To Find the Horsepower.
A rule for finding horsepower of a
pulley is to multiply the circumfer
ence of the pulley in feet by the revo
lutions per minute, and the product
thus obtained by the width of the belt
in inches, and divide the result by 600.
The quotient will be the horsepower
which the pulley is capable of trans
mitting. This rule is foi' i lod o-i the
fact that good, ordinary oingle leather
belting, with a tension of fifty-five
pounds per inch wide, will require fifty
square feet of belt surface passing
over the pulley per minute for one
horsepower. Fifty square feet per
minute are equal to a belt one inch
wide running 600 feet per minute

Dr. Bacon, a New England clergy

friend with some pronunciation which
was not "according to Webster."
Webster lived in his parish, and the
doughty old divine was not disposed
to be snubbed with the dictionary
"What right has Webster to dictate
my pronunciation?" he demanded
haughtily. "He is one of my parish
loners and ought to get his pronuncia

Mark Twain's Ant.
"Mark Twain in one of his amusing
books of travel attacks the ant," said
a nature student. "He ridicules the
idea that the ant is industrious and
wise. He devotes three or four pages
to an account of an ant making Its
way homeward with a burden. He
shows the ant climbing grass stems
Instead of going round them, doing a
hundred silly things, taking in every
case the long and foolish instead of the
short and sensible way home. And
hence, naturally enough, he concludes
that the ant's wise industry is over

Twain's ignorance being granted, for
he was unaware when he wrote that
long and interesting passage that many
kinds of ants are blind. He did not,
for all his close observation, take up

ALARM IN PHILIPPINES.
Natives Aroused by Talk of War With
Manila, March 1.There Is general
surprise here among the Filipinos at
the recent action of the United States
senate in defeating the amendment,
offered by Senator Culberson, to the
act establishing an agricultural bank
In the Philippine islands, declaring
the intention of the United States to
abandon the islands as soon as a sta
ble government should be established.
The progressivists express satisfac
tion with the sentiment of the ^amend
ment, but deplore the time selected,
in view of the Japanese war talk,
which has caused excitement in the
provinces surrounding Manila. In
some instances the inhabitants Jeft
the towns and hid in the mountains.
One town was depopulated recently by
the exchange of salutes between war
ships, which caused the idea to spread
that the Japanese were entering the
bay. The commission is doing its best
to allay the alarm. Commissioners
Tavera and Legarda made special
tours of the provinces, explaining the
Japanese situation, and quiet was
about restored. The people were,
however, still in an excitable condi
tion when news of the action on the
Culberson amendment came. The na
tive newspapers regard the action as
inappropriate, as the war talk was
bringiug the Filipinos closer to the
Americans. The effect of the action
on the amendment is likely to cause a
