Of course the explanation was obvious; be had taken the wrong bag, and his own wedding suit was en route for Boston, without either bride or bridegroom, on a wedding tour of its own. Fortunately his friend was a man of about the same size, and by borrowing an outfit he was enabled to reach the church in time and no one was any the wiser. The story leaked out, however, and on his return from the honeymoon trip he had a lively half hour at his club.—New York Tribune. Civilization and Motherhood. Nature intended woman to be beautiful, healthy and happy. But her multiplied miseries have prevented her from properly performing her maternal mis- blon, impaired her physical functions and poisoned the sources of new life. The mothers of one generation mold the men and women of thenexi. A sick mother cannot produce healthy descendants. Kbe is simply a transmitter of sickness to posterity. And the majority of mankind are born sick. So the cMef causes of sickness are continued, and the tide or human infirmity flows forever onward. In civilized life not one woman in five hundred is fitted for the office of motherhood on account of complaints common to the sex. This may seem a startling statement, but it is amply attested by those peculiarly qualified by extensive professional experience to give an opinion. And Htill. despite these facte, there are fore gleams of a more glorious future than ever imagined by man.—Hall's Journal of Health. Electricity from Coal. A French chemist, who has been giving considerable attention to the problem of heating and lighting from & single source, has devised a novel stove, which in appearance resembles an ordinary heating stove. It is so arranged internally that the waste of heat is -utilized for the generation of electricity. This is secured by a number of rectangular boxes of sheet iron, containing the necessary metallic elements for furnishing the current These elements are in- Want all they can get At Good Prices. sulated by asbestos, and tbe cooling is effected partly by the shape in which the metallic alloys are cast and partly by a circulation of air. The current obtained is not great in amount, but the result of tins attempt seems to be favorable. Accumulators are used for storing up the electricity, and as the heating is required for a much longer period than for lighting, the electrical energr, which would be lost during the hours of daylight, is saved. A point of considerable moment is that tbe heat utilized in this way is waste heat, BO that any portion that can be recovered in the form of electricity is so much gain.—Philadelphia Record.

It in known that tho hoofs of horses wore protected by boots of leather at a very early period in the world's history —at a time which at leant antedates Pliny and Aristotle, both of whom make mention of tho fact. These leather boote were (sometimes studded with metal nails, but more uKuully worn without extra, trimming, tho ehcupnefw of that commodity making it possible for the owner of the Hteed to "reboot" him at any time.—tit.

The Brain Jar of the Military Step. Dr. Colin, regimental physician in the French army, has published the results of nis investigations into the effects of regular marching in disciplined bodies upon soldiers. The regularity of the step causes the indefinite repetition of a chock of the bones and brain, infinitely more deleterious than an irfegular walk, and to this regular repetition of the shock to the same parts of the body are due the peculiar aches, pains and illnesses of the troops. In a one day march, he says, this shock is repeated 40,000 times, and often the strongest men, who can walk the same distance without difficulty when not in line, succumb to the strain in two or three days. Dr. Colin's preventive is a rubber heel in all military boots. This heel has been tried at bis instance in the French infantry, he says, and the result has been found to be a great relief to the soldiers. The experiments with the rubber heel are still in progress.—Medical Record. A Mole Incident. A characteristic incident occurred yesterday afternoon in connection with Isaac Uochran'B Bale of horses at the Eagle hotel. A pair of mules were brought out, hitched to a wagon and driven by Harry Cochran. "This is a fine pair of mules," said Auctioneer McFarlan. "Just drive them up the street to let tho people see bow nicely they can travel." After going a short distance they were no longer of one mind, but one wanted to go one way and one the other. In their efforts to part company they nearly ran into a colored man, who, trying to get away, fell into the water trough. Then they displayed their speed by running off out East Gay street, throwing their driver, Harry Cochran, out and badly breaking the wagon. They were caught out near the nurseries. The mules were not sold that day.