Cause mul Cure o? Mill Explosions, At a meeting of the State Millers' Association of Kentucky, au intereatiug lecture was deliv ered by Professor Tolien. tlis subject was principally mill explosions and lie made some remarkable experiments whioh went to show conclusively that Hour and other fine organic dust, under certain oonditions may becoire al most as explosive as gunpowder, and at the close of tbe experiment ho advanced a new theory on mill disasters that seemed generally acceptable to jth insurance men and millers. In the moist atmosphere ha showed that there bodies are less if at all suscepti ble to rapid combustion while dry air made them inflammable, especially iu con nection with electricity generated by belts, etc. After delermining their liability to ignition be recommended the use of bulb tbeimonieters constantly iu mills, and on its indication of dry ness, the injection of livo steam into the atmoa phere. This is a simple expedient, and would mitigate, if not prevent explosion.

LONDON, May 2.—In the house of lords thli evening. Earl Granville, secretary of state for foreign affairs, announced the resignation of W. E. Forster, chief secretary for Ireland, and the intention of tbe government to release three imprisoned members of parliament, (iranville explained that Earl Cowper bad not resigned the lord lieutenancy on accouut of any difference with the government in regard to policy, lie confirmed the report that Lord Carliugford would temporarily take the presi dency of the council during Earl Spencer s ab sence in Ireland. Gladstone in the house ol commons mado au announcement similar to that of Granville iu the house of lords. Gladstono statea that a large number of tbe suspects would be released, and the govern ment instead of renewing the coercion act, would introduce a measure remedying the ad ministration of justice iu Ireland. He said ki strnction had already been sent to Ireland for tne release of three imprisoned members of parliament and that tho cases of the suspects were being carefully considered with a view to the release of all except those who were ar rested on suspicion of having been personally concerned iu outrages. Tbe released would be on the ." government's sole responsibility. Gladstone stated that Forster had resigned because he waa not willing to share the responsibility, aud that Forster would make a personal explanation on Thurs day. The measure which the government will introduce remedying the administration of justice in Ireland, starts with the protection of life and property. Sexton, at the conclusion of Gladstone's re marks, said the government had taken the first etep iu a policy that would cover its adminis tration with glory, aud would pro duce ties of mutual interest between Ireland and Englaud. Speaking with reference to the coercion act, Gladstono made a special reser vation, that if peace and security should be jeopardized by the action of secret societies, the government would consider it its duty to propose counteracting measures. He declared the government did not think the coercion act had failed, as it had served an important pur pose iu a great, crisis. He warmly praised the manner in which Foster performed bis duties, and expressed regret at his retirement. Glad stone declared that none of the measures in the queen's speech at the opening of tbe ses sion, except resolutions in regard to rules of parliamentary procedure, would be allowed to stand in tho way of the measures which the government would introduce for restoring peace and order iu Ireland. PARNELL'S RELEASE. DUBLIN, May 2 Parnell, Dillon and O'Kelly havo boon released from Kilmainham jail. After their roleaae they drove upou the out skirts of the city to the Harcourt street station where they took a train for Avondalo, the res idence of Parnell, where they will remain two days and will arrive in London on Friday. There was great excitement on the news being received of the resignation of foster. Crowds gathered on the streets and cheered for i'ar nell and groaued for Forster. Bands paraded (he city playing national airs. The news of the release of laud leaguers was qulokly trans mitted throughout the country, and soon fires wero blazing on the Wicklow hills. There were spontaneous rejoicings every where. At Limerick many people danced with joy. shouting: "Forster isgone. God save Ireland!" A band paraded at Water ford. Illuminations were general. Parnell, Dillon and Kelly wero released at 11 o'clock to-night. Further changes at Dublin Castle are expected. Thomas Henry Burke, under secretary, and Col. Hillier, inspector general of tho constabulary, will probably resign. LONDON, May 2.