MANY USES FOR PAPER.
Inventive Yankees Have Devised Some Peculiar Modes of Em ploying It. We have had the golden age and the Iron age and vurlous other ages, but the present will probably be known as the wooden or paper age. Paper dress material masquerading as silk is the latest invention in the line, and threatens to drive the silkworm out of "business. Spruce sawdust, cotton or Jute waste and alcohol are put into the machine and come out at the other end shining, delicately colored, rustling silks, suitable for the most fastidious lady's gown. Of course, this paper silk doesn't wear so well as the real fabric, but think how much cheaper it will be! Enthusiastic paper manufacturers say the new woman and the new man will dine off paper dishes. It is not improbable that the liat of the future will be an indestructible paper affair, impervious to Are or water. Over in Paris any enterprising milliner will be able to show you stylish bonnets and hats made entirely of paper, frame, trimming, ornaments and all. Parasols of paper do not seem to have been thought of yet, but satchels and trunks of paper are common enough. The pa per trunk, despite Its frail sound, is the despair of the baggage smasher. It refuses to smash. So do paper car wheels. They have been in use for years on some of the most important railroads in this coun try. It must not be supposed that the wheels are made entirely of paper. This material only forms the interior shell. Having been subjected to terrific pressure, it is molded and firmly bolt ed to the outer rim, which is of steel. Greater durability and lightness are claimed for these wheels, but don't let the idea of lightness lead you to get under one. If you do, you may possi bly have use for one of the paper cof fins which are being turned out at wholesale by a firm at Westfleld, Mass. The railroad train of the future is likely not only to have paper wheels, but to run on paper rails. These are made entirely of paper, and are formed in molds under great pressure. They have been used to some extent in Rus sia nnd Germany, and are said to be free from many of the defects of the ordinary steel rail. Taper horseshoes are another Euro pean Invention. Among the advan tages claimed for them is that they maintain a rough surface, enabling the horse to get a good grip on the smooth pavements. German paper makers have put on the market a sub stance called "papier sculptor," which Is used instead of clay for- modeling. It is simply paper pulp kept soft enough to be worked. Papiermache ceilings nnd wall decorations are very fashionable. They may look like leath er or brocade or a thousand and one liaudsomo embossed effects, but they are wood pulp, just the same. The house-furnishing departments in the big shops furnish interesting evi dence of the extent to which paper en ters into ordinary life. Paper pails and tubs are appreciated by the suburban dweller who hasn't "set" tubs. They are much lighter and easier to keep clean, as well as cheaper than the old style. So is the much-abused cuspidor. Peach baskets, berry baskets and but ter boxes are made of paper, and al most everything under the sun—salt, which used to come in pretty blue and white bags; oatmeal, crackers, Ice cream, candy, shoes, corsets, dresses is sent home in a paper box. In Japan, they say. some folks live in paper houses, and in this country paper boats are in use. Nor must the necessary 6ewer pipe be forgotten. Paper pipes for carrying water, steam or electric ity are not uncommon. As conduits for electricity they are considered safe, even though the wire be not insulated. Pioneer Bank Treasurer.

THE OLD CHURCH BELL, Iligh up o'er tho heads of the peoplo That pass like vague ships on the street, It hangs in its home in tho steeple, That throbs with tho wind's rhythmic beat; What heeds it tho world or its noises ? What recks it of traffic's loud din? Of tears, or tho clamor of voices That speak of tho light hearts within? Enough that its duty is ringing In every condition of weather, Enough that its mission is bringing The spiritual household together; Enough that it strikes for tho hours That speed in a ne'er-ending chain, Aud chimes over nuptial flowers. And tolls for the funeral train. Enough that it speaks to the mothers lu clear, unmistakable tones, And fathers and sisters and brothers, From all the earth's populous zones; Enough that it brings to tho altar Tho ones who have strayed from the truth, As well as the weak ones who falter 'Mid trials unknown in their youth. So there, while the pale stars aro marching, And rivers roll on to tho sea, And heaven's blue vault is o'er-arohiug, The bell in its belfry will be; And then, when its mission is ended; And turned is tho last buftal sod, Its echoes full-toned will bo blended With trumpets that call us to God. —Alfred E. llostelley, in Now York Observer. AN ANNIVERSARY.

