THE Bancroft Register views the census returns with satisfaction nnd {joints out a fact of interest: "More land haft been sold this year to actual settlers than in the last three years, and nearly every man Who comes hither seeking a home among 1 prosperous people and a land of good crops, is sure to buy. A word Of encouragement from each to friends in other states may have the effect of bringing them here, and if you want others £o prosper with you, say the %ord that Will Bring them." • The Register is quite correct. ifoW is the time to be tit work. Let everybody dwell on the blessings We enjoy awhile. We have had enough of the other side to last a long time. IOWA congressional politics is gradually taking shape, nnd the democrats undoubtedly Intend to make their fight 'or congressmen, interest will center in various districts. In the First, John J. Seerley is named to contest with Gov. Gear. So was the defeated candidate of two years ago, brother of the prlncl- jal of tho state normal school, nnd a Surlington lawyer, in the Second the republicans have nominated a German 'nrmer, Bruce Sonman, to contest with Judge Hayes. In tho Third, Col. Hen- lerson is the republican candidate. Judge Couch of Waterloo is named ns ils competitor, and a very close contest s predicted. No nominations have been made In the Fourth. In tho Fifth Fudge Strublo is the republican candl- late. In tho Sixth State Senator Engle s a union labor candidate, Fred. White .ho democratic, while Major Lacoy will >e returned by republican votes. In he Seventh, Capt. Hull and Gen. J. B. Weaver will compote, while Senator Barnett is in tho field on a labor ticket. n. tho eighth, Major Anderson is the combination candidate, the republicans still to hoar from. In tho Ninth, udgo Reed Is re-nominated, the democrats to hear from. In tho Tenth It is itill Dolllver against tho vacant field. n tho Eleventh, tho farmers' alliance mvo nominated a farmer, A. Wostfall, o run against Goo. D. Perkins, tho ro- >ublican candidate, nnd tho prohibltlon- sts, V. G. Farnham. WHATEVER may bo said on tho gon- iral question " Is Marriage a Failure?" t seems to bo well settled that t bus a demoralizing effect on he prospects of lady teachers. As our institute is still in ses- ion, wd certainly think that the situation is worthy of serious considorn- ion and debate. Is the school nm'in's career to be cut short by marriage? During the past week the cities have Missed on the question nnd they agree that it is. In Cincinnatti the fight is varm. Tho majority sentiment, however, seems to be expressed by ono di- 'ector who says: " There are 300 unmarried girl graduates n this city who can't got positions ns teachers. Isn't that argument enough? I don't lonestly believe in married women teach- ng, anyway, and hove always thought that way. Now tho matter is going to bo settled ono way or tho other. I think tho majority of tho board are with me in this matter. Dhen I'm iu favor of a solid, four-ply rule ,hal will keep man-led women out of tho schools. They've no business there while .hero's sufficient talent without them. It's dead wrong." Another says just as unfeelingly: "The married women must go. They must take a back seat and give the youngsters a show. There's only u. few of them, inyway, and they were tcnchinc when this question first came up, and havo beon hold- Hg onto their places ever since." In Boston married women aro not al- owed to tench us a rule. St. Louis has a rule that marriages of teachers shall 30 equivalent to their resignation. St. Paul has declared against them. Only ono man says a word for them, nnd ho s superintendent of tho Cincinnatti ichools. In his opinion they tonch us veil as the unmarried. This is a serious situation. Wo commend it to tho consideration of the Institute. TIIK 1'OIST Ol' VIKW. In discussing tho inorits of great contests between classes in society, business, or government, "tho point of low" is-the important thing. When Patrick Henry arose to denounce King ~ieoi'gE, the lackeys of Gov. Botetourt ihoutod "treason." When John Quin- jy Adams fought single handed ngainst gag on free petition, tho aristocracy jf the whole country shouted "dls- .urboi 1 ," "incitor of servile insurroc- ,ion." Whon Henry Ward Beochor n-eached the doctrine of human rights n the labor centers of England, ho was looted and all but driven from tho tngo. Anil yet posterity has canonized 3 atrlck Henry, tho most glorious epoch n Adams' long career is his closing ser- ico in congress, England is proud that 3cochor prevailed, Tho men who opposed them aro forgotten, their judgment is ridiculed. They were wrong, ["hoy wore wrong because in estimating the mighty forces in conlllot they lowed from a wrong standpoint. They vere unable to measure destiny be- iuuso by force of education and habit they could not understand tho real orcosand tho real contest, Tho "point of view" is us important now us it over ins boon. In tho contests that aro aris- ng between organized labor and capl- ,ol today it is as important that we earn some lesson from universal history that will enable us to view from a fair itandpoint, as it was 25 or 100 years ago, Tliat lesson Is not hard to find. If there s one thing moro clearly disclosed than mother in the world's umuile, it is that ,n tho end "the people" wo always :ight. Vox populi may not bo