If it was fast it was fast, and if it w isn’t quite so fast it was a little slower. That’s all you can make ot it. “Did I over have a fast run myself j Yes, I did, but I don’t like to tell about it for fear you’ll think I'm stretching things. I never stretch. I despise this lyin’ that’s gettin’ to bo so common, but It you want to hear a good, straight, matter oMact tale of actual experience, I can tell it to you. I was running a freight on the Burlington, Was going West one after noon with nothing but a caboose. Had orders to ‘run wild.’ Got a little ways out from Burlington when sunset came, and on goio’ out to light the headlight my fire man found no oil in the lamp. Came back to the lender, and to our surprise there wasn’t an ounce ot illuminating oil aboard. There wasn’t an extra bit iu the caboose, either. “ ‘Here’s h fro,’ says I, ‘out on the mail and no oil. It’s against th* rules to run alter sunset without a headlight. If we go on we’ll he discharged for disobeying orders, If we don’t go on we’ll be bouno ed for our carelessness in starting out on a run in that shape and failing to go through.’ “‘Yes, it’s a bad go,’said my fireman, ‘but I know a way out o’ tho hole,’ “ ‘Hua ?’ says I, «*Ru t out.’ says lie. ‘Yes, I mean it. The sun is just setting. We haven’t any oil aboard, but we’ve a big lot of tuel, no load and an albflied good locomotive. It won’t be sunset in (Jounsil Bluff* lor a long time yet.’ “At that ho lookad up at mo and I at him. Our eyes met. He did not flinch a bit. “‘Do yon mean it Dave?” says I, “For answ. r lie grabbed his shovel and. began piling in the coal on a firo already very hot I squared myself down in try seat, pulled her buck and opened her up In five minutes she was clear baek and as wide open ns she could Ret. Dive was to do the rest with Lie shovelin,’ “Well, sir, whenever we’d strike an up grade It would begin to grow too dark, and I’d shout to Dave tor more steam. But when we came ton down grade again, the air would lighten up. and sometimes we could almost see the sun. Just as we cut through the hills on the briuk ot the Missouri valley, it grew so dark that I shouted to Dave that we’d have to give it up. Lei her go,’ he replied; ‘wait till we strike the valley.’ “Bure enough, »n two minutes vre shot down into the valley an’into the sunshine. Over by Orr aha the red sun was sittin’ low down close the Nebraska hills, but ws could see him just as plain as day. We had kept the dark behind us all the way across the State ol lowa.” —Pock’s Sun, A WONDERFUL METAU Aluminum is the most plentiful of all metals. The world contain* ten times as much of it as of iron. Every clay bank is an aluminum mine. It can take the place of almost every other metal, and largely tbat of wood also. It is the strongest metal known, being more than three tuns to the square inch stronger than the best s “el. It is three times as rigid as the best of bronze, and a cannon made of it would be lighter and far stronger than the best now made. It seems al most indestructible, as bather air, water, salt nor acids have th; slightest effect up on it. It is - he best conductor of heat and electricity known, and a telegraph wire made of it might be as fine as a thread mid last practically tor-ver. Strangely enough, with all these properties it is lighter than many kinds of wood, as a cubic foot of it weighs only 100 pounds, while iron weighs 451 pounds. It is suit able for anything the common metals are /VnacortCM W, TT« 9 RsitiircUty, Keptejnber 1D 9 T now used for, from the smallest wheel ot a watch to a ponderous steam engine. Why is it not in more general use? Sun ply because thus fir the expense of ob taining the metnl from the ci ty beds ex ceeds its commercial value. Bit artisans ami chemists are not easily discourage 1 No doubt means will be discovered for its easy extraction, and then the iron age will have passed into history, as that of stone and bronste have already done. A. COFFEE DRUNKARD. “What u bright, eyed man.” said a r - porter who leaned against the cashier s desk of a restaurant near the public buildings one day last week. The naan in question had just paid a ten-cent check aud slipped out of *be door with a jerky movement and a swinging of the cane he earned, which decidedly en dangered the peoples peace. “Brighteycd? Yea; said the cashier “he’s a coffee drunkard.” “ What’s a cnflee-drunkard?” “A man who comes in here four times in two hours, as that man has this morn in" and dees every morning, and takes a halt pint of coffee every tw» e, is a ooftee drunkard. Bright eyes! Well I should say so. That mun,s condition all the time is the same ns that of a rnnn who is getting over a big “hatter” I mean his nerves are up in ‘O,’ his muscles are all a quiver, and his mental vision is abnorm ally clear He is living at a 2:08| rate.” “Why does he do it?” “Has to. Must have a brace. Used to Jriuk rum. Rad to quit that and now does worse. Re never sleeps they tell m« “Do you know many such?” “At least half a dozen.”