R. Jav Walsh, I at.j.. Austin Brainaru, f ' CORN FOR FUEL,. . When we read in the papers about the burning 6T corn by western farmers instead of wood and coal we are apt to think snch fuel rather costly. But there is another view to take of the matter. . If there is a surplus of corn so that it cannot be sold at a profit, it is cheaper to burn it than it is to burn wood, which cannot be as easily replaced as corn can. It is a fact that corn has been cheaper than coal at certain times and places in the West, and every bushel burned has Baved just so much more valu able fuel, besides making it possible for the farmer who used the corn for fuel to get something for the remainder of his crop. The Philadelphia Ledger thuB for cibly presents this view of the case. It takes a tree twenty or thirty years, atle&st, to grow into useful size for cutting and timber is wanted for manv other trarDoses besides feeding the Kitchen fires. Tet, of these political Jeremiahs who pity the farmer for burning his extra corn crop how many of 'them ever care when he burns up a tree that not the next season or many seasons can replace! It is only the shock to a preconceived idea that gets in its Jeremiahs on this subject. If the western farmer's use of corn as fuel kept either mush or pone from his children's stomachs, then there would be occasion for lament. As it is, it costs him far lean. -wron the snot, than coal would delivered at his door. It costs too much, when coni is plenty,- to convey his surplus crop to a market; so if he burns it to cook by and saves his trees thereby and his coal money, how can that be wasteful in a crop that will come again next year? There is more agricultural nonsense aired at this time than almost any other nonsense, which, in the silly season, and even with the electric execution just passed, is saying a great deal. - All of which is interesting and to the point. Still, the growing of corn fuel will probably not be seriously advocated. trical appliances, including telephones and electric lights, before the older companies found it out. He derived all his electrical power from storage batteries put up by himself, the dangerous quality of dy namos preventing their uae in the rcckery in which he lives and works. The number of animals thrown over board into the Atlantic is very great.' Out of 185 cargoes of animals sent to British ports in one year from Canada, consisting of 61,093 head of cattle, 61,383 sheep and seventy-five pigs, 658 cattle, 1,170 sheep and one pig were consigned to the ' deep luring the voyage. Of the 432 cargoes exported from the United States' to that country, comprising 138,661 head of cat tle, 30,317 sheep and seventeen pigs, 1,570 of the first and 857 of. the second class of this live stock was thrown overboard dur ing the voyage, thus numbering 4,856 animals which were pitched into the sea tot the year. - . - It is given as the opinion of a leading official of the Koads Improvement associa tion of the State of New, York that the de moralization of agriculture 'and the in crease in farm mortgages have one princi pal cause in the poor condition of the pub lic roads. Orain is carried a thousand miles by rail or canal at little more ex pense than is involved in hauling it, dur ing a great part of the year, from thous ands of farms to the nearest railway sta tion, and, indeed, during some months, the roads are altogether unfit for the transportation of heavy loads. It is fre quently urged, and with perfect truth, that Eastern farms should yield more dairy products, garden vegetables and small fruits for market, but, in order that these shall prove profitable, it is said, it is necessary to haul large loads and thus re duce the cost of handling. Again, milk and eggs must be carried to market regu larly at every season of the year, and the condition of many country roads at cer tain times is a practical discouragement to the building up of this industry. H. L. Lufkin has just put before the Firemen's convention at Detroit, Michi gan, an admirable system of extinguishing fires by electricity. Mr. Lufkin proposes to modify the present system of auto matic sprinklers by the use of a motor and pump and a complete system of sprinkler piping. On each floor, or in any number of places on the floor, are placed in con venient positions push buttons for the starting of the motor and pump, and the opening at the same time of any valve required. In a theater, for instance, sets of switches controlling the entire house could be located in any number of places about the building. On the discovery of a fire, say in one of the