How Godsend Lufkin Got His Name.
Perliaps Godsend Lufkin, of Tilden,
has the distinction of owing the
queerest name in Maine. Godsend's
grandfather, old Peter Lufkin, owned
about all the wild land in tho town.
When he died he left his property to
hi;? four boys in trust, the whole of it
to go to the first grandson who should
como into tho world. At that time
none of the boys were married, but
they at once remedied this fault, every
one taking a wife inside of a year from
the time the will of their father was
made. Six years after his wedding
the wife of George Lufkin presented
to him a son, who was entitled to the
great estato under the terms of the
will. It was agreed that the boy's
mother should bestow the name, but
she neglected to tell the minister
about it before the party had assem
bled in the Church. Then when the
clergyman asked what name he
should bestow the child's father spoke
np aud said: "I think you'd better
call him a godsend, because he has
proved that to my family. " The words
spoken in jest were taken in earnest
by the clergyman, who proceeded to
formally christen the boy as " A God
send Lufkin," a name which he bears
to day. As he got nearly $100,000
worth of property along with his
name, he is trying to stand it.-De
troit Free Press.
Stole the Funeral Ribbon.
A novel industry was brought to
light by the arrest of Nellie McConnell
in New York City. It is customary
for fashionable florists in that city to
garnish their floral devices used at
funerals with long s -reamers of broad
ribbon of the richest silk or satin. It
was for stealing these ribbons from the
various cemeteries that Nellie was ar
rested, and when sho was brought in
to court she declared that she had no
intention of stealing, but thought it
was a pity that such lots of fine ma
terial should be allowed to spoil in the
open air. The occupation of gather
ing the ribbon wa3 a profitable one, as
the proceeds of a single morning's
work were about $25.
When Life Bogan on Earth.
Lord Kelvin estimates that the time

From similar physical data Clarence
King has made an estimate nearly
agreeing with this. Warren TJpham
says that geologists generally regard

Tho English Walnut.
Possibly few trees in tho old world
are moro profitable than the English
walnut, which thrives in England and
all over the northern part the con
tinent of Europe. The wood is es
pecially useful for guustocks and for
many articles of furniture, and is
found profitable from trees of ten
years of age and upward. There is
always a good demand for the nuts, so
that thero are two distinct lines of
profit-by the timber and by the fruit.
In our country they thrive in any por
tion of thc.Eastern States, although as
they progress northwardly the tips of
the last year's shoots are destroyod by
winter. The living portions push out
again, however, and generally bear as
abundantly as before.
In the vicinity of Philadelphia there
are numerous trees, planted by the
early German settlers, which bear
every year. Single or isolated trees
sometimes fail to bear fruit on ac
count of the pol!.en-bearing flower ma
turing and scattering pollen before
the nut-bearing flower is iu condition
to receive it, and for this reason crops
are more assured when a number of
trees are planted together. In this
way some of the pollen-bearing catkins
are conditioned so as io be in bloom
before the time that the nut-bearing
flowers make their appearance.
Notable Bridge For Japan.
It is reported that Japanese engi
neers are preparing plans for the
construction of a bridge across the
Straits of Shimonoseki, so as to unite
the main line of the Kin Sun Railway
with that of the Sanyo Railway from
Shimonoseki to Hiogo. The Straits
at the point referred to, aro about one
mile in width, and the current
through them is very rapid. The
bridge, moreover, must be construct
ed suificiently high to enable the
largest ocean steamers to pass be
neath. Thus the undertaking, if
successfully carried out, would be
one of the greatest engineering feats
of its kind. The work will be under
taken and supervised by Japanese
High Prices For Old English Paintings.