— West Chester (Pa.) News. Fireproof MaterUli. At the Berlin exhibition of means and contrivances for the prevention of accidents in industries and otherwise, prizes -were awarded for the following processes for nreproofing, respectively diminishing tbe combustibility of tissues, curtain materials and theatrical scenery: For light tissues, sixteen pounds ammonium sulphates, five pounds ammonium carbonate, four pounds borax, six pounds boric acid, four pounds starch, or one pound dextrine, or one pound gelatine, and twenty-five gallons water, mixed together, heated to 86 degs. Fahrenheit, and the material impregnated with the mixture, centrifugated and dried, and then ironed as usual One quart of the mixture, costing about three or four cents, is enough to impregnate fifteen yards of material. For curtain materials, theatrical decorations, wood and furniture thirty pounds ammonium chloride are mixed with so much floated chalk as to give the mass consistency. It is then heated to 125 to 150 degs. Fahrenheit, and the material given one or two coats of it by means of a brush. A pound of it, costing about eight-tenths of a cent, is sufficient to cover five square rods.—Berlin Letter. A Terrible Thing In a Battle. The house committee on naval affairs for some days has had under consideration a bill providing for the addition to the navy of a novel craft. The feature of the design is found in an enormous submarine gun carried at the bow below the water line. The projectors feel that they have now a practicable means at hand to drive an enormous shell loaded with an explosive charge of gunpowder or gun cotton into tbe hull of any ironclad afloat and explode it in the very vitals of the ship. According to the design submitted to the committee and explained by General Berdan, a hydraulic buffer projects from the bow of the vessel. This is so adjusted that it will stop the boat a distance of eight feet from the enemy's ship without injury to the boat. At this short range the buffer automatically discharges the submarine gun directly at the hull of the ship, and lodges within it a shell carrying a bursting charge of 450 pounds of powder, sufficient to blow down every bulkhead in the ship and wreck the bottom.—Cincinnati Commercial Gazette. ~ An Officer in the MlllUs. "Did it ever occur to you," BaidaWest Point graduate and a national guardsman the other day, "what it means to be a popular officer in the national guard? Something quite different, I assure yon, from being a popular officer in the regular army. Why? For this reason: In the army, if an officer takes care of hifl men, sees that they get their clothing and pay promptly, looks out for their interests in case they are so unfortunate as to be locked up in the guardhouse, no matter how strict a disciplinarian he may be, or how he may make the men stand around, he will be popular with them. But here in the guard the relationship between officer and men is entirely changed. The rank and file, who are men that need no supervision of their personal affairs, expect their officers to be 'good fellows' socially. "An officer need not be a strict disciplinarian to be very popular, but it is only fair to say that the majority of national guard officers, especially in some of our crack commands, have just as thorough an understanding of military requirements as regular army officers. Everything else being equal, therefore, the popularity of the men :may be compared as that of a man among employees or among his club equals.' I mention these facts to show how easily a regular army officer could fail to succeed in the guard, and, vice versa, how impossible it would be for a guard officer, whose easy going society ways are,an essential part of his success in his rank, to make a name for himself in the army."—Brooklyn Eagle, A Belle Marries a Brave. Honey C. Holt, a full blood Winnebago Indian, has just been married to Misa Maud C. Williams, of New Boston, His. The couple rnot and loved while ho was traveling with a number of his tribe advertising a patent medicine. He is not a bad looking young man, has a magnificent physique and is fairly well educated. The bride is a very pretty young lady, and was quite a belle in her neighborhood. She could have selected a husband from among a dozen thrifty young farmers, but preferred to become the wife of tho red man, who, she says, has not a single bad habit. The couple left to join the band at Abington, Ills,— Cor, Chicago Times. ii (luiiiirUmmllH Uioi'oiiKlUy uquliMiuil for ul work, iiiul nn imliiH will I'* 1 Mliiu-uil to HludiiiiU Hi" IK-HI iioMttlltlo oiiiiortumty lo inii'Huo Uiulr dummi llmm of nuiily.

