With a twist of the valve he Hustles the compressed air out the Ordinary atmosphere rushes in. The upper door is thrown up and gods Sun and air come to the prisoner. The reaction is too severe. The blood released by the sudden vanishing of 30, 40, 50 pounds of air pressure on each Square Inch of the body refuses to act normally. Heart and lungs weaken vitality ebbs. A Sand hog is never sure that the next trip May not be his last the practical limit below ground is 50 pounds of air pressure. The men that can work in that atmosphere Are masters of their Trade. Yet now and then a mantis met with who has the strength to go farther. A Cromwell Childe in Leslie a monthly. Where the leak was. Once years ago w Hen Daniel web a ter was Secretary of state there was an important foreign matter up for discussion before the Cabinet and the utmost secrecy was of course maintained but the whole thing was blazoned about to a few hours after the Cabinet meeting. So the president hastily sent for his Cabinet to talk Over this leak. Each Man bad a different idea of it. Finally or.

He explained that if by standing close to the door outside the Cabinet room you held your ear to it you could not distinguish one intelligible word but if moving Back from the door and a Little to one Side upon a certain spot in the carpet you kept As attentive ear every word could be plainly Beard As though whispered. Some enterprising eavesdropper bad bin experimenting with the door and had found that upon that exact spot there was some acoustic property of the door or room that conveyed the found in perfect evening Post As so much Money is spent on Cotillon favors it seems a pity that the gifts Given a re not of a More enduring Quality. While a certain amount of glitter and tinsel undoubtedly adds very much to the spectacular effect of the room souvenirs of a less perishable nature Are much More appreciated by the recipients. They need not necessarily be valuable Al though it goes without saying that the Silver articles pins etc., that Are often Given Are highly appreciated but they might be something that can be kept.

Still there Are certain persons who Are naturally pleasing yet fail to make the Best of themselves. They Are left in the background chiefly by reason of their own want of perception and too much diffidence.

A it is a great mistake a she says Quot to depreciate ones own Powers of attraction either to oneself or to others. The former renders you constrained and self conscious in your manners and As people Are very Apt to take you at your own valuation it is equally had to run oneself Down to others. A modest Assurance if one can Combine the two qualities is far better. This is far removed from conceit which of Coutsos is odious.

It is said that France is trying to buy 100,000 Square lilies of land from Brazil. The Monroe doctrine declared that the Western hemisphere is no longer on to colonization by european Powers. The colonies which they already held they could retain without infringing the Monroe doctrine though they have since lost most of them. But they cannot consistently with tha established policy of this country acquire new colonies or add to those they had before. The traditional policy of this country therefore would not permit France to acquire from Brazil a Colony twice As Large As England and half As Large As France.

Her seven stages. It is held by a writer on woman that the seven stages of woman a life May be reckoned &9 composed of multiples of a even. The first seven years Are infancy the second seven childhood the third seven girlhood and the fourth seven bring fully developed womanhood. The fifth seven that is from the age of 28 to 35�? May be looked upon As the infancy of age for during that period one learns to exercise the faculties and perceptions that have developed in the preceding years. Until tue age of 42 the lessons go on and character is being matured and fixed. After that few changes Are made in the real person. Slight varieties and variations of opinion Are Likely to occur but nothing deep or vital to transform the life. A a hit in to in w he tvs 4� 4 woman am Home.

Queen Elizabeth began to have suitors when she was 13 months old Aud the procession of discomfited gentlemen ends Only when she was so far advanced in years that the idea of marriage became ridiculous. For reasons of state it was important that she should marry her ministers fearing More than anything else the storms of a disputed succession. So Oue by one Kings and princes lords gentlemen and commoners avowed their love. They were most of them listened to smiled at sighed Over and dropped. The fact was though admiration was a necessary to this strange woman As food though flattery was never too Gross nor adoration Ever too palpably assumed when it came to marriage she walked.

