There are now about $6,000,000 Invested
in the manufacture of electric motors in
the United States, and this large invest
ment has nearly all been made within the
last three or four years. It represents
either theindeendent investment of com
panies engaged in the exclusive manufao
ture of motors, or an increase in the capi
talization of companies that manufacture
electric light appliances, and find the con
struction of electric motors a good anuxil
iary industry. Some of these companies
employ many hundred men, sometimes ap
proaching a thousand; and they turn out
motors almost innumerable each year.
These motors are of all sizes, from
one-half horse power for driving sewing
machines and such other light work. up
to several hundred horse power, for heavy
work. They are becoming a driving force
in almost every industry. and can be util
ized in localities where the cost of obtain
ing fuel would almost equal their operat
readers have already been made
familiar with the names of some of the
towns and cities in the United States,
nearly fifty in all, that have adopted, or
are preparing to adopt, the electric motor

to horses or cables The systems in use
in someof these places are very extended,

A BUCCESUFUL RAILROAD.
Recently a road twelve miles long was
opened in Richmond, Va., represented by
its managers, in a letter published in The
Electrical Review, to be a road of peculiar
difficulty in operating on account of the
sharp curves and dificult grades. Some
of these grades reach the maximum ever
overcome by motors depending on the ad
hesiveness of their wheels to the tracks.
and in the length there are no less than
seventeen curves around right angled cor
ners. Yet the managers write with the
utmost enthusiasm of the successful
operation of the road in every particu
lar. The carse of the road, described as of
a very elegant pattern, are not only pro
palled by electricity, but they are lighted
by electricity, which naturally follows,
and when the cold weather comes they
are to be heated by electricity, in accord

the curve a dam, built entirely across the
river, will throw the water into a tunnel
several miles in length which empties into
the Dark canyon, the waters of the canyon
in turn emptying into the river at the
lower end of the horseshoe. A water
wheel and electrical generators are to be
located in the canyon one mile, or a mile

these generators will proceed an electri

mountains to the dam, will follow the

This conductor will be eighteen miles in

all. These motort will supply the power
for all the pumping. hauling and hoisting

after the water has been drawn from the
bed of the stream. The cost of operating
the motor can beeasily estimated. It will
take a man to tend the water wheel, and
another man to look a(ter the conductor
and keep it in order, and this, plus the

of no particular concern in New York,
where men have learned to be weary of
the very word capitol. But this Kansas
capitol is to be built by electricity. There
are four electric motors at work on the
building lifting the bricks,- stones and
mortar up to their places, and handling
the stones again into position on the walls,
They are said to do their work admirably.
ELECTRICITT IN A MILL.
Away out in Laramie. Wy T., there is
a company known as the Laramie Milling
and Elevator company This company
has a mill capable of producing 100 bar
rels of flour a day. and the only visible
source of power Is seen in a couple of
little eccentrically shaped Iron cases down
in one corner of the roller floor. But
those cases are twenty.five horse power
electric motors. The manager of the com
pany, under the recent date of April 8,
gives a glowing account of their perform
ances. Among their points of excellence
he refers to their uniform rate of speed:
the ease with which power can be placed
where it is wanted, obviating the necese
sity for long lines of shafting or still
more objectionable belts; the economy of
room for power plant; the saving of from
80 to 80 per cent. in insurance rates, and
the saving on first cost of plant. The
motors, he says, require very little atten
tion, and give better service with vary
ing loads than any other power that could
The chief secret of the rapid advance of
this new mechanical agent is found in the
flexibility of its resources. Electricity is
not the generator of power, but only the
agency for its transmission and distribu
tion, as it is an agent for the transmis
sion of the human voice over the tele
phone wire. Through its resources power
can be distributed to any point, and in
quantities to suit the customer. Steam,

