Ik Wa at k Heating la lodlanapolli That th Tolce or tba Great SinKr Vt First Heard ty th Otlrrlng ETangellat Their Flnt Work. It was at Indiiuiftpolla in 1870 that these two men first tnade each other's acquaintance. Mr. Moody was already diRplaj-injr that real in evanRclistic work which mibucqtiently mado him famous, though then his effort and Ids reputa tion were confined largely to Chicago. Mr. Sankey's home was in Newcastle, Pa., vrhera he waa then servinr as an In ternal revenue officer. Ilia father was a banker and active in politics arid hold tinder Lincoln's appointment the impor tant position of collector of inland rev enue for four larc;e couuties in western Pennsylvania Young Saukey was then a Christian, having been converted a number of years before during a Metho dist revival, and his talent of Bong had already begun to be used for hia Master. Coming t( Indianapolis to attend as a delegate frm Newcastlo the national convention jf the Young Mon's Christian association, Mr. Bankcy attended one morning a 0 o'clock prayer meeting, held in the basement of the First Baptist church, led by Mr. Moody. The singing dragged, and Mr. Sankey, at the sugges tion of a minister who was seated besido him, started up the familiar hymn, "There is a fountain filled with blood." It went well and waa followed by other songs equally successful, and Mr. Moody became so interested that be looked about to see whence the new impetus in singing came. After the meeting closed, with characteristic quickness of deci sion, Mr. Moody, hardly waiting for an introduction, said to Mr. Ban key "You're the man I have been looking for for the last eight years. Como and lunch with me." The invitation was accepted, and later in the day the two men got together, and the subject of a future combination of forces was talked over in downright earnest. Mr. Moody pressed upon Mr. Sankey the duty of at once joining him in Chicago, but in Sankey's mind there were some prac tical objections arising from his busi ness and family connections. "I am a fovernment officer," ho said to Mr. loody, "and may find it difficult to get released." "There is a hotter govern ment to servo than this," was the re ply that flashed instantly out. But, persuasive as Mr. Moody was, he did not carry bis point then end there. Mr. Eankey took several msntha in which to consider tihe matter. That very afternoon, however, the first Moody and Sankey public meeting was held, with no advertisement except the singing as led by Mr. Moody's newly found friend. It was an outdoor gather ing, and the masses were there. Mr, Moody brought out a box from a store to a favorably located street corner, mounted it, aud there a short but fer vent service of preaching and song was held. At the close of this open air meet ing the two evangelists heudod a pro cession for the Academy of Music, where the convention meetings were held, sing ing as they marched with the crowd t to the Academy of Music, the conventiou having adjourned the discussion rt "How to Reach the Masses" and gone to Eupper. When the delegates got back to the academy building, they found it nearly half full of tho very "lapsed mosses" about whom they had been discussing. Mr. Moody cut short his second address, dismissed the audi ence and went "out with Mr. Sankey o get something to eat. Mr. Sankey waa greatly impressed with these two meet ings and said to Mr. Moody, "You aro reaching the masses whilo other people are talking about them." After the convention was over Mr. Sankey went back to Newcastle ond talked the question over with his wife aud family. lie did not see his duty clearly ail at once, but Mr. Moody kept writing for him to come to Chicago and at last persuaded him to go out for t week to look -he ground over. ArrivLu ; in Chicago in the early morning, ho went first to Mr. Moody's house, reaching there just as family prayers were being held. Almost before Mr. Moody intro duced him Ui his family he asked him to sing a hymu and thus contribute his part toward the informal service of E raise. Then the two men went out lto the streets of tho city vbiting the sick and unfortunate. That day must have been a notable one in the personal history of the two men, who tf twwair J commanded the eager attention of great audiences ou both sides of the sea. Ou this occasion, as two ordinary mibsionaries, they went about from jouse to house, sinking and reodiug the Bible and speaking the word of cheer and hope wherever it was needed. This wag their first day's labvr together. Evening meetings were he. J during the week in the Illinois street churoh, of which Mr. Moody was the head and leader. Ou Sunday largo meeting was held in Farwell hall, and as the organist hap pened to be absent Mr. ban key had to sing without iustrainsutal accoatpaui uieut, not having even a small cabinet organ there. The effect of the service upon the people there was so marked that Mr. Moody turned to the singer and síiid, "Yo r I was right." There were that night not less than 100 inquiries, The earn eat preaching and consecrate i song had gone home to many a hart. From that fine until the present these men have been colaborers, and the story of their career here and in Oretit Britain is so familiar that It need not again bo rehear sod. Cungregationaliit.

