two weeks the scale came off her

Huge Magnet Causes Workman's Death
ITTSHURG. PA. Death played a
grim joke on a Plttsburg workman
the other day , appearing to the poor
fellow In his most unfamiliar guise
John Wanmck , thirty-five years old
and a steel worker , came under the
Influence of a 30-ton magnet and was
yanked upward , being so badly Injured
by the Impact that he "died In a local
hospital two hours later. His head
was caught between the steel billet he
was carrying and the huge magnet and
These magnets , be It known , are ono
of the greatest labor-saving devices
of man's many Inventions. A huge
piece of soft Iron Is swung about In
the works where wanted thiough the
action of n traveling crane or a big
derrick. To this Iron is connected
wires through which a strong current
of electricity can be sent at will. Soft
Iron has this peculiarity , that It be
comes highly magnetized on the pas
sage of an electric current through Its
mass , but on the current being shut
off the magnetism ceases at once. This
property makes such a piece of Iron

A llttlo over four years ago the city
was crumbled to the dust by the
earthquake and flro which swept COS
city blocks out of exlstence. Last
April , Just four years after the great
cataclysm , the citizens of Snn Fran
cisco , assembled In mass meeting , sub
scribed over $4,000,000 toward an in
ternational exposition to be hold
there , and since that time $3,000,000
moro have been subscribed. Few cities
In the world arc capable of this great
revival. Not only has San Francisco
arisen from her ashes , but she now
faces the monumental task of financ
ing a great world exposition. (
Since the work of rebuilding San
Francisco was begun moro than $300-

while $100,000,000 has been expended

Sing Sing Prison Not Escape Proof
YORK. Once moro the barriers
riers of stone and steel and the
wit and watchfulness of selected
guardians that make Sing Sing prison
theoretically escape proof , have been
flouted by the criminal wards of New-
York state. Since Its construction the
big Institution has been regnrdod by
criminals as the "easiest pribon to
beat , " owing to its crowded condition
and the necessity of allowing men to
sleep In makeshift quarters. Moro than
200 men have eluded the guards since
the 'COs , but only a few have enjoyed
their liberty. Nearly all have boon re
captured and have HvccPto sco the day
they were sorry for tholr dash for
The escape of the last quintet of
criminals was the mos. . successful nnd
startling In the long list of deliveries
which run parallel with the history of
Sing Sing. It was crude , direct and
simple nnd the work of ono man , "Hig
valuable for picking up bars of Ironer
or steel , kegs of nails or bolts , scrap
Iron , or any substance susceptible to
the magnetic influence.
It soenis odd enough to the visitor
at a big foundry or rolling mill when
he sees such 'a clumsy-looking piece
of Iron swung along over n honp of
several tons of scrap iron , or chunks
of crude mntorlnl known In trade par
lance ns pig Iron , and the pieces begin
to jump upward and hang on to the
magnet through this invisible force
while slowly carried to homo other
part of the works , where they quickly
drop off as the magnet loses Its
power through I ho shutting off of the
current of electricity. The thing looks
ridiculous , yet the power that draws
these heavy pieces of iron or stool up
ward would sustain a weight of ninny
tons just as easily.
Workmen who witnessed the acci
dent had considerable difficulty In ex-
tricatlng the victim. They forgot to
turn off the current supplying the
contracting power at first. Finally
some one thought to shut off the
power and then the body nnd the bil
let fell to the ground , the latter stri

gagged. When the two guards were
safely gagged Green called to his fel

everybody , " he said. 'Who's coming ? "
Five men followed and all got away
Later they were captured.
The days of the Sing Sing quarries
were days of opportunity for the pris
oners. Many of the early escapes were
made when bands of convicts worked
at cutting rocks near the prison and
under the eyes of armed guards. As
far back as 18-13 there was a general
uprising of prisoners who tried to
burn the prison. Since that tlma there
has huen no concerted Insurrection , but
prisoners in groups of two or three
have opened the path to freedom nnd

men , but Scurry Away When
The old saying "Fear of man rests
upon every beast" must bo qualified in
the case of the herds of half wild cat
tle that sometimes range the semiarid -
arid regions of the west It Is a curi
ous fact that such animals fear and
respect a man who Is mounted on a
horse , hut seem to liavo nothing but
contempt for him when ho Is on foot.
The following case In point :
A railway train slowly making Its
way through a herd grazing along the
track was confronted by a largo bull.
Ho occupied the center of the road ,
and with lowered head was bellowing
deflanco at the engine. The engineer
wishing not to Injure the animal , stop
ped his train and sent the flreman ,
armed with a shovel , to drive him
Now. the fireman had courage
enough , and the Job to him seemed to
offer no particular dllllculty ; So ,
boldly and conlldontly , with consider
able brandishing of his shovel , ho
was proceeding to almost a striking
distance , when with a roar the bull
charged upon him.
The llroman sprang nsldo Just In
time to save himself , and when the
bull turned and charged again the
railway man dropped his shovel and
sought safety on the top of a largo
bowlder near by.
Unable to get to the man , the bull
set up a frightful din that soon brought
some CO other members of the herd
galloping about him. Quickly encir
cling Uio rock , they began rattling
their long horns against It and tryIng -
Ing to climb upon it , the man shrink

flreman , sprang to the ground armed

Then the engineer began to cast

came riding toward the train. Ho wan

Taking In the railway men's predica
ment at a glance , ho spurred his horse
Into a gallop , and uncoiling his rope ,
began swinging it in graceful circles
about his head. <
Soon the cows spied him , and their
attitude was changed as if by magic.
With lowered heads and tails thrown
aloft , they scurried away , the bull in

Her Scheme Went Awry.
At a dinner last winter ono of Now
York's prominent bankers was dilat
ing on the dangers of deceit. By way
of Illustration ho told of a society
woman who saw In a jeweler's win
dow a beautiful collar of pearls , which
hho wanted very much. Upon In
quiry she learned the price was six
thousand dollars. Thereupon she gave
her check for $3,000 , saying she would
send her husband to see the pearls ,
and If he could bo persuaded to buy
them ho was to be told the prlco was
The jeweler , being familiar with
that sort of game , readily agreed. The
husband called during the day to see
the pearls , and that evening told his
wlfo ho had bought them , since they
were evidently such a bargain. Ills
wlfo wan moro than delighted , and
Immediately asked If ho had brought
homo the collar , to which ho replied :
"Why , no , my dear ; I had it sent
to my mother. You know It Is her
birthday tomorrow. " The Sunday

The Oldest Printing Preas.
Typography , or the art of printing
from movable type , was Invented in
Europe about the middle of the fif
teenth century. Beyond this fact , the
history of this far-reaching industry
is very uncertain. It is generally con
sidered that cut wooden typo was first
used , then cut leaden typo , and that
afterwads cast typo was employed.
William Cnxton , in MG7 , was the first
to practice printing from movable
typo in England. The oldest typo of
printing prens which , by this way , is
now in the South Kensington museum ,
London , is the actual machine with
which Benjamin Franklin worked In
the year 1730. It Is constructed of
hard wood , mortised together ; It car
ries two horizontal rails , upon which
slides a carriage supporting the frame
of composed type , called the form.
The typo was Inked by two largo pads ,
or balls , with ink on their surfaces ,
the distribution of the ink being per
formed by working the pads together
and then applying them to the forms.
