' PjsoniA, 111., Sept. 10.—Vice-Presi- :<Jent Beggs of the whisky trust said there was nothing whatever to the 'report that application was to be made for the appointment of a receiver for .the trust. John Stevens, 'attorney for the trust, said the information given him by newspaper men was the first he had heard of the rumor of a receiver for the trust Mr. Stevens was asked concerning a meeting of the directors of the trust to be held to-day and said to his knowledge there was not to be one. He had not teen informed and certainly there would be no meeting until after the arrival of Mr. Greenhut, which would not be until next week.

While waiting tot the report many interesting papers were read. Judge Emery oi Kansas advocated small farms and storage reservoirs and an irrigation survey for the purpose of discovering and distributing the water of the country for irrigation put-poses. The congress took a recess Until 2 o'clock. The'cotnmittee on resolutions presented its report immediately on reassembling. It consisted of a majority and minority report, and* an address to the American people. The resolutions Were discussed until 11 o'clock ao night, without any vote having been taken. It is probable the majority report will be adopted. THE CONKLING MYSTERY. Detectives nt Work on the Case—Big lie ward Offered. EijEHAitT, Ind. SeptlO.—The developments in the disappearance of .Dr. A. B. Conkling of Cassopolis, Mich., have added more evidence of a conspiracy to murder him. Tuesday night he was lured from his homo to his death. The best detective in the state is at work on the case and as the mystery deepens public interest increases. It came out yesterday that Dr. Conkliug was a leading witness in an action brought for irregular practice against a fellow practioner and this fact is hinted at as being closely allied with the conspiracy. Dr. Conkling was vigorous in his denudation of his fellow physician's crime, and his testimony, it is said, would have been convicting. A reward of $2,000 is now offered for a solution of the mysterious crime. Union T'ncHlc Wages Decision. PORTLAND, Ora, Sept 10.—In the Oregon Railway and Navigation wage schedule in the United States court Judge Bellinger yesterday rendered an important decision on a question in point, the exact reverse of a decision rendered by Judge Caldwell in the Union Pacific wage schedule in the United States court at Omaha. Judge Bellinger upholds the authority of the receiver to make any change he may think proper without an order from the court. Will Not Pny the Prill J'rlr.e. WASHINGTON, Sept 10. — The local executive committee of the 1C of P. encampment has decided not to pay the §500 drill prize awarded to the first Indianapolis battalion, Col.

Just two little pieces of -wood nM ft fetick of graphite and yon have that Which is found in the hands of every one from the bootblack, who keeps a 'tally on his shines," to the man Who has no mote fatiguing labor to perform than clipping coupons off government bonds. It may be because of this universal use or because it is such a simple, innocent-looking article ns to fail to excite Investigation, but it is, nevertheless, a fact that not one in a hundred of those who find a constant use for it knows how a lead pencil is made, says the Chicago Tribune. There is a popular impression that lead is one of the component parts, but StrnisrhteniiiR the IMs lead proves to be graphite, dug from the earth separated from impurities and graded and mixed according to the degree of perfection desired and the uses to which it is to bo put. But a small per cent of that mined can be used for pencils, the rest is converted into crucibles, paint, lubricants and the bane of the housemaid's existence stove polish. The first graphite mtue worked to any extent was the one discovered at Borrowdale, Cumberland, England, In 15U4. It was not what would be considered a rich find in this day, but as the opening of a new industry It was so highly prized and was so closely maintained as a monopoly that in pursuance to an act of parliament the mouth of the mine was constantly guarded by an armed force. Later this precaution was supplemented by limiting the period of work to six weeks per year, and flooding the entrance with water to prevent invasion while standing idle. Preparing: Graphite. The process of preparing graphite for pencils at this time was.the simple one of sawing it into strips and placing it in the wood. No previous mixing or grading was done. The impurities -it contained took the place of the clay with which it is now mixed, and there was no doubt enough gritty substance in it to make it hard without baking. It was not until other mines were'dis- covered, thus furnishing competition, that any improvement was made in this method. Then repeated experiments gradually led to the manufacture of pencils of uniform hardness and tolerable reliability. The only graphite mine of any consequence in America, is located at Ticonderoga, N. Y., and owned by the Dixon Crucible Company. It resembles in a great many particulars an anthracite coal mine, though the workings are much deeper, some of them being 3.50 feet below the surface. The graphite runs in nearly vertical veins, inclosed in rock, and when raised to the surface, it contains 50 to SO per cent of the silica, sulphur, and other impurities, The first process through which it is put is to free it from this foreign matter. This is done- by pulverizing it under water, the particles being carried by the current through a series of tanks. That intended for pencils has by this process been reduced to impalpable lusterless powder, finer than flour, which can be taken in the hand much the same as water and retained as easily. After the graphite reaches this stage the real pencllmaking begins, and this same powder, which is so fine that a pinch of it cannot be held between the linger and thumb, is treated to a second process, which further reduces it. Sufliclent water is added to cause it to nin very freely and then it is turned The into a hoppw, from which it flows through n series of four tubes, The coarsest a»d heaviest particles setjle in. tne bott9«j of the first tub, the next cparsest In the second, and BO on to toe last, by wMcfi, tim e the powder has all settled a»4 the Uquid. runs off dear.

