OF GENERAL INTEREST. i •— ' — • —• • . . —A burglar who stole two coats, an -omtrella and other articles from a St Xxiuis residence the other night., ute a hearty luncheon- \>efore his departure and left the following note: ''Thankful for what I got, but wish you had more to give." —The orange was originally imported to this country years ago by the mission lathers, who brought the seeds from Spain. They were planted about the •Id mission, the fruit being- used for domestic purposes, and the crop being simply suitable or large enough for these purposes. —M. L. Levi, near Newtonville, Ind., had an apple tree which bore three crops in one season. This led to newspaper comment, and a paragraph fell under the eye of Mrs. Lou Clifford, of Me- Cordsville, his sister, whom he had not seen nor heard of for thirty years, and they were reunited. —Many a recent visitor has brought "back from Europe a collection of quaint teaspoons, each recalling some city, by engraved name, historical emblem or »otto. It is not surprising that the first American city to manufacture such a souvenir is Salem, Mass., and its emblematic figure is naturally a witch upon a broom. —A new flash-light fire alarm has recently appeared in Copenhagen. It con, sists of a small cartridge filled with Ben- (ral light composition, and provided •with a fuse which carries a small capsule of strong sulphuric acid. When tho temperature of the room risi* above the melting point of paraffins, the sulphuric acid is liberated and ignites the fuse, which, in turn, sets fire to the Bengal light. The device can be supplemented by a piece of fusible metal, •which in melting will establish an electric current and ring a bell. —An extraordinary case of monomania has been developed at Vienna. A baker's assistant there has stolen no less than 646 pocket handkerchiefs, not for their value, but because an s. irresistible longing to possess them had prompted him to' do so. He was first punished in 1S73, when he was condemned to a fcrtnight's imprisonment for stealing twenty-seven handkerchiefs. He was sentenced to the •ame penalty three years later for a similar offense, but the police, instead of handing him over to the jailer, sent Mm to the hospital to have his mental condition examined. The doctors de. dared .him to be suffering from acute Monomania. —A curious story of "spontaneous hypnotism," as it is termed, comes from Hancock, Minn. The husband of Mrs. Edward Day left the house one day last October to go to the barn, and on his Tetura his wife shrieked and bade him leave the room. He expostulated, but •he denied ever having seen him, insisting that her name was Margaret Hill and that she lived in Philadelphia. All efforts of friends and physicians to convince her to the contrary were unavailing. Being asked her.age she answered: "Fifty-six," though she is but twenty-four. She was sane on all other subjects. Three weeks later she was again in her normal mind. A week afterward she once more fancied her- .-seli Margaret Hill, spinster, of Philadelphia. —At precisely twelve o'clock every day, the Naval Observatory at Washington telegraphs the time all over the country. The instruments of the Western Union are in the room where the computations are made, and just three and a half minutes before noon, operating ceases in telegraph offices all over the country, at great loss and inconvenience sometimes. The wires are Uien put in unbroken connection with Washington. A note of warning is sent a few seconds in advance, and at tho second when the observer notes the passage of the snn over the 75th meridian, the electric current flashes the news all over the, country, and thousands of clocks—seven thousand in New York City alone, it is said—are doily jegnlated by this record of solar time. —Love laughs at irate fathers. A de- Toted couple eloped from Plainville,. Ind., in a hack. The couple were young, hut the hack was old, and broke down after a few miles had been passed. This accident enabled the girl's angry father, •who had pursued them on horseback, to overtake them. He drew a horse- pistol, and aiming it at the young man, •threatened to bore a hole in him unless he relinquished all claim to his daugh- 'ter. Mary shielded the form of her-be- loyed James, and clung to him with iraotic devotion. She whispered in his ear at the same time. Then this undn- tifnl daughter hurriedly pulled off her hoots, and started on a run. James followed and in a few moments both were scudding across a railroad bridge, over •which a horse could not pass. A clergyman was found, and they were happily married. —A friend of James Johnson, Quebec street, Kingston, Ont, brought him a .swarm of California beer bees. Hived in self-sealers and given a mixture of *yrnp, sugar and water, the colony manufactures ab^ut three quarts per day of beer, equal, it is said, to malt, and enough drunk will put a head on a fellow as big as any one could desire. James Johnson, Jr., Factory street, ^Odessa, came here and took a swarm homo They are in an eight-ounce bot- v- -tie, and resemble a "baby's own" f. jrponge. When placed in the sun or a warm place they shoot rapidly from IT -their bed to the top of the fluid, then t return languidly to the bottom again. ( "When hundreds of them shoot at once '^ -they make things sizzle. A bout twenty< -four hours completes the make and the " ~ leverage is then fit for use. PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. —Mrs. B. D. Gillespie, of Philadelphia, a great-granddaughter of. Ben Franklin, recently celebrated her seventieth birthday. •—Mrs. William Morris, wife of the London artist, poet a.nd socialist, is said to be the most -beautiful woman in the world. She goes out but little and is rarely seen by the multitude who visit her husband. —It is not so long ago that duels between women were common in France, the home of the duelist. The most celebrated duel of modern times was that of the Marquise de Neslc and •the Countess de Polignac. The ca,use of the quarrel was a violent penchant of both women for the same admirer. —Speaking of namesakes, Chauncey M. Dcpew says he gets an average of two photographs a day.of babies said to have been nam*d after him, and he adds: "My son is named after me, also, and 1 tell him that by the time he is grown up, if