both thought he was coming with a

The niblic honsA explain a great
many of the miseries of the miserable lo

but there are not mny, and there are
almost a few drinker who are always
moderate in their ligations. The curse
of bitter beer, raw)cotch whisky and
tuppenny" gin rs neavy on me
place. Public opinion is no weapon
against it, for publio opinion openly la-
yors drinking whenever one has the nec
essary money and does .not regard actual
drunkenness as a disgrace worth men
Women drink at the burs as uncon
cernedly as men do, and burmaida serve
them. The barroom is the gossip place,
and babes and small children are carried
to it and kept in it by careful mothers,
who gather there for the day 't necessary
talk. Infants sometimes cry and at such
times are permitted a sip from the ma
ternal glass, quite as other children are
bribed with chocolate drops. Thus blear
eyes and drink reddened faces often have
early beginnings. The children on the
streets are dirty, ragged and vociferous
ly happy over small things. Adults are
not genuinely happy. There is no reason
why they should bo. They derive much
spasmodic merriment from the public
houses. Drunkenness and fighting are
common everywhere, especially on the
streets. During one noon recess I saw
three fights develop among the two dozen
employees of a box factory. Nor are the
combatants always men or boys. Cen
tury. At What Age Is Man Strongest?
The muscles, in common with all the
organs of the body, have their stages of
development and decline ; our physical
strength increases up to a certain age
and then decreases. Tests of the strength
of several thousands of people have been
made by means of a dynamometer
(strength measurer) and the following
are given as the average figures for th
white race :
The "lifting power" of a youth of 17
years is 280 pounds; in his twentieth
year this increases to 320 pounds, and
in the thirtieth and thirty-first years it
reaches its height, 356 pounds. At the
end of the thirty-first year tho strength
begins to decline, very slowly at first.
By the fortieth year it has decreased
eight pounds, and this diminution con
tinues at a slightly increasing rate until
the fiftieth year is reached, when the
figure is 330 pounds.
After this period the strength fails
more and more rapidly until the weak
ness of old ago is reached. It is not pos
sible to give statistics of the decline of
strength after tho fiftieth year, as it va
ries to a large extent in different indi
viduals. Strand Magazine.
The Lnmlaoiu Bea Crab.
One of tho marine curiosities recently
fished from the bottom of tho Indian
ocean by a dredging vessel in the em
ploy of the Calcutta Society of Natural
History was a mammoth sea crab which
continually emitted a bright white light
similar to that seen in tho spasmodic
flashes of phosphorescent luminosity
kindled by our common fireflies. The
oddity was captured in daytime and
placed in a large tank, nothing peculiar
except its immense si being noticeable
in the broad glare of the tropical sun.
At night, however, when all was in
pitchy darkness, the crab surprised the
naturalists by lighting up tho tank so
that all the other si a creatures, great and
small, occupying tho same tank could bo
plainly seen. When tho luminous crus
tacean was prodded with a pole, he emit
ted flashes of lights which enabled the
experimenters to read small print, even
though otherwise they were in total
darkness. St. Louis Republic

The Kecent Rainfall
Wisxeu, Neb., July 27. Since Fri
day evening 4.26 inches of rain has

but will b all right again in a few
days. The hail did very little damage.

other heavy rain fell here last night.
The measurements showed tluve in
ches. Fully six inches have fall.-n in
side of seven days. Uncut grain will
no doubt lodge badly.
Blue Hill, Neb., July 27. Sixty-
ono-hundrodths of an inch of rain foil
here last night, accompanied by wind
and hail, both doing considerable
damage. Three miles south of town
for a strip about four miles long by
one wide st icks of grain, sheds and
windmills were blown down. Hail
broke window lights and ruined r-ev-eral
pieces of corn.
Wayne, N.b , July 27. A h aw rain
fell here last evening doing a little
damage to wheat and that portion of
small grain not yet cut. However, the
corn crop is now certain and the yield
will be quite large.
