Flour Mill in Dakota That Ma« to Bo Abandoned Beoaoao of look of Breeses. The old wind wheel flour mill at Hur ley has been torn down and the mate rial of which it was composed will be convened into a more paying enter prise, says a Yankton report. This old mill and its failure to justify the faith of the parties who built it point to the fact of one big change in the conditions of -this country during the last 20 years. When settlers first lje gan to arrive there the constant and heavy winds which were a source of extreme annoyance to all, as also of positive loss ns well, in grain blown out of the grounds in the spring and broken down in a more mature state, was at the same time an inspiration that a fortune would go to the man or men who could successfully utilize this great power in the industries of the country. Many attempts in this direction were made, and covered the whole range of farm operations from a threshing ma chine to running the whole farm from central station. None of these at tempts was more successful than that of milling, and many mills of thAwind variety have run continuously for years and made money. The atmos pheric conditions seem to have changed, however, and mill after mill lost money and was dismantled. Un less the old mill at Kampseka is still standing, „the Hurlej' mill was the last in the state, and none has been able to run for many years. GYPSY COMMUNICATION. Wee of the "Patteran" ant Other Method« of Informing Their Wandering Brethren. The ancient road signs of the Ro many, the "patteran," takes the place of sigiüwards or maps. The "patter an" is a little, carefully arranged pile ot sticks, grass or stones, placed at eross roads, where none but a gypsy would notice it any more than anyone but a Romany could read It; but to him it is as plain ns the noonday sun, and by it—a succession of such wayside tokens—one family or company can follow others who may be days ahead of them for hundreds of miles, says Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly. Though the gypsy has uses for other methods of communication besides the mysterious "patteran," he is not a let ter writer. He rightly cares first for his own immediate family circle; the closest "inlaws" do not travel together unless perfectly congenial or unless it is convenient for them to do so, and as the roving life is not conducive to let ter writing, even the nearest relatives do not usually hear from each other directly more than once or twice a year at most. In the city livery stables and pawn brokers' shops opportunities are af forded for the exchange of news, but y for those who roam in small groups and rarely strike a large city or the great bureaus of information, summer camping grounds, where all the gossip of the year is retailed, communication of personal family news is uncertain. ENGLAND'S SHODDY BOOTS. Footwear That Look« A*II night, Bat fiolcklr Goes to Pl«eea Wkta. Pat la Uee. & A. ; Boots and shoes in England have been subject to a very considerable fall in prices of late years. Partly this is owing to the use of machinery, partly to the employment of lads where men used to do the work, partly to the use of what was formerly waste mate rial and partly to sheer dodgery and trickery. Men's lace boots are now to be bought for 2s. lid; they are made of leather, too, and to look at them you might think it genuine enough. The truth is, however, the uppers are made of what are known as "center splits," and the soles are an artificial compound of leather waste, states Chambers' Journal. The "center splits" are very ingenious forms of shoddy. Good, honest skins are cun ningly split into three thicknesses. The -center is soft and spongy and has no natural grain upon it; but this de fect in its appearance is supplied by a process of printing which produces a surface "grain*' and makes it, to the inexperienced eye, just like ordinary leather. It is then made up into boots that give every promise of good serv ice—a promise to the eye (to parody Macbeth)—pretty certainly destined to be broken to the hope. Wn Becomes Americanised. An Atchison (Kan.) girl, who is at tending school in Washington, went to the reception recently given by the wife of 'Minister Wu, at the Chinese legation, and of her observations she writes as follows: "The house is very much like an American one. The servants were English, and the few Chinamen scat tered about seemed out of place. I found myself wondering that the serv ants didn't give the Chinamen the family wash, and put them out. The lVus are becoming more like us every year. Formerly Minister Wu received, and his wife was poked back in a cor ner. Now she receives, and he mere ly wanders around and looks lone some, all the same like American man when his wife gives a party." Rapid Traastt. A gentleman traveling on the New Jersey Central flyer put his head out of the window to bid his wife good by, as the train was moving out of the Jersey City station. . Instead of suc ceeding in his purpose, however, he found that he had kissed à strange lady standing on the platform at the next station. This is one of the New York Times' prize stories, and as the Boston Herald suggests the only im proper thing about it is that it only got a second prise. . ............ n \ The Difference Between this same lady's two suits of hair is Just twelve weeks' faithful use of Newbro's Herplcide.