dressing rooms, the sprinkler could be started in the room from any of the respective switch boards or in the room itself. In the same manner the exits and lobbies could be filled with streams of water, which would allow of the escape of the audience, even though the fire should be raging around them. The complete and instantaneous control of masses of water thus gained, and the abil ity to localize their flow, suggest possibili ties of Are extinction which will materi ally inorease its ease and certainty. paper writers," the "Acorn," "Want to Know," and two "Ana-rust" societies. The Equity club is peculiar in that it has no local habitation.beine a correspond ence club for women engaged in the study and practice of law. Its members are scattered over two continents and com municate only by means of contributed letters which are printed annually. There are a number of Press clubs, educational J and industrial unions, social science, and health protective clubs,and the outgrowths of the "Woman's club" of Chicago are a physiological society, a protective agency for women and children, and an industrial art association with five classes. The Friday club, also of Chicago, has a membership of one hundred north side young women who, under the leadership of Mrs. De Koven, daughter of Senator Farwell,' meet once a week and unravel the mysteries to be found in the writing of Dante, Brown ing, Tolstoi or Ibsen. . The nineteenth century furnishes a name for several clubs, the new century supplies others. while a society organized In the present year Chicago again boldly reaches out to grasp the future and appropriates for its own the twentieth century. The origi nal Sorosis of New York has several namesakes, and even in far away India there is found to be a Bombay Sorosis club organized in 1889. The aim ot ail these associations, wnetn er of numbers of cultured women with time and wealth at command, or whether composed of a few wage-winners to whern the purchase of a book means sacrifice, seems to be the same to improve ' them selves and others; to keep pace with the march of events, and to possess their free hold of all that is best and most, ennob- A SCHOOL OF MANUAL TRAINING. The free mechanical school for boys from the Boston high and grammar sshools, which Mr. A. L. Murdock has been laboring for years to establish, will be opened September 10. For the use of the school Mr. Murdock furnishes free of all expense three floors of a large building on Huntington .avenue, and, being unable to obtain from the env tne necessary financial support,' he has appealed to the Master- Mechanics' association with good success, as each society of stone-cutters, masons, carpenters, painters, plumbers, etc., will supply him, not only with skilled instructors for the aay ana even- in or schools, but also with tools and stock. ihe evening classes will De tor aauite who wish to avail themselves of such ad vantages, and mechanical drawings will form a park of each course. The classes will be so organized tnat mere win ds nu surplus in any one branch of mechanics, and upon graduation MX. juuraoca tninnn were will be "a sufficient number of graduates to erect anv buildine from foundation to roof without calling on outside help." By another year it is hoped that tne ecnooi may be sufficiently enlarged to offer the same advantages to giria in me stuuy or. suitable trades that are now provided for bova. it Is said tnat tne most practical meuiou of teaching manual training is now in use at St. Paul, Minn.'

As we reached the edge of the village the sidesof the old ramshackle nouses were mngea with sullen-looking hinds, filthy and wrangling children and old dames with short skirts and "mutch" caps, yellow with age and dirt; and all these uncanny folk, uirst eyeing tne old man ana uien myself, indulged in shrugs and derisive smiles that were disquieting indeed. There were two inns, the Kings Arms and the Maxwell Arms, -equally forbidding and vile; and I chose the latter at the old man's recommendation, as it was tne nrst reached. Its proprietor was a veritable "Mee Merriliea" of a woman, and the ground floor, chiefly given over to drunken orgies and reeking with filth, was crowded with ploughmen, herdsmen and tramps in various stages of stupor or elation. All of these seemed to regard myself and my companion in the light of such a hilari ously fortunate arrival, that not until I had paid a reckoning for two score thirsty Scotch gullets could I avoid sundry de monstrations which savored overmuch of hustling and secure the seclusion of a musty, dark and vermin-filled room.

