The New York, Now Haven and Hartford Railroad company at first refused to obey the Now York law forbidding tlie use of stoves in passenger cars upon railroads fifty miles in length on the plea that leas than forty miles of the road was within t'uo state of New York. An accident, in which the car-stove got in its usual effective work by roasting six people to death, led to the indictment and arrest of a round dozon of its directors for disobedience of the law. The directors have givon bail and their cases have not yet been called for trial—perhaps may never bo—but it is now authoritatively announced that fifty of the company's cars will be equipped with steam-heating apparatus within a few days, and the work will bo continued at the company's shops until every passenger car on the road is fitted with steam and hot-water pipes.

ARE WE NEAR ANOTHER GLACIAL EPOCH. Tnouan the past winter has been moderate in America the cold in Europe has been so groat that Professor Bonney, an English geologits, it is reported, has been led to inquire if such a permanent fall of temperature would restore the so- called Jglacial epoch? During the frost f-om Nov. 25 flo Jan. 22 ult. the moan temperature over all thu southeast of England was two degrees bulow the freezing point. Prof. Bonney concludes that a lowering of the moan by only eighteen degrees Fahrenheit, wonld again cover tho British Islands and tho United States with mi ice sheet. , The story of the late Dr. Croll, upon which this conclusion has been mainly reached by geologists, is however, far from impregnable. He assumes that in tho remote past our winters happened when tho earth wns in the aphelion of it* orbit, and hence over eight million miles further from the sun than it now is in winter. From this assumption he reasons that our summers would bo cooler and shorter and winters colder und longer, tho snow would accumulate enormously on •••\the. continents and that the equatorial and contract for the iron work of the Chicago Masonic temple, _ THE Nebraska legislature having adjourned without passing the legislative apportionment bill, an extra session will be necessary.

No wonder geologists who had worked in vain upon numerous theories and long boon groping hopelessly hi tho dark for some explanation of tho ice age, clutched at Dr. Croll's fascinating hypothesis. But it is a rather lame expedient. Under tho conditions assumed by Dr. Croli— the sun's direct heat being in winter one-fifth less than it now is— evaporate* from tho oceans and minor water surfaces ot tho globe wouid bo so scanty and tho atmosphere consequently so dry that precipitation would bo very light. Careful analysis of rainfall data shows that in our epoch more than one-half of the earth's land masses receives only about fifteen or twenty inches of rain annually, the rest averaging from twenty- five to fitty, and six per cent, getting about seventy-five inches. Were all the land ofjlhe northern hemisphere to receive fifty inches of rain, or its equivalent, forty-two inches of snow, in a year, this deposit; would not account for all the known phenomena of glaciution. But on Dr. Croll's theory, the annual precipitation in the glacial epoch could scarcely have averaged eighty per cent, of thejpreeent quantity.

T, Barnum, died at :22 o clock this evening, in the presence of his grief stricken family. During the period of Barnum's invalidism and confinement to the house, which began twenty- one weeks ago last Friday, there have been frequent fluctuations in his condition from each of which he rallied althougli in each instance with slightly lowered vitality. The change for the worse which occurred last night, however, was so pronounced that it convinced the physicians that the patient had not many more hours to live. During his confinement he has been down stairs only twice, although sitting up most of the time, and being cheerful and conversationally inclined in _waking moments. After an attack which came upon him shortly before midnight, Barnnni suffered a good deal of pain. Beseemed to realize that ho could not live much longer, and spoke of the approaching end with calmness. During his illness physicians had been careful about administering morphine or sedatives through fear that they might produce ujterior ill effects.

C., April 7.— Senator night Barnum spoke of this and said that when all hope war gone he wished to be given sedatives which would allay pain an d make death as peaceful as possible. This forenoon he roused somewhat while Rev. Mr. Fisher bent over the dyin^ man and spoke to him works of religious consolation. Barnura's eyes brightened as the scriptural promises were recalled to mm and he half nodded his head in assent. Shortly after 11 o'clock he took a sedative from Dr. Hubbard and soon afterward sank into a peaceful sleep. When the end finally came it was peaceful and to all appearances painless. Physicians say he had no organic disease whatever. Heart trouble had been apparent for the past few months, and there was gradual failure of his general mental powers resulting from old age. In a general way Barnum nre- scribed directions for his funeral. ' He wished it to be of private character and unostentatious. Phineas Taylor Barnum was born in Bethel,.Conn., on the 5th day of July, 1810. When young Barnum was 15 years old his father died, leaving no property, and he sought and obtained employment in various places, principally in Brooklyn and New York city. Having accumulated a little monsy he returned to Bethel and opened a small store. His business here he finally fa led, 1829, he estab- 4-1.1 i mi TT ^ weekly newspaper entitled The Herald of .

