It IB said that at'present over ttfty kinds of bark are used. Among the incongruous substtuicea which have been used for pulp may be mentioned banana skins, bean stalks pea vines, clover, timothy hay, straw weeds, hair, fur, wool, asbestos and husks of every kind of grain. Leaves make strong paper and nearly every kind of moss can be utilized. There are patents for making paper from shavings and sawdust, from thistles and tan bark. Nothing comes amiss to the paper- maker, although vegetable fiber is tho nearest ideal material. By way of experiment the proprietors of a newn-. paper recently undertook to find the length of time necessary to make the paper and put it to use. A poplar tree .was selected and to chop, strip and load on a boat took three hours; manufacturing the pulp, twelve hours; making tho 'pulp into paper, five hours; taking 1 tho 'paper to the newspaper office, eighty minutes, and to print 10,000 copies of the paper ten minutes, makiug'a total of twenty-two hours. fci»ari<fter ol th* M. feflfctiSft. Ffotti tbe Indianapolis Sentinel: ose who felfaember the failure t the ftitzinger bank in this city will recall the nervous fever of mistrust which went abroad in the community and •which within a brief space of tiiae after that bank closed its doors led to an incipient run on the Fletchers' bank, which movement momentarily grew in proportion until early one morning a line of depositors reaching nearly from the latter banking institution to Meridian street was waiting for the Fletchers to open their doors to begin the presentation of checks and the demand tot deposits. It was then that the sturdy character of Mr, English asserted itself; it was at that momentous hour that he proved himself equal to a trying emef-* gency. On his way to his own bank he noticed the knots of men gathered in the vicinity of Fletchers' bank and saw the line forming toward the entrance. There were business men in the line who knew Mr. English well and there was not one who did not know that his word was as good as his bond. Without a moment's hesitation he forced his rugged form through the crowd and stationing himself at the very doors of the Fletchers' bank began the self-imposed duty of stopping that sen-iless run. As fast as men could co • to the door he would ank them if they had doubts of the safety of their deposits with the Fletchers. He gave them assurance that there was not at that time a more thoroughly solvent banking Institution in all the state of Indiana than tho bank upon which they were precipitating a run without reason, and to each Individual he said: "If you think your money Is likely to be lost let me endorse that check and then take it to my bank. I will take all of that kind of paper that can be brought to me." Within the hour William H. English thus soothed the anxieties of tl depositors and when the word wom. out that he had given his assurance that the bank was .safe men went to their places of business or labor and a perfect quiet was restored. His name . had been placed on nearly $30,000 of the paper of nervous depositors of the Fletcher bank. frovel Ontehft Wotld-Hei-ftia still The last at* elosett Fetetiaty first the forizes hare been awftfde'd.

An; interesting fact in connection with the famous Schomburgk line, which has escaped observation, is that the man who provided the British government with that boundary came to this country from Germany when he was 21 years old and after working for some time as a cleric in Boston and Philadelphia became a partner in a' Richmond (Va.) tobacco manufactory in 1828. The factory was burned and Schom- burgk drifted to the West Indies, where after unsuccessful ventures his bptanical works attracted the attention of the London Geographical society, and he secured means to explore the unknown region of the Orinoco, where he traveled from 1833 to 1839, and discovered the Victoria Regina lily and numerous other plants. This work led the British government to commission him to suggest a boundary between Venezuela and Guiana and to make further explorations. The lino was drawn and he was knighted by the queen for his services. Schomburgk until his death, in 1865, continued in the British consular service, but devoted himself chiefly to geographical studies, being a member of the principal American and European learned societies, Mrs, William Allen, of Pilot View, Ky., celebrated her eightieth birthday the other day by completing the cutting of her third f ull set of teeth.
