IPrDCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Chicago, March 31. It may safely be
b&idsthat one of the gamest battles that has
been seen for a long time took place this
morning between Ike "Weir, the "Belfast
Spider," and Frank Murphy.of London, En
gland. The battle was fought at Kout,
Ind., and was a remarkable one. After
fighting 80 rounds the contest was post
poned until not later than Tuesday. This
fact ought not to detract from the quality of
the fight when everything is considered. In
the early part of the fight matters were so des
perate that "Weir knocked his hands into an
almost helpless condition. Mnrphy was fear
fully punished, but he displayed a quality of
cluck that has seldom been seen in the ring.
He is a stayer" of the first rank, and had he
known as much as AVeir the latter would have
THE SriDEB'S TACTICS
"When the "Spider" found that his hands had
broken up, he played a waiting game. He
knew deTeat would be his lot if he indulged in
exchanges of any kind. His backers repeated
ly urged him to fight, even though he was
beaten. This he refused to do, and Murphy
was not clever enough to corner him? As long
as 'Weir's hands were in good condition, he
punished Murphy fearfully. However, Murphy
gained many admirers to-day, and numerous
spectators claimed he was a better fighter than
Weir, The feeling between the fighters was
bitter, and they bantered and black
guarded each other perpetually. Weir
In the 67th and 68th rounds made an effort to
win. He fought Murphy all over the ring, bnt
the "Spider's" hands were too bad to be effect
ive. The referee states that the battle must
be resumed not later than Tuesday, but it is
doubtful whether it will or not. The specta
tors really demanded the postponement to day.
It is not likely that Weir's hands will be well
enough to face a tough customer like Murnhy
so soon. Parson Dairies managed the affair
exceedingly well. There were one or two lit
tle conflicts between the sports and the na
tives of the place, but only trifling. Both men
were considerably punished. Weir's ribs were
badly battered, and he thought his jaw was
broken. Murphy's eyes and face were much
braised and swollen. His face was a horrible
picture to look at.
THE riGHTIKG GEOTJ2TD.
The crowd was kept locked in the train until
the hall, which was located about three blocks
from the railroad was in readiness. About 15
minutes was the length of the wait. Then the
100 spectators were marched through the
darkness from the cars. Everybody floundered
through the mud and protected himself as best
he could from the rain, which was coming
down pell mell. In the hall, which proved to
be a good sized room over a store, everything
was cheerful, forming a welcome contrast to
the dreariness outside. The ring was already
pitched and in a few minutes each of the 100
ensconced in a comfortable chair. Weir and
Murphy quickly stripped in the rear of the
room, and after being rubbed down came
quietly forward. At just 1255 o'clock Sunday
morning the pair entered the ring. It was an
nounced that the seconds would be Ed Mc
Avoy, of Boston, nd Bill Richards for Weir,
and Mike Daly, of Bangor, and Billy
Daly, of Boston, for Murphy. Wier's
backer, McAvov. offered to bet any part of
51.000 on weir just before the fighting began.
There were no takers. Small bets between out
siders averaging 20 apiece were being made,
however, all over the room. Weir, the "Belfast
Spider," looked the more confident of the
fighters when they finally faced each other.
He wore bright green trunks, ithile Murphy
was attired in somber black. Murphy seemed
a trifle nervous. Billy Myer, the referee,
evoked the first applause by announcing that
the affair would be fought to a finish, if it took
all night and all day Sunday.
It was exactly 1:05 A. it. when time was
called. The men sparred cautiously for a min
ute, when Weir lead, but his blow was neatly
6topped by Murphy, who countered. The
"Spider" danced around in front of his antag
onist, swinging his long arms and .showing bis
right to the name of "Spider." buddenlyhe
lead and landed on Murphy's left eye, cutting
a great gash below it. First blood was claimed
and allowed for Weir. When the men came
together again Weir gave Murphy a frightful
smash on the eye. which was now bleeding
freely. Again the "Spider" lead, and reaching
Murphy again, knocked 'him squarely down.
Five hundred to 200 wasTiere offered by Weir's
backers. No takers. After the ten seconds
allowed for a knockdown had elapsed, the
round closed without further damage.
SOME HEAVY SLUGGING.
Heavy slugging marked the opening of the
second round on both sides. Murphy coming
to the scratch in an evidently wicked frame of
mind. His eagerness led him too far, However,
and partly from a slip and partly from a blow
in the chest lie went down. A moment later
he slipped again. Now, becoming more
cautious, but more resolute then ever.he began
a long, clever, gamy struggle. It was give and
take till the close of the round.
Botb men had apparently increased respect
for the other's prowess at the opening of the
fourth. Each was covered with blood, which
came mainly from Murphy's left eye and nose.
The eye was in an awful condition, and Weir
kept going for thai organ, while Murpby di
rected his blows at Weir's ribs.
Close in fighting characterized the fourth
Tound in the first moments, during which Mur
phy got decidedly the worst of it. Sparring
for-wind ensued, until just as the word time
was called there was a sharp exchange of
blows, each man getting a jaw-breaker.
Fifth round The men came quickly to the
scratch and the "Spider" led again. Mur
phy was fighting gamely and got in a good cut on
Weir's ribs, lut the wily "Spider" again swung
his right ana landed again on Murphy's dam
aged optic, .from which the blood was once
more flowing in streams down Murphy's neck
and chest, and bespattering Weir as well. The
