SMART & OIL CITY, PA. VAGARIES OF THE TIDES." Carlona Currents In the Orran and It 0(Thufit. There nre ns ninny vugm-lcs In the voters ns In the wind.. Why, for in stance, kIiouM three ri-.-it ocean cur rents wml thi-lr wiiini wiitirs ncross the wide I'ticiHe, Atlantic ami around the Cape of (iood I I..i-? There have boon many theories advanced to solve the problem of their origin, hut nil have proved fallacious, other and rijually mysterious t in rents exist in well nigh nil parts of tUe world. The tides are so erratic in different parts of the world that one hesitates to accept the theory that the moon controls tliein in all cases. it is on record that the sea has run for weeks out of the .lava sea through the strait of Sunda and thence back ngain for a like peril, d without any per ccptible rise or fall during those times. Then there is the equatorial current that Hows into the Caribbean sen, the over flowing current to the eastward mound Cnpe Horn, the cold stream flowing from the Icy regions of the north past Newfoundland and Nova Krotiu mill along the American const to the extreme end of Florida, the con tinual current running with a velocity of from four to Ave knots an hour through the strait of Cibrnltar into the Mediterranean sea, the swift cur rent running across the rocks niul shoals oft" the end of Itilliton island, which apparently starts from nowhere and ends somewhere in the vicinity of the same place, and the current which, starting half way up the China sea, runs from two to three knots an hour to the northeast nnd tlnally ends ab ruptly oil the north end of Luzon. Then we have those tidal vagaries known the world over as bores. Resi dents on Severn side are familiar with them, and those that run tip the Hu gh and Irawaddy rivers from side to side in a zigzag shape till they reach their limit, ofteu tearing ships from their anchorage, originate nobody knows where or why. The rush of wa ters in the bay of I'imdy is nothing but a huge bore sweeping all In-fore it up to the head of the bay till the waters have risen to the height of fifty or six ty feet. Off Southampton we linve the double tides, while at Singapore it lias lieen observed for days at u lime that there lias boon hut the one rise and fall In the twenty four hours. The tides may lie and very often npia-iir as though they were "moonstruck," but they ii-rlaiiily are not controlled with hard and fast rules by that or any oth er body. London Shipping World.

Vint, preference aud roulette art' Iho principal games. The second is lu mvM Kipular in ariuy circles, while ninny ladies of the high est rank keep roulette tables aud have regular "evenings," on which play goes on for very high stakes.

Olltv SILBERBERG, the tine fleur of (he society of St. IV tersburs are admitted, nnd the entree is eagerly sought.

How High Tan a Balloon RI.et The altitude that may be attained by a balloon depends, first, upon Its size; secondly, upon the filling of gas, and, thirdly. um the weight being carried. A balloon of ordinary size, 4:Vl cubic feet, carrying the stunllest weight that is. one person when tilled with Illuminating gas may reach 'Jn.l Ml feet, but when filled with hydrogen 27.IKH) feet. In order to ascend higher we first of all need a bigger balloon. One may say It was n happy chnnce that the Royal Meteorological institute of Iterlln was provided with a balloon of the unusual dimensions of 3nn,(KK cubic feet. The German eniteror fur nished .KMI for making experiments with it, nnd the Meteorological Insti tute decided to make use of this op portunity for studying the highest re gions of ntuiosphere Harper's Maga zine. A nnd War to Feed Birds. It is quite a common practice for per sons owning pet birds to teach them to take bits of sugar or other food liked by the bird from the lips. It has been discovered that the trainers of young birds in Euroic frequently contract In tills way a peculiar parasitic growth on the throat aud lungs that Is frequently fatal, and a warning has lieen issued by l'rench physicians which may well be heeded by nny one feeding birds from mouth to benk.

Spinach has medicinal properties and qualities eiinil to the most indigo of all blue pills ever made. licet a nre fntteaing. even a moder ately learned mini will explain, because of the sugar they contain.

