At these points the miners decided to resume work Monday on the new scale; Many of the dispatches criticise President Adams quite severely for the radical stand he has taken. Reports from Sand Run and Minerton say the men have decided to go to Work Monday, and advices from Buchtel and Straitsville are to the -same effect Point and Sherrods^ille decided not to accept the conditions of the Columbus compromise, but to submit the question to another convention. SAtiNSvii.tB, Ohio, June 18.— At a meeting of miners here the men decided to refuse to go to work Monday at CO .cents., .The men demand the resignation of Mc'Uruio and indorse Adams. .

At New York boot and shoo shops have stopped, but shipments from the east arc 10 per cent larger for June Lhus far than last year.

LINCOLN, 111., Juno 18.—Sheriff Hays and a half dozen deputies have been guarding the Lincoln Coal company's mine in this city since early yesterday, the owners having received word that their property was in clanger. It is believed serious trouble will arise unless the strike is settled within a few days. PANA, 111, June J8.—A secret circular was passed among- the union rainefs at the meeting at Millersville, signed by McBride and other oflicials of the National Miners' Union at Columbus, directing the miners to remain at Gump Pope until the miners at Pana came out, their supplies to bo furnished by the union from Columbus.

The New York and Philadelphia markets are dull, and at Boston a slight decline is seen in prices, with a large sale of territory wool at -jO cents, scoured. Western, holders appear to be expecting higher prices than can at present bo l-eali/.ed in eastern markets. Further concessions have not enlarged the demand for cotton g-oorts, and the recent report tlitit production has been close to last year's is s,aid to be bused upon returns from only the. more fortunate mills. That goods tiro accumulating is evident, biit sales luivu been distinctly improved with the weather. Wheat is only a fraction higher, the exports and ordinary consumption for the year having- already exceeded the government estimate of last year's crop by 134,000,000 bushels Western receipts for the week have been 3,47-1.404 bushels, against 'J.101,074 last year, and Atlantic exports onlv 1)08, S)'.)u-bushels, against 2, 220,087 last year. Cotton has yielded a fraction and tho report of acreage by* the Financial Chronicle indicates an increase of 2.00 per cent, with prospects decidedly more favorable than a year ug-o. While business is narrow, it is comparatively freo from losses by failure, for the liabilities reported in failures for the first week of June were only S3,r>Q7,a38, of which'$47rt.J19 were of manufacturing and §1,^73,201 of trad» ing- concerns; The aggregate liabill ties thus far reported in failures in.

