A MODERN SAMSON.
Itcntarknble Feat? With Cauuou. Hurrel?
ul L< ???I nutt Har Iron.
Ki om thc Troy, New York, Times.
I j ro?oso to give you a short sketch
of tho life of a wan who wa- little
known outside ot the village ot' Gran
ville (.'oilier-, in Washington county,
whore he was bom and spout tho mo-t
of a long lib. Ii Ls known Of him.
and eau he proved, that ho has per
formed teats 01 strength unsurpassed
by any niau that has lived in ancient
atidn.o lern limos, excepting, ofcoitrso,
the Biblical Samson. Ills name is or
was. Stearn Carpenter. Hi* occupa
tion was that ol a .''armer. Being nat- |
urallv of a very quiet, peacoful dlspo
sltioii mid a member orthe so.Ioty ol
Friends, ho never did anything ior
display to ai tract attention, but the
?eats ?t strength he performed vere
done moro to satisfy himself and to
seo how much he could lift titan ni.y
thing else. All his lifting was done]
by main strength, without harness of I
One ot bis greatest feats was lifting!
i h<>\ lilied with iron, which weighed
1,900 pounds, which is cqu&l to lifting
?3,S00 pounds in a harness. He lifted
it with ea?e with hh hands by grasp?
lng a rope or chain w hieb was bound
.Hound the box tosccurc it. He did not
know the weight ot* the box ol iron at
the time, and wa? afterwards heard to
say that had he known it weighed so
near a ton he would have j.ut on thc
other 100 pounds and lined the whole.
At another time he lifted a cannon
that weighed 1,100 pounds and shoul
dered it. A' LVunstock's Landing, on
tho Champlain canal, near Whitehall,
one day while waiting for a load Ot j
merchandise, he lifted a barrel ofi
white lead with case. His neighbors. I
when killing legs if Stearn happened
to he around, would ask him to guess
thc weight of a hog just killed. I fit
happened to bo a big one, weighing
lour hundred or live hundred pounds,
he would -toop down and twist his
rutgers int" the bristles, and in that
way would bit the carcass clear from
tho ground urn! LI:- -S on its weight.
Ile performed one the greatest teats
of strength on record after he had
reached the age ol SOVCIity-fivo \ears.
J lc lifted two twenty-four toot Iron
rails by grasping ono i.i each hand,
and walked oil with them. The rails
wete resting on wooden horses, so he
did not stoop down to ??'t them. O.e
day in haying he was going iroin thc
field Willi his mon to the house for
dinner. They were walking along the
road together when one of his mon,
tot- miseblof, eulie- up behind him, and,
by a skillful trip, throw Carpenter
down. He gathered himself up and
said nothing about it. Ile walked on
to the house, and alter dinner, when
returning to the field with hi- n en,
they came along to thc placo where thc
mau gave him the i'all. Ile suddenly
turned upon tho man, and, grasping
him by tho shoulders and tho seal ol
his trousers, lifting him and hurled
him hign In thc air above him and
over a seven rail fence, by the -ide ot
which they happened to I?-.' walking.
The man '.ame down in iii?; meadow :i
row or moro from the fence, consider
ably shaken up, but not badly hurt.
Mr. Car? enter wu- not a gigantic man
in si/o. liewa- about six feet tall,
and appeared much loss than that,
owing to his massive build. There
was no superfluous flesh upon him.
bul the muscle- ot his shoulders am'
neck seemed to be piled upon him, si
great was their si/.e. This gave bin
s stooping "appearance. In a crowd
:i casual observer would not bo like!;
t" pick him otu for OuC ol' (lie st rouges

? tiotnists have for several years said it
was ixtekstblo t<? make quinine chemically,
and thc world ot those interested has becu
waiting for some one to do it. lu 18#2 a

of the experiment has been directed toward
making quiuiuc of ciuckonidioc, which i
made from tiie -ame bark, '?ut :> . : Icssei
Vahle and i- cheaper than quinine. C hili!
ically ibero is little difference between them.

been with chemists ti> add l part carbon, 2
pai U hydrogen and l part oxygen. Th
have not been successful in this endeavor.
There is nothing wonderful in tho claim
thai quinine could bc made from other
things than the bark.
