The negotiations between tho Western Union
Telegraph Company and the Mutual Union
Company for an.arraugemcnL between tho two
companies have been completed in the leaso of
the Mutual Union lines to the Western Union.
Tho leaso is perpetual, and tho considerations
tiro the guarantee of tho principal and interest
of tho $5,000,000 bonds of tho Mutual Union
and 1J per cent, yearly upon its $10,000,000 of
stock. Tho Western Union assumes all con
tracts for service, press and individual, and Sdx
leased wires made by tho Mutual Union. The
fixed yearly charges assumed by tho Western
Unionare as follows : Thrco hundred thousand
dollars interest on tho Mutual Union bonds,
$150,000 dividends on stock, and $50,000 to
meet the requirements of the sinking fund pro
vided for iu the bonds, a total of $500,000. Tho
present gross earnings of tho Mutual Union
lines aro officially stated to bo at tho rate of
about $1,000,000 a year, of which at least two
thirds is required for operating expenses, leav
ing net earnings not much iu excess of tho re
quirements of the bonded debt. The Western
Union will also receive about $100,000 a year
cf the dividends and interest payments upon
stocks and bonds of Mutual Union which it
owns. The lease was ratified on Saturday by
the directors of both companies, and will bo
ratified by three-fifths of the stockholders of
both, as required by law. Tho Mutual Union
will, of course, maintain its formal organiza
tion, and one or two of its original directors
may in time be elected into the Western Union
directory. The property will bo turned over
to the Western Union as soon as the details of
the lease can be arranged. It consists of about
46,000 miles of wire and offices between Port
land, Me., and Chicago and St. Louis.
The business in dressed meats has grown to
enormous proportions in Chicago. More than
7,000,030 hogs and 2,000,000 head of beef cattle
liavo been slaughtered thero in a year. These
are conveyed to tho stock yard by eighteen
different railroads. The killing is now usually
done by shooting the animal just back of tho
ear, and machinery does nearly all tho work of
dressing. It is only three to five minutes from
the time a bullock is shot until ho is quartered
ready for the ice-box. The furnishing of fresh
beef to tho Eastern market began only a few
years ago, when one firm undertook to send
choice cuts to several hotels near Chicago, and
found that the plan worked well enough to
prove the feasibility of shipments to more dis
tant points. There were delays and losses at
first, but a suitable refrigerator car was soon
invented, and now thero aro no difficulties in
the traffic After the best parts of the carcass
are shipped, tho coarse meat is canned or mado
into sausage, the blood dried, and the bones
ground for fertilizer, the horns sold to comb
makers, and every scrap turned to account in
rno way. " We are selling the best loins for
eleven cents a pound," says a leading slaugh
terer, "and adding a cent for freightage, they
cost tho Xew York dealer twelve cents. That
Is for the very best quality, such as he sells for
about twenty cents."
The new flour mill to be built by Starr & Co
next summer on the southern shore of the Straits
of Carquinez, near South. Vallejo Junction,
California, will be built upon ahard rock founda
tion, above water at low tide, on concreto arch es,
through which tho tide can flow and ebb. The
main building is to be of hard brick, 150 by ISO
feet, and six stories in height. The two other
brick buildings, 150 by 60, aro to be used as
warehouses. The capacity of tho mill is to bo
2,000 barrels, of flour per day, with a possible
future enlargement to 6.00P barrels per day.
Tho mill will have wharfage for scnooners"and
barges on the east and west sides, whileon tho
tiortli will be tho deep-water berth for ocean
going ships to load flour for Europe. Adjoining
the mill to tho west will be a large grain ware
house and deep-water wharf 600 by 200, where
grain ships will load for Europe. But the most
interesting feature is to be a regular wheat
elevator, where wheat will be graded not only
as In os. 1, 2 and 3, for shipment in bulk, but also
into the various qualities required for all mill
ing purposes. The cost of the building will be
It appears from statistics which have recently -been
compiled that the United States possesses
in round numbers 33,000,000 cattle, India 30,
000,000, and Russia 29,000,000. Eussia has 20,
000,000 horses, the United States 10,500,000,
and Austria 3,500,000. Australia possesses
80,000,000 sheep, the Argentine Republic
68,000,000, and Russia 63,000,000. Tho United
States comes fourth in this list with 36,000,000,
but in the matter of swine she heads the world,
having 43,000,000. Tho goat is an important
animal in many countries. India is credited
with no less than 20,000,000, Africa with 15,000,
000, and Mexico with 6,000,000. From tho abovo
figures it will be seen that the United States
comes first in the list of nations with the two
most important articles of flesh food cattle and
hogs while sho is second in horses and fourth
in sheep. In regard to the latter two animals,
however, she is making rapid strides to a higher
Another great bridge is in course of con
struction across the. Missouri River twenty
miles north of Council Bluffs, Iowa. The
winter weather, though severe, has not inter
fered with tho work. The bridge is for the use
of the Sioux City and Pacific Railroad into
Nebraska. When completed it will cost nearly
$1,000,000. Tho piers are iron, the caissons
being filled with concrete masonry, and are 110
feet high. The superstructure will be of iron,
1,000 feet long, about one-third less than tho
Union Pacific Railroad bridge at Council Bluffs.
The masonry and piers will all be up by Aug.
1, and the bridge will be ready for use by Nov.
next. The peculiarity of tliosoil and banks of
the 3Iissouri River make the problem of en
gineering one of the most perplexing character,
but the success in bridging the stream at Coun
cil Bluffs has settled the question of the practi
cability of another bridge.
A long litigation in reference to tho Marietta
and Cincinnati Railroad lias been virtually
terminated at Chillicothc, Ohio, by the election
of a board of nine directors and changing tho
name of the road to tho Cincinnati, Washing
ton and Baltimore Railway. This is pursuant
to tho orders of tho Ros county common pleas
court and tho laws of Ohio. As will bo seen
by the following list of directors, the new
organization will bo on good tcrmsnvith tho
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company. Tho
board of directors are Robert Garrett, T. Edward
Ilambleton, Samuel Spencer, J. Carroll Walsh,
all of Baltimore ; George lloadley, J. D. Leh
mcr, J. L. Keck, of Cincinnati; W. F. McClin
tick, of Chillicothc, and Orlando Smith, of Co
lumbus, Ohio. Mr. Smith has been elected presi
dent, Chas. F. Low secretary, and W. E. Jones
Fir, pine, oak, and cedar of unsurpassed
quality and practically unlimited in quautity
clotho tho mountains, overhang the rivers,
and shadow the plains of the Pugct Sound dis
trict in Washington Territory. On a moderate
estimate it is calculated that "this region will
yield the almost unimaginable quantity of
160,000,000,000 feet of valuable timber. Tho
trees attain a remarkable development both in
height and beauty. The yellow fir is frequently
found growing to a height of 250 feet, tho
white cedar to 100 feet, with a girth of over
sixty feet; tho white oak is seventy feet
in height, while ordinary-sized specimens of
the sugar pine yield from 6,000 to 8,000 feet of
Steel manufacturers arc anxiously awaitjng

