The railroads in Japan are partly owned bv the government and partly by private stockholders, hut the rates and rules of the government roads govern the others also. At all the stations are overhead bridges, and crossing the track at grade is pro hibited, as in England. The stations are roomy ami neat, the platforms ample, anil at both ends of the plat form the name of the station is con spicuously posted. The passenger shows his ticket on going through the gate to his train, and surrenders it at the gate on leaving. No conductoren ters the cars.

KEEPING A PRIVATE NOTE BOOK. Employe* of Cfvfl Engineer* Arc Not Allowed ThW I'rlvllege. "He was the best surveyor and draughtsman in my employ," said a well-known civil engineer of this city a few days ago, ruferring to a man whom he had just discharged. "I dis covered a short time ago that he was keeping a private note book, and, after notifying him that he must stop it, and again learning that he was con tinuing the practice, I was obliged to discharge him." 1 asked the gentleman to explain what he meant by "keeping a private note book." ( "A surveyor," said he, "in doing a piece of work makes minutes as he goes along of the lines he runs, of the vari ous points marking the bounds of the lands he is surveying, and all such data as is not only necessary for the drawing of his plans, but also incident ally that which may aid him in the case of any other survey being mada later on. "This data, you see, really consti tutes a sort of capital or stock in trade, for if the party owning the land ever wishes another survey of it for any purpose he will naturally apply to that same surveyor, who. having these old memoranda, can do the work easier and more cheaply than any other sur veyor. Oftentimes, after many years have elapsed and old landmarks have passed away, those minutes become very valuable. "Consequently a civil engineer al ways wishes to keep these in his own hands, and men in his employ are not allowed to make copies of minutes of surveys which they make while in his employ. Otherwise, an old employe, in leaving and setting up in business for himself, could carry away a large slice of his employer's business. "This is the reason why I have dis charged my best employe upon finding that he was persisting in the practice." TOMB OF CONFUCIUS.' Beached by an Avenue Lined with Bto Be Flgnree or Animal* and Myth*. The city of Chufu-hsien, the Mecca of the believers of Confucianism, is in the province of Shangtung, one of the most populous districts of the orient. Here Confucius was born and here his sacred bones lie buried. The tomb, which is located in one of the largest cemeteries in the province, about three miles out from the city above mentioned, is described by the St. Louis Republic as one of the most im posing in the whole empire. The grave itself is surmounted by an earth mound about twelve feet in height, the whole surrounded by a cluster of gnarled oaks and stately cypress trees. He fore the mound is a tablet about six feet broad and twenty feet high, upon which is inscribed the names and deeds of the great founder of Confucianism, a religion adhered to by over four hun dred million human beings. The bur den of this inscription, according to reliable translation, is "Perfect One," "Absolutely Pure," "Perfect Sage," 'First Teacher," "Great Philosopher," ete. The avenue which leads up to the philosopher's tomb is even more in teresting than the actual place of burial itself. On each side of this avenue are rows of huge animals cut in stone—lions, tigers, elephants and horses, beside numerous mythical creatures, such as animals half dog and half frog, beasts with four legs and twice avmany wings, besides a mul titude of unnamable monsters that never lived on the earth, in the water or in the air. Taken altogether the burial place of Confucius is one of the chief snots of interest in the orient. THE TERM "YANKEE." Various Theories Which Here Been Ad. vanced as to Its Origin. The theories which have been ad vanced as to the origin of the name Yankees are numerous. According to Thierny, it was a corruption of Jakin, a diminutive of John, which was a nickname given by the Dutch colo nists of New York to their neighbors in the Connecticut settlements. In a history of the American wax written by Dr. William Gordon and published in 1789 was another theory. Dr. Gordon said that it was a cant word in Cambridge, Mass., as early as 1713, used to denote especial excellence —as a Yankee good horse, Yankee good cider, etc. lie supposed that it was originally a byword in the college, and being taken by the students into parts of the country gradually obtained general currency in New England, ana at length came to be taken up in other parts of the country and applied to New Englanders as a term of slight re proach. Auburv, an English writer, says that it is derived from a Cherokee word— eankee—which signifies coward