Philately is a study. It is a pursuit
that adds mora to the life of tlio young

instructive science and is even uow a
formidable rival of numismatics. No i
longer is it called a mania or a craze,
but a scieiieo teaching the geography,
history, language aud the morals of a
country. Our philatelists are not mere
schoollKiy8 and girls, although they col
lect stamps, but men of mature minds;
men well established in business aud
professions, men of sound judgment,
intellectual and thoughtful men. And

philatelists. Ohio State Journal.

Wonderfnl stories partly true and part
ly false have been told by sailors re
turning from a forced trip to the Sar
gaRso sea. The surface of the sea is cov
ered with floating wrecks, spars, sea
weed, boxes, fruits und a thousand other
innumerable articles. It is the great re
pository or storehouse of the ocean, and
all things which do not sink to the bot
tom or are not washed upon the shores
are carried to this center of the sea.
When one cousiders the vast number of
wrecks on the ocean und the quantity of
floating material that is thrown over
board, a faint idea of the wreckage in
the Sargasso sea may lie conceived.
Derelicts or abandoned vessels fre
quently disappear in mysterious ways,
and no accounts aro given of them for
years by passing vessels. Then sudden
ly, years later, they appear again in
some well traveled routo to the astonish
ment of all. The wrecks are covered
with mould and green slime, showing
the long, lonesome voyage which they
have passed through. It is generally
supposed thut such derelicts have been
swept into the center of tho pool and re
mained in the Sargasso sea until finally

sea form tlio chief life of those watory

of them live, they swarm around in
greut numbers. The smuller fishes live
in the intricate avenues formed by tho
seaweed, and the more ferocious deni

way the submarine life of tho Sargasso

The only life overhead is that made

reach the solitudes of this niidoceaii
cemetery. A few of the long flyers of
the air peiutrateto the very middle of
the ocean, but it is very rarely that this
occurs. Some have been known to fol

There is sufficient food floating on the

INDIVIDUALITY IN TYPEWRITING.
Many I. title I't-riiliui itlri In t lie Work ol
The typewritten page has no individual
ity for most pel-sons, but a study of the
subject shows many characteristics by
w hich the woi i; of dilTcrnit Machines and
dilTcrctit operators can be distinguished.
This held presents fetter opportunities than
does that of llie hand writing expert, but is,
nevertheless, of some interest and impor
lance. In a legal contest the w hole cast
might binge on the authenticity of a page
For instance, it became necessary In a
court not long ago to lind out whether out
page of the long typewritten d'S timrnt ill
evidence had not lieeii replaced with ail
other in w hich some of the words had been
changed. Ill this case of course the sus
pected page was writ ten on t he same kind
of a machine as the others. The difference
between instruments of the various manu
facturers was therefore of no service.
An expert stenographer and teacher Ol
typewriting was called as a witness. Ii,
reply to quest ions put by counsel he said
that as a general rule it was not diiliciilt
for an expert to distinguish between the
writing dofii! upon different machines ol
the same manufacture. Two instruments
Might write so nearly alike as to make it
impossible to determine upon whicli ol
them a certain sheet was turned out. Still
there were many little marks of variance
in the writing of different machines, and
even of the same one, at different times 01
when used by different persons. The wit
ness did not In lieve that the page in ques
tion was wiitten at the same time that the
others wt te, nor by t he same person. All
might have been written on the same uia
chine, but not consecutively.
Tho reasons given for this conclusion
were, in the lirst place, that the typo used
oil pane seventeen was clean; on tin; others
many of the small letters were clogged up.
The "e" and "s" were especially bad. Tht
riblioii used for page 17 was not so much
worn ns that for the lest of the docu
incut, and the writing was more uniform
in color; the latter fact was in part due. to
the siiierior skill of the writerof the single
page. The letters were in better alignmeut
on that page than on the others, in which
the "t" and "e" were badly out of theit
In page 17 the "i" was accurately cen
tered; iu the rest it was to the left of
where it should lie. The "p" was upright
on tho suspected sheet, and leaned a trill
on the others, being turned in the bar.
The one sheet, also, had a wider margin by
two spaces than those which followed anil
When asked why he believed that dif
ferent persons wrote the sheets he said
that the operator who turned out page
17 was more expert than the other. The
former's touch was more uniform; none of
his letters seemed to override each other,
as was sometimes the case on the other
pages. His punctuation marks did not
perforate the paper. The indentations of
his paragraphs were eix spaces, against
five on the rest of the document, lie used
three spaces between his sentences; the
others only two. The lirst made a space
after a comma; the latter did not.
The writer of the bulk of the paper was
less acquainted with the rules of punctua
tion than was the other man. One man
always put a period and a colon aftei
the words "to wit;" the other used only a
comma. For the figure 1 in the paging of
sheet 17 a lower case "1" was used; on the
other sheets a capital "I.". The jury coufd
hardly help agreeing with the expert's
conclusions. New York Tribune.
A Oncer Custom.
A iiiediaivul custom prevails in Freibercr.
! in llreisgiiu. This is observed on the
birthday of the reigning grand duke of
linden, and consists of a foolhardy t rip to
the topmost part of the tower of the min
ster. It is dangerous enterprise, for the
tower is 400 feet high, and the ascent is
made from the exterior of the building.
The steeplejacks in their ascent have to
leap from stone to stone, often a yard apart,
and one false slep on tlio narrow ledges
would bo death. At the topmost pinnacle
pistol shots announce that the climbers
have succeeded. Then nu immense gilded
star revolves and the descent is begun.
Each man receives as a reward the sum of
five marks from tho state and asumptuoiis
Ou the occasion of the sixty-sixth birth
dry of the grand duke of linden, three
men undertook the ascent. One of them
on arriving at a projecting bar of iron,
halfway up, went through an acrobatic
performance. This was before an immense
crowd of astonished spectators. He twisted
and twirled about as if he were but within
a few feet of the earth. London News.