—In the house of commons Gladstone said the release of Davitt was totally distinct from the release of the sus pects, wbioli was a question it might be right for the government to consider. Northcote likened the government to a pendulum, swinging from one side back to the other. Chamberlain, president of the board of trade, or Khaw Lefovere, commissioner of works and buildings, will probably succeed Forster. If tho former, Sir Charlc-B Dilke, utidor foreign sooretary, will succeed to the presidency of the board of trade. Tho Tiinos says that tne pol icy now to be tried in Ireland is one of con cession and conciliation, pure and simple. AMERICAN SUSPECTS. Tho Times slates fliat the correspondence between Great Britain and the United States relative to tho mispecta will BIIOW there has been no weak acknowledgement of pretensions inconsistent with international law and com mon sense. Groat Britain has firmly main tained the position that Amorican Irishmen in Ireland must submit like other Irishmen to laws doomed necossary by parliament. It Is in doforenco to tho comity of nations, not to their claim of right, that prisoners of Ameri can nationality wore offered their liberty if thoy would leave the ronntry. If somo of them foolishly and insolently refuse to give such pledge thoy must tako tho ohauce of re maining iu jail as long as the executive deems necessary. It is, howovor, no longer doubtful that tho cabinet is considering whether all pris oners may not bo liberated, except those ar rested on suspicion of being personally con cerned in outrages. DUBLIN, May 2.—Five saspeots were uncon ditionally released from tho Naas jail to-day. Mr. Blaine begins to show very plainly the wear anfl foar of a quarter of a century of exciting political life. He is evidently growing old, nnd of late yenrfl has been obliged to fa.ee not ouly fotp from, witliont, but plagues from wttfain, in tbe shape of rh«umatio goat. MINNESOTA STATE NE»S. raiinneiota Rangers. WASHINGTON, May 4.—An advene report was to-day made to the senate by the commit tee on military affairs upon the law introduced last January by Mr. Windom for the relief of the first Minnesota Mounted Hangers, volun teers. The proper accounting officers of the treasury are directed to pay bounty to the en listed men of those mounted rangers who served in the late rebellion, as follows: To those who served the full period of one year or more, the sum of $100. To thoBa who borved the full period of six months hilt leis than a full year, the sum of $00.60. To those who served a less period than six months, the sum of $:u:!:(. In case of the death of the soldier who If living would be entitled under this act to the said sum or sums of money that would be due to the said soldier if living shall be paid to his widow, and if there be no widow then to his child or children, anil if there be none then to his mother if she be a widow. LINCOLN ELUCIDATES. In response to a request by the committee on military affairs for any facta bearing upon the lelief asked in this bill, and for any sug gestions in the premises, the secrotary of war invites attention to a repoit by the adjutant general, in which the latter says: August 25th, ISti'J, the governor of Minnesota was authorized by the secretary of war to raise a regiment of mounted infantry to serve for a term of three months, aud October 3, 180'i, the gov ernor was informed by telegram from the war de partment that the mounted infantry ordered Au gust '25 may bo mustered iu for one year. October IS, 1802. the governor of Minnesota, by letter o£ that c.ate to the secretary of war stated that the Indians having as snmed larger proportions than at first anticipated. It was deemed ad visible by Gen. Pope and himself to chaLge the term to twelve months, which had been done, aud the men wero being mustered in for that time, and by a telegram of November lbO*.!, from this office, tho governor was informed that the three months term of the mounted infantry was changed to twelve, as roaueated in the letter of October IT,, 18(12. The regiment was organized from October 9 to December :tO, 18(12, lo serve one year, was designated the First Minnesota Mounted Hangers, served against the Iudians on tho froutier of Min nesota and was mustered out of service by com panies at different dates from October 20 to December 7, 1803. Volunteers enlisting for one yeai's service were not entitled to bounty prior to tiie act of July 4, 1801. There is nothing of the record in the department which would sus tain the action proposed by this bill, and to take such action would be a discrimination ill favor of this regiment as against tho samo class of volun teers iu other States prior to July 4,1864. Upon this showing tho committee are of the opinion that the bill ought not to pass, and they go reported to-day. Minnesota Boys For AVest T'olut ami Annap olis.