and slave. This epithet was bestowed upon the inhabitants of New England by the Virginians for not assisting them in a war with the Cherokees. The most probable theory, however, is that advanced by Mr. lieckewelder—that the Indiars in endeavoring to pro nounce the word English, or Anglais, made it Yengees or Yangees and thii originated the term. Water 1.,-vel of Two Oceans, When the I'anama canal was first 1 proposed, there was a great cry about the dangers courted in opening, up such a "ditch," some extremists de claring that the "lives of millions ol human beings were at stake." This j general alarm was caused by the argu- i men: that the waters on the Pacific -•.ile of tie' isthmus were hundreds of feet hi_'ht r than were those on the At lant ie-id. . ami that the great rush of ua'.ri •i v. ii up t ii- •I: ffireiu-e i n the lev, 1 of the atjs would drown all l-mthcin Ameriea and most o! Mexico and Yucatan. Would-be en gine. r- and sen-ati.uia! editors passed their . pinions or wrote editorials on the subject. It now transpires, as a result of actual survey, that the Atlan tic and not tiie Pacific, is the higher of the tu.i alls, and that in place of the difference being hundreds of feet, as had In en affirmed, the surface of the water on the east side of the isth mus i- exactly m\ and one-half feet higher than it i-. on the western bide. DESTRUCTIVE EARTHQUAKES. buiiie of the Appalling boulters That llsve \Ulteil Japan. Earthquakes are of so frequent oc currence in Japan that they are looked upon as a matter of course, and unless they are accompanied with a serious loss of life and destruction of property, tiie outside world hears little of them. Some of the earliest Japanese tradi tions. says Harper's Weekly, are of ex tremely destructive earthquakes, and many fanciful tales are told of those which happened previous to tin* times of trustworthy historical records. Hut there are many authentic records ol earthquakes which destroyed whole cities. The most serious of these dis turbances in recent times was that ol ls'gi, when, in Yedo, which was the center of the quake, 14.J41 dwelling houses and 1,64'J fireproof storehouses were overturned. In the last days of the past October there was a very serf- j ous earthquake about Oifu and Nagoya. j and there was great loss of life and property. There were slight earth- j quakes on Sunday, October -sth, j and these continued with inereas-1 iug severity until the morning of the following Friday. During the last twe days of the quake, distinct shocks were felt and recorded. At (lifu the houses tumbled down and caught fire, and those people nut caught in the ruins lied to the country and the hills: but in nearly every house it is reported that one or more unfortunate victim was caught. How great the loss of life has been has not yet been reported, but enough is *» cwn to place the loss at several thousands. When the firs! shock was felt at tiifu the up and down trains on the Takaido railway were just meeting. The shock was accom panied by a rumbling sound, and the people on the train thought that there had been a collision. On looking outof the windows, however, they saw the station in ruins, and the water in s neighboring pond dashing violently from side to side. As the shocks con tinued, cracks in the earth were ob served two or three feet wide, opening and closing. The shipping in the vari ous hi bors was very much injured, anc one ship which recently arrived at San Francisco reported that when seventy miles at sea a violent shock was felt, the sea was lashed into a foam, the waves broke over the decks, and th« maintopmast and crosstrees were lost These disturbances at sea have beet very common in previous earthquakes, and several limes great ships in Japa* nese ports have had great difficulty it weathering such unaccustomed condi tions. ANIMALS LOVE THE WEED. A liar, and Colt That Will Chew All tbi Tobacco They Can Get. The claim set forth from time im memorial by tobacco haters, that nr animal would touch the weed, thai even the hog felt above it, seems des lined to receive a serious setback. Eu gene Russell, a farmer living on the Post Bay road near Lake Ontario, it the owner of a mare and colt that art extremely fond of tobacco. The marc formed the habit long before the birtl of the colt, and in the case of the young ster the appetite seems to have been in herited. Three years ago Mr. ltussel decided that he would cure the mart of her labit, and to do so he gave hei two pounds of fine cut which she de voured with relish. This not fazing her a bit he tried leaf tobacco, of whicl he is a producer in a small way. Aftei stowing away a quantity of this sh< showed symptoms of distress. Shf was dizzy, and wanted to lie down ant think over her sins, about as a smal boy might have wanted to do undei similar circumstances. This settlec her, as far as the plain leaf was con cerned. She has never tasted it since