round closed without further fighting. When
time was called for the sixth round Murpb v re
sponded pluckily and his eye had been stack
together anew with sticking plaster. Murphy
led, but Weir danced out ot bis way, and then
with an under cot again reached Murphy's eye
and scatters! the sticking plaster -and blood
profusely. The round ended with light sparr-
Seventh round Weir led again, but the
plucky Mnrpliy- was fighting well and stopped
his blow and -countered. There were frequent
clinches, but the men obejed the referee's cry
of break away promptly, and Myers felt called
upon to say ut response to some comment from
the crowd, "The gentlemen are fighting as
nicely as I ever saw; leave them alone." Weir
GOT UT ANOTHER SMASH
on Murphy's eye before the round closed. Signs
of exhaustion were visible on both men in the
eighth. Murphy's optic quickly got a fresh
cut from Weir's right, but Murphy's solid
stand was eliciting unbounded admiration from
the crowd, and he was not failing to get in his
work on the-'pider'a" ribs. Not less agile than
the "Spider," Murphy was much more stable.
A spectator said:
"Weir's a song and dunce man; Murphy is a
Weir now began a series of upper cuts with
his left, and apparently accomplished little by
the new tactics exeept to make the struggle
more showy. It was noticeable that Weir for
some reason let up on Mnrphy's right eye, and
turned his attention somewhat to the body
blows, imitating Murphy.
In the ninth Murphy seemed to get the best
of it. Weir was rather Minded, and Murphy
got in three blows to the "Spider's" one, but the
Belfast man's long reach was sufficient to make
the intervals between Murphy's success too
long to have a cumulative effect. Murphy
seemed to be just warming up at the call for
tbo tenth. He was not as strong as be at first
appeared, however, for Weir managed to elude
him by almost running away repeatedly. At
the close Weir aimed a fearful backhander,
but Murphy calmlv turned away bis head an
inch and escaped. In the eleventh Weir
showed what be meant by abandoning Mur
phy's left eye. The "Spider" planted a stinger
on Murphy's right optic, and noticed with grim
satisfaction that the left was completely
closed. Weir then danced around and drove
Murpby to the ropes, but there the latter got
in a good blow on the neck. A serfts of mad
rushes on each side, with frequent clinches,
tells the story until the end of the fifteenth
round, after which the men were too weak to
keep up such work, and began a genuine walk
around. For the next IS rounds it was more of a walk
ing match than anything else. The fighters
let their hands hang by their sides, and walked
around ten feet away from each other.
MURPHY 'WANTED COKE.
T can't run around like you," said Murphy
in his London accent.. "Come and fight me."
Til lick you yet," said the "Spider." The
spectators became impatient and urged the
men to fight.
Up to the forty-sixth round the walk around
continued, when Weir's backer ordered him
into the center of the ring and told him to
fisbt. bnt Weir seemed disinclined to follow
the orders and continued to dance away. In
the next round Murphy continued to rush at
Weir, and got in several (rood blows on his ribs.
Betting was now $100 to $90 in favor of Murpby.
The balance of the fight,' excepting the sixty
seventh and sixty-eighth rounds, was tame and
tedious. In the two-rounds named Weir rallied
and fought viciously, after being bantered by
Murphy. At the end of seventy rounds a sug
gestion was made to the effect that the rules
be changed to those of the London prize ring,
so that the battle could be finished. This was
objected to, however. At the end of the
eightieth round everybody seemed tired of the
affair, and the referee postponed the battle.
The party then left for Chicago. The" battle
lasted a little over five hours.
To-night Parson Davies said that if by any
means he could prevent it, there would be no
second meeting between Weir and Murphy.
After the return of the fighters to Chicago to
day it was ascertained that one of Murphy's
left ribs was broken. Weir, in addition to his in
jured bands, has a fracture of the jaw, though
not a bad one. The Parson says that under the
circumstances another fight within three days
would be beastiaL He is willing to divide the
$1,500 purse equally between the men, declaring
they have earned it. In this case all bets would
virtually be declared off.
THE CAPTAIN'S STATEMENT.
When Appleente Recovers Ho Can
Matched Against IIugKln.
Captain R. S. Oakes called at this office last
evening and made the following statement re
garding the proposed rifle shooting match be
tween J. A. Huggins and Mr. Applegate, of
Wcllsburg, W. Va.:
"There seems to have been some misunder
standing about this proposed contest. I did not
make the challenge, but only accepted onej
challenge was made in good faith. I'm no
bluffer and when I offered to match Mr. Apple
eate to shoot Mr. Hucgins, I meant what I
said. I have never been communicated with
on the matter by anyone and I have not seen or
heard from Mr. Applegat3 since the talk
about the contest commenced. I understand
that he is too sick to shoot at present and, there
fore, no definite date for a match could be ar
ranged. "However, I wish Mr. Huggins and his
friends to distinctly understand that I am pre
pared to match Mr. Applegate to shoot him for
$500 a side, or even as high as $10,000. I think
Mr. Applegate is the better shot, and I know
he has an excellent record. I will make this
match as soon as Mr. Applesate can deter
mine when he'll be aDle to shoot."
Mr. Huggins could not be seen last evening,
but it is understood that he is 'ready at any
time to enter into a contest with Mr. Apple
gate, and awaits the Iatter's recovery, so that a
date can be fixed. Captain Oakes says that the
contest must take place in West Virginia, and
he also asserts that there isno syndicate behind
Mr. Applegate. The Iatter's only backer is

ISFECIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. J
Washington, March 31, An interest
ing story is being told privately and con
fidentially among the Ohio men, which goes
to show that time does not soften the feel
ings of John Sherman tpward the members
of his partv who have thwarted his ambi
tion to be-President, When the Senate, in
executive session, was considering the ques
tion of confirming the appointment of
Whitelaw Eeid to be Minister to Trance,
the debate at one time developed much bit
terness in opposition, and it became evident
that there was danger of the defeat of Mr.
Mr. Sherman saw that this was the situa
tion and appeared in the Senate. He had
not taken any part up to that time. He
rallied the Republicans and secured tbe
nomination by making an eloquent appeal
The next evening Mr. William Walter
Phelps and Mr. Whitelaw Eerd were at the
Normandie, and Eeid deputed Thelps to go
as his ambassador to Senator Sherman and
tender his (Eeid's) heartfelt thanks.
A THANKLESS TASK OP 'THANKING.
Mr. Phelps went over on his mission to
Mr. Sherman's house in Franklin Park. He
was shown in and informed that the Sena
tor was in his office. The office is upstairs,
at the rear of the house. Mr. Phelps passed
up the long staircase and entered the lair of
the grim Senator.
After the usual greeting Mr. Phelps
cleared his throat and said: ''Senator, I
have come from Mr. Eeid, to extend to yon
his heartfelt thanks for the action you took
in the Senate in his behalf, to insure you of
his sincere gratitude, and say to you that
yon have placed him under deep obliga
tions." The Senator frowned, and in his cold way
said: "Mr. Eeid is under no obligations to
me whatever done at all. What I did
was done strictly in my line of duty. The
President chosen by my party had selected
Mr. Eeid for an important position. That