Gluttony, and Rapid Eating Among tbe i'rotuiiient Causes. At tbe Fourth Unitarian church, New York, the Rev. George W. Gallagher, on Sunday evening, discussed tbe question, "Why are Americans dying out?" "When we learn,"said Dr. Gallagher, "that iu the your 1880, the death rate in New York was 2G.4.8 to 1,000 inhabitants, that in the year lbSl the rate was 31.08 per 1,000, while in London for the tame period the average death rate was 22.H, and that foity-eif»ht cities in the United States dur ing t^ie ime time exceeded the death mte of New Yoik, it become,T US to ask, Why are Americans dying out? In 1881, in thi3 city, there were 12,491 more deaths than births and iu the months of January and February, 1882, the deaths exceeded lhe birth i by 2,44(1. In London, during the year 1880, there were 81,128 deaths and 132,127 births, or 5',047 uioro births ihan deaths. I have considered these facta wnthy of close attention. One reason why Americans are dying cut is because they eat too much and too fast. A person studying closely the habits of Americans would think that object in life waa to eat. Americans can't converse five minutes without something to eat. Another reason why Americans are dying out is because they drink too much. The cuise of our nation is intemperauce. A third reason why Americans are dying out ig because they gamble too fast. We are becoming a nation of Kfitnblera. Thia spir it of gambling is undermining all honest in dustries. Another reason is disappointed ambitiou. We are a nation of rivals. Eaoh man desires to lead bis fellows. A repub lic ha« many blesdinas, but it has one dis advantage, the failure to satisfy the grasp ing nmbition of its teeming miliioi s. The last reaBon for Americans dying out is their falfie Giandard of success, money. If a man in Europe fails in business, or loses his money by somo nnoxpecled ilamity, his friends will still remain true to him, BB a rule. But in this country let a man lose his fortuue by adversity, aud he is quickly forgotten. Wo should not Range tbe amen ities and dulies of life upon a person's bank book, for in doing so we introduce tlnm causes of discouragement, inaction, and national debt whioh will not only make Americans die oat but every nation under the sun." Death ofMnJor W. J. Twining W. J. Twining, major of engineers, U & A., died in Washington Friday afterncou of pnonmonii. Ho has for Beveral years been tho engineor commisaioner of the district of Col umbia, and waa the life and strength of that board. Hn was a Very popular gentleman, and hia loss will bo keenly felt by the people of this district. Mai. Twining was well known in the northwest. He wis oil Gen. Turij'a stiff up till 1870, and was tho coiutniuaionor who marked oHt. tho boundary line botweon tho United States and the British northwestern possession*. Maj. Twining vaa burn inlroland, and graduated from the Weal Point military academy in 1803, being assigned to tbe en gineor corps Juuell, of that year. He re ceived major's and licii'onaut's brevets for gal lant and meritorious eei vices, in tho field, dur ing the war, aud in Dccenibor, lStij, was re assigned to the engineer corps with the rank of captain. An attempt in the oounofl at Hankato to ra duoo the liquor lioeoas from $160 to $100 failed by a lie vote. The license therefore re mains attforso. 4 1 a i i V PRIXCIPAL AND INTEREST. "Ob, mother, mother, am so tiredl" "Cheer up, my ohild, we have not very far to go. Oome oloser, let me brash the dew from your carls. Now take my hand." But the child hung back, sobbing with weariness and exhaustion, and the pale young mother, bending over her in the vain attempt to soothe tho hysterical excite ment, did not bear the rumble of advanc ing wheels until they passed close to her and a rough, hearty voice exclaimed: "What ails the little girl? Ain't sick, is sheY" Mary Ellsworth had never seen farmer Rajnesford before, yet the moment hex eyes rested on the wrinkled, sun-burned face, with the shaggy brows overshadow ing kind eyes, sho felt that he was a friend, and made answer promptly: "Not sick, sir, but very tind. We have walked a long way." "Got much farther to go? aslted the farmer, tickling his horse's ear with the end of his whip. "To Breokton." Mr. lUynesford gave a low whistle. "That's four miles off, and the little gal is pretty nigh used up a'ready." "I know it," said the woman, with a sigh, "but I have no money to hire a lodging nearer. In Breckton I hope to obtain work in the factory." Farmer Raynesford gave the seat of his wagon a thump with his whip handle that made old Bonney drop the mouthful of clover he was nibbling from the roadside and prick up his cars in astonishment. "I won't hear of such a thing!" said he, energetically. "Why that child can't go twenty rods faither! Here, get in along with me. You won't be none the worse for a bit of supper and a good nights rest. I know Hannah'll scold," he muttered, as he lifted the little gill to