THE USE OF PALEONTOLOGY.
A llranch of Science About Which Com paratively Little Is Known. "What is the uso of paleontology?" j ! The question has been asked in eongresr ! i by representatives, who freely expressed , the opinion that this branch of science was of no value whatever. Regarding | it from this point of view, they proposed . to give no money to it in the appropria- I tion for the geological survey. In order , to get a word or two on the other side of the question, a writer asked Major J. W. Powell to explain what paleontology ! j was good for. "To begin with," said he, "all the sed- j j imentary rocks of the world are cliarac- j terized by certain fossils of animals and j plants which they contain. The rocks j 3 are classified by their fossils, which in- | dicate the age of the formation in each f case and the age at which it was laid | 1 down. Thus the study of the rocks is ] the study of the fossils in them, and we i call that study 'paleontology.' By its ! t aid we learn the history of this earth on I 1 which wo live—the details of its build- ! ( ing and the story of the development of j life upon it. I, "Paleontology is the basis of geolog- I c ical science. It has elevated mining j c from mere guesswork to the status of j j exact knowledge. All the work of the | 0 mining engineers of the world depends I upon it. The most valuable minerals j are sought for and discovered by the study of the rock formations, which can only be traced by their fossils. All the i coal in the United States is mined by 1 Tuch means. Many beds of iron are ir like manner related to the sedimentarj £ rocks. All the lead of lowa and Mis- \ eouri and the silver of Colorado are ob- • tained from rocks whose bearing veins and lodes are traced by the fossils they , contain. Thus you will perceive that I in great measure the riches of th- s.irti. . are derived from and civilizav. z im pends upon paleontology. "Paleontology is rec crized ss tie basis of all the geological surveys Europe and Asia. Next after paleont '.- 5 ogy in point of importance comes the study of the chemistry of rocks, and 1 after chemistry 'lithology'—that is, t) • study of the crystals of rocks—is to be - considered. Incidentally an interesting and valuable contribution to science is - afforded by studying the animals and ] plants whose remains are found pre- i served in the rocks. They tell the story j ( of the life history of the world. How | ever, that is only a matter of secondary I, importance. Let me add that every - state geological survey thus far made. ' as well as every geological survey ex t ecuted by the United States, has been j based on paleontology." "A secondary end of paleontology i- ' the elucidation of the past history of I : life upon the earth," said Professor W. !' J. McGee. "The applications and uses of j the knowledge thus acquired are many and varied, and yet they pertain chiefly to pure science, which is now, as it ever j has been, the foundation for the future J ( It is the knowledge of today that enables j > men not only to predict but to control i the events of tomorrow. The simple ex- | periments and speculations of a Watt ! 1 produced the steam locomotive of a later ! generation; the electrical toys of a Merse * and a Henry yielded the telegraph, the telephone and the electric motor. ' "Thus far the cultivation of paleon- ' tology as a pure science has not yielded J its fullest fruit except in its application j < as the basis for the classification of the j rocks of the earth, but there are not (\ wanting conservative students who hold 1 that the study of the course of life in I < the past will indicate the safest direction j ( for future guidance, with respect not J, only to domestic animals and plants I yielding food supplies, but even for man 1 - himself." —Washington Star. What tile Age Demand*. There lias been a good deal said about ' ' the art of growing old gracefully, but ! ' there has perhaps not been enough said ! 1 about the art of not growing old at all. j It is all very well to come to a dignified ! p and gracious antiquity, so that one I i moves in a sort of rarefied atmosphere j' and is handled tenderly as a precious j' relic; but unhappily the age is not of a 1 temper which encouruges this sort of age, and it is impossible to take the place of a relic unless a curator is to be found to take care of it. The tendering of reverence to age is so much out of : , fashion that to do the graceful old age j ■ act in these days is much like trying !' to play Hamlet supported by a company | which insists upon giving "Hnmpty 1 Dumpty" instead. The leading role sim- ! i ply becomes ridiculous and there is an end of the whole thing. There is a real youtlifulness and a j spurious one, and the age being satirical j withal, it is well nigh impossible to palm I off the one of theHe for the other. The j children of today aro very keen to detect j the difference lietween the real and the ; spurious, and it is of no use to offer them |, anything but the genuine article. The j , rising generation is pitiless and it does not take the smallest pains to cover its j contempt for this evasion of the doom ot advancing age. It demands the genuine ! thing and it scoffs openly at anything else.