After laboring for fifteen years on
the problem of rapid telegrapy by
means of the typewriter an inventor
claims to have solved it. The system
is said to print telegraph messages at
the rate of two hundred words a min
ute. The message is diotated straight
lo the typewriting operator. By a
device attaohed to the typewriter a
ribbon about an inoh wide is perfor
ated by a series of holes varying in
position and number aocording to the
charaoter represented. The actual per
foration of the tapes is not done di
rectly by the operator; if the right let
ter is struck on the keyboard the ma
chine automatically does the rest.
vVnen the message is finished the rib
bon is fed into another machine. la
its passage over a roller smaller metal
lic fingers press upon it, snd as differ
ent holes come under the fingers
electrioal oonnection is made with
the metal roller beneath whioh
produces the neoessary letters.
This machine is in synchronyT
with another machine at the end
of the line, and whatever letters are
produced on one maohine, say in New
York, are instantly produced on an
other maohine, say in Washington.
The invention can ba applied to any
standard typewriter. In the case of
large business firms, newspaper cor
respondents or othera using the tele
graph extensively, punches and rib
bons would be attached to the type
writers in their offioes and the mes
sages would be delivered to the tel
egraph offices on spools ready for in
stant dispatch. By tho new .method
all possibility of tapping or robbing
the message is obviated. The system
is ten times swifter than the Morse
and has the additional advantage of
turning ont the message in page form
ready for delivery. The cost for
transmission is brought very low and
the possibilities of the system are sug
gested by the fact that business men,
instead of sending their letters by
mail, can have them sent by wire at
the same cost as special delivery.
Emigration to the South.
It is no longer westward, but south
ward, that the star of empire takes its
way. As set forth in the Times-Herald
of a reoent issue, the march of emi
gration is making a wide sweep toward
the milder climates of the south, and
men and women are fleeing from re
gions of eight and nine months' winter
to a more equable zone. They are be
ginning to discover that it is an im
mense waste of energy and money to
spend more than one-half of their
earnings and two-thirds of their timo
in the mere effort to keep warm and
comfortable, when they may have the
condition for nothing.
That this impulse was bound to come
just ss soon as the southern states re
covered from the effects of the war and
became accustomed to new channels of
business and labor has long been fore
seen. The progressive southerners
have themselves been alert to bring
about this better day, and their spirit
has been manifested, not only in the
success of the Atlanta exposition, but
in the vast industries that have pros
pered at Birmingham, at Chattanooga,
at Knoxville and other notable points
in the south.
The people understand also that the
negro problem, if not settled, is in
progress of settlement, and that it is
at least no longer a source of irrita
tion. Hence that barrier is thrown
down and there is no deterrent cause
to bar the overflow of humanity from
the busier and more active hives of
the world.-Chicago Times-Herald.
A Dog's Sixth Sense.
L. C. Meaohamp, living near Homer,
La., on the edge of Arkansas,is a great
hunter, and has a fine deerh mnd.Dun,
of which he is justly proud. A few
days ago Mr. Meucha mp was going
squirrel hunting, and in order to keep
Dan at home he was compelled to tie
him np. The hound whined and beg
ged, bnt finding that his master was
obdurate he at last lay quite peaceably
before his kennel all day.
At 5 o'clock in the afternoon, how
ever, when Mrs. Meachamp was be
ginning to look for her husband's re
turn, Dan became so unusually restless
that she went out to see what was the
matter. In spite of her repeated ef
forts she could do nothing to pacify
him, and at last, to her utter aston
ishment,!^ broke the rope and bound
ed away over the fenoe and into the
woods. He was gone probably a hr.lf
I hour when he oame running back
panting And almost breathless with hia
master's hat in his mouth.
Mrs. Meachamp became at once
alarmed, and calling her son, they set
out to find Meachamp, the dog all the
time bounding along in front and lead
ing tbe way. At last they carno upon
Mr. Meachamp lying helpless in the
wood*, where at precisely 5 o'clock he
bad fallen in a little ditch and broken
a emull bone in his leg. The dog'a
knowledge of the accident at tbe very
moment of its occurrence seems al
most incredible, bnt the truth of this
is beyond dispute. -Phila. Times.

