Its use for the points of trold pens

price of platinum, the better known
tin white, ductilo, but very infusible
metal, is on a par with that of gold,
namely, about $3")0 per pound. Hut
generally its value fluctuates between
its more popular brothers, gold and
stiver. The rarest iietal and it is
so rare that recent discoveries have
thrown doubt on its elemental char
acter is didymium, and its present
market price, if one may thus term
the quotation of an article that never
appears on the market, is $4,500 per
pound. The next costliest metal is
barium, an element belonging to the
alkaline earth group; its value is
$3,750. Beryliuin, or glucinium, a
metallic substance found in the beau
tiful beryl, is quoted at $3,375.

BUILT FOU TI1K PRESIDENT.
The Home In Philadelphia Intended j
to Be the Executive Mansion.
When Congi,e88 in 1780 decided to make
Philadelphia the Beat of the Federal
Government for the decade between 1790
ami 1800 the pulse of the city was
quickened and great anticipations of re
newed prosperity were indulged in. The
public mind did not dwell upon the pro
posed temporary stay of the Government.
Indeed, it was generally believed that
when once fixed in Philadelphia the Presi
dent and the Departments would remain
here rather than remove to tho vvilder
ness along the Potomac.
Accordingly steps were at onco taken
by tho State to provide a suitable domi
cile for the head of the nation, thou, of
course.General Washington. After much
investigation and labor the committee in
charge of procuring an eligible site selected
a piece of ground on the south side of
Market street, west of 9th street, then in
possession of the Markoe family, who
owned tho entire block between Market
and Chestnut streets, facing on 9th street,
and extending nearly to 10th street. As
stated above, the corner stone of the house
was laid May 10, 1702, with great cere-
nil my. It bore tho following inscription :
"This cornerstone of the house to accom
modate the President of the United States
was laid May 10, 1792, when Pennsylvania
vas happily out of debt. Thomas Mifflin,
Governor of the State.
Tho superstructure was of brick, and
cuts of the building yet extant show it as
a large, gloomy affair, isolated and far out
of town. A flight of wide marble steps
led up to the great doorway. Tho main
building was three stories in height, with
a tipacious basement, and a flat roof in
closed with railings, no doubt intended for
a promenade. A lantern or skylight was
placed in the center. Side buildings not
so high or pretentious are also shown, to
gether with a yard containing larches aud
other trees, separated from the, street by
the regulation high brick wall yet to be
seen in many places in this city.
President Washington never occupied
the structure, his declination to do so
being based upon constitutional reasons,
according to Mease, while Watson says
the cause was that Congress refused to
furnish it throughout, and Washington
could not altera to do so out of his pri
vate means. Accordingly he took a house
in Market street east of Cth street, and
the great structure at 9th street remained
untenated. In 1829 the trustees of tho
University of Pennsylvania, who had
purchased it, razed tho building and threw
tne exact site into the campus upon
which faced the buildings of the medical
and arts departments. Iu 1872 these
buildings in turn were taken down and
the present postoffice started. Philadel
The inventor of leathern artillery wa3
a certain Colonel Robert Scott, a Scotch
man in the service of Charles I, of Eng
land. He constructed guns of hardened
leather, and experimentally tried them.
The result was that they were pronounced
superior to guns made of brass or iron.
But the colonel did not live long to enjoy
tho great triumph of his invention. Ho
died in 1031.
In the very year of the colonel's death
the effectiveness of his leathern artillery
was amply proved on the memorable
field of Leipsic, where, Septemler7, 1631,
Gustavus Adolphu3 achieved his splendid
victory over the Imperialists undei
uenerai liny, ii is saia mat it was
owing to the invention of Colonel Scott
that the victory was obtained.
The guns were found to be so easily
carried that a small battery could lly froi
one part of the field to another, and tlnif
artillery be brought to bear where iins.
needed a thing impossible with the hoavy
artillery of that period. Certain it is that
leathern artillery was used in this great
battle by Gustavus, though it is equally
certain that the guns were never used
afterward. The reason of that, however,
was that the leather guns having demon
strated tho value of light artillery, a way
was discovered of making the metal guns
lighter, and the greater durability of the-
latter gave them the superiority. "
Something for Nothing.
The world is full of people who want
to run before they know how to walk.
Such people are the ready prey of sharp

pet something for nothing is exhibited
in a very amusing way.
A young mau afflicted with this fail
ing was offered a situation in Peru, but
iitwn investigation it- was found that
some knowledge of Spanish was requisite.
"Devote a year to the study of the
language, and you will become suffi
ciently proficient to be useful," said tho
But that was too slow a method for
the aspirant. He spent three months iu
trying to devise a shorter plan, until ono
day he saw an advertisement stating that
directions for learning any language iu
24 hours would bo sent for the small
cum of $2.
Ah, here was the solution of tho prob
lem! He sent tho $2, and in reply re
ceived this printed slip :
"It is extremely simple. Just divido
the language into 24 parts, and learn ono
each hour. "
He deserved to be thus humbugged.
Let us hope that he profited by his lesson.
