The XI *� trie MoUr Hat El perleneed , WMB^vrfnl I>�T�loptttent miring the t Put Few Years-Soma of the Many ( PnrpoMt for Which It VtimUhrt Toner. The advance made by electrical science and application during the last few ycnni has been �o phenomenal that U U hard to define it-a extent, and it Is only when an attempt la made to follow the development) In any particular branch that nn approximate idea of lt� mighty progress as a whole and 1U far reaching and ever widening Influence In the industrial world can be arrived at. Prom an investigation of one field alone, that of the electric motor, it at onco becomes Apparent that a revolution of limitless extent is being effected In industry and manufacture. There can be no doubt that the electric motor lit the most simple and effective piece of mechanism yet devised for the transmission and transformation of energy in ft trustworthy and economical manner for useful work. It Is quite possible that Reveral of those who read these lines may never have Been an electric motor, yet it is nonetheless true that there are today already lu operation in tlii* vountry over 30,000 electric motors of various sixes engaged in an endless variety of occupations. One company building motors report* that Its machines are now employed In nearly 200 distinct industries and that new uses are found daily. This development has been seen nl-most entirely within the last three years, GtiOWTU OP XLXCTBIO LIGHTING. From 1880 up to UB7 electrical eugfueers and contractors hud given their attention mainly to the installation of electric light lng plants Id American towns and cities with the result that there were some 1,1200 central stations In operation supplying the arc light or the Incandescent light, and sometimes both. A great many of these statidds paid well from the start, but it was soon found that the lighting business was after all a limited one-that is, It could only be carried on during the hours of darkucas, so that a valuable plant often lay idle sixteen or eighteen hours ont of the twenty-four. Yet the current which such a plant could generate would lend itself as readily to driving an electric motor as to furnishing light In a lamp, and the same circuit tliatconvcyed it to the lamps would qIko convoy it to the motors. It was this fact that gave a great stimulus to the electric motor industry about three years ago, and led to the perfecting of what had theretofore been a very crude uiul cuiiilM'.rBorne piece of mechanism. As is now very generally known, the electric motor has but one moving part, the revolving armature, and by means of a pulley plnced nt. the end of the armature Bhaft lis jinwer can lie applied to any piece of apparatus or machinery known to the arts, lint up to nearly all thoclectric motors h'ul been Iwdly designed and poorly built, ami the current that should have been converted into power was simply wasted in developing heat, so that tiie machines rapidly burnt out and otherwise became useless, and were altogether too expensive to run. 8AVIV0 IN MOTOIti). At the present time, however, there are fteverul electric motors In the market of excellent design and workmanship for which as high au efficiency as ov^r 90 per cent, is claimed, and there can be no doubt that tho rate of efficiency in the smaller si7.es as well an in the larger Is the highest that has yet been attained by anypioce of jmwer transmission machinery. Thus an electric motor of one-half or one-quarter horse power will easily show as high an efficiency as that of another sort of motor of ten or fifteen horse power, yet nobody dreams of expecting a gas engine or a Steam engine of one-quarter or one-half horse power to give anything but a small return upon the fuel applied to it. Moreover, with the electric motor an ' pormous advantage bos been the fact that Allien it has been installed and connections f.Ttt- e ijet-H nmde with the circuit* counect-t with the central station, it is practl-eady that minute for work. AU that sary is the turning of a switch and nt Is Instantaneously there.

