in Russia everybody speaks to you
in a free and easy way, from an im
perial minister down to a moujik,
says a contributor to Leslie's Weekly.
I had not been on the train for Mos
cow five minutes before I was ac
quainted with a professor, a student
and a business man. We all talked
indifferent Frenh, but we got along.
The carriages are on the boudoir sys
tem; that is, the cars are divided into
little rooms capable of seating four
and of giving each one a bed for the
night. There are also special sleep
ers. The aisle runs down the side of
the car, and each little room can be
closed off from the rest of the world.
It is only $6 from St.' Petersbnrg to
Moscow. The sleeping accommodation
is better than on the Pullmans-not so
frightfully indecent and uncomfort
able.
When I reach a city I take a cab to
the hotel. Then ride about in the
street cars; then visit the prominent
features, as, for instance, in Moscow,
the Kremlin; then saunter among the
shops and try to pick up ideas. The
Russian language is not so difficult to
pronounce. It is the grammar which
is hard. The alphabet contains 36
letters, but two of these are mute;
one is used only in two words of the
whole dictionary, and several are pre
cisely the same is Greek letters.
Some of the letters are entirely differ
ent in sound and the same in shape-
for instance, h equals n, p equals r
and b equals v. Thus, h-o-b-o-e spells
Novoe. It looks like "hobo"-a tramp.
It is one of the head-pieces of the
leading Russian paper, the Novoe Vre
mya. I was spelling out laboriously
a sign in Russian when I found that
it spelled "Thomas Smith" (a very
Russian name), and was over the
American Consulate. You might think
that people here were cringing and
afraid. Not at all. On our train from
St. Petersburg a lady in a boudoir
near us had a pet dog in a basket.
This dog she refused to put in the
baggage van, in spite of the protesta
tions of some of the passengers and
the conductor. Finally, early in the
morning, the train stopped at a big
town, and they had to call in the Star
osta. or governor, who. however, got
the lady and her dqg both transferred
to the baggage van.
J)iffe'ent Laugl l.
Sometimes, however, we judge the
laughter of men who say what is
funny in quite a different way. We
do not think it arises from the precep
tion of the intellectual relations of the
representations involved, but rather
from a feeling of the promotion of
some interest. There are laughs of
triumph and laughs of scorn. These
are merely considered indicative of
certain states of feeling of which we
may not approve, but not to imply
anything which would make us think
less of the person's wit or humor. If
a Voltaire ,wears a malicious smile, we
atrribute this merely to his character.
In fact, so commonly is laughter con
nected with a pleasure in the precep
tion of the promotion of some interest
that many psychologists overlook the
disinterested pleasure. But it is the
plcasure taken in Lze perception of the
intellectual relations or representa
tions that explain why that which in
volves the promotion of an interest is
regarded in the particular way in
which these relations become appar.
ent. In order to make something ap
p:ar laughable, it is put in a certain
form which would not be better than
certain others, were it not that there
is a disinterested pleasure in what is
laughable. This dlisinterested pleas
ure, and the desire to enjoy it. makes
others then adopt the point of view
which renders it possible. This is
what makes ridicule such a dangerous
weapon, for, more than anything else,
it makes us take a required stand
point, and this, very often, is half the
battle.-Westminster Review.
Tonki Hie Advice.
After she had been married six
months she went to her uncle, who
believes that a matrimonial alliance is
a voluntary acceptance of slavery.
"Suffering from the conjugal yoke,
hey?" he replied to her presentation
of afflictions.
"No, uncle, from the conjugal joke,"
for she would not humor his preju
dices.
"Same thing," with a hardening
voice, "but I require details before
giving advice."
"Well, he is a practical joker of the
worst sort. lie delights to slip salt
into my tea, wake me out of a sound
sleep by playing burglar; send anony
mous letters threatening to burn the
louse down; tell me that he has failed
and that the poorhouse stares us in
the face; swears that the house is
haunted; anything to scare me and
give him a laugh."
