Many fsnious wrecks have contributed . . , . to this collection, cu8 of the best known i being the Cnnard stecmer Oregon, which, after her disastrous encounter with a coal barge, sank to rest off Fire island. One of these relics is a common cabin clock, the bands being stopped at 1:45 o'clock on the morning ot March 14, 16SG. The Oregon's flag is in tbe same case with the clock. When the Steamer Mary A. Boar dm an was sank on Rome shoals in 1864, she carried down a fire hose nozzle, which 80 years later was brought up and is now labeled aa curio. The old sound steamer Rhode Island contributed a bottle ol sclteis water, which still retains some of tbe original fix; the Confederate ram Merrimao is represented ty a lamp shade, and a British man-of-war, which said to have been sunk in 1774 in 20 fathoms cf water, in later years gave tip a piece of rope which benrs every evidence of fcaviijr ttccme well acquainted with salt wafer.

The Fawnw Slurtmte f Miraelca to Be Ra-prdeced la Brooklyn). The Church of St Francis, in Brooklyn, the cornerstone of which was laid tbe other day, will, when it ia finished, have an interest apart from any other church in the Greater New York. Under its roof will bo an exact reproduction cf the famous shrine of miracles at Lourdes, France. The chapel, or rather grotto, containing; the shrine H ill be 0 feet wide and semicircular in lhape and will be known as Notro Dame de LourdoB. It will be lighted by a cir-cul ir window iu the roof, the rays front which will be concentrated so &9 to fall upon tho head of a figure of the Blessed Virgin. Tho grotto will bo built from a model brought from Franco two yearis ago, when tho Rov. Father Bucilli. pastor of the present Church of St. Francis do Sales, and a party of Brooklynitea niado a pilgrimage to the shrine at Ijuurdes. Lom-dea is more famous than any other wonder working shrine in tho world. Pious persons will not hear it virtues impugned, and there are many persons in Brooklyn who hope and believe that some cf its efiicacy in disease and trouble may be communicated to the facsimile that ia to bo a feature cf tho new church. One of those who believes the Brooklyn Lourdes will do much good is Abraham IL Dailey, the law partner of James D. Bell and former surrogate of Brooklyn. There are few who do not know the -story of the shrine of miracles. A little peasant girl named Bcrnadette was ' lost in the woods. Ia her wabderiuga i she came, to the grotto. She said a vision I of the Blessed Virgin appeared to her. The pious people thereabout who beard the story went to tbe grotto. Before long stories of marvelous cures were told. The fame of the shrine grew year by year, and the number of pilgrims increased. The lame and suffering have visited the shrine by tens cf thousands. Cere after cure that appeared to be miraculous was reported. Sufferers from every country now turn their faces toward tbe grotto, believing if they reach It they will bo niado well.

IT WAS AWKWARD. Why tbe Gentleman Wanted HJa Theater Tickets Changed. A gentleman in immaculate evening dress, accompanied by a handsome young lady, also stylishly gownod, appeared at the box office window of a New York theater and asked for two good seats. lie got them. A few minutes later he again appeared at tho box office window, looking very much agitated and annoyed. "If yon can exchange these seats for another night, I will be very much obliged," said he, "but if yon can't I'll have to loso them. "What is the trouble, sir?" inquired tho ticket Bcller sympathetically. "Well, it's just this," returned the stranger. "I have just been married to the lady with mo, and we found the sast3 yon sold me were right alcngside that occupied by my divorced wife, so the situation was a trifle awkward for all concerned.

