worst description. It means slow starva
tion. Because a man forces food into a
weak and impaired stomach, it does not j
follow that he feeds his body. The life- I
giving elements of the food taken into an I
impaired stomach are not assimilated into
the blood. Instead, the impurities of the
sluggish liver &.nd bowels are taken up and |
carried to all parts of the body. The con

the assimilation of the food perfect, invig

Through Whirlpool Itaplda In a
Steel Muriel.
] From the New York Sun.
The fn-i-t steel barrel to be used for;
the navigation of the whirlpool rapids
I was that employed by Hubert Lcaoh, I
of Watertown, today, ar.d in it he made i
a successful tri:> though the rapids
and aiound the whirlpool. Leach's iir.-K \
1 barrel was made of w<K.d, but he lost it 1
\ after bis trip of June 12. This fore-d \
him to get another barrel, and he had
one made- of sieel. The length of the |
barrel is seven feat. Its diameter ia i
| three feet nine inches In the center. The
j steel osed is tlr-re-sixteenlhs of an inch
thu-k, and the hea/!s ar>; of wood, in '■
order 'to better comjjait the wave pres
sure. As the barrel is heavily ballast- ,
cd. its v.'tig-ht is nary 1,000 pi urn's. In]
making the trip L.^ach was swung in!
a hammock on the inside of the barrel, '
Th • start was mad-? at ?>:45 o'clock, :
whe-n c sni-all boat towed the barrel up :
;.nd out in th<? river. Th>; delay of la^t
? : uiiday was avoided, for the main cur- :
rent <;f the river caught the barrel, and j
it was toon hurrying toward the rapids.
There was a large crowd of pei. pie un
\hv brides and on the river ;>anks.
Leach's daring: on his previous trip had
been widely herald d. It took bui a
few minutes for the crowd to realise
I'r.at Leach and his craft were, in the
grasp of the current. Th-e first wave!
was met boldly, then the second, and in
a moment the barrel was being tos.sr-d
roughly by the wateis of the rapids.
Tho course was about the center of!
the river, and as the bairel shot from:
the rapids into the whirlpool it creased
to the north side and swung round up]
in the eddy on the Canadian side. Four 1
tirres did the cuire.it catch it and start'
it toward th^ center, but each time it j
swung tack shoreward. Finally it got!
away far acioss the pool to a point
where four boys ?wam ou: and caprur j d !
ir. On* mounted the barrel, and Leach j
soon opened the manhole. The barrel i
was towed ashore and Leaoh landed. I
He ha-d st<x«l the rough journey all •
light and was in good condition. He
said h^ was pleased wkh the steal bar- '

That Tick* Off the I*ll— rmn'i lan- j
to the Cent.
From the New York Sun.
Americans traveling in Exirope will \
chant paeans of praise to the man who j
invented the new cab system, which j
both Germany and France have, to a i
large extent, adopted. Heretofore, in
preparing a schedule, it was necessary
to make a large allowance of time for i
conversation with cabmen. No matter I
how weM one might know the rates, j
a cab ride was bound to end in a heat- j
ed discussion. If the cabman was j
English, he bullied and he threatened; |
if French, ho argued; if Italian or Span- j
ish, he pleaded; if German, he growled,
and. no matter what his nationality !
might he, he persisted until the travel
er lost his temper or weakly capitu
lated in order to stop the row.
Now all that is changed. An mdi- j
cator that looks like a big cyclometer
is fastened to the back of the coach
man's box where the occupant of the ;
cab can see it. When the cab starts I
the driver sets the instrument going,
and at the end of the drive one can i
tell to a cent what the fare should be. i
Rates have readjusted to suit this !
new system, and the change is made j
by the minute, so that, if one takes a
cab for a short drive, one pays for a '
few minutes only, instead of giving the ;
regular fee for a course. The cabmen
say that, in spite of this arrange
ment, they make more money than they
did under the old system. For hun
dreds of persons will pay the present
price to save themselves a short walk
where not one would have thought It
worth while to spend the price of a
course for the same distance.
The only sufferers from the innova
tion are the horses, which are kept per
petually on the go now that so many
more persons ride, and, when one con
siders the forlorn condition of the av
erage European cab hirse, it is a ques
tion whether the additional comfort to
the public justifies another imposition
upon the long suffering brute. Unfor
tunately, the new plan has not yet
been tried in London, where, of all I
places, it is most needed, and, for the
present, travelers must rc-concile them
selves to the wear and tear upon
nerves and temper which are inevita
ble results of communion with the
London cabby.
Scarcity Owlnn to Failure In the
Foreljrn Supply.
From the New York Journal.
Those New Yorkers who on Sunday
affect the friendly table d'hote in order
to afford the family cook her day off
will be horrified to learn that they
have devoured domestic spaghetti in
stead of the Neopolitan.
It leaked out yesterday that the sup
ply of the imported article had fallen
off to such an extent that the leading
importers have been unable for some
weeks past to meet the demand. The
only course left open to the table d'hote
proprietors of the city was to substi
tute the brittle domestic macaroni for
its elastic and cohesive prototype.
It is a fact that not a dozen of a
thousand confirmed table d'hoters de
tected the sham. They devoured the
home-made spaghetti with undisturbed
relish. Many of them regard them
selves as connoisseurs, and the discov
ery that they have been deceived will
prove a cruel blow.
Dealers, when interrogated yesterday
as to the cause of the failure of the
imported spagHetti crop, were at first
unwilling to admit the existence of any
scarcity, but finding denial useless de
clared it to be due to the inability of
the Neopolitan manufacturers to ob
tain the proper grade of flour.