that small horses will return a greater
amount of work than large horses for

A Breslau surgeon, Professor Miku
licz, wears gloves of fine thread in
performing operations, and declares
that this not only causes no incon
venience or difficulty, but makes it
easier to hold the tissues. The pur
pose of the gloves is to reduce the
chances of introducing troublesome
germs. Several changes of gloves are
necessary in long operations, and each
pair is made thoroughly aseptic in
steam, while the hands are washed
aod disinfected in the usual way. A
further recommendation is the use of
a respirator of fine muslin as a safe
guard against month bacteria.
An artificial black marble is being
made at Catania, Italy, and is said to
be much cheaper than genuine mar
ble, from which it is not easily dis
tinguished. It is made by impregnat
ing white sandstone with a mixture of
equal parts of volcanic asphalt and
coal-tar pitch. The sandstone blocks,
cut into the desired shapes, are sup
ported on gratings in a large square
iron tank, into which the molten mix
ture is admitted from an adjoining
boiler, the liquid being kept boiling
in the tank for thirty-six hours. After
cooling, the stones are polished like
other marble. It is claimed that the
new material will resist acids, atmos
pheric action, heat and cold, and does
not favor the development of germs.
Some Kentucky Superstitions.
It would astonish you to know the
number of persons in this State "who
are not superstitions but who do be
lieve in signs." While returning
Erom 'Western Kentucky last week I
sat talking with a party of seven men^
in the smoking compartment of a
Pullman car, when one of them pulled
from his pocket a "graveyard rabbit's
foot" which, he said, had always
brought him good luek. Another of
the men exhibited the feather of an
old gray goose which had been given
him by a colored charm seller in the
Purchase. The owner said he knew
the thing was a mere trifle, hut he
wouldn't part with it for any amount
of money. A third member of the
party had an old steel pen which had
been used by the Governor of a South
ern State in writing the pardon of a
condemned man. This non-believer
in "strange signs" said he prized the
charm higher than anything he pos
! essed, as he had succeeded ever since
he got it. The sleeping-car conductor
carried in his pistol pocket an Irish
potato, shrivelled to one-third its
tolmer size, which "never failed on a
rheumatism case." A fifth man had
this to say: "Fellows, I'm no believer
in those meaningless emblems, but I
can't help feeling badly if 1 fail to see
the new moon over my right shoulder."
The only two members of the party
who had not spoken left the car, smil
iug at the "vapid follies" they, too,
were doubtless believers in if they had
only expressed themselves.-Louis
"Why Ice ls More Slippery Than Glass.
Ice has the property-peculiar to
bodies which expand on freezing-of
liquifying under pressure and solidi
fying again when the pressure has
been removed. Consequently the
weight of any body moving upon a
sheet of ice causes the formation of a
thin layer of water, which separates it
from the ice, and thus, by reducing
the friction to a minimum, enables it
to move smoothly over the surface
i. e., make the ice more "slippery."
On glass, on the contrary, this liquid
medium is wanting, so that the two
solid and unyielding bodies come
ir to actual physical contact, causing a
friction, which, in spite of the smooth
ness of the glass, considerably re
tards tho motion of the body. If two
smooth sheets of glass be taken and a
few drops of water sprinkled over the
one and the other placed about it, a
thin layer of water will be formed,
and until this layer has been pressed
out the upper glass will move on the
other as smoothly as if on ice. This
peculiar property of ice is due to tho
effect of pressure in lowering the
freezing point of water, so that when
ever ice ia subjected to great pressure
it partially melts.-Brooklyn Times.
The Seat of Medicine.
The first medical college in this coun
try was that of King'B College, New
Yovk, founded in 1770, and tho earl
iest famous physician was Dr. Samuel
Macauley. He was sucoeeded in pop
ular estimation by Dr. Samuel Bard,
who attended President Washington
during au ilness ir. this city. He also
attended Fitz-Greene Halleck in his
childhood, which gave rise to tho
motto that "Halleck ought to be a
poet, as he was cared for in his boy
hood by a Bard."
David Hosack, who attended Alex
ander Hamilton after his duel with
Burr, wa3 another of the famous med
ical lights r-1 che beginning of the cen
tury. He was the forerunner of Bergh
and Gerry in founding a humane so
ciety. Dr. Samuel Latham Mitchell
was described by the sexton who
buried him ns "a man who knew
ovcrything on earth or under it, or in
the depths of ocean." He was, in
fact, a learned man, aud served at one
time as a Federal Senator. Dr. John
W. Francis was the friend and physi
cian of most of the literary set,
A notion just shown in Paris is a

shape, but all are novel. .
The New Muff.
The new muff of velvet is very large,
and made with frilled ends and lined
with satin or silk in some bright color.
The latest fad is to make the sides dis
similar. For example, one side has
five narrow frills of velvet, lined with
silk, and edged with a tiny puffing ot
the same bright color, overlapping one
another like the ruffles on a gown,
while the other side has only one
gathered heading. Lace is a feature
of nearly all the fancy mufTs, and it is
arranged in a knot with a fancy buckle
on one side, or in frills at the ends to
fall over the bonds.
Dutch Women Progressive.
More progress has been made bj
women of the little country ruled over
by Queen Wilhelmina in the last ten
years than perhaps any other nation
in Europe. In Holland women have
learned the advantage of co-operation
and organization, and instead of being
divided against themselves, as in
England, they have worked together,
with a result that they are winning all
along the line. .
They have formed a large number
of societies of a philanthropic charact
er, thus showing the useful and prac
tical side of the movement. There is, for
example, a society for assisting work
ing women to obtain homes of their
own; a society for arning the children
of poor working people; a society for
making flower and vegetable gardens
among the poor; a society for the aid
of sick working women ; a society for
the insurance of sick working women
and girls, and a society for the educa
tion of servants. Practical work of this
kind among women is tho best earnest
of the suffrage which will surely come.
Last year the Government passed a
law conferring almost au equal suffrage
upon women and making them eligible
to nearly all municipal offices. This
year, in token of this progress, Dutch
women will hold a world's fair at The
Hague, which is to be devoted solely
to the exhibition of women's activities
and industries. Side by side with this
progress of women's work there has
been an advance in the political field.

