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.

Avant Courier. A Windfall for the Heirs. About the year 1760, Jan Hein- rich, a poor young Hollander, bought passage for America. The ship cast anchor off Philadelphia. He ran acress an old merehant and trader, named Henwiche, who put him to wok. Jan proved a smart young fellow,and besides finding favor in his matér’s eyes made a tremendous | and handsome wife. One day the old: aptain, full of years, wealth and bate . . * col pes died and his body was sent HS Dack to Holland. ‘The widow was of Henwiche’s riches. Jan : =igethralte Was put in charge of affairs, and he thrived so well and looked so nice within a year of the captain’s death. One day he and the late widow started on a voyage to the land of their birth. Before their return she died. Jan lasted only six months after her when he died without leav- ing an heir. He owned no less than fourteen full rige@ed ships and many | small trading vessels. The estate | was wound up by the courts and the money put into ‘a bank at Amster- | dam, where it has remained ever | since, awaiting claimants and proofs that those who did put in claims were entitled to it. In the century that has passed, the original fortune of Jan has more than doubled and the amount now to be distributed to $9,000,000, Jan left a sister and brother in Amster- survived him, and now their descendants, some thirty in | number, having made application amounts over who dam genealogical title to participation.

The addition of the Walk- er-Carter muffle roaster would make this plant a representative | of that | system or process. Itis believed by close observers at this place, that this process embodies the solution of the problem of treating the class of ores mentioned above protitably and that it will be instrumental in inaugurat- ing an era of solid prosperity in this and other camps in the ‘Territory. Mill men and mining men should look into this process, because, if the results justify the claims set up, it will be a very important factor lding to the future wealth and pros- mines sroductive that would become giving em- nu h and pros perity of this country. here are : and camps lying idle many and uny at prosperous communities, \ . sloyment to hundreds of miners and mill men, if their low grade base ores could be treated at a profit.

Glue SCIENCE AND PROGRESS. ITEMS OF GENERAL INTEREST FROM TRUSTWORTHY SOURCES. Optical L['lusions, Filustrated with Inter- esting Variations of Professor Thomp- son’s Stroboscopic Circles, That May Be Experimented with by Any One. A correspondent in La Nature suggests several interesting variations which may be given to the experiment with the strobosco- pic circles discovered by Professor Thomp- son about ten years ago, and familiar to most of our readers. Two of these variations are depicted in the cuts here given. FIG. 1—OPTICAL ILLUSION, These two designs are intended to be copied on cardboard four times larger than the original, and rapidly revolved on a pin or Under these conditions Fig. 1 will be curiously transformed. The four circles will disap- pear and change into a single circle, the cir- cumference of which is bounded by the cen- ters of the real circles; outside of this spec- tral circle numerous half circles appear. —- ric, 2—OPTICAL ILLUSION. When Fig. 2 is rotated on its axis the parallel lines disappear and become con- verted into concentric circles. How to Use Glue. For clue to ha pranerls affantiva, 4 = quires te penctrate the pores of the wood; and the more a body of glue penetrates the wood, the more substantial the joints will remain. Glues that take the longest to dry are to be preferred to those that dry quickly, the slow drying being always the strongest, other things being equal. For general use, says Scientific American, no method gives such good results as the fol- lowing: Break the glue up small, put it into an iron kettle, cover the glue with water, and allow it to soak twelve hours. After soaking, boil until done. Then pour it into an air tight box, leave the cover off until cold, then cover up tight. As glue is re- quired, cut out a portion and melt in the usual way. Expose no more of the made glue to the atmosphere for any length of time than is necessary, as the atmosphere is very destructive to made glue. Never heat mada glue ina pot that is subject to the direct heat of the fire or of a lamp. All such methods of heating glue cannot be con- terms too severe. Do not use thick glue for joints or veneering. In all cases work it weli into the wood,in a similar ' | ! | both surfaces of your work, except in cases of veneering. Never glue hot wood, as the hot wood will absorb all the water in the | glue too suddenly and leave only a very lit- tle residue, Salt at Salt Lake, Utah. The manufacture of salt around the shores of Salt Inke, Utah, is an important and growing industry. Nearly ail the land «dapted to the purpose has bee appropriated by settlers, A level meadow is usually selected a few | inches above and adjacent to the water of the The surface of the soil is scraped and made level and hard like the floor of a brick yard. A storm or high wind will drive the water | in from the lake and cover it, and a slight | dani prevents its return. It quickly evap- orates and leaves a residue of solid salt six to ten inches deep, that is shoveled into farm | wagons and marketed. | This salt, owing to the considerable per centage of soda it contains, is not considered desirable for meat and butter, and does not | command the price of a pure article, but is in general use in the territory. : | la'ze, | } | | Paper for Cleaning Lenscs. | Professor Gage, of Cornell university, reec- | ommends, as preferable to linen or chamois skin, the so called Japanese filter paper, the | bibulous paver often used by dentisis in fill- | ing teeth, It is soft and flexible, absorbs | liquids readily, is less likely to contain gritty | particles that are liable to scratch the lenses, | and it is so inexpensive that whena pieco has once been used it may be thrown away, | Every director of a microscopical laboratory | appreciates the difficulty of getting students | to exercise the proper care in cleaning objec- | tivesand eye pieces. Every large laboratory Is sure to contain some students whose genius {or scientific study is exhibited chieily in the careless handling of delicate apparatus. Doubtiess if in a microscopical laboratory each student were provided with a quantity | of this paper, fewer valualle lenses would be injured, The Mysterious Vinegar Well. A story from Vincennes, Ind., is going the | rounds to the effect that a mysterious vine- | gar well which was dug on the farmof 5. | W. Williams, just east of that city, has been accounted for, after much discussion by | chemists and others, ‘Some twenty years ago the farm was owned by F. M. Fay, who hatl an extensive orchard.

