Monstrous Porco of Tornndocs.
Much has bepn wild about electricity
as a fnctor for destrnctivenpss in the va
rious gyrating storm clnniln known as
cyclonm, tlrechors iml tornudoes. In
nil of tliis voluminous mnss of so culled
scieiitillc opinions nnd dctliiftions one
fact seems to liavo been entirely over
lookedviz., tlio iilmoxt resinous force
of wind when moving with high ve
locity. When tlio velocity Is but fifty
miles nn hour tlio pressure of nir in mo
tion is equal to twelve pounds to tlio
Bquttre foot, und when this velocity rises
to J00 miles per hour its force rises to
the equivalent of 4!).3 pounds to the
square foot, the augmentation of force
being always proportional to the squure
of the velocity.
It needs no further elaboration or am
plification of this statement to convey
to the intelligent reader nn idea of the
monstrous mechunical force which such
a rapid traveling mass of nir must have
a power great enough to tear down
any structure that has yet lieen built by
man, or to nproot whole forests of the
largest trees now growing on the sur
face of the earth. St. Louis Republic.
One Sunday Ncwnpaper.
The Globo-Democrat of Sunday con
tained 43 puges and 291 columns. The
total number of words contained in that
issue was 508,000. The number of
"ems," counting the matter ns one-half
agate, oue-hulf nonpareil, was 2,852,000.
The number of separate pieces of type
handled by the compositor in preparing
that issue was 8,880,000. If the columns
of type composing that issue were placed
end to end they would form a solid col
umn of type 1,754 yards long, or, laid
in line, would extend from the Missis
sippi river to Seventeenth and Olive
streets. If the lines of type composing
that issue were placed end to end the
result would be a line of type 8,930
yards long, about 2 J miles, or extend
ing from the river to Vanderventer ave
nue. The words contained in that isstie
would make 21,803 book pages of 250
words each, and 83 volumes of 250 pages
each, with 143 pages over. To print the
issue of that one day required 48,752
pounds of specially prepared paper.

A Clever Reply from Cracker.
A big passenger train full of northern
people was temporarily halted in a
dreary sand plain where the only object
in sight was a woebegone looking
cracker sitting on a sand dune busily en
gaged in doing nothing. In the train
was a "smart Aleck," who thought that
he would have some fun with the
cracker. So he pnt his head ont of the
window and called out, "My friend, this
appears to be a pretty fine country you
"I reckon," replied the native without
looking np. "How much of a population
have you in this town?" continued the
mart Aleck as he winked at his friends
in the car. "Waal," replied the cracker,
" 'bout 10,000, 1 reckon, and nary a fool
among them. We did send for one last
week as a specimen, but derned ef we
thought he'd come so soon." New York

Not only are there a great number of

their value changes; for instance, on

Tha Loss In Gold Coin.
A remarkable example of the loss of
gold by reason of abrasion came to the
notice of the Chicago customs officials
the other day. George W. Sheldon &
Co. sent $19,000 in gold to the collector
to pay duties. The sum was in equal
amounts, made up of $3, $10 and $20
pieces. The teller found that the coin
footed np all right taken at its face
value, and it was sent over to the sub
treasury. Pr"ty soon word came back
to the collector that the $19,000 in gold
was $1,939 short weight and the deficit
would have to be made np before a re
ceipt would be issued. Examination
proved that the coin bad been abraded
to that extent nearly 18 per cent. Bos
Looking for Ills father.
Recently a westerner 6 feet 6 inrhiM
tall, with broad shoulders and weighing
over 200 pounds, nppeared at Titusville.
He was William Ferguson, of Ran Fritn
cIhco, and was in search of 1 1 in fa
ther. His parents were married near
Salamanca, N. Y., thirty-nine years ago,
and a few months before William was
born his father deserted his mother, who
wns then a little more than sixteen years
of age. Ferguson never returned, and
his deserted wlfo eventually went west
with her boy and marriod agnin. Within
a short time past she told him for the
first time the story of his father. Wil

toward the father, but desired to sio
him, and on learning subsequently that
ho was still living came east to find him.
He was informed that the old man wns

