A chomlcal mixture is said to havo
been discovered which makes a safe
burglary easy. The burglar needs
only a diamond-pointed drill and a
bottle of tlio mixture. With tho drill
he bores a hole into the plate, and into
the cavity thus opened he pours tho
mixture. Ho then plugs up the hole,
and concealing all trace of it as well
as possible retires and leaves the
chemical to do its work on the inte
rioroftho plates. A couplo of weeks
maybe icquircd for this, depending
somewhat upon tho make of
safe operated on. At tho
end of the proper Interval the
plates will be found corroded to such
an extent that they can be easily cut
through without tho necessity of any
noisy liammerlng or hard work of any
kind. So far as can he learned no safes
havo yet been robbed by this cfl'cctivo
compound, and tho New York paper
which describes Us workings an
nounces that tho secretof Its manufac
ture is known only to some burglars of
that city who are now experimenting
on steel plates with it. One would
suppose they would like a practical
demonstration of its usefulness, and
would try It on a wife occasionally,
Tho Idea of corroding safes is not now,
but the art has never been brought to
a very hiidt point of perfection, and
whenever it Is the public will doubt
less find it out by its works.

Sluart Cumberland, Esq,, of Eng

through his physical system. I do not
claim any supernatural aid, hut can
traco all tlio workings of my system to ,

first subject whom Mr. Cumberland,
took to work upon was ex Mayor ,
Green, of whom ho asked tho question:
"Aro you pretty well known lu this
city iT The genial doctor equal to tho
occasion, replied. "Well no, not par
ticularly," wnion remtvrii caused con
siderable merriment among tho com
pany. Mr. Cumheiland's mutliod of
proceduro Is as follows: Ho allows
any perwm to chooso mentally any
object in tho room aud tells this per
son to fix their jnlud entirely on tho
object chosen, then taking tho hand
of thu person ho will lead him
to the object chosen with iv quick
ness and certnlnty absolutely won
derful. Mr. Cumberland will thus
locate a pain lu n person's
body, pick out places which havo been
touched by a coin, find tho person who
had tho coin, and finally discover tho
coin, which has in tho meantime been
concealed, Another difficult trick
which was permi-nted, was the discov
ery of nn object without having any
physical connection with tho person
acting as the subject, but connected
simply by a wiro from tho hand of the
subject to the hand of Mr. Cumberland.
He nlso traced tho rate of u coin with
si pencil, aud finally picked out ah ob
jeat, a small metal turtle, and stood It
on Its head, getting his cue solely
from the sublcet upon whom he was
operating. Tlio various tricks of the

Tho lion work Is now being turned out
at Coatcsvlllu, aa the supvrstrueturo Is
to bo of iron entirely. Tito floor of tho
hall, vestibule1 and library will be laid '
with polished oust Iron tiles, In which J
dilll-rcnt qualities of Iron will
bo used to produce tho same
variety of color as in ordinary
tile flooring. All tho other lloors of '
tlio houso will bo of stout Iron plates
firmly bolted to the Iron Joists. The
out-slde wall and Inside partitions all
through tho structuie will bo Mini
mised of two courses of iron plates
firmly bolted together, so as to be air
tight. Those hollow Iron walls and
partitions will bo mod Instead of chlin
ni'Vfl and for conveying heat to differ
enl parts or tho house and for ventila
tion. The hot onioko and gasscs from
tlio furnaces passing through the sides
of the rooms In tills way will, it 1
claimed, be almost sufllclcnt to keep
the houso emu foi table, iu the coldest'
weather, so that the heating can ho
done with about one-half the fuel le
(iii I red In oidlnary houses. Al
tlio doors and window hashes
will also be Iron, but will bo
coiiRtrueted in nuoh a light way '
and no nicely balanced upon hinges and ;
AvelghtM as tn open and shut us easily'
as those inado of wood. All tho In-
side w'nll and partitions will be hand-"
somoly painted and frescoed po no to '
present tho appearance of an oidlnary
hoime finished in plaster. Oritslda the
stylo of architecture will bo light und
graceful, and It will bo painted and"
ornamented so as to look as if It whs''
built of wood. Tho roof will bo of
strong hoilcr-plato, and on the top at
the convergence of the four gables, '
will bo a liandHomo observatory sup
ported nt tho four corners by
lour Jonlo plllais of Iron. Inside
tho ornaments will bo nitulo of tho
same material. In the pin lor will
he a mantel of polished steel, hand
comcly oinauicnted. There will boa
similar one In the dining loom, upon
which will be engraved hunting
fccuned. In the library will lie a mas
sive mantle so constructed that It will
look as If It worn made of pig iron
fused together. (Julto a cuiloslty In '
this loom will ho u cabinet for the ex
hibition of specimens of Iron. This
will be consti noted entirely of strongly
magnetized Iron, so that all the speci
mens will adhere to the back QflOield
in place solely by magnetic attraction.
In order to guard against tho bung
ling which would lake place In such
a solid iron Mructoro on account of
tlie contraction nnd expansion caueed
by tho heat and cold, thero will ho
breaks in tho iron at intervals, which
will bo lilted -with rubber, so that
when expansion takes place thcio will
bo loom for It without producing any,
hnugoin tho contour of the .frame
work. Ah much as jionslblc of the fur
niture will also bo of Iron, so that If it t
take file lu any pari nothing can burn
but tho carpets and the few urticles of
wood that may be within reach of tho
flames. The house will be an archi
tectural ami sclontlfld curiosity. Mr.
Huston admits that it will cost twice
or three times as much asauy ordinary
house, but claims that with a little at
tention It will last for centuries with
out iopalr, mid will never cost a cent
for insurance, JteaiUnp ('.) Jfrytc.