Mr. Hannum is an 'old newspaper' niatf. lie was directed to go over into Arizona nud look into certain matters Indicated In a letter from ..the treasury dttjm-titteut. But the knowledge of it never canii! to the publlo until' a few 'evening? ago, when Mr. Ijannum's enjoyment,of the ludicrous overcame his modesty to such u degree that he related the story to a reporter for the 131 Paso Times. "Well, I got over to Nogtllcs," said he "and Iransaetod the business I was sent to look after, and was preparing to leave without nay dre-ain of becoming a marked man of tin; government service. But onn morning a fellow came to me and remarked in n most mysterious and confidential .'way that-he could 'put me <nto something.' Of cottrso, In my in- rocimco, I had no Idea what ho meant unless ho had s'»ir.e new and more deadly method of mixing drinks. But that interested me and I kindly allowed him tho UM>. of my car. Jerking his thumb tvor his shoulder toward the customhouse, ho hissed, 'Smuggled.' As he pointed exactly In tlie direction of tho custom-house I was surprised and shocked. Then I thought that in all probability ho was an ex-custom-house otllcor and wanted to got even with his successor. Hut on 'closer inquiry I found that lie was Intending to point not at tho custom-house, but at a brick store-house beyond." "What kind of goods do they smuggle?" I asked. " 'They don't smuggle goods,' he energetically declared, 'but the house was smuggled.' "To sav that I was interested Is putting It mildly. I kmrw at on :.u that if he was not a most: glorious liar I4iad a groat 'scoop,' and went in to examine tho subject. .The house he pointed out was a long brick and situated a fow doors from the custom house and. in the* same block. The idea of a man smuggling a brick house into this country, and that, too, under tho very nose of the customs collector, bogan to be very funny to mo, and I wont at It with a great deal of interest. I found that as a matter of fact the owner of the house hud been doing business in Mexico, Avhich was some ten or fifteen feet away, and that ho had concluded to move over under the waving folds of 'Old Glory.' He could not sell the house at a profit and did not care to build another so he simply tore it down and moved the whole outlit, goods and all, into tho United States. The goods wont through tho custom house all right, but tho second hand house was carried over without notice." "Well, I seized tlie house ami put It in tho hands of a newly appointed inspector that had heeir discovered on a ranch,'.and who was not familiar with the commercial terms. I told him to take care of the house, but not to interfere with the 'stock-.' When he came to rogort to me next morning he said that' the house was still there, but that he couldn't find any stock except three ducks and two pigs in the back yard. I collected tho duty on a whole house, and that Is all my fellow servants can accuse me of having done -wrong iu tho way of work that enumerates tho government." , MifflftfflB, • * ' *Ki JV1 f Controlling the i'Uo in BilllooninR— It Broke tlie DOJUT'M Pat Can-oil, the olil-tirnc sport nud handler of fighting (logs and chickens, tolls a story that may be truo and may not: "I had a dog at one time," said Pat, "that had a favorite hold. It was the winner of twenty-two lights, and in every instance ho would grab the left hind 'leg of his opponent and never loose his hold until the dog was beaten. His twenty-third fight, however, proved his Waterloo. I matched him against a dog that I had never seen, and when he was placed in the pit 1 noticed that he had only three legs, being minus his loft hind member. "I dropped my clog and encouraged him, and he immediately went for his usual hold. : Ho made two or three attempts to grab what was left, of the leg, and turned tail and came back toward me. I- did what I could to encourage him to £•••» on with the light, but he wouldn't budge an inch, and 'inally he .lumped the pit'and ran home, For. three days 1 tried to get him out of the house, but all he wanted to do was to lie down and moan. On tho fourth day he died, and I engaged a veterinary surgeon to dissect him, and he said tho dog died of a broken heart, caused by my having matched him against a dog that I had never seen and minus his left liintl log. The deception was too great on the dog, and I never made another witch after that, until 1 had seen what I was up against."—Philadelphia Call. It Is a lamentable fact that the majority of people speak badly find with com- rarntive difficulty, aiul it Is equally true that if they only knew how they ctuld enunciate well and easily. A well; known writer gives some valuable information on this subject itt an article In a daily paper. He shows that BO common ts this misuse of the vocal organs mat It frequently leads to chronic sore throat, The tongue is often accountable for the trouble. Many people have a habit, when talking, of pushing the tongue so far back against the delicate -muinlmmcs that Hue Ihc throat that irritation more or less painful is caused, and if it continues any length of time ulcers will form, and so will a doctor's hill., People who are thus afflicted, and for the matter 'of that, people who are not, should, at once set: about learning how to control their tongue, i. c.. how to correct the 'false and pernicious habits that It may have drifted into. The; organ should be depressed Into a. hollo w—before a looking-glass—at a point three-quarters of. an inch back of whore the tip of it comes when in a natural position In the mouth, and at. Hie same time siugihg very light head tones. The exercise requires some patience at first, but the habit of koepiug the tongue down is soon acquired. Many a hard-working vocal student, is a sufferer through not knowing this. He may have been work- Ing unsuccessfully for weeks in his attempt to produce better tone, simply because his tongue would not, let. him. In speaking or singing it should not be allowed to hoop up aid fill the mouth, thus interfering with the free passage of the tones of the voice from tho throat to the front of tho mouth, where Ihey should strike and then escape as clear as a bell. This hooping up of the tongue in the mouth is tho cause. of, much of the indistinct and slovenly utterance which is'gall and wormwood to the cultivated, ear. In many people the Hut! from the point °* tlie chin to the neck is in the form of a right angle. In a shapely throat this line forms a curve just as a canary's does when he is caroling. The process of turning this angle into a curve is well worth undertaking, as it involves a. fine development oif the throat and excellent, practice in tongue control. Stand before a mirror so (hat you _ may watch the throat swell out; now' thrust your tongue out. as far as it will go, then draw it back quickly and forcibly, at the same time bringing it downward in tho mouth as far as you can. Place the thumb and forefinger against the larynx (commonly called the Adam's apple), and.if you .are making the right movement you will feel tlie larynx pass 'downward. For a week or two make the movement lightly, after that..put as. much, force into, it as you can. • The exercise should' lie-practiced for a few minuter, several times a day to insure rapid and good results. . ha pnd i,he -whole condition of ife* as recalled. Part of the vdyafe be*6h m.tde In thick clouds highly at is to say, thundcf- the balloon, including tH6 rrtlve rtad become charged with elet£ tricity. The atmosphere was dry, nftd it had kept its charge on reaching the. ground. The lieutenant, however, bg- ing ih corttnct with the* earth, had produced a spark in pulling tlie cord to open ttip vatve. The subject has slhce- been followed up, and Dr. Bornstelii now shows by experiment that the safety valve of a balloon ia liable to become electrified, not merely tittder such conditions as those mentioned above, but also through the friction jf the cord on the balloon and the folding of the envelope on itself. Many precautions are MM for aeronauts, w&o In future will doubtless exercise great care in the construction and adjustment of the safety valve, avoiding ine^ tolllc parts and anything likely to produce nil electric spark. s41 nit?

