Among tho materials stored in Edison's laboratory aro samples of every substance in tho world; tho thousands of pigeon holes and drawers contain skins, feathers and furs of tho whole animal creation, bones and tusks of all sorts of creatures, minerals, barks, grasses, drugs, fruits and gums in bewilder ing completeness. Borne of the species are so ra.ro that they are kept like diamonds, in little folded pa pei-s. The grotesque nature of some of tho materials there collected prompted the inquiry: llow can you ever want such things as sharks' teeth or rhinoceros' hornf 'That shows t;hat you . don't know what queer things electricians use," replied our modern Virgil. "During the progress of the experience with the incandescent electric light, for instance, nearly everything onecan think of was tried as a primary material from which to form the delicate carbon fila ment whose incandescence is thesourceof the libt. Finally, as perhaps you know, flireds of one particular variety of bamboo were lound to give tho most gratifying results; and there, by the way, you can see a few bales of the very reeds from which those strips aro cut. Again, tho delicate needle, which, aCixed to the under sidoof tho yilj'at U3 diaphragm of tho phonograph, iadents the er.iooth, revolving surface of the waxen cylinder, had to bo formed of somo material. pofesesing peculiar properties pf elasticity find rigidity. Scores of the most i.:. likely .ubstauces, both organic and inorganic, nat ural and artificial, were tried beforo the right cno was hit upon. And so it goes v. i:h all tho details of electric appliances." Cosmopolitan. Not a Doubt of It. Mf. GreatheaJ I have dsvisod r. great scLemo, Sir.

Tito sea3 in tho smoking compartmeuts of tho Lan.singcar tho other morning were all filled, and the air was odorous of cabbage leaves and odoriferous of burning Havana tobacco. Each smoker had some stories to tell, and from the lot a few samples are given below: "My first experience, " said W. It. Bates, "was in the iSew i oi k leirihlature. I was a boy then and I held a clerkship in the docu ment room. Those were the days when Daniel Drew was ono of the princes of the state. One day Mr. Drew came into tho room and said to me: " 'Boy, can you writer "I said I could. " 'Well, I want you to fill out theso passes,' and he threw down a handful of the paste boards, which I filled out according to his lit. whilo he slowly and laboriously put in tho signature that made them good. When the work was done, I said: " 'Mr. Drew, you haven't got another of thoso passes, have youf "He looked keenly at me a moment and then said: " 'Young man, you're learning your lesson early. What is your unmeT "1 told him. " 'My secretary,' he continued, 'will bo here at noon and will bring you a pass.' "I supjxjsed that Mr. Drew would forget all about the matter, but he didn't. I got tho pass." "That reminds me of a little experience I had with Mr. Drew," said Capt. Joe Nichol son. "I had a cargo consigned to him with or ders not to deliver it without taking Mr. Drew's personal receipt When I went to get tho paper he stepi! up to sign it and I asked him to have some one identify him, as I had never seen him before, and I did not know how big a man ho was. He readily com plied, and then I applied for i'00, as I had authority to do, to buy supplies " 'Certainly, certainly,' ho said. 'But first get somo one to identify you.' "In vain I suggested that he had just given me a receipt as the captain of the vessel. That wouldn't do, and you can believe it took me some tirno to find a person who knew both Daniel Drew and myself." "Well, sir," began Mr. Bates, promptly taking up the thread of the discourse, "Mr. Drew camo into the document room ono day and asked mo if there was a bright young lad about. I called a sharp little chap. Mr. Drew pulled from his pocket a big roll of bills. He took a piece of tissue paper, such as chewing tobacco was then rolled in. Then ho wrapped the roll of bills neatly and twist ed the ends until the package looked exactly like a roll of fine cut. lie gave it to tho boy, saying: " 'You know Representative Blank! (Tho boy said he did.) Well, you go up pretty near him and just as the man who is now speaking starts to sit down, you give this fine cut to Representative Blank and tell him Daniel Drew sent it.' "Tho boy obeyed his instructions to the letter. Representative Blank pocketed tho package and when the honorable member had finished Air. Blank ai-oso and made a learned and eloquent speech against the bilL Mr. Urew listened with satisfaction and then gavo tho boy $10 and told him to keep quiet." Detroit Journal. CEMETERIES Or PANAMA. Graven Itetitrd ami I!olic l.urleil In O'ltl 1 1 .111(1 Collins. The ceineU'iics of I'auatna, live in ell, aro at Cocoa grove, and aro within one minus's walk from ono another. They are all man aged by one firm, Bves Obarrloly Chi.' One of theso gentlemen went with mo through all the graveyards and explained everything of interest. 