iron in the United States, and officially an
nounces that tho quantity of pig irom made in
1SS2 was 4,623,323 tons, which is almost half a
million tons moro than ever before made in
one year in this country. Tho production of
1SS1 was 4,114,251 tons.
A soap mine has been discovered in Cali
fornia. The substanco is a deposit of white
earth, free from grit, and impregnated with a
small percentage of potash. It is easily sliced
into bars, and,Afor cleaning purposes, is a fair
substitute for manufactured soap.
Some idea of tho service which the hen ren

Answers to Correspondents.
IL 8. A., Ireesoil, Mich., and many others. As we
have repeatedly stated, it is absolutely impossible
for us to state the particular cause of delay in each
claim. Delays are often unavoidable and arc
caused by various reasons. Ko two cases are
alike, and to ascertain how each case stands would
consume our entire time and that also of the olil
clals of tho Pension Office, as we have hundreds of
inquiries in rejrard to such matters. Tho work of
tho Pension Office is progressing rapidly. We can
but counsel patience on tho part of all, as it seems
very probable that these claims will soon be acted
upon. In cases where claimant lias an attorney
the latter is the one to whom, he should apply for
cause of delay. ,
E. H. 8., Morris, IU. The regiment mentioned
was present and participated in the battle of Get
tysburg, Pa. For names and addresses of officers
and soldiers of the Regular arm from 1802 to 1865,
you might write to the Adjutant-General, U. S. A.,
for the information desired. The First United
States Infantry ii now serving in Arizona with
headquarters at Fort Grant, A. T. If you write to
the adjutant of said regiment, as above, enclosing
stamp for a reply, you can learn what, you desire
to know- . - .,,.
W. H. P., Locke's Milts, Me. A claim designated
as "special" takes precedence over all other claims
not so designated, and when anything relating to
the claim is received at Pension Office it is at once
taken up and acted upon. Jt is advanced in settle
ment several months by being a "special " case.
PJease use some other kind of ink incase you write
us again. Your letter was so blurred that we had
much trouble to read it.
C. P., Luzerne, lowa.l. Act of August 7, 1882,
was intended to afford relief, by amending record,
in eases of a certain class of soldiers reported as
deserters. 2. There is a G. A. K.Post at Batavia,
TF. C. C, Bucksporl, Me. It is almost impossible
to answer a hypothetical question such as you pro
pound. When all the testimony lias been tiled
there btill remain several matters to be attended
to lefore it is considered complete by the Pension
Office. In mot cases it is necessary to verify the
service and presence of oflicersor comrades who