Mr. Phelps heard the plunk of the mer
cury in the bulb, and felt tbe goose pimples
icrawl out on his body. He shifted un
easily through a minute or two of painfnl
silence, and began again: "Well, Senator,
Mr. Eeid certainly feels under deep or, at
least, feels very grateful, for' he had not
quite expected you to champion his cause so
heartily, you know."
"Why had not he?" asked the Senator
with a taint show of interest
"Well, he supported or rather, that is,
in fact, he felt it bis duty to support
Mr. Blaine as a candidate."
"What?" snapped the Senator, turning
upon Mr. Phelps with a suddenness that
almost knocked the Jersey man out of his
.chair. "So Mr. Blaine was a candidate, was
he? I thought he wasn't a candidate, and
that the Tribune was free to support others.
Were we not so assured from responsible
people? But he was a candidate, after all,
and Mr. Eeid was unable to favor the can
didacy of any other man."
like a familiar pictube.
Mr. Phelps shook himself together and
remarked: "He was not exactly a candi

Eeid will do anything for you." Mr.
Phelps paused as the tall Senator rose up
over him, and the two assumed the appear
ance of the famous picture entitled, "And
Don't Yon Forget It"
glared down.upon the Jersey man, and said
he, with slow emphasis: "I have told yon
that what I did was purely through a sense
of duty. I .owed Mr. Eeid nothing. He
owed me nothing. He is nnder no obliga

never was and never shall be. He has
never done anything to put any man of my
native State under obligations. He has
never failed to put stumbling blocks in their

openly or covertly opposed. Speaking for
myself, I ask and grant nothing in his case,

THE MOUND BUILDERS.
Earthworks Constrncted by American In
dian When Buffaloes Were Scarce.
Mr. Gerard Fowke has, in a recent con
tribution, given another blow to the old
notion that the mound builders of North
America belonged to au ancient and ex
tinct race. Messrs. Lucian Can and Cyrus
Thomas have long held to the view that
these interesting earthworks were con
structed by American Indians. The evi
dence, to this effect is. overwhelming, and
few advocates of the old view have en
deavored to make head against it. Mr.
Fowke adopts the hypothesis of Messrs.
Carr and Thomas, abandoning -the notion
that there was anything in the way ot a
racial difference shown by the constrnction
of these earthworks. Mr. Fowke also criti
cises another opinion concerning the mound
builders, which was to the effect that they
were very much more numerous than the
Indians' of this country at the time of its
settlement by the whites.
Most of those who have made a careful
study of the ground will also feel disposed
to agree with him in this criticism. The
fact appears to be that our Indian tribes, at
least in the Mississippi Valley, were a few
centuries ago rather more sedentary than
they were at the time when they werp first
seen by the whites. I have myself had oc
casion to note the fact that during the
monnd-bnilding period the buffalo was not
accessible to the aborigines, that beast at
that time probably not having made his
way east of the Mississippi river. When
the herds of this animal became abundant
in the Ohio and Upper Mississippi val
leys, the people appear to a great extent to
have abandoned agriculture and. betaken
themselves to the easier support which the
cbase of this creature afforded them. There
is hardly any donbt that the aborigines of
North America were of substantially the
same race and with much the same habits
as our well-known Indians.