The following is a Copy of tho letter tendering his resignation to the governor of Vermont: UNITED STATES SENATE, WASHINGTON, D. C., April 6. — Sift: Considerations entirely personal lead me to tender to you, as the governor of the date of Vermont, my resignation of the office of senator of the United States, the resignation to take effect the 1st day of November, A, D. 1891.

In thus termiatning my official relationt with the state, I bsg to express to her steadfast, intelligent, and patriotic citizens my profoundest grati- ude for the long and unwavering onfidence and support they have given me, covering ?ji eventful period of a quarter of a century, in my efforts to >romote tmd defend, so far as I have been ble. their honor and welfare in common with that of all the people of the United tates. In ceasing to bo a senator I am proud that I continue to be a citizen of our beloved commonwealth, and that I may^ith my fellow citizens in private life continue to^trive for the maintenance of those principle? of liberty, equalityj and justice in government which have, without the shadow of turning, animated them from the foundation of the republic.

Thisi company imports from „„.„„,. ineideh near Bieslau, Germany a material known as oxide of aluminium. ~ oxide is manufactured from a spec clay called beauxite, which is nsed soda and forms _an alumihate of s6da\ When the latter is lixiviated in water, a precipitase is thrown down. This is the oxide of aluminium as prepared in Germany and shipped to Pittsburg. At the Works in the lattet place this powdered alumina is placed in a drying furnace, and moisture to the extent of about 33 per cent, of the whole weight is- driven off. It is then taken to the smelt- iug room, where a number of open iron vessels and pots are placed on the floor Ihe pots are of wrought iron, and are- hnedwith carbon, with a depression or well at the bottom of each, A large cat- bon electrode connected with the positive poles of huge dynamos, is placed at the- mouth of each pot, and the electric circuit is completed by conductors frotri the negative poles of the dynamos to the iron, pots. When tae current is turned on, and intense heat is generated between the carbon lining and the electrode, simti* Jar, only on a larger scale, to that between thp carbon points of an arc electric lamp. A quantity of flurids salts are thrown into these carbon-lined receptacles, which is soon converted into a molten bath. Into the latter is charged the powdered and dried oxide of aluminum, and the process of reduction commences, every particle of the powder being subjected to the action of the bath. The oxygen is absorbed by the carbon electrodes unl the contents of the pots are soon reduced to a metallic mall. This does not mix with the fluride bath, as their respective specific gravities are sufficiency different to prevent any IVinrtl-lO vm I rtn l*-n<«l.. u ,. * mechanical mixture.

Mr. Barnum has been four times a member of the Connecticut legislature and once mayor of Bridgeport. There is quite a romantic story connected with the second man iage of Mr. Barnum, which he love 'to tell. In 1858 he pave a lecture in Manchester, England. The rext day a gentleman named John Fish called upon him at the hotel where IIP was slopping. In tho course of conversation he assured Mr. Barnum that his success in life (he was a wealthy cotton miller) was attributable to Mr. Barnnm's autobiogrphy, for on reading it he was so fired with his ideas of making money that he branched out in decidedly un-English fashion and was rewarded for his daring and especiall" his advertising by affluence. Later Mr. Fish erected a new engine in his railU, which his daughter christened "Barnum," After the death of the fir«t Mrs. Barnum.

During this time 1 usually feel so entirely absorbed in tho contemplation of the stranger's life, that at last I no longer see clearly the face of the unknown wherein I undesigneclly look, nor distinctly hear the voice of the speakers, which before served, in some measure, as a commentary on the text of their features. For a long time I held ouch visions as delusions of the fancy, and the more so as they showed me even the dress nnd motinns ot the actors, rooms, furniture, and other accessories. By way of a test, I once, in a lamiliar family circh at Kirchburg, related the secret history of a seamstress who just left the room and the house. I had never seen her before in my life. People were astonished and laughed, but were not to be persuaded that 1 did not previously know the relations of which I spoke, for what I had uthred was the literal truth. On my part, J was no less astonished that my dream pictures were confirmed by the reality. I became more attentive to the subject, and when propriety admitted it, 1 would relate to those whose life thus passed before me the subject of my vision, that I might thereby obtain confirmation or Refutation cf it.

The pure metal is poured into moulds and made into small pigs and bars. The progress of reduction is thus a direct and continuous one in which the action of heat other than that of the electrical current, which is sufficient to fuso the. oath of fluride salts and the alumina, does not enter. The material goes into the pot as alumina, a powder, and comes out converted as a pure metallic_ aluminium, worth at the present market price $2 per pound. Five yaars ago this metal cost $20 per pound. t There are abundant derosits of bauxite in this country, notably in" North Carolina, from which alumina could be reduced, but as yet they have not been successfully worked. Or at least the manufacturers nnd it more advantageous to use the imported raw material. But they think it will not be long before they will be able to obtain the home product of sufficient pure quality to successfully compete with the foreign article. HEALTH NOTES.
