THREE CLOSE CALLS. NARROW ESCAPES HAD BY WORKMEN IN A PULP MILL. One of Them Crushed to n Shapeless Mass Between Iron Hollers —Another Whirled Around on a Belt—Thrilling; F.xperlenro With a Log; Jam. "I never hear of persons narrowly es caping death or surviving extraordinary Injuries," said the New York represen tative of a big pulp mill company, "that tdo not think of some remarkable in stances of the kind that have occurred at One of our mills in the northern part of this state. On one occasion a workman named Wolf was engaged in cleaning a machine used at a certain stage in tho process of pulp manufacture. Tho prin cipal feature of this machine was two Very heavy iron rollers —one abovo tho Other. When in operation, tho upper roller was pressed closely down on the lower one, and they revolved in opposite directions. To clean these rollers the up per one was raised seven or eight inches, the machine of course being at rest. "In the course of his work Wolf, who Waa a young (Terman. thrust his head »nd shoulders between the rollers to see better to clean the lower roller. While he was in that position some careless person turned on the water power. The rollers started at once, and before the alarm could be given and the water turned off Wolf was drawn clear through between the rollers and dropjied on the ether side, as much like pulp, so far as appearances went, as anything could be. I happened to be in that part of the mill at the time and saw the frightful mishap. "I ran to where the limp form of tho Workman lay and dispatched a messen ger at once for a doctor, merely as a matter of form, however, for that any thing could be done for the shapeless mass of humanity never entered my mind. It was impossible to lift the body. We shuffled it on to a blanket aud car ried it to the unfortunate man's home. I noticed that, although there was not the slightest evidence of consciousness, Wolf was still breathing and that bis heart was beating. When the doctor came, he declared that from the shoul ders down there was positively not a single whole bone left in Wolf's body. He said there was not one chance in ten thousand of the man living. "'lt would take 10 doctors a week to set his bones,' he said. "He incased the body in plaster from the neck down, and when he came next day was amazed to find that Wolf was Still alive and had regained conscious ness. Wolf lay incased in plaster for Several weeks. His bones knit and grew together again, but in such a way that when he was able to get around he was covered with knobs and ridges and queer corners and angles from head to feet. But he was alive. He was our night watchman for 10 years after that and is alive today. "Another time a workman-in a dif ferent part of the mill named Sanneman was caught iv a big belt by a felt apron he wore, and before the works could be stopped he was whirled seven times around the pulleys, striking the ceiling with tremendous force each time. He was taken up for dead. I examined him t before the doctor came, and there wasn't even the sign of an abrasion or mark on his body. Ten minutes later, when the doctor came, he was as black as coal all over. There wasn't a spot on him that was not discolored. The doctor exam ined the man carefully, and to his amazement found that there was not a bone broken anywhere about him. His injuries were so slight that he was ut work again within two days. Yet he had passed seven times through a space between tbe pulley and the beam not over seven inches wide. "Once tbe dam of one of our mills bo came ho dogged with logs that the)- in terfered with the water power. It was necessary to release the jam or shut down the mill. The work would necessarily endanger the lives and limbs of all who engaged in it, and volunteers were asked for, handsome extra pay being offered. Plenty of men wore ready to take the risks, among them Put O'Brien, an Irish man, 61 years old. He insisted on being one of the gang and joined it against the protest, of the superintendent, "Tho work of releasing tho log jam went all right until the key log t hat held the main jam was to be removed. There lay the danger. The key was removed, and the men made it wild duah to escape the rash, Tbey all got out of the way but four, among them the old Irishman, Pat O'Brien. Those four were caught among the logs and went, over the falls, a sheer descent of B."> feet. Men and logs went ever together, and everybody supposed that the men would be ground to atoms. But a most astonishing thing happened. In falling a number of logs fell on end In a group, their upper ends toppling to gether, forming an almost perfect tent, or peaked hut, with the down stream sido open. The men had escaped injury, not only from the logs in the faU, but from the tremendous plunge Itself, and it was as they landed in the water below thai the tent of logs formed with them beneath its shelter. This saved them from being drowned by the water that plunged down from the great height. "There was constant danger of the shelter of logs being forced from Us lodgment by the pressure of water. In view of the latter danger, when It came to rescuing them, the three yonng men of the party urged old Pat O'Brien to be hauled up first. Ho obstinately refused to be hauled up until his companions had been rescued, when he took his chance and was landed safely above. He had scarcely been lifted above tho shelter of the logs when it gave way, and the logs went crashing and thundering on down the stream. I have heard of Wonderful escapes of death, but never anything so wonderful as that."—New York Sun.

