Ow- First Locomotives.
The drgt locomotives in the United
States were brought over from Eng
land by Bratlo Allen of New York
in the faill of 12!) or the spring of
18*0. and one of them was set up on I
the Delaware and Hudson railroad at :
Carboodale. Pa.. but, being found tce-:
heavy for the track, Its use was aban- I
doned. The frst locomotive construct
ed in this country was built by the 1
West Point foundry at New York In I
1830 for the South Carolina railroad
and named the Phoenix. A second en
glne was built the same year by the
same establishment and for the same
road and named the West Point. In
the spring of 1431 a third engine was'
built by the same establishment for,
the Mohawk & Hudson railroad from
Albany to Schenectady and called the
De Witt Clinton. This was the Arst
locomotive run in the state of New
York. The first Stephenson locomotive
ever Imported into this country was
the Robert Fulton. This engine was I
brought out in the summer of 1S31 for
the Mohawk & Hudson railroad. It
was subsequently rebuilt and named
the John Bull.
The Eaglet's First Flight.
H. B. Meepherson gives a dramatic
account of the frst fight of an eaglet
whose life from babyhood he had
watched. One day be ventured to the
edge of the clif contining his cradle
and looked about. Suddenly his moth
er swung past on silent wvings and
-tried to tempt him from his fast
sess." But he was unwilling or afraid.
Again the moother hovered round, and
a wild, weird cry rang through the
glen. -For the first time I had heard
the yelp of the adult eagle, the voice a
of the queen of birds callinr to her li
young. The eaglet cheeped continuous a
ly until he flapped to the very edge of
the abyss, listening to her call. And
now he. too, changed his cry, his voice
seemed to break. and the adult yell b
burst from his throat. The eagles
called to each other, yelp answering
yelp. The young eagle gazed round
him, spread out his giant wings and
vanished forever from my sight amongc
the ledges below. The eaglet had left I
the nest and had flown."
Baboons and Water.
In Captain D~rayson's "Sporting
Scenes Among the Kafrs" we find the
following: "Wel." said Kemp. "when I
I go into a country where there is not t
mueh water I always take my ha
boon." "You don't drink him, do you?' 1
"No, but I make him show we water."
"How do you do that? "In this way:
When water gets scarce I give the
Bavian none. If he does not seem
thirsty!I rub a little salt on his tongue.
I then take him out with a long string i
or chain. At first it was dif~eult to lo
make him understand what was want- Ifa
ed. for he always wished to go back n
to the wagons. Now, however, he is a
well trained. When I get him out
some distance I let him go. He runs
along a bit, scratches himself~, shows a
his teeth at me, takes a smell up wind. a
looks all round, picks up a bit of grass. ~d
sme or eats it. stands up for anotherh
sniff. canters on. and so on. Wherever
the nearest water is there he is sure to
go." _ _ _
The Tyrant In the Field
There have been few commanders so
tyrannous as Lopez. the dictator of
Paraguay, when, in the war of 1S63-70b.
it fought single handed the neighbor
ing countries of Argentina. Brazil and
Uruguay. Lopez. says Mr. W. U. Koe-3
bel in his "Argentina." was wont to
carry the theory of victory or death to ,'
an uncomfortable point. "dcers
'were executed for mere remarks
whose tone fell beneath the standard
of confidence that Lopez had set uz'
for sibf. One, for instance. was
shthaving announced in the V
cour; of his duty that the enemy was
strongly lz.enched! Another met his
end on account of an unguarded
speech to the effect that the Para
guayan army was accustomed to count
the enemy's losses and forget its own."

Trh Use of the Barograph on Aero
planes and Balloons.
What the compass is to the mariner
the barograph is to the avintor. The
arograph is an instrument for meas
aring altitudes. The l'ressure of the
ir as it increases or decreases causes
i delicate needle to trace a wavy line
apon a cylinder which revolves by
,lockwork. This line indicates not
=nly the exact height that is reached
by the aviator, but also the speed at
which he is traveling.
The barograph Is kept in a weather
proof box with a glass front, which is
ittached to a bar of the aeroplane or
to a rope on the balloon. It is oicial
y sealed before the aviator embarks.
io there is no possibility of tampering
with It. and the seal is taken off in I
the presence of witnesses at the end 1.

louder than that of the gun by his side.
The extra distance to the muzzle of
the big piece discounts the sound. The
only apparent difference between the

An Irish Grand Prix.
There was once an Irish Grand Pris.
The horse that lowered the French
colors was the property of an eccen
tric 1rishman narqed Conolly and was
z big. bony roan, aot much to look at
in the way of horsedesh. so it was a
J surprise to everybody but his
owner when he came in first. His
previous record at the English Derby
the preceding year had not been bril
liant enough for anybody to lay any
large bets on him, with the sole excep
tion of Conolly himself, whose faith In
his entry was so great that he mort
gaged his lands and put every cent on
the horse. Up to the very end of the
race everybody looked on Conolly as a
ruined man. but when the roan shot
first under the wire he not only carried
the British colors to victory, but won
a great fortune for his master. This
happened in the time of Napoleon III..
and Conolly was so proud of his tri
umph that he insisted on walking
ahead of the emperor and empress,
cheering and waving his hat.-New

Carpets and Rugs.
Carpets and rugs were originally em
ployed by oriental nations for sitting.
reclining and kneeling purposes during
devotioni. When Introduced among
the western peoples they were for a
long time used for purely ornamental
purposes, covers for tables or couches
and for laying before altars or chairs
of state upon great occasions. Carpets
were brought to E--rope by the Movrs,
but It was well into the eighteenth
century before they camne into any
thing like general use.
