According to the census of 1890,
Chicago takes rank, by virtue of her
population of 1,098,576 people, as the
eighth -largest city on the globe.
Most of us desire, at one time or
another, to visit a city in which so
many persons find homes, and,
when we do, we can find no better
line than the "Burlington Route."

Mr. Van Pelt, editor of the Craig.
Mo., Meteor, went to a drug store at
Hillsdale, Iowa, and asked the phy

dose of something for cholera mor
bus and looseness of the bowels.
He says: "I felt so much better the
next morning that I concluded to
call on the physician and get him
to tix me up a supply of the medi
cince. I was surprised when he
handed me a bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Reme

larly in his practice and found it
the best he could get or prepare. I
can testify to its efficiency in my
case at all events." For sale by b.

An Amendment Offered to the Advice of
m Woman Lecturer.
A few evenings ago a Boston woman
journalist, who writes the essays about
bookmarks, gluten bread, dress reform
correts ana tne lice ror the woman a
column of a Sunday paper, read a lec
ture to a parlor f nil of Harlem women.
Her subject was "How to Bring Up
Une thing mat sne insisted on was
that children should be taught to "do
thinRS, to be prepared for emergencies.
"For example, said she, "I would
teach a child what to do in case of
fainting fit. I say to my girls:
44 4Uirls, I am not much of a hand at
fainting, but if I do take a notion to
faint some day when you are about, get
me some water. I'onr it on my head
and face. Cold water, girls, not hot
"I m sure that if the unexpected
comes, and I fall in a fainting fit some
fine morning, the girls, if they happen
to be near, will know what to do and
wiU do it promptly."
"May I interrupt you for a moment?"
asked a little brown haired woman, who
evoked to be about fifty.
"Why, certainly," answered the lec
"Well, what J wish to do," said the
brown haired woman, "is to take issue
with you on this proposition of yours
that it is the proper thing to instruct
children what to do fto their mothers
when they faint. On other points I have
nothing to say. Maybe you are right in
the general proposition that children
should be taught to do things, but as to
this matter I wish to utter a warning
word, to offer an amendment, so to
"I used to tUink as you do. I remem
ber as well as can be how I used to tell
my girl9 to do the very thing that you
say you told yours to do. I thought as
you do, that it would be a shame to
leave any person who bhould faint in
the presence of my girls go without
proper care. So T ise& to ray: 'Remem
ber, giis, to use water. That's the
thins when a baby faints.'
-Well, one day some 0113 came to my
nouse ana told me that a little boy had
been hurt in the next yard. I was al
most ill at the time, but just the same I
rushed out to the scene. The little chap
was badly hurt, and it took me quite
awhile to get him in such a way that I
could safely Ieae mm. But the time
came at last, and I started for home.
4When I was within about a rod of
my own house I grew dizzy and saw
stars and then fell in a heap in the
"A couple of Irishmen picked me up,
eacn taking an arm, ana dragged me
up my front steps and laid me out on
the piazza. Then they rang the bell
and when my daughter Isabelle came to
the door one of them pointed at me and
44 'Good avenin, miss, an is that yer
mother there, lyin all in a hape dead
fainted away
"Isabelle gave one look and then
called out to her -two sisters, 'Quick,
girls, ma's fainted.' .
"'After that the deluge.' Yes, that
tells the story.- Isabelle got 'the. ice
pitcher, Mary a foot tub and Kate a ten
quart tin pail. I consider it almost a
miracle that I'm alive today.
"Of course I'm telling, all this from
hearsay. I didn't know anything from
the time .that I fainted until I heard
Kate frantically crying out: 'Water!
More water! Quick, Isabelle, more wa
ter: and just after that one of the Irish
men saying, 'Be aisy, darlint, or ye'll be
aftor drownin yer ould motherf
"Wet! Well, that doesn't besin to tell
the story. I waa soaked, and great
streams of water were" running off the
piazza and down the stairs.
"oudid just right girls, I said as
soon as I could speak. '.You did just
what j-onr mother told jou to do, but
don't do it again.'
"Then I got down on my knees and
wrung out my skirts as well as I could
and while I was in that position I could
hardly keep myself from saying, 'Oh
Lord, I thank thee that ther didn't call
out the fire department.'
"aow, I've taken up lots of your time.
but I wished to make an amendment to
your proposition. What I would pro
pose is that every mother save her own
self from the danger of drowning by
6aying to her girls when she bids them
pour water on 'fainters,' 'Be sure mv
dears to try the remedy for the first
time on somebody else than your own
dear mamma.' " New York Times.
Millions of IlAlltri Invested la Its Man
ufacture Im the United States.
Very few people have a correct idea
of what dynamite is, of what it is made
and the uses to which it is put. To the
French belongs the honor of its discov
ery and it practical use.
Nitroglycerin is the force of all high
explosives. Dynamite is the name most
usually given to these explosives, though
other names are sometimes used.
Dynamite is simply nitroglycerin
mixed with various ingredients. Nitro
glycerin is made by mixing sulphuric
and nitric acid with sweet glycerin,
the same that is used by the ladies to
prevent chapped hands. Mixing the
acids and glycerin is where the great
danger lies in the making of nitro
glycerin. The mixing tank, or agita
tor, as it is called by dynamite makers,
is'a large steel tank, filled inside with
many coils of lead pipe, through which,
"vhile the mixing is in progress, a con
stant flow of ice water is maintained.
This flow of ice water is used to keep
the temperature of the mix below
83 degs., as above that point it
would explode, and a hole In the
ground would mark where the factory
had been. The nitroglycerin is stored
in large earthenware tanks, which ar
usually sunk in the ground to guard
against blows or severe concussion.
The other ingredients for making
dynamite are, nitrate of soda (which is
found only in Chili), carbonate of mag
nesia and wood pulp.
Dynamite is put in paper shells usually
1 inches in diameter and 8 inches in
length, and weighs about one-half pound
to each shell or cartridge. It has largely
taken the place of black powder for
blasting, as it is many hundreds of times
stronger, and consequently more eco
nomical. It is used chiefly in mining all
kinds of ores, coal and rock, and sub
marine blasting and railroad building.
Without its aid many railroads, espe
cially those crossing the Rocky moun
tains, could not have been constructed;
without it Hell Gate, in New York har
bor, could not have been destroyed, and
without it the miner, at prices now paid
for mining ores, could not earn his
Dynamite will not explode from any
ordinary fall or jar. It will burn with
out explosion and freezes at 43 degs., 10
degs. above ordinary freezing point.
The bomb is made of metal or glass and
filled with pure nitroglycerin arranged
so as to explode by severe contact with
any hard object.. . These bombs are of
course never made by a reputable dyna
mite factory.
Five or six millions of dollars are in
vested in the manufacture of dynamite
in the United States, and its use is con
stantly on the increase. The fumes of
nitroglycerin produce intense headache,
which can be cured by taking a very
small dose of it internally. Detroit Free

