TftJlBss So Chaswe 61oeawa lath Mid dle of the Klcht, and Yet They Remained Good Hamored This Waa an Kmc ptional Pasty, Errs For Aaaertrana. "Although Americans have the rep utation of being bom kickers," said the traveler, "once in awhile they give sur prising exhibition of philosophy and good nature. "On a hot night I started ou a trip up the state. I bad been careful to en gage my berth in the morning und bad selected it in the cuntar of the car, so I felt assured that I would be reasonably comfortable. It so happened that travel was heavy that night, and my t at was crowded. To my great disgust, too, it was a very old car. 1 am too old a trav eler to fret, however, and I went into the smoker with a calm mind. The train rolled out, and soon the porter Iwv-tu to mako up the beds. We all turned in early, and I was in my berth bef ore the. train had got far beyond Mott Iluvcn. "I adjusted everything carefully, re moved all my clothes, donned some nice cool pajamas and lay back on my pi i low sleepily. I had just begun to rtjzo off when I was aroused by a queer, ram bling noise. It sounded as though some thing was the matter with the rnuning gear. I listened for awhile ar.d then closed my eyes again, thinking perhaps that the uoie would stop. It didn't, though, and presently others Jtrtpt-nred to lie disturbed also, ileads were poked out between the curtains, and p.i--en-gers asked each other what the trouble was. "The porter was summoned r.a.l in terrogated, but bo knew uothii. that could enlighten ds and said ho .is ?ure it was nothing serious. By and It onie of the calmer spirits like myself fi-lt re assured and dropped oif to sleep i:t fpitu of the nobx- and jolting. "I was in the midst of a dreai t iSxmt falling elevators and similar j leamt fancies when I was awakened by funie body yanking at my arm. It was the porter. " 'I am sorry to troublo yor, boKs, he said, 'but one of the wheels yu thi3 car has gone wrong, and the cojelTictor is afraid wo will have a smashn" if vre don't tako the car off. You'll have to get np and ,'et out, for we are going to run this car into the shop and put on another.' "Naturally I felt a littlo annoyed. When a man is rieepy, ho doesn't: like to be told ho has got to get np and dress and fuss and bother. It isn't the easiest thing iu the world to sleep in a stuffy car ou a hot night anyhow, and inter ruptions are not apt to coinpe tho mind. However, there was no ue of kieking, and so I got np and divr-d as quickly as I could, gathered m- traps together and prepared to move The car was full of people in various s.tfci.-s of undress, and it took some little tiuio to clear t'ueni all oat so that the car could be taken off tho train. Wo found our selves at Albany. We bad to v::t on the platform lor nearly half ru hour whilo the car was rolled baek out i tho war and another one brought on: cf the yard. "If tho first sleeper had bwa old. this one was antiqua It must have been one of the first of the Wagners t b put in service. It was smaller and bad Tew er berths than the other car, and as it hadn't been cleaned for some time it was very dirty. Every time we t a died anything our hands were covered vith dust. V o stood around while the con ductor tried to arrange for our accom modation, and as the berths were differ ently arranged this took somo tir.ie. In tho meantime the train bad started again. "Tho conductor was an amiable per son and tried, bard to hurry thincs as much as possible, which relieved the situation a great deal. Ia allotting space to us be caino finally to an old gentleman who lived up in the f or ;i try. 1 am very sorry, ho said to hi in. 'but 1 11 have to put you, sir, in th Mate room. There are no more berths left It occurrod to all simultaneously, I guess, that that mount an extra ch irse. 'Great Scott 1' exclaimed the old gentle man, 'have I been yanked ont of mv sleep and put to all this discondort to be compelled to pay double fare'; 'Oh, of course not 1 said the conductor. 'In asmuch as it is our fault, we won't charge you extra fare. ' The old man smilod broadly at that, for tbe id'-a of having a stateroom all to himielf was naturally agreeable, but when be came to Cud out later that the stateiooia in. eluded tho washroom and was anything uni pleasant to sluep in Jus siuilc be came rather sickly. After awhilr th-ugs were straightened out, but it vns folly an hour from the tinio we left Albany before we bad turned into our berths again. "Katurally yoa would imagiuo that everybody would have been ill termer- cd after all this fuss, but tbe truth is I never saw a jollier lot of people iu all my travels, or course sleep w;w im possible for most of ns after all this dis turbance, so Wo kept np a running fire of conversation. Jokes were rattled off in a deliKhtfully impromptu lasluon, , i , , . . ana every uoaywno naa naa anv experi ence on sleeping cars recounted tin in to the edification of the others. Although we did not have any sleep, about every one who left the car the next morning wore a broad, good humored smile." New York Sun. . She Perved an a Soldier. The late Colonel Burnaby told of the discovery of a woman who served as soldier in the ranks of tho army of Don Carlos in 1874. She wore the uniform aud lived and fought just as the other soldiers, but a priest in whose parish she had lived identified her. Don Carlos removed her to the nurses' quart?, but she begged to be sent back to the ranks. He laughed.

