FEB. 16. THE present copyright la-.v in this country suits the English authors and those of other European countries very well and .hey can no more talk about literary piracy in the United Slates. Tne reading public hero has suffered, however, and many are not able to pay the high prices now charged /or workd by foreign writers, ll 13 but just, however, that the forc-ign authors should be rewarded for their work and the law undoubtedly indirectly benefits the American authors. It appears however that our writers do not bave the eatne protection in other countries that the United States gives foreign authors. It is now fitting that the governments of the old world shall do more lor the writers of the new. A recent incident related by an exchange, hae brought this necessity forward. Geu oral Lew Wallace while in Canada recently bought on a train a cheap copy of his famous "Ben Hur." The book cannot be bought in the United Slates for lees than $1.50 and yet Canadian newsdealer* are selling it for 25 contB. This fact made General Wallace wrathy and ho became etlll more eo when at Detroit the customs officer declined to collect duty upon or confiscate the edition. General Wallace In commenting upon this piracy and neg~ loot said that "Bon Hur" had been translated into almost all civilized languages and yet he has received only 15 cunts royalty from foreign pub Ushers. Better & Cheaper. ROYAL BAKING POWDER is more economical than J[ other brands because of its greater leavening strength, as shown by both the U. S. and Canadian Government Reports. The other baking powders contain from 20 to 80 per cent, less leavening gas than the ROYAL. So the ROYAL, even should it cost more than the others, would be much the cheaper. In addition to this the superior flavor, sweetness, wholesomeness and delicacy of the food raised by ROYAL BAKING POWDER would make any difference in cost insignificant Highest of all in leavening strength — Latest U.

Already has the competition In eome cities between rival companies bscome so animated that tho yearly rental of tho 'phones has been greatly reduced. A New York exchange comes for^ ward with better news. It states that 'a new device has been invented which does away with central offices, and that the "hollos" girls will havo to find now occupations. If tho now appliance works as wo'l for money as it is working 1 for lest purposes, a man may buy a telephone outright for $5. Then ho owns It for all tlmo. He can stick it up in his office like a clock. The transmitter and receiver aro like those in common use. Beside each transmitter is a little keyboard containing the numbers of all tho telephone owners in the town. In reposo tho switching key points to 0. If 2 desires to talk to 9 ho simply turns tho switch to tho latter number. Then It is ready for business. When 2 gets through with 9'e ear, 2 twirls the switch clear around to 0. The signaling effects only tho bell In the office of the person called, and no one eke on the whole system cither hears or in any way becomes aware that any call has been mude. James G. Smith, who hats charge of the cable department oi the Western Union Telegraph Company, ia the inventor of this now system. In a recent address before the National manufacturer's association GoTernor McKlnley epoko the following eccouraglnff words: '-The recovery will coma, and when It comes we will be steadier and will better know how to avoid exposure hereafter and keep the great interests of the country robust and healthy. We want our own markets and our owa manufactures and agricultural products. We want a reciprocity which will gl»e U9 foreign markets [or our surplus products, and In turn that will open our markets to foreign, ers for those products which they produce and which we CO not. I be. speak for your sessions the highest wisdom. May you be able to devise some plan to improve our industrial situation and otart this great country once more upon its march of triumph or the welfare of oar own people and 'or the good of mankind eyerywhere. 1 ' THK Democrats of Indiana succeed. »d in increasing the debt of the State rom 2.5S per capita in 1880 to $3.89 D 1890. They made the bonded debt f the state higher than that states of much larger population. The invention of the kinetopcope, which is at present attracting 1 n, large amount of popular interest, resembles sonic of Mr. Edison's inventions in being 1 really an improvement on or an adaptation of discoveries of. other men. This in no way implies that the fame of the American inventor is undeserved. On the contrary, it is duo to his genius that mere experiments o/' scientists have been converted into things of real and lusting- benefit to civilization. .Sir Humphrey Cuvy discovered thai carbon could be rendered incandescent in a. current of electricity, and that o.xj-jjcn consumed tho carbon; but it remained for Edison to exclude oxygen and to give Hie electric light to civilization. The main essentials of the phonograph were in use before Edison conceived the idea o£ making- n, practical use of the machine. The Muybridgc photographs were the forerunners of tho kinetoscopu. It has been proclaimed, sa^'s the Boston Advertiser, that the time is now at Land when books and theaters will become rarities, and the average citizen will be content to use the phonograph and the kinutosuope for his pleasure. Such a'prediction is over-sanguine, as yet, for the reason that these inventions are not yet perfect. The beauty of concerted music or of rare sing-ing is still marred by the electric whir and tbo false sounds that issue from the phonograph's diaphragm. The splendid color and dazzling luster of the opera's stage are yet beyond the grasp of the khujtoscope. 