A nmchluo which docs tho work o( thirty expert mathematicians Is being conatrurtoil by tho United States la Hi scientific Instru ment shop on Cnpltol hill In Washington. It Is to bo an Improvement on an Instru ment which has been In uso for a number of years In tho bureau of tho const survey, which has chargo of calculating tho tides. This machlno will be In a claFo all by Itself as a mathomatlclnn. England has one which docs a similar class of work, but docs not carry Its calculations so far. Tho Drltlsh Instrument was Invented by Sir "William Thompson, who, In recognition of his serviced to tho scientific world, was clovated to tho peerage and Is now Lord Kelvin. Tho American Instrument was con trived by B. Terrel, an employo of the United Status coast survey, who, before his death a few years ago, was made- a member of tho American Academy of Sciences. Tho American machlno now In uso cost $3,600 to mako. It stands about two feet high and Is eighteen Inches across. Its half a foot of depth Is a mazo of wheels, pulleys and lovers. 'It docs wondorful things. To tho unscientific beholder It Is llttlo short of miraculous. Thoro Is a llttlo crank on tho lower left hand side and by a simple turn of that crank tho machlno will give tho answer to a problem Involving nineteen Bcparato calculations, and the work In dono without any raoro mental effort on the part of tho operator thnn'ls Involved In counting up to nlno. Tho probloms It works out aro the enormously complicated calculations of tidal variations. In tho year 1903 some ship will bo In tho harbor of Karachi, India, at tho head of tho Arabian tea. Supposo thn ship ar rlvcs at 0:30 In tho morning on the first day of October. Tho captain of tho ship will have a printed tublo In his pilot house and In that tnblo ho will read that at that par tlcular hour of that particular day of that particular year thcro Is sovon fcot of tide In tho bay. Uy referring to a' chart show ing tho depth of tho bay, normally, he will know Just how much water thcro Is for his vcstel. Tho calculation by which It Is pos sible to predict soven fcot of tldo at that placo and tlmo was mado by tho Unltoil States government's machlno on tho 17th day of May last In tho city of Washington, on New Jersey nvcnuo, In tho rod brick building next to tho former rcsldenco of tho famotiA Benjamin Duller. Tho machlno owned by tho DrltlBh government Is tho only othor ono by which tho calculation could havo boon done, but on account of tho enormous volumo of such work to bo dono tho two governments try to dlvldo tho terri tory, so It Is safo to say tho American calculation will bo the ono used In this In stance. Ilnala of Cnlculutlona. It would bo qulto futllo to attempt any detailed explanation of tho principle, mechanism or process of tho tldo-prdlctlng machine. It can only bo nald that no year Is Uko any provlous year In tho tlmo of tho ebb and flow of tho tides, and yet, by taking duo account of tho rolattvo plnce of the sun, moon and earth, and figuring whore, In their respectlvo orbits, each will bo at tho moment forecasted, It Is possible to prophesy with all the certainty known to mortal things Just what tho depth of tho tldo will bo at any given spot. Korolgn governments havo frequently np pllcd to tho United States to do some tldo forecasting for hnrbors Important to their commerco with tho machlno Invented by Mr. Terrol, which the new ono Is expected to supersede. They havo been qulto willing to pay for such work, and ns wo havo al most a monopoly of tho machine work, thoy would pay good prices. Hut tho ofQclals of the const survey havo had to decline. The money for such work would go Into tho government treasury, and would not necessarily bo devoted to tho work of this particular bureau, and as the scientific gen tlemen can scurcoly got along with tholr present appropriations, and aro In need always of moro employes to perform tho urgont and nbsolutoly necessary work, they havo not deemed It wlso to seok foreign mnrkcts for this particular machlno-mado product.

