THE T H A I IS - W K K KINU.
' The wrecking.of a train on the New
York Central railroad has called forth
prompt and hearty execration of the dread-:
ful crime. The man who will set fire to
a honse in the night and endanger the
lives of those in it is rightly looked upon
with detestation and horror; and the man
who will deliberately wreck a train, heed
less of the lives of those on it, is quite as
detestable. There does not seem to be any
reason to doubt that the train-wrecking
was the work of some of the strikers. Of
course "organized labor" is not to be
blamed for it, but only the villain or vil
lains who, 'disappointed in the result of
the strike, took this dreadful way of -seeking
revenge. But it nevertheless indicates
what is always present to a greater or less
degree in strikes, and especially in strikes
which are not really justifiable. The
strike on the New York Central, as qhown
by Powderly's letters, was a foolish and
Ill-considered one. Its leaders were
not honest with the railroad officers
even if they were with the men whom
they led. There was no sumcient cause
of the strike, but it came, and ever since
there have been reports of assaults upon
"scabs," rows with the Pinkerton watch
men, loud and foolish talk, bitter accusa
tions and threatening. And then a crime
which has startled the civilized world.
If the villains are caught, as everybody
i hopes they will be, no punishment will be
to severe for them. Meanwhile, would it
not be a good idea for the soberer and
more level-headed men in labor organiza
tions to devote a little thought to what
conspiracy and recklessness are sure to
lead. It is not always safe to encourage
the striking spirit in men. Some of the
reckless ones are apt to strike to hard.
BUSINESS VS. POLITICS.
Ex-President Andrew S. White of Cor
nell has again called attention to a matter
which has not received enough attention.
This is the divorce of purely municipal
affairs from general politics. We have
been repeating, he says, the old blunder of
the middle-age Italian republics in treat
ing the city as a political body, instead ot
a business corporation. He contends that
the city, as a city, has properly nothing to
do with general political interests and is
sues, and that national party names have
no riirhtf ul place in the administration of
municipal affairs. Expanding his thought,
he says: The questions in a city are not
political questions. They have reference
to the laying out of streets, the
erection of buildings, sanitary arrange
ments including sewerage, water, supply,
gas supply, electrical supply, provisions
for the public health in parks, boulevards,
libraries, museums, and finally in control
of the franchises and the like. The work
of a city being the creation and control of
the city, it should logically be managed
as a piece of property, by those who have
created it, who have a title to it, or real,
substantial part in it, and who can there
fore feel strongly their duty to it. Under
our theory, that a city is a political body,
a crowd of illiterate men, freshly raked in
from Bohemian mines, or Italian robber
nests, or Irish peat bogs, may exercise
vital control. How such men govern
cities we know too well- as a rule they
are not alive to their own most direct in
.This is very much to ihe point. Of
course, there ought to be no politics in the
inaking of sewers, the paving of streets,
etc., eto. A few good business men,
properly paid for the services, could do
the work of a oity far better and econo
mically than the ward politicians do.