These Are Innumerable aad Form a Ca rious Study. 1 It is interesting to noto that tho tem perature at which a liquid boils is tho same as that at which its vapor is con densed, precisely as the temperature at which water freer.es is tho samo as that at which ice melts. It may seem superfluous to observe that there are more boiling points than J the boiling point of water. If it were | not so, all bodies would be in tho solid, i liquid or gaseous stale together, and life 1 would be impossible. It is partly by ; giving every substance its own boiling i point, or rather its own set of boiling points —for the fixed temperature, even : for the same substance, is a fallacy— ; that nature has rendeied our physical environment suitable to our needs. What is generally understood by the boiling point of water ia a temperaturo i of 212 degrees on the Fahrenheit ther mometric scale, but Alpine climbers know well that, on a high mountain, water boils at a very much lower tem perature —ou the summit of Mont Blano ut IS4 degrees. The reason is that, at theso altitudes, the pressure of the at mosphere is very much reduced, since the density of the air decreases with the distance above the earth's surface, and the water expands at a correspondingly lower temperature, passing more read ily into tho vaporous condition, in which the volume of a given mass of any sub stance is nlways far greater than that of the same mass when liquid. Tho boiling point of liquid is, therefore, . seen to depend not only ou temperature, , but also on pressure, and the boiling point of water at 212 degrees corre sponds to what is called "a pressure of ! one atmosphere." approximatply 15 pounds to the square inch, or tho pres sure capable of supporting the column of mercury in a mercurial barometer at a height of 29.9 inchos. This is tho average pressure of the atmosphere at the sea level, and if it is reduced the boiling point is lowered, while if it is increased tho boiling point is raised. A very curious result is arrived at if wo place a vessel of water in tho re ceiver of an airpump and reduce the ; pressure to . 008 of an atmosphere, for ! then tho water Ixiils at 82 degrees—that 1 is, at its freezing point under ordinary ' pressure. Sinco it is vow possible to I produce an almost perfect vacuum. ! water may be boiled at still lower tem peratures. All liquids do not boil at tho same temperature. Thus, while water under a pressure of one atmosphere boils at 212 degrees, alcohol, which passes more readily into the state of vapor, boils at 172*3 degrees and ether at 93.8 de grees, which is below tho normal tem perature of the body. Since increase of pressure retards the 1 vaporization of a liquid, it of course \ facilitates the liquefaction of a gas by ! assisting the process of contraction. Consequently many gases are capable of being liquefied by pressure alone, though only when thty are below what is called their critical temperature (different for every different gas), above which cold as well as pressure becomes necessary. Oxygen, hj drogen and nitro gen are the most remarkable examples of gase6 having low critical tempera tures, and it is only recently that their ; liquefaction has been accomplished at I all. They were long thought to be ' "permanent gases." but it is now known that all gases arc- liquefiable. The boiling points of oxygen and ni trogen are respectively .375.8 degrees and 356 degrees F. below the freez ing point of wafer, and therefore these are the''highest' temperatures at which they can . exist as liquids. To produce these extremely low tempera tures it is* necessary to employ great pressure along with freezing mixtures. The ii lost remarkable liquefaction which has yet been accomplished is that of ' air. It was supposed that, the oxygen . and nitrogen having different boiling i points, they would liqnefy separately, j This is not ihe case ;'the mixture lique- I fies as air and presents the appearance f of water, but on being again evaporated i tho nitrogen evaporates tirst and the ox ; ygen afterward. This is a puzzle in ; physics which will doubtless be cx i plained ere long.—Good Words. sn • \ lenna. Vienna is of nearly circular form, be -1 ing 12 miles in circumference.