It feeds upon ducks, pigeon*, hares, grouse and poultry. It 1* the type of a true hunting falcon, flying rapidly a few feet above the ground, and descending with a swift rush on the luckless prey detected by its sharp eyes. It is daring to rashness, and unlucky is the farmer whose poultry yard becomes familiar ground to one of these hawks. Almost before th� frightened fowls have had time to sound the alarm It has selected and seised its victim and is away. Audubon once saw one of these falcons rush upon a flock of the birds called grnckles as they were crosBing the Ohio river. The birds in their fright collected into a compact mass, the hawk dashed among them and, seizing first one and then another, killed five before the flock could eM-ivpe to tho woods on the further bank.-II. W. Uonshaw in St. Nicholas, Working Together. fV visitor to tho convention of working-women in New York Haya that a large proportion of the audience wens young girls whose wealth and social position rendered any work unnecessary to their support. Yet they did work actively and effectively for the help of their less fortunate sisters in organizing and sustaining ihe guilds, reading rooms, gymnasiums, etc., which give tho frleudless working girl in our great cities the comfort and protection of homes. The relation between the two classes of girls was most cordial and hearty. Tho shabbily dressed shop woman and seam stress served on the same committees with the daughters of wealthy men from Murray Hill with the hope of helping their slaters who are still poorer and more needy than any of themselves. For tho time all of the committee forgot that there was any difference of fortnno or education between them. They were only women working shoulder to shoulder In a noblo cause. This little incident Is noteworthy and important. There ia no town or village in which such hearty Christian feeling, such rational womanly action would not do much toward bridging the widening gulf between the poor and the rich. Combinations of capitalists and combinations of workingmen cannot bring utter ruin upon each other if workingwomen and the daughters and wives of wealthy men join to show how easy and effective is a union of the two classes in good, wholesome work.-Youth's Companion. Money Bent in Letters. The carelessness of people who inclose money in letters Is most surprising. Probably the most flagrant case of it was that of a Chicago man who mailed an envelope with $4,000 In it, and forgot to put any writing on the inside or any address on the outside. He got the sum back by npplica-toti to headquarters at Washington, after having much trouble in proving his claim. Money is sent by post In all sorts of queer ways, the notion being to disguise it as much as possible. At Christmas time particularly such tricks are practiced as poking bllht In the fingers of gloves or mittens knitted by affectionate old tabby cat relatives for little ones far away. Small sums of cash are concealed forslmilarpurposesln candy boxes and secreted with merchandise in every conceivable fashion. Coin is very apt to bo dispatched between two pieces of pasteboard, perhaps glued on. It ia always mailed in that manner abroad, for the reason that it is against the law in Europe to send anything made of gold or silver by post.-Chicago Times. eat .1 station with the 'f.smlt the if that all he supply j in turu-ir ate r.

Inside the paling in convenient proximity to these doors wero grouped some forty of la jeunc**sc de Nlmes, of age varying from 10 to 60. There were soldiers and policemen off duty, clerks from town shops and hands" from the neighboring farms, boys with dogs and boys without, all swayed by the same passion for the classlo diversions of the arena. A cry is raised of "Kile vlentl" and a tumultuous movement arises among the youth, followed by a series of loud thuds, as eighty heels smite the wooden paling and eighty legs are adroitly swung over to the side of safety. The alarm proving false, they cautiously return to the post of danger, and not until this escapade has been several times repeated do the barn doors actually turn upon their creaking hinges and admit to the arena a lean and wistful looking heifer. She let her eve drop languidly, first on the jeunesse astride the fence, and then with a shade more of Interest upon ourselves. Even, thus, beholding her full face, we could but' own that she was a small creature. A little triangular black head, with moody mouth, sleepy eyes and widely branching horns, two short, thin legs and a waving tail were all that we could discern. After fow moments of suspense one of the more adventurous youths stole forward on tip toe, whooped in the annual's ear and then dashed back to the fence amid lond applause. Moolly turned her head half around and contemptuously switched her tail. The experiment was repeated from the other side of the oval space, and she started on a calm trot for the red doors, only to find them closed. Her movement had quite sufficed, however, to clear the arena of human combatants, with the exception of ono plump sergeant, who missed his leap over the paling and lay biting the dust. Wo waited impatiently for the next act of the drama, but nothing ensued, and the conviction slowly forced itself upon us that the fun was all over. "It was very interesting, wasn't it, ladies?" said the guardian's wife, as she accepted her fee and ceremoniously bowed us out.-Harriet W. Preston in Century. Au Kqulno Marrel. Now Yorkers are not easily taken aback, but a large number of those who happened to bo In the neighborhood of the Tribune building tho other day were considerably surprised, to say tho least. A man seated in a buggy, and driving what at first sight appeared to Lo.M), drew up at the euro. Ihe man's name is Prank Frauudfelter, of Easton, Pa., and he said the animal was a "buffalo horse." He had Just bought it from Oscar Stemplcr, in Monroe county, Pa., who had bought the animal's mother (a mare) out of a drove of Texas horses about twelve years ago. Tho "buffalo horse" is a gelding, 15 1-3 hands in height and weighs 1,160 pounds. It Is completely covered with a coat resembling coarse buffalo fur, in close curls eight inches long, growing equally thick and long on all portions of the body and legs. In the winter, Mr. Fraundfelter said, the hair grows much longer. This long, curly buffalo hair gives the horse a remarkablo appearance, the more so as the hair on the legs is as dense as any other part, making them look like four thick fur covered posts. In its gait it resembles a cow more than a horse. Nevertheless it is said to be good roadster and has tho pulling power of a mule. The shape of the animal's head distinctly that of a buffalo, and in lion of a mane there is an extra growth of brown hair. In Its hindquarters, also, the horse closely resembles tho bnffalo. The owner said that neither he nor Mr. Stemplcr ever heard of a similar animal.-New York Tribune. A NIGHT W1TB. A CORPSE AN EXPRESS MESSENGER'S ADVENTURE IN  THE WILD WEST.