his side and ex tended his hand to the mother "but I can't see folks perishin' by the wayside and never oiler to h6lp 'em. I don't care if she Bcolds the roof of the bouse otf." He drove rapidly along, interjecting re marks to his horse, while Mrs. Ellsworth drew her thin shawl around the little golden head that already drooped drowsily upon her shoulder, and thought with a deep sen sation of gratitude upon the shelter heaven provided het in her eoreBt strait. It was an odd-shaped old fariu-honse, gray with the storms of nearly half a cen tury, with a broad door in one, overhung by giant lilao bushes, and a kitchen, where, even in the bloomy month of June, a great tire roared up the wide-throated chimney, and Bhining rows of tins winked and glit tered at every upward leap of the flames. Mr. Raynesford jumped ont of the wag on, threw the reins over a post and went in to conciliate his domestic despot. "Look here, Hannah," he said to a tall, angular-looking female who emerged from a pantry near by, her face nearly or quite aB Bour as the saucer of pickles she was carry ing. "Jest set a couple more plates on the table, will you''' I've brought home a wo man and a little gal I found a piece below, e'en a most tired to death. They was cal culatin' to walk on to Breckton, but I thought it wouldn't huit us to keep 'em over night." "I am astonished at yon, Job Raynes ford, said hia better half in a tone of angry remonstrance. "We might just as well hang out a tavern sigu at once and done with it yeu're always bringing home some poor, miserable creetur or other and"— "There, there, Hannah," interrupted Mr. Raynesford, "I am always willin' to hear to you when your'e anyway reasonable, but it goes clear ag'n my grain to see poor folks a sufferin' and never stretch out a belpin' hand. 'Taint scriptur nor 'taint hum in natur'. "Well, po your own gait, Job Raynes ford," responded his wife, tartly. "Only mark my words, if you don't end yonr days in the poor-house, 'twon't be through no fault o' your own!" flhe shut the pantry door with a bang that made all the jelly-cups and the milk pans rattle, while Job, with an odd grim ace went out to help his guest3 to alight. "Don't mind my old woman," said ho, apologetically, as Mrs. Elsworth sprang to the ground. "She's kind of sharp spoken, but she means well after all. We ain't all just alike in our notions, you know." "If nil the world were like yon, sir." said the young widow with tears in her eyes, there would be less want and suffering by far." Farmer Ranesford pretended not to hear he was buBy lifting little Mary out, "Set on them blackberries, Hannah," said he toward the close of their evening meal. "The little aal's so tired she can't eat nothin' solid." "I was calculating to'keep them blackber ries for the donation party, to-morrow," says Mrs. Riynesford, rising with rather an un willing air, "Nonsense!" quoth the farmer, with a broad laugh. "I having a donation party of my own to-night. Here, little one, see if those berries don't put some color into your cheeks." All the evening little Mary sat by the hearth, with her hands in her mother's and her lirge blue eyes fixed earnestly upon the kind farmer's face. "What are you thinking about, dearest?" asked Mrs. Ellsworth once. She drew a long sigh and whispered: "Oh mamma, he is so k nd to us!" When Mary Ellsworth and her little girl sat out next morning upon their long walk to Breckton, Job,Raynesford went with them to the gate, fumbling nneasily in his pocket, aud glancing guiltily around to make sure that Hannah was not within Beeing distance. When Alary extended her hand ti sav gocd by, to her nstouishment a bank bill was thrust into it. "Don't say nothi'n" muttered Job, with a sheepish air. "Ten dollars ain't nmoh to me, and if yon don't chance to g6t work in the factory right away, it may be a good deal o' UBe to you. Needn't thank me jou're as welcome as flowers in May!" He bent over to kiss the child's fair fore head, iind stood watching them until ihe two slight figures disappeared, and only the golden Rky and the moving crests ot summer woods remained. "Ton dollars!" ojaculated Mrs. Raynes ford, who had witnessed this littlo episode from behind the curtains of her milk-room window. "Is Job Raynesford crazy! To give ten dollars to a poor, strolling vagrant! If he don't get a piece of mv mind." And she hastened out, her cap border fairly standing on end with horror. Job awaited the coming tempest with philo sophic coolnefcs, his hands in bis pockets, and his lips p.irted in a good natmcd B.nile. It was not the first piece of Han nah's "mind" that had been bestowed upon him, nor did he suppose it was likely to b« the laBt. "She means well," he said to himself, when the volley of wrath had been dis charged at his luckless head, and Mrs. Raynesford had returned to her bnttev making, "but she's got the greatest faculties for scolding of any woman I ever saw." The years flitted by, sprinkling the