It was the custom of the ex-minister, when
managing his congressional contests, to doliver

ten miles from Oalona. This was tb.0 grand

Thero was one thing that Uncle Elihu (as he
used sometimes to be called) was distinguished
for, and that was bravery. Ho was pluck to
the backbone, although then of spare dimen
sions, he was as strong as a lion and as quick
as a cat. On one of the occasions
above mentioned Mr. 'Washburne was ad
dressing a large meeting at Council Hill.
Among the audience was quite a smattering

It for awhile complacently, and linally re
quested tho ejection of Welch. There was not
a man in the audience who dared to tackle tho

Cncle Lilhu himself, stung to passion by
taunting and grossly insulting remark of
Welch, loaped down from the stago,
and. makine his war to where tho
drnnken loafer was scatod, he caught
him by the hand and jerked him from
his perch with lightning rapidity and hustled
him out the door before Welch Lad fairly time

Washburne thon dull berately walked back to
the platform and continued his speech without
runner interruption, weicii lingered about
the church for some time threatening to shoot

Ieter Cooper's Monument.
New York Lottor.
Tho project to build a monument to Peter
Cooper on tho littlo grassy triangle between
Third and Fourth avenues, just below Cooper
Union, has been put forth under such auspicos
that it is likely to bo realized. At tho samo
time an earnest protest will go up from the
workingmon's leagues and others who will fur
nish tho money against erecting a memorial
that shall be merely a pile of stono, however
well finished. It is felt that a monument to
such a man should be somohow a history of
his life a handsome pedestal, for instance,
Burrounded with bas-relief groups of his va
rious activities, and surmounted with a he
roic statue of himself in his prime actually
One day last week I was talking with one of
our best sculptors on tho Bubiect. The loca
tion choson is an admirablo one." he said, "and
the statue to be placed there ought to bo full
of life, as he always was. It seems to me it
should be made to commemorate both tho man
and ono of tho eroatest events in our history.
of which he was the hero. Peter Cooper built
tho first locomotive, and made with it the first
steam trip on land over made in this country.
He built it mostly with his own hands, and
wholly with his own ingonuitr.and he put it on
tne Baitimoro & Ohio railroad and made a trial
trip before btepnenson s great triumph in
England.and even before news of Stephenson's
experiment had reached our shores. The
statue should be placed on the pedestal with
tho eager forolook of an engineer, and holding
in the right nana tho lever of a locomotive.
This, if well done, would bo worthy of the
subject while it would record America's part
iu tne greatest invention or the century, and
would indicate the strongest bent of Mr.
Cooper's life that for mechanical contri-
On Modjeska's marriage with Count Bozenta,
her second husband, a true love match on
both sides, the Cincinnati Times-Star says that
she desired to leave the Polish stage, and cut
ting short her triumphant career, with its at
tendant hardships and illusions, to retire into a
natural and peaceful privacy. She and her
husband then left Poland, taking with them a
large number of their countrymen and wo
men, witn the somewhat yunotio idea or
founding a Polish colony in California.
There they dwelt peacefully, indeed.
but not too prosperously. Madam e's
beautiful hands made the butter, milked the
cows, and fashioned the garments of her hus
band and littlo son. Eventually the count
found that this idyllic life was runnlnir awar
with his fortune indeed the charming couple
are not of tho stuil of which money
makers are made. With a nobility
and generosity not often encountered,
they paid the return passage to Po
land of every member of their now numerous
colony and found themselves penniless in Cali
fornia. It was then that Mme. Mokjeska made
her first appearance in America, actually play
ing for her daily bread. In three months she
learned English, with which she was quite un
acquinted, sufficiently well to play in it, and
has now become tho women whom two con
tinents love .nd admire.
The Strength of Xltro-Glycerine.
The technical manager of an English "ex
plosive company" writes to The London Times
to say that the current statements in regard to
the effect of nitro-glycorine explosions are
much exaggerated. He states that the
maximum effect of tho explosion of a
ton of nitro-glycerine would be 61,452 foot
tons or a power equal to raising 04,452 tons
weight one foot Dyamite would be some
thing less, 45,675 foot-tons ; blasting gelatine,
rather more, or 71. 050. 1 his would be the
maximum effect, and could bo obtained only
under the most favorable circumstances:
71,000 tons of ordinary building stone would
be a cube ninety -six feet upon oacn side, and
the explosion would raise it but one foot The
explosion of a ton of any explosive at present
known would bo purely local m its effects. A
few bnildings would bo destroyed, but beyond
the immediate vicinity nothing worse than
broken class would result Tho writer coos
on to say that he has often exploded a pound
of dynamite suspended from the end of a fishing-rod
by a string about six feet long. As
there was do solid matter to project, no re
ceived no injury. ajThere were i-mally about
threo feet of string left uninjured, and the fishing-rod
was not shattered. All this should be
vastly reassuring to the emperor of Russia and
other "blarsted" rulers who at present live in
a state of mortal terror.
How Adulteration Is Punished in
Popular Science News.
In Germany tho adulteration of food or
drink involves, on conviction of the delinquent,
extremely heavy penalties. As an instance, a
wine merchant, for manufacturing a liquor
sold by him as pure wine, but adulterated with
various compounds and ingredients, was con
victed and amerced in a heavy penalty, sen
tenced to be imprisonod with hard labor for
three and a half years, and ninety thousand
bottles of the beverage that still remained un
sold in his cellars wore forfeited.

