OLD SALT AT THE PLAY,

Things were unusually quiet down the
bay )n(t nlghl, u 1 combed Dip salt out
of m.v Whlskets nnil went up town to
tlo n show, 1 tacked nbout In my shote.
IPjItth toRS until 1 aw n sign over 1M1'
tni-r'n theater rcndHis, "The Fatal Card,"
Tlmt caught me, for there's nothing o
, .tfaiiitj-; man loves so well h a fatal
ity, it It isn't hts own, unit I walks u
to tliu cubby hole In whnt they calls tli
lobby There w.is .1 nlcn-looltlng chap
ill there with his hair parted F.n-jllsh
captain fashion, anil 1 suit) to him
lie snld In a dejected way, "Ho Vll,"
nnd I couldn't pluck ti nei vo enough to
nsk him whnt Sort of iiu.irters 1 was go
ing to got for my ttiuiiy.
Wlu-n I Kni inside .mil hnd a you 11 it
mnn In 11 vi st that u.is nil shirt pilot me
to my mooiitiRs. I loiiiiit that the cut
tain was already tip ami tlmt there was
11 beautiful row going on In 11 barroom.
Thu pink chart tii it Hie yountr man
Kiive tin- said the barroom was out In
tiie Itockles. It looked it. but the piano
cm which 11 plump omir feiunle pliiy-d
wits so Ilk" 1 1-.- ones along the river
fronts In til! the pruts I've been that I
neatly yelled fur joy. The villain had
n canto of spirits aboard that almost
made me weep wi'ii envy, and when I
tot on to the drift of things and saw
they were going to lynch him, 1 envied
Iilm again, fur I don't want to die any
Hut the hero came In then and I could
ee from the line of determination char
coaled on his forehead that ho would
rescue the villain nml thereby put a
whole cargo of misery on himself for his
next four or live yeais' cruise.
And he did, you can't fool me on melo
dramas. H" came on in the next scene
where the villain was just getting swung
tip on a hickory yard arm, and not only
cut him loose but held back the lubbers
that had the tope until the villain had
time to put half of n Jack of Spades
(.n bis hand and stieak away on 11 loeo
'lnotlve that puffed like a low-pressure
'Thames excursion boat.
I missed the second act through try
lint to llgure out 111 Hang's Just how
much It took to make the villain so reel-rued
to iletith. but 1 saw the third act
mid It was a skyscraper.
The villain and his mate wanted to rob
mi old man. that It didn't surprise me
11 bit to tlnd was the hero's father, and
3 got around In my seat to where I could
see throuitb the topsail feather of the
full-rigged hat ahead of me to see the
fun. The old man had 11 Ilitht with bis
son and he was iiurh an old bully that
I'm blessed It I wasn't glad when the
villain's mate caught him a clip on the
Ticadpleee and put him In shape for
shark food. You see, I knew all the lime
that the hero would be blamed for It,
Tint I ain't such a lubber ns 1 used to bo
and I knew he would got out at the end.
Hut i hope I may forgot my compass
points If I didn't Ret really weepy-like
.when i saw that the villain's daughter
was In love with the hero and that it
was a case of leaving one or the other
to founder In the blow that was eomlnt,-.
The way she wept and backed and
filled was done so true that I forgot I
was at n play, and I piped up a little
salt water on my own account.
The last scene was a blood-Mirror,
and I got the worth of my money alone
In the Infernal machine that blew the
whole side of the thieves' den out and
killed the villain without hurting a hair
of the lover-' heads. Hut on my 111 xt
rtav oft I'm going UP there to show t In
land shark that ribbed up the piny how
no one could tie seven tttramls of lope
around any one In the way It's tied
around the hero. If he wants to learn
how to do the Job up quick and shlp
Bhape let him send a letter to me.
Electric lire Engine.
O.issier's Magazine: There can be little
question that an electric portable lire en
gine would be elll'-lcnt and thoroughly
practical were the question of current tup
ply settled, and were tt not that this part
ot the outfit. If properly Instnlleil and used
for its special purpose only, would ne
cessitate j.0 (treat an outlay of money.
lint It Is not absolutely necessary that
n separate plant should be InsUllcil for the
fie -tri engine system. Where a city or
district Is well suppll'd with electric light
ing, tailv-ay or power mains, distributed
falrl veil, ami nil of the same natural and
voltage these could be used for current sup
ljily by connecting them at Intervals with
(suitable tap or switch boxes, which would
be candy ncesslble, and to which the 011
1 Kino motor could be connected. It would
fnot be necessary to have thee switch
'boxes very close to (he water plugs, they
rcoulil be some distance away, and the
ruble, enrred by the enitlne, would be at
tached to the nearest one. The electric
supply mains and switch pious or boxes
would thus have to be only In the princi
pal streets and avenm s. The engine could
be connected to any water phut without
any regard to the lo -ntlon of the connection
boxes, as enough liexlble cable could al
ways be carried on the engine to permit
operating the engines at quite some dis
tance from tho distributing- mains.
GOING TO GHIGAGO TO-NIGHT?