sleep old farm-hout-e with crystal dropB of April showers, and thaching it with the dazzling ermine of Jonrary snows, many and many a time. Gray hairs crept in among the raven locks of Farmer Raynesford, the caro wora wriknles began to gather around his mouth and brow. Alas! those swiftfostod years brought troubles innumerable to the kind old ruan. "Twenty yoarsl" mused he, one bright June morning, "it don't seem possible, Hannah, thntU wns twenty years ago this very day that I caught that ugly fall frcna the hay-rack and got lamed for life." He looked down at tho crutches by his side as he spoke, and sighed from the very bottom of his heart. Hannah stood in the doorway, tossing corn to a forlorn little colony of chiokens. Twenty years bad not improved her in any respect—she ganntire, bonier, and more vinegar-faced than ever. "Yes," 6aid she, slowly, "and perhaps you don't remember that it was Joat twenty NUMBER 4. years ago to-day that you threw ten dollars away on that woman and her child. I told you that you'd end your days in the poor house, and I don't see but what my predic tion is likely to come true. Didn't I say you would live to repent it?" "I won't deny, Hannah," said the old man," but that I've done a good many things I've been sorry for—we ain't none of us perfect you know, wife—but that is not one of them. No, I never for a moment repented being kind to the widow and fath erless. Hannah shrugged her shoulders, bnt made no reply. "Didn't you say you were going up to see the rich lawyer about the five thousand dollars to-day?" she asked, presently. "Yes, but I don't suppose it'll be much use. If he'd wait a little. I'd do mv beBt to please him. Jones Bays he'll be sure to soil the old place, over our heads, however they tell me he's a hard man. I mean to explain to him juat how the matter stands aud" "I told you how it would be long ago!" ejaculated Hannah, unable to restrain her vexation. "What on earth ever possessed you to sign for Je?sie FairweatherV" "I s'posed he was an honest man, and I wouldn't see an old friend wronged." "Fiddlesticks!" exolaimed Mrs. Raynes ford. "That's juat your calculation, Job! There-Zeke has brought the waggon do start off or you'll be too late for the York train." And Job meekly obeyed, only too happy to escape from the endless discord of his wife's roliing tongue. The rays of the noonday Bun streamed brightly through the stained glasB casements of Mr. Everleigh's Gotuic library. The 100m was decorated with appurtenances of wealth and taste. Velvet chairs, with tall backs of daintily carved rosewood, were scattered here and there. Marble vases oc cupied niches beside the doorway, and the rarest pictures hung on the pointed and gilded wall. But the prettiest object of all, the one which the rich lawyer oftenest raised his eyes from the writing to contemp late with an involuntary smile of pride and etfection, was a lovely woman in a white cashmere morning robe, trimmed with vel vet. who stood opposite, arranging flowers in a boquet. She woTe a spray of berries carved of Neapolitan coral at herlbroat, and tiny pendants of the same rare stone in her shelllike ears, and the slender waist was tied around with a pink ribbon. "There, Walter, isn't that pretty?" she asked, holding up the completed bouquet. "Very pretty," he answered, looking not at the roses or geraniums, but rectly at the blue eyes and golden curls of his beauti ful young wife. Youare not even not icingit," Bhe posted. "Because I see something so much better worth looking at," he said playfully. "Do you really love me so very muoh?" she asked throwing down the flowers, and coming around to his side. He rose and drew her caressingly toward him. "My dearest, you are more preciouB to me than the whole world besides!" Sh i let her head rest for a moment on his shoulder, and when she raised it there was a tear on her eyelashes. "Oh, Walter, if mamma could only see how happy we are!" There was i knock at the dooT. Mrs. Everleigh slipped from ber husband's arm with the prettiest blush in the world and was ver Luy with bar flowers when the rich hwyei'd "right baud man" put his griz zled head into the room. "The old man wants to see you about that Fairweather business." "Show him in. Don't look so disap pointed, love," he said, as the grizzled head disappeared. "I shall not be detain ed three minutes, aud the horses are at the door." Mary Everleigh never trouble her pretty, little head about business matters, so she never looked up as the halting Bound of old Mr. tynesi'oru s crutcn echeod on the cirpet. But the instant he spoke she stor ed as if an arrow had smitten her, and her slender hands clasped together, listening as intently as though her life depended on hearing every word. The old man was pleading and sorrowing—her husband po litely inflexible. At length Job Raynesford turned to go. "Well, sir," he said, in a subdued tone, "I don't know much about law and law books, but it does