The Missouri Senate has passed a Bill affixing the penalty of death to child abduction. This will strike most people As a wholesome and necessary measure in View of the enormity and cruelty of the crime especially when it is remembered that the recent escape from punishment for it in a Case that has attracted the attention of the entire nation makes the danger of its repetition greater. It will hardly fall to be noted also that wretches Are threatening to torture children and put out their eyes in Case ransoms Are not paid.

Four sturdy lives stand Between Edward Vii and a possible lapse in the succession of the House of Guelph to tin British throne. When Loyal englishmen mention his majesty they Are very Apt to add a whom god preserve Quot and Liis is in fact the official Way of wishing Long life and health to the occupant of the throne. But As the Mem m photo by Milne. Edinburgh. Duke of Cornwall and York. World lately Learned even English royalties Are mortal and the Good wishes of his subjects Are not Likely to prolong the life of his majesty when the last Call comes. It is at any rate some Comfort to the Well wishers of the dynasty that now reigns in Britain to know that they Are of a Long lived Aud prolific Stock. For two generations at least the succession in a straight line is assured and it seems Likely that the present Royal family of the a tight Little Island will continue to reign until some change takes place in its form of government. The present heir apparent to the British throne is George Frederick Ernest Albert Duke of Cornwall and York who when he assumes the reins of government will be known As George v. He was born on june 3, t8g5. At Marlborough House the London residence of the former Prince of Wales. The Duke of Cornwall and York is not yet the Prince of Wales and reference to him As such is somewhat premature. That title does not descend by right to the eldest son of the Sovereign hut is conferred of him by Royal Patent. Edward Vii was made Prince of Wales when lie was 4 weeks old and he will no doubt in the near future Confer the same title on his Sou. The Duke of York is the second and Only surviving son of his majesty the first having been the Duke of Clarence who died in 1892. At the time of the death of the Duke of Clarence he was affianced to Princess May of tick and soon thereafter photo by Luchea a Mullins London. Prick Albert and Princess Victoria. Rumor connected the names of the Princess and i Ruee George. Queen Victo Ria heartily approved of the match and the Young couple were married on july 0, 1893. They have four children three sons and a daughter Prince Eduard. Prince Albert Princess Victoria and Prince Henry. Common report has it that the Duke of York before his marriage to Princess May was mor fanatically United to a daughter of an English Admiral. If this marriage really occurred it was invalid in the eyes of English Law and it was diplomatically suppressed. In Justice to the Duke however. It must be said that prior to the announcement of his Espousal to Princess May the archbishop of Canterbury proclaimed from the Steps of the Chapel Royal that there was no ecclesiastical or 1c Legal obstacle to the Union. The Duke of York has been known As a the Sailor Prince Quot of england., for he was educated for the Royal Navy and has served in it for Many years. He entered the Navy with his older brother in 1877. He begun As a Cadet Aud advanced through All the grades in regular succession. In 1899 he obtained his first command a torpedo boat and his latest commission was As commander of ii. M. S. Crescent. The heir apparent is about 5 feet 6 inches in height but he has not the kingly appearance of his Royal father. He wears a full Beard in accordance with the English naval custom. In his manner he is kill Day gentle and unassuming and although he has a High sense of the responsibilities of his position his general appearance is not that generally ascribed to one born in the purple. In fact a the divinity that doth hedge a King is conspicuously absent about the heir apparent to the throne of great Britain and India. He bears a striking resemblance to his first Cousin the Czar of Russia. The eldest son of the Duke of York �9 a Happy healthy youngster of 6who does not let the fact that there Are Only two lives Between him and the throne stand in the Way of his thorough enjoyment of existence. He is typically English in appearance sturdy Blue eyed and Light haired with a Beautiful complexion. Ills Good looks Are shared by his two Brothers and their sister. Prince Albert is just Over 5 years of age. Princess Victoria is not quite 4, while the baby of the family Prince Henry will celebrate the first anniversary of his birth in March. The English papers abound in stories about the Royal grandchildren and Pic photo by Lafayette London. Prince Edward of York Tures of them. According to the mo9t recent account Prince Edward is a great Pickle a what we would Call a a mischievous Little clip a a Prince Albert is a a flue healthy Little fellow a and Princess Victoria is a a a charmingly Dainty Little child with a delicate complexion and Dainty i Ruee Henry is of course too Young to have attracted the admiring attention of British biographers. He was born at about the time of Queen victorians visit to Ireland and the Emerald Isle expected that he would be named Patrick. That name does not however appear in the list of those borne by the child. Carlyle and Hla cat. In a letter of mrs. Carlyle a written to her maid Jessie there is an amusing reference to Carlyle Aud