^. 1 -v (K p- r ,-T lf "Kemmlerize" has been proposed ao the word to express execution by electricity. On a slighter occasion the unlucky Capt. Boycott, of Ireland, gave his name to a process now very well understood, and a new word to the English language. Indiana has a funny law. It requires that the benevolent institutions of the state shall get their money first of all, and what is left shall go to paying other state expenses. The gallant Governor Hovey wants a modest installment of bis salary, bat cannot get it because it would curtail the luxuries of the poor paupers to pay it. Here is delicate consideration for you. Of course notiodyis justified in committing suicide, especially as it is not at all likely that he betters matters any. But if anybody could be excused for thinking seriously of the matter it ·would be J. L. Cody, of Florida, who put himself out of the world a short time since. At the coroner's inquest it was shown that Cody had for sotae years been staggering along under a combined load of intemperate habits, domestic troubles and fear of prosecution by the courts. ^ Metric Measurement. The French uut of linear measure called the meter is 89.368 American inches in length, and represents one ten- millionth part of the distance from the equator to the north pole. It is the foundation of a decimal system of long measure which is noted for its convenience the world over. This system, Mr. H. W. Richardson tells us in Harper's Monthly, is bound to become the unit of measurement for the whole world, sooner or later. Then all difficulties of commerce in changing the measurements of one nation into those of another will vanish. After enumerating some of the different linear standards in various countries, and the confusion arising therefrom, Mr. Richardson says: Tile logical end of this proceosmust be the adop tlon of a complete decimal scheme, and there ia noneexcept the metric system. For all practical imrposes the meter is the distance between two tinea marked on a bar of platinum deposited in Paris. This distance is the basis of on ingenious and simple system of weights and measures which is gradually coming into use all over the world. Because it promises to become a universal system ftdeservea the attention which it has always received in this country. It is already employed In assaying at the mint and in the work of the coast aurvey. except* for soundings, and is preferred for many scientific investigations requiring exact measurement. Good Times In England. In Great Britain the inspectors of factories, workshops and industries have made their annual report. They show a better condition of things than has been known in the British Isles in some years. The chief inspector sums up conditions in these words: "The working classes were never better off than at present, and with sobriety and thrift they might almost all be comfortable and respectable." The various industries throughout the globe seem, by a law not well under stood, to be connected with each other in such a way that when a given interest is prospering in one country it ia usually also thriving in other countries. Thus iron manufacturing has been prospering in America the last year and a half. In Great Britain it has teen stimulated in all branches of its production during the same period The good times have likewise covered Wales and Scotland. In Glasgow more than half a million dollars in excess of the amount for last year has been deposited in the savings tanks. The articles manufactured find ready sale abroad for once, and only for the vexatious strikes and discontent of ihe working people England would have comparative peace. There is one exception to the general prosperity, however, and that is a very significant one. It ia the farmers. Agriculturists in America have been discouraged and depressed of late years, and even though misery loves company, it will not add to their happiness to know that the outlook of the English farmer has been equally gloomy. Tolstoi. Count Leon Tolstoi has spent most of the time since his "Krentzer Sonata" appeared in explaining why he wrote it. He is a brave man, this Tolstoi, for he does not take back one -word of the revolutionary social views put forth in that work. He did not become scared at the outcry and take water, as a weaker author would have done. He only says he regrets that it was published in his lifetime, and that it was issued against his judgment. A New York World correspondent visited Tolstoi at home not long since, and found him entirely living up to hia blue china, so to speak. He believes that it is the duty of every human being to work with his hands to provide himself with bread. This, however, need not occupy all his time, or more than a few hours of it daily, and the remainder he can utilize for cultivating literature or the fine arts. So he himself works, so he hiTnaolf writes. lake most persons of genius, Tolstoi has work enough laid out ahead of him for two or three lifetimes, work that he can never hope to finish, yet still loves to think about. He says of bis own life: Evi-ry man ought to do enough woik each day to pay for the food he eats and tha clothes he weara. Unless he does that heissponjjmg his llrlng off the labor of other people, and is doing an injustice to his feDow men. Some days I mow, others I sow grain, plow, dig In the .garden, pick beme* or apples, or, like Sir. Gladstone, fell a tree. I live very simply I malre my own boots, and if my women would let me would also make all ny own clothes. I do not have to worlc very long hours to pay for what I consume, and so X find plenty of time to write and studr. I am only 12 fiare old, and intend to write a great deal. My only concern Is that life may prove too sliort to anable me to finish all I wish to da ATTENTION!

ESTKP. Save Money. Towns along the line of the H. A St. J. R. R. have the combined advantages In passenger trains service of each separate terminus of the road. That is, any trains starting or passing over tbe H. A St. J. B. R through either Kansas City, St. Joseph, Hannibal or Qulnoy must pass or stop at their stations; the only disadvantage that the small towns are under is tbe occasional necessity of taking local train to a station at which the thronirb train stops, Tne best known trains of tbe west are at their very doors. The "Eli," tbe famous pioneer of Chicago and Missouri river fast trains, is one. The through St. Louie-Denver train with palace sleepers and free chair cars, tte only train running tbe whole distance over the tracks of a single system, is another. From either Kansas City, St. Josepn, Bannibal or Quiucy the Burl ington Route gives through service to Minneapolis. St. Paul and tbe Northwest. The ticket agents of local stations are not, as they are often resresent* mere retail dealer* of tickets sold wholesale In large cities. They are the assistants of the general ticket office and are the first to receive notice of any special rates, benefits or change which may Interest the traveler. If they have not the requisite tickets in their case, they have, on tbe request of the passenger the whole stock of tickets in tbe general ticket office to draw from. It is a mistake for passengers to think by buylnjr locally to ajlargeolty they can tb«n get a ticket to their destination cheaper than though they they bad bought a through tleket from point of starting. Tnls cannot be the case unless they visit a broker and then in nine oases out ol ten their ticket is liable to be refused for passage on tbe train. Save money and worry by buying through t.ckete at your starting point. A CARD.