seem bard that an old man should be turned out of the home that has sheltered him for sixty years, and all for no fcult of his own. -They say yon are a very rich gentleman sir— S3000 may seem a small sum to you, but it is my all." Mrs. Everleigh's soft voice broke the momentary silence that succeeded this ap peal. "Walter, oome here one minnte—I want to speak to you." lie obeyed, somewhat surprised Bhe drew him into a deep recess of tho stained glass window, and standing there with the rosy and amber shadows playing about her lovely brow lika some fair-pictured saint, she told him how twenty years ago a wear ied child and its mother were fed and shel tered by a kind-hearted stranger, how he had given them money and kind wishes, when they were utterly alone a&d desolate in the wide world. "But, my love, what has all this to do with my busiuess matters?" "Much, Walter! I am that little child!" "You, my dearest?" "I, my husband, and the noble man, who I am persuaded, saved my life that night, stands yonder, with gray, bowed head and nuking heart!" "Marv, you must surely bo mistaken." "I cannot be mistaken, Walter I should know him among a thou Hand. You said you loved me, this morning now grant me one Utile boon?" "What is it, dearestr" "Give me that note he spoke of." Mr. Everleigh silently went to a small ebony cabinet, unlocked it and drew out a folded paper, which he placed iu her hands.. She glided up to the old man, who had been ga/.iiif out of the window iu a sort of reverie, and lui her soft hand on his arm. "Do yon Temember the little golden.hair ed Mary whom yon fouud with her mother, wearied out on the roadside, twenty years ago?" "Do I remember her, lady? It was bat this very morning I was recalling the whole Fcene, "And don't yon recognize me?" she said, smiling up into bis face as she drew back the drooping curls. "I am little Mary!" He stood in bewildered silenoe. All of a sudden the truth seemed to break npon him, aud he laid his band upon her head with a tearful blcesing. "And your mother, my child?" "She has been dead for years bnt it is my dearest task to be the instrument of her gratitude". Ilero is the w»te you indorsed my husband has given it to me. See!" A small lamp was burning iu one of the niches she held the bit of paper over the flame until it fell a olond of light ashes up on the floor. "Well!" Mrs. Rayncsforr! met hsr husband at the door at the instant hia crutches sounded on tho littlo graveled path. "Why don't yon speak? Of coarse I know yon've Hothinp but bad news to tell, bnt I may as well hear it at once. "Have you seon the gentleman? WJiat did he nay?" "Hannah," said old Job Raynesford, slowly folding np his glove i," "do "MMsini Ites" REASONABLE —AMD— FURNISHED Oil APPLICATION. First CIam Facilities for tob Work.. Ligal Advertisements Must be Paid for when Affidavit Is Given. There was a moment's silence. The old man was pondering over tbe past, and Mrs. Raynesford was so taken by surpiiBe tnat she really could not speak. "And now, wife, what have yon to say abent my financial mistakes?" said Job, archly. Mrs. Raynesford had no argument suited to the energies of the case, and she wisely said—nothing. THE HHEAT PORK MEBCHAHT.' An Interview wltb i'hil. Anaowr* the Ve rnon* Packer. Boston Herald. In all, Phil. Armour is facfla folncepB among the makers of pork. Over l.OfM), OUU hogs were killed at his Chicago packing house lust year, over 500,000 more at Lis Eacking bouse in Kansas City, several undred thousand more at his establish ment at Milwaukee. He killed more poikers—500,000 more—within the last twelve monthB than both Cincinnati and St. Louis put together. Twenty-five mil JioD.dollars of bis money were distributed in the corn belt of this country for liv« boRB last year. He sits in his office on Washington street, in Chicago, and evCTy day talks over the wires with his own employes in London, Liverpool, Antwerp, Copenhagen, Harve, Hamburg, and with hundreds of others distributed through out the Southern States, with his part ners at New York and Milwaukee. When he believes in pork he buys, not only Bach as is within easy reach, but every barrel and pound of meat that is for sale in the world. Having bought it, he sells it, not to the great spec ulators in this country and abroad, but himself distributes every pound of it witb bis own distributing machinery—the IMOSI elaborate in the world—to the pork-eatera in the southern cotton states, in the manu facturing districts of England and France the agricultural section of Germany, and he lumber regions of the north. In lS7li Mr. Armour was the owner of practically every barrel of pork in the world. Within the next year he had sold it all over for con sumption. His speculation netted him, it is said, "The hostile action of the French gov ernment," said Mr. Armour, "was ostensi bly taken for sanitary reasons. It was real ly urged, however, by Erench protectionists and sprung by a wild minister of