his cat. Says mrs. Carlyle a that cat i wish she were dead but i can t shorten her Days because you see my poor dear wee dog liked her. Well there she is and As Long As she attends or. C. At his meals she does no to care a sheaf of tobacco for him at any other time so Long will or. C. Continue to give her bits of meat and triblets of in ilk to the ruination of carpets Aud Hearth rugs. I have Over and Over again pointed out to him the stains she had made but h wont believe them her doings. And the dining room carpet was so old and ugly that it was t Worth rows with one s husband about. Now however that Nice new cloth must be protected Ogu Wiist the cat abuse. So what i wish is that you would shut up the creature when or. C. Has breakfast dinner or Tea and if he remarks on her absence say it was my express desire. He has no idea what a selfish immoral improper beast she is nor what mischief she does to the Globe. It one of the heroic nurses of civil War times. Women who Are in demand the womanly woman women As lira ugh Llala Suhk Atilua of the Art of pleasing�?1the stylish girl. Mrs. Margaret Hamilton of Wakefield mass., is one of the heroic women who gave her services As a nurse in the War of the rebellion. She is president of the National association of a the nurses of the civil War and Secre juy of the army nurse association of Massachusetts Aud is an Active Bright wide awake woman and patriotic to tie Core. She was born in Rochester in 1840 Aud. Being an Only child was much indulged by her parents and knew Little of life scares until the death of her Mother in 1837. This left a sense of desolation Aud loneliness in her heart Aud she Beturne restless. Being of a religious nature her aspiration was to become a sister of Charity having been trained in their schools. This did not meet the approval of her father As Lucid not wish to be painted from his daughter but finally her pleadings gained his consent. In 1800 she entered the orphan Asylum As an aspirant for the orders of the Sisters. This favor of admitting her was because her father had been a generous Friend to the Church and Asylum. After mrs. Margaret Hamilton a probationary term of three months she was sent to the Mother House in eni Mitsburgh my. Where she remained six months learning their methods. This was in the autumn of 1801, when the alarm of War struck terror into Many a peaceful Home. In the Spring of 1802 ail order came to the Mother House to Send three of the Sisters to Slat ter Lee United states military Hospital in West Philadelphia. When mrs. Hamilton heard the message it filled her heart with a True happiness that she had to conceal As a part of her discipline. But she was determined on one thing and that was to leave the order if she was not chosen and to offer her services in the great struggle. Her fears were happily groundless and she was sent Early in May 1802. Mrs. Hamiltons feet began to Blister from constant standing but her services were unremitting. During 1802. 1863 and 18t>4 the Hospital was constantly filled this being especially so after the Battle of Gettysburg. The wards were overcrowded and tents were erected to accommodate 2,000, most of whom wore coloured troops who when recovering made the place Lively with tent meeting hymns and prayers. Mrs. Hamilton can never forget what the soldiers of the rebellion sacrificed that this nation might free the Bondsman. She married a Soldier of the nineteenth Maine volunteers and by this marriage eight children were born seven of whom survive. The army nurses Are the Queens who have heroically wielded their womanly scepter. Long life to our Noble army nurses and to the interesting subject of this sketch a Boston traveler. Women who Are in demand. Women who Are a jacks of All trades Are now the ones who Are earning most Money and who meet with least difficulty in finding Good situations. Indeed there Are not near enough of them to Supply the increasing demand for their services. With the amassed wealth of this country and the numerous outside duties which necessarily devolve upon the woman head of a Large establishment there has seemed to come among other things an opening for a second self a working mistress so to speak in the Home. To fill such a position High class women 6t considerable education and refinement Are desired for they must when the Madam is unable to do so take up the reins of the household at any Point. They must interview special visitors go on confidential missions also errands of mercy and put Forth an exemplary moral tone before the Young people. In fact this position requires a woman endowed with tact one of heavens greatest bleeping and a general amount of Savoir Faire. She should never he at a loss for a word or allow any emergency to find her unprepared. Not Only is she the Power behind the throne but even must she at times look after that structures steadiness. Again she must have no Talent for what Ruskin regards As so great a crime a idleness. There Are Flowers to be arranged in the drawing room a thing never wisely Intro steal to unskilled fingers. There Are cards to be Wiit Teu to place in front of each guests place at dinner something which servants know nothing whatever about and besides this dexterous individual must even perhaps spend some hours in studying a monologue or Poe i to declaim after the repast is Over. One must Fie Able to amuse As Well As serve. In no Way does such a position As this conflict with that of a housekeeper s. Often the same establishment will shelter them both. The one backs up and attends to practical