THAT NEW POWER.
The Penweelt Myftteaa. of Electric
Railway Propalalen mmi urn Prom :
The Chicago Illustrated Century con
tains a cut of the motor soon to be tried
in Peoria and known as the Pennock sys
tem of propulsion, and which, Is exciting
the attention of street railway managers
throughout the countrj. There appears
in the same connection a general descrip
tion of the workings of the motor. It
, says that there Is a general concurrence
of opinion that electricity has a great
future before it, but there is still a con
sidcrable unconsciousness of some of the
best and most remarkable achievements
that persevering inventors have made in
developing the great practical side of this
science. The article continues:
For electric railways and electric light
ing a return might profitably be made to
the principle of producing electricity by
batteries of carbon zinc and acid com
pounds. Proceeding upon this idea Mr.
Geo. B. Pennock has perfected a system
which completely distances any other for
providing electricity for electric motors
for railways, and for the purpose of elec
tric lighting. . The ordinary electric rail
way, such as we aee in large cities, is far
from being perfect. The expense of
maintaining power houses is very con
siderable. Mr. Pennock, by his prl
mary batteries, can do away with
the necessity of storage batteries, dyna
not, overhead wires, etc., altogether, and
yet run the cars as fast as ever, and at a
mere fraction of the cost. The batteries
are placed on the motor car and the lat
ter can thus be run on any track. No
cells are waiting when out of service, and
no local action is allowed on the Pennock
porous cop. The system costs about one
fifth of other electric systems, and about
one-twentieth of the cable system.
- The speed and power attained are said
to be far greater than with the steam en
gine, as will shortly be shown by a train
to be run between Chicago and New
York by the inventor himself. For elec
tric lighting the system is exceptionally
convenient, and can be used in private
dwellings and hotels, or on a large scale.

The Union of Tuesday morning pub
lishes a communication from Lobb's Run,
Pa., written by Supervisor Heath, of
Bowling. After writing feelingly of the
scenes of his childhood borne, and the
tender reminiscences brought to mind,
Mr. Heath describes the condition of the
farmers there and how they regard the
tariff as affecting their class as follows
Farming is about as unremunerative
here as in the west and the farmers are
more generally dissatisfied, although the
crops are very fine (with the exception
of oata, which will be a failure, caused by
a bug of some kind) but the prices are
.below the cost of prodiMVfa&v and whai
surprises me most is that every farmer,
regardless of politics, is out and out for
free trade. While I have not been over
very extensive territory yet, I made it a
point to inquire of every farmer I could
aee, and fouod the sentiment the same.
A more complete flopover has not been
witnessed here since the war of the rebel
lion began. Intelligent men, who three
years ago claimed that "free trade" would
ruin the farmer, now say that "free trade"
is the only salvation. The home market
theory is here of no account, because
western grain, meat and hay are brought
here and sold here for less than the
farmers here can produce them. The
same may be said of butter, eges and
poultry. The coal business is dull, but
every other branch of business is boom
ing, especially iron, steel and glass. Good
productive land that rented fdt $10 per
acre would be hard to rent now at f 3;
and I have been told by the most solid
farmers in the country that land has de
preciated 83 to 66 per cent, according to
locality that is, for farming purposes
while for building purposes fabulous
prices are being paid. The county farm
eight miles from the city containing
150 acres, is now offered for sale. The
price asked -5.000 per acre it is said,
will be paid by Carnegie & Co. for build
It h8s been the custom for the city

Deafness Can't ba Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of he ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or im perfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by t atarrb,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucoua Surfaces.

Facts Worth Knowing.
In all diseases of the nasal mucous
membrane the remedy used must he non
irritating. The medical profession has
been slow to learn this. Nothing satis
factory can be accomplished with douches,
snuffs, powders or syringes because they
are irritating, do not thoroughly reach
the affected surfaces and should be aban
doned as worse than failures. A multi
tude of persona who had for years borne
all the worry and pain that catarrh can
inflict testify to radical cures wrought by
