Presently the bell rang again, and "Gas Bills Are Getting Higher?" met their giae. They tried to laugh at this, but the effort was almost a failure. However, they looked into «aeh other's eyes with a seriousness they had never exhibited before. The next placard— A sorrow shared Is but Unit tt trouble, But ft joy that's nhiirod Is ft Joy raiio double pleased them immensely. Hero tho bashful younfrman took her hand in his, something 1 he had often wished to do, but until then had never mustered up sufficient courage to undertake.

It was followed by: Let us, then, be up and flolng With a heart for any f»to, Lot's have done with ending wooing: please propoM or emigrate. • In five minutes more the pledge had been made and Eoxlana led her accepted lover from the room to make wuy for her next younger sister and her beau.

They Are Getting to Bo Quite Numerous In the West. All of Thorn Have a Deilre to ReMh Wituhlncton — Dotnohmonti Com. miiiidrMl br Kelly »nd Frye Now oil the W»y. Thu industrial army, composed of unemployed and vuprant persons on the Pivciflc coast, which left San Francisco early in April, has been exposed to varied experiences. It fared well enough until Oydon, on the Union Pacific railroad, was reached. Ilero tho army wa,s .stranded for several weeks, "GEN." KE.-.LY. owing 1 to the resolute action of Gov. West, who insisted that the railroad company which had brought them to that point in a train of twenty-four Imx cars should carry them back again, lie obtained an injunction from the United States district court, forbidding 1 Uic company to enter tho town with its train, and ordering it to transport the men beyond the territorial limits. Neither the company nor tho men, however, paid any attention to the order, but the "onward march" was arrested for tho time, tho army, meanwhile, being fed by the citizens. Whilo in camp at this point n. census was taken by order of (iov. West, and it was found" that, contrary to general expectation, a large majority of tho men were 7iative-born Americans. The average n(?e was about twenty-four years. The total number was nine hundred amVsixty-eig'ht. When Omaha was reached fresh troubles were encountered by the industrials. They were not permitted to enter the town, and accordingly went into camp fivo miles east, of Council Bluffs, where they wero exposed to a pood deal of sufferin;;- from stormy weather, Tho railroad companies refused to furnish free transportation, whereupon tho Knights of Labor made a demonstration, in which they threatened to compel compliance with the demands of the "army," and went BO far as to actually seize a train and/run it to the army camp. Commander Kelly, however, declined to avail himself o'f it, sayinp that he was a law-abiding "GEN."'FnVE. citizen. Fora time it .ooked aa If there would be an outbreak of violence, but it was happily avoided. Later on camp was broken, and tho journey eastward resumed on foot and In wagons supplied by farmers along the route, until De3 Moines was reached. The "army" appears to be much better organized and disciplined than was Coxey's detachment. Besides Gen. Kelly there are two colonels, an aid- do-camp, sergeant major, twenty-two captains, the same number of sergeants and lieutenants, a chief of commissary with twenty-five aids, a hospital steward and six aids. The men take no obligation upon joining the army, except to obey their officers and the laws of tho states through which they may pass. Kelly, the commander, as sketched by tho Cheyenne Leader, ie a mild-mannered young man of thirty-two years, a printer by trade, who has been for'a long time out of employment. "His hair and mustache are brown, and his complexion as fresh as a school girl's. His vices apparently are few. He declined a drink of Bourbon with a gesture when proffered by a wicked citizen. Ho said he used no tobacco when offered a cigar He is evidently a man of considerable refinement and culture." Another "army" which is attracting »ttention.In the west is that of "Gen. Frve," which is making its way toward Washington on foot and by such conveyances as offer. The army at this writing numbers some two hundred persons. Other bodies are organizing in various western centers, and •with the coming of pleasant weather the country is likely to be overrun with idle men, some of whom find it easier to prey upon the mistaken sympathy of rural communities than to earn a living by honest work.