Honor to the poinoersiu tho vast field of scieucel Mr. John Simo has published at the Chiswick Press in pamphlet form a very interesting memoir of Sir Francis Ronalds. Twenty years before Wheut stono and Cooke or Mono had patented their improvements in the telegraph, in deed while the first two were respective ly lads of 12 and 14 years of figo, Ro nalds had sent messages over eight miles of overhead wires of his own const ruc tion and had laid and worked a eorvice side nnderround line of telegraph of sufficient length to demonstrate the practicability of communication by tele graph between long distances. Details of his overhead telegraph wires were published by him in 1823. Ro nalds' residence at Hammersmith, where these experiments were carried out, is the houso now and for long past occu pies! by Mr. William Morris, tho poet, who has caused a tablet to bo placed on the wall bearing tho inscription, "The first electric telegraph, eight miles long, was constructed here in 1810 by Sir Francis Ronalds, F. R. S.," etc. An antotype facsimile of a portrait of this father of electric communication ac companies the publication. London Telegraph. Calculating the Distance nf Storm. Although lightning and thunder occur always simultaneously, an intervnl of ohorter or longer duration is usually ob served between these two phenomena, which is due to the fact that sound trav els only at the rate of 1,100 feet per sec ond, whilo the passage of light is almost instantaneous. Based upon this fact, it is an easy matter to tell, at least approx imately, how many miles a thunder storm is away. A normal pnlae will beat about one stroke to the second, and by counting the pulse beats during the interval of the lightning and tho thunder the lapse of seconds is arrived at and consequently tho number of feet, which can bo reduced to miles. For example: If 80 seconds elapse be tween the fcish of the lightning and the crash of thunder, the storm center is at a distance of 33,000 feet, or about CJ miles. An almost accurate calculation can bo made by using a watch with o minute dial. St. Louis Fost-Dispatcb, Uso Puro Water Freely.

There is a loh?li r farm, or pound, a it is called, 12 acres in extent at South port. Mo. This pound Is the mott succuuful ou the coaBt, whence 1,000,000 lobsters are shipped each yesr. Tho pound is formed by buildinir a solid dam acrors a tidewater cove. This dam does not quito rise to high wator mark, but acroca tho top is placed a fenco of iron rods, per mitting a daily change of water and pre venting the lobsters from escaping. In tho spring and fall business is moat brisk. When the fishermen bring the lobsters to the pound,. the "fifch," as they re called, are hoisted to tho dum, measured, and those which are more than 10J inches long, tho legal limit, are thrown in. If a lobster is clever, his lif o in the pound maybe long and full of joy. If ho is stupid, he will be fished, out with a drr.g seine and packed in a barrel, wit h a piece cf ice for a pillow, acd sent to Boston. The seine la made of stout twine end is weighted at the bottom with a heavy chuin. Along the top is a row of corka, which sustain the weight of the seino while the chain drags ou the bottom of the pound. A single ca.st of this seine will brin; up lobsters enough to fill 11 barrels. The chain as it sweeps along the bottom stirs np the lobsters, which immediately shoot backward into tito slack twine. Ia tak ing them out the men wear heavy mit tens, though even then they are often nipped. In the pound the lobsters are fed on ea!t herring, ineu rowing about In Bkill's and pitrhiti tho herring over board. Thú is i .lied "feeding thechiok ens," and it takes about six barrels to make a light luncheon for tho l'.uck. Boston Globe.