"Of course. Marriage makesa brute
of a man and a fool of a woman. But
don't you be a soft little silly. Go
right back at him with his own weap
ons. Mix glue with his shaving soap.
Dust the inside of his underclothing
':-ih red pepper. Put sand in his
shoes. Change his best hat for one
two sizes larger. Pretend to fall in
love with some other fellow. Keep
him in hot water day and night. I
guess that will hold him."
She acted on this advice. The hus
band thrashed the uncle. The wife
holds that he did just right, and now
there is a prospect that they will live
happily ever after.-Detroit Free Press.

STRIDES IN. MATCH-MAKING.
lUre it Part Played b6: Machinery - Cuba
Unconquetable.
The consolidation 'of two large
match companies recently effected in
London attarcts attention tp the great
growth of the business abroad, and,
curiously, its apparent.inability to se
cure a foothold in Cuba. The union of
the Diamond Match company with- the
Bryant & May concern makes u"n
doubtedly the largest incorporation of
its kind in the world. An idea of the
total output of matches is to be had
by figures furnished by the Atlantic
Match company, one of the strongest
competitors. Five hundred million
matches are said to be made daily
in Europe, and these figures may be
doubled for the United States.
One factory in Ohio alone is cred
ited with turning out 100,000,000 fin
ished matches in 24 hours. Fifty mil
lion feet of lumber are used in the
United States in the manufacture of
matches, and some $20,000,000 invest
ed. What an important part modern
machinery plays in this industry may
be imagined when it is said that only
about 15,000 people are employed.
"There are but a few statistics to
giye," said a match representative
recently, "to convince one of the
strides in the butiiness. American
matches have been able to secure a
foothold in Europe because of the su
periority of American machinery over
tools that were in use 25 years ago.
In Cuba, however, machinery is al
most unknown. Matches are hand
made, and yet we do not seem to get
in. Some attribute this lack of suc
cess to the popularity of the small
wax match made in Havana, which
boys peddle on the street for almost
nothing. There are about nine of
these factories in Havana alone, and
it would be a strange Havana, in
deed, without the ragged little match
boy. Cubans will not use any other
kind of a match."--New York Post.
Personnel of tlhe Navy.
The semi-annual edition of the naval
register, bearing date of July 1, but
i which has been delayed in publication
through the failure or the board of rear
admirals to report the names of the
two lieutenants whom they have se
lected for retirement, shows that there
have been 26 resignations, 23 retire
ments and 30 deaths in the navy and
marine corps since Jan. 1. One naval
Scadet was dismissed, but subsequently
Spardoned. There are 21 rear admirals,
of whom three are "extra members,"
promoted for war services, whose re
tirements will not create vacancies;
70 regular and three extra captains,
112 regulars and three extra command
ers, 170 regular and two extra leuten
ant commanders, 300 regular and four
extra lieutenants, and 104 junior lieu
tenants.
The register shows that there is a
serious shortage in the number of en
signs. The law authorizes 245, but the
list contains only 126. There has been
much complaint over the lack of watch
and division officers for warships, but
although secretary Long has frequent
ly urged on congress the necessity of
authorizing an increase in nmimber of
naval cadets and shortening the course
of instruction in order to provide
enough junior officers, his efforts have
been unavailng. The fact that 119
vacancies exist among the ensigns at
a time when there are more vessels
in commission than ever before ex
cept in war times, will be brought to
the attention of congress as an argu
ment in favor of increasing the number
of naval cadets.
News from Tristan da Cuoha.
An interesting account of Tristan da
Cunha, that solitary island in the mid
dle of the Atlantic, between America
and South Africa, is given in "Annales
Hydrographiques," by a German cap
tain who recently visited it.
There are sixty-three inhabitants on
the island, he says, and their time is
spent in fishing and breeding cattle.
They have between five hundred and
six hundred cows, and as many sheep,
and they also have an abundance of
butter, milk, eggs and vegetables. On
the other hand, they are often in need
of flour, tea, coffee 'and tobacco;
though, as there are only five smokers
on Tristan da Cunha, the occasional
dearth of tobacco cannot be regarded'
as a national calamity.
