A Singular I'eiiftiilum.
If you fill a claret glass to the brim with

knows, by reason of the pressure- of the at

so closely that the glass may be turned up
side down and the liquid will not escape.
Here is another application of the same

as to make it air tight. Hung the glass,
by means of the thread, to a hook lixed in
the ceiling and you will thus have a pen
dulum which you may set swinging pretty
smartly, according to a writer on scientific
amusement, without any fear of the glass
falling. But the neophyte must bear in
mind to grease the lip of the glass with
suet that it may adhere the more closely
to the cardboard, and (at any rate la his
earlier attempts) ha will do well to use
toughened glass for the experiment.

AH Attempt to Queued the Flame.
In 183 a fire broke out iu the inside slone
of No. 6 colliery, near Lausford, in this
state, and it is ragi ig still with all the
fury which the very nest of fuel can give
it. It is in a bed of irotil 8,001) feet long, 30
leet thick and 450 fet deep, and thoutrh it
is covered with rock and clay to a depth
ranging from thirty :o fifty feet, the stones
on the surface are so heated that a parlor
nmtcn lam on them will ignite man in
stant. In one spot the men employed at
the diamond drill I.ght their pipes with
the superheated pebbles. There is very
tittle external cviaei.ee ot the lire, save the
constantly rising v ipor and the noxious
gas that tills the a r and at times kills
birds and small animals that linger too
long ill t he neighboi hood.
The early history of Xo. f, was verv un
eventful until about; It was opened
some thirty odd years auo by ''Old Jim"
Andrews, ami was worked on the water
level for some years without serious acci
dent, anil wir hout p-oducing any consider
able quant ity of coal. The gangways were
turned east huh west at a point l."0 yards
vertically below th ! surface, and a num
ber of breasts were opened and continued
to be worked tin, . I the Lehigh. Coal and
Navigation company reclaimed the place.
The votnpauy oriiii nilly obtained control
of the largest tracts upon the rental of an
ear of com per year, but, as may readily
be imagined, iu lieu of paying the great
increase of rent demanded when the de
velopments had be -u made, the company
acquired title in fee.
lhe workings we -e all opened from the
foot of the slojie, ttud the machinery fur
pumping and hoi -ting was not only in
place, but working along smoothly when
the lire broke out. It is alleged" that a
handful-of oily ct tton waste used about

rats up the slope ai d behind tiie timbers.
ignited spontaneously and caused a confla
gration which has ;,ince cost a fortuue in
cash and coal. It s estimated that a yard
of coal in the vein -veighs a ton.
The dimensions i. f the area in which the
fire is now conlinei , and lievond which it
cannot extend hen after, indicates l.lol.OOO
cubic yards or tons of coal involved. From

From all these circumstance the state

Ka-t Fine Knot, a few miles from I'otts-
ville, has burned more than thirty years
without working one-quarter so much de
struction. At V udesviile. in the snma
neighborhood, there is a mine which has
burned forty years, and at nitrht i unite

thau this ami were subdued in a short
time, but they were below the water level,
and were quenched by turning a stream of
water into the blazing subterranean re
cesses. In the cae of N'o. C the fire started
below the water level, but it spread so rap
idly upward that, while the slope fire was
soon drowned o it, there was no known
way of checking its progress above water
level, except by shutting out the air that
is needed to supi ort combustion.
This was the Hist effort made. Brattices
were built acros the gangwavs, stopping
every hole and crevice through which air
could reach the fire. The mine was prac
tically hermetically sealed. All pumping
of water and air was suspended, and men
were left to watch the result. In two
weeks, when reopened, it was found t hat
the lire burned with increased furv. The
attempt to smother it wus a failure. TAen
an effort was u ade to draw the fire, and
men were engaged in mining the glowing
coals until one after another they were
overcome by the heat aud gas, and several
lives were ead.iLgered.
ATTKMPTS 10 PUT OCT THE FIItK.
At. various til les men were so far gone
that their recovt ry was doubtful. General
Superintendent William D. Zehner was
carried nut in i n unconscious condition,

excited men working ever Lis inanimate

skin exposed bi.t that which, covered Lis
nostrils, and thus he lay for six hours be

right through, t tie entire mountain. Water
whs poured in but year after year there
were surface indications that the fire was
still raging. Wherever these indication
appealed it whj a sign that there the fire
was getting air, aud clay was piled upon
the spot by men employed for the slngie
purpose of watchiugfor these manifesta
tions. At one time an effort was nnde to des
troy the atmos iheric air by the introduc
tion through a drill hole of lime and nitric
acid Has, and 1 1 other times other gases
have lieen manufactured high up on Lo
cust mountain side and forced in upon the
burning mass, but without having the
slightest apparent effect upon the euergy
of the flames.
Thus the un tjual contest was waged un
ceasingly until 1890, when all hope of ex
tinguishing the fire was abandoned, and it
w.-s decided to cut the fire off, or rather to
confine it to a definite area, 2.001) feet long,
by deep cuts, transversely to the vein.