U. S. A. This may require several
A. M., Lafayclle. Ind.l. We have referred "your
complaint to your attorney, who will write you in
regard to the matter. 2. We do not know what is
meant by "sub" evidence. We never heard tho
term used. 3. When claim is allowed the claimant
will be notified of the fact in a few days. 4. It docs
not make any difference ; each can testify for the
otber if each is competent eo to testify. 5. A hos
pital steward's testimony in place of regimental
surgeon's testimony is valuable, and is sometimes
accepted as proving lact or treatment in service.
Wooden Walls, A'cw Castle, Del. It the disability
for which you arc now drawing a pension should
cause your death your widow would be entitled to
3 per month for herself and $2 per month addi
tional for each child under sixteen years until thqy
arrive at that age. If your death should be due to
causes not incident to your service pension would
cease with your death.
. C. IT. M., Macedon, JV. 31 It is disgraceful that
you should be annoyed in the manner you men
tion. It is disreputable for any firm to act as you
state the firm mentioned have done. We would
advise you to pay no attention whatever to their
letters. Their threats arc thin as air. If you will
report the facts, the Mino as stated to us, to the
Commissioner of Pensions, we think you will cense
to be ar.noyed in the future. They will not publish
as threatened. Drop them and refuse to receive
any letters from them, as you are right in your
A Subscriber, Ml. Carmtl, III., wants to know
"whether it be right for a woman to preach, pray,
or ppeak publicly in a church?" We refer our cor
respondent tovcrscs3t and 35, chapter 14, St. Paul's
Epistle to the Corinthians. (I.) This authority is
somewhat older than Tub National Teihune.
B. C. IF. Commutation of rations cannot be paid
where the original furlough is not in existence.
The document itself Is necessary to the claim. Ko

E. R. K., Lancaster, Mo. The law does not pro
vide a pension for wound received, "however
Might," unless such wound causes a disability that
interferes with the performance of manual labor.
If you are disabled one-eight of total you are enti
tled to SI per month. If the disability is less you
cannot be pensioned for it. Thero is no law by
which you can recover money value of arms fcc,
charted agaiu&t you on the pay-ioll. This was
stated by us in this column February 1, 1883.
C. C, Home, N. Y. A suit at law, such as you
mention, by the United States is never outlawed.
The party can be proceeded against at any time.
Such suit is not barred by any statute or law of the
F. V. R. Westford. In claims where more than
one disability is alleged, or where the disability Is
complicated with another, claimant is often exam-
ined several times to enable the Pension Office to
thoroughly understand his case. Where tho disa
bility is plain and the case is a simple one he may
be ordered for examination but once. The Pension
Office "reaches" a claim as often as testimony or
other matter relating thereto is riled therein.
IF. II. II., Glcndale, Ky.It he sends the testi
mony to the Pension Office himself, by mail, ho
can rest assured that it is there. Wo know no other
way for him to ascertain whether any particular
testimony is on file than to write and find out.

who said of Lincoln, " His heart was as great us
the world, but there was no room in it to hide tho
memory of a wrong." Is this what you refer to ?
Old Soldier. 1. Yes: rejected claims are generally
reopened when new and important testimony
bearing upon the cause of rejection is filed. 2. It
depends entirely upon tho ground of rejection.
Wc cannot give a definite answer without all the
fucts in the case. 3. There is such a person. We
know nothing of his reliability. We believe he
does business in a small way.

