It is a tricycle, weighing nearly a ton and t-taudiut? fully 11 feet high. It requires nine )ii n to operate it one to direct Its course ami eight to propel its pedals. It attains a great speed, too, consider ing its weight, lii in capable of over 80 miles an lioiir. Its great size has attracted for it ninth attention, says the New York World. Its driving wheels are each 11 feet in diameter and weigh in the ItoSTON'S U10 TKlf'VCI.K. neighborhood of '250 pounds. They are rnbi-er tir. I and titted wih ball bear ings to facilitate their smooth running. They are driven by chain gearing, con necting with a double shaft. Four ets of pedal connect with each shaft, the men ntting in a row between the whe. Is. Th front steering wheel is over seven feet in diameter. It is controlled by a chain and wheel easily handled by one man He sits in front and guides its com'., evading obstacles with little diili. :-l:y. )ji a level road one man could read ily p i li it along from lehind, but at Uasl three would le necessary to move it I y the pedals.

Louis lire hrge enough to tmpport teams in each circuit, says the New York Com mercial Advertiser. In the big cities it is an all da job to go to a ball game. For instance, in Chicago, with tho Na tional league pnrk in its present loca tion and another strong league having ground on the South Side, the attend ance vrould not be visibly affected at the League park. It will be very easy to start a baseball war, but it will be much easier and letter for all concerned to get together and have an understand ing before the new project is fairly launched. It will be a bitter pill to swallow for the monopolists who now control the game, but there is a surfeit of good players, and it would do little good for the old clubs to seize the best talent in the new league by paying fancy salaries, as such action would displease tho public, the players would bo stamped as traitors, and even then their plaees could be well tilled from the ranks of the minor leagues with fair prospects of developing fast and dangerous testus. A war is all right in its place, but diplomacy is far better in the approaching crisis in baseball af fairs, and when the new league ap proaches the condition that forestalls an extended lease of life it will bo a great surprise if a peace treaty is not dratted a'nd everything arranged satis factorily to the on 'S who dare to enter the field that has ko long Wn occupied by tho present incumbents, the men who have hurt n j'.Ttne far more by their bickerings than it has ever suf fered as thn result of rowdyism on the field. Growth of Golf. The growth of golf in this country can best bo judged by a reference to the number of players, says the New York Times. A few years ago such a thing as a golf stick was arcely heard of, and the few links that existed were in the west. Now there are in the United States no fewer than 1,200 players, or practically twite ; many as in Great Uritain. the homo of the game. Sticks are daily in evidence, ami links are numerous. The men from the vst, too. have within that time been forced to Uiwdown to the eastern ers, who are now the acknowledged champions in this country and are rap idly nearing th state of perfection of the old country players. Hut while tho growth in numbers has leeu so great it has U'en too great for the gmd of the links. In other wcrds, in order to keep pace with the tremendous and sudden growth in the number of players links have Ineii imioverished. as it were, in a day. The result is that there aro in the United States only a very few real ly first class links and certainly a very limited nnmler that can at all legin to compare with the English and Scottish links. However, all this will no doubt be remedied in a few Beasons. after which it might not bo a bad idea to try to inaugurnte an annual golf contest between tho old country and the United States tea ins.

