What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

An Irish paper at Poston gives statistics to show that in the course of one generatior that city will be the most distinctively Celtic city in the world. The last act of a disappointed lover whc morphined his way out of the world a Houston, l'ex., was to sewt a beautifnl bou quet to the young lady. At Yazoo City, Tenn., water has been sell- ing for twenty-five cents a barrel, owing te the long period of dry weather which has been experienced in that region. Three burglars worked all night on a saft in an office in Fond Du Lac, and when tbej flnaliy got it open they found six postal earth and five postage stamps to reward them. Capt.

Mr. Howells has discovered that the title of his now serial !tory, \An Open Question,\ has already been used for another story, and he has therefore changed it to \April Hopes.\ John M. Kasson, of Iowa, who has served In congress and as minister to Austria, has nearly finished a diplomatic history of the war of the rebellion, which will show the re- lations which the European powers occupied toward the Confederate states.

Mary Anderson is studying French in Paris. Mrs. Cleveland proposes to aid in the cru- sade against the cartwheel bat and the sky scraping bonnet. Ex -Consul Warren Green says the wife of the mikado is a graduate of Vassar, and • charming woman. M. Coquelina aged mother wes tbe only woman present at the great farewell banquet recently giv ep to that actor in Paris. The observiitton is current that Miss Ross Elizabeth Cleveland is more admired in Washington personally than as a writer. The empress of Austria is an excellent shot, and has recently bad rifle ranges made for her own use in the parks of her residences. The ambition of the ladles of Holland of high degree is to peewees a black lace dress. It Is made out of one piece, lasts a lifetime and is always in style. New York boasts of a pretty girl who can be seen on Broadway any fine day carrying in her arms a diminutive but exceedingly Lively nvaltese cat. Mrs. Carlisle, wife of the speaker, has a pet parrot which is said to cry \hurrah for Carlisle!\ call for cocktails, and repeat the variegated profanity be heard. , Mrs. Langtry's rosy cheeks and healthy looks excite much envy.

Last year there were only fifty-ilve girls in tho college. The students come from thirteen different states, Macon, Ga., has an old blind woman who always carries about with her a piece of tin, and imagines that she can see an object by shaking the tin in front of it. People who know her say that sbe can readily recognize her neighbors by shaking it iu their faces. Mark Twain says he does not like to go to Now York with his wife. He says: \She is very anxious to have every one think she dreeste like a New Yorker,\ and yet when- ever she buys anything in a store iii Ilia city the clerk is sure to ask, 'What hotel shall I send this to, ma'am!'\ Mrs. Cleveland gets almost as many letters as the president, but she does not answer them as she did when she first went to the White House. She says she ought to make a good housekeeper, as a largo proportion of her volunteer correpondonts tell her how the White House should be managed. Mine. Patti is said to be an industrious col- lector of autographs. No friend of distinc- tion is permitted to yam the threshold of the prune donna without writing something. The result is that the signatures of almost every notability, loth in and outside of the musical world, are to be found in one of her albums. Young men in the Hareem' medical school Liars a prejudice against female student -a, one of whom is, /Alas Annie Copeland, of Bridge- water. They called her to attend a caao of fracture of the leg, which on exananation proved to be a wooden one. She fixed it with haminer and nails and charged $23, which she collected with the aid of a con- stable. Li eerpool, England, has a female orchestra which is pronounced a great succees. At present it is limited to a string hand, the heavier brass instruments not being suited to ladies lips.