MAN IN A STATE OF LIGHT HYPNOSI3. Ifothtngr Ia Those Tays Wu Left to Individual Enterprise This Accounts For Many of tho Strange Religious Maniacs. Facts About Hypnotism. "I protest," says Dr. Mall, a great euthority in hypnotism, "against the terminology which has been to a great extent adopted and which many doctors have helped to propagate, but which is none the less erroneous. It is often said that hypnotized persons are 'asleep,' and the two states have .been partly identified. I think this a misuse of words, since there is a whole series of hypnotic states in which not one symptom of sleep appears, and mistaken conclusions are often drawn from the mistaken terminology, with resulting confusion. . Susceptibility to suggestion is the chief phenomenon of hypnosis." And he goes on to say that, "however strange and paradoxical the phenomena cf hypnosis may appear to us at first 6ight, we may fce Btire that there is no absolute difference between hynotic and nonhypnotio states." - Man carries within him the germ of the possible mob, of the epidemic. As a social being he is naturally suggestible, but when this susceptibility to suggestion becomes nndcr certain conditions abnormally intense we may say that he is thrown into a hypnotic state. We know that a limitation of voluntary movements .-induces light hypnosis, which is characterized by inhibition of the will. The memorv is unaffected, Self consciousness remains intact, and the subject is perfectly aware of all that goes on. A less of voluntary movements is one of its chief phenomena. Keeping this in mind, we can understand to a certain extent mediaeval life. The medissval man was in a stato of light hypnosis. This was induced in him by the great limitation cf his voluntary movements, by the inhibition of his will, by the social pressure which was exerted on him by the great weight of authority to which his life was subjected. The life of the mediaeval man was regulated down to its least detail. The order, the guild, the commune, the church, had minute regulations for all exigercies of life. Nothing was left to individual enterprise. Even love had its rules. There were curious love trials, one cf tho lovers accusing the other of having trespassed some fixed rule of love. Society was divided and subdivided into liurut'ion.-' parts, each having its own fixed rules, each lending its own secluded, narrow, dwarfish life. Bound fast by the Etrings of authority, mediaeval men were reducetl to the state of hypnotic automata. The religious ecstasy that animated tho mediaeval man was especially favor able to his spontaneous self hypnotiza-tiou, for, as Ribot points ont, ecstasy is monoideism, the interne, concentration of attention on one object, an essential condition of hypnosis. The most striking phenomenon in mediaeval history is that of crusades, which agitated European nations for about two centuries and cost them about 7,000,000 men. People were cirawu by an irresistible longing toward the holy sepulcher, which fascinated their mental gaze, just as the butterfly is blindly drawn tow: rd the candle. This attraction of devout Christians by j the holy sepulcher manifested itself in ! pilgrimages, which at first were rare, ! but gradually spread and became a nni- j versal mania. Bishops abandoned their dioceses, princes their dominions, to ; visit the tcmb of Christ. At the time cf its highest tide the flood of pilgrims was suddenly stopped by the Seljukian Turks, who conquered Palestine about 1076. As a maniac, when thwarted in his purpose, teceies raving and violent, so did Europe become when tho floodgates cf the pilgrim torrent were stopped and only drops were let to trickle thrcngh. European humanity fell into a fit of acute mania, which expressed itself in the savage ecstasy cf : the first crusade. "A Study of Mental j Epidemics," in October Century. A FOOTMAN'S BIG INCOME. ! Nearly S3.CCO a Tear Received by an English Cne. Contrary to what might be imagined, j the perquisites1 and "vails" of domestic I servants in royal employ are very email, the late prince consort having f some 40 years ago effected sweeping re-fcims in connection with the royal household, which put a stop to the flagrant abusea which up to that time had cost many thousands of pounds every year to the privy purse of the sovereign. Indeed from a financial point of view there is no doubt that a groom, a coachman, a footman or a gamekeeper would be infinitely better off in the service of a nobleman or some rich commoner than in a monarch's. Certain it is, at any rate, that no servant, either of the queen or of the Prince of V( aleB, has ever enjoyed so large an income as that footman of the Earl of Is or th brook who seine time ago testified under bath in a court cf law that, although his regular wcges amounted to but $3C0 annually, yet ho received from 2,000 to $2,500 a year in the shape of tips from the earl's guests, whom he was called upon to serve during their stay in Str&tton. Chicago Chronicle. FATED TO FIRE. Ordeal Which Is Sure to Come to North-'West Iuwiber Iuitiu. The lumber towns in the northwestern states sooner or later are all destroyed by fire. Ontonagon was Jiterally wiped off the face of tho earth and her 2,000 souls left without food or shelter. A few months ago it was L'Anse, not 70 miles away, which was obliterated. Before that, Phillips, Hinckley, Sandstone and a dozen other Minnesota and Wisconsin lumbering towns were destroyed, with terrible loss of life. Three years ego it was Virginia, Merritt and Mountain Iron, on the Mesaba range Twenty-five years ago Peshtigo, Marinette. Menominee, Pensaukcc, Michi-gnmme and others suffered. Not a year passes but shows one or more villages, or even embryo cities, that have built upon a sawdust foundation burned -to the ground. - The turn of the others is coming. The story of the destruction cf one might be the story of the destruction of all. The details differ, but the main facts are ever the same. Given a town built of lumber, founded on sawdust and girt with mills and lumber piles; the other accessories of the tragedy will always be forthcoming. All that is needed for a conflagration, which often proves a holocaust, is a "bush fire" in some swamp near the place, a favoring wind, and in a few short hours where stood a prosperous town is naught but smoldering ruins, with a few bodies among the coals. They have adequate fire protection as nearly adequate as possible The full j departments of New York or Chicago, with all their steamers and all their ' brave men, could not have saved On- tonagon after the flames caught among the 65,000,000 feet of dry lumber piled j along both banks of the river. The mills ! of the Diamond Match company were famous for their perfection in detail. Tbey were equipped with the latest an- : tomatio sprinkling devices and a full fire department and plenty cf water. Its mills were considered favorable risks among insurance men. Possibly the destruction was delayed half an hour by the heroic work of . the village and mill firemen. That is the utmost that can be. eaicL and: it.iflJaiichjLo say wTon the nature of the figbF fa consid- ere a. . There is probably but one measuro that can protect the lumber towns from forest fires. Were a strip of ground at least half a mile in width cleared thoroughly about the entire place, immunity might be secured. The mere cutting down of 'the trees would not suffice, as it would be necessary , to clear the ground of underbrush and stumps and even of the great branching roots of the pine, filled with resin, which carry the fire underneath the surfnee of the soil. This plan is costly, and tho con- j tinned growth of the towns would ren der its repetition necessary. Minneapolis Journal. , ' TELLURIUM ORE. Valuable Discovery Made by an Old Miner In California. At San Diego, CaL, mining men are excited over the discovery of what is believed to be a large deposit of tellurium ore at Boulder creek, about 60 miles northeast of that city. The discoverer is Mat Wormer, an old and suc cessful miner, and the ore, according to I asBays made, rnr.a tip $28,000 to the j ton. Woimer has been working a claim on Boulder creek for several years, : taking out good free milling ore and sulphurets. '. He had never seen tellurium, hut one day recently a neighbor who had sorted tellurium in Colorado saw some of Wormer's ore on the dump and told him it was tellurium. Woimer sent some of the black and white rock to San Francisco. The answer came j back that Jt was low grade tellurium, runing $28,000 per ton. Wormer exhib ited some specimens of his tellurium the other day and declared that they were identical with the best Cripple Creek ore. San Francisco Examiner. ANOTHER NEW IDEA. "Discovery In Telegraphy of Great Value In Time of War. Colonel Bellonof the French artillery observed not long ago that if a telephone was in sufficient proximity to, although not in actual contact with, a telegraph line, it would be influenced by the current of the latter. Certain sounds were produced in the telephone whenever a message passed along the telegraph line. He has now succeeded by long continued" experiments in perfecting a system showing the phonetic impression produced by each letter of the Morse alphabet, and thus enabling any one with some practice to read by the sounds of the telephone any message circulating in a neighboring line. It will readily be understood that this discovery may be of great importance in wartime, as in this way a telegraph line might be "tapped" without in any way interfering with tbe current circulating in it, and hence without the slightest indication to the stations connected by the line.