1'erhaps those things may come some cluy, but they have not come yet, and in tho meantime the present generation is concerned chiefly with the things of to-iiay. Tho telephone, for histancu, is of more immediate use to civilization than are the phonograph and kincloscopc combined. Science has already found certain uses for Jlr. Edison's later inventions, however, Tho phonograph counterfeits permanently many sounds that arc useful to therapeutics; the normal and unsound heartbeats, "ralus" in the lungs, certain vocal sounds depending upon special conditions of the throat and tonsils. It is of decided benefit to science to have permanent records that can always be of easy access without recourse to a special patient. In the same way the kinctoscops promises to be of great utility to medical science by reproducing physical action that can be studied ia detail or comprehensively as the student desires. In this city some effort in that direction has already been undertaken, and more will be developed from time to time, especially in nervous disorders that bring on certain physical action that is often so violent and vigorous as to baffle any attempt at close study by means of tho unaided eye. Tho Muybridge photographs showed some years ago that the eye was unreliable for the detection of the absolute details of rapid animal motion. Instantaneous photography alone gives a correct representation of the different attitudes taken by men or animals in rapid action, and it is quite possible that medical science may achieve fresh discoveries by the help of the Idneto- • scope. Thus, in studying the muscular action that results from certain nerve -disorders, it may bo possible to trac>2 the nerves which are affected. Even in less complicated cases, like lameness, a ' surgeon may be able to reach conclusions with great quickness and certainty by securing the details of muscular action of the affected limb, as the speed of the kinetoscopc may be regulated at Trill. Altogether, then, while the reproduction of grand opera for the multitude may be a matter of the remote future, the kinetoscope is something of more use to civilization than a mere pictorial toy. . • StNSES OF THE Tfc« BLIND. One TVbo I* Aeuten«M of Slfhtleu. Throughout iny whole life, says a blind person in the Argosy, my blindness has had tliia remarkable feature in it: I always hare before jmy eyes a bril- ffnt, so tnat me seems, as it were, incandescent. 1 appear to bo walking in light. In this light I can call up at will all sorts of beautiful colors, which I sec mingled with the radiance and forming part of it. Thus my blindness has always been for me in n certain way brightness. As I grew older there came to me other abnormal peculiarities, which have been mercifully sent as compensations. I can alwaj's toll when others are looking at me, and -I can generally tell whether.they are looking at me in kindness or tho reverse. My sense of hearing is extremely sensitive, and through it I can read character in the tones of the voices of men and women around me. I can also discern character accurately in the touch of the hand. I have certain instincts for which I have no csact name, which sometimes make me foresee future events. My senses of touch and smell are excessively delicate. HAS A CHART FOR HIS COOK. An Illinois Alan's Oriciiuxl Method of CurIns: flimiiulf of Dyspepsia.. There is a man living in Woodlawn who has .dyspepsia, says the Chicago Tribune. This fact, unfortunately, is not so extraordinary as to entitle it to special mention in a great American city of overwork and underplay, but it is notable in this instance on account of the ingenious method resorted to by the dyspeptic to cure himself. 1'ic carries to its uttermost the medical maxim that dyspepsia is 'due, among other things, to irregularity in the food supply. He has eaten on schedule time and acewliug to fixed., rule for several months, but 1ms not derived the benefit from this system of diet which liu had hoped for, and lias accordingly resolved to take his life, or, as it happens to be, his stomach into his own hands and sec what lie can do with it. He has nearly drowned this useful organ with draughts of hot water, with or without salt, imbibed warm milk until he i'culs almost like an infant in arms again, and yet he is not happy. TLci has even, although ;m un- usu;:l'ly dignified man, chewed gum, but his stomach goes on gencratingas much gas as a \vard meeting. lie believes that if he will throw this stylo of physic to the dogs and onci. more eat what he likes, cooked as he likes to have-it, as his mother used to cook it, his stomach will again go at, blithely about its work as it did when he was a happy, whistling farmer boy and didn't know he had a stomach until he heard of it at the country school one day. lie has a piece of cardboard about two feet in circumference, and on. this card is a series of circles one within the other. In the center of the cardboard is a hole just large enough to admit the" little round kitchen clock which hangs from the wall. Each circle is divided off into sections representing lapses of time. The innermost circle is marked "Eggs," tho next "Biscuits and Muffins," tho third "Bread," the fourth "Roost Beef," the fifth "Chicken," and so on for the different