In 1788 Cotopaxi ejected its blazing rockets ijiore than 8,000 feet above Its crater, while nineteen years later the roar of the flaming mass, as it made Its exit, was heard 000 miles. In 1797 Tun- guaragna, one of tho fjreat peaks of the Andes, discharged such torrents of mud and lava as to dam the adjoining; river, opened new lakes, and made a deposit 000 feet deep and twenty miles lonp in a valley averaging over 1,000 feet wide. In I':i7 Vesuvius emitted a molten stream that passed through Tcrre Del Greco containing :iS,OUO,000 cubic yards of solid matter. The town w;is a second time destroyed in 1703. when this volcano belched out 45,000,000 cubic yards. In 1.7HO Etna evolved a hoarse rumble and sp;it out u blazing river that covered eighty-four square miles with boilintf hivn from ten to forty feet deep. Mount Rosini was formed on this occasion of sand, ashes and scoria —a cone-shaped structure near Nicho- lisa, two miles in circumference and over 4,000 feet high. Vesuvius in A, J). 70 vomited forth an amount of matter whose bulk far excelled the mountain itself. In 1700 Etna disgorged more than twenty times its own mass. Syria, Egypt and Turkey have received qoutributiyns of ashes irom Vesuvius, From this crater Stones weighing BOO pounds were thrown to Pompeii, distant six miles, in tho memorable eruption of A. 1). 70, Cotopaxi has cast a rock containing 100 cubic yards a-distance of nine miles, and which, calculating the angle o£ ascension, must have readied an altitude of sixteen miles. On several occasions this volcano has shot up a solid stream to a height of 0,000 feet. In lSl, r > a volcanic outpour in Java covered 400 square miles with ashes and lava and of a population of l. r >,000 only twenty escaped. During the terrible earthquake of tho autumn of 1S83 twenty large and small Javanese volcanoes wero vomiting at the same time. • Fifty square miles of land, including two villages, wholly disappeared, and a section of mountain chains 05 miles long and 20 miles wide was swallowed up, leaving a lake instead. It was tho vapor from this terriflc eruption that covered four-fifths of the globe and caused the remarkable after sunset glows of October and November of the year mentioned, and which wero visible all over the United States. The noise of this eruption was heard at a point in Australia 1,000 miles distant, exceeding all known records, ancient or modern. The primary cause of volcanic outpourings is undoubtedly the pressure of the cooled shall of the earth settling on tho gaseous and molten interior. As the molten and gaseous matter comes forth the shell gradually settles toward a common center, and the cooled crust, having to accommodate itself to a slowly decreasing interior wrinkles are formed, which wo denominate mountains. Preferably, these mountains take the "chain" formation, paralleling coast lines where these are not too short and curving. But when these linos are too abrupt and also in cases of great contiutntal width, they display themselves capriciously. . But whence comes this incandescent interior? This is still the original, primeval heat, which is the incipient condition of all the unnumbered spheres in space, and so far as our earth is concerned this heat is still a portion of what onr globe maintained when, as a glowing mass, it was hurled from tho sun. But all tho volcanic eruptions of both modern and what we call anciunt times bear no comparison in awful intensity to the Titantic outbursts in what we denominate pre- glaciftl time. Washington, Oregon, California and other sections of our western country literally rocked in violent undulations, while tho typographical contour of the country changed as Niagaras of molten matter deluged the mountains and flooded the valleys.—Chicago Times. WEIGHING AND MEASURING AIR. Proof of Air t'nrrentu by Means of a Bota- Unc Globe. In his recent lectures at tho Royal Institution, I'rof. Dewar showed how it is possible to weigh and measure air or gas under high pressure. Air was compressed into a small iron vessel until it became thirty times denser than ordinary air, and the vessel was weighed on a steelyard. A further compression to sixty times tho ordinary density was made, and the weight was found to have correspondingly increased. Then the compressed air was turned off into a gasholder for measurement, and wss seen to be three and a half cubic feet. Next Prof. Dewar turned to the subject of the circulation of air. By means of a diagram he showed how air is always moving from the equator to tho poles and then returns, Midway between the poles and the equator, of course, were the calms, Tho fact that air rises from the equator in consequence of heat ho demonstrated by .moans of a very thin paper balloon, the air in which was heated, and so caused to expand and rise. When currents met and crossed they had tornadoes and waterspouts, the same thing happening in air as they might observe in pools when whirls and eddies occurred. Some of the effects of a whirl of air were illustrated by the familiar experiments of spinning coins, and sawdust on glass. Thus the