THE INSTRUMENTS TO WHICH ALL
RUSH IN HOT WEATHER.
The Tubes Frequently Imperfect Keeord
of Cheap Thermometer How They
Are Made The Centigrade Cee of the
During the hot spell there Is no Instrument
that is studied more carefully than the ther
mometer. Every one want to know how hot
it is each day, and all continually consult
these little glass tubes. These vary some
times several degrees at the same Instant.
Baid a dealer in thermometers to a reporter:
"Thermometers are very curious Instru
ments. Sometimes we find one that Is all
right at certain points and at others it will
be several degrees out of the way. These
variations are caused by irregularities in the
tube. The tubes are very frequently imper
fect. When the tube Is too large, of course,
the registration is several degrees lower than
it should be. Sometimes the tube is too
small, and then the mercury shoots up higher
than it ought to. The tubes have to be sea
soned. This takes several months. When
glass is new it changes, expands, contracts
and warps almost as badly as green wood.
Very often, after buying a cheap thermom
eter the customer has brought it back and
said it registered 100 degrees in the shade,
when the temperature was only ninety. The
best thermometers are made in London.
These imported thermometer? are, however,
very expensive. Some very good ones are
made in this country at New Lebanon, N. Y.,
and at Rochester."
1IOW THEY ARE MADE.
"How aro they made I" was asked.
"The tube is b'own to the size wanted, the
top being left open. The bulb is then heated
to expel the air, and while heated the open
end is inserted into some mercury. As the
tube cools the mercury runs into the vacuum.
The open end is then sealed and the tube
placed on a scale. Then it is placed in water
of a known temperature and the point to
which the mercury rises is marked. Several
tests like this are made before the instrument
is offered for sale."
"How are the thermometers proved to be
"There is a place at Harvard college for
testing them. They are carefully examined
at different temperatures and any variation
is marked. A certificate is given with every
instrument that is examined."
"Which scale do you think is the best!"
"The centigrade is the one I think should
be generally adopted. For the use of brew
ers there is a thermometer about three feet
long, with a bulb about two feet in length.
The scale of this is short, and is only marked
for a few degrees above freezing point. An
other odd instrument is of English make, and
can be read in the dark. The tubs is filled
with a green composition and contains phos
phorus. Spirit thermometers are used for
very cold climates, as mercury congeals at 30
degs. below zero. These cannot be used to
measure extreme heat, as above a certain
temperature the liquid expands too fast; it
boils at 160 degs. For very high tempera
tures the pyrometer takes the place of the
thermometer. The heat is measured by the
expansion of metals, and will accurately
register up to 700 degs. Febrile thermom
eters, for the use of physicians, are very care
fully made, and a certificate is sold with them
indicating their variations from perfect ac
curacy." New York Mail and Express.
Few Collegians In Journalism.
In an address at the commencement exer
cises of Middlebury college, Air. George E.
Plumbe, a Chicago editor, tried to explain
why it was that so few men with academic
culture are found among the members of the
daily newspaper press. He gave some inter
esting statistics on this subject, which may be
thus summarized: In the five great cities of
New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston
and St. Lonis there are nineteen daily jour
nals of admitted influence. Only six of these
are edited by men who have bad what is
called a "liberal" education, while of the 821
persons regularly employed upon these
journals as editors and reporters, but 222, or
a fraction over 26 per cent., have graduated
from a higher institution of learning.
Mr. Plumbe offers several explanations of
this, but omits the most significant one, which
we take to be the fact that what may be
called journalistic aptitude is not a product
of academio culture at all. It is true that
the same thing might be said of the special
talent or talents which count for success in
the profession of law or medicine, but the in
dividuality of the journalist goes for more
than does that of the doctor or the lawyer.
He must be born with a certain sense of dis
crimination and of proportion, most have a
kind of intuitive perception not only of what
will interest his fellow men, but of what is
the general bent of mind of large masses of
readers. The Epoch.
Labor and the Golden Kule.
A writer in The Open Court, a scholarly
Chicago publication, relates an experience of
his early life which carries an instructive
lesson. Although now possessed of a com
petency, in his early years he trundled a
wheelbarrow in the construction of railroads,
and deemed himself a skilled workman then,
as he was, for the men were few who could
accurately and jauntily roll and dump their
barrows. One day an aged fellow worker
said to him: "Yez could wheel on a horse's
rib," and the tribute was a diploma. Soon
afterward there came along a greenhorn,
stalwart, but awkward. He made a mess of
the job, but only one man volunteered to in
struct him in the knack of walking the plank.
For his kindness in doing so Jemmy Hill was
upbraided by his confreres, who looked on
the new arrival as a "plug" and a "scab.
Their taunts had little effect on Jemmy, but
one day he took aside the writer of the narra
tive which we condense and showed him a
little watch charm, on which were engraved
two torches, the one lighting the other, with
this motto underneath: "My light is none
the less for lighting my neighbor." What a
lesson that was in political economy and the
humanities I It is gratifying to be informed
that this philosophic and kindly barrow
trundler afterward became president of a
great railroad. New York Graphic.
The Depository for Stolen Pocketboolts.
A favorite depository for stolen pocket
books is a lamp postal box. The inquiry de
partment of the post office has fourteen pock
etbooks on hand now, out of twenty received
during the year. The pickpocket seems to
have some slight sense of honor, as he is con
tent with the money he finds in the pocket
book. He puts the book and any draft or
other articles of no value to him, but of pos
sible value to the owner, into the letter box,
so that it may eventually reach the owner.
One Sunday night last fall a noted politi
cian was robbed of his pocketbook at 155th
street. He felt the rascal at work, but he
was protecting an old lady in a big crush and
was powerless. He never expected to hear of
his pocketbook again. On the next day he
got a notice from the post office that it was
there. He at once claimed it, as it had a safe
key and some documents of value, but the
t00 in bills were gone. New York Sun.

