k One of the most interesting of ree
cent inventions is the musical typewrl:
ter. It does not play music, but writes
s it, the keyboard being an arrangement
[j of musical characters instead of ordinary
letters. The mechanism is in
_ most respects similar to that of the
t. everyday typwrlter.
[ The shoet of paper on which the
ij music is to be written is printed ber.
forehand with the lines of tlie staff,
i; and, by pressing one of the buttons,
. the musical character desired may be
made to assume its place on the line
s wanted, so as to stand for the proper
i- note or other mark. Full notes, half
e notes, quarter notes and sixteenth
notes appear on the keys, as well as
the si?ns for sharps and flats.
In writing music, the operator first
prints the clef mark, and then the arDf
rangement of sharps and flats which
e. iudicates the key in which the piece
llt is written. Chords are formed by put.l,j
ting the component notes together, one
xl after another, but in a vertical line on
J- the staff. It is all very simple, but. as
r. may easily be realized, this kind of
e typewriter requires special expertness
and a good deal of practice. It is likely
ly to be of more value in copying than
j. in actual composing. ? Philadelphia

Irmy Appropriation Bill, Containing
Provision* For a Temporary Government
of the Philippines and Defining
Future Relations Between tlio United
States and Cuba, Passed by a Party Vote
Washington. D. C.?Xot in years has
there been a debate in the Senate
tvhich in intense interest, excitement
ind passionate oratory equalled that
Df Wednesday, which culminated in
the adoption of the Spooner amendment
to the Army Appropriation bill
and the Cuban amendment to rhe
same bill, offered by the Committee
on Relations with Cuba, and then
passed the bill itself.
The Spooner amendment confers on
the President wide powers in connection
with the Government of the Philippines,
and prohibits the disposal of
any public lands in the archipelago,
and the granting of .any franchises,
[luring the pendency of the temporary
government, unless such grant be
indispensable. The amendment was
adopted on a strict party vote, with
the exception of Mr. Hoar, (Rep.,
Mass.,) who voted with the Democrats,
and Mr. McLaurin. (Dem., S. C.,)
tvho voted for the amendment.
The Cuban amendment specifyin.se

the terms of the future relations between
Cuba and this country was

treaties concluded at Paris 011 the
tenth day of December, 180S, and at
Washington on the seventh day of November,
1900, shall, until otherwise
provided by Congress, be vested in
such person ana persons and shall be
exercised in such manner as the President
of the United States shall direct,
for the establishment of civil government
and for maintaining and protecting
the inhabitants of said islands
in the free enjoyment of their liberty,
property and religion; provided that
all franchises granted under the authority
hereof shall contain a reservation
of the rignt to alter, amend, or
appeal the same. Until a permanent
government shall have been established
in said archipelago full reports
shall be made to Congress on or before
the first day of each regular session
of all legislative acts and proceedings
of the temporary government instituted,
under the provisions hereof, and
full reports of the acts and doings of
said government and as to the conditions
of the archipelago and of its people
shall be made to the President, including
ail information which may be
useful to the Congress in providing for
a more permanent government.
"Provided that no sale or lease or
other disposition of the public lands
or the timber thereon, or the mining
rights therein, shall be made, and provided,
further, that no franchise shall
be granted which is not. approved by
the President of the United States,
nnri is not. in his judgment, clearly
necessary for the immediate government
of the islands and indispensable
for the interest of the people thereof,
and which cannot without great
mischief be postponed until the establishment
of permanent civil government,
and all such franchises shall terminate
one year after the establishment
of such permanent civil government"

He hurried into the Macdougal street
police station exclaiming:
"I'm insane. Lock me up. I'm all

night watchman for a shirt manufacturing
firm. He said he had periodical
visions of a beautiful girl whose killing
he had been compelled to order out
of motives of mercy.
"Seven years ago," he said, "I was

them until our ammunition almost

woman has haunted me. She te at

and I hear myself giving or-,

markmanship in the Guards, and a letter
from M. Rawics, United States
Consul at Warsaw, which stated that
the bearer was a man of excellent reputation,
and that his father was a rich
and respected citizen of that place.

"Cuba is now independent, and I can
ice no reason for sending this constitution
to the United States for acccptance.
.The United States Government
has no right to pass upon it, for
it is a distinctly Cuban document and

States now stands at the head of the
world's exporting nations. The complete
tisures for the calendar year
15)00, when compared with those of
other nations, show that our exports
of domestic products are greater than
.hose of any other country.

from the United States in the
calendar year 1900 were $1,543,013.Gr>0;
those from the United Kingdom,
which has heretofore led in the race
for this distinction, were $1,41S,348,000,
and those from Germany $1,050,011.000.
and those from France $787,
Additional interest is given to tlie
5rst rank which the United States now
holds as an exporting nation by the
fact that a quarter of a century ago
she stood fourth in that list. In 1875
the domestic exports of the United
States were $497.2(33,737; those of Germany,

then I picked up my health; my headaches

with ease; I used six bottles, and felt
like a new man. I can now do a hard <
day's work without any trcfuble, and I
am as happy i.z a bird in spring. I was
so miserable, always suffering, always
in pain, but now i am like a new man."
