Wlim it %vn=i rcjinrtnl that a French baron was drownoil at Long Branch this! summer, industrious npu-spriper young men traced up the Hrcxiklyn homo of the alleged nobleman and interviewed his landlady, who merely smiled and paid her lato boarder wasn't much low, ns he never had more than $5 at a limn in hia possession. That was how tho average American boarding house keeper has oome to regard a nobleman. On the whole, tho average boarding house keepto: la a tolerably accurate judge of human nature. Lords and barons are a drug in the market at present. If a stranger comes to an American hotel without tho etifTest of credentials and says he is a British nobleman, the proprietor of that house of en^tainmcut at once begins to look after fiia lordship's bills and baggage in the sharpest kind of a way. Right ho is, too. Americans have been done so often by coachmen and valets from over the water, who posed as noblemen, that they have learned to be suspicious even of the real article when once in awhile it travels this way. It is unfortunate in these instances that there is no infallible way for us Americans to discern tho lord from tho valet. The one may act the blackguard quite as well as tho other. "That's the tnnn who says he's a lord, but it's my opinion ho is about as much of a lord as I am," ia the confidential verdict of the American hotel keeper: tfter looking ono of these self styled noblemen over from head to foot. When they send real blue bloods to us hereafter our British cousins should label unU ticket them in some way so that we may know them certainly. At piesent Albert Edward himself might appear among us and be thought tin; butler of somo rich triidi-smuii. In fact, it is rather 'against a man now to bo suspected hero of being a lord. A Natural Ooa Trust. It la doubtful whether geologists know much about it. but they tell us that the Ohio natural gas wells spout from the peaks of a great subterranean mountain range that runs parallel with the Alle- gheniea. This mountain range was sub— merged at some unknown period in the post. The gas is formed by heat, internal pressure, chemical action, etc., upon organic and inorganic matter in the clefts and caverns of the mountains. The gas field extends northeast and southwest from northwestern Ohio, through part of Indiana-. The history of this natural gas field is full of interest. The Standard Oil company discovered its extent and -value while boring for an entirely different object, the discovery of petroleum wells. The original pressure of a natural gas well ia tremendous, 400 pounds to the square inch. It is claimed that the supply shows practically no sign of diminution. It is said now that ugreat combination of the principal gas operators of this field in question is to bo made, and that they will at once proceed to pipe the product to the principal cities of Ohio and Indiana. Chicago will also be reached. The revolution that will be wrought in this soft coal region can hardly be estimated. The gas fuel will clean up Cincinnati and Chicago till they no longer know themselves. The cost of the original product 1.4 of course uoHiing7 ex-~ cepttho well drilling, and tho expense will be the piping. The impetus given to manufacturing in tho gas field can hardly bo estimated. Findlay, 6., from a population of 5,000, grew in two years to 25,000, with thirty-five factories." where two had been before. Tho reigning families of tho Old World will soon be BO closely kin to ono another that they will constitute one great family. The marriajje of Princess Sophie, sister of Emperor Willie of Germany, to tho crown princo of Gn-ece, will join by blood the families of Russia, Denmark. Great Britain. Germany and Greece, a regular chain, passing from northeastern Europe westward and back again to tin- east. Italy, Austria and Spain are the only principal monarchies not yet in this blood alliance. Difference of religion constitutes the bar to union with these. But elsewhere it will soon be that royalty can not lire- a gun without ahooting in tho direction of a grandmother, a cousin or an uncle. VTlmt I(« Ail^nratm Claim for It—Tli« Scientific Flinlnon Wltlch It n«-»f 1— Physical HH.l Mi-ntHl Peculiarities Arc Rnul M r«*Hy M nrt Open Hook. Chlro-psychninMry is tho technical nrvmr> for palmistry, or tho rending of ono'* individual rharnrtori^tics from nil ox.imiimlion and on Intorpri'tntion of tlio hnmls. Palmistry is older than sculpture, painting nr modi- clno. It is older than history Itwlf, for In the dimmest traditions of tho rcinoU 1 :-* |"ist there nr« distinct allusions to tho hrnvpst warriors and tho pjrandfst kings consulting tho prk'stly rnhnisU'r, ns nn ur.'iclo whoso mystic mos>;r^es uvro of tho most sacred character—and, honce, of .tho greatest im- portmicn. 1'almlstry is nn nrt with a philosophical Uusis, ti scientific justification nnd n practically useful application. It is na philosophic in its principle's as is nny theory of tho union ami relationship of tho human soul and body. It is 03 scientific in its foundation 1 ", methods nnd results as painting, music or niedk'USft, for tho technique in the™ department's i* scientific, whilo tho practical application 13 always nn art. In common with modk'ino.'pniiiiistry has human anatomy for a scientific hasis; nnd in common with painting, col .ra and shades aro all ini])ortant [actors; whilo form is as much nn essential as it is in sculpture. Palmistry, therefore, to be at all successful must, like sculpture, painting, medioino or music, have an artistic application of its philosophical theories and scientific foundations nnd methods. WHAT PALMISTRY IS, Any one of ordinary mental capacity can learn tho science aud understand t ho philosophy of palmistry. In its practical use, however, tho artistic ability of the palrnister is that which gives charm, en tortainmcnt and usefulness. Tho philosophical lnusis of palmistry ia the doctrine that tho soul creates tho body for itself, nnd that tho body is naturally a good, exact, easy and well fitting wit of material clothing for tho spiritual louL Tho body is, therefore, in tho likeness of the soul within it, because the only peculiarities of the body aro thosu imparted to it or impressed upon it by tho Indwelling soul, which has developed the Iwdy for