—Boston Courier. A Clever Summer Girl. Girls as a rule have an aversion for 1 mathematics, but occasionally one is 1 found who is able to distinguish herself J in this difficult study. Old Orchnrd beach has just such a girl this year and she applies her knowledge in a most practical and interesting manner. With | the knowledge of how much a young I man weighs as a foundation, this bright miss can tell at a glance how long his I arm is, how much pressure it can apply to the square inch, how slowly he can walk on a lovely moonlight evening, j how strong a hammock will safely hold j their combined weights, the length of j his step In dancing, the power of his j stroke in swimming and many other | useful facts.—Bangor Commercial. > TURF TOPICS. Captain S. 9. Brown has about com pleted his new half mile track near Uniontown, Pa. All the Brownsville farm racers will be trained on it. C. W. Williams Bays 35-pound sul kies are too light. They tremble too much, and the thills are so light they ilon't go steady around the turns. Rockbottom, pacing stallion, record 8:20, won eighteen races without losing one, and made the best record ever made on a half mile track in Tennessee. Lord Rosslyn and Colonel North have arranged a match between Buccaneer and Nunthorpe, to run a mile and a quarter at even weights for $5,000 a side. Peter De Lacy, the New York book maker, says that all the race tracks in the country cannot prevent his commis sioner from placing a commission in a betting ling. Miss Warnetta Grimes, the fifteen year-old daughter of G. Grimes, of Terre Haute, drove the pacing horse Riley a half mile with a running mate in 1:05)£ at the Bloomington races. There is a sensational yearling pacer in training at Hudson River Stock farm. She was sired by Favorite Wilkes, dam by General Benton, and has paced a quarter in over a slow track. Racing authorities in Australia will j not allow any horse to start for a stake ! or purse after his tail has been banged j or docked. They claim that this rule is in the interests of humanity on account j of flies and mosquitoes. STAGE GLINTS. Edwin Royle, the author of "Friends," ■ is believed to be the first resident of Salt ; Lake City to win fame as a playwright. Celie Ellis, who appears to be equally at home in opera and comedy, will play the part of Mrs. Horton in the perennial "Dr. Bill." So far from returning to the stage, Mrs. Mary Anderson-Navarro will spend autumn in S.vtland and the winter TV ter.-.:. r." re of the new plays :t no sensor. wjl have as joint stars rv: :r:mert can scarcely be dis- 1 M'.rrr r. . leading support in her initial -r.rr.r.- tour in "My Official Wife" will be ' niter H. Brinker nud Mildred Meredith. One of the stars of the season of 1893-4 will be Jessie Bartlett Davis, one of the principal members of the Bostonians, i who will then head a first class operatic j organization of her own. Almost every farce comedy on the road next season will have as its bright I particular feature that erstwhile nov- j elty, the widow's dance, which has been I done to death in New York city. If the imported plays and adaptations which the great New York managers now have on hand should all prove suc cessful, American dramatists would have nothing to do for several years. RAILROAD JOTTINGS. A new roundhouse is being built for the Lehigh Valley road at Rochester, ! N. Y. General Traffic Manager W. F. Berry, of the Boston and Maine, announces the j appointment of M. T. Donovan as gen- i eral freight agent. Express trains in Russia rarely travel faster than twenty-two miles an hoar. I These are very slow expresses indeed, I yet a railway guard avers that the fast- j est trains are always the safest. Pennsylvania, Lehigh and Eastern was reorganized in Philadelphia. D. A. j Easton, of New York, was elected presi dent. The road is to be 109 miles long, | extending from Tomhicken, Pa., to Port j Jervis. The incorporators of the new Pine i Bluff and Eastern are F. M. Gillette, New York; 11. E. Martin, Stuttgart, Ark.; John M. Taylor, A. V. Stafford and John O'Donnell, Pine Bluff, Ark. The general manager of the company is A. V. Stafford. With two cars moro than the famous special train carried on Sept. 4, 1891, when it made the great run between New York and Buffalo, the Empire State express on the New York Central made the run from Albany to Syracuse, 148 miles, in 157 minutes. AROUND THE THRONES. Queen Liliuoklina, of the Sandwich Islands, is the patron of a temperance coffeehouse in her capital city. Qneen Victoria is surrounded by a cor don of detectives as many as those about the person of his czarship of Rns bin. j Tlio emperor of Annam is only twelve years old and an inveterate cigarette | smoker. He is a studious and serious | little boy, with a lingering fondness for ; the childish toys that the French gov ! eminent sends him for amusement. 