"MooiishiulUK" 1U ' 1 to bo nourishing in Kentucky »t present. At no perlotl in the history of the state has so nnich whisky been placed on the market on which the government has failed to collect its tax as during •the past year. The reports circulated during the last, session of congress concerning a disposition to increase the revenue on distilled spirits gave a great impetus to the business of the illicit, distiller In the south. The lawless element, in the mountains of Kentucky appeared to see increased profits in the prospects, anil those already engaged in the truffle. Immediately enlarged their plants while new "wildcat" stills appeared in nearly every glen sufficiently concealed to avoid detection. As a. result, the quantity of liquor thus manufactured has been enormous. The rise and progress of "moonshbiing" in Kentucky would till volumes of interesting .reading, replete with deeds of daring on the part of the rugged characters engaged in defying the government, whose courage is equaled only by the cool, determined revenue officers in their efforts to suppress the illicit traffic. According to the government estimate, three-lifths of all the whisky furnished the consumer on -which the government has failed to levy a tax comes out of the glens and cm-cms of the Kentucky mountains. In the aggregate it exceeds 1,000,000 gallons annually. Some idea of the magnitude inoonshining has attained in this section of the south can bo secured from the estimate when it is understood that, more than 1,000 revenue officials are constantly operating in Kentucky, immediate and remote, while the force opposed to them is about, ten to one. This includes the owners of stills, those engaged in working the plants, getting the m'>-duc.t to market, watching the revenue officials at. Louisville and reporting their arrangements to make raids, and the managers, who determine when a locality shall be abandoned find stills destroyed, which occurs when too much attention has been attracted to a given, territory by lights with .revenue detectives. The- army of moonshhrr.'s is probably as well armed and disciplined in their'way and as courageous as any body of men in the world. This fact was peculiarly demonstrated last week, when Phil Watson, the well-known revenue officer, /with thirteen deputies, was muted by ten moonshiners in an open light, which took place just across the Tennessee line in the Cumberland mountains. Tom Harris, a moonshiner who has de- lied, the federal authorities in these mountains almost, since the 'war ti.x on spirits made distilling profitable in the United States, was Unown fo be working n number of stills near where the tight occurred. For a year the otlieers had been watching the locality, preparing to make a raid when the occasion was propitious. Last week the authorities in some manner received information that, the result- of a big "run" was to be sent to market There were nearly lil'ty b.U'ioU of the precious liquor in readiness to be placed on a small sent do'wn the Cumberland river to be distributed along the route to a number of customers. The officers were anxious to capture this treasure, Harris and his gang and destroy the stills. They ligured on having some lighting to do, and were heavily armed in consequence. Harris is noted for his desperate courage, and dining his varied career in these mountains since the war has frequently refused to surrender, even 'when covered at close range by murderous rifles. By some happy chance, though frequently wounded, he escaped arrest. Watson and his deputies in addition to carrying two heavy revolvers and a Winchester, each had a double-barreled shotgun hung to their saddles. In pursuit of moonshiners officers count heavily on the latter weapon. At close range, loaded with 10 buckshot, terrible execution can bo done, and -while a poor shot with a AVlnchester may get, nervous under lire. and miss his aim with a single bullet, yet with a shotgun he is sure of at least winging his man. The officers were in an isolated sei tiou of country and were proceediiij with great caution. They knew about the locality of the stills, but the mountain crags and glens were so similar that they were somewhat, confused. While riding along a ridge they observed two heavy spring wagons, containing several men, approaching in an opposite direction. The officers knew that they were either moonshiners or their sympathizers and arranged an. ambush. The thick cedars lining the roadside aided them. The officers dismounted and held their shotguns cocked. As the wagon approached it was noticed that while the men wore belts and pistols , no rides were in sight. When the wagons were between the lines Phil Waston called upon the men to surrender. The moonshiners, says a Pikoville, Ky., correspondent of the St, Louis Republic, were taken completely uy surprise, but acted with such promptness that they almost turned the tables. The small mules attached to the wagons bounded forward under the lash and had gained several lenghts before a shot was tired. At the same instant the men grasped their rifles lying in the bottom of the wagon and rolled off their seats promiscuously, tiring as they reached the ground and rushing to cover. The lirst volley of the officers disabled the mules and wounded several of the moonshiners, but the next moment, they had scattered around the cover of the officers { and the bullets