HER SICK BROTHER JOE. A Doitoo GIiTa Inimitable Take OOT of a l)Uoontrntel Young Invalid. l'.o-ton Globe.) It Is one of the things about men, you never can find them where you left them, and if 1 left .!oe a mild usa May morn ing, as you might say, I found him like a Dakota Mi.ariL lie commenced with hi breakfast by saying ho wouldn't eat it. and wanted to know why in Jerusalem the cook couldn't bo taught to cook like some thing. Then he sent way down town for some mutton cutlets with mushrooms, and they were Iho nastiest looking things, and if wc had cooked them .Joe would have called them all .sor of names. Then said the hoiii-e smeliedso of cook ing it made him sick; and he said some one had carried oil' his morning pa; er, an'l after ho had hunted all around, and I'd sent the second girl out after one, he found he was sitting on it Then every girl that entered the house afterward he insisted upon it nai laugh ing at him about it, and he wouldn't let them come to his room at all, for he said they were -'ill "female blabs. :' All the boys that canio in ho called "cheap dudos" a.d "ninny-hammers." and ma and I couldn't sneak out loud be cause it rapped him so. If we whispered he paid that wo were talking about him, and if we didn't speak at all ho said that the house was like a tomb, and ho insisted on taking double the quantity of medicine the doctor left. bo he could get out twice aj quick, I suppose. Then he made both the girls mad mak ing remarks about them in a loud tone of voice, and he confused mo so that I got all the liniment upon his tne; and I sup pose, of course, I did hurt him for he got up quick, and then sat down again so ouick ho tore my Arutene tidy all to pieces. Then he said he'd like mo a good deal better if I were out in the hall, and 1 just went out and sat down by the window s dc ected, till 1 saw ono of Joe's friends oing by a regular old fuss, just as he is and I ran down to the door and begged him to come in. I ran him right up stairs, and in five minutes you actually would have thought Joe was purring, he was so happy; and I just listened to see what could satisfy a man. and ail I could hear was. "Xcw York I enttal, " "Pacific Mail, ' "Margin, " "Loan." "l'er C'eut.," "Daisy." "r'ine Form," "Dry Mouopole, " and lots of other stuff, and I don't see that men talk any more sensible than girls, if that is the way they go on. IWatth of Co4t-M!nrs. A great variety of industrial employ ments are dacctly and largely productive of pu.monary disease, notably among stoue cu.ters, steel grinders, iron miners, etc. Taking puiuiouar consumption as a test '.isea.se of tne hurtful ehe-cts of inh.d ing me'.alic dust, there is a mortality of ii'o in eery n.0 6ick needle makers, di minishing to 10 in every lull sick bras - workers. Mineral dust causes a maximum death-rate from con sumption rf 10 per cent, of the total nioria ity among griuditoue makers, ani mal dust causes 4' per cent., and dust from poisouous meta s ; j er cent, of such mortality.respectively.iu the workers exposed of those exposed to vegetable dust, v.0 out of every 100 deaths among the cotton, flax and hemp dressers are duo tt) consumption, while among co.il miners onlv a fraction of one in the luu. deaths is due to this cause. . iru- - Jieccnt investigatim;- ,. , that consume: show not only minin- "" Stl"11 ' nt caused by coal- A-., out that this is the healthiest of industrial employments. Looking to the longevity, high standard of health, and low death rate of coal miners, and to their remarkable freedom from pulmonary dis ease, there would seem to be some special protective feature in coal-mining opera tions not shared by the rest of the dusty trades. It is surmised that this may bo duo to the antiseptic properties of the car bon constantly inhaled. Tree as a Protection from Lightning. fCfiieafro Times. The electricians of the Old World are among the latest strong advocates of em ploying trees as protection from light ning. Investigation leads them to con clude that the greatest protection a build- !ing can have is to have tall trees near by. 'The branches are so many points con ducting the electricity by the trunk to the ground. As to what particular trees are tho best for this purpose, there is some question, but all agree that tall growers are the most desirable; also that those with great branches are letter than such as have spreading ones. Perhaps all tall-growing kinds, like oak, poplar, hickory, horse chestnut, e'.m, piuo or spruce, are of nearly equal vahia In planning to protect buildings a distance of lilty feet away would be proper. To have the trees closer there would be danger in case of a stroke of lightning that tha iluid would follow the ground to tho building. A small pond between the tree and the building would render the protection about complete. A substitute for Coat. (nnhutetphiii Record. Tho Russian oil field promises to be much more oxtensivo than ours, and the supply more enduring than that de rived from tho wel's in this country. Russian oil, at tho wells, is worth about 18 cents j er barrel, and yields under ordinary refining processes only about JO percent, of illuminating oil. iut the heavy, non-explosive, lubricating oil that remains after tho process of distil lation is perhaps tho cheapest and best fuel in the world. Tho steam cars and steamships of southern Ku.sia use it ex clusively, and it is finding its way into uso in the steam cra'.'t of other countries going and coming from ports in tho Jllack sea and the Mediterranean. It is cheaper than coal, it does r.ot occupy ouo-ufth of tho room, and will soon be esteemed a necessity for steamers mac ing long voyages, which are obliged to carry so much coal they have hub room for other freight. lU'tnarkahln F or itmt lori of llocTi. ;Pa't LVe Letter.l In Prinze canyon, as you ascend the Wasatch, there is a remarkable for mation of rock called Castle ate.
