HOW THE CIRCUS INSTRUCTS. lllltur EafMfttf Got Pointers sea. rm AMiflrta Shew When ob of, the Ma Anverlean ahow first arflVMl at Surepe, anneaitfig now in the cities of England, ta these of Germany, Austria and HuBgary, the phase of tke Americas drew which most astonished military men was not ee ranch the show Haelf as the manner to wblca it was moved. Tv or threw incidents wU3 serve to illustrate the cariosity witti which tba transportation department of the Enrllth and centmeiital armies viewa the organTtatfaa, discipline a ad lag nuity ahown la moving, without halt or hitch, auch a large amount of property and so many persona. While preparing to epea at the Olynv pia, the Madison Square Garden of London, the building department of that city told the owners of the Olympia that a new proscenium arch of steel must be built. This arch was to frame a stage at one side of the edifice and was 280 feet wide by 70 feet high. The material was brought into the bonding, and the arch was pat together, bit by Bit, flat on the ground. When completed, the British workmen Were confronted by the task of lifting the heavy frame into place. Days were spent In futile attempts until at last the show proprietor said that if they would .tarn the job over to him he would raise the thing of steel. He then called to his 300 American workmen and in three hours bad the arch in position and secure, using for the purpose only the circus paraphernalia which he had brought with him from America. A London newspaper printed an editorial urging the government to detail one or two officers from the engineering corps of the army to travel with the circus and thus acquire knowledge that would be of practical use in morlng military material. The gOTernment acted upon this adrice, and throughout the tout several army officers were always present to witness the loading and unloading of the cars, the transportation to and from the grounds and the erection of the tents. The reigning monarch of one of the European ions himself came to the show incognito. He did not come to see the performance, but devoted the night to a personal inspection of circus operations, such as the taking down of tents, their movement to the train and their loading on the cars. He said that he regarded this a one of the most important object lesson. in the movement of heavy material that he tad ever witnessed and that be intended that officers in his army should familiarize themselves with it. Collier's Weekly. SUCCESS IN BANKING. Assured by a Constant Attention to Detail nnd Accuracy. A habit of carefully noting the details of every transaction should be cultivated. Minute observation is essential if costly mistakes are to be prevented. In law a man is presumed to be innocent until hi guilt is legally established, bat it is not so in banking. Inquiry as to papers, persons, notes and coin is always in order. A spirit of investigation is as necessary to the right kind of bonk clerk as it is to the man of science. Slapdash - methods are entirely out of place, and system must become second nature. Neatness and order aro nowhere mere esseatial than in every department of bank work. As exactness is a characteristic of banking transactions, so a stricter compliance with babirs tending to success in other liaes of business is required of bank clerks. Punctuality is especially to be commended. It is the rule of the New York clearing bonse to impose severe penalties! oa banks failing to make prompt settle-! ment of balances, and fines are assessed for tardiness generally. Though a clerk may be bat a small part of a bank's ma ! chlnery. his absence within required hours may possibly disarrange the workings of the whole mechanism. From a disciplinary standpoint, few things are more important in a bank than to be on hand at the appointed time. ! Obedience to orders and rules is to be expected as a matter of course, but this does not imply that even a clerk is nevet. to use his discretion and intelligence.' "Theirs not to reason why" may be prop-: er enough for soldiers, but the bank clerk who reasons why will be on safe ground, Rules are not inflexible. If a rule does not seem to fit a particular case, it will be prudent to consult a superior before acting. Banking cannot be carried on by automa ton s. Success. Applaoae Is Prohibited. The audiences in Russian theaters art trictly forbidden to applaud. The audi ences in the theaters of Japan are not permitted to applaud until they receiv. the cue from the stage, on the prompting of the manager. The first cixhters in the theaters of an dent Rome were much more punctiliom in the matter of applause than modern audiences are. When the Roman theatei goers were fairly well satisfied with piny, they applauded by snapping witl the thumb and middle finger. If tho wanted the actors to understand thai they were really satisfied with the per form a nee. they clapped loudly by beatin the left fingers on the right band. A mo: hearty token of approval was given In striking the flat palms of the bam! against each other. At the two imperial theaters In Yienmi the Opera and the Burg, applause is no allowed until the conclusion of an act and encores are strictly prohibited.- Cleveland I'lain Dealer.

