' Freight car numbered 13315 ef the Mew York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad passed through Darlington, Pawtucket, one day last week on the branch railroad. What that ear con tained, where It was from, or where It was going Is of no consequence. The Humber of the car, 120-15, Is all that Is of special interest. ■ This number on freight ears Is Iho fortunate number to find. A few years ago, and perhaps until to-day, commer cial traveled and whoever else was traveling much, or was much about the railroad, were all the time looking for this magic number, lu tho belief that to see it was a good omen, and wonder ful were, the stories told of iho good fortune which fell to those who were so happy ns to see It. It Is a simple matter, nnd yot It Is not often a car With this number comes Into view. It la very likely that lin'd nuy other par ticular number beqn chosen It would have been ns difficult to find It.

Uabappy Tonna Men Who Lost Their Hearts 1o Their Queen. Queen Victoria had some unforunato lovers lu her day. Her first lover was the late Lord Elphtnstone, a tall, sin gularly handsome young Scottish peer, who was sent to Madras as Governor to get him out of the way. Her next was Lord Fltzallen, another six-footer, a splendid young officer of the First Life Guards, afterward Duke of Nor folk; but he wAs a Roman Catholic, n fatal objection. His family sent him abroad, and, falling 111 at Athens, ho married tho daughter of Admiral Lyons, British minister there, and sis ter of Lord Lyons, remembered as min ister at Washington. Her third lover was Lord Alfred Paget, one of tho Marquis of Anglesca's splendid sons, an officer In "the Hines,” standing nbout six feet two, who Is the father of Cnpt. Paget, married to Mis* Minnie Stevens, ond who was then tbe Queen's equerry-ln chlef. This love affair was regarded as so dangerous that King Leopold of Belgium, the Queen’s uncle, was called In. The result was that Prince Albert was sent for next. Albert was at that time a courteous, quiet, accomplished prince. Over tho chimney place of his student chamber there hung ouo of Chalon’s exquisite drawings of Vic toria, a fair aud graceful young girl. Albert had long been taught to look upon Victoria as his wlfe-tfl-be, aud ho responded quickly to the summons. Tho affair whs quietly managed by Leopold. In the court circle column the Prince’s name found rather an ob scure place, nnd ns the Prince nnd Queen went out the evening after his arrival for a saunter In tho woods, their stroll was unobserved except by the •elect few who were In the secret. The next morning, however, tho London Times announced, "Her Majesty Is about to load to tbe hymeneal altar his royal highness, Prince Albert of Gotha nnd Haxe-Cobourg.” And thus began Victoria's last love affair. Redeeming Mull Mated Money. According to the present rule of thg redemption division of tho United States Treasury nothing less than frag ments representing two-fifths of a bank note or greenback will be redeemed by Uncle Sam. "It that much of a note Is presented tho United States,” writes Clifford Howard, on “Destroying a Mil lion Dollars a Day," in the Ladles’ Home Journal, "will allow the holder one-half the face value of It, whlls three-llfths of a note will be redeemed for full value. Of course, there are oc casional exceptions to this rule. "Some time since a man from New England forwarded a bunch of discol ored paper money that ho had found buried In a field. It bad Ipld In the ground so lo'ng a time, nnd had been so generously feasted upon by worms, that It fell to pieces as soon ns It was touched. It would have been utterly Impossible for any one unacquainted with the secret marks that the gov ernment places on Its bills to gather these decayed pieces of money together In their proper order; but some of tho clerks In tho redemption division of the treasury are particularly export In sorting and deciphering bits of muti lated money, and through long years of experience are able to tell In an In stant to what particular note or kind of note a certain scrap belongs. When the pieces contained In this bunch of old money wore finally sorted and mounted It Was found that while there was not one complete note remaining (not more than two or three scraps In tome Instances) the rightful owner was entitled to a redemption of four hun dred dollars. Unfortunately for the man who found the money, he could not prove his ownership, nor could he make affidavit ns to what had become of the missing portions of the notes. Consequently, Iho United States was tho gainer In this ease. Accidents of this nature are by no means rare, ns la attested by.the number of boxes of charred remnants of money which are kept among the curious records of the redemption division.” I’rosOrvliig Hi* Boots. Anew wrinkle may be learned from an English soldier who was noted for keeping his boots In better condition mil making them last longer than nuy af his brother officers. When asked what he did to them to prtrvont the leather from cracking and keeping it toft and smooth his reply was "Mut ton bone.” When an explanation was demanded he said: "It Is nothing, I as sure you. My man nsks tbe cook for a knuckle bone, which he cleans nnd then Bakes. After rubbing the leather with cream, be then frotes them as hard ns he can with the bone.

