Last Saturday the supreme court of Iowa
rendered a decision In life case of Edmund
Llndscy , appellant , against Boone county ,
which Is of considerable Interest to the people -
plo of 1'oltawat'tamlo county as well , from
the now light which It throws upon the busi
ness of buying property At tax sale. The
plaintiff bought a piece of property at tax
sale 'In Boone county and brought action to
recover the amount paid the county because
he has not received anything by his purchase
on nccoutn of the defective description of
the land. It Is held by the court
that ho cannot recover because he
took his chances when ho paid the taxes ; ho
did , so voluntarily and assumed all risks ,
for , as In Judicial sales , there Is no warrant
In the bales , " and there can bo no recovery ,
except for the amount of the taxes paid ,
and Interest , where land has been sold on
which no tax was due , or where such
land Is sold In consequence of an error In
the description in the receipt , which was not
true of this case. The action also asked for
recovery for subsequent taxes paid. The
court says : "A purchaser at a tax sale must
beware. The description of the premises Is
open to h' ' Inspection , and he buys just as
the county offers to give. If It Is not suf
ficient to carry the title he need not
buy , So with reference to the subsequent
taxes , ho has the right to pay them , but Is
not compelled to do so. If he does , the pay
ment Is voluntary , and no action will le to
recover It back. The subsequent taxes were
not paid through a mistake , nor was there
any fraud In the transaction. ' So the tax
speculator must be content with his bargan.

The capture of Kdwln Bird at Bolivar , Mo. ,
by the sheriff and his men Is something that
will bring delight to a good many
people In Oakland. Bird Is known
to ba one of the hardest charac
ters In the county. He has already
spent one term In the penitentiary , and there
U enough evidence , It is claimed , on hand
to convict him of burglariitag the houses of
several prominent people In Oakland. The
biirKluiles covered a space of about a week ,
and In that I line the residences of Sam
uel Guff , Mr. Klocum , John Hess , Joseph
Gates , and Buck Owens , besides a hardware
store and postofflce , were- broken Into. Wil
liam McDonald and Jarler I'uryear and his
brother W. H. Puryear , were are ted on
suspicion of be Ins Implicated In the
affair. One ot the men told
the wl.ole story , and , at a result ,
McDonald and Bird will undoubtedly go
across ( he state , while tliero Is a tittle rnoro
uncertainty na to the outcome ot the prosecu
tion of the Purycar brothers. In the resi
dences above mentioned cash to the amount
of (400 ( was stolen , Bird will probably reach
here early thlsjvook.

of the enterprl&e , and both are engaged now
In raising beets , which are shipped to Nor
folk. The beets are sold for about $5 per
ton , and as Mr. Graves has raised from six
teen to eighteen tons to the acre , ho has
found the business profitable. The soil ol

The United States Internal boundary com-
mission has arrived at San Diego and Is
completing the work of establishing 258 monuments
ments marking the line between Mexico and
the United States from El Paso to the Pacific
ocean , a distance of about 700 miles. The
commissioners arc Colonel Barlow , United
States army ; Lieutenant Galllard , United
States army , and Mr. Mossman of the United
States coast and geodetic survey. Their
staff , of engineers , soldiers nnd laborers
numbers about eighty. For two years and a
half this party has been In the field erecting
the monuments and resurveylng the boundary
line , which was originally established by
Commissioner Emery from 1849 to 1853.
The fifty-two monuments then erected have
been supplemented by 20G more , which are
for the most part plain Iron shafts on rock
and cement foundations. By agreement
with Mexico any errors discovered In the
original survey by the present commission
shall not bo corrected , so far as ownership
of territory Is concerned. Few errors have
been found In the first survey. The largest
was along the New Mexico boundary , where
by Uncle Sam gains nearly forty square
mtls of land which the new survey shows to
bo In Mexico.

WASHINGTON , Oct. 14 , Not the shadow
of a tanelble clew to the Identity ot the
men who accomplished the remarkable feat
of train brigandage In Virginia Friday night
has yet come to light. The little town of
Quantlco , which consists of half a dozen
houses , usually almost Isolated from civili
zation , Is overrun with detect'ves. There ore
almost as many theories afloat as there are
detectives , but the only points on which the
theories are practically harmonious are that
the robbery was a carefully planned one ,
executed by professionals , and that the men
are now probably far distant from their flsld
of operation. The man arrested on suipl-
c'on last night will merely bs arraigned
in the police court on a charge of vagrancy ,
as no evidence lies against him.

