Alira maclieil Philarlfilnliln. cr iwv - x from London with tho visible proofs of what may have been part of a groat traRMiy. rvmtiiin Bennett savs that when in Ciidoeoan on tho morning of March 29 11:1 olgi'i't resembling a boat was sighted nliout two points off tho starboard bow. Xlic steamer bore down on it, and tho (ajiti'.in was astonished to find that it was an rnlinary doghouso lashed to a jiiccc (if ico. A boat wns launched to iuvostignto and it was then found that tho hi'ii.-o contained an Irish terrier and a lit!:T "f six pups that wore apparently not nwro than 48 hours old. In a cor ner i.f tho house, which was half filled willi fresh hay, there was found a wo olen vessel containing a largo quan tity f canned meats, whilo in another contor was a vessel of fresh water. Tin1 pieco of ice to which tho house was lashed was a perfect cube, measur ing about 3 feet each way, and ono end rf the sides was carved in largo Eliza iK tbau letters, which wero still discern ible, tho Latin phrase, ' ' Esto Perpetua. ' ' On top of tho houso floated a tiny American flag, and nailed to tho roof was a c ard, 0 inches by 8, upon which was written in a woman's hand: Tho Attest plaeo for man to dio Is wheio ho dies for man. Thrro was nothing whatever to indi cate how the dog got there nor was there anything to show how long she had been adrift. Captain Bennett thinks, however, that tho animal must have been at least three weeks on her iceboat. Tho dog and her pups aro still alivo and great pets of tho Sweet Alice ship's company. IIow to Fill Tour Potpourri Jar. Pretty soon tho roses will bo blossom ing in all tho country flower gardens, and tho girls will bo filling their pot pourri jars. Any girl can make fragrant potpourri inexpensively by following theso directions: Gather your flowers in tho morning, leave them in a cool and shady place till the dew has evaporated from them, then put them in a glass jar, sprinkling salt over each half inch layer. After this preparation has stood for ten days mix with it layers consisting of equal weights of cloves, allspice and cuina mon, coarsely ground; then closo tho jar tightly and let it stand in a dark plaeo for three weeks. At tho cud of this timo remove tho "stock" to your potpourri jar and mix with it layers composed of tho following: Ono part mace and two parts allspice and cloves, coarsely ground ; two parts of broken cinnamon, four parts of powdered orris root, 10 parts of dried lavender leaves and a bit of grated nutmeg. A few drops of essential nils, such as rose, geranium bitter almond or orange blossom, should be dropped upon tho leaves, and over all should bo poured some fs:vorito toilet water or cologne.

A Bengal postofflce superintendent received from one of his Babn in- pi ctoi-s this report of an accident at a river which had to bo forded owing to the breakdown of a bridge: As I was to pass tho river or water through my cart for absence, of any boat some alligators ran on niv oxen hence tho oxen getting fear forcibly took away my cart in an abyss below tho water of 12 feet which the cartman failed to obstruct1.

" London Stand ard. mil Was Fooled. 'Seen anything of a feller round hero with red whiskers an a squint?" queried Bill Sykes of Newberg, as he adjusted his red comforter and blew a sonorous blast from his bibulous nose preparatory to taking a little stimulant, causo if you havo I've got business with him. Ho como to my house yes terday, an after talking around a spell an telling Hauner ho thought she was my darter an making a fool of her he said ho would havo to inspect tho well.

Then I look ed at it, an say, fellers, that water was full of alligators a foot long microbes ho called 'cm. Tho upshot was I bought the mikyscopo and somo stuff to put in tho well to kill tho animals, an I paid him $10, but 'twas partly Banner's fault." Here Bill looked around defiantly and continued: "That stuff was salt an wa ter an there wun't no bugs. They were painted on the glass to tho mikyscope. And with a rather derogatory remark about the honesty of man generally Bill left in quest of the man with the squint, Dowagiae Republican. Effects of Imagination. Some years ago a number of students in Europe were concerned in a chargo which demonstrated tho powerful effects of imagination. In a frolic they donned disguises and arrested another student, whom they tried in a theatrically ar ranged and dimly lighted chamber and condenmed to death. For several hours they kept their horror stricken victim in a darkened room, and having inform ed him that ho was to be beheaded band aged his eyes and led him to another apartment. A crowd was assembled, tut restrain ed their mirth as the victim of the practical joke was forced to kneel down and placed his uecK across tuo spinaie of a three legged stool. They prepared for a great outburst of laughter as the neck of tho poor young fellow was touched with a slender cane, but instead had to shed tears of regret for the ac tion, as immediately upon being touch ed with the cane tho young man tell dead. Magnetizing a Soap Bubble. Oxygen is a million times less "at tractable" or "susceptible" than iron, and therefore experiments to show its attractaiility havo to bo extremely del icate. It was with one of them tliat Professor Fleming concluded his lecture. He took a soap bubble soap and water, by tho way, being diamaguetic and filling it with air placed it in tho field of a very strong electro magnet. Tho bubble did not quiver. Then ho filled another bubble with oxygen, and again turned on the current Instantaneously tho bubblo inclined itself toward tho magnet. It bobbed back again when tho current wns turned off, but at a second attempt, when again tho current was turned on, tho attraction so unsettled it tliat it burst London Graphic. Gunpowder Explosion. The actual chemical result of tho ex plosion of a charge of gunpowder cannot lv told with accuracy.

