‘HP t spring one of the New York pa
pers experimented with the Hummell
apparatus, in connection with papers in
Chicago, St. Louis, Philadelphia and
Boston. The apparatus, as illustrated
atuHteseribed in the Electrical World
and reproduced by Modern Machinery,
consists of a receiver and transmitter,
similar in appearance and in mechan
ism. The transmitter is here shown.
Thyricture to be transmitted is drawn
on a heavy piece of metal foil, the lines
of the drawing being made with an in
sulating ink. The foil is then secured
on the circumference of a horizontal
cylinder on the transmitter, the cylin
der being of about the size of a type
writer rubber roller. There is a sim
ilar cylinder on the receiver, on whose
surface is clamped the paper upon
which the drawing is to be reproduced;
over this is superposed carbon paper,
which is covered in turn by a sheet of
thip paper. A stylus actuated by an
electromagnet is adjusted close to the
surface of the latter, and each time a
current is passed through the electro
magnet the stylus i£ forcibly pressed
against the moving surface of the cyl
inder, and a corresponding mark is
made on the two sheets in contact with
the carbon paper; the outer sheet
serves merely to offer a smooth surface
to-the stylus and to enable the oper
ator to see that the picture is being
properly reproduced. The transmit
ting cylinder passes under a similar
stylus, which latter closes the circuit
between the receiving and transmitting
ends when it rests upon the foil, and
opens the circuit when it passes over
the lines drawn with insulating ink, in
A Young Matron Puts Her Husband’s
j Cigarette Habit.
“Yes, cigarettes are a bad habit, but
there is compensation in all things,”
said a young married woman to a Star
man who was trying to lay the Marne
of his smoking on a silver pocket case
his best girl had given him.
■ v “You see,” continued the young ma
tron, “I would rather Ned didn’t smoke
at all, but so long as he does I prefer
Cigarettes, and stipulate he shall roll
himself. It’s the only way I can
get tny errands done for me downtown
or ever make him remember to pay the
Pjgcs bill on the last day before the dis
count is off. Oh, it is easy enough to
work. You see, Igo on the theory that
it is not wilful neglect of his home and
family that makes a man forget bo do
downtown errands, but the simple fact
that they get crowded out of his head
while he is at business.
“Now, when Ned starts off in the
morning I take his package of cigarette '
papers and write a memoranda on j
them in pencil. If it is stuff from the:
green grocer's I make a list on the top I
paper of the pack and he is sure to see
it about the time he gets to the corner,
and he goes in and leaves the order. If
I want him to telephone Alice to run
over from Mount Pleasant to luncheon,
I note the fact about three papers for
ward, and he is sure to get it soon
after he gets to the office. When I
have anything I want him to run out
and attend to at noon. I put it about on
the sixth pftper, and he is certain to
read it just as he is coming back to the
office from his luncheon. And if It Is
something I want brought home for

