Presently her danghler, who was beside

j A Marulnv That I'rJiiU and V'ulda Three
Thousand Every Hour.
There ure virions rumors and tales
floating about tow u among those in the
business concerning some wonderful ma
chinery over on the west side of the city
in a certain monstrous bookmaking es
tablishment. The "novel maehino'' is a large "web
press similar to the kind newspapers are
printed on, but arranged to take enrved
eloctrotyies of each page of a book in
stead of a single large metal cylinder
casting. There are two cylinders, on
each of which 1-1-1 pages may lie screwed,
and as the long strip of paper goes
through, first one side is printed and then
tho other, making it possible to print 28S
pages at every revolution. The strip of
paper, after being carried over rollers
which dry the ink, is cut, folded and
brought together in the shape of a small
volume, with the edges all trimmed. Ev
ery time the great cylinder goes round a
novel is printed, folded and trimmed, and
0.000 of these are turned out every hour,
while, if it were necessary, T,000 or 8,000
might be the quota.
From the printing press these Looks
lire carried ;:) a little machine that looks
like a sewing machine, and two wire
stitches are taken in the back of each.
The stitched volumes are then carried to
the covering machine, where they are put
side to side iu a long feeding trough. At
the end of litis is a little compartment
large e;ii.;; ,h to take a book, carried on
an endless c'i dn running over wheels at
each end. indeed, there are a series of
little compartments on this chain, and
as the chain moves along each one re
ceives a book. As the book proceeds a
wheel running in a gluepot presses
against its back, smearing it with glue.
A little further along there is a pile of
covers that comes up at just the right
moment, leaving a cover sticking to the
gluey back of the book.
In this way ."50 books can bo covered
?very minute. Two hr.ndiv d and fifty
thousand of these paper covered novels
are thus turned out every two weeks, and
extra editions of oii.o.U or so are often
worked in besides. New York Commer

The last British woif was killed iu Suth
erlandshire about the year lToo by a man
named Poison. Who will be handed
down to posterity as the slayer of the last
British rabbit? What a pathetic picture
might be drawn of the last cock pheas
ant! Perhaps some Macanlay of the far
distant future may astonish his readers
by his account of what went on in the
rural districts of Great Britain in the
lie would relate how, owing to the
scantiiK'ss of the population, men used to
shoot partridges and pheasants bv the
thousand on ground then and for gener
ations past the sites of immense towns;
telling how the great garden of England,
then mapped out into small tenements,
each laboriously and minutely culti
vated, with no waste of wood or hedge

furiously ridden over by hundreds of
horsemen in pursuit of an animal long
since extinct in the land and only known
to the curious in old books of natural
history. Macmillan's Magazine.
French Servanl un.l Callliv Shopkeepers.
The one extravagance of dress of the
French servant girl lies in having her
best giwvn made by a dressmaker instead
of making it herself. Hence her corsages
always fit her well, and her plain stuff
costume has a degree of style about it
which she is fully capable of appreciat
ing. The ladies of the so called bour
geois set the wives and daughters of
rich shopkeepers and manufacturers
very rarely indulge in rich fashionable
toilets. Mine. Boucicaut, the foundress
of the Bon Marche, was worth millions
upon millions. Always arrayed in black
silk or satin of excellent quality, but
made in the plainest possible style, she
lx)ked to the last hour of her life just
what she was tho greatest and richest
shopkeejicr in P.iris possibly, but still a
Bhopkeeiier, and one that never tried to
look like anything different. When the
daughter of one of these wealthy trades
people marries, her trousseau is usually
very superb, but the famous masters of
the art of dress are seldom or never
called upon to exert their inventive tal
ents in her behalf. Lucy Harper in
How Air IU-nistN a Locomotive.
Experiments made by the scientists
appointed for that purposely the French
government show that the resistance of
the atmosphere to the motion of a high
speed train often amounts to half the to
tal resistance which the locomotive must
overcome. Two engines, of which the
resistance was measured repeatedly and
found to be 1!) pounds per ton at 87 miles
Iter hour, were coupled together and
again tried. In the second trial the re
sistance fell to 14 pounds per ton, the
second engine leing shielded from at
mospheric resistance by the first. It
strikes me that tliere is an idea for some
inventor half unmasked in this item.

"Uncle" Attaway Johnson, of Early
county, Georgia, relates hisexperience
in life saving as follows:
"The road hands were ordered to
work the road from the Jordan ford
on Dry creek to tho Blakely court
house. Among them was a great
brawny, muscular man by the name
of 'Cap' Uarefield, who was addicted
to drink. Cap' came up to town in
the morning and got drunk so drunk,
in fact, that he thought himself a per
fect Hercules. He staggered about
among the other hands until the mid
dle of the forenoon, when a large oak
tree standing by the roadside in tho
neighborhood of Katie Perryman's
present home was ordered to be cut
down. 'Cap' swore he'd catch the tree
when it fell and stood in pition to
do so with outstretched arms, while
the axe men made the chips fly cut
ting it down.
"His friends tried to pursuade him
out of the foolish notion of holding
up in his arms a falling tree two feet
thick. All to no purpose. There he
stood. Presently the tree began to
creak and fall, and 'Cap,' moving1
directly under it, without the tremor
of a muscle, braced himself to support
it. Uncle Attaway, seeing that cer
tain -death awaited him, sprang for
ward and with his fist let Cap have
a 'jo darter' in tho bur of his ear.
This landed him out of danger, but

Mr. William White, writing from
the Ruskin museum, Sheffield, Eng
land, records an instance of sagacity
in horses. Bordering the park is a
strip of land, doomed to bo built upon
but meanwhile lying waste and used
for common pasturage, on which the
horses under notice were leisurely
grazing. A pony in a cart, having
been unwisely left by the owner for a
time unattended on the grass, sud
denly started off, galloping over the
uneven ground at the risk of over
turning the cart. The two horses,
upon seeing this, immediately joined
in pursuit with evident zest.
My first supposition, that they were
merely joining in the escapade in a
frolicsome spirit, was at once dis
proved by the methodical and business-like
manner of their procedure.
They soon reached the runaway, by
this time on the road, one on one side
of the cart and one on the other; then,
by regulating their pa -e, they cleverly
contrived to intercept his progress by
gradually coining together in advance
of him. thus stopping him immedi
ately in tho triangular corner they
formed. Until the men came up to
the pony's head they remained stand
ing thus together, quite still: then the
two horses, evidently satisfied that all
was now right, without fuss trotted
back again together to their grass.