Whcro They Marry to Kill Time. Ono strange feature of Australia so cial lifo is tho perfectly casual way in which men marry for no ostensible pur pose except tho purpose of vanishing wearily around tho corner immediately after the ceremony. In a Sydney case now on hand the husband, it is alleged, married in 1HU and shortly afterward mado his tired, indifferent exit around tho corner and never camo back. In lS'W he married again and immediately faded away up the street Ho never liv ed with his second wife. When ho was arrested on a chargo of aggravated hai-c-n he offered no explanation whatever.

Thn Theater Hair. .It':; a far ory from war to tho theater hat, bat women wore ever inconsequent, and even in tho more vital excitement they find time to wago minor conflict.) having very different objects from a fray at large. Ono of theso took placo in a theater tho other afternoon. A wo man was ushered to a seat in front of a wholo row of other women. Tho wom an, with her customary conscientious ness, removed her hat. "Oh, dear I" went up in a groan from tho woman di rectly behind the newcomer. "Why, what's the matter?" chorused tho other women. "I can't see, 1 ' went on the com plainant " When tho curtain goes up, I don't believe I shall bo ublo to see a thing." "But sho's taken her hat off," said tho other women. "Yes," admit ted tho complainant, "sho has, but" in tones intended unmistakably for tho newcomer's ear "sho's got such a lot of hair and it's piled on top of her head so high that it's just as bad as a hat." Murmurs of mingled pity and indignation hero broke forth from tho other women, tho complainant finally declaring, "Women havo no more right to wear their hair liko that to the thea ter than they have to keep on their hats." But tho jokoof it was that after awhilo the newcomer had tho curiosity to turn round and take a look at tho complainant. Sho particularly wanted to see what sort of hair tho woman had and how sho woro it, but in this sho was frustrated. Tho complainant had on her hat. Philadelphia Times. Theater Nurses. The manager of ono of Philadelphia's theaters has started a novelty, which might well bo copied by all theatrical managers. Ho has added to his corps of attendants a trained nurse, who will attond to any caso of sudden illness which may occur when a crowded audi ence is present. Very often a doctor has to be summoned to attend to somo ono seized with faintuess or even a fit of a more or less dangerous character, and in these cases it would be a great com fort and convenience to have a nurse on tho spot, and in most instances further aid would bo needless. Philadelphia Press. A Building For Children. In tho Transmississippi exposition at. Omaha thero is to boa children's build ing. It will bo a special feature of tho educational department, which is in charge of tho women. The object is to havo a home for children on the exposi tion grounds, filled with everything that can interest and amuse young peo ple and whero they will be taken in chargo and entertained.

