The national congress, elected two
years ago fresh from the ranks of the
people, repudiates the free silver
heresy and will waste little time in
discussing so defunct a subject. The
senate, however, which is cot in

with representing all the rotten cor
porations and trusts in the country,
stands up for the white metal and
gives a nnjoiity vote favoring the
Teller resolution, which was nothing
more than a mild sort of repudiation.

Our neighbor, being a comparative
recent convert to free silver and popo
cratic heresies, fails to grasp the idea.
Ve never believed that Hanna was a
fiend incarnate and all powerful, yet
a few weeks before the election, the
popocratic press and orators assured
us that the rise in wheat at that time
was the work of Hanna, who had cor
nered the market for political pur
poses, and that as soon as the election
was over, Hanna would let go and
wheat would go down with a startling
thud. Since it refused to go down, we
have naturally concluded if the popo
cratic ante-clection stories were true,
that Hanna roust bo the control

wheat going skyward now.

"To Lincoln, when the fare was low,
1'he editairs did daily go.
Their hard earned salaries to blow
And to commune right happily.
I'd like to join their mild carouse.
And see their lofty bulging brows,
But who would nilk my foaming cows.
If I should slope so jauntily?
Fain would I fire my ink and pens;
And leave as others left their dens;
But who would herd my snorting hens,
The while I monkeyed merrily?
Gladly I'd don my Sunday togs.
And northward drive my span of dogs.
But who'd pack slop to feed my hogs,
If I should skip so airily?
Few, few can do the things they wish;
Some saw the wood, while others fish;
Some eat the goose, some lick the dish.
And so the world goes drearily." Bixby.

EXAMPLES FROM THE DAYS OF
DCDALUS TO THE PRESENT.
A Wooden Venna That Walked and a
Ilrazen Alan That Talked A Wonderful
Mechanical Duck The Greatest of All
th Fraudulent Automatons.
There are few things more attractive
to the generality of men or more calcu
lated to excite their wonder and admira
tion than a dexterously and mysteriously
contrived automaton. There is, indeed,
something almost uncanny in tho sight
of a figure made by men's hands acting
like a creature of flesh and blood,, and
this uncanuiiiess is one of the most sub-
tie of fascinations. Hence the silver of
.1 - 1 f 1 . -
the curious readily finds its way into
the pockets of men ingenious enough to
, invent such marvels.
xnis passion tor tne automaton is cer
tainly no new thing. One meets it in
almost tho earliest books, sometimes
veiled in myth, sometimes more direct
ly stated. Vulcan, it will be remem
bered, made automatic tripods for the
gods of Olympus Btools which ad
vanced of their own accord to the ban
queting table and so retired when the
feast was over.
Aristotle tells us that the human au
tomata which Duxlalus made were so
active that it was necessary to keep
them tethered for fear they would run
away. Tho same philosopher describes
a wooden Venus who walked about and
gives also the secret of the phenomenon.
She was filled with quicksilver a some
what crude device. Albertus Magnus is
credited with having made a brazen
man who talked and St. Thomas Aqui
nas with having pounded it to pieces
with a club, suspecting it to be a work
of satan. Some marvelous feats of
mechanism are credited to John Muller,
otherwise known as Regiomontanus,
who flourished in the fifteenth century,
and in dealing with him we perhaps
touch firmer ground. One was an iron
fly which flew around a table, another
a wooden eagle which went out to meet
Emperor Maximilian on his entry of
Nuremberg on June 7, 1470, and re
turned with him to the city gates.
Whether due or not to the stimulus
given by Louis XIV, the seventeenth
and eighteenth centuries were in France
times of great automatic activity. In
deed, the first named century marks the
beginning of the really historical era of
automata. In the eighteenth century
lived Mr. Vaucauson, perhaps the most
wonderful of all makers of automata
and the creator of the famous duck
which first appeared before the public
in 1741. The duck was Vaucanson's
masterpiece and completed a reputation
already made wide by his mechanical
flute player and an automatic musician
which not only blew upon the flageolet,
but also kept time to it on a tambourine.
The bird was of life size, and not only
was it outwardly an exact imitation to
a feather of a real duck, but its internal
anatomy was absolutely true to life. So,
indeed, were its movements, for it
swam, dived, walked, quacked, ate,
drank and by an ingenious device even
seemed to digest its food.
This automaton disappeared after its
inventor's death, but turned up again
in 1840 in a garret in Berlin and was
purchased by a George Tiets, who took
four years to put it in proper working
order again. At the end of this time it
was exhibited in a room in the Palais
Royal, Paris, where Mr. Houdin, the
celebrated conjuror, saw it, and, indeed,
afterward, when something happened
to one of its wings, took charge of and
repaired it. No doubt it is still in ex
istence. Of more modern automata this
is scarcely the place to speak, for they
are private secrets. Let us confine our
selves to merely mentioning Mr. Mas-
kelyne's "Psycho" and "Zoo."
Like most things, automata have not
always been what they seemed. Of
many frauds upon the wonder loving
public perhaps the completest was that
of the famous automatic chess player of
Mr. Kempelen, which was exhibited
all over Europe at the end of the last
century and afterward in America. It
was the figure of a life sized Turk seat
ed behind a large box, the top of which
was marked in the middle for chess.
Prior to the automaton's meeting an
opponent the front of the box was open
ed and skeptical lookers on were shown
an arrangement of strings, pulleys and
cylinders. After this they were allowed
to examine the interior of the figure,
which was hollow. Then Mr. Kempe
len wound up his Turk with a key, and
it was" ready to play, which it did by
moving the pieces with its left hand
and giving three nods for check to king
and two for check to queen. All the
noted chess players of Europe succumb
ed to the figure's superior strategy, and
its skill so impressed the Empress Cath
erine II of Russia that she wished to
buy it and was with difficulty persuad
ed by Mr. Kempelen to give up the idea,
It was not for years that the secret was
discovered; but, like most secrets, it
leaked out at last. The real chess play
er was a Mr. Wronsky, a Polish ex-cap-
tain, both of whose legs had been am
putated at the trunk in consequence of
a wound from a cannon ball. While the
spectators were examining the box
Wronsky was in the Turk's body, and
when they turned to inspect that an in
genious mechanism slid him back into
the box. To the fact that Wronsky was
a chess player of consummate skill the
wide fame of the automaton, which he
secretly controlled, is to be attributed.
After this disclosure Mr. Kempelen 'e
automaton naturally enough ceased to
move mankind to wonder. New York

