Samples of Our Wares 'Will be Put on
Exhibition in South America,
Boston, Feb. 18. Reciprocity with
Brazil is soon to lie put to a practical
test. The plan is to send three Ameri
can steamships to Brazil, loaded with
samples of almost everv known product
of this country. It is distinctively a
Boston idea, and no less than a score of
capitalists in that city are interested in
the scheme to increase the American
trade in the southern republic. New
-York-B,nd thowe-in otTief cities, 'wno
wish to take part in. the enterprise, will
be permitted to do so, but the promoters
expect to have the ground-floor profits,
tcL pUHh their own special lines,
lhe scheme has assumed vast propor
tions, and all plans are expected to be
perfected so that the expedition can
start during the latter part of April or
the first week in May for Rio Janeiro.
Arrangements are being made to rent
some large buildings in Rio Janeiro for
exhibition purposes, and. samples will le
shown there first. The plan is after
visiting Rio Janeiro, to take the samples
to the other coast cities of Brazil, and it
may be that Buenos Avres and other
cities in South America" will also have
an opportunity to view the . exhibit.
Large sales and vastly increased com
merce between this countrv and Brazil
are expected to result from this move
ment, especially in products which are
admitted free by both countries accord
ing to the reciprocity treaty.

A Compound Rail Claim To Be Better
Than That Now In Use.
Chicago, Feb. 10. The current num
ber of the Railway Age gives considera
ble space to a description of the Burton
compound rail, a California invention, of
which many aavantagts over the steel
rail now in use are claimed. It is an
nounced that J. K. Morris, of San Fran
cisco, secretary of the Bargion Company,
who has been in this citv a couple of
weeks, has closed a contract with the
Chicago & Northwestern Railway Co., for
a large lot of the rails. They will- l)e
laid on the Northwestern lines and sub
jected to a severe test.- They will be
shipped from San Francisco aa soon a
possible. To railroad men the idea of
steel rails from California is an unioue
one. . As one of them said today : "It is
a good exemplification of the old savin"
about carrying coals to Newcastle." "Mr!
Morris is negotiating with other compan
ies. The result of the test