Both the czarina of Rusna and Princess Dolgorouki, the late czar's morganatic wife. decided to pass the winter at Nice. Tbe lat- ter, who is enonnou .ly rich, ordered that her establishment should be made to outshine that of the empress at any cost. The empress thereupon appealed to M. de Freyeinet, who caused a number of alleged Nihilist pieta to blow up the prinems to be discovered when she reached Nice. This frightened her away, and the empress will enjoy the winter at Nice undisturbed. ALL SORTS. After a snowstorm in Dakota, the wind forms large snow balls, great numbers of wbich cover the prairie. The number of those who are now invalids as the result of the war is said to be 26.5,854, the total number of soldiers having been about 1,250,000. In Paris work has begun for the great World's Fair, to be held in 1889, and work- men's sheds erected all amend the park on the side of the Champ de 'Mars. During the last few years the disease which the doctors call morphioinania has made rapid headway in France. At Bellevue a hospital has been opened for the care, and, if possible, the cure of the patients. The number of banks In different states varies greatly. Its Arkansas, with seventy- seven counties, there mu -e only fourteen banks, while in Kansas, with eighty-seven counties, there is a bank to each county. The popula- tion of Kansas is 450,000 larger than that of Arkansas, still the contrast is remarkable. The tramp problem seems to have been effectually solved in New York state. An almshouse in Tarrytown is nova provided with watertight rooms, which will hold water six feet deep. NVIsenever a tramp is caught he is put in ono of the rooms, the water is turned on, awl he is left to Lail out or drown. It is intended to construct in London a high tower in commemoration of the jubilee year of her majesty's reign. This tower is to be 4-10 feet high at the extreme top, and 420 feet at the top platform, from which may be seen eight or nine counties, and will overlook every other structure yet built in London. New York is the largest bay market in the country. Twenty-five years ago the counties along the Hudson river were able to furnish the metropolis with all the hay it needed. New it comes from every part of the state, and Ohio and Indiana are called upon to sup- ply the demand_ Outside of a few thousand bales which go to Brooklyn to make up the deficiency of the Long Island crop, the 2,500,- 000 bales which reach New York every year are consumed on Manhattan island. Dentists in England are very rare, and Americans who go over there to pull teeth have a good thing. A Massachusetts man who is practicing in one of England's provin- cial towns hates Englishmen, and when he gets one in his chair denounces English cus- toms in unmeasured terms. His patients are obliged to put up with it, as be is the only man in the county \who knows a tooth from a cribbage peg.\ He is coming back to the states when be g. money enough to retire on, FACTS WORTH KNOWING. A cement very much used a& tire mesa% day in China and Japan is made from rice. It is only necessary to mix rice flour inti- mately with water and gently simmer the mixture over a clear fire, when it readily forms a delicate and durable cement - A French tbermometer been devised of such sensitiveness that it will eves denote, by a deflection of the index needle of nearly two inches, the entrance of a persoainto the room where L is placed, and by putting the hand near the bulb the needle is deflected the whole extent of the graduated arc. A mechanic in Louisville thinks that he has Invented an apparatus which will discourage tbo giv ing of false alarms of fire. His appliance is a pair of magnetic nippers, iviarti grasp by the wrist the man who turns in the alarm and holds him at. the box until the arrival of the fire deaartment. The man can only be released on the arrival of the fireman. A new compound of caoutchoue, for which the name of \woodite\ is euegisited, ha -s been produced by Mrs. A. M. Weod, an English Lady. The substance wee -sees the ekesticity of india rubber, undergo. s no change - by ex- posure, and is claimed to be abisolutely man - flammable. It is proposed to 'alit for cove eriiig the unannored parts of war shila and torpedo boats. For extinguishing fire in closed spaces, where water would do much damage, a Ger- man physicist recommends& compound whose burning quickly absorbs the oxygen awl ven- ders combustion impossible. His preparation contains fifty-nine parts of powdered salt- petre, thirty-six parts of powdered sulphur, four parts of powdered charcoal and one part of colcothar (brown red oxide of iron). lie keeps the mixture in five -pound pasteboard boxes, with a fuse protruding to insure ligbt- leg it. The work of the heart in a healthy man is equivalent .to the feat of raising 5 1-5 tons one foot per hour, or 1.25 tons in twenty-four hours. The 1190 of eight ounces of alcohol causes the heart's work to show an excess of twenty-four foot tons. This would give the mileage of the blood through the body as 207 yards per minute, seven miles per hour, 163 miles per day, 61,320 miles per year, or 5,- 150,8titi miles in a life time of eighty-four years. In the same long life the greet journey of the blood would be the result of the grand total of 2,860,776,0U0 heart SOME LONG DRAWN BOWS.

A -dispatch says that while Mrs. Jefferson Gross, of Little Oley, \ was placing some milk in the spring house, a snake over four feet long came crawling up to her, and, sticking its head into one of the cans, commenced helping itself to the milk.\ It is hardly neces- sary to explain that Little Oley Is iii forks equate', Pa. The additional report that the snake, after taking a .sup of the milk, looked up into the woman's face, and, winking its off eye, asked her if elle hadn't asamething little stronger,\ lacks confirmation, though it might (laity have occurred --in Barks county. —Norristown Herald. \I was standing in an open space, when a big, six pronged buck walked loieurely toward me, as cool B., a cucumber, and looked me all over. I tell you, deer have sense. That buck knew that he was under protection of the law so far as a regular sportsman was con- cerned, and be knew by Instinct that I was a sportsman.