A day in London, marked by glorious sunsiilno nnd by such Tare privileges as the sight of royalty do ing Its shopping and tho king himself as ho returned from his experiences on tha dismantled Shamrock II, with a meeting thrown in nt which aristocracy, In tho per son of Lord Knutafoid, was giving Its ad vlco upon how to dispose of the excess of women In this great city, and another meeting at which long-haired reformers of the malo species were charging all the woes of England upon that system of land monopoly in which both royalty and tho aristocracy And their chief support a day of this kind, with the view It afforded bo tween times, as one watched and waited at various "circuses," under the sunlight first nnd then under the gaslight, of what Is darkest nnd what Is brightest In London life such a day doesn't fall often to the lot of ocn a visitor from America, fast nnd enterprising as this species is held to be, and Is, thcicfore, not a day to be passed over without Its record. Having heard that In llcgcnt street and Piccadilly there had been seen during this unbroken week of bright leather moro than tho usual crowd of those who bear titled names, It was with tho greatest In terest that tho armorial bearings of all tho carriages wcro scanned and when tho equlpago Itself guvo signs of promlso tho samo "stare" was unblusblngly transferred to its occupants. Tho duchess of Mont rose had been driving through these shop ping streets qulto recently. So had tho duchess ot Ducclcuch, with their graces of Ucdford and Devonshire; also Consuelo, tho duchess of Manchester. Many, too, had been tho titled personages who had been caught In the act of doing their shopping on foot. The duke and duchess of Somer set, for Instance, and Lady Do Itamscy, Lord Ornioudo and Lord and Lady l'lr bright. This unusual Influx Into London's shopping center ot thoso who have a right to wear coronets and tiaras had been due, wo wcro told, to tho desire of theso priv ileged ones to got well under way as quickly as possible such alterations tn tholr headgear as would Insure a proper show at tho approaching coronation. Hut tho point with mo was that whatever took them there, If theso people wcro really present lu this quarter, It was my duty as an American, having quite tho avcrago con tempt ot my countrymen for titles and tho Uko, to sco and spot them. The troublo Is, however, that theso repre sentatives of great names and big estates do not go around properly labeled. Most of them aro as common in feature and as clumsy In build as the rest ot us. How, therefore, are wo to rccogulzo ono nnothcr? And oven tho few who are noted for beauty whoso portraits you see in so many win dows oven theso do not havo a monopoly either of pretty faces or of tho grace and dignity which aro usually associated with an aristocratic makeup. Any ot these daughters ot so many earls you can match any day, In any featuro of faco or bearing, amongst tho young womon who in tho beau tiful shops of Regent street and elsewhere mako their living by standing behind counters. How, then, on theso famous shop-' ping streets of London wns a comparative Btrangcr to distinguish tho high from tho low, the privileged from the common? , Ho simply couldn't without askiug. Tho fact Is, Indeed, that in Piccadilly and on Regent Btreet in tho afternoon it is not easy to distinguish even tho good from tho bad, let nlono tho aristocratic from tho plebeian; for old habitues aver that there mingle con stantly amongst the princesses and duch esses and tho moro humble, but no less worthy women, whose bright dressing and animated looks are the chief glory of that thoroughfare, no end of ladles, so-called, who belong anywhero but In the society of cither tho titled or virtuous. Hut as to royalty, ono docs havo a few things to guldo hlra when looking for that, chief ot which Is tho armorial sign on the door of its carriage. Whenever this con sists of a crown you may bo sure you havo treed your game. And In theso days of royal mourning you may begin to bo expectant when you seo that the coachman and footman have a band of crapo around their left arm. This last named sign wouldn't, ot course, bo Infallible always, but it was a decided help to your corre spondent, because, noticing tho clrclo of mourning on the lackeys, ho then looked quickly for tho royal sign on tho equlpago and, finding It, followed his cluo in regular Sherlock Holmes stylo, until ho discovered on tho inside tho duke and duchess ot Con naught. But they wero not laboled and while I knew they wero tho kind I was looking for I could be suro of being ablo to call them by name at our next meeting only when I had Inquired who they were from tho liveried Individual who had Just bowed them out of one of tho Regent street shops. I'erhups thero Is another sign by which royalty may bo Identified the royal ladles at any rate viz., by the shade of hair they affect,' and I use tho word "affect" advisedly, though without malice. Threo times within two days I saw Queen Alex andra and Princess Victoria out riding to gether and with them on each occasion were "tho little Yorks," as they are called here. These sprigs of royalty wero In sailor suits, looking for all the world like any other well behaved children. How difficult to realize that one ot them Is heir presumptive to the greatest empire the world has ever known! 