There were few rifles and no modern
irtillery in the insurgent trenches.
They had water-pipe guns built up
liron hoops. These were charged with
f scrap-iron and bits of telegraph wire.,
I The masses of natives, armed only with
r lances and bolos, could not have faced ,
the Spanish volleys and their blood-'
stained villages had they not given j
; months of labor to the task of forti
fication- by driving stakes and plaiting
bamboos to retain thick parapets of
earth which obstructed approach and
arrested Spanish bullets. But without
resolute leadership all these devices
must have been useless. Had the In
surgent rabble found a general? The
stragglers told Of a certain ‘‘Captain j
Emilio,” calling himself “General
isimo,” and bianco knew that his rival'
was a young Filipino, an Indio puro,
under thirty years of age. He was
born in the town wnich he was defend
ing. and there he had serv.si the Span
ish government as municipal captain,
like his father before him. To be de
feated by the young Aguinaido in the
last battle of a long career of mill .ary
glory was a hard fate for Ramon
Blanco, Marties de Pena Plata. But
foes of his own household rejoiced in
the Governor-General’3 defeat, and
, plotted to complete his overthrow. It
the latter case actuating the stylus
magnet at the receiving end, which
leaves a mark on the paper of the re
ceiving cylinder in the form of a line
corresponding to the width of the in
sulation over which the transmitting
stylus is passing. The stylus at each
end of the line is simultaneously ad
vanced at the end of each revolution of
the cylinders by a screw of small pitch.
From the description it will be seen
that if the surface of the foil on the
transmitting cylinder were entirely in
sulated, the receiving stylus would
merely draw a number of parallel lines
on the paper corresponding to the
turns of the screw, and separated a dis
tance corresponding to the pitch of the
screw and the angle through which It
is turned at each operation. The Hum
mell apparatus is said to be entirely
practicable, the simplicity of its syn
chronizing mechanism giving it great
advantage over former types of Caselli
picture telegraphs. The apparatus has
been worked duplex with success. In
one instance, a picture was sent from
New York to St. Louis while one was
being received from the same place in
New York, the latter picture in addi
tion being received simultaneously at
Boston. Here, again, sober science re
alizes poetic metaphor, transmitting
not words only, but forms, much after
the fancy of “The Three Jolly Hunt
ers,” who saw “a bobbin’ bunnie cot
tontail that vanished from their gaze."
One said it was a hot baseball,

was an open secret that Blanco had
written to Madrid urging compliance
with the demands of the Filipinos and
the expulsion of the friars from the
parish chußches. Against the fierce
clamor of the clergy the old general
was obstinate but helpless. He would
not resign his ccmmand, even when
his authority was defied in the capital.
In December, General Polavieja landed
in Manila, already deisgnated by his
rank and political opinions as the ris
nig sun of repression and reaction.
At last, on December 9, a direct cable
gram from the Queen named Blanco as
chief of her military household, and re
called him to Madrid. The veteran
embarked for Spain, leaving behind
him, for the shrine of the Virgin of
Anti polo, the sword of honor presented
him for victones in Mindanao in 1895.
The English colony gave him a fare
well banquet, but all Spanish loyalty
was now prostrate at the feet of Gen
eral Polavieja, the apostle of exter
mination and reooncentration. Blanco
was too dull to inspire reform and too
slack to driect progres. but it was not
because Blanco was sluggish and un
scrupulous that he fell. Had he been
fit. for these high tasks he must still
have failed in the Philippines, as lie
falied afterward in Cuba. Spain’s col
onial policy could not be carried on by
men who strove to be simple and loyal,
hopeful and humane. —Harper’s Mag
The direct cause of the rebellion was
not excessive taxation, priestcraft, in
dustrial dissent, or military conscrip
tion, hut all of these working through
what Spanish writers call politiquismo,
and describe as the root of all evil in
the colonies. Politiquismo is political
discussion with a view to reform, and
demands for political and personal lib
erties. Before Magellan reached the
Pacific, the Tagalos had laws, letters,
and foreign commerce; for three hun
dred years they have practised forms
of religion established by Philip 11.,
and have been as good Christians as
can be produced by compulsoin. The
Tagalo language is spoken by some
millions of the most active and pro
gresive inhabitants, and is fit for mod
ern uses, both in literature and busi
ness. Spanish is not understood by
one-tenth of the natives. The
slow progress of education, however,
and the admission of natives to
academic standing as advocates and
doctors, or even as notaries, pharma
cists, and schoolmasters, let in some
light from the modern world. Many of
the reforms demanded were covered
by liberal laws enacted in Spain.—Har
per's Magazine.

is just as bad for the wives and for
the community as ever it was, and so
is mob violence, and so is the business
of plundering one another. As long as
the Chicago jail is full of murderers
the Chicago pulpit should not consider
the community too refined for the
voice of an old-fashined prophet.”

