C<-fjK!o!(-m-e;> an- in order for several afe-UugiiHifd American statosmon who recently fi.-ihud all day and caurht—acold. Information (vis been received at the stato department at Washington that tho caaae of bi-metiilfcm is gaining strndily SD Europe. Some Uerrnan railway experts hare bean taking observations for six years, "and report that a steel rail under average wear and tear will last thirty-five years' The Prince of Wales has made » prophecy. It ia that if ho outlives his mother he may rule over Great Britain. but democratic ideas are making such progress that he doubts if his son will •rer be king. Albert Edward always did have more brains than he got credit for. Some of the city clubs are grappling in practical fashion with the growing unil detestable custom of tipping waiters and •ervanta. They pay the servants fair wages, and then make it an offense •gainst the club to offer them anything further. This tipping business is an evil tha* ought to be taken by tho neck and strangled here and now. Slavery and foreign waiters have made it possible in America. Let employers who have any •elf respect forbid the custom on their premises. Let those who do not want to •ee this country like Europe, where one must fee a swarm of beggars every step he takes, be warned, and atop tipping, absolutely and forever. • Old Age and Gardening. Ex-Vice President Hannibal Hamlin U at Baogor, Me. He is 81 years old, and was vice president BO long ago that tho prc^i-iil gfeiit-riilion nood to bo tolil that it wan during Lincoln's first term. The old gentleman is in full vigor of health and mind. He walks fifteen miles a day frequently. The pride and delight of his present existence is a won derfol orchard and garden in which he works with his own hands and "rears • marvelous flowers and fruits. There ia something peculiarly attrac tive in thin serene, bright sunset to one of the busiest lives of the century. The •term and excitement are past, and the old man tenda hia.lilies-and roses and gathers great luscious pears in the sun shine and blue air. It is the ideal close of a long and busy life. Englishmen know it. When one of them approaches old age and has wot a competency he retires to a house am garden in the country. He was cheato cut of life with nature, in the open air during his early years of struggle", aiu HOW he milk CM up for it. He cutuunine reverently with tho sublime mother. In watches tho green 'things grow, ho lis tena to voices that he did not hear in tli heat of the strife, and IB Imppy. We stem •omehow to drift naturally buck to the earth at last. If any life could fit a man for heaven after he has deserved well of mankind, i t* this. The old Greek and Roman philos ophers recognized that and betook them •elves to groves and villas in the coun try. Our American men will recognizt it too, in course of time, and as they ap preach the philosophical age will lean to retire gracefully and give the younge men a chance, -wliile Ihey-themselvesaip that elixir of youth that outdoor life hat for all of nature's children. — Work of the Next Congress. If the Kifty-Hrst congress performs its tasks faithfully, it will be one of the most Important and useful bodies sinr.t reconstruction days. First, there will beun unusual numbei of contested election cases. They wil occupy considerable time and member: will have opportunity to expend tin wind of their eloquence on them, so tha they may afterwards settle down to the hard pan of business. After the electioi cases there will be made a powerful ef fort by those interested to get congress t •ubsidize lines of South American steam era. Much will be heard, and that fo: weeks, about the vital importance of de veloping our trade with South America That no one denies, since our states hav. traded with themselves till they are fully supplied with goods of domestic manu facture, and a foreign outlet must be Bpught. The question to be decided is Should that outlet be obtained by the cooperation of private capitalists or by subsidies from congress? The Behring sea seal fisheries diffl cult? cannot be longer staved off, am congress must take hold' of that and .make aneangernflnta to settle just wha ',waters are embraced in American juris jjseiion. -The Sanioan treaty will requin to be ratified or rejected by tho senate, Then there are those three perennia blossoms on the congressional docket— the pension list, tho tariff and the sur plus. As to tho surplus, there will no be so much of it as there was, no longer enough to be a howling meuoce to the farther continuance of the nation. The iaj£ congress towards its close increase* Jwgely the appropriations for next year m was rendered necessary, and these will probably be made still greater.

CUMBERLAND, MA, Aug. 31.—Forty-five ion were In tho All^gnny mlno, thirteen ijles from Cumberland, bt'longing to the Consolidated Coal company, yesterday nornlng when tho wall between it and the adjoining -worked-o'ut Boston, or ^Ktnn, mine gave way from prcmure of water In he old mine. It flowed steadily in a strong tream over four feet in depth nnd there were grave foars for tho men iusi le.

A Brnvft Mnn to the Renctle. Finally the water liod subsideii to a depth that would allow entrance to tho mine and 3. P. Meem, tho mining engineer of the company, started In alone in search of the mprlsoncd men, nono of tha outsiiloin hi>itij willing to venture. After wading through the water against a strong current up t-) his arm pits and over an irregular (MM! l.rdf.l 'eat, he came to a group of forty-throe in >n ho tofd him of a man nnd a b .y being in « distant room. No one wosiM go to their relief. Well Done, BIcpm ! He stnrted on anew mvl finding; ttv* two, place the boy on his shoulders an 1, bidding the man to follow, turned buck nnd joined the group. The men Fernied terrifiVd and without judgment They decline 1 to g" forward until oftjr much pjrsinsiim, ami tliou only ofter Meem had taken tho lend with the child on hia shoulders. Fortunately all escaped. The water was an "accumulation of years and is still flowing at considerable depth, though with less force. Heavy LOAM to the Compnnv> The loss to the coal company is said to be heavy; the full extent will not be ascjrtained until Uje water has entirely subsided. MeenVs courage in entering the mine and the hope and encouragement he gave tho en tombed miners when he met them may be justly considered their oulratiiui,— He is certainly tho Imncflciary to ninny a lovin; heart in homes that would bo grief-stricken, where widows 1 tears and orphans' cries would prevail in place of joyful and thank ful hearts, had he not ventured.

Each recurring hot season iu a mill district suggests sa naturally ae night "ollows day, tho subject of quality and quantity of the liquid with which man should allay his thirst. The suggestion his year comes stronger than usual, >ecause of the discussion of real or supposed impurities in the river water supplied by pipage systems. In Pittsburgh, there is necessarily an immense quantity of water drank, inasmuch as mill men must drench their innards, whereby to supply the wherewithal for perspiration. The water supplied the city from the city from the two rivers s not nearly so defective in purity as sensationalists have asserted; but,however that may be, it could be improved as a thirst allayer, and at the same time be, in a great measure, made as healthy as the costly mineral springs' waterp. This can be accomplished by the use of salt Enough salt in drinking water iO be perceptible to the taste removes .he insipidity, and is not only wholesome, but tends to keep the stomach and bowels in good order. When these organs are all right, the remainder of ;he man cannot be assailed by the ordinary diseases, inasmuch as good blood and open pores result.' The fact is, that the chief medical virtues of nine in ten of the noted mineral springs tire due to the salt contained therein. Saratoga 1 waters, for which one pays at the'rate of 81-a gallon at - this drug stores have from 375 to 520 grains of salt to the gallon. Other waters vary from 200 to 500 grains. Take this sal out, and these waters would be little, if any more, curative than plain spring water. The best charge of salt for health aud thirst satisfaction is probably about 150 grains to the gallon. This would taste slightly in- the water, but after a few days use the flavor would not be noticed. J3ut there is_this to^re cotmjiend^lBO grains over the minera springs' 200 to 500 grains; the latter must be taken in limited quantity while the forme* may be used without stint, and the drinker be all the better for it.—Ex. It takes longer for man to find out man than any other creature that Is made. •Always to be found at the NEW YORK STORE.
