DlacoTered bv Accident.
"The most vnluabl; thing about thia
vi hole car," said an el. ctric engineer, "was
discovered more or lass by accident. It
shows how difficult it is even for expert in
ventors to foresee the nffects of their work.
You know heretofore the trrent trouble has
been to get electric motors which were
strong enouuh to start the car without los
ing an enormous ar lount of force. It
easy enough to keep car moving after it
is once started. Tin- trouble is the dead
weight at the begin ling. The motor on
this car can be di.scon nee ted from the axles
by turning a lever, so that the motor keeps
going even after the t ar is stopped. Accord
ingly, when the car is stopped, I turn off
the electricity, and 1 he motor keeps mov
ing from its own moi uentum. It is usually
necessary to start the car apain at once, and
so I connect the moti t with the axle before
I turn on the elcctrii ity. The momentum
of the motor starts t he car and gets it well
under way before it is necessary to turn
the electricity on. T hat's one of the most
valuable features of the whole thing, and
yet it maybe class d almost as a discov
ery." New York Sc u.
BIr. Conkllna-'t lavorit Word. .
A small box, witl a combination lock,
was found among tbe effects of the late
Roacoe Conkling, ai d as no will appeared
among his papers i t was suggested that
this box might cont ain the desired docu
ment. The adminfr trator did not care to
break- the box, an-1 every poalble word
which Mr. Conkling might have used in
setting the combination was nsed on the
lock, but without success. 'At last his
daughter said that l er father was especially
fond of words whii h contained the letter
O pronounced witl its Ions sound. Bhe
said her father woe Id frequently utter the
word Home, dwelli lg particularly on tbe
vowel, and assertii ig that tbe word was
one of the most fa inating in the language
for him to hear. She suggested that he
might have used tl at word in making the
combination. Tb it word was tried; it
proved to be the ri, ht one, for the combi
nation yielded to it, the box was opened
and wit hin was found the short and simple
will which Mr. Conkling bad written
many years before Chicago Herald.

The old saying that:
"THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING IS THE EATING THEREOF,"
can be readily exemplified not only by the unheard oriow prices, but to further prove
that this is a bona fide sale we below mention plainly the manufacturer's name from
whom thiai great stock was purchased, liz; Goldsmith, Klaw fc Co., !!-10l West
Third street, Cincinnati, Ohio.
People often say that horses caaoot
tiink well, maybe tb.!y cant' writes the
author of "Life with the Trotters," who
then tells two anocdol.es which contradict
what "people sny."
Rarns, the wonderful trotter, bought by
Mr. Donuer for SW.OOU, was not inclined to
lie affectionate. lie had made the fur fly
from two dogs, but wheu a Scotch terrier
pup was placed in the stable the two be
came stroug friends. The admiratiuu and
love thnt they showed fur each other was
The dog one day, Iwing left in the stall
whilo tlH? horse was at the blacksmith's
shop, ma-lu havoc of everything there try
ing to get ont. The horse also was uneaxy
and anted as badly as the dog, so thnt from
that time the two were kept together.
When liar us was exercised or trotted,
Jimmy, the dog, watched him with as
much interest as his owner did. On re
turning to the stable the horse would bend
his head to receive on bis mouth the dog s
When Harus was led out of the stable to
be shown to the public, Jimmy, jumping
on the hostler's shoulder, would leap on
the horse's back and there stand. Ids head
high in the air, his tail out stiff, barking
Jimmy went with Ranis to Mr. Donner,
in whose city stable there was a boil terrier,
"monarch of all he surveyed. " One day
Jimmy attacked the bull terrier, and his
yelps soon indicated that he had been rash.
Rarus, hearing the cry of distress, V ashed
from his stall, and had he not been re
strained, would have made short work of
bis friend's foe. v
Ilay, another trotter, was bred on a farm
where an old gray borae ran with him in
the field. Such was the strong attachment
between the two that when Uay was sent
to a trainer's he refused toeat and thrashed
around wildly in his stall. On returning
him to the farm and his old grav horse he
becamu as quiet as a lamb. From that
time the two chunks were never separated,
eveu on the track. '
Leaves for Textile Fro-poMs.
For cordage end other textile purposes
numberless leaves are nsed, and they serve
very generally for packing and wrapping
dp small parcels in India. In Guiana
Tibisiri fiber ia obtained from the inner
surface of the spiral leaves of the I tat palm,
Mauri tia fiexuosa. It la nsed by the In
dians for making hammocks, eta. The
leaves are cut before they are open, and
the midrib separated by drawing each di
vision of tbe leaf through the finger and
thnmb. After drying the fiber ia read
for use without further preparation.
About a quarter of a pound may be pro
cured from each leaf, and if the antral
leaf is left uninjured no evil effect ia pro
duced from tbe -tree. Bags and matting
could be easily and cheaply made from this
fiber, as well as huts similar to those
known as Panama. New York Telegram.
