Il" Telegraphic Typewriter. After laboring for fifteen years on the problem of rapid telegrapy by means of the typewriter an inventor claims to have solved it. The system is said to print telegraph messages at the rate of two hundred words a min ute. The message is diotated straight lo the typewriting operator. By a device attaohed to the typewriter a ribbon about an inoh wide is perfor ated by a series of holes varying in position and number aocording to the charaoter represented. The actual per foration of the tapes is not done di rectly by the operator; if the right let ter is struck on the keyboard the ma chine automatically does the rest. vVnen the message is finished the rib bon is fed into another machine. la its passage over a roller smaller metal lic fingers press upon it, snd as differ ent holes come under the fingers electrioal oonnection is made with the metal roller beneath whioh produces the neoessary letters. This machine is in synchronyT with another machine at the end of the line, and whatever letters are produced on one maohine, say in New York, are instantly produced on an other maohine, say in Washington. The invention can ba applied to any standard typewriter. In the case of large business firms, newspaper cor respondents or othera using the tele graph extensively, punches and rib bons would be attached to the type writers in their offioes and the mes sages would be delivered to the tel egraph offices on spools ready for in stant dispatch. By tho new .method all possibility of tapping or robbing the message is obviated. The system is ten times swifter than the Morse and has the additional advantage of turning ont the message in page form ready for delivery. The cost for transmission is brought very low and the possibilities of the system are sug gested by the fact that business men, instead of sending their letters by mail, can have them sent by wire at the same cost as special delivery. Boston Transcript. Emigration to the South. It is no longer westward, but south ward, that the star of empire takes its way. As set forth in the Times-Herald of a reoent issue, the march of emi gration is making a wide sweep toward the milder climates of the south, and men and women are fleeing from re gions of eight and nine months' winter to a more equable zone. They are be ginning to discover that it is an im mense waste of energy and money to spend more than one-half of their earnings and two-thirds of their timo in the mere effort to keep warm and comfortable, when they may have the condition for nothing. That this impulse was bound to come just ss soon as the southern states re covered from the effects of the war and became accustomed to new channels of business and labor has long been fore seen. The progressive southerners have themselves been alert to bring about this better day, and their spirit has been manifested, not only in the success of the Atlanta exposition, but in the vast industries that have pros pered at Birmingham, at Chattanooga, at Knoxville and other notable points in the south. The people understand also that the negro problem, if not settled, is in progress of settlement, and that it is at least no longer a source of irrita tion. Hence that barrier is thrown down and there is no deterrent cause to bar the overflow of humanity from the busier and more active hives of the world.-Chicago Times-Herald. A Dog's Sixth Sense. L. C. Meaohamp, living near Homer, La., on the edge of Arkansas,is a great hunter, and has a fine deerh mnd.Dun, of which he is justly proud. A few days ago Mr. Meucha mp was going squirrel hunting, and in order to keep Dan at home he was compelled to tie him np. The hound whined and beg ged, bnt finding that his master was obdurate he at last lay quite peaceably before his kennel all day. At 5 o'clock in the afternoon, how ever, when Mrs. Meachamp was be ginning to look for her husband's re turn, Dan became so unusually restless that she went out to see what was the matter. In spite of her repeated ef forts she could do nothing to pacify him, and at last, to her utter aston ishment,!^ broke the rope and bound ed away over the fenoe and into the woods. He was gone probably a hr.lf I hour when he oame running back panting And almost breathless with hia master's hat in his mouth. Mrs. Meachamp became at once alarmed, and calling her son, they set out to find Meachamp, the dog all the time bounding along in front and lead ing tbe way. At last they carno upon Mr. Meachamp lying helpless in the wood*, where at precisely 5 o'clock he bad fallen in a little ditch and broken a emull bone in his leg. The dog'a knowledge of the accident at tbe very moment of its occurrence seems al most incredible, bnt the truth of this is beyond dispute. -Phila. Times. Sure of His Choir.

