Remarkable Christmas Present. Among the curous Christmas' presents of this year will be one (or a man of na? tional reputation, which has been all year in the making. Way last January the present was decided upon, and a friend of the promi? nent genticman requested thc Burrelle Press Clipping Bureau, of New York, to watch every paper in Amcrica, and to take up every item which appeared concerning the man. Thc clipping bureau people followed instructions, and now present the history of one year in the life of this esnecial man. The hlstory ends just after election. and the 20,642 newspaper items found include everything from a three-line edi-1 torial mention to full-page illustrated i stories. These have been mounted on, 3.200 great sheets of Irish linen paper] and bound into three massive volumes. At the head of each item is thc name and date of paper clipped from, this in? formation having been put in with 3 book typewriter. The worda thus in serted amount to 153,852. In actual time. a very strict record of which has been kept, the work haa re quircd sixty-four working days through- j out thc year, and has kept in employment during that time thirty people as rcaders, clippers, sorters, mountcrs and binders. Every newspaper of importance is rcpre Eented. This is merely a specimen of some of the unique orders which get into the Bur? relle Bureau, for .the extent to which clippings are used by individuals and by business conccrns scemi to be rcmarkabla. ? There are many people in private as well aa in public life who need press clip? pings and don't know it. It might be well for them to look up this man Bur? relle, who is said to be so well known that a letter siraply addressed "Burrelle, New York," will reach him with no delay. , SULPHUR HANCOCK SULPHUR COMPOUND.