The, beef raisers of the Southwest
going to make the experiment of shipping
their product to England by way of .- New
Orleans, instead of sending it overland to
Chicago, New York J. and Roston. A
dressed beef company at Fort Worth,
Texas, has arranged with an ice company
at New Orleans and a trading association
j in London for the refrigeration' and ship
ment in large steamships to England, of
600 tons of dressed beef semi-monthly.
The saving of freight to New Orleans, in
comparison with the overland route of
2,300 miles, will be $12 per ton. . .
Free trade doesn't seem to have been a
eood thins for asrioultttre in England, In
that oonntry,aooording to Sir James Caird,
an eminent authority, the purchasing
ability of the farmer has been Impaired by
unrestricted foreign competition to the ex
tent of $200,000,000 a year, and the same
cause has driven more than 600,000 farm
laborers into the towns, to compete with
the half employed labor already there.
It has forced out of cultivation more than
1,700,000 acres of arable land, and in the
county of Kent, the very garden of the
realm, there are more vacant holdings than
have been known for a century.
The fraudulent practice of manufactur
ing mineral waters sold as natural mineral
waters has been for some time essnplained
of by medical men. Now that Seine water
has in many districts replaced spring wa
ter, mineral waters are more largely used
than before, and their falsification, which
is caried out on a large scale, is a matter
of .public importance. Specimens of dif
ferent mineral waters in all parts of Paris
have been examined at the municipal lab
oratory, and it has (Seen discovered that
the same water is used for twenty-four
different preparations. In Germany and
Austria this trade is carried on extensive
ly, but not fraudulently; manufactured
mineral waters are sold as such, and at a
lower price than the natural waters. It is
estimated that half of the mineral waters
drunk in Paris are manufactured with
The planting of eucalyptus trees for the
purpose of drawing the soil in malaria
districts has met with some success. The
Trefontane convent at Borne had become
positively uninhabitable, owing to the
malaria which attacked in many instances
with fatal results its inmates. Senator
Torrelli presented a bill proposing that the
estate annexed to the convent should be
planted with eucalyptus as an experiment
against malaria. The bill was passed and
the TrappiBt monks planted thousand of
eucalyptus plants of all species on the es
tate. But still the malaria raged, and sev
eral monks suffered severely. It was,
however, remarked that it was only the
monks who had their cells looking on the
central' cloiater who fell victims to the
malaria. This suggested the idea of
planting four eucalyptus trees at the four
corners of the cloister. The plants, shel
tered from the winds, soon grew to a great
height. The immediate result was the
oomplefe draining of the soil in the cloister
and the disappearance of malaria fever
from the convent.
Some kings have as much sense as ordi
nary men. King Humbert s ' hair nas De
come snow white, much to the distress of
Queen Marguerite, who : is most anxious
that her husband should follow the exam
ple of his father and the fashion common
among elderly Piedmontese officers, and
dye his hair. Her pleadings were, how
ever, of no avail. Humbert's is an honest
nature, that does not love these subter
fuges. Seeing petition was in vain, the
queen had recourse to stratagem. She
caused a quantity, of fine hair dye to be
sent from Paris and put into the king's
dressing-room, together with directions
for its use, making, however, no allusion
to the subject. The king, too, said noth
ing, thongh he could not fail to see the
pigments.. Now the queen has a large
white poodle of which she is very fond.
What was her horror, a few days later, to
see her net come running into her room
with his snowy locks dyed the very deep
est black hue. King Humbert had ex
pended the dyes in changing the color of
the poodle's hair. From that day forth the
subject of hair-dyeing was dropped be
tween the royal couple.
The London- Electrician calls attention
to some curious coincidences between the
names of inventors- and mechanical appli
ances which have given rise to absurd
mistakes. It was commonly supposed
years ago that the Brush machine was so
called on account of some special kind of
brushes, and that the Lever aro lamp de
rived its name from two peculiar levers in
its mechanism. "The Ball dynamo has no