Los Angeles, Cal., Chosen as the Next Place of Meeting. New York, May 17. The Presby treian general assembly chose Los Angeles as the place of next meeting. The Kev. Dr. David 0. W lie of New York offered a resolution providing that a collection for the Tract society be taken In every Presbyterian church during the coming year. The resolu tion was adopted. Another resolution adopted called on the Presbyteries to vote promptly on creed revision. lly unanimous vote the assembly de cided to send fraternal greetingstothe wow Presbyterian church of Mexico, organized last year, which adopted the constitution of the general assembly cf the Presbyterian church of the I'nlt ed States cf America. Five minutes was also spent In prayer for the new church. Stated Clerk Dr. Roberts read a lht containing the names of 12S Presby terian ministers who had died since the last assembly. Dr. Roberts said that on account of the death of th stated clerk of the New York Presby tery that body had not sent any re port, and that therefore the death of Rev. Dr. George D. Purves of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian church and of the Rev. Dr. Birch of the New York Pres bytery had not been recorded. Dr. Stevenson asked the Presbyter ians to do their best for New York, where only 8 per cent of the population are Evangelical Christians. The minutes were then read, the moderator pronounced the benediction, the doxology was sung and the general assembly was declnred adjourned sine die. The moderator In declaring the ad journment referred to the unanimity In the action taken by the general as sembly. Including the revision of faitV "I should not rare for the revision of creed." he said. "If I did not think It would lead to an era of evangelical work greater than any other In the history of our church." M0R0 TREACHERY. Native Approached Sergeant Walling and Cut Hia Arm Off. Manila, May "7. While Second Lieutenant Robert C. Huniber of the Tenth Infantry and Sergeant Walling of tho same regiment were walking about six miles from Camp Vickers, in Mindanao, they perceived a Bingle Moro carrying a flag of truce.

Probably Fatal Stabbing. Rochester, May 27. George Gard ner, a stage hand in a local theater, was perhaps fatally stabbed by Johnny White, aged about 23. in a saloon on South Water street last evening. Gardner, it is said, was intoxicated when he entered the place, and after abusing the bartender undertook to drag White from behind the bar. White grabbed a large carving knlfo and stabbed his opponent In the right breast JuBt below the shoulder, sever ing an artery. At the hospital It Is thought Gardner will not live. Paid $100 For Caterpillars. Kingston, N. Y.. May 27. Hewitt Dolce, a wealthy and wellknown res ident of this section of the state, ad vertised last Friday to pay 10 cents for each fruit Jar of caterpillars which are infesting hundreds of shade trees here. The jars were to be delivered at his barn. Up to last night he had paid out nearly $100 to 500 persons ranging from grandfathers to 5 year old children. He says he expected $3 or $4 wculcl cover the cost. The caterpillars were destroyed as soon as paid for. Boers' Request Declined. The Hague, May 27. It is celd In Boer circles here that the peace pro posals made to the conference at Ver eenlglng, Transvaal, Included the con dition that the Boers in the field be al lowed to consult with the Boer dele gates In Europe before a definite set tlement Is reached.

"I'd give all I ex pect ever to know of the classics In ex change for that physique. Just think what It means unlimited endurance aud strength. With that nnd a fair share of brains, there isn't anything a mnn couldn't accomplish," The older man smiled at the young ster's enthusiasm. "You're doing very well ns it Is," he said. "The battle may generally lie to the strong and skillful, but it Isn't Just muscular strength that counts. To tell yon the truth, you've Inherited some thing that Is worth more to you than nil the more muscle you could put on In a lifetime, t mean your stomach." "Yes, of course; that's Important, but"- "It's everything, my boy. Now. sup pose I should tell you that that big fol low up thore Is In greater danger of col lapse than you art1 likely to be If you take fair care of yourself nnd exercise in moderation." "How Is that possible? He Is the pic ture of health and strength." "And what do you say to this fel low?" asked the physician. ilnnvlus a photograph from his pocket. It was the likeness of an athlete nut l.nu !i the physical Inferior of the strong man. "This chap." continued the medical expert, "onmo to me for treatment re cently, lie reeded It.

