-._ Powder t~umr Mua AN INCIDENT IN REAL LIFE. Aeswlag Hew npleMsmat tPpaCaa make Themselves by TMir talk. I stepped upon a Broadway car at the lower end of Broadway and rode fito alo*g that fast changing highway as far a Nineteenth street. At the corner o' Chamber street and Broadway a man o perhaps 40 and a woman not more itha 25, he carrying a huge portmanteau. a collection of wraps, two umbreilas and a cane, she leading by the hand a 8-year-old baby, joined the partially crowded patronage already seated. A lound of dissatisfaction rested upon the brow of the man. The frown of an al weedy born rumpus fast unfolding lmt< (ruitage made forbidding and it.y 1ile somely countenan, e of the woman. tIHe gervous disposition made itself kn. xwn to every one in the car and particul I . to the little boy as she yanl:ed the _ ic; by the arm in", the seat beside her. Aft r a moment's silence the woman saidl, 'Yon migtht have known how it woul' be." to which he responded. "Well, I might have known. but I didn't, so shu; apt" Another piassntger entered the car at that moment and sttmabled over the port waantean. "Hang that bag!" -aidl the man. 'If I were you, I would keep my cu,s fag for hqLne," sai I the woman, and so en and on anl on. The ensuing lihf hour was passed b3 these two in a s: -.in which would h;ave done credit to th". most pronounced ha;l in the dirtiest quarters of a third ra1't, ash mark't. Titc little boy, thank h. ei en, went fast asleep. Much of the con versation between the two was inauli Ile save to the three or 'our people in imi.~e diate contact with ti:em, but every oicst in awhile the shrill voice of the ti :,..! bird soared into upper altitudes of , !; ance, making discordant the entire at mosphere and attracting the artenti, I. of nearly a score of people. They t o onut at the corner of Fourteenth st r. t and Broadway and entered a cafe--he sullen, ejaculatory and profane: se keyed up to G in alt, defiant, shrewish. chock full of scold. Well, what of it? It is not such a vt-r uncommon thing for man and wif.--: lovers even, for daily iLtercours.i- quarrel and to vent serpentlike his-. from the unruly members that wag wi: ourious motion as they distill poison from bitter and jaundiced hearts. It is uot so uncommon, I admit, but isn't it always suggestive? I thought as I look' .1 at the man, with a good, square, clean forehead, well marked brows, a cl a·r skin and an air of self poise, that he s as hardly doing himself justice. Save that his hands were rude and rough and that his boots were country made, that his portmanteau was considerably old+e. than the ordinary hill and that his n: brella looked as though it might have been utilized by Mrs. Noah when she came from the ark, he was a man of tli world in appearance. And the woman had a pretty face Her hair was Darted in the middle. na women's hair should be, and revealed in its old fashioned brushing a tiny ear. not so small as to indicate utter selfishness but, on the other hand, not so large as t,, rival a genuine Saddle Rockoyster in it vulgarity. Her eyes were brown. .,,f: at that; her teeth were regular and 'lean: her dress was neat, her hands and feet well clad, and an occasional pat upon the boy's shoulder as he lay lies tling against her, fast asleep, iniicated the feminine nature,. the affectionate ten deruess of the mother. Listenin tunder the circumstanc.e was not rudene.s. It was compulsory. I sat next the buy. Some of his banana skin ernaments my coatsleeve until this mu meat. As he lay semicoiled up I noticed the copper nails in the bottom of his shoe and the copper toe upon the same. The group was easily and perfectly withix. my vision. As word after word fell red hot I thought: How odd this all would have tsounded in that shell-like ear fivw years ago. How strange it would have seemed to the lover had he heard it or had it been suggested to him that ever it could be possible for him to hear such language from such lips.-Howard in New York Recorder. eeaeleiag Old Lubbes. Crude rubber is worth from 40 to 78 eats per pound, and yet a pound of hose or packing costs very much less. This would be hardly practical if it were not hr the advances that have been made it the art of reclaiming or recovering rub bar, which can be done at the total cost t about sDents per pound.

