The selection of Major Goethals to
succeed John I Stevens as chief en

fact that he was regarded a.s the army
engineer of greatest energy who hail
Kuflicient experience for the important
work tr which he lias been assigned,
nays the New York Sun. Another rea-
son was that he is young enough to see
tho completion of the project. The
president lias been told that if the se

canal had lioon left to the engineer

Interesting Future For Recent Inven- i
tion of English Engineer. I
All Kimlish electrical engineer, Er-'
nest oklenliourg, has recently Invented
a new telegraphic receiver which, it is
declared, is sensitive enough to dereet
the most delicate Impulses which even
a pocket battery coukl send out.
'lliis instrument, which is at present!
known as the capilbform receiver, is
'more sensitive than the brain." It is !
said to transcend all previous inden
tions In delicacy. It depends on th j
fact that mercury in a vertical capil
lary tube, like that .of a thermometer.
rises ami tails when an electric cur
rent is passed through it.
This fact has long been known. Mr.
( lidenbourg's invention consists In
magnifying it and in utilizing it in a
shape which enables it to be used prae-
t lea I ly as the receiving instrument of a
elegraphie installation. Its peculiar
alue is. it Is claimed, that It will ro
pond to far smaller currents than
those at present used. A mere fraction
.f a volt is sufficient to work it. "
Mr. Oldenliourg asserts, says the
lioston Transcript, that it will be ouiti?
lossIMe with the aid of his new In
strument to make a telegraphic appa
ratus by which any one walking nliont
the floor could senib intelligible mes
sages, ror instance, to a conlederato on
the platform where a mind readin,;
act is being performed without any oni
else knowing about them.

The "Nebuchadnezzar Cure."
Many persons, men and women, who
are suffering from indigestion or simi
lar ailments are being treated In An
soiiia. Conn., by the "Nebuchadnezzar
cure, says an Ansonia dispatch to tha
Philadelphia I'ress. Those who read
their Iiible know that Nebuchadne7..ar
was condemned to go on all four anil
eat grass. The cure named after the
wicked king does not comind the pa
tient to eat grass, but the patient, wo
man or man, must go on all fours for
1 certain fixed time each day. If th
patient is a weak woman a quadriodal
tour of a large room once a day suf
fices; if he is a comparatively strong
nuiu half a dozen circuits of the room
on all fours are enough. The theory
back of the cure is that in the course
of his evolution man was a quadruped
before he was a biped and that certain
ills were acquired when he began to
jralk erect. So if he reverts to tlw
mode of progression of his remote an
cestors ho cures the nilments brought
into existence by his chauge of posi
re-tuts in cuoapo;i:n;r Uie cost ot laun-