FORTIFIED WITH DOCUMENTS.
A Man Xtht Was Prepared to Cope with
the Skeptleim of the World. .
We were waiting-nt the depot in Jack
son, when a rough looking man who had
one shoe cut open on top and limped pain
fully on that foot came into the waiting
room and solicited friendly aid. The ex
planation lie made was as follows:
"Gentlemen, I have received a telegram
from Sanilac to the effect that my sister is
dying. I want to raise money to take me
"Look here, mister," replied the first
man he struck, who had a sort of cold
hearted look about him, "what's the use
iu your lying about things? Isn't it better
to teil the straight truth thau to indulge
in such improbable yarns?"
"Sir! I am telling the truth," he replied.
'Humph! Got the telegram to show for
it, 1 suppose?"
"I have, sirl"
"Got it right in yonr pocket, probably?"
"Certainly here it is!"
A ml he pulled out a telegram sent from
Ssaniiae and received at lackson reading
Just as he had stated. More than that, the
receiving operator had attested the fact of
Its lielng genuine. The cold hearted man
was taken aback, but after a moment he
rallied and said:
"It's a wonder you didn't claim to be an
"I am one, sir," was the quiet reply.
"Got the proofs of that, probably?"
"I have, sir. Here is my discharge."
Tnere was no getting around the fact,
and l he cold hearted man seemed a little
shaky as he continued:
"Yes, I see. I'robably gat yonr foot hurt
in the service of yonr country?"
"yes, sir. A runaway horse attached to
a mail wagon stepped on that foot while I
was trying to stop him. Here is an affi
davit to that effect. 1 suppose you'd call
that in the service of my country, wouldn't
you? It was in the service of the govern
ment, at least."
"But see here," continued t he ot her, un
willing to acknowledge defeat, "this tele
gram about your sister is a week old."
"Certainly. I haven't been able to raise
the money to get there."
".She's probably dead by this time."
"She is, sir, as this other telegram re
ceived two days ago will inform you."
"Theu what's the use of your going?"
"To make arrangements for the .uture
care of her three orphan childr'.-n, sir.
Here's a letter duly attested, proving that
she left three who must be looked after."
He pulled cut the letter and handed it
over. Kverybody was now chuckling over
the fix the cold hearted man was in, and
he had sense enough to take the only
ruiite open aix get out of it by handing
the man a dollar, lie didn't feci iit;lit
hbotit it, however, and observed:
"It's a wonder you haven't a document
proving that you got burned out iu the
great Chicago fire!"
"But I have, sir! Here it is! Knowing
how human nature is, I make no asser
tions which I cannot back up with sworn
And what did he do but hand out an old
Affidavit, signed and sealed, that attested
that he had lost f l.OtK) worth of household
goods in the Garden City holocaust! This
took 'iKith legs from under the man, and

Charlie's "Mixnek" Table.
Mathematics are Charlie's bete noire.
The way he mixed himself up and got lost
in the mazes of the multiplication and di
vision tables was astounding. The weights
and measures were not much better, al
though lie agreed that there was some
sense in a fellow's knowing how many
ounces went to a pound of candj-.
The other night when Charlie sat down
to study, for ho is an honorable little fel
low and doesn't shirk a thing because he
doesn't like to do it, he seemed especially
gloomy and downcast.
"What is the table for tomorrow?" said
mamma, trying to put a cheerful face on
"Oh, it's the worst one yet. I don't see
anv sense in it. It's called the 'Missek
"Let me see your book," said mamma,
who after groping around in the mathe
matical archives of her memory could re
call no such tal ile.
Charlie handed over a little memoran
dum book, in which his teacher had neatly
written his tables of weights and measures,
and where, heading the miscellaneous
table, stood this abbreviation, "Misc. Ta

Indian Meal I Ilealthy.
A famous doctor says: Eat a good bowl
of mush and milk for your breakfast, and
you will not reed any medicine.
Indian corn contains a large amount of
nitrogen, has qualities atiticoustipating
and is easily assimilated. It is cheap and
has great nutritive properties. A course
of Indian meal in the shape of Johnny
cake, hoe cake, corn or pone bread and
mush, relieved by copious drafts of pure
cow's milk, to which, if inclined to dyspep
sia, a little lime water may be added, will
make a life now a burden well worth the
living, aud you need no other treatment
to correct your nervousness, brighten
your vision and give you sweet and peace

years after he had gained but three inches,

A Monopoly In Camphor.
At one time Lhe camphor trade was mo
nopolized by the governor of Formosa and
his official staff. The annual output ran
as high as 250 aud 300 tons and netted the
distinguished syndicate over $100,000 a
year. The profit can be easily appreciated
when it is known that the poor peasant
was paid four cents per pound for the cam
phor, which was sold a week afterward in
Hong Kong for anywhere from twenty
four to thirty-five cents. Edward Bedloe
