Crosesays there are three good I ?° to sea ^^ rubbish on their decks schools in German township that can't get teachers. Miss Abbie Good win of Burt is at Chester Guardian. In sailing ships, of course, it is necessary to have th6 weight as low down in the hull as may be, for the object Is to give the vessel "stiffness" and to counterbalance the pressure of the wind on her sails. But in steamers the weight of ballast heeded to prevent the ship from capsizing Is small; most of it is carried to immerse the propeller and to reduc'e rolling, and as a steamer's center of gravity is generally nearer to her deck than to her keel, ballast on deck steadies her more than ballast at the bottom of the hold. Some captains, it Is true, still refuse to believe that it can be safe to carry weight so high Up, Highland Park, Des Moines, to finish her school work. Geo. E. Marble, the merchant of Dolliver, is at Colfax, taking mineral water, we presume. Jos. Eldrldge has bought the old creamery nt Lone Rock and talks of making a store building of it.

A hypnotic company played at Wesley last week. The News says- On -Monday mVht one of their own subjects was put into a twenty-four hour-sleep aud awakened Tuesday evening;. During the day he was on ex- nibitton on a cot, in Kunz's west show window. Tuesday evening several from, the audience were asked on the stage, but the hypnotists apparently f-ould not get them under their control and were obliged to use their own man to perform with. steadily increasing. The Mancunia, which has just had her first experience of the Atlantic, is the first steamer in which provision for carrying water ballast above the water line. The sides are double, and the space between the inner and outer skins can be filled or emptied at will, so that there is no occasion to cumber her decks with solid ballast. Her captain's statement that this voyage in her was by far the most comfortable of 12 made by him across the Atlantic "in ballast," confirmed as it is by the record of the ship's clinometer, is certainly remarkable.

FINEST FINITE! THf\T MONEY GfVN BUY. CARTRIDGE BEER MUGS. The Ilrnas Shells Slant Hnve Been U»cd In the Late War to De the Real Thine:. Of all the war relics which have deluged the country, the new cartridge beer mugs are the most unique. A fashionable Xew York jeweler has discovered that large cartridges lend themselves to this purpose, and has prepared several attractive designs, says the New York World. The cartridge beer mugs are made from empty six-pound shells. The cartridges are a little more than three inches in diameter at the base and slightly narrower at the top, where the shell was placed. The opening is large enough to drink from comfortably. It is the same size as the hole made by these six-pounder shot in the sides of the Spanish warships. The cartridges are made of brass in order^ that they will stand the strain put upon them at the moment of explosion without bursting. This quality of brass will take a higher polish than poorer grades of the metal. When polished, the mugs glisten like gold. Some of the new mugs are arranged with detachable handles, so that the cartridge may be used as a vase. The only other decoration is a silver band on the front setting forth the history of the cartridge. The inscription records the name of the ship. HARD ON HIS NERVES.

Milwaukee & St. Paul R'y.—36t4 The old proof reader, who had been for more than a score of years correcting the thousand and one minor errors which the haste of newspaper-making allows to creep Into "copy" before it reaches the printer's hands, was a most methodical man, as proof readers are likely to be. He came to work at the same hour and minute every evening 1 , worked in the same methodical way and knocked off at the same time, starting immediately for home with one particular chum. But one nig-ht he made a change in his mode of procedure, which was the more remarkable corning from him. It was the end of the week, and like all welJ-regulated printers, he borrowed his weekly dollar and started for home. But instead of taking- the nearest road he struck off on a roundabout course. "What's the matter?" inquired his partner, "why don't you go down Twelfth street to-night instead of Taking- this long route?" The proof reader hesitated H moment and then saad: "Well, I'll tell you. I'm getting so I can't bear Twelfth street any more, the sagnp over the stores are so badly .spelled and punctuated." FOR OLD HARVARD. The Singular method Selected by MB student to Show Hid Pride. W.
