particularly interesting little machines.

A large party of foreign agricultural

North Dakota, saw some harvesting
operations in that great wheat country
a few days ago which must have opened
their eyes, accustomed as they are to the
small acreages of Europe. Driving
through a vast wheatfield bounded only
by the horizon, they beheld as many as
43 twine binders moving in a steady pro
cession half a mile long and cutting
great swaths of grain.
They were told by the owner of this
farm that in harvesting time he cut a
square mile of grain in a day and em
ployed 80 men to shock it up. At noon
the visitors sat down to a prairie chicken
dinner on a mammoth scale, which ex

A Just but Lenient Judge.
An unusual incident occurred in the
city court at Savannah a few days
ago. Judge McDonnell was tardy in
putting in an appearance, for which he
fined himself $10 and then promptly re
mitted the fine. His honor went to* see
his physician to have his arm, which he
recently injured, dressed, and the doctor
kept him a little longer than he had
counted on. When he entered the
courtroom, the hands on the clock above
the judge's desk pointed to just 10 min
utes past 10.
Judge McDonnell took note of the fact
and said: "In accordance with the rules
of this court every officer who comes in
late is subject to a fine. The clerk will,
therefore, enter a fine of $10 against the
court for tardiness, to be paid into the
registry of the court. Owing to the
fact, however, that this is the first time
this thing has happened, and also that
the court had to be detained in order to
have its arm dressed, the clerk will re
mit the fine."—Baltimore Sun.
English Taught In French Schools.
The French minister of public instruc
tion has issued a circular which will have
the effect of greatly stimulating the
study of the English language in France.
In all the higher schools and training col
legos the compulsory studies hitherto
have included two modern languages,
one of which must be German. This or
der is now annulled.
Two modern languages will be the rule
as before, and one will remain at the op
tion of the pupil, but as to the other he
can choose between German and Eng
lish. Moreover, the time given to the
study of German is reduced by two
hours, while that devoted to English is
increased by tho same length of time,
and pupils will begin their English les
sons one year earlier than hitherto.—

Warrington dying shortly after his
second venture into matrimony, Mrs.
Warrington kopt the diamonds in defi
ance of the family of her predecessor,
who claimed them as the deceased wom
an's heirs. Suit was brought against
her, but she declared that her husband
had sold them shortly after they were
married and that she had no property to
to make good the loss even if she were
liable for the act of Mr. Warrington.
This story was not believed by the
first Mrs. Warrington's family, who
maintained that the woman still had
them in her possession, and soon after
her death, which took place some weeks
ago, the nurse who attended her in her
last illness testified that the day she had
died she had her bring her a box filled
with unset genia, which she deliberately
swallowed one by one, passing away
a few moments after she had got the
last one down. The family now wish to
disinter her body and to open it for the
recovery of the diamonds, but her own
people, not crediting the nurse's story, re
fuse to allow what they consider a dese
cration of the dead.—Lincoln (Neb.) Let
Pcffer's Currency Scheme.
Brief mention has been made of Mr.
Peff er's latest bill, but brief mention can
hardly do justice to it.
Its title is "A hill to advance learning,
the arts and sciences and promote the
general welfare by founding a college of
scientific learning in the District of Co
lumbia." The bill consists of 19 sec
The first provides for a department of
education under the control of a secre
tary of education. The second provides
for the construction within three years
in the District of Columbia of a college
of scientific learning, in which shall be
taught all the classical and professional
studies and arts and sciences necessary
to give students a knowledge of the
highest courses appertaining to such ed
ucation and learning.
Another section appropriates $20,000,
--000 for the cost of constructing the col
lege and providing it with the necessary
appliances. The eighth section appro
priates $800,000,000 to be carried to the
credit of tho fund, the interest thereof
to be applied monthly. The fourteenth
section provides for the purchase of
aluminium for coinage of the currency
to the amount of the appropriation.
The coins are to be 1, 5, 10, 25 and »0
cents, and $1, $5, $10, $20 (and multiples
of $20). This currency is to be the legal
tender for all debts, public and private.
Longest Track Laying This Year.
tub longest, stretch of track laying
done thus far this year has just been
completed by the Minneapolis, St. Paul
and Sault Sts. Marie company in the
extension of its line from Cathay, N. D., to
Sterling, on the international boundary,
a distance of 182.4 miles, all ironed since
last spring. At the boundary lino con
nection is made with a branch of the
Canadian Pacific, now building from a
point west of Eegina, about 160 miles
long, which will be completed in Sep
tember, thus making the Soo line an im
portant part of a new route from St.
Paul and Minneapolis to the Pacific
coast, and inaugurating a competing
line which may greatly disturb existing
conditions. No work of railway build
ing in 1893 is likely to be more far
reaching in its effects than that which
virtually extends the Canadian Pacific
system to the Mississippi river.—Rail