A Logician Out of Plaee.
A gentleman who stood a few mo
ments at a corner where, a large build
ing was in process of erection overheard
some remarks made by an Irish- work
man who evidently fancied himself a
logician of no mean order.
He was a sturdy, good natured look
ing man, but evidently enjoyed leaning
on his hod and commenting on what
passed around him much better than he
did active work." r The cry of "mort
mort'' . usually rang- out several times
before he heeded it. . -
"Pat," said the foreman ' severely,
coming upon the man at one of the
moments when he was "restin a bit,"
'why don't you attend to your work
and keep that man going?"
"Shure, now," said Pat, shifting his
feet and turning a broad smile upon the
foreman, "if I was to kape him goin he
wouldn't have sorra a thing to .say at
all; an if he didn t say annything, how
would I know he was there? An if he
wasn't there f what-would he be wantin
of morther, sorr?"
And Pat marched off with his hod.
leaving the foreman not convinced, but
certainly .confused by this remarkable
exhibition of the workings of a logical
mind. Youth s Companion.
IV ailed Cities ef Italy.
Necessarily the romantic and histor
ical charm of English walled cities is
but small compared with that of conti
nental cities. The walls of Rome, for
instance, are standing monuments of
the city's history from the earliest time
to within- the last half oentury; but
owing to the extraordinary character
and variety of other antiquarian objects,
they hardly come in for that share of
the visitor's attention which they de
serve. Yet an inspection of them, with
their ancient and medieval gates, the
many styles of their construction, each
pointing to a particular period of their
history, their size and strength, their
odd little nooks and corners and their
pictureaquenesn, is worth a journey,
which convinces the stranger that they
would form the cldef attraction of any
other city but Rome.
Indeed, as is not surprising, Italy is a
nest of ancient walled towns, and we
may note all degrees of grandeur, from
the still formidable looking zonen which
surround Genova La Soperba or Firenze
La Bella to the quaint little lines of
fortifications which zigzag up the vine
clad hillsides of the north coast of the
Mediterranean, surrounding in many in
stances mere villages, but speaking elo
quently to us of those hard, stirring
times when the hand of every man was
against his neighbor. Cor. Chicago Her
ald. Persian Swords.
The swords of Hindostan are of end
less variety in size and shape, the most
common being the "tegha" and "tal
war," broad, much curved blades, wrong
ly styled scimitars, the real scimitar
being a clumsy chopperlike weapon,
nearly straight and widening to the
point. There is the "khanda," a heavy
straight sword with basket hilt, like the
Scottish claymore. The khanda was an
object of worship to the Rajputs, pre
cisely as to the Scythians. The "pata,"
or gauntlet sword, much used by the
Mahrattas, was a development of the
"katar," having a long rapier blade,
often of Spanish make, and a cylindrical
hilt, into which the arm was passed to
the elbow. The Persian sword, how
ever, was valued above all others, and
particularly those of Khorassan.
These are the real "Damascus blades,"
the damascening being produced by the
crystallization of the steel. Connois
seurs recognize ten different varieties of
watering or "jauhar;" and the most in
credible prices have been given for
fancy specimens. But the great brittle
ness of these swords makes them unfit
for use by Europeans, who would shiver
them to pieces by a "swashing blow,
wmieqv oriental employs tneir razor
edge only for the "drawing" cut.