She now Wants admission to the general conference of. the Methodist churoh, and there is fear that if she is ad mitted her admission will be followed at once by agitation for her admission to the Methodist ministry on equal terms with the men, and probably by an attempt to commit the church, as a church, to the woman suffrage propaganda. The editor of the New York Christian Advocate, the chief paper of the church, is much im pressed by the situation so much that he feels moved to speak as follows: Ths Methodist Kpiscopal church gives woman equal privileges with man in the means of grace; equal rights of trial and appeal; affords her equal opportunity for educa tion; encourages her to work by pen and voice for the welfare of the church and humanity, and, having begun in ad vance of the greater part of the Christian world as respects its treatment of women, has kept pace with her progress every where. It numbers among its members female teachers professors, merchauts, physicians, lawyers, pnblio readers, sing ers, and reformers, and allows them to be come Sunday school superintendents, stew ards, class leaders and deaconesses. But it has not clothed them with legislative authority, nor admitted them to the min istry. , The church has now come to the parting of the ways. Behind it is Chris tian history; around it the great organized churches, a unit on these points; before it a dubious experiment. it is indeed a crisis. if Woman can succeed in "going to conference" it is cer tain thatr she will interest if not edify when she gets there. It is also certain that the mere men who are there wont be allowed to talk as much as they have. Woman wouldn't go to conference and sit quietly there." She would be moved to warn and instruct the brethren, and she would do it too. The brethren had better think twice before they admit her, and per haps three times wouldn't be too many.

WITH S1LVBH WINGS. The milkweed pods are ripening 'fast in the September sunshine, and if you want them gather them while you may, else will they unbar their doors and let their pretty silken-winged prisoners go free to float away on the lightest breath of the wind far beyond recapture. When the pods are of a soft gray-green, with tintings of old rose and brown, velvety to the touch and well rounded, they have begun to ripen and may be gathered and brought home. When the sponge-like text ure of the pod has been carefully broken away there is disclosed a beautiful cone with row upon row of over lapping scales, pale green, edirad with white or brown, with cream, ending in a long silk en point of lustrous whiteness. Put these cones in a milk pan and set the pan in a sunny window and every aay the wonder and the beauty of them will grow until at last yon find the pan heaped with a fluffy mass of fly-away filaments; the seeds are ripe and brown and they seem impatient to be up and away, feeling doubtless that they have a mission to perform. It is for you to thwart their aspirations and pro vide for them a sphere of usefulness limit ed but pleasing, that of home decoration, It you have a choice hit of wax work In prre white that you do not wish to dis card at the bidding of fickle fashion, or a tiny Persian statuette, tip the. bell glass that covers It and gently insinuates couple of handf uls of the filaments -under neath. They will settle in a lovely veiling of silvery mist about the flowers, or the goddess, and add a new beauty to the old ornament. Milk weed balls are made by shaking off the seeds, dipping the silky threads in water, to discourage them from flying all about the room then tieing them in small bunches, and fastening them to a stem of wire. This requires delicacy of touch, unlimited patience, and not a little time; if you lack these three requisites, and can buy the balls of the florist at five cents each you may hurt it cheaper to let him tUDDlV von. Another way of using them is to make a bag of the palest gray or cream white tis sue used for veils.

The bottom oi tne bag should nave a row of the lightest silk tassels of the shade of the ribbon.

A Tramp Over tbe Blall Koad From Carly.le to Glasgow "The Blabop of Gretna" Where Joseph Pal.ley Is Borled Ratnahae'kie Houses f Sprlna-neld Xbe Annual X raffle of Gretna and Sprlugncld Surcesaors of Paisley. Gretna Green, Scotland, Aug. 1 To the Editor of the Journal and Corwca: I had tramped over the once great mail road from Carlysle to Glasgow, from Ec- clefechan, where Thomas Carlisle was born and lies buried, towards the border to Gretna Green. So far as human eyes could discern, not a soul had housing with in its half dozen ruinous habitations. Not a youtliful or wrinkled face pressed against tiny window-pane as I passed. No dirty children skulked like grouse in and ont of the liloasant hedges. Not even the snarl of a watchful cur contributed to the fart of arrival or conveyed a sense of welcome. I kicked bravely at a few doors without even awakening an echo. Where echo is dead it is silent indeed, I reflected, as I broke into the old kirk-yard. I could not force the door of the kirk itself. Then I prowled about the ivy-covered manse be hind. Here lived. I knew, one of those remnants of a half-dead and altogether breathless ecclesiastic system the estab lished church of Scotland, expiring from a trausfusion of religious blood and life into the vigorous young Free church- parish minister; but evidently he, too, was past awakening. Then I sauntered among the graves. There was at least interest, if not life, here. That extraordinary priest of Hymen, the first "Bishop of Gretna," he who had defied bulls of popes, bully- ings