FIRST T-RAILS IN AMERICA.
Made in Cardiff* Wales, for the Cam
den & Am boy Railroad.
In recognition of Andrew Carnegie's
gift of £10,000 for a new building for
Stevens Institute of Technology in Ho
boken, New Jersey, it has been decided to
present him with a section of an original
36-pound T-rail from the Camden & Ain
boy railroad enclosed in a suitable recep
tacle. The incident has a local interest
inasmuch as the rails were rolled in the
Dowlais works in 1831 and were the first
T-rails designed or made, although the
Vignoles rails produced in France several
years later have generally been credited
with being the earliest. The former were
designed by Robert L. Stevens, who was
sent to England to have them made,
there being in America at that time no
mill capable of doing the work.
Arrived in England, he called for bids
on the job from various iron works, but
at first none of them vcutured to under
take it. After a while lie persuaded Mr.
(subsequently Sir) John Guest to attempt
the task, not, however, before guarantees
had been given against damage to the
machinery in performing the mighty task
of rolling a 36-pound rail. Finally the
rails were satisfactorily rolled. They
were sent to the United States in a good
many different vessels, a few tons at a
time, for they were regarded as a peril
ous sort of freight.
Morton has fae similes of letters,
specifications and bills connected with
this matter, which are to be enclosed in
the silver box which is to contain the sec
tion of rail.—Cardiff Western Mail.
Charms of English Waterways.
Norfolk and Suffolk possess 500 miles
of inland waterways that flow amidst
rich meadow lands, margined with reeds
and water lilies, or through low marshes,

bridges, over the parapets of which old
men look down into the silent waters

whence, if you are yachting, you pause

behind is marked against the horizon

Italy's Trade Giong to Germany.
Italian trade with Germany in 1808
reached 157.250,000 lire for imports and
nearly 192.000,000 for exports. The chief
German goods taken by Italy which af
fect British trade are cotton, wool and
silk goods, and metals and machinery.
This last heading includes a third of all
the German exports to Italy, and at one
time this branch of trade was almost
wholly in British hands. Germany takes
more Italian wine year by year: Crefeld
takes a large and increasing quantity of
Italian silk, while vast quantities of fruit
and vegetables are now being taken bv
Germany from Italy.—London Mail.

for the Blood and Nerves
Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy,
is the right medicine for every young girl who
is just entering the first stage of womanhood.
It prepares the system in every way to act nor
mally. It enriches the blood supply, and keeps
the nerves calm and steady. Fortified with this
great medicine, all the womanly duties may be
undertaken and experienced without the slight
est jeopardy to health. It preserves the gifts of
nature and assists their development into glow
ing, healthful beauty.

Real beauty is rare. It belongs to perfect health. It is possible to every
woman who takes the matter in hand intelligently. Get advice from Dr.
Greene, the great specialist in these matters. He will tell you why all this is
so, and show you how to avoid the stumbling blocks that bar woman's way
to happiness. You may consult Dr. Greene without cost by calling or writ

away your beauty. Write to Dr. Greene to-day.
MRS. WILLIAM BARTELS, 239 East 87th St.,
New York City, says:
"Dr. Greene's Nervura made a wonderful improve

face. My friends hardly know me. I have gained flesh
and am like a different person."^

comes with pain is of itself certain to stop the

The beautiful curves which make women so

is the very essence of a presidential
election that some candidate must get
Some one must be disappointed.
And* in the history of the republic many
great men have sought and lost this cov
eted prize. Three great names stand out
prominently in the list—Clay, Webster
and Blaine—each the idol of his party,
each the victim of political scheming.
Aaron Burr, just a hundred years ago,
missed the presidency by the narrowest
margin. lie was an adept in political
intrigue, with a magnetic personality and
a brilliant mind that
him equal favor
in the eyes of the voters with Jefferson.
Each received seventy-three votes and
this threw the election into the House of
Representatives. Thirty-live ballots were
taken without result.
The Federalists were anxious to defeat
Jefferson and they gave their support to
Burr until the thirty-sixth ballot. Then,
Burr refused to give pledges required of
him, their support was withdrawn and
Jefferson was chosen. I11 accordance
with the law of those days Burr became
Vice-President. But he was a disap
pointed man. Following his defeat tor
the presidency came the fatal duel with
Hamilton, the Blennerliasset scandal, his
traitorous attempt to divide the country,
his temporary exile and social obscurity.
Do Witt Clinton was Mayor of New
York City for several term?, as well as
United States Senator and Governor of
.New ork State. He was popular with
the people, but his strong character made
him many political enemies. When Pres
ident Madison was renominated for a sec
ond term Clinton took the held against
him and made a hard fight, but lost for
lack of the vote of one State, of which
he had felt sure. His ime is sccure,

