A Tribute to Whllmaa.
It was a pretty Bight to see the contin
ual cIuaUTof j"i1 in front of a Broarl
way window opposite Union square, for
the window contained the jortrait of
tho -fray po.-t," tlie- l.ito Walt
Whitman, ami at tho tiiin all that wiia
mortal of him w;w lxin Itorne to tho
Jittlo tomhof his own wl?rtkm. Thia
wan thn tribute of tho iciasing throng to
hw immortality. All day long tho jeo

a certain Wuliiiitoii ntnmtf.nr driver,

might reasonably envy that car driver,
who was not only jN-niiittMl to lovo and
havo tho companionship of tho jioet, but
was liim.H. lf liihly esteemed for what
ho was. Thy were often seen walking
in tho lleM.s and wxl.s together.

An .Automatic Cutout.
An new design in automatic cntonta
for electric lighting instruments has re
cently been brought out. Tho instru
ment is bo arranged that the current
iwusaing through tho nolenoid attracts a
core which is attached to an arm about
which it swings. When the current ex
ceeds a certain limit the core is drawn
into the solenoid and raises a lever,
which in turn releases the switch and
opens the circuit. If, as in the case of
stationary motors supplied from central
stations, the current is suddenly cut off
when changing from one machine to
another, the circuit is automatically
opened by the tension spring which en
gages the small lever by withdrawing
the core from the solenoid and thereby
raising the lever, which releases the
switch the same as when overloaded.
The tension spring is so arranged that
it can be made to open the circuit for
any predetermined amount of current.
One of the main features of the cutout
is that it does away with all fuses.
which is usually a large item of expense
in central stations. It can readily be ap-
. plied to railroad circuits by using mag
netic blowouts at the switch contact.
The cutout has been given practical
tests and found to work very satisfac
torily. Aew York Telegram.
The Modern Ctrl Hotter Off.
There is no doolt that Maude's great
graiidmother would 1m shocked at the
"goings on of those latter days. The
old lady would faint at tho sight of hr
descendanta ways; but, after all, isn't
tho change for tho lie'tr? Certainly
tho dress Is l;tt r tha:i tho terrible
l.icing of revolutionary days, and if
Maude does go "low neck" to a ball, she
appears on the at.reet in a stout cloth
gown. How any woman ever lived t
lo thirty in yo olden tiino is a mystery.
Why, tho way they trainied about in no
sleeves and low necks and fasted them
selves then and fed (supiMtsedly) on
lilies is enough to inako a galloping con
sumptive invalid palo with envy.
Kvelena, pale and languid, read metry
all day, except when sho floated alout
like a sylph in the rose garden. It is
bad to rashly judge, but one s private
opinion is that tho aforesaid Evelena
had her chunk of lieef in the pantry.
Why did tvelena spend aJl day m a
rose garden? Was she stipjiosed to ba
studying tho beauties of nature, or had
tho old man really sent her out to spray
tho bugs off tho bushes?
Another weakness of Evelena's was
her relapsing on all occasions into
"Hoods of emotions and "tears of sweet
sensibility." In fact, ono is tempted to
lielieve that she wandered about clothed
in "her regal leauty" and an old pale
green calico wrapier. But one fails to
find a rea.-on for her "emotions."
Doubtless they were kept "on tap,"
and didn't lose their sparkle by frequent
turnings of the spigot. But it must
havo leen real uncomfortable to sit up
at night learning how to weep and faint
just at the right time.
But Maude irreverently thinks the
goings on" of her great maternal an
cestor a trifle stupid, and there is no
doubt that she finds the "healthy" fash
ion far more enjoj-able than the "d'ing-
m-leafy-June" style of beauty. Then
Maude walks, rides, drives, goes boat
ing and pla-s tennis till the blister on
her nose murmurs of "cold cream.
Still she enjoys it, and would you change
if you could? w ashington Post.

A Cow Killed try m Turtle.
One day last week Richard Mock, of
Miller county, after milking a fine milk
cow he owns turned her oat in the
woods, and she wended her way down
to Aycock's creek to slake her thirst
some time during the day, and while
engaged in drinking was seized by the
nose by a loggerhead turtle and her
head pulled under the water and held
there until she drowned.
Failing to return home that night.
Mr. Mock made search for her, and
found her lying with her head under the
water, her body on land, quite dead,
the turtle still having his hold. Mr.
Mock called help, and dragging the cow
out, drew the turtle out also, he refusing
to let go the cow's nose. The turtle was
killed and weighed fifty pounds, his
jhell being as large as a large bread
tray. Bainbridge (Ga.) Democrat.

In consequence of the enormous in
itial velocity of the bullet in the new
Mannlicher rille and the resulting fric
tion and wear on the barrel it has be
come necessary to devise some method
of preventing both these evils. The
manager of the government laboratory
at Than, Switzerland, has consequently
devised a metiiod of inclosing the leaden
bullet in a thin metallic covering, while
over this he places a wrapper of special
ly prepared oleaginous paper, which re
duces the wear of the rifle barrel to a
minimum without interfering with the
course of tho bullet. Philadelphia Record.
Tlie Oueen Jester.
The death of William Wallett. the
queen's jester, has probably brought
that office which, of course, was self
conferred to an end. He seems to have
been quite a fountain of humor in his
own person, for he was also the first
circus joker to entitle himself a "Shake
spearean clown!" This class is graver
and more sententious than the other,
and on the whole affects paterfamilias,
when he brings his children to see the
horsemanship, with a less excessive
melancholy. London Illustrated News.

There once lived in the City of Mexico
a Frenchman known as Otavito (little
Octave), whose rogueries kept the town
in a ferment. At one time he claimed
to have discovered a specific for the re
juvenescence of women, and by means
of sensational advertising he succeeded
in gathering a clientele of forty or fifty
ancient dames, who were assembled, on
a certain day, in a long sala, tricked out
with astrological symbols, crucibles,
alembics and all the paraphernalia of
charlatanry. The conjurer presented
himself before the ladies and addressed
them in flamboyant language, ending as
follows: "And now, senoras of my soul,
it is needful that the mystic " ceremonies
before us be opened by the oldest one
among you." '
Then, addressing her whose appear
ance seemea to - indicate priority, he
asked her age. Thirty-seven years,
senor, simpered the beldame, who was
at least in the seventh decade. "And
you, senora?" "Thirty-six." And so en.
until he had got them down to a de
clared age of twenty years, with a maxi
mum of thirty-seven. "Well, ladies all,
you perceive that without further pro
ceedings the miracle is accomplished,"
said Otavito, "for the least eallant of
men could not call her anght but young
whose years are but thirty-seven and
you see for yourselves that is the age of
the oldest among your San Francisco
Physicians and Their Drugs.
The active competition for a living
that the physician in New York has to
encounter has resulted in a curious
method for stimulating trade. There
are doctors in this city, graduates in due
form and no doubt in many cases men
of ability, who remit all fees for consul
tation, relying on the profits they obtain
from the medicines they prescribe for
emolument. Certain standard prescrip
tions they have put up in quantities, aud
these they sell directly to the patient.
Where a prescription has to be com
pounded the patient is sent to a certain
drug store, at which the doctor has an
arrangement for his commissions.
. Between these two devices the prac
titioner really captures a reasonable fee,
and ho gets it, moreover, in cash, where
he otherwise might have to give credit,
with a strong show of loss, for though
patients will not dream of demanding
credit for medicines, they make very
small txnes about leaving the doctor's
bill unpaid once he has permitted them
to run it up. New York Cor. Pittsburg