The German captain found the is
landers very sociable. They provided
him and his men with a supply of
fresh meat, and in return received
some articles of clothing, which were
mnuch needed.
edARNESSING JOVE'S BOLTS,
Protection Against Lightning Still a Field
for Inventors.
A severe electrical storm visited i
St. Louls last week and a consider.
able property damage resulted, while
several persons were more or less
seriously injured. In recent years St.
Louis seems to have become a favor.
ite target for Jove's missiles, and the
frequent repetition of such disasters
has moved the Post-Dispatch to re
mark that it is time some steps were
taken toward the possibility of con
trolling the discharges from the jFrtil
lery of heaven. Our contemlporary
suggests that 150 years ago Franklin
showed that lightning was nothing
more than untrapped ;electricity, and
that since that time o progress has
been made on the. 'ities which he.
started. It is argued that if Frank
lin, with his primitive apparatus,
could harness the lightning on a small
scale, modern science, with all the
resources which it has at hand, should
be able to subdue the thunder-storm.
The Post-Dispatch also calls atten
tion to some experiments made 'n re
cent years by an English scientist,
who erected tall poles about his
estate, topped with lightning rods,
and stored the electricity caught in
Leyden Jars.
There seems to be no doubt, In
view of the statistics compiled by
meteorologists, that damage from
lightning Is steadily increasing in this
country. Various causes are ascribed.
Some scientists say that the destruc
tion of the forests has resulted in an
increase in-the number and severity
of electrical storms. Others say that
the centralization of industry result
ing in vast emanations of steam from
every city in the country, has tended
to increase the amount of vapor in
the atmosphere and resulted in more
frequent storms. But whatever the
cause the fact remains. Latest fig
ures show that more than 500 people
were killed by lightning in the coun
try last year, while the property loss
ran high into the hundreds of thou
sands. Of course, as has been said,
500 people out of 75,000,000 is not a
great number, but the loss of that
many lives yearly from any cause
which might be removed by proper
effort is appalling to contemplate.
Moreover, the prop'ety damage is a
factor of no small i~mportance, and
one which cannot under present con
ditions be entirely guarded against.
There seems to be little, doubt that
science will soon be called on to take
up the question of wholesale protec
tion from lightning. The writer
quoted above favors an endeavor not
only to make the lightinng harmleos,
but to make it the servant of man.
This is a tremendous proposition.
Electricity has been put into service
to a remarkable degree. Today it fur
nishes man with heat, light and pow
er. It carries his messages for him,
furnishes him quick transportation,
cooks his dinner, lights his room. Yet
we do not know what it is. No man
knows whence it comes or whither it
goes. Its most tremendous and ter
riflc demonstration is in the lightning.
Men who attempted to follow the ex
ample of Franklin have met death as
the result of their temerity, and we
have no assurance that an effort to
enlarge on his ideas might not result
in disaster on a larger scale.
But the experiments of the English
scientist spoken of above seem to
have been entirely successful, and
there appears to be no reason why
they should not be followed on a
larger scale. In the cities immunity
from hanger might in all probability
be procured by the erection of very
tall poles, equipped with proper con
ductors for carrying off the current
from the clouds before it has time to
concentrate into a destructivp dis
charge. This experiment has been
tried with success. But so far as the
country districts are concerned such
safeguards are, of course, impossible.
And as to utilizing the electricity tak
en from the clouds in the manner sug
gested, it would probably be not so
much a question of catching as of
holding on.-Louisville CourierJout'

The Picturesque Susquehanna.
