Non-Trniisimroncy of Steam. Why Is It thut water Is transparent and steam Is not, though steam IB only liwitc.l water? E. Steam only becomes non-transparent when it comes In contact with tho air. It isclaimcd that steam within a boiler is gaseous. Tho reason why water is transparent and freo steam i« not is that puro water at rest is of uniform density, and the light rays, though refraetedj pass through it. Free steniii Is vapor of different; degrees 'of density, so that tho rays entering 1 , it are not uniformly refracted, nnd therefore neutralize each other. A good illustration is cross seas making the water smooth. , _. TIio First'Settlement. . Can you nettlo a point of history?

RESOLUTION OP THANKS A1JOPTED For the Pas«nge of the Interstate Commerce Bill. SPRINGFIELD, III., Feb. 3—In the House this morning Mr. Murphy, from the committee on federal relations, reported back the resolution of thanks to Senatcjr Cullom for the passage of the Iiite^-Statc Commerce bill, with recommendation that it be adopted. Mr. Fuller niov< d the previous question nnd shut off debate. On the cajl of the roll on thu previous question the Democrats and Labor men refused to vote. On. the call of the roll on the adoption of tho report of the commit toe Mr. Dixon voted aye, with tin Republicans, and Mr. Messick voted no. Mr. Veile, Mr. Messick'a colleague, did not vote. Mr. Blackburn voted no. This ma le a b:irc quorum voting,and th'report was adopted by a vote of 70 yeas to 2 nays. Mr. Co bran's resolution providing that bills must be reported back from the committees within twenty days of their commitment camo up in the Si'uute and was passe I by a majority vote, but tho President ruled that its passage would require a two-thirds vote and it failed. The object of the resolution was to prevent the smothering of bills in committee. The house bill appropriating $15,000 to the live-stock commission passed. The Senate cleaned up its calendar by referring the several pending iv.-- oluiions to committees. Mr. Hill's res-iltition, concerning th« election of United Stales Senator by tho people, was referred to Senator Garrity's committee.

Another bill of Mr. Seliai'hui.'n appropriates to Morris Ryun $2,118 for loss of cattle under thu eaiuo circumstances. Morris had 178 head of cattle at the Chicago distillery. From Washington. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3— The Randall men are yet undecided when to go into committee of the Whole on tho ••ill to riducc the surplus. They can hot depend upon Republican help, and it look very much ae though ttie Morrison people were preparing to play a very sharp trick on 1 them by going into committee, and as Morrison's bill is the first revenue one on tho calendar, Mr. Randall will hnve to move to lay it asid •. In that case. say the Democrats, whose ideas of revenue r. form are embodied in Morrison's bill, he will have no claim tc further support from them. REDUCING THE SURPLUS. Congressman McAdoo, Mr. Randall's friend, has introduced a bill in the House, appropriating $20,000,000 for coast defenses Judge Kelley will, on Monday, ask the House to suspend the rules and pass the bill repealing the tobacco tax. It provides that the tax on all kinds of tobacco be repealed after April I, which will make a reduction of about $28,000,000, and these two measures may be all that will be done this session toward reducing the surplus Congress. WASHINGTON.

A Wire Tlgl)ten«r. At present trellises 'and felirrs nrc TO largely, made ot wire that ft lionu-nincle contrlvnnce for tightening Hie wire Is often of great service. A useful article for tightening trellis wires is made as follows: Put two'Ecrews about three inches apart Uitpa small piece o£ wood a tew Inches long, iind near one end a single screw, leaving tlie heads projecting about half'an inch. By placing the wire' between the two screws and turning the wood around, the wire is drawn tight; and by engaging the head of the single screw upon it, the tension is maintained. Fig. 1 shows the operation of the contrivance, nnd Fig. 2 the arrangement of the screws or pins. A strong piece of wood two feet long nnd Irou bolts fastened with nuts at the .back furnish a form of this device that may be used to tighten wire fences, Facti Former* Wont to Know.
