THE REPRODUCTION OF THE OLD ! DE WITT CLINTON DUE TO IT. * A Unique Bit of History Which Peals ; With the Ohl Antl-Ma»oory Feeling In X«« York Sfate Over Sixty Years Ago. A Clever Artist With Scissors. "The New York Central Railroad com pany's reproduction of the first railroad train and locomotive ever run in New York state, a most interesting and valu able exhibit at the Chicago fair," said an old resident of Albany, "causes me to Wonder how many of the officers of that company know that if the disappearance of Morgan from Batavia 65 yours ago had net been attributed to murderous machinations of the Masonic fraternity, which resulted iu the great anti-Masonic excitement tliat spread throughout the country and boeftmo a sensational polit ical factor, they would not have been able to make the reproduction, and tho appearance of that curious ritilifead train and engine would never have been known in accurate and pictorial representation. "It was years before the discovery and practica! introduction of that cjrudo pred ecessor of photography, live daguerreo type, when the pioneer railroad train in this state was run, and as the futuro im portance to history of fho appdhra that train never occurred to those inter ested in bringing it into existence the akill of no artist with his jiencil was brought into use to perpetuate it on paper. It hapjtened that a young man named Brown—William II. Brown of Philadelphia—was in Albany on the day the train was run, Ang. 0, 1 Bill, ainOind been in the place seveml days, i "He had a marvelous talent for cutting With a pair of scissors out of black paper lifelike profile portraits and accurate representations of buildings, machinery and even landscapes. "The remarkable part of this talent of bis was his power to make a perfectly exact portrait of persons days and even ■weeks after having seen them but once, sind tliat only casually on the street. "He had for some time made a good liv ing by the exercise of his peculiar art. Thaddens StevenH was at that time just beginntug to make a reputation in poli tics and had seized ujion the anti-Mnsonic idea for use in Pennsylvania, as it had been so successfully worked by Thurlow "Weed and his lieutenants in New York etato. The feeling was growing in Penn sylvania, and young Brown thought it would be a good stroke of business for him to go to Albany, have a look at Thnrlow Weed and others, snip their likeness out in silhouette, and besides getting a fee from thorn for the work duplicate the pictures for salo among the anti-Mnsonic enthusiasts iu Pennsyl vania and elsewhere. "He went to Albany early In August, 3831, and did a great deal more than get the portraits of Thurlow Weed. Ilia wonderful work took the town by storm, and he was kept busy from morning un til night cutting the silhouette likenesses of peoplo of all kinds, sexes aud nge. that (licked to his rooms. "His greatest artistic feut was tlio cut ting in one large picture of tho fufhour Burgess corps entire, with staff and baud in full parade, each mendiera portrait being of surprising accuracy. This pic ture is among tho most precious relics in the state library. I "And so it happened tliat this unique young artist was in Albany on the dai the quaint locomotivo De Witt Clinton, with its equally quaint coaches, was tobe run on its first trip over the Mohawk mid Hudson railroad. "He was one of tho passengers on the train, and when it returned to Albany lie cut with bis scissors an exact picture of tho locomotivo and two of the coaches, making the portrait of David Matthew, the engineer, and John T. Clark, the con ductor, on his seat on the outside of the front coach. "In that picture appear the likenesses of Thurlow Weed. cx-Governor Yates and other distinguished Albanians that day, but ueithcr Mr. Weed nor tlio ex-governor was on the train. Without a thought of tile future of tliat picture . • jib a valuable contribution to history (the artist cut those portraits merely of his skill in depicting a mb noo of au exerc ject from memory. Ho told mo *o him »olf 40 years afterward. "While Artist Brown was in Albany ho concluded to go to Boston and Hart ford to make some portraits and other cuttings with his marvelous scissors. While in Hartford lie showed tho picture he had made of the railroad train and locomotive to a member of the Connecti cut Historical society, who at once saw what a treasure it must necessarily come, and the artist presented it to society, where it is today a relic beyond price. "Some 30 yenre after cutting that ture Brown became interested in railroad business himself, having long ceased to exercise his artistic skill fessionally, uud one day, having almost forgotten the Albany picture, bo in a newspaper an account of a litho graph tliat had jnst been published from a photograph of the silhouette ture he had presented to the Connecticut Historical society. "He Bent to the publisher of the litho graph ami procured a copy of it and rejoiced to see an exact reproduction his scissors cutting of more than 30 years before. But the joy he felt over a of the picture was scarcely as great the inscription beneath it gave him. "The date of the running of the was given as some time iu 1832, name of the locomotive being the Bull instead of the De Witt Clinton the name of the engineer John Hampson Instead of David Matthew. "Brown at once set about the tusk ~ HHMli tin 7 the lithograph publishers' tory, a task at which he worked more than 30 years, for the lithograph copy of his picture, with its incorrect <}■ Inscription, had been widely circulated."