though fine cut touches the spot th< same as ever it did. This was not long previous to thf birth of the colt, and the little fellov exhibited almost from the first the "hankering" for a chew. It was be stowed while he was yet at nurse, ant from that day to this both animals wil follow any stranger all over the lo' who has the smell of tobacco about hit clothes. The colt, strange to say, was not affected by the mother's aversior to natural leaf but loves that even bet ter than fine cut and masticates all o: either that is forthcoming. Both ani mals are beauties, and no healthier an to be found in horseflesh in these parts Mr. Russell says he thinks the use o? tobacco has kept them from having in testinal worms, which so often distres.- horses and injufe their digestion. Th< mare is now eleven years old and thi colt is over two. , EARLESS EZEKIEL EADS. A Freak of Nature, Born Earless — HI* Hair %Vas Piebald. Ezekiel Eads, who died in Green* county, N. Y., in thespringof 1885, wai surely a fit subject for a dime museum even though he never descended to tha level, says the Wheeling (W. Va.) Reg ister. Strictly speaking, Eads was ii several respects a most remarkabh creature. He was born without cars not even having apertures where thi ears should have been. His deformity sad as it was, may be said to have beer partly alleviated by the curious con struction of the inner portion of hii head, which enabled him to hear com mon conversation through his mouth. When addressed he would instantlj open his mouth and readily give an swers to interrogations put to him ii an ordinary tone of voice. But Ezekiel'i lack of ears was not his only distinction He had a heavy crop of black hau spotted with white, the spots them selves being in exact shape of humai cars, feet, hands, etc. When he wa quite a small boy it was noticed tha his black hair was interspersed witl oddly shaped spots of white, which however, did not take on their dis tinctive shapes until he had passed hi fifteenth year. W hen Mr. Eads' died he left one son aged forty-five, whose hair was as blacl as coal, not a single gray hair being dis cernible, and another son, thirteei years of age. whose hair was as gTay a that of a man of seventy. Wealth Out of a Poor Farm, There is a man in Alabama who, ac cording to the New Orleans States, takes life very easy for the simple rea son that his farm extends up and down the Louisville & Nashville railroad for a distance of fifty or sixty miles. A great many persons will be disposed to doubt this statement, but nevertheless it is the truth. A short time ago the old Alabama countryman was a victim of impecuniosity because his farm was so poor that the cats would not stay on it, but one day the engineers of the road came along and discovered that his farm was nothing more than a vast deposit of gravel, the very material they desired to use as ballast for the bed of the road. They endeavored tc buy the farm outright, but the old countryman stubbornly refusing to sell the only home he had on earth it was finally arranged to pay him a roy alty on every car load of gravel taken from his land. The royalty has made him rich, and as the supply of gravel is practically inexhaustible he will soon be able to boast that his farm is the largest in the world and extends ill the way from New Orleans te Louis-, ?ille. . • HIS CHOSEN HOME. A Lovelorn Man Wliu llan I lvctl la Jail Years. William Kothwi-il ha« been in the Dedham. Ma-s.. jai! twenty-three years. Rothwcll is sixty-eight years old. and for the many years ho has been in jail he has made and mended the clothing of hundreds of prisoners. Itothwell ramr from a wealthy family in Eng land. and was well educated. When tirst known in Dedham he was arrested hy < ifficer George 11. Morse for drunken ness. While serving sentence at the jail he showed aptness as a tailor, al though never before having had experi ence at the trade. After serving his sentence he was given some money hy the sheriff or official in charge of the jail and he left t iwn. He remained awav hut a few days, however. Upon his return he went to Officer Morse and requested that a charge be made against him either of drunkenness or vagrancy. A charge was made, he pleaded guilty ami he was returned to jail, and the itoston Herald says Kothwell has con tinued this course for the past twenty three year.. Although age bears its mark, his countenance shows refinement. He has become very deaf, lie can he seen by any visitors in the guard-room of the jail seated upon his bench plying his needle through the garments worn hy the prisoners. He lias a brother, a wealthy merchant in New York city, who recently visited him. He has been repeatedly entreated by liis relatives, not only in New York, but in Lan cashire. England, to leave his prison home and live with them, hut he says: "I am contented in the home that I chose twenty-three years ago and I shall not leave it so