Moro than once the tasks , the horizons ,
the hopes of men have been forever trans
formed by a discovery or , an Invention which
seemed at Its birth a very small matter.
Thus waa It when an Iron needle , afloat per
haps In a cocoanut , first safely guided a ship
out of sight of land and sky. Thus , again ,
was It when charcoal , saltpeter and sulphur
wcro first combined and fired In a gun , to
leave thereafter the iloutest soldier weak
Indeed who should be shorn of his powder
flask. And when Guttenberg divided the
solid lines ot engraved metal Into separate
letters , or movable types , as we say , did ho
suspect , do you suppose , that ho was usherIng -
Ing In the democracy of learning ! As big
with fate as the types of Guttenberg was the
devlco made public by Alexander Volta of
Pavla In the very first year of this con
tury. This contrivance was a new nnd ex
cellent meansof obtaining a flow of elec
tricity. Previously In a "pile , " as this In.
genlous man , Its Inventor , called It , n cur
rent had been derived from a series ot pieces
ot zlno and copper , each bit ot metal sepa
rated from Its neighbor by cloth moistened
In acid. . Volta had now much Improved this
"pile" by putting each zlno and copper pair
by Itself In a cup filled with add. From
this "crown of cups" he produced a strong
and fairly steady stream of c'ectrlclty , with
the advantage that It lasted frr a consider
able time. Much as the cup or cell ot Volta
has been varied and bettered since It loft his
hands , It yet remains essentially the device
he created , and to him , therefore , Is due the
honor of reducing to vatsalage the gentlest
and mightiest , the most versatile und the
most biddable force In the stronghold of na
ture. It Is the voltaic cell which has taught
the electrician his business , with the result
that today tt finds Itself In large measure
supplanted ; where once It reigned monarch
It Is now merely a partner possessed of a
small and diminishing Interest.
The distinctive mark of a really great In
ventlon Is Us frultfulneEfl. The voltaic cell
was no mere addition to the armory of ex
ploration and conquest ; It entered the field
with all the fertility of a multiplier ; It mar
ried old resources with the Issue of powers
before unimaginable ; It gave familiar weapons
a new edge , and pointed them to triumphs
not only easier than the old , but vastly
richer In spoil. If science In the nineteenth
centurv has won victories more decisive
than those of the eighteen centuries before.
It Is largely because electricity has been
captured and Impressed for n thousand new
services. And thus It oombs about that
as inventions of prime 'dignity now make
their appearanca at moro frequent Intervals
than ever , the pace of scientific progress is
quickened prodigiously , and the history of
Industrial art becomes llttlo lelss than
story of chronic revolution.
Priceless as the voltaic cell has been hi the
past , and valuable as It pontluues to be , Its
field Is narrowly limited In that It feeds on
costly zinc. Electricity has only come to Its
kingdom by reducing itsjtax to a reasonable
lew payable In coal. The , dynamo , which
enables this tp , be done , jhlngcs upon a faci
observed by Oersted sixty yenra ago namely
that If a magnet be moved near a piece 01
metal , preferably a cell , ot' copper wire , a
current of electricity Is p'rotJujed In the cell
This discovery of Oersted's 'is Illustrated It

