St. Patrick's Prayer.
The following is part of a hymn sill
extant in the Irish language which i.
attributed to St Patrick, and bears hu
name. It is said to have been used u;
him as a prayer when about to attemp
the conversion of the Irish x&oaarui;
I bind to myself ta-dr,
The power of God to pilie na,
The Might of God to uphold me,
The Wisdom of God to teach me,
The Eye of Ood to watch orer ma,
The Ear of Ood to bear me,
The Word of Ood to gira ma speech.
The Hand of God to protect me,
The Way of God to be before ma,
The Shield of Ood to .helter me,
The Host of Ood to defend me,
Against the snares of demons,
Against the temptations of Tiees,
Against the lusts of nature.
Against eTery man who meditates lajsry to mi
Whether far or near,
With f aw or with many.

Ihm Restored Rates.
A telegram from Sun Francisco,
under date of June 24, tmys that
the 'Ch1I" had that morning pub-
liched the following: "The freight

rorre time by tho roads entering
Aizlona and New Mexico has at
JaM come to an end. It original
ed in the desire of several roads
to hold the trade 6f the territories
for the it-spectlve cities where
they have their headquarters.
The Southern Pacific desired to
keep tho territories for this city,
while the roads entering Arizona
flrdNew Mexico from the east
fried to make rates that would
induce tlho merchants of those
territories 1o buy their goods at
Kansas City or St.Louis. Several
meetings of the representatives of
the lines havo been held, but the
trouble was never settled until
the last meeting, which was held
in St. Louis. A schedule of rates
was adopted which went into ef
fect Monday, aud which shows a
large reduction from the old
schedule rates. From San Fran
cisco to Maricopa on various
Ihssps of freight the reduction
will average about 20 per cent,
nnd from San Francisco to Tucson
and Benson about 25 per cent.
The "Calico Print," June 14th,
says that about 12 miles of rails of
the California Southern have
been laid from San Bernardino
northward, and about 16 miles of
grading are completed at the end
of the road. Some of the deep
cuts in the Cajon pass are begin
ning to cave iti.which shows they
have been made too narrow and
precipitious. At this end of the
rohd about 12. miles of grading
have been completed, and the
grader's camps are stationed at
Intervals for a distance of about
40 miles. About a mile of rails
have been laid, over which the
construction train - is running.
Varitius opinions have been ex-,
pressed in regard to tho time it
will take to complete the road,
and by striking an average we
may expect the road to be com
pleted some time in November
next; lb ere are 150 bridges to
be built, some of which are quite
large, which will require consid
erable time ;to complete them

Experienced lumbermen have
always held that timber cut in
the spring was not dumbly for
building purposes. Recent scien
tific investigations sustain this
belief. It is whown that the rich
er the wood is in phosphoric acid
and potassium the more likely it
is to rot and mold; wood cut in
the spring contains eight times
as much vt the latter as when
cut in the winter.

A new street-car motor mnde
a trial trip on specially construct
ed track, in the yards of the
Cooper's Point Iron Works of
Camden, Penn., recently. The
motor is operated by means of a
gas engine of 20-horse power.
Among the original features of
the motor are the automatic feet,
which act entirely upon the prin
ciple of the action in a horse's
front legs. They ure hepeath and
extend to the center of the mo

and ulippery places, where the
wheels slide. The feet push the
One of the most adhesive and
durable of cements known to
mechanics who essay to unite
iron surfaces is the oxide of iron
itself. With this a joint can be
made so perfect and sound that
the iron will break before the ce
ment will part. In removing the
cast-iron pipe of a bilge pump
from a ship that had made four
Atlantic voyages It was necessary
to take the sections apart. The
flanges had been pasted with a
cement of cast-iron drillings and
filings, mixed with sulphur and
sal ammoniac, moistened with
water. Then the nuts three in
each flange were set up on the
bolts and the union was com
pleted. The tour VHyages going
and returning occupied nearly
yeai. When the separation of
the parts was attempted, even
the cold chisel was unable to
make a divifion between the so
lid castings and the intervening
cements. The sulphur and the
ammoniacal salts are simply
means to more rapidly oxidize
the iron drillings and filings the
iron rust is really the cement. If
time is allowed, ordinary wateu
or salt water would act as a bol-i