More Than tlu.OOO.ilun Passenger,
Havo been carried by the Lake Shore &

(One of them recently said: "Tor sev
leral years past I have made from two to
fitfour trips each month between Chicago and
iKew York and am almost always uccom
fr.jianled by from ono to three or four others,
il believe (as I am Informed by your con

itwecn Chicago nnd New York than any
other on3 man during the past few years.

ful comparison with others t have found
not only that the road Itself is far superior

New Yoik, Feb. 2. Speculation on lin
stock nxchange to-day was generally llrm
In lone, but tho volume of buincst, was
light Thete was no speculative pressure
to tell and theie was at times fairly gouil
liiisiiii-ss. There was fcinall bulug for ihe
Loudon account, but not of sutllcleiu built
to affect the market. I'niou I'acllic was
piominent In the foreign buying and was
also a purchaser, the moving Intluence Ic
ing a belief that the Kcllly bill for the rel
tlement of the delit to the government will
become a law. Chicago lias was bough' by
traders who look for a change in the man
agement. The market was nimewhat irreg
ular in the llnal tradings and cloacd rather
Speculation during the early part of the
week was depressed, owing 10 a lomblne of
adverse circumstances, among which w-ro
continued heavy gold exports, the Improba
bility of the passage of the pooling bill, the
liquidation of American securities here and
in London by foreign holders, tho demoral
ization of the wheat and provision market,
the sharp rise In the rates for call money,
the appointment of receivers for tho whis
ky trust and the poor outlook for congres
sional action upon the treasury relief mat
ters. The cancellation on Ftlday of large or
ders to ship gold on Saturday, which was
due to a tharp break In the rates for ster
ling exchange, rendered gold exports un
profitable, which was a feature In ttlmulat.
Ing the market.
The bond market to-day was somewhat
Irtegular, but In the main llrm.

The Modem Miller of Saturday says;
I onsiderable dllTerenee of opinion exlt
In the minds of correspondent, as to Ihe
condition of wheat In the Southwest. Al
though the snowfall was heavy enough In
certain section,, advices fum many points
ndlciite that it wns not aenernlly heavy
by nny mentis, but, as n whole, the out
look l favorable. The demand for wheat
ror milling purposes In the Interior Is Ihe
most Interctlng feature of the situation
In Nnna. Mills ate willing to pay M to
51 cents for red nnd hard, which Is lel.i
lively 2 and 3 cetils higher limit the quota
tion ruling In the locnl mnrkt, and this,
of course, explnlns why receipt" nt win
ter wheat point, nt-e so small. There Is n
g-e.tt demand ror cnsli wheat, nnd It Is
"preaillng enstward, St. Louis scoring n
gain on legitimate line, through the medi
um of a call ror wh-at from millers. No
one Is looking ror an Iner ased movement
In the Southwest, A'thotigh marketings
or corn are light, thete Is no particular ile
mand, and this results In only apathetic
markets, Should the movement lncre.ie,
there l no question ns to n depreciation

