(se.»res of isolat e«l wells that have been drilled for oil yield gas in large quuiitities. but they are not eonneeted with pipe lines, and the oil is saved but the gas permitted to csr.ipe. Ueeklc-ss extravagance* also prevails in the use <>f gas, liotli in factories and private houses, lias in the Indiana Held is not sold by measure, but it is supplied for factory or domestic pur poses at a fixed price per month. It makes no difference whether much or little is consumed, the .price is the same. It costs no more to continue the fire twenty-four hours in the day than in does one hour. With this state «>f things existing, the consumer has no interest in practicing economy, 1 ires arc allowed to burn continually in unoccupied rooms and unused fur naces. without regard to the value of the fuel consumed. If gas were sold by measure for all purposes consumers especially would practice economy. The statement may seem extravagant, but it is doubtless true, that at least forty per cent, of the gas consumed in the Indiana field, factories, dwellings, etc., is actually wasted. Hut one result can follow thisextrav agauce, and that is a quick exhaustion of the field. A final exhaustion is in evitable under any circumstances, but the profligacy that now prevails is de stroying the field at a twofold ratio. With economy in its use natural gas will bring capital and prosperity to the field for years to come, but the quick exhaustion that is sure to follow the extreme prodigality of the last few years will necessarily result in the abandonment of the "field to a certain extent for manufacturing purposes. (•as is most beneficial when con sumed for domestic purposes. In this way it benefits a much larger propor tion of the population, and there is also more profit to the producer in sell ing it for domestic use. As the volume of the supply gradually decreases it will necessarily be withdrawn from use in the factories and the supply confined exclusively to domestic use. It is well to note that at this time there is a united action on the part of the various companies producing natu ral gas throughout the various fields looking to its preservation and endeav oring to secure rigid economy in its use. If these efforts are successful the period of prosperity now prevailing throughout the ges areas will be ma terially lengthened. nuOJcN MONEY IN ENGL'AKtr. Notched Sticks t'sed Before the Bank of k England Was Established. f ' Wooden money, in the shape of ex chequer tallies, was, prior to the es tablishment of the ltank of England .n 1694, current in the country named. Tallies was the name given to the lotched sticks formerly in use in Eng ,and for keeping the accounts in the exchequer. They are described by Tid-Ilits as square rods of hazel or wil low, inscribed on one side with notches indicating the sum for which the tally was an acknowledgment, and on two other sides with the same sum in Roman characters. When the trans action was completed, the tally record ing it was split lengthwise, so that tach section contained a half of each notch and one of the written sides. One-half, called the tally or check, was given to the person for whose service it was intended; the other half, called the counter tally, was retained in the exchequer until its corresponding tally ihould be brought in by the person who had last given value for it. It thus became a current token repre lenting cash. After th e establishment of the Hank of England government payments were made through its tgeacy. The use of tallies in the ex chequer was abolished by statute 23, Jeorge 111. The old tallies were, by sets 4 and 5, William IV., ordered to be destroyed, and it was the burning of them that caused the conflagration by which the old houses of parliament were demolished. -Tipping" In Enrope. The trouble over "tips" in American hotels and restaurants would be large ly obviated if the European system of percentages prevailed here. No French man pays extravagantly for the ex cellent meals he gets in Paris, but as every Frenchman pays something, the waiter is satisfied. All OTer Europe it is the custom to give the waiter a gratuity amounting to one-twentieth of the bill that he presents, lie gets a five-cent tip for a one-dollar meal. Here a man is often expected to pay a twenty-five-cent tip for a seventy-five rent meal, particularly when he gets in a summer hotel. In America the tips are large, the returns indifferent. In Europe a small but fixed gratuity Secures the best service. The European waiter is not paid by the landlord. sften pays for his place.

Curious Concealment of a WUL - The ingenious novelist could not in vent a queerer hiding place for a will than one reported from real life by the Maine Farmer.

A few drops of glycerine had leaked from the cans and lodged in the framework of the wagon. Strange to relate, the blacksmith escaped injury, but he at once hung up in his window a little card upon which wii written in a sledge-hammer hand: 'No nitro-glycer ine wagons need apply.' •» _ "One clay in the Titusville oil field k nitro-glycerine manufacturer was standing in front of a hotel, absent mindedly kicking the flagstone walk, when there was a report about as loud as the snap of a cap.

OVER-STIMULATED BRAINS,^ Effect of the llothouae Forcing Atmos- phere of I'nrte. ~ There is something in the social at mosphere of l'aris that is apt to keep the nervous system in a state of high tension, says a London journal. It is not easy to say what this influence is— whether it depends upon climate, eon vertional habits, or fermenting ele ments of character which affect the mass; but few people have stayed in Paris a little while without having felt it. It produces a feverishness of mind that makes all rest distasteful if not in tolerable. Women are probably not more liable to it than men; but. their nervous fiber being weaker, they hava less power of resistance. » " (i > - The nevrosees of Paris society'have been a fortune to the doctors of late years. In their case it cannot be said that literary work has done the mis chief. Writing has really very little to do with the increasing demand for med ical baths. If authors and journalists living in Paris are more liable thau other people to fall into that restless, anxious and sleepless state which is the sign of an unduly excited brain, and which, unless arrested in time, leads to nervous disease, that renders life a burden and may end in insanity, it is not to be referred so much to the actual work that they manage to get through as to the continual excitement in which they too often live. There is so much temptation in Paris to rush about and to talk, and the work that has to be done is put off until the faculties are jaded, and need to be whipped up to their task with strong coffee or some other stimulant. Then the effect of the stimulant, and the ex citement of nervous exhaustion has to be corrected by a sedative 6uch as bromide of potassium, and more fre quently by the narcotic chloral or some other preparation of the soothing but deadly poppy. The over-excited who do not have recourse to calming drugs, suffer all the tortures of insomnia, and these must be abated at auy cost. • The doctors prescribe complete re pose and mountain uir. Rut the fact is that the majority of jaded writers are unable to follow the doctor's advice, and among those who can there are few who w : " ""I/" o-i- minds » Jalt Retribution. * m , , ■ "Did you hear about Andy?'! asked one reminiscent westerner of another.