I begin a .new picture to-morrow." "I shouldn't, old fellow; whynot take a good rest?" suggested the oth er. "Then you will have redoubled zest for your work." "Yes, I think you're right," said Hardy, after a pause ; "I'm feeling a bit seedy, and I can now run to it, especially after this," and he threw tho letter containing the cheque across the table to his friend. "It's all right so far as it goes, but you might get four times that sum for tho pictnra before the Academy closes," was I1?3 comment. "Your patroD, however, is worth cultivating -a Sjuth African milliouairo baro net."' "Indeed 1 but I mutt accept his bid -money and I havo long been any thing but intimato acquaintances, and now it's inclined to be chummy I mnsin't say it nay," laughed the artist. "What should I say to this, chappie?" ho went on, passing the other letter. "That you will accept the commis sion, if he can wait-as you are going away for a month-those are your or ders," said the critic, returning the letters. "Pin going to rest myself, and shall take you off with me to Paris for a month." Having agreed to go by the express fr. m Charing Cross thc following night, they parted till then; the journ alist to finish his article and the pain ter to answer his two correspondents. It would surpass the wit of man to imagine a more miserable morning." All night long the wind had blown as though it meant to break its record, and with the daylight the rain came down in that determined manner it assumes when it intends to continue all day. As the miserable hours of daylight waned, the gale was still undimin ished,, and as our travelers turned Strandward they thought the cab must be blown into nothingness ; however, it remained intact, and they were soon racing toward the 6ea in the express. As they approached Dover the rain ceased and the wind dropped consid erably, but tbere was still enough left to indicate nrough passage. They were soon moving toward the gangway to board the steamer; Tho journalist was descending and the artist about to follow, when a sudden blow in the back sent him almost off his legs. Hastily looking around, he was surprised to seo a young laldy sit ting in the middle of the gangway, and he at once assisted her up. .'May I offer you my arni?" he asked. "Thank yon ; I must accept, else I shall never reach the boat 1" They were soon on board*, and the lady sought the saloon. The; artist and his friend paced the deck dnring the passage, and as the wind dropped tho moon rose and the stars came out ; so enjoyable became the sceno that they wero sorry when they arrived at Calais. It was not till Paris was reached that Hardy again spoke to his fair assail ant. As they were exchanging cards she suddenly exclaimed : "Oh, there's my father-I must introduce you." At that instant a tall, elderly, jovial looking man came up, and was intro duced as Sir Henry Greet, and the daughter told how Hardy had saved her from what might have been a nasty accident. "It is an unexpected pleasure to meet such a famous artist," said the baronet. "You and your friend must dine with us to-nigbt-we are at the Hotel de l'Athenee, Rue Seri'.. " "* " The dinner was a jolly affair, a^d at its conclusion they separated with buoyant spirits. Especially was this the case with Hardy, upon whom Miss Greet had made a deep impression. During tho next few days they met re peatedly, and era long their friend ship ripened into something which tho artist concluded must be love. They visited the Salon together, and did all the sights in each other's soci ety-had eyes and ears for nothing else but their individual selves. When the artist and the journalist left tho gay city, the latter took it as a matter of course when he was told that the former was engaged to Miss Greet. Tho baronet and his family were to stay another month in Pans. Hardy had just finished his morning pipe and was selecting a subject suit able for the commission he had to exe cute. His mind was brimful of ideas for paintings, so that it was no easy task to mako a choice. At length he decided that the work should be called "Beside Still Waters"-a lady stroll ing in the twilight by the side of a quiet stream reading a letter from her lover. "Now, Miss Nash, if you please, we will begin," he said to his model, and placed her in the desired position. Then the artist took up his palette and brush and seated himself in front of the blank canvas. Then it was that his eyes missed a well-known sight, and they glared round the studio in bewilderment. With an effort and a sigh he pulled himself together and settled down to work. Dipping his brush in the color, he lifted it to the canvas and-made nothing but a emt ar n mn the sheet. Again and again he essayed to bring back his departed talent, but in vain. With intense and