V A AVesecured board ' in a private family, and lived in this way until the birth of our bahv boy, who came to gladden our hearts ten months before the opening of my story. Soon after this important event we rented a cosey little cottage in the suburbs* of town, and after securing the service of iny old ldnck ".Mammie," settled down in an humble establish ment of our own. Wo had lived thus about six mouths, when tho third anniversary of our maringe rolled around. Wo decided to celebrato tho occasion by inviting Adair's best friend, Oscar Davenport, aud his wife (who had been a school mate of my own), together with our minister aud his wife, to a 5 o'clock dinner; after which we anticipated a delightful evening together. > Old Mammie and I were in a (luttor of excitement over tho prospects of giving our first entertainment, and we spared no pains in arranging to have everything served iu our best possible Rtylo. In order that this might be done I engaged tho services of a waiter from ono of tho hotels, and ho was to present himself at the cottage at noon. Tho morning of tho third dawned cloudy and cold. A thick mist filled tho air and the clouds threatened a heavy rain before noon. As I kissed Adair goodby at 8 I had many fore bodings of a sad termination to my anticipated day's pleasure. •Tlist as tho clock struck 12 the door bell rang, nnd as Mammie left the ice cream freezer to answer it she said, with a sigh of relief: "Well, dat waiter's on time, nnd l's pow'fnl glad on it, 'caze turniu' dis here crank ain't no easy job, I tell you. He sho' is welcome." In a f3w minutes sho returned, fol lowed by tho boy James, and handed me a note which had just been left by a scrvaut from the rectory. Oil open ing it I read as follows: "DEAR FUIEND— Mr. Clarke was takon sick suddenly in tho night. Early this morning I called in our physician, who pronounced his case to bo moro serious than we at first supposed. He will require careful nursing for several days, so it will bo ■impossible for us to bo with yon to night. We send our best wishes for a pleasant evening aud for many happy returns of this day. Your friend, "ANNIE CLARKE. " Just then tho rain cams down in a steady patter, and with a sigh which gave expression to my disappoint ment, I went over to tho window ami ,stood gazing out into tho gloomy 6treet. "Come, now, Miss Cressio, honey, don't bo a 'dulgin' in no sieh sor'lul thoughts. Jist turn your mine back fer three years, and think uv how happy you was dat night as you wont er ridin' up to do ehu'eh do'. Mars 'Dare'll be hero presently, and ef'n de company don't come ho and de baby'll be here, and Wt;'li 'joy our own selves jist as much a3 ef'il dey all had been here." I saw much wisdom in Mammie's remarks, nnd immediately resolved that I would not allow the disappoint ment to cast a shadow over tho third anniversary of my wedding day, and began a romp with baby, who sat tied in his high ohair by tho table amusing himself with the big kitchen spoon. Thus some timo passed pleasantly away, when James announced that the table was ready for my inspection. The afternoon was now far ad vanced, and after changing my dress 1 seated myself in tho little parlor, with .baby asleep in my arms, anx iously awaiting my husband's return, as I knew he would make every effort to get off from the office at an earlier hour than usual. Presently the wel come sound of his footsteps greeted my ears, nnd soon he stood beside me. "Isn't it too bad," I saidasl tucked baby away on the sofa, "that we should have such a miserable evening for our first effort at hospitality?" "It is, indeed, my little wife, but it is just as well so—a greater disap pointment is jet in store for you. I have received instructious from Mr. Benedict to meet liis partner in the oity to-night on important business for the firm. In order to catch the train I must leave you in half an hour. Dav enport is to accompany me; therefore you need not expect him or his wife." I felt on the verge of a flood of tears, and my face must have given expression to my feelings, for my hus band drew mo close within his arms and said : "Don't give way to those feelings, but listen to mo. I have some good news to tell yon. The property I owned in Marville has at last found a purchaser, and as real es tate has gone up there I received for it S3OOO in cash. Tho money came to me by express this evening, and as I had no time tc go back to the bank, I must trust it to your care for the night." So saying, ho placed the package in my hands. "I shall be in the city only a few hours," he continued,"and will return by the night express, so you may look for me about 2 o'clock in the morning. Don't make up your mind to bo mis erable while I'm gone, but retire early and sleep well, and dream pleasant dreams about how you will spend some of the money you have there." Ho was soon goDe, and I watched him until ho was out of sight; then turn ing from the window, I threw myself into a large armchair before the (ire, and did just what Adair had told me not to do—burst into a flood* of tears. After indulging myself in this fem inine weakness for about twenty min utes I felt equal to the task of break ing