making OVER STEEL RAILS.
Now Truces* for Kerolllilg ltatlway Metal,
a Supposed J mpusslOil It v.
The big plant of the McKenna Steel
Working company in Armour dale, is
nearly ready tor use. The business of
the company will be to reroU steel
rails used in railway trucks and new
rails will be made out of old ones.
The process of this work was discov?
ered a short time ago by E. W. Mc?
Kenna, the senior member of the com?
pany, aud it has been given a thorough
test in a mill which this company has
had In operation iu Joliet, 111., about
An oiilcial of the plant said there had
never been any means known prior to
this discovery by which wornout rails
could be restored to use fur their orig?
inal purpose. The general presump?
tion was that rails lost by use a con?
siderable portion of their metal and
could not again be used. The fact,
however, is that the rails lose only a
very small proportion of their metal,
but become unserviceable from dis?
placement of the metal on the tread
of the rail. The usual loss would not
average more than one pound per
yard; that is to say. a rail o? seventy
five pounds section, i. e.. seventy-five
pounds per yard, weighing originally
750 pounds, when it was removed from
the track would only have losl from
one to two pounds of metal per yard;
and the scrap rail would thus weigh
from 730 to 740 pounds.
In the reproduction of this rail by
the McKenna process a further reduc?
tion of section is made in the manip?
ulation of the rail, equal to 2 Vi to ',',\'z
pounds per yard; thus it is that a rail
of 75-pound section, after having
served its original life, can be re?
newed, weighing seventy pounds to the
yard. The reproduction of the rail is
not limited to the first renewal, but
rails of proper section can be given
from two to five lives.
The First Meerschaum Pipe.
In 1723 there lived in Pesth, the cap?
ital of Hungary, Karol Kowates, a
shoemaker, whose ingenuity in cutting
and carving on wood, etc.. brought
him into contact with Count "An
drassy. ancestor of the prime minister
of Austria, with whom he had become
a favorite. The count, on his return
from a mission to Turkey, brought
with him a large piece of whitish clay,
which had been presented to him as a
curiosity, on account of its light spe?
cific gravity. It struck the shoemaker
thai, being porous, it must naturally
be well adapted for pipes, as it would
absorb the nicotine. The experiment
was tried, and Karol cut a pipe for the
count and one for himself. Hut in the
pursuit of his trade he could not keep
his hands clean, and many a piece of
shoemaker's wax became attached to
the pipe. The clay, however, instead
of assuming a dirty appearance as was
naturally to be expected, when Karol
wiped it off, received, wherever the
wax had,touched, a clear brown polish,
instead of the dull white it previously
hatl. Attributing his change in the
tint to its proper source, he waxed the
whole surface, and, polishing the pipe,
again smoked it. and noticed how ad?
mirably and beautifully it colored; also,
how much more sweetly the pipe
smoked after being waxed. Karol had
struck the smoking philosopher's
stone; and other noblemen, hearing of
the wonderful properties of this sin?
gular species of clay, imported -V.Mii
considerable quantities for tite manu?
facture of pipes. The natural scarcity
of this much-esteemed article, and the
great cost of importation, in those days
of limited facilities for transportation,
rendered its use exclusively confined to
the richest Ettropeau noblemen until
1830, when it became a more general
article of trade. The first meerschaum
pipe made by Karol Kowates has been
preserved in the museum of Pesth.

THE BACHELOR GIRL.
A Mat i on's Lertiire oiiUjii Most Independ?
Woman is by nature dependent. In?
deed, there is no such thing as an all
around independent woman. Few men
are4 wholly independent. Many young
women calling themselves girl bachel?
ors think that they have sought and
found real Independence. Then there
are the aggressive spinsters who are
firmly convinced that, they alone or
all womanhood'are truly independent.
They join in with the girl bachelors
and pity their married sisters for lieiiiR
tied to a man. The married women do
not answer them, for they ate satisfied
with their lot as a rule. And well they
may be, for the most independeut wom?
an in the world is the woman who is
not only married but also mated. Some
people say that a woman poorly mar?
ried is happier than the woman not
married at all. A matron gave two
girl bachelors some points along this
line not long ago. They spoke to her
lu a rather natroniz-.ng way about her
not being able to join in one of their
larks because she was married; it was
' like touching a match to kerosene.

agreeable peculiarities and are on

Now, this is but the preface. It is
not so much the object of the cult to
change voices as it is to control them.
And yet the two go together in a I
measure. Once, by this plan of nasal
gymnastics, a girl can aller her tones
at will, it is a simple thing for her to
learn to speak softly. She comes to
learn thai by raising her voice hardly
at all she can make her tones "carry"
to a marvelous degree. She is taught
the difference between rooms, how
there is one tone for public assem?
blages, another for parlors, a third for
still smaller rooms and yet another
for the street.
As completely as if she were taking
singing lessons does this system of the
new cult of speaking softly range her
voice ui) and down, keeping it mean
whlle (if there is a tendency either
way), out of her throat and her nose,
until she is complete -mistress of her
tones, all the while holding forward as
the main object soft speaking.