— Philadelphia Press. A Tootiii.kss Timb Comiko. The American tooth, the dentists tell us, is something fast disapoaring. What is to take- its place they leave to conjec ture. Whether a toothless race is on its way or whether a now animal is to be involved from the present human creature on tills continent is perhaps an open question. Whatever it is that may come to puss the fancy recoils before the pros-, pect. Children of 13 years often have SIOO worth of gold in their mouths, oth* ers needing as much quite as badly hut unable to afford the outlay. Chil dren of to often wear complete sets of false teeth, and other children innumnm- ble have teeth that are decayed befon tbey penetrate the gums, and that have to be filled as soon as they are in sight the crumbling material and thin enamel, even then giving but little to work upon. At first it was thought all this r< su'ted irom ignorance, from candy eating, from want of care and cleanliness. But it is now understood that in most cases the fault is inherent in the quality of the tooth, and the only remedy so far suggested is a diet calculated with especial reference to tin* making of sound bone. This is supposed to be found in coarse grains and food of similar character, and the most confirmed beef eater ahte yields to the superiority at this point of the little kernel of gm n that feeds his beef itself;—lliti'p* l s Bn* zer. A Slave Trade in Youno Umifl Car ried on IN ifUSSIA. The results of the Pall Mill G vzetteV agitation are risible all over Great Brit ain and the continent. R-oorts r»t ou - rages upon females in France, Germany ami Italy have so increased that the French government has ilistiacted its po lice to exercise additional stringency to ward licenced bouses. In Amsterdam. Rotterdam, Hamburg and other point*, houses of this character h ivc Iwcn visited by the police and all their female initial's have been ordered out unless certilii-'l to be 18 years old or over. Reports via the English consulate at Jassy, on tlo white slave trade bet ween ItouniHnift and other parts of Europe, state that girls gathered together at Jussey are chief'll sent to Prussia, Austria, and Rus*i .. The lending traders’depot is >»t Odens. German girls gathered at the Prussian fiontier ere ( \oorf°d to Riga or Wilna. where Russian merchants have the fir-t opportunity of selection for St Petersburg and Moscow. The next Iv'st paying sta tion is N!ini Novgorod, whence girls arc distridufed between southern Russia and Siberia. The business and hanking men of San Francisco, are becoming alarmed at the 'rales at which the exp rt trade of the Pacific no »st is passing into the control of the Chinese. During the quarter end* ing June 30, 188 5, thfe Chinese exported directly goods amounting to $541,015 ami $43,357 worth of goods wen; ex ported by while agents for the Chinese, making a total of 585,273* The mer chandise exported by whites amounted, to $387,015.58; local busineatT houses sending $74,014.11, and tnrspo-fatie.n companies $103,0J1.57. Thissao.vs that Chinese controlled about three-quarters of the business of that quarter, and is considered bv some to be more fnvo^M c than the actual facts warrant. During the same period of time the Chinese houses shipped $013,507 53 ia treasure to Hongkong. The Bink to Cali fornn t Anglo-C difornian Bank and the Hong ko ig and Shnng l i Banking Corporation shipped over s'.ooo 000 of trs s or daring the same time to Hongkong, During the fiscal year of 18S4-85, the treasure ship ped amounting to $14,730,747; merchan dise in transit, $0,477; mmhnudisv ex ported, $3 20' 100; m kn; a to tal of $18,028,41 i. To this must bo added the treasure carried bv each horns going Chinaman individually. Some authorities state that ninety per cent, of the export tn le to 0 iua is co.i trolled by Ch’ a ucn, the chief i'o n Ie ng flour,which trade is ct’ivly »n their hands.

OBATION OF LI Fa AFTER TREES* INO» A inur.ND residing in Baltimore had hi Ills po»«n-aion a small nl!ig.;tor, which had been sent hun hum Florida. Its habiba tion was a tub partially filled with watery kept out-i'ooij. During one of the cold naps of the past winter, in the night, the water became completely trozeu, imprison ing the reptilo in the ic<'. with but a small portion of bis body protruding therefrom.
