Tns town of Atkinson, Me., has a
man whose principal trade is black
smithing. He has in one corner of his
shop a dentin's chair, and will stop at
any time to relieve anyone suffering
with toothache. When business m dull
in these two branches, he is transformed
into a lawyer. In addition, hi is a very
good cabinet-maker.
A xev post-oflico in
Washington
County, Pa., was rec.-mly nametl ile
Cbia. after Representative McGoid, of
that State, without the knowledge of
the Congressman. Mr. McCoid object
ed to the honor, and requested the Tost
Oflice Department to name the oflice

Ix the Government Mntcum at Wash
ington there is a coat with cilt trim
mings, bearing this inscription: Coat
worn by General Santa Anna. This
coat was captured by Captain Wheat,
commanding General WinGcld Scott's
body-guard during the Mexican War."
The Mexican Minister pronounces the
garment a fraud first, because it is too
small to have been worn by a man of
Santa Anna's stature; and second, be
cause from its trimmings it must have
belonged, not to the Commanding
General of the Mexican army, but to a
lieutenant of artillery. The garment
was presented to the Government by the
heirs of Captain Wheat in 1852.
The new system of interlocking rail
road switches was recently pot into op
eration on tbe Pennsylvania It ail road at
Dillersville, and was said to work finely.
The switches were ot the sama kind as
those Used at the Broad Street Station!
Philadelphia. They control all the tracks
of the Heading as well as of the Penn
sylvania Railroad, being operated by a
scries of levers in a telegraph tower
erected specially for the purpose. By
the new fysteni it is impossible for col
lisions to occur at this rather dangerous
crossing if the signals are properly ib
served. The officers in the new tower
bare control of all trains on the Penn
sylvania Railroad as far cast as Witmcr
Station, and as far west as Landisville
ind. Mountville, respectively.
Dk. Ckichtox Bkowxe in a recent
lecture called attention to what typhold
fevcr really means in England, and tho
amount of death, disability, and ex
pense for which it is responsible. It
caused 5.52) deaths in the United King
dom last year. The nnmber of cases re
ported was 27.G00, their average dura
tion was three weeks for the illness and
three more for convalescence creating
a loss of productive energy which should
have been expended in sanitary meas
ures. He furthermore said that a man
cannot be said to have fully recovered
from therflects of typhoid forfheycars,
and be enumerated its many scree re
sults. The fact that typhoid is the re
sult of negligence and dirt, and is easily
preventable, was shown to be indts
nutablc. The Russian Finance Minister attrib
utes tbe gloomy condition of finance,
trade and industry in Hussia to the com
petition of the United States. Canada
and India as the wheat-exporting coun
tries. This stagnation in the corn trade,
it is added, affected land owners, who
consequently bought less of manufac
turers. Manufactured goods also suf
fered from ovcr-pnxluction, chiefly as
regards cotton goods and railway roll
ing stock. .Mr. Kennedy. Secretary of
the British Embassy at St. Petersburg,
in referring to these circninsLnnces, ob
serves that the tone of tho Minister's
statement on the budget estimates for
the current year, i- -Mespondent;" that
the report anticipates no improvement,
while it announces the necessity for in
creased taxation as a means of raising
the revenue and developing manufac
turing industrv.
An event, the importance of which to
cattle-raisers can hardly be estimated,
has occurred in Arizona, in Sulphur
Valley, hitherto streamlcss and decided
to be in all respects of tbe common tvne
of dry vallcvs which are so abundant in I
that Territory. An cnterpnsiu;
citizen
was led to experiment for water by bor
ing last month with an artesian well ap
pliance. At the shallow depth of thirty
eight feet water was struck water that
rose to the surface &nd is now giving a
a steady stream of from fortv thousand
to fifty thousand gallons every twenty- j
four hours. Within c distance of eight j
miles, eight of thc&i wells have been I
sunk, none of them deeper than eighty-'
three feet, the flow from which is twenty
five thousand to lift- thousand gallons
of water in twenty-four hours. Tbe
water already obtained in this way is
sufficient to water at least thirty thou
sand head of cattle, besides affording
sufficient irrigation to maistain the
gardens that a population attending
the stock would require, and perhaps I
tree plantations for the relief of stock
from the sun and wind. If the success
which has attended the former operation
continues to the line, the artesian wells
of this part of Sulphur Springs "Valley
will supply water for at leass ns hua
dxed head of stock.

PmsBUiM, PA., May 27 The cause ot
Riddle's iilnes was an overdose of morphia

endeavoring to relieve him ot the medicine.
The news of the second suspension spread
rapidly and created immense excitement and
surprise, owbu," to the fact that everybody
had faith in the bank's ability to pay all
claims against it. The immediate" cause is
at present unknown, and nothing definite
can be learned, as the directors positively
win not be Interviewed. Large crowds
have been flocking to the bank,
and the pavement in front U filled
with anxious depositors and persons at

Close friends c Mr. Riddle are

turn ot affairs. It is said, turn ever, that
there had been a heavy run on tho
bank, principally by checks, and that
$260,000 were drawn this way through tho
clearing houscand that the crash was brought
about by the clearing house throw
ing out checks to the amount of 5263,000.
According to the statement of the directors
the bank had raised 931,000 to pay liabili
ties of $918,000. It is said that there were
5300,000 In certified checks which were not
included hi this and which had to be paid.
