Strange as it may seem, Uncle Sam does not make use of the sun for reck oning time, but he turns his attention to some of the regular steady going stars, or "fixed stars," as they are called. Every clear night an astrono mer with a big telescope looks at cer tain of these stars and makes his cal culations, from which he can tell just when the sun would cross the seventy fifth meridian. One of the great clocks in the observatory is called the trans mitter, because It transmits or sends out the signal that keeps standard time. This clock is set and regulated by the star time, and then every day at three minutes and fifteen seconds before 12 a switch is turhed on, and the beats of the pendulum of this clock are sent by electricity over the wires to the telegraph offices in Washington and New York. When the telegraph oper ators hear this sound on their instru ments, they know that the noon signal is about to be sent out, and they at once begin to connect the telegraph wires with other towns and cities until in a minute or two the "tick, t-ck" of the clock at Washington is heard In hundreds of telegraph offices. The beats stop at ten seconds before 12, as a notice that the next "tick" will be the noon signal and so as to give the operators time to connect taeir wires with the standard time balls and clocks. There are time balls in a great many cities-usually op top of some promi nent building, where they ca-n easily be seen. The one at Washington is on the roof of the state, war and navy depart ment building, at the top of a high pole, ready to drop the instant the signal comes over the wire. In the govern ment offices at Washington and in many places in other cities there are large clocks connected with the ob servatory by electricity. These are so arranged that when the 12 o'clock sig nal is flashed over the wires the hands of each one of these clocks spring to 12, no matter what time the clock may show. In this way hundreds of clocks are set to the correct time each day. Well, the moment the sun is supposed to cross the seventy-fifth meridian the telegraph instruments give a single tick, the time balls drop, the clocks be gin to strike and everybody in the Dis trict knows It is 12 o'clock.-St. Nicho las. 1 MADE TO STAND PULLING. The Great Tensile Strength of the Government's Paper money. "The way some cashiers pay out small bills in exchange for large ones must make other men as tired as it wearies me," remarked an observing business man to another Washing tonian as they watched the cashier of a fashionable uptown cafe pull at and strip the ones and twos in exchange for a ten as though he were pulling a piece of molasses candy over a hook and hated to let go. "It does," acquiesced his friend, who happened to be a United States treas ury expert. "The way some cashiers jerk, snap and pull at bills as they pay them out is' utterly aberd. The old adage about pinching a silver dollar until the eagle screams pales before the way the up to date flip cashier lerks the long green he handles. "In this connection I will give you a fact that is not generally kneewn, and that is the weight a new treasury sin gle note, and four notes in a sheet, will sustain without breaking. The figures may be accepted as official and ac curate. "A single treasury note measures 3% inches wide by 7%A inches long and will suspend 41 pounds lengthwise and 91 pounds crosswise. Notes are printed four to a sheet. A sheet will suspend 108 pounds lengthwise and 177 pounds crosswise. - "The remarkable strength of a Unit ed States treasury note may thus be seen at a glance, and I venture to say that not one person in a million would slave guessed the great tenacity of the paper which, when properly printed and stamped, becomes good money." The cashier had Interestedly listened to the treasury expert's explanation of the weight sustaining and necessarily resisting power of wear and tear of our paper money, and then he said: "You see, It is this way: Bills slick together, see, and we cashiers have to make up any shortage out of our own pockets, and that's one reason why we snap and jerk the bills so hard, so we will not pay out two for one, as might be done. Again, a two dollar bill is fre quently mistaken for 'a five, and vice versa, and by counting out our money as If it were drons of our lifeblood we are less liable to pass out one for the other."-Washington Star. The Servant Problem Not New. Students of household management will learn with satisfaction that in 15668 many of the evils now to be complained of were distinctly recognized. Some of the more curious fines which were im posed by a country gentieman upon of fending servants were a penny for leav ing a door open, missing prayers, leav ing beds unmade after S (presumably a. in.), and cooks could only have fol lowers at the rate of a penny fine for each one. A curious custom seems to have then existea that entree to the' house was, denied during the family meals, and as the fine for allowing a breach of this custom was heavy it may be presumed that the sin was esteemed great. Waspes Mrethod of Attack. Belt in his "Naturalist In Nicaragua" drws attention to the methods of at tack used by different species of wasps. One, accustomed to animals and not to man, takes care to crawl down the out standing hairs to the skin before in serting its sting, while others which live in the midst of human dwellings fly straight at a man's face. The first, species, true to inherited instinct, when it attacks unfamiliar human beings at-' taches :tself to their hair or their beards. But there must have been a time when the second species discov ered that the face was the vulnerable part, and the discovery was the out come of the action of brain. Larger Quantities.

