TESTING IRON COLUMNS. Simple Device for Measuring Their may be its neighbor, Peru, during this. It appears that the United States consulate at one of tho Peruvian ports has been sacked by a mob with apparent police sanction. The ottlcer acting as consular agent for the United States was fired upon and wounded iu the foot. The news comes in n brief telegram through the United Stalest minister to Peru, John Hicks.. He omitted such •sseutlol details as tho name, plaae and name of the wounded officer, or they were dropped from his dispatch in telegraphic transmission. The telegram is as follows: ."Lima., Peru, April 5. — Gresham, Washington: At (place omitted) a mob attacked the Masonic ladige, sacked tho building and burned .the fixtures iu the street. Incidentally the United Stalest consulate was invaded, the furnishings destroyed, and the acting consular agent shot in the foot. The archives were saved intact. A squad of Peruvian police looked on while the mob performed the work, without interference. Mail brings particulars. (signed) • "Hicks." Decretory Gresham conferred with the president on the subject, and this afternoon-.sent the following telegram to the minister: "Hicks, Lima: Protest against the failure of the authorities to afford protection to the consulate, and if the- facts are well established ask for an expression of regret, the prompt prosecution of-the guilty parties, and reparation for injury to American property or person.

WHAT CAM10 OUT OK THE TUE10. to designate the tlghl rag 1 nl so violently lu ytvuv* a,go. lluill Kri\y, who was recently eleoled vice president of Switzerland, is a devoted friend of Ant rioa. When our late unpleasantness occurred ho left llu> Swiss university, whore ho was studying, and came lo Ami rlo-a otilisi- ln,u in lite Twenty eighth Illinois. In ISti'J he resigned a lionionanoy and raised a company, serving as captain In the Klghly-stvoud Illinois, lie was mad 1 prisoner at Gettysburg and received the brevet rank of major on his release. Four deaths by drowning wore the rosnli of a ploa.sniv tUshlug party on Lake Ponteharlralu. Louisiana, Sunday nflornoon. There were ten people in the party and Hie names of tit • drovui' od, who were all ladies, are: Aijnos Hynn, Mary -Mymi, KtHe Kolley, and ThomaH 'K'vlloy. Xoivej of tho pavement. The whole of this ornamon- i.:il.lou is bordered by arabesques. The lid closes with n spring, so that ii could not be opened from the inside it' ouco shut. To open the chest it has to bo unlocked in iho usual way, and then a half I urn more must lie given, which release* Ihe spring. The sty'.o •.>(' ornamentation suggests that the chest is of i Italian workmanship; ii is believed, in- 1 deed, to bo a cassone in which a bride's : trousseau was inclosx-d and conveyed : to her future home. Did you ever think of this: During the I'.iuht your watch is qniei, as ii wore, that is, 1 it hangs in your vest without motion or touch. If you don't wind ii at night the mainspring is then relaxed instead of being in that condition during tho day. By winding it in the morning the mainspring remains close and tight all day. It ko:-ps the was (old that probably no young railway olllcer ever had liner opportunity Ihnn he. One banker said lo me that Mr. Morgan, who is not often enlhusl- nstle, in speech, declared to him the day that Mc.Leod became Corbln's successor in charge of Heading that the greatest opportnully offered to any railway manager was McLeod's; that l.he young President had his entire eonlidonee and would receive h^ snpp<wl in those things which he had in mind In do. Placed, therefore, In charge of tills property, and having nt his back a man esteemed the tliiest genius ns a linnucinl orgnnl/.or of Ids generation with Ihe exception of Gould, a man whose credit is so high thai the mere acceptance by his house of the responsibility of caring for the debenlui'es of the Union Paclllc. was .sullicient. lo establish their value in Hie market, and a man who also controlled in various ways more capital perhaps than any other banker in Wall street, Mr. Mcl.eod had everything lo his hand excepting patience. Such is Iho comment here, and it is regarded as inexplicable that so brilliant a man as he unquestionably is, so eompolonf as a manager of railways, should not have ivalt/ed that his company did not con- In)! capital enough lo make it possible ! for it to bo dotlant of Pierponl Morgan | and ils interests. T. C. Plnll, upon whose- application n receivership was provided for (he Philadelphia aud Heading railroad, said u>- d:»y: "Tho resignation of A. A. McLeod as President of tho Heading was as great a surprise to me as to anybody. Mr, Mcl.ood's (reaimoni has been undeserved. His tlnanoial measures have boon devised with the best motives aud wholly in the interest of tho Hooding. As a practical railroad man Ids ability cannot bo questioned. 1 suppose lie will now give his entire time to the affairs of tho Boston and Maine and tho Now York and Now Kngland railroads, of which ho is President." .1, Kdward Simmons, Chairman of the Committee of General Mortgage Bondholders of tho Heading said: "The retirement of Mr. Me.Lood was brought about by the action of tho bondholders. It is one object accomplished "Have you ever noticed," said a St. Lonisiin yesterday to a reporter for tin Republic of that city, "those nui.ssivi: iron pillars now standing erect in the basement of the new Planters' house? Well, did you ever stop to think of (the Imense, weight they will be compelled to support steadily for many, many yeai-.-i? Oil, yon have. But I suppose you have thought the monu&i'.'turoMS just those pillars and sol:l them wilhiiut. knowing anything about how IIMIC'I weight they would bear or how Ion.; they wnnH bear it. Lei me tell vi:;i about that. 'Those pillars are cast in the same manner as are cast-iron stoves—by running the liqnid metal into sand molds; bm alongside of each pillar is cast an i;un bar, from Ihe same- metal. That ln'.r is precisely an ini-h square and live and one-half feet, in length. When I I cold it, is subjected to a very simple Koch end of the bar is placed up- table and weights are suspended the center by n. rope. II must a. tonsil strength of 500 pounds to the square inch. The lest, may begin with -100 pounds and be gradually Increased until the bar is found to lie perfectly supporting ' the required weight. If it breaks, for Instance, :il •ISO or -100 pounds then tho pillar cixu front Iho pot: of metal which cast (he bar is discarded, broken up and put into the pot again, wllh more pig-iron axldod. The pillars, yon know, are largely made 1 from scrap-iron, and the manufnelnrors cannot know the strength of (hi! cast until it is tested. The addition of pig-iron, in Ihe event of failure, brings the cast up to the standard. "Six or eight of the pillars designed for the new 1 Maul el's' house had to be recast in tills way." Lytst. Sunday, says the 'Wliatcoui (Wash.) Itcveille, Banning Austin, accompanied by n little cur dog and his trusty Winchester, tool; a stroll through the woods on the Lake Whnteom ranch In the hope to scare up n deer or pheasant, or perhaps a, bear. Coining to a sknnk-cnbbago hollow, through which a brook trickled, the hunter noticed a hugs hollow cedar, the cat 1.1111:0 of which, by its worn bark showed "signs" of hear. Tho little dog ran into the tree, and came back bo;".l over heels. Something had struck bint, and lie ran around Hie tree in a very craxy aud L'omieal fashion. Austin U":iily :ll-.'d laughing lo see Ihe antics of the dog; but was (••ohorodjjUp when hU big bear dog came tearing through tile brush, nii'.'l raised a great racket at the base of the tree. The bristles stood up on his back, aud he had evidently found game, lie jumped back with a growl and a hugs head appeared in the hole. The bear, a huge fellow, ::s big a.s a yearling calf, came out and had a wait/, with (he dog.
