TIIOS. J. ADAMS, PROPRIETOR EDGEFIELD, S C., WEDNj?pAY, AUGUST 5, 1896. VOL. LXI. NO. 28
Statistics kept by Chicago news
papers show that daring 1895 there
were 272 persons killed by mob viol
ence of different kinds in this country.
The Vassar graduates of this you
voted to abolish the commencement
essay and to substitute for it an ad
dress by some noted specialist on hu
specialty. They have set a good ex
-ample, believes the Atlanta Journal.
Here is a curious calculation as to
the amonnt of energy expended by a
person weighing 1C8 pounds in climb
ing a mountain peak of 7090 feet
high, the time allowed for the ascent
hoing five hours. By careful calcula
iion it is found that the total amount
of labor performed is equal to raising
1,390,000 pounds to the height of one
foot or that of raising one pound to a
height of 1,390,000 feet. Of thu
enormous amount of work 1,170,000
foot-pounds is expended by tho mus
cles of the legs in raising or Hiting
the body ; 12,000 by the heart in cir
culating V.? blood; 30,000 by thc

The Cleveland Plaindealer says that
a yonrg bachelor of Buffalo recently
gavo.a bachelor's dinner to eighteen
of his friends. AU the details were of
the most lavish description, and to
wind up with the host had prepared a
. dozen and a half of lamplighters, each
made from a twisted one dollar bill.
These were placed alongside of each
plate in readiness for tho passing of
the cigars. But tho fates hud a better
ase in store for theso twisted ones. *
Long boforo tho cigars w uro reached
tho guests had toyed with small bet
tles until they couldn't tell a lamp
lighter fro rn -a corkscrew. Then it
was tho turn of tho wily waiters.
Skillfully removing tho precious
lighters, they substituted matches at
every plate, and had the satisfaction
of seeing the cigars go round without
; anybody missing the bills.
Bteam, water, air and electricity
ai e the only four agents for power
transmission. Air, in ono sense the
cheapest as well as tho moat abundant,
is at the same time tho moat elusive
' !aud the least docile. Its first uso was
for diving. In 1351 it was first em
ployed for sinking bridgo tiers, lt
/'was also employed in driving the
lor sinking a colliery shat fe. It was
-employed for transporting goods-in
the early part of tho century. Un
successful tests were made of pneu
matic railroads, but successful ones
for the transmission of messages and
parcels. Tho foundation work of tho
partially destroyed bridgo at St. Louis
was largely executed by James
Buchanan Eads with compressed air.
For tho distribution of motive power
. by vacuum a profitable plant has been
in operation for ten year3 at Paris.
Tho motors are worked by atmospheric
pressure, and exhaust into pipes in
which a vacuum is maintained by air
pumps at a central station. There
aro also plants for tho distribution of
compressed air at Birmingham, Drest
c.en, Berlin, Vienna, Leeds, Norwalk,
Conn., and Niagara Falls. For trac
tion compressed air is still an experi
ment, admits tho Chicago Times
Herald, although it is in uso in several
European cities, and in Paris par
ticularly it has proved safe, economical
and popular for passenger transporta
tion. . Tho air is stored between the
wheels in cylindrical reservoirs, filled
at the terminals of tho linc. The
elastic force of tho air acta on ma
chinery similar to that of a locomotive.
Between the reservoirs and thc
cylinder in front of tho car is the ex
pansion engine, which regulates the
pressure. A car equipped with a com
pressor devised by tho Amerioan in
ventor Hoadley is the ono tried on
the cai i on Lenox avenue, New York
City. Each car weighs 2000 pounds
less than a trolley of equal power and
like carrying capacity, and etnrts and
stops without noise. So certain scorns

built on 146th street. Tuc experi

with acuto interest by all Amerioan

Warra of au Iron Bridge.
A train always exerts greater strain
on un iron bridge when going quickly
than ?Thea going slowly; but tho
difference in tho strain depends on
tho structure of tho bridge, and is
much moro in somo cases than in
others. When tho train goes over the,
bridge it causes a wavo to travel!
along tho structure, owing to the
elasticity of the iron.
' That part of tho bridgo just in front
of the train is raised a little, and tho