"I shouldn't, old fellow; whynot
take a good rest?" suggested the oth
er. "Then you will have redoubled
zest for your work."
"Yes, I think you're right," said
Hardy, after a pause ; "I'm feeling a
bit seedy, and I can now run to it,
especially after this," and he threw
tho letter containing the cheque across
the table to his friend.
"It's all right so far as it goes, but
you might get four times that sum for
tho pictnra before the Academy
closes," was I1?3 comment. "Your

sion, if he can wait-as you are going
away for a month-those are your or
ders," said the critic, returning the
letters. "Pin going to rest myself,
and shall take you off with me to Paris
for a month."
Having agreed to go by the express
fr. m Charing Cross thc following
night, they parted till then; the journ
alist to finish his article and the pain
ter to answer his two correspondents.
It would surpass the wit of man to
imagine a more miserable morning."
All night long the wind had blown as
though it meant to break its record,
and with the daylight the rain came
down in that determined manner it
assumes when it intends to continue
As the miserable hours of daylight
waned, the gale was still undimin
ished,, and as our travelers turned
Strandward they thought the cab must
be blown into nothingness ; however,
it remained intact, and they were soon
racing toward the 6ea in the express.
As they approached Dover the rain
ceased and the wind dropped consid
erably, but tbere was still enough left
to indicate nrough passage.
They were soon moving toward the
gangway to board the steamer; Tho
journalist was descending and the
artist about to follow, when a sudden
blow in the back sent him almost off
his legs. Hastily looking around, he
was surprised to seo a young laldy sit
ting in the middle of the gangway,
and he at once assisted her up.
.'May I offer you my arni?" he
"Thank yon ; I must accept, else I
shall never reach the boat 1"
They were soon on board*, and the
lady sought the saloon. The; artist
and his friend paced the deck dnring
the passage, and as the wind dropped
tho moon rose and the stars came out ;
so enjoyable became the sceno that
they wero sorry when they arrived at
It was not till Paris was reached that
Hardy again spoke to his fair assail
ant. As they were exchanging cards
she suddenly exclaimed : "Oh, there's
my father-I must introduce you."
At that instant a tall, elderly, jovial
looking man came up, and was intro
duced as Sir Henry Greet, and the
daughter told how Hardy had saved
her from what might have been a nasty
"It is an unexpected pleasure to
meet such a famous artist," said the
baronet. "You and your friend must
dine with us to-nigbt-we are at the
Hotel de l'Athenee, Rue Seri'.. " "* "
The dinner was a jolly affair, a^d at
its conclusion they separated with
buoyant spirits. Especially was this
the case with Hardy, upon whom Miss
Greet had made a deep impression.
During tho next few days they met re
peatedly, and era long their friend
ship ripened into something which
tho artist concluded must be love.
They visited the Salon together, and
did all the sights in each other's soci
ety-had eyes and ears for nothing
else but their individual selves. When
the artist and the journalist left tho
gay city, the latter took it as a matter
of course when he was told that the
former was engaged to Miss Greet.
Tho baronet and his family were to
stay another month in Pans.
Hardy had just finished his morning
pipe and was selecting a subject suit
able for the commission he had to exe
cute. His mind was brimful of ideas
for paintings, so that it was no easy
task to mako a choice. At length he
decided that the work should be called
"Beside Still Waters"-a lady stroll
ing in the twilight by the side of a
quiet stream reading a letter from her
"Now, Miss Nash, if you please, we
will begin," he said to his model, and
placed her in the desired position.
Then the artist took up his palette
and brush and seated himself in front
of the blank canvas.
Then it was that his eyes missed a
well-known sight, and they glared
round the studio in bewilderment.
With an effort and a sigh he pulled
himself together and settled down to
work. Dipping his brush in the color,
he lifted it to the canvas and-made
nothing but a emt ar n mn the sheet.
Again and again he essayed to bring
back his departed talent, but in vain.
With intense and unutterable horror
it dawned npon him that his artistic
genius had been but an intellectual
will-o'-the wisp. No sound escaped
from him ; he was at once transfixed,
staring with wide-open eyes at the
canvas bespattered with daubs without
form and void, and anon to the blank
wall beyond his easel.
All the time the model had been an
astonished witness of this remarkable
scene, but as the brush fell from
Hardy's grasp, and sinking upon a
chair he covered his face with his
hands in abject misery, she rushed up
to him. "Are you ill, Mr. Hardy?"
she asked breathlessly.
"Oh, it's nothing-only-only I
can't paint-all conception of how to
do it has completely gone-like a
frightful dream when one awakes. It's
awful!" And an eternal darkness
seemed to gather over his very being.
Just then tbere was a knock at the
dcor, and the baronet and his daugh
ter were ushered io. They were deep
ly concerned at the phenomenon that
had occiured to the artist.
"Now, you and Mary must marry,
and then possibly," the baronet said,
laughing, "your intellectual- blight
will disappear. You'll be all right
linancially ; I've arranged that part of
the business, so it won't matter if you
never paint again."
A fortnight later the wedding took
place; Hardy was too occupied to
dwell on his lost genius. Three days
only remained of their honeymoon in
Scotland, when a telegram arrived an
nouncing that Sir Henry Greet had
died suddenly from paralysis. So, with
heavy hearts, the young couple at
once returned to London.
Six months had gone since the wed
ding, and the painter and his wifa
were living in the late baronet'? houso
in Grosvenor square, which, along
with all tho other property of tbs
dead mao, had been left to them. Bat
Hardy still hankered after his lost
art, and continued to rent his old
Ono morning he and Moore were
smoking in the familiar room ; every
thing had been kept exactly as on the
day when the artist's genios left him.
"Alfred," said Hardy, "I've a strange
fancy, if 'Tho Dawn of Love' were
placed ago;i on 'hawaii beyond the
easel, T think 1 could paint a little.
Let's act upon the idea "
A contle of hours afterward the fa
mous picture was in its old position.
Hardy sat before a cleau cauvas. The
model posed for "Besido Still
Waters,," and af:er a steadfast look at
"Tho Dawn of Love," the artist be
gan operation. To his great surprise
the old skill came back to him as
quickly as thought, and with such a
power as he had never known before,
and once more tho glow of inspiration
shone in his eyes.
At the next exhibition at tho Boyal
Academy "Beside Still Waters" was
even more popular than the celebra
ted "Dawn of Love."
Ever afterward Edward Hardy's
genius for painting was marvellous
when "The Dawn of Love" was before
him, but unless in tho presence of his
tailsman ho had not the remotest no
tion of his art. Cases aro on record
where bj sheer force of will painters
have given to their brain creations
the figures in their pictures-the pow
er of hypuotizing their authors, the
artists themselves. Herico it has now
and again arisen that a painter hus
only been able to work at all whilo in
view of ono of his masterpieces. And
thus it was with Hardy and his "Dawn

