It was decided Unit President Talley of the Operators and Purcell, the new president of the miners' organization, (should act lib a board of arbitration to settle disputes and grievances. In Ihe event that the board can not settle the •' grievati-oe -it-shall . have the tight io appeal to the state board of arbitration, which shall consist of the eXt cutive board of operators and the executive board of miners of the state, unlfibB the two parties in the c'aso ugiee to leave the matter of grievance to a third person, to be selected by both presidents, whose -notion shall be final, and work shall ,be continued until grievances are settled. PRINCETON, 111., July 23.— S. M. Dnl- zell, fitneral iiianiiger of the Spring Valley Coal compuny, hns solicited Sheriff Cox to deputize the employes of the coal compuny, as he believes the i roperty to Le in danger.

The brotherhood men say that of the new men a number are biother- ,l)Dod ujen; and that ior the .latter to displace them is contrary to the laws 'Of the organization. CI.EVI I;AKD, Ohio, July 23.— Chief Arthur said in reference to the Wabash engineer being "hung up:'' "Uhe engineers on the Wabash struck out of syuifaVhy for the American K,iihvay Unu-n, without the sanction and in clear violation of the laws of the Uiotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. As 1 have repeatedly stated of Ja e undi-r these conditions any member uf our order has the full right to take a place va^att-d by a btriking engineer." Switchmen's Annie, utlon Dins' Iveu. CHICAGO, July 23. — The Switchmen's Mutual Aid association of Korth America is dead and the, 30,000 switchmen of the United Mates are entirely without a class organization. Many of them HIM members of the American Railway Union and the Knights of Labor, but as a 1 distinct branch of railway service they are without a separate organiz'it on. The effect on the present strike, it is believed by many, will be beneficial. The officials of the Switchmen's association were not friendly to the »trike and efforts were constantly being made by the railroad*, SD ii is said, to make it appear to loyal members of the organization that they could go bacic to work without being untrue to unicu principles. , _ DlHtnrliuucn at I'ullrunn.

