Antics of Electricity.
The mention of electricity of a frisky
behavior will suggest to most people
some of its actions on the trolley, or
about the street cars, or In connection
with electric light wires, when it
breaks loose-which are all of too dan
gerous a character to be amusing; not
ing not at all its pranks on their own
desks, though no "live" wire be within
a mile of them.
It doe3 not always occur to our
minds that electricity ls playing a lit
tle trick when we take a sheet of writ
ing paper from a pile and find it does
not come alone, but drags along an
other sheet or more, "sticking closer
than a brother."
Similar action of the Immense sheets
of book paper on a printing press in
certain states of the atmosphere-when
one is slid on to the form of type and
has one or more others partially ad
hering to it for a moment, then taking
flight away from the press to some
dingy resting place-frequently keeps
the pressmen in an uncomfortable
state of fidgets.
Such action results from the attrac
tion and repulsion of frictional elec
tricity-the same kind that is produced

periods for seven years, and tried
almost everything I ever heard of, but
without any benefit. Was troubled
with backache, headache, pains in the
shoulders and dizziness. Through my
mother I was induced to try Lydia E.

Mrs. HARRY HARDY, Riverside, Iowa,

her struggle with serious ovarian trou
ble, and tho benefit she received from
the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound. This is her letter:
" How thankful I am that I took
your medicine. I was troubled for
two years with inflammation of the
womb and ovaries, womb was also very
low. I was in constant misery. I had
heart trouble, was short of breath and
could not walk five blocks to save my
fife. 'Suffered very much with my
back, had headache all the time, was
nervous, menstruations were irregular
and painful, had a bad discharge and
was troubled with bloating. I was a
perfect wreck. Had doctored and
taken local treatments, but still was no
better. I was advised by one of my
neighbors to write to you. I have now
finished the second bottle of Mrs. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, and am
better in every way. I am able to do
all my own work and can walk nearly
a mile without fatigue; something I
had not been able to do for over two
years. Your medicine has done me
more good than all the doctors."

Two Curious Clocks.
The ingenuity of the scientist who
establislred a "dock cf flowers" by
planting in regular order specimens
whose corollas opened at specified
hours has been matched by a German
who has composed a "clock of birds."
This is especially a night clock. The
birds and hours of their songs are as
follows: The chaffinch, 1.30 to2 a. m.;
the titmouse, 2 to 2.30; the quail, 2.30
to 3; tho redstart, 3 to 3.30; the ousel,
3.30 to 4; the warbler, 4 to 4.30; the
marshtit, 4.30 to 5; the sparrow, 5. .

Calline "Wild Fowl.
The difference between the notes of
invitation made by various shore fowl
-stints, gray plover, golden plover
ringed plover, knots and saudpipera
-is so slight that no one but a fowler
would notice them. Yet to theso
tho difference is as great as that be
tween the sound of French and Eng
lish. A realty first-class gunner will
sit in a creek in August and call tho
birds up, if within hearing and in
clined to move, in any order j.m like
to name. Even such closely allied
birds aa the curlew and the whimbrel
have different notes. We once saw a
large mixed flock of gray plover,
knots and stints flying past on the
muds, at a distan?a of some ninety
yards. A gunner noticed that thero
were two or three golden plover
among them. The gunner whistled
the golden plover's not?, and from tho
big flock of some sixty birds the pair
instantly flew out, wheeled and passed
within fifty yards, answering the call
in their own language. Perhaps the
best instance of tho aptness of tho
gunners in learning b"rd language
was recently recorded in the West
minster Gazette. It is credited to a
fowler who shot the only specimen of
the broad-billed sandpiper 6ver killed
iu Norfolk. When down on the muds
listening to tho notes of tho shoro
birds ho distinguished ono which he
did not know. He imitated it, the
bird answered, flew up to him and
was shot. Starlings, which 3eem al
most to talk and certainly can imi
t?t? other birds when engaged in their
curious "song," which seems so Uko a
conversational variety entertainment,
arc all the time enjoying a monologue.
Starlings, wheu they have anythirg
to say, as when nesting, or quarreling
for places when going to roost, use
quite different notes. Of all bird
voices the song of the swallow is mest
like human speech-not our speech,
but like the sougs which the Lapp or
such outlandish races eing. A Lapp
woman sings a song just like that of
a swallow at dawn. -Washington Star.