long as I can re main there, either by hospitality or legal sentences by the courts." ltoth well's life has a romance. When a young man at college he fell in love with a wealthy young English lady. She accepted his attention as a suitor. Money he had in plenty, and being young, spirited, and kind of heart, had many boon companions. He began to drink, and the young woman discarded him. He then left his native land and went to Australia. For several years none of his relatives knew where he was, until twenty-three years ago he sent a letter to his mother in Eng land, telling her where he was. He has the freedom of the jail at Dedham, and the guard-room would he lonesome to the officers without his presence. POISON FOR APACHE ARROWS; Rattlesnake Headt and lied Ante Cooked Into a Jelly Annually. Although the Apaches have had lit tle or 110 use for their poisoned weap ons for years, still they, because of a tribal instinct, each summer season (jo through an annual preparation of their arrow tips as carefully and methodical ly as if an old-time war were near at hand. This work on the arrows, as de scribed by the l'omona Progress, is one piece of labor that the Indian brave will not leave to the squaws. lie gath ers a dozen or more rattlesnake heads and puts them in a spherical earthen vessel. With these he puts half a pint of a species of large red ant that is found in many parts of Arizona. The bite of this ant is more poisonous than that of a bee. Upon these he pours a bit of water and then seals up with moist earth the lid of this vessel. He then digs a hole two feet deep into the ground, in which he builds a roar ing fire and puts in some stones. When the interior of the hole and the stones are red-hot he makes a place in the bottom for the earthen vessel and puts it in. Alxrnt it and upon it he puts the coals and hot stones, and upon the top he builds a fierce fire and keeps it up for twenty-four hours. Then he digs out his vessel, and, standing off with a long pole, he disengages the top and lets the fumes escape. The Indian insists that if the fumes should come in hia face they would kill him. The mass left at the bottom of the vessel is a dark brown paste. To test the efficacy of his concoction a recent traveler saw an Indian with his hunting knife make a cut in his bare leg just below the knee and let the blood run down to his ankle. Then taking a stick he dipped it into the poison aud touched the de scending blood at the ankle. It imme diately began to sizzle, as if it were cooking the blood, and the poison fol lowed the blood right up the leg, siz zling its wav until the Indian scraped the blood off with the knife. The sav age assured the pale face that had he allowed the poison to reach the mouth of the wound he would have been a dead man in twenty minutes. THE GRAND OLD WOMAN. A Kama to Which Mrs Gladstone Is En. titled. ».•» Sir Andrew Clark has often been heard to say that Mrs. (Gladstone is quite as much entitled to the name of the Grand Old Woman as her evergreen husband is to that of the Grand Old Man. On January 13 last, says the London Telegraph, Mrs. Gladstone's eightieth birthday came round and she passed the morning in writing letters to her friends in England, a task which she accomplished without wearing glasses of any kind as aids to her sight. In fact, she has never yet known what it is to need spectacles, and yet her eyes are as bright as those of a young woman. Every morning passed by Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone at Hawarden sees them both at church, nearly three fourths of a mile from the castle. Close to the church is the corrugated iron building in which Mr. Gladstone has already deposited about twenty thousand volumes, the overflow of his own private library at the castle, every volume of which he has placed with his own hand on the shelves of the new library, which he has given to the par ish of HaWarden. Be the weather what it may, the prime minister invariably walks to church and back, taking par ticular pleasure in this matutinal exer cise when snow is falling heavily. Mrs. Gladstone goes thither and back in her little pony carriage, which Bhe drives herself. It is said that Mr. Gladstone does not know what it is to have a head ache or to suffer from cold feet WHITE HORSE OF LAMBOURNE. The Strange Natural Formation Which Mix Be Seen on nn EngUih HUlilde. In Berkshire, England, is situated a hill on the steep sides of which is the figure of a gigantic horse whose di mensions are almost an acre in extent. The head, neck, body and tail of this wonderful figure consist of wide white lines, as does also each of its four legs. The outlines of this mon strous specimen of the genus equinus are formed by cutting trenches in the chalk, of which the hill is mainly com posed, the ditches being from two to three feet deep and about ten feet in width. The chalk of the trenches be ing of a beautiful white