One Tear's Sale of Stamps.
The number of postage stamps used
in a year is something enormous. For
instance, the ordinary postal revenue for
the year ending June 30, 1891, exclusive
of the money order business, was $G3,
063,293.87. Of this fl 1,432, 129. 50 came
from letter postage. The bulk of this
is of course in two cent stamps, and it
is safe to put the whole number of this
denomination used at more than two
billions per annum. Kate Field's Wash

It is just a Lumlred years since Wil

an iron tube coining from the kettle.

A Wonderful Music Itox.
An interesting arrangement of pneu
matic mechanism for the production of
high class music has recently been ex
hibited. The instrument has two and
one-fifth sets of reeds, the regular action
of the air grooves being located above,
and on top of the board containing these
is a row of small pneumatics correspond
ing in number to the keys of tho instru
ment; underneath this board are font
rows of large pneumatics, one beueat L
the other, and from an ana on each ol
these pneumatics hangs a wire attached
to a lever operating on the coupler but
tons on tho pitinans or wooden r ;:
connecting the keys of the instrmiKi..
with the reed board valves.
By means of these lovers, operated
by pneumatics, the movement of the
valves becomes automatic, subject t
the passage over tho air board of perfo
rated paper. A peculiar characteristic
of the motor which operates the music
roll, which distinguishes it from all
other appliances of the kind, is it
adaptabilitj to running to the right to
wind music and the left to rewind, 01
vice versa. When the instrument is in
operation the keyboard becomes a thing
of life keys dropping with the exact
rapidity required by the selection ren
dered. Philadelphia Ledger.

A LKCiAL INCIDENT.
A TRAGIC ENDING OF AN UNJUST
What Strnog Circumstantial Evidence
Ilil in tho Case of a Trusted Clerk.
He Hied When Ho Learned That He
Was Innocent Ilefnre the Law.
The following thrilling story comes
from tho lips of a well known member
of the Pennsylvania bar:
A very bad and disjlunst failure had
occurred, in which tf certain trusted
clerk seemed to have been guilty of the
larger share of the crime. He, with his
employer, was arrested and charged
with the crime. The clerk stunt ly pro
tested his innocence and denied all
knowledge of the fraud or ai)3" connec
tion with his employer.
However, there was a chain of cir
cumstantial evidence woven around him
which was exceptionally strong and
which his counsel could not break down,
although he was firmly convinced him
self of his innocence. The clerk was
convicted and sent to jail for a term of
Alter being confined in prison for
alxmt a 3-ear the poor fellow's mind be
gan to weaken, and fiiiall' he broke
down complete-. He was taken from
prison and transferred to a hospital fo
the insane. All the time the clerk en:
tinned to protest his innocence. Al'ti
he had been confined in the hospii
three or four 3-ears, certain facts in t;
failure were elicited which clearly prov
that tho unfortunate clerk was entire!
innocent of having committed anj- crinn
Of course steps were immediately,
taken to secure the pardon of tho man:
the facts were laid before the pardon
board at their next meeting and an order
was given for his immediate release.
It now became the delicate duty of
the counsel in the case to break the
happy intelligence to the pardoned clerk.
But the question tnut confronted them
was what could be done to restore his
reason, and would he believe the news?
If his mind could not bo restored he
could not be taken awaj What could
be done? After a consultation between
the counsel on both sides of the case it
was agreed to call upon the ioor clerk
and make an attempt to rouse him from
the apathy and lethargy into which he
had fallen. This the- decided to do b
accusing him again of the theft of the
funds. Whenever this subject was
broached he always roused himself and
becauiti greatly wuimarred, alwayv vigor
ously denj-ing it. ' ...
While his mind was aroused hy this
stimulus it had been decided that one of
the counsel was to announce that the
matter had been fullj' investigated and
his innocence fully established. The
parties to this strange drama assembled
10. the room of the- stricken man. He
sat silent and immovable, with his head
in his hands.
As the old and ever rankling charge
of dishonest- fell upon his ears the ef
fect was exactly that which had been
foreseen and expected. Ho slowly raised
his head. Locking his pseudo accuser
straight m the eye he repeated, in a
loud tone of voice, with a rising iuflec
tion and with great energj-, "It is a lie."
The critical moment had come. The
lawyer who had prosecuted him ami se
cured his incarceration then stepped up
to him and said: "You are right. It is a
lie, and you stand before the community
a vindicated man. I have the order for
3-our release in mj- pocket."
Then the lawj-ers stood off to watch
the effect, hoping that the joj- at the
prospect of release and vindication would
have the effect of putting the clerk again
in his right mind. But no sign of jo'
overspread the man's features. His face
bore its usual stolid expression. It
seemed to have no apparent effect upon
The clerk turned his face toward the
speaker, as if he did not understand him.
Then Ins head fell forward, and the man
was precipitated upon the floor at the
feet of the lawyers. A single glance
sufficed. He was dead. Green Bag.
A Wooden Statue in Tokio.
In Tokio, the capital of Japan, there
exists a gigantic statue of a woman,
made of wood and plaster and dedicated
to Hachiman, the god of war. In height
it measures fift3--four feet; the head
alone, which is reached by a winding
stairway in the interior of the figure,
being large enough to comfortablj- hold
twenty persons. The figure holds a
huge wooden sword in one hand (the
blade of the weapon being twenty-seven
feet long) and a ball twelve feet in
diameter in the other.
Internally the figure is fitted up with
an extraordinary anatomical arrange
ment, supjKised to represent the differ
ent portions of the brain. A fine view
of the count r- is obtained by looking
through one of the eyes of the statue.
Too Much of a Good Thing:.
A French paper relates that Baron de
Lutz, late prime minister of the king of
Bavaria, was much addicted to shroud-
g all his actions in mystery. Having,
seriously hurt both his legs on one occa

each of his injured limbs. The one who
treated the right leg was totally un
aware that a fellow practitioner had
been called in for the left one, and vice