.More I'rult, Miould lie l.'iiteti by the
Kroni llnrper's Weekly; Without cat
liiK and ilrlnkltiB there Is no life; but we
may select certain kinds of food con
tnlnlng 11 minimum amount of the ele
ments which cause the nsslllo blockages
In tho system. An English physician,
Dr. C. F. Do Lacy Evnns, who nindo
many researches In regard to our food,
comes tu the conclusion tlmt more fruit
should be eaten, especially npples,
gropes itml hamulus, they being rich In
nutritious elements. HcIiik deficient In
nitrogen, they tiro best fin- elderly peo
ple, ns they keep the blood In a better
condition than Ilcsh.
Floiirons, in his well known work on
Human Longevity, cites tho case of the
Italian centenminn Comoro, whose rec
ipe for health and long life was extreme
moderation In all things. Flotirona
himself Insists that n century Is thu
normal life, but that fifty years beyond,
and even two hundred years, are hitman
possibilities under ndvnntnKcotis con
ditions. Hiifclmid nlso believed In two
hundred years us tin extreme limit. Sir
.lames Crlchton lirowne.M. D concedes,
In 11 late address, that Flourens was
right. Duration of growth kIvcs the
length of life. Hllfelaiid held that the
human body grows till tho ago of 23,
and that eight times tho growth period
wns the utmost limit of mnn. Hut If
twenty years bo taken ns the time of
growth, even live times that will give
us a century. According to Floiuens
nnd Ciivler, man Is of the t'rtiglvorous
or fruit nnd nut eating class of nnlmnls.
like the gorillas nnd other apes nnd
monkeys. Man bus not teeth like tho
lions und cnrnlvorutiH bcasts.nelther hits
he teeth like the cows and herbivorous
ones. Intestines in the man are seven
or eight times the length of the
body; the lions are but three times
the length ot tho body. Herbivor
ous animals, like the cow, hnvo
Intestines forty-eight times the length
of the body.
So, judging: man by his teeth, Ills
stomach and his Intestines, he Is natu
rally and primitively frugivorous, nnd
was not Intended to eat llesh. Fruit Is
aperient, and apples net on the liver,
and are good brain food also, as they
contain much phosphoric acid. As to
tho effect of certain ollmates. perhaps
too much stress has been laid upon that.
V find that Thomas Parr, who lived in
England, died In his 153d year, and was
dissected by the celebrated discoverer of
the circulation of tho blood. Dr. Wil
liam Harvey (who expressed no doubt
of his age), was never out of his native
country. Accounts of men who havo
lived to extreme age in Ecuador and
Mexico Indicate possibilities. A climate
that allows much out-door living Is the
best for health. Exercise, fresh alt- to
live In and to sleep In, daily bathing,
and freedom from medicine are tho Im
portant things. In July, 1S93. the Courier-Journal,
of Louisville, published a
long account of James Mc.Mullin. who
died In Carlisle county, Kentucky, at
117 years of age. When Htiffon, Iltife
lnml, Floiu ens and men of that clnss,
who had studied the subject, believed In
the possibility of 1.10 or 200 years of life.
the subject is not 10 no laugucu in.
'lliey .May lti Pcrrccti-d, but Man Himself
Will N-er lie Able to l"ly.
From the London Dally News.
Mr. Hiram Maxim, the Inventor of th
famous gun which bears his name. Is a
llrm believer In tho possibility of so far
perfecting ilylng machines that they may
be used In warfare. He lias been explain
ing his views on this subject to a contribu
tor to Cm-sell's Sntiirdny Journnl, who has
been to see him nt his English residence at
Hexlev. Mr. Maxim thinks that highly civ
ilized 'nations, able to make und use (list
rule machinery, will In the near future
utilize flying machines In their armies.
This mode of warfare, he believes, could
be carried on In spite of nrmaments and
weapons of war, ns we undeistnnd them
now, nnd If one civilized nation used flying
machines In such a way, olhers would be
compelled to follow suit. At the same time,
he has no faith In navigable balloons, tho
whole thing being Inherently wrong. In
Frnnce.csiieelnlly.attempts have been mado
to navigate balloons, and vast sums of
money have been spent upon them; but no
balloon has ever been navigated against
even a very Ight wind.
Another point, Mr. Maxim thinks. Is this,
that man will never bo ablo to lly by en
ergy derived from his own muscles. A man
with sulllclent energy would have to weigh
seventy-live pounds, to havo forty pound
muscles to his 111 ins. nnd seventy pound
muscles to his chest, and be would have to
havo a breastbone twenty-eight Inches