In his search he found a woman who
said she had been married and deserted
by Ferguson, and was working to sup
port herself nnd two children. The
searching son finally got on the right
track, and securing hero a man to go
with him drove to the vicinity of Mc
Graw Center, located in the woods,
somo miles from Titusville. There, in
a tumble down shanty, living alone and
with apparently nothing to live on, ho
found his long lost father. Williiin.
concealed his identity, and tfio old man
was drawn into reminiscent conversa
tion, during which ho took no pains to
conceal the fact that his first wife was
living in the west. Then the son miulo
known his identity.
The shock of surprise caused the old
inon to swoon. Then tlio son, who ib
well educated und in good circum
stances, offered to take the father west
with him and contribute to his support.
The old man declined, and the son left.
The son is now in the vicinity of Titus
ville, and hopes to persuado the old man
to return with him to the west. Cor.
Death of a Recluse.
The bachelor hermit of Clinton coun
ty, Owen Mulligan, has paid the debt of
nature and joined the great majority
upon the other shore. He was a re
markable man. He emigrated to Clin
ton county npward of a half century
ago and accumulated a neat fortune
there. Ho was at the timo of his death
worth $100,000. The hermit reached the
ripe old age of ninety years. He lived
all alone in a modest .'armhonse a few
miles from Aviston. Many years ago
robbers broke into the farmhouse, and,
believing there was money hidden there,
they tortured the hermit to make him
give it up. His feet were burned black
by tallow caudles, but he kept his secret.
After that he purchased a shotgun and
prepared for robbers.
A few years later he was awakened
one night by robbers in the house. They
bad forced an entrance into the house
through a door and were hunting for the
hermit with drawn revolvers. He lev
eled his shotgun at one of the robbers
and pulled the trigger. The villain's
head was literally blown off. The other
robber escaped. The dead man was
never identified, and he was buried by
the county. Owen Mulligan's fortune

A Yauth Who Would ttm Happy In Life.
There is one young gentleman in Lon

He took the young lady he was engaged
to to the Lyric theater on Monday even

next box was another young fellow,
handsome and dashing, with whom the
young lady established a lively though
surreptitious flirtation. Young fellow
No, 1 protested in vain, whereupon he

the young lady has never seen or heard
of him since. All parties are well known

William Penn'a Treaty Tree.
History records that William Penn
made his treaty with the Indians under
an elm tree on the banks of the Dela
ware. . The aged tree blew over in a
storm many years ago, but young ones
from it are believed to be in existence.
In the hope of preserving this historio
spot the city of Philadelphia has re
cently taken possession of two acres of
ground in the midst of which this tree
formerly grew, and some young speci
men that has a clear and undoubted rec
ord as being the descendant of the orig
inal tree will probably be planted there.
The plot has been taken in accordance
with the recent small park movement.
While p-eserving historio associations

banks of the river for a dense manufac
turing population, of which this is, in a
measure, the center. Providence Jour

The Action of a Spinet.
Tho spinet instrument wus an improve
ment upon what was known as the clavi
jhord, the tone of which, although weak,
was capable, unlike that of tho harpsi
chord or spinet, of increase or decrease,
reflecting the finest gradations of the
touch of the player. In this power of
expression it was without a rival until
tho piano was invented. Tiie early his
tory of the clavichord previous to the
Fifteenth century rests in profound ob
scurity, but it is said that there is one
bearing the date 15'J0 having four oc
taves without tho D shnrp and G sharp
notes. Tlio spinet was tho invention of
tho Venetian SpineMn.
Tho action is unique. Tho instrument
is similar to a s.mall harpsichord with
one string to each note. The stringsore
let in vibration by points of quills ele
vated on wooden uprights known as
jacks, and the depression of the keys
causes the points to pass npward, pro
ducing a tone similar to that of a harp.

The Titlea of Books.
A book title, like a woman's face,'
ought to be pretty. And if a bewitch-'
ing, diaphanous veil, in the shape of a
slight curiosity rousing cloudiness of
meaning can be thrown over it, so much
the better. Readers delight to be half
taken in by books, just as men do by
women, so long and vhis is a most im
portant proviso so long as their vanity '
is not piqued. The object of a title
should be to seem simple, artless, naive
and quite naturally charming, but this
as in the case of so many of its feminine
analogues is often to be attained only
by the most consummate art. Black
Two Greatest of Stamp Collectors.
The two greatest stamp collectors in
the world were M. Philippe Ferrari, son
of the late Duchesse de Galliera, and the
czar, whose collection is said By experts
to be worth 8,000,000 francs. He began
to make it when he was czarowitz, and
has been adding to' it ever since. M.
Ferrari, who cast away a fortune, or
rather several fortunes which he con
ceived to be ill gotten and said he had
no right to inherit, hoards stamps as
misers hoard money. He has quantities,
which he says will be valuable to his
heirs should he live to a great age.