Could the history of this single block be

"Copy" from the Telegraph Operator.
His day operator at once commences to
take the report from the Morse sounder on a
type writer. He is a fast operator, and he
takes on an average seventy-five words a
minute. He could take more if it were pos
sible to send it faster. A voluminous code is
used to facilitate the sending. Thus "t"
stands for "the," "Wshn" for "Washington,"
"fm" for "from," "mfrs" for "manufacturers,"
etc. These words are filled out on the type
writer while they are coming in abbreviated
form over the wire.
A batch of "copy," neatly type written, is
soon ready, and a boy dashes down stairs
with it to the telegraph editor of the after
noon paper, who cuts it up, puts suitable
"heads" to the different items, and sends them
to the printers. Only the news comes over
the wire, and the operator sits impassively,
with unchanging countenance, taking mur
ders, riots, weddings, bank failures, Jubilee
items, conspiracies, desperate battles and
ministerial conventions in one long, clicking
monotone, without anything to distinguish
one item from another except the date and a
new line. The sorting afterward is the work
of the telegraph editor. Pittsburg Dispatch.

his old comrades at Faneuil halL Jollity

clinking of glasses. The deft waiters ran to

Booker was in a gay group. Another toast
bad just been proposed and a fresh round of
champagne was in order. Capt. Booker
raised his glass in the air as a signal to a
waiter for more wine. A man came toward
him. Capt Booker was paying attention to
the table talk. Ha felt a touch on his shoul

A Hand to Hand Fight.
At the culmination of tho battle of Bailors
creek, when we got into the "hand to hand"
part of it, there was a brass cannon belong
ing to the rebel battery stuck iu bbe mud and
the artillery men had left It, when it was
discovered that it was loaded. It was not in
a position to bo of any service to either friend
or foe, while if it could be extricated from
tho mud it was good for at least one shot at
somebody. Three "Johnnies" and two "Tanks"
took in tho situation about the sum time, and
throwing aside their empty rifles rushed for
this gun. A "Yank" and a "Johnnie" caught
the sponge staff simultaneously and began a
fight for it, while the other two "Johnnies"
caught hold of one wheul and tried to turn
the muzzle of the gun toward us. The other
"Yank" caught the opposite wheel. Thus
they stood and tugged avray for two or three
minutes, until our men coming up drove the
"Johnnies" away. For a few minutes things
were mighty lively; the "Johnnies" got a bat
tery into position and began throwing shells
into the crowd, wliero blue and gray were
mixed together, but a soctioa of one of our
batteries coming up on the dead run soon
drove them off, and settled the matter fur the
day. "Trefoil" iu Buffalo News.
An Omaha Horse Punlo.
It is becoming customary to propound puz
zles having horso trades as a oentral thamo.
While this paper has no borne editor, there
are several people upon Its staff who can tell
a horse at sight, and who are not slow at
arithmetic. A puzzle has occurred to one of
tliem, and he gives it to the world at large.
Sup;ose A sells a horse for $100 to B, Then
B iu turn sells him to C for $110, and the
animal dies. What does each make or loset
The problem looks simple, but it is not. In
the first place, A had stolen the horse. His
profit would naturally be $100. A difficulty
presents itself just here, for B paid A In
counterfeit money, while C paid B by a note.
B wus indicted for passing counterfeit money.
In revenge ho had A arrested for stealing tho
horse, and both went to tho pen. To add to
the complications, D, the real owner of the
horse, came along and claimed the hide and
hoofs. The claim was disputed by C, and
consequently upon the ensuing argumeut Cs
doctor's bill was $7.75. In the mean time a
lawyer had gotten hold of the note and tried
to collect it. C compromised the matter by
licking the lawyer, and, grabbing the not,
tore it up. At present there have beau uo
more developments. Omaha Herald.
