"Hands Off" was Jlrst published In Harper's Magazine anony mously , ns the author was curious to know how the religious press would accept the theological doctrine Involved. The nuthor observes : "I was sadly disappointed , however. The critics In the religious press did not know whether the doctrine was right or wrorg , because they did not know who wrote the story. And , therefore , al though it was the only story In the num ber which cnmo near them or 'heirs , I never could learn Hint one of them paid It the honor of mentioning it or Its subject or the questions H Involved.

Before entering congress Mr. Stevens dla yconinn service In the cause of popular edu- ratlnn nnd for various other measures In the legislature nf Pennsylvania. But his greatest distinction was won In the house of representatives , whcro his nnlllnchlng opposition to slavery nnd Ills valorous lead ership as n radical during the wnr for the union won for him the title of "tho Great Commoner , " n title not exactly appropriate , but Indicating emphatic admiration for his qualities ns n political leader. Mr. McCnll hns described ttio career and character of M ? . Stevens with force nnd discrimination , nnd has produced one of the most Interest ing volume : ! In the series of American statesmen.

To paw In review the events of 3,000 years nnd embody the whole In n pocket voitimo and make It readable for young people was nn small undertaking. The nuthor calls at tention to ttio fact that It Is extremely dif ficult to clothe In picturesque language the details of a story extending over so va t n range nnd bring within the compass of n single volume. The writer has conio as near to the mark ns any one Is ever likely to and the work can bo recommended to nny- ono dcsllous of an nccurnta knowledge of Spanish history , but without sufficient leis ure to peruse the more voluminous works.

The case in which this decision has been cached is one of the biggest foreclosure suits that has been on the docket of the district court. In December , 1S92 , Horatio and Sarah M.

A motion to set aside Hip verdict and grant a now trial In the case In which Carl Mcrschclm secured a $6,000 verdict against August Arrlens for alleged alienation of his wife's affections , has been filed in the dis trict court. The motion is based on the usual grounds nnd also on the allegation that one of the jurors was so violently prej udiced that ho was unable to render a fair verdict. In examining the Jurors every man was asked whether ho had ever been interested In a case that Involved n similar issue. Joseph Cuff answered In the negative nnd was accepted as a. juror. It Is now charged that Cuff .became violently jealous of his wife about six years ago nnd accused her of criminal Intimacy with Thomas Campbell , a man 70 years old , who walked a couple of blocks with her on her way homo from church. IIo afterwards secured a divorce and affidavits tending to establish these facts are filed with the motion. Sprinkle Xul Guilty. Uollo Sprlnklo was declared not guilty of an alleged attempt to commit a criminal as sault on Mrs. George Pctteys. This was on the motion of the prosecuting attorney , who admitted that the evidence was wholly Insufficient to warrant a conviction.

Mill I'liiiihliTi-d Ton Uniim-rom for Cell cm I llliiinliutl Ion , Not much hns been heard about ncclyleno gas lately In the columns of the newspapers of the country. A good many people , s.ijs the Hartford Times , started out n year or t o ago with the Idea that there were for tunes to bo made In Introducing acetylene gas generators throughout the country , nnd that It would be easy to persuade people to buy nnd use them. But these sanguine per sons soon found that In competition with either ordinary gns or electricity for light- lug there \\.is no Held for ncctlyene so long as calcium cnrhlde continued to cost 4 cents n pound. Acetylene given n very pleasant light nnd It can be used with safety where proper precautions nro taken , but thus far there hns been no Inclination to ndept It except In buildings having no connection with gas or electric lighting systems. However - ever , this may not continue to bo the case. .V very Important Improvement In the method of producing carbide Is reported from Chicago. The News of that city says : "A eerles of experiments In the produc tion of calcium carbide was recently con ducted at the Armour Institute by Prof. Frormnn , head of the electrical department of the Institute , nnd W. A. Premier , n chem ist , who graduated from the Institute several years ngo. The apparatus used was n hugo nrc lamp enclosed in lire brick In the in terior ot a. furnace. The upper electrode was hollow and through it was fed n powder composed of CO per cent of common lime nnd 40 per cent of coke. This powder being carried through the upper carbon or elec trode directly Into the electric Maine , It wad melted by itho Intense heat and mndo a light so brilliant that It was Impossible to gaze on It without protecting the eyes with dark- colored glasses. All the power of the ulcctrle plant of tbo Institute was turned Into the electrodes nnd calcium carbide In a molten state ran away from -the - machine. It was estimated that the carbide was produced nt a cost of half a cent per pound. Many chemists nnd electricians have been at work trying to cheapen the process of making calcium carbide , for on this depends the cheapness o.f acetylene gas. Prof. Freeman says that the great point gained In the ex periments at Armour institute was the con tinuous production of the carbide. 'We have demonstrated , ' said ho , 'that it can bo pro duced continuously by feeding the ground llmo nnd carbon Into the furnace. This is something that never was accomplished be fore. With n furnace there IB no doubt that the carbide could bo produced la largo quan tities. ' " The only largo source of supply of car- bldo at present ii the Niagara Falls factory and the prlce > of the product is 4V cents a pound , or $90 per ton. It It can bo sold at 1 cent a pound and yield 100 per cent prollt to the makers by the new process , then the use of it will surely Increase very largely. But It is doubtful If the attempt will over bo made to concentrate the gns in largo reservoirs. Acetylene gas Is not a good thing to have on hand. It should be con sumed about as fast ns it is produced from the dampened carbide. The smaller the plant the more safely it can bo handled. The insurance companies adopted regulations some tlmo slnco covering the use of it in certain places , 'but ' it is not yet favored for largo establishments. Wo notice that Mr. Edward Atkinson , president of the Boston Manufacturers' Mutual Fire company , in view of recent renewed efforts to Introduce calcium carbide and acetylene gas into com mercial and manufacturing establishments , has published a cautionary circular In which bo says : " "Tlio purpose of this caution is to call upon each and all of our members not to make use either of calcium or acetylene gas without full advisement and consulta tion at. the time the proposed application Is to bo made. It may happen that the use of these materials may bo made safe. At pres ent they nro not deemed so. Therefore , the Introduction of cither , without the concent of the underwriters , would make an altera tion in the condition of tbo risk not con templated in the original contract. It Is therefore suggested that no new method of lighting shall bo permitted , even for experi ment , without consultation.

Some ono fias asked what Is meant by tbo statement "that nn ordinary man can converse with n vocabulary of only fiOO dif ferent words. " The Fortnightly Review somu nine years ago said that "the number of words In use among the Russian peas antry did not exceed from 100 to 200. " This statement wo should deem Incorrect. However , we have nn authority who writes that "a Ruoslan peasant is verbose when ho fins a vocabulary of from 300 to 400 words. " It bas been stated over nnd over again , says the New York Times , that In English there are 250,000 wtrds , and the phllologer adds that this large number is the accumu lation ot many centuries , nnd that nothing like that number could "have been kept ex cept throupli the influence of literature. ' ' Now , it Is highly possible that the English words , by an adoptive process nnd natural cause : : , will not diminish , but Increase. ATI- wo to Include In those 250,000 words dln- lectlo English ? Somebody asks , "Does anybody know till tbcso 250,000 words ?
