Bohemn to Increase too Postal Facilities of Washlncfton. If (Successful It Will Bo Introduced In Other Clcto*—Plan J» to U»ve it Con- tluuuun Mall Collection In Bumncwii District*. Gen. Xeilson, second assistant postmaster-general, ha;, a scheme which he will put into active practice wJthJn the next 00 days, adding very materially to Washington's postal facilities. It is a new kind of wagon collection, intended to obviate delays and to meet the oc- easionul difficulties that now present themsch-cs at the city post office. If the experiment works satisfactorily, as it is believed it -will, the department will introduce it elsewhere. A wag-on especially constructed for the purpose is now being 1 built at. Hartford, Conn. It will be large enough to accommodate n carrier, independent of the assistant, who will do the driving and tnke the mail from the street boxes. This wagon will be put on nt on early hour in the morning; and kept on Its rounds until after midnight. Every box in the business centers and other populous districts will be visited, one itfter the other, the territory assigned to the wag-on being gone over continuously, a new trip being 1 commenced as soon as the orig-inal starting 1 point is reached. The carrier in charge will sort tho mail, ranking- up distributions for nil trains. The out-of-town mail will be pouched and delivered to tho proper railroad station. Other pouches will be mnclc up for the various substations, where carriers are assigned for tho city post offices. In this way Gen. Jfcilson expects to reduce U> a minimum the time between the receipt of n letter-by the government nml its delivery. He says any letter then dropped in any box on the route of this wagon will be sure of getting abonrd the first mnil train out of the city, t.hus saving 1 delays that frequently occur by the dropping of letters in boxes jusf after a collection has been mode-find nn hour or two before another is due. By pouching- the city mail loss of time at the main or branch offices is overcome, owing 1 to the fact that this mail reaches the office sooner than it otherwise would ond comes in sorted and ready for immediate distribution. He has great hopes for the future of this continuous collection, and •will watch its development in Washington with careful attention. SUCCESSFUL USE OF X RAYS. Bnllflt Located Aftor Failure! to .Find It by frolilae Proem*. By means of the X rays physicians nt the Army Medical museum in Washington have located a bullet that had been lodged in the thigh of a young womau for eight months. The light had to penetrate one of the thickest and most 'muscular portions of the body. The patient was a girl who was accidentally shot by her. brother at Falls Church,-Va. The shot was.o 33-caliber bullet and it entered the left groin. Every movement was attended with the most,excrueiating pain. Four or .five doctors probed for the bullet, but unsuccessfully.' Dry'Gray, of the Army Medical'museum, consented to use the X fays in the case, and the girl wa's accordingly, taken to the museum, :where the limb was exposed to : the light-for over an hour without apparent result. Meanwhile Dr. Gray perfected his.ap- paratus and then asked the physicians down for another trial. At the : flret trial the limb was exposed for half an hour with poor success. There'was a faint trace of the bone, but nothing more; Asecond trial lasted fifteen minutes.,and ;was fairly succeseiul. The third exposure was for seven minutes, and the result was excellent. The bone was clearly made out and ithe bullet could be seen lodged in the bone at'the upper border of the neck'-of the femur and just above the spiral;line. A,fourth plate confirmed the third in. ;every detail. As soon as practicable the-limb.will be'operated on and .the bullet removed. Without the use of the X rays no euch result could have been obtained. AUSTRIA'S NEW EXPLOSIVE. D»hrn«nltt> A !• Whot It I* Cnlled- Htron'ger Than Djrunilte. Miners,ore becoming interested in a new mining- explosive described by Prof. P. Eleinpeter, of Vienna, which is being- introduced in Austria. The name given it'is Dahrneni tie A,'.anifl its strength is said to be 33"per'cerit/greater than the beat gelatine dynamite, and, inconsequence of the large volume of gas which it produces—being. approximately double, that yielded by dynamite—it has a wedging rather than a pulverizing action, resulting; in a materially increased fall of Jump coal. Other advantages mentioned are that it can be compressed without losing any of the explosive fore* and in this state is claimed even to exceed dynamite, A weaker detonator is required to bring- it to explosion than is demanded for any other known safety explosive, and -it'is better able to withstand the effects of storage, and no decomposition can. take place when the packing is proper; Indeed, such is the safety with, which it may be bandied that the German railways allow it to be carried on any train. "9omer«anlti." The origin, of "somersaults" must be Bought for in the early' history of .the middle ages. Tile word is a corruption of the old 1 French "sbubresault" . or "soubrcsaut;'"''Italian,' "sopra salto;" Spanish, "sobre ;salto"—'all- '-from the Latin "euper"; or ,"supra,' v -above, or over, and "saltum," accusative of "saJ- tus." a. jump,.vauit,,leap.or bound.