this average continues, the Chauncey Depews will fill .all the offices and jails in the country." —Schiller, Goethe and Lessing are about-to be introduced into Constantinople. The Crown Pri»ce of Meiningen, who has already earned some repute by his translations of German classics into modern Greek, will undertake the temporary management of the Greek theater in the Turkish capital for the performance of Schiller's "Robbers," Lessing's "Emilia Galeotti" and other German dramas in modern Greek. —An interesting historical relic has just changed owners in Scotland. When James V. visited Loudoun Castle, 400 years ago, a handsome black oak chair was specially constructed for him. The "King's chair" was then removed to Sorn Castle, and afterward to Catrine, where, by some mistake, it was put up for public sale and bought by a Mrs. George Mair for a trifling sum. This lady at ^ her death, which occurred recently, bequeathed it to her son. —An anecdote of l»eigh Hunt, once related by "Orion" Home, lately appeared in print for the first time. Home, on a bitter cold day in winter, went to see Hunt, and found him in a large room, with a wide, old-fashioned fireplace. He had dragged his piano on to the hearth, close to a large fire, leaving only room for himself and his chair, and was playing with the greatest enjoyment "My dear fellow," cried Home, "are you aware, that you are ruining yonr piano forever and ever in that heat?" "I know—I know," murmured Hunt, "but it is delicious!" —Adam Sedgwick, the geologist, his recently published biography relates, was once breaking specimens in a road in Wales, when a lady asked him the direction of a certain place and how to reach it She handed him a shilling, and, before he could explain, was off; but the next evening she turned up as a visitor to the house at which he was staying. She did not recognize the geologist, but he knew her at once. She was greatly pleased with her •visit —her first—to Wales and with the people. "They are so obliging and so communicative," she said. "Only yesterday I had a long conversation with an old man who was breaking stone on the road. He told me all I wanted to know, and was so civil that I gave him a shilling." Sedgwick says: "I could not resist the pleasure of saying: 'Yes, ma'am, you did, and here it is." CLEARED He Wivs Knoui HIS CONSCIENCE. Out tho Old ffh Aheud to < ."Vtiire Shod. A man who looked like u farmer entered a Michigan''avenue grocery a day or two ago and said to the proprietor: "Do you remember that 1 came here about four weeks ago?" ''I can't say that 1 do." "Don't you remember of changing a ten-dollar bill for a man who asked if yon didn't want :i barrel of pickles?" "No." "Why.-you must. There was a woman in here at the time who said yon cheated her on some butter. She said the weight was short That v/as what led me to count my change over after leaving the store, and I found " "I. never saw you before, sir!" interrupted the KTOcc.r. "Yes, you did!" "Don't attempt :my tricks on me, for they won't work! If I gave 3 r ou change it was all right!" "No, it wasn't I found it two dollars " "Go on! You an; a swindler!" "Very well; good day. You gave ma two dollars too much, but if you can stand it I can. It'll pay for getting the mare shod all around, and I won't have any thing oh my conscience."—Detroit Free Press. •A LITTLE NONSENSE." DUTIES OF A DRUMMER. Ills 1.1 fu Is Not One of Unalloyed ITappi- neHH. "You drummers must have a nice time traveling over the country as you do," said a man the other day to a drummer. "Yes, of course we do. It is just jolly to go to an average hotel in the ccmntry towns, sleep on hard beds and eat tougher victuals than you will find in a miners' or railway construction camp. Why, I was up in Idaho the other week and was laid out at nearly all the sidetracks because of late trains, •wrecks, etc. One night I sat up till 4, first waiting for the train, then waiting to get off, and not even a chair in a warm room where I could keep from getting frozen. After daylight I got breakfast, and, being detained till dinner, a friend asked if I was going in to eat. Looking at him, I replied: 'Well, I don't think I have strength enough. It takes a good deal of courage to attack such meals as we get here.' Yes, we drummers have a jolly time in our business, and it' don't take much labor to pack and unpack one dozen or so sample trunks at every .town. You ought to join our array of drummers if you want to enjoy life."—Arkansaw Traveler. A Thrifty Government. England has a very thrifty Government. When a soldier dies in service, SI for funeral expenses is deducted from •whatever money may be due him; or, in case he has nothing, the officer commanding his company must pay the expenses. When a sailor dies at sea, he is charged with the cost of the canvas and the shot with which he is buried. A country that spends million sin supporting royalty, and in pensioning royalty's faraway connections, must exercise economy somewhere. — Industrial World. Be Sure It. you/have made up your mind to buy Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be Induced to take any other. Hood's Sarsaparilla is a peculiar medicine, possessing, by virtue ot its peculiar combination, proportion, and preparation, curative power superior to any other article. A Boston lady who knew what she wanted, and whose example is worthy imitation, tells uer experience below: 12 Cet "In one store where I went to buy Hood's Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to induce me buy their own Instead of Hood's; hetcldmetheir's would last longer; that I might take it on ten days' trial; that i I did not like it I need not pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail on me to change. I told him I knew what Hbod's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was latisfled with it, and did not want any other. Hood's 'When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla I was feeling real miserable, suffering a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak that at times I could hardly stand. I looked, and had lor some time, like a person in consumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla. did me so much good that I wonder at myself sometimes, and my friends frequently speak o£ it." MBS. ELLA A.