The Woods family live on Hone street, Itondoute In the house is a large malts* eat. About three weeks ago Mrs. Woods, who was \down stairs,\ attending to her household duties, heard some one \up stairs\ playing the air to the song \Wait 'till the Clouds Roll By\ on the piano. She knew tbat her daugh- ter was not in the house, and felt slightly frightened. Creeping softly \up stairs,\ she peeked into the room. Seated on the piano stool she saw the Maltese eat drumming out the notes of the song on the piano keys- Tho tune was correct, and the piece was executed with all the grace of an accomplished artist. The eat then jumped from the stool oil top of the piano keys, and running to arid fro over them with the saute quickness as a person's fingers would in play- ing on a similar instrument, brought out a lively waltz in true time and measure. Since that day the cat has learned several airs of popular songs of the day. It plays solely by ear.—Kings-ton (N. Y.( Freeman. A CHURCH NOTES. There are now in larance l seventy-three re- ligious newspapers; advocating evangelical truth. This does not include monthly wage - Auer It is estimated that in Italy 10,000 members of Protestant churches have been converted from Romanism. Protestante in Italy have WO churches, The old church of St. Bartholomew, West Soutbflekl, England, in which Ho-gartb was baptized and of which Milton was a parish- ioner, has been reopened after a partial resto- ration. In 1813 Proteatmaism in France did not count 150 pastors, Time church now has 909 pastors, thirty-seven homes for orphans, for- ty-two retreats for the aged, and two conva- lescent reformatories for prisoners. The Baptists of Brunswick, Ga., rented a parsonage, fitted it up, filled the pantry with provisions and then invited their pastor and his wife to sup with them. Then they turned the parsonage and contents over to him. During the present century 3,000,000 of heathens had been won to Christ, while dur- ing that time the population of the heathen world had increased 200,000,4)00 It has been estimated that if the church at home deka her duty in Japan during the next fifteen years, after that. time no more money or reassiou- aries need be sent. At a country parish in Germany a few Sundays ago the congregation was startled by the announcement that their prayers were asked by andon behalf of a man who had suddenly become rich, The prayer was vary earnest, the novelty of the case bar lug ap- parently thrown urgency into the preacher's voice and manuer, sea LABOR NOTES.

Mgr. Straneiro, the papal abelgate, has just ;ailed for Rome. He has been investi- gating the Knights of Labor and says he thinks the pope will not oppose them. Ile will publish a book on America. A visitor in Philadelphia is Mr. J. J. Tip - church, formerly of North Carolina but now of Bethlehem, Pa., who in 1568 founded the Ancient Order of United Workmen, which now numbers more than 170,000 work- men. It is observed by The Chicago Mail that the three stock yard capitalists in that city, Allerton, Morris and Cudahy, against which the wrath of tbe striker; has been most di- rected, began their business lives as obscure and Penniless laborers. The system of public lectures by Knights of Labor will be carried on energetically dur- - ing the coming winter.

It is estimated that 34,000 to 3.5,0(X) cubic feet of rain falls on the surface of the globe each year. The famous old steauner Plymouth Bock was burned off Apple island the other morn- ing for the iron, brava and copper in her bulb Time earth is now passing through a portion of its orbit which intersects the orbits of several systems of meteors. About Nov. 26 and during the Mat week in December meteors are liable to fall. Steffen° Merlatti, the young Italian artist who has undertaken to outdo Succi, says that his sale object is to prove that Suet -i's liquid compsaitani is only a mystification, and that Sumas stomach is like his own --capable of enduring a long fast. The Preach navy oalcialsamve been experi- menting at Duni:irk with an invention which, if it is practical, will render existing navies useless. This invention is nothing less than a man-of-war wade of celluloid, which will float under all circumstances, and is prac- tically proof against artillery, since the heav- iest shot mevely imbed themselves in it with a dull thud, and do lest penetrate. The consumption of paper and the volume of its manufacture are sometimes taken as standards of civilization. The United States has 885 paper mills and 1,100 paper machines; Germany has 809 mills and 891 machines; France, 433 mills and 626 machines; England, 361 mills, 541 machines; Scotland, 09 mills, 98 machines; Ireland, 13 mills, 13 machines; Russia, 133 mills, 137 machines; Austria, 220 mills, 270 machines. The average annual production of paper in all countries is esti- mated at 2,800,000 tons. The following \sum\ was set the pupils of the Lria ° nitzer Malchenschule, who gave it up, not being quick enough to see the trap laid for them. From 880,788,889 take the number 6-19 as many tiraes as possible. The pupils took it for granted that it was simply a subtraction sum. It was explained to them afterward that if they bad gone on subtract- ing until a proper answer was got it would have Laken them one year and four mouths to do it in, allowing that one can subtract the number three times in every minute, and working twelve hours a day. The proper way of doing the smn was, of course, simply dividing 8.80,78.1,889 by 629, which equals 1,400,30U 189-629. MUSICAL AND THEATRICAL, Margaret Mather has added \Masks and Faces\ to her repertory. Rubinsten has changed his mind about coming to this country this season. He is afraid of the sea.
