An Incident that is narrated of G

tion so often asked: Why did his sol
diers love him so dearly?
When the Army of "the Potomac left

Jam- river The advance division tw
ran it march early in the moi-mug m

afternoon of the same day
J net at dank a creek was reached,

cnatnm, by fording or by a iule
by the roadside The toldiers, (llslikii,).'
to fill their shoes with water, were trv
iug to cross on thi tingle log. which ol
course caused an obstruction to tlu-
behind, and really put the rear of the
army in danger.
Soon several officer rode np and too

"Wade right through, my men: wade

No jer had be spoken than the

The diera gave him a hearty cheer,
plunged into the creek, and afterward

The general might have reprimanded
the soldier indeed, he might have had
him arrested and dealt with severely.
But nmler the circumstances be did just

To the question a to when, where,
and how accidents occur, the only gen
eral auswnr tuat can lie given U. When
they are least expected The commer
cial traveler who injure because he is
exposed to danger while ou the rail
draw indemnity for an injury received
while winding a clock. The dentist
who endeavor to protect himself aguinst
possible personal injury while nsing his
tools Is disabled by a cinder in his eye.
It is to be noted, however, that more ac
cidents in proportion to population oc
cur in the south, the southwest and the
west than in the northern, the middle
and the eastern state. The older and
mors closely settled portions of the coun
try are the safer one. As to the times
and seasons, midwinter, with its icy
sidewalks, and midsummer, with its
great variety of outdoor occupations,
are especially prolific of accidents.

Two men were sitting face to face be
tween the car track on Park row tin
other day It seemed to tie a dangerous
position, for they could not follow then
work and at the same time keep then
even on the rattling team on either
hand They bad to keep their elbows
in. too. or the car would hump them
They were seated at a manhole, tenting
cable of wire which were in the subway
beneath. Eacb had the end of a cable
iu band and a portable galvanometer a
ujnare box about the size of a cigar box
-in front of him
lint a few years ago the man engaged
in connecting wire in this way touched
the tip of each wire in turn to the tip of
bis tongue. If there was a current run
ning through the wire he felt a little
pricking and a sour taste. He did thi
the whole day through, -nd was none the
worse for receiving so many slight elec
tric shocks ami tasting so much copper
It was a very primitive tent, but a very
good one, and old wire testers still use it
wnen in a hurry But soon a galvan
ometer was made, which not only finds
the current but give some idea of its
strength The rapid way in which In
vention has been piled upon invention in
the electrical world is marvelons, and i.
seems surprising that a sullicient num
ber of workmen of sufficient intelligence
should be found in such a hurry to prac
tically put these inventions into use.
A question upon thi very point was
put to a well known electrician' who
happened to saunter by the two men at
"It Is only surprising in a measure,
he said "As a matter of fact, the busi
ness has grown much faster than the
intelligence necessary to Candle it, and
many accidents are due to that fact. The
electric light people at first bad to rely
very largely on th workmen engaged by
the telegraph companies, and both had
to draft in a large nnmlx-r of new men
and train them to the work. Any man
with a little knowledge of mechanics
and the handling of tools toon make a
good lineman There is no great skill re
quired, except In care that the wire does
not become abraded in handling, while
the good wages paid for the work
seventy-five dollars a mouth area great
inducement But the business has un
doubtedly suffered in its rapid progress
for the want of skilled men, and the
market is by no means overstocked yet
Only the other day one ol the New York
companies hail to send to the New Eng
land Cable company to borrow men to
make joints in city lines.
'Some of the underground work, too.
bas been badly done, but much of this
has twen quite as much due to keen com
petition and the proverbial economy of
the unscientific stockholders When it
comes to buying wire, costing from
(I.4O0 tol..Vw a mile, the stockholder
lias a lot to say about it, and cheap wire
is too often a result One of the electric
light ci.i:;;a:-,u- runs an alternating cur

One of the things alorbiiig the atten

'Have the workrc'i a uuion yet!"
'No, not y, t. 'ln-re is an association
called the Society of Electrical Engi
neers." 'And where do the engineers and
executive men come from?"
"A g'xxl many of the head of depart
ments have their training at the various
schools of technology, such as the Stev
ens institute. Cornell university, the
Massachusetts School of Technology. In
deed, nearly all th universities have
clasaea in electricity now, and they sup
ply a good deal of the talent for the busi-

start, and readily get more according to
the ability they display.
"It i a great busmen for a man to get
Into, whether he is well educated or not.
There Is such an enormous field for the
application of electric power outside of
the electric light See bow fait the
lectno street car have grown through

other almost innumerable application

Sawflshe belong to th order of rays,
although their bodies hav the shape of
ordinary fishe. They swim wholly
with their tails, snd the long weapons
which adorn their noses are merely pro
longations of tb snout, armed on either
aid with teeth in socket and covered
with rot'h skin of great toughness.
With this formidable instrument they
rtteck their prey, tearing piece of flesh
from it body or ripping open th abdo
men to feed npon the Intestines of the
victim. There is something positively
abnormal about all these creature called
rays. They suggest the notion of fishes
antediluvian, and it is not tnrprising to
find many large and extinct specie
among tb fossils of vanishc i epoch.