likely as to be unsought. Although the en

cheaper than a battery of cells when elec
trlclty Is to be produced wholesale. Th
emancipators , then , of the current release
at this hour for new and myriad uses , ar
the mechanicians who have brought th
dynamo to Its present pitch of perfection
and the engineers , who , with their trip ]
and quadruple steam cylinders , ask hardl
more than a pound of good coal to deliver
horse power for an hour. If to these me
electric art and science owe much , magnlfl
cently has the debt been repaid. First an
cheafly the current rotates the electric motor
which Is llttlo else than a dynamo reverset
With the Introduction of the dynamo and
the motor a new day has dawned In the
workshop nnd factory. As we find out In
replacing at our street door an.old-fashloned
moving bell pull by a motionless wire armed
with Its push button , electricity can transmit
motion without any movement on the part of
the transmitting wire. Availing himself of
this golden property , the' ' machinist removes
from his shop a wilderness of whirling wheels
and belts , and puts In their place a few wires
at rest , each of which enters the electric
motor which drives a particular machine.
Manifold gains resu't. Tliero Is a saving of
power , often enormous , required to keep
going the multitude of needless wheels and
belts. it was once found at the Waltlmm
watch factory that three-quarters of the en
gine's power was absorbed by shafts and
gearing without a single machine being har
nessed for duty. And where one machine
among many Is to bo set at work by Itself ,
especially at a distance from the engine ,
the loss In the mechanical conveyance of Its
power becomes Inordinate ; this loss Is almost
wholly avoided with eectrlcal transmission.
More benefits still : The factory building light
ened of much of its burden , and subjected
to a good deal leas vibration than before , can
be safely constructed with thinner walls.
while Its rooms become lighter , cleaner nnd
more cheerful In every way. Electricity Is
of all forms of farce the one most easily
kept by Itself , that Is , preserved from losses
resembling either leakage or friction. Hence ,
a current cannot only 'distributed through
out a workshop with the Utmost convenience
and economy , but It cat > jbpjsent to a work
shop from an engine orya water wheel many
miles away. Today Niagara Is yoked to
the wheels and lamps ot'Buffalo , and In
famous experiments at Iia\iffen , Germany , in
1891 , electricity was carried 10 miles with
a loss of only 28 per cent 'I That wonderful
achievement , however , thaWdd what can bo
done at a pinch , rather than what It Is safe
and proper to do as a jthernl thing a cur
rent ot frightful Intensity traa taken through
the air on wires with no other safeguard
than a death's ' head andTA'crpss bones , nailed
to each pole. Until Ihji ijresenl gigantic
feat at Niagara , It ha/'seldom * / been found
profitable to transmit waters poxver by elec
tricity much further | h ftj0twenty miles.
Where fuel Is dear , as In the mountainous
districts of Arizona , tljU distance can be
much exceeded , But wMertf coal Is cheap
the constant Improvements'm steam and gas
engines make them less'and less expensive
as prime movers ; this. . Vihllo the ordinary
power Is apt to be Irregular In flow , and asks
a considerable outlay to make it available ,
With the transmission of electricity for
distances vastly moro than twenty miles we ;
have long been familiar In the telegraph.
It Is by improving the coverings which pre -
vent a current oozing from Its wire , by rais -
ing the intensity of a current ten-fold , 8r 8a
more ; and above all , by Increasing Its quan
tity so as to make the enterprise worth :
while , that the telegraphy of power has ad -
vanced step by step fromtha telegraphy ol
mere blgnals. And in the- telegraph at worli :
over Ita long mileages , wo note how a re
markable peculiarity of electricity comes to
play. In days of ypre , when letters re

