Runs a Grist Mill la New
Mr. Ada Cranahan Norton, poetess
and member of a famous literary fam
ily, run a gristmill at HVttslown, N.
J., and thereby, with the addition of
what is brought in by her pen, earns
a good living. Mrs. Nortoni is a daugh
ter of Iiowena Cary, eldest sister of
Alice and Phoebe Cery, whose verse
are known throughout the world. She
owes most of her literary standing to
Alice Cory, who gave her much assist
ance and encouragement at the start.
In 1S03 she moved with her husband
to Higbtsrtown, N. J., -and tock charge
with him of a quaint little flour mill,
buali -in such a fashion that the ma
chinery could be easily run by a wom
an. Three years ago her husband died,
and aince then Mr. Norton hits hud
sole charge. She hns built upo reputa
tion for herself and lier mill since then,
and farmers for ten miles around diriv?
to the little mil! with their corn, al
though there are mills nearer home
to which they might go.
Unlike most mills, the one conducted
by Mrs. Norton- has the water wheal
actually in the building. The loweT
part is inclosed. In- its former days
the wheel and lower part were opeu,
and in winter the wheel was very apt
to be frozen and, becoming iimimova

vexation. All this is done away with
by her little scheme of inclosing the

BANDED NOT TO MARRY.
A Club of Twelve Dosioa Yoaas;
Who Decide lo Baeoarasre
With the greatest secrecy an anti-
matrimonial club was recently formed
in Boston, with a membership of just
12. The secret was too much for one or
two of the young men, and now nearly
all about the unholy compact is known.
It is proposed to dine annually as long
as the men bold together, and should
one of them be married he must gives
farewell dinner costing not less than
ten dollars a plate, and as much more
than that as he cares to afford, to ill
the other members, and must jlio pay
into the general treasury for the ac
cumulation of a club fund the sum o!
$500 as a slight "forfeit" for lis treason
to the cause in taking unto htiiiEelf n
wife. Eveulually, if all but one, mem
ber became married, the- remaining
bachelor would pocket the contribu
tions of the others, amounting to $5,500
and iutcrert accruing from time to
time, betides which he would mean
while enjoy many excellent dinners.
The members of The Club of Twelve,
as it is called, were desirous of keep
ing their plan secret, fearing that if it
became generally known society might
receive them Ies cordially than of
yore. Such a result has not yet become
npparent. Indeed, mutch-making
mammas laugh at the whole affair,
hinting that these vows of celibacy
must represent some cases of disap

OrJv a few rears ago practically all
the canned peas consumed in this
oountry were imported from France,
the famous petit pois. Attha: tame it
was deemed impossible to produce the
required quality in this country, con
sumers desiring firm.evembrigh green
goods, atnd though sulphate of copper
was used in securing that color it made
comparatively little difference with the
trade. American packers, howeTer, ex
perimented with the object of pro
ducing a pea the equal of the French
article, and how well they succeeded
is now an old story. Storting with good
seed, and under careful cultivation the
American pea now equate the imported
product of France, and our packers
have built up en Industry which has be
come an important feature of the great

A SOLDIER PUNISHED.
HaaUllateft hr Havla to FwbUftr
Retract aa Insult to
The Parisian papers are variously
commenting on an incident that lately
occurred in the garrison at Toulon. A
soldier named B , while among his
comrades at the barracks, said things
which Coporal Delhorbe deemed an in
mlt to the French flag. The corporal
ordered the man to be punished. The
cnlnnsl when htt heard of the CSS, W8
horrified and straightway reported the
matter to Gen, Coronnat, commn-dlBS
the Fourth brigade of marine infantry.
The genera! was also horrified, and ad
dressed the following letter to the
troops under his command: "Private
R of the Eleventh company. Eighth
regiment, has been punished for hav
ing wantonly said outrageous thing
concerning the flag. It is with sadness
that the general brings to the knowl
edge of the troops this Incident, which
is a veritable crime against the country.
As this soldier had deplorable
antecedents, insults coming from him
cannot soil the sacred emblem. But a
he regrets bis fault, we shall confine
ourselves this time to the fallowing
reparation: The Eleventh company,
which witnessed the scandal, shall b(
formed in the square of execution be

shall be unfurled. Private R 'shall
present arms to it and express his re

to do. If this soldier bad not signified
his repentance, one of the five men of
the color guard, drawn by lot, would
have forced a retraction with arms in
his hands, and the delinquent would
have been sent to a 'compagnie de dis

