An Electric Heating Pad.
The fact that asbestos plays a re
markably nsef al part in electrical work
is not generally recognized. For pur
poses of insulation this unique mate
rial meets the most exacting require
ments, and its nso by electricians is
daily increasing. Its latest applica
tion is in the "electrothorm," tho new
device which has already begnn to
take the place of hot water bottles in
hospitals and invalid chambers. The
electrotherme is a flexible sheet or pad
composed of asbestos, in which elec
tric wires are embeded. When these
wires are connected to any source
of electric current a constant and
uniform degree of heat is genera
ted. For this connection the socket
of an electric lamp is. ordinarily
found most convenient, but where
the lightning current is not available
batteries oan be used. The pad is
found a great convenience in the re
lief of chilliness, cold feet, etc., as
well as in cramps aud other looal pains
and general hospital practice. By its
use the risk and discomfort of fre
quent changes of temperature inci
dent to the renewal of ordinary hot
applications aro entirely obviated. It
can b.e moistened without injury, and
it can be made to give tho effect of a
poultice or moist heat by being ap
plied ovor one or mora thicknesses of
flannel. It can be used by any one
perfect safety, and its simplicity
and convenience wherever the
application or artificial heat
is dosired rendars it especially
valuable for medical use. The regu
lation of the temperature is effected
by a conveniently placed switch.
Fads can thus be maintained at ap
proximately 130 degrees, 175 degrees
and 220 degrees Fahrenheit, when cov
ered with ordinary bed clothing, but
these temperatures can be modified by
tho interposition of a blanket, or
raised by additional covering. This
new adaptation of the principle of
electric heating is made in various
forms, from the simple pad, which
lends itself to all ordinary uses, and
the wicker-covered mat or foot-warm
er, tu a cape-like covering, which will
completely enwrap the neok and the
upper part of the body.

steps of the
The day was
a warm one
and tho Major's wounds were apt to
worry him a good deal in hot weather,
but he held his handsome old head
none the less high.
Markham, one of the founders of
the club itself, watched him go for a
moment, and then turned to Altman,
who sat near him.
"One man in a hundred is the Ma
jor," said he, "one man in a hundred."
"Yes," agreed the other' "but what
has he been saying this afternoon?"
"Nothing out of the ordinary," re
plied Mirkhara, "I was only thinking
of his past generally. I believe that
he was the best all-arouud soldier that
I ever knew. Ho has the greatest an
tipathy for anything bordering on
frivolity in military affairs, as yon
probably know, and he declares these
boys do nothing but' juay soldier' as
if they were fifteen years youuger
than they really are. "
"But doesn't he see the good side of
the question?" asked Altman.
"I suppose he docs, but he thinks
the Guards should be composed of
more caoable men - workingmen who
can stand a great deal, and not aristo
"Pray don't think I am supporting
the Major's views, my dear Altmau.
"When 1 remarked that the Guard had
been ordered to the mines, he said :
'I feel sorry for the young men them
selves, but more sorry for the State.
It ought to send experienced men to
such places if they ever hope to en
force the laws rigidly and quickly.*
Very firm in his beliefs is the Major,
and the strongest ono ho has, however
wrong it may seem to us, is that the
Governor's Guards in its present state
is a useless organization."
"For a stranger's opinion that
might pass," said Altman, "but the
Major ought to know better. And
I'm told, too, that the oflicers are all
"Yes," said Markham, "so I've
heard, and all of which I pointed ont
to him. But you can't shake the Ma
jor, as I 3aid." "
"Well," returned Altman, picking
np his paper again, "it gives him
something to talk about, anyway."
But neither he nor the Major's old
comrade knew the real reason of his
last outburst against the Guards in
question ; for that reason, in the form
of a square 6heet of note paper, lay in
the Major's inside pocket, and it con
sisted of hastily written but entirely
earnest oner tor hts daughter's hand
in marriage. And the young man
who took such a liberty was none
other than the First Lieutenant of the
Lieutenant Halloway was not a dis
agreeable young man ; in faot, he was
quite the opposite. He came from
the South and of a soldiering family,
his father having lost his life at Cold
Harbor during the Civil War ; he wa3
interested in a well established busi
ness situated in the heart of the city ;
his family pedigree was a long one,