13ut it was a beautiful sight very human and really touching. Papa and mamma are absent on a royal mission to the antipodes, but hero are Queen Alexandra, the proud grand mamma, and Princess Victoria, tho doting aunt of these budding royalties, tailing them for a drive In tho park. They do it often. Anybody can see them, and, from tho very charming and human spectaclo they present, It Is Inevitable that anyone who sees them will find his heart newly touched toward a family which tho Kugllsh peoplo rightly believe Is royal In mpre senses than one, Hut It was of tho royal hair I was going to write particularly as n means of Identi fication rather than of those really royal traits about which thcro Is no dispute. It Is of an auburn hue, Inclining to what a woman, If she were sitting In Judgment upon another woman, might maliciously call "red." Hut 1 do not so call It: I rc3cnt tho Imputation nnd tall It auburn. Doth tho queen and Prlnccws Victoria were topped off In this shade of that I am certain, nnd I'm almost as certain thnt the tint favored by tho other royal ladles Is tho same. It Is Insisted, Indeed, by that American who shares tho sorrows ami observations of your corrcppondont, without partaking of tho obtusencas of his sex, that most of tho london women seem to have hair of this shade on occasions of ceremony. This, per haps, Is too sweeping a conclusion. Dut nt any rate It would not bo safo to rely wholly upon this sign as a means of Identifying royalty. For this, better trust to tho crown on tho cnrrlago than to tho hair on the head. he was. Mr. Droadhurst testifies that he was never entertained moro to his liking and never felt more at home. "On my arrival," he says, "his royal highness per sonally conducted me to my rooms, made a careful Inspection to see that all was right, stoked the tires, and then, after satisfying himself that all my wants were provided for, withdrew and left mo for the night." The princess, ho tells us, showed him over her dairy and tho prtneo over his model cottages. To the village club the prince also took him. This, It appears, was a sort of model public house. "Tho prince Invited me," sayi Mr. Droadhurst, "to par tako of refreshment. We had a glass of alo each and sat down In tho club room, whore we found several farm laborers en Joying their half-pints and their pipes. So excitement, no disturbance, 110 uncomfort- ablo feeling was evinced by those present and tho prince put on no air of condescen sion or patronage toward them." Mr. Droadhurst odd that "the alo was good," but he was chiefly Impressed with the stiength of the chairs and tables. "I re marked to tho prlnco that tho chairs looked as though tbey wero of tho best build." "Yes," sold tho prince, "they are firm seats; many a politician wishes his was as safe." So the stories go and such llttlo Incidents as these, showing how human and how free from nffectatlon are the members of this royal family, aro tho things which keep royalty solid and ,mako it as tno years pass increasingly popular. Truo Is It that some would be glad to get rid ot royalty and all the privileges for which It stands. Thoso brainy, large-headed reformers would, whoso meeting I attended Just be fore I saw the king return from his memo rable visit to Sir Thomas Llpton. They wcro discussing the chance of getting back from tho crown aud tho nobles all tho land of these Islands, so that Its products might bo shared by rich and poor aliko nnd tho expenses of government bo drawn from a single tax on land values. Tho dream of that great and good man, Henry Oeorge, and this meeting was ono of the results of tho largo' circulation In England of his first and best book. Dut how little likely of fulfillment Is this dream can be Judged from a single remark of tho chair man. "Wo celcbrato this year," ho said. "tho coming of ago of 'Progress and Pov- of' tfnt ciA i' a n .1 it.. I .0..h0MV!r,.