An Unfortunate Gilt,
A civil engineer who boards at a
Capitol street house has just returned
from a surveying trip. Immediately
opposite bim at tho table sits a young
lady, with whom the mau of lines and
figures is infatuated. She greeted bim
as he carno in at noon from his trip :
"Oh, 1 am glad to see you. I know
it must be horrid to have to sleep in
all sorts of places, and such chilly
nights, tao. Now come right in with
mo and tell us all about it."
The young man, conscious of hav
ing had to sleep on the ground tho
night before, wanted to get to his
room unobserved and change his
clothing, but i? was too late, so he
concluded to go immediately to the
There the conversation was re
newed, and the civil engineer having
reached tho poetic stage of love's
young dream expatiated moat elo
quently upon tho beauties of nature,
the sense of peace and rest denied
when lying upon the green carpet of
earth under thc blue canopy of heaven,
and other touchingly pathetic and
charming similes. Then he remem
bered that ho had found an exception

had brought homo for the object of
"While out in the woods I thought
of my friends in tho house," hs said,
"and have in my pocket a sample of
nature's beauties, which I hope you
will allow me to present to you. "
Then, with a bow, he drew forth
from his pocket the mobs also a small
sized snake that had crept in and
curled up in the warm pocket. The
reptile darted across the table, the
young lady fainted, the other board
ers jumped on tho chairs, everybody
screamed, while the reptile glided
around, seeming to play hide and seek
among the dishes. Finally one of the
gentlemen present killed the snake
with the carving knife, and after tho
landlady had bestowed a withering
look upon the young man and told
him that she was "in tho habit of en
tertaining ladies and gentlemen only,"
and that "no gontlemau would play
such a joke," ho was allowed to go,
and he will never return.-Washing
Humane Way to Kill Lobsters.
Tho question as to whether there
could not be a more humane method
of killing lobsters devised, than the
boiling now in vogue, has been dis
cussed in tho London Spectator lately,
and some one said they could bo killed
instantly by a penknile, and the Spec
tator comes down to details in reply
by saying :