One hundred thousand double eagles ($2,000,000) should weigh 8,958 pounds 4 ounces. The limit of deviation from the correct weight allowed by law is one-one- hundredth of an ounce for every $5,000 in gold double eagles; therefore the limit for 100,00) double eagles is just 4 ounces, THE CURIOSITY SHOP. The Garden of Eden—Paradise—Deriva- tion of the Word. Tke “Garden of Eden” mentioned Gen. ii, 8, is also called from the Septuagint the “Garden of Paradise.” The word “Eden” signifies pleasure and delight. Several places were thus called; see Gen. iv, 16; II Kings xix, 12; Isaiah xxxvii, 12; Ezekiel xxvii, 27, and Amos i,5, and such places probably had this name from their fertility, pleasant situation, etc., etc. In this light the Sep- tuagint have viewed Gew. ii, 8, as they ren- der the passage thus: ‘God planted a para- dise in Eden.” Hence the word has been translated into the New Testament, and is used to signify a place of exquisite pleasure and delight. From this the ancient heathens borrowed: their ideas of the gardens of the Hesperides, where the trees bore golden fruit. And the gardens of Adonis, a word which is evidently derived from the Hebrew, Eden; and hence the origin of sacred groves, gar- dens and other inclosures dedicated to the purposes of devotion, some comparatively innocent, others impure. The word *““para- dise” is not Greek, but is of Asiatic origin. In Arabic and Persian it signifies ‘a garden, a vineyard,” and also the “place of the blessed.” In the ‘‘Kusbuf ul Lozhat,” a very celebrated Persian dictionary, the ‘‘Jenet al Ferdoos,” Garden of Paradise, is said to have been “created by God out of light, and that the prophets and wise men ascend thither,” Celluioid. Most celluloid is made in France, A roll of paper isslowly unwound, and at the same time is saturated, with a mixture of five parts of sulphuric and two parts of nitric acid, which falls upon the paper in a fine spray. This changes the cellulose of the paper into pyroxyline (gun cotton). The excess of the acid having been expe led by pressure, the paper is washed with plenty of water until all traces of acid have been removed. It is then reduced to a pulp, and passes on to the bleaching trough. It is this gun cotton which gives it its explosive nature. Most of the water having been got rid of by means of a strainer, it is mixed with from 29 to 49 per cent. of its weight of camphor; asecond mixt- ure and grinding follows, This pulp is spread out in thin slabs, which are squeezed in a hydraulic press until they areas dry as chips. Then they are rolled in heated rollers, and come out in elastic sheets. They are from that point worked up into almost every con- ceivable form. In Paris there is a room al- most completely furnished in celluloid. The <4 Uttuas, OtKO ~FuLtuuie, ve UUVOr KOODS and even the matting were made of this material To be sure, no matches were ever carried there. Indeed, the room was never used. It was only a curiosity, and the man who owned it owned the factory where it was made, Venus of Milo. The Venus of Milo, or Melos, is in the gal- lery of the Louvre, at Paris. This statue is thought to be the work of Alexaniros, the son of Menides of Antiocheia, or one of those sculptors who are called Asiatic Greeks. It is said that the base of this sta‘ue, with the name of the artist upon it, was destroyed for the purpose of deceiving the king of France into the belief that it is more ancient than it really is. It was discovered in 1820 by a peasant in the town of Milo, on the island of the same name. It was ina niche of a wali which had long been buried. The Marquis of Rivere, who was French ambassador at Constantinople, purchased it and presented it to King Louis XVIL1, who placed it in the Louvre. It is made from two blocks of marble, joined above the drapery which en- As it now stands it has the tip of the nose and the foot, which projects beyond the drapery, as they have been re- stored by modern artists. It represents a | goddess rather than a beautiful woman, Alabama Award. fhe Alabama Claims commission met at Geneva, Dec. 15, 1871, end rendered cision that Great Britain should pay to the United States an indemnity of $15,000,009 for the direct injuries done to the latter’s com- merce by three of the Confederate cruisers. This commission was composed of ive mem- bers chosen respectively by the president of the United States, the queen of England, the king of Italy, the president of the Swiss Con- federation and the emperor of Brazil. Tke president appointed Charles Francis Adams; the queen, Sir Alexander Cockburn; the em- peror of Brazil selected Baron ('Itazuba; tho king of Italy chose Count Sciopis, and tho president of the Swiss Confederation ap- pointed James Staempfli, J. C. Bancroft Davis was appointed agent of the United States and Lord Tenterden of Great Britain, Count Sciopis presided. Sneezing, Some unimportant customs can be traced back to a very ancient origin, or, at all events, can be shown to have existed long ago. ‘Bless you!” some one says, on hearing acompanion sneeze. “Bless you!” was just the exclamation made for the same reason | in other tongues by several nations kundreds of yearsago. More than one ancient Greek writer speaks of this custom, but cannot say certainly whence it came. The man who sneezed when offering sacrifice was thought fortunate and sure to obtain his object. We all know how sneezing may be caused, but it is curious to notice that some people sneeze on coming into the sunshine. An Ancient Expression. The origin of the expression “leave no stone unturned” is thus accounted for: Afier the battle cf Platea, Mardonius, the aido of Xerxes, buried a vast treasure on the ficld. Polycrates consulted the orac!s a3 Delphi as i samo, sud reccived the answer: ‘‘Turn cvery stone.” The First Locomotive. The frst steam locomotive in America, and probably in the world, was invented in 1797 by A. Kinsley, and ran upon tho streets cf Hariferd, Conn. The first practicable one was the isiephensons “Stourbridge Cuiversity Degrees. Collegiate degrees are Ccoevel with univer: sities. Masters and doctors existed A. D, $25.
