In the rebuilding oi the King of
Korea's palace, which wns recently
destroyed by fire, papier tnachc will
be solely employed. To obtain n
sufficient quantity for the ptirpose
there has been engaged a staff of
1,000 possessed of strong teeth for
chewing up paper.
At Saviuorosko, in Russia, is rt
paper house. It has been entirely
built of blocks of papier maclie,
even the foundations and roof being
made from that material. So, too,
are the chimneys, although the pa
per used in their construction was
first mingled with a fireproof ma
terial. The house, which is of con
siderable extent and will, in the
opinion of its architect, outlnst such
as arc built of stoue and brick, cost
over ,8,000.
In certain towns of Russia, too,
the experiment is now being made
of utilizing paper for paving the
roads and streets. In this case also
blocks compressed to great solidity
are employed, and are said to stand
excellently the wear and tear of
traffic. The cost, however, is at
present too great to permit of any
thing like their universal adoption.
For courtyards of mansions and
similar purposes where expenses
need not be of much consideration,
paper pavement, it is averred, will
soon come into vogue.
Out of the sheets of an Austrian
daily paper an ingenious Viennese
engineer has lately constructed for
his own use a small yacht, fifteen
feet long, decked all over, and pro
vided with a ccntcrboard. In the
making of the hull, deck, masts,
sails and rudder several thousand
copies of the journal were used
each plank requiring no fewer than
2,500 leaves and enormous pres
sure had to be employed before the
necessary solidity could be obtained.
The inventor has already made
several excursions on the Woerth
See, and even in squally weather
his boat is said to have behaved
admirably.
The late Henry Krupp completed,
a few months before his death, a
number of paper field pieces. These
unique guns, wmen were made to
the order of the German govern
ment, are intended for the exclusive
use of the infantry. Their caliber
is very small, being, indeed, less
than two-inches, and so light are
they that a single soldier can,, tin
aided, shoulder one with ease.
Despite their small weight, how
ever, the resistance is greater than
that of a steel field piece of the
same caliber.

NEW YEAK.
Tlio Now Year's Potion of the Sturdy
Saxons of Old Kiighuid.
Our immediate forbears were
modest minded, hopeful folk, who
believed that what was good enough
for the Romans, the Saxon settlers
in England and the royal Tudors
was good enough for them, and
New Year's eve found everybody,
without regard to age, color or pre
vious condition, drinking what in
England of the earliest period was
called "wassail," in Scotland and
Ireland at a later day ''hot pint" or
"lamb's wool," and, with a slight
change in recipe, came to the United
States in the form of eggnog.
In old England wassail was mixed
in a vast bowl, from which every
one had as large or small a size as
his throat could stand, and it was
passed from hand to hand with the
word wassail, meaning, "to your
health." The day before New
Year's it was as well the custom for
groups of pretty girls to carry a big
punch bowl, bound with ribbons,
through the streets, singing as they
begged for the ingredients for the
popular fiery punch:
Wassail, wassail, over the town;
Oir toast is white, our ale is browpj
Our bowl is made of the uiapliu tree;
We be good folks all and drink to thee.
Generous and virtuous parish
oners considered it their duty to
provide the wherewith for a foam
ing bowl of wassail to be set before
the abbot in the monasteries of
every shire. This plump and solemn
prelate sat beside the bowl at the
head of the refectory table and with
a sense of humor dished out to the
appreciative monks big flagons of
what he called, in blessing it, "pocu
lum caritatis," "the cup of grace."