Smallest ol Ponies.
During tho past two months tho
Milne brothers of Monea juth, UL,
have been sending out pictures and
accounts of the "smallest colt in the
world," a diminutivo specimen of the
equino species foaled at their pony
farm in July, 1894. This is being
done because of an item which ap
peared in tho Republic during tba
summer, and which claimed that an
Indiana Shetland colt belonging to
Harry B. Smith, of Hartford City, was
the "smallest colt ever foaled on
American V" The equine dwarf of
the Hoosic. State was twenty-one
inches high and weighed twenty-seven
and one-half pounds on tho day of its
Milne's "vest pocket edition" colt,
i cording to tho accounts which wero
given at the time, and whinh have
been revived by the latj "curious
note" in this paper, was but twenty
inches high at birth and weighed but
twenty pounds-on3 pound exactly
for each inch. This miniature ia
horseflesh was named Tom Thumb.
His mother is Kila, one of Milne's
pets. She is so small that an average
sized man can stand astride her and
placo both feet squarely upon the
ground without touching her back.

A Dog With an Extraordinary Record.
An ordinary dog with an extraor
dinary record was lost by Mr. George
Brooks, of Belleville, Conn., tho other
day, and a reward that would be larga
for a big prize winner has beon offered
for his recovery aud restoration. Tho
dog's record is that he has been pois
oned four times, run over by wagons
twice, badly scalded once, has had a
butcher's knife thrust handle-deep
into him, and was once thrown sixty
leet by the pilot of a locomotive.
When the engine tossed him his career
seemed surely ended. His grave was
dug and he was about to be placed in
it when somebody noticed ono of his
ears twich. Restoratives wers applied,
he got round, and was soon as frisky
as ever. Mr. Brooks is anxious to get
his dog back", but the neighbors are
even moro anxious to know whether he
is dead, and, if ho is. what can possi
bly have taken him off at lait.-New

His Skin an Armor.
In Berlin a Singhalese baffles all in
vestigations by the physicians by the
impenetrability of his skin. The
bronzed Easterner, a Hercules in
shape, claims to have found an elixir
which will render the human skin im
pervious to any metal point or sharp
ened edge of a knife or dagger, and
calls himself the "Man with Iron
Skin." It is true that it has been im
possible to even scratch his skin with
sharply-pointed nails, with finely- j
ground knives and daggers.
Ho is now exhibiting himself, and |
his greatest feat is to pass with his en
tire body through a hoop, the inside
of which is hardly big enough to ad
mit his body, and is olosely set with
sharp knife points, daggers, nails and
other equally pleasant trifles. Through
this hoop he squeezes his body with
absolute impunity. The physicians
do not agree as to his immunity, and
some of them think that Bhanniu,
which is his name, is a fakir who has,
by long practice, succeeded in harden
ing himself against the impressions of
metal upon his skin. The professors
of the Berlin clinic, however, consid
ered it worth while to lecture about
the man's skin, pronouncing it an in
explicable matter.-London Daily

There is more than one food
which will cause the body to
increase in weight. A free
supply of sugar will do this;
so will the starchy foods;
cream, and seme other fats.
But to become fleshy, and yet
remain in poor health, is not
what you want. Cod-liver oil
increases the weight because
it is a fat-producing food. But
it does far more than this. It
alters, or changes, the pro
cesses of nutrition, restoring
the normal functions of the
various organs and tissues.
of Cod-liver Oil, with hypo
phosphites, is pure cod-liver
in a digested condition. So
that, when a person gains in
weight from taking Scott's
Emulsion, it is because of two
things: First, the oil has
acted as a fat-producing food;
and, second, it has restored
to the body a healthy condi
tion. Such an improvement
is permanent: it comes io stay.

that, if tobaoco wasn't the cause, lt
must be Acute dyspepsia. His