He knows that this paper aims to advertise only the best in its columns, and when he saw Chamber lain's Pain Balm advertised therein for .lame back, he did not hesitate in buying a bottle of it for his wife, who for eight weeks had suffered with the most terrible pains in her back and could get l-o relief. He says; "After using the pain balm for a few days my wife said to me, 'I feel as though born anew,' and before using the en tire contents of the bottle the unbear able pains had entirely vanished and she could again take up her household duties." He is very thankful and hopes that all 'suffering likewise will hear of her wonderful recovery. Tnis valuable liniment is for sale by Corner Drug Co. 1* A.

The body resembles nothing so much as a machine for generating electrici ty. Occasionally it gets out of repair and consequently fails to produce the amount of power needful to keep us riive; ami it is upon this subject that Prof. D'Odiardi has much of interest to i-ny, according to Pearson's Magazine. Pointing out the various static ma chines and queer instruments which adorn his hospital?he explained : "It may at once be said that while there is hardly any result that cannot be obtained by means of electricity and the physical forces suitably adminis tered. yet this electricity, must be con veyed in Hoses as accurately measured as to time, quantity and intensity as the most powerful drug; its effects also vary in the most remarkable man ner according to the strength, quantity '• and quality of the current. "it is possible by its means to in crease by one-fourth the quantity of oxygen in the blond; to increase, or di •''inish the supply of blood to pry part of the organism, however deeply seat ed; to raise or lower the temperature; to increasfe or diminish the frequency and quality of the pulse and respira tion; to stimulate or slacken the func tion of any organ; to recharge ex hausted organic cells and to make them proliferate new cells of a supe rior type; to cause a hundred and one other things which 50 years,ago would have been looked upon as miracles; and. Inst but not least, by its use it Is possible to sustain the circ ulation of the blood and the respiration in eases where without such help syncope or asphyxia would supervene. According to this last method I have kept patients alive for days, until at length the new supply has told upon the system and snatched them from death's door." THE SPANIARD AT HOME. Shares His Bread and Win* with ■very Mrasser and Stabs a Friend Over a Trifle. The Spaniard at home is not under standable. He loves flowers and car ries a pistol. He is passionately fond of the theater, but does not keep quiet that he or his neighbors may hear. He is charmingly courteous ànd inexcusa bly cruel. He shares his bread and wine with every stranger and stabs â friend over'a trifle. Such are the traits of some. The bullfight is the favor ite amusement of this class, and the bullfight, though declining somewhat in popularity, is yet the national di version. A distinguished member of the present ministry has made a large fortune and is adding to it yearly by breeding fighting bulls. The proverbial Spanish courtesy has not diminished toward Americans by reason of the recent little war. The American—the North American, as he calls the voyager from the United States, in distinction from his kins man from South America—is given a most cordial greeting throughout Spain. The English are not liked, but the dislike of the English does not ex tend to their American cousins. There is, on the contrary, a real admiration, such as one brave man may feel for an other, no matter what the result of a combat between them. The Spaniard goes out of his way to do the Ameri can visitor a kindness. True, he has not many American visitors; not near ly so many as the other European countries, but he exerts himself to the utmost for thos^he has. ed in of it MILLIONS FOR BEAUTY. .eakBOSr« of American Income Through CMtlsens Who Spend Thotr Time and Money Abroad. The greatest economic pitfall of our western civilization is, in my judg ment, waste, and our chief item of waste is the leakage of income to Europe, through citizens who live wholly or partially abroad, says Brooks Adams, in Municipal Affairs. These individuals live abroad because they find their senses gratified in Eu rope more perfectly than in the United States, because in some respects Eu ropeans are more .intelligent than Americans. Bankers estimate that Americans spend upward of $100,000, 000 annually in foreign countries—a sum, possibly, not far from the net earnings of the United States Steel company, after deducting the cost of the renewal of the plant. For the most part, this enormous outlay is dead loss. We have nothing to show for it. It has been absorbed by for eign railways, hotels, theaters and dressmakers. Were New York as at tractive to our own people as Paris, much of this money would stay at home, and we should also attract strangers hither. In reality, New York somewhat resembles a gigantic railway junction. New York is thronged, but those who visit her are apt to come for business, and not to tarry for pleasure. The same thing is true of most American cities. Birthday of a Nation. The new Australian federal govern ment is appointing a Commonwealth day on the lines of the American In dependence day. It is now engaged in weighing the claims of July 1, when QUeen Victoria assented to the con stitution; September 30, the date of the proclamation; January 1, the in auguration of the commonwealth, and May 9, the date of the duke of Corn wall's opening of the first federal parliament.