Were it not. for the high reputation of the Itoyal Society of Great Britain the description of the last conversa- xiono of that august body might almost bo suspected of being a chapter from tho last emanation, of the fertile brain of M. Jules Verne, Electrical novelties were hardly so woll represented as in former years, but of purely scieatitie, exhibits there was an exceptional record. Of these one of the most remarkable was Mr. Henry Wild's magnutarlum a globe, apparently .of the ordinary geographical kind, but endowed with the sunus magnetic, properties as the. earth itself, so that a magnetic needle swung at any point on tho surface showed the- stiinti dip and declination as it would on the surface of the earth. This- apparatus excited tho wonder and admiration of the scientists. AVhon it is set in motion the changes of dip and variation which have been observed since tho sixteenth century are !UX!iiratc'ly reproduced on a small scale. This is ingeniously brought about by a skillful distribution of electric currents, one set flowing through insulated coils on the surface of the thin shell of the visible globe, and another set through similar coils on the outside of a slightly smaller sphere arranged inside' 'the first and caused' to rotate with its equator iu the plane of the ecliptic of the outer globe. There was a model to illustrate a method of overcoming by means of induction the difficulty of carrying an electric cable, on board an anchored and freely-swinging lightship, and a vibromotor, by means of which tho energy which in most; machinery is expended in .producing vibrations may bo diverted to do useful work and enable machinery to run smoothly, There were several appliances illustrating the now developments in oluc- trjo furjniocs and others for recording the onormous .degree of hoat which can bo obtained by tho methods of Oroniptou, Moissan and others. Prof. Roberts-Austin exhibited ti thermoelectric- pyrometer which, by recording variations of temperature in ink on a band of paper, has revealed some hitherto unsuspc9ted facts of much Indus- triul Importance as regards blast furnaces. Trying to Revolutionize A shrewd attempt to steal a march- on. nature is now being made by agriculturists, which, if successful, niajr bring about a revolution in farming practice. The point which there is just now 'much striving to elucidate Is whether the excresencos which naturally form on tho roots of clover, pens and other lo^uinin^tM plants, and which enable such plants to decompose the atmosphere ami use its nitrogen, may not; be also made to grow on corn, oats and other plants of the grass family. If this can be accomplished it will be possible to make corn, oats find wheat renovating crops, as clover and peas now arc. The process of experimenting is to inoculate corn and oat roots .with the bacteria taken from the warts on the roots of clover. This is si ticklish process, as the bacteria from clover have most conservative habits, and die outright If they are transferred suddenly to an entirely different kind of plant. So they are cultivated. at first, iii a. culture media, only a portion of which consists of watery solutions of clover. So far the experiments have entirely failed on oats. but they have been partly successful on the roots of Indian com. Tho com plants whose roots were inoculated were slightly more thrifty and had more line-roots. It was. .bacteria from a corn extract that was tried upon oats; it is possible that if an oat extract had been used a better result might] have followed. If individual plants of corn or other grains con in this way be given tho power of appropriating .atmospheric nitrogen, and tlie necessary modification hi their nature can be continued in plants grown from their seed, one of the most important discoveries of modem times will have been reached. It will mean a thorough revolution in farming. Fannu's will- no Idiigcr need nitrogenous manures, or even clover as a nitrogen catching crop, but will be obliged to furnish only the mineral elements of crops, leaving science and nature to supply till else required. Wonderful IVigUt Photosrirpli jr. During the world's fair at Chlcago- ; several attemrttS'.wereTiriitae ' to' s.ecure night photogrtiphs 6f 'tlie oieRtric^'feJift- ing effects by means of their own light, and t3ie light was surprisingly beautiful, especially in pictures of tho electrici -fountains and of buildings or statuary under the search light. Encouraged by the success obtained, one of tlie leading- photographers of San Francisco has made further efforts at tlie midwinter fair, and tho views thus •sacured are triumphs of the photographic art. Some of them are so clear that it seems incredible 11mt they wero taken at night until tho method is explained. While tho building or object is being taken, tho beam of a strong search light is continually swept to and fro across it, and it thus comes up gradually on the negative, tlie darkness'be- ing, literally washed away by the flood of light. This process can be arrested tit any stage, or the ; beam can-'bo fo- cussed on any special features, so that extremely novel and picturesque effects are obtainable. In some of tho plioco- Kraphs arc lights are seen burning brilliantly in front of the buildings, and the interiors are at the same time Bhovvn to bo brightly Illuminated, yet the edifice itself is bold and strong in every outline, as though under a mid-' day sun. The appearance has been cleverly described as that of a building in which a lot of liffht had been caught in tho daytime and there boxed Up for use at night. Further work is to be<lone> in this direction, and artistic photography has thus had a now Held opened up.