1 At the last court ball given by the queen regent of Spain over 4,IKK) invita tions were issued and the whole affair was a more than brilliant one, even at the stately court of Spain. The value of the Jewelry worn is estimated ut sev eral million dollars. The Empress Eugenie spends much of her time in writing up her memoirs of the imperial court, which will not be published until after her death. Tho ivork will be of vast interest if Eugenie will permit herself to speak of the men and things which made the Napoleon era BO famous. FACTS WORTH KNOWING. The revolving pistol was tho invention : of Colt in 1830. j Tho steam fire engine was the work of j Ericsson in 1830. i The steam printing press was invented by Richard Iloe in 1842. j The first European colony founded in J America was that of Virginia, settled i by an English company in 1007. . —————— ' i HE WAS WELL BROKEN. They Had a Dispute, but He Did the Square Thine. ' They were certainly a very likely and i respectable looking young couple, and \ they were as loving and tender toward | each other as though they were not yet J married. The probabilities are that in the early part of June, or, at the great est, not longer than the middle of May, J they were made one and inseparable, and on this particular occasion they Were to <& parted for a few brief hours for the first time since their marriage t day. At any rate, they were at the West J Shore station very early in the morn ing, and the appearances indicated that the young wife was going home to spend the day. "You surely will not miss the train tonight?" he inquired for the fifth or sixth time. "Oh, no," she assured him solemnly and impressively. "If you should I would just about go wild," lie declared. "So l %hould I," she re plied. "Well, then, you must be sure and not miss it," he repeated, with a : scared look in his eyes. "No, I cer tainly must not," she said, with an earnestness that carried conviction I with it. I Then she continued, "You will find j mo a real nice seat, won't you, dear?" | "Yes, I will get you a seat all by your self," he said, with an assurance that I meant that if he shouldn't hajqien to find a vacant seat in the car somebody j would be thrown out of the window to make room for his birdling. "And you : will not be afraid to kiss me goodby ' right in the coach, will you?" she in quired, looking tenderly into his eyes. "Oh, I guess I'd better kiss you here, be fore we get into the car. People al ways stare so," he answered evasively. "But I like to have you kiss me the last thing," she pouted, "and I don't care how much people stare, do you?" "N-no," he replied. "But I thought it might be unpleasant for you. I guess I'd better kiss you in the depot before Iwe go out." "Well, if you are ashamed of me, probably you hatl," she flashed. "I didn't think you would l>e ashamed of me so soon," and her lips trembled. "I am not ashamed of you, my dear," he began, "only I thought that there might be some coarse persons in the cur that would make fun of us if I should kiss j you goodby there." ! "I'd like to know what thut is but be ing ashamed of me!" she exclaimed. "I just don't care a snap whether you ever kiss me at all or not! I think yon havo no business to treat me so, and I don't | care if I do miss the train tonight." | "Settle it! Settle it!" shouted a voice over in the other corner, where a drowsy drummer was stretched out with his head on his grip and his legs over the end of the seat. "Kiss her in both places or else let me!" And tho young people walked out on the platform and around j the other side of the building. When the train came fifteen minutes later he walked right into tho car and found her a seat, anil then bent down and gave her a smack that sounded like the blowing out of a cylinder head. As the train moved away the drummer turned around and said: "I congratulate you, young lady. You've got him well broke."— | Utica Observer. It Mhilo Him Strong. j "I like this warm weather," remarked I the humorous young man to a slip of a girl; "it makes me strong." j "I thought it had a weakening effect," she said. I "Possibly, on some," he responded, with a lurking grin, "but not on me. For example, the iceman left 600 pounds of ice in front of our store this morning, right where the sun was hottest, and I walked out and carried it in without the slightest effort." "You don't say!" she exclaimed. "True as preaching," and he grinned again; "but it was about three hours after the man left it, and I had to pay for 475 pounds that had run off into the J gutter."—Detroit Free Press.

