The criminal dockst for the March
term of the district court is the light
est known in years, there being only
two cases on the docket. One is that
of the state vs. Herbert Mecum,
charged with assaulting Peter Curtis,
and the other that of James McComb,
charged with shootiig with intent to
kill. The small number of criminal
cases is due larerelv to tho efforts of
Judere Ilamsey, who determined at
the outset of his career on the bench
to impose severe sentences on all pro
fessional criminals who came before
him. A3 a consequence this district
is avoided by professionals, to
marked degree, while surrounding
districts having more lenient judges-
Germany, which had recently be
come Quite a market for American
fruit9, ha9 taken the same action that
was taken to close her markets
against our pork products when the
competition became more than they
could stand. Instead ol placing a
high tariff they coolly exclude the
product on sanitary grounds. If Uncle
Sam does not give them a dose of their
own medicine in retaliation by shut
ting out their woolens and iron pro
ducts, we shall believe the McKinley
government is far short of what the
public has a right to expect. Germany
has acted porkish in a commercial way
all the time, and yet we are paying
her millions of dollars annually for
her goods. This must cease, and then
we can get decent treatment from
that country, but we never will get it
until the United States retaliates in a
way that will be severly felt.
The majority which the Teller reso
lution got in the senate was aoout us
laage as its suppors predicted it would
have. Small or laige, however, the
majority make no difference, says the
Globe Democrat. The resolution is at
the end of its career. If the house
touches it at all it will vote itdown by
an overwhelming majority, ihis is
where its fate differs from that of its
progenitor, the Matthews resolution,
which passed both branches of con
gress. President Hayes disregarded
the Matthews prouncement. President
McKinley would not pay the slightest
attention to Teller's OHtgiving, even
if it should pass the house. As an
expression of the opinion of the sil
verite Senate it tells nobody anything
which he did not know already. The
prices of neither bonds nor stocks will
be affected by it. The credit of the
government, at home or abroad, will
not be altered in the faintest degree.
It is an empty fulmination of a band of
baffled and desperate political con
epiiators whom the country has ex
posed and repudiated.

given same at the starch works. He
worked faithfully, but found he was
not being paid as much as his fellow
workmen and quit. From there he
went to work on the river for the gov
ernment, but after a while quit that
job. He then took the box car for the
south, but at Julian was jumped onto
and pounded up quite badly. He then
returned to this city and stopped at
the Weaver house. In a short time
he secured a position as hack driver
for J. H. Frazier, which job he now
holds. While in this position he has
had consideraole trouble, but has al

Yesterday was a turning point in

Rheumatism Cured in a Iay.
A few weeks ago the editor wae
taken with a very severe cold that
caused him to be in a most miserable
condition. It w.is undoubtedly a bad
case of la grippe, aud recognizing it
as dangerous he took immediate
steps to bring about a speedy cure.
From the advertisement of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy and the many
good recommendations included
therein, we concluded to make a first
trial of tho medicine. To say that it
was satisfactory in its results, is put-
t very mildly, indeed. It acted like
magic and the result was a speedy aud
permanent cure. We have no hesi
tancy in recommending this excellent
Cough Remedy to anyone afllicted
with a cough or cold in any form. The

HE LGVE1D THE SEA.
Tennyson ITsed to Study It From the
I)owm of tbe Ile of Wight.
Tennyson said, "Somehow water is
the element I lore host of all four," but
iu the recent memoir he is also credited
with saying that he "never cared great
ly for the sea on the south coast. It is
not a grand sea, only au angry, curt sea. "
Probably that was a view expressed
before he became familiar with the lo
cality, for though the Atlantic does not
plunge against the isle of Wight as
against Cornwall and the west of Ire
land he himself has proved how much
power and enchantment the sea reveals
from the downs. Let the weather be
fair or foul, nature is never dull from
the vantage ground of those convexities
which seem like the rhid of tho earth
and give an illusion of vastness and
openness beyond their actual area. Men.
striding on ridges and etched against
the sky indeed seem "as trees walking. "
The wind rustling in the ear, the sheep
bleating, tho sea churning among the
bowlders, the occasional bellowing of a
steamer for a pilot, tho swallows crying
in their low flights and the g nils scream
ing give the only sounds. When the
mist closes over the scene, a strange
sense of being disembodied possesses us,
we are lost in the impenetrable vapor,
and the gulls pass over our heads, vis
ible but for an. instant as they float from
obscurity into obscurity. Iu times of
storm one seems to be at the seat of the
elements and a witness to all their
processes. The clouds roll and break
against the cliffs like another sea, and
sunbursts flashing from them leave a
silver swath over the vexed and som
ber billows. On sultry days a water
spout, whirling like a dervish, is no un
common sight, and he who makes the
downs his observatory becomes wise in
all the phenomena of sea and air. Climb
ing them at night gives one the feeling
of scaling the walls of heaven itself.
They slope like the sides of a pyramid,
and the apex of the pyramid impales
the stars. On sunny days the sea below
is purple, and every shade of blue and
green that can be thought of, even (to
use one of Tennyson's own descriptions)
"like a peacock's neck."