"He doesn't want my answer for a
week, doesn't he?" muttered the old
soldier, as he marched on homeward.
"Well, he shan't get it! I'll think it
over, as he asks me to, and not make
a hasty decision, but I can tell him
right now what it will bo. No, em
Had the Major's good little wife
been living herself, sho would have
pointed out long ago tho possibility of
of this contingency arising, and would
have prepared him for the blow, which
must fall some day, and leave him
childless, while some enterprising
young man gained a wife ; but Mrs.
Major had died many years ago, and
left the Major tvith the pretty child
to bring up alone.
From a vivacious headstrong,
pretty little girl, Dorothy had grown
up into a beautiful youngwoman, with
her mother's, sweet face and her fath
er's will and determination.
So to-day, when he found th? Ipiier
waiting for him at the club, and to be
forgiven for railing against anything,
especially the Uuards, when it was re
membered that one of them was the
vandal, bent upon robbing tho cid
iwldier of ais daughter. Entering the
open do^r of his hand some house, he
called as cheerfully as he could:
"Yes, daddy," came the answer
from somewhere upstairs, and the next
moment the face he loved peeped over
the banister and a small forefinger was
shaken warningly at him.
"Ten minutes late, sir," she cried,
trying to be very severe; "what does
Then she ran down the stair?, her
pretty face dimpling with happy

Major, slowly, taking her bright face
between his two kindly old hands,
"it means that my daughter has

Then, as they went arra in arm into
the library, he added :
"Dorothy, Dorothy, to think of
you deserting at chis time."
"But I'm not f deserting dear, I'm
not !" she cried.
Then she asked, slowly :
"What-what did he say? '
"Nothing," replied the Major,
shortly; "he wasn't soldier enough
for that, so he wrote it."
"It was not because he wasn't sol
dier enough, papa, but because he
didn't have time. And now you call
him a coward-and-and he's up to

"He isn't a coward, daddy," mur
mured Doughy from the depths of
tho Major's shoulder, where she had
taken refuge again, "and-"
"My dear child, I didn't say he
was, " remonstrated the harassed old
soldier; "and you mustn't cry any
. But all through supper, though she
chatted nnd laughed BO brightly, tho
Major's old heart was still a trifle
sore, for he kept saying to himself:
"Only half her love is raine, and the
rest belongs to a Governor's Guard !"
That night, after the evening had
worn away and tho daughter of the
house had goue to bed, tho Major
climbed thc stairs, when he heard a
patter of small bare feet coming along
tho entry, and the next moment a
white-robed little figure stood beside
."You aren't angry with me, aro
you, daddy dear?" she asked, hugging
him lovingly, "and you- won't feel
badly about it, will you?"
"Of course I won't," replied the
Major, laughingly, * 'but mu back to