REAL ESTATE OXYGEN. d
Something In the Atmosphere That takes a
Chicago People Buy Iteal Estate.
Talking with a broker on the question
of trade and weather he gave expression
to some very peculiar ideas, for this same C
broker, though prominent on the street d
and very successful, has a wonderful im- t
agination, and frequently expresses him
self in the most visionary manner.
On this occasion he said "I can tell you
what the trouble Is; it's the air for a dead i
certaidty I have watched this market a
for years, and have seen some queer
things. Under ordinary circumstances
rain and snow have their effect upon the
real estate market, but there are times a
when they do not. Say, did you ever read t
Dr. Ox's experiment? He way the chap. e
you know, Jules Verne writes about as c
having stirred up the quiet little Dutch
burg and set the steady going old resi
dents in commotion by the aid of oxygen.
Well, I want to tell you that in a minor
form that very thing is transpiring around
us every once in a while. There is cer
tainly something in the air that makes
people buy real estate. I feel it very+
quickly. The moment I get out of bed
some mornings it seems as though I could
not get to town quick enough; and all the
way in there is a sort of suppressed eager
ness to buy acres and subdivide them. I
fairly have a craving to buy land.
"Well, as sure as shooting, when I
reach the oifice I notice an activity among
the clerks that is unusual, and I also no
tice that people begin to flock in They
do not struggle in, one at a time, and go
out almost immediately, but they crowd
the office and they buy lots, too, and when
they do finally leave it is with a sort of
hungry look at the maps and plats as
though they wanted more. You can laugh
and think I am a crank. if you like, but
it's a fact, all the same. Why. I at
tended an auction sale of lots one day
when I had this 'bunch' to buy I tried
to keep away. but I could not. Some big,
bald headed fellow, with a voice like a
broken down calliope, was acting as auc
tioneer, and had got the crowd in"iaughing
humor by telling funny stories, but evi
dently that was not what they came out
for and they began to howl for the sale to
begin. The sale did begin. and so did a
rainstorm, but it had no more effect on
that crowd than a gentle breath of wind;
everybody had the fever, and we all stood
there in the pelting rain bidding and buy
ing until the big chap said he was cleaned
out entirely and had no more lots to sell.
This atmospheric boomer comes very sud.
denly at times.
"I remember another sale I happened to
be at where the crowd, though large.
seemed apathetic, loggy tnd lifeless, the
salesman was doing his best, and it was
uphill work for him, only a stray bid here
and there reaching his ear. I was lean
ing against a tree, as listless as the rest.
when, in a twinkling, all was changed:
life and animation had taken the place of
lethargy, and the bids were rolling in
thick and fast. I knew what it was, for
I felt it sweep over me and surge through
my frame like a charge of electricity-it
was the real estate oxygen, and, so far as
I was concerned, I bought thirteen lots in
the next twenty minutes. What I am
telling you is right, and no funny busi
ness, and the only regret I have now is
that the epidemic does not strike oftener.
I'll tell you what would be a good scheme
If some of those invention fellows, like
Edison, would get up a machine to store
this stuff and let it off upon proper occa
sions what real estate booms could be in
augurated; but we have no such machine
yet, and have to depend upon the fitful
fancy of nature for a supply, and nature
has evidently got her back up at Chicago
real estate men, for this strange and ex
hilarating air has been denied now for
many weeks. Let us hope for a speedy
change. "-Chicago Herald.
Milliners Advertisements on Broadway.
Those physical wrecks of men who pace
wearily up and down Broadway with pla
cards on their fronts and backs, and famil
iarly called sandwich men, are not the
only persons who promenade as advertise
ments. Comelier advertisers are several
girls sent out by leading milliner and
dressmaking establishments. They are
models chosen for perfection of face and
figure, clothed in the newest and most pro
nounced costumes or bonnets, and then
sent out to walk in Broadway and Fifth
avenue. The girls selected for this par
ticular service are those who have been
for several years used in their employers'
stores as models on which to show off
goods to wealthy purchasers, and thus
have become known to those customers so
well that, on being seen in the streets,
they are instantly recognized. Thus the
freshest wares offered for sale in those
particular shops are announced under the
most favorable circumstances. A dress
or a bonnet seen out of doors on the per
son of a beautiful girl is, of course, pow
erfully recommended, and no doubt that
the manufacturers who have resorted to
this novel method of announcing their
novelties find a good profit in it.-New

A Crowd of. Celestials Leaving San Fran- cc

Set of Passengers-Little Waste in Feed
The Oceanic Steamship company's of- n
feie was crowded the other forenoon by
Chinamen anxious to avail themselves of 0
the reduced rate of passage by the Cansa
dian Pacific steamship Abyssinia Two
hundred and forty took passage by her
and sailed about 12 o'clock. Many held
off to the last minute in tue hope that bet-.
ter terms might be made, but the agents u
were inexorable. t
"Don't you fumigate the office after the
China steamer leaves?" asked a Hawaiian
dude, who struggled to the counter

to secure a passage to Honolulu by the s

no deadheads in the Chinese passenger
trade, no round trip complimentary tick.

States gold coin and no credit."
CHINESE SEA LAWYERIS.
Happening along at lunch, the lead
thus opened was followed. "See the
Abyssinia lot of Chinese?" asked the dis
penser of hospitality at a neighboring
lunch bar. "Seem a queer lot. Give a
great deal of trouble, most likely. That
kind always do. There are cripples and
broken down men of all kinds among
"Have you had experience in that
"Yes, for years. I have been employed
in the Chinese trade quite a long time,
but I have quit the sea. These fellows
will have an armory with them. They
are quarrelsome and dangerous, and there
are always sea lawyers aboard to stir up
trouble. They tell the ignorant coolies
their rights, and if we were not prepared
to fight at the drop of a hat it would be
all up with us and the ship. We gen
erally manage to keep them under."
"What is the rate of passage?" asked
a reporter who happened to be present.
"Twenty-five dollars and whatever we
can get for freight."
"Are you in for a freight war?"
"Can't tell. Know only what we are
-Does $25 passage money pay the

a little pinched, but they had enough.
Up to 800 a fair average of the cost is
ten cents per head daily, above that the
average lowers I think the Pacific Mail
figures on twelve cents, but that depends
"What kind of food do they get?"
"Chiefly rice. We take twenty-six dif
ferent kinds of chows. We take white

beans, green beans-every kind of beans;
orange peel, sauces, dried shrimps, dried
fish, dried abalone, although they get lit

live pounds of fresh beef will go as far
with 100 Chinamen as with five white
men They take a big mess of rice and a
small piece of fresh meat, which they lift,
bite off a small morsel, and return to the
dish. Then they pitch into the rice with
their chopsticks and sample the sauces.
They are fond of salt pork and salt meat.
Fresh meat goes further. They should
never get salted meat or pork."

