A Reasonable Talh In Writers of Kojectsd
Articles for the Press.
1 There U constant complaint from
new and amhitloiiswrlter that they can
nut gut a proper hoarlnir In the muga-
tines and newspaper. They send their
wures to unti market afmr another only
to have thuin rupuatcdly declined; and
out of these successive disappointments
they evolve the belief ttiut there lit a
Conspiracy against them on the part of
the editor who Hum complacently dis
pose of their pretty dream. It wi'im
impossible to tliem that there can bo
two opinion about tho value of the pro
duction to which they havo devoted
to much tlmo and thought.
Now and then, to be aura, they re
ceive nice littlo notes from tbeiui
Tailed autocrat, commending tbeir
work and regretting- that it la not avail
able, and that simply atrike them aw
.. Insult added to injury. If their manu
scripts aro really wortb praising, they
argue, why aro they not worth buying
and publishing? The Inconsistency of
the thing is palpablo, from their point
of view; and they can not understand
wby editor should take the troublo to
disclaim sincerity in such a deliberate
and conclusive way. They seo material
used by theso same editors which they
re sure does not surpass theirs In lit
erary merit l'erhaps they detect some
of tholr own idea in the accepted con
tribution; and it la difficult for them to
void the conviction that they have
somehow furnlshod fuel to boll the pots
Of lurking ana favored competitor.
In a certain sense, these industrious
- poets; essayist and novelists are not to
blame for harboring the fooling that
tome sinister Influence Is at the bottom
of their numerous disappointments.
Tbey are often right when they think
that their efforts are at least equal to
the average of those that find purchas
ers. Many of them do really good work,
and it is no wonder that they are sur
prised and chagrined when It oomos
Steadily back to them. But they do not
understand the conditions which oper
ate to tholr disadvantage. They are on
the outsldo, and the controllng facts are
on the Inside. It is not impossible for
thorn to realize the olroumstanoes
nndor which their manuscripts
re necessarily considered. They
do not know how many other people are
oapablo of doing work as admirable as
their own in every respect, and how
little out of tho abundance of such mat
ter that is offered the editors can make
place for. It is possible that the best
choico is not always made; but when
mistake of that kind are mado thoy are
not Intentional. So when editors write
complimentary notes they are actuated
by honest motive, and mean just what
they say. a hey can not furnish an ex-
plnnation in detail; but thoy do tho
next best thing, and may safoly be
taken at their word when they assure
contributors that given productions,
though meritorious, are not available.
Tho whole matter is one of demand
and supply. There is no sentiment in
it and no discrimination except on strict
business lines. The editors are not less
anxious to buy good things than con
tributors are to soil them; but they can
utilize only a stipulated amount, and
that is very small in comparison to the
quantity from which the selections are
mado. During recent years there has
been a wonderful increase of the writing
labit in this country. The time was,
and not very long ago, when the people
who could perform literary service of
reasonable merit were " exceptional,
whereas they are now plentiful in every
section. This causes over-production,
and the multiplication of manu
scripts that truly deserve praise Is
greatly In excess of the wants of the
editors. A thing of superior quality is
certain to be taken at fair prico, no
matter where it comes from. Hut liter
ary miracles aro scarce, and the editors
must accordingly purchaso what they
need out of what they find In the mar
ketnot all that meets tholr approval
but only so much of it as is essential to
, their purposes. They give preference
to writers of established reputation,
naturally enough, for roasons of
practical sort, which provall in every
business; and beyond that they do tholr
choosing with trained intelligence and
degree of impartiality that lcavos no
lust cause of complaint St. Louis
A STUPENDOUS WORK.
The New I'mtu-i Aqueduct at New York
and Other (.rent Tunnel.
Compared with other tunnuls, tho new
' aqueduct is easily at tho head of all
works of a like character in the world.
j ne cities oi inicago and uieveiand aro
each supplied with water through tun
nels extending out into a lake. The
first Chicago tunnel is 5 feet in dlumotor
and 10,5)17 feet long. The second tun
nol is 7 feet in diumeter and 81,490 feet
long. 'J lie Cleveland tunnel Is only S
feet in diumeter and 6,1101 feet long. All
of these tunnels were laid in compara
tively soft materials. The llaltimore
water supply Inoludos rook tunnel
twelve feet in diameter and sovon miles
long, and is lined with brick-work for
about two miles. The old lioninn anuo-
ducts wero several of them longor than
the troton Aqueduct but they wero all
very small, and were merely masonry
conduits a few foot in diameter. The
Liverpool water supply is convoyed by
an aqueduct about twice as long
as the troton Aqucduut but it is mainly
a surface aqueduct, there being only a
little tunnel-work. A portion of tho
aqueduct is mainly pipe line. The
supply is from a reservoir formed, like
that at Croton or at (Sodom, by building
dam across a narrow gorge in a valley
among the mountains in Wales. Tho
dam is larger than that at Sodom, being
1H0 feet high, while that at Sodom Is
only 78 feet Compared with the pro
posed dam It will be small, as the new
dam is to ho over two hundred feet high,
and will be the highest dam in the
world. The aqueduct tunnel, when
compared with railroad tunnels, is a
little smaller in diameter than the
three most famous tunnels, but is very
much longer. The lloosac Tunnel is
only 24,000 feet long, the Mont Cenls is
a miles long, and the St (iothard UJf
miles long, while the new Croton Aque-
duot as we have seen, is nearly SO miles
long. Charles liarnard, In Century.