that pension shall be paid for the rank actually
held at the time. If under a commission, (though
not actually mustered in as such,) a vacancy must
have actually existed at tho time to entitle to pen
sion in accordance with rank for which commis

annual report recommended legislation by Con
gress giving an officer tho actual benefit of his rank
whether a vacancy existed or not. This has not
yet been acted upon.
A. S., Scotldale, Pa. Tho President's Cabinet is
composed ns follows : Frederick T. Frelinghuyscn.
Secretary of State; Charles J. Folger, Secretary of
the Treasury; Robert T. Lincoln, Secretary of
War; Win. E. Chandler, Secretary of the Navy;
Timothy O. Howe, Postma-ter General ; Henry M.
Teller, Secretary of the Interior; Benjamin H.
Brewster, Attorney General. There is no Vice
President of the Unitod States; Senator David
Davis, of Illinois, as President pro tcm. of tho Sen
ate, is Acting Vice-President. By " Star Route" is
meant that certain mail-routes, where it was con
sidered expedient to increase the number of trips
per day or week, were designated with a star.
This increase of service entitled the contractor to
increased pay. In tho "Star Route" trials it is
claimed by the Government that there was a con
spiracy to defraud the United States; that many
routes so designated were not necessary, and in
others that no additional service was rendered, but
that large sums were paid which went into the
pockets of the parties on trial.
C. Ill, Battle Creek, Xcb.l. It depends upon cir
cumstances. We cannot give an opinion without
all the facts in the case. 2. It is predicted to be a
general storm extending both on land and ocean.
3. An Examining Surgeon, if temporarily absent,
cannot designate nny surgeon to take his place,
unless by special authority of the Pension Office.
IF. II. D., Bath, JV. 1'. Any honorably discharged,
poldier, who is disabled, is entitled to admission t.
Soldiers' Home. You will probably be admitted
to Daytdn, if you apply by letter to the Governor
Rob Roy, Canajoharie, JV. I' You have lost the
wager. The lines you refer to of Sir Walter Scott
were tho words of Marmion, as lie lay wounded
and dying at Flodden Field, and are as follows:
" O, woman! in our hours of ease,
Uncertain, coy, and hard to please,
And variable as the shade
By the light quivering aspen made;
When pain and anguish wring the brow,
A ministering angel thou ! " .

THE STOCK MARKET.
Review of the Week in "IVnll Street and Closing
New York, Feb. 13. The market looks to
day, more than ever, as if it had cracked ice
applied to it. The chill has been very per
ceptible, and the public aro moro apathetic than
ever. It is given out that tho big operators aro
"accumulating stocks.' No doubt they are,
hut, no doubt, they don't want to. Necessipy
and personal vanity are tho prime motives in
such a course. However, the outcome of stocks
is more iu the nature of a drizzle than a shower,
and it is easy occasionally to put on a spurt,
and we regard it as a fair gamble to buy on
these little breaks as well as to sell on these
little rallies. In other words, it is a trading
marlcct on a descending piano. Money 34

CAN I OBTAIN A PATENT?
Send a rouch sketch or (ifyou can) a model of yonr
Invention to GEORGE E. LEMON, Washlnston,
D. C, and a Preliminary Examination will be
made of all United States Patents of the same class of
inventions, and yon will be advised whether or not a
Patent can be obtained.
FOR. THIS PRELIMINARY ELIMINATION
NO CHARGE IS MADE.
What will a Patent Cost?
If you are advised that yonr invention is patentable.
Eend S20 to pay Government application fee of S15 and
S5 for the drawings required by the Government. This
is payable when application is made, and Is all of the
expense unless a Patent is allowed. When allowed, the
attorney's fee (S25) nnd the final Government fee (S'-O)
is payable. Thus you know beforehand, for nothing,
whether yon are going to get a Patent or not, and no at
torney's feo is, charged unless $ou do get a Patent. An
attorney whose fee. depends on his success in obtaining a
Patent will not advise you that your invention is patent
able unless it really is patentable, so far as his best Judg
ment can aid in determining the question; hence, yon
can rely on the advico given after a preliminary exami
nation is had. Eesisn Patents and the Registration
of Labels, Trade-Marlis and Itc-issncs secured.
Caveats prepared and filed. Applications in revivor of
Rejected, Abandoned, or Forfeited Cases made.
Very often valuable inventions are saved in these classes
of cases. If you have undertaken to secure yeur own
patent and failed, a skillful handling of the case may
lead to success. Send me a written request, addressed to
the Commissioner of Patents, that he recognize George
E. Lejiox, of Washington, D. C, as your attorney in the
case, giving the title of tha Invention and about the date
of tiling your application. An examination and report
will cost you nothing. Searches made for title to inven
tions; in fact, anv information relating to Patents
promptly furnished. Copies of Patents mailed at the
l esrular Government rates (25c. each). Kcmcmber, this
office has been In successful operation since 1S65, and you
therefore reap the benefits of experience; besides, refer
ence can be given to actual clients In almost every county
In the United States. Pamphlets relating to Patents free

SIMPLE, because it is composad of less than one-half
the usual number of part3 in a watch, which are so
arranged as to be easily cleaned or repaired.

and keep time equal to the better grades of watches.

at a price within the reach of everybody.