I'm not telling you any tiling new. but It's astonishing how much an elemental truth is overlooked. A man is no stronger than his siom nch. "If your stomach Isn't far latter than that of most Americans, look out! This patient of mine had changed his food, nud It came near costing him his life. So don't he too quick to envy the strung mail, and go ahead with your classics, not forgetting twenty minutes or so a day of well directed exorcise." Now York Herald. ORCHARD AND GARDEN. Onions mny be readily transplanted If growing too thick. Wood should not be allowed ti grow or crusts to form around young fruit trees. Do not buy nny kind of fruit trees or plants simply because they ore cheap. With all transplanting it is Important to see that the soil is well tilled In ii round tho to 'is. Prune spurs to one developed bud. for the nearer the old wood the higher flavored the fruit. A weak solution of Hiultry droppings Is a wonderful stimulant of plant growth. It may be used weekly with good effect. Only well rottisj manure should lie applied around the grapevines. Fresh manure excites the. growth, but docs not mature it. Quince trees should be mulched ns a protection against extreme heat and cold, as the roots are small and usually near the surface. In selecting trees to grow os a wind break it is quite an item to have them of a close growing habit nnd of as near ly pei'iietual foliage as iHisslbie. Plant a double row. Turkish Drllalit.

New York Post. Anrlrnt llookkrrplnn MM hods. The collection of Assyrian nnd Baby lonian records at the British museum has revealed more of the domestic life of peo ple who lived .",000 years ngo than Is known In the ease of our own eniintry men 1,000 years ago. Such was the opin ion expressed by Mr. W. St. Chnd llos enwen when he explaiued these relies to nn interested audience. The clay brick and cylinders beneath the glass eases were covered with characters testifying to a completely organir.i d system of jus tice, marriage, divorce nn 1 commerce. The hookki'cpiiig of 0.0011 years ago wns shown to be wonderfully accurate. A curious form of record is that preserved In the foim of linked elay tablets, which were inclosed hi clay envolonn. also in scrils'd with the terms of the linnsai" tion, so that a double record provided against the possibilities of damage. The "open and closed evidence" spoken of by Jeremiah is supposed to refer to this sys tem. The practice of recording on a brick the name of the king, of the build ing nnd of the city in which it was being erected has had the advantage ill mod ern days that an odd brick may Income tho means of disinterring a city hitherto unknown. London Chronicle. They !on't Care For l)rrsN. Though Wall street men dress well ns a rule, the brokers who do most of their work on the llisirs of the several ex changes seem at times like inolis of "ele clo'es" men.

Perhaps only n woman knows the pleasure afforded by the consciousness of U ing well dressed, but most public nieu are aware of the maKiieiie effect of a tai lor nol le suit. Feinando Wood, who represented the lower w ards of New York hi congress, al ways addressed his rugged, coatless, dirty constituents arrayed in a swallnwtailed resit, while tie and ki.l gloves. The "nil washed" appreciated the compliment and cheered the lender for "Feriuindy Wud." Daniel Webster, know ing that the elo quence even of 1 loinost hone was aided by the folds of his toe 11, always wore his liost clothes when he iipcurcd on the public platform or addressed the seaute. Once, on being asked why he wore such nn elaborate dross when milking a speech, he reproachfully turned tipon the ques tioner nnd asked If he should not present his host thoughts, his host manner, his best gaih when he addressed his fellow men? Put, In truth. Webster's garb wns simply that of the Knglish Whigs In the days of Charles Fox -blue swiillowtailed coat with gilt buttons, buff vest, brown trousers and white cravat. Charles Sunnier one cited it as an an swer to unfriendly critics who complain ed that he wns too fastidious and dog matic when addressing the senate on matters of mere routine. "Mr. Sumner," says Mr. Brooks, "af fected n picturesque style of dress, wear ing colors brighter than those which pre dominated in the senatorial togas of the period.