DBONKKNNKS9 A DISEASE.
An English Doctor Say So. and
Would Establish Hospitals to Care
Why do some men and women become
drunkards while the majority of their
compeers, though also non-abstainers, do
nott asks Dr. Norman Kerr in Short Cuts.
No one starts with the design of gradua
ting in drunkenness, but minority fail
in their efforts at moderation. Many of
the failures were conspicuous for their
talents, their accomplishments, their ener
gy, their unselfishness an the nobility of
their aspirations. In their non-alcoholic
intervals not a few inebriates are men and
women of refinement and culture, temper
ance advocates and Christian workers.
The only possibly philosophical and
scientific reply is that some individuals
have, from whatever conditions, either a
tsudency to inebriate excess, or a defec
tive power of control and resistance. En
vironment, snoh as temptations arising
out of social custom or a profusion of
p) ires where liquor can be obtained, also
contributes to the development of the
drunken manifestations. A bout of in
toxication is no nio.-e the disease of ine
briety than is au act of violeuce the dis
ease of insan'ty. I have ventured to de
fine inebriety as a disease of the nervous
system, allied to infinity, characterized
by a very strong impulse to, or crave for,
intoxication. It is not a dispo (thirst)
Many inebriates are never thirsty unless
their "coppers are hot" after a debauch,
and others hate the liquor, which they
cannot abstain from. Inebriety is really a
"tipsy mania," or, as I have proposed to
designate it, a torpor narco-mania a
madness for intoxication by alcohol or opi
um, or any other intoxicant. This malady
may be constant, periodical or accidental
In the accidental form there is no symp
tom of confirmed disease. The individual
never transgresses, except on some extra
ordinary occasion, such as a wedding or
funeral, or a parliamentary election.
In the excitement and joviality of the
moment his spirits are too absorbed and
buoyant to allow him to think of how
much he . has taken; and, without the
slightest idea of anything of the kind, he
simply glides, unknowingly and quite by
aooident, into excess, manifest to others at
the time, but not discernible by himself
till next morning. ' "Once bit, twice shy,"
and very often lie is never caught a second
time. The periodical inebriate, though
between whiles as sober as a judge, is the
subject of morbid physical disorder,
which may occur either at stated or irreg
Inebriety is a disease. Let us treat it as
we would any other disesse. Inebriates
are laboring under this disease. Let us
treat them as sick persons. Let us estab
lish hospitals for the treatment of the
poorest victims of this dire and- fatal dis

Some Enelltih mesalliances.
Max O'Ri'U hi the Washington Star.
What a relief it must be to an aristo
cratic father of a young Verisopht when
that scion of his house is safely married
to a suitable wife. The question, "What
shall we do with our boys!" is a serious
one with some parents, even when those
boys are over twenty-one, and not re
quired to earn their own living. The
English marriage law being what it is, is it
much wonder that now and then a young
man with his pockets full of money, and
leading an idle life, should treat papa to
such a surprise as the one Lord Clancarty
had about a year ago! When I first came
to England it struck me as very funny that
tril l might co ont to choose the hh tor
the family dinner, and on her way home
pass to the registry office and get married
to any boy who happened to have caught
her fancy, provided he was of the age re
quired by law. No papers, no consent of
parents required; nothing but a couple of
witnesses, iue vuuio divorce case nas
brought home to me afresh the fact that
red tape is an excellent thing in modera
tion. It cannot be much of a treat for a
British earl to wake one morning to find
oimse'f the father-in-law of a lady whose
photograph in the airy costume of a music
hall star is on v.ew in London show win

sufficiently common to disprove the Eng
lish notion that Frenchmen marry for
money; in fact they ate much more com
mon than in EnslAnd. . In the bourgeois
class you may constantly see men marry

at the birth of the rash son's first baby, if
not before. But in the aristocracy one
never hears of a glaring mesalliance like
Lord Dunlo's. Our aristocracy is an old
one and a proud one. With the exception
of a few families, snch as the Howards,
the English aristocracy is a mushroom
growth compared with the French one.
Robbed of their power they cling all the

Backing up the mothers of authority,
which, I believe, would in nine cases out
of ten be all sufficient, there comes the
law which compels a man, even after he is
of ace. to ask his parents consent to his
contemplated marriage. If they refuse,
he must three times, at stated intervals.

to marry. If Lord Clancarty had only
had one such notice - he might have sent
his son to Australia before instead of af