from their AVinchesters were cutting the cedars in every direction. The splendid cover of heavy cedar trees and big rocks saved many lives on both sides. I'hlil WatsonV* courage was never questioned even by his worst enemy, but he values his life as highly as any man. and understood that the odds were in favor of the men he was hunting. He had recognised Tom Harris among his opponents and knew the lighting men with whom he associated. Then, too, ho was aware that lie was in a. hostile community in -which strangers were regarded with suspicion, and then other moonshiners were liable to bo in the community and come to the assistance of Harris and his men. Under these circumstances he gave the word to retreat. Several of the officers' horses had been shot and before they could got. out. of range of the moon- shiners' rifles two men were killed. Only one moonshiner was killed and four wounded. Many of the. men engaged In moon- shining in Kentucky have been following the vocation since the war. Prior to that time they had distilled liquor on a small scale merely for home consumption, and • though occasionally were never molested. Suddenly 're- guilty of a violation of the law, yet turning from the front In 1805, many of them found a demand for whisky in their community, and with the margin of 00 cents per gallon in favor of the manufacturer who could avoid the government tax collector, they very naturally preferred to avoid the em- ibarrassiug details incident to complying with the federal internal revenue laws. It was no particularly difficult matter to escape detection, especially in the mountainous districts of the state. Here the sentiment favors the individual. The natives fail to appreciate the distinction made by the government. They understand that they can raise corn, grind it. into meal and make bread thereof without interference, yet when they attempt to make malt, of their grain or extract the alcohol from it a government ganger comes around, and after enforcing a a most harrassing number of details concludes by demanding one-half the value of the product. Their limited sphere has never enabled them to rasp tin' ethics of political economy, and the whole affair is contrary to their ideas of individual liberty. For every dollar's worth of the product of the illicit still destroyed in Kentucky it costs the government ten times as much in salaries, for revenue officials regardless of lives lost on both sides. For every gallon of "wild-cat" liquor intercepted en route to market! at. least ten barrels are successfully disposed of to the retailers. The desperation •which characterises the actions of the average Kentucky moonshiner in his efforts to resist arrest, cannot be attributed to any particular fear he has of the consequence of his lawless life. Of the hundreds arrested annually in Kentucky and taken to Louisville foi trial not one-tenth are convicted, and in ease of conviction the sentence only from one to three years In the penitentiary. Xone are ever convicted of murder in connection with the death of officers engaged in their capture This is explained by the fact that, the particiular author of an officer's death can never be identified. AVhere probably a dosen revenue detectives and as, many moonshiners are lighting from behind cover (when; their lights invariably lake place,) faces are seldom seen. The average moonshiner will tell you, if on sufficiently intimate terms to question his motives, that, he lights "by jrad, sir, because? I wont, have strangers interfering in my buslness : sir." The history of the manner in -which the illicit liquor is placed before, the consumer after it leaves the mountain still is as interesting as the process of manufacture in the crude vessels. As the country in which this lawless element thrives is peculiarly adapted, bj reason of the absence of railroads telegraph lines and other channels of tricts, to avoid interference, the sanu circumstances favor the marketing of the produce. Stills are necessarily located near a water course, usually small mountain stream tributary to navigable river. When the, liquor is ready for shipment several barrels arc loaded onto a raft or natboat and by night is removed to a point, where sus piciou is avoided, and then taken. t( the nearest town, when desired, ii wagons. Barrels bearing the guager'.s stamp from which the liquor has beei sold are used to receive the liquor, aiu' thi) 'transfer is so skillfully /wile tha the fraud is not. detected once in a linn drcd times. The prolit is somethin enormous and many of the desperate leaders of the lawless element In tin Kentucky mountains : could secun $100,000 in cash on ten days' notic.i should they be cap-lured and need Ilia amount for defense. lu some instances the owner and director of several stills is a resident of some small mountain town, and with liis money Invested in the local bank he lives at his ease. He is frequently ai church member, a liberal fellow, and In his rugged way a most thorough southern gentleman. As his guest- you -would receive most cordial treatment, but let anything suspicious arise and on a moment's notice you would liud the courtly old gentleman reaching for a revolver of large caliber, conveniently located In the pocket of his long-tailed ^t'l This class is the brains of the element that causes 1'ucle Sam's internal revenue collectors so much trouble in the south.