PROBLEMS THAT AWAIT THE AT TENTION OF SCIENTIFIC MEN. No Standard of Sinull or Unit Odor Ham Yot Keen rtlilUliod—Nome Remark able Til In a About Odor*-•500,000 Earned in Fees b.r Professional Smelling. One subject which in this scientific ago has mot been made the subject of thorough scientific investigation is the tense of smell. Our knowledge of the science of odors remains about where it was fifty years ago, although we have learned so much about light, heat nnd sound. Tho old imperfect classification of smells into “pungent, saline and saccharine” s ill remains. Indeed, about all that most of us know is that some smells are agreeable nnd some decidedly the reverse. There is no standard of smell, no unit odor es tablished ns a base of comparison. We do pot know when one smell is twice as strong as another. Asa famous chemist said: “Quantitative analysis has not yet been applfSd to the skunk." A writer in tho Independent does, indeed, sny that on an examination of several thousand flowers ho found that there was a connection between color and perfume. Ho finds that of white flowers 14 percent, gave out agreeable odors; of gray ones, 11 per cent.; of red, a little over 8 per cent.; of yel low, a little over (i per cent.; of bine, 4 per cent., nnd of green, only 2 per cent. But, further, yellow flowers contain the largest nnrnhcr with a disagreeable odor, and the white the next largest. But this analysis is vi tiated by the fact that a perfume agree able to one person may be sickening to another. There is no icsthetio standard of smells, and there are but few which all declare to bo delightful. An English manufacturer of perfumes asserts that he is able to combine odors so as to produce a certaiu effect aud talks of a perfume scale, but this seems rather commercial than scien tific. If he could really produce an odor which everybody would recog nize, by the combination of different smell elements, the foundation of a science of smell would be laid. One remarkable thing abont odor is that the emission of it does not appre ciably dimihish the mass of the body from which it is given off. A grain of mnsk may fill n room with odor for years and weigh as much at the end of the time as it did at the beginning. Its weight must have been diminished, tor it is impossible to believe that an effect on our organs of sense can be produced without an impact of materi al particles from a source of energy, but the amount of matter dissipated is infinitesimal in the case of an odor dus body. The sense of smell-is apparently universal, bnt stronger in animals than in man. The lowest orders smell with their months, insects smell with their hairs, fishes smell in water, and the aentenes of tho power of smell in flogs nnd in savages is well known. Humboldt says that the Peruvian In dians could tell in the darkest night whether a person approaching was a European, a negro, or an American Indian. In those deprived of the oth er senses the power of analyzing odors is sometimes abnormally developed. The Scotch boy, James Mitchell, a blind deaf mute, could distinguish the individuals in ft room into which ho was lod. John Mossman, a deaf mute of Parkersburg, W. Vn., was able to locate oil walls with the certainty that i setter finds partridges. His nose brought him a fortune of $500,000 ft-t fees for professional smelling (it is strange that no one has trained ardog to point petroleum). Possibly a dog might be taught to “stand” a nugget of gold in the frozen soil of Alaska, as pigs find truffles in Perigord, for met als have a characteristic smell. It i probable that everything gives off a characteristic effluvium, though our sense is not delicate enough to detect the most snbtle ones. Homo gases, like hydrogen, have no odor, others, like chlorine nnd the product of the Hartford Gas company, have a very perceptible one. There is a general idea that a body must possess a mo lecular weight fifteen times as great as that of hydrogen before it can affect the olfactory nerves of human beings, bnt even that needs confirmation. \Ve frequently confound taste and smell, and it is said that no one ran distin guish nn onion from an apple by taste alone. Home odors cling to the surface of things, as the odor of game, which rarely rises much above the ground; others are rapidly diffused through the air. Why is this? No one knows. Ono of the most singular things'fibout tbe sense of smell is that it is not sub ject to illusions. Sight may be de ceived. Oue may imagine he sees things which are not before him; he may hear a roaring in his ears wheq there is no sound, bnt it is said that even the insane are not subject to ol factory delusions. There are no ghost smells. If this is true, what is the reason, what is the explanation of the phenomenon? Again, why are the earth and fields so much more fragrant in The merging than at noon, when, on the other band, the strength of most odors is increased by heat? The scientific men ought at least to “make a bluff” at some of these prob lems. As it is, here is an original sense or power of perception of the utmost refinement, older, probably, than the sense of sight, a power for tbo exercise of which we use a compli cated mechanical and nervous mech anism, the nature and modas operand! of which is as much a matter of con jecture as were those of the senses of sight and smell IQOO years ago.

