Curious Blunders Made by Reporters

Writing is their business, but they
often make ridiculous mistakes in the
haste of "catching an edition."
In a story about a mad dog scare on
8taten Island the reporter wrote. "Fo

The head of a prominent Wall street
house, hi telling about the action of
the directors of a certain company,
was quoted as saying. "It cauie like

a verdict of $2.000 for injuries reced?

This from a Brooklyn reporter: "He
tried to end his life by suicide."
This one might have been due to an
error In typewriting: "The girl was at

Long Island, evidently laboring under
great excitement, wired. "Mrs OoOCge

The Importance of Iron to the Elec?
trical Industry.
The very root of the electrical Indtl ?
try is iron. Without iron it is doubt?
ful if the larger generators and the
mighty motors could be built, for the
powerful magnets upon which these
inventions depend for their power are
all made of soft iron either iu the
fortu of thin plates or long wires cov
gfod with insulation.
Nearly every one is familiar with
the common horseshoe muguet, which
is but a piece of 6teel bent in the
shape of a horseshoe and charged with
magnetism. When a steel bar of this
shape is rubbed against another mag?
net it is "charged" and will remain so
1 for a long time. The magnets used in
] electrical machinery are of the Indue
tion type?that Is, the magnetism van?
ishes Just as soon us the current is
taken away from them. If you wind
a long Insulated wire tig ;tly around a
1 soft iron core and send through this
1 wire a weak current of electricity the
1 core will be instantly possessed of
strong magnetic qualities. This fact
Is the basis of all electric motors and
generators. The field coils are usually
: made of a soft irou core wound with
yards and yards of insulated wire
When the current is sent through this
\ wire the soft iron core is turned into a
powerful magnet, and this magnetic
power is used to drive motors or to
generate more electricity? Electrical

the "boss" entered. He glanced about
him and then approached the young
bookkeeper.
"What time Is It?" he asked.
The young man kept on figuring, and
the boss put a hand on his dealt and
repeated the question.

RAPID STOriY WRITING.
A Beast That Dumas Made, a Wager
and the Result.
For rapidity of composition the prize
among novelists must be awarded to
Alexandre Dumas, who died with over
8,000 books to his credit, in all of which
he had some share. According to Mr.
Arthur F. Davidson, one of his blog
raphers, he often declared that when
once he had mapped out In his mind
the scheme of a novel or a play the
work was practically accomplished,
since the mere writing of it presented
no difficulty and could be performed as
fast as the pen could travel. Some one
disputed this: the result was a wager.
Dumas had In his head the plan of
the "Chevalier de la Maison Rouge."
of which he had not yet written a
word, and he made a bet of 100 looll
that he would write the first volume of
the novel in seventy-two hours. The
volume was to be formed by seventy
five large foolscap pages, e?teh page
containing forty-five lines and each
line fifty letters. In sixty-six hours
Duma? had done the work in his fair,
flowing hand, disfigured by no eras ons
?and fhe bet was won with six tours

Danced In Court.
An unusual scene was once witness?
ed in a French law court, the civil
tribunal at Nantes. The proprietor of
a local theater had engaged a young
lady dancer, whose performances at
rehearsals did not come up to his ex
pectatious. He therefore would not
let her appear, and the fair dancer
took action against him for breach of
contract. The defendant alleged that
she had not even learned the first
steps of her art. and. here being a plain
issue, the judge determined to decide
for himself. A space was accordingly
forthwith cleared on the floor of the
court, and in these unusual surround
ings the young lady duly went through
her steps and pirouettlngs. in the re?
sult the judge felt justified in certify?
ing that she was quite an expert dan?
cer and decided the case in her favor.
Henceforth she advertised herself as
the only dancer iu the country with a
legal certificate of proticieucy.?Lon?

Poets and Dogs.
Foets have always loved dogs. In
this poets and boys resemble each oth?
er. Walter Savage Landor was de?
voted to I is dog (Hallo and Ryron's
epitaph upon his dog Boatswain we all
remember:
To mark a friend's remains these stones
arise.
1 never hail but one. and there he lies.
Cowper was very fond of bis dog.
and we know how Charles Lamb, who
was a prose |ns i. loved his Dash and
how Mrs. Browning appreciated the
little Flush to whom she Indited a
poem. The Earl of Shaft es bury kept
his noble collie in his library with him
at all times und Samuel Rogers al?
ways walked out with his dog. Scott
declined ati invitation to dinner when
his dog died, saying that he could not
accept on account of the "loss of an
old friend." - St. James' Qagette.
The Cassowary.
The cassowary is a natural boxer
and the only bird, exc mt perhaps the
Ostrich, whose method of defense and
attack in warfare is the forward kick
?straight out. like a man?is calculat?
ed to arouse envy in the breast of any
save a crack athlete. Another i>ecu
liarity of this bird is his ability to per?

or a stone, that attracts his attention.

flower known that will grow anywhere

of the nchest and most glowing tints.
