He then lighted the fuse connected

to cut off one, but the others were too

to give the signal to ascend and get int

When the United States practice ship
Constellation sailed on tho cadets' sum
mer voj-age Monday afternoon it had
aboard a numljer of homing pigeons,
to be used as means of communication
between the ship and points ashore. The
birds will be liberated at intervals, and
are exacted to bring official messages
from the practice vessel to the naval
academy, where a loft or cote has re
cently been established.
If the experiment should prove suc
cessful the government will probabl'
find it profitable to the navy to encour
age the homing pigeon service with the
small appropriation needed to carrj' out
the plans of the projectors of the enter
prise. At present the facilities for
training birds at the naval academy are
limited, no government appropriation
being available. At Fortress Monroe,
the first stopping place of the ship, it is
possible several trained birds from Bal
timore, Philadelphia and New York will
be taken aboard and later dispatched
with information from the cruising
grounds. The headquarters at Wash
ington will also be posted of the where
abouts of the vessel through winged
messengers from that city. A loft of
birds to accompany the ship will no
doubt be sufficiently trained toward the
close of the voyage to be useful in con
veying messages ashore. Annapolis

No "Reversing" In Fashionable Dancing.
I am about to give society here and
the leaders of the german at watering
places this summer a bit of fashionable
intelligence which I know will be star
tling in the extreme. The fiat has gone
out in the best London and Continental
society that the "reverse" in the valse
shall no longer be permitted. This re
form seems to have been originated by
the Prince of Wales, and of course it
was immediately taken up by the small
er fashionables in London. The ill na
tured say his royal highness never did
dance well in his golden 3'outh, and
that since he has come to a liberal ro
tundity of belt, or, in other words,
grown fat, his dancing is simply execra
ble. He always had great difficulty iti
'doing the reverse" in the waltz, and
now that he cannot do it all he puts the
ban of his disapproval on it. Hereafter
there is to be no "reversing" at the state
balls or at an' dances which are hon
ored by the royal presence. The fact is,
the "reverse" was hardly ever seen on
the other side of the water at any time,
and now having the positive disapproval
of "the first gentleman of England" it
will disappear for good. Lounger in
Church Pillars in a Scrap.
A good thing has just leaked out con
cerning a church fair held in Utica not
very long ago. When the booths were
being put in position two men had a dis
agreement as to what position in the
hall a certain booth should occupy. It
was a small matter of course, but each
disputant was sure he was right. There
was a war of words, and one invited the
other outside to settle the difficulty.
Those who witnessed the settlement said
that it was unique and amusing. Which
party set the ball rolling will never be
known. There was a swish of fists in
the air, two angrj grunts, a sprinkling
of blood from two damaged nasal ap
pendages, a whirl of arms and legs, and
the booth builders rolled over one an
other in the mud. Two sorry looking
pillars of the church they were when
separated aud sent home to recuperate.
The booth went up, but whether its po
sition was mutually satisfactory has not
been learned. Utica Observer.
Mr. Epstein Held Four Aces.
Burt Seiger, hailing from St. Louis,
was yesterday afternoon bunkoed out
of $100 on a poker hand, and James
Cary, Charles Kline aad Isaac Epstein
were arrested on the charge of operating
a confidence game. The four men were
on an incoming Missouri Pacific train
and were indulging in a quiet game of
euchre for points. During the progress
of the game Epstein remarked that he
held a good poker hand. At this Seiger
said he also held a good poker hand, and
proposed that the game be turned from
euchre to poker, which was accordingly
done and the cigars bet. From cigars
for the crowd the stakes grew to a box,
and from a box of cigars to five dollars.
Continuing at this rate, the neat bet of
$ 160 all Seiger had was made and the
turn called. Seiger held four kings and
Mr. Epstein four aces. Kansas City
A Pretty Big Fourteen-year-old.
The youngest soldier in the British
army, Private Defries, aged fourteen
years and six months, is a fine child for
his age. He is close upon 5 feet 5
inches in height, with a chest measure
ment of 33 inches, and weighs 126
pounds. It is no wonder, therefore,
that the military authorities should
have enlisted him without a demur
when he told them that he was over
eighteen. His father now seeks to have
him discharged on account of his tender
j-ears; but the war office, not unreason
ably, holds that the onus lies upon him
to prove that his son is the lusus natura?
he would make him out. In other
words, the condition of his discharge is
the production of a certificate of age
and very right. London Globe.