and the sur roundings the greenest of the green, makes the figure of the horse plainly discernible, according to the Philadel phia Press, at a distance of about twelve miles. This is the famous "White Horse of I.ambourne." The white horse is known to have been the standard of the Saxons, and some have supposed that this monster emblem atic figure was made by liengist, one of the Saxon kings. Mr. Wise, an an tiquarian who has written much on the white horse of Berkshire, brings in several arguments to prove that this figure was made by or under orders from Alfred during the reign of Ethel red, his brother, and that it is a monu ment to a victory over the Danes in the year 871. Other well-known writers are of the opinion that the celebrated white horse is a natural freak—one of nature's oddest oddities. Ashmead- Burrton thinks that the early tribes noticed that the outlines of the freak resembled a horse to a certain extent and that they worked it into its pres ent shape-, at least that they gave the outlines their present graceful sym metry. However this may be, it has been the custom since time out of mem- ory f'>r the neighboring 1 peasants to assemble on a certain day of each year, usually about midsummer, to clear away tiie weeds from around the white horte and to trim the edges of the trenches s«» as to preserve the color and shape. This task is known all over England as ••scouring' the white horse." A FIERCE BATTLE WITH GEESE. I'enillur Koperleiirr of a Tioga Mush room Hunter. An interesting and rather peculiar battle, says the Philadelphia Times, was witnessed the other morning by a number of persons who were driving along the old summer road, in the Twenty-eighth ward. In a field lying on the north side of the old thorough fare and east of Harris' Bcllevue truck farm an aged Herman was gathering mushrooms, and while peering about the pasture for the toothsome fungi, in a stooping attitude, a flock of "Gander hill" geese strutted under a post and rail fence from a neighboring jsind and marched with their necks extended at full length toward the stranger, who at first paid no attention to their hissing, but continued, every now and again to reaeli down and pick a mushroom. lie soon learned to his sorrow that the geese were considerably above the average flock for bold persistency and determined fight. One old gander acted as leader, anil, after .marshaling his forces into position, led on to the fight by luridly attacking the intruder and striking liira a stunning blow on the nose. Before lie could recover from the effect two of the geese, one from each side, flew at his face, each taking hold of an ear and holding on with bull-dog tenacity, while they battered his head and face with their clipped wings. The sharp points of the cut feather stems brought the blood from his cheeks and forehead at every flap, lie jumped and pranced around like mad. wildly gesticulating and .muttering cries and curses in German. Two others of his feathery assailants flew upon his hack and began peeking him on the head and neck, while the others took hold upon the legs of his trousers and his coat tails and tugged till they fairly dragged him to a swampy part of the field, where one of poor fellow's feet sank in the 'slippery mud and he fell backward in the slime. A man in one of the passing wagons hurried to his assistance, armed with a bean pole snatched from the truck gar dens. 11c arrived just in time to pre vent the enraged geese from killing their victim. Even the blows from the tough cedar bean pole for a time had no effect on the geese, and it was not until five of them, with their necks broken, [lay quiver ing on the grass that the poor old Ger man. his face covered with blood and his clothing with mud, could be deliv ered. lie was led out to the old Summer road, placed in the wagon, and kindly driven to his home in Tioga. The only reason that can Ih> given for the unu sual behavior of the geese is that a rag picker who resembled the German in appearance about a week ago carried away several goslings that belonged to one of the geese. PROGRESS IN RAILWAY BUILDING Advance Made In the United State* and fe t.reat Krltaln. Great liritain and Ireland have now about 20,000 miles of railways, of which a little over one-half are double tracked. Their capital stock and debt amount to the enormous sum of $600,- 000,000. The net earnings were last year a little over 4 per cent, of the capi tal invested and the gross earnings were for last year almost $410,000,000. The railway system of the Knifed Kingdom is practically finished, says the Ihttsburgh Chronicle-Telegraph. Nothing in the way of new railroad construction is going on worth mentioning. A little over 100 miles of new road were added, and a part of this was an exceptional matter. The picture presented in these few figures is that of a finished coun try, fully developed in all parts and re sources. Now turn to