of lord-chancellors, and edicts of kings, fat old brandy-guzzling Joseph Pais ley, lies here, and the path to hjs humble grave-stone is worn deeper than to that of purest life, or of highest title, who is com moner in the same lost mold. His suc cessors as "priests" of the irregular Gret na marriages are buried near; and their head-stones are also shrines - for the curi ous. 1 could not but renect tnat coma au the couples, or the descendants of all the thousands of couples, in England and Scotland, that these three men joined to gether, unite in visiting the graves of those to whom they owed their connubial joys or miseries, what a wonderful pil grimage it would be. Why, the old coach- road would be massed with folk, a score abreast, away back over the Sark and Esk to Carlisle. There would be lords and earls and real bishops, and- even prelates among mem, too; - Loitering outside the wall for a final glimpse'" of the drear and grass-grown place", I at last became conscious of pres ence. Turning, I saw a nose of wondrous proportions with a man of no proportions at au Denma it. xne man stood motion less, but the nose seemed possessed of life. It gently swayed pendulum-like in the Au gust breeze, as if in compensation of all else dead and still at Gretna. The man was old and humped, and was clad in that beautiful curtailed garb of the British postman, with the skirts at the waist, the waist at tne snouiaers and the cuffs at the elbows, with a straight-visored cap like a iruncaiea ounce s cap, ana the whole wrinkling and concentering skyward? as if authority had the British postman eternal ly in grip at the nape of the neck to accel erate the action of his nether extremities. The hands of the old man hovered about his wrists, suggesting chilly weather; and iiis lire greu iitua eyes, Dngnter in their green for the red and rheum of their lash es, seemed peering over and around his mighty nose, as if the intellect behind "Oh. no. mv nood thing of general interest.1 "Oh, aye." Then a long pause with that glitter of calculation flashing diaboli cally from those specks of green eyes; and suddenly, while his shriveled old hands rubbed nervously " together: "Its no wan tin' the record, ye're seekin'f" i subsequently well understood the old wretch's meaning. At that moment I did not. cut it flashed over me that he was an old man; a postman; had probably -always lived at Springfield and Gretna; might be very serviceable in assisting in my investigation!: and I asked nun plain ly if he could be; to which, after a long time regarding me with a look of incredu lity, suspicious cunning and positively piteous greed, he solemnly asserted that he was the only man living that could give any one of an inquiring turn of mind complete information upon the subject of Gretna marriages; which he would do if I would join hint on the morrow at his own house, the third from the Sark bridge it there's suler abinf it!" he concluded almost savagely. I assured him there was reasonable amount "of silver behind" whatever he could do for me, whereupon the old wretch went his way. Just one hundred years ago this village of bpnngneld was bnut by bir Wuham Al ax well. The necessity for the place had its origin in the marrimre-trade of Gretna, which became so popular under its origi nator, Joseph Paisley, that ilaxwell a own residence at the old village was trans formed into an inn, and this in a little time was so overcrowded that other commodations had to be provided. The Kings Arms across the way from the Max well s Arms, In which 1 am writing, by 1800 had become the most famous posting establishment in the two kingdoms. From Paisley s marriage of the Cumberland, England, couple in 1771, as chronicled in my last article, to the time of his death, in IS14, it is computed that the tramc brought annually to Gretna and Spring field ten thousand pounds in fees, expenses of those who pursued Runaway English couples, outlay of barristers who visited the places to establish proof ot marriage. other barristers who came for clients who hoped to find lack of proof, the curious who were attracted by the extraordinary character of the place, and from Uie gene ral recklessness and extravagance on every hand where marriage fees from runaway English common folk, gentry and nobility ranged irom live to one hundred iraineas. as they did. with any amount of the "yel low stuff" for the hordes of "witnesses," handy-men and satraps who lived perma nently at the inns, hlled the rude cottages. or swarmed like harpies about the then busy stable-yards. The present owner of the estate on whn-li cipnngheld stands Is Sir John Maxwell, the third Sir John, of the descendants of Sir William Maxwell. He lived in Loudon, renting the estatetde niesne at-Springkell, some seven miles dis tant, to Lord Antrim, now here for his fourth year, as a shooting-box for grouse- ahooting and a summer resilience, at two thousand pounds per year. The wretched habitations of the now woebegone village. originally parceled oat on ninetv-niue-year leases which are just now expiring, at the present tune are baaed at an average annual rental of but five pounds per year. and house a most miserable population. So ranch for the village, whose- eastern end is but a few rods from ths boundary line between England and Scotland, at the old stone bridge across the Sark, where the olden Gretna marriages were consum mated, many times in less than thirty onda, and indeed where thev were often performed at the bridge-end itself, with old Paisley runuiug alongside the thunder ing conch with Its learning Horses, so close bad been pursuit.