I refer to the fusilado of torpedoes which now and then salutes the ears of passengers In the cable cars. Little boys place rows of them along the rails, and when the car passes over them they go off with a report loud enough to give a very unpleasant shock to people whose nerves arc at all sensitive. I suppose the conductors think that as there are no horses to be frightened by the noise, it makes no difference, but I think they should have some consideration for the feelings of their passengers. For my port I shall hereafter patronize some line which runs horse cars, as they will probably be more particular.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat. _ M'hat One Man Ha* Done.

A boiler to work safely under a pressure of 250 pounds would consist of an inner shell capable of withstanding a pressure of 150 surrounded by a shell whose safe working pressure was 100, Reducing valves allow sufficient steam to pass from the inner boiler to the space between the shells to maintain the required pressure, and the inner shell is thus subjected to an unbalanced pressure of only 150 pounds, although containing steam at 250. Each compartment is, of course, provided with safety valves.-New York Commercial Advertiser. Men Don't Smoke lu the. Rata.

The official report in the German relolis-tag by Commissioner Major Caede showed that the Russian army, according to the plan of mobilization for 1880, on a war footing was 2,579,000. That of Germany was only 2.�00,000 or 2,000,000, including 177,680 drilled reserve men. That of Franoe was 3,220,000 and 174,000 drilled reserve men. Germany had two or three hundred thousand men fewer than Franco, The army of Austria, with JIungary, had war footing of 1,150,000, and that of Italy 1,090,000, so that tho triple alliance powers have 5,140,000 In all, against 5,805,000 of Russia and France-that is, about 600,000 men fewer.__ There is said to be a growing demand among the working classes of Liverpool for books of technology. The report of the Lyceum library shows tbat fiction iB still for in the lead in popular favor. The nutn ber of works of this class circulated last year was 40,500, while the classics found only 2*1 readers, and books relating to languages 230. Works on the drama fouud no more than 808 readers. Poetry is nearly three times as popular, for there wero 854 readers in this section. The larger figures after fiction are magazines 10,088, history 4,201, travels 8,786, antiquities 1,002, and theology 1,038. In an alley -which by an easy descent loads from lowsr Broadway to the inferno of drays, ferries and gamins on North river a chop house burrows beneath the confusion of that quarter. In the little basement room are cobwebs, tallow candles, pewter tobies, 'alf-and-'alf and steaks of "hung" and "high" meat in the approved English fashion. Thero, late one night, sat a half dozen workmen from a big express building near by andi the interloper who sets down this record. Tho talk had sunk to the matter of corpses, which often travel by express, though never by invitation of the express messenger. During the winter of 1886," said a burly man with a shook of black hair, "X was in the Wells-Fergo service between Kansas City and San Francisco. The run was made upon the Atchison, Topeka and Santo Fo and Southern Pacific railways, that join at Deming, On Christmas eve, bearing eastward, with the journey so far done from 'Frisco, tho train drew out of Yuma, facing the Arisona desert to the midst of an astonishing storm of sleet and rain. Yuma marks the California line, and there, as we took on the stage com pany's strong box, I counted upon the last disturbance of the night. Until daybreak the journey lay through alkali stretches, where at every 100 miles the train rushes shrieking through a poor, uncommercial cluster of huts and halts long enough for the locomotive to take on water. "Unscheduled stopB, however, wero not infrequent at that time, and there hung within the car a rack of repeating carbines, charged and primed. TRAVELING WITH $100,000. "In taking account of the Yum* strong box, weighing nearly two hundred pounds and 'vouchered' to contain 100,000 in gold, I glanced at the carbines. I looked again when I remembered that the safe contained as much more. "Joachim Murilla burned me out of the cur for loss than half that, and gave me tho bullet that lames my back," said the burly man with a smile. "I had hardly a dollar in tho car the night 1 stood off the rustlers at Dodge City. I reflected, what will tho company expect now with $100,000 on my shoulders? "I assorted expressage, linted bills anil overhauled the carbines as the train flew and the storm beat. 1 knew the route so well that I could call the towns and tank: m the engine whistled or stopped. '* 'Toltec,' I thought, as at midnight the hoarse whistle began to sound. 