“Choirs and leaders in singing the

Presbyterian Banner, “and if they do
not know, should be taught, that their
business is not primarily to delight the

of the same sacred duty.”
Rev. Dr. William Barry, an English

A trotting race is reported as having
taken place at Rlverhaad, L. 1.. on Fri
day, Aug. 4, in which five members of
the Northville Christian Endeavor
society took part. Many members of
the church, including deacons and
Christian Endeavor leaders, were pres
ent. The race was for SSO. and in
addition the Christian Endeavorers are
said to have backed their favorites
with the revenue from the potato crop.
The Endeavorers lost. Miss Millie
Luce was the only person who raised
a voice in public against the Tloings
of her associate Endeavorers. The
New York Herald is responsible for
the story.

address at the opening, ;ald of skepti
cism: “As for skeptics, though they
did not disparage the human under
standing—the organ through which
God addressed men—they would not
assign supreme authority to the criti

that men should call themselves skep

confidence and a full belief in their ab
solute knowledge of what was and
what was not possible.”

The general secretary is Rev. Leighton
Williams, pastor of Amity church,
whose address is 312 West Fifty-fourth

moral and social betterment and a

The New York Journal opposed the
candidature of Father Heldman for
congress because he had to get the con
sent of his bishop before he could run
A correspondent of that paper reminds
it that “Before the congress of the
United States was heard of the priests
of the Catholic church were subject to
their bishops and bound by their or
ders.” The Journal then answered to
the point thus: “It is quite true that
before the congress of the United
States was heard of a priest of the
Roman Catholic church was hound by
certain rules. ' But it is also true
that ever since the congress of the
United States has existed a man to be
a member of it must be governed sole
ly by the constitution of the United
States and his own conscience. No
man is fit to sit in that congress who
requires the consent of another man to
his becoming a canditate.” All very
true, perhaps, but what about politi
cal bosses?
A correspondent answers in the Ex
aminer (Baptist, New York) the ques
tion. “What constitutes a church in
the Baptist denomination?” as follows,
in part: “The pastor, however
gifted and scholarly, is not the church.
He is only a member of It, selected
and set apart as a teacher and leader
in spiritual things, whose mission is to
labor for the upbuilding of the particu
lar church over which he presides. He
has no special legal authoilty over the
weakest and poorest member of the
church by virtue of his church rela
tions. It is the members as a whole
that constitute the church, and the
membership is confined to those who
are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ,
who are ‘bom again,' made ‘new
creatures' in him, have been baptized
on confession of their faith, and are
keeping his commandments and walk
ing in him.”
The Outlook, having recently pub
lished an editorial on “Unity in Wor
ship,” in the course of which it said
some very complimentary things of
the Protestant Episcopal church
liturgy, a correspondent wants the
editor to “explain why, believing as he
does, he is not an Episcopalian.” The
editor says in reply: “The distinctive
characteristic of the Eplscrpa! church
is not its ritual, but its form of gov
ernment. The bishops in the I,am
beth articles make acceptance of the
episcopate as essential, as acceptance
of the bibie, the creeds, or the sacra
ments, but they say nothing about
ritual. There are many who like
the ritual who do not like the episco
pate, and still more who can not as

Mr. Moody, having been taken to
task for inviting Prof. George Adam
a "higher crltie,” to deliver an
ad tires;' at the Northfleid meetings, has
replied as follows: "Destructive
theology on the one side and the no
less evil spirit of extreme intolerance
on the other side have wrought wide
dissension in many communities In
America. Instead of fighting error
by the emphasis of truth, there has
been too much splitting of hairs, and
only too often an unchristian spirit of
bitterness. This has frequently re
sulted in depleted churches, and has
opened the way for the entrance of still
greater errors. Under these condl-
Itions the question of the authorship of