I Farowelll (Plunges.)— Life. UPPER LEHIGH NOTES. Christ Verklot, Sr., of Wilkes-Barre, was circulating among friends here last week. | Charles Sutton, who has resided here I for many years, has removed his family to Sydney, N. Y. framps are getting to be numerous in this place ot late. The majority of them are going under the guise of Homestead strikers. The racket works well for an j early morning meal. Some of our base ball boys, it is said, I ;\ re ffobig to look for faster company in the base ball line next year. If they I take our advice they'll practice catching real flies. A large number of our people attended I the funeral of Mr. Martin, who died in Jermyn, Lackawanna county, but for merly resided in Lattimer, j Neil Gallagher, of Jermyn, visited his : parents in South Heberton last week. Patrick Murray, who is now working at Providence, Lackawanna, county, visited his family here yesterday. A continual stream of people could be seen passing here almost every morning for the last two weeks in search of the briar patches to pick blackberries. Never before were so many of these berries picked, and in almost every in stance were used to make wine. Some startling fish Btories are being told here of late. Some of them could be swallowed and some more of them have to be quartered before they go down. P- M. Evans, of Stockton, was visiting his brother Joe here last week. All violations of the fishing laws are noticed by the game club in this vicinity of late. It is a go-as-you-please at pres ent. Even dynamite is being used. 'I his being Labor Day all the works of this company are suspended. Edward Boyle, of Harkness, Kansas, is visiting his brother here, D. J. Boyle. ,-A. new or K®nization to bo known as the I licker Club, is likely to be a realitv hero in the near future. Next Saturday evening the 'farriers will resume their meetings after a vaca tion of four weeks. HIGHLAND DOTS. Ben Davis, an old resident of this place, moved his family and household effects to Stockton last week. Neil J. Ferry, of Harwood, was among the visitors here on Thursday. Misses Ilattie Pettit and Lizzie Boyle are 011 an extended visit to Philadelphia. Pat Murrin had his foot badly sprain ed on Thursday. Work here is going on at the rate of three days a week. The boys spend j their time playing cards, which to say i the least is not a very profitable pastime. ! To-day being Labor Day all the works are idle, and many of our young folks propose to spend the afternoon and j evening at the picnic in Freeland. When the two delegates came home from the county convention 011 Tuesday evening one of them felt so jubilant that he set up a keg of beer for the boys in honor of the ticket. The boys did the | square thing with the keg, and in a short time were engaged in singing, dancing, recitations and speech-making. He can be the delegate to the next county con vention—so the boys say. Some of our residents are heart and soul in the present campaign. Orators ! are numerous and the speeches made ! are, to say the least, entertaining and instructive. Til 1 eloquent appeals that are made by John Mc for the ticket car- ! ry conviction with them. Keep it up ! John. Lewis Landmesser, of Ilazleton, visit- ! Ed his friend, William and Jas. Oliver, on Wednesday. T. Wackley is suffering at present' from a very sore hand. Miss Mary A. McGeady has returned home from Wilkes-Barre, where she has been visiting. John White, who had the misfortune to have a nail run into his foot sometime ago while at work, is slowly improving. Mr. and Mrs. Huyo celebrated the fifth anniversary of their wedding last week. Many of their friends who were present congratulated them and wished them a continuation of the prosperity of the past five years. Ed. Quinn, who has been for some time on the sick list, is able to be about again. DRIFTON ITEMS. William Gillespie has been laid up for several days with a sprained knee. Frank Iliggins will soon be able to attend to his usual occupation, after an illness of six weeks. Ilarry Huntzinger, of Ilazleton, has been spending a few days here among friends. Charles Melley, of Lansford, was here visiting friends yesterday. John May, M. D„ of New York, is visiting friends here for a few days. John B. Cunningham and Miss Ada Rowlands, both of this place, will be I married in St. James' church on Wednes day evening. Miss Mamie Walters has been on the sick list for several davs last week. After being idle the two latter days in last week, to-day being Labor Day, we are combelled to work. Legal holidays are all right if it is convenient for the company to observe them, but in this case it seems the legislature didn't mean it when they enacted this law, or else in the company's judgement it is of little importance whether it did or not. The company is the lawmaker here. Some of our hunters have already taken to woods in search of game. The game is of the small order that is in season now, lout the majority of our hunters welcomes a shot at anything from a humming bird up. Mr. Laub, who is a member of the governor's staff, is visiting at the resi dence of Lewis A. Sunmacher. JEDDO NEWS. Last Tuesday was pay day here. All were satisfied as none of the employes of this place expect to compete with the Goulds or Vanderbilts in wealth. What is the matter with our drum corps of late? Boys, wake up and let the people know you are alive yet. The majority of our young people went to Drifton last week to attend a water melon party. Each and everyone en joyed the party, but were a little sur prised when pumpkins were served in stead of melons. Work on the new breaker, No. 5, is progressing slowly. It will be ready for operation about November 1. All the collieries here are idle to-day on account of Labor Day. Joseph Jacko has returned from a trip through Kansas and other western states. The boys who aro sole owners of the club room are talking of forming a de bating society for the winter months. Peter Mcllugh is spending a few days with friends in Mauch Chunk.

