TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 25.
The Tallest Man of Modern Times.
?There is now on exhibition at the London
Pavilion the tallest man whose height has
been recorded in modern times. The giant
is named Winkelmeier, and his height is s
feet 9 inches, which is over one foot more
than that oi-Chang, the Chinese giant.
Winkelmeier was born at Friedburg, Austria,
in 1SG?. His fingers span two octaves on a
piano, and the stretch of his arms is enor
mous. He showed no development of this
extraordinary growth up to .the age of four?
teen, but since then he has been growing
rapidly, and medical authorities have ex?
pressed the opinion that he likely to increase
till he is twenty-five.
The Fastest Steamer in the World.?
Spain, at present, possesses the fastest
steamer in the world. Her name is El Des?
tructor, and she is a torpedo cruiser which
can steam with her full armament on board
at the rate of almost twenty-seven miles an
hour. Amoug her other accomplishments
she is able to turn round in a space of four
or five times her own length while going at
full speed and can run 700 milesat full speed
without requiring fresh coal supply.
Many imitators, but no equal, has Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Kemedy.
The Gazette is now the oldest paper iq
the State, and with few exceptions the old?
est in the country, and its usefulness has
been demonstrated and appreciated during
the eighty seven years of its existence. In
its columns has always been found.a mirror j
of passing events, and the careful cbroni
oling of the history of what i3 going on in the
world has ever been its aim. It is always
welcomed in the household, while in" the
counting room and workshop it has boconie
The Gazette has better facilities for ob?
taining news than any paper outside of the
national capital. Situated as it is so clo>e
to the great centre of news, it enjoys daily
the benefit of the Associated Press dis?
patches from every part of the world ; hence
its patrons can read from its columns in the
evening what has transpired that day in
every portion of our own doraaiu as woU as
from every part of the habitable globe.
Consequently it is an every day occurrence
for the Gazette to publish telegrams from
the various European capitals twelve and
fifteen hours earlier than tho morning pa?
Another feature that serves to make the
Gazette a great desideratum with mer?
chants is its afternoon market reports from
New York, Baltimore, Chicago and other
Correspondence from Washington, Rich?
mond and every section of theState, is pub?
lished regularly, and all events of interest
occurring within the bounds of the Com?
monwealth are to be found in the columns
of the Gazette.
The local department furnishes a full and
complete history of everytbiug that occurs
iu and near the city, and this feature will,
as ever, receive careful attention.
The Gazette's circulation is steadily in?
creasing, especially among people who con
suit its advertising columns before purchas?
ing. That this is self-evident may be infer?
red from the fact that a large country edi
tiou?nearly as large as the daily--is sent
all over this section of country three times
a week, aud is read by thousands, most of
whom seDd here or to contiguous cities to
make purchases. The advantages of ad?
vertising in the Gazette are, therefore, ap?
rates of subscription.
