What Mas lleeome of the PbonegrraphT
What haa become of Eklison's phono
jrraph? This is on of the moat mysteri
ous dinapparanonH of modern times. A
few years ago it was annonnced that the
famous American inventor had perfected
this instrument, and some public experi
ments that were given seemed to sup
port this view. A simple little appa
ratus, costing probably not more than a
sovereign to make, was made to repro
duce indefinitely any sound, even to a
grand instrumental performance that
had taken place in another hemisphere.
Various were the speculations as to the
manifold use of the new contrivance.
r nemlfl at a distance were to bear
each other's voices, messages could be
left at Tieople's houses which could not
possibly be ditttorted in the process of
passing through the mind of an un
tutored servant, business men could
quietly talk into a little trumpetlike
aierture and their clerks could hear
their actual instructions at any subse
quent jieriod. Up to now, however, we
have been doomed to disappointment.
Where is a phonograph to be bought? I
do not know, and none of my acquaint
ances seems better informed.
In France an article can bo patented
only on condition that it is bona fide and

A Limit to Ills Patience.
Saturday afternoon, when vehicles
were very thick on Washington street,
an old gentleman in a yellow varnished
straw hat with a wide curving brim
and clothes that had a rustic flavor, and
carrying an old black leather valise, sat
on an electric car from South Boston,
bound to the northern depots. As the
car passed Jordan & Marsh's the con
ductor called out, "Next stop Summer
and Winter!" The old gentleman turned
around, looking very much surprised.
"You don't say so!" he murmured tim-
laly. llie car went about two rods
farther and came to a dead stop.
There was a jam of teams ahead that
didn't seem likely to be broken for some
time. People began to get out and go
on afoot. The old gentleman sat still,
oui presently ne grew uneasy, in a
minute he grew uneasier still and con
sulted a large, open faced silver watch.
He waited about a minute longer, and
then he got up and began to climb down
on! the car.
"Look here!" he called out to the con
ductor, "I'm willin to stay with ye all
summer mebby, but I'll be cussed if I'll
set here all winter!"
And he went on down the street.

The Yorkshire Penny Bank.
"Take care of the pennies and the
pounds will take care of themselves" is
an old maxim of great truth. Exempli
fication is afforded in the case of the
Yorkshire Fonny Viank, whose trustees
have just laid the foundation clone of
magnificent new premises in Leeds. This
institution has now in its custody 1,440,-
000,000 or pence that is, just 6,000,000
of the savings of the people. In 1872
it had only 330,000. Meanwhile, that
the managers have found the busi
ness of "taking care of the pence," a
profitable one appears evident from the
fact that their reserve fund has risen
from 0,706 to 160,000.
The greater part of the money in
trusted to the bank by its depositors is
of course invested, and it is stated that
the bank has now 1,250,00Q out on
mortgages and over 4,500,000 in ne
gotiable securities, including 300,000
in consols. London Tit-Bits.
A Curious Inquest.
There is to be seen just now at the
South African general agency, at Cock-
spur srreet, snaring uross, a curious
collection of dried up or mummified bab
oons, taken from a cave near Cron-
6tadt, in the Orange Free State. They
have the skin on them still, and in two
instances the female has a young bab
oon clasped m its "arms," as if at
tempting to save it from some sudden
catastrophe. In the cave were also
found two human skulls, a dog's head,
a bird and the head of an antelope, all
imbedded in the wall of the cave and all
having the same appearance of great
agony or fright.
Several experts have examined the re
mains with a view of ascertaining, if
possible, the cause of death, the most
probable theory being a sudden flood.

A Deaf Woman on an Electrle Car.
An elderly lady who lives near At
lanta, is deaf. A few weeks ago she
rode on an electric car for the first
time in her life, and when she returned
home she declared that she could hear
perfectly while on an electric car. One
of the family went with her, boarded an
electric car and found that the elderly
iaay could hear perfectly.