For a hand bath (a bath given to the body by use of the hands only or by sponge or cloth I plan a handful of salt lu a basin as ordinarily tilled for wash lug. Allow the salt to dissolve or has ten the action by stirring It with the hand. The water should be as cold as you have vitality to withstand. Use no soap. Bathe the entire body. Io not neglect the face and neck lu the free use of the salt water. This bath has an exhilarating Inllu ence, tones the entire system and gives to the skin a healthful condition that amply repays for the time and trouble involved. If used In the winter, it will be an excellent prcvvutlve of colds, besides being a substitute for face cosmetics. No chapping, no roughness of the skin and no clogging of the pores wlll trouble the persou who systematically and regularly takes a bath of this sort. Ordinary table salt or lock salt will do. but will not do so well. The sea salt contains medicinal pro Arties not found In the others. Whether one ex ercises or not the body should receive a daily hand bath of cold or cool wa ter, especially in the summer, either upon rising or before retiring. Ed ward It. Wanna n In Ladles' Home Journal. Thackeray and the Cabmau. Thackeray loved to relate Jokes on himself, ami one he especially enjoyed was about a Heading hackmau. The author was unacquainted with the town, and the monwnt he emerged from the railway station he told a hackney coachman to drive him to the nearest hotel. The driver close 1 the door ceremoniously, mounted his box and they started. In half a minute the cab was at a standstill and Thackeray saw the cabman at the door, bowing to him to come out. lie did so with out a word, and found that he was at the portico of the station hotel, which he had failed to 'see was not a dozen yards off. Hut he handed'the man a shilling and was entering tlio hotel, rather pleased with his own sajig frold. when he was amazed toVeethe cabman taking off his coat and (offering to "light him for the other' six pense." It appears that on that (day a resolution of the Heading town council had come Into ojM'ratlon empowering hackney coach men to charge elghteenpem e for any distance within the township. This was Its (list fruits! Itls unnecessary to add that the cabman; gut his money and Thackeray a good story to tell at the clubs. Intermitted tin- I'rtiKruiume.

Detroit Fn.e Pres. W. C. T. U. COLUMN. The Army Canteen. Judge Slmonton, of Ilarrisburg, I'a., has decided that an army canteen for tho sale of liquor to soldiers cannot bo carried on without a regular license from the courts. This decision was made in the ease of two men who were arrested on complaint of the Anti-Sa loon League of the state for maintain iur a canteen at Camp Meade. Coun sel for tho defendants argued that they were acting under instructions of the commandant ot the camp, who was acting under authority of military law. Judge Simontou Mtld that he did not recognize such a law when in conflict with the law of the state; that tin United States had no authority to is sue a liccn-.e to sell liquor in the states lie directed the jury to find a verdict of guilty ami then susjHnded sentence At the same time he nolilied ail con cerned that if thero were any more vio lations of tho law ho would sentence them all. The commandant of the camp promised that the canteen would bo suppressed. I'hhh it On. Apropos of the "bugs and things" in whiskey, the following extract from a recent sermon by the He v. T. DeWitt Talmago will be of interest: A celebrated doctor of Franco has recently discovered something which all drinkers ought to know. He has found out that alcohol in every shape, whetho of wine or brandy or beer, con tains parasitic life, called bacillus X)tumaD:r. Hy a powerful microscope these living things are discovered, and when you take strong drink you take them into the stomach and then into your blood, and getting into tho crim son coals of life they go Into every ths suo of your ls)dy, and your entire or ganism Is taken possession of by these noxious infinitesimals. When in de lirium tremens a man sees every form of reptilian life, it is only these para sites of thn brain in exaggerated size. Jt is uot a hallucination that tho vic tim is suffering from. Ho only sees in tho room what is actually crawling and rioting in his own brain. Every lime you take strong drink you swallow these maggots, and every tlmo the im biber of alcohol in any shape feels ver tigo or rheumatism or nausea, it is only the jubilee of these maggots. Ef forts are being made for the discovery of some germicide that can kill the parasites of alcoholism, but tho only thing that will ever extirpate them is abstinence, to which I would before God swear all young men and old.

"You see that little horse over there," said Major Tom Williams, rtandlng on tho edg of the sidewalk viewing a small black pony. "That horse has moro of the traditional horse sense than his size would show for." He continued, "Watch him." The major whistled a few times, and the little horse, which was nibbling from a bale of hay on the sidewalk, raised his head and crossed the street. He brought the can to which he was attached to a Htandftill just in front of the major. "You see," said Major Williams, "that horse has an eye for distance.