the United States. Our mileage now amounts to 171,000 miles, more than eight times as large as that of Great Rritain. The gross earnings last year amounted to over a thousand millions of dollars. During this time there were railroads of a total length of nearly 4,000 miles constructed. In other words, every three or four years we build as many miles of railroad as the total number that suffices the Eng lish, Scotch and Irish people. And the American task is not done by any means. The growth along exist ing lines can well be imagined when it is considered that the English railways serve a population of 39,000,000, or one mile for every 1,000 inhabitants, while our 170,000 miles serve for 60,000,000 of people, or one mile for 360 inhabitants. Married Out of III* Kank. Prince Ernst, of the Saxe-Meiningen, who married Miss Jansen, the daughter of the German historian, a few days ago, is now thirty-five years old. He is the second son of the aged reigning duke of Meiningen and his second wife, a princess of Hohenlohc-Langenburg. The eldest son of the duke is married to Princess Charlotte, of Prussia, eldest sister of the present emperor of Ger many, and known for many years as the "Hohenzollern Venus." Prince Ernst has lived in Munich, and owing to his literary and scicnti6c tastes is extremely popular in the cultivated cir cles of society in the llavarian capital. It was in Munich that he met his wife, a beautiful and clever woman. As the old duke married a few years ago for his third wife a woman without a title, he had little reason to oppose the wise choice of his second son. MOTHERS, and especially nursing mothors, need the strengthening support and help that comes with Dr. Pierce's Fa vorite Prescription. It lessens the pains and burdens of child-bearing, insures healthy, vigorous offspring, and promotes an abundant secretion of nourishment on the part of the mother. It is an invigorating tonio made especially for women, per fectly harmless in any condition of the female system, as it regu lates and promotes all the natural functions and never conflicts with them. The " Prescription" builds up, strengthens, and cures. In all the chronic weaknesses and disorders that afflict women, it is guaranteed to benefit or cure, or the money is refunded. For every case of Catarrh which they cannot cure, the proprietors of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy agree to pay #SOO in cash. You're cured by its mild, soothing, cleansing, and healing properties, or you're paid.

Open Until November Ist. Few Words of Counsel, Especially to Democrats. Olympia, Wash., Sept. 11, 1894. I)kak SIK: It is especially desirable that a full representation be present by delegates at the Democratic County Convention, to be held in Olym pia, on Saturday, Sept. 22d, to elect delegates to the State Conven tion, and if deemed advisable at that time, to select a county ticket. The political conditions seem to be auspicious of success. There is victory for a bold, determined, aggressive campaign for an adminis tration of county affairs which will lighten the burden resting upon the shoulders of the taxpayer. There is a triumph for the principles which recognize equality before the law and special privileges to none. For the lirst time in many years we have a divided enemy to fight. For the first time those who have been giving life and strength to the Republican party have been relegated to back places—not by their own consent or of their own volution—but to serve the selfish purpose of a new element which by " ways that are dark and tricks that are vain" have begun the arduous task of erecting a new party fabric on the ruins of the old. To accomplish this, they are com pelled to show reason why they have deposed their leaders They admit that the administration of public affairs has been, and still is, extravagant and profligate. Their platform charges the blame to the system of public service established by law, which was enacted by Legislatures largely Republican and which have been administered almost exclusively by Republican officers, State and county. What better grounds could we ask for successful warfare? With a divided foe; with our own ranks united; with the im perative necessity for a change; with the profligate record of the enemy to curse and the prestige of Democracy everywhere it has gained a foothold to bless; with hope aroused and hearts exultant, a good, enthusiastic beginning will ensure triumphant results. Mark the prediction! Surely as each Democrat does his full duty in this contest, just so sure will victory be ours in November. To begin aright is one great essential for success. That duty is upon us now. We want a full representation. Come in person. Do not send proxies. Let every precinct l>e up and doing. The crisis in public affairs demands that every citizen do his full duty. By order of the Central Democratic Club. 11. R. IIILL, President.