The morning that he woke up sober and found all his money gone he set out to punish himself by walking to Cripple Creek. He wouldn't borrow a cent.

A subscriber of the Record living at Hold Reach, Ore., read the 'blood-curdling story, but neglected to notice that it was an event that oc ■curred almost forty years ago. Fancy ing that the massacre had just taken place and there was danger of a general outbreak, he at once proceeded to rouse the neighborhood. Notices were posted, a public meeting called and a company of volunteers organized to proceed at once to take the field against the blood thirsty Indians. Finally the idea struck some one that it would be well to communicate with Crescent City and ascertain the exact state of affairs.

As exposed in the Honolulu news papers, the proposed uprising was planned by a man named Katzer, an officer in Austrian army, and later a sergeant in the Fifth United States infantry. It was a plan to secretly arm several hundred royalist sympathizers, and by concerted action to capture the govern ment executive building and the three or four small steamers plying among the islands, and then to establish a tem porary government at Hilo. One of the steamers was to be quick ly dispatched to Victoria, B. C., for arms, ammunition and men, who were to have been previously enlisted by an agent now in the United States. Several thousand dollars bad been pledged by the wealthy royalists who were implicated. The plot was ex posed to the government, however, be fore any actual revolutionary prepara tion could be made. Katzer fled to Frisco, and Wetmore, a journalist who bad been admitted to the revolution ary circle and who exposed the plot to the government, was a passenger on the same steamer. Ostensibly be was banished, but it is believed in Hono lulu that the government officials sent bint away as a ruse to protect him from the wrath of the royalists.

An entire Sunday edition might i tilled with stories connected with the late Judge 1.. <». Lamar, says the New Orleans /'/. : .Mr. Lamar possessed a reniarkalde jieculiarity. I'nnsual excitement seemed to act upon his in rves like an opiate and put him t" sleep. This was thoroughly exemplitieil after his remarkable verbal encounter with the great New Yorker, Mr. t'onkling. Mr. Lamar, after scar ifying Conkling for life, leaving him with burning yet deferential resent ment, closed as follows: " I apologize to the Senate for the seeming unparliamentary language" (advancing to the New Yorker and throwing his index linger full in his face), " language that no man, good man, deserve*, and no brave man will fear." Immediately Mr. Lamar walked to the cloak room on the Dem ocratic side, lav down on a sofa, and in three minutes was sleeping as calmly as a babe. There was great excite ment. It was believed Mr. Conkling would not submit to the language ap plied to him, and that, while he prob bably would not challenge Lamar, be ing an athlete, he would meet him on the streets and assault him. The late Senator Zcb Vance, a Hercules in statue, who was devoted to Mr. Lamar, without the knowledge of that gentle man, or of any other human being, shadowed Mr. Lamar for some days, explaining afterward that ii Mr. Conk ling ever struck Lamar lie intended to beat him to death. Mr. Vance, however, did not know what those in timately acquainted with Mr. Lamar knew. In all probability Mr. Lamar could have whipped them both. He prilled himself upon his muscle, and lias often said to the writer: "I be lieve 1 am better lilted for a prize lighter than 1 am for a Senator." It was apprehended by some that Mr. Conkling would challenge Mr. Lamar. Conkling was known to be an expert with the short sword. Mr. Lamar said afterward to an intimate friend in discussing the matter: "If .Mr.Conk ling had sent me a challenge 1 should have chosen short words." "Why, Mr. Lamar," replied his friend. " Conkling is an expert with the abort sword." " I know that," replied the Senator, " but I took some lessons with the short sword myself when I was sent by the confederacy on a mission to Russia." " Why, Senator," the friend replied, " you have not bad a short sword in your hand in twenty-live years." " I know that," coolly replied the senator, "butl should have chosen short swords."

AN INJURIOUS HABIT. itllsa In Ike Way at Excess. A new habit has asserted itself which suggests a curious train of thought as to direction in which hu man aberrations in the matter of per sonal habits may eventually tend. It is said, remarks the Chicago Israelite, that the new habit, that of " salt eating," is not only greatly on the in crease, particularly among women of all classes, but that it is iu many cases a most serious disease. It be gins with a desire for large quantities of salt with the food, and if not checked reaches a stage in which the patient carries salt crystals about with herself wherever she goes, and is con tinually nibbling at them. The symptoms are a peculiar yellowness and shrinking of the skin, which is followed by the loss of all the hair, even that of the eyelids, until the suf ferer resembles one of the wretches who have been condemned to work in quicksilver mines. The desire for salt is said to be universal, not only in human beings hut in all vertebrate animals, hut the degradation of this taste into a positive disease is entirely new, while the immediate cause re* mains extremely obscure.
