tary of agriculture. Hugh C. Wallace of
Os July 19 l-Jt9,Oovernor Altgeld wrote
to the Hen. David Bart'clt, of Dako!B,
in regard to the office of justice of the
peace: "I would recommend the abcN
ishing of this office, and that of constable,
and, instead, the giving to the county
court jurisdiction in all matters now
beard by justices; but care should be
taken at the same time to provide that
the county judge, as well as clerk and
sheriff, should be paid a fixed salary, and
that these under no circumstances have
any fees, where any are collected, should
be paid into the county treasury."
There is a strong prevailing sentiment
among attorneys throughout the state
that the county court should tie abolished
and a judge of the circuit court elected
for every one or two counties according
to population, thus abolishing the ap
pellate coort and giving the cir
cuit court jurisdiction over all matters
of litigation between the justice and the
supreme court. The plan would give to
each county a continuous session Of
court beginning with the first Monday
of each month, and there would be no
such dissatisfnciion as was experienced
over the present term. The state bar
association has endorsed such a plan.
Scribner's Magszioe for February has
a number of illustrated articles on un
usually interesting bits of foreign lands.
The writers of these invariably tuke tbe
picturesque point of yitw, and, wi h the
appropriate illustrations, succeed in
conveying the peculiar atmosphere of the
various places. Dr. Henry van Dyfce
writes an unconventional travel sketch
with the title, "From Venice to tbe
Gross-Venediger" two places which he
frankly says hve no contuction in logic

way, with pleasant glympses of wayside
inns, festivals of tbe peasant8,etc. There
are other serials and sketches of an inter

There is a sparkle about everything in
he Ladies' Home Journal that appeals
with wonderful attractiveness to a read
er, and this is especially true in its Feo
raary issue. Mr. Howells has, perhaps,
never been brighter in anything he has
done for a long time than he is in
his "Coast of Bohemia," and bis admira
ble glimpses of girl life in a great city.

In fact, there Is everything in this wisely

HIS BROOM OVERAVEO THE LIONS
A Grssa Laborer Polled Them About
Their Cag-e and Kaca pad Unharmed.
An incident happened at Barnum &
Bailey's show after in took up its win
ter quarters at Bridgeport which shows
to what danger an ignorant man will
expose himself and hew he may escape
all injury, says the Y. Tribune. A
fttw days ago "Tody" Hamilton, the
press agent of the firm, was asked for
work by a big German named Hans,
and as "somebody was wanted to clean
the cages of the animals he was en
gaged. He was told to clean the
cages containing the lions, tigers, etc.,
thoroughly, both inside and outside.
The man set to work and Mr. Hamil
ton went about his business. He came
back some time aftorward and was
wondering what had become of tbe
new hand, for he was nowhere to be
seen. On making a closer search Mr.
Hamilton was horrified to see the man
inside the cage with the five lions. He
was going about his work in a most
methodical way, sweeping the floor
vigorously with his broom, which he
occasionally "shooed" into the faces of
the astonished lions whenever any of
them cam- anywhere near him. The
animals were evidently so surprised at
the man's utter indi Terence to them
that they kept huddhd up in one cor
ner until Hans wanted to clean out
that particular part cf the cage. They
were unceremonious ly evicted with
the help of the broom, and they scam
pered around utterly forgetful of their
proper dignity. Mr. Hamilton never
expected the man to ooraeout alive, as
he felt sure the anin.als would attack
him as soon as he started to leave the
den. lie hastily got some of the older
bands together, and then he ordered
t lie German to come out of the cage.
The fellow wanted to tinish his job and
laughed at the idea of the animals
hurting liiru, but lie finally obeyed or
ders and got out of t ie cage without a
What prevented t ie animals from
tearing him to pieces is a mystery, for
nobody dares enter -he cage in which
these particular lion are, as they are
a savage, unruly lot. The coolness of
tie deed must have utterly astonished
the lions, and his steady" use of the
broom, which was poked in their faces
every now and then, must have con
vinced them that th-;y had to do with
some new species of animal and that
under the circumstances discretion
was the better part of valor.
It was some time before the man
could be convinced of the great dan
ger he had been in and )K?rsuaded to
use the rakes that aie always used for
cleaning out the insides of the cages.
These are provided with long handles

Ancient and Mod am War-ships.
The Greek and tie Roman galleys
when compared with the ships of ths
middle ages show not only greater sta
bility but fitness for many uses besidet
that of merely cutting the water. In
one we find at the water's edge a sheaf
of twelve huge swor Is or prongs tor
tearing an enemy at the water-line,
while above are two iron spear-headed
rams to be run out violently by a con
cealed crew, and shaped either to
smash in bulworks, r to hook on to or
cut the enemy's rinsing. From the
platform above archers could discharge
their arrows, or repil boarders.
Other war-galleys were provided
with catapults, from which great mass
es of stone or marble shot were hurled
upon the enemy's ship or arnid his
rowers. Some of this larger ships car
ried great cranes, w lich, being lower
ed to an opposing ship, lifted with
great grappling-irons ber bow or stern

less for attack or defense. These ma
chines, called "corvi," were invented
by the famous engineer Archimedes,
and were used by him with terrible ef
fect at the siege of Syracuse, where
the attacking galleys, according to
Plutarch, advancing too close to the
walls, were speared or grappled with
ere at twin prongs, and after being
lifted from the water by the ends were
swayed to and fro, whirled in mid-air,
and dashed to fragments against the
Though -we may doubt the saying
that "there is nothiig new under the

tecture repeating itself, for our mod

open fighting-tops at their mastheads,
and using tbe roi nd basket-shaped
fighting-tops which appear so often in
oljl designs of Roman ships, especially
of the time of Julius Ctesar in which
we also discover a f row, ram, or beak
so closely resembling those of tbe
"Chicago, "Atlanta, and "Maine,"
that we might accuse the later design

Dr. Siemens began his own scientific
investigations in Magdeburg in 1839,
where he was serving as an officer. It
fared badly with him at his first ex
periment, says the London Daily News.
He had heard that his cousin, a llano
varian artillery officer, had made suc
cessful experiments with a friction
Mtbe which was to be used for burning
lint for the firing of guns. He deter
mined to make experiments himself in
this direction, and not having proper
utensils mixed a watery pulp of phos
phorus and chlorate "of potash in a
pomatum pot. and covering it up well
placed it in a cool spot near the win
dow. During his absence his orderly
while cleaning the rooms placed the
pot in the oven to dry, and afterward
put it baek in its old place. Dr. Siem
ens on returning went to look at the
dangerous preparation, and had scarce
ly touched the sulphur match with
which he was going to stir it when a
tremendous explosion took place. It
blew his windows out and burst the
drum of his right ear. As he had met
with a similar accident to his other
ear a year before at target practice,
he was for the time being stone-deaf.

"After a chemical analysis of Indinn
