A Pennsylvania Dutch farmer died recently and $35,000 in coin and banknotes were found stowed away in odd places about the house in old tin cans and coffee pots. Capt. !• ri(!sson, the inventor, is 83 years old, but still vigorous enough to work twelve hours a day. He is so devoted to the tasks he has set himself that he receives no visitors at all. A son of W. H. English, of Indianapolis, Democratic candidate for Vice President in 1880, was arrested as he was about to sail for Europe, Sattir.iay,on a charge highly scandalous and criminal, the complainant being an Indianapoliswidow, Mrs. Case. Six boys were killed by a railroad collision near Easton, Pa., Satu day. They were walking along a railroad track in a snowstorm and stepped on to another track to avoid a coal train and were run over by 'an approaching express train that they did not notice. Regularly organized bicycle corps are now attached to the French army, and in recent maneuvers they have done all such woik as. carrying orders and dis, atches, and clone it with more speed and punctuality than mounted troopers. The inventor of the playful abomination, the chestnut bell, has vainly endeavored to get an addenda patented. In the new arrangement when the bell is struck a miniature rat runs across the breast of the wearer and stops in full view of thu victim. To make it more effective the word "rats" is inscribed on tho rat. ibis way too much for the olHcial stomach to bear and it will remain open to infringement. There is some satisfaction in having at last an official statement of the cause of the recent White River Junction railroad accident in Vermont, in wuich so many lives were lost under ci''i unbalances so harrowing. 'Ihe Vermont railroad commissioners, after a careful investigation. find that it, was not a broken journal of a Pullman car that was originally to lilame, but a broken rail, which, on being ,- un OVC r, flew up and struck ihe journal and broke It, thus letting clown the car and leading to thu wreck of the train. Had the defective rail been anywhere clue th in on the approach to the bridge, the acci- duut would have bu. n a luss serious affair. It was the piqoipitatiou • f the cars, one after another, over tho bridge on tho frozen river, sixty fuet below, and tho burning of the wreck from the fire in tho stoves that it so tragic and mournful.

Sebatitinn George, theiunnteur "miiul reiuler," in u letter . tu' the Boston Herald, doBcrlijiiig his remarkable gift, gives th<! following aa liis theory as to now iiiind-rotuUng is aoooinplishtHl: When iny stibjoct SCK>H un object it is not the eye that ne«B, but th« brain, using tho aye on a wmdnotor. The more vividly anything is pictured before the eye the greater thn tremor of the brain, nnd lie jnore certain tho mind of its object Tho tremor established In my etibjoet'e brain tntvels throughout the Bystem, and would evidently go out into the atmosphere, or ether, perhapa to influence things we knpw nothing of, but here the, miud- i-etMler stops in and receives the electric current (for this I believe it is) into his nerves, it travels to his brain, and there again tho object is reproduced. With me it is certainly very dim, but the real object is pictured there, and I see with another's eyed. Then, witl»- out contact, I ; receive the tremor through,' the conducting, :cther, and when my nerves ;aro in their most Susceptible, niood, or on ;a par with: m y subject's, Tiwould bo juBtrnsrsure of success.

When an'object is.hidden, there ie double, worki to do if the mind-render has had! no' previous knowledge of what th« .atticle is to bo. : • Lincoln's Father's Arithmetic. Mr. William G. Greene, an early friend of Mr. Lincoln, relates that in 1836 he was .going to' kentucky, and "at the request of Abe Lincoln: I carried a letter to his -father, who lived in. Coles county, Illinois, at the head of the : 'Ainbraw' river. When I got to .the place the old .man's looked so small and humble that I felt embarrassed until he rrccivc'd me with much heartiness, telling me what a handy .house he had and how conveniently it was arranged. It was a log house, and some of tho logs stuck out two or three fe«t from the wall at the corners. Ho said that he could dress his deer as he killed them, and hang them on the projecting logs, and could tie his horse to them. The old man inquired how-his sou was getting along. He said Abo was a good boy, but ho was afraid he would never amount to much; he hod taken a notion to study law, und those men were generally 'eddicated' to do wrong. 'Hero now,' he said, 'I cannot read or write a bit; but I cuu beat lauy book- kee.'xsr I over -saw at making my accounts so easy and .simple tbat anybody can .understand .them, just bv taking my forefinger-and rubbing out that bluck mark.' In the little cabiu where he was living, tho joists were about seven feet from the Jioor, nnd were of course unfinished, The olil man had taken a firo-coal .and drawn four black marks on the f two of a joist, something like the four bars of music. He then explained that he had been 'tending mill' for a man down the river; and whon ho sold a customer u peck of meal ho simply reached up and drew his .finger.. through tho lower lim;. For two peeks ho nibbed ft hole through two of the .lines, for throe pecks throe linos, and for a bushel four line.8 were erased. .Ho put .a mark to indicate tho customer right over his dues. 'The simplest thing in the world,' said ho, and added: -If Abe don't fool away all his timo ou books he may make • something yot.'"— lirownc's "JSvcry-Day Life of Abraham Lincoln " I am going to consolidate my two establishments, and have to make room for new goods.and offermy entire stock, from now until March 1st, at Prices i ELQW Everything must go to save coat of moving and storing* Table-ware, Cutlery, Stovea, Hardware, Tinware, Granite-ware, Locks, Springs, and eve- lything kept in any hard- ; ware store, A 11 these ' and were bought before the recent advance In ipricefc; To those contemplating building this spring, I offer 1,000 KEGS OF STEEL NAE.8! at factory Prices.