No boll is provided, ns the sound of the voice Is said to lio loud enough to warn every one that, there is a summons to the Instrument. It is claimed that for railway compiinies, ships, factories, anil any place wticrc noiso is inceswuit, this telephone, will be more than ordinarily valuable, as "Its loiidness Is simply wonderful, ant! this latest development will create a real sensation." Where the advantage of this surplus uoisn, lies is not exactly clear, and tho greatest rocomiiiemlnUon that this loml- speaking telephone seems to possess is a receiver to be held to the car, which can be sitbsttinted by 1hoso who object to the excessive noise, or the fact that the conversation of the person at the other end of tho lino is being given a wider publicity than is altogether desirable. This Is eminently the year of telephones, and almost every day brings forth a new Instrument, that Is reputed to eclipse everything that has g'one before. The largo majority of those are simply tho embodiments of a pot but Impracticable idea of the inventor; very few reach commercial efficiency, and still fewer are ever out on the market., One device, however, hooins to have grown quickly Into public favor. This is fin Instrument which dispenses with switchboards, operators and plugs, and enables the head cf a raugo of offices a factory or any other business building to be in instant, telephonic communication with all or any of his departments by pressing a button on a little call box on the desk close to his hand. A special carbon tr insmitter is used, and the service is so perfect that talking entails no effort, arid a conversation can be carrier! on in so low it tone as to be inaudible to a person on tho other side of the room. In this Instrument the hciirht of simplicity and ease of. operation appears to have been reached. Pl(03«osrr«l>li ns «• Promoter, When one of the Australian squadron was patrolling the South seas lately, she came up with n sailing vessel, and one of her officers boarded' the stranger. She proved to bo a colonial craft, engaged in recruiting Kanakas for the Queensland plantations. On board the uaval officer noticed a phonograph. Ho was told that before tho vessel left Queensland, the captain visited Borne of the sugar plantations where South Sea Islanders sire employed. Ho took a camera and a phonograph; and then he went into the business o£ photographing groups of natives on tho plantations, also Inking Individual pictures of well known natives from tho New Hebrides, and others from the Solomon group. Edison's invention was then brought into service, the best known of the natives, especially those •\vlio have relatives aiKl friends in tho islands, being asked, to speak Into the phonograph anything they would like to tell their friends. Largo numbers of these phouograplunl letters were procured, giving accounts of what sort of lit'< the Kanakas wore having' on the plantations ntul any -other news that: would interest the "old folks at home" at Mnllieollo, Ambryni, San Cluislotnl, Mnlaita and oilier islands. Afk'i 1 securing a jjood supply tho ingenious shipmaster .sall-Hl for th.j islands, and, when last: sco-i, was', nstoii- ishlng the natives. Many of tho g'uphs he had transf.'rrod to glass 1'or nse with the llino-lighf, and with the jiholograplis ami the phonograph he \viis in a position to ^ive su.:h an ocular exhibition of life on a plau'.alion that fairly changed tho uatlvo doubts Into .'ui'enllnis'uislie desire to emigrate. Nor was this all. At the lime-light show he would produce a fnlKsi'/;<:<l picture; of an upsont friend, a native who was well known in the island in which the shipmaster happened to !><>, and to tho anui/.mnent of his dusky audience would mnko him speak words of greeting from Ills plantation home in Bun- dalH-rg -1,000 miles away. If any misgivings were felt before tho phonograph was produced that be- M'Ux-hed machine dispelled them by making the llmo-liyht figure of thoir t'rlfiul address tlio natives in their own tongue, and In Ihe sumo voice they knew so well when he dwelt among thorn. Needless to say, the phonograph has proved a valuable recruiting accessory .—Sydney Mall, From lialloona. Military authorities have long recognized that there is yet much to be dono in the field of signaling from balloons by means of tho electric light. Hitherto night signaling 1ms been carried on at a great disadvantage from the fact that the ordinary lanterns carried by the signaling corps when on foot are often visible at a comparatively short distance, and even more frequently rendered of no avail by the intervention of various obstructions, such as trees, buildings or rising ground. It was at one time sought to overcome those objections by utilizing the clouds for reflecting flashes of light, which should be short or long according to u prearranged, code, aud in this way transmit any desired message. Thjs plan, however, presented two obvious disadvantages; }t could be used only when clouds were present In the atmosphere, aud should the clouds uwuy before the completion of 3 message the receiving pni'ty would be nuzzled, if not entirely misled- It was at length seen that balloon signaling all the requirements of tlie night trans mission of messages in time Q| \VIJF jjioro saUsfnetorily tlxag ' and vArious mission. One o^ the grentest. 8o1ire« of the trouble had been the dlfflculty sf procuring lamps -with carbons sufficiently fine to prevent the aftef-glow interfering with the distinctness of the several flashes, but In the Bruce»-tne form cf balloon adopted by the British and other governments—tills has bePn removed. In this latest method n n-am- bor of! incftndesctnt lumps nre suspended Inside a captive ballooi. of comparatively small sifce, having a semi-transparent envelope of cambric. It has a {liamotef of 18 feet, iinrl a gas capacity of 3,200 feet. The lamp-holder Is made in the shape of a ladder, so that it can bo easily admitted into the nnrrrtw mouth of the balloon. It contains six Ininps of sixteen candle-power, spec-hilly constructed for the purpose, tho carbons being finer iind the bulbs more spherical in form thnli is usual. The current can be supplied through Insulated cables from secondary batteries, but should these be found toe heavy for transport, a sm.tli dynamo can be used, Which can bo drlvr-n, if no other power should be at hand, by manual labor. Ttie keyboard, which is on the ground tinder the control of nn operator, contains everything necessary for the Hashing of signals, and the equipment Includes not, valve-top, hose for fllllng, sand-bags, and a special ventilated case for sea transport, a car being entirely dispensed with. The valufr of such a means of signaling in time of war may be gathered from the fact that In a recent test tho signals were discerned easily at a distance of upwards of sixteen milos. Klccti'ntrnplni:!. Kloctrotherapeutists are familiar with the fact that the effect of the electric current varies according to tlie "pole" from which It Hows. The poles of the battery are termed respectively the anode nud tho cathode. Current, from the anode is soothing and sedative, while that from tho cathode is exciting. The anode corresponds to the positive terminal, the cathode to the negative. It hns been known for some time that certain animals living in wa- t«r are affected in thoir position and iu the direction of their movements by n constant electric current, but it is only recently that the subject has been systematically investigated. A number of observations have boon collected by. E. Blasius and V. Swcizer concerning this phenomenon of "electrotropism" and\ its exhibition in animals permanently or occasionally inhabiting water. The experiments made showed that with a current of 108 volts, w)' n u the head of a. fish was turned toward the anode, calmness or even stupefaction ensued, v-hilo, when this position was reversed, tho fish became excited, tried to evade tho stimulating effect, aud promptly turned around in order to again enjoy the tranquilisiing effect of tho anode current. The curious fact was also observed that llshes, if transversely traversed by t>o current.exhi- bit symptoms analogous to those which oncur in man in transverse galvanization of the head, as they always sink on the side turned toward the anode. In determining the therapeutic effect ,of currents from various sources, it was ascertained that tho current from a storage battery gnve tho same results as one of n. corresponding strength from it dynamo. A "Miiioeiilnr" Camera. 'A'hother camera has been added to the list of those constructed after the form of a field glass. The new camera is actually a small Held glass, and yet it contains a complete photographic apparatus, consisting c-f a rapid rectilinear lens and instantaneous shutter, and a dozen of prepared dry plates or 30 films. It has also a finder or sighting glass, which permits of the exact size and appearance of tho proposed picture being seen at the time of tho pressing of the button. The sizo of the plate taken is about 1 1-2 by 1 '!-4 inches. The plates are automatically and quickly changed by pulling out a smnll rod at tho side of the camera, and as the shutter is also arranged to give time exposures, the instrument can be used for homo portraits in ordinary rooms, as well as for taking pictures of moving objects in a good light and general outdoor work. As the "binocular" is Held to the eyes whilst tho picture Is being taken the photograph exactly represents the view as soon by a person of ordinary stature, instead of as seen from a height of only some 8. foot above the ground. It is claimed for this instrument that its operator need know nothing of photography to get he best results from it; that it gives exact perspective; that single exposures ciiii be taken out and developed Independently of the bulk; that it is lit ted with a safety shutter that keeps all light from the plate except at the moment of exposure; that tho Under shows tho picture with reversal and in any light; that the camera can bo emptied and refilled in a few minutes; and, that when used In conjunction with a special enlarging apparatus, it is equivalent to ah ordinary camera carrying twelve plates or thirty lilms 7x5 inches' in size. Hovr tlie Kyes of the Typewriter Can lie Saved, An eminent oculist says that typewriting has an injurious effect on the eyes. The operator is obliged to glance incessantly back and forth from the keyboard to the shorthand notes, and this is a muscular exercise of the most fatiguing sort. The oculist urges all typewriters to strive to become so familiar with the keys of their instrument that they shall be able to write without looking at the keyboard, with just the same certainty that the piun- Ist feels when he is looking at the ran- slo score and letting his fingers take care of themselves. This is ft hint well worth taking, and there is no great difficulty about It. '*To the copyist four hours of eight are saved the >vorlc rendered pleasant and easy, tne eyesight, whlph would be severely taxed by changing from the keyboard to the manuscript In finding the place, is preserved and accuracy is secured.