the news of grent disappointment to Mammie. When I had told her of Adair's return and departure,her phil osophical turn of mind caused her to remark : "Well, honey, man he 'poses, and God lie desposes! Sbo'ly dey ain't no tellin' what a day'll bring forth ! Here we is done been er work in' all day—fer what? Jist to teach you a lesson in pachunca! and dat you musn't set yer heart on nuffin' in die life ! Well! el'u we wants to git those things put away 'fore dark, we'd bet ter git about it. Jemes you kin jist fold up do table liuen, and put up de silver, and I'll tend to puttin' up de vittles." It took us but a short time to undo tho work which had occupied us all three since noon and after having paid James and dismissed him, I re turned to the parlor whore baby still lay sleeping. As the rain was still falling in tor rents, I resolved to remain down stairs until Mammie had finished her night's work and would bo able to accompany ino up stairs. I have never been a timid woman; but that uight, as I sat alone listeniug to the wind whistle about the house corners and driving tho rain drops furiously against the shutters, a feeling of great uneasiness took possession of me—a strange fore boding of approaching evil. In vain did I endeavor to shako it oft'. When Mammie cumo in we made a tour of inspection to see that the house was securely fastened, and then we ascended tho stairs to my own arpartmeuts. Thanks to Mammie, a bright fire was burning in the grate, and when the lamps were lighted baby opened wido his eyes and announced his intention of keeping awake. At uny other time I should havo been im patient at his obstinate wakefulness, but to-night I gave him all the en couragement he needed. While baby and I engaged in a great romp, Mam mie nodded to us from her seat in the corner. It was twelvo o'clock and still baby seemed not to grow tired. Ileaning forward to place him on the carpet before me, I distinctly heard a noise in tho direction of the bed. Turning my eyes that way I es pied a foot protruding from under the mosquito bar that fell in folds to the floor. My breath almost left me. I felt myself grow weak and fuiut, but som woning all the courage iu iny nature I went on playing with baby. I thought of tho S3OOO which my hus band hud given mo, aud I felt sure that if any one had overheard our conversation at tho timo he gave the money, that person also knew that Adair expected to reach home at 2. It was then nearly 12, and tho robber would soon grow impatient with wait ing, come out from his placo of con cealment and demand of mo the money, nnd, perhaps, murder us all. Some thing must be done, anil done quick ly. After turning over iu my mind many plans of escape from our hidden enemy, 1 decided upon this scheme : "Mammie," I said, "I hear a noiso downstairs at the kitheu window. I believe some one is trying to break into the house. Wake up—get the caudle, aud we'll frightom them oft*. Here is Adair's pistol; you take baby and give me tho candle. I aai not afraid. Now follow mo—but wait! I havp S3OOO about me that Adair left in my keeping, and I must conceal it in this room for fear of accident. I'll just put it on the 6helf in tho closet here until we return." So saying I opened tho closet door aud pretended to hide away tho pack age. Coming out, I closed the door tightly, and, followed by Mammie, went out into the hall, closing iny bedroom door behind me. I then hurriedly whispered to Mammie what I had seen, and bade her take the cau dle and go on down stairs with baby, who still kept up his chatter. I took a stand at the door and listened until I heard the closet door hastily open ; stealthily I turned the bolt of tho chamber door, rushed toward the closet, slammed and lucked the door, at the same time calling to Mammie to return. As the closet had been fitted up for the reception of our silver, given to us as wedding present?, I knew tho lock was strong; and as the burglar had been surprised he had about him DO tools that would enable him to ef fect his escape. Therefore I armed myself with Adair's pistol, and Mam mie and baby and I kept watch over ray prisoner until wo were relieved at 2 o'clock by the arrival of my hus band. Going out into the street, he sum moned a policeman. The burglar was brought out handcuffed and carried away. I was not surprised to recognize the waiter James.—Now Orleans Times- Democrat. Brought to Light. At a general election in England, a candidate personally unknown to tho voters of o certain borough was a9ked by party leaders to stand for it. Ho belonged to a good family, and was a barrister of promise in London. His path to success was open, as tho borough belonged to his party. But when he mounted the platform to address tho electors, after a sentence or two he suddedlv became pale and confused, his eyes fixed on a board op posite ou which was scrawled with charcoal, "Forty pounds!" He stumbled through a short speech, and then hurriedly loft the stand. A few days later he rose to speak in another town, and again the myster ious words written in black on tho wall confronted him. Again ho left tho platform, and that night retired from the contest for tho seat in Parlia ment. Not