DEATH IN CHLOROFORM.
The Most llangeroue Anaesthetic
employed bv Medical Man.
A contributor to tho London Lartcet
states that in the medical journals for
the last ton year there are reported l'-iO
(If not more) cases of death under
chloroform. Many of these are vury im
perfectly described, but in at least forty-
nine caw tho patients were in good
general health at the time ofadmlnls-
tration, and required an natthotlo
merely for the performance of soino
minor operation; e. g., extraction of
teeth (eleven case of death), reduction
of dislocation (nlno case), eye opera
tions, fistula) and so on. In some fifty
nine case death occurred before the
commencement of the operation, and so
was clearly due to the chloroform alone.
In alioiit twenty of the case it is noted
Unit chloroform had been successfully
given on previous occasion, in one as
many as eight different times before tho
fatal administration. It 1 evident from
the foregoing that chloroform is uncer
tain In Its action; that not only do peo
ole din while under chloroform, but
,i I so from it; frequently, too, even
when it is used by skillful bands.
Of course, it Is possible to retort that
"It was not properly given," which may
bo correct This will not alter the fact
Uiat these accidents provo chloroform

The nauseous flavor and the sense of
suffocation from ether can bo entirely
lone away with by the use of nitrous
jxldo, and its inhalation made more
tgreeable than even that of chloroform
while tho patient quickly becomes un
xinscious wltboutthe struggling so com
mon with chloroform. The writer goes
in to say: "1 have not yet found sin-

suffocation, or object to tako it again on
the ground of its unpleasantness.

It is always difficult to mako people
appreciate tho fact which Is certainly
a fact that things said in the black-and-white
forcefulness and permanence
uf a letter aro far moro offootlvo than
ihey would have been If they had been
spoken. Tho writer mount them just as
ho would havo meant them had ho said
them, and he does not in tho least re
flect that, by tho lossof accent, look and
goslure, tho thing ho wrlteH may lie

have said. There havo been countless
quarrels engendered by things written
In ali innocence, and which would have
had no such elfect hud they been deliv

their petulance In word, and easily cor
rect tho impression by following it with
a smile of apology, a glanco thut soft

these things are, of course, wanting in
the case of a letter. The words tell for
their worst, and In the absenco of tho
writer there is nothing to moderate the

FIIOM AN OBSOLETE OOSPKI.
(Extract from a strange manuscript
found in an obscure country church, said
to have been written by a man named
Mark, but believed by our richest schol
ars, on account of the general air of im
probability and the absurdly impractica
ble and preposterous teachings enunci
ated therein, to be the ounning invon
tion of a satirist)
"And Jesus sat over against the treas
ury, and behold now the people cast
money Info the treasury; and many that
were rich cast in much. And there came
a certain poor widow, and sho threw in
two mites, which make a farthing. And
he called unto Him His disciples, and
salth unto them: 'Verily 1 say unto you,
that this poor widow bath oast more in
than all they which have cast into the
treasury. For all thoy did cast in of
their abundance; but she of ber want
did cast In all that she had, oven all bar

In dealing with man we may roughly
divide hlra into two main types the
nervous and the muscular. Tho nervous
type would lie represented by the man
with an aetlvo, piercing eye; a face
www features exhibit all t-hechamn-teristics
of energy, intensity of thought
and feeling; a narrow chest and badly
developed muscles. In the muscular typo
we should find the man with features ex
hibiting a constant exprosslonof repose,
with powerful und woll-developed limbs
and slow of speech and movement
Good examples of the one type might
be found among our scholars and
Btudents, of the other type among our
agricultural laborers. These are ex
treme cases; in some of us the musc-lo
element predominates, in others the
nervous. Hut the Important part is thut
these types are not equally sensitive to
pain. Any medical man, relying on bis
own experience, would say that as a gen
eral rule tho nervous type was far more
sensitive than the muscular.
Niimorous examples have occurred in
the writer's own oxporlenco all pointing
in th same direction; indeed, he has
known men of tho muscular type under
go the most painful operations who have
ut the time exhibited no indications of
suffering, and have on being questioned
by him acknowledged that they did not
feel much. Hut the evidence is even
stronger in the case of uncivilized races,

natives was so great that when one of

Other facta connected with diseases of
tho brain may be cited in support of this
suggestion that the more active und

inflammation of tho brain, when the
amount of blood circulating through it
is lurger than usual, it becomes ex
tremely sensitive so much so that a

soup-kettle is a great convenience; it
should have a close cover to keep in tire

soft water should always be used, and

and sometimes cold. I next felt pains in
my back and around the lower portion of
ray bodv, and noticed a peculiar odor and
mliir in the water I parsed, which wss
scanty atone time and free at others. Some
times It puiiied me to void it, aud strain it
was aim. mt iniposstMe to do so at all. Fi
nally I betnn to pass clear blood accom

A sea-serpent, 103 feet long, covered with silvery, shining scales, and having
embryo wlnps on its shoulders, was seen to coil Itself up in slippery folds on the
coast of Florida lost month. Three reliable persons saw this creature distinctly.

It slipped oil into the water and disappeared in the east, followed by a path of
foam which could be teen for an hour afterwards.