Modern shipbuilding offers problems which seem appalling to the average man when .presented for the first time at the speed trial of a great battleship. The hull of steel, longer than an ordWary city block, weighing hundreds of tons and containing dosens of boilers, scores of engines and an armament of big guns weighing hundreds of tons more, is so proportioned that it floats at jaat tho proper depth and balance. In fact, the water line can be drawn with mathematical accuracy before the ship is launched. It happened once that a royal yacht, intended for tho use of Queen Victoria, was built without due regard to stabHity and turned bottom up as it lay at the dock. That such faulty construction is fortunately the rare exception Is due to the scientific calculations- of the naval architect, a title which includoa designers of commerce carriers as well as men of war. The wooden ship waa simply an ordinary boat built on an extremely large scale, but since the introduction of steel as a material for shipbuilding a new science has grown up, calling for the most exhaustive calculations in regard to weight, carrying capacity, propulsion, speed, friction, stability and, last but not least, cost of construction. The modern warship is built according to detail plans, 1.200 or 1,500 of these plans being requisite for the guidance of the builder in the construction of the hull and engines. The recent revival of American shipbuilding has created a demand for naval architects just at a time when the established nnval architecture schools of England and France have closed their doors to all foreign constructors. Fortunately the need of American schools for the training of American shipbuilders has been anticipated in the establishment of naval architecture courses in connection with various schools and colleges. The first technical werk of this kind was done at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. The institute, from its location at a busy seaport, is enabled to undertake practical demonstrations and experiments of great interest. Several ships have been turned over to Professor Cecil II. Peabody of the institute for progressive speed tests, and under hia i direction the students have prepared ex haustive papers on such subjects as the vibrations of steamships, the stability of a battleship under damaged conditions, a launching experiment, a floating dock plan, the action of wind pressure on sails and the stability of the oil steamer Maverick. Practical questions are constantly taken up which are directly applicable to the advancement of the shipping interests of the country at large and the building of a class of commerce carriers unequaled in the world. INSANITY IS CATCHING. So Likewise Aro Many of Oar Vices and Troablea. All human beings imagine themselves, thanks to our natural blissful condition f egotism, to bev highly important separate individuals. We think that we are born Independent of all other men and women and that each of us can map out his little life in his own way. As a matter of fact, we aVe simply drops in a big jistern, and we take on. in spite of ourselves, the characteristics of the drops next to us Take a drop of pure water and throw it Into the ocean and It becomes salt. Throw the same drop into a cesspool and it be- comes foul Human beings, in spite of themselves and without any exception, absorb the characteristics of those around them. These very commonplace remarks are suggested by the case of Dr. George A. ScliurtlenT. This unfortunate physician was for years superintendent of the Stockton Insane asylum in California. He was looked upon as a man of extraordinary mental power, a great expert in insanity. ... . .. He is now dying of dementia in the asylum which he used to control. There is not the slightest question that mental disease was bred in him by con. stant association with those mentally afflicted. The climax in his misfortune adopted daughter of insanity. When he discovered that ber case was hopeless. his mind gave way. and he will spend the rest of his life as a hopeless lunatic. If a man can be thus afflicted by a repulsive disease which can have no possible attraction for him, think how powerful and how fatal must be the effects of association with vices and afflictions that attract us. ' If a strong minded physician cannot associate with the insane without himself becoming insane, what chance has a young man. or a young woman, or a young child. left to associate with others morally deranged? Every man or woman who is responsible for the care of young people should find a lesson in the affliction of this insanity expert. Every man and woman, bearing in mind tbe fact that the brain absorbs Impressions constantly and is constantly changing its complexion, should resolve to avoid such companionship and surroundings aa they would not willingly imitate. In the old proverbs there is often much scientific wisdom, and this Is true of the saying: "Tell me thy company, and I will tell thee what thou art" New York Journal.