With Which the Mind Works When II Is Supposed to It Taking a lteat-How Long It Took to Do Ten Hours' Work. A few evenings since a uumbor of llWspapor men were iu an o.llce await ing the arrivl of a gentleman who wns to call together a meeting that they had been directed to report for their rdspoc tivo papers. A number 'f topics was discussed, and one of these wis dreams and tho extreme rapidity with which mental operations aro performod. A number of experiences were given, but the ono that attracted the most attention was that of a Call representative, who narrated what he had done in a dremi. "It was." said he, "in 1803 that after a hard day's work I reached home and lost no timo In retiring, dancing at the clock os I turned off the gas I noticed that it was just 18 minutes after mid night. 'Shall I tell yon nt this point how lontr I was dreaming or tell first what I did In my dream? That you all may better appreciate what was done, I will defer the matter until tho end. Benr in mind that what is to bo told was r11 in the dream. Seated in the old ofiicoon Com mercial street, above Montgomery, I wns endeavoring to put into presentablo shape the facts of a triul that had taken place in the distdct court, when in came E. A. Rockwell who was the chief ed itorial writer, a-id calling me by nnuie said: 'You had better get ready and go to ?an Leandro. Thero's been a terri ble railroad accident. There's 60 or 60 peoplo killed, and I don't know how many injured.' Georso E. Barnes, nt that time ono of the proprietors nnd managing editors, hod overheard Rock well, and in that quiet way of his sug gested that no time bo lobt in reaching Oakland, and there procuring a buggy and a pair of horses, to go to San Lean dro or wherever tho accident was. "Rushing down to the ferry landing at the corner cf Pacific and Davis streets, I reached there in time to find that the steamer for the other side of tho bay had just pulled out, and that I would have to wait half an hour for the next boat. The delay was vexatious, and then when the ferryboat did move eastward it seem ed as if s'.ie would never make her land ing, sho seemed to bo going so slowly. When tho slip on tho other sido was reached, there was some accident to tho local train, and there was not any pro spect of starting for an hour or more. There was not a team of any kind at the landing, so 1 had to walk to Oakland. "A desire to ma!:e up for the time lost urged mo on. and I think the timo mado from tho landing t BroudwHy and Washington street has never been bcp.lcn by man. Near the corner I went into a livery stable and ordered a pair of horses hitched np. There was a delay there, for the proprietor had hia doubts about the ability of iho team making the trip out and back. Finally I started, and the way those horses flew over tho road was a cautiou. When the sceuo of tho disaster, some distance beyond San Le andro, about U miles from Oakland, was reached, I proceeded at once to gather the facts. "Down on the notebook were penciled the names of 80 odd men, women and children who had either been killed out right or burned to death in some of tho cars which had caught fire. Then fol lowed the names of abont 40 Who had been injured, a description of their in juries and the opinions of the physicians who were in attendance ts to the possi ble outcome in each case. Now, any of you who have hud experience in gather ing information of that kind can fully appreciate that it was not child's play, for the injured wero in did -rent places, and it required time to get around to them all. "Then there was tho obtaining of data about the dead. A number of them were well known residents of this city, others were from Kan Jose, so it became neces sary to obtuiu enough to give each a do cent obituary notice. In addition to this it beenmo a purt of my duty to get the statements of passengers, so as to de scribe their feelings when tbo train de railed and went over ou Its sido down a little gully and bo able to writo up the narrow or fortunate escape of e.iclu Then there were railroad oliiclals to in terview, and, us you ull know, they ure the hardest kind of peoplo to obtain facts from. ' "Veil, It took nearly threo hours to get all tho matter that was needed for a sensational article that was to fppear nndur n La'f column scaro head. Then there was the rido buck to Oakland set tlement with the livery stable man, who swore that he would never rent a team to a newspaper man again, a rush in a hack to tho fi rry landing and the trip to this city. Without waiting to get any thing to eat I made my way to the oflico and nt once commenced to write np, tell ing every one- who ciuim to at k for de tails to let iuu alone. I i'.V. not writo in copper plate style, and for that miUcr I never did, b. I I wrote and kept on writ ing until I had enough to fill what would make about four full col minis of The Cal! Cf the present day and wrote that big scare heud. As I handed tho last lino to the foreman to set up 1 heaved a k'J of relief and exclaimed, 'Thank (tood nccs, that's doner That is my ("ream.

