Some interesting del ails are given of llie construction of the water works of J)euvcr, Colorado, a notable innovation roiisistiiig in the laying of sixteen miles of thirty-iueli wooden conduit, also a considerable length of fori y-f our incli fiipc. The timber used for this purpose Is California redwood, and the thirty Inch conduit is adapted to stand under e head ot 185 feet. In this work, the tnains were composed of staves, dressed very smooth to cylindrical sides and radial edges, being held to the cylindri cal form by mild steel bunds placed al a distance apart, depending upon the head, but never exceedidg seventeen inches. The pores of the wood arc mjed with the, water under pressure so that it cozes through to a slight extent, thus Insuring permanent preservation, and the interior finish is so smooth that the most advantageous conditions of ilow are ecured. An old man in Cambridge, Massachu setts, who supplies the Boston hotels With frogs, gives a quaint account of bow he contrives to make a living out Df tho business, lie has. been engaged In it for fifty years, and has arranged In his cellar a frog-preserve. It consists f a trough about three feet deep and the same width, running the length of )he cellar. Along the edges stones have Wn set between which the grass jprings up, and here the frogs disport fcemselves when they emerge from the frater which flows through the trough. Sometimes the old man has as many as ,000 frogs in his cellar waiting for the market. A few years.ago he could make $10 a day at his peculiar in flustry, but the "amateur froggers," as he calls them, have cut down his profits materially. His field of operations is in the townships of Belmont, Waltham, Ixingtou and Woburn, in the marshes f which he takes the frogs with a jcoop-net, unless they are wanted for taraediate consumption, when ho shoots Ihem Tvith a Flobert rifle. He guards jealously the secret of the food which Jie gives the boarders in his cellar to keep them plump and tender. "It cost toe a good many frogs to find it out," he eayB, "and I'm not going to give it way in a hurry." The old man, be lides supplying the hotels, sells frogs to leientifio men, shipping them even to England and Germany. .

The declaration of its usual dividend by the New York Cent nil and Hudson Hiver ltailroad company has made al most ns great a stir as the failure of thn New York, New Haven and Hartford Hailroud company to declare, its usual dividend, mid the action of tho former company is, in a certain sense, quite as disappointing as the net ion of the latter company. The latter company disap pointed its stockholders who were lirmly possessed of the idea Ihat thero could never be any diminution of their profits. The former company perhaps pleased some of its stockholders, but it disap pointed all who do not think it is safe or wise to pay dividends that have not been earned. According to its re port it has made only $3,978,000 the past year which is available for divi dends, while distributing some $4,500, 000 to stockholders. It is not probable that this action would have been taken had it not been for the assurances given to subscribers for the new stock. It has given rise to many disquieting ru mors, one of them being tlmt that member of the Vandcibilt family who is called the shrewdest has sold all his slock. If he has, and if he has sold at prices that have been prevailing be has obtained for his stock all that a stock whose dividend is not earned seems to be worth. It is much safer to reduce divi dends to correspond with earnings than to pn'y unearned ones. XOJSIS .1.171 EXl'LOMIIXS. II has oft un been noticed that certain noises will cnusc explosions. For in stance, a piano which is persistently thumped Vill cause explosions of wrath and profanity throughout all the terri tory pierced and covered by the sound. A pious melodeon long and piously played will do thesamc thing. A couple of cats engaged in murdering the sleep of a neighborhood by ccstacies of cat love will cause explosions which resem ble the explosion of a shell loaded with old boots, hair brushes, etc., etc. And a baby which can cry continu ously from ' 1 a. m. to 4 a. m will cause an explosion on the part of the man who has to walk around the house with him that will shatter domes- tie peace and make deep dents in mar riage. . These and similar things have long been known and noticed of all men, and it has not been thought that they need ed a soientiflo explanation. But it is interesting to know that noise and ex plosions have a scientific connection. Recent experiments show that they have. It was found of a certain sample of dry fulminate of mercury that the lowest temperature at which it would ex plode was 343 degrees Fahrenheit, and portions exposed to heat of 335 degrees for some time, allowed to cool, and again heated to that degree (these alter ations being several times repeated), re mained without change. Yet particles of the same fulminate placed us before upon an iron plate, but at a tempera ture of from 310 degrees to 320 degrees only, would generally explode sharply when certain notes were sounded near, upon a violin string .or a cornet. With the human voice it was much more diffi cult to obtain an effect of this kind, but occasionally Btich an experiment would succeed. Similar results were noticed with most of the nitro-compounds, the blasting gelatines included, while chlo ride and iodide of nitrogen were fre quently so explodable at the ordinary temperatunel Great is science. Perhaps by and by, when the conneclion between noise and explosions is more ' fully understood, there will be less noise. There isn't so much bacteria as back talk in a telephone transmitter.

