It would be impossible to fail
to sympathize with the Hon.
William McKinley in his financial
misfortunes. He endorsed the notes
of a friend and the small competency
that he had secured has been swept
away. Mr. McKinley was a compara
tively poor man, his possessions be
fore this catastrophe being estimated
at only twenty or thirty thousand

New Road Rill.
A bill looking toward better roads
in Illinois was introduced in the leg
islature this week that looks fair
enough to all concerned. The text
of the bill was as follows: It pro
vides that the board of county com
missioners of counties not under
township organization, when they
become satisfied that the public in
terests of their county demand and
and justify special actions for the
drainage and construction or im
provement of permanent hard roads
therein, may appoint three resident
freeholders of the county not inter
ested in the construction of the pro
posed improvements as commis
sioners to view, survey and locate
One or more roads, beginning at and
leading from the county seat of the
Countv or such other and eliffible
points as may be deem.id proper for
the public convenience, and ter
minating at anv point within the
county. The commissioners, assist
ed by a civil engineer, are to make
surveys and report to the county
board, with estimates of cost. The
board shall discuss the advisability
of submitting the question of such
improvement to a vote of the people.
The question also as to whether the
payment for such roads shall be made
by annual tax or by issuing county
bonds at 6 per cent per annum is re
quired to be submitted to a vote of
the people. This bill makes ample
provision for the manner in which
elections are to be held in which such
questions are submitted, also as to
the denominations of bonds and man
ner of issuance. All roads construct
ed under the provisions of the act are
to be free to public travel and to be
kept in proper repair by the county
"Where Kauri Cum Is Found.
Kauri gum is formed of the torpentina
that has exuded from the kauri tree, a
species of pine which is the finest and
for general purposes the most useful
forest tree in New Zealand. Thirty
years ago the Maoris were the only peo-
Ele who employed themselves in search
lg for this gum, which at that time was
to be found on or cropping out of the
rurface of the ground, where perhaps
ages before forests of kauri had stood.
After a few years' exports the Maoris
began to dig for the gum a few inches
below the surface. As the uses for it in
creased, its market value rose, and pres
ently Europeans betook themselves to
digging for it, until at the present time
there are probably 4,000 whites and 1,000
Maoris engaged in the work in the Auck
land provincial district, where alone the
rum is to be found. Hence the output
has steadily increased during the last
thirty years, notwithstanding that the
gum is not being reproduced, except to
a very inappreciable extent, in the exist
ing forests, and these are being rapidly
cut down because of the commercial
value of the timber.
Within a measurable period of time
the production of the gum must cease,
although it is expected that at the pres
ent rate it will take CO years to exhaust
the deposits in the Auckland district. In
some places gum bearing land has been
purchased from the crown for settlement
purposes, and the gum unearthed in
plowing it has been sold for enough to
pay the purcluvse money of the land and
for plowing, fencing and sowing it as
well. London Tunes.

Manners at a Tea Drinking.
On one point at least we may con
iratulate ourselves, and that is "on the
improvement in tea table manners.
Some old fashionc d folk used to signal
ize the conclusion of their tea drinking
by turning the cr. p upside down in the
saucer. In other circles the recognized
rign of a disinclin ttion for more tea was
the placing of the spoon in the cup in
stead of in the saut er. When the queen's
first prime minister, Lord Melbourne,
was a lad, residing at Glasgow in the
bouse of one of th university professors
about the end of the last century he
wrote to bis mother an account of the
Slasgow table nia.iners.
"We drink hetlths at dinner," he
writes, "hand rou id the cake at tea and
put our spoons ii to our cups when we
desire to have no more exactly in the
game manner that we used to behave at
Hatfield, at Eton .mil at Cambridge."

Oddities A bout Men's Weight.
Professor Huxley declares that the
proper weight of man is 154 pounds,
made up as follows: Muscles and their
appurtenances, 63 pounds; skeleton, 24
pounds: skin, 10J pounds; fat, 23 pounds;
brain, 3 pounds; abdominal viscera, 11
pounds; blood (th t which would drain
from the body), 7 J ounds. The heart of
such a man should beat 75 times in a
minute, and he should breath 15 times
luring each minut At that rate, in 24
hours he would Mtiate 1,750 cubic feet
of pure air to the stent of 1 per cent.
In the same length of time he should
throw off through the skin 13 ounces of
water, :00 grains of solid matter and 400

Kfl'ect of Sun aid Moon on Steel.

by the fine steel workers at Sheffield,

if exposed f r any considerable length of
tiuiti to the light of the sun either in
summer or winter. A similar effect is

Letting the Soul Pass Oat.
The writer remembers a case of a dy
ing woman some few years ago in Sus
sex. She was gasping, and apparently
was undergoing the last struggle in great
distress. The nurse went to the window
and opened it. At once the dying wom
an breathed deeply and expired. The
writer said to the nurse, "Why did you
pen the window':" The answer given
was, "Surely you wouldn't have her soul
go up the chimney?" Popular Science
Typhoid Fever From Ice Cream.
It is a quite well established fact that
ice may carry th i germs of typhoid
fever. Instances have been noted. The
Lancet gives an tccount of the out
break of this fever in London, which
has leen traced to some cheap ice cream
peddled about the streets by Italians.

The Use or Sudden Wealth.
Tho disposition toward mad extrava
gance, so often eecn in wealthy young
men, is not always the result of means
to gratify ovc rslrong desires, but of pos
itive "foolishness," cr mental incompe
tence, which, under the pressure of nar
row means, would not only never have
developed italf, but never have existed.
"I have succeeded," said a very great
statesman, "Iteeause I have never had
enough to live on." The silly marriages
the old frequently make are in just the
same way the result not of loss of judg
ment, but for a weakening of the resist
ing power of the will. The consequences
of unexpected wealth are, however, as
often fortunate as unfortunate, for they
are theproducttof the natural character.
We have seen a man who inherited a
fortune very large for his wants become
during the remainder of his life almost
or quite miserly, but that was only on a
large scale, tho result of the impulse to
save, which on a small one had been pro
nounced, a "wise economy," aggravated
a little, it may be, by a foible timidity
about spending, which is constantly
noticeable also in men who were born
rich. But we have also seen a lady pre
viously suspected of meanness become
habitually and rather splendidly liberal.
Serenity, which wo hold with the
Quakers to be an eminent virtue, often
comes with unexpected good luck, and
gracionsness. too, the latter being the re
sult wo conceive of the disappearance
either of a grudge at fate or of some in
ner fear of being suspected of "booing"
on account of poverty. Suspiciousness
is pre-eminently the foible of the poor,
and frequently though not always dis
appears with wealth and the confidence
it brings, a confidence occasionally so
great and so needed as radically to im
prove manner. London Spectator.