Miss Ellen Shovlin, of Preeland, was a visitor here last week. A child of Philip Brislin, of the bor ough, was serionsly ill last week. Mike Ferry, a former resident of this place, was here among friends for a few hours yesterday. John Boden buried a child in Ilazle ton last week. John Coll, who has been suffering from blood poisoning, caused by being cut in the mines some time ago, is able to be around again. School Director Timony spent Satur day evening and Sunday with friends in Ilazleton. POWDERLY ON THE DEAL. (Continued from l'age 1.) from the retailers, and in turn the trade of the retailers is withdrawn from the wholesaler. Debts remain unpaid, cre ditors are becoming impatient, and soon the wholesaler will come down on the retailer who owes for goods long since given out on credit. The retailer in turn will look to the consumer for his money, and if the consumer lias a little property it will be sure to go under the sheriff's hammer. These are the results of the Beading combine. All of this is due to the fact that we have cowradly public officials who dare not offend king monopoly by living up to their oaths of office Did we not hear Governor Patti son excusing himself for not moving against the Reading combine in these words: A writ of I/WJ uvirraiifo would be an arbitrary proceeding that would prove furtile, I tlilnk. It means, speaking In popular lunguage, that the courts would be naked to declare the charters of Beading, of Lehigh and of Central Now Jersey forfeited. Hundreds of millions of securities—stocks and bonds—would become without authority of law if the writ were suc eessful. Yes, hundreds of millions would be in peril. Widespread disaster would be wrought. Innocent holders, not merely capitalists, but small investors—trust funds, widows and orphans—would be the sufferers. How can a man, unless he is himself a stockholder and director in the Read ing, know whether widows are the holders of stocks of that concern? If he does know it, is he not aware that honest stocks should be able to withstand an assault on a dishonest combination form ed for the express purpose of robbing other widows as well as the public generally? Did not this man see at the time that he uttered these words that hundreds of workingmen were being discharged in the interest of that dis honest combine? Were not they as dear to him us the stockholders of the Read ing in whose behalf he slumbered while the combine swallowed the state? Let the stockholders of the Reading hold up their shares of stocks, and it will be seen that for every one of Gover nor Pattison's widows, who would be a sufferer if he brought the robber com bine to terms, a hundred workmen were discharged and deprived of the means of earning a living. For a few alleged widows and stockholders, the governor of Pennsylvania allows a merciless and conscienceless combination to trample the constitution of the state under foot, discharge workmen by the thousand, and run up the price of coal on millions who must warm themselves by the aid of anthracite, Widows who are wealthy enough to buy railroad stocks are better off by far than workmen who do not earn money to buy bread. Gomplaint was made to the governor of Pennsylvania just as soon as it became known that the combine was formed— February 19. He turned the matter over to Attorney-General llensel, who went through the farce of giving a hear ing to complainants and, later on, enter ed some sort of proceedings. Where the proceedings were entered is not now known to any but the state department, and "it does violence to our knowledge of human nature to expect" that ho was at all sincere in his pretensions of opposi te the combine. Long after Pennsyl vania was requested to act, the officials of New Jersey, from governor to Chan cellor McGill, took the matter in hand, and, as a result of their work, the deal is declared illegal, an injunction is granted and the combination must not continue to operate in New Jersey. What was possible there could have been done more easily in Pennsylvania, for the constitution of this state is plain and unequivocal in its opposition to such acts us were contemplated by those who consolidated the railroads in question. The New York Sun called Sam Sloan, the president of the Delaware, Lack awanna and Western Railroad, an anarchist because ho would not allow the other railroads running into Buffalo to make a cat's-paw of him in handling their freight during the btriko. What has that paper to say of Mr. McLeod for expressing himself in these words: The injunction will have nu more effect than if it htnl been directed uguinst the Sioux Indians. If this 18 not anarchy, what is it? Judge McGill has given his decision. It is the law until reversed by Home higher court or law. Where does McLeod get his authority to set it aside after the manner of a Sioux Indian? If he acts as an Indian, will he he dealt with as the Indian would? These are questions for all the people to examine into and act upon. Keep your eyes on McLeod and the Heading manipulators; see that they bow to the mandates of the court or go to prison as other criminals do. If it becomes necessary to engage counsel to prosecute McLeod for contempt, how many will subscribe to a fund to defray the cost of trial? Let us no longer allow law, justice, right and manhood to be trampled on by such men as assert that they stand in relation to law as the Sioux Indian does. McLeod wanted law at Buffalo; let us give him enough of it in Pennsylvania. X. V. Powpgapy, Don't Miss This! For if you do you will lose money by it. WE NOW BEGIN Neuburger's Annual Clearing Sale.