arrangements the other is Alert for the social order of things. But a word to the Wise is enough. The woman who feels herself capable of filling such a position can secure no doubt a luxurious Home and have placed in her hand anywhere from $50 to $100 a month. The combination of a trained nurse and a Nursery governess has recently suggested itself to Clever minds so that now it is not unusual to find in the Home one individual possessed of these diverse attainments. There Are. A9 is Well known a number of women who go through a certain amount of Hospital training and yet find after they have completed their course that they prefer not to pursue it As a steady profession. But if they happily have some other latent Talent such As that of being a governess or a companion to Young girls this very knowledge of nursing will greatly Aid them to place themselves with a much larger salary than they could otherwise courier. The Winn n i y woman. Its a mistake for women to Dwarf their finer feelings either because they re afraid of being sentimental or because they consider that worldly Wisdom Caus roughness of manner and speech. Some women Are impolite to their inferiors because they re afraid that the free and equal attitude will be the outcome of decency. People who Are extraordinarily careful about their dignity usually do it because they Haven to any to spare. The True gentlewoman is not afraid to be civil to her servants. The really worldly Wise woman knows How surely sympathy is needed and How much Good it does. She is not afraid of being thought sentimental because she writes lore letters to her woman friends or because she recollects the names and birthdays and Ages Aud addresses of most people she Ever knew Well. A really Strong minded woman is not afraid of being called Only a woman. She prizes every attribute of her womanly Ness. She is not assumed to he seen Lun Diing her or feeding free do. 8he does not open her heart to strangers and read its history to them but Ltd a stranger happens on a bit of her life she owns it without apologies. It seems we re very in Ucb afraid of being not a a a used Ltd of having heart. We laugh at loves Young dream even while we believe in our souls that what tin poet said was altogether True. We hide away our fondness for our nearest and Dearest Aud sometimes they never find it till their life is All behind them and the Pang of losing them has startled us from our disguises. Men perhaps More than women Harden their hearts Aud Call the process the acquiring of self control. Women should be always Sweet voiced and tender hearted. Strength does nut mean hardness of heart or roughness of voice. We lose from our lives Hulf their magic and half their Power when we scoff at the sympathies the Little self denials the eager wish to la of service or to give pleasure and mock it with a Good word put to a had press. Women As dramatist. It has been asked More than once whether women can write plays. Awhile Buck this question provided an elaborate discussion the upshot of which was that whereas they might be Able to do so the fact remained that they had not so far distinguished themselves in the Field of dramatic literature. It can no longer be said however that women Are not to be seriously reckoned As rival competitors with Meu in this particular kind of work. How far they Are successful at present or whether they Are Likely to do still greater things for the stage it is not proposed to discuss just now. But what does seem to need saying at this juncture when there Are signs that the woman dramatist a making herself prominent and is doing notable work is that a splendid Opportunity Here presents itself for women to exercise the Best possible influence on the drama of the Day. We hear it frequently asked does the drama make for Good and thinking on the pessimistic problem plays that Are produced and on the theme which generally furnishes Forth the play of the Day one hesitates to reply affirmatively. One would be specially sorry to think that As they have the Chance of elevating or at All events of preserving the Best of the drama women did not Avail themselves of their chances. Women Are without doubt As capable As men of putting Good stories int of dramatic shape and supplying our stage with Well written and Well constructed plays but it is to be hoped that they will not be tempted to forget that it is woman a Metier to command respect Aud her privilege to influence for Ledger. Shipping of the great lakes. Few people we imagine realize the vast extent of the Commerce of the Inland seas known As the great lakes. According to figures secured by the Treasury Bureau of statistics coupled with the report of the officer in charge of the Sault Ste. Marie canal there were received by vessels at the 37 principal ports on the great lakes Between april 1, 1900, and the close of the year a total of 1,200,234 tons of flour 52,834,250 bushels of wheat 70,805,801 bushels of Corn 33,290,707 bushels of Oats 11,520,501 bushels of Barley and 1,840,892 of Rye. These figures relate purely to the movements Between United states ports and do not therefore include the shipments to or from port on the Canadian Side of the canals or through the Welland canal. The great bulk of the Grain traffic originated at Chicago Aud Duluth Aud had Buffalo As its Point of destination. The receipts of Iron Ore by water at the ports embraced in the bureaus compilation reached a total of 16,208,027 tons and this May be accepted As about 85 per cent of the entire movement of Iron Ore both by rail and water.

