Thousands of dollars worth of
chickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other 'diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
that positively destroys the Microbes
has been made. Half of the young
chickens are killed by Microbes
. before they are fryers. A jo-cent
bottle is enough for 100 chickens.
It is guaranteed. If, after using
two-thirds of a bottle you are not
satisfied with it as a cure for Chol
era, return it to the druggist from
whom you purchased it, and he will
refund your money.

place of the ordinary iron wire for tele

Storage battery traction is bein
rapidly pushed in Kcw Orleans. Tlnrty
cars in all are to be installed within tho
next few months. Thirty trucks aro
already mounted with motors and pre

The donkeys in some of the mines
through which electrical wires havo
been run have, learned that they aro
dangerous, and in poinj through the
mines show a marked intelligence in
avoiding the wires, thus proving that a
donkey possesses caution, if not any
higher mental quality.
The demand for rare elements for
the manufacture of incandescent gas
burners has greatly increased the pro
duction of several uncommon minerals.
Thus, according to the report of Mr.

The well-known electrician, Xikola,
Tesla, in taking part in a discussion on
alternating motors in the columns of an
English paper, made some remarks well
worth the attention of young electri
cians, lie says: You state that 1 have
misinterpreted my results, and it looks
as though you believe my views to be
unsound. Your arguments-are those of
an eminent scholar. I was myself a
fair scholar. Tor years I pondered, so
to speak, day and night over books, and
filled my head with sound views very
sound ones, indeed those of others.
I'.ut I could not get to practical results.
I then began to work 'and think inde
pendently, (iratlually my views became
unsound, but they conducted me to
A recent addition to the application
of electricity to mining is a portable de
vice for detecting the presence and na
ture of a mineral where the latter is
exposed in the rock or earth. The ap
paratus c onsists of a battery and spark
coil, whieh are inclosed in a box. and
the conductors end in two platinum
points. If the points be connected to a
conducting body and the circuit rup
tured, a spark will be formed, the flame
and color of which will give some indi
cation of the nature of the body which
the electrodes have touched. Thus, by
placing the two points against a rock
containing metal in a free state, its
presence may be detected by merely
applying one electrode and passing tho
other rapidly over the surface. The ap
paratus, which weighs about 10 pounds,
is arranged to be carried on the back,
and can be used to explode blasts in con
nection with electric primers.
Where the Watchi'H Go.
Where do all the watches go? Why,
every young man coming of age buys
one, and that alone is sufficient market.
There have been only 12,000,000 made
and imported into this country since tho
war. That is one watch for each per
son in five of our population. When
yon remember that vast numbers of
watches are stolen and melted down
every year, and smashed in accidents
or lost, and that the average life of tho
average watch is only about ten years,
you will see thai, the watch-making in
dustry is still in its infancy. Here is
another fact, that every panic sends 25
per cent, of the watches of the country
to the pawn shops, where about half
the watches are melted down for the
precious metal in the cases. The Jew

Who Hhvo No "AiireNtom."
Eight or ten years ago one of the
comic, weeklies had a picture showing
the Mayflower as it must have apprared
en voyage. It was loaded to the guards
and festooned in the rigging with
spinning-wheels, settees, high-backed
chairs, snuff boxes, candlesticks all
the vast store of impedimenta which
has since done duty in the heirloom
line. If the cartoon were to be pre
sented again the good ship would havo
to be accompanied by a flotilla of junior
May-flowers to afford standing-room
even for the hordes of forefathers and
foremothcrs who. according to to-day's
estimate, crossed in the historical ves
sel. Colonial ancestry is the craze
of the moment in the fashion
able world. Early English has
given place to early American, and
it is doubtful if the history of tho
founders of this Renublic had ever such
devoted and enthusiastic students as
just now. No debutante is worthy of
mention who has not a pedigree as long
as the feather boa which encircles her
graceful neck, and brides' progenitors
are presented in the printed accounts of
their weddings as far as the eye can
reach- and sometimes a little farther,
for, as an astute young belle justly ob
served the other day: "It's not so hard
to provide yourself with a Dutch father
or a Puritan mother. They're all dead,
anyway, and what is the use of being a
lineless orphan, with plenty of 'old
families' floating about in the dim past.
I advise any one, not otherwise provid
ed, to atlopt a good, respectable ghost,
and date from it. or him, or her,or what
ever the proper designation maybe."
Inch, of course, is flippant and frivol
ous, but rather suggestive, too.
IUwould seem that society simply had
to have a new rage. Anglomania is be
ginning to fall a little a London season
and an English Peer for a husband are
both now to easily secured to be seri
ously interesting; money is very com
mon; display has been done to death.
The pursuit of colonial lineage, while it
lasts, offers a diversion. Meanwhile it
is very amusing.