-hai,th,C6 Pl,ayfu' fcmarks- monopoly Is tighter on our throats than ever." What reaction from recent conditions l nt all perceptible In this country is not ngalnst royalty, but In Its favor, for tho aro put down In black and white, how trifling thoy bocim in comparison with that tribute of appreciation which my American pen is Just burning to pay to a queen who Is held, I am certain, In ns much general respect as that which was felt for the good Victoria herself, and who, should sho llvo ns long, will surely bo loved ns well. How delightful that In tho years slnco this writer last saw her time has so llttlo changed the lovely, Innocent youthfulness of her sweet face. It Is Indeed a sweet faco and a young looking face. Impos3lblo would tt be to suspect her, from either faco or hair or manner, of being several times over a grandmamma or of approaching In years that full-habltcd, gray-bearded and rather bald, but still kingly looking mau whoso throne sho shares. After tasking once or twlco In tho gra cious smiles with which Queen Alexandra always greets even tho most lowly of her subjects, one reads tho good things that aro said of her In her personal relations to the needy and afflicted with the feeling that they ought to be truo whether thoy are or not. Ono of the prettiest of these stories Is that In tho hall of Marlborough houso a seamstress was sitting, when a lady passed who, on learning the girl's errand, took her aside, and, after examining the garments she had brought, discovered In conversation that sho was tho support of a widowed mother and was too poor to buy a sewing machine. Tho result of this inter view was that gifts of delicacies often found their way to this girl's home, and nt Christ mas a sewing machlno arrived with a card which proclaimed It "A present from Alex andra," that affording the first knowledgo tho girl had of who It was who, upon tho occasion of her visit, had shown her so much sympathy. Proverbial Is It, too, that In all the traits which betoken kindness of heart and tha disposition to unbend, this newly exalted queen Is fully matched by her llego lord. Just now tho papers aro rovlewing Henry Broadhurst's story of his own llfo, In which ho tolls how he rrho from a stone mason's bench to n placo In Mr. Gladstone's last cabinet. This horny-handed son ot toll was moro than onco entertained at Sandrlngham. His first visit covered threo days. He was without a dress coat. Tho prlnco knew ho did not possess a garment of this kind, and told him to como Just as change of rulers seems to havo given It a new hold on the popular fancy. And, of course, with tho stronger entrenchment of royalty Itself thcro has naturally come a now lease of influence to the class which stands next to royalty. This Is apparent In many ways, but In nono so fully as In tho subsldcnco of what was onco a very strong antagonism to the upper branch of his majesty's parliament. One hears llttlo talk now of abolishing tho Houso of Ixirds and the practical elgns of such a change are even moro of an absent quantity than tho talk about It. Tho fates seem to favor King Edward. What threatens to shako him tn public es teem turns out finally to his advantage. It was so when ho wns prince of Wales. A gambling scandal shows hlra to have a weakness for baccarat. Thero Is a faint howl of Indignation. But evcryono knows that though ho plays for money ho plays squarely and the view finally taken by tho great mass of sport-loving Englishmen was that of the Judge beforo whom this scandal was aired, which was, in substance, "That people ought not to begrudge so hard-working n prlnco n llttlo diversion at the card table, but ought to bo glad that ho found In this way a llttlo rest from labor and euro." So then, eo now. When tho news came that mcraorablo aft ernoon that Shamrock II had been dls mantled and that tho king, who was aboard It as a prlvato gentleman, from pure lnvo of sport, had narrowly, escaped with his life, one's first thought was that ho would be condemned for taking unnecessary risks. Dut tho papers next day told n different talc. "We don't want to keep our king In cotton wool under n glass case," they eald. "Wo llko a man on tho throne." And when at midnight of that day I saw him step Jauntily from his private carriage at Water loo station and ralso his hat In acknowl edgment of tho loyal and grateful greeting of thoso on tho plntform, I saw, not tho king who had gone to visit Sir Thomas Llp ton In tho morning, but ono jwho, by the perils of that memorable day, had been mado stronger than beforo In the affections of his people. HENRY TUCKLEY. go Into six, will ring a boll In protest. It works with a crank, and the only mental effort required Is that Involved in looking at a flguro, which may be anything from ono to nine, and turning the crank that numbor of revolutions.