A COLD SEEKER’S REWARD. Labored Five Years to Amass ■6OOO, and Yet It Was Useless. “Sometimes a man finds gold,” said an old minor who had been talking Klondike, “but more often ho finds rheumatism and backaches and semi starvation and misery. There is a fascination about the pursuit, how ever, and mauy men stick to it purely from a love of the gambling there is in it, and not that they care anything about the pleasures that money will buy. “I remember an old fellow wbo lived iu Lonfea’a Hollow in California away back in the CD’s. There was quite a camp near him, but be did not mix with anybody. He washed dirt all day, cooked his own meals and never ■ stirred from his cabin after dark. This cabin was built on the summit of a bill, and about 300 yards away was a small spring, from which he used lo pack his water. He was asked often why he did not live nearer to the water, but said that he liked the exercise of climbing. Ho never drank or gambled or wore good cloth ing or ran after women, and as he was always at work the boys figured that be must have had considerable money in his but. One night a couple of rustlers tried to scare him out. He killed both of them, and after that bad men and good men alike let him alone. “After a while the recluse died and about a dozen of the boys came up tbo hill from Loafer’s Hollow and buried him. Then they began to look for the gold that they knew he must have hidden. In all the years ho had never been to the county town, so they knew that be could not have put his dust in the hank. Among the search ers was George Hearst, afterward a senator from California, and the father of the present ow ner of the Ney York Journal, then a very poor man. Hearst was a big follow and an expert miner. Ho was more industrious than any of the rest. For a space of three acres the ground around the old fel low’s cabin was lorn up, and oven tbo walls were taken down and tbo logs riven opart, but not a cent's worth of metal was found. The treasure seek ers finally gave it up, the yield played out in Loafer’s Hollow, the men went elsewhere, and in a little while there was not a sound in the Once busy camp, save the harsh call of the jay bird or the owl’s boot at night. “Three years afterward a boy who was ont hunting squirrels stopped at the spring to rest. Ho bent his lips to the cool water and cut his hand slightly upon some sharp, hard sub stance buried at the edge of the spring. Digging the sand away, with a boy’s curiosity, he found that it was a piece of (in, and going deeper ho found that the tin belonged to a threo gallon kerosene can sunk into tho ground under tbo edge of the spring. Burrowing deeper, ho finally loosened it and with mnoh effort pulled it ont. It contained tho miser’s dust, neatly tied into half-pound sacks, made of rawhide. They were all rotten, but held together. There were forty of these sacks, worth in round numbers til23 apiece, or SSOOO in all. As the old miner had no relatives that any one had ever heard of, tho boy got it nil. “It had taken the old man some tiling like five years of the hardest kind of work and tho hardest kind of living to amass that, sum, so yon see that the rewards of washing gold are not always excessive.” The Mont Costly Fruit*. Hothouse grapes aro the costliest of fruits. They are never less than 75 cents a pound, and when they are most costly, in February and March, they sell for $!) a pound, sometimes going as high as $lO a pound. At prices ranging up to $2 a pound there is a ready sale for them; at the higher prices they are sold almost exclusively for the use of invalids. There is a sale for all that are produced, but the production at the season of highest prices is small. The cost of produc tion is great, and the vines may die from exhaustion after a single season of forcing. Tho next most costly fruit is the hothouse peach. Hothouse peaches sell in February at $2.50 each. They are used mainly by invalids, but such poaches are also often sold for gifts. They are presented ns flowers, or as bonbons would be. Three or four peaches aro packed in cotton and set off with a few peach leaves in a hand some box. Hothouse peaches run down to about (10 cents each in April and May, when we begin to get the first of the peaches from the South.