Dr. Nosslor thinks that thu ordinary
Mdhod of sulphuring empty wino casks
allows many germs of mold to escapo
destruction, and that if it ii frequently
repeated sulphuric acid forms and at
tacks tho wood. Casks should bo well
rinsed with cold water between each
operation. Hot water should not bo
used, tin it bus a tendency to orodueo
bodies that are disagreeable- both to tho
nostrils and tho palato. Tho writer con
siders that the application of a waah of
6ulphurio acid, a quarter of u pouud to
ono hectolitre- of water, would be very
Thfi lovo of dress keeps everybody on
the strain. The poor strain to keep up
with tho well-to-do peotilo; tho well-to-do
btrain to keen with the rich; and tho
rich .strain terribly tokevp up with ono
another. The only ones exempt from
the pressure aro tho few who are too
fully pauperized to have any social nin
bition, and the very few at the other ex
treme who aro too rich for rivalry. Wo
muy add a third cla.H, composed of
sensible persons who abstain from this
itisano competition on principle. Two
questions absorb our women. Tle firt
is. What did she -wear? Tho second is,
What dvl it cost? It is not so much a
matter of good, las to and of true and
tcsthetio effect, but badly and coarsely a
question o wst. Diamonds are prized
uot so much for their beauty as for tho
money they represent. If tho husband
and father should show signs of worry
because the outgo exceeds tho income,
it cannot be helped one must keep up
with the neighbors, put on tho steam!
it is a fast age, and it will not do to fall
into the rear. Drive on. Tho crash
may conic, but let us have a pood time
tit. We must keep up with tho time.
Broken fortunes, debt, bankruptcies are
not the only and tho worst fruits of this
folly. There is something worse than
squandering money. A noble woman
is of more valuo than a colossal fortune.
This rago for costly dress takes the
heads und heart, the time and tho tal
ent of a vast number of our wonieu who
were born for belter llanos They aro
ruled and absorbed by the jeweller and
the milliner, They give their days and
nightj to dress. They become niero
bulletin boards of fashion, and their
high and noble calling is forgotten.
Krupp's Now Guns.
Novel artillery cxpeiimonta of an ap
parently highly important character
took place a few days ago at Messrs.
Krupp's great shooting ground near
Mepoen, says a correspondent of tho
London Staiulanl. Trials were made
with both now cannons and projectiles.
A new shell, called a "torpedo shell,"
was fired from a 21-centimcter gun.
This shell is stated to afford a practical
solution to a problem which has long
engaged the attention of artillerists,
namely, to construct missiles which, af
ter piercing the objw I aimed at, shall
cxptodu with torpedo-like effect. Uf tho
new guns experimented with thu most
important v,as the pivot cannon, special
ly destined for the equipment of gun
boats. The pivot, upon the top of which
tho cannon Is fixed, is prolonged right
down into tho hold of the ve.ssH, where
it is turned, and so moves with it tho
camion nbove in any direction. This
contrivance, it is asserted, quite obviates
any rebound, even after the firing of u
heavy charge. It also contributes great
ly to insure tho success uf aim, and at
the same time gives increased velocity
to the projectile. The pivot system mav,
it is stated, even when tho guns are of a
huge bore such as thirty-l'ivo or forty
centimeters be employed for tho equip
ment of small gun-boats. It is estimated
that the cost and equipment of each of
these pivot gunboats would uot be more
than a tenth of largo frigate, and it is
insisted that they would bo far more ef
fective instruments of destruction, on
account of their swiftness and tho facil
ity with which they are managed-
Catching Orauua with a Hook.
On a recent trip to Leo county, Ga.,
Wo saw some uovel fishing done. It
was iu a lake or pond which abounded
In small lush, and which was constantly
visited by Hocks of cranes for the pur
pose of feeding on its finny treasures. A
nondescript littlo darkey was engineer
ing the scheme, and In an easy way ac
complishing a feat otherwise difficult for
q practical nimrod to do. Ho did the
work In this way: Putting a live roach
on a hook near the shallow water, ho
would retire to a safo distance und await
results; tho birds would return, and
very soon one would mako for tho fish
ami swallow It, after which it was eiusi
ly taken. Americus liccontcr.

Tho Man on tho Veranda. 1
Up on Park street the other evoningy
says tho Detroit Fne Pro-, tho boys
fixed up a straw man in an old suit aud
placed him on a veranda in tho melan
choly twilight. He hadn't been in posi
tion above ten minutes when alonr'
came a specimen who hud been blasted
out of the lower stratum of life, and ho
leaned his elbows ou tho fence and call
'Good evening, mister. Is this tho
place when,' they wanted tho back yard
The straw man mado no reply.
"1 think this i.s tho place," continued
the other. 'T was n speaking to tho lady,
ayid she said as how I was to call this
evening for ten cents, being as sho pitiod
my mUfoi tunes." " ,
The straw man was silent.
"Which was very kind of her indeed,
because 1 am powerfully broken down.
1 may be wrong, but I dunno. I'll bo
on hand early in the morning. I alius
likes to keep my word, you know!"
It thu .straw man knew ho didn't lot
"Yes, she said she felt for me, and sho
said I must be sure to call for tho ten
cents. Being as you aro her husband I
presume you might laud mo tho money
Still no response.
"In which case my gratitude would
bo eternal, you knoiv? Cast thy bread
upon tho waters and it shall return fifty
per cent., or somo such thing. You
couldn't mako it a quarter, could youP
That would bn n cast worth casting,
you know. Tho profit on that after
many days would bo half a dollar, you
It i.s doubtful if tho man saw. '
"Being as I'm in a littlo hurry, and
being as I haven't had anything to eat
in several days, perhaps it would bo
well to close this transaction at onco. If
you wanted to make it half a dollar in
stead of a quarter, why I"
Just then a potato ticked tho way
worn traveler's ear, and another raised
his hat several inches. Ho bounded to
tho center of the street like a cat, wheel
ed around, and peering through tho
darkness he called out:
"Mister, three minutes ago I lookod
upon you as a great statesman, but a
man which will heave rocks instead of
arguing tho question hain't fit to run a
yaller dog convention! Good night, sir!
If you have that 'ere back yard cleaned
it'll bo after you havo apologized for
this uncalled for attempted assassina
tion!" Old-Time Ohurch-Slooping.
It is more than two hundred years
ago that the Rev. Dr. Samuel W hitting
was minister in Lynn, Mass. At that
time one Obadiah Turner kept a journal
nnd wrote therein as follows: "Allen
Brydges hath been chose to wako upyo

proud of his place must need havo. a

who will have their naps iu timo of sor

ho may prick such as may bo most

trotted ttbout ye meeting house, ho did
spy Mr. Tomlins sleeping with very
jnuch comfort, his head kept steady by
being in ye corner ami his hand grasping;
yo rail. And soo spying, Allen did
