The experiment wa.s made in Austria, Tin- plant, consists of a central station operated ill eormeetiou with a planing mill, located ne.ir Hie center of the t-.'.tate. From the- central station two power ein.-nits of a total length of about, six miles are operated. One of these furnishes current for a grist > mill, a farm and a dairy. The Other circuit supplies two separate farms. At the grist mill, which is ordinarily run by water power, the motor i.s used only at such time of the year when the water H'uver is unavailable. At the dairy there is a 10 horse-power motor running- a pump and different smaller appliances. At each of the farms is a l.'J horse-power motor mounted on a movable truck- and built over : to protect it against the weather. This motor is moved from one part of the farm or field to another, wherever power is required for running threshing machines, pumps, straw-cutters, 1895.1 FXER the brilliancy and quaintnessof tho Russian capitals, Berlin seems dull and trlste at first; but owing 1 to the kind hospitality shown us our visit was, on the whole,-both pleasant and interesting-. During- our stay we were presented in private audience to the old Empress Augnsta, who received us most (graciously. She talked of Eng-land, saying-what a beautiful country it was, and she seemed wonderfully well posted in British polities. Before we left she guve us each a bouquet of violets from a vase at her S'doasa little souvenir. The presentation took place in the afternoon. The mistress of the robes ushered us into the royal presence. I remember that the empress was dressed , as if for an afternoon drive, and that her bonnet was conspicuously orna- j mcnted with diamonds; but she rarely : went out, it being- merely a custom of hers to receive in this costume. She- looked very fra.il, and remarkably dignified, and struck one as havinsr been in years pone by very food looking-. U'e also had the honor of receiving- invitations to a court ball held in the wissess snale of the castle. Emperor William I, did not live there, but it was used for all great functions. Much to our disappointment he was not present, being- unable to stand much. This was not to be wondered at, considering- that he was nearly ninety years of a;,'u. Empress Augusta received the priests seated in an ante-room, and she sent for us, among- others, and L-ind!\- expressed a hope that we were eujo\-- ing-ourselves. Her majesty retired to | rest as soon as she had finished receiving-, nnd left her mistress of the robes to represent her in her absence, according to the prevailing custom in Berlin.

Our hostess told us I much that was interesting about her j The Drink Arizona Indians Got many philanthropic works in Germany, • from the Giant Cactus, and expressed a hope that we would j _ go to the new English church, in which she took a warm interest, good deal of conversation We had a with the crown prince, and he showed us some fine old French furniture which he had bought at Tours during the Franco- German war. One very beautiful room ha'd been copied from a room at Versailles, which he had much admired when quartered there during the siege of Paris. After luncheon they showed us through all their private rooms, and he was anxious that we should see over the cprincess' studio, which we were naturally anxious to do, but she strongly remonstrated, saying that her pictures were not worth seeing. Nevertheless, we were glad that her hus- . band prevailed, for the paintings were . remarkable, considering how little : time she could have had for such work. . She never rose, she told us, later than | half-past six in the morning, even in • the winter. There was something . quite delightful about the devotion uf husband and wife towards one another, and the great pride he took- in his ! wife's accomplishments. A slight al, lusion was made lo our host being j troubled with his tin-oat and voice, and of his contemplating trying some waters. I Tow little wu thought then that . this was to be the beginning of that | terrible illness borne-.so bravely and patiently! Nor did I suppose that the •.-cry next winter al St. llemo I should see the crown princess so changer] by sorrow anil anxiety, attending faithfully to her sicl; husband. \Ye spent the long day at I'otsdain. | liy special instructions of the crown princess we were shown over the grounds and par!; of the palaces themselves. We saw all Frederick the Great's apartments, beautifully decorated with blue and silver. The present cmpei-or was living there during that winter, anil lhe.su particular rooms were being prepared for the christening of his fourth son. We also saw i'Yederick the Oeat's celebrated dinirig- room, where the table used to be let lhrough the floor to the kitchen below, so that he might be able to converse j freely with those who dined with hii • without being annoyed by the present of servants, the table going down afti TUwIn, Madr by (Jnnuinhered Cnnoratlom, tli« Heaiis of an Annirit Orgy — Apnchn Ritda Cuuseil by It— BLrd> Lirunl;, Too. the of the fii is etc, A Ion;. phiced the elect.ric circuit, consisting of bare copper wires supported on glass insulators. ]ty moans of a flexible cable the motor can be connected up at any part-, of the field whore its service is required.