Telling; About IU
An old lady is said to have been asked
how to tell good indigo. "Powder the
indigo," said she, "sprinkle it upon cold
water, and if it is good it will either
sink or swim, I have forgotten which."
It was the same with Aunt Charity's
"Jest take a dozen of 'em no, a half
a dozen of 'em no, it's a dozen well,
raaly, I can't say, but it's either a dozen
or a half dozen and you put 'em in a

no, it s a pailful no well, well, it's
either a pailful or a half nailful of
water and the good eggs will swim

to the bottom no, that's not it
the good eggs will swim no, no, I
delare, I don't raaly know, but, anyway,
the good eggs will either sink or swim."

A Lightning Calculator.
Professor Truman Henry Safford. of
Williams college, is one of the most re
markable lightning calculators now liv
ing. A gentleman who had heard of
his power and wished to test it said to
him one day: "I have a little problem
for you, Professor Safford. I was born
Aug. 15, 1852, at 3 o'clock Jn the after-
rm 1- ma . .
noun, .mis une zu, 1883, and it is
just 3 o'clock. Now, can you tell me
my age in seconds?" The great man
frowned, bent his head, and began to
walk rapidly up and down, twisting his
mustache and clasping and unclasping
his hands in his nervous way. After a
moment or so he returned the answer,
which was somewhere in the billions.
The gentleman produced a paper con
taining the problem worked out, and
said, with a superior smile, "Well, pro
fessor, IU give you credit for great ge
nius, but you re several thousand out."
The professor stretched out his hand for
the paper, and running over the calcu
lation, said contemptuously: "Humph!
You've left out the leap years." Boston

People often ask what is the use of the
abstract studies scientific men and worn
en often indulge in. The reply is you
must first discover a new truth before
you can tell whether you can make any
value of it. The valuable discovery
mat me Diaoic rot can be prevented from
injuring grapes by inclosing the bunch
in a paper bag is the direct result of
scientific studies.
When it was found that the rot was
caused by a fungus growing from a lit
tle seed or spore which, floating through
the atmosphere, attaches itself to the
grape berry, it was the easiest thing to
tnink: or putting bags over the bunch
early in the season so that the spore
couldn't get there. Hundreds of thou
sands of dollars have been saved to the
cultivator by this bagging of crapes
which would have been totally lost but
for the labors of scientific men. Mee-
