The Mew Tnanrr Notes.
Perhaps the principal object of the re
vision or me united States paper money
is to make the backs of the notes more

longer has the two threads of silk run
ning longitudinally through the note,
but in their place are two strines. each
half an inch wide or so, of short red and
blue silk fibers scattered thickly in the
paper, in such manner that they show
only on the reverse of the bill.
These two filer stripes practically di-
viu ine noie into three sections of about
equal size, and this feature of fiber in
the paper is held to bo. an almost abso
lute safeguard against successful coun
terfeiting. But that is only one of sev
erai aevices employed to insure tl
inviolability of the currency.

Rough on the Snakes.
O !, ,
wriia are aiways in oraer m

iuo Biiring, ana tne latest one comes
from an interior town in Ohio, where
tne heat from the stove awakened the
reptiles and they commenced to fall to
the floor from holes in the ceiling. John
Thompson, who lives in the Cheat river
country, was in the city yesterday buy
ing provisions for a lumber camp. He
tells a tale that is not unreasonable and
one can readily believe it.
The mountains along the Cheat are
famous for their blacksnakes, and they
can be seen at any time during the day
in the summer snnning themselves on
the rocks. JVIr. Thompson says when
the weather suddenly broke up about
April 1 and led a number of people to
throw off their underclothes, the black
snakes awoke with a start, rubbed their
eyes and crawled out on the rocks to
stretch themselves. The sun was so
warm that many of them ventured far
Away from .their winter homes, and
wnen it suddenly got cold again the
snakes couldn't get back. 31 r. Thomi-
son claims lie got tired of killing black
snakes which were so stiff that they
couiunt move. They were stretched
out on the stones, and were at the mercy
or tne lumbermen, who amused them
selves making the flat heads of the
snakes more flat. This is a true story.
Nearly 100,000,000 a Tear.
Mr. James Wright, second vice presi
dent of the Inznan line, says that when
the end of 192 comes at least 100,000
people will have left for Europe from
all parts of this country during the
year. Half of them will sail during the
fifteen weeks of the season, fum April
to August. Some travelers will carry
hundreds of dollars in their pocketbooks
to spend where others carry thousands.
Nine-tenths of those hundreds and thou
sands will be transferred to foreign own
ers before the tourists return.
Even the money 8tent for nassairo and
during the voyages must be counted in
that which bids goodbv to this bind of
liberty, for the great steanishin compa
nies are, with one exception, foreiim
colorations. Including tips and fees
-'" viinMituoiis win taKe an average
of 1(K from
round trip. The maioritv will ruiv 1pr
but there will be enouirh rich men who
who pay a good deal more to bring the
mean amount up to that fignre.
lTie money which each tourist carries
with him is harder to estimate. A for
eign exchange clerk said that the letters
of credit issued by them to European
travelers average about 600. or fci.000
each; but this is above the ordinary fig
ure, and of course this in many cases
covers a party of four or five. Eiclit
hundred dollars is estimated as the aver
age amount taken by each passenger in
the cabin. This makes the total average
expenditure of the average European
traveler 960. When this is multinlied
by the estimated total of these travelers
the result is astounding.
It is $96,000,000.
Ninety-six millions of dollars carried
from America to Europe in a single year
by travelers alone! If this were saved
for a few years Uncle Sam might buy. a
good slice of Europe and bring it over
here for exhibition Durooaes. New

A Woma'i Strange Death.

Wednesday. Martha Roundtree, the
well known negro woman who kept a
restaurant at the south end of Main
street, now occupies a grave at the ceme
tery, the result of a sneeze. The phy
sicians of Dawson say that they have
never heard or read of a similar cose.
Wednesday the woman, as well as usual,
was. at the restaurant attending to her
work. She had just left the rear of her
eating saloon and walked to the front
when 6he was attacked with an exces
sive spell of Kneezrng and coughing.
She had been afflicted with hernia, and
the strain was so great as to burst a hole
in her stomach. Surgical aid was called
in and her stomach sewed up, which
gave temporary relief. She lingered
until late Saturday afternoon, when hr
died. The victim of tbis remarkable i
currence was a large woman, weighi:

The Lenten offerings of the Sunday
school children of the Protestant Episco
pal church throughout the United States
thus far received in behalf of the gener
al board of missions are largely in excess
of those for the same period in 1891. In
the two weeks immediately succeeding
Easter 1,137 Sunday schools sent in 26.-
699, and it is believed a total of $100,000
will have been received when all of the
4,000 schools in the country shall have
been heard from. This ie double the
sum donated last year.
The Lenten Sunday school offering is
a feature of the work of the board of
missions. Just before Lent this rear the
board sent a package of folding paste
board savings banks to each Sunday
school superintendent for distribution
among his pupils for the reception of the
children's savings during the fasting sea
son. No sooner had Easter passed than the
little banks began to arrive at the offices
of the board in the Bible House.
The twenty-five young women in Bish
op Leonard's school in Reno, Nev., sent
$250. One school sent in 5,000 pennies
and another 10,000 pennies.
It will be July before all the returns
will have been received. New York
Big Sheep Shearing.
Sheep shearing is ntw being pushed
rapidly, and most of tfart flocks in the
valley have been shorn of their fleecy
coats. Some big records have been
made in shearing, but the ten men
headed by O. H. Lane seem to take the
lead. They clipped 42,00 fleeces in six
weeks. The best record for a single day
was made by Ct. O. Meiger and L.
Palmer, who sheared 155 each. Lane
will start in a few -days fcr Flagstaff.
where he and his band have work al
ready engaged to last three months.
The clip this season is unusually good,
although the early winter drought killed
off a large percentage of flocks. Han
son Brothers, of Show Low, were among
the heavy losers, having lost $10,000
worth of sheep by death and .trays.
Haesalsy'i Birth nli
Rothley Temple, Lord Macaulav's
birthplace, is for sale by public auction.
It is an old manor house, some six miles
from Leicester, and there the historian
was born at the end of the year 1800. It
cannot be said that Rothley Temple de
rived more than nominal luster from
the association, for Macaulay left Leices
tershire before he had left infancy.
and Birchin Lane, in the city, was the
home of his earliest childhood. Instead
of a manorial park he had Drapers' gar
dens for a playground, until he went to
live in the old High street at Clanham.
The Leicestersliire manor, however.
has many historical interests besides this
one, and a Thirteenth century chapel of
the Knights Templars is attached to the
estate. It is a wealthy manor, too, for
900 acres produce 2,000 of annual rent;
and, moreover, it is at the headquarters
of the famous Quorn Hunt, and in the
heart of some famous scenery. London

Dr. Thresh, the medical officer for the

returns of the late epidemic of influenza,
estimates that no less than 540 persons
died under the immediate attack, and
that no fewer than 1,400 deaths occurred
m tne county from its direct or indirect
influence. The monetary loss for the
two months during which the epidemic
prevailed be states at no less than 50.-
000, on the basis of tlie loss of wages of
adults calculated at twelve shillings a
week. He adds: "I am, however, afraid
that had the county suffered from an
epidemic among cattle, causing in the
time the same number of deaths and in
dicating the same iecuniary loss, the
alarm produced would have been greater