Too Lobster Story from Mnlne. Lobsters are going into the freak business quite largely this winter. An Eastport fisherman secured a white one the other day and now a man at Peak's island has found an even greater curiosity—a veritable blue lobster. It is a beautiful specimen of the crustacean, and the bright cerulean has extended even to the ends of its long feelers. The lobsters have evidently been attending a fancy dress party.—Bangor (Me.) Commercial. It is said that many of the German colonists on the Volga river who are sufferers from the Russian famine, in order to save fuel, have dug holes in the ground, subterranean shelters in which they burrow like foxes. There is a lad in Whitingham,, Vt., eighteen years old, who is 6 feet 1Q inches tall and still growing, ge weighs Glad to Get Kid of Him. A few days ago Governor Buchanan was called upon to exercise executive clemency in a very peculiar case._ The person concerned was a man held in jaU at Jackson till he should produce a $200 fine. He had been there over a year without showing any signs of liquidating with the commonwealth, and it is probable he would have remained & prisoner for the next fifty years if payment had been waited for. The county court, recognizing him as an incubus to the amount of forty cents a day, passed a resolution asking the governor "for the Lord's sake" to forgive that little $300 and let the man get out and earn his own living. The trial judge and the attorney general and the members of the jury all appeared on the petition sent up in accordance with the resolution, but not a single friend of the prisoner was among the signers.—Nashville American. Made Her Loft Handed by a Blow, Three years ago a young lady pf Fall Riyer, Mass., was hit upon the left side of her head by a falling sign as she was walking along a street in Boston. This was followed by brain fever. After some weeks she was as well in mind and body as ever, but from a right handed person she had become so left handed that she could neither cut, sew nor write with her right hand, but found it easy to do all these things with her left. Her right hand was just about as useful as her left had been before she was hurt. What is strange is that, with BO recent a change in the use of her hands, she never makes an awkward motion and is as graceful in the use of her left hand aa if she had been born left handed.—Boston Post. Henc and Duck*. Fish stories are good, but they cannot compare in interest with the hen stories that were told at the Plowman Farmers' meeting in John Hancock building. James Rankin, of South Easton, the essayist, described a pair of healthy chickens hatched from a double yolked eggs which were joined at the wings by a fleshy integument. They had to be separated, because one of them developed a tendency to turn somersaults, which proved a source of annoyance and danger to his less acrobatically inclined mate. He also told of a. flock of ducks that would never enter the water unless accompanied by a young lady attendant, and at a certain hour'every day they would come to the house and quack for her to come out and go with them to the water's edge.—Boston Transcript A Greedy Mountain Lion's Fate. Dr. French, a seventy-year-old resident of Alamo, killed a mountain lion one day last week at the Tule ranch in the pineries. The lion had crawled into a pig pen through a small hole, and after feasting on two shoats was too big to get out through the hole. Thus he was an easy prey to the doctor, who gave him a hypodermic injection of birdshot in order to see him perform. He performed to the entire satisfaction of his tormentor. The doctor administered a 44-caliber pill, which put him to sleep. The Animal bad immense claws, and measured six feet; from tip to tip.—San -" Sun. Vermont peer Return to New York. The attempt to stock the Green mountains with deer will doubtless prove a complete failure. A number of years ago some of the animals were brought from New York and turned loose upon the mountain slopes in the thinly inhab-. ited sections of the state. That they have bred and increased it is quite natural to suppose, but the reason that they are not now anymore numerous than they were five years ago can be attributed to the fact that in the winter they cross Lake Champlain on the ice into the Adirondack wilderness, never to return,—Vermont Cor. Albany Journal. The Preacher's Celluloid Cuffs Took Fire. The Rev. Boles, the pastor who has been holding revival services at Manning, la., has met with a serious accident. A furnace used in the church for heating water for baptisms suddenly exploded, and the Rev. Boles carried it out. He had the misfortune to be wearing celluloid cuffs, which also took fire, and in an instant his clothes were on fire. Both of his arms were burned and charred in a frightful manner, and the attending physicians say his injuries are fatal.—Cor. Indianapolis Journal. ' A very pleasant sight was witnessed on the Brooklyn water front a few days ago, and one that is of too rare occurrence nowadays; it was the docking of four American steamships almost at the same time. A colored man at High Point, N. C., fell from an electric light polo to the pavement, a distance of twenty-five feet, the other day and is reported to have escaped without even a bruise.
