Santa Fa Men Co Back.'
Kansas City, Mo., Marcli 18. The
Santsi Fo strike is over. The following
official notice was issued at 0 o'clock this
Kansas City, March 18. To tngineeis
and firemen on the Santa Fo System: I
am advised by our grand chief to request
of you that you return to your respective
positions at once; further, I will go to
Chicago and adjust all misunderstand
ings. J. Coxr.oic.
Chairman of the General Grievance- Com
mittee. Ch lirmau Conros returned from To
peka this morning where he had been in
conference yesterday with Governor Mar
tin and Santa Fe otlieials. He ut once
called the meeting of the committee here.
Conroe quietly boarded the Rock Island
express for Chicago at 4::J9 this morning
and was fifty miles out of tha city by the
time this notice was promulgated. The
ex-strikers here assert that tlia company

Crossing the Muddy Mreet.
I stood at a corner on Main street the
other day and watched the people making
their way across th muddy street. Did
you ever notice how differently this is
done by different people.
There is the lady who pauses moment
arily in dismay, then pathers her skirts
with one hand aud daintily picks her way,
striving to step where some man's big
brogau has left its imprint, but failing be
cause the brogan took such long steps.
Then comes the well dressed man who
never deforms his shapely feet with over
shoes. He glances down at his well pol
ished boots, mutters an imprecation about
the street commissioner, and walks acros3
on his heels, maintaining his balance with
difficulty and losing his temper altogether.
The old resident who is used to this sort
of thing, and who would not feel at home
with a clean pavement in the spring time,
does not permit the muddy crossing to
delay Lini, but with n rkill, born of long
experience, takes advantage of every pro
jecting dry spot that the pavement alTords,
and doesn't get very muddy after alL
Bat the man who produced the strong
est Impression upon me, the man whom
you "will at once recognize, was tha man
whose unpolished boots and insensibility
to dirt cnab"ed him to disregard the mud.
This man sets his foot down like a pilo
driver, or yanks it through the liquid mud
like a snow plow and liberally bespatters
everybody and everything within a radiu3
of five yards. You have met him; every
body has met him. Ho has splashed you
with mud; ho has splashed cverj-body.
He should be abated as a public nui
sance. Kansas City Journal.
Conserve Your Force.
Hamerton says: 4iIt often happens that
mere activity is n waste of time, that peo
ple who have a morbid habit of being busy
are often terriblo time wasters; while, ou
the contrary, those who are judiciously
deliberate, and allow themselves intervals
of leisure, see the way before them In
those intervals, and save time by the ac
curacy of their calculations."
Another writer, unknown, says: "igpuie
mc-n are in incessant action, early and
late, and all thronsh the day. They have
no time for family or friends. As for
holidays, the less for them the better.
They have Inherited a nervous tempera
ment, and are doing just the wrong thing
with it allowing it to hurry them to au
untimely end. They weai themselves
out. Their brain is ever in a state cf
morbid activity almost like that of an in
sane man. A little careful planning, end
a proper laying out of work, and especially
doing everything iu the proper time,
would avoid all such hurry and worry,
make work much easier, secure an abun
dance of leisure and greatly increase
length of life." Scientific American.

AT THE USUAL
Th Deaf Called by a Drum.
Who would think of calling deaf men,
by beating a drum? Yet this is exactly
what is done in the institute for the deaf
and dumb at Flint, Mich. With the drum
resting on the floor and beaten in the usual
way, everybody in the building is
awakened in the morning. It is also used
to call the boys from the playgrounds.
The teachers state that those who can
not hear At all feel the vibrations and
answer the summons, Pittsburg Dis

My little daughter goes to the Trinity
Sunday school and has been to several re
vival meetings. Last week she had her
photojrraph taken, and after the operator
had finished her grandmother asked her
how she fell? She said she felt about as
the thought thoy do when they go forward
for prayers, they don't know whether It
took good or not. Henry W. Woodbury

Wealth of the Uothne-liilrt.
The HothschiMs believe in enjoying
their wealth, aud like to have nice things
about them. One of the Frankfort barons
not long apro paid $1C0,(KJ0 for a silver
cup, which he wished to use as a center
piece of a table service which he was
making np, and one of the Vienna barons
has n stable which cost him $80,000.
This stable has marble lloors, encaustic
tiles painted by distinguished artists, and
its walls are frescoed with scenes done by
well known painters. The rings, chains
and littings of the stable are silver, and
one box stall for a favorite horse cost, it
is said, 1:2,000. The income of the owner
of this stable is about $o,000 a day. The
C rows Versna English Sparrow.
A fight between about 100 crows and
perhaps 200 or.00 Fnglish sparrows was
witnessed at Cuniniinsville, (.)., just bo
fore sundown some time ago. The crows
wero returning to their rookery from feed
ing, when they were attacked by the spar
rows. Four or five of the latter would
get after one crow and pick it so badly as
to almost disable it. In fact, three or
four fell to the groutd, being so badly in
jured as to be unable to ily. The liht
resulted in the complete rout of the crows,
and they seemed only too anxious to get
away. One of them which was picked
up was found to have had botli its eyes
literally picked out. Boston Budget.
Overcoat ua l'neunionltt llreedors.
Judge Tillman, chairman of the con
gressional committee Investigating tho
Beading strike, is GO years of age, strong
and active, and has never worn an over
coat. Bike Hannibal Hamlin, he has a
great prejudice against this garment. "An
overcoat," he says, "is a pneumonia
breeder. When I am cold on the street I
button my coat, and the blasts have no
terrors for ne. When I was at Harvard
cobege that was forty years ago I tried
to wear flannels, but I've never worn
'em since." New York World.
Climate and lira I u IVeizlit.
The avernge weight of the brain of man
apparently bears a definite relation to tho
climate a higher brain weight being found
iu cold .ban in warm countries. In pro
portion to their stature, the B.npps have
the largest heads in F.urope, the Nor
wegians next; then comes the Swedes,
Danes, Germans, French and Italians.
Iu the Arab the head is found to be smaller
than in any of these, while in the far north
there exists a people known as Chngatslics
who possess remarkably large heads.
A Luxury iu Paris. '
Fires are considered a great luxury
here. Wo have immense andirons, and
the fires are built on the stone or tilo
floors. They generally burn a sort cf
m ick made of pressed coal, called a
briquette, warranted to last five hours.
As I tell sister, a common brick would
last longer and give as much heat. Tho
French people are so economical "they
jnnip up and pour water on the fire to
keep it from burning up too quickly.

