As soon as the next level Is cut the company will tremely scientific process set forth in the will to tan his (Sanborn's) skin into leather and from it have a dram made.

Statisticians sometimes have queer ideas. Une of them has amused himself by calculating how much energy, water and coal it would take to move the earth a foot, supposing that it was subjected throughout its masr to a force equivalent to terrestrial gravitation. This is a gratuitous supposition, for in spite of its enormous mass the earth weighs nothing. Starting with tbe fact that the earth's mass is about 0, 100 million-inilliou-million tons, our statistician calculates that we should require 70,000,000,000 years for a 10,000 horsepower engine to move our globe a foot. ,The boiler that should feed this engine would vaporize a quantity of water that would cover the whole face of tbe globe Mnaleal Family.

The St James Budget tells the following somewhat unbelievable story gleaned from the columns of the London Times: Ben Wolff, special correspondent at Ths Tageblatt baring an Idle day somewhere between Kiao Chon and Tilng-tao, went out in quest of adventures with his dog, Schuster, and his olerk.

A Glasgow doctor, dying some tea years ago, left the whole of his estate to his two sisters, and then came this extraordinary clause: "To my wife, as a recompense for deserting ms and leaving me in pesos, I expect the said sister Elisabeth to make her a gift of 10 shillings sterling, to buy bar a pocket handkerchief to weep in after my decease." A Mr. Sydney Dlokenson bequeathed to his wife tbe sum of 60,000, "on oondition that she undertakes to pass two hours a day st my graveside, for the ten years following my decease, ir company with her sister, whom I have reason to know she loathes worse than she does me. " Another husband stated that he would have left bis widow 10,000 if she bad allowed him to read bis newspaper in peace, but as she alwaya commenced playing and sLzging when be started to read be left bar only 1,000. 8uoh instances could be mntiplied Indefinitely, but one other is worthy of nets. .

A lawsuit followed, but ths Judge held that the testator should have inserted the word always" and gave Judgment in favor of the widow, who the day after re-entered the state of matrimony. Thus ths husband's little plan for preventing bis widow marrying again failed. - But the most curious will whioh the writer baa ever come across is that of M. Zalesky, a Polish landlord, who died in 1888, leaving property valued at 100,000 rabies. His will was inclosed in an envelope bearing tbe words, "To fie Opened After My Death.
