The republican majority of the

Means ha.s decided not to report
xeciurocity bill during this Con
gress, giving as the reason the un
certainty of what action the Senate
would tak,e upon suqli a bill and
the presence of tho Democratic

the republicans do not care to le- I Mr. and Mrs. Noll and Mrs.

of Now York. Although tta pntent t
now expired, and Its usefulness In part
done away with, this little machine,
not so big as n typewriter, worked a
revolution In a grcnt Industry, and to
day there Is not an Inch of straw braid

Mrs. Hooper's invention to accomplish
Mrs Hoopor Is tlie daughter of a for
mer Now York lawyer, whose fingers
Itched with Inventive skill, while he
kept them bound by the red titpo of his
profession so the cource of Mrs. Hoop
er's Inventive faculty Is not hard to
find. It was while alio w.ib still Miss
Carpontcr that eho learned through
iricnus or tho curious state of aiTalra
in the atraw sewing trade,
Up to that time, 1871, there had been
but one practical strnw-sewlng ma
chine Invented, which machine was
controlled and used by a combination
of thico or four flrm3 engaged In tho
manufacture of straw hats and bonnets.
It wnr called tho Bosworth ranahlne
and was Immensely valuable although
tho operator had to bo expert beforo
she could mako a bat, as tho sewing
had to be dono backward, from the
j brim to tho crown, nnd when done tho
' hat was wrong side out a condition
I which often resultod in breaking tho
j straw whllo It was being turned right.
J As Miss Carpenter had shown herself
posHPFsou or pronouncea mveniivesKiu,
of which tho patent office already bore
record, these facts were pointed out
to her by some of the leading manu
facturers. who were obliged to sow all
their straw goodrt by hand, and she
was encouraged to rnAke a now ma
chine which could be generally used.
In 1S7S sho received a patent for her
first model of a machine, but it was
not satisfactory to herself and no boc
ond machine was built from It. A Bee i
ond attempt a year or two later did
not yet fulfill all tho requirements sho
strove for. but in Juno. 1875, Miss Oar-
, penter complotcd a machine that could
! mal ll Irom ,tB P or t0P t0 tho

It from the machine, and when It waB
finished It was right sldo out and did
not have to bo turned, and, moreover,

Mr. F. G. Jackson haB marvelous
tales to tell of tho rolndeer, their speed
and enduranco as animals of draft
so marvelous Indeed that ho must for
glvo us for suggesting that ho has mado
a mistake in his ilgurcs.
"1 havo myself," he writes in tho
London Spectator, "driven three rein
deer a distance of 120 versts within
twelve hoUrrv without feeding them,
and I hear 0 of ii case whero a Zlrian
drove reindeer J'rom Ishma, on the
Pechora river, to Obdorsk, op tho Obi,
a distance of 309 versts, within twenty
four hours, " A reindeer, or
Samoyer vcrst. by tho way, is equal to
four Russian versts."
In other words. Mr. Jackson says ne
I has driven three deer for twelve hours
I at the rate of forty Russian versts, or
twenty-seven English miles, an hour.
i And the Zlrian, with a similar team,
' covered 710 miles In twenty-four hours.
, Tho latter, by the way, musj have
crossed the Ural mountains and one
or two rivers in tho bargain. Surely
there must be some mistake. Thero
exists, It is true, a well-known tradi
tion of a reludeor which onco about
1700, we believe carrier important dis
patches for the king of Sweden 800
miles In forty-eight hours, and. dying
In tho service of the king, la still pre
servedIn skoleton form In a north
ern museum, Dut that, after all, Is
only a tradition. Better authenticated
records do not give a higher rate of
speed than 150 miles to nineteen hours,
which Is considerably higher than what
Is attained by any other animal.

The Skin Is Vtilnuhto for Bltc!cn!niJ
In tho West Indies tho dried leaves
and prepared portions of the stem aro
used as packing matorlals, sayB Cham
bora' Journal. Fresh leaved aro used
to Bhado young coffeo or cdcoa seed
lings In nursery bods, and to cover co
coa beans during fermentation. The
young unopened loaves nro so smooth
and soft that they aro used as dross
ing for blisters. In India tho dried
stalk of tho plantain leaf Is uacd as a
rough kind of twino and tho larger
parts aro made Into small boxes for
holding snuff, drugs, etc.
In tho Malay peninsula the ash of the
leaf nnd loaf stalk Is used Instead of
Boap or fuller's earth In washing
etothes, and a solution of tho ash Is
often usod as n salt In cooking. In tho
Dutch Indies, tho skin of tho plantain
in usod for blackening Bhoes. The Juice
which flows from nil cut parts of tho
banana Is rich In tannin and of eo
blackening a nature that it may bo Used
as an Indelible marking ink. In Java,
tho loaves of tho "wax banana" are cov
ered on tho under sldo with a whlto
powder, which yloldB a valuable wax,
clear, hard and whttlch, forming an im
portant article of trade. The ashes of
tho leaves, stem, and fruit rind are em
ployed In Bengal in many dyeing proc
esses. In Slam, a rlgarolto wrapper is
made from the leaves.
Fiber lit got from tho stems of many
kinds of bonannn. Tho most veluablo
is tho "maullla homp" of commerce,
which holds tho chief placo for making
whllo ropes and cordngo. Old ropes
mado of It form an excellent papormak
ing maicrlal. much used In tho United
States for stout packing papora. Tho
mnnllla liomp Industry la a large one.
About 53,000 tono of fiber, valued at
3,000.000, aro annually oxported
from tho Philllppino Islands. Tho ma
nllln hemp plant Is grown oxcluslvojy
In tho southern part of the Philippines,
nnd all attempts to grow It clsowhcro
have failed. Many articles are mado
from mnnllla hemp mats, cords, hats,
plaited work, laco handkerchiefs of thu
finest tcxturo, and varloua qualities of
paper. At Wohlau, In Switzerland, an
Industry hns been started for malting
laco an- materials for ladles' hats from
it. By a simple process It Is made Into
ttraw exnetly resembling the finest
wheat straw for plaiting.

of j In a state of eruption. A
week .go last Tuesday Day King tnd
Llge Davl3, who were out upon tho
mountain, heard a rumble In the earth,
which as followed soon by a distinct
explosion. About half a mile from
them on tho north side of the peak a
large granite bowlder soared aloft ' nd
fell with n crash among the looso rocks,
Tbe flight of the bowlder was followed
by a puff of steam and ashen. The fam

to the place where tho explosion oc

One of tho most important aluminum
novelties of tho year la the Invention of
a New Yorker. It Is a racing skate that
Is almost without weight and at the
same tlmo sufficiently strong to stand
tho tremendous pressure brought by
skaters ambitious to break Dcoghue's
record of a mllo la 2:12 1-5. The skato
is composed of a fctcel runner eighteen
Inches long, one-sixteenth of an Inch
thick and almost as thin as the blade of
a knife, Tho blade Is supported by a pe
culiar shaped aluminum support, on top
of which Is a light strip of mahogany,
making a beautiful and artistic skate.
One of the greatest probloms skate man
ufacturers have had to contend with
was tho production of a skate with a
knife-like runner eighteen inches or
moreen length, strong and rigid, and
yet light enough to make their use prac
ticable An Old Jai'k-Knlfa.
Marccau of Mlllbury has come
into posces3lon of a hand-forsed Jack-
