Tiik average etmstrtietion of railroads in the United States during the last twenty years is said to have Wen .VTiMI miles annually, mi that the const met inn last year of fl.0t miles was slightly alHive the nverafrt. indieatinpa healthy, hot a speculative, (frowth.

Her monthly income is s.su. Oihi. She is a stately widow of rears and a famous horsewoman.' The al ovc paniTnph has !een float inf ahoiit the press for the past fifteen years. I f the lady was when it started, she must he ffettm alonf sotiiewhnt lv this time. K of the lxautiful souvenirs the president and Mrs. Harrison lroti?ht home from Talifornia was their invi tation to the lanttct of the T'nion Leapnie club of San Francisco. It is engraved on a (fold plate four and threwjti;irtcrs inches wide, seven ami fine-quarter long- and one-eighth of an inch thick. The plate liears the seal of the state and the American flag" treat ed in colored enamel. The plate is in a handsome cast. Tiik boat that lnire the body of John tVilkes lUnith away from Washington, down the Potomac, has lieeu sold for Si;..tHH. and will lie converted into a Philadelphia coal barge. The lioat is the monitor Saugiis. and she has lain for seventeen years at the Washington navy yard. She ln-ars several huge dents imprinted in her stalwart sides through the force of cannon balls. Her turret also shows several huge dents, as well as the pilot house. At least one person i" three lietwcen the ages of ten and forty years is sub ject to partial deafness. The great majority of cases of deafness are hereditary ami due to the touclose con sanguinity of the parents. Deafness is mitre prevalent amongmen than among women, because the former are more exposed to the vicissitudes of climate. It is thought that telephones tend to bring on deafness when one ear is used to the exclusion of the other. It is characteristic of the grip that it produces dreadful tits of the blues, in which trivial matters seem to darken the patient's whole outlook. Several suicides have liecn attributed to this cause. If the sufferer will pause and reniTt that his business is not really going to the dogs, that his backache is ii d kidney disease, or his loss of memory paresis, but that it is all influ enza and will pass, he will see that there is no sense in cutting off his head to cure his cold. Tiik young emperor of (icrmany now has no less than three thrones. One is the old-fashioned affair of the days of the king of Prussia, another was fur nished for the occasion of the Princess Victoria's wedding, and now he has a third to lie used only when his majesty appears as supreme head of thf ( nitcd f ierman empire. This lat one is erect ed in the White hail of the (ierman M'hloss, and its canopy is of yellow silk and gold brocade, into which the im perial eagle is lieautifully woven. It is not stated which of the three has the softest seat. Katioi k should not be treated as a light matter. Women often say: 4I am perfectly well, only 1 get tired easily." Then yon are not perfectly well. You need rest, care anil possibly medical treatment. Try the rest first nd set vour mind free imm worries and restraints. Do not exact from yourself work which vou do not feel equal to: make it a rule to lie down two hours each afternoon, and go to bed early. Keep this treatment up for three months, with all the out-of-door ife that you feel equal to, and you will realize what rest can do. The tired feeling means that you need rest. Tiik disembodied spirit does not al ways appear in darkness and through a medium. 1 he account comes that in a photograph taken of an old homestead at Webster, Mass., recently appeared something not provided for by the photographer. When the negative was developed there was revealed the face of an aged woman looking out of a window. There was no explanation of this startling appearance, but the face w as recognized as that of the mother of the owner of the house, dead for some time. The window from which the face appears looking was one by which the old lady sat a great deal when alive. , A dentist of Moscow is reported to have discovered a method of supplying the human mouth with false teeth which will grow into the gums as firm ly as natural ones. Dr. Znamensky has performed severa! successful opera tions on dogs as well as human beings. The teeth are made of gutta perch a, porcelain or metal. Holes are made at the root of the false tooth and also up ward into the jaw. The tooth is then placed into the cavity. In a short time a soft, granulated growth finds its way Irom the patient's jaw into the holes in the tooth: this growth gradually hardens and holds the tooth in position. Modern inventiveness seems to be chiefly responsible for the continued peace of Europe. The powers are kept so continuously changing their arma ments in order to keep up with the times that they haven't money enough to go to war with. Epitome of the Week.

