A remarkable material called "terra-cotta
lumber" has recently been brought to notice.
It is composed of the' top layer of fire-clay beds
and sawdust, exposed to licit and pressure.
Slabs, bricks and boards of any shape may bo
molded from it. and it is capable of being cut
by edge tools, pierced by nails, sawn and other
wise manipulated, just as wood is. But the
strangest feature about it is that it stands,
whiuwi any apparent effect upon it, a more
intense beat than fire-clay will bear; and for
lining furnaces., for bridge walls in smelting
luxnaces, and other places of exposure to great
heat it will be a valuable and almost iucxpen
s.ve substitute for asbestos. "Water seems to
have no destructive inlhicncc upon it. Its
weight is about that of an equal mass of cinder.
tu;d its color varies from light bull' to fierce sal
mon. No doubt it will be found of great valuo
for building purposes.
Silver Spring, in Georgia, is said to be the
largest spring in the world. It is the source of
the Oklauaha River, which is sixty feet wide
at the start, ten feet deep, and with a current
flowing two miles an hour. All this vast
quantity of water eomes from the spring,
wIiom only inlets are at tho bottom. It is
about two acres in size, and its mysterious
depths have never been explored. There is an
Indian legend alwut Silver Spring, of course.
"Venonah, the beauty of the tribe that inhabited
the neighborhood, won the love of Chullootah,
a hostile chief. Her wrathful father slew tho
lover, and then Wcnonnh drowned herself in
the spring, which was then small, but was in
siautly enlarged to its present proportions by
the Great Spirit's abundant tears of sympathy.
Commodore Garrison of New York, Gov.
Foster of Ohio, and a number of electricians
have been wafching during the last few days
in Cleveland the testing of the new telegraphic
line between that city and New York, which,
it is claimed, will revolutionize modern sys
tems of electrical communication. No details
of the new method are given, but it is stated
that the Cleveland operator succeeded in trans
mitting a message of over 1,500 words to New
York, and receiving his O. K. from the operator
at the other end, in less than a minute. Mes
sages of GOO and 00 words were transmitted in
from 30 to 45 seconds.
The largest single purchase of live stock
made so far during the year has just been
completed. Robert MeGaughy, of the Chicago
livestock commission firm of Darlington, Mc
Gaughy & Co., has purchased the entire Texas
herd, well known throughout the whole South
west as the ' O. L." brand, formerly owned by
Lees Harris. This herd ranges in Texas in the
Colorado I'iver eountry. The total number of
cattle included in this herd amounts to over
17,000. The cash price paid was $225,000.
The weekly statement of East-bound ship
ments shows the heaviest tonnage ever sent
East in a single week. The largest heretofore
was 67,514 tons for the week ending December
13. The total for the week just past was 09,510
tons, against 59,937 tons for the week previous.
The increase last week was confined wholly to
grain, while th re was a slight falling off in
flour and provisions. The unprecedented ton
nage is due in part to the improved condition
of the weather.
Madison Square Garden, of New York, is to
be torn down and a structure similar in diame
ter to the Palais Royal, of Paris, erected. Tho
New York Herald says Messrs. "William H. Yan-di-.rbilt

interested in the enterprise. It is estimated
that the rnt of the 130 shops to be provided
on the first and second iloors will aggregate
$70,000. On the third will be a grand concert
hall and conservatory. The plan is expected
to necessitate the outlay of about $2,000,000.
Secretary "Weeks, of the "Western Iron Asso

How Jumbo Tossl'iI tho Mastiff.
From Vie Hartford Courant.
A short timo ago a large mastiff was pur
chased as a compauion for jumbo. A smaller
dog had been the inommoth's companion for
some time and to him Jumbo had become
greatly attached. Saturday the mastiff was in
troduced to his now companion and the latter
gave vent to his displeasure by a scries of low
growls. Suddenly ho caught tho mastiff
around the body with his trunk and threw him
clear across the building. Tho unfortunate
canine struck against the elephant Pilot and
was instantly killed. Pilot was maddened by
the blow and at once began charging the other
elephant". There was a great uproar for a
while, but finally ropes were got about Pilot
and he v as secured. During all the time, after
killing the dog, Jumbo stood quietly feeding.
Queen, the baby elephant's mother, stood ready
to protect her young one. Pilot, after being se
cured, was chained up by himself.
A Remarkable Kabbit Hunt in Texas.
From the Chico Record.
Last Thursday, a crowd of twenty-three
men and boys from Biggs aud Gridley, mostly
from the former town, turned out on a rabbit
hunt. They had the finest kind of a time.
There seemed to be millions of jack rabbits or,
as they are known by some, "Texas mules."
Great quantities of powder was burned, and an
old gentleman who was present said that tho
continual firing of guns reminded him of a
hard-fought battle in which he had taken a
hand. A thicket was Eiirrounded and rabbits
poured out in countless numbers. Tho sport
was kept up nearly all day, but the hardest
part of all was the gathering of tho game.
When the ground had been gone over several
times the men succeeded in finding nearly GOO
rabbits that had fallen under the steady hail of
shot and ball. The rabbits were sold to pay off
a chuich debt.
Wild fiicso Thoroughly Domesticated.
From the Neicbcm Journal.'
J. Harry Smith, of the month of Clubfoot
Creek, has the biggest flock of tamed wild
gecso it has ever been our luck to behold. We
saw them in a pond in his field swimming
around in their gayest antics. From the best
count we could make in their frolicsome man
ner there arc about twenty in the flock. In
this connection we mention two peculiarities
of the wild goose which may not be known to
the general reader. One is that they do not
mate until they are three years old, cone
quentlj cannot be raised from till the third
ycir. The second singularity of this species is
that if one looses its mate it never takes
another. Second marriage is not tolerated by
A Halo of Cotton Thirty Years Old.
From the Atlanta Constitution.
Mr. John Morgan, of Conyers, has a halo of
cotton that is thirty years old, having laid in
his lot since before the war. He is now having
itrepa'ked to fell. It has a rich color and is
perfectly sound, covered with good hanging
and bound with a rope. Ho had about one
hundred bales at the time of tho war and re
fused $30,000 in gold for them.
THE STOCK MARKET.
IteTieiT or the Week in Wall Streot and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
New Yop.k, March 13. Under continued
purchase the in.ii Lit opened firm this morn
ing, and prices up U ik.oii were on an advanc
ing scale; soon afterwaid-, however, on tho
announcement of a heavy failure in the whole
sale liquor trade, and a midden rise in Hie rate
for money, considerate r"alizations set in ; the
room tradeis, as usu:.;, g tting frightened and
selling freely; the weal' tone of the Vande.r
bilt stocks especially, causing them uneasiness.
The dull feeling thus evinced, continued to
the end of the day; the close being unsettled
and feverish, with various rumors cm rent,
which, however, lacked confirmation. Foreign
exchange duller on the stringency of money,
which loans at 15 per cent., and closed about 12.