SILVER MARKET WANTED. Why the Millionaire Sliver Mine Owner* Bflfran the Clamor. Attention has many times been called to tho fact that tho first discrimination made against silver was by congress in 1853. From 1702 down to 18C3 silver coin of all denominations was a full legal tender in any amount. But the act of 1853 took away the legal tender quality of all half dollars, quarters and other smaller coinage above fa, and re- dncod the weight of two halt dollars to 884 grains, whereas the dollar previously authorized had 412"^ grains. This act of 18S3 makes no reference to the coinage of dollars. In view of these things I call attention tq the fact that the silver mining interests raised no objection to this action,-though the act both reduced the weight- of the coin, and; took from it its legal tender quality in all sums above ?5. \Vhy was tfiere no clamor against "the crime of 1S53." It is not hard to find the reason, and it is interesting just now to consider it. The fact is that silver bullion brought more in the market than the silver dollar of 412K grains, if you please, more than the silver in tho 16 to 1 ratio. So long as the mining and silver bullion interests were flourishing in the bullion markets of the world with their products, selling it for more than it made them in coined dollars, they did not care for the right-of-way iu Uncle Sam's mints. No, thank yon, "money of final redemption" was a small matter to them, for thoy were flourishing, and the biilance of the world might do the best it could. When the Nation had to buy silver bullion in tho markets of. tho world to keep np the necessary coinage demanded by the business and industry of the country, it had to pay the market price, which was more than tho 10 to 1 ratio. That condition of things continued down" to 16T£. Here nro tho facts token from the^ official statements of the director of the miut: Bullion val.

So in 1874 silver bullion dropped to 98,8, in 1875 to 96,4, in 1876 to 89,4. And »3 down, clown, it went to 50 cents and six tenths in 1895. Note tho fact that the silver mining clamors for "free coinage" at 10 to 1 did not begin till after 1874, when the silver bullion iu the 412^ grain dollar had dropped below $1. Then it was that the other ox was gored and it made a difference, you see. So long as silver bullion was worth more in the market thau a silver dollar at 10 to 1, they cared nothing for "free coinage." . Tho very remarkable thing is that these mine owners now command a following among other people who have no earthly, interest in mining or silver bullioni ond' who would be seriously huft'if the silver barons should capture the Nation and carry out their plans of enriching .themselves. Under the inevitable law of supply and demand, the silver product has fallen in price, just like a great corn crop reduces the price of corn, or oats, or wheat. Wh;le silver bullion was worth more in tho markets of the world' than the silver in the dollar was, as: shown in the table given, the: Nation was coining only two or three millions per year of silver, and the silver baron's clamor-was not heard. ', But when tho. big production of silver increased from 9,000,000 fine ounces in 1889, to 27,000,000 fine ounces in 1874, and silver dropped below a dollar in tho markets, then the silver "barons discovered the ."crime of 1878," They wanted the Nation to : furnish a market that the large supply .had lost them in the world's, markets. It was not the'Nation's interest, nor. the people's interest, they desire to promote, but their own' interests. If it had been the Nation's interest, why didn't they clamor' for'moro silver-coinage—free, silver, coinage, if you please—previous to 1878, when only a very small annual coinage of silver was going on?. .No, silver was'then seUin(?..in'. the .marketfor more than the dollar was worth,, Who can look upon this fantastic clamor of the r silver barons with complacency? It is a remarkable fact that it was never-discovered .that, the country and the world was, "suffering for the want Of free silver coinage"- till it was-pointed out ^by the fellows who mine, and own the silver. There have been some bold, audacious attempts >t class legislation, but here is an attempt at a species of legislation which would, if successful, require : a very large 'class to dig their own graves,'in a business and industrial point of view. .

