A MISSOURI farmer with a turn for
statistics has furnished a communica
tion to his county paper on the subject
of official salaries, in which ho states
that an official who receives $4,000 per
year salary absorbs tho price of 2G,G6fi
bushels of com at 15 cents per bushel,
or of 0,600 bushels of wheat at GO oeuts
per bushel, or 33,333 bushels of oats
at 12 cents, or the price of fifty good
farm horses. He also estimates that
a farm hand at $13 per month would
havo to work tho year round for a
quarter of a century to earn tho same
amount, aud adds that in 18G6-'67-'(S8
about 5,000 to 8,000 bushels of corn
would havo footed the bill, or 3,000
bushels of wheat.
IN Germany a railway flagman at the
crossing at a small station thought he
had the grip when all the other employes
of tho road were getting leave of ab

to the company's doctor to bo exam

time to fjlop at such a small place, so
ho telegraphed the flagman to bo
standing beside the track when tho
train went past, with his tongue out,
and ho would examine liim on tho fly.
Tho flagman dutifully stood with his
tongue out all the time tho train was
slowly passing his station, aud tho
next day the company received from
passengers a dozen complaints of tho
impertinent conduct of one of its em
ployes at the station.

This littlo sign measures about 12x3
inches, and all it bears is "M. W. Ful

wliich are now nearly effaced by time.
Near the top of the stairs is its dupli

office near the end of an .upper hall

Justice of tho United States. His
office used to be in this building, and
no ono has over disturbed his signs.
The sign of an ordinary man who had
moved or absconded or died would
havo been quickly effaced, but the

The Compass.
The compass needle points to the
north because practically the earth is a
magnet, not difforing essentially in its
magnetic properties from a bar of mag
netized steel. It has two poles of
greatest intensity, and, like most largo
steel magnots, there are several sup
plemental poles of lesser intensity.
Just as the pole of ono.bar magnet at
tracts the end of: another, so the mag
netic poles of the earth behave toward
poles of the compass needle, unlike
poles attracting and like poles repelling
each other.
It is well to modify the sta'ement
that the needle points north and south.
As a matter of fact, there are but few
localities on the earth where it does
point due north and south, and these
are constantly changing. __ An irregular
line diawn from the mouth of the
Orinoco Iliver, through the' east coast
of Hay Li, Charleston', S. C., and De
troit, Mich., represents very nearly the
line in which there is no variation at
the present timo. In all the place's
cast of this line the north end 5f the"
needle swings slightly to tho west
ward in all places west of it, to the
eastward. At the north of tho Colum
bia River the variation of the compass
is about twenty-two degrees, east. in
Alaska it is from forty to sixty degrees
east midway between New York and
Liverpool.it is about thirty-five degrees
Tho reason is that tho compass
needle points, not to tho geographical
but to tho magnetic poles, and these
do not coincide in position. The mag
netic north pole is at present! on or'
near the south western :sbore of Boothia
Peninsula,in the northern part of North
Its position is constantly changing,
and in the last live hundred years it
lias moved about half the distance
round tho geographical polo. During
the three hundred years in which ob
servations have been carefully made
at tho Magnetic Observatory in Paris,
the variations have changed from eleven
degreos tweuty minutes east of north to
twenty-two degrees ten minutes west.
In the United Slates tho rate of the
change in variation differs much in dif
ferent parts of the country. In Wash
ington State it changes at the rate of
about seven minutes a year in Arizona

Itevolt of a Ship's Crew llceuuse Thoy

A story of mutiny has been told by
Capt. Win. Pratloy, of tho ship Biela,
which. arrived in New York from Rio

Beina, an English rice ship from Calcutta,
which put into Bio commanded by the
second mato and with nine sailors before
tho mast. The captnin, first mate and
threo seamen woro in irons.
"The mutiny on tbe Beina was an ex
citing affair," said Capt. Piatloy. "Sev
eral days out from Calcutta some bod pork
was given to the sailors, aud during the
night nine of them mutinied. When they
complained of the poor food tbe captain
trouted them harshly and Baid lie would
starve them into submission. The men
who rebelled armed them with pistols and
old 6Words, and, headed by the bocoud
mate, commanded the captain to give tbem
tbo key to tho store-room. This
tbo captain refused to do, and
ho summoned to his aid the
first mate nnd fivO seamen. They,
too, armed themselves, but thoy could only
find two pistols and a musket. The fight
was evidently of short duration, for two of
the sailors who stood by the captain wore
shot down. Tho captain, hist mato and
three of his sailors wero placed in irons by
tho mutineers, who by tho aid of tho second
mate brought tho ship to ltio, Tho Brit

A big financial institution which has no
counterpart in the country is soon to be
organized in New York. It will have for
its principal the'capitalization of indus
trial enterprises in such shape that they
will bo available for general investment.
Iu fact, it is the intention to reproduco
one of the great industrial corporations
which have within teu or fifteen years
opened nn enormous field for investment
in England. The new institution will
have a capital of $5,000,000, and it
will be a joint English and Ameri
can company, with headquarters in
New York and London. The plan of or
ganization, entirely unlike that of any
American corporation, is well worth study-'
ing. The capital of tbo company will bo
made up of 99,825 ordinary shares^ of $500
cach, and 175 so-called founders' shares,
each of $500. Tho founders' shares are to
be divided among twouty-five subscribers,
each of whom must pay in addition to $50C
por share $5 cash per share, to be used
in mcotitiglhe expense of organization. The
founders' sharos aro to be retained in the
treasury of the company, and the earnings
on tboso Bhares are to bo constitute
the entire compensation of the direc
tors of tho corporation. J3nch of the
fouuders will be requested* in addition to
subscribe or guarantee a subscription of
200 ordinary sbareB, thus securing $1,250,
000 of capital stock before the books are
opt-ned for publio subscription. These ar
rangements apply to ouo-half tho total
capital stock, which will be placed in this
country and tho remaining half will be
disposed of in prccisoly the samo manner
iu England. The relations of the foun
ders' shares to the ordinary shares will be
that they shall bs entitled to one-half tho

Tho recect putragbs Committed by the

male and female prisoners have led.to in
quiry on the jjart of various correspond
ents and others into some of the methods
employed by the Russian government to
tbe end of suppressing facts and creating
favorable impressions, with the result of
ascertaining that a.vast number of persons
of the higher clnssc-B aro engaged in the
work of representing the Russian empire
as a veritable paradise and the war as nn
angel of meroy. The articles written by
George Ivennan, and published in tbo Cen
tury, depicting.the horrors of the Russian
prison Byslem, obtained a wide circulation
in Russia, until the censors Kucceedod in
preventing copies of the magizino contain
ing the articles from passing through
the postofflces but tho seed had been sown
and the government found it necessary to
take steps to destroy tbe crop, aud at the
time rende"- tho effects of tho articles
in America as nearly as possible nugatory.
With this objoct in view the government
lately sent to the United States fifty spios,
or agents, thirty-five women and fifteen
men, charged with the duty of endeavoring
to modify tho impression made by tho
articles on the American people, and also
secure the passago of au extr.itition

fugitive political offenders. Tboso emis
saries are under assumed names, nud are
kuowu only to tho secret police at St.'
Petersburg. Thoy are well supplied with
money and aro instructed to hold no opon
communication with one another.
Tho ostensible objoct of their visit to
America is to lecture on Russian Riibj:cU,
which discourses will bo supplemented by
the publication of articles iu the vari
ous newspapers laudatory of tho czar aud
his government. Ten of tho fifty arc directed
