SOUTHERN STANDARD-MCMINNVILLE. TENNESEE.-SATURDAY, MAR. 14,1801
The Largest Eank Checijue.
Considerable controversy has re
'.'Mitly arisen about the 'larcsl

same tiift' stated that one drawn Iy
Vanderbilt for 700,0(10 had hitherto
headed the list. The statement, how
ever, is inaccurate, says the Bullion -1st,
of London. At least four of the
London clearing hanks have paid
cheques for considerably over .2.000,-
000 on more than one occasion. A
few years ao the Manchester Ship
Canal Company, when buying out
the Bridgewatqr Trustees, drew one
cheque for l,7o0,000 on Glyn & Co.,
and this document ean still be seen
at the offices of the Ship Canal Com
pany, Deansgate, Manchester, where
it is framed as a curiosity. A cheque
for an enormous amount passed
through the "house" in 1879 or 1880.
The amount was upward of .3,350,-

Voltaic Belt Co.,
This name has a curious history. It
was not at first given to the children,
and even a man had to earn it before
he could have it.
When the ancient Germans fought
with the Romans, they had only light
weap i.-i. The Romans were well
arnit I, protected by armor too, and
most 1.1 them wore a gilded helmet
to shield the head. Whenever a Her
man succeeded to kill a well-armed
Roman who wore one of these gilded
helmets, the helmet was put upon
his head and, he was ever afterward
known as Goldhelm, or, as we would
say, Golden Helmet. With the
French this was called Gilheaum,
shortened toGuillame; and with the
Lutin-speaking nations Gulielmus.
Finally the French Guillanie became
uillame; the German Gilhcm is
Wilhelm, and the English William.
Here it is, and it fills the bill much
better than anything we could pay

An inventor has just patented a pa
per vest. I'apec, as is well known is
a non-conductor of heat, and the new
waisicoat is said to be an excellent
tiling to wear when the theritiou.e
tcr is below zero. One of the most
singular of recent patents is a rock
ing chair washing machine. The
rocking-chair, which is placed in a
tub in which are water, soap and the
clothes to be washed, has a rack on
its rockers piovided with a grooved
roller. The washtub has projections
on its vertical ends, and allows of the
full play of the rocker of the chair.
The result of this arrangement is the

The best helper in trouble, the best
guide to the erring, is not one who is
utterly unnerved by the distress
which his sympathy causes him.
Like the skillful surgeon, his head
must be clear and his hand steady if
he is to probe to the seat of the troub
le and administer efficient relief.
Mr. James Lambert, of New Hruns
wick, Illinois, says: "I was badly
alllicted with rheumatism in the
hips and legs, w hen I bought a bot
tle of Chamblelain's Rain Balm. It
cured me in three days. I am all
right today and would insist on ev
ery one who is atllicted with that
terrihle disease, to use Chamberlain's

Hv far the deepest lake known in

the great Canadian lakes as regards
size; for while iis area is over 5)000
square miles, making it about equal
to Erie in supeificial extent, its
enormous depth of between 1000 and
4")00 feet makes the volume of its
waters almost equal to that of Lake
Superior. Although its surface is
1350 feet above the sea level, its bot

Caspian lake, or sea, as it is usually
called, has a depth in its southern