In the placer mines of California flue ;old Is saved by allowing the water from the sluice to pass over a rough blanket, which 1 collects )md retains the particles. There was probably no such man as Romulus. The first historian who mentions him lived at a distance of time so great as to throw extreme discredit on the story.

It. is estimated that, of the 0,000,000 inhabitants of London over 1,000,000 are poor—living on less than £1 per week for each, family—while over 300,000 are in chronic poverty. The army medal given by the Duke of Cambridge for long service and good conduct has been awarded to 150 non-commissioned otlieers and men belonging to the British army.

The animal loss from railroad accidents in the United States due to the destruction of railroad property and the compensation of deaths and injuries, and leaving out entirely destruction of merchandise , reaches over $12,000,000. Among the most interesting of the pieces of gold plate used at the recent royal wedding breakfast at Buckingham palace were several magnilicaut flagons taken from the flagship of the admiral who commanded the Spanish Armanda. The hanging gardens of Babylon did not hang, nor were they gardens. They were terraces, supported by arches and overgrown with trees.

A Maiuo man has boon tried for taking in potatoes at. ouo door of his barn and selling them out the other. The trouble.' was that, one part of his barn was in Maine and the other part in New Brunswick. Ho bought potatoes in Canada and, moving them across the barn, sold them in Maine Avithout paying duty. The archives of the port of South- ] nmpton. England, contain a curious naval law of the fourteenth century. The document holds the captain of a vessel responsible for the value of the goods lost if his vessel is wrecked on any voyage begun In spite of the opinion of the majority of the crew that the wind was unfavorable. An English woman in Ixmdoii chased a thief who had stolen her pocket- took, caught him and held him by the collar until help came, and he was ar- reste'd. A young woman at Copenhagen showed similar pluck; as a reward she was presented with a diamond brooch by the chief of police and a newspaper man offered to marry licr out of admiration for her exploit. The railroad system of this country began lu 1827. Now there are 214.528 miles of track In the United State's and .'I54,f!10 in the world. The number of passengers carried by the United States railroad in 18'J2 mis 550,010,802, and the total earnings were Jj!l,- m024.45a The capital stock was $4,800,170,051, and the dividends ,fl)0,71!),757. Th« number of men employed was 784,285. In parts of Germany, when at even- lug the clouds rise and bear some resemblance Jto u> great tree—that is, when there is, as it were, a pillar of vapor between the horison ami the overarching canopy of cloud—the peasants call it. "Abraham's tree'," or "Adam's tree." A mackeral sky provokes (lie saying: "We shall have wind, Adam's tree Is putting forth leaves.' 1 If the leaves appear in the afternoon it is a sign of flue weather; If early in the morning, of storm. The first electric organ to reach this country has arrived at the Boston custom-house from /'England. It has been built for St. Thomas church', Tauiiton. Another curious importation is a "Bible wagon," which has arrived from Glascow. It is an elaborate affair, strangely fashioned and bright with varnish and gilding. It Is equipped with seats, book racks and a high pulpit, which, with its stand, is mounted on a swivel and can bo "aim- eel" In any direction. The harvester was Invented by Me, Cormick in 1831. Since that time this machine has boon brought to such perfection that, it is said, it will cut and bluel an acre of grain in forty-live minutes. To such an extent has machinery superseded hand work in the grain farms of the northwest that, it is estimated that the labor of one man Avill raise enough grain to support a thousand men for a year, while the labor of a second will transport it to market, and that of a third will prepare it for food. The common purslane, which grows anywhere as a weed, produces more seeels than any other plant. Ono se!eel pod, by actual count has 3,000 seeds, and as a. plant will sometimes liavo twenty pods, the seeds from a single year's growth may, therefore 1 , number <iO,000. There is no instance e>f similar fruitfuluess in any other plant growing in this country. A "wllel hair" is the most annoying freak of nature a man can be> afliicted Avith. It. grows in from the eyelids, instead out, and, constantly brushing against the eyeball, sometimes causes an irritation that results iu loss of sight. To pull it out give's only temporary relief, since In a few Aveeks it comes back, as Avoll grown and strong as ever. The only Avay to kill it is to destroy the sac from which it snrlugs. This is done by means of the electric, needle. Americans first introduced schools ditto Siam. Americans lirst introduced steam rice mills and steam sawmills.

