One of the very llrst nltempts at making
nn iron stove lias by Count or Cardinal
I'ollgnas, of rrance,arl In the eighteenth
century. Tho results of his efforts wera
simply Iron flriplacis, constructed with
hollow backs, hearths and Iron Jambs,
tho only improvement It showed ovet tho
old llreplacu was In a slight saving of
heat. In the ear 171S Dr. IHsnugllers, of
.ondon, Improvid the i'ollgnuc ilreplaces
10 such an extent that they could be used
for burning coal as will as wood.
Dr. l'r.inklin'8 move. Invented In tho
year 1715, was a great Improvement on

constructed weru Mmllur to the airtight
Moves Introduced many ji-ars latci. In
deed, it Is hcllewd thut had It been pos
sible at that lime for founders to make
tight-tilling castings tho Crankltn experi
ment would have been airtight. Abouftha
year 1770 (thiro is some dlsputo about the
exact date) Dr. Franklin Improvid his
stove so as to make It dutiable to tlie con
fciunptlon of common bituminous ioal. In
17SJ Henjamln Thompson (Count Itumford)
made several linpiovements on 1'iunklln'a
designs. In 1W-! J, L. Mott made the llrst
siovu that would burn anthracite coal.
Since the last named date hundreds of In

stove up to Its present perfection, St.

Ilaltimort- Hun; A dialogue about heaven
took place a few d.is ago between a mein
br of the llaltlmoro county bar and a
Udy K jcars old, who was under examin
ation In an ttiulty cae. The lawyer, to
test the I.nij'B faith In tho hereafter, aked
her if sho thought we would know each
other In heaven, Sho replied by asking
hlrn unother fiuestlon uh to where heuwii
was. Ills reply was not tatUfaulory to tliu
old lad), as she told the Uwjcr that If he
wanted to iUcstlon her about an) place ha
must locate It. Then she added; 'Of
course, we will know each other In heaven,
for our bodies will be the same there, ex!
(vpt that we will not have any blood in
us." The luvvjer next asked her If kIiq
thought people would have teeth In heav
en. She said she could not answer that
definitely, but she thought the) would.
One thlnir was certain, she added: "Peo
ple would have teeth In the place allotted
to the wicked and she could prove it by
Scripture." "How can ou prove It?" said
the lawyer. "Why," she replied, "the
Scripture says the wicked sbull be turned
Into utter darknex, where there shall be
weeping, walling and gnashing of teeth,
and how could the) gnash their teeth If
they did not have any?" The attorney did
not proceed any further on that Hue of

"Certainly1" was the rrpi), as was to be

It happened one da) that a prett) )Oting
widow, traveling t) train from Louisville,
lo Nahvllle, had tnken her seat near a
newly married couple The bridegroom
left his wife for a moment, and when ho
returned the train was passing through a

fusing to bellevo that It was an accident,
sued the .voting husband for a thousand
dollars, solatium to her wounded feel

There is given as an example of the

It appears that a rather different view pre.
vails In Judicial circles A oung man who
had assaulted a )oung ladv In this way
In the stieets of a village near Ctrecht
was brought before the burgom istet. who
took the mattir up, demanding that the of.
fendei should be lined one llorln, or, in
default, be Imprisoned for one day. Hut
the Ctrecht court, ind flnallv the appeal
court at Amsterdam, both dismissed the
case, tne judges declaring "that to kiss a
person cannot be nn offense, as It Is In the
nature of a warm marl: of svmpathv'"
This Is pretty much like the Yankee Judge
who dismissed a similar ouender. remark
ing that the plaintiff was so temptinglr

himself down In his ch lit with both
hinds he felt so much Inclined to get up
and kiss her himself.
A stolen kiss once brought the culprit
Into possession ot n fortune, lie was a

had him prosecuted for assault He was

hoivever, had a very dlflerent experience,
and paid heavily for his momentary freak
of kissing a lady on the Hl.17.1 without her
permission. She pioecuted him. and tho
magistrate, as Indignant as the lad), sen

Tills severe penally Senor Talc 1 t onsidi red