Water 1 Is added tmtll the combination is about the consistency of cream, and the tti*« ttirc put through the grinding mill in much the sahie manner as paint, for the finest pencils as many as twenty times, thus insuring thd most perfect strength, uniformity, and fr-jeiicss from grit in the leads. Prom the grinding mills it is put in stout canvas bags and the water forced out by hydraulic pressure until the mass becomes as thick as dough, and in this condition it goes to the forming press, '-tills machine is simply a small vertical iroli cylinder, having a piston driven by a screw. A plate is inserted in the bottom having an opening the size and shape of the lead desired, through which the dough-like combination is forced, curling round and round like a coil of rope and falling Under a wooden tray. At intervals this tray is removed and the lead straightened out and cut into lengths sufficient for three pencils. The handling must be done expedittously, as the lead dries quickly, ahd where it could formerly be tied into loose knots if taken fresh, when exposed to the air for a little time it crumbles almost with a touch. After the leads are cut into lengths they are put into crucibles and baked in a kiln, from which they emerge ready for the wood case. For the cheapest pencils pine is used, for the common grades an ordinary quality of red cedar, and for all standard grades the Florida Keys cedar. This latter wood is both soft and close- grained, and is considered so superior for the purpose that even the European manufacturers are obliged to ship it from Florida. In the mills at Tampa the wood is shaped into pieces seven inches long, three and a half inches wide and three- sixteenths of an inch thick. Each strip is wide enough to make the halves of six pencils, and in this shape, trimmed of all superfluous wood to avoid freight charges, they are sent to the main factory, where they are fed into a machine which cuts six grooves for the leads and at the same time smooths the face of the wood. Filling the leads, as it is called, is done by girl's sitting at bi-ass-covered tables. The first takes a grooved slip with the left hand and a bunch of leads with the right, and spreading them out in her fingers like the sticks of a fan, lays them in the grooves and passes ihe filled slips to the girl at the left, who puts over it another slip, which has just received a coat of glue from a brush wielded by a third. In an incredibly short time a stock of filled slips have been glued together and are ready for the press, where they remain until thoroughly dry- On removing from the press the rough ends and projecting leads are ground smooth by placing them against a wheel covered with sandpiper, anA they are then ready for the most interesting and characteristic process of all —that of separating and shaping. The foreign makers formerly persisted in making each pencil separate, and BTS1I1M The Counting Board. at one time did all the shaping by linnd, after which the work was smoothed by sandpaper. This may have been a quick enough process in early days, but some thing more rapid had to be devised to provide the Americans with the enormous quantities of pencils used every day. Tho slips, which are six pencils in one piece are fed one by one under a revolving cutter, which shapes them on one side by cutting away the superfluous Avood. As they come out they are automatically turned over and passed under a second cutter. Tho little revolving knives make a succession of little gouges in the wood, but following one another so closely that they le^ye the sprface not only true, but so smooth that the finest sandpaper would deface it, and as they fall into the bosket six abreast they are finished pencils in point of utility, and are ready to be sharpened. Joseph Dlxon, tlie father of the graphite Industry in America, made Jlis first pencils in 1830 in the ancient to\yn of Salem, They were finished by hand, and one of his first dozen is still preserved by his successors, They we gritty In the lead, unevenly shaped anfl the letter "a" in the word Salem has been omitted through a typographical error. lie tried to dispose of them in Boston, but the dealers refusud to handle anything in that line which did not bear a, foreign label, and this so enraged him that he gave up the idea and confined himself exclusively to crucibles. In 1873 the company made a moro successful attempt, and the yepreseut> atlve plant of this industry in Amer, j),cft now employs over 000 people, turns on^ 8,000 gross of finished, pencils per day, and makes upward of 500 varieties, Firnt Fo«a Mother }n.g ts give yQur Jittle 4&y?