vox del ,n every instance nor in immediate judgments, but in tho final outcome it iias nover failed to bo true Unit whon a joncral grievance lias sprung up among ..ho masses, someone besides themselves ins boon nl fault, where a content has nrlson uj^uting popular rights or woll- "aro it has'always been n just ono, when tho conllict between privnlogo nnd vested rights ugulnst equity and niitw- .il justice has been pushed to settlement, tho "survival of tho fittest" lias Invariable doomed the overthrow of ariutocru- ;y, be it of blood, of divino descent, or of wealth. Tho lesson is plain. It may not always be oiisy of application to specific cases. But ilio mail who UO' copts us tho busis of all his judgments the rule laid down by the wisest ututos man of his ago and country, Edmund Burke, will not make many mlusos in estimating forces, bo tho contest be- twoon a railway and its employees, or in any other of thu numerous forms in wlik'Ji "tho people" aro uompolliul to tight for self protection. '' 1 uin not pno oj those," says Mr. Burke, " tyho think Hint thu people tu'o never iu tho l«ivo bo«i eo, frequently , both, In, ptbev cou,tt- tries w a lybjf. ftvt I A« i»y all disputes between them and their efSj the ptesuiKptitifi Is at least tipbn a pa* in favoif of ihe pe'ople. Experience may perhaps justify me in going further. Whe'ft popular discontents have beeii very prevalent it iimy well be affirmed ahd supported that there has been generally something found amiss in the constitution or in the con-* duct of government. The people have no Interest la disorder. When they db wrong it is their ef ror hot their crime. will almost be a feeling of local pride in the Success of Gov. Hoard In last Wednesday's state convention in Wisconsin. Those who met him in Algona will appreciate the enthusiasm that attended his renominatfon, and the enthusiasm With which 'Wisconsin republicans rallied to his support in his Struggle for the public schools. Se was named by acclamation, and finer tribute was never paid than Gen. Bryant rendered as he rose to nominate. As a private soldier," he said, " Ho flinched not in the hour of battle but stood by his gutts 'and his country's flog. As governor he has manfully, bravely, stood by the flax on tho citidal and the school louse under the hill, and today the republicans of Wisconsin como to this convention, and as one man they say : ' Again place the rudder of the ship of state In the hands of the man who is the friend of all tho children, of all the people, and in our name sail on." [Great applause.] Victory comoth not to the lines that waver or the column that haltoth. 'Forward' was the motto riven to Wisconsin by Its fathers. And, 3od helping us, with the watchword, ' Education that shall fit all tho children of the state for true American citizenship. 1 wo will grandly win the battle In November." Cheers.] In response Gov. Hoard said: " Mr. President and gentlemen of the convention: I tender to you and through you o the republicans of Wisconsin, my heart- 'elt thanks for this mark of your confidence md esteem. Life brings no better reward u any department of human effort than tho assurance of duty well done. Two years igo I promised to hold your honor and tho mnor of our beloved commonwealth In 'althful keeping. What you havo done today Is evidence of your belief that I havo at east tried to redeem my promise. For your generous and hearty recognition and ndorsoment I am deeply grateful. Wisconsin stands today with the eyes of tho whole nation upon hor. From Maine to 3alirornla como tho inspiring words, ' Stand >y the little school house.' Forsake not the hope of your children and tho progress and perpetuity of this republic. [Applause.] Tho republican party has always boon a mrty of principle and an exponent of con- 'iction. It fought for tho slaves from 'BO to '01. [Cheers.] It fought for tho life of no union from '01 to '05. It has beon fight' ng for tho preservation of tho fruits of that victory over since. [Cheers.] It stands with Bubltmo courage for progress, equality, md liberty In everything. It now demands Or every child that ho bo given tho prlvl- C7C8 of his birthright. [Great applause.] The child that is, the citizen that is to be, las appealed to tho republican party and all patriotic <^t!zcns, that ho bo granted ;hcso rights. Shall ho appeal in vain! iCheovs, and cries of 'No, no.'] Thank •iod here Is an issue that reaches to tho very coro of our civio life. [Cheers.] Men 'rom every nation, and of every religion, 'orgotting every prejudice of race or belief, touch elbows along down the lino in defense of t'uat education to tho child that shall make secure that which tho immortal Lincoln predicted at Gettysburg, ' A government for tho people, of tho people, and by ,hc people." [Great applause.] WE publish elsewhere the announcement of tho State Normal school. It shows how under adverse circumstances a groat school has grown up, doing a wonderful work for Iowa's public school system. Higher education at this school has beon given at loss expense .o the state than at any of hor other .netitutions, while no other institution ins protended to do tho special work of training teachers. The normal school .s crowded to overflowing, which shows tho appreciation in which it is hold by tho students. Why, in view of the wonderful success