- "Doctor," said a fond mother, leaning over
tho bedside of her soa who seemed to be Buf
fering greatly, "what is the matter with him?"
The physician examined the sufferor and re
plied, "He's sick." "Thore," exclaimed the
woman, "I knew you could tell what was the
matter with him. How fortunate it is that you
are in the neighborhood !" And she looked at
the medical gentleman with an expression that
poke of restful confidence.
- Ho w Bamnm Emptied a Hhow.
A story is told of how Barnum once succeed
ed In emptying his big show at a time when it
-was densely erowded and thousands were wait
ing ouhdde to obtain admission. He knew
that a start was all that was needed to effect
this purpose, but how to manage that was the
rub. At length a bright idea occurred to him.
Fainting up in large letters on a pioce
of calico, 'This way to Egress," he hung
it up at a convenient anglo of his
show. Some of the simple country
people thinking "egress" was some strange new
animal just added to the collection, passed
through the slit in the curtain, and to their
amazement found themselves outside the show.
The thing was done, livery body saw every
other body making for the corner where the
new animal was on exhibition, and in a few
minutes the show was emptied, the outgoing
stream being so great that it was quite impos
ibla to turn when once caaslit in its eddr. .

. "PLUNGER" WALTON
lven Hit Ideas or the
Hotel of the
New York Letter.
"I shall build on that spot," said Hunger
Walton, the other evening, pointing to the
Madison Square Garden, Mho finost hotel in
New York. It will occupy the wholo block.
Thero will be a great court in tho centre, like
the palaces of Central. Europe. And I will
have flowers and fountains of running water in
the court, and it shall bo covered with
glass that can easily open. Every floor
shall be mosaic, like the vestibule
floor of the Casino and Windsor Pal
ace, and the main entrance shall be on the in
ner court The building shall be lire-proof,
and there shall be elevators till you can t ros
I mean till you can." After this burst of
enthusiasm he went off aud saw Vandorbilt,
who was so affected by the fervor as to charge
him about twice as much as the place was
worth. 'Twas ever thui. Every week or two
somebody is fascinated anew by the blandish
ments of tho old hippodromo: Yanderbilt is ap
plied to, aud, with proper prudence,
he marks it up a notch oacn time.
At the figure named Walton hesitates.
Hut he will very likely buy it at last; for he
has made a heap of British gold out of the cx
ploits of Iroouois and i'oxliall, and he has
nothing on earth to do at the present time ex
copt merely to run tho St Jame3 hotel and
keep the New York streets clean. I shouldn't
wonder if he bought a newspaper to expend
his money and energy on. But a colossal hotel
first: for he has some pet ideas to realize, one
of which is to furnish any sort of climate tho
guest wants. Ho insists that, with glass over
head and compressed air to be supplied
through pipes, any sort of latitude and longi

at a loss to conjecture what it all meant The
vehicles, the number and sturdy appearance
of some of the excursionists, and so far as
they could see the absence of all motive for
the gathering, puzzled the country people ex
ceedingly. At last, when a party who had
formed a circle round Dr. Buckland to hear
his explanation of the conformation of the
surrounding country had broken up and were
leaving tue grouna, one wonaering native was
heard to remark to another in a tone of severe
disappointment: "I say Roger, why. dang

Tennyson is one of the finest looking men in
the world. A great shock of rough, dusty,
dark hair, bright, laughing, hazel eyes, mas

Indian-looking, clothes cynically loose free
and easy; smokes infinite tobacco. - His voice
is musical, metallic, fit for loud laughter,
piercing wail, and all that may lie between;
speech and speculation free and plenteous ;

"A common prairie track costs 512,000 per mile
to construct $3,150 for grading, $.1,022.50 for
fifty-fcix-pound steel rails, leaving less than
$5,000 for bridging, ties, track laying, etc.
This does not include right of way. But a
road equipped with depots, round-houses, etc.,
should not cost over $20,000 per mile, and on
roost roads between the Mississippi and the
Rocky Mountains the cost per mile was less."