"But you aren't," she answered
quickly ; "you're going to find a son
-Tom says so himself."
Two days later the Guards were in
tho city again. Tho night they
reached the mines an attack had been
madeuponthemby the desperate strik
ers, and though they were taken by sur
prise, their officers had not lost their
heads. Using a row of salt bags as
breastworks, they received the charge
and repulsed tho enemy. Then the
Guard had captured fifteen of their
principal mon, driven the rest back to
their homes, and waited until the Sec
ond Regiment arrived on the scene to
relieve them. Tho latter having ap
peared at last, the Guards were or
dered home with their prisoners. The
papers were, of course, full of the
story of the fight, and the fact that
Lieutenant Halloway was mentioned
as one of the most efficient and col
lected officers there, did not tend to
harden the Major against his would
be son-in-law. He had also received
a painful, though not serious wound,
in his left arm from the knife of a
murderously inclined miner, which
necessitated his carrying the arm in a
Later in the day all sorts of rumors
began to fly about the town concern
ing the injurod feelings of tho miners
in regard to the imprisonment of their
ringleaders, and as night came on, the
report that they would come to the
city in force and endeavor to take
their men from the jail wa3 gaining
ground every minute.
"That is nonsense, plain and sim
ple," said the Captain of the Guards
when approachod by anewepaper man
on tho subject. "The miners have
had a doso they will not soon forget.
The only danger thc city now stands
in is from men out of work, who are
more deBperato by hunger and want,
and who will take to robbing if they
cannot find any other way to live."
And that very night tho Captain's
words were proven. .
The Major and Dorothy had been to
the theater and wera returning
home. The night was warm and soft,
and the moon shone so bright and
clear that the old soldier and his pret
ty daughter .walked on another square
before going in to enjoy the night.
The Major was about to say something
about the stillness of it all, when from
behind them there came a light tread,
and the next moment, without the
slightest warning, tho kindly old sol
dier was staggering forward from a
stunning blow on his head.
With a little cry o? terror Dorothy
caught at him as ho fell, but she was
quickly grasped from behind, and a
hoarse voioo whispered in her ear :
"Scream, aa' I'll choke the life out o'
"Go through his pookets, Jim,"
continued tho fellow, who was now
binding Dorothy's onus to her sides ;
"ho won't come to right away, but
we'vo got no time to lose. " As he
spoke, he picked up tho short, heavy
stick he had used with such murder
ous efiect a moment before, and as ho
stooped to do so Dorothy sprang away
from him and dashed toward the cor
ner. With a muttered oath the man
rushed after her.
Despite her clinging skirts and im
prisoned arras, the brave girl had
gained the corner and was just turning
down it, however, while her pursuer
was still several yards away, when she
ran plump into a a tall, soldierly young
man, who was coming up tho street
with a long, easy stride.
"What-why, Dorothy-you!" he
exclaimed, as he looked down into her
white face ; bnt-he got no further, for
the man was upon them. With an
other fierce exclamation of disgust
and anger, for he recognized the Lieu
tenant as he turned the corner, and
utterly desperate as to the cons?
quences, he threw himself at the
vjung office. Kalloway stepped
quietly aside as he saw him coming ;
then, as the footpad missed his aim
and hurled himself past tho Lieuten
ant, the latter struck him a sharp,
hard, scientific blow just bolow the
ear, and doubling up like.an empty
sack ho fell to th3 pavement without

pointing to tho spot where tho other
highwayman was still bonding over

question her further, her lover ran
quickly up the dark street, and made
out the prostrate form of the Major
and the kneeling one of his assailant.
As he carno upon them, the latter
sprang to his feet, and seizing his own

Like a flash of light tho slendei,
tough sword leaped from its scabbard,
and as the man's blow fell it was par
ried neatly by the officer's only
weapon. Again the stick was raised
and swung about his head, and as thc
man moved his face came into the sin
gle patch of moonlight that shoue '
through the thick boughs above, and
Halloway laughed grimly as ho recog

had wounded him at the mines.
"So it is you, is it, Scarry?" said
There was no reply to Holloway's
remark, but faster und faster rained

soon as I find a policeman and get
these two pleasing individuals in the

home, if you need it." And without
waiting for au answer, he hurried
down the street, soon returning with
a city officer whom he met sauntering
leisurely along in their direction.
Then ho and Dorothy and the Major
went home. Though the Lieutenant's
sweetheart had kept back her toars all
along there was a suspicions moisture