An Entertaining Traveler Tells of Whttt He gees n the Old City. . Prague, June, 1894, To the Editor of the JOURNAL and Codbier i Since" writing my last letter ! have made a. trip to this most interesting and very fascinating city, which more than any other European city possess es a sort of "sul generis" charm pecu liar to itself In respeot to quaintness and beauty. - v; i t We left Presden as early as 7 o'clock in the morning in the quick express train for Vienna, which passes through this city, nHh ride was very delight rul as we passed through "Union Swltserlnnd." The morning sir M cool and fresh and not a cloud In the sky, and as our ear was arranged on one side as an observation car we had fine view of the "baste!" and "Lillian stein," with "Konlgsteln Inthe distance. The summits of those glorious steins stood out in bold outline against the clenr blue sky end the effeot was grand. Boon afterward we rushed by "Her- nskretchen" with the magnificent 'TreblMhthor standing far away like the old Tllsn. and leaving "Hsxon Switzerland" behind as we shortly ar rived at "Hodenbach," a very beautiful ly situated city of 3,000 Inhabitants, considered by many the pleasantrst point In tho Elbe valley. There Is a (Ine chateau here of Count Thun, the garden, library and armory, of which are dally thrown open to the public. A suspension bridge crosses the Elbe at this point to Tetschen. This is Austri an territory where we now are, and of course our trunks and baggage must be ojicned and Investigated by the cus toms ojilelnlB, which Is a perfect nuis ance, but as we have no cognac, cigars or playing cards stowed away we ex perienced no trouble In that line, Al though we are a long distance from Dresden It seems rather familiar and homelike to see the Dresden steamboats ascending and descending the river. Two hours will suffice for the little village of ltodenbach. and we again left for 1'rnguH. The grade Is steep from Hodenbnch to Prague, and I could not but admire the fine engine which drew us rapidly up the long Incline. The dlnmeter of the driving wheels remind ed me of the great engines on the Boston and Albany railroad, and al though the speed was not more than 38 miles an hour we knew (barring acci dents) Hint we would not be late In ar riving at Prague. There is a satisfac tion In traveling in Germany and Aus tria, for you know you will arrive at a certain point at the schedule time. Af ter passing Ausslg at the Junction of the Kibe and Blela rivers we saw the last of the Dresden steamboats. Ausslg has 18,000 Inhabitants and there are many chemical factories here, one of which employs 1,300 workmen. Large quantities of coal are mined here and sent to all parts ot Bohemia. Here was fought the great battle of the Hussites In H20. . This is the beet root district and we see many magnificent sugar refineries, employing thousands of workmen. In 1837 Europe manufactured 25.000 tons of beet sugar and it was thought the industry would fall through, as the expense of manufacture was so enormous and the survival of the in dustry depended upon bounties which were burdensome to .the taxpayers. - this year (fifty-seven years after commencement of the Industry) the beet crop of all Europe will amount to about 3,000,000 tons. Surely the West Indian planter who manufactures his sugar from cane will be obliged to step down and out. He will be crowded out of existence. :' Leaving AussigMbehind, we enter a very beautiful country, level for many miles and again diversified by rolling plains extending for very many miles in every direction. f A godd many tall cone-like moun-. tains were to be 'seen here and there, everyone of which was crowned with a great tower or possessed an old castle, some of which w?re in ruins. Distant peaks, blue and far away, were disoerp ible beyond the horizon and seemed like tropical islands by reason of their sea blue color. Every town we rush by seems to be of historic interest. Theresienstadt was named after Ma rie Theresa. It is a small village quiet ly at rest under: Us shade" trees, and Marie Theresa no , doubt could have been entirely .happy had she lived within the limits of .this little hamlet. At this point thieiiEger rushes into the fond embrace of the Elbe and Is conveyed far away to the North Sea. At Randwitz, a city of 6,000 Inhabit ants, is a chateau with a fine lib rary and a large collection of armor and many curious articles of the time of Charles Fifth and the thirty years' war. Charles Fourth caused Rienzl, the famous Roman tribune, to be impris oned here in 1350. Just beyond Rand- nitz we pass Melink, famous for its ricth vineyards, and here we see the Elbe and Waldau uniting their waters; between this point and Prague we pas's through many small towns filled with 3moky factories, which produce almoBt everything which goes to furnish and equip a great city,. ' At last we cross a. broad, rich plain, on which, in 1434 the last great b.tttle of the Hussites was fought, and sud denly we entered tho city ot Prague This ancient city is. the capital of Bq hernia, and with its environs .md gar rison has a population Of 260,000 inhabi tants, of these no less than 23,000 are Jews, and at least four-fifths ot the lit' habitants are Tcheques, while the rfr mainlag one-fifth are Germans. The language spoken by Tcheques is Blrt' gular, one resembling in its characters Russian and Polish, and it is a most difficult one to learn. The street cars are marked both in German and in ttye singular characters of the Tcheqtte language, and the signs over the shops are nearly all in this strange language. Some of the names are all consonants. as Vsnrk, etc. Some Have vowels, and I noticed that Taussig was as frequent a name as Smith is in the United States. . v The river Moldau runs through the city, the situation of which is pictur esque, being built upon many small hills and when the sun shines the ftp pearance of the old portion of the cljV is singuiany picturesque; over seven' ty towers rear themselves among beau tiful buildings, and - many roofs ari brightly gilded, giving a remarkably beautiful effect. The churches are magnificent and the bridges are beatyv tltul, . among which .Charles bridge W the principal one, tbis was built M long ago as 1357. More than thirty statues and groups of saints ornament this bridge, and at each end of the bridge Is a massive ' tower, which . In the olden days were forts to protect the city. It was over this bridge the Swedes crossed in 1648, until they came to the great tower- where the Jews and stu dents, assisting the soldiers, repelled the attack, causing the Swedes to re tire. The effect produced by the great cathedral and the palace covering ten acres on the Hdraschln hill over. thS river. Is most charming and gives to Prague the peculiar reputation of the most beautiful and picturesque city (a jsurope. , i,: j The public buildings being built upon commanding hills in 3 various parts pf the 'city, have a most magnificent efteat and it is a real pleasure to see great ed ifices built at the ends of wide avenues, thus causing Prague, like Jerusalem ot old, to be beautiful of situation. The city psiks are prettily laid out, with abundant fountains and winding walks.whlle flowers and flowering trees render the effect very agreeable to the eye. The Baumgnrien In the Hdrasch ln hill Is of great extent, coverlns a large territory of hill and dale, superb ly situated, and has no superior In Eu rope. The handsome equipages of the nobility and gentry are to be seen In this garden, and the ladles who ride and drive In the park, as well ns many you meet with In Prague, are dressed In Vienna fashions, which Is saying a good deal, for Vienna, some, think, leads Paris In elegant fashions. We were Intensely Interested In visit ing the ancient Jewish synagogue, lo cated in the oldest jiart of the city, where the streets are very narrow and Irregularly laid out. This part of tho city Is called the Josephstadt and has literally swarmed with tho sons of Abraham for the last seven hundred years. Many dark deeds have been committed here, and what Incredible amounts of money have changed hands In this place. Here the old Jews were born, here they lived, worshipped the God of Abraham, and here they were burled In their holy ground, a truly sep arate and peoullur people, and will ever remain suoh. The old synagogue was built early in the 13th century. It Is a singular building consisting of one large room filled with old brass candelabra ot very great age and of unique design. There are very many of these and plenty of old lamps, ram's horns, books and tem ple furniture of great age and very valuable. The tabernacle was set up In the rear wall of the synagogue more than' six hundred years since and re mains unchanged to the present day. There is among many curiosities to be seen here, an Immense Hag on a huge pole, and it requires ten strong men to raise it. This was presented to the Jew by the Emperor Ferdinand III, in 1648, as a present on account Of the bravery of the Jews in helping to defend the city against the Swedes In 1648.. To enter'the synagogue one must descend a few steps and again a few steps more, till the floor of the syna gogue is reached, this is three or four feet below the level of the street. This same peculiarity of construction I noticed In the old synagogue In Bar bados, W. I., and Rabbi Wechsler in his interesting paper which he read before the Historical society three years Since, mentioned that the floor of the synagogue was the "depth" to which the psalmist referred when he exclaimed, "Out of the depth' have I cried to Thee! oh, Lord!" The rabbi, an excellent Hebraic scholar, remarked that the deeper down the prayers were uttered In the olden days, the more fervent and efficacious they were con sidered. A few steps from the synagogue is the last resting place of these peculiar people. The sun was shining brightly when we entered this sacred place, and such an array of tombstones I have never beheld, save in the valley of Ichoshopnot at Jerusalem. This cemetery is quite small and filled with: upright: stones very thick and heavy, beautifully carved; in many places .they are so thick together that they are not more, than three Inches apart, and In this holy ground are sloep no less than 12,542 sons of Israel. The first interment was that of Sarah Katz in the year' 1206, the last burial- was in 1784. One of the tombs is that of Habbl Lion the astronomer of Em peror. Rudolph II, he died in 1609, and- on his stone is carved a lion. Rabbi Balto's stone has a great bear, (1605). Two open hands are carved on a tomb, this indicates a descendant of Aaron, while a Vase on another stone shows a descendant of Levi. One beautiful stone has carved on Its face a coat-of-arms, the exact coun terpart of that of the late Earl of Bea- consfield. The oldest stone, that of 12Q6, Is of sand stone six or eight inches thick, and it is very well pre served; many are of marble and it is singular that the Hebrew letters are very distinct. One tomb contains no less than fifteen generations, and the records and details are all kept telling all about the occupants of this singu lar cemetery. Near the Jewish quarter stands the "Rathaus" which was built in 1474, This is a moBt curious place to visit and full of many relics, including one of the most singular clocks in the world- .. In the Council hall is a fine painting by Brozick representing John Huss before the Council of Constance, On one (Of ; the beautifully Inlaid doors I noticed the date 1619, a rare work "of art. In a small prison in. one of the towers King WenceSlaus Fourth was imprisoned in the year 1400, and In the little chapel on the fourth floor are to be seen two. ancient paintings dated 1390 and 139L I Nearby IS the old Teyneklrche built in 1425;. this among other things of great interest' contains the tomb of TyehO ''BraehBi' who died in 1601. On the other Bide of the street and near this chuch is. the "Pulverthurm," or Powder' tower j an enormous structure or gaieway,--c0nstructed in 1476.