Some One Una Discovered That Sleep Is Kettcr Than a Vacation Complete I5odi- - ly Host -as Good as a Change of Scene. What Nicola Tenia Says. . Following the recently revived Kneipp cure comes the sleep cure. . It is suggested that what sonic people want is sleep holidays. They do not need to go to watering places and summer hotels and to be entertained by a round of gayety, with a baud always playing. The apostles of the new method say that many people would be beneiited if they just went to bed and Slept for lengthened periods end fhat they might do well to take holidays in just that way. They affirm that as a rule men and women and children do net get sleep enough and that the old adage, "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy and wealthy and wise," needs changing. There need be no refer ence to early rising in it. For "early to rise," it might be "late to rise." The advice cf that old eaw was concocted, they say, in days when there were no express trains, no telephones, no telegraphs, no ; hurry. Where is the use of telling people to get up early whose brains are racked by anxiety and worry and who are being burned up by the ever increasing rate at which things have to be done? The proper thing to say to them is to get as much sleejj as they possibly can on every possible exscasion. The suggestion of occasional sleep holidays, when worried people of this kind could temporarily shuffle off their mortal coil, is on this understanding quite intelligible. There would bo no difficulty in making arrangements to carry the scheme out. The proprietors of the summer resorts would no doubt be glad to provide accommodation for any number of somnolent guests. The pren-ailing question would not be, "What is therefor dinner?" but, "Is my bed ready?" There would be memoranda as to the length cf time sleep had been indulged in or was desired to continue. "Mr. A. came on Saturday. Ho is to be called on Wednesday night " "Mrs. B. will sleep for one week," etc. No doubt, if the fad were star teel, establishments would vie with each other in the perfection of their sleeping preparations, and we should be told that absolutely unbroken repose for any desired period could be obtained, v Joking apart, however, there may be something in the contention that a greater amount of sleep is required by people nowadays, especially brain workers, than was formerly the case. Nicola Tesla, the electrician, is credited with saying that he believes a man might live 200 years if he would sleep most of the time. That is why negroes often live to advanced old age, because they Bleep eo much, He ako alluded to the i current report that Mr. Gladstone now sleeps 17 hours every day. There is something distinctly pleasant in the idea of an old age of such commanding ; intellect being kept vigorous by the simplest of remedies. But tho worst of these precepts, like those of modern apostles of sleep, i is that their instructions will be taken ; advantage cf. by the lazy and brainless 1 as an excuse for inactivity for which f they should have no manner of war- j rant, either in the development of their j brains or the delicate adjustment cf their nervous system. When the professional tramps read of Gladstone, we shall find stacks of them asleep by tho rcaelside. Toronto.Mail and Empire. A RAILWAY PUZZLE. Tbe Mysterious Ecjueak on the line of tlie Carolina Central. ; Between the 49 and 5 mile posts on ! the Carolina Central railroad there is a ; piece of track for a distance of nearly j six miles that presents a singular condi- I tion that so far amounts to nn inexplica- j ble mystery. All trains going and coming go to grinding and start a terrible : squeaking when tbey get on this six ; miles of track. The noise comes from j not only one car, but every locomotive, every coach and every car of whatever kind sets up a grinding as ' if turning j a curve. The noise is something like ' the screeching cf an ox cart that has no grease on it, and it is made : by every . A mi A i irucK on a iraiu. iiio iiaujt is periecuy straight, and as there is no curve at ail the cause of the grinding and squeaking has mystified the railroad people. Every effort has been made to ascertain the cause of the difficulty. The locomotives ha" e been examined, the coaches and cars have been scrutinized, every cross-tie and every rail has been inspected, every joint has been looked at and every foot of the track has been regauged, but no explanation could be found. The section master has almost crawled over the six miles on his knees in search of the cause, the roadmaBter has tried his best to ferret out the matter, and the superintendent has been over the track and inspected it, all of them making repeated efforts time and again to find out what is the matter, but they have given it up as a bad job. They have not only not been able to discover the cause of the noise, but have been nnable to discover ;any theory to explain the mystery. It is one of the railroad mysteries of the age and has been going on for 20 years.