LADDER ON THE CHIMNEY.
The Varloas Farpoaes That It Is De
laTaed to Serve oa Tall
Slender Iron ladders sre often seen
a M ached to great smokestacks, and espe
cially to big lofty firebrick-lined stacks
of iron. Sometimes in the case of twin
iron chimneys standing close together
a light spiral stairway is run up be
tween them to the top, serving the pur
pose of a ladder and being more con
venient, says the New York Sun.
It doesn't cost very much to build in
a ladder as the chimney goes up, and
there is then in place a permanent and
convenient means of getting at any
part of the chimney, inside or out, for
any purpose. Brick chimneys are
sometimes lined with fire brick, aniV
they arc also sometimes built with a
space between the flue and the outer
structure. If for any reason it should
be desired to get at the interior of a
chimney the ladder affords a ready and
convenient means ot access to the top,
from which a man can be lowered in a
bo'sun's chair. In the case of chimney
caps, built perhaps of a number of
pieces, the ladder gives a convenient
means, already in place, for getting at
the top of the chimney for any repairs
that may be necessary.
The more common uses of the lad
der, however, are those to which it is
primarily devoted on iron chimneys,
upon which it is most commonly found
to make more convenient the period
ical inspection of the chimney, and to
make the chimney easier of access for

INSIGNIA ON OVERCOATS.

Prise tome Ratloaal Gaarsl
During the recent convention of the
national guard officers at the Palmer
house several officers appeared wear
ing uniform overcoats with the hood
hanging down the back and bright new-
shoulder straps glaring on the shoul
ders. These officers seemed to be un
conscious of the unusual display, says
a Chicago exchange. Landsmen wear
insignia on the sleeves of their over
coats, narrow festoons of black silk
braid being all that is needed to tell
the grade. So as these officers entered
the clubrrom with shoulder straps out
side their ovi rcoats considerable com
"What's the meaning of that, do you
think?" was the question of one
grizzled colonel, who has participated
in two wars.
"Give it up," his companion an

men will wear shoulder straps on their
A closer inspection revealed the fact
that the ofneers under discussion were
naval militiamen. The uniform pre
scribed for naval officers on shore duty
calls for shoulder straps on the over
coat, and they were simply complying
with regulations. One cf them ex
pressed his disgust because of the en
forced display and consequent ridicule
from those acquainted with the law,
but he was powerless.
Kel.Shapest Life Preservers.
A practicable life preserter, or life
float, at last seems to have been in
vented, which meetc all the deficiencies
that have therefore characterized
devices of this nature. The difficulty
with most contrivances for this pur
pose is, primarily especially in the
case of cork waistcoats that they are
so bulky as to impede action to a very
considerable degree, if not altogether;
but this is avoided in the new belt,
known as the Loulton float, which, as
explained and illustrated In the
French journals, has the appearance
of a Conger eel with conical ends
Made of sheet rubber. It passes round
the neck, across the chest and round
the waist, and can be inflated in one
minute by the mouth; its weight is
about one pound, and it is alike flexi
ble, light and easily placed in position.

Worries! Eaoaath to Lose
It seems that Admiral Schley and
Capt. Cock sat down to dinner while
the Brooklyn was chasing the unfor
tunate but gallant Colon. There's
mcriean assurance for you, says the
Kans.1 City Star. At the close of a
tremendously important battle, which
settled a war and changed the map of
the world, the commi.i-.dcrs on the
United States flagship, pursuing at top
speed the last of the enemy, whose
guns still belched defiance, sat down to
dinner, which, no doubt, was served in
style and with a ttrict regard forgas
"I will have a bit of the tomato
soup," remarked the admiral. "Ah,
that must have been a five and one-half
inch shell, eh, captain?"
"Sounds like it pass ma the celery,"
replies Capt. Cook.
With the cbecte and black coffee and
cigars the enemy is overhauled and
driven ashore, the Spanish sailors dot
ting the sea like drowning rats and the
aged Cerrera tearing his beard in the
agony of disaster. Then, after quaffing
a chartreuse, the American admiral ap
pears on deck and orders all boats low

lives of the saturated Spaniards.

Among the most valuable eorre
spondenta of the Philadelphia Com
mercial museum in India and other
oriental countries are American mis
sionaries. Two of these, from whou-.
considerable valuable information has
been received, have suggested as a
means of introducing and popularizing
American products a floating exposi
tion. Their idea is that this vhould be
on board a vessel and rhould include a
full and complete collection of Amer
ican goods. After spending some time
at Indian ports tbe vessel could visit
various Chinese ports, and give the
Chinese an opportunity to see what the
United States has to sell.
The museum's correspondent says
that there is an opening in China for
the disposal of a limited quantity of
second-hand watches. The native
watch repairers are skillful and work
cheaply. They will take a watch that
a jeweler at home would not think
worth repairing and fix it' up so as to
get several years' running out of it.
Old watches, ihe missionary thinks,
which accumulate on tbe hands of
jewelers could be disposed of for the
value of the silver in them.

local newspaper: "A Maori chief who

man) who wants to become pakarapu

lots of goods, and does not pay for
them. Be then gets all the money he
can together, say, $2,000, and puts all of
it, except 5, away where no one can
find it. With the 5 he goes to a judg
of the court and tells him he wants to
become pakaraxu. The judge theri
calls all the lawyers together, likewise
ell the men to whom the pakeha owea
money, and he says: This man is
pakarapu, but Le wishes to give you
all that he has got, and so he has asked
me to divide this S among you all.
