A queer and intelligent Norwich ani

belonging to the Norwich Horse Rail
way company. For several years she
has done duty on the hill, and knowa
quite aa much about the business of
running horse cars as any other em
ployee. She has no driver. After break
fast she trudges up to her station at the
foot of the Franklin street hill alone,
and when a loaded car comes to climb
the steep grade voluntarily takes her
place in front of it and helps to drag it
half a mile to Rockwell stseet At
that point the driver relieves the bill
horse, and she goes leisurely back to
the bottom of the hill. Sometimes she
goes clear down to Franklin square,
where the cars are started, and exceeds
her duty by helping the other horses
along the route before the hill is
reached. Connecticut Cor. New York

There Is no doubt that Maude's great
grandmother would be shocked at the
"goings on" of these latter days. The
old lady would faint at tho sight of het
descendants' ways: bnt. after all. Isn't
the change for the lietter? Certainly
the dress is lietter than the terrible

Mamie does go "low neck" to a ball, she
sppears on the street In n stout cloth
gown. How any woman ever lived to
be thirty in ye olden time is a mystery.
Why, the way they tramped about in no
sleeves and low neck ami fasted them
selves then and fed (supposedly) on
lilies is enough to make a galloping con
sumptive invalid pale with envy.
Kvelena, pale and languid, read poetry
all day, except when she floated about
like a sylph in the rose garden. It is
bad to rashly judge, bnt one's private
opinion is that tho aforesaid Evelena
had her chunk of lieef In the pantry.
Why did Evelena spend all (lay in it
rose garden? Was she snp)Kised to lie
studying the beauties of nature, or had
the old man really sent her out to spray
the bttgs off the bushes? .
Another weakness of Evclctiu's was
her relapsing on all occasions Into
"floods of emotions" and "tears of sweet
sensibility.' In fact, one is tempted to
believe that she wandered alxmt clothed
in "her regal beauty" and an old palo
green calico wrapjier. But one fails to
find a reason for her "emotions. "
Doubtless theywero kept "on tap,"
and didn't lose their sparklo by frequent
turnings of the spigot. But it must
have lieen real nncomfortablo to sit up
at night learning how to weep and faint
just at the right tiino.
But Maude irreverently thinks the
"goings on" of her grent maternal an
cestor u trifle stupid, and there is no
doubt that shu finds the "healthy" fash
ion far more enjoyable than the "dying-in-leafy-June"
style of lieanty. Then
Maude walks, rides, drives, goes boat
ing nud plays tennis till the blister on
her nose murmurs of "cold cream."
Still she enjoys it, and would yon change

Fliynlclana anil Thoir Drugs,
The active competition for a living
that the physician in New York has tc
encounter has resulted in a curious
method for stimulating trade. There
are doctors in this city, graduates in due
form and no doubt in many cases men
of ability, who remit all fees for consul
tation, relying on the profits they obtain
from the medicines they prescribe for
emolument. Certain standard prescri
tions they have pat np in quantities, and
these they sell directly to the patient.
Where a prescription has to be com
pounded the patient is sent to a certain
drug store, at which the doctor has an
arrangement for his commissions.
Between these two device the prac
titioner really captures a reasonable fee,
and he gets it, moreover, in cash, where
he otherwise might have to give credit,
with a strong show of loss, for though
patients will not dream of demanding
credit for medicines, they make very
small bones about leaving the doctor's
bill unpaid once he has permitted them
to run it np. New York Cor. Pittsburg

fanaa Advantage of tha Torpedo,
There is a very widely, diffused idea
among people who have not made a -Special
study of the subject that torpe
does, and torpedoes alone, can defeud
any harbor against a hostile attack.
The destructive effect of a few tor
pedo explosions nnder the most favor
able circumstances have caused this
branch of warfare to assume nn nndne
importance, an importnnce wholly un
warranted by the result and created by

limitations of tho efficiency of any tor
pedo system, however jierfcct.
It is the object of this article to en
deavor to show the actual capabilities of
torpedoes, the result attainable by their
use, and the restrictions inevitably at
tending their indefinite expansion into a
complete system of defense.
Great gnus must play an Importiint '
part in all harlxir defense, but for the
proper and adequate defending of navi
gable chennels Ixmyant mines, exploded .
by contact, are the mainstays.
With their nso, however, a host of per
plexing condition arise, the twisting
and wearing of tho cables and moorings,
the depression due to the current, the
danger of sympathetic explosions, the
leaking of tho cases, the obstruction of
the channel for friendly navigation all
these have to be overcome as best they
Where a port has several navigable
channels, and it is practicable to sacri
fice 0110 or more, their closure y moans
of self acting torpedoes is easy.
Where a channel, however, cannot be
entirely abandoned, self acting mines'
are useless, for In order to be thorough
ly reliable they must lie as dangerous to
a friend as to an enemy. Furthermore, .
their planting, and much more, their re
moval upon the cessation of hostilities
is to lie accomplished only at great risk.
The limited applicability of ground
mines is well known. Torpedo science
furnishes two other types for harbor do-,
fense; the buoyant mine and the dirig-
iDie torpedo, niinougn me lutter proper
ly forms a distinct class.
Great nicety in planting torpedoes
cannot be expected, and this fact, cou
pled with tho inevitable shifting of tho
mines from various causes, leads direct
ly to the conclusion that a great num
ber of mines must be relied upon rather
thau precision in their manipulation.
Despite the number of mines, u vessel
attempting to pass tho lines inuy still
fail to strike a mine hard enough to
work the circuit closer. To meet this
contingency a perfect torpedo system
must provide means for firing the mines
at will in group of three or four. It
will always lie possible to accurately lo
cate a vessel within a dangerous spacer
of thisnumlierof mines, and their simul
taneous explosion will have the desired
To furnish a passage for the electric
current many cables are needed, and to
avoid confusion some regular method of
pluntiug must bo adopted. It is con
venient to plant the torpedoes in groups '
capable of being fired by judgment,
these groups constituting tho units,
which are combined into the larger unit
whose limit is generally the number of
mines that can be operated through a
single seven core cable.
The grand groups thus formed are ar
ranged in lines, the latter radiating iu
such a munuer from the operating case
ments that the separate nnits can be
easily located by triangulation. The
intervals between the lines are filled with
skirmish lines single mines strung on a
single conductor cable and exploding by
Many forms of movable torpedoes for
harbor defense have been tried in differ
ent countries with varying degrees of
success. For accuracy of direction and
range of destructive power the Sims-Edison
fish torpedo is perhaps unexcelled.
Extended trials at Willet's point have
satisfactorily demonstrated its ability to
carry 200 pounds of dynamite to a dis
tance of two miles at a speed of about
twenty miles per hour. The charge is
exploded upon contact with the vessel
or by the action of the operator on shore.
The dirigibility of the torpedo is per
fect. It follows its prey as though
endowed with life, swerving to the right
or left as necessary, diving under booms
or other obstructions, cutting through
nets, and nevor slackening its great
speed until the end of its cable is
reached. At present a two mile radius
is deemed sufficient, although this could
be increased if necessary by enlarging
the "fish" itself. Cosmopolitan.