And yet there Sa store aon Michigan vene where they ssm to be ademad. Omne the wiadwe is a t r hasd up with Urnt dy United st emp, ameas Sth S at demomlati. There mamt be thousands of them, and the oh. a n caly wonder what in tr wee can be their value. They csan~ posess ay particular interest to the stamp collector, for they are, notbhs, rare nor valMable. To the ordinary pe son the canceled cenat postage stamp seems a worthless thing ladeed. Prices paid for such stamps. however, are 1C cents per 1,000, $1 per 10,000, and $12 per 100,000. Many an induetrious lad will probably be moved by this o0er (as the appearance of the window indeed testifies), and yet the immense labor of collecting 100,000 stamps can be appre orated. Yet during the Centennial stamps were bought in the same manner, and those who purchased them are today reaping a handsome profit, for the Cen tennial postage stamp has increased won derfully in value in a canceled condi tion during the last few years. As time goes on stamps increase greatly in value, especally stamps issued for one year only onaspecial occasion like the Cen tennial or fair. To show how valuable a stamp may become, the writer of this may mention the fact that eight years ago he purchased a first issue English envelope stamp in London for $7.50, and it was at that time worth a great deal more in this country. Now it has prob ably increased still more.-Detroit Free Press. A New Theory ef Sleep. Some discussion has been going on concerning Herr Rosenbaum's recently proposed theory of sleep-namely, that the anemic condition of the brain is due to an excess of water in the brain cells of that body. The supposition, as stated, is that sleep is essentially a matter of nervous action, and the direct cause is thought to be fatigue of the nerve cells which communicate with the heart and bring about sbme change in the circula tion. The nerve cells are thus supposed to be full of water when sleep comes on, and this water during sleep passes into the venous blood as waste, and the nerve cells then receive nourishment from fresh arterial blood. Then when the proc sea is entirely over the sleeper awakes. According to this theory, sleep is not solely healthy because it rests the body and brain, but also because it invigor ates them. It is also to be inferred from Rosenbaum's theory that the nerve cells and brains of infants who sleep so much must contain more water than is to be found in those of adults, and that the effectiveness of brain cells is in in verse ratio to the water contents.-New York Tribune. Odd Insurance. There is in existence a legitimate "graveyard" company. It is a company operating entirely among the very poor and insures a man against pauper burial. The agents of the company put it in less disagreeable terms and offer simply to guarantee decent burial. The company engages to farnish a grave in a cemetery and see that the ina sured is respectfully interred therein. If any memlber of his family dies before him, he is given a deed to a lot in which he may bury his dead. Some of the large companies issue a policy covering losses from defective title, defalcations by partner, agent or other employee for which a firm may be liable, damage by storm, losses caused by accident to or by steam boilers, en gines, lifts, steam pipes. automatic sprin klers or other specified machinery, in cluding all kinds of machinery in use. Boston Globe. To Stop a Trolley Car lIstastly. A Rochester man has devised a plan by which a trolley street car can be stopped almost instantaneously, or with in a space of three feet, while the car is going at full speed. His device is oper ated by a lever in the motorman's cab. It is, generally speaking, a steel shoe, upon which the rear wheels of the car ride, the under side of which is corru gated so as to produce great friction upon the rails of the track. On the top of the shoe is an arrangement which, as soon as the wheel rises upon the shoe, clamps the outer rim of the wheel and at the same time grasps the inner edge of the rail. The simple weight of the car crowds down the shoe upon the rail and at the same time clamps together, as in a vise, the wheel and the rail, and all this by a single movement on the part of the motorman.-New York Telegram. smplse weses te 3sst. The following ttle satory is told of a ihtssn oe Port Chester, N. Y., whose ed osacn was somewhat superior to his wife's, a fact regarding which she was very sensitive. On one occasion the man drove over to White Plains to inquire regarding the health of his sister-in-law. who was dan. gerously ill. Upon returning he was met by his wife, who asked of her sis ter's condition. "She is convalescent." replied the man. Immediately and in the mi.st emphatic manner the woman cried out: "'I want none of your soothing words. I want facts. You tell mne this minute, Is my sister dead or alive?'--New York Herald.
