He owned a little paper. And business was bad. He was losing his subscribers. And couldn't get an "ad." So he made a bold announcement, Saying "Here, is something new! Hereafter we will edit ' , As George Washington would do Every column Will be solemn Trfcth, from an unbiased view," And In his next week's issue He told the simple facts. (Some of them as cutting As if told by an ax.) He wrote of social doings In unembellshed style. And public men he mentioned. Also their stock of guile. Very truthful, . Was this youthful Editor with winning smile. That was the only issue On the Washingtonian plan. Also the final labor Of the honest minded man. His paper is not running, Since it started such a buzz; But the editor is running Or, when last observed, he was "He was chasing. He was racing Just as Aguinaldo does.

Tommy At kins was the name of a sentry who, when the Europeans in Lucknow were flying- for the Residency, from- the mutineers, refused to leave his post, and so perished . After that it be came the fashion to speak of a conspicuously heroic soldier in the fights with the rebels as "a regular Tommy Atkins."

The location of the magnetic pole, which is, of course, the spot at which the needle dips to 90 degrees, does not in any sense imply contiguity to the geo graphical pole, but it is inter esting to remember that where as Sir James Ross it 1842 only succeeded in reaching a point where the needle dipped high, Borchgrevink has, during his Antartic summer, touched the precise location of the magnet ic pole. At Orange, New Jersey, Sat urray last, a remarkable experi ment was made at the labora tory of Thomas A. Edison, when a piece of iron was melted in five seconds. Louis Dreyfus, of Erankfort-on-the-Main, who is the agent of Goldschmidt's Chemische-Themo Industrie, of Ees sen, Germany, showed Mr. Edison this new process for at taining heat in an almost in credibly short time by the com bustion of a certain chemical compound, which the inventor keeps a secret, used in connec tion with powdered aluminum. Mr. Dreyfus placed half a cup ful of the chemical in a crucible, covered it with a small quantity of powdered aluminum, and then placed a wrench about half an inch thick and 6 long in the crucible. Touching a match to the compound, Mr. Dreyfus stepped back, and the mixtune blazed up furiously. In five seconds the wrench was all melt ed. It is estimated that the heat evolved in the process was 3,000 degrees centigrade, hither to considered impossible to reach. The value of the process is expected to be shown in weld ing together steel rails. The secretary of the interior may permit, under regulations to be prescribed by him, the use of timber and stone found upon such reservations, free of charge by bona fide settlers, miners, I residents and prospectors, for minerals, for firewood, fencing, building, mining, prospecting and other domestic purposes, as may be needed by such per sons for such purposes; such timber to be used within the state or territory, respectively, where such reservations may be located. This provision is lim ited to persons residenf in for est reservations who have not a sufficient supply of timber or stone for their own claims or lands for the purposes, enumer ated, or for necessary use in de veloping the mineral or other natural resourses of the lands owned or occupied by them. Such persons, therefore, are permitted to take timber and stone from public lands in the forest reservation under the terms of the above quoted, strictly for their individual use on their own claims or lands owned or occupied by them, but not for sale or disposal or use on other lands, or by other persons; provided, that where the stumpage exceeds one hun dred dollars, application must be made to and permission given by the department. It appears that the forest officials who have been preventing the people liv ing on the reservations from getting fire wood did so without authority. , Posts from five to seven inches in diameter, firmly planted in the ground at the corners and ends of a mining claim, and standing not less than five :eet above ground are "permarent monuments," within the mean ing of Rev. St. 2324, requh ing all records of such claims to contain such a description, of the claim by reference to some natural object or permanent monument as will identify the claim, and a recorded notice, which, in -addition to a reference to such posts, also gives the gen eral direction and distance of the claim from a lake and a river, is a sufficient compliance with the statute.