The ancients regarded tho butterfly as so perfect an emblem of the soul that in Greece the word "Psyche," which properly in^-ans the human ROU! was also iised to signify a butterfly. Our young girls, than, determined that these "Hying flowers" should be the'prouiinent feature of . their'little fete. In the center of the table, above a low roun.1 basket filled with growing hyacinths, wh t2, pink, lilac and yellow, eight or tsn little butterflies were apparently hovering or lightly poised, on the blossoms. Made of Japanese papei'. some white, some yellow, and about two inches across the outspread wings, they i-epresentsd the most common species found in this country, familiarly seen fluttering in couples, "twin souls," in our lanes an.l byways. Attached to tiny spiral wires concealed among the flower.?, they had the tremulous motion that simulated life. A wide pale yellow satin ribbon was tied around the basket. The candle shades ware of white crimped paper, with largj yellow butterflies surrounding them; the wingv;, just meeting at the tips, were marked with fantastic designs and the liltls nervures slightly traesd like the veining of a leaf. It needs but the most superficial skill in water color painting to decorate their wings, and ovary public library can furnish colored plates that use easily eopieJ.

Occasionally in his mountain honiB the ameer of Cabul has met ladies of refinement, and the despot has not been slow to ob:se/'v« with delight tho easy and graceful manners of the fair ones from the Occident, His mnjesty some month; ago conceived the i lea of educating the ladies of his harem in European manners, and with this enil in view asked an 'English officer to find him a '•governess" possessed of tlu necei- sai-y accomplishments. The officer expressed duubts as to the possibility of finding any lady willing to take the risk, upon which the ameer assured him that his royal protection would bo extended to the visitor, and that in addition she could name her own salary. With this assurance the offic2r mentioned the subject to some friends on his return to Calcutta, and a young Englishwoman namecl Hamilton accepted tha. place. Miss Hamilton sings, plays anil paints with markej ability, and is in all ways just the sort of woman the ameer wants. In addition she has a good general knowledge of medicine, having given considerable study to that scienca, and although ability as a physician was not specified as among the necessities there is no doubt the ura-aer will be doubly glad to have a European doctor in his palace.

Teach them habits of order and neatness just as soon as they ara old enough to be taught anything, an! many needless steps w.ll-bi- saved. It seems perfectly natural for the average child to toss<lown combs, book?, towels, papers, soiled apron i an.I dozens of other articles where they were last used, an.l then to turn them all over when a needa.1 article is wanted that cannot ba found in its place.