A New Railway FOR Signal.
A curious railway danger or fog
signal has been invented in Chiswick,
England, which has been adopted by
the Southwestern Railway. It con
sists of a large wheel placed at the
side of tho track near a station and
containing around its circumference
thirty-two barrels, each holding two
cartridges. A lever placed along tho !
rail is depressed by the passing train, j
and it in turn pulls back aud then re
leases a hammer which explodes two
cartridges. After the train has passed
tho hammer automatically returns into
position to fire the next barrel. It is
connecte?! by electricity with the sig
nals, and tho man in the box can set
or disconnect it by pressing a button.
The disconnection is worked by a
magnet, which draws down tho ham
mer and prevents firing. It is ex
pected that tho contrivance will
ehoitly do away with the clumsy de? ;
tonators now in use.

Goliath and David.
Like Goliath and David it is to
witness Cyrus Adams Sulloway and
Frank Gay Clarke, the New Hamp
shire representatives in'Congress, go
striding down the corridors of the
Capitol. Mr. Sulloway ia massive,
and is known among his constituents
as "The Tall Pine." About six.feet
six inches in height, his large head is
surmounted with a crop of tangled
lock.;, that stream out from under his
broad slouch hat. His voice is heavy
and powerful, in perfect proportion
with his immense body and huge
limbs. His communications are out
spoken and abrupt. He swings along
the mosaic floor of the Capitol with
the natural gait of a rural statesman,
and his "long legged" boots of cow
hide clatter as ho treads.
Representative Clarke is shorter in
stature. He could waljt under Mr.
Sulloway's outstretched arm with
head erect. Both are nativo Yankees,
but Mr. Clarke is a polished man,
companionable, and possessed of the
rare gift of gracefully adapting him
self to his surroundings. His voice
is pleasing, but forceful enough to be
heard all over* the Hcuso when ho
makes a speech. In contrast with
the big slouch hat and huge black
Prince A lbert of Representative Sullo
way, Mr. Clarke's attire is a neat
derby and a veil-made business suit.

Primitive Agriculture. %
The bnilders of a new country ar?
of necessity agricultural in their pur
suits and tendencies, and the products
they wrest from the desolate barren
ness of tho land give life to new indus- !
tries that form the business fabric and
B^oial sustenance of a nation. In the
primeval forests they toil endlessly,
against unfavorable conditions that
either warp and destroy lifo or develop
character and sturdiness; tho fields,
reclaimed from watery wastes and the
wilderness of untamed nature, respond
sullenly to their repeated efforts, and
barely return sufficient crops to pay
for all the back-breaking, heart-rend
ing labor; and the very meadow lands
and prairies seem to grudge the plo
vers n living, as though they consid
ered them interlopers como to rob
them of their pristine virginity. Un
derneath the broiling summer sun
that dries and parches tho scanty veg
etation that they have nourished into
sickly growth, and in tho teeth of
wintry storms and icy blasts that
freeze and congeal the blood of the
body, they work out the destiny of a
new nation, imparting vigor aud de
termination or weakness and imbecil
ity to future generations, according
to whether they conquer their environ
ments or permit themselves to be mas
tered by them. The conflict extends
through many years of desperate dis
couragement, and the end is not fore
seen even by those who die at a ripe
old age in the rank and file of the
An Electrical "Water Forgo.
Great as aro the possibilities of
electricity their full scope is probably
only feebly comprehended. One of
the latest devices is a water forge.
The details are as yet the secret of
the inventor, but in effect the method
is as follows: A tank shaped some
what like an iron sink is filled with
water, which is highly charged with
electricity. The piece of iron to be
manipulated is held by a pair of pin
cers which are attached to an electrio
wire. When all is ready the iron is
dipped into the water, of course caus
ing the positive aud negative poles to
come in contact. It takes from ten
to sixty seconds for the iron to become
hot enough to be bent or worked as
required. An interesting and impor
tant fact is that the heat manifests it
self ouly upon that portion of the iron
that is covered by the water, thus
rendering it much more controllable
than forges of tho ordinary pattern.
If one inch is under water, only one
inch will be red, and so on with any
As yet tho origin of pearls is a mat
ter of moro speculation. The old
theory that they were "congealed dew
drops pierced by sunbeams" was sup
ported by naturalists as late as 1684,
and is evidenced in a Venetian medal
bearing an open oystershell receiving
drops of rain, with the motto, "By the
Divine Dew." Later conchologists,
however, contend that the pearl nuc
leus may be some minute particle, as
a grain of sand, or the frustule of a
diatom, or a tiny parasite, or perhaps
one of tho ova of the pearl oyster it
self. This particle of foreign body is
gradually surrounded by thin layers
of nacre until it is completely encysted
and tho pearl formed. The consecu
tivo layers may vary in brightness and
color, and a defect may be caused by
contact with auother foreign substance,
thus changing tho value with eacbnew
i.^yer and sometimes causing a "lively
kernel" or "seed" to be inclosed in an
apparently poor pearl,-Lippincott's.