unutterable horror it dawned npon him that his artistic genius had been but an intellectual will-o'-the wisp. No sound escaped from him ; he was at once transfixed, staring with wide-open eyes at the canvas bespattered with daubs without form and void, and anon to the blank wall beyond his easel. All the time the model had been an astonished witness of this remarkable scene, but as the brush fell from Hardy's grasp, and sinking upon a chair he covered his face with his hands in abject misery, she rushed up to him. "Are you ill, Mr. Hardy?" she asked breathlessly. "Oh, it's nothing-only-only I can't paint-all conception of how to do it has completely gone-like a frightful dream when one awakes. It's awful!" And an eternal darkness seemed to gather over his very being. Just then tbere was a knock at the dcor, and the baronet and his daugh ter were ushered io. They were deep ly concerned at the phenomenon that had occiured to the artist. "Now, you and Mary must marry, and then possibly," the baronet said, laughing, "your intellectual- blight will disappear. You'll be all right linancially ; I've arranged that part of the business, so it won't matter if you never paint again." A fortnight later the wedding took place; Hardy was too occupied to dwell on his lost genius. Three days only remained of their honeymoon in Scotland, when a telegram arrived an nouncing that Sir Henry Greet had died suddenly from paralysis. So, with heavy hearts, the young couple at once returned to London. Six months had gone since the wed ding, and the painter and his wifa were living in the late baronet'? houso in Grosvenor square, which, along with all tho other property of tbs dead mao, had been left to them. Bat Hardy still hankered after his lost art, and continued to rent his old studio. Ono morning he and Moore were smoking in the familiar room ; every thing had been kept exactly as on the day when the artist's genios left him. "Alfred," said Hardy, "I've a strange fancy, if 'Tho Dawn of Love' were placed ago;i on 'hawaii beyond the easel, T think 1 could paint a little. Let's act upon the idea " A contle of hours afterward the fa mous picture was in its old position. Hardy sat before a cleau cauvas. The model posed for "Besido Still Waters,," and af:er a steadfast look at "Tho Dawn of Love," the artist be gan operation. To his great surprise the old skill came back to him as quickly as thought, and with such a power as he had never known before, and once more tho glow of inspiration shone in his eyes. At the next exhibition at tho Boyal Academy "Beside Still Waters" was even more popular than the celebra ted "Dawn of Love." Ever afterward Edward Hardy's genius for painting was marvellous when "The Dawn of Love" was before him, but unless in tho presence of his tailsman ho had not the remotest no tion of his art. Cases aro on record where bj sheer force of will painters have given to their brain creations the figures in their pictures-the pow er of hypuotizing their authors, the artists themselves. Herico it has now and again arisen that a painter hus only been able to work at all whilo in view of ono of his masterpieces. And thus it was with Hardy and his "Dawn of Love." The magic influence of a product of the intellect, as our story shows, is but an indication that there is a genius and an inspiration imparted to some by ways that wo cannot fathom, but which aro the inscrutable designs of the Being Beauteous.-Tit-Bits. An Unfortunate Gilt, A civil engineer who boards at a Capitol street house has just returned from a surveying trip. Immediately opposite bim at tho table sits a young lady, with whom the mau of lines and figures is infatuated. She greeted bim as he carno in at noon from his trip : "Oh, 1 am glad to see you. I know it must be horrid to have to sleep in all sorts of places, and such chilly nights, tao. Now come right in with mo and tell us all about it." The young man, conscious of hav ing had to sleep on the ground tho night before, wanted to get to his room unobserved and change his clothing, but i? was too late, so he concluded to go immediately to the dining room. There the conversation was re newed, and the civil engineer having reached tho poetic stage of love's young dream expatiated moat elo quently upon tho beauties of nature, the sense of peace and rest denied when lying upon the green carpet of earth under thc blue canopy of heaven, and other touchingly pathetic and charming similes. Then he remem bered that ho had found an exception ally pretty clump of moss, which ho had brought homo for the object of his adoration: "While out in the woods I thought of my friends in tho house," hs said, "and have in my pocket a sample of nature's beauties, which I hope you will allow me to present to you. " Then, with a bow, he drew forth from his pocket the mobs also a small sized snake that had crept in and curled up in the warm pocket. The reptile darted across the table, the young lady fainted, the other board ers jumped on tho chairs, everybody screamed, while the reptile glided around, seeming to play hide and seek among the dishes. Finally one of the gentlemen present killed the snake with the carving knife, and after tho landlady had bestowed a withering look upon the young man and told him that she was "in tho habit of en tertaining ladies and gentlemen only," and that "no gontlemau would play such a joke," ho was allowed to go, and he will never return.