Mr. Holman. of Ioaiana, has been re

democracy of his district has made him
the recipient of such expressions of their
confidence. Since 1859. when bis ser
vioe '. egan, wiih the exception of one
term, he has continuously served on the
floor of the house; and so faithfully and
satisfactorily has he executed the high
trusts of the position that his renomina-
tion was not only a merited compliment
to his abilities and integrity as a repre
sentative, but was generally expected and
It has often been stated that anything

The announcement that a settlement
of differences between the governments
of the United States and Italy
bad been reached has been con
firmed by the state department, and
the official correspondence bearing upon
the agreement has been given to the pub
lic. It appears that the government of
the United States took the initiative in
closing the breach, and simply as an act
of justice and from motives of comity,
placed in the hands of the Marquis Im
periali, the Italian charge d'affaires, the
urn of 125,000 francs or $25,000, for dig
tribution among the heirs of the three
Italians who were killed at New Oleans
and were found to be subjects of the
Italian government. By this action on
the part of the United States government
thedisagreeable complications in the re
lations of the two governments have been
entirely removed, and the diplomatic re
lations between them are restored to the
amicable status existing before the New
Orleans tragedy. Minister Porter will at
once return to Rome, and a minister
from Italy will take up his residence in

To Supply Free Lunch.
'Paris," a gentleman a few days
ago, "is fan ous all over the world for the
variety and nature of the odd enterprises
by means of which its citizens gain a liveli
hood. "1 will v-iiture to say, however," he
added, "tha:. there is one calling in New
York that if peculiar to itself and to the
city and has no duplicate in Paris."
"And what is that?" asked the friend to
whom he wi s speaking.
"A company organized to supply free
lunch to saloons," was the reply.
Then the man went on to tell of the ex
istence of a Irm that makes a specialty of
cooking hug rounds of corned beef, ham,
baked beans, chowder, minute flshballs
and other kinds peculiar to a free luuch
"These,' he said, "are carried to cus
tomers in delivery wagons and if they
need heating that is done on the premises."
His frieml replied that he hwl often no
ticed the similarity of the various "lay
outs" in the city, but he said, "Why do
yon say that it is an industry peculiar to
New York t.nd that it does uot exist in
"For tbe simple reason." answered the
other, "that there are no free lunches in

A Remarkable Variety of Limestone So
Called 'oll riant.
In the south of France, upon the banks
of the Rhone, occurs a curious variety of
limestone, to which the name truffitte has
been given, on account of its peculiar prop
erty of exhaling the odor of the truffle when
rubled or broken. From an illust rated ac
count in Popular Science News, of this and
other remarkable minerals, the following
is reproduced: The mineral occurs in beds
of lignite in the form of irregularly round
ed or flattened masses more or less perfect
ly crystallized in different layers (Fig. 1)
and somewhat resembling the' similar sili
ceous formations known as agates. .
A close study of this mineral has led to
the conclusion that it isa mineralized wood
m which the original substance has been
replaced by carbonate of lime. It is prob-

We have arrived at a fair solution of the
mystery of the spleen, which is a blood

the work, among other duties possibly, of
making bluol corpuscles but until very
recently the tonsils puzzled us completely.
The opinion vas hazarded that they might
be glands of service in early life, like the
thyriod gland in the neck, or the thymus
gland, which is big in infancy, lint de

away from the first eoch of our existence.

able that in some past geological age, when
the country was submerged under water
and the lignite betls were being formed,
branches of trees floating in the water were
deposited in such a position that the car
bonate of lime which was dissolved in the
water penetrated into their substance, so
that, as the woody substance decayed, it
was replaced by carbonate of lime, more or
less perfectly crystallized. The peculiar
odor of the truffitte is supposed to be due
to the decomposing animal or vegetable
matter contained in the water at this time.
Although it is very pronounced when the
i crystals are first crushed, the odor soon

Hood's Sarsaptrilla absolutely euro
where other preparations fail. It possess
es medicinal merit peculiar to itself.
The progress of science is not without
its dangers, as well as its benefits, to man
kind. The employment of a preparation
of solidified gun cotton as a substitute for
ivory, and, when colored, for tortoise shell,
horn, etc., lias long been known to be at
tended with a certain amount of risk. A
scientific authority has recently published
a letter, recounting a singular accident
which occurred to a lady who was stand
ing near a fire. She found herself sudden
ly enveloped in smoke, and a gentleman
who crushed tbe ignited jxirtion of her
dress had his baud badly burned. The
fire originate where a large fancy button
had been, which had disappeared. The
following test of the inflammability of one
of the buttons shows the danger of this
style of ornament: A phosphorus match
and a piece of a button were placed on a
piece of iron heated by a gas flame; in five
minutes the button ignited, and in twelve
minutes another piece double the distance
from the flame, while the match remained
unignited for more than a quarter of an
hour. Another button, attached to a
duster, and placed before the fire in a posi
tion a lady's dress might occupy, took fire
and ignited the duster in a few minute.
Train Oil for Calming Waves.
Herr Josef Grossman, an Austrian me
chanical engineer of some note, has been
addressing a scientific audience in Vienna
upon the question of calming the ocean
waves in storms by oil. The frequent fail
ures that have been experienced in this di
rection Herr Grossman ascribes to a too
indiscriminate use of oils. Purified petro
leum, and in general mineral oils, he says,
are quite unsuitable for the purpose, even
when poured by caskfuls into the sea.
Train oil, on the other hand, is extremely
effective. Even so small a quantity as half
a gallon an hour will, he contends secure a
large vessel against danger. On the con
clusion of HerrGroKsmau'ssecond lecture a
discussion took place, and the meeting re
solved to petition the Austrian naval ad
ministration to conduct an extensive series
of trials with train oil in order to test its