items of the bill of fare. The cook is instructed to put the food on the stove, or inside of it, as the cose may be, only when the minute hand of the clock is opposite to the beginning- of one of the sections in the circle representing tho article to be cooked and to take it out at the precise moment when the hand has traversed the section thus begun. For instance, he wants his eggs cooked just three minutes, not a second more or less. Accordingly the egg zone is divided into sections of three minutes each. The roast beef must stay in just fifteen minutes for every pound it contains; the muffins must be taken out in twenty minutes, and so on. sen snoujtr enter nur stall 1 no wouia get a blow from her head that, would knock him senseless, and then she would trample and kick him to death. The animal has but a small brain, and cannot be reasoned with. The only way to get along with her is to be quiet and not get her excited. I can do about as I please with her. I enter the stall at ull times, feed her, and brush her off every day. She is a clean beast, and gives but little trouble. A new keeper would have a. hard time with her, as she knows me and would not let a stranger do anything for her," says the Cincinnati Times-Star. The observant beast was standing at the other end of the stall, looking out of the window at a man who was walking on the hotel porch, but on hearing 1 Vliltor T*lk*d About Art til* llarned to • Crlip, George P. A. ECealy, tho American portrait painter, was living in Paris, very poor and quite unknown in his profession, lie had, says Youth's Companion, the usual ups and downs of an artist's life. Be. .and Ms wife had inexpensive rooiiis, neither of which •was a kitchen. But, he says, our bis stovo boasted of something- which might pass for an ' ovun, and this Mrs. Healy was determined to utilize. She bought a goose and we rejoiced at the thought of escaping- the day from tho- monotonous meal in an ill-ventilated room, overcrowded with famished mortals. In due time the goose was shut up in tho oven. The bell rang 1 and a gentleman entered, lie was an important persou- nge, very rich, and a possible sitter; one to be well received by a struggling 1 young artist. J forgot all about the goose and showed my work to this amateur, who seemed to be interested in it. lie was a. prolix talker and liked tho sound of his own voice. 1 encouraged this weakness, and presently we were launched in an interminable discussion on art; art, in general, art iu the p;ist, art In America, art everywhere. Our conversation was soon accompanied by a low singing sound which became a sizzle, and then a veritable sputter iug. The goose bad burst iu upon tho artistic talk. A strong odor prevaded tho painting- room, and a glance convinced me of my wife's utter wretchedness. But a well- primed talker is not to be stopped by trifles. Once or twice our visitor looked up, a little startled by the sputtering, and seemed astonished by the strong- odor, but 1 suppose he concluded that the kitchen was inconveniently near, and the discussion went on. When, at last, he took his leave we both rushed to the stove. The singing had conned; the goose was little more than a cinder. EVE A-ND THE APPLE.

Jackdaws In Schoolyardn. Birds are not long in learning where food is to bo found. Gulls follow in the wake of ships and crows in the wake of the plow. A European writer mentions an interesting habit of the jackdaws, which Ifvc in towers and belfries. Many of us in our schooldays must have admired the manner in which the Jlickdaws distinguish the significance of tho different school bolls. In general they do not mind tho bell-ringing. It is nothing to them, and they go on with whatever they happen to be doing. Not so with the bells vhich mark the beginning and the cud of recreation time. AYhcn the bell strikes for recess the jackdaws abandon the playgrounds.,, even before a .single pupil is in sight. Then at the first stroke of the bell that calls the scholars back to the schoolroom down come the jackdaws in all haste. Each wishes to be first, that it may have the first chance at any crumbs that the boys may have scattered. The boys have not all gone in, but no matter. They will have no time now to molest the birds, and so need not be dreaded. —The Atch.ilafcya river, In Louisiana, was so named from two Indian words, incania^- Cons' river. ion, and that he told her so. Whether the argument was needed or not, it is a true one, says an exchange. Nothing in ull our varied ;md fascinating range of "fruits holds quite the quality of an apple. A ripe raw apple at its best is digested in eighty- five minutes, and the malic acid which gives it its distinctive character stimulates the liver, assists digestion and neutralizes much noxious matter which, if not eliminated, produces eruptions of the skin. They do not satisfy like potatoes, complain people to whom, they have been recommended as food, but the starch of the potato, added to the surplus of starch we arc always eating, makes that vegetable an undesirable Bftmd-by. The more fruit we add to our dietary the clearer brains and the clearer skin we are likely to have. Our forefathers must have felt this intuitively, for the chief 'relaxation of New England evenings was apple-eating, ami no one has given us much more picturesque putting of this fact than Bee-Cher. "Which would you rather be," said one ambitious young man to another, "a great orator or a great writer?" "I'd rather be a great orator,' was the answer.