find out what the trouble was, and then
brought down the chief officer. The rice
was not cooked to their liking.

the rice will be thrown overboard.'
"We could not move. We were sur

Up to that time the coolie is busy filling

"You have only to give the Chinamen
plenty to eat and you have no trouble,"
said an attentive listener. "I was in
Hong Kong when the Abyssinia came in
three trips ago, and she had trouble about
the food. She then sailed from Victoria.
The other vessels seldom have any bother
of that kind."
'You think that ten cents per day
covers the cost of the food supplied on
shipboard to each Chinese passenger?"
"Yes, I do. It costs less, with care,
when the numbers are large tlhan when
there are few on 'board. There is very
little waste, I assure you. It is not a

Without the Middleman's Aid.
Every morning there comes to the house
in which I live a fine, hale old man, with
the fresh scent of country lanes about
him. who brings an abundant supply of
vegetables, of a quality one can only find
in the most expensive green groceries and
fruit stores. He makes a business of
serving the products of his little market
garden across the North river to a choice
list of customers in certain apartment
houses of the better order He sells all ii
that he can deliver, and the prices he it
gets, while reasonable enough to satisfy
his patrons, are sufficiently liberal to
compensate him handsomely. There are
other men. I notice, who make a specialty
of milk, eggs and other fresh table com
modities, which they deliver after the
same fashion, directly from their farms or
poultry yards. They pay no tribute to a
middleman, nor are they under any ex- j
pense for a city shop. They begin by
drumming up custom in good houses, a
and., as they serve the best of material,
are not long in establishing a profitable o
connection. After this it is plain sailing
The business of putting up preserves
and jellies seems also to be extensively
followed by rural housewives, who seek
their industry in much the same way.
Some of them advertise in the family pa
pers. The majority employ a drummer
to beat up custom in town. The fact that
they can afford the expense of advertise
ment or the salary of an agent, and still
make a greater profit than if they sold
their products to the shops, may serve as
a slight hint of the proportions of gain
that fall to the middle man or retailer. A
man in Fordham who has quite an ex
tensive fruit farm, which, thanks to his
passion for improving varieties, produces
some of the finest fruit in the country,
informs me that he now gets nearly three
times as much for the product of his or
chard, which he retails himself, than he
did when he sold it to a fruiterer. And
still his customers get it cheaper than
they did from the 'fruit shop.-Alfred
Trumble -in New York N'ews.
Race and Mental Disease.
In an article entitled "Race and In
sanity," published in The American Jour
nal of Insanity, Drs. Bannister and Bek
toen, physicians of the Illinois eastern
hospital for the insane, express the opin
ion that there is little doubt but that
insanity is influenced by race. From the
statistics of three institutions in which
insane persons are treated they draw the
following conclusions: 1. That in the
white race the depressive types of mental
disease are most frequent in the Germanic
and Scandinavian peoples, and least so in
the Celts; the reverse of this appears to
be the case as to the exalted or maniacal
types. 2. That general paralysis is not a
disorder to which any race is immune, but
sne that depends upon causes independent
of racial or national peculiarities. 3.
That the well known fact that insanity is
much more common among the foreign
born than among natives in this coun
try is not to any great extent explainable
by the shipmcnt of the defective classes
of Europe to America.
The "cranks" and epileptics and other
neurotic individuals do not appear to be
represented, in due proportion even,
among the foreigners in our asylums.
The cause of the excess of foreign born
insane in this country is, it seems proba
ble, to be looked for mainly in the fact
that, supposing the immigration to in

During the first day of our excursion
our quest was rewarded with nothing in
the shape of deep wood sights or tenantry,
though the very earth seemed filled with
songs and calls of negritos, mayitos,
cabreros, zorales, totises, chinchinguacos,
solviros, pioreras, savaneros, canaries and
mocking birds, which frequent the more
open districts and plantation trees and
hedges; but as we neared the denser
forests, along towards nightfall, we came
upon a little settlement of people well
worth going a long distance to know
These were the Cuban carboneros or
charcoal burners As all of the cooking 1
and much of the manufacturipg requiring
heat in the Cuban cities are done with
charcoal, charcoal burning provides a sort
of a livelihood for a small and picturesque
class, who fell timber and burn charcoal
at will in the countless island forests.
These carboneros comprise some queer
people. Most of them are inoffensive and
hospitable, but many are refugees from
the late revolution, for the Spanish
soldiery deem it wise not to disturb any
body in these almost inaccessible haunts
So, aside from insurgent refugees, in
nearly every carbonero's camp will also be
found, if you happen to be in company