commerce who was seeking popularity." "Are American meats as good yet as the foreign?" "No, for corn-fed hogs can never make as palatable food as hogs fed on barley and turnip but one is a good deal cheaper than the other. Barley costs nearly twice a» much as corn. The Westp jalia hams cost in Loudon 120 to 12") shillings per 100 pounds. The very choicest American meata cost only a little over half these figures." "Is canned beef likely to,take the place of cured pork and, as the canning trade in creases, is the killing and curing of hogs likely to grow lesa?" "No. The two styles of meats do not per form the same office, and do not, conse quently, oonflict. The poor people buy pork to work on. They buy canned beef as a luxury, and it takes the place of the fresh meat that they are not able to bnv. American packers can sell the English mill operatives and the other poor people of Europe two pounds of canned corned beef, boneless, and every part of which is edible, for just one-half what two poaads of lresh meat, bone and all, would cost them. About the only thing that ef fects the demand for pork, aside from the general prosperity, is the pea crop in Eu rope, a big crop making tie demand lively, and a failure creating a Herioas falling off. The peasant woman makes a soup out of peas and 'fat back,' of which they are all very fond." I asked Mr. Armour whether the pack ing industry was on the move westward, and whether Chicago was destined ere long to lose its supremacy as Cincinnati bad al ready lost htrs? He said: "The hogs are certainly moving west. Whereas Cincinnati was once in the center of th9 American bog raising region, it is now almost outside of it. Kansas City ia certainly nearer the hogs now than Chicago is, but the latter city is likely to remain for some time the great packing center. The railroads havo made expensive arrange ments for delivering live stock at the Chi cago yards transfer stations have been es tablished, and the Umon Stock Yards have nn enormous property here. All these interests will oppose a change."' Effect of Removing Xdnntabi Forests. Attention has long been given to devis ing means to limit the ravages of these tor rents, which ruin the land, threaten estates, destroy roads, and sometimes even com promise the existence of villages. Walls have been built along the banks to protect them, or across the streams to allay the fome of the waters. The most efficacious means, however, as yet discovered, has been to maintain the woods on the slopes of the mountains. The fact of cutting away the trees in promoting the formation of torrents has not been doubted by the inhabitants of mountainous regions, and is clearly set forth by M. Surrel, who says: "When we examine the tracts in the midst •if which torrents of recent origin havo been formed, we preceive tnat they have iu all casts been despoiled of their treed aud bu?hes. ft, on the other hand, we ex aniin hills whose sides have been recently stripped of wood, we observe that they are cut up by numerous torrents, which havo evidently been formed very lately. Here is a remarkable fact wherever there are recent torrents there are no longer forests, aud wherever the ground is cleared these torrents are formed and the same eyes that see the woods fall on the declivity of a .nountaiu may see sppearthereimmediately a multitude of torrents." The disastrous coueequences of remov ing the woods from the Alps began to at tract attention in tbe last century, and hav since been discussed in many publications and official reports. In lHfiJ the prefect of the depaitment of the Lower Alps said in a report to the minister: "If prompt and en ergetic measures are not taken it will be al most impossible to designate the precise moment when the French Alps will be come a desert. The period from 1S"1 to 185:1 will produce a new diminution in the number of population. In lbV2the minis ter will remark a continuous and progres sive reduction iu the uambcr of uectares de voted to agriculture each yen will aggra vate the evil, and in a half century France will count more ruius aud one department less." The departments of the Upper and Lower Alps actually lost 30,000inhabitants, or one-ninth of their population, between ISol and 1870.

Didn't I remind you of it not twelve heurs ago? What LAB that to do with our troubles, pray?" "Just this—to-day I received payment, principal and interest!" "What do you mean, Job RayneBford?" "The little golden-haired child that sat beside our hearthstone that June evening is Lawyer Everleigh's wife, and I have seen her burn the note that has hung like a millstone around my neck for many years. She said it was but paying a sacred debt of gratitude but heaven knows I looked for no such reward," was adopted by the legislative bodies in 18G0, and was put in operation shortly af 'erward. Tke English Ecstacy At Menteae. Ormrt is the onthusiasm of tho EnpHsfc at Mentone over the presence there of QueeiP Victoria.