DOG OPENED FATHER'S EYES
Experience of a Man Who Had Several

"Your hunting dog?" echoed the
"Yes. I had heard of nearly every
kind of a plan for the communication
of lovers except a dog. In this case
Jack became Cupid's messenger. Those
boys borrowed the dog ostensibly to go
hunting, but I have learned since that
they didn't know a guufrom a hoe han
dle. They tied Jack up overnight, and
as soon as he got out in the morning he
made a bee line for home. If I hadn't
seen the corner of a paper sticking from
under his collar I should never have
suspected the eagerness with which
these girls tried to head him off from

Effects of a Bee Sting.
An English physician relates an in
stance of a lady who was stung by a
bee. At the first moment she seemed to
pay very little attention to it, but very
soon her face became flushed and spots
appeared all over her body. Suddenly
she developed a most severe attack of
astnma, nnaing great dimculty in
breathing. Another instance is that of
a young lady who was stung on the
back of her head by an ordinary honey
bee. In less than five minutes her face
began to swell, and very marked red
and white spots appeared all over the
surface of the body. The swelling ex
tended over the entire person, accompa
nied by severe pain, burning and giddi
ness. The eyes were almost closed and
the countenance was so distorted as to
be unrecognizable. Very free bathing
in soda water, with a little soda taken
internally, and hot applications to the
feet and thorough massage finally afford
ed relief, but it was some hours before
the patient recovered from what was
truly an alarming condition. Violent
attacks of nervousness accompanied the
trouble, and the sense of suffocation
was almost intolerable. The young wo
man had been stung a number of times
before without any apparent unpleasant
result The physicians were of the opfn
iou that the bee had been feeding upon
some extremely poisonous plant, which
became concentrated in tho venom of
the sting. Be that as it may, the condi
tion was such as to excite grave appre
hension, the more so as it was several
days before recovery was complete.

EXAMPLES FROM THE DAYS OF
DEDALUS TO THE PRESENT.
A Wooden Venus That Walked and a
Brazen Man That Talked A Wonderful
Mechanical Duck The Greatest of All
the 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 the sight
of a figure made by men's hands acting
like a creature of flesh and blood, and
this uncanuiness is one of the most sub
tle of fascinations. Hence the silver of
the curious readily finds its way into
the pockets of men ingenious enough to
invent such marvels.
This passion for the automaton is cer
tainly no new thing. One meets it in
almost the 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 stools which ad
vanced of their own accord to the ban
queting table and so retired when the
feast was over.
Aristotle tells ns that the human au
tomata which Daedalus made were so
active that it was necessary to keep
them tethered for fear they would run
away. The 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 automatio activity. In
deed, the first named century marks the
beginning of the really historical era of
automata. In the eighteenth century
lived Mr. Vaucanson, 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'
masterpiece and completed a reputation
already made wide by his mechanical
flute player and an automatio musician
which not only blew upon tbe 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. Kmpe
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
Becretly controlled, is to be attributed.
After this disclosure Mr. Kempelen's
automaton naturally enough ceased to
move mankind to wonder. New York

ONCE THEY WERE MEDIUMS, j
Now They Expiate Their Slim hy Tossing;
Halls of Blue Fire. ,
Close by the Northwestern tracks at
Leavitt street is the homo of tho "jug
gling sisters." They were twin presti
digitators in their days of life, so runs
the tradition, and now they toss balls
Of blue fire about as tho juggler does ;
eggs, cannon balls and the like. Their
pet amusement is to stand on their
heads aud toss the balls as if they were
standing afoot. Tho force of gravity
eeems to be reversed for their benefit,
for they "toss" the balls of fire down,
and the little flames "fall" up. All this
is set down just as James f acCourtney, j
the oldest settler in the n hborhood, ;
tells it. He eaid tho other day. j
"Them broad windys over there on
the north side of the old building is the 1
place where the sisters conies to show j
theirselves. The year of tho World's
fair I counted up their performances, an
they come every 50 days. The reason
fer that is somethin I could never guess,
but some smart young chap here fig
gered out that it was always iu 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, Fir, the story's so
old there can't no truth nor lie be made
out on it. There's no man in these dig
gin's longer'n I bo, an I ken the story
only by hearsay, so to speak. I heerd it
from my granddaddy, an he said he heeyl
it when he was a young man comiu
here. That mus' 'a ben in tho thirties.
Onnyways be sed that the two sisters
was persdiditaters. It seems like they
give a performance in the house, 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
beerd. In course they was in a room
away from the other people, 6o'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 so didn't pay attention. After
an hour or so the other peoples got nerv
ous an weut 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 Constructed and Op
erated In Philadelphia.
Artificial cold or ice may be most
readily produced by the evaporation of
a more or lesa 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 difficult 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
temperature 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 rooma 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 the
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-.
