Building IfoiiHe * of Paper.
The utilization of paper in the arts
of industry and construction presents
a notable example in the recent erec
tion of a new Hamburg hotel , in north
ern Germany , the structure being built
entire of paper boards compressed to
the hardness of wood. One advantage
of special importance attributed to
this novel description of building ma
terial is the circumstances that , by
being impregnated with certain chem
ical solutions , it can be made abso
lutely fire proof ; the same process of
treatment also secures it against the
attacks of destructive insects , and
might thus specially recommend it for
use in certain river valleys in the trop
ics , wood-eating ants having been
known to demolish large frame build
ings in less than a month. For some
time past a firm at Dresden has suc
cessfully engaged in the manufacture
of tool handles and shafts from com
pressed paper chemically prepared ,
the articles being not only very hard
and firm , but possessing the quality of
being non-conductors of heat. An
other German firm is making pulleys
of pasteboards pressed by hydraulic
power , having an iron core and strong
casing , and are supposed to take up
less room , generate less friction , and
are water proof.

Keeping Flower * .
A new method of preserving natural
flowers has been discovered by an Eng
lish lady , whose process is well worth
considering , says Farm and Fireside.
The flower buds were cut just as they
were about to open and the ends of the
stems covered with sealing wax. Each
was then wrapped separately in paper
and laid away in a box. When they
were wanted she clipped the stems just
above the wax and immersed them in
water , to which a little nitre had been
added ; and , though the flowers had
been gathered nearly a month before ,
on the morrow they opened with as
much beauty and fragrance as if Afresh

Fifteen Dollars a Week , Besides
Board and Glory for a Pugilist.
"I get § 15 a week an' me bonrd , an'
that's as good na a tough'like me can
expect ter do. "
The speaker was a muscular young
fellow of the .
Ho was leaning against the bar of a
saloon , toying with a glass of beer
and pufling at a long black cigar. His
business w"as a peculiar one. It was
his task to present himself each night
at a certain Sullivan-street resort
known as Teddy's , and be ready to
oblige any aspirant in the fistic line
by putting on the gloves \\lth him for
four rounds. He was , in short , the
representive of the management , and
if he did not get the best of the bout ,
the house was compelled to pay the
winner a dollar.
"I'm only 19 , " said the young man ,
'an' some day I may moot some of the
good ones. I have been in the busi
ness a. year now. One night last
winter I walked inta Teddy's did up a
Cockney what was doin' the honors
for the'house. . I was hired on the
spot , an' the Cockney was fired. I ve
nj er been bested since I started , an'
rA'ady say's I'm better'n most of the
ringers. Naw , I don't like the work ,
except for the money it brings. Most
of the men that meet me are plugs ,
and it makes me weary to punch 'em.
Then when I domeet aprettygood one
he usually tries to foul me. There'slots
of hard coustomers come in , ye know ,
an' they must do me up some way ,
an' fore I know it a feller drives his
shoulder into me stomach or hits me
under the chin with his head , I don't
get a fair fight like I would in a ring ,
though Teddy looks out for me pret
ty well when the gang against him
isn't too strong. Sometimes I get
spiked , an' once a big fellow , about
300 pounds weight , rushed me through
the ropes , and before I could jump out
of the crowd someone had struck me
with a brass knuckle behind the ear ,
an' I was within an ace of going out.
I faced me man again , though , an'
just got a knock-out blow in on him
in time to save meself. I guess I'll
stick ter the business a while longer.
Countin' the board that Teddy gives
it's worth 20 a week to me. That's
better' an uneducated jay like me kin
do in straight work , an' maybe next
year I kin get a fight on with a big un.

Money not Always the "Open Se-
same"to Royal Courts ,
Half of the American women , or
perhaps all of them , who spend their
money and energies in obtaining a
presentation to royalty at the point
of the bayonet , so to speak have but
one idea in view. It is to say they
have been at close quarters with the
Queen of Enqland , and breathed the
same atmosphere for about two and
one-half seconds as that pudgy but
virtuous monarch. This is something
to relate to one's relatives at home ,
perhaps. The cost of a presentation ,
as every one knows , ranges from
hundreds to thousands of dollars , but
of course , the good American like Mr.
Mrtaitalini "dem'ds the expense , " and
is only too thankful if no divorce nor
scandal prevents the Lord Chamber
lain from ordering a taboo at that or
any other royal function in the here
after. Judging , however , by the
names which have already been sent
in by that exalted functionary , the
over rich citizen of the United States
does not always get there. The line ,
it seems , can be drawn , even at a
Court presentation ! Let us be grateful
for so much , although it breaks a
millionaire heart or two to find the
Mighty Dollar is not sesame in a royal
palace. It seldom happens that
money fails as a key but at that preci
ous Court of St. James there is a sort
of Yale lock which defies it. Andafter
all is said and done , and the American
sotiety beauty has been stared at by
haughty royalty , and has heard her
name called in the halls of the elect ,
what then ? Is it not very silly , very
absurd , and about as childish as the
performances at a fashionable danc
ing school class ? Boston Herald.
IT STOPPED THE METER.
A Spider's Web Does a Good Turn
for a Business Man.
The superintendent of an electric-
light station gives a strange instance
of the stopping of a meter and the
explanation of the trouble.
On examining the meter , which was
of twenty-eight capacity , after a lapse
of a month , in order to determine the
quantity of current to be charged for ;
he hatfound t the consumer , in the
pressure of business , had placed a
number of small boxes around the
meter , concealing it from view.
As it was desireable not to disturb
them , it was suggested and agreed to
that the meter be allowed to run an
other month. At the end of the second
end month , the coast being clear , the
meter was examined , and it was found
that it recorded only five hours since
the time of examination.
This looked suspicious , but there
was no ground to believe that the
meter had been tampered with.
A very close inspection revealed the
fact that a spider had spun its web
around the fans so that they could
not rotate under the action of the
It appears that the screws which
held the cover to the top of the in
strument hod not been put in , and
that the spider had taken advantage
of the opening and established him
self in the cozy quarters.