During ; seeou A't ly cold weather in C frontier army poxt tho commanding officer issued an order to have limited rations of whisky issued to his men. All went well until ono day a soldier, an Irish-American, was arrested and placed in tho guardhouse for intoxica tion. Tho quantity of whisky allotted to each man was insufficient to produce such a remits and a brief investigation which followed developed the fact that the soldier had stolen tho rations of u cothrade. In course of time the matter was brought to tho attention of tho com manding officer, und the private was or dered before him for trial upon the hei nous charge of stealing. l'at was very much downcast when he appeared before the officer, but was still in possession of his faculties and native wit. Ho denied having stolen the vsiiis ky. but frankly admitted drinking the doublo allowance und his subsequent drunkenness. "No, sur," be said, when asked to ex plain further, "sliuro I'm not afther stealin tho drink. It was this way, stir. You see, ho asked me to get his rations, and I had mo own requisition an only wan bottle. Both rations were poured in the wan bo HU- - "Now, sur, relave it to yer honor, wiiat was I to do?

"The incident often illustrated iu plays of a man carrying off a redhot stove has no basic truth," said Hal man Cannody. "Still the idea seems so pre posterous that i>eoplo never fail to laugh at the incident when placed liefore them on tire stage. Tho nearest theft that 1 ever knew to parallel it occurred not so many years ago when an habitual crim inal in New York city was given six months iu the penitentiary for stealing a tinner's Btove. The evidence proved that the criminal bad a record which included everything from the theft of a paper of pins and a wagon wheel down to a water gauge of a steam engine and the stovo in question. "The turner's stove was shown in court. It was a very old fashioned, largo and nngainly looking affair, which one might imagine would be tlio last thing that would attract tlio attention of even a chronic burglar. The top was cylindrical and perfectly open for the purposo of draft. To this top was attached the handle. Now, tho stovo had a good fire in it and had been set out ou tho pave ment to obtain extra flame. Tlio thief must have found it a very hot object to handle, nnd yet ho ran with it a dozen blocks beforo he was caught and arrest ed."—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. The Club of tho Futuro. A growing opinion ia that tho coming club will be tho mixed one, where men aud women will study together the ques tions tliat present themselves and work out together tho problems of tho day. And this, it is asserted, will not bo a consolidation of tlio distinctively wom en'« and men's clubs as they now exist, but a merging of the boat elements of each into fresh organizations. Following this mixed club sentiment it is not surprising to find Mr. Stead in a London journal advocating "co-op erative homes for tho unmarried." By this he means that the co-operative homes for sifastaxs and those for bache lors should oouibiiv its into their honsekeeping a sort of idealized arrangomen boarding house, where Mrs, Grundy would be apiKiasisl with "an experienced lady housekeeper* and where companiee of detached*' or unattached men and women could find congenial acquaint ance.

Arbitration In Dig Affairs. There is a great deal of carelessness In certain popular demanda for referring questions between nations to arbitration. We all know what urbitftetion is in lmsi uess. It is u very convenient way of ad justing certaii» questions which arise be tween two friends, each of whom wants to do what is right, but who take differ ent points of view of tile same subject. Each of them "chooses a mau," os t4io old New England phrase has it. These two "men" choose a third man. All parties meet together and tulk over tlio matter, and the court thus made deckles. But for practical purposes we do not compel every person who lias a question arising with another jierson to creuto a court which is to try that question. If a policeman catches a pickpocket in the street» he does not appoint one person to try the pickpocket und ask the pickpocket to nppoint another, wliilo these two shall appoint a third. If Mr. Choeflffile in London is not satisfied with the account which Mr. QoodchHd in Kansas City sends him, if Mr. Goodchild cannot umke Mr. Oheeryblo understand that account, they do not appoint a court which shall dctcrinino Low much Is due and how much is not due. Thero is a court ex isting to which tlmt question can be re ferred and there nro processes perfectly understood by which that court can de cide it. This is a fair enough illustration of tho necessity which now exists that the great nations of the world shall liavo a perma nent tribunal, before which shall lie brought the important questions which must arise in tho affairs of nations with each other. It is to lm a pormanont tri bunal. Thero is not to bo ono tribunal about seals and another tribunal about boundaries and another about extradi tion. There is to be a tribunal which shall gradually gain the confidence of tho wliolo world, and which shall decide these questions which luivo been left hitherto to a vague public opinion and to wlmt is called the arbitration of war. Clearly wo aro approaching nearer aud nearer the creation of Buch a tribunal. The greatest success was achieved when lu 1789 13 different nations, hero on tho coast of tho Atlantic, united to gethnr and established tho supreme court of tho United States. Tho thing lias worked so perfectly und simply ever since that wo have many readers to whom it has never occurred that thero wore might have boon wars between Massachusetts and New York, or war Iretwecu Missouri and Iowa, as bitter and severe as half the wars of the middle ages in Europe were. Thero might have boon suoh wars if it had not been that tho supremo court of the United States has determined at least a hundred ques tions arising between different proud and independent states and lias so deter mined them that each of tho states has acquiesced in the decision. Nay, it has so determined them that half tho citizens of those stales did not know that any suqli questions existed. Between my own state of Massachusetts und tho state of Rhode Island there was a question about boundaries some 40 or 50 years ago which was more important than many of tho questions which liavqthrown European states into war with each other. The su pretno court of tho United States deter mined the question, and I do not lielieve that half tho people now living in Mas sachusetts who wero living then ever knew that there was any such question at issue. Tho six great powers of tho world nro tho powers who should agroo on such a high court of judicature, to exist as a permanent tribunal. It would lio easy to arrange sotno system by which its judges should ho appointed. Perhaps a good system would lie such us is indi cated in the custom which lias been spoken of above. Each of the six nations might name one of theso judges, and tho six judges might nominate six other judges, to lw approved by a majority of tlio high powers forming tho court. At first tho now court would liavo nothing to do. Everybody would be shy of it, but it would exist. It would con sist of men of the very highest rank who had distinguished themselves before the world by their equity and wisdom. At Amt the court would meet simply for its own organization and to await tho reference to it of questions nrising between great nations. In this period of leisure theso jurists might well bo en gaged in digesting tho international law of the world as it exists now aud pub lishing from time to time their digest. They might determine certain principles on which they would rely in the judg ments which should eventually be brought before them. Beforo long, how ever, some real question would bo sub mitted to them. Thero would uriso a question whether the San Carlos river was a dirty brook running from tho northwest to tho southeast, or another dirty brook running from the southwest to the northeast. As things stand now. two armies have to be called out to fight about tho proper definition of some old treaty, and a thousand good fellows have to lie killed before wo can determine which of two dirty brooks is the San Carlos.—Edward Everett Halo in New York Recorder. in The hri-.t Teat.

