It Is an axiom of social evolutionist
that In the not far distant future nearly
all merely muscular Industry will be super
Reded by machinery. And one at all famil
iar with what la being done by mechanism
miiHt also be aware that a great deal of
mental Industry Is being superseded, and
therefore It may be thought that In the
Intellectual field mechanical Inventions are
likely to go as far aa In the muscular.
That, of course. Is a mistake. There Is
do exercise of muscular energy which
cannot be more or lens successfully Imi
tated by mechanism; but the brain work
which moy be taken over by machinery la
restricted within narrow limits that can
by no possibility be overstepped.
Thoe limits, though they are very real,
are not always very obvious, and to the
casual observed It must sometimes appear
that a kind of mechanical intelligence is
being evolved. From the miller's little
bell, that sets up a fussy tinkling the
moment the hopper runs empty, tip to the
calculating machines that are now to be
found In banks and Insurance offices,
clearing houses and observatories, there
are so many mechanical substitutes for
brain workers that it Is difficult at times
to realize that It Is, after all, only mechan
ism and not Intelligence that Is being
Soma of the touches of what, for con
venience, we may call mechanical Intelli
gence, to be met with In various odd cor
ners of the Industrial and commercial
world are really quite amusing, and they
have their prototype In that little bell of
the old windmill.
The Screw-Making Machlae.
There Is, for instance, to be seen in any
screw factory a different application of
that device. The machinery takes hold
of a rod of metal, pulla It rapidly along,
giving the end of It the general shape of
a screw, cuts the thread around it and the
Mot In the head, and then anlpa off a
perfect screw. If you watoh the thing
actually making the screws, the idea
strikes you that it Is merely a piece of
mechanism, but when the maohlne cornea
to the end of Its material and gives a
sharp. Impatient ring of a bell for the
attendant to bring more, you experience
ji uncanny reeling that the thing la
The machine by which railway tickets
are printed gives an exhibition of Intelli
gence, or what looks very Ilka It Rail
way tickets are not, aa might be supposed,
printed In large sheets and afterward cut
up. The cardboard is cut Into tickets first
and printed one by one afterward. The
little blank cards are put in a pile In a
kind of perpendicular spout, and the ma
chine slips a bit of metal underneath the
bottom of the spout and pushes out the
lowest ticket in the pile to be printed and
consecutively numbered.
It Is of no use trying to print a baa
ticket The machine finds out an Imper
fect blank in an Instant and flatly refuses
to have anything to do with it Tear off
the corner of one of the blta of card and J
put in into tne spout with the others In
order to see what will happen and It re
fuses to budge again until somebody comes
and removes the lmposter. Pull out the
damaged ticket and the mechanism will set
briskly to work again.
Higher Flights of Iatelllgence.
However, there are far higher flights of
mechanical Intelligence than this. The
work of hundreds and thousands of clerks
has within the last few years been taken
over by small machines very much like
typewriters In appearance, by which col
umns of money In small or large items are
Instantly added up with none of the risk
of error which even the most ' practiced
accountants are liable to make. There
are. we will suppose, a hundred checks to
be added. They are handed to the oper
ator of an adding machine, by whom the
various amounts are registered on a roll
of paper by the manipulation of keys, as
in the case of the typewriter, and when
the whole hundred checks have been
printed a lever Is pulled and the sum total
is shown Instantly. . Among the greatest
feats performed by the cleverest of bank
clerks In the old days was the running up,
or a column of money by a single process;
that Is, taking In columns of dollars and
cents at the same time. The adding ma
chine does that, in some Instances, with
any number of checks, not only by a single
operation for both columns, but by one
motion of Its mechanism. It beats the
greatest achievement of the old bank clerk
The work of these machines is quite ele
mental compared with that of some other
mechanical arithmeticians. There are ma
chines that calculate to fifteen places of
decimals, and will carry out the most
formidable computations in ever so many
modes of notation.
Meohaalral Calcalatora.
The clerical staffs of many of the big
insurance companies have of ' late year
been considerably reduced by the employ
' ment of mechanical calculators. One of
these, the Invention of a German, is a
compact little affair, resembling a music
box. It may be made to perform almost
Instantaneously the most portentlous sums
It is the duty of every expectant
mother to prepare her system for the
coming of her little one ; to avoid as
far as possible the suffering of such
occasions, and endeavor to pass
through the crisis with her health
and strength unimpaired. This she
way do through the use of Mother's
Friend, a remedy that has been so
long in use, and accomplished so
much good, that it is in no sense an
experiment, but a preparation which
always produces the best results. It
is for exernal application and so pen
etrating in its nature as to thoroughly
lubricate every muscle, nerve and ten
don involved during the period before
baby cornea. It aids nature by ex
panding the sic in and tissues, relieves
tenderness and soreness, and perfectly
prepares the system for natural and
safe motherhood. Mother's Friend
has been used and endorsed by thou
sands of mothers, and its use will
prove a comfort and a benefit to any
woman in neea oi bucu a remedy.

