Another JlrKtnley Minke.
F. G. Niedringbaus, of Si. Louis, is a
republican and ao ex-congressman. He
is proprietor of a tin stamping workB. It
was he wbo, during the discussion of tbe
McEinley bill, urged the increase of
duties on certain articles and the lowering
of them on certain others because, as be
stated, "it wouU benefit his business."
He is also the min whom the bich tax
organs are quoting so freely to prove that
tbe American tin plate industry is already
ft grand success. Last Wednesday morn ing
SUO men employed in Mr. Niedrine
haue's factory struck b cause be refused
to allow a fair scale of wazts. They are
liable to stay out, too. unless they yield
nd accept the reduced wag he offers
This is a fair sample of the "benefit."
tbe American workinman gets out of
protection. Mr. Niedringhau s voted for
tbe MrKmley bill. While tbat measure
was before cor press he made a L'reit
many speeches in its favor. During the
campaign which followed its passage be
made a great many more. Tbe chief
burden of them all was the great good
the laboring classs of the countr? wtre
toy receive from its passage. Wages
would be better, employment more plen
tiful. Every workingmtn in America
would have good cause to sing loud tbe
pra:ses of Mclvinleyism and tbe g. o. p.
This strike of 300 of bis own men
proves the s ncerity of his words. The
sincerity of every profession made by tl.e
. o.p. to tbe laboring men of America
is exactly on a par with it. Tbe high
taxer care a little more for tbe American
workingmen than they care for tbe Hot
tentots of Afr.c it is true, as the Bur
lington Gazette accurately puts it. Tbe
Hottentots can't vote. But when is
said all is sttid. The millionaire monop
olists of the Carnegie-Gauld Niedring
baus brand have ttie pull with tbe g. o.p.
What they say goes when it comes down
to business. Tiie wcrkitg men gets all
tbe promises, tbe mil;ionaires all tbe fat.
Tbe latter w M not even allow tbe former
tbe smallest share of the pudding. As
Mr. Niedringbaus has showd. they will
suffer them to s'rike first and 'ben fill
their pluces with others whose necessities
compel them to work for Ihe reduced
Oliver OolUamith aa a Married Man.
Tall Mull Budget tells that while rum
maging unioui; the p.irochiul archives of
Islington Mr. Edward Davey, clerk of the
(ruardiuus, has found an old book which
Kives some interesting facts about the fa
mous metropolitan district ns it existed at
the beginning of the present century.
Among other things it contains the census
return for Islington in ISO I. The parish is
described ns "u merry village adjacent to
London, and a favorite resort for its citi
zens," nnd the population is given ns 1(1,
12U Now Its inhabitants number ar.S.OOQ.
Another entry iu the curious volume has
raised a startling controversy among local
antiquaries. The genial Oliver Goldsmith
is generally supposed to have lived and
died a bachelor. Ia Islington another tra
dition exists. It is to the effect that not
only hnd Oliver a little habitation there,
where he spent a good deal of his time, but
by his neighbors he was regarded as a re
spectable married citizen. In the recently
found book occurs the name of Mary Oli
via Goldsmith, and it is stated that this
was none other than tbe poet's daughter.
Insect Prod acta.
While insect products are not numerous
in comparison with the number of insects,
of which there are nearly 300,000 species
known, there are several of great commer
cial value. The silkworm is the most use
ful of insects, furnishing the world an an
nual product of immense valoe. The
yearly value of the cochineal produce runs
to millions, while many of tbe gums
brought from the east are produced by the
insects piercing the barks of certain trees,
and thus causing tbe exudation. The
quantity of honey mmnally stored tip by
bees amounts to many millions of pounds,
and the wax is almost equally valuable. '
Gallnuts, from which a valuable kind of
Ink is made, are caused by insects, while
more than one kind is nsed in medicine.
In some parts of Asia and Africa a large
share of the people' food is supplied by
the swarms of locusts, so that the insect
world really contributes largely both to the
comfort and luxury of mankind.
A Simple bat Interesting Feat Which
Illustrates a Great Natural Law.
You may often see at tbe circus or else
where a juggler place a glass of water in a
hoop and whirl it rapidly round and round
till it makes you giddy to look at it, with
out a drop of tbe water escaping. The feat
is based, as most people are aware, on the
action of centrifugal force.
Here is a method of performing a similar
feat, not less startling, with tbe glass of
water alone, no other apparatus being em
ployed. The glass standing before you on
the table, you are to take it in your hand to
describe with it, at arm's length, a com
plete circle in the air anil to replace it on
the table without having spilled a single
drop of the liquid.
A CLEVER TRICK.
The secret lies mainly in the manner of
holding tbe glass. Instead of grasping it
as if you were about to drink, take it with
the palm ont ward and upward (as shown
in the diagram at the tipper corner). Swing
the arm boldly around and describe a
circle without a pause, but without exces
sive baste, in the direction shown by the
arrows in the illustration. The glass will
be found when it has completed the circle
to lie held in the baud in the manner repre
sented by the remaining figure of the cut.
This is the position in which it is to lie re
placed on the table. By beginning with
the glass haif filled with water and in
creasing the quantity as skill improves,
one will be able after a little practice to
perform the experiment easily. It is de
sirable to make the first attempts in the
open air. An important point to observe
is that there should lie no hesitation or uu
evenness in the circular motion.
The Life of Submarine Citblcs.
A hard and fast law as to the life of a
cable cannot be laid dowu, forthe duration
of the sheathing wires is governed by more
than one element. The quality of the gal
vanising, t he presence or absence of such
protection as compound tapes, or hemp,
anil the physical and chemical nature of
the bottom, are considerations which must
be taken into account. Submarine cables
may have a life of more than ten years.
They can lie successfully repaired at even a
considerably greater ai:e. There are now
in existence and in working order about
44,000 knots of cables, having a life of fifteen
years and over: of this amount some 21,ouu
knots are twenty years (and over) of age.
There are several instances of cables now
working Over twenty-rive years old, but
these are principally lines of unimportant
lengths, and lying in shallow water. The
cables we have cited, says Tbe Electrical
Review, are laid in all portions of the
glole. and snbmerged iu all sorts of depths;
and although the companies owning them
have spent, and are prepared to expend,
considerable sums in repairs, we do not
think that the complete renewal of each
section every ten years h.is entered into
theircalculation. Present experience would
lead us to allot to submarine cables laid
under favorable conditions an average life
of from thirty to forty years, but, as lefore
stated, no hard and fast figure can be t,iven.
When a Uelt Jumps OA a Pulley.
It does make a tremendous racket, to say
nothing of destruction of property and
danger to life, when a belt jumps off a
pulley and proceeds to wind itself down
around the shaft. A belt has no business
to jump of? the pulley, and will not do it if
properly proportioned for the load it is to
carry, weil taken care of and not over
loaded. Still, these conditions are hard to
be met, and where a supply of prevention
has Income exhausted a few pounds of cure
runs; 1 used. A tin tube running loose
upon a shaft will do no bnrtn except to
make a little noise. When a belt jumps off
on sue h a tube there is uo chance for it to
wind up. A good deal more noise is the
re.-ult. and less danger and damages, ac
cording to the Manufacturers' Gazette.
Turquoise in New -Mexico ami Arizona.
Among unique specimens of jewelry that
have !ei-n collected from the Indians of
New Mexico and Arizona, the turquoise
a phosphate of aiuimna colored blue by
copper plays a prominent part. These
specimens are intere-ting, says Popular
Science News, from which the accompany
ing illustration is reproduced, as indicat
ing that this beautiful mineral was prized
as a gem by t he aboriginal inhabitants of
this country, as well as by those natives of
oriental lauds who discovered it independ
ently. INDIAN JEWELET.
Fig. 1 represents a necklace of perforated
beads of turquoise, with a rude pendant of
tbe same material. Fig. 2 is an object of
remarkable interest a small image of a
prairie dog, carved from white marble,
with eyes of turquoise set into tbe stone.
Its neck is encircled by a collar, to which
is attached a piece of mother-of-pearl. This
object was an ancient fetich of the Pueblo
Indians, and was supposed to have the
power of causing rain. Fig. 3 is a silver
riug set with turquoise, and Fig. 4 a heart
shaped piece of the same mineral, engraved
with a figure of two crossed arrows, and
provided with a silver ring by which it can
Flail of Different Colors.
Divers in the clear waters of tbe tropical
seas find that fish of different colors when
frightened do uot all dart in the same d;
rection, but that each different kind takes
shelter iu that portion of the submariue

