Eighteen Boston tailors have gone on strike, which recalls Queen Eliza beth's salutation to another eighteen: "Good morning gentlemen both." A Japanese admiral has found that the cruiser Izumrud, late of the Baltic fleet, is a "complete wreck." There is such a thing as doing work too well. The New York Post refers to Scotty of Death Valley as a golden calf. The editor of the Post must have reasons for believing that Scotty has pawned his gun. Why should anyone complain about the heat when the telegraph tells us that a large snow bank is still visible on Mt. Jefferson, up in the White mountains?

A little more than thirty years ago a boy conld enter Harvard college and after four years graduate with the highest honora without knowing of the existence of the declaration of In dependence or when the constitution of the United States was framed, says Henry Cabot Lodge In the Reader Magazine. vard was true of other universities and colleges, not included in the scheme of the hfrbcr education. Boys entering col lege were required to know something of the history of Greece and Rome, but not of their own country. During the four years of the college they had opportunity to study the his tory of England and Europe, but to learn aught of the United States. This condition of education ly an Indication of an attitude of mind then passing away, but which bad been predominant. The usual opinion seems to have been during the first half of the nineteenth century that there was no Amerioan history worth telling, apart from the adventures of the revolution, which were both con nected so closely with the history of Europe that they might be deemed of importance. What was true of Har American history was course never was mere on ce Sound as a Dollar. Montlcello, Minn., Aug. 7th—Mr. J. W.

My feet and ankles and legs badly swollen; I could hardly stand on my feet and had given up all hopes of getting cured when a traveling salesman told me that he himself had been cured of Bright's Disease two years before. "He said he had taken to his bed and expected to die with it, but that he had been cured by a remedy called Dodd's Kidney Pills. "I commenced taking them at and I am thankful to say that they saved my life, ment I was completely restored to good health and I am now as sound as a dollar." win* once After a short treat Heat and Cold In Arabia.

Scheme Worked Successfully by a Girl Who Counterfeited Death. A fraud scheme at the expense of life insurance companies was carried out three times successfully as long ago as 1730. A young woman with an extraordinary power of simulating death had fer a confederate an elder ly man, who passed for her une!e. Twice in different parts of England she insured her life in her uncle's fa vor, went into convulsions and to all appearances died. The third time the game was played with an ingenious variation. The uncle went to a life insurance company, explained that he was in financial straits and wished to borrow money on his niece's estate. To compensate for such a loan he would have to Insure her life for its value, but could not afford to have this insurance become known, as it would expose his financial condition and ruin his credit, therefore, agreed to write the insur ance under a bond of secrecy. As usual, the young woman went into convulsions and died, funeral she lay in state for all the world to see. Her uncle was pros trated. He did not try to collect the Insur ance for some months and when he ! did the company paid him in full with expressions of real sympathy. So did nine other companies, which lie had silenced by the joined bis niece on the continent with a very impressive fortune. The company.

Estates of Fallen Favorites Invar) aWy Confiscated. It Is a custom In Morocco that all the property of an official reverts at (his death to the crown. The logic which leads to such results is simple, for the government argues that all fortunes thus accumulated consist ot moneys illegally retained by the au thorities. A governor when appoint ed is probably possessed of no con siderable fortune. When he dies he may be a millionaire. Whence came this wealth? Squeezed most certain ly from the tribes under his authority, and therefore amassed only by the prerogatives of the position in which the Sultan had placed him. It has never struck the Moorish government that these great fortunes might more honorably be returned to the people from whom they were stol en. The result is entire confiscation to the crowr^ including often such pri vate property as the governor may have been possessor of before his ap pointment. When the mighty fall in Morocco the crash brings down with them their families, even uncles and cous ins, and all connected with them, and It is not seldom that the sons of great governors, who have been brought up in the luxury of slaves and horses and retinues of mounted men, have to go begging in the streets. LUNAR RAINBOW IN GEORGIA. Unusual Phenomenon Reported to the Scientific American. A curious and unusual phenomenon, in the form of a rainbow for which the moon instead of the sun furnished the 'light, was observed here on the night of June 19. A heavy rainstorm, accompanied by considerable thunder, occurred just before moonrise. tired to the west the luminary and the bow was first observed, only the extremities for about 25 degrees being visible, the moon at that time being concealed behind a small cloud For about twenty minutes the bow in creased in brightness, and at the end of that time could be clearly traced throughout its entire length. At each end the red and blue colors could be plainly distinguished, but the mainder of the arc showed only as a light streak across the clouds. The conditions for the phenomenon were almost ideal, the moon being but a few days past full, the cloud screen occupying the proper position, and, as it occurred just at moonrise, the bow was seen well up in the heavens. After the clouds had almost entirely melted away, leaving only a slight haze through which the stars shone, portions of the bow could still be clearly discerned.—Poulan correspon dence Scientific American.

A remarkable case of a bicycle acci dent restoring the power of speech to a man who has been dumb for five years, has occurred at Brockhurst, near Portsmouth, England. Jack Moore served with the 16th Lancers in the South African war, and was in valided home after an attack of en teric fever, which deprived him of his power of speech. When returning from work the other night, his bicycle skidded, and in the excitement of the mishap, he was astonished to find him self able to make an ejaculation. His recovery of speech is now perfect, though four operations to restore it had failed. Ladies' Hats a la Hamburg.