Tho rod ia received by tho wire draw er in the form of a coil, the rod being of varying section and tbe , coil of weight depending upon the purpose for which it is intended, die end of the rod is pointed and somewhat reduced by machinery. The coil ia then given a bath in mild acid to remove all oxida tion, afterward washed in limcwater to gefe a drawing surface and is finally dried i a proper oven. When ready for drawing, tho pointed rod is ingyrted in one of the holes of a drawing plate. This plate is generally of steel, but some fac tories use east iron. The drawing holes are conical, and tho rod is inserted from the larger end. Ou tho ot her side of the plate the pointed end is nciaed by pow er pinchers and pulled until enough has been drawn through to allow of its be ing passed around and fastened to a drum or reel which is driven by power. Of courso the rod is redud in area and much elongated, and this without any perceptible loss of metal. While passing through the plate it is kept lubricated with what is called wire drawers' soap or grease. After being drawn through this first hole it is put through a series of smaller ones until it has been brought down to the requisite size. But the com pression and disturbance of the structure of the rod consequent npon these reduc tions have hardened it so much that at certain stages it is necessary to stop the process and soften the laetal by anneal ing. After this it is again washed in acid, etc., and the drawing is resumed. Iron and the iiarder grades of steel re quire fivo er six annealings while being reduced to the finer gangis of wire. But the manufacture of soft steel and the details of rolling it into rods have been so perfected that soft steel rods can now be drawn into fence wire without any cleaning or annealing. After the final drawing the wire is finished in various ways, depending npon tho purposes for which it is intended. No matter of what metal tho wire may be composed, the same general sys tem of drawing is used, varying more or less according to the metal, includ ing gold, 6ilver, platinnm, copper, etc, the commercial sizes of wire run from one-fourth inch to one-seven hundredth inch in diameter.

There is a doctor connected with tho University of Buffalo who has a habit of saying, "Do yon catch the idea?" to tho young men who are in his charge when he has made or trb.-d to make a point in his lectures at tho quiz classes. Once he hud an odd case among bis private patit nts, and he invited a stu dent to go with him to see it Tho pa tient was a woman. Before entering tho roora the doctor carefully explained the disease to the student and told him that he hnd sent the woman some medicine tbe night before which he was confident would help her. He explained the com position of the medicine, told what par ticular combination of drugs would ben efit this disease and then entered the sickroom. "flow do you feel this morning. Mrs. K.?" ho asked. "Oh, doctor," replied the patient, 'yon have no idea how much better I feel." "There, young man," said tho doo- tor, turning to the student, "do yoa catch the idea?". "Yes, doctor," continued the sick woman. "I do feel very much better." "Took my medicine, I supposo?" queried the doctor. "Well, no," replied tbe patient You see, my husband was detained away from home last night, and I didn't get it at alL" "I don't think," broke in the stu dent, "that I exactly caught the idea" And the doctor hadn't a word to sav.

Surgery's discovery of a way to oblit erate facial blemishes has given tbe de tective foroee a great deal of difficulty in locating well known criminals. By these operations the whole character of the facial expression ia sometimes changed by a few deft jabs of a lancet. Tbe wounds heal in a jrery short time and in most cases can never be notioed. The criminal fraternity are not slow to take hold of this knowledge, aiid in oon seqnence the descriptions in the posses sion of tbe detectives cannot always be depended upon.

Tear tWrahla Eactve Are Liable te Be a Dollar LurhU A startling discovery was made in the subtreasury the other morning, and as a result all people are warnod against the $20 goldpiece, as the "sweater" is at work again. Cashier Stout received a sack contain ing $5,000 in gold coin from a bank on Third street. As usual, ho weighed each piece before accepting it and found five double eagles each $1 short. Careful ex amination shows that they had all been rem i lied. Remilling gold coin is the latest trick of the men who find counterfeiting too dangerous. They go to a large city and deposit a snm of money in bank and a few days later draw it or.t in $20 gold pieces. These they put into a lathe and trim off tho milling, which they care fully put oil again, gaining at least $1 worth of gold in the operation. As the coin is not mutilated, but only slightly reduced in diameter, the coins are read ily passed on the stores and in market, where money is not weighed when re ceived. The wife of the "sweater" makes trifling purchases at the stores with them, and the good money received in exchange is rebanked and drawn out in gold again. Thus the capital is kept turning over at a lively rate, constantly growing, at a slight risk of detection. A diligent "sweater" can clear from $50 to $75 a day easily. These are the first indications that Cincinnati has been worked, but from pow on double eagles are under suspicion. Cincinnati Times Star. Cat tine Aeqaalnt anr. a.
