and

The Xeglect of tho Groom.

in a complaint for public consideration
against the constant neglect which the
bridegroom receives from the press, from
tho friends of the contracting parties
and often from their immediate families.
All interest centers in the bride, whose
dress is described in voluminous detail,
whose bonquet is not considered beneath
mention, and whoso face, blushing be
neath her veil, is the most pleasing at
traction of the wedding.
The bridesmaids, lovely girls, flutter
ing in dainty colors, are worth more
than a passing nonce. The ushers, the
gnests, and even the organist, are spoken
of in an appreciative manner. Some
times there is consideration shown to the
sexton of the church. But where is the
groom: mere are columns or aesenp-
jmmus vl u.np- .

in these columns the personal! tr of the
groom is passed over without a glimmer !

his choice of flower? Do his gloT&s St?