I have nothing against the Hudson,
although, except for about 20 miles, it
has always appeared to me a trifle
gray and monotonous. But the less
talked- of and too-neglected Susque
hanna is a much finer and more in
teresting stream. I had ample oppor
tunity of forming conclusions as to
the respective beauties of the two
rivers as I was whisked from Hoboken
to Buffalo the other day. For upward
of nine hours, and for a distance of at
least 300 miles, the tracks run through
a country which to an English eye has
a peculiar charm, recalling as it does
(but on a grander scale) the reaches
and the woods of the Thames. Over
and over again as I looked from the
windows of the limited I could have
sworn that I was nearing Cliveden
or Medmenham or Pangbourne. Then,
however, the hills would rise almost
to the dignity of mountains. Broad
meadows, filled with rich, lush, sum
mer grass and dotted with cattle;
great hanging woods, reflected in
calm, winding waters; villas, seem
ing to speak of comfort and peace;
and, from time to time, a glimpse of
some village or town-at a distance
not very unlike Henley or Great Mar
low, are among the features of this
pleasing route.-Buffalo letter to Lon

THROUGH GERMANY'S GARDENS.
Where No Lunnl fnna to Wcate and the
Fiellt look Like Ned Qailts.
North Germany is a low and level
plain, bearing the strongest possible
outward resemblance to a patchwork
bed quilt of the old fashioned log
cabin pattern.
The land is cut into patches no
larger than our garden plots. Patches
mostly rectangular shaped, buit some,
to meet the exlgc'cles of the ground,
are curves, squares, half squares,
wedges and ovals. Not a fence or any
~ort ctf boundary line is anywhere
seen.
The freshly quilted colors of these
little fields, green, brown and yellow,
according to the tint of the crops and
the foliage alone, give diversity to the
placid scene, for solidity, regularity
and the quintessence of stiffness
stamps everything German.
Clearly outlined against the horizon,
picturcequing the otherwise monoton
ous landscape, are countless windmills
whose Jagged arms seem forever beck
oning to you frantically as you speed
along.
There is, however, no such thing in
Germany as "out in the country" in
our sense of the term. The dense pop
ulation is all citner gatlhered into the
citii.s that stand in astonishingly close
proximity, or into the lits!' peasant
villages everywhere dotting the plain,
usually about two miles apart, and
looking brown and teeming like wasps'
nests.
Abso!utely no land runs to waste in
Germaicy. Every foot of soil is grain
sowt.d or planted to vegetables or flow
ers. One crop is no sooner removed
than the ground is again plowed and
made ready for the next erop.
The ground looks as light and loamy
as if it had been all shaken through a
coarse sieve, of gone over with a
coarse comb. Yet these smooth fells
are mostly cultivated by yokes of
clumsy oxen or single cows that draw
their loads by ropes and leathers at
tached to broad bands lashed in. front,
driven often by women.
German farming implements are all
far inferior to ours. The scythe is a
straight stick with two subhandler et
tached. The general fork and rake
combined is wooden and clumsy, with
three times wide apart. Farming
utensils are very costly, too, in Gsr
many.
No rugged scars of gashed earth are
I anywhere seen in Germany, but
I smooth, white high roads, bordered on
5 both sides by apple trees. These trees
' belong to the government, to which
3 they yield a considerable revenue by
3 the sale of their fruit to the peasants,

townspeople.

Now that rural free delivery Is no
longer regarded as an experiment, but
has been established as a permanent
enterprise, it is time for the Postoffice
Department to take up the question
of increased compensation for the car
riers. The pay of this class of em
ployes is now $500 a year, for which
the carrier must provide a horse and
wagon. The daily service (except
Sundays) is a twenty-mile drive, which
occupies an average of six consecu
tive hours. Whatever may be the de
cision as to the amount of the pay.
there is no reason why the monthly
check should not be sent promptly. It
has become the custom of the Gov
ernment to remain a full month in
arrears.
Elaborate experiments in fecling
Wvheat to farm animals and swine have
been made this year at the Kansas
Experiment Station, and also In other
States of the corn belt. The experts
conclude that wheat has greater nutri
tive value than corn, and may be used
either crushed,i mixed with oats or
corn, or in connection with straw in
time of extreme scarcity. The drought
in Kansas has not affected the wheat
crow', ard many farmers will be com
pelled either to use their wheat as fod
der or to sacrifice their live stock.
