Marion Muir. QUIET DETECTIVE WORK. ''I- had an interesting and unexpect ed experience with former President Cleveland during his last term," said a naval officer of high rank, "which taught me a lesson I ought to have known before, and illustrates how he sometimes went behind the record when he wished to inform himself as io the accuracy of official documents. "I was at the time clerk of a divis ion in the navy department A wo man, whose name it is not necessary to mention, used to annoy me greatly by soliciting my aid to secure her a place as chairwoman in the war, state and navy building. She would come to my ottice every day until her pres ence became exceedingly distasteful to me. '"One day she produced a petition for a pension for ;?.10 a month for disabil ities alleged to have been incurred in an explosion in the old arsenal build ing in the reservation on the Potomac during the war. and where she had been employed in some capacity. The petition was headed by the name of an otiieer superior in rank to myself and bore half n. dozen names of other persons of comparative prominence in ilie capital. To get rid of her I af iixed my signature. "Her private pension bill was final ly taken up and passed by congress, it was vetoed by Mr Cleveland. Be fore the veto message was sent up to i'ne eanifol I was visited by a polite young man. who said that he repre sented the president. He desired 'to know whether I was personallv nc- otiainted wth the applicant. I said that I was not. He asked if I knew anything of her antecedents, the na ture of her. wounds, her past and pres ent moral character, all of whh-h I had vouched for to the president by my signature to her petition. I was forced to confess to my great chagrin as I was personally acquainted with the president, that I knew nothing about her beyond what I had seen of her in my ofiiec. "My polite inquisitor then informed me that private inquiries made at the instance of the president had proved the falsity of her petition in all re spects save that she had been employed by the government at the time of the explosion. Nothing in the papers shewed that she bad been in the building at the time of the explosion, and she was otherwise unworthy of government assistance. "In this veto message Mr Cleveland made those in the war. state and navy building feel uncomfortable by his sarcastic remarks about of lice rs and gi ntlemen who testilied to tile charac ter ami worthiness of those of whom they knew nothing, and scored con gress for passing a bill with the proof of injuries absent from the record. "In Washington the petition signing habit, formerly much in vogue, has fallen into disfavor, and officials are very caut Units upon whose petitions they place their signatures." HER LITTLE PRECAUTION. "The fact that a determined stand is til! that is needed." continued the Wesiorn man, "was illustrated a good many years ago by a peculiar iittle incident which took place 011 the old stage line running out of Tombstone. A. T. Holdups used to be frequent on that route; but. strange to say. no body took any precautions against, such a contingency. One day the stage was carrying an unusual number of passengers, and while it was going over an extremely desolate section of the road a masked man stepped from behind a 'rock, leveled a shotgun at the driver and ordered him to pull up. He obeyed at once, and the robber be gan the usual program by telling everybody to get out and range them selves in line with their hands above I heir heads. There were several nervy men on top. but none of them cared to court sudden death by taking the initative. and it was impossible, more over, to say how many additional rufiians might be lurking behind the rocks. At any rate all hands were clambering down when suddenly the door of the stage was flung violently open, ami out leaped a big. fierce looking man with a cocked revolver in each fist. At the sight of him the robber took an Involuntary backward step and ffdl sprawling over a round stone. Both barrels of his gun went off in the air. and in the confusion he picked himself up and ran like a deer for cover, tie iiau a norse on tne otner side of the rocks, and in less time than it takes to tell it he was in the saddle and 'burning the wind' across the prairie. He got away; and now comes the funny part of the story. While the robber was beating his retreat the big man snapped both pistols ineffec tually at least half a dozen times, and then discovered to his blank amaze ment that neither oue of them was loaded. He was glaring dumbfounded into the empty cylinders when his wife stuck her head out of the coach and burst into .vociferous weeping. 'Oh! John,' she sobbed, T took the cartridges out of them guns this morn ing aud forgot to t-ell you about it.' As she spoke she held out a handful of brass shells. 'What the did you do that for?' he roared. 'I was skeered that they might go off in the coach aud shoot the baby. Boo! boo! boo!' she replied." New Orleans Times-Democrat. , COLD STEEL OR DEATH. "There is but one small chance to save your life and that Is through an operation," was the awful prospect set before Mrs I. B. Hunt, of Limo Ridge, Wis, , by her doctor after vainly trying to cure her of a frightful case o stomach trouble and yellow jaundice. He didn't count on the marvelous pow er of Electric Bitters to cure Stomach and Livers, but she heard of it,, took seven bottles, wis wholly cured, avoid ed the surgeon 'a knife, now. weighs more and feels .better than ever..- It's positively guaranteed to cure Stomach, Liver and Kidney troubles and never disappoints.