In View of the efforts being made by the owners of the lumber carrying vessels on the great lakes to effect a combination with the purpose of maintaining rates it is perhaps interesting As illustrating the scope of this Branch of Inland Commerce to note that lumber shipments were made during the sea Sou from 32 of the 37 ports the Commerce of which the Bureau of statistics kept a record receipts being recorded at an equal number of ports.

H. C. Sandel i county commissioners of g. W. Miles \ Montour county. Wesley Perry i county commissioners office. Danville March �5th, 1901. A novel lawsuit has been entered in Pennsylvania against the Erie Railroad company to recover damages for Oil Wells burned. The plaintiffs claim that the fire was started by a spark from a locomotive of the defendant company and ask judgment in the sum of $180,000. Doubtless Sparks from locomotives have started Many fires particularly in the Oil producing sections of the country but we do not recall any instance where the Railroad company has been held responsible for the damages. Several state Legislatures have enacted Laws to compel Railroad companies to equip their locomotives with spark arresters with the View of saving Timber Aud other valuable property and some Railroad have taken additional precautions to prevent fires from stray Sparks that escape the arresters. An adjudication upon the question of the extent of the responsibility of Railroad companies and the line of evidence employed to make a Railroad culpable for its offending in the emission of Sparks will be of interest a Kansas agricultural College bulletin gives the average annual milk and butter product of Kansas cow at $9.65. To test the matter whether this Small return was the fault of the cows or of the manner of caring for and feeding them the Experiment station bought a lot of common scrub cows and by feeding them properly made them average a return of $37.75 each one of these scrubs producing a product Worth $60.88. While Dairy form and Dairy blood Are indispensable to Large butter production. It is still proved by the above that the feeding of properly balanced rations to even scrub cows will increase their milk product fourfold. There is a thought right Here for every Man who keeps cows anywhere. Administrator s notice.