OFF AGUADORES, July 1 (delayod
in transmission). — The American fleet
has been shelling the fort and rifle pits
of Aguadores all the morning. The ,
Thirty-third Michigan \o!unteers took
a train at .luragua in two divisions,
the first at 5 a. m., and the second at
7.15. A rickety ongins ran the six
miles in ab'uit an hour and stopped a
mile and a half from the fort, out of
Gen. Duffield, commanding the land
forces, signalled to tho New York to
b(Rin firing at 9:30. The New.. York
and the Suwanee advanced until abo-ut
I^,ooo yards <Ilstan't from the fort. The
Suwanee, with three successive shots,
knocked the Spanish flay off th« fort,
wrecked one corner of the structure J
and shot away the staff.
The Cubans and the Thirty-third j
threw out skirmishers on the hill and
shots were exchanged all morning with '
the rifle pits. The forts and block
houses wer-i Loth silenced by the New •
sTork, whose secondary batteries pep- j
pered the ravine, while occasionally j
the deafening roar of her turret guns
was hear<?.
Early in the advance eight companies i
marched up (he railroad ti-ack ar.d an- '
otiier force went around the beach out i
of sight of the Spanish forts. Six j
small sheila were thrown over the I
heads of the men, too close for com
fort, and the; troops were sent to cover I
undtr the embankment in the railroad !
cut. The shap shooters are popping j
away from the hillside ar.d occasionally I
the report of a ship's gun is heard.
The officers and men who formed j
this advance were Gen. Duffleld, Col. j
Boynton, with the Thirty-third Michi- ,
gan; Maj. Webb, Third battalion; J
Lieut. Col. Schmidt, First battalion, !
Capt. Frederick Alger, son of the sec- !
retary of war, who is an aide to Gen. ;
Shafter, was with the regiment.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon the en- !
gine was forced to return for water, j
On the first trip half the command
were brought back, and the train re- j
turned for the others.
It develops that this attack was
merely a diversion in favor of Gen. '
Lawton's movement around the right j
flank. It is impossible to take Aqua- i
dores, as tire river is umfordable, and j
the Spaniards have blown up the far '
end of the railroad bridges. Only •
companies B D and H took part in i
the action, owing to the limited space j
where the men could be deployed.
The killed thus far were all the vie- '*
tims of the first shells fired by the j
Spaniards, who had the line of range j
for the railroad, though the firing was [
high. The men had just thrown off j
their packs when a shell from a three- \
Inch cannon exploded in the ranks of j
Company C. The killed were:

The wounded were:

Port Antonio, Jamaica, July 2. — Great j
disappointment is felt by the naval '

It Is Proposefl to Crona the English
Channel With a Railway.
From the PhiladarpHia. Record.
It is proposed td* build' a railroad across the
English channel ,by erecting a bridge-like
structure at a dejjth of. 15 meters teiow the
surface and operating ; upon this a platform
emerging above water.-. IThe plan is described
as follows: -t ■ 9ii
The platform ori whirh it is proposed that
the trains should StanA while being conveyed
across the channel would be lot) meters king
and about 15 mctexs_ broad. It would b^
supported by five iron pillars on eao'i s'da.
These pillars, braced together in pairs by iron
girders, and supported by iron stays, would
rest on a submerged platform provided with
wheels -rolling cn>railia fixed on the bridge.
This submerged platform wouid be 30 meters ;
wide, so that the—pfitnEJ supporting the plat
form above the vrateruwould incline inward,
since the upward platform would be only
about Jo meters wid«.& The nto-.lvo power,
which it is proposed should be electricity,
would be generated by; Bteam engine? aud
dynamos Installed on the upper platform, and
transmitted directly and separately to each of i
"^ — j
the 15 pairs of wheels with which the «üb
mergrd platform U to be provided.
The new project has Just farmed the sub
ject of carefui study by the Compagni? da
Fives-Lille, whose reputation U i (v rjnt)O
for success. That study has shown the prac
ticability, the facility of execution and the
relative economy of that method of transit by
rail between France and England. Tais
scheme hag the advantage over Its predeces
sors of being very simple; and of pi.sgtinz
absolute safety both during its execution and
in its working. That solution ha.* also the
advantage of objections raised azaJn t tie
project of the bridge above the wier. No
obstacle to navigation w.;uld be created by it,
and the insular situation of England would
remain intact.