Rotiert Stock, formerly of the Morning News. lee* loen lime-keeper of Street aud Sewer DepartioeuL mu it, has re Predicting Earthquakes. Professor Falb of Vienna has attained some noWHety from the fact that he predicted tho coining of both series of earthquake shocks from winch tiio island of Zante has recently suffered. Earthquake prognostications have been recorded as coming true in not a few in stances, but thero is reason to believe that the fulfillment of the prophecies was purely accidental. Seismologists are not likely to give Professor Falb irtuch credit for prescience. They will say ho merely happened to foretell what was coming. We may, to bo snro, predict earth quakes in some regions with a good deni of confidence that tho prognostication will come true. If wo predict, for in stance, that an earthquake or earth tremors will ho felt in Japan tomorrow, the chances nro that the prediction will como true, for one or two earth move ments on nn nverago are felt in that country every day, but we cannot tell exactly where théy will occur or what degree of violenco they will exhibit. Tho greatest boon which could be con ferred upon regions that are subject to violent earthquake shocks would he tho discovery of sonio means of foretelling the coming of theso terrible calamities. For years seismologists have given their most earnest attention to this problem, but it cannot bo sa^d that they have made much progress, f Milne says that ho nnd his assistants luivo spent years in observing tlio earth quake phenomena of Japan, but they have never yet succeeded in foretelling tho coming of an earthquako.—New York Sun. rofessor John Tlio Humming of Telegraph Mir, 1 .. You have all hoard the humming and singing of telegraph and telephone wires us you passed the poles along tho streets. No doubt you have concluded that it is caused by the action of the wind on tlio wires and given it no further thought. But it is not tmo that tire singing is caused by tho wind, and if you are at all Observing you will notice that often tho humming sound is to bo heard cold win ter mornings when tlio smoke from chim neys goes straight up until ft is lost in the clouds, nnd when the frost on tho wires is as fuzzy and thick as a roll of chenilla frin go. Tho wind has nothing to do with tho sound, nnd according to an Austrian scientist tho vibrations are duo to the changes of atmospheric temperature and especially through tho action of cold, as a lowering of temperature in duces a shortening of tlio wires extend ing over the whole of the conductor. A considerable amount of friction is pro duced on tlio supporting bells, thus in ducing soumis both in the wires und tlio poles.

A considerable amount of anxiety has recently been caused, especially among corporations controlling waterworks, by the discovery that the passage of electric cars lias a tendency to seriously injure tho water pipes of a city by causing elec trolysis. At a meeting of a waterworks association un electrical engineer stated that iu soino cases under his observation lead pijie had entirely disappeared by tlio action of the electric current, and a like result bad attended (|ii- use of iron, gal vanized iron, brass and "rustless" pipes. Tire corrosive action takes place \Ylu re the current leaves the pipe and not where it enters it, and the phenomena mentioned were undoubtedly owing to tho operation of electric care. It is sat isfactory to know that should tho elec trolysis of w ter pipes become so serious a question as it is thought by some may, a certain remedy, although would increase the cost of water instal lations, would be the insulation of the conduits.—Chicago Herald.