A New Kind of Oars.
Oars are coming into uso in which the
blade is made from the best sheet steel,
highly tempered, and is alleged to be
much stronger than the ordinary wooden
one, and cannot be broken without undue
violence; the handle fits into the socket,
running nearly the whole length of the
blade, and formiug a backbone of great
strength; and tho oar, being much thin
ner in the blade than the wooden one,
enters and leaves the water cleaner. The
handles are made separately, of spruce
or ash. New York Sun.
Rapidity of Thought.
The learned Dr. McKattrell, in an elab
orate article in The Nineteenth Century,
on the rapidity of thought, states that it
requires one-thirteenth of a second 'to
judge between blue and red. If the doctor
liftd ever noted the time taken by a
woman in choosing the right shade of rib
bon for her spring bonnet, he would not
have been led into so glaring au error.
A High Toned Dynasty.
Tho most high toned dynasty in the
world is that of Japan, according to a
Japanese lecturer in the Berlin Academy
of Oriental Languages. The mikado is
descended from the gods, and is the 121st
of his race. The national religion, Sinto
ism, possesses 8,000.000 gods and saints,
and there are 130,000 temples. New York

"I haven't had a cold for years," said a
well known physician the other night.

of turning up the coilar of my top coat.

A Rello of the War.
The Listener witnessed recently an in
teresting little ceremony tho removal of
three charges from an old revolver, which
had been borne, and evidently used, by
an officer on the field of Cedar Creek, on
Oct. 19, 1804. On that dav, Capt. G. F.
W , of tho Thirtieth Massachusetts,
had, as he charged with his company tho
stone wall behind which tho Confederates
wero entrenched, drawn this old five
shooter, of the most approved ante war
type, which looks about as much like the
ordinary Colt or Smith & Wesson of this
day as a revolutionary firelock does like
tho latest pattern of magazine riile. Tho
revolver was louded, but the captain had
discharged two shots from it. Then he
was himself shot through the heart, and
fell. The men pushed on; the Confeder
ates were driven from their iosiiion, ami
defeat turned into victory; but when Gen.
Sheridan rode before tho reformed line,
and complimented tho troops mon their
bravery, the gallant captain lay back
upon the field, among the dead and
His revolver, with the remaining three
charges in it, was sent home tohis family,
and from that day to this the charges re
mained in it, like a sheathed weapon ready
for service. Occasion had nrNcii. how

younger hand, and it was deemed best to
draw the old charces at last. So the three
percussion caps, that looked as old fash
ioned as a flint lock itself to this genera
tion, were removed. The bullets, with
their paper cartridges, wero carefully
drawn; and the powder fell out of them,
somo of it as bright and doubtless as
energetic, if one were to test it, as when
the captain loaded his revolver before the
battle of Cedar Creek. To one who was
there, the sight of those old cartridges
must have brought back a grim and mov
ing spectacle of as gallant a charge as the
war had known. Boston Transcript
Light Depth of Arctic Snows.
The comparatively light depth of snow
in the north frigid zone is tolerably easy
of explanation, but the difference in con
sistency between it and the same material
further south is not so easy to understand.
In the former case we really have but two
seasons when the snow falls the spring
and autumn the intensely cold weather
of winter being as unfavorable for a snow
storm seemingly as the summer itself; in
fact, I have seen a snow storm every July
and August I was in the Arctic, while
there were a number of months in each
winter of which I could not say the same.
The Eskimo plainly recognize these two
seasons of snow storms, and havo two
different names for tho spring and fall
During the winter there may be high
winds, which carry the loose snow in
drifting packs, so that a person caught
out in such a gale would think at first
sight that he was in a first class snow
storm ; but, nevertheless, none has fallen,
and although drifts have formed deeper
here and there, this has leen picked up
from the ridges and hilltops and the
average depth is the same as before. For
this, too, the natives have a name, and
will inform you that at that temper
ature and that tirno of the year
no snow falls. In Greenland ob
servations have been carried on for
many years by Danish meteorologists, and
Dr. Rink, the best authority on that
region, says that "iu north Greenland the
amount of snow annually falling is in
ferior to that of south Greenland," and
this law seems to be general. In short,
the heaviest fall of snow is not iu the
frigid no more than in tho torrid zone,
but somewhere between the two. Lieut.