The employment of electrical power « '- •'arm work has several advantages r the use of portable steam engines. 3 motorcars are considerably lighter nnd are easier to transport from one place to another. There is no hauling of coal and water required, and no time is lost in firing up. It also reduces the danger of setting fire to prain stacks and barns. In this country, where there ave so many small coal mines, rauny of which .are not large enough to be recognized as railroad shipping points, it is suggested that similar plants, not only for Agricultural, but also for smaller industrial purposes, jnight prove practicable nnd profitable for the small manufacturers and farmers of the surrounding district, as well as for the coal miner. toon crown prince ana princess, their children, with the rest of imperial family, entered the ballroom in procession, going round the room, where all the guests stood in a circle, welcoming each in turn, beginning with the diplomatic corps. The crown priuccs:;' likeness to Queen Victoria struck me on this occasion more forcibly than ever. She had that same wonderful grace and dignity of manner and the pleasant smile which always seems to appear at the.right moment. The prince looked very handsome and imposing ir. his white uniform, and his appearance certainly well entitled him'to the name of Frederick the Noble. There were two supper rooms, one in a narrow gallery, which was reserved | princess for the royal family, their immediate court, their ambassadors and their wives, while another large saloon was for the ordinary guests. The supper was of tho stiind-up order, and a re- : COURT BALL. :mn eacn course and being' hoisted again tho I when laid for the ne.xt. Daring our stay in Berlin the Opening of the reichstag took place, and we were fortunate enough kept for us to witness the interesting ceremony. We were much disappointed, however, that neither the emperor nor Prince Bismarck- were present. In their absence the vice president read the emperor's speech, but so indistinctly that we hoard but little o!' it. We made many friends in the German capital, dined out a good deal, and met interesting and distinguished people... Tho day -before we left we went to call on Princess Rismarek, who has so lately passed away, to the inexpressible grief of her husband. The was most cordial and talked Tizwin is the intoxicant produced among the most uncivilized Indian tribes that live awav up in the mountains, more than 200 miles from civilization, on the border land between Arizona and Mexico. It is made, writes a New York Sun correspondent, from the fruit of the giant cactus of the hot deserts known as the sahuara. Tiy.win is in common use or abuse among the southern Arizona Indian tribes. The fluid has been analyzed by the scientific experts sent into the southwest by the Smithsonian institution to study the mo_de of life of the most primitive savages in the union. It has boon demonstrated that the tizwin of the Indians to-day is manufactured in exactly tho same way as it was li.ng before white men came to those shores. Tin; art of producing tizwin h;;s been handod down through univ.ir.'.bi red generations from prehistoric limes.

As soon as the frnit ripens the squaws and children travel miles over mountain and plain to gather it in large baskets which they carry on their heads.

On the arrival of the guests at the first of these all waited in an anteroom until the lord chamberlain came and directed everyone to the concert hall, at the door of which they were received by the empress, the old emperor standing a little way behind her. His majesty was most gracious, talking in French to us, nnd asking us all about our visit, nnd what we thought of Berlin. In spite of his age he seemed then fairly well and in good spirits. After we had all entered there was a short pause, and then the crown prince and princess arrived with Princess Vie- ' toria. Her imperial highness courte- i seyed to her mother-in-law, kissing her band, and then advanced toward the emperor to do the same, but he stepped for.va.rd, quickly seized both her hands and received her by kissing her warmly and affectionately on both cheeks. The . incident was indeed a pretty one to witness. The concert room was arranged with numbers of little tables covered with {lowers, seats being placed round each, and every guest being directed where to sit. Field'Marshal Von Moltke was on the right of .the empress, and most imposing he looked, with -that wonderful smooth immovable face.

The wonderful upright frame and tremendous force depicted in his countenance; the remarkably clear, piercing eyes, which sqnaws, however, easily gather as much as they want from the; smaller plants by means of long, thin poles with wooden hooks lashed at the ends, with which they pull down the fruit. The gathered fruit is deposited day ! after day at a common center, where it I is pressed, and the juice i.s collected | into large earthen ollas. Then some j water is added. The ollas are stored • in a closed dark room, where a slow ' lire is kept up for several da3?s until I the liquid begins to show foam on top, a sign that it is fermenting. It has then attained the desired intoxicating power, and word passes from mouth to mouth and from village to village. As soon as the welcome news arrived all of the men hastened to the tizwin dren, who are never allowed to join in the revelry, manage to get their fun out of the affair by climbing to the low roofs of the wickiups and viewing the drunken revels of their lords and masters.
