An Uneven Trade.
A Brooklyn boy nine or ten years old
began several months ago to save money
to buy a pony. His parents and rela
tives humored his whim, and having
I amPe means they helped along his ac
cumulations very rapidly. The young
ster had no idea of the purchasing power
of money, but he had started out with
the notion that when he filled his little
iron bank he would have enough to buy
the pony. When the bank would hold
no more he broke it open, and his mother
counted $60.15. "That is not enough to
buy a pony, said she. "Then I guess
I'll take a tricycle," said the boy. The
tricycle was bought, and the boy started
to explore the neighborhood. He was
gone about two hours, and when he
reached home he liad no tricycle, but he
held his hat carefully under his arm.
"Oh, mamma, look at these pretty kit

small kittens just able to walk. "1

Consul Denby, of Peking, China, re
ports that in 1889 from one port, Ichang,
there were exported 13,000 pounds of
tigers' bones. For use as fertilizers
the only use intelligent people seem to
have for dead tigers these bones might
be worth $150, yet they were entered at
a value of $3,000. They are to be used
as a medicine. From them will be made
a "tonic," which the Chinese invalid be
lieves will impart to him some of the
tiger's strength and fierceness. For the
same "medicinal" reasons 9,000 pounds

The Army and the Church.
The Austrian war minister has issued
an order to encourage religious feeling
in tne army, lie nnas tnac Austrian
soldiers do not attend divine service ac
cording to the regulations. Inasmuch
as the encouragement of religious feel
ing is regarded as of great service to the
military, the army must henceforth go
to church at least once a month. Like
wise, young officers in command at
church must conduct themselves, in a
more reverential spirit than has been
observed lately. Berlin Letter.
Some genius in Syria, named Mousa
Rhouri, has discovered the secret by
which the silkworm makes silk. He
can make the silk by machinery without
the aid of the silkworm. In this way
the cost of making silk can be reduced
one-half. A manufactory is to be started
in Georgia soon by a Syrian colony. To
manufacture silk in this way a large
tract of land has been secured on which
to plant mulberries, and the emigrants
expect soon to make their fortunes.

The problem of a "telegraph without
wires" has often been broached, but, RO
far as I know, even the theoretical reali
cation of this project has never been
seriously attempted until recently, when
Mr. hdison gave forth his views regard
ing the matter. It would seem that Mr.
iMlison has actually patented "means
for transmitting signals electrically
without the interposition of connecting
wires. What he has to say regarding
this subject is well worth our attention.
He logins with the announcement of
his discovery that, if a sufficient eleva
tion bo obtained to overcome the curva
ture of the earth, and to reduce as far
as may be the earth's absorption, elec
tric signaling may be carried on by in
duction without the use of wires cou-
I necting tho distant points of signaling
! For signaling across oceans, says Mr.
Edison, this method will lie very service
able, inasmuch as it does away with
the use of submarine cables; while for
communication between vessels at sea.
or between vessels at sea and points on
land, the invention would be equally
important. There is also no obstacle to
its employment between distant points
on land, but in the latter case it is nec
essary to increase the degree of eleva
tion or height from which the signaling
operations are conducted, because of the
induction absorbing effect of houses.
trees and hills.
Mr. Edison states that at sea he can
communicate electrically to a great dis
tance from a height of 100 feet. This
height could be secured from the mast
of a ship, so that signals could be sent
from ship to ship, and communication
be established, in this way, even over
oceans themselves. Dr. Andrew Wil
son in Illustrated London News.

a nig Peach crop Predicted.
If the experts who have recently been
t examining the orchards in the fruit sec-

j with the colossal crop impending.
The farmers for the most part are a
little skeptical about this prediction.
r They say a good fruit year is almost in-

last season the hogs were ted upon

The Snake Was Too Slow.
With the approach of spring flowers
and mild weather the crop of Georgia
snake stories betrins to increase. The
latest comes from Albany, in that state,
and is to the effect that two or three
days ago a Mr. Watson, a reputable citi
zen, stepped on a big rattler. All that
saved the man from being bitten was
that the snake had just begun to swal
low a rabbit and hadn't had time to get
the morsel down. The snake struggled
first to complete its meal, in order to
get in its fine work on Mr. Watson, and
then, failing in that, tried to disgorge
the rabbit, but before it could accom
plish its purpose was killed. Exchange.
Argentine a Good Market.
A settler in Diamante, Entre Rios, Ar

reaping machines and forty-five thrash
ing machines were received in that lo
cality last year, while the cost of the
twine used for binding wheat amounted
to $60,000, and estimates that this year
$150,000 worth of twine will be used.
He says that the settlers this year will
need 600,000 bags. Within the last two
months Diamante has purchased $582,
000 worth of agricultural machinery.
The yield of wheat during the past sea
