arranged so as to receive the ends of
the service-pipe.4 either With or without
expansion joints. The service-pipes
are not taken directly from the mains,
but from the hollow supports thus
allowing them to be attached or die
tached from the support instead of
passing through the outside wooden
pipe to enter the steam pDie, which
itoul not he done beause the steam
pipe expalnd and contracts, while the
wooden pilt' does not. This over
c.)omes one of the most important ilb
jections to the use of long lines of tn

pipes are to be taken off. Another
iohijectif,n has been condensation. This

thea the clip has become immense, and
is rgly the main reliance of the
Aaaerical woolen factories. There are
still all sorts of reasons for importing
fomre wool, just as there are for im
portbg foreign irot, lead, cop
per, halt, cotton goods, silks, etc. I
Swant foreign coarse goods
beeane they are cheaper. Others
want special grades of foreign fine
wooL But the equality of American
wool is such as give our woolen goods
the command ot the home markets.
With our vast extent of land, great
varieties of soil and climate and large
developmnents of agricultural and pas
toral interests, there is no grade or
(tlht'l ot wool we cannot produce, and
no g4gl reason why we cannet conm
pet'4th foreign wool in price. The
war gave a great imoetus to the pro
duction of wool and the manufacture
of Woolen goods at home,. and it has
been firmly held out and increased.
A Ohromo with a Drink.
Henry A. .ones, brother of senator
•Jones, of Nevada, tells the following
story on one of his fellow townsmen:
WVhile in New York city, during the
late cold and snowy weather, making
his way with difficulty against the
blinding storm, he was accosted by a
familiar voice, which, on recognition,
proved to be an old acquaintance
from the "gold hill." The time, cir
cumstances of meeting and well-known
hifulous disposition of his new-tfound
friend all conspired at the usual invi
tation to "take a drink." Seeking the
first spacious bar, our friend nomi
nated, his exhilaraut as " whisky
straight." The shining decanter and
glasse were passed d'wn when, pour
ing out the fiery fluid, it rose, one,
two, three, four fingers high, yes, even
full, flush to the top of the tumbler,
and the customer seemed to reluctantly
stop pouring even at that, evidently
regretful that it would hold no more.
The barkeeper could hardly believe
that a single person would have the
face to go so far at emptying a bottle,
and until he saw it done had no idea
that any man could master such a
potion at a single swallow. Without
loss of breath, however, our Nevadaite
cleared the glass at one bending of the
elbow, and without grimace or change
of countenance threw dowhn his quarter
dollar on the counter.
" What is that for ?' asked the bar
",To pay for my drink, of course,"
said o:ar friend.
"Ob, no; none of thbtt," replied he
of the house; " you don't owe us a
cent; on the contrary, we always throw
in a cjromo with a drink like that."
effect of a Sermon on Hell.
A New York journal informs us
that "a Brooklyn woman, frightened
into insanitv hv a sermon on hell, was
discovured the other night almost na-.
ked, o the l.'athush road, trying to
dig up er dead children." That l)oer
woman had heard some learned divine
tell, in thoughts that breathed and

Enthusiasm of Oreat Men.
Would the .c.ientisas who have'
turned the world upside down with
their theories and discoveries ever j
have accomplished wlpt they have I
donea if enthusia.sim had not led them
on untiringly in their researche ? No
finer, nobler instances can be cited
than Prof. Agassiz. What patient I
thoroughness of investigatigation What
pas-ionate devotion to truth! What
reverent recognition of a Supreme t
Power g,overning all the great threee of t
the universe! A sad day for the i
world when that noble head was laidt
low in death. tand the nobler heart, that
had heat f, long and so truly in the in- I
torests of -riencf", was hushed firever. I
And what a rare example of unflinch i
ing devotion to one's self-appointed
life work has I)r. Livingstone left the
world! In the interests of science,
andl the higher interests of humanity,
how he persevered in the face of olh-I
stacles that would have utterly quench-1
ed all ordinarventhusiasm! The trench- P
ery of natives, the deadly miasma of
those African marshes, the fierce heat l
of a torrid sun, and the hunger of the
best affections ot a noble nature for:ii
the dear delights of family and I ,ime, r
had no, power to turn hibt from his
chosen taok. His zeal only went out
with his last breath. lie never yielded C
but to death, the conquero u,r ofal'. Ita
was fitting that Enulanil should have ijd
brought hack, with such honoms, this Ii
intrepid, heroic misio:larv exp orler
and laid him to rest with her most il-J
lustrious dead. Enthusiasm iIends
wings to principle. Straight onward,
unswervingly, will principle take a'
truly noble mind; hut inspire it with Ii
enthusiasm, and it is like Iuttinz'spurs,
to a mettled steed. The zealot--and'
the enthusiast is in one -.ene a .eanlot t
