Tin Used In Weighting Silk.
A chemist has recently analyzed a
sample of a silk dress that was sub
mitted to him by a lady. He found
that It contained only a fraction over
28 per cent, of silk, and as much tin
was found in it as that present in
poor tin ores from Cornwall. The tin
occurs in the so-called weighing of the
silk. The chemist states that he at
once realized the fact that the silk
dresses worn by the ladles in London,
taken together, would represent a
Cornish tin mine of very fair quality

Good iwentsi Tome.
As appearance means so much to
the average woman, mentally as -well
as socially, the question often arises,
"Is she justified in aiding or Improv
ing .ture If she sees fitr Many of
our 3 well-known medical men think
that "make-up" is as good a mental
tonic as anyone can take and greatly
advise Us nsp. especially for the girl
who has some slight personal defect
a scar, a poor complexion or blood
leas lips, for the knowledge of her de
fects makes .her shy and oftentimes

Truly yours,
And indeed there is something to talk
about. Where there's smoke there's
fire. Things are happening at The Re
public. Its new editor, Horatio W.
Seymour, has bis own ideas about mak
ing a newspaper. And Republic read
ers seem to think they are pretty good
uW, U.' Thy Uckled with tba
crisp, spicy little paragraphs of editorial
comment which aprear each day; they
are delighted with the good, sound,
militant Democracy old - fashioned,
Jeffersonian Democracy and the merci
less exposure of Republican fallacies
and misrule; they are laughing over
the caricatures and funmaking cartoons;
Omw or intM-Psted in the stories of
strange, novel things that happen in j
manner in which the news in general is
given; they are pleaded wish the new
dress The Republic is wearing clearer
type and more open lines. ,
The enlft;fHi size of The Republic,
its enlarged staff of writers, its enlarged
facilities for obtaining and printing the
news and the liveliest and best editorial
page in the Mississippi Valley are mak
ing The St. Louis Republic the most
talked-of, the most interesting and the
cheapest newspaper, value considered,
to be had by the residents of Missouri
and contiguous territory.

Banks Guarded by Soldiers.
Like the Bank of England, the Ban'k
of France is now guarded evry eight
by soldier, who do sentry duty out
side the building, a watch being like
wise kept inside its precincts. But
within cult recent time the officials
at the French bank resorted to a very
novel method of protecting their bul
lion. This consisted in engaging ma
sons to wall up the doors of the vaults
In the cellar with hydraulic mortar as

until the whole cellar was flooded. A

plunder the Taulta. When tho barjlt
officials arrived next morning the wa

down and the vaults opened. Curt-out1-