Brnnot'a Island Will Not be Favored With
, tbe Great Asphalt Block Factory After
All An Instructive Chat.
The officials of the Asphalt Block Com
pany, who have been in this city for the
past week looking for a site for the establish
ment of a set of works for the manufacture
of asphalt paving blocks, will leave for
their homes, in Philadelphia, to-morrow
To-day they will go to Wheeling to look at
some ground; but it is not at all likely that
the plant will be erected at that place. If
the necessary arrangements can be made, it
will be established at some point on the
Monongahela river, between Honongahela
City and Brownsville.
The party retnrned Saturday evening
from a trip through that vicinity, and are
very well pleased with it. They chartered
a steamboat and went all along the river,
looking for suitable stone deposits. The
best stone was fonnd near Monongahela
City. Mr. Charles L. Work, the general
manager of the company, in speaking of the
matter last evening, said:
It is very likely that we will establish our
works near Monongahela City, as that terri
tory seems ' to be the most suitable
in this part of the country. We
are desirous to get near Pittsburg, in order to
supply this city, Allegheny and the towns along
the Ohio river with paving blocks. The latter
are made of 87 per cent of powdered limestone
and 13 per cent of asphalt. The asphalt comes
from the Island of Trinidad in tbe West Indies,
and is the only asphalt in the world that will
not oxidize. The whole ingredients are mixed
to a pulp and make the very best paving stones.
You have some very well paved streets here,
but they have cost a heap of money. I notice
that on your down-town streets you have what
is supposed te be Belgian block. This is only
Ligonler block, and is much softer than the
first named. I notice also that you have tried
the experiment of fire brick pavements. The
best fire brick paved street will not last longer
than five years at the most.
Tbe plant we intend to put up will cost a lit
tle over S100.000. We will cive employment to
about 100 men. The statement that we would
establish our works on Brunot's Island is now
beyond consideration. If we can make a dicker
the factory will be erected where I have stated,
and must be in operation by the 1st of August.
We have already contracted for all the ma
chinery that will go into the works.

Steam whistles are made in great variety,
from the little tin pipe that is attached to
the street peanut roaster to the big fog-horns
that announce the approach of ocean steam
ships. They have displaced bells wherever
it is necessary to send a warning to a long
distance. "With a strong and favorable
wind the loudest steam whistle may be
heard 20 miles. They are much used in fac
tories and Southern plantations.
The biggest steam whistle on record here
abouts was made by Manning, Maxwell &
Moore for a Canada saw mill. The mill was
located in a sparsely settled locality, and
had had several fires, which resulted dis
astrously on account of the difficulty of
summoning assistance. The proprietors
sent to New York for the biggest whistle
that conld be got. The result was a steam
whistle about two feet in diameter that
could be heard 20 miles. It took a 600-horse
power engine to blow it. The whistle cost
It is unusual to make factory and planta
tion whistles that can be heard 10 or 12
miles. Big ship whistles are made of 10 or
12 inches diameter. A much-used whistle is
what is known as the Crosby chime. It con
sists of three whistles one above another.
These three-story whistles are much used on
ships. The smallest of the three whistles is
about five inches in diameter. This pattern
tan be heard a longer distance than any
Varieties of tone are procured by varying
the shape in the same way that a boy
changes the tone of the wooden whistle that
he makes. The Sonnd steamers have a
hoarse whistle that is quite distinct from the
whistle of other boats, and is readily recog
nized in a log.
Eailroad whistles are sharp and piercing;
not intended for long distance, but rather
for immediate alarm, especially for cows
and other animals that get on the track.
The latest idea lor railroad whistles is to
have a different pitch for passenger and
freight trains, so as to afford an additional
warning to switchmen.
There is a very ingenious fog whistle
which is attached to buoys and lightships
and is worked by the motion of the waves
by the aid of bellows. This is of course,
not so piercing as a steam whistle, nor can
it be heard at as great a distance, bnt it is
a very useful invention and contributes
much ,to the safety of coast travel in the
Steam whistles cost from $10 upward, and
are generally made of brass. Of late years
they have been nickel-plated. Some of the
'biggest whistles in this vicinity are on the
Greenpoint factories. The big three-story
whistles are sometimes called the steam
gong. There used to be a boat in the harbor
fitted with a set of steam, whistles called a
calliope. Barnum used to have a calliope
traveling with the Greatest Show on Earth.
The music was rather harrowing to culti
vated ears. The whistles were 'peculiarly
adapted to staccato notes, and seemed to