audience could see, he said, what happened in the case of ships caught in a tornado. They might also note the effect of th« use of a fan on the movement of air, causing a pressure on one side and diminution on the other. Tho temperature of that theater was kept equal by fresh air being fanned Into it from below, the outlet being through th« roof. Before leaving the subject he (rave a demonstration of the eflact a rapidly rotating »lob« would have upon tn« • •'-•-•'-"-nUlr. tl» »lr b«W «• from the equator ana sucfced under the poles. No wonder, he said, that when the wind traveled at fifty or sixty miles an hour ships wore helpless. Tho experiment of keeping a ball poised on nothing but a current of air was also shown, and then two interesting experiments were made with sand, (sand was placed before a current of rapidly moving air and carried with such rapidity (but not more rapidly than the current itself moved) that in ten seconds holes were cut through a sheet of glass. In the same way a beautiful lace -pattern was cut upon another piecu of glass by the air and sand alone, tho pattern being secured by placing a substance over the glass, leaving exposed only the parts to be cut. Prof. Dewar then went on to the chemistry of air, which, as he explained, was connected with what took place in combustion. Producing a candle, be remarked that it would noed air'to burn, as a man would need uir to live. Put under a glass, the candle soon burned out, but it left some liquid on the Ride of a glass, just as a man would on breathing into it. Lime water, on being introduced into the glass, became turbid and lay round the glass under the deposit or liquid left by the candle. This showed that new air had been produced. Therefore, 'chcv were eont'ronted by tliO fact that in combustion new air was produced, 'and the question was: What? They might burn, a candle away, and yet its products by burning would be heavier than the candle itself originally. This was proved to be the case also with magnesium wire when burned. The solid which remained was not metallic in character; old chemists called it calyx of the material. Now the increase of weight following combustion could only come from some material in the air used up in tlie process of combustion, and that must be oxygen. Oxygen intensified combustion, and was completely taken up by the burn- in" body. Air, however, was not completely taken up, but only to the extent of about a fifth of its volume. The burning of carbon, phosphorous and metal in oxygen all went to show that air was a mixture containing only a fifth of its substance as oxygen, which alone had the property of maintaining combustion.—London News. I)allantcii \vlth Silver Or*. Everyone has heard that mahogany railroad ties are used very largely in Mexico, but not many people are aware that on one of the lines the ties are of ebonv, and that a low grade of silver ore is absolutely used for ballast. Of course the explanation is that the ore did not pay to work, but this does not remove the impression of lavish extravagance which the first glance of this luxurious roadbed creates. More remarkable still, perhaps, is the beauty of some of the marble used in the bridge construction. A PLUCKY ADMIRAL. One Shot that Will be Handed Down In Hlitory. Boys and girls who are studying history are apt to think of the events which they are learning about as something very far apart from them, and having no special connection with living men and women as they see them to-day. But it is a mistake to look at the world's happenings always in that light Down in llio de Janeiro, in Brazil, last January, there was a shot fired, the atoi",- of which will become historic- It was Ih-ed by an American admiral, and it was the first shot from one of our country's cannon for along time, because we have been at peace with all nations for many years. It was a warning shot in defense of American rights, and this is how it was fired. Some of the Brazilians were discontented with tlie republic in their country and wanted to restore the empire. A portion of the army and navy joined tho insurgents, and American ships plying between American ports and Rio wero being interfered with by the rebel vessels, and searched to be sure that they were not carrying arms and ammunition to the Brazilian government. Admiral Benham, the commander of our war ships in the harbor of Rio, resisted this, because the rebels had not been recognized by our government at Washington, aud no rights of war had been granted to them. So he said they should not blockade the port against American vessels if he knew it, and be swung a gun around in position and fired a shot across the bows of a rebel ^Tho rebels yielded at once. They could not afford to quarrel with us, and they let our merchant vessels go to the wharves and load unmolested. The insurrection itself may not have much importance given to it in history, but in the school books of thn years to come will be told the story of the plucky admiral who went,down to Brazil to protect American interests, and did protect thorn.—Golden Days.