Woman's Trib une. Against Smoking. Tho young women students at tho University of Michigan have taken a stand against smoking in the corridors of the, building or on the campus. They say they are obliged to pass through crowds of male students, nearly all of them puffing out great clouds ol nau seating cigarette smoke. The fumes sat urate both corridors and recitation rooms and make many of the girls fee. sick. Woman's Journal. I'ntrlotic Hanccelt. During the siege of Eoston General Washington consulted congress upon tho propriety of bombarding the town of Boston. Mr. Hancock was then presi dent of congress. After General Wash ington's letter was read a solemn silenco ensued. This was broken by :i member making a motion that the Vuso should resolve itself into a committee cf the wholo in order that Mr. Hancock might give his opinion upon tho important subject, as ho was dee ly interested from having all his estate in Boston. After ho left tho chair he addressed tho chairman of tho committee cf the wholo in the following words, "It is true, sir, nearly all tho property I have in tho world is in houses and other real estuto in tho town of Boston, but if the expul sion of tho British army from it and tho liberties of our country require their being burned to ashes issue tho order for that purpose immediately. " Some Tough Old Nuts. Not all centenarians have been para gons of all tho virtues. Thomas Whit tington, who lived to bo 104, was a habitual drunkard, drinking only Lon don gin, of which ho consumed from a pint to 1)4 pints daily. Philip Laroquo went to bed drunk at least two nights in tho week until ho was 100. At 1)2 ho cut four now teeth. John do la Somet, 130 years old, was an inveterate smoker. Several famous old people wero ex tremely addicted to matrimony. Owen Duffy, who lived to bo 122, married his third wifo at 116, "by whom ho had a sou and a daughter. " Francis Hongo, a Venetian, was iivo times married and was tho father of 49 children. At the age of 100 his white hair fell out and a new crop of tho original color camo in. At tho .ago of 112 ho had two new teeth. A Berlin Scandal. A Berlin physician of standing says, ill a medical paper, that the nurses in tho private hospitals arc in league with the undertakers, who distribute among them circulars offering as much us 2" by way of gratuity for a good job. He calls the attention of his professional colleagues to this infamous combina tion, which has been in force, so ho de clares, for half a century nnd exists in other largo towns. He suggests the em ployment whenever it is possible of wo men working in sisterhoods or actuated by somo higher motive than the mero pursuit of run. Berlin Correspond ence. I'uiulully True.

" lie finds that tho vast majority i f pee; !o nro timid in their youth. A eonsidi rable minority remain timid all their lives. Timidity leads to medita tion and analysis. It outers into tho temperament of the philosopher and mau of science. Per contra, a thoroughly stupid man is seldom timid. Virgil, Horace, Benjamin Constant, Michelct and Amiel wero all notably timid men. M. Dugas notes that in tho intellectual man you aro apt to find great speculative hardihood combined with a practical timidity. Carlylo's is the typical ease. Tho mere thought of having to order a coat or buy a pair of gloves caused him tho most acuto dis comfort. In its extreme typo timidity ap proaches tho malady of tho will which the medical dictionaries calbagoraphobia the dread of tho crowd, of tho gazo of other people. All public speakers havo known this feeling even, it is said, tho brazen M. Rochefort. Cicero, used as ho was to the rostrum, was prevented by "blue funk" from delivering his "Mi Ionian" speech. M. Sareey, who lias lectured every week fo- 20 years, says ho has never been ablo to conquer his timidity.

Voteran actors, when they aro worth their salt, seldom get over their "stage fright " Heating Capacity of Wood. A writer in Dio Staats Zeitnng cor rects a very common supposition in re gard to the heating capacity of wood, the most notable fact in tho case being that such a practical and easily demon strable error should so long havo pre vailed namely, that tho heating ca pacity of hardwood is greater than that of soft wood. Tho fact, as ascertained by repeated determinations, is that tho greatest heating power is possessed by one ( f tho softest varieties of such ma terial viz, tho linden. Taking its heat ing capacity for tho unit, tho second bei t heater is also a soft wood fir, with .fit) heating power; next follow tho elm and tho pino, with ,0H; willow, chestnut and larch, with .07; maple and spruco fir, with. 90; black poplar, with. 05; alder and whito birch, with .ill only. Then como tho hard oak, with .02; tho locust and tho whito beech, with .01, and the red beech, with .00. Theso examples leave no doubt of tho general fact that hard wood heats the least. London Hook Thieves. Suckling, tho book seller, gave me quite a little chat cn book thieves tho other day. "Book thieves," said he, "nro most plentiful. They are also most i.i-.oaciouH i:.i disposing of their stolen wares. Cno of them did me rather neat ly not long ago.

Two women, both of the same name and both cf whom died in IJellevne, were taken to the deadhonse at about the same time. When the lnorKxio keeper caiudit the blind iiniii's right hand and guided it to an upturned face, ho faid, "No, no; that's not my Mary!" Tiie drawer was closed, und the next one was pulled out. The sightless man laid down his stick this time and used both hands. His face was transfig ured as the tips of his lingers rested on the sharp set, cold features. "Mary," he whispered, "I have found you, dear! How thin your face has Rrowu! How cold you are, Mary how cold!" The blind man had made no mistake. The deail woman had been his wife. A Story of Pattl. " Patti once went on an excursion with a party of Americans, among whom was a young chap who could play ou a ban jo and sing "coon" and "rug time" songs liko a, professional. He did not intend that tho great singer should jndgo of tho quality of his art, but by accident f-ho had a chance, and to the young man's joy sho fell hilariously in love with every "rag timo" melody ho sang. This was a secret between the two until ono evening Patti consented to sing for the company.