The wife went home, turned her husband

That of Her Father.
From the Chicago Times-Herald.
"Well?" said Mrs. Bulterman and her
daughter, before he got off his coat.
"What's the news?"
"Everything is going up," growled
Bulterman. "I don't know what is go
ing to be the end of this."
"And nothing from the Steenth regi
ment? said Grace, tremulously
"Has rot made its mark on the roll
of fame," said Bulterman, with a wink
at his wife, which was indignantly re
pelled. "Has not the bold Private Per
kins kept you informed?"
"She hasn't heard from Harry for
three days," .said Mrs. Bulterman. "it
is so distressing."
"Perfectly agonizing." remarked Bul
terman, sitting down to his soup.
Still, you know pretty well what he is
"Yes." said Grace, looking off Into
space. "I can see him now. He is the
perfect picture of a soldier. I have
seen him many times, with his patent
leathers, that delicious high collar
white gloves and a rose in his button
hole, marching so beautifully."
"You must think he has gone to a
dress parade," observed Bulterman
with a cruel laugh. "Now, I see him
"Oh. can you pa?" erfed the dear
"Yes, indeed. He is eatinp dinner.
| In front of him is a plate on which
I reposes a boiled potato and a piece of
; fat bacon. In one hand he holds a
, hunk of bread, in the other a battered
: tin cup containing coffee,"
"The poor boy could never eat in
I such a fashion, or such coarse food "
protested Mrs. Bulterman. angrily.
j "Then the poor boy will go hungry.
I But let us suppose that he is engaged
lin a soldier's duties. I see him stand
i ing guard in a swamp. His trousers
are frayed at the bottom, he wears a
gray flannel shirt, he has not be^n
shaved for a week, and if it wasn't
for his gun you would think that he
was one nf the weary gentlemen who
appeal to the ladies' sympathy at tiie
back door.'
"Pa. you are positively cruel," cried
"Or," continued the brute, sttll look
ing at the ceiling, "I see him one
more. He is now digging a ditch with
other Harrys and Willies. He has a
shovel in his hand, his clothes are plas
tered with yellow mud, he is smoking
army tobacco in a short black pip._\
and wondering whether he will have
beans for supper."
"Oh, pa." moaned the shrinking trirl
"is that war?"
"Having served three years in the
last conflict," said the hard-headed and
hearted father, "I can testify that it is.
When Harry returns he will not care
for cigarettes or high collars for five
year 3at least, and he'll only wear pat
ent leathers when he goes to be mar
ried. He has gone away Harry, the
pretty boy; he will come back Hank,
the sensible man."
The One Chinaman In I'nlon Army.
Prom the Washington Post.
The enlistment of a Chinaman in the vol
unteer army in California the other day re
calls the fact that there was but one Celes
tial in the War of the Rebellion. His
Chinese name is unknown, but the name
under which he en];a:»d was Thomas Sylvi-i
--ua. He was born in UaUiinor? about eight
een years before the outbreak of the war.
When only a child he was taken to Pltts
'•g, where he acted as servant for a wcalhv
family in that city. When the. war broke out
Thomas ran away and enlisted in the army.
He served Uncle Sam until the close of the
war, shortly alter which he turned up in In
diana, Pa., where he resided until his death,
which occurred a few years ago.
While in the service of the I'nitcd StatFS.
Sylvanuß contracted a disease of the eyes
from which he almost went blind. In 1880 he
applied for and was granted a pension of $12
per month. He also secured several hun
dred dollars back pension. An examination
of the records discloses the fact that Syl
vanus was the only Chinaman in the late war
and consequently the only one of his race
who drew a pension. At last accounts ■ hi 3
widow and children were, still living to In
diana, Pa.