-Washing ton Star. Humane Way to Kill Lobsters. Tho question as to whether there could not be a more humane method of killing lobsters devised, than the boiling now in vogue, has been dis cussed in tho London Spectator lately, and some one said they could bo killed instantly by a penknile, and the Spec tator comes down to details in reply by saying : "Amateur lobster catchers off the Isle of Wight kill the creature by spik ing it through the shell at what looks* like the back of tho head with a strong bladed clasp-knife." Probably in a few repetitions the executioners learn exactly where to strike, for the point is a limited spot knosvi in human physiology as "the respiratory center"-i. e., the point which when touched inhibits any further breathing, and which was called by FJourens the vital knot. Cut tle have long been killed by piercing it, and it seems tho most humano of all violent deaths.-New York Inde pendent. Where the Presidents Are Buried.

During tho past two months tho Milne brothers of Monea juth, UL, have been sending out pictures and accounts of the "smallest colt in the world," a diminutivo specimen of the equino species foaled at their pony farm in July, 1894. This is being done because of an item which ap peared in tho Republic during tba summer, and which claimed that an Indiana Shetland colt belonging to Harry B. Smith, of Hartford City, was the "smallest colt ever foaled on American V" The equine dwarf of the Hoosic. State was twenty-one inches high and weighed twenty-seven and one-half pounds on tho day of its birth. Milne's "vest pocket edition" colt, i cording to tho accounts which wero given at the time, and whinh have been revived by the latj "curious note" in this paper, was but twenty inches high at birth and weighed but twenty pounds-on3 pound exactly for each inch.

In Berlin a Singhalese baffles all in vestigations by the physicians by the impenetrability of his skin. The bronzed Easterner, a Hercules in shape, claims to have found an elixir which will render the human skin im pervious to any metal point or sharp ened edge of a knife or dagger, and calls himself the "Man with Iron Skin." It is true that it has been im possible to even scratch his skin with sharply-pointed nails, with finely- j ground knives and daggers. Ho is now exhibiting himself, and | his greatest feat is to pass with his en tire body through a hoop, the inside of which is hardly big enough to ad mit his body, and is olosely set with sharp knife points, daggers, nails and other equally pleasant trifles. Through this hoop he squeezes his body with absolute impunity. The physicians do not agree as to his immunity, and some of them think that Bhanniu, which is his name, is a fakir who has, by long practice, succeeded in harden ing himself against the impressions of metal upon his skin. The professors of the Berlin clinic, however, consid ered it worth while to lecture about the man's skin, pronouncing it an in explicable matter.-London Daily Graphic. Earliest Vegetable? Alway?

A free supply of sugar will do this; so will the starchy foods; cream, and seme other fats. But to become fleshy, and yet remain in poor health, is not what you want. Cod-liver oil increases the weight because it is a fat-producing food. But it does far more than this. It alters, or changes, the pro cesses of nutrition, restoring the normal functions of the various organs and tissues. of Cod-liver Oil, with hypo phosphites, is pure cod-liver in a digested condition. So that, when a person gains in weight from taking Scott's Emulsion, it is because of two things: First, the oil has acted as a fat-producing food; and, second, it has restored to the body a healthy condi tion. Such an improvement is permanent: it comes io stay. SCOTT'S EMULSION has been endorsed by thc medical profession for twenty ycart. (Ask your doctor.) This is because it is always palatable-always uniform-always contains the purest Norwegian Cod-Hver Oil and Hypofhosphites. Put up in 50-cent and $1.00 sizes. The small size may be enough to cure your cough or help your baby. Beoause he had palpitation of the heart, Mr. A. J. Allen determined to quit smoking.