For some little time be fore his death Ms physical jovs and afflic tions compelled him to delegate his offices to other and younger hands. The fortu nate man was one David Laing, a canny Ulster Irishman, and a pack-peddler, who had married Paisley's granddaughter. No one disputed the legitimacy of the succes sion, as David Uuug had both a hard hat and character; and though rivals occa sionally intercepted a trine of the trathc. he controlled it so effectually and gave it such eclat that on bis death in !"- hav ing caught a fatal cold on his visit to Lan caster, England, to give evidence at the trial of Lord Wakefield, who was indicted, convicted and punished by two years im prisonment tor the abduction ot nis be trothed, their marriage having been cele brated at Gretna his memory was thus perpetuated By Thomas Hood: roraa, was ths old man's wife: deaf for thirty-eight years, her voice faded to a pa thetic falsetto gurgle, and her face and thin old form suggesting some ghostly white field flower trembling in the wind whipped autumn of its liffl. The old man was fiercely grave and dignified. The old woman was all feeble smiles, swaying sa laams, soft and piteous: cackling. For four hours' time I was busied in examina tion of the musty records of this marital curiosity shop, first the oaken box was opened. This contained the original rec ords, now scarcely more than a mass of shreds, but still legible, and. on innumera ble occasions, worth in Scottish and Eng lish courts far more than their weight in gold. Then the transcript record-books were examined. These place at a glance in chronological order every marriage re corded as performed by Paisley and the three Laings down to the present time. The first marriage was that of John Edgar with Jean Scott in 1771. Ths last one, celebrated in this very cottage by William Laing, slay 2V, iMNf, was of Thomas Beat tie, parish of Bewcastle, county Cumber land, England, with Mary McGregor, par- tab. of Gretna, Immtties-shrre bcouaud, involving certification of the Scottish twenty-one-day residence. The records comprise nearly eight thousand marriages; including snch noted members of the r-ng-lish aristocracy and nobility as Thomas, Lord Erskine, with Sarah Buck; Edward Conroy with Lady Alicia Parsons, daugh ter of the Earl of Ross; John George Lampton, grandfather of the present Lord Durham, with Miss ChoUnundley; Edward Gibbon, Lord Wakeheld, with Ellen Tur ner, for which Lord nakeheld suffered two years' imprisonment; and Lord George William Coventry with Mary Beanclaira. Of these, Joseph Paisley, in forty-three years' time, performed about twenty-three hundred; David Laing, during the next thirteen years, fifteen hundred; Simon Laing, between 1837 and 1871, about thirty-one hundred; and William Laing, postman, during the past nineteen years, between six and seven hundred. It was a strange and weird experience this, at the cottage of William Laing, postman and "meenester, at Uretna Ureen. iiut igiva fair warning to all who come after me that they will not only find the genuine records attesting Uretna s fame, but that, while enjoying the studies of one of the most extraordinary characters in Scotland, they wiu also experience at departure, from tne rapacious and almost fiendish levy of "sil ler ahint it," illustration of the apotheosis of drunken thrift, savage ignorance and aggressive avarice, such ss the pen of the greatest master of delineation in fiction and fact has never yet been wholly able to depict.