Work of the Christian Bndeawor Societies.
Those who say there is nothing new
under the run would be sorely put
to it to find the counterpart of the Young
People s Societies of Christian Endeavor.
When, before this year of grace, has the
earth thrilled to the tread of 1,200,04)0
young ieople bound together with a
single pledge to do what? Pedal a bi
cycle or swing a tennis racquet? No; to
read the Bible and pray every day. to
take part regularly in prayer meeting,
support their own churches and engage
in active Christian enterprises. There's
a new aspect of young America for you!
Young America? I should rather say
Young World.
If any one thinks that Christianity is
senescent he has sufficient answer in
this army of 1,200 foil regiments. It is
marching with the steady swing of vet
erans, and yet with the buoyancy of
youth. Now and then an old Christian
shrugs his shoulders, "After us, the
deluge." True; a deluge of fresher vig
or, keener wits, stronger faith. Look at
the young people's religious societies of
this decade and you will have no fear
for the church of tha Twentieth century,
To one who believes all this it is in
deed astonishing that there are some
who never heard of the Christian En
deavor movement, who do not know
how, only eleven years ago last Febru
ary, from the elements of a revival in a
church in Maine, an earnest pastor and
faithful people, was crystallized this new
jewel cf the church s scepter, the Chris
tian Endeavor pledge. What was at
tractive about it? Where were the jokes,
the uniforms, the cake and candy, the
glitter and gayety that alone were sup
posed capable of drawing young people?
If for nothing else, the world owes this
movement its profound gratitude for
proving the deep seriousness of the
young. It used to be said, "Win them
by persons." Now it is said, "Win them
by principles." Ilarper's Weekly.
A Horse at Home In the Tree Tops.
We have been told of many ludicrous
scenes and incidents growing out of the
great flood of June 4, and ambitious re
porters have busted clouds and mill
dams, and almost ruined their imagina
tions in their frantic endeavors to gain
notoriety and fame in reportorial jour
nalism, but the incident we are about to
relate is true and told without hope of
reward. On the Sunday following the
flood, after the waters had subsided, L.
B. Preston, of Tryonville, discovered
that he was minus two horses, and of
course search was instituted for the lost.
" Near the village is a large wild grape
vine that winds affectionately around a
tree of good proportions with quite a
large spreading top, the vine, as is fre
quently the case, forming a sort of net
work among the branches; and there,
over ten feet from the ground, in the
protecting embraces of the tree top and
vine was found one of the lost horses
alive and safe. The animal was rescued

Why the Birds Were Lost.
A pigeon flying experiment at Tours
has ended m a most remarkable man
ner, proving the shocking fact that the
useful birds, in addition to beincr ex
cessively greedy, are also given to an
overindulgence in strong drinks. Four
ouuureu ana twenty-nine pigeons were

conveyed by train from Tours to La
Bohalle and there let loose. To the as
tonishment of the various societies in
terested in the experiment, only forty
returnea some, ana tnese were m a
dazed condition, and quite incapable of
hnding their respective quarters.
An inquiry resulted in the discovery
that at a roadside station a large con
signment of black currants had been
put into the same van as the birds. The
inebriating qualities of the currant
juice proved too much for the little trav
elers, and they were quickly in such a
condition that only a small Drooortion
were sober enough to find their way

A Strange Bird In the Pigeon's Nest.
Harry Francis, a boy of thirteen
years, living on Pratt street, had a Leg
horn hen s egg given him, which he put
in charge of two mate pigeons. The
birds sat upon the egg until within two
days of the time for it to hatch, when
they deserted it. The boy placed it
under another pigeon which was already
sitting on two eggs, and Sunday a little
brown chick burst its shell.
The foster parent fed the little stran
ger pigeon f ashion,which method seemed
to puzzle the chicken, making it amus
ing to watch them. The newcomer's
language appears to be a mystery to the
pigeons, but they treat the little fellow
well. Providence Journal.