rounded by wrought silver and tor
toiseshell pattorns that make it seem
like some strange, colorless gem where
it glitters in the coiffure. That is the
latest and queerest, and is altogether
the moat Oriental of nil the styles that
ever struck a woman's fancy.
They can bo worn as high combs for
evening use or as serpentine twists in
the hair, or yet as Mercury wings with
the cheval glass either displayed to
add to the ornamentation or hidden
for use when the right moment comes
behind some palm.
No one n?eds to sniff at these deli
cious tricks, for they are really a boon
to every woman who has not grown so
finely spirituelle that she has risen
above coring whether her hat is on

probably ask in the face of appaling
Again do these adorable little things
come in the tops of umbrellas. The
top of the handle rises up at the touch
of a spring, and behold! there is a fine
French glass. In the space below a
powder box lies coyly concealed, with
a puff cosily hid in the midst.
The chatelaine has a small, bevelled
edge mirror, with a long handle (about
three inches or four), and is most ela
borately gotten up to aid and abet the
destruction of hearts.
And the innocent comfit box, or
bonbonni?re, glories in o secret lid
that when pressed back reveals the
woman's most truthful friend. If one
woman asks another, "Am I pale,
dear?" or "Is there a spot on my eye
brow?" ten chances to one that dear
will answer "No," all regardless of the
facts.-New York Herald.

Languages Number SOO.
The least learned are aware that
there are many languages in the world,
but tho actual number is probably be
yond the dreams of ordinary people.
The geographer Baldj enumerated 860,
which are entitled to be considered as
distinct languages, and 5000 which
may be regarded as dialects.
Adulguns, another modern writer
on this subject, reckons up 3064 lan
guages . and dialects existing and
which have existed. Even after we
have allowed either of these as the
number of languages we must ac
knowledge the existence of almost in
finite minor diversities, for almost
every province has a tongue more or
less peculiar, and this wo may well
believe to be the case throughout the
world at large.
It is said that there are little islands
lying close together in the South
Seas the inhabitants of which do not
understand each other.
Of the 860 distiuct languages enu
merated by Baldi, eighty-nine belong
to Europe, 114 to Africa, 123 to Asia,
417 to America, 117 [to Oceania-by
which term he distinguishes the vast
number of islands stretching between
Hindoostan and South America.-Tit
An Odd Prelate.
By the death of Mgr. Dnsserre,
Archbishop of Algiers, the French
Church loses a very remarkable per
sonality. He had not only been a
soldier before he entered the Church,
but had fought in several campaigns.
His manners were a singular mixture
of the sacred and profane. He enjoyed
the company of soldiers, and especially
of young officers, whom he would fre
quently invite to dino with him, and
afterwards, throwing off his long
soutane, amuse himself and them with
fencing and broad-sword exercises, in
which he excelled. This estimable
prelate and whole-hearted man was
greatly beloved in Algeria by all
classes and creeds. He succeeded to
the Archbishopric of Algeria in 1892
on the death of Cardinal Lavigerie.
He had, however, been Bishop of
Constantine since 1878, and was,
.therefore, as he used to say, "almost
an Algerian."-London Chronicle.
Longest Fence in tho World.
The longest fence in the world is
probably that which has just been fin
ished by the Erie Cattle Company
along the Mexican border. It is sev
enty-five miles in length, and separ
ates exactly for its entire distance the
two republics of North America. The
fence was built to keep the cattle
from running across the border, and
falling easy prey to the Mexican cow
punchers. Although it cost a great
deal of money it is estimated that cat
tle enough will be saved in one year
to more than pay for it. lt is a
barbed-wire fence, with mesquite and
cottonwood poles, and for the entire
length of it runs as straight as the

"I have seen a few blowing springs,
and I could never understand how
they are formed or Hie cause for the
outward current of air," said Bert
Magoffin, of Kentucky, at the South
ern. '"There is one at Brandensburg,
Ky., where the water coming from
the spring is strongly impregnated
with salt. There is sufficient breeze
blowing from the spring to be dis
tinctly felt and to blow a handker
chief quite violently. This breeze is
intermittent. There is another one
in Walker county, Ga., where the
water is fresh and the breeze is con
siderably stronger. It can be dis
tinctly heard for some distance, and
in the hottest weather it is sufficient
to keep a person cool and comfortable
around the spring. The opening in
the mountain where the water flows
is small, and when an-ear is placed
to this opening the wind can be
heard as though a strong breeze was
constantly blowing inside, while out
side not a breath of air may appear
to be stirring. I have never heard a
reasonable explanation of these phe
nomena."-[St. Louis Globe-Demo