of this first experiment in normal work, should not Iowa extend It until the advantages now offered part of tho teachers aro open to all at convenient places, and thereby fill out and complete a magnificent educational system? SENATOR ALLISON said if evidence could be brought to show that American manufacturers wore soiling their foods abroad cheaper than at homo, ho would favor reducing their tariff. Senator Carlisle then introduced the docu- nonts which proved that the North- mmpton Cutlery company were doing so. Senator Stewart then arose nnd said: "It seems to bo assumed that ihero is something wrong whon the manufacturing establishments in this country soil in foreign markets cheaper .ban they do in tho homo market. L'his assumption, It seems to mo, arises rom want of information on tho subject. I think there is nothing vrong in such a proceeding and noth- ng injurious to tho people of the United States or to tho consumers in tho United Stutcs." Wo commend this )Ieasing doctrine to our farmer readers. THE Iowa Capital voices public sentiment in saying: "This Piukorton business ought to end and to end suddenly. Tlio public ouglit to hire such police as aro ro- luivcd. No private body-guard should be toloi'uted. The Plukortoas must go." THE house record of ono day last wook.iinnounceB tho paespgo of a bill increasing tho pension of Tommy Beaumont from $30 to $15 a month. Mr. Dollivor called it up and tho report of the committee was read describing his injury: "Ho was wounded in ilio elbow and wrist In tho •incimndoah VuHoy, Iu 1864.

Iowa IS interested In protection—protection to Iowa interests.. IF you are a kicker and see the shadows of failure In everything that is proposed to help the town, says an exchange "forheaven's sake go to .some secluded canyon and kick your shadow on tho clay banks and thus give the men who are working to build np the town a chance. One long faced, hollow-eyed, Whining, carping chronic kicker can do more to keep business and capital from a town than all the drouths, short crops, chinch bugs, cyclones, tornadoes and blizzards combined. "THE earth Is found you know," says Carl Snyder, "and the fellow who seems to bo leaning away from you may be quite plumb with the earth front his position. In other words tho question of altitude is somewhat relative, and largely depends on the point of view. Tho best way is to see that you aro plumb with yourself. There is quite a task In that and your attempt to regulate tho other follow may turn out mere meddling. It Is a great thing to stand well with yourself. The value of this, it may be doubted, Is not properly understood by tho people or the papers that want to stand with some other people or want other people to stand with them." WE welcome tho Iowa Capital to .our exchange list. Senator Young is making it one of the ablest evening papers In tho state. SPEAKING of Axlol and Sunol, the Breeder's Gazette says: " There Is no use butting against a stone wall of unassailable frets. Axtell Is the greatest stallion, in point of speed, that hcs thus far boon produced, but Sunol has for two years shown herself his superior, What may occur when they moot In a race it would bo foolish to predict or speculate on. The filly Is a nervous thing, while Axtell is us steady under nil circumstances as a clock, and in a race that disposition alone might settle tho contest. If over they moot and Axtell should win without going a better mile than the 2:10K of Sunol it would simply prove that she did not havo hor speed. In order to show himself unquestionably tho best of tho pair he will havo to beat Suuol and :10J£ at tho same time." SOME of our contemporaries aro still talking about tho tho tariff not taxing tho consumer. Will they please answer whether a tariff on tin will increase tho price of tin in tho United States? .Thiit Is ono of tho proposed now tariffs, and a fair tost case of tho effect of tariff duties on prices. INDEPENDENCE in politics has its terrors even for tho groat. Hero comes a congressman from Illinois, named Mason, and puts Blalno with tho democrats. " I favor tho principle of reciprocity," ho says, " but I do not favor tho agitation of tho question at this time. Upon the point of Its effect on Blaluo's popularity I don't think anything can affect that. Mr. Blaino 'isn't in it,' to uso a street phrase. Ho Ibu't in tho republican party at any rate, and can neither injure nor help It. . Ho spends too much of his time with wealthy democrats to suK mo." CHESTON has n blue gross palace, Ottranwa a coal palace, Forest City a flax palace, and greatest of all Sioux City has a corn palace, but whore is tho Algona liay palace! SAYS tho DCS Moincs News: Iowa had 1,02-1,015 people in 1880; iu 1885 this had Increased to 1,754,080, and in 1890, recording to Superintendent Porter's estimate it has 2,145,883. Tho incic,- o from 1880 to 1885 was only 129,805; a little loss than 8 per cent., but from 1885 to 1890 tho increase was tho cnormUB ngivegato of 301,853 or or over S3 per cent, in flvo years. The percentage of increase for tho ten yours IB 32 per cent. And yet some people have been seriously maintaining that Iowa was driving people f.-om its borders by its policies. __^^__^_____ ScmuNEii's Magazine for September contains tho first of throe articles on our Now Navy—tho results of tho voyage which U.

