Yesterday's Washington Herald contained the following Item: "Smith 1). Fry. formerly a Wash? ington newspaper correspondent und an employe of the auditor's division of the Postofflco Department, ami Miss Bleanor M. Hogers, of this city, an employe of the same branch ot the government service, were mar? ried in Baltimore yesterday, only a few of their friends being present at the ceremony. "Mr. Fry? left Washington last year and. for a time, mrtdo ills home at Newport News. Miss Hogers Is well known here, where she had lived some years. After a bridal tour, the conide will go to Mr. Frye's home. Tlie two became acquainted while working in tlie audlt?r'8 department of the postofllce." For about a year Mr. Frye was an inspector of customs in tho iocal ofllce. He left here two months ago for fJluefleid, Wost Virginia, to be? come managing editor of a paper In that city. He held on to his position In the customs service for some time, but It Is understood that he resigned a week or so ago. The Herald ac? count of the wedding makes no men? tion of Hluollold, hut it is supposed here that Mr. Frye is still connected with the newspaper there. Newest Leather. How would you like to wear whale skin shoes? That promises to he the next commercial product, as experi? ments with whale leather are already meeting with some success. This leather resembles kid, Is very thin nnd tough and w. 11 take color readily. Too bad, after all this time, to just discover a use for the poor whale, \>3 sides Its bones and oil! What a sad waste of material there lias been since the whaling business started rolling up fortunes almost a century ago; nnd not only shoes but long gloves, they sny. will soon he made of the whale's skin. Kid and rat will have to look lo their laurels if tho women like if. The Loaded Jinlkisha. In "Paradoxes Of Nature and Sci? ence." by W. Hanipson, M. a. Oxon, Ij. s. a.

The statement, however, is justitiell by the mechanical facts. It is ens'er, oll a level road which is In good eon <litton. to draw die jiurikisha loaded than to draw it empty. It dopends upon the gain obtained by putting a load upon wheels. Ii is far easier to draw three hundred weight In a I ghl truck along a railway platform than to entry one hundred weight on the back, making an extra weight for the legs to support. The jiurikisha man returning with his carriage empty, has to carry his own weight on bis legs. It would pay him well to gci part of Ills WO gill off Ills legs on the, wheels, even if they had to carry In , addition twice as much as they take off his legs. Hut the jinrikishn Is not built so that he can ride it ami pro i pel it at the sumo time, as one does' a bicycle or a railway trolley. The! only way he run transfer part of Iis weight to the wheels, while drawing! (he Jiurikisha along the roads, is j.'y leaning on the shafts.