The following extracts :ire from tho address issued by the sound money Democrats of Ken tacky as recently printed in the Louisville Courier-Journal: "No one doubts that the restoration of prosperity aiid the revival of business will come when confidence in our integrity is so restored as to induce the world to agoftt trust us, and again pour '.'that wealth, into .par lap that has been for over thrtfe years in a process of constant withdrawal, as from a bank of suspected integrity or solvency. Nor can any one .doubt that the present agitation for partial repudiation is but feeding the disease it has caused, and preventing the return of prosperity. . "But tho sober second sense of the people will prevail. The many million people who have carried for years life insurance policies, or paid dues to mutual benefit associations, or industrial insurance associations, and who have sought thereby to secure provision for their families, must realize that if these Populist principles prevail their families may receive, in a depreciated silver currency, only one-half tho value that they hoped to provide. The 4,000,000 of laboring men and women who are depositors in the savings banks of the country will realize that their savings may be cut in two, and only half the value repaid to them iu a depreciated silver currency. Tho 3,500,000 persons who have deposited in the banks of the country must realize that to pay this bounty to the owners of silver mines and bullion may involve a loss to themselves of one-hail of the value of the S.000,000,000 of inouey they have on deposit, and which will be repaid in a Debased silver currency, worth 50 cents on the dollar. "It is known that the total insurance held in the various forms, and which .will become payable to the people of the United States, amounts to about $10,203,804,857. If this movement to debase the currency prevails, the value of that, to the widows and children, may be reduced to one-half. There may thus be a loss of over $5,000,000,000; nearly double the amount of the entire national debt created by the United States during the war of J881-, and half as great as the value of all the railroads in America. It is known, too, that the totals deposits in the banks and trust companies is about $5,863,138,521. If the Populist candidate 'enforces his platform to the letter,' one-half of this' value may be lost—a loss equal to the ruin of another civil war. "Every workingman who receives' wages from a solvent manufactory, railroad, or other employer must realize that this movement threatens the ruin of his employer and tho loss of his own wages. Every one who holds a note or obligation for money loaned, or property sold to another, must realize that, if those principles prevail, he may receive back but half the amount he has loaned or sold his property for. Every laborer who works for wages, every employe who works for a salary, must realize that he will receive, in a depreciated silver currrency, only one-half of the purchasing power of the wages he now receives. Every man who has something to lose in the world, every man who,, by industry and self denial., has accumulated money for his old ago or his family, must realize that those doctrines, if allowed to get control, may yet deprive him of half its value. "Our distinguished secretory of the treasury has most solemnly warned the millions of workers of this industrial nation: . , " 'The American laborer has a right w\ demand pay for his work in as good-, money as the employer receives forms, products in any part of the world, and: when he Burreu'ders this right he is doomed to the same fate that has already overtaken his brothers in the sil- •ver standard countries.' . a '" •'When, to the Bryan plan.of flat money : and repudiation,' and the unlimited right of the silver ; miner to the free coiuage,of- his 5,0 cents, of-silver, into legal tender dollars, there -is added tho Altgeld and" Debs' scheme, of'the right of nnlimited ; riot over the property of others, -accompanied-.:, with; .-sinister threats.against'.our .courts of, justice, it is difficult to'foresee the limit of possible disaster involved in the menace of that platform being 'enforced to • the letter ' • ' • ' : / : 1 'The choice is. between- the old Democratic party and the teachings of Jefferson Jackson, Benton, Tildcn, Cleveland! and Carlisle, n nd a. now-jparty, taught by Altgeld, Tillmau ,and,Bryan.

For a long time temptations, iu the form or attractive, but,.: wo' believe, delusive, promises, of relief from financial .distress, have been offered to the. people bv Populist candidates and agitators.