— New York Sun. Walking Four Miles an Hour. “There’s no end of people,” said a man who walks a great deal himself to a Boston Joureal reporter, “who think they can walk four miles an hour; and very likely they could, but they would have to move along very briskly to do it. Asa matter of fact, very few people indeed do walk four miles an hour; tlftee miles is a very fair gait, and when one exceeds that he is beginning to walk fast. If my recollection serves, the old ‘common’ time in the army carried a man two and seven-eighths miles an hour. The distances which the soldier covers in An hour have now been increased somewhat by slightly increasing the length of his steps, but my impression is that the ‘common’ time remains un der three miles an hour. Certainly three miles would be good, fair walk ing, and fully up to men’s average speed.” Too (iftllant by Far. Laura (old maid, to her neighbor at dinner) You eat very little, Mr, Jenkins. .

DRAMATIC EPISODES IN THE LIFE OF EDMUND C- ROSS. From TypeAftting to the United Stale* Senate - Back to the “Chh" Again How He Was Appointed C’hlef Emotive of New Mexico—“Hov. Host*. If You Please.* 4 Forty-one years ago, writes J. A. Watrous iu the Chicago Times-Herald, a family named Boss, then and for some time residing in Milwaukee, con stituted a part of a Kansas colony which went all the way from Wiscon sin in covered wagons. It is not nec essary to say that there were troub lous times in Kansas in 185(1, when John 0. Fremont was the first Repub lican candidate for President ami James Buchanan the Democratic. Shooting between men was an every day occurrence, and men shot to kill, too. The colony from Wisconsin was armed, both men and women carrying revolvers and the men rides besides. Nearly every day, while on the way to “bleeding Kansas,” there was a stop to practice shooting at a mark. Some of the young fellows made a frightfully bad showing; couldn’t even hit the tree upon which the mark rested. A printer, Ed Boss, a member of the family mentioned, was a most dismal failure as a marksman. His mother, quite an elderly woman, wearing spec tacles, stood for some time watching the practice. After the printer Ed had shot four or live times and missed the tree each time, his mother said: “My boy, you can’t shoot for shucks; give me that revolver.” Shecnrefnlly reloaded it and took position several yards further away ‘from the mark than Ed and the other poor shooters had been located. Planting her left foot sixteen inches behind her right and bringing the revolver up like a profes sional, she took a quick glance at the mark through her glasses, pulled the trigger and down came the white patch. “Stick it up said Mrs. Boss. Again the mark fell to the ground and again it was replaced and knocked down. When Mrs. Boss offered the revol ver to her son he said: “No mother, you keep it. I’m no gunner; you are. I will get a “sit” in a printing office when we get there and use another kind of “shooting stick,” and yon can kill my share of those border ruffians. ” Ross kept his promise. He went to work at his’ trade and in due time be came an editor and proprietor. Not long after the war Kansas had one of its regular rip-roaring senatorial con tests, which resulted in the election of the printer-editor, Edmund G. Boss. Ho went to Washington a Republican, but would not follow his party in the enterprise to depose President Andrew Johnson. The Kansas Republicans never forgave him. Since then he has been a Democrat. When Mr. Cleveland became presi dent the first time Boss was a typeset ter on a New Mexico paper and very poor. One day, while setting up a list of presidential appointments, the old printer, whose family had been scantily clad and fed for some time, got to thinking over his past good for tune. He said to himself; “The last Democratic president was saved by ray vote, and 1 have suffered for that vote ever since. I could have been re-elected to the United States Senate, maybe several times, but for that act. As it is, I’m poor, in need, my family lacking the comforts of life, mid I working at the case. I’ll ask the new president for the governorship of New Mexico.” The next day his application and the letters of several fhtiuential Democrats were on their way to Washington. It was not many weeks after