But when it comes to a big armored cruiser or a first-class battle ship the actual expense seldom falls below $4,000 or $o,000. The building of the ways for the ship to slide down over is the main item, and then comes the greasing. Every inch of timber over which the vessel slides must be covered with a lubricaut. Different firms use different substances, but soap and tallow form the main ingre dients of them all. Cramps use a layer of beef tallow and a layer of soft soap, and, taken together, between one and one-half tons of the stuff is required to put a move on the average battle ship. The tallow is spread on first, to the depth of three fingers, and the workm. n use big, flat trowels to make the surface as "smooth as possible. Then they pour over the soft soap, which is just thick enough to run, or about the consistency of tar. As a general thing the double coating an swers the purpose admirably, aud the ship glides into the water as if it was sailing on air. If it sticks, as has hap pened in a few cases, it is likely to spring some of the plates, and acci dents' of that kind are so costly that nothing is spared to -avert them. More over, sailors are very superstitious about launchings. and. if anything goes wrong. Hie ship is regarded as un lucky, something greatly dreaded by all officers. Several years ago a Chicago packing house got up a special prepar ation for greasing ships' ways and sent a quantity of it to a firm in Maine to demonstrate its merits. It was made from the refuse of the rendering house and had an odor that seemed oif its bearings. The firm tried p: on a small merchant ship which it had ready to launch, but instead of showing any of tlie qualities of a lubricaut it. acted more like a glut. The vessel stuck fast on the ways and had to be pulled off with jacks. That was the last ever heard of the preparation, and the Chi cago folks dropped the scheme. What is left of the soap and tallow after a launching is carefully scraped off and sold. It is used for making axle grease. SCHOOL OF APPLIED M EC1IANTCS To be entirely successful, such schools must, bo conducted by men of broader views and sounder practical judgment than are usually found as sociated with high scholarship and ripe pedagogic experience. The profession al teacher has, as the rule, 110 concep tion of what such a school of applied mechanics should ho. He deems it his duty to tench the pupil what books contain, rather than to show him ho-.v to use books and to avail himself of the rules, tables, formula and deduc tions which are the keys to unlock every closet in the storehouse of knowledge. He wants to make the pupil an expert iu; laboratory manipu lations, which he should be if his elected career is that or an analytical chemist, but cannot understand that for any one else it is less useful to be able to make the analysis than to know what the analysis means when made. In mathematics the profession al tendency is to prepare tjie pupil for detail work which has already been done before.' rhiher than to show him how to use 1 he convenient means of every engineer's handibook to get the results he needs. In every branch of science the pedagogic standard is ability to conduct original investiga tions; in practical work, which is a failure if hot pecuniarily, profitable, the capacity for rapid and accurate generalization from available data is worth a great deal more. In a word, the knowledge of how to use books is what "the great mass of technical students with a purpose in life most need. There will always be plenty of book makers. The schools which im part this knowledge most successfully will be those conducted by broad mind ed business men with the assistance of teachers who are not ambitious of professional chairs in the universities, and are perhaps unfitted for them. The work of the Cooper union in New York places it in some respects at the head of the educational founda tions of this country for practical use fulness. Many other institutions or ganized on similar lines merit honora ble mention. But there are not nearly enough of them. The Iron Age. Goshen, 111. Genesee Pure Food Co., Le Roy, N. Y.: .

VICTORIA IN A NOVEL ROLE. Let it be said to the high credit of Queen Victoria aud the Prince of Wales that they have taken practical action against the idiotic and brutal fashion of docking horses' tails. Friends of the dumb animals could wish that they had done so long ago. but are grateful to have it done at all. for it means a great deal more than an act of humanity on the part of the royal personages. It means that tens of thousands of people, who in the inscrutable wisdom of heaven are al lowed to own and mistreat their su periors, the quadrupeds, will immedi ately ape royalty and cease to mutil ate horses or to buy any that are so disfigured. It means, further, that the pin-headed leaders of fashion across the British channel and the Irish channel and the Atlantic ocean and hi far India and Australia will suddenly become humane because the queen of: England has set them the example. The same people would even try to become decent if the Prince of Wales took a start in that direction. Nevertheless we are glad that the queen and prince' have done the right thing in this matter. ,It is a sign, we trust, of reformation in a still higher direction, and while the lamp holds out to burn we will entertain the hopp that some day her majesty may be led to feel wine, sympathy not only with dock-tailed horses, but also with starv ing .Indian ryots aud Irish peasants. It is not very likely, but still we hope. Boston Pilot; ' ;-! .