".H i iuuWi OIL Mother Mioutd Teach Children Not to Handle Strange Animals. Sinco I have spoken in defense of the flog, lot mo sny something inoro with relation to that other favorito household companion of man the rut. I would call your attention to the fact that tho cat Is a beast far more useful to mankind than tho do. Without tho latter we could get along, but if we had no cats we should havo a continual plague of rats nnd mice, which would overrun lha cities and devour tho crops nnd small live stock of the fiirmers. At tho sanio timo you may set it down an Indisputable truth that tho domestic cat is a prolific source of a great variety of diseases. It breeds them and dis seminates them shin troubles partic ularly. It carries about with it t -ie con tagion of diphtheria, one of tho most fa tal of huinau complaints, and it H seri ously suspected of helping to now tho germs of consumption. A trouble akin to ringworm which attacks the scalp and causes the hair to tall out is frequently conveyed by cats. Likewiso it is with scarlet fever, which, when it is in a house, is always likely to be scattered abroad by the pet pmiJes of tho estab lishment. The way of It is this: When thero is sickness in u hou.se, old cloths are apt to be used for various purposes. These are commonly thrown afterward Into pomo out of the way place, liko tho corner of a closet. Suppose that there is a tabby about that is on the point of bringing into tho world a litter of kittens, re male cats nro constantly having kittons, as you kno w, beiti.tr anions tho most pro lific of animals. She starches for a se questered noolc for her accouchement and Í3 likely to mako her bed of junt such a lot of old rags as I havodiscribcd. As a natural consequence, not only is the mother cat Infected as to her fur with tho contagious disease, but all of her kittens ore likewise. The latter oro fondled by the children. Pathogenic germs seem to find a most favoiablo breeding ground in tho hair of caU. As a result tho complaint is spread. Un fortunately the infection Is not limited to the house. It is spread abroad by the cats, which are notorious stragglers. Thus before many days have pnssed thero is an epidemic of 6carlet fever or what not in tho neighborhood. Nobody enn imagine how it got about. Litllo Johnny dies of diphtheria, and nobody dreams that he contracted it by picking np a strange cat. Children havo a way of picking np cats and holding thorn to their faces to caress them. That accounts for ninny cases of that very disrtgreeuble disease called ringworm. It Í3 tho same way with other skin troubles that are con tagions. Cuts as well as dogs are lia ble to tuberculosis of the lungs, other wise known as consumption. That they communicate it to human beings is moro than suspected. Washington Star. A Loulsvlllo Dug That Swears. A Louisville railroad man has a dog that distinguishes the days of tho week and different railroad trains. On days when Midget's owner makes his regular trips the dog accompanies him to llie station, but never attempts to board tho train just stays on the platform, an in terested spectator, and wags his tail cheerfully as tho train moves out. On other days and other trains suburban truins to Parkland or Pewee Valley he hops aboard without hesitation, evi dently awure that the riilo in prosjiect is one that he may share. Midget swears, too; swears like a júrate. The family understand him, but they report that his language is too terrible to bo repeated. When things don't go to suit him, he retires under a bed or sofa nnd lies thero rolling off oaths of fearful description for hours. A young man who was attentive to Midget's young mistress unintentionally offended him, but tho dog got even. Ho actually broke off tho match. He knew tho regu lar nights on which the youth appeared, and at an early hour would ensconce himself under the parlor sofa, from which coign of vantage he would growl forth such volleys of personal and pro fane remarks that tho prospective lover became intimidated and ceased his at tentions. In recognition of these serv ices Midget's master gave him a beauti ful silver collar. Louisville Courier Journal. W Uj Ther Would Not Kiss the Stone.

Though tho Welsh had a high opinion of the cat, the ancient Egyptians had still hij.ht r. ThCs-o inKr.i;;ent nnd civ ilized people treated cats with great dis tinction. It was a crime to kill th in, and when they died they received a pub lic burial, nt which tho people mourned having first f-haved off their eyebrows n a token of Borrow. Tho mot prominent cats wero upon death einl.almej in drug and spices, and cat mummies have been found sido by sido with thoso of kings. When Camhyses, tho Persian, attacked tho Egyptia: city of Pelut-if, ho cunning, ly provided his soldiers with cats in stead of shields. When tho host ad vanced, tho Egyptians retired in coufit ion upon discovering that they would e unable to do damago to their enemy without seriously imperiling the lives of vast number i of cats. And so tho city was taken easily and without tho loss of blood or of a cat. It cannot be disput-d that tho ancient Egyptian catj must have enjoyed life very much. St. Louis Post Dispatch.