that when the foreman handed the old printer mother “take” of presidential ap pointments. When his dim old eyes, looking through spectacles, fell upon “Edmund O. Ross, to be governor of New Mexico,” the “stick” fell from his hand, and when the foreman looked overplus “c#se” the printer’s face was in his half-closed hands, resting on the “space” and “a” “boxes.” “What’s the matter, Boss?” asked the foreman. The old man slowly raised his head, looked at the foreman and said: “Gov ernor Ross, if you please; look at that,” and he pointed to his “copy.” “Drop your work and come here, all of you,” called the foreman. “I want to introduce you to the governor of New Mexico. Together, hip, hip, hurrah!” One of the printers dodged out of the office and ran over and told the Boss family of the good news, and when the governor was about halfway home be saw his household coming to meet him. The baby, a winsome young lady, threw her arras about his neck, gave him a noisy kiss, and in a half laugh and half cry voice ex claimed: “Oh, papa, we are all so glad for your sake. Now you won’t have to w'ork so hard. ” < “Well, daughter, I’m so glad for your sake and that of the family.” Mr. Ross made an excellent gover nor, as he had senator twenty years before; but his old mother outranked him many times in revolver practice. The last I heard from him he was still living in New Mexico. The Kartli at. the Pole*. A French scientist, M.de I’Apparent, finds in Nansen’s discovery of the un expectedly great depth of the Arctic ocean an argument tending to show that the earth is slightly top shaped, the protuberance corresponding to the point of the top being at the South I’ole. This, he thinks, would explain the different results arrived at by the various measurements of astronomers and geodesists. These differences are very small in comparison with the en tire hulk of the globe, yet they are readily appreciable, and one of the explanations that has been suggested for them is that the earth is tetrahedral in form. But M. de I’Apparent thinks the top-shape theory is preferable. The fact that to an eye looking at the earth from a point in space it would I not sensibly differ in appearance from a true sphere shows how refined are the methods of science which enable men living on the surface of the globe to detect variations in its general con tour. The colored people of the United States maintain seven colleges, seven teen academies and fifty high schools. Wnmnn fnrt the Of,user*.

MONTGOMERY WARD & CO. 1 The Great Mull Order House EX 111 to WO Michigan Avenue, CHICAGO Rj aaa^aggjtStg ssikva woo% Kind Forbearance. Frederick Walker, who did sncl* beautiful work In art, and who died so* young that all the great promise In him could not be disclosed, began his draw ings for tho Cornhlll . magazine by an Interview with Thackeray, wherein ho was much agitated, and the great writ er proved correspondingly kind. Walker had an exceeding reverence for Thackeray, and greatly dreaded an Interview with him. “Bring him hero,” Thackeray bad said, "and wo shall soon see whether be can draw.” So, early one morning, the young man was taken to the author’s house In Onalow Square. The drive was a si lent one. for the artist became every instant more agitated and distressed. This Thackeray noticed at once, and did bis best to set him at ease. “Can you draw?" he asked, after a little general conversation. “Mr. Smith says you can.” "Y-e-es, I think so,” stammered Walker. “I'm going to shave,” said Mr. Thack eray. “Would you mind drawing my back?” So be turned about, and Walker mads a most excellent likeness of him In thal position. If the lion had faced him, subjecting him to the ordeal of scruti ny, It was probable that he could not have worked at all. Doubtless Thack eray knew this, and so took his delicate precaution.

Before he died he left positive Instructions that he should Ikj burled In a certain suit of clothes.

Finally one of them suspected that the old man had served them a shabby trick, and suggested that tho body be ex humed and the clothing examined. This. was done, and tho coat, waist, coat and trou: ors were found to bo lined with Bank of England notes.— GEORGIA TO THE FRONT FOR TROTH, f Ranger, Oa, writes: Twelve years ago I had Heartburn, Kidney DiHoas*.