After the pictures are developed they are

She Sends an appropriate Message of Condolence to
More complete details of the terrible dis
aster at Samoa have been received. The
hurricane struck the ships in the harbor at
Apia in the early morning. One German
vessel, was sunk before but a few of the men
could get on deck. Many were drowned
while endeavoring to swim to the shore.
Queen Victoria has cabled her regrets to
President Harrison. The dependent rela
tives of the victims will be pensioned.
London, March 31. Further particulars
of the disastrous storm at Apia have just
been received. The hurricane burst upon
theharborsuddenly. The Germasman-of-war
Eber was the first vessel to drag her anchor.
She became unmanageable and was driven
helplessly on the reef which .runs aronnd
the harbor. She strnck, broadside on, at 6
o'clock in the morning.
The shock caused her to lurch and to stag
ger back, and she sank in a moment in deep
water. Most of her men were nnder hatches
and scarcely a soul of them escaped.
The German warship Adler was
the next to succumb. She was lifted bodily
by a gigantie wave and cast on her Jbeam
ends on the reef. A terrible struggle for
life ensued among the officers and sailors.
Many plunged into the raging surf and
struck .out, some reaching the shore in
safety. Others clung to the rigging until
the masts fell. Of those in the rigging
only two gained the shore. The captain of
the Adler and several other officers were
THE AMERICAN SHIPS.
Meantime the United States steamship
Kipsic had been dragging her anchors and
drifting toward the shore. The captain,
however, .managed to keep control and ran
her on a sand bank. Boats were immedi
ately lowered and the whole company were
saved, with the exception of six men.
Those were drowned by the capsizing of a
TheTTnitedStatessteamship Vandalia was
carried before the gale right upon the reef.
She struck with a terrible shock, hurling
the captain against a gatling gun, and he
fell stunned. Before he could recover a
great wave swept the deck and washed him
and others into the sea. The vessel sank 50
yards from the Nipsic, and several of the
officers and men went down with her. Others
perished while making desperate efforts to
swim to the shore. Some of the ship's com
pany tried to save themselves by clinging
to the rigging, but heavy and swift-running
waves dashed over them, and one by one
they were swept away.
By this time night had set in. Many na
tives and Europeans had gathered on the
shore, all anxious to render assistance to
the unfortunate crews, but owing to the
darkness, they were wholly unable to be of
THE OTHERS FOIiIiOW.
Soon after the Vandalia had sunk, the
American warship Trenton broke from her
anchorage and was driven upon the wreck
of the Vandalia, whence she drifted to the
shore. The bottom of the Trenton was com
pletely stove and her hold was half full of
water. As morning- broke the German
man-of-war Olga, which had hitherto with

the heavy seas ihat constantly broke upon
her, became unmanageable and was driven

ENTITLED TO PENSIONS.
Dependent Relatives of the Samoan Victims
to be Provided For.
Washington, March 3L Secretary
Tracy went to Brooklyn yesterday. Commo
dore Walker, Chief of the Bureau of Navi
gation, who is acting head of the Depart
ment during the Secretary's absence, was
not at home this evening, but it was said at
his residence that no additional information
had been received in regard to the vessels
wrecked at Samoa.
The immediate relatives of those who lost
their lives in the wreck will te entitled to
pensions under the general law. The pen
sion is $6 a month for a seaman's widow
and $2 per month for each child nnder 16
years of age. In the cases of widows of
officers it is proportionately larger. Parents
of the dead persons will have to prove that
they were dependent upon their sons for
support to entitle them to pensions.
Congress will probably pass a special act
making reimbursement for the effects and
baggage of the officers and men lost in the
wreck. This was done in the case of the
Huron, which went down on the Hatteras
coist about 15 years ago.
Sends n Message of Condolence to
Washington, March 31. Queen Vic
toria cabled through Lord Salisbury to the
British Legation in this city, to-day, di
recting that her earnest sympathies be ex
pressed to the President of the United States
on the terrible naval misfortune at Samoa,
and the deplorable loss of life. Mr. Ed
wards, the British representative, accompa
nied by the Secretary of State, waited upon
the President this afternoon and read to
him the Queen'-s message.
President Harrison expressed his warm
appreciation, and that of the .whole people
ot this country, of the Queen's considerate
sympathy in the calamity that had over
whelmed our naval forces at Samoa. A
more formal reply to the Queen's message
wonld be 'made, the President said, through
the Department of State.