1 ho hvo cemeteries are the foreign, the Chinese, tho Jewish, the old SjianLsh and tho now Spanih. People may bo buried in any of these according to desire. JTho man agers of the cemeteries are the only ones in tho business of manufacturing, selling and letting cofiins; so they have a colIIn monop oly just as tho Boston loo comxuiy has a monopoly of ieo, or a New York house has a monopoly ia hams. There tho Fituama Canal company manu facture whatever cofiins they need for their employes, and transact a very brisk business in this particular. In tho price of cofiins there is a wide margin, tho sum lioing from $7 to $100. If even J? 7 is higher than can bo afforded, an old coflln more or less clean, in good condition of repair, can le hired for one-tenth tho sellina: prir rf - : . : i a second hand coiiia oi lu-.juUlui! appearance, bought for interment at $ 1, the corpse being transferred at tho grave. This is done to a largo extent. For instance, if a poor man's friends want to give him a first class send off for a little money they can hire a $100 cofiln for one-tenth, i. e., $10, and buy an old ono for interment at 1, making $11, or hiring a $ 10 one, the whole cost is only ., or he may buy a $1 one at once and not hire auy other, or he may go still lower by not using any coffin at all, in which ca-so ho is sandwiched between two weather beaten boards. It is said that ho sleeps as long and perhaps as comfortably this way as in the most superbly trimmed receptacle. The graves are not sold, but rented for ono or two years. If the retrular rental is not paid the body is disinterred, tho bones thrown m a common heap and the coffin used as a second hand one. This is a very general re sult of burial. The same system prevails, i too, in the lioredas, where holes in masonry are let for $12 for eighteen months. Friends are usually neglectful after a period of mourn ing, and a common heap of bones kept in a hugh yard is enonnous. There, Celestials, Caucasians and Africans are mixed up like Buttercup's babies. This jumble of human remains suggests much trouble when Gabriel blows his trumpet. Who will be able to find tho full complement of his own skeleton? The agile one may mako up his own deficiency from tho pick of the rest, but tho slow moving individual will be apt to miss it. I fear there will be many misfits to tho Celestial grave. Who can tell whether ono is entitled to ad- I mission if one is composed partly of some one I else? Tho very thought is disagreeable and perplexing. A Panama Letter. The Skull of a Cobra. Tho skull of a cobra lies before rn.s, From the tip of the snout to tho back of tho skull tho length Is ono and onetquarter inches. Tho brain case is an ivory casket of great solidity, but the jaw bones are loosely con nected, and during life an capable, pf a good deal of mot.iciL Tha two side" pieces of the lower jaw are in the snake only united in front by elastic tissue. Behind they do not hinge on tho brain caso itself, but ou long suping ones which jut out at tho back of the skull, and these are capablo pf met ion out ward, so as to widen the Epaee between them. Not only 010 there teeth on the lower jaw and along tho outer edges of tho upper jaw in tho python's skull, but there are also extra rows of teeth implanted in the bones which lie ono on each side of the palate, Th tet-tU are not for crushing or tearing or chewing.

The curved teeth aro constructed to, prevent that, Ji urrayV Mag- . Window Ventilation. To obtain ventilation by a window, with out a draft to strike a person, a direction to tho following effect has been constantly re peated by every hygienist and hygienic pub lication for a numbor pf years past without a suspicion of its fallacy, apparently, on j part or any one 01 tne public s lr;injCtors. "Fit a strip of board fclto tuo window casing at tho bottom, Under the lower sash, so as to raise ttio sash two or three inches, and the thia spaces between the panes, where the sashes lap over each other, will be open above oml below, affording egress and ingress to tho air in vertical directions, while tho board excludes a horizontal draft that would strike a person near the window." The objection to this plan is that it is built exactly wrong side up, in deflance of tho law of gravitation, and will not work. It con templates the exit of the warm and rarefied air of tho room downward through tho colder air between the sashes, and expects tho still colder and heavier air outside to climb up ward through the lighter inclosed air and turablo over the top of the sash into tho room. Tha amount of air exchanged be tween outside and insido in this way will bo hardly perceptible, unless a strong breeze blows against the window. Tho way to get ventilation through this interspace, and a truly excellent way, is to P'ph UP the lower sash to tho top of the cas ing, and pull the upper sash down within a few inches of the sill, stopping the gap at tho bottom with tho board above mentioned. Tho it will then find a downward entrance and tho lighter ah" within ward, Sanitary Era. will escape up Fine Job Work Herald office. a specialty nt The TO BE Given Away P TO BE given km.
