Twelve Thousand Ton of Dressed .Heat Sent Out to Consumers In One Day. Lie enormous output of a Chicago stockyard is well Illustrated by the fol lowing figures: At one of these places alone in a single day, as many as 26,000 cattle, 29,000 hogs and 27,000 sheep, or a total of over 80,000 animals, vrll arrive in the stockyard3. The 26,000 cattle would arrire in 1.313 cars, and the animals would weigh 30, 407,000 pounds, representing, dressed, tne enormous total of 18,000,000 pounds, or 3,000 tons of beef furnished by Chi cago in one day. The sheep would weigh 2,234,000 pounds, and would make 584 tons of mutton, while the hogs would yirtd 2,616 tons of pork. The cattle, sheep and hogs combined would give a grand total of 12,000 ton of dressed meat distributed among the consumers of the world in one day by this single livestock market The meat would fill a refrigerator train oTer eight miles long, and the animalg, as receive, would make a train of 1,887 cars, or a solid train of 14 miles, or a solid procession of ani mals, in single file, extending over a distance of 80 miles. A chinos Remedy Hydrophobia is treated in a highly original manner by Chinese doctors. Two sandstone bottles half-filled with wine or spirit are heated until the liquid boils. The contents are then emptied and the redhot mouth of the bottle is applied to t he bite and held there until it is filled with blood, when the same pro cess is gone through with the other bot tle. A decoction is made of glutinous rice, called kian-ml-ou-lou, in which seven cantharldes are boiled. The flies are tak-en out and the rice is given to the patient, who is to be kept quiet.

"What shall we do in case we are at tacked by some ruffian?" is the question women have aBked In every part of the country since the recurrence of the bru tal "hold-ups" by tramps. The man to whom the question is put, says the Cin cinnati Enquirer, will immediately an swer: "Carry a revolver." But wom en dread revolvers almost as much as they do the possibility of attack when out at night. Few women possess the nerve necessary to use a pistol with ef fect when set upon by a burly stranger in a lonely road. Then there is the ob jection to a revolver in the possession of a woman that she would be averse to suspecting the motive of every man she met, a.nd would probably fail to draw the revolver until too late for fear of mak ing a foolish mistake. What, then, can bb provided for her that will be as dead ly in her hands as a revolver, and yet absolutely g.if t so far as she is concerned, and ever re.nl y p.t hand whether wanted for uso or not? The answer to the puzzle has been pro vided by those who make women's hat pins. A hatpin has been designed and will soon be ready for sale that is in tended primarily for use as a weapon of defense. It is in reality a stiletto, masquerading as an Innocent little hat pin. It is made of fine steel, that will bond but will not r-'ak, as sharp as a needle and hardeneu at the end so that it can be used with deadly effect as a dageer, and with a handle that enables a woman to gTasp it for use ae a weapon and hold it so that it cannot easily be pulled from the hand. There are two ways of holding the new hatpin. It can be held with the thumb pressed against the top, or with the but ton grasped in the palm of th hand. In either way it Is quit as terrible a weapon as a razor, and one moreover that cannot easily be wrested from the hand that holds it The method of using the new weapon to the best advantage when attacked is to aim at the face of the highwayman. It is not likely that he will wait for the Wow. A woman armed with one of these stilettos, even if she has not the slightest idea of the rules of the dagger duello is likely to do more damage in a few sec onds than a hungry tiger. The wicked little blade is so small that it is impossi ble to grasp it to wrench it away from its owmer, and yet so keen is it and so light that, used by a woman frenzied by fear, It is likely to be more dangerous to a highwayman thaa a Oatling gun. In considering the advantages of this weapon in the hands or women, those who advocate its use point out that every woman is laminar with its use. While the average woman would find a revolver Cumbersome and difficult to draw from pocket or bag, the hatpin ean be whisked out in a second by a prac ticed hand. No woman would care to be forever plucking a revolver from her pocket when out In a lonely district And yt there are times when a suspicious looking character comes Into the offing and prudence whispers: "Beware of him." While moat women would shrink under those circumstances from pulling out a revolver, It is an innocent act to put the hand to the hat and draw out one of the stiletto hatpins. With this in her hand the nervous woman is ready for the stranger, whatever