enough. There la much the tame ayitcm ot
relaysIn long distance telegraphy. A mes
sage , let us say , from New York to San
Kranclaco , goes first as fat as Duffalo ; nt
that city the Now York current , very weak
alter Its Journey ot 110 miles , touches off a
second and poweiMl current originating tn
Buffalo , -which. In Its turn , takes the dis
patch to Chicago , There a third current en
ters Into the task , and BO on , until , at the
end ot a succession ot transfers , the words
spelled tn New York arc clicked out In Ban
Francisco. The whole process Is committed
to self-acting repeaters that do their work
In a small fraction ot n second. It Is In
pulling triggers In euch fashion as this that
electricity brings to machinery something
very like a nervous system , so that an Im
pulse of the feeblest can direct and control
the most ponderous wheels and lovers. Doth
workman and artist arc thus permitted to
reserve their strength for tasks more profita
ble than sheer muscular exertion. And yet ,
from force of habit , the exchange ot labor
for ease Is not always welcome. When an
old-fashioned pipe organ Is fitted with elec
tric keys the performer , freed from the
slightest physical strain , has at first an un
pleasant sense ot duly Icfi undone.
Marvelous are the automatic devices that
have sprung un In the wake of electricity.
A torpedo , for example , can bo lifted ,
lowered , propelled , steered , stopped , and ex
ploded through wires which end under the
finger of Its commander , n mile or two away.
In fact , It Is perfectly feasible for Its director
to give nil his orders In advance and build
a torpedo which will take a course and tuinil
a fate of both murder and suicide , prear
ranged In Its springs and magnets ,
In the service of cither war or peace one
would Imagine the ordinary telegraph to be
speedy enough. Not so thinks the Inventor
In "rapid" teleuraphy a message finds Its
way from New York to Chicago at the rate of
150 or more words a minute.
The dispatch Is taken first tea
a machine , which expresses each let
ter In perforations on a paper ribbon ; this
ribbon Is then driven botwcu two pairs of
light metallic springs ; at every perforation
these springs for an Instant come together ,
nllowlntr a current to take lt& path through
the telegraph wlro. At the receiving sta
tion mechanism of much the same pattern ,
but reverted in direction , translates the Im
pulses Into the familiar Morse alphabet.
In thus dividing the task between an operator
and an automatic machine , Intelligence Is
given that part only for which Intelligence
Is required , and for the remaining part the
utmost speed of electric apparatus is Invoked
a fS'ecd which , It Is scarcely necessary to
say , far outstrips that of the most expert
telegrapher. Among the many systems of
rapid telesraphy that Invented by Delaeour
and Dclany dpscrves to be mentioned for Its
uncommon Ingenuity. To understand It ,
let us glance for a moment at an everyday
application of electricity Its use In making
the pendulums of a score or a hundred
clocks keep perfect step , no matter how far
apart they are. In sending an ordinary dis
patch an operator occupies the line for but
a small fraction of the time. The "phonic
wheel" devised by Delaeour and Delany for
one-sixth of the time gives him the line ex
clusively precisely as If no other operator
were engaged upon It. Because six phonic
wheels at each end of a line keep step , the
particular sixths ot two wheels told oft for the
sendlnc and the receiving ot a message co
operate without the slightest confusion. Over
a single wire six telegrams can therefore
travel In company \\lth no jostling whatever.
At the Inception of the telegraph In England ,
no fewer than five wires \\ere demanded to
convey but one message. Wcatherbeaten
strips of wood , showing these flvo wires se
curely embedded , attracted no little attention
at the British electric exhibit at the Colum
bian fair.
To return for a moment to the electric
clock. We can. If we please , seal it up In
a glazed boK , so as to exclude dust , Insects
and rust-creating dampness. Here a path
opens to the inventor who wishes to shun
the resistance \\lflch a rod or a wire \\ould
encounter it It had to move throughout Its
whole- length In actuating a valve , a steam
Indicator , or any similar mechanism. H Is
often of Immense Importance that a bit of
metal at rest can throb with a pulse strong
enough "to do severe drudgery. Three years
ago anj engineer wished to know precisely
how much heat diffused Itself through the
wall ot a steam cylinder. A motionless wire ,
hidden In the metal of the cylinder and con
nected with a delicate electric thermometer ,
answered his question as It otherwise could
not have been answered , for there was no
Impediment from friction or other source
ot error. In a task very different from
the saving of heat , the engineer owes an
other debt to electricity the telephone en
ables him to detect flaws In beams and
shafts to which , In the construction of bridges
and locomotives , are to be committed the
safety of human lives.
Electricity , light , heat and chemlc force
arc lu all their essence mo'tlon. They differ
doubtless somewhat as the movement of a
screw propeller diners from that of the
water wave which circles out from It , eras
as the waves vary from one another In
length and height. Hence it is that elec
tricity can be tlie. source or Issue of any ot
Its kindred , and its peculiar sensitiveness
makes It a means ot surpassing delicacy
In measuring heat , light or chemical action.
Prof. S. P. Langley's bolometer , as recently
Improved , declares a change of temperature
of one-millionth of a degree of Fahrenheit
a refinement scarcely approached by any
other feat of scientific detection. The
responsiveness of electricity has been utlllzet

Selenium , a metal of the same lineage as
sulphur , and betraying Its kinship by a de
cided family resemblance , has the curious
property of transmitting electricity niucl

ly , the tampering of a burglar with bolt or

warnings , too , can register Itself wherever
you choose , so that In case of neglect there
can be no disputing the fact. Now , If an
electric contrivance can call an attendant
to do some needful task , why may not Its
Inventor go a step further and so add to his
device that It shall of Its own motion mee