"You must always have another boy with you" when you throw, stones at a carter." "Why?" "Because when the carter gets down to run after you, then the other boy can throw stones at the horse and start him up, and the carter will be obliged to leave you alone and go to take c.are of his horse. Always have another boy with you when you throw stones at a carter."—Boston Transcript . i The Parent of Ini>oniniu. The parent of insomnia or wakefulness is in nine cases out O F ten a dyspeptic stomach. Good digestion gives sound sleep, indigestion interferes with it. The brain and stomach sympathizes. One of the prominent symptoms of a weak state of the gastric organs is a disturbance of the great n«rve entrepot, the brain. Invigorate the stomach, and you restore equilibrium to the great centre. A most reliable medicine for the purpose is Hosteller's Stomach Bitters, which is far preferable to mineral sedatives and powerful narcotics which, though they may for a time exert a soporific influence upon the brain, soon cease to act, and invariably injure the tone of the stomach. The Bitters, on the contrary, restore activity to the operations of that allimportant organ, and their beneficent inflence is reflected in sound sleep and a tranquil state of the nervous system. A wholesome impetus is likewise given to the action of the liver and bowels by by its use. DE. J. MILLER & SONS—Gents: I can speak in the highest praise of your Vegetable'Expectorant.

Frank Baker, Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County, says: ••In some respects it is a vast improvement over the English Britannica, The English edition contains no biographies of eminent Americans or Englishmen now living, and the biographies of those who are dead are less complete. These deficiencies are remedied in the Americanized edition, making it aa invaluable compead of facts absolutely essential to historical information. I consider it a most valuable book in any way you look at'it. For the man who wants'a book of reference for use I consider it invaluable. It is also a. marvel of cheapness and an indispensable auxilary to every library." Lyman J. Gage, President World's Columbian Exposition' And vice president of the First National Bank, say: '-The movement inaugurated tq supply the people with tbe Americanized Encyclopedia Britannica is a marked, indication of an advance in the intellectual taste of the community. Underlie easy conditions of purchase of the work it ought to be in. every library, however humble." From thef Chicago Herald: •'The Americanized Encyclopaedia Britannica is a magniScent and valuable possession for every household. It presents for the first time a complete reference library at a price and on terms within reach.of every family." From Colonel Geo. Davis, Director General of the World's Fair:| ••The work is a most praiseworthy undertaking. Any legitimate method' by which the people are presented an opportunity for the purchase at a reasonable cost of works of standard literature or works of importance as tbe means of acquiring a practical and substantial education deserves the fullest possible recognition. Tbe Americanized EncyclopaediaJBritannica appears to have met the requirements in all respects. I commend the work with- pleasure." E. St. John, General Manager of the Rock Island Rail- Road System, Expresses his conclusions in the following direct and emphatic languager "The remarkable enterprise in offering to the public on terms so inviting 11 work of such merit as the Americanized Encyclopeedia Britannica can but result in benefit to every person securing it. The Encyclopedia needs no commendation. Every page speaks for itself and attests its value. 1 ' From the St. Louis Republic: "The Americanized Encyclopaedia Britannica is not the Encyclopaedia Britannica in its old form, but the Encyclopaedia Britannica Americanized and, so Americanizpd to make it a thousand-fold more valuable to- American Readers than the English edition. 1 ' Colonel Sexton, Postmaster of Chicago, says: "I think it is a valuable addition to the publications of the year. One, feature of the book must suggest itself to all readers—that is, the compreheo - sive manner in which the topics are presented. Instead of being obliged to- read through a column of matter to get at the gist of the subject the latter is presented in detail in the most condensed, coaci le and presentable from the start. You cannot get up such a work as this too briefly. A child wants detail, an experienced man wants brevity. You have it here without circumlocution or prolixity. Consider me an advocate for its extended circulation.' 1 '" On payment of $10.00 down and. signing contract to pay $2.l>0 per month for eight months, we will deliver the complete work in ten volumes, cloth binding, and agree to send DAILY JOURNAL to you for one year FREE.