BAVARIA'S HALL OF FAME.
Idea Crystallized in America Is Not an
America is not entitled to claim orig
inality in her purpose to erect a hall of
fame at the University of New York.
Bavaria originated the idea long ago
and a hall of fame exists'in Munich to
day. It is known as "Die Ruhmes
halle," and overlooks the newer part of
the city and the Theresienwiese. The
hall was begun in 1843 under the su
pervision of the architect Klenz and
was completed ten years later. It is in
the form of a colonnade, seventy me
ters long and thirty-two meters wide,
and has two projecting wings which
partly inclose the statue of Bavaria.
This is a gigantic iron figure, 110 feet
high, weighing 64,177 kilograms, de
signed by Schwanthaler.
Along the front colonnade of the
Ruhmeshalle there are eighty busts of
famous Bavarians. These are exposed
to the air, but the Doric columns are
so arranged that they protect the busts
in a measure.

Jackson. In 1840 the adoption of the
unit rule prevented Clay's nomination in

1844 the W'higs nominated him by acc-la

dered by inducing hiin to favor the an

votes of thousands of anti slavery men.
The Whigs AVOII in 1848 and Clay would
have been their choice if Gen. Taylor's
newly made military reputation had not
given the nomination to that hero.
Daniel Webster is another great per
sonality among the unsuccessful aspir
ants for the presidency. Had he con
sented in 1848 to accept the nomination
in the Rhondda Valley, picked the lock
of his safety lamp with an ordinary
hairpin. He himself, together with
nearly 200 of his mates, perished in the
explosion which followed.
At Shoeburyness some fifteen years
ago Col. Francis Lyon invented a new
kind of sensitive fuse for big caliber
shells, and invited a number of gun
nery experts to be present at the trials.
On the night prior to the day on which
the experiments were to be made he
locked up a number of the fuses in a
shed in which there were some fowls.
The chickens started scratching, and
the dust flew up and settled on the
threads of the screws of the fuses.
When, next morning, an unfortunate
gunner started to fix one to a live shell,
the missile went off, killing the opera
tor, the inventor and five other persons.

"As to the play itself, I wish I need
say notliing about it. My mind, my
heart, my soul, have all been wrenched
and twisted with such emotion as is
not pleasant to feel nor expedient to
speak about. It was too real, too
heart-rending, too awful. I hate, I abhor
myself for feeling things so acutely. I
wish I were a skeptic, a scoffer, an
atheist. 1 wish I could put my mind
on the mechanism of the play. I wish
I could believe that it all took place two

was all actual. I wish I thought these
people were really Tyrolese peasants,
wood-carvers and potters, and that all
this agony was only a play. I hate the
women who are weeping around me.
I hate the men who are letting the tears
run down their cheeks and whose shoul
ders are heaving with their sobs. It
is so awful to see a man cry!
"But no, it is all true. It is taking
place now. I am one of the women at
the foot of the cross. The anguish, the
cries, the sobs, are all real. They pierce
my heart. The cross, with its piteous
burden, is outlined against the real sky.
The green hill beyond is Calvary. Doves
flutter in and out, and butterflies dart
across the shafts of sunlight. The ex
pression on Christ's face is one of an
guish, forgiveness and pity unspeakable.
Then his head drops forward on his
breast, it grows dark, the weeping be
comes lamentation, and as they ap
proach to thrust the spear into his side,
from which, I have been told, the blood
and water really may be seen to pour
forth, I turn faint and sick and close
my eyes. It has gone too far. I am no
longer myself, but a disorganized heap
of racked nerves and hysterical weep
ing, and not even the descent from the
cross, the rising from the dead nor the
triumphant ascension can console me
nor restore my balance. The Passion
Play but once in a lifetime."