ONCE THEY WERE MEDIUMS, j
Now They Kxplate Their Kin by Tunning
Hall of 1(1 ue Fire.
Close by tho Northwestern tracks at
Leavitt street is tho home of tho "jug
gling sisters." They were t'vin presti
digitators in their days of life, no runs
the tradition, and now they toss balls
of bine fire about as tho juggler dons
eggs, cannon balls and tho like. Their
pet amusement is to stand on their
heads and toss the balls as if they were
standing afoot. The force of gravity
seems to bo reversed fur their benefit,
for they "toss" the balls of fire down,
and the little flames "fall" up. All this
is set down just as James Mac-Courtney,
the oldest settler in tho neighborhood,
tells it. He said tho other day: I
"Them broad windy s over there ou
the north side of the old building is the
t- A. I - . A. l
place where tho sisters comes to show
theirselves. Tho year of the World 'o
fair I counted up their performances, an
they come every 50 days. Tho reason
fer that issomethin I could never guess,
but some smart young chap here fig
gered out that it was always in the
dark of the moon. I've noticed since
that there never was no moonlight when
they got up there in the windys.
"What's the cause of their hauntin
the old place? Why, sir, the story's so
old there can't no truth nor lio bo mado
out on it. There's no man in these dig
gin's longer'n I be, an I ken the story
only by hearsay, so to speak. I heerd it
from my grauddaddy, an he said he heeyl
it when he was a young man comin
here. That mus' 'a' ben in tho thirties.
Onnyways he sed that the two sisters
was persdiditaters. It seems like they
give a performance in tho houso, which
was new then in course, an the pair of
them agreed ter be locked up in a box
thet was to be sealed an fastened, an
then they was to get out without break
in the seals. Well, they was locked up,
but they couldn't get out, an purty soon
they foun theirselves so short of breath
they couldn't holler loud enough to be
heerd. In course they was in a room
away from the other people, so's the
common folk couldn't see how the trick
was turned. When they couldn't holler,
they tried rappin, an the others only
thought they was a-workin out of the
box an 6o didn't pay attention. After
an hour or so the other peoples got nerv
ous an went in an opened the box, an
there was the two sisters, cold dead.
They buried 'em together in the box in
the yard back of the house, an that's
why they juggles the fire balls upside
down like." Chicago Chronicle.
MAKING ARTIFICIAL ICE.
How the Plants Are Contracted and Op
erated In Philadelphia.
Artificial cold or ice may be most
readily produced by the evaporation of
a more or less volatile liquid. In the
first machines constructed this liquid
was water. One-tenth of the amount of
water used was converted into ice, but
as it was necessary to maintain a vac
uum in the apparatus its perfect work
ing was a aimcult problem. A more
readily volatile liquid, therefore, had
to be substituted, such as liquefied sul
phurous acid and liquefied ammonia.
Being gaseous at ordinary temperatures,
they are very suitable substances for
this purpose. The ammonia ice machine
is the one in most general use in fact,
it finds exclusive application in this
city. This liquefied ammonia is allowed
to expand in coils of pipes which are
placed in tanks filled with brine. The
temperatuie of the brine is thus reduced
to a point below the freezing point of
water that is, to 14-18 degrees F.
In this refrigerated brine are placed
galvanized iron tanks having the shape
of the large cakes of ice which one is
accustomed to see in the wagons that
pass through our city streets. After a
period of 48-50 hours this can of water
is converted into solid ice. The can is
hoisted out of the brine, warmed with
hot water, which allows the cake to
slip out upon a shoot that runs into the
storage rooms. The gaseous ammonia
in the pipes can be used over and over
again, a large compression engine being
a part of the plant, which reduces the
expense of the process. From this de
scription it should be plain that there
can be no taint of ammonia to give a
taste to the ice.
The plants usually employ distilled
or artesian water, so that the ice is of
the best quality. Whatever impurities
the water contains are collected in ths
white streak found in the center of each
cake. The pure water separates from
the impure and freezes first. Even ten
years ago the demand for ice was sup
plied from natural sources, the har
vests from our own Pennsylvania riv
ers, which were stored every winter in
great houses on the shores of the streams,
being supplemented by shipments
throughout the summer from Maine,
There are now in Philadelphia 16 ice
making plants, some of which yield
over 100 tons per day each, and the arti
ficial product for several years has been
a serious competitor of the natural arti-1