Rli Slse, flVljhl, Strength anil Appear tnrr From an Kxpert's Calculation. "Tho average man" ia ;i phrase fre quently employed, but th" conception of ■which it is the symbol is apt to be ex tremely shadowy. It lias remained for Dr. Sargent of Cambridge to endow the conception with concrete form. With extraordinary industry he has applied himself to measuring chests and necks and hips by the thousands, and bic eps and calves by the tens of thousands. lie has calculated tho strength, expressed in foot pounds, of unnumbered foreurms and backs, 'i'he results of his labor* con sist of two nude figures modeled in clay. The first figure is the average, or "composite," of more than 5,000 Harvard men at the age of 21. This type is 5 feet 8 inches in height. He weighs 138 pounds. He has a lung capacity of 240 inches. His breadth of shoulders is 17 inches. His girth of natural chest is 38.8 iifthes; of inflated chest 86.3. His stretch of arms is 70.02 inches, which is 2.2 inches greater than his height. Thus one idol after another is smashed with the hammer of cold fact, for the rigid law of ancient art was that the stretch of arms should always exactly equal the height. The girth of the type's head is 22.3 inches, of his hips 35.1 inches. Tho strength of his forearm is 110 pounds, and of his back 308 pounds. Standing square ly, clean limbed, strong necked, he looks rather like a runner than a rower, but there is nothing sordid, nothing warped, nothing to indicate the deterioration of a civilization of too luaivy wheels, the stnnting and abnormal, one sided devel opment due to factory or city life. In considering the other figure reluc tant gallantry must give place to verac ity, and it must be admitted that the man is the liner figure of the two. The face of the averago college girl, like that of the other figure, is a "composite" one, aud tho best that can be said of it is that it is depressingly solemn iv expression. The type is 5 feet 5 inches tall. She weighs 115 pounds. Her breadth of shoulder is 17 inches. The girth of her natural chest is 30.5 inches. She can ex pand that about two inches. Her girth of hips is 35.4 inches. Her girth of head is 21.5 inches. Her stretch of arms is G3.5 inches. As the college girl is too sensible to constrict her waist to any considerable degree, so she is wise enough 1 o give her feet plenty of freedom. The type's foot is 0J inches long. Her waist is 24 inches in circumference. Her legs are not well developed. Her girth of calf is only 13± inches. In truth the figure has more fragility than that of her counterpart, without a corresponding gain in grace. It is when he finishes the results of his observations as to temperument, how ever, that Dr. Sargent approaches most closely to dangerous ground, lor he de clares that the typical college girl stu dent is distinctly nervo-bilious. This seems like a maliciously devised scheme on the part of the doctor to forestall crit icism from the girls. The shrewd, scientific expert has doubtless conceived the notion of put ting their very criticisms in evidence to prove hiß sweeping assertion. He will scarcely succeed, however, In propitiat ing the ladies by tbe deprecatory re mark that his lay figure is not that of an 80 or 90 per cent girl; that it represents merely 50 per cent of their good points, and is halfway from the best to the worst. —Philadelphia Record. Protecting; Vegetables In Winter. It does not seem to be generally known that light iv the winter time is the chief agent in the destruction of vegetables otherwise hardy, and especially light shining brightly on the plant when frozen. A cabbage or turnip that is ex posed to the light rots readily, but will keep perfectly sound if but slightly cov ered with earth. This principle should bo remembered when collecting vegetables together in large masses for protection. It is often customary to cover such sets of vegetables with some light ma terial, such as leaves, hay or straw, the result of which generally is simply to form a harbor for mice, which are much more destructive than tho frost itself. Water has. of course, to be excluded, aud if the vegetable plants are set close ly together and covered with boards to keep out the rain, it is generally all that is required. Water must be excluded, or else rotting may result. For this pur pose it is good practice to invert vege tables. The cabbage especially must re ceive this attention. They are almost always inverted when placed together under boards or covers for protection, and, in fact, where no covering at all is used they will keep perfectly well when | inverted. —Meehftn S Monthly.