This is a very nice position, being good pay till a man reaches the age of 60, after which he retires drawing a goodly income during the rest of his life.

Borne eight months ago there started from Southampton a parly of adventurers in search of a vast treasure 'supposed to bo hidden in ono of th« desert islands'of tho south Atlantic ocean. Tho destination of this land o! treasure-seekers was tho island of Trinidad—not our fertile Trinidad in the West Indies, but tho largest of tho volcanic group of rooks situated about 800 miles north of tho tropic of Capricorn and some 1,000 miles oaat of Ilio Ja- norlo. When It is stated that tho expedition was directed .by tho veteran yatchts- man E. F. Knight, Iwhoao "Cruise of tho Falcon" made such an impression a few years ago, it may bo imagined that, Deo favcnto, all would go well, and that tho wardorors might return laden with booty and covered with glory. Ono million pounds sterling is a nlco little sum to risk something for, and this was tho amount, roughly speaking, at which tho "wicked pirates' treasure" was valued by those who, under Mr. Knight's command, sot out in tho good ship Alorto. Tho little island, with its satellites, tho Martua Vas rocks, presents a most Inhospitable appearance, and tho difficulty of landing Is very groat on account of tho heavy surf and tho abrupt, jagged nature of tho cliffs. 33ut to return to tho treasure. It was supposed that somo seventy years ago a band* of pirates landed on tho island and concealed their Ill-gotten gains in a cavo, tho entrance to which had slnco boon covered up by a landslide. Mr. Knight's party proposed to di(f away tho landslip, and wont from those shores fully equipped for almost any emergency in this direction. On tho way out tho little yaobt—she was only fifty tons—got caught in tho doldrums and there was a good deal of squabble on board, but eventually, after landing at Itahia, tho island was reached and digging commenced. Alas, for tho uncertainty of all human alTalrsI Four months of incessant toil sufficed to remove tho landslip, but did it make tho tailors millionaires? No; tho find was absolutely nothing but s few pieces of ohina—just enough to show that people had been in that cave; just enough to indicate a probability that those worthies had removed whatever valuables there wore on tho spot provloua to tho occurrence ot tho landslip. All yachtsmen will wish Mr. Knight a safe return to this country and sympathize with hla disappoint- ment.—Gallgnani's Messenger. UNCLE SAM'S ADMIRER. The ICInff of Tarl-Turl a Candidate for National Honare. American vessels of war sailing on tho broad Paciflo will hereafter have a noble King to salute. Whon tho ensign of tho King of Tarl-Tari is thrown to tho breeze In sight of tho American men-of-war tho guns of tho latter must belch forth tho National salute. Tho King of Tari-Tarl rules over somo part of tho Gilbert Islands. There Is a dispute as to just how far his dominions extend. Heretofore tho King of Tari- Tarl has not boon reckoned ono of the powers ot tho earth, but ho has recently como to tho conclusion that lio should occupy that position and claim tho distinction of other groat Kings. lie has therefore notified tho Navy Department of tho adoption of a royal ensign, which will hereafter claim tho rospoot ot American sailors, From tho best authentic report It appears that tho navy of tho King of Tarl- Tarl consists of long dug-out canoes, so constructed that, unlike tho proverbial tub, they will not stand on their own bottom. To overcome this peculiarity, characteristic long arms aro put across each canoe, for and aft, at tho ends ot which aro draggod long planks, which Happing on tho water servo to balance tho canoes like wings on either side. Those canoes aro manned by naked men, who aro the suojaots of tho King ot Tari-Tarl. At tho bureau of equipment and recruiting of tho Navy Department is kept a dosign of tho ensign ot every nation. Tho naval officers aro notified of tiny change in tho design, such as has recently occurred in tho ensign of Brazil, and tho proper salute Is always fired on coming in sight of tho flying colors. That ho may rank with tbo other powers of tho earth tho King of Tarl-Tari has sent such a design to tho department. Ho Is an admirer of America and