Took a Hand.
A few years since one of Uncle Sam's
frigates was lying in the harbor at Hon
olulu, and attached to it was a jolly, fat,
good-natured officer, a favorite with
every one. While this vessel was in
port the steamer from Australia came
in, bringing as a passenger, Hilly Emer
son, the negro minstrel, who was on his
way to California. Finding that llono-
lulu was a pretty good place he con
cluded to stay over one steamer.
Now, liilly's reputation as a poker
lover is pretty well known, and so is
that of his Majesty, so it did not take
long to set up a "little game." An ap
pointment was made for Hilly to meet
the King, and when his Majesty came
into the hotel he was accompanied by a
certain Colonel on his staff, who owned
a butcher stand in the town. In passing
through the billiard room his Majesty
spied our jovial tar, whom we will call
"Jim" for short, because that is not his
name; and. knowing his well known
scent for a battle, invited hiin to join in
When the game began it was Jim's
first bet. and he chipped up S3. The
Colonel came next and raised $10; then
his Majesty saw that and went $50 bet
ter, which made our lolly manner a
little faint; but when Lilly saw the last
raise and went $500 better poor Jim laid
down his hand and came out. Of course
every one wanted to Know what was

pression wo have yet seen on tlio road
question. lietlior the pusent As
sembly gives us a new road law or
not, the suggestions contained in this
ttrticle can he adopted by every coun
ty, every district, and every gang of
road hands in the State, and if thus
adopted and adhered to for a few
years, we would soon begin to see
marked improvement jn mr public
roads. Every road overseer in the
State should paste this article from
the American in his hat. It reads as
All legislation with respect to the
roads of this State will continue to re-
suit in nothing until the fact in appre-
elated that all the work and monev
appropriated to the construction of
roads must be, lost until a system of
finishing roads when once commenced
is adopted. When a road is once
properly finished the cost of keeping
it in repair is slight. On the other
Juind, all roads imperfectly finished
are necessarily soon destroyed. Tho
present system pours money and la-
or into gullies to be poured out at
the next Hood. Enough has been
thrown away on roads in this State
under the existing system to haw
niade every road in the State pt ifect.
And until the finishing system Issnb-
tituted the waste must go on and

making roads instead of patching
holes, by doing a little at a time and
doing it well every county could, in
a comparatively short time, make
every road a permanently good road
and all could be kept in good order
at little cost. There will be a practi
cal difficulty as we suggested, in put

Coul't of the natural rivalry and jeal

Every tisrsue of the body, every

use of Hood's Sarsaparilla.
The first bridges were of wood, and
the earliest of which we have any ac
count was built in Home, 500 II. C.
The next was built by Julius Ctcsar,
for the passage of his army across the
Rhine. Trojan's great bridge over
the Danube, 1,770 feet long, was made
of timber with stone piers. The Ro
mans also built the first bridge whol
ly composed of stone, that which was
thrown across the Tiber in the first
or second century A. P. Suspension
bridges are of remote antiquity. One
in China, mentioned by Kircher, was
made of chains supporting a roadway
ofSoOfeet in length. It was in the
year G5 A. P., and is still to be seen.
The first large iron bridge was erected
over the Severn in 1777. The age of
railways has brought about a remark
able era in this branch of engineering,
especially in the. construction of
bridges of iron and steel.