One of the most famous and fatal poisons uesd in ,Ta.pan anel .Tava is obtained from the bamboo. The young shoots of the Cane Avhen they first push through the ground are covered with fine', browish hairs, which under the microscope appear to be bayonet- like spikes of crystals of sllex, Infinitely sharp and holloAV. Small quantities of those hairs administered in the* food bring on ulcerntion of the whole alimentary canal, stimulating malignant dysentery. The action must, bo of ;n. mechanical rather ithan chemical nature, just as the spores of the common puffball act upon the- eyes. The enormous amount of heat habitually wasted in cooling molten slag has incited an Australian to work out a scheme for generating steaui by this means. The bailor, or receptacle for the water has running through it from top to bottom funnel-shaped pipes, something after the stylo of a big cau- dle; mend. The molten slag is poured into these receptacles and communicates its heat to the -water. AVhen the slag becomes solid a door at the bottom of each receptacle is opened, the slag is knocked out and the' whole filled again. The- apparatus has bee'ii tried and 100 pounds pressure of steam raised. CLIPPED AM.) PASTED. At a recent barbecue in southwest (icorgin, says the Atlantic Constitution, seven strange ami hungry-looking men were seen huddled together in a corner of the Aveiods. re-mote- from tin- big crowd. But now and then, while- the "carcasses" were roasting in the pits, one of the ine-ii would come forward, get a whiff of the savory meats and return te> his disconsolate companions. No one seemed to know the men— they were- strangers to all and yet they ban the appearance of farmers who had raise-el a big crop of cotton at ti cents. But every body knew them after the horn blew for dinner. With a. mad rush those hungry-look- lug men made for the table and with Aviiel and open mouths they we'iit to work. Shoulder after shoulder disappeared, the- men devouring everything In sight. The crowd stood amnscd and forgot, that it was hungry, teio. Those seven lank men were the attraction auel it was ne)t. until they coulel eat ue> more anel liael crawled olt' to rest—or die- that the> people remembore-d where they were and that, they had appetites. The chief of the barbecue approached the men and in a faint voice asked: "Where did you fellers come from and Avlie-H did you out before you struck this neighborhood V" Ono of the men answered: "Wo came from this comity but we've, been a-hldin' au' hungry. We Jos' heard that the ; war was over and that Sherman was a glvln' out rations, an' so we thought, we'd git some!" The chief of the barbecue fainted and they carried him away more dead than alive. The man that always has a joke to be printed came in with, a. ha ha In his voice. "Oh, 1 say," he exclaimed, "I've got a corker." 'What, is It?" -Inquired the helpless victim. "Did you celebrate the twenty-sixth of the alphabet?" "The what?" "The twenty-sixth of the alphabet- the fourth of July." "Conic off; what's the twenty-sixth of the alphabet, got to do With the- fourth of July?" "That's what it is." "I elon't see It." "I'll show you." and the joker hu- ha.'el some more. "You see, the twenty- sixth of the alphabet i.s one letter; one letter is y; y is the fourth of July and there you have it." "Anel there you have it, te>o," added the helpless victim as he? tired a paste- pot into the joker's neck.—Detroit: Free Press. The Violent Commotion In the stomach and bowels produced by a violent purgative and its consequent drenching action, never are, because It is impossible that they should be, followed by permanent good effects. No specific which weakens and convulses the organs for whoso relief It is used can do good. Blue pills, calomel, podyphyllin, salts and senna, vegetable or mineral purgative pills, are drastic remedies generally void of benefit. A reliable and effective substitute for them is Hostelter's Stomach Bitters, which effects a change both natural and thorough in the bowels whi'ti they are constipated.