American institutions, and particularly of tho gay colors ot our flag, and has adopted as the warlike nnslgn ol Tarl-Tari tho same dosign and colors that float at the mastheads of American men-of-war, but has arranged tho colors differently, putting whito whore wo have blue and blue whoro we havo whito. Tho native ruler of tho Marshall Islands, in emulation of tho King of Tarl- Tari, has also adopted an ensign and sot up as a power. Uo has loss good tasto than His Iloyal Highness of Tarl- Turl, and has adopted ft terrible- combination of glaring colors mudo up - of tho designs of tho flags of several nations which bo has soon, and painted or dyed on somo heavy bamboo fabric of native weaving,—Washington Letter. PROPEUED BY TURTLES. A Traveler TclU About tlio Strange* t glpht Ho Ever Saw. Harry Hook wood, a young man who has beon around tbo globe more than onco, was tolling somo acquaintances about his (ravels in the lUcholiou last evening. Homo one asUcd him what was tho strangest sight ho had scon. "That is a bavd question to answer," ho remarked, "but I think a tur'tlo-rldo in the Quit ot Blum was as unique »s any thing, While going over CUlna I stopped at llfttlun, a port ou the Quit of tiluui, aud there onjoyoi a strange experience. The UftWvou rnaUo the immense turtles WWWPO in those ports do $ervioe la drawing boats. They swim rapidly, awl ftro worth only % few dollars ft pair. Th,oy aro tuned. tacked to the small boats with traces. I rode about twenty miles one day, the animals being managed by the owner of the boat After thojr wore hitched up we jumped into tho boat and the men took up the rein* and we were ofl. Tfio animals paddUjpalonB evenly 'and we went faster thjptmo could row. They are guided by ftpwrig stick hot unlike a fish-polo, and can be handled as easily as ponies. It is not often that any trouble is experienced, but last Summer a young 1 man was drowned. Just as he was starting out from Hatlan his stick broke, and instead of coming back then ho went out to sea, thinking that he could guide the turtles by the reins. Ho Would pull up the roths until he upset tho animals, but they would soon regain the use of their flippers and go right ahead for the open sea. At the last resort he cut the traces and let his harness and Steeds go. But he was so far from Shore that he perished before drifting in."—Chicago Tribune. ilott Street Untiles. So you want to sec what a Chinese baby looks'like? Well, just take a run up into Mott street and you can see * dozen of the fat little fellows. They are Chinese, or at least halt Chinese, for their fathers are Celestials, though their mothers for the most part are contented-looking Irish women. I asked one of the latter the other day, who was proudly tending to two healthy- looking children with eyes cut on the bias, If she liked tho idea of having a Chinese husband. "Nono better," she said. "My husband has good, regular habits; he never comes home drunk to me,as too many of tho other kind do; he is always kind and attentive and he supports me in comfort and helps me lay by a little for a rainy day. What more does a woman want, I wonder? I go to my church and bring up my ohll- ,dren In tho Cathollo faith, and he has ibis religion. Wo nover Iquar'rol about it. Ho is a heathen, I know. But I would rather havo a good heathen for a husband than a bad Christian any day.— N. Y. Herald. THE DEAF ^CUSTOMER. She Made Thing* Lively for tho Clerk who Waited on Her. Of all customers who come into a re- tall boot and shoo store, tho deaf customer is, next to an Indian, the most difficult for a salesman to handle. Deaf people are, almost invariably, a little or a good deal too sensitive regarding their infirmity, and when they do not understand they havo a way of protending that they do which sometimes leads to embarrassing results. I happened to bo In a shoo store tho other day whon an old lady entered. She did not carry a trumpet and tho clork could not toll by any visible sign that her hearing was not as acute as his own. "I would liko a pair of shoos," she said, in a low tone of voice. "What kind would you like?" asked tho clerk. Tho old lady did not reply or appear to notice that any one had spoken. "What kind would you liko?" repeated the clerk in a little louder and more distant tone. Still