the hall, but sho was smiling bravely,
nevertheless. . As the old housekeeper

How He Snve.1 His Hut.
There is a good story told of the late
Dr. Matthews Duncan, the specialist,
wheu ho was a strugghug young prac
titioner who was just begiuning to bo
takon notice of by the world. He wai
called in consultation with soveral
eminent men of tho profession, and,
for the occasion, he donned his boat
silk hat. Being poor, ho could not
go in his carriage, nor could he afford
a cab, and as the day was fine he left
his umbrella at home, for the double
reason that he did not think he should
need it and it was a particularly
shabby one, and walked. The consul
tation lasted a long time, and when at
last it was over, Matthews Duncan
saw with consternation that it was
raining, and remembered that his um
brella was at homo. What was to be
done? A now hat meant something
considerable to him in those days, and
so did even a cab fare.
Suddenly a thought struck him.
Making an excuse to the effect that he
had an appointment, he left the big
medical guns, and, proceeding down
stairs, took the hat of one of them
whom he knew to ha7e come in a car
riage, leaving his own new silk hat in
its place. Then he walked home in
the rain. When the owner of the hat
finally came down and saw the ex
change, he congratulated himself ou
his luck, and putting it on, drovo
home in his carriage, and BO kept it
dry. His exultation, however, was
next morning turned to grief, for Dr.
Duncan sent him his hat, with a note
full of apologies for having made the
mistake, and asked him to give to his
servant the hat which ho had taken
home in his carriage.
Of course, under tho circumstances,
there was nothing for the great man to
do except to return Matthews Duncan
his new and undamaged hat, and to
receive in exchange hi? own, which
had been made a kind of scapegoat for
it, with as much grace as the circum

. THE COST OF JOY?'
I ?ho ?st of joy ia joy; for in the sea
A. brook no longer may an idler be;
Th* ocean Hits ber ships and bears them
Our sweet old hillside troubadour ls gone.
The cost of joy is joy; June brings the roso;
But clad In'tears tho violet springtime goes;
The rose of passion with her hot, red breath
Is love's flrst silent messenger to death.
Tho cost of joy ls joy; suns fright the moon;
The rainbow hope dissolves in truth's high
To-diiy costs yesterday In hoart and brain
Immortal life, tho sum of earthly gain.

Dogs That Hate White Men.
Kickapoo Indians are very fond of
degs, both alive and fricaseed. Around
their tepees or wickiups or Queen
Anne's, or whatever they call their
abodes, says tho Kansas City Star,
there are always half a dozen wolfish
dogs. An Indian dog hates a whit?
man as far as he can see him, and
loves an Indiau as far a<? he can smell
him, and that is saying a good deal.
Whon a white man driving through
the Kickapoo country sees a dog by
the roadside his natural impulse is to
whistle in a friendly way, lor some
how in a wilderness of prairie or for
est a dog is a comfortable sight. But
the instant you whistle to an Indian
dog he turns his tail and ia out of
sight quicker than if he had been
kicked. An Indian never whistles afc
his dog wh?n ho wants his beast to
come to him ; he places his tongue
against his teeth and hisses.
The colored population of Okla
homa have almost as many dogs as the
Indians. Those who live in the black
jaok sand hills are dog rich. Theso
dogs have a deep rooted aversion for
tho whito man also. When au old
colored cotton planter comes to town
some of the dogs are sure to follow,
and when the old m^n walks up town
tho dog stays right between his feet
liko a country dog under a farm
wagon. And whenever a white man
comes within snapping distance tho
dog gets busy.

but her mistress was not prepared for

Tho girl blushed, fumbled her apron,
stammered, and then replied :
"Veil, you pay mo twonty-fivo shil
lings a mont-"
"Andi can't pay any more," said
the mistress, decisively.
"It's not dot," responded the girl;
"but I bo willing to take twenty till

Speed, of Electricity:-'
The speed of electricity under tho
most,' favorable, conditions is now es
tablished to be 180,000 miles a second.
What this enormous ppeed implies is
somewhat dimly suggested by an illus
tration recently used by the emineut
scientist, Sir Robert Bell. Suppose
that a row of telegraph posts 25,000
miles long were erected around the
earth at Ihe equator. Suppose that a
wire were stretched npoD these posts
for this circuit of 25,000 miles, and
that then another complete circuit
was taken by tho same wire around
tbs same pasts, and then another, and
3-et another. In fact, let the wire be
wound no fewer than seven times com
pletely about this great globe. We
should Ihen find that an electric sig
nal sent into the wire at one eQd would
accomplish the circuit in ono second

vessel is an odd jiff tir with wings about
twelve feet long, connected with a
body some twenty feet in longth. The
inventor is now constructing a practi
cal machine which is intended to carry
a person any distance with ease and
safety. An electric propeller will give
the motive power, and the slightest
touch on tho rudder will suffice to
steer it. _