Why They Are Poor Places to Get Loans on Stolen Watches. Of watches alone there are received here and at the twenty-two branch of fices from a thousand to twelve hun dred a day, about 350,000 In a year, the average loan on a watch being 30 or 40 francs. The official assured me that in this great number of watches scarce ly one in a thousand has been stolen, the fact being that people who have come dishonestly by watches or other property fight shy of the mont de piete. The reason of this was presently made plain as we watched the formalities of C record, and I realized how difficult it would be for any one to do business hpre under a concealed identity. Every client receiving a loan greater than 15 francs must produce some official docu ment-an Insurance policy, a citizen's voting card, a permit to carry arms or a rent receipt bearing his signature and throwing light upon his station in life. For loans under 15 francs the client is simply required to show an envelope through the mails to his address. All these facts, with various others, are duly inscribed upon huge record sheets, so that whoever deals with the mont de plete exposes himself to the scru tiny that must be ungrateful to folks of shady antecedents. Indeed, certain persons make this a grievance against the mont de piete and declare the Paris system an Impertinent intrusion upon a client's privacy, which would seem a point badly taken If (he client is an honest man. - Cleveland Moffett on Paris Pawnshops in Century. Cards Disclose the Mian. "I wish I had not played bridge with Mr. X., " said a girl recently. "I thought him so nice before, and now my liking for him has quite gone. He was so keen about trifles, insisted upon every forfeit, questioned the store and seem ed so annoyed when he lost, and yet the stakes were very small, and he was only out a few dollars; so, 9f course, it was not the money. It must have been the disposition of the man coming o-it under provocation, and the test did not show him up to advantage. Now, Mr. Z., the other man at the ta ble, was so good natured and such a gentleman in his play that I quite like him, although I never thought him at tractive before." All games of competition may be said to assay certain characteristics, but the most crucial test seems to be card playing, and bridge is responsible for many a coolness resulting from self betrayal at the green table.-New York Tribune. The Badger as a Fireman A badger which had made its home among the granite cliffs dealt with the fire god with sagacity and skill, says i Nature. A friend, while painting a sea 4 piece, discovered a badger's lair and 4 thought to play the animal a practical I joke. Gathering together a bundle of gass and weeds, he placed it inside the I mouth of the hole and, igniting it with a match, waited for the ignominious < flight of the astonished householder. But Master Badger was a resourceful1 animal and not disposed to be made a butt of practical jokers. He came up from the depths of his hole as soon as 4 the penetrating -smoke told him that there was a gre on the premises and 4 deliberately scratched earth on the < burning grass with his strong claws until all danger was past No human being could have grasped the situation more quickly or displayed greater. skill in dealing with ani unfamiliar event akson's Statue on the Constitution.] In 1333 Commodore Elliott ordered a figure of General Jackson to be carvedi to take the place of a billet head which the United States frigate Constitution had carried through the war of 1312. It was placed on the bow of the frigate In June, 1834, when she left the dry- 1 dock in Charlestown navy yard. The excitement among the political enemies< of Jackson in Boston was intense. A . meeting was called in Faneuil hall which, however, did not take place-i and anonymous letter writers threaten ed the life of the commodore unless the statue was removed. On the night of the 2d of July, 1834, in the midst of a, terrific thunderstorm, Samuel P. Dew y, a young man of twenty-eight, rowed 1 out to the vessel and managed to. saw off the head of the statue and carry it away. The head was replaced a month later in N~ew York, and the figure re maIned there until 1874. It now occu-. pesa place in the grounds of the~avat school at Annapolis. Swelling Her Income. A good story is told of a man 'who one day told his wife that he would give her all the silver pieces she found in his purse or pockets which were coined the year she was born. As a result the lady in due course of time had quite an amount of silver on band-so much, in fact, that she went to the bank and deposited it in her name. Then, speaking to the cashier, the lady said: "My husband tells me you are going to pay him some money to day. Will you please pay him in this silver I have just deposited? I should be so much obliged to you If you would." Of course the cashier quickly replied that he would be happy to please her, As a result the la.dy has still more birthday money.-London Answers. Recognized the Smell. The sexton of an Episcopal church in Boston has many stories to tell of the remarks and comments made by vis itors. One Christmas when the church was1 beatifully decorated with cedars and firs an old lady walked up the aisle to the chancel and stood sniffing the air after every one else had left the church. "Don't it smell solemn ?" she said at last to the sexton as she turned away with evident reluctance. "I don't know as I ever realized just what the 'odor of sanctity' meant before. today. We don't have any such trimmings In the, church I attend up in the country." Youth's Companion. Humann Calendars. In Slam every woman is a walking calendar.

That Is why, for all the solemnity f the place, the soberest charity and Lie best bred propriety in the world ould not prevent a titter at a little arce that happened once in a church a- Brooklyn. A gentleman and his wife, who were ffended at something the preacher aid, gravely rose and stalked toward be door, with their heads held high in ssertive disdain. The wife followed he husband. Unfortunately when they were half ray down the aisle the husband drol ed his-glove and stooped to pick It up. ate, tLe humorist, determined that he wife should keep her head so high bat she did not see her husband stoop. 1he went sailing on and doubled over dm in riotous confusion. The congregation held its breath and :ept its composure. The two recovered hemselves and went on. Hoping to scape quickly, they turned to what :oked like a side door. The husband iulled it open with an Impressive wing. Before he could close it out mbled the window pole, a long duster nd a stepladder. The congregation ould hold its mirth no longer, and aan and wife fled to the real exit in indignified haste amid a general and ervasive snicker. TOXIN AND ANTITOXIN. Whiat These Two Terms In Medicine Mean Made Clear. Pasteur, the great' French savant, ounder of the sciences of bacteriology tnd preventive medicine, proved in the irst place that the epidemic diseases tre due to minute living organisms, lants and animals and -that for each lefinite disease there is a specific micro >rganism. This was the great funda. nental fact. Later it became evident hat these microscopic parasites cause isease by certain chemical poisons rhich they produce, called toxins. In nany cases the micro organism, If ;rown in culture tubes .outside the >ody, will produce the same toxins. Lfter being separated from the living erms which produced them these sub tances will produce all the symptoms f the disease when injected into an LnImal body. The body at the begin ng of an attack of fever is not, how Lver, passive. Its cells react against he poisons introduced and a struggle nsues, the end of which Is life or eath, the fighting being purposeful Ld definite. The body cells secrete L specific chemical bod-y which has the power of neutralizing or rendering iarmless the particular toxin intro luced. This antidote to the poisonous :oxin we call the antitoxin. When .a nan recovers from an attack of sniall ox, -it Is because his antitoxins have roved too strong for the toxings of the lisease, and his after Immunity, It eems probable, Is due to the persist ~nce within his body of the antitoxins mce produced.-C.
