New York' New Diana.
The new Diana f r the tower cf the
Madison Squre Garden will be of alu
minium. Cojper was the material of the
original ci.u.ste podJes.. who iointetl
with her bow to the wind's eye from that
lofty pinnacle awhile a.o. The white
metal is far better for the purpose on
account of its comparatively small
weight for the bulk. It i only abont a,
heavy as chalk. The wholesale price of
it has been brought down by improved
processes to $ I. 3 a pound. Perchance
aluminium will, at some time in the fu
ture, lie the material
ployed for making statues.
Inasmuch as there is plenty of it to be
had, every clay bank being a mine of it,
it may reasonably be expected that pro
cesses will eventually be discovered for
separating it in unlimited quantities at
a comparatively cheap rate from the ma
terials with which it is found combined
in nature. One important advantage
that it has for statuary and monumental
purpose is the fact that it does not cor
rode and is a untarnishable as gold.
The aluminium Diana is King put to
gether by a New York firm. She will
be 13 feet high, whereas her predecessor
was IS feet in height. The sculptor, St.
Gaudens, and other exjierts were of the
opinion that the original goddess was
too big. So they took it down and or
dered a new one, while the big copper
huntress was shipped to the World's fair
at Chicago. Exchange.
Dakota's Great AYhratfield.
A large party of foreign agricultural
commissioners to the World's fair, un
der the escort of Governor Shcrtridge of
North Dakota, saw some harvesting
operations in that treat wheat country
a few days ago which must have opened
their eyes, accustomed as they are to the
small acreages of Europe. Driving
through a vast wheatfield bounded only
by the horizon, they Kheld as many as
43 twine binders moving in a steady pro
cession half a mile long and cutting
great swaths of grain.
They were told by the owner of this
farm that in harvesting time he cut a
square mile of grain in a day and em
ployed SO men to shock it up. At noon
the visitors sat down to a prairie chicken
dinner on a mammoth scale, which ex
cited their surprise almost as much as
the prairie acres on which they gazed.
Afterward they visited the famous
Dalrymple farm, covering 34,000 acres of
ground, and saw immerons thrashing
machines making their inroads into the
stacks of wheat which it required 10
twine binders from two to three weeks
to cut. New York I'ost.
KnslUh Taught In 1'rrnrh Schools.
The French minister of public instruc
tion has issued a circular which will have
the effect of greatly stimulating the
study of the English language in France.
In all the higher schools and training col
leges the compulsory studies hitherto
have included two modern languages,
one of which must lie German. This or
der is now annulled.
Two modern languages will be the rule
as before, and one will remain at the op
tion of the pupil, but as to the otliPr he
can choose between German and Eng
lish. Moreover, the time given to the
study of German is reduced bj- two
hours, while that devoted to English is
increased by the same length of time,
and pupils will begin their English les
sons one year earlier than hitherto.

A Phosphorescent Tree.
A large willow tree on the bank of
Tan run in Frankford fell over recentiy
and developed into a natural curiosity.
The inside of the tree, which has been
dead for several years, was found to be
a mass of phosphorescent light known
as foxfire. As darkness came on ai.d
the curious phenomenon was discovered,
hundreds of people gathered, and a
many as could get around the old trunk
went to work with hatchets and knives
to secure specimens. Soon the ground
around was strewn with small chips,
which glittc-ed like so many little stars.

of the Mactins of Head Wind
I ram North and South.
From tl e gulf of Mexico to the north
pole and from the hikes to the Rocky
mouutaius is a vast extent of country
crossod bj- no mountain chains to inter

rents. The extt nt of this country is equaled
by none on earth. Cold air being heav

the cold t ir, when coming in contact
with a wai-m current from the south, al
ways predominates, forcing the warm
air into th- upper currents.
The cam e of cyclones is the meeting
of a head wind from the north with a
head wind from the south. They meet

Adam's Stolen Kib.
In one of the many and varied com
ments on th creation of women in th
Talmud, the Emperor Hadrian is intro
duced as cot versing with Rabbi Gama
liel on seven! religious questions. With
the object of casting ridicule on the
Bible, Hadrian exclaims: "Why, your
God is repn-sented therein as a thief!
He surprised Adam in his sleep and
robbed him of one of his ribs!"
The rabbi's daughter, who was pres
ent, craves "rniission to reply to the
emperor. Tais is granted her. '-But
first let me isplore thy imperial protec
tion, puissai t sire!" she exclaims. "A
grave outrage has been ierpetrated on
our house." -Who has dared to inflict
any harm on the abode of a friend'-"
asked the sovereign.
"Under cover of the flight an auda
cious thief broke into our house, took a
silver flagon from our chest and left a
golden one it its stead." "What a wel
come thief:" cries Hadrian. "Would
that such robbers might visit my palace
every day:" "And was not the Creator
even such a t iiitf as this," archly rejoins
the blushing damsel, "who deprived
Adam of a rib, and in lieu thereof gave
him a loving, lovely bride?" Chief EuIh

NoTel Block Signal System.
TheWeehawkt-u tunnel of the West
Shore railway in New Jersey, which is
4.2'X) feet in length, has a novel block
signal systen . The arrangement con
sists of a lino of incandescent electric
lamps about 300 feet apart and placed
on a level wv.h the eye of the engine
driver. When the lamps are all alight,
it is an indication of safety. Each train
passing throcgh extinguishes the lamps
for a distance of 1,100 feet in its rear, a
result which is automatically effected
by an electric ally connected track cir
cuit, whereby the lamps are kept under
the continuous control of the train. The
curators in the signal towers at each
end of the tunnel can also extinguish the
lights in any section of the tunnel if oc
casion require. This system appears to
euibody a number of exceedingly valu
able features, and if successful in prac
tice cannot b it increase the traffic ca
pacity of a loi.g tunnel largely beyond
that which is possible by the methods f
signaling heretofore in use. Engineer
The l"r me Consort' Will.

A very large percent of these cases
of deafness and roarinj; noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears.
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Scott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to. get well it
self. It don't ret well, but always
rots worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entirely destroyed. A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
pable specialist, who goes right at
the cause of the- trouble and removes
it. is the only hope.
