Miscellaneous Matiers,
Tho Swiss railroad companies now
cover a porLion of their carriages
with a phosphorescent prepara
tion which makes them visible at
night.
Captain Boynton once thought of
going through tho u agara rapids m
his rubber suit; but ho numbered
several railroad ties and sent them
through. When they were recovered
below tho whirlpool and Boynton
saw the scars, he packed his rubber
« v ut and left.
Yerw few jioople know that a letter
piailod in a hotel envelope, which
fails to reach tne person addressed, is
pent at once to the dead-letter office,
notwithstanding the ten days’ return
notice on the corner. If you stop at
a hotel and use one of their envelopes
always mark out the name and insert
your own if you want your letter again
if it fails ro recall the person ;ul
tfresaed.
Charles Dudley Warner remarks
that August, notwithstanding its
robust name, is a flabby, watering
place sort of a month. “It is fly
time, it is dog-days time, it is flirtation
time. It is a period of general list
lisness and indecision. It is said to
he very diflicult in August to make
up tho mind cither to accept him or
reject him. And, worse still, it is apt
to bo tho latter part of the mouth be
foro he makes up his mind to pro
pose. Indeed, to speak of making up
tho mind at all in August is ueady
absurd, for there is no mind to make
up.”
The country i»eoplc near Danville,
Va., were recently swindled in a very
simple vet curious manner. Four
men rode about the country in cov
ered wagons soliciting old feather
bods from families, promising to re
place them with new ones in the
course of ton days. The reason for
doing this was that they wanted to
make mattresses to send across the
sea, and that new feathers would not
answer for this purpose. They were
quite successful, getting six large beds
from two families. They gave no
receipts, but got their Ikhls on a bare
promise.
One of tho ships advertised for sale
bv the United States government is
the Now Orleans, which was com
menced in the latter part of Deoem
ber, 1814, at Sackott’s Harbor,
N. Y. W ork on her was prosecuted
for six weeks, and was stopjied and
never since resumed. She has lain
there and rotted for the past sixty
nine years. Of course she is practi
cal Jy valueless, but it is suggested
that, as she is an object of curiosity,
drawing thousands of people annually,
canes might he made of her as sou
venirs, and greatiy to the profit of the
purchaser, as she is appraised at but
*340. She was to be of 4,300 tons
capacity.
During the war the silver level of a
senior warden, which had been worn
by Washington, had been carried
away from a Masonic lodge at Fred
ericksburg, Va, This interesting
level was deposited among the archives
of Integrity lodge, of Philadelphia, by
Warren J. Young, a former member,
together with a memorandum stating
that it was to bo retured to Freder
icksburg lodge “after the state of
Virginia, as a whole, ceases to be in
rebellion against the government of
the United States.” Tho relic was
overlooked until a few woeks ago,
when a newly elected secretary dis
covered it, and, after a correspon
dence with his southern brethren, re
*urn thorn.
Wifchhi an hour’s walk of Casino
Station, Arizona, there is a chasm so
deep that the eye can hardly see its
Sg|p? bottom. Actual measurement makes
it two thousand feet deep. The
Hlgt width varies from two hundred
feet at the bottom to fifteen hundred
feet at the top. The sides are solid
rock, but in layers of perhaps thirty
feet iu depth, each layer having a pro
jecting or shelving edgeextendmg from
six to twenty feet. Under the shelv
ing rock cliff dwellers long ago built
tlieir abodes. There are seven tiers
of those dwellings. It. is notable that
none are lower than two hundred feet
from the bottom. To what age of
the world this race belonged, or the
character and nature of tho {icople
who built these cities, neither history
nor tradition gives a trace.