Boston Tra!d. A MONSTER CAT. .Be tives In a New York Finn Market, and His Name Is Tom. Just plain Tom is the unpretending name of probably the greatest domestic cat in the world. Edward Simmons, the fish and oyster man of Fulton market, -New York, is the proud possessor of Tom. This giant of cats is 80 inches in length from his head to tbe tip of his tail. He is a foot high and weighed last spring 24 pounds. The recent hot weather has caused him to drop a few pounds cf nesh, but has not unpaired his health or happiness. Thomas is black and white, and is rather peculiarly marked. He has two i complete rings of white around his tail, I which makes him leck liko first cousin to a racccon. Mr. Simmons picked up ; the cat two years ago while walking : along the street. Thomas was but a stray kitten then, so that his pedigree has never been ascertained, and it is not yet known whether or not heredity has had anything to do with his enormous i size. Exchange.

T 1 1 oo. I A Family Affair. a si lfP-. 1 f all - If : Those Dear Old Faths. I'm looking back at a picture That's wrought with an old time skill. Tia an old red manse by the river And a ochoolhouse and a well. Dear memory is tho artist, And she paints with a magic wand On childhood's golden canvas. Framed round with a silver band. An old hearthstone is ber palette. And her colors how doeply rare I Thrtre's childish joy and laughter And tears and a mother's prayer. Strange colors these? Ah, stranger, That woalth nor power can bu What memory, turning backward. Gleans up from the years gone by. I see the river glinting Like silver through the trees. And beneath a grand&ire sitting With two children on bis kuooa; Two girls with antumn garlands, November and May, good friends. Then a dash of time o'er the picture And this dream of childhood ends. Thoro's a home in tho sunny Bouth land With wealth and plenty there. There's a cot in tho busy north land Intwincd with true love rare. .But the old mill wheel is silent And hushed 'neath the noise of trade. And tbe feet that pressed those dear old paths Have far and wida estrayed. r And between the years bave gathered Like leaves that at autumn sweep O'er tho grass grown mound where slura-. bers The sirs in bis last long sloep.

I bow before tho noble mind That freely some great wrong forgives, Yet nobler is the ono forgiven Who bears that burden well hud lives. It may be hard to gain and still To keep a lowly, steadfast heart Yet be who Iokcs has to fill A harder and a truer part. Glorious it Is to wear the crown Of a deserved and pure success. Ee who knows bow to fail bu3 won A crown whoso luster is not less. Great may be he who can command And rulo with Just and tender sway, Yet ia diviner wisdom taught . Better by him who can obey. Blessed are they who dio for God And cam the martyr's crown of light, Yet ho who lives for God may be A groater conqueror in bis sight. Adelaide Procter. Positively cured ly these L.ittlo Iills.