become of less lnmvbdiate importance

as never before.”
According to th*~ Ccngrogationalist
(Boston), "many of the costliest
edifices in the land belong tb colleges
and universities. Millions of dollars
are asked for buildings and equip
ments, where only thousands used to
be expected. A large proportion of
those who go out from these Institu
tions probably never afterward will
ccupy such expensive houses as are
provided for them by private or public
benevolence during their student days.
Relatively, also, the cost to the stu
dents themselves of supplementing
what is thus furnished to them is much
increased. Yet where all are bene
ficiaries, distinctions between rich
and poor have grown to be marked in
some universities as in the outer
world. Young men and women are
theie est'ieated much less than form
erly according to their intellectual at
tainments and moral character, much
more according to the money they
spend, it is a question worthy of the
gravest consideration, whether lavish
gifts to institutions of learn
ing tend to accomplish the ends for
which those gifts are presumably made
—the cultivation of high types oi
Christian character.”
Commenting on an article in the
Presbyterian Banner 'by Dr. R. M.
Patterson, which says: “A liturgical
leaven Is working in our Presbyterian
church which contains the germ of
great trouble in the near future,” the
Christian Work (New York) remarks
as follows: "The indiscriminate use
of ‘liturgy’ and ‘ritualism’ as inter
changeable terms, after the fashion of
many writers, Dr. Patterson among
them, is confusing, and should be
avoided. The Scottish church is
liturgical; so is the Reformed church;
but neither is ritualistic. John Knox
favored a liturgy, and Calvin fur
nished the opening sentences in the
Episcopal prayer-book, and would not
have objected to a liturgy for the
Presbyterian church. The fact is,
many Presbyterian churches have be
come liturgical, as witnessed in the
use of responsive readings of the
Psalter, the systematic singing of the
‘Te Deum’ and the Glorias, together
with the prayer over the offertory, etc.
Unless all signs mislead, the Presby
terian church is certain to become
more liturgical than ever. The ‘great
trouble’ of which I)r. Patterson writes,
wo imagine, will not come to Presby
terians by the use of a liturgy, but
through the efforts of some Presby
rian advocates of the old constricted
methods to arrest this liturgical
movement by some prohibitory action
on the part of the general assembly.
Then the music will begin and the
‘great trouble’ cloud will appear above
the horizon. We have an Idea that
liturgical methods In the Presbyterian
church have come to stay, because the
people like them, and because they
supply many deficiencies —especially In
the sacred office of prayer, in which
people lake no audible part—met with
and realized In so many nonllturgical
Women, Boys, and Horses Carried
Through the Air Un •armed.
John R. Mustek of Kirksville,
Missouri, thus describes, in the Cen
tury, certain madcap pranks of a tor
nado which passed through that city
on April 27:
Many strange freaks were played by
the tornado. In a tree-top was found
a woman's hair, supposed to have been
blown from her head as she was car
ried through its branches, yet no per
son was found near it. A human scalp
was found three miles from the city
limits, under a bridge. Notes, letters
and papers were blown from the city
into lowa, and found ninety miles
away. One promissory note of four
hundred dollars was found In a field
near Grlnnell, lowa, nearly one hun
dred miles away, while clothing and
papers were scattered along the en
tire distance.
One woman was decapitated by ?
tin roof, and her child was killed near
her. Some persons who were out
side the rotating current were killed
or injured by flying timbers, which,
like bolts from the catapult of Jove,
flew with deadly force for a great
distance, while others In the very cen
ter of the storm escaped with little or
no injury.
Perhaps the most remarkable ex
periences were those of Miss Moore
house, Mrs. Webster, and her son.
The three were caught up in the storfn,
and were carried beyond the Catholic
church, nearly one-fourth of a mile,
and let down on the common so gent
ly that none were killed. Mrs. Web
ster had some slight cuts about the
head, her son had one arm fractured,
but Miss Moorehouse was uninjured.
“I was conscious all the time I wan
flying through the air,” Bald Miss
Moorehouse, “and It seemed a long
time. I seemed to be lifted up and
whirled round and round, going to a
great height, at one time far above
■the church steeples, and seemed fo be