Number of Decision Handed Down Notably Due Rejrardmc -Original Pack age" The Powers of Coiigres and of the Several States I nder the Coat sta tion Detlued The Mormon Church Case, F.tc. Washington. May 2. The supreme court of the United States adjourned yesterday until the second Monday in October. A large number of decisions several of them of general importance, were rendered by the court. The most iinfiortant ease decided was that of John M. Wilkerson, shtriff of Shawnee county, Kas., against Charles H. Rahrer. This is one of thd original package cases, and it came to the su preme court on an appeal fron the Western Kansas United States circuit court. Rahrer was the agent at Topeka, Kas.. for a Kansas City (Ma) liquor firm. Last year he offered for sale Iteer and whisky in original packages. Rahnr was arrested for violating the Kansas prohibitory law; but the United States circuit court for Kansas released him on a writ of haWas corpus. Tho Kansas authorities then brought the case to the supreme court on an appeaL The court yesterday reversed the cir cuit court's decree and remands the cause for further proceedings. Chief Justice Fuller, who read the opinion, reviews at length legal opinions War ing on the jurisdiction of congress over the states, anil referring to the original package law which was issued by con gress last year, asks the question "Is the law open to constitutional objec tion?" In considering this query, the chief justice said that by the first clause of section 10 of article 1 of the constitu tion, certain powers are enumerated which the states are forbidden tocxerciso in any event, and by the second clause? certain others, which may W exercised with the consent of congress. As tt those in the first clause, congress cau not relieve from the positive restriction imposed. As to thtise in th second, their exercise may W authorized, and they include the collection of the rev enue from imposts and duties and on imports and exports, by state enact ments, subject to the control of con gress; and a tonnage duty, to the exaction of which only the consent of eongnss is re quired. Beyond this, congress was not empowered to enable the state to go in this direction. Nor could con gress transfer legislative powers to a state nor sanction a state law in viola tion of the constitution: and if it can adopt a state law as its own. it must le one that it would W competent to enact, and not a law passe! in the ex ercise of the police power. In sur rende ring their own power over exter nal commerce the states did not secure absolute freedom in such commerce, but only the pro tection from encroachment affonlctl by confiding its regulation exclusively to congress. By the adoption of tho constitution the ability of the several states to act upon the matter solely in accordance with their own will was ex tinguished and the legislative will of the general government instituted. No affirmative guaranty was thcndiy given to any state of the right to demand, as between it and the others, w hat it could not have obtained Wfon; while the nl ject was undoubtedly sought to W at tained of preventing commercial rela tions partial in their character or con trary to the common intensts. The court yesterday also entered a final decree in the cases of the late cor poration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Rt nn ney ami others, against the I'nited States. The decree in this case, which involves the disposition of property held by the Mormon church, was entered last term to give congress an opportunity of de ciding how the confiscated property should W applied, but as no congn-s-sional action was taken, the court yes tenlay affirmed, with modifications, the decroc of the supreme court of Utah providing that the Mormon church property W devoted to such charitable uses, lawful in their character, as may most nearly correspond to those t which it was originally destined, to le ascertained and defined, unless con gress should otherwise onler. by rcfer ene to a master for due examination and report subject to the approval of the court. The snprcme court of Utah was directed to modify the decree ac cordingly. The court agreed to this ruling by a vote of 5 to 4 Justices Harlan. Gray, Brewer and Brown dis senting. Justice Gray rendered the decision of the court in the ease of Clara L. Bots fonl, who was injured in a Union Pa cific railway car and was a wan let 1 dam ages. In its decision, the court held that the lady was not obliged to sub mit to a physical examination by the company's physicians to ascertain her injuries.