rare affection. It is characterized by
tho appearance of glandular tumors, |
first appearing iii the neck and arm- j
pits aud extending in groups through
out other portions of the body. Young j
adults are the most frequent subjects.
The malady is always associated with
impoverishment of the blood and tho
relative increase of its white cells, also
with marked enlargeiuDut of the spleen
and changes in the bone marrow, and
generally ends fatally within two years
after tho first appearance of symp
toms. The swellings, which are at
first ifiolated, vary from the size of a
bean to that of a hen's egg, and final
ly multiply and coalesce, forming an
almost continuous chain of growths,
those encircling the neck being often
larger in circumference than the head.
Tho early removal of tho primary
enlargements is sometimes beneficial
and occasionally curative, but, as a
rule, the fundamental error of nutri
tion, which is at the bottom of all tho .
trouble, is scarcely possible of correc
tion by internal remedies. The pre
disposing causes of the disease are not
hereditary in character. In a fair
proportion of cases the initiatory
swelling of tho glands is caused by
some comparatively trivial ailment,
suchas au ulcerated tooth, an inflamed
throat or a "running" ear. Life is
terminated by exhaustion. Some
times, however, death resuits from
suffocation or from starvation in con
sequence of obstructive growths in
the throat.-New York Herald.
Dr. Clifton F. Hodge, of Clark Uni
versity, has been conducting investi
gations iuto the habits of toads and
other small creatures. One of his ex
periments was with bats. Dr. Hodge
took half a dozen of the bats home with
him, and installed them in his parlor.
At first they greeted any friendly ad
vances with chattering auger. After a
little while, they became quite tame;
and, whenever their jailer entered the
room, they would fly to him for food.
They never reached the point of allow
ing themselves to be handled, but they
were friendly. Their home was in the
folds at the top of the window draperies;
and, when night came, and sometimes j
in the daytime, they would spend their ]
time flying about the room, regardless ;
of the presence of members of the i
family. Dr. Hodge would occasion- :
ally feed them with insects in the !
evening, releasing netful after netful j
of the night-flying varieties; and never \
a bug remained in the morning. They
took everything, from a spider to a
polyphemus moth. One morning tho
doctor counted while one bat devoured
sixty-eight house-flies. Ho believes
the bat would be almost as suscepti
ble to taming as tho monkey.-New
York Sun. j

For three months she was not only unable

"I was afflicted with female troubles and

A Conjurer's Story.
The Ceylon Independent, In some re
marks in connectios with a proposed
visit of Carl Hertz, the well known
conjurer, to Colombo, tells this story:
"It was at a quiet party, and Carl
Hertz, the famous conjurer, had been
delighting the company-especially the
ladies-with many of his finest trlck3.
AU this time one of the parlor maids
had been passing in and out with cups,
cakes, glasses, and so on. She was
much Interested and when the hostess
gave a sign that nothing more was '
needed, tho girl still lingered on to
see the completion of the trick Just
begun. "Will some one oblige me with
a heavy shawl cr cloak?' he said. 'Now,'
he went on, selecting a big cashmere
shawl, 'you observe the thickness of
the shawl?" they all did, breathl :ssly,
including the maid at the door. 'Now, ;
will one of you be good enough to 1
write a number of three figures on a
piece of paper, being careful not to let
me see what is wrltton.' With trem
bling fingers one of the girls did no,
while the maid at the door leaned for
warid and began to breath hard. 'Now,
place the written paper, with the
Agares on the upper side, under thg !
shawl as I hold it.' It was done, tho
thickness of the shawl Oeing between
Carl Hertz and the paper as he look
ed down toward it. There was breath- j
less silence. Then he said: 'Surely,
the number ls 7CL7 It was. He had f
apparently seen right through the thick |
shawl. Every one was dumfounded and
amazed. Then upon the silence brok9
the shriek of the maid at the door.
With one final gaze at the shawl and
one at the handsome conjurer, she hid
her rosy face In her hands, yelling .at
the top of her voice, 'What's the good
bf-me clothes?' and - fled.'-'-Jjondon-L