carried a long distance. I prayed to
the Ix>rd to save me, for I believed he
could save me, even on the wings of
the tornado: and he did wonderfully
preserve my life. As I was going
through the air, being whirled .about
at the sport of the storm, I saw a
horse soaring and rotating about with
me. It was a white horse and had a
harness on. Fly the way It kicked and
struggled a l , it. was hurled about I
know It was alive. I prayed 'God that
the horse might not come in contact
wkn me, and it did not. I was merci
fully landed upon the earth unharmed,
saved by a miracle.”
Young Webster says he .saw the
horse in the air while he was being
borne along by the Btorrn. “At one
time it was directly over me, and I
was very much afraid l would come in
contact with its flying heels.” The
horse, it is said, was caught up and
carried one mile through the air, and,
according to the accounts of reputable
witnesses, at times was over two hun
dred feet high, passing over a church
steeple. Many who were not in the
storm say that they saw horses flying
in the wind. Beyond being well plas
tered with mud, the white horse was
uninjured by his aerial flight.
At 'ho time of the Taiplng rebellion
that is to say. In 1854 —a shrewd and
ambitious "house-boy," named Alnig,
employed by one of the foreign busi
ness houses of Shanghai, being fired
by the prospect of unlimited loot, or
ganized a very successful rebellion
against the imper.al authority. He
proclaimed himself General, and all of
his assistans officers of high degree;
and one night he took possession of the
walled Chinese city in the name of Tst
ping-wang. The capture was not with
out. bloodshed; a few' out of the multi
tude o'f Chinamen made some resist
ance, but they were promptly slain, and
their heads hung on hooks as orna
ments to the gate of entrance. The
capture, or rather change of ownership,
of the otiy was reported to the Emoer
or, who dispatched an army to recap
ture it In laying si&ge 'o the city the
army selected the site for its forts with
great judgment, for between the points
of the extreme ranges of the guns of
both sides there wms a safety zone about
half a mile wide, in which battles were
frequent and fierce-looking, with much
firing of guns and crackers, beating of
gongs, and a great noise of shouts. At
this time I was very a young and small
midshipman on the United State® cor
vette Plymouth, at anchor in the har
bor of Shanghai. I managed to see
more or less of wihat was going on,
and, among other things, one shot that
was more effective than the usual run.
There was a battle on. I hnd strolled
over to the front of the Taiplng troops,
where, resting on his gun, stood Col
onel Reynolds, familiarly known as
Pirate Reynolds, a burly English sol
dier of fortune, who, for a considera
tion, had joined Allng’s army to or
ganize and drill it. He ha<i a Minte
rifle, the first of the make I had ever
seen, and he was very proud of It.
After descanting on its merits, he
asked me if I should like to try a shot.
I said I should He pointed toward the
enemy, and said, “Do you see that chap
: with the red shirt —that fellow Jumping
up and down?” I could see him dis
tinctly. “Well, take a crack at him,
and if you hold a little high, you'll
fetch him." 1 recoiled at the offer,
hardly caring to commit a murder.
“Gimme the gun,” he said; “seeing you
are so danmed squeamish, I'll try him
myself;” and he did. He fired, and the
red-shrlted Chinaman fell dead, this
ended the battle; the Imperialists, who
had not dreamed of such heavy losses,
boat rapid retreat.—Harper’s Magazine.
Miss Daisy Dontz of Dentzville, N. J„
a suburb of Trenton, lias prolwfjly the
largest collection of col ns in New Jer
sey. Some of them are many hundred
years old, and they represent the cur
rencies of nearly every country in the
world. Some idea of the size of the
collection may be gathered from the
fact that the celling of Miss Dentz’s
boudoir is completely covered with
United States money, while t,he four
walls are hidden behind the coins of
Asiatic, European, African and South
American countries. There Is consid
erable history attached to this collec
tion, especially to the English coins,
which were found near Princeton in a
queer shaped hat by one of Miss
Dentz’s relatives while in search of
minerals. The hat is similar in shape
to those worn by the Hessian soldiers
during the revolution, and is still In

When temper or Injustice
Shall tempt naughtiness to bide.
When restlessness and longing
Bring the lambkin to the fold,
There is healing In the soft caress
And balm In story told.
—Lillian H. Picken.