Whero the column contains three quarters of a million figures, as frequently happons In tho tide computations, tho sav ing In mental effort is very considerable. Tho adding machine is no longer a novelty to the public. The cash register, which Is one of Its modifications, has. familiarized It to all, and there Is now hardly a bank which does not use ono or more. STOllIKS AIIOUT I'JlKACIIKnS. Sir Mountstuart Grant-Duff, In his "Diary," tells a story about Father Healy, who happened to be sitting In a traracar in company with two very lllbred Trotest ants, whoso conversation contained little el bo than tho most rabid abuso of tho Roman Catholic church. As he left tho car Fnther Mealy remarked; "I observe, gentlemen,. that you do not believe In pur gatory." "No, Indeed, we think It Is one of tho many soul destroying errors of your system." "In that case," replied the priest, "you may go to hell," His holiness Is much sought after as a sitter ,by painters, whoso powers are not always equal to their ambition, re lates the Pall Mall Gazette. It Is seldom, however, that an artist meets with a refusal. Quite recently one of thesj painters, having finished his portrait, begged tho Pope to honor him by inscrib ing upon it some scriptural toxt, with his autograph, Tho Pope looked dubiously at the picture. It was mediocre enough and llttlo llko himself; but, unwilling to dis appoint the artist, ho reflected a moment, and then, adapting the familiar lino In St. Matthew to tho peculiar circumstances, he wrote as follows: "He not afraid, It Is I Leo XIII." A clergyman tells this story In The Homlletlo Review: "I was stationed In the town of P during my early ministry and was profoundly Impressed from what I saw that I ought tn preach against tho rebellion against God's law, I selected for a text Isaiah 1, 2: 'I havo nourished and brought up children, nnd they have rebelled against me.' I had formally Intro duced tho subject and repeated tho text that the audlenco might seo tho connection between it and the first proposition, when my little 2-ycur-old boy slipped out of his mother's arms and, taking his stand di rectly In front of the pulpit, gave such a scream of defiance as to startle the entire nudlcnce. It Is needless to say that this, following Immediately tho quotation of tho text, destroyed tho solemnity of tho ser mon, so far as tho audience was concerned," A fow months beforo the death ot Father Boylo of Washington ho built a missionary chapel down by the navy yard and bought at a Junkshop an old bell which had been discarded by one of tho Presbyterian churches. He sent tho bell to a foundry In Georgetown nnd had several Inches of motal pared off tho rim to get rid of a crack, and the harsh and discordant tones of the bell became short nnd sweet. Meeting a Pres byterian parson not long after, Father Boyle called his attention to the change, and the latter coutd scarcely believe It was the same bell. "What in tho world did you do with the bell," Inquired tho Presbyterian pastor, "to cause such a change In tho tone?" "We blessed It and blessed It nnd blessed It until we got (he Presbyterlanlsm out of It," retorted Father Boyle, "and then It sounded all right." A curato up north, having preached a very clever sermon on tho Sunday, called upon a certain colonel on the Monday espe cially to ask his opinion, relates Modern Society. "How did I like the sermon?" said the colonel. "Very much, Indeed. It's one of my favorites." "Ono of your favorites?" stammered the curate, slightly puzzled. "I do not under stand." The colonel regarded hlra with a twinkle at the back of his eyes. "Of course, I won't say a word." he said, "but I knew very well that you stole it and also whero you stole It from." "Sir," said the curate, and ho spoke from out tho whirlwind of his righteous Indigna tion. "I am not In tho habit, sir, ot steal ing my sermons, I fear you are laboring under a mistake, and cr forgetting your self, sir. I must ask you to apologize." The colonel was silent a moment. Then he eald: "It may be that I have made a mistake. Wait a moment. I will mako sure," Going to his bookcase, 'he took down a massive tome of sermons a rare and almost rorgotten work. He turned to a certain J page, and on apologetic, humble look came upon his face as he glanced up nt the curate. "I beg your pardon," he said. I "I apologize.

His father was the first pastor of tho Second Parish church, and ono sug gestion Is that n statue of the son be erected in Lincoln park, opposite that church. Rev. Edward Everett Hale of Boston said recently: "When I was a young man studying for the ministry I camo to the conclusion that It was n good tlmo to re tire from tho pastorate of a church when ono got to bo 40. When I got to bo 40 I changed my mind nnd thought 60 was the proper ago for retiring; then I later came to sco things still differently nnd decided that when I was 60 I should drop tho work.

I can truthfully uy that Wine of Cardul hit bttn the greatest help U mc. The Wins mi brought me back to health. Three yean ago I was past walking at all. One day I read a Ladles' Birthday Almanac and read of many women who had been In my fix being helped by Wine of Cardul. So I tried it and It did all that was claimed for it. I had falling of the womb and had fainting spells. I could not stand or walk. I have used three bottles and now I can do all my housework. I will tell all of my friends of the great Wine ol Cardul for the good It has done me. Mrs. ANNIE BELL WINECARMII What can be more distressing than the feeling that tome weight Is pulling down on your abdomen? Following the tint abdominal pains inflammation usually sets in and shooting pains and dull aches make life a misery. The liga-' ments which hold the womb in place soon become diseased and weakened and the womb let down out of position. Every strain on the body is felt there and that Is why Mrs. Bell said "I could not stand or walk".