his intenUons. If he is an innocent man he will prob ably take no notiee of the woman's ac tion. K he is a rascal it is more than probable that he will mark the motive for the act and lei the woman pass unmo lested. It Is an axiom with the members of the police force that the woman with the hatpin is more to be feared than an armed and desperate burglar. The rea son is that the burglar's hand could not travel hlpward without a bullet or a club disabling his arm. The woman with the hatpin, however, has to be watched with lynx eyes, and even then is likely to have the weapon concealed up her sleeve for use when opportunity somes. The inventors of the stiletto hat pin had this In mind when they decided to design a weapon that would be pe culiarly a woman's weapon, and yet b sufficiently deadly to do as much damage as the most ardent opponent or tne gen tleman of the road could wish. t'aea of th Telephone To the making of Irish bulls there is no end, according to Marshall P. Wild er. Here is one of the latest breaks of the Celtic species, if the humorist is to be believed: An Irishman Just over sees a telephone on the wall, and never having seen one before, asks what it is. "It's a telephone," he is told. "Phat's a tlllyphone used for?" qnerieE Pat "Why, to talk through, of course." "Can I talk to Mike upstairs through thot thing?" "Why, of course." Pat goes to the telephone and calls up Mike. "Is that you, Mike?" "Yes," oomes the answer. "Well." says Pat. "stick yer head out the window, I want to talk to ye." Rochester Post-ETTiress, aiimona of Dollars Additional Out lay Nceltatd br Stover Cold Snap In the City of Hew Tork. Every time the mercury hangs about zero for three or four days, the expenses of New York are increased by millions of dollars, state the Sun. Public arul domestic economy in this latitude is adjusted foi a winter tempera ture of somewhere betwee-u 20 and 35 degrees. If the ordinary expenditures of the people of this city are estimated it about $3,500,000 normally a day, the increased cost of living in extremely cold weather is probably more than half a million dollars a day. In addition to this, there is an enormous loss from the incapacity of thousands to work sX all or to do their accustomed full day's work. The increased cost of food alone is en ormous with a fall of 20 or 25 degrees below the ordinary winter temperature. The most expensive foods are then con sumed in increased quantities, and hun dreds of thousands increase their con sumption of alcoholic drinks under the false impression that they thus keep warm. The consumption of fuel in zero weath er is increaeed somewhat between 2.r and 40 per cen t. To the ordinary household er who heat a his own house it may be in creased 50 to 75 per pent. Lone house in the suburbs increase 'their fuel con sumption in very cold weather by nearly 100 per cent. It is impossible to estimate the wear and tear of extra clothing in cold weath er, but with all the hundred of thou sands who cannot stay in doors at such times the item aggregates a large sum. The increased cost of local transporta tion, whether the power he steam, elec tricity or just mere horses, is a very' im portant item. The fuel necessary to gen erate increajsd power of one sort or an other is one elemett of this cost. Horses must be better fed with the most expen sive kind of provender, and the wear and tear of rolling stock is greatly increased. New York's bill of repairs for the two recent cold snaps must be greatly be yond the normal. Plumbing repair bills alone have probably exceeded those of the three summer months. The waste of water alone is another considerable item. Doctors' bills are trebled and quadrupled for thousands. Even the item of domestic breakage is considerably increased in cold weather, and there is a large loss from damage to perishable food. If losses of income, of production and from breakage and damage of various kinds be considered along with Increased cost of living the seven or eight days of extremely cold weather in January must have cost New York almost as many mll liona, and If the loss on sales caused by the lessened stream of buyers from the country be considered the bill will be enormously increased. A Vcrjr Aaoloat Bvtton. While workmen were excavating un der a house in Salisbury square, Lon don, recently, they came upon a nearly complete skull of a woolly Siberian rhinoceros. Although the lower Jaw is missing, the specimen is the finest and most perfect ever discovered out side of the Siberian tundra. The find was made in a bed of peat, and near by other bones, believed to have be longed to some other species of rhin oceros, were unearthed. It is a far cry backward to the days when Eng land was the home of such animals. THE mmm ROUTE -I Cl'i ( )trdet via ' F conic Line.
