"Spectacles," said an ophthal mologist, according to the Phila delphia Record, "are as old as wa gons, 1 suppose, or as clothes. Wasn't a pair found recently in a mummy case that dated back to something like 300 years before Christ? But the spectacles of the ancients were merely magnifying glasses, and the modern sorts, the prismatic, the spherical, the con cave, the convex, and the cylindri cal, which correct double vision, refraction, myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism, etc. are compara tively modem inventions. They are made of rock crystal, and they have done more good thau anything else in modem medicine, except-, perhaps, anaesthetics. Med ical records show that there is now 40 per cent less of blindness thau there used to be in the world, and this improvement is due entirely to the use of spectacles, which have kept weak eyes from succumbing, as braces keep weak limbs from succumbing. There is also much less of headache thau there was. A great deal of that came, yon know, from the eyes, aud that sort of headache spectacles have banished utterly." WILL PRINT ITS OWN STAMPS Washington, D. C, Aug. 1. The government will probably print its own postal stamps as the result of the bids opened at the Postoffice Department today for the contract of supplying the postage stamps for the United States for four years beginning Oct. 1 next. It had been stated that the prices asked by the bureau of eugraving aud printing was exorbitant aud that the work would have to go to a private con cern. The bureau's bid, however, prov ed the lowest. The only other bid der was the American Bank Note and Engraving Company of New York, whose bid is estimated to be $15,000 higher for the four'-years than the bureau's bid. WANTED A GENTLEMAN: An extremely stout, good-tempered Englishwoman once contriv ed to wedge herself iuto a gallery seat at a Loudon theater. The seat would have accommodated a person of ordinary size, but her avoirdupois caused uuconcealed annoyance to n smartly dressed youth next to her. She began to peel an orange, aud the youth, with a gesture of complaint, removed his hat fussily to a safer position. "I suppose," said the good-tempered woman, "that you,d rather have had a geutleman sitting by the side of you, sir, wouldn't you?" The youth repppishly, in the affirmative. "Ah!" said the woman, thoughtfully, "so would I!" TO ATTACK TROOPS. Shenandoah, Pa.

QUEEN LEAVES MADRID Has Gone With" Her Daughter Vien na. to Madrid, August 1. Queen Maria Christine, mother of King Alfonso, accompanied by the infanta Maria, has left here for Vienna. Ever since the young king ascended the throne there has been discord be tween him and his mother. His conduct toward her of late has bee so disrespectful, not to say brut that it has given rise to stories of mental aberration as the only ex planation. It has been reported that he utterly lost his Aspect for his mother and curses her if she tries to cross him in any way. be once weut so far as to ring for an officer of the guards to eject his mother from his presence, when his confessor, who had been called, entered and succeeded in .subduing him. Since then the queen mother has refused to see him except in public and has passed most of her time prayer. MAYONNAISE DRESSING. To make a thoroughly -good mayonnaise dressing allow one egg to half a pint of oil, half a tea spoonful of salt, a dash, of cayenne pepper and lemon juice as required. Stand the oil and the egg iu the re frigerator until thoroughly chilled and when about to mix the dress ing, place a bowl iu a pail of ice water. Drop the yolk of. the egg carefully into the bowl and set the white aside. Drip the oil on to the yplk drop by drop, stirring with a silver or wooden fork until a smooth paste is formed. Then continue pouring the oil, but slightly faster and alternating with a drop or two of lemon juice. When the entire quantity of oil is exhausted, add the salt and the, pepper and lemon juice to suit the taste. The dressing should be rich smooth and of about the consistency of thick cream. If, as sometimes happens, it shows a tendency to curdle iu the progress of making or becomes too thick, so it will not pour from the spoon, add a little of the white of the egg beaten stiff. If, in ispite of all these precautions, the dressing should curdle, take another egg aud begin again, dropping the curdled mayonnaise slowly into it and stirring vigorously all the while. SMALL STAMPS May Be Issued to the Users of Tiny Envelopes. ("Washington Cor; N. Y. Evening Post.) Postoffice authorities are con sidering the advisability of issuing a aeries of small two cent stamps to be used on envelopes containing visiting cards ana" petite notes. The suggestion comes from New York. The parties who made it believe that there would be a pop ular demand for the miriatnre stamps, on account of the pievail ing 'custom of sending cards of congratulation, condolence, fare well, etc. The snbjVct has been presented to Third Assistant Postmaster-General Madden, who has jurisdiction of postage stamp de signs and issues, but he is not smit ten with it. tie believes that, on the contrary, the department would more gladly issue a rule prohibit ing the use of tiny envelopes. The letter carriers lose them, the in scriptions are otten difficult to deci pher and they are accouuted a geu eral nuisance by clerks aud post masters everywhere. However, as the small euvelopes can not very well be abolished, Mr. Madden has promised to see what can be done in the may of preparing a stamp, that will not entirely obscure them. A CATTLE FEED EXPERIMENT Tom Jones of Wichita county and Dr. Victor A. Norgaard, the latter having beeu connected up to a year ago or so with the United States departmeut of agriculture for ten or twelve yerrs, are making souu experiments which will be of great importance to the cattlemen below the quarantine line. The object of the experiments is to find some way by which cattle free from ticks may cross the line at any sea sou of the year. Dr. Norgaard's plan is to dip cattle with u pre paration which is believed will eradicate the ticks and then with the sanction and co. operation of the state and Federal authorities he proposes to ship a carload of them to some point north of the quarantine line where they will be kept under observation as to their ability to transmit Texas fever. Every precaution will, of course be taken to prevent the possible spread of the disease. If these experi ments prove to be a success it will be difficult to estimate the benefit to the cattle industry south of the quarantine line. It is considered by many that the value of the southern cattle will be enhanced from $2 to $5 per head, when the northern cattlt markets are throwu open to them throughout the year. San Antonio Express. DANGER IN CHINA. San Francisco, Cal Prof. John Fryer, head of the department of Oriental languages at the Univer sity of California, just returned from China, says a rebellion is likely to break out at any moment iu China. A little coal oil kept in the house for cleaning purposes is of inest imable value. It can be nsed in polishing any glass surface, and it will give better results than clear water or any other liquid. Rnb the oil on with a rag, and then rub dry and polish. Window panes, mirrors and other glass articles should be thus treated.