A GRAND BLUFF.
It Was a Prettr Hot Day, bnt Da Got
There was a young and harmless look
ing man sitting m Bryant park recently,
when along cane a very respectable
appearing citize i and sat down on the
bench beside him with a great jar, and
"Oh. Lord: bet it's hotr :

"Warm! Why, its enough to fry a

"Put up your money," said the young
man as he fished out a ten dollar bill.
"Ill bet tea to five it isn't as hot as ,
"Well, it's an ven hundred, anyway."
"Put up your money! It's ten to five
it isn't a hundred."
"May not be quite that, but it's 95," i
growled the very respectable as he fanned
himself with his hat.
"Ten to five that it isn't!" calmly re
plied the young man as he held out the
"Well, it's 00, and 111 bet $1,000 on
it!" shouted the ther.
"Even ten that it isn't 90!"
The very resectable had twenty
seven separate ar d distinct rivulets run
ning down his l ack as he turned and
looked the young man over, and finally
"Perhaps thert's a foot of snow on th
ground, and the Hudson river is frozen
"I don't say th it," replied the young
man, "bnt I'll bet you f 10 even up that
the thermometer doesn't show above 54
degs. in the sun, and that's about March
temperature. Money talks. Cover my
ten to win or lose!"
And with the nercury bobbing in the
bulb like an eg iu a kettle of boiling
water, and the h-at fairly frizzling tbe
flagstones around the park, the very re
sjiectable man su ldenly shivered a little,
buttoned the top button of his coat and
went away, sayii.g:
