"How loug'uo stokers live?'' asked a |
Tribune rf-]>orter. of an engineer of one j
oi the swiftest ocean racers that ply be-1
twecn lUis countrj; and Eoglaiid.
<;A? ]<?'iK?.s*sttnvlxj(]v." was the uiiex-!
pdGted reply. . , ;
"Eow do they like'their work?" . J
"If they don't like their work, they
get,out: Uic-i'c are^plenfcy willing to take
t-ueir^iiaci'.-''' wafe^tae fcnsweftv' But it is
hard to persuade the average landsman
that the stoker's ;ftfe is not shortened by :

hours at a stretch, hemmed in between
two long linos'*# furnaces that1 keep the
temperature ordinarily at 120 degrees*
;ODieti:ncs sending it as high as 1G0.
The space between the furnaces is so
narrow that when the men throw in coal
thoy must tiki* caret, vxen. they" swing
bofck th(ir Iho vols/-lekfc they should burn
their arms on the furnaces behind them.
The only n;eans of ventilation is one
large, air pipe that reaches down into the
L-entre oi tiic stoicers quarters, ami on j
x big steamer the men have to -take the |
iir ii batches. On a great ocean steam- [
er like the Cmbria, the meii come on ii
g;cags or eighteen stokers ami, twelve
2oai passers, and the "watch" lasts four .
hours. The Umbria has 72 furnaces,
tviiieh require nearly 350 tons of coal a .
ilay, at a cost of almost 820,000 ?>er voyige.
"One hundred and four men are !
employed to man the furnaces, and they >
have enough, to do. They include the
;hief engineer, Lis three'assistants, and
Liinety stoke rs and coal passers.
The stoker comes on to work wearing ]
?nly a tain undershirt, liglit trousers 1 :

The probabilities.' however appeared to

a very interesting old place. I went to

way, which at one time was the largest
and "wealthiest town in Norway. It had
at one time. many monasteries and
churches. I was there three days.
In Throndjein is the cathedral in all
Norway. It was founded in 1016 by St.
Olaf, and on the ground where he ^was
buried the present building was erected
in 1151 and completed in 1210, and was
enlarged m . ioUU. . 'i'lie catneurai is a
very interesting work of gotliic arelii- .
tectare.. It was damaged three' or four
centimes ago by lire, and in .rebuilding
ft large walls' were erected, winch
changed the architectural appearance of
the structure.v It is now being restored
with very much pains and care. There
was an annual fair beirg held in Throndjem
while I* was there, and it was filled
with specimens of farmers and working
people. It was held in an open street.
It was quite crowded, and everything
was orderly and quiet, and all of the
people appeared to be comfortable, well
dressed, sturdy, vigorous and simple in
their ways, and a very lionest people.
The fair was lield lyr . business and
friendly intercourse. All the time I was
in Norway I saw no dirty poverty, no
beggars, no tramps or idle, worthless .
people. The farms all appeared to be
thoroughly taken care of. Everything
around the house was kept in good order.
Farms were in perfect condition.
The houses -were clean and comfortable,
and small and unpretending. All the
women are plain looking but vers- vigor- '
pus, and they are quiet and clean and
mild in their ways. They look as if they .
were exposed to hard work, and they
have a healthy, comfortable, satisfied
look. The men had a sturdy, manly-,
look. They look like people who have
no wealth and they appeared to be all on ;
a social level. There seemed to be no ;
distinction between them, but they wear
au aii- of independence. I-saw no drunken
people there and heard no noisy people. <
It-is a very peaceful place. Throndjem j
is "built of wooden houses, good broad .
streets, well paved, and has plenty of :
good shops. >
The suh reaches its uppermost point j
on the-1st of June. I got in Throndjem
at 7 o'clock in the morning on the ,
29th of June. There was no night. It
was broad daylight at midnight. There '
was scarcely any darkness. The sun ;
shone night and day. The people went ,
to bed regularly at an early hour, with ;
the sun shining, and' closed their shut
ters and jralled down their curtains and \
slept, and tie town vqs as quiet as if tlie ^
night was totally dark. After leaving
Throhdjein I took a ship named after 1
some ancient Norwegian king, and in [
company with fifty or sixty other tourists,
all people of respectability and intelligence,
and men from' different nations.
There were twenty-two Ameri
cans, the rest were natives ox France,
Spain, Germany, Denmark, Norway,
Sweeden and England. "V\*e went up the
coast to Tromso and then to Hammer- (
fest," the most northern to^n in the 1
world. I saw the high mountains and ;
the whole coast ^11 the way" up to the
North. car^, the extreme northern point
of Europe,
I arrived on the -1th of July. It
\yas a cold, wet day. The climate is}
harsh, cold and wet, rainy and fl*r,p. |

^hc When I was at the North capc
the sun was obscured with clouds, At
.12 o'clock at night the sun was visible
.for a time. In "winter it is dark there
ne?>xly all day, as well as all night. I
returned by the same towns, but through
different waterways. The whole of the
navigation was protected by land, therefore
the sea was mild, we were surrounded
by immense mountains, covered
with s*\qw. Cm my return to Throndjem
$ went across Norway through a country
iw^ ' ih was filled with lakes, high moun"Ufcinfl
and green valleys^ cascades and
falls, and farms well cared for. It all
had a solitary and bleak appearance. ;

a'hard one. ' The railway stations are

Prank H. Walworth has just died at
Saratoga, aged thirty-one.
The young roan descended from a-distinguished
ancestry, and might liave been
very prominent himself had it not been
for a cloud which overshadowed his life.
. His mother was a wonderfully ben/ati- :
ful woman at the time of her marriage, 1
but her husband was a mam of. dissolute .
habits, and was very cruel. The coming
of the baby // Frai'k" did not work a re- '

moved from Saratoga to Kentucky.

In 1873 Mrs. Walworth moved Lack j
to Saratoga and established a girl's school. '
Then lier ex-husband began to pester her J
with notes, making improper proposals. ?
He went farther, caused the poor woman 1

He went to New York, where liis father lived,
sent him a note to call at the Stur- 1

That was in. June, 1873. . . : j
Just before dark his father's card was {
sent up. "Show the gentleman up," :
said the son. ;
The boy. returned with the;; answer, ,
and Mr. Walworth walked quickly up to
his son's room, humming a tune as he c
did so. When he. was admitted to the, T
room, the young - m;\n placed his back; ?
against,the' d<!or, -and drawing his pistol, A
presented it at' his. father's breast. -.. c
"For Heaven's sake, what do you }
mean ?" the father cried. " Do you mean 1
to murder me ? Think of what you are 1
doing!'' ?
The son shuddered. *41 know you arc ?

(From the Atlanta Cor-siituUon.)
Is it better to break up land before
Christmas, or wait until spring? Mr.
David Dickson, of Hancock county, a
wonderfully close observer, states as the i
result of liis experience, that fall plough- J
mg gave best results in about, one year
out of seven. "When the "winter is dry
and colli, fall plowed land grew better
crops than spring plowed. ZNIrl Dickson
tested the matter by leaving strips
through, the middle o? 1'aii plowed fields,
which strips yere not broken till spring. |
Ma L>;eKsou r, experience was a xocai one;
iviE it hold good for all climates and soils?
fiie prime object of plowing land is to
loosen up tlie soil, to make it friable, so
:Hat gases may jjenetrate it, and roots
ruay grow and ramify and spread through
.t readily. Why docs land liavc to be
broken every year?. Once loosened up by
lie plow, why does it not stay loose?
Becadse it is beaten down and ran toother
by rains. Every rain drop hampers
it down, and the earth, semi-iiuid
.vhen wet, yields readily to this hammer- 1
jug. Moreover, th.;j rain water, as it <
auks in the soil carries down with it the <
iiiur particles (particularly clay)- ami ;
.odges them between tlic coarser particlcs i
>cIow. This also, tends to consolidate 1
lie soil. 1
Xow at the south our greatest rainfalls 1
ire iu winter and early spring. Hence 1
and plowed in the fall has unusual op- t
jortunities of being compacted again
jefore- planting time. But is this not s

rdicarily land is none the better for 2

walk up to the tomb and the stranger
tenderly placed his violets on the grave.

Early Thursday morning a mule was
stolen in the upper pan 01 vjrceuvme
county. A party -was organized and set
out to catch the thief. They overtook, a
v.-hite man riding the stolen mule, and ordered
him to halt. He answered that he
would kill or be killed before he would
give up the mule, and made a motion as if
to draw a weapon, whereupon he was shot
down with a shot gun and died instantly.
The parties were arrested.

Soino Fnci* and Rocollections of Mrx.' Alexander
T. Stewart. '? ' ' J'-'
Mrs. Stewart always called her lmsband
"Honey", and lie always called her
"My dear."' . . . . ...
Now that the millionaire and his
widow have passTed from earth it is .said
they never spoke harshly to each other,
but" always lived a devoted and happy
Mrs. Stewart survived her "husband
ten vears and six months. Her death !
was comparatively painless. The funeral
took place Thursday. At one o'clock
there was a private service at the beautiful
marble palacc. The remains were
taken to Garden City and the services
were held in the Cathedral of the Incarnation
which was erected through Mrs.
Stfitrnrf's After ?/? > _
vices the remains were deposited in the
crypt under the altar and elaborate precautions
will :bc taken to guard against a
desecration of the grave. :
The death of Mrs. Stewart arouses a
fresh interest in the husband. One of
the remarkable things about Alexander
X. Stewart was the brevity of his will, *
It would occupy, only four or li /e inches
and ho disposed of fifty or sixty million
dollars in less than five lines. Said he: 1
i.^Hrst?All my proj^erty and estate,
j! any and every kind of description,
xnd wherever situated, I &ive and devise
ind bequeath to my dear wife, Cornelia
M. Stewart, her heirs and assigns forsver."

lusband's property to lier was published
n the daily papers the enormous burden - rat

more than any other drugs," said jbr.
3. >1. Wlielpiey, editor of the National
Uragfjixt, in a conversation with a reporter.
"Chemists have for several years said it-r
ft'as possible to make quinine chemically,
;nd tlie world of those interested has been
waiting for some one to do it. In 1S82 a -
frenchman announced lie liao. aiscoverea
[be process, and deposited a sample of; Ms.
'quinine' with the Frencli Institute. On
j.vuniualion it proved to bo sulphate of ammonia
instead of sulphate of quinine. Most
of the experiment has been directed toward
making quinine of cinehonidine, which is
made from the same hark, but "is of lesser
value and is cheaper than quinine. 'Chemically
there is little difference between them.
Cinehonidine consists of 19 parts carbon,
22 parts Jiydrogen, Sports nitrogen and 1"^
part oxygen: quinine contains 20 parts of
carbon, 24 parts hydrogen, 2 parts nitrogen
and '? parts oxygen. Ji ue pro mem uas
been with chemists to add 1 pari carbon, 2 f
purts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen. They >
have not been successful in this endeavor, :
There is nothing wonderful in the claim .
that quinine could be made from other
things than the bark.
"Fruit essences are now made without
fruits, and other items of chemical stock
are made chemically without the interven- !
lion of the usual natural product. Yet the
medical world was disturbed last Semtem-''
her when Dr. Cresswell Hewitt, of London,
announced that he had discovered a process
to make quinine. He made no effort to
r>sf.ih1isli this claim or submit his oroduct
tc test; but 1 have just received a letter from. $
London telling of tlie formation of a com-")
pany to manufacture the drug on Dr. Hewitt's
process. Hejstill keeps all particulars :
to himself, audit is not known whether the
cinchona bark is the basis.of his process, or .
from what he manufactures the drug. The
company is called the Atlas Quinine Company,
and I am informed has large capital,
if Hewitt has discovered what he claims
he will have made us independent;of the '*
irregular supply from the countries where
the trees grow that produce the bark,.and '
while the price of the drug may not be1 ma-1
teriallv reduced it will not rise in time of
war in those countries. Then, too, his success
will stimulate other chemists to exper- I
imcnts looking to the manufacture of other
drugs without reliance on the natural
product. Morphine may be made .from .
something other thanopjum^etc. It, however.
remains to be seen what Br. -Hewitt
has really accomplished."'
The Editorial of the Future.-. :
The days ot editorial essays m a daily '
paper have passed, and what is now wanted }
are short, snappy expressions, of opinion,
sharp and directly*to the point, without-.~
proloxity. It is a great thing for a youDgiA;*
writer to learn to stop when he gets through, J
a lesson which some older writers .who
have been fairly successful have never ,
learned. Long editorials are more fre- "
quentJv a ?-ign of laziness than of ability. '
Ox course tllere are some subjects which.
require exhaus' /e treatment, but under
ordin&'rv circumstances lona: editorials are
written because the editor has neither the :
time nor the brains to write short ones.
Thf >hort editorial, the concise clearly ,x
written article, will go to make up the
moJel paper of the future. Punctured "by
j paragraph is more than an alliterative
conceit. The paragraph is the most ?orm- *
| Ktaoie weapon m me cauors arsenal, ana
liie long editorial is the least effective. Old.
fogies may speak with admiration of die
"thoughtful"' writer who turns the long
newspaper columns, but the man who will
weild real inliucnee is he who can put his
"thmisrht" in :i few oithv -entenees. Ver
biatre has had its day, and in the best papers ?
brains are slowly taking its place.?Tlt&