In Germany the law of compulsory
insurance against old ago and infirmity,
passed in June, completes the pro
gramme of legislation for improving the
condition of tho working c lasses which
was set fortli in the imperial rescript of
1881. It affects more than 13,000,000
people, giving them an inalienable legal
claim to support in cases of infirmity
and in old ago.
Tho insurance is compulsory in all in
dustrial occupations ujKin persons over
sixteen 3-ears of age of both sexes.
Clerks and tradesmen's apprentices who
do not earn more than $500 a 3-ear also
participate, but assistants and appren
tices in druggists' shops are excluded.
Exemption from compulsory insurance
is granted to persons who work for
food, clothes and lodging only, and who
receive no pay, or who are only in tem
The pension for old age varies from
about twentj'-five dollars to fifty dollars
a j'ear, and is granted to every insured
jierson who has completed his seventieth
3'ear, irrespective of his ability to earn a
livelihood, provided ho does not alread'
draw a pension for infirmity. The in
firmity pension varies from about twenty-seven
dollars to over a hundred dol
lars, and is given, irrespective of age, to
persons who are permanently incapaci
tated from earning a living.
In order to establish a claim to a pen
sion under the German law, contribu
tions, regulated by the amount of earn
ings, must be paid for a prescribed
period. The means of paying pensions
are obtained by fixed contributions from
the imperial treasury, added to regular
payments on the part of the emploj-ers
and emplo3-ed. Youth's Companion.
The Blood Circulates Rapidly.
Medical workers have made many cu
rious experiments, but none more won
derful than that by which they ascer
tained the exact time required for the
blood to make one entire trip through
the system, which all students of physi
ology know means a complete circula
tion through the lungs, veins, arteries
and general capillary arrangements.
Professors Dalton, Hering, Poissenille,
Matteucci and Blake have been the chief
investigators in this line, the first named
having become more eminent in this
particular branch of research froii
having the experience of the others to
fortify himself with. All the old school
anatomists believed that a considerable
time elapsed, say from three to nine
miirutes, from the time when the blood
left the right side of the heart, traversed
the whole system and then again re
turned to the starting point; Dalton has
shown that the time is much shorter
than was formerly generally supposed.
He says: "Dozens of carefully tabu
lated tests of this somewhat extraordi
nary subject shows that the blood of
man makes a complete circulation once
every fifteen to twentj'-five seconds, ac
cording to the phjsical conditions of the
subject experimented upon." St. Louis
Remarkable are two epitaphs, the first
of which is said to be upon a tombstone
in the city of Sacramento: "Here is laid
Daniel Borrow, who was born in Sorrow,
and Borrowed little from Nature except
his name and his love to mankind and
hatred to redskins; who was neverthe
less a gentleman and a dead shot; who,
through a long life, never killed his
man except in self defense or by acci
dent, and who, when he at last went
under, beneath the bullets of his cow
ardly enemies in the saloon of Jeff Mor
ris, did so in the sure and certain hope
of a glorious and everlasting Morrow."
The other, which belongs to a Nevada
burying place, is a noteworthy achieve
ment in this line. "Sacred to the
Memory of Hank Monk the Whitest,
Biggest-hearted, and Best-known Stage
driver of the West; who was kind to All
and Thought 111 of None. He Lived in
a Strange Era, and was a Hero, and the
Wheels of his Coach are now Ringing on
Golden Streets." Chambers' Journal.
Philadelphia pretzels are a thing by
themselves; that is, the genuine Phila
delphia pretzel is, but unscrupulous
manufacturers have been making imi
tations with machinery which have
served to lessen the high standard raised
by the reputation of the homemade
pretzel. The pretzel came over with
the Dutch, and it is still found in its
original purity in Lancaster and Berks
counties, the inhabitants of which have
been so many generations in this coun
try that the' are unable to epeak their
mother tongue. They have not been
here long enough to learn English, so
they make their pretzels as they were
taught, and talk the language which
they have manufactured. New York
Soapsuds Are Valuable.
Few persons know how ver3' useful
soapsuds prove when einplojTed as ma
nure. Applied to the roots of vines,
fruit trees, roses, etc., they impart a
vigor and rapidity of growth which is
perfectly surprising. No one who is so
lucky as to have a garden should waste
this-valuable form of manure. It is an
excellent plan to have a large tub, and
put the soapsuds and dirty water into ii
till required upon the garden. Phila
Creede, Colo., is not yet nine montb3