long afterward he disap peared from public life, and retirod to an English colony where he hid him self on a ranch. The words, it was found, referred to a theft committed in his youth, which he supposed had been forgotten. Alexis Pirou, the French poet and satirist, sought for many years to ob tain a seat among the Forty Immortals in the French Academy. He was rec ognized among the poets of his day, and was confident of his ultimate ad mission, when a vile ode, written when he was a boy, was brought to light, and he knew that the door of the Academy was closed in his face for ever. In both of the great political parties of this country there have been in stances of men eminent in mental abil ity, who have failed to'.receive tho high political honors, because of the shadow of some fault or folly of their earlier days. Behind all the happiness of life, be hind even God's love, there is such a thing as law. "Who breaks it always pays the penalty." God may forgive him, but the lines on his face, the taint in his soul, remain to tell of the vice of his early day*.—Youth's Com panion. Metal Workers of Asia. Among the half civilized peoples of Central Asia are many artistic workers in metals. Ono of these Natious or tribes, the Barates, is famous for in laid work. The Russians call these workmen "Bratskaya Bobnta." They use gold, tin and silver for inlaid work on iron. The art has been practiced by them for thousauds of years, and their skill has been recorded in the ancient folk songs of Asia. A writer describing their work say they ham mer the silver, gold or tin very thiu. Then the part of tho object to bo in laid is made rough with a hummer, tho surface of which is roughened like a file. Templets of birch bark servo to cut the metal iuto tho proper shape, which is laid upou tho heated object and lightly liammored into the rougli surface, then heated to a blue color, aud the inlaid metal is hammered smooth with a polished hammer.— Scientific Amoricau. Write Cliecrlul Letters. Tho popular wouiau does not write doleful letters; she waits till she is in a better frame of mind before begin ning them, for she realizes that there aro burdens enough iu life without addiug to them by inflicting pessimis tic epistles on her friends. If she writes a bitter of condolence it seems to corao from the heart, for if it does not sound that way she will not let its coldness further grieve a bereaved one; and if sho sends con gratulations to a bride or a mother she makes a point of recollecting or looking up some rousing good wishes that have the ring of genuine inter est. One woman drops a fragrant flower in a letter, not to a gushing school girl, but to au old lady or a tirod mother of an exacting family, and by this bit of sentiment—not sentimen tality—keeps her memory green iu tho hearts of her friends.—Now York Herald. The Poison of the Oruithorhynchus. The hind feet of tho oruithorhynch us, "the mole with webbed feet and tho bill of a duck" that puzzed zoo logists so much for a long time, are provided with a solid spur connected with a gland. Havo we here a poison gland? From some apparently trust worthy accounts that have reached him, Mr. Stewart thinks we havo. This gland is at least venomous at a certain season. A dog was wounded by ono of these spurs threo times, and tho symptoms the first time were those of pain and somnolence, but there wore no convulsions-, titubations or tremb ling. Upon the two other occasions, the symptoms were less pronounced, and even null, thus indicating habitu ation. The poison has proved mortal to the dog in four cases, but iu mau the symptoms disappear without caus ing death.—Scientific American. A Primitive Confessional.

Umpire Galvin's decisions in the re cent Chicago-Pittsburg series of ball games have caused a great deal of talk among the "fans" and incidentally has brought out a great many stories about the genial James. One of these re lates to James when he was at the zenith of his fame as a pitcher. All season Galvin bad been twirling in rare form, but his batting, never strong, had been particularly weak. The others used to say that when Jimmy saw a hot one coming across the plate he would shut his eyes and "swipe" at it. The season was drawing to an end and Galvin had made scarcely a hit. It was a critical point in the game, with two out and the bases full, when Gal vin walked to the plate. Every one ex pected him to shut his eyes and fan the air. lie may have closed his eyes when a swift one came toward him, but he didn't fan the air—he caught the ball with the end of his bat and sent a sky scraper far into center. It was a beau tiful hit and gave the fielder a race to the limits, where, as the ball came down, he reached out aud gathered It in—a phenomenal running one-hand catch. Galvin had reached second when he saw the fielder gather in his solitary long hit of the season. He kept on running, straight into the cen ter-fielder's garden and directly for that individual, breathing fire. The player who had gathered in Galvin's only hit saw liim coming, recognized his dan ger and scaled the fence for a safety. Jimmy Galvin never forgave him for catching what was apparently a home run.