Did you ever "strike" a floundef? Probably nbt, unless you have lived or passed some time on the coast of the Souther ,1 sta^ea One lovely August evening, just before sunset, as I stood on the back porch of our summer home on the coast of South Carolina. 1 noticed that our boy Bob seemed to be very busy over a boat at the little wharf ooly a short distance trom the houso and as J stood there watching him the mystery was explained. Noticing that I was hatching him with a good deal of interest, he came up to the steps and, removing the tattered rim of what was once a felt hat; said: "Boss, 1'ze goln' 'strikin" flounder to-night. Like to efo 'long?" After having finished supper and enjoyed a cigar and a stroll on the beach, watching the bathers in and spying a distant sail on the horizon, I p-oceoded to dross for the occasion. Taking Bob's advice, I selected an old pair of baso ball shoes, an ancient pair of cadet trousers that had stood the teat of many a dress parade (a relic of my "rat" year), a cap of the same description and a flannel shirt and a heavy coat, for it was cool on tho water after sunset, even in midsummer, not forgetting to take a good supply of tobacco and a pine to keep off the gnats and sand flies, and a plug of chewing tobacco for my companion. I joined Bob at the back door, and we made our way down to the landing. Here we found a large flat- bottomed scow, on one side of which was fixed an old grate, in which a fire was burning fiercely, while at the other end was a huge pile of dry oak with plenty of fat pine for kindling. Standing in the boat was a colored boy of about the same size and blackness of my attendant, whom Bob designated to me as "my mammy's sister Sally's boy Kufe." Bob stood at the bow, Rufus at the stern with a pole, while I was invited to take the middle seat near the fire and requested to keep the boat clear of water, which as soon as .W3 began our journey rushed through the many crevices with astonishing rapidity. The night was very dark, but lighted by our fire we began to follow the shore and our flat bottom enabled us to keep in very close, says a Philadelphia Times writer. And now came to me what was tKe strangest part of the proceeding. Bob, standing as I have said, in the bow, armed with a striking pole, which is simply a'heavy rod about eight feet long, with a two-pronged fork at one end, kept his eyes fixed on the water, which was brightly lit up tor several feet in front of the boat, while he held the 'pole raised in his right hand. All at once, and without a word, he suddenly thrust the pole into the water in front of him and with a chuckle of triumph, clashed the pole into tho bottom of the boat, and struggling and splashing around was a dark, flat object about a foot long, with two great gaping wounds made by the prongs of the fork. The flounder was exactly the color of the bottom of the water and very flat, and how on earth anybody, even a hungry negro, could distinguish it* with the boat going at a pretty rapid rate was something I could not make out and have never been able to fathom. To bo sure the water was quite shallow, ranging in depth from one to two and a half, feet, and the light from the fire was very bright,, but when you take into consideration the fact that the soil was almost black and very muddy and soft and that the fish almost bury themselves therein, it will be seen that it requires no small amount of skill and quickness to detect the flounder with the boat being rapidly poled along. And I never saw Bob miss. It would be natural to suppose that the "striker" would occasionally mistake some object for a flounder in waters that teemed with all kinds of fish, or that sometimes he would fail to secure the fish, even if he struck correctly, for it is a known fact that "the biggost fish I ever caught was the one thafc got away," no, I never knew Bob or any of the other many negroes whom I alterwards saw out • •striking" to be guilty of failure. Sometimes tho flounder would be pierced by only one prong instead of two, and sometimes the wound be very near the side of the fish, but secure him they always did. The truth is that the negroes, and occasionally some of the "poor white trash," who Uvo on or near th,° coast in that part of the state, sometimes depend very largely upon the sea for tbeir support, especially when the orope have boon a failure, and a pretty good living they make out of It, fisli of all kinds in abundance, pystepg and ola/ms tQ ba had IQV the poking up, wtyle ora,l?9 and shrimps are very QomujQn, So that the y$un.g negroes, accustomed to such, pursuits from their infancy, early beppm^ experts.

"1 am a sworn enemy to everything of a snaky nature, Whether t find i^ih human beings or reptiles*"" said Colonel fi. C. Shaw, Of London, an ex-officer in the British} afmy* "Curing my active service iti tho* army I was stationed for a time in British Guiana, and while there had an experience with a snake that wa» startling enough to suit the most adventurous mind, t used to amuse myself a good deal by fishinef in the neighboring river. One sultry afternoon, tired out with unsuccessful sport, I drew my canoe to a shady spot on the river bank, and stretching myself in the bottom, with my gun at my side, soon fell asleep. I was Soon aroused, from my slumber- by a curious sensation, as though, some animal was licking my foot. I glanced down, and, to my horror,, saw tho head and neck of a huge- serpent, which was covering my feet with saliva, preparing, I suppose, to swallow me whole. "li'or an instant I was completely paralyzed with fear and horror and. a terrible death seemed imminent, but by a superhuman effort I regained control of my faculties, and jerking my feet away siezed my gun and quick as a flash fired a load of buckshot into the snake's head. The- boa, with a terrible hiss, raised its. huge body and thrashed around at a. great rate, as if determined in it's. death throes to throw its coil* around me, but grasping the paddle I placed tho canoe out of harm's way by a single stroke. The snake still continued to writhe around, half oE its immense body in the water anol the other half on the bank. I fired another charge ini/o his head, whioh. put an effectual end to its struggles. Tho reptile measured forty feet in, length and was as big around as a man's body." Swinging Arms In'Walking. Many people waste a great deal of their strength by swinging their- arras backward and forward all the- time while walking. It is a curious, fact that the practice is followed by one of the sexes much more than it- is by the other. An observer has- taken notes upon this subject After- standing for a good while at the corner of Broadway and Fourteenth, street he was able to allege that nearly sixty men in every 100, and only twelve women in every 100.. swing their arms when walking. Most of them move the right -arm with the left, leg and the left arm with the right leg. A man wh» gave up the habit for a time returned to it, for the reason that it; seemed to help him to walk rapidly. —New York Sun. Heady for Anything.