its habitation, convenience and use. Then it is nn old nnd sacred occult maxim that all tho powers of tho man are centered In tho hand—or represented by tho hand. Tho conclusion is, therefore, that tho hand is to him who can translate its divine hieroglyphics, tho likeness nnd tho representative of the soul Tho scientific foundations of palmistry, like all other scientific bases, consist in tho agreed upon results of many careful examinations and tho moro or loss exact verifications of' the theories nbovo stated— wkou put to the test of practical application. Palmistry, then, practically, is tho traustn-, ttfm of rnanmtl peculiarities into mcutol cliaractortKtics^ und so far as tho palmist is accomplished in his art, can read from the hands of his client his (or her) physical peculiarities, temperament. appetiU'-s, passions, impulses, aspirations, mental endow mcnts, character nnd tendencies. Tho palmistcr docs not suppose or teach that tho character ia dependent upon tho peculiarities 'of tho hand, any'more than that tho time of day depends upon tho position of the hands of tho clock, but that just as the bonds of n good clock indicate tho time of day, so does the peculiarity of the hands indicate tho ohnracter of tho individual. A man Is not n mechanic or a musician on nc- oount of nny peculiar shape or size of his hnnds, but being of any definite character mentally a man is provided with hands which aro the best adapted to fully and promptly giyo expression to his special abilities, Tho term palmistry is somewhat misleading, for it gives rise to tho common mistake that the art is confined to an examination of the palm and tho lines therein found, whereas tho fact is that every peculiarity of the entire hand IB considered by tho intelligent hand reader. GTPSY FORTUNE TELLERS. Palmistry, as practiced principally by the gypsies and even less perfectly by a fow unprincipled or misguided prutcuders, ns a means of fortune telling has never been recognized by intelligent artists as other thnn a pasttmo -or a harmless delusion, and at tho present day tho art is used almost entirely in delineation of character, while the fortune telling feature is left to thu ignorant, tho curious and the superstitious. It must not be inferred from this that tho fortune telling palmists, and especially tho gypsies, read tho band at hazard. This would bo very far from tho truth, for Nearly every one who pays any attention to this lino of tho artworks 'in accordance with more or less definite rules, so that any fairly experienced palmist—oven though mistaken—would read substantially the same fortune from the same pair of hands at different times—not from memory of tho bands, but from tho application of whatever rules he might bo in the liabit of usiug. Moro than .this, any mitiiber of _well jnstructed gypsies would read subsuintially~tlw~«dmo" fortune from any pair of hands, within a few days of each other, without uny consultation or collusion with each other. No ono 1ms two hands nliko. The left hand —that is, tho less active hand—shows moro nearly thairtho right hand one's natural or inherited peculiarities, whilo tho right hand, or tho ono moro active, always exhibits more fully tho acquired characteristics. This difference in hands, which is universal, informs the palmist as to which way tho man or woman is growing, and is therefore ono of tho keys by which to unlock luany of tho less easily solved mysteries of the soul. Hands differ indefinitely in size, ranging from tho extremes of largo and small, uud this difference extends to tlio threo dimensions, so that hands may lw any where from long to short, from broad to narrow, nnd from thick to thin, and usually each pair of hands differ ono from tho other in theso three particulars. —Chicago Tunes. ,™ , '' 'i o ri ::. tf. it 11 ;n f**™"«^-%p^ I J IV •4 ^ We take pleasure in announcing a New Serial Story by that Prince of Story Writers, John Habberton, author of "Helen's Babies," Etc.

They did so, but at the height of a few feet, they feit him fall o;it of the bucket. A man named Sherman Snyder was standing by, and at once proposed to go to llobbins' aid, not realizing the cause of the trouble. He perished also as did llobbins, with damps, the pois- odous gas of the well being too strong for them, llobbins' remains were buried at Gettysburg, aud Snjder's wore shipped east.

ELGIN,111., Sept. 7.—[Special.]—The executive council of-theMocfein Woodmen, in session this week, has, it ia understood, acquitted Head Council Root, of the charge of fraud preferred by Head Physician P. L. McKinnic, and requested the latter's resignation. —{Chicago Sunday Tribune. As we understand it from one who was present at Elfe-in, the above telegram is"calculated""torimsle'ad" and is printed in order to call out a statement of the evidence concerning the fraud- ulenl^death claim and give the perpre- trators a chance to discount its effect' The gentleman further says: "P. L. McKinnie did unearth a great fraud, and was insisting it should be investigated. He had collected considerable evidence, some of which demanded an explanation from J . C. Uoot. Instead of explaining Hoot attempted to stille the investigation and tho result was ihe meeting of t,he committee at Klgin. The committee recommended that for the good of the order, Root and McKinnie should tender their resignations and the resolution to that effect was carried. Two of the committee went away and a friend of Hoot's came and with an implied agree meut to reconsider the vote asking the gentlemen to resign, the vote on Hoot was reconsidered and on voting to pass the resolution the vote stood 4 yeas and 4 nays. J. C. Hoot voting nay on his own case. Then a reconsideration was moved on the vote asking McKinnie to resign and the parties who were in "favor"of™ reconaider- ing both cases, suddenly lost interest in the matter—at least they voted nay. The matter now stands in this position: A fraudulent death claim had been paid by order of J. 0. Hoot, file- Kinnio was insisting on a thorough and honest investigation and thu friends of J. C. Hoot manipulate mat ters so that the record would show McKinnie ousted and Root retained— that is, a man is pushed out of ollice because he unearthed a fraud." Fall Ofercnats Reafly for Inspection.