said to-day in reply to a query:
We have not received any orders from Wash
ington to rush things on the Charleston, and
even if we should it would not do any good, for
the simple reason that we have more than
crammed the vessel with expert workmen and
any further attempts Xo expedite matters
would be ridiculous. The propeller blades
will be put in
dock next Thursday and will be taken to the
Mission Bock. The shell will remain there
until ready to go to Mare Island, where her
masts will be stepped. I cannot say anything
definite about her guns.

BLAINE ON A HOBBY HOESE.
A Part of the Gymnastic Exercises of the
Secretary oi State.
"Washington, March 31. Mr. Blaine
is a daily patron of a gymnasium in Yernon
row, on Pennsylvania avenue. He takes
the same course as the other patrons of the
place, and the professor in charge puts him
through the different exercises. He first
told him Saturday afternoon to stand
with head erect and feet together.
The professor then rubbed his
hands over Mr. Blaine's stomach,
kneading the muscles and nerves of that
portion of the body thoroughly, so as to in
crease the circnlation of the blood. Walk
ing a dozen steps Mr. Blaine assumed a
semi-recumbent position on a settee. "With
a firm grasp of Mr. Blaine's right leg the
professor worked it slowly in a circle for a
few minutes and also toward the Secretary
of State's body. This gives an exercise
something like walking, only it brings more
muscles into activity. The motion was re
peated with the left leg. Then both legs
and both arms were also kneaded.
Alter this Mr. Blaine was asked to
astride a kind of stationary hobby-horse and
put his feet in the two leather straps. His
body, entirely passive, was then -worked
around in a circle, first one way and then
another, to exercise the muscles of the
waist. A few feet distant is an upright
post, with little stirrups of wool crossing it
at right ancles. Grssnin? one of these and
. reclining his body forward at an angle of
aDOUt 40 degrees, tne secretary ot State al
lowed himself to be beaten all over the back.
This strengthened his nervous svstem and
promoted his digestion.
One of the most peculiar machines in the
room is that known as the vibrator. The
instrument consists of a leather belt oper
ated by a mechanical apparatus pnt in
motion by a crank. The belt is first put
aronnd the thigh. The friction produced
creates a sensation something like that from
an electric shock. After the thigh, the fore
legs are put through a similar operation,
then the sides of the chest, then the back,
the latter operation reminding one of the
currying of a horse, the beltjpassing up and J

The oldest bank notes are the "flying
money," or "convenient money," first is
sued in China 2697 B.,C. Orginally these
notes were issued by the Treasury, but ex
perience dictated a change to the banks
under Government inspection and control.
A writer in a provincial paper says that the
early Chinese "greenbacks were' in all es
sentials similar to the modern bank notes,
bearing the name of the bank, date
of issue, the number of the note, the
signature of the official issuing it, indica
tions of tts value in figures, in works, and
in the pictorial representation in coins or
heaps of coins equal in amount to its face
value, and a notice of the pains and
penalties of counterfeiting. Over and above
all was a laconic exhortation to industry
and thrift: "Produce all you can; spend
with economy." The notes were printed in
blue ink on paper made from the fibre of
the mulberry tree. One issued in 1399 B.

Museum, at St. Petersburg.