In addition, subtraction, multiplication by
one or two factors, division, squaring and
cublnc It is required, for instance, to
multiply 831,876 by 24. The first factor is
set by touching- little knots representing
631,976. To multiply the other factors you
turn a handle four times, push along a
slide one place, and turn the handle twice,
then push the slide another place onward
and turn the handle nine times. The long
multiplication Is now done without the
possibility of error so far as the machine
is concerned, and the dial shows 961,544.900.
In the same mechanical way may be done
all the other arithmetical processes.
Among the latest of the applications of
mechanism to work is that which has
Mterto required the exercise of some little
brain power, such as the cash registers;
but a still newer and far more remark
able piece of mechanism Is one Intended
to do away with the necessity for' any
brain cudgeling over many shop counters.
This Is certainly a very interesting piece of
work, though the makers are careful not
to explain or exhibit the Internal working
of It. It Is a scale which not only shows
the weight of goods put into it, but the ex
act value of the goods at any price per
pound to which a rate pointer may be set.
Thus, if this pointer be set . at 11 .cents
per pound, and two pounds seven ounces
of meat or anything else be put Into the
scale, the indicator on the dial ' will In
stantly show the correct charge to the cus
tomer; or if a customer should wish to
spend $1 on a 'certain article at so much
per pound, the scale will show precisely the
weight that the purchaser should have for
the money.
The mathematical faculty has often been
said to be the lowest of the intellectual
powers, and it is certainly curious to see
Its functions being thus taken up by mech
anism In so many directions. Philadelphia

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, speaking to
some London medical students, told several
stories illustrating what he called "the
romance of medicine."
The fashion of wearing wigs, for In
stance, was due to a skin disease which
produced bald patches on the august head
of Francis I of France. He got a wig and
his oourtlers followed suit. Just as they '
all whispered when he had an attack of
"One can trace for many years," says
the same authority, "certainly from 1802.
the Inception of that disease which killed
Napoleon at St. Helena In 1821. In 1802
Bauriicnne said: "I have often seen him
at Molmalson against the right arm
of his chair and. unbottonlng his coat and
waistcoat, exclaim, 'What pain I feel!'
"That was perhaps the first allusion to
his stomachic and hepac trouble, but
from then onward It continually appeared,
like Banquo at the banquet. He could
scatter the hosts of Europe and alter its
kingdoms, but he was powerless against
the mutinous calls of his own mucous
membrane. ' ,
"Again and again he had attacks of
lethargy, amounting almost to collapse,
at moments, when all his energy was
most required At the crisis of Waterloo
he had such an attack and sat on his horse
like a man dazed for hours of the action.
Finally the six years at St. Helena fur
nish a clinical study of gastric disease
which was all explained in the historical
poet-mortem examinations, which disclosed
cancers covering the whole wall of the
stomach and aotualy perforating It at the
hepatic border.
"Napoleon's whole career was profoundly
modified by bis complaint. There have
been many criticisms net unnatural onvs
of his petty, querulous and undignified
attitude during his captivity; but if his
critics knew what It was to digest their
food with an organ which had hardly a

they would perhaps take a more generous
view of the conduct of Napoleon. For
my own part. I think that his fortitude
was never more shown than during those
years the best proof of which was that his
guardians hac no notion how ill he was

"History abounds with examples of what
I have called the romance of medicine.
Look at the men, for example, who were
the prime movers in the French revolution.
They were a diseased company a patholog
ical museum. Was Marat's view of life
tained by the loathsome skin disease, for
which he was taking hot baths when Char
lotte Corday(cut him off? Was the Incor
ruptible but bilious Robesplerro the victim
of his own liver? Was Couthon's heart
embittered by dinfigured limbs?

the illustrations ot the philosophy which
is only open to the me'dlcai thinker. How
many times do the most Important his
torical developments appear to depend upon
small physical cause? There Is, for ex
ample,' the case of the revocation of the
edict of Nantes. By this measure the
whole history of France has been pro
foundly modified, because by that action
there was given forth the Hugenots.
"Now, how came Louis XIV, who had
always held out upon this point, to give
way at last to the pressure of Mme de
Maintenon and his clerical advisers? The
answer lay in one of his molar teeth, it
is historical that he had for .some months
bad toothache, carles, abscess of the Jaw,
and finally a sinus which required opera
tion, and It was at this time, when he
was pathologically abnormal and Irritable,
that he took the step which has modified
history. Great results may depend upon a
