The posts are also arranged so as to receive the ends of the service-pipe.4 either With or without expansion joints. The service-pipes are not taken directly from the mains, but from the hollow supports thus allowing them to be attached or die tached from the support instead of passing through the outside wooden pipe to enter the steam pDie, which itoul not he done beause the steam pipe expalnd and contracts, while the wooden pilt' does not.

There are still all sorts of reasons for importing fomre wool, just as there are for im portbg foreign irot, lead, cop per, halt, cotton goods, silks, etc. I Swant foreign coarse goods beeane they are cheaper. Others want special grades of foreign fine wooL But the equality of American wool is such as give our woolen goods the command ot the home markets. With our vast extent of land, great varieties of soil and climate and large developmnents of agricultural and pas toral interests, there is no grade or (tlht'l ot wool we cannot produce, and no g4gl reason why we cannet conm pet'4th foreign wool in price. The war gave a great imoetus to the pro duction of wool and the manufacture of Woolen goods at home,. and it has been firmly held out and increased. A Ohromo with a Drink. Henry A. .ones, brother of senator •Jones, of Nevada, tells the following story on one of his fellow townsmen: WVhile in New York city, during the late cold and snowy weather, making his way with difficulty against the blinding storm, he was accosted by a familiar voice, which, on recognition, proved to be an old acquaintance from the "gold hill." The time, cir cumstances of meeting and well-known hifulous disposition of his new-tfound friend all conspired at the usual invi tation to "take a drink." Seeking the first spacious bar, our friend nomi nated, his exhilaraut as " whisky straight." The shining decanter and glasse were passed d'wn when, pour ing out the fiery fluid, it rose, one, two, three, four fingers high, yes, even full, flush to the top of the tumbler, and the customer seemed to reluctantly stop pouring even at that, evidently regretful that it would hold no more. The barkeeper could hardly believe that a single person would have the face to go so far at emptying a bottle, and until he saw it done had no idea that any man could master such a potion at a single swallow. Without loss of breath, however, our Nevadaite cleared the glass at one bending of the elbow, and without grimace or change of countenance threw dowhn his quarter dollar on the counter. " What is that for ?' asked the bar keeper. ",To pay for my drink, of course," said o:ar friend. "Ob, no; none of thbtt," replied he of the house; " you don't owe us a cent; on the contrary, we always throw in a cjromo with a drink like that." effect of a Sermon on Hell. A New York journal informs us that "a Brooklyn woman, frightened into insanitv hv a sermon on hell, was discovured the other night almost na-. ked, o the l.'athush road, trying to dig up er dead children."