'We pass her with a "howdy." No, by George! we're gdtlig to stop.' "I opened the door enough to see n lantern swaying at a small station and a little group on the platform surrounding a box and evidently preparing to put it on board. " 'Tumble it in quick,' I said. "*A little slow, partner,'replied a man on the platform.   'It's a coffin.' "A moment later I was alone with the corpse in a prison as secure as a tomb, while the wheels roared beneath and the storm raved outside. "Somehow I was nervous and couldn't keep my eyes off that coffin. I fancied that it moved and was slowly rising up on end, or that it was, preparing an onslaught; then that it was "about to disclose the dead. "The last of these notions-that the occupant of the coffin might liberate herbelf -got hold of me and I couldn't shake it off. The box was of unusual size and exceptionally ill made. The wood waarough, warped and filled with knots ami knot holes. All this might easily have been due to the limited facilities of a desert town. I dou't know why, but I couldn't resist turning it over, face down. It seemed to me to roll horribly. "Then I imagined I heard a noise at the car door and ut the same moment a move ment in the coffin. I knew it was foolibh, but I rolled the stage company's strong box, with its 200 pounds of gold, to th coffin and set it upon the lid toward th� larger end. SHOOTING AT A BOX. "Then X lighted my pipe. I noticed after ward, though I didn't think of it at the time, that most of the knotholes toward the head of the coffin were covered and sealed by the flat iron bottom of the strongbox. "Several minutes passed, and the engine had blown ita 'view halloa!' at a wayside cattlu town, when suddenly souuds began to issue from the box. There was no doubt about it this time. There was a scuffling, a groaning, a kicking against the aides. "To say that I was horrified doesn't ex ?reaa it. The struggle in the box continued, staggered to the gun rack, tore down a carbine, cocked, abiicil and fired It through the box ten feet away. "Muffled shrieks now mingled with the thumping and threshing in the box. I fired again. The shrieks were redoubled. 1 bo-came frantic and shrieked liku u lunatic myself, while I fired again and again at the box until the magazine was exhausted, and then I rushed to get another. But the pine box was split and torn; the iron box was slowly crushing it down: through gaps in the wood blood was streaming and no sounds whatever issued from the coffin. "Finally a long, deep groan eacaped from the box. Plainly it was a man's voice. I managed to tear away the shattered lid. There was no coffin inside, but only the body of a man torn with a dozen terribl wounds. He wore the garb of the frontier, with knife and pistol at his belt, and a loaded Winchester lay at his side. He was conscious and gasped, 'Raise me up!' Don't water ut tank 22,' said the man with difficulty, and Ids jaw fell. "The engine stopped at water tank No, 21, a half hour behind schedule time. Shots were fired through the cab of the locomotive and the express car as the train dashed by tank 23. The dead bandit was burled without identification at Derning, and some am scrawled upon the head board; 'Quien Saber'" A long breath followed the Btory, and then a small man over in the corner rose to go. The movement stirred the others, and they, too, got upon their feet and went out. "Did you know that stout man with the bushy black hair?" I asked the waiter who brought me a check. "Yes, sir." "Who Is he?" "Leastways, sir, 1 don't know his name, but everybody calls him 'Truthful Jim, sir.

Tale of a Haunted Wrap. A lady Rpenfe the night at a friend's house as a guest.

The lady wore the wrap all night and found tt very comfortable, but. nevertho-leas, she did not rest very well on account of mysterious noises that she heard. Sometimes she even imagined that she heard groans, so that she was more than once on the point of getting up to see what the matter was. In tht morning at breakfast she was asked by her hoetess how ehe had slept, and replied that she had been considerably disturbed by unaccountable Bounds.