A Spider and Fish Story.
The physical powers of the lycosidre
the popular, ground, or wolf spiders are
well illustrated by an instance recorded in
the proceedings of the Academy of Natu
ral Sciences of Philadelphia, says the Pop
ular Science Monthly. . The result, a
ported, was achieved by pure strength and
activity, without any of the mechanical
advantages of a snare. Mr. Spring, while
walking with a friend in a swampy wood,
which was pierced by a dike three feet
wide, was attracted by the extraordinary
movements of a huge black spider in v the
middle of a ditch. Closer examination
showed that the creature had caught a fish
She had fastened upon it with a deadly
grin lust on the forward side of the dorsal
fin. and the poor fish wasawimming round
and round slowly, or twisting its body as
if in pain. The head of its black enemy
was sometimes almost pulled under the
water, but the strength of the fish would
not permit an - entire submersion. It
moved, its fins as if exhausted, and often
rested. Finally it swam under, a floating
leaf near the shore and made a vain effort
to dislodge the spider by scraping .against
the under side of the leaf.
Tom, tw hrnrl now cloaelv approached
the bank. Suddenly the long black legs
of the spider emerged from the water, and
the hinder ones reached out and fastened
upon the Irregularities of the sides of the
ditch. The spider commenced ragging at
his prize in order the land it. The cUsr
ver ran to the nearest house for a w .de
mouthed bottle, leaving his friend to
watch the struggle. During an interval of
six or eight minutes' absence the spider
had drawn the fish entirely out of the
water; then both creatures had fallen in
agaln,Uie bank being nearly perpendicu
lar. Then followed a great struggle, asd
ob Mr. Spring's return the fish was al
ready hoisted, head first, more than half
its length out npon the land. It was very
much exhausted, hardly making any move
ment, and was being slowly and steadily
drawn up by the spider, who had evident
ly gained the victory.
STEEL IS THEIR fOOB,'
TheQaeer Little Worms that ale (ha
Hallway Track at II seen.
(From the American Manufacturer.
A worm that feeds on common steel was
first brought into general notice by an arti
cle in the Cologne Oasette in Juno, 1887.
For some time proceeding the publica
tion of the account mentioned the greatest
consternation existed among the engineers
employed on the railway at Hagen by acci
dents, which always oocured at the same
place, indicating that some terrible defect
must exist either in the material or the
construction of the rails.
The government became interested and
sent a eommision to the spot for the pur
pose of maintaining a constant watch at
the spot where the accidents, one of them
attended by loss of life had occurred. It
was not, however, until after six months
had elapsed that the surfaces of the rails
appeared corroded, as if by acid, to the ex
tent of over 100 yards.
The rail was taken an and broken, where
upon it was found to lie literary honey
combed by thin thread-like gray worms.
The worm is said to be two centimeters in
length, and the bigness of a common knit
ting, needle. It is of a light gray eolor.and
on the head it carries two little sacks or
glands filled with a most powerful corro
sive secretion, which is ejected every ton
minutes when the little demon is lying un
disturbed. The liquid, when squirted up
on iron, render that metal softand spongy,
and the color of rust, when it is easily and
greedily devoured by the little insect.

cial report, "iq the assertion that the crea

Heroine Maria Tarhebrlkova.
Maria Tschebrikova, whuee letter to the
Czar has not yet been forgotten, and who
heroine maria tacue
was recently ordered to be taken to Sibe
ria, hsa commonly been described as a
young lady. The heroine, aays tha Lon
don Echo, is fifty-four. Madame Tscha
brikova had not been heard of outride of
Russia before the publication of her fa
mous letter, but she hsa done much. Her
life has been more important than con
spicuous. Twenty-two years ago she pub
lished a book on Russisn history and lite
rature, but before Uie letter in question
she hsd -not published a line which even
the Russian censors would object to. She
was not a revolutionist, nor is she now.
With anarchism, nihilism, "red" politics
of any sort, she neither bad nor has any
sympathy whatever. What has got Maria
Tschebrikova into trouble is not politics,
but her candid, ontspokvn warning-, to the
Czar, her assertion that in "educated and
official society the adoration of the Czar
has dwd out, and that "the government
which rules over one hundred millions is
afraid even of children." This is an allu
sion to the frequent imprisonments of
children of fourteen and fifteen years of
age. The heroines of the French revolu
tion read Plutarch. The unique heroine
of modern Russia derived much of her in
spiration from her study of the characters
of the American revolution. Madame
Tschebrikova knows English literature
and American history thoroughly.