An ImproTcd King.
One of the annoyances in playine;
checkers is the occasional slipping off of
the top checker whenever a piece is
made a king. To avoid this a New York
man has devised an extensible checker,
consisting or a ooay ana a sneu sur
rounding it, and as soon as a piece be
comes a king the extensible portion is
easily thrust upward and remains in its
place. New York Letter.
An Odd Catch.
The other day two Rome boys were
fishing in Armuchee creek and caught a
fine yellow cat. When the fish was cut
open they found within it a sight draft

Beading the Character f Peoiile In the
Pocketbooks They Use.
' "I can tell you the business of 6lx men
out of every ten who como in here, and
the social standing of all of them, from
the way they carry their money, said a
Broadway ticket seller for ono of the
sound steamboat lines to a reiorter.
"Did you ever think how ranch of a
person's individuality is expressed in his
method of carding his money? I see
people every duy get at their ch;ingo
and have xaade a study of it.
"That man," said the ticket seller, as
an old gentleman who had purchased a
pasteboard good for a tnp to Boston
went out, "is a retired banker. Did you
notice that he carried his money in a
long morocco pocketbook? That pocket-
book is always carried in the inside
pocket of his coat, on the right side. It
contains a number of bright, clean bills,
all neatly smoothed and laid out at full
length and right side up. He nevei
folds a bill, I will venture a cigar.
"The young broker or wholesale mer
chant carries his money in a small case
made of seal or lizard skin. Ho folds
the bills twice. His roll is never largo,
but he has enough on hand to meet any
"The clubmen invariably carry a roll
of clean five dollar bills in their vest
pocket.where they can bo easily reached.
Somo carry only gold. James Brown
Potter favors gold, and usually carries a
few quarter eagles in a small silver case,
into which the coins fit without rattling.
Lispenard Stewart usually has a roll of
new bills in his vest pocket.
"The man who comes in and fishes
from a deep trousers pocket a lot of one,
two and five dollar bills that have been
twisted up like a gun wadding I always
set down as a sporting 'gent.'
"The farmer on an excursion to 'Bos-
ting counts up the price of a ticket in
quarters and halves from a tan colored
leather pouch that is tied up with a
string run through small slits near the
top. The seafaring man on his way to
his home on the Maine coast carries the
proceeds of his last trip in a calfskin
wallet. It has been handed down from
his father, or perhaps his grandfather,
for it is black and shiny with ago. It
has a long strap passed through a num
ber of cross straps. The cross sections
seldom have more in them than tobacco
dust or a frayed tax receipt that shows
that he owns a house. But iu the cen
ter of the wallet is a place where bills
may be laid out straight and covered
with a calfskin flap from either sido.
"The man who carries change in his
coat pockets has been a car conductor
at some time or other. The fellow whe
draws ten cent pieces from every pocket
in his clothes is a peanut man or vender
of small wares.
"The women, too, have a variety of
ways to carry their money, though their
lack of pockets- limits their vagaries in
that direction. The young woman with
fluffy hair, who has the price of her
ticket rolled tightly in her palo, has a
mysterious storage place for money
somewhere. When p' e ii not spending
it she puts it vLitriV l ui.i.i will ever go
after it. rnt the pl-ce is accessible to
her slim fingers in a second." New
York Press.
Reply from the Pew.
"Joe" Jones, one of Sam's numerous
brothers, has enlisted in the ministry.
His first sermon was preached in a coun
try church at Pine Log before a large
congregation of farmers, backwoodsmen
and crackers. Sam's methods were fol
lowed with considerable success, but
when Joe branched off on his own hook
he struck a snag. He caused his hearers
to wince when, slapping the Bible nearly
off the pulpit, he exclaimed:
"A man what will cuss a oath'll
There was a lively shifting amonpr the
pews and much cautious looking around
and head shaking. Joe saw, and deter
mined to push his point.
"Brethren and sisters," he repeated,
'I want to say to you that a man what
will cuss a oath'll steal! What have
you got to say to that."
An aged cracker arose at the back of
the church and, fastening his glittering
gray eye on Joe, drawled through hip
"All I got ter say is it's er gol dern lie!"
Joe was so discouraged that he rested
on his oars two weeks before making
any more bold assertions. New York
Registration in Germany.
In Germany the exigencies of compul