tho old lady make no etjrn. "What - klnd-of - a -shoo - would -you- llko?" . "I bog pardon?" "I say, what stylo of a shoo would you like?" howled tho cleric., "Oh, something easy!" "Button, laco or Congress?" "Hey?" "Button, laco or Congress?" "Yes. Something real oasy. I'm troubled with corns, and I have to wear easy shoes." "I say; would you .like buttoned shoos?" "No, I don't liko buttoned shoos." "What fastening would you like, then?" "How?" "Do you want your shoes to lace up?" "Yes. I liko shoes bettor than I do slippers for out-door wear. Now in the house—" "I say—would you liko tho kind with strings?" "NO. I want tho ones with rubber in tho sides." "Congress?" "Hoy?" "I say, Congress." "1 haven't hoard." Clork pauses to catch his breath, "What size, ploaso?" "How?" "What size do you wear?" "Yes. I want something that'll wear. Tho last pair I had wore out In—" "But, what number?" "I don't romembor exactly." "About number six?" "Hey?" "I say, about six?" "Yes, I am about sick. Caught a hard cold goin' to meotln' last Sunday. There was a draft all though tho sorvico, right on my—" "Is number six your fllzc, do you think?" "How?" "How largo is your foot?" "I used to wear fours, but I have to wear sixes now. You see—" "What width?" "Hoy?" "How'd I ride? Jako brought mo in. He's come in with a grist, I—" "I say. Do you want broad or narrow shoos?" "Hey?" "Broad or narrow?" "If you please." (Pause, while tho heart-broken olerk sympathizes with himself,) "There's a good, easy shoo." "How." "This ono I'm showing you is good and easy." "Yes." "Would you like to try it on?" "What was that you said? I'm a little deaf." "(Groat acottl A little!). Try it on." "How much did you say?" "I didn't say." . "Hey?" "Batsl" | "How?" ••Fit it on?" •'Who did?" "They're two dollars." "Two dollars! Isn't that a good deal." "Not when a follow has to turn himself into a howling Apache Indian to wait upon you." "Hoy?" "Very cheap." • "I wasn't oaloulatin" to buy to-day, anyhow, but Jako has to wait for his grist and I'm jest lookin' around. I may como up again." "Good-day." "How?" "Good-day." "Good-bye." "And tho good old lady put her spectacles away in her hand-bag and wandered slowly out just as a quiet, shy, modest lady came In and asked to BOO some fine, hand-turned Dongola shoes. "What Size?" howled the clerk, The modest little lady almost turned a somersault in her horror, and it took the olerk'ten minutes to explain the circumstances and convince hor that ho was not an escaped lunatic.—0.

This is cut entirely by fko syo, no .design being traced on the glass. The first proo ess is known technically as "rough* Ing" it, and consists In cutting the der algn In tho glass with coarse tools, which leave rough facets, but romova most of the glass to bo cut away. Tho rougblng-wheol is made of Iron, and is about two feet in diameter. It is mounted on a horizontal axis. Thai face ot the wheel is about seven-eighths of an inch broad, and is kept supplied' with a mixture of coarso sand and wa- tor allowed to constantly drip upon It from a hopper above. Tho wheel makes' about a thousand revolutions a minute, tho speed varying with tbo character of the work to bo done. It is slower for the' deeper cuttings. The workman seizes tho carafe with both aands, and presses tho bottom firmly against tho edge of the; rotating wheel, making a cut across the center, and as far each way as It is desired to have the star extend. Then ho turns the oarafe around one-sixth of a revolution, and makes a similar cut through tho center, judging of the distance entirely by his eye. A second turn of one-sixth of a revolution, and a third out along a diameter is made. This gives a six-pointed star. The intervening spaces are then divided by similar cuts, and the spaces thus formed again divided, giving' a, twenty-four- pointed star.— Prof. C, H. Henderson, in Popular Science Monthly.

It waa bought in I860 by an Italian amateur, Count Cozl dl Salabue, after whose death It was purchased in 1831 by a famous collector, Lulgl Tarlslo. Tarlsio hid it away, refusing to let any one aee it, till his death in 1854. A year later it was purchased by "Vuillaumo. Its condition of preservation led to the belief that It bad scarcely been played upon during the whole 150 yoars of Its existence.