MADE A REPUTATION. I
An Kruillte Man-? Conversation With a Hop
and the Ke>ult.
Some good men are naturally surf?
teachers, and so full of benevolence,
especially toward the young, that they
.?annot help spreading wisdom wher?
ever they go. That the seed may fall
on stony ground is proyed by a story,
which a gentleman, who went hunting
far into the interior of Nova Scotia,
tells in a letter.
The hunter was carried sixteen miles
at night by a boy 16 years old and a
horse 15 years old. The ride was tedi?
ous, and the boy driver was inclined to
fall asleep. The hunter, therefore,
thought to interest him In something.
"I see we are going due west," ha
'"How do you know that?" asked the
hoy. "Were you ever here before?'*
"No; but there is the North Star."
"How do you know It's the North
"Why, there arc the pointers." |j
The hunter explained, and told th*
hoy how to tlnd the North Star. Thea
he pointed out two of the planets. Tha
boy seemed wide awake now, and tha
hunter went on to give him his first
lesson in astronomy, telling him how
Jupiter was 1.3oo times as large as the
earth, ami how Mars showed changes
of seasons?how it had bays and ap?
parent canals, and so forth, and how It
was supposed by many to have intel?
When, after his hunting, the stranger
returned to the town where he had
hired the conveyance and the boy, ha
found that the people seemed to have
a centtin humorous interest in him.
It was so evident that he was the ob?
ject of some curiosity or joke that ha
made inquiries, and finally found a
man who could tell him.
"Why," said his informant, "you'va
lititle a great reputation for yourself;
"In what way?"
"Oh. the kid that drove you over to
- the other night came back tha
next day and told all the 'setters' at
ihe hotel that of all the liars he ever
heard, you were the slickest."
"What lie did I tell him?"
"The boy said that you pretended to
know the number of miles to the sun,
and that you pointed to a star that you
said was called 'Jumpter,' and that you
saitl it was 1,1100 times bigger than this
world, and that you polnled to an?
other star that you said was one whera
I " 'Oh,' says the hoy, "you just ought
' :o hear him! He's a peach. Old
Haskins ain't in it with that feller
Tor lyln". I tell you he's the biggest
liar in Nova Scotia. I'll point him out
to you when he comes back.' "
The boy had pointed him out, and he
was at that moment enjoying the repu?
tation of the champion of all liars who
ttad ever come to Nova Scotia. ,
Alt Hawks Not Harmful.
The instinctive dislike of all kinds ot
snakes that is possessed by almost
every human being, is just about as
unreasoning as the antipathy shown by
a man with a gun for any and every
kind of hawk that happens to coma
within range. It is a hawk, and as
such it should be killed; that seems
to be the idea that is predominant. As
a matter of fact there are really very;
fe.v hawks that are harmful even la
the smallest degree to game birds and
game animals. The large majority ara
as useful to farmers as the house-cat
is to the housewife; they quarter the
fields like a setter or pointer, but they,
are not bent ou looking for a quail;
their favorite game is field mice, and
every farmer knows what field mica
can do lo his crops. For this reason
the annual slaughter of all kinds ot
hawks while on their Northern flight
Is something pitiful. A sportsman's
journal, a few months ago, devoted a
column or so to the doings of a certain
gunner who resides near the Atlantic
Highlands. 'Ihe Highlands are right
in the path annually taken by tha
hawks on their way from their winter
resorts, and this year Mr. White, the
party in question, is reputed to have
killed large numbers of bawks of all
kinds. If Mr. White and his kindred
spirits would devote themselves sole?
ly to the sharp-shinned hawks that ara

they would be doing some rea'; good to
the cause ot game protection; hut to
ruthlessly destroy any hawk that ia

year-book. The series of maps now In
Judge Pennypacker's possession and
made originally by a French engineer
with the American army, include not
only careful drawing* of the Valley
Forge encampment, but plans also of
the battle-fields of Pennsylvania and
It is understood that the plot of tha
Valley Purge encampment modifies
materially the traditions concerning
the camp, showing the location of
troops where heretofore no troops hava
been supposed to have had their en?
campment. The careful Hollander
who contributed so heartily to tha
American cause appears to have con*
tributed the last chapter to the his?
tory of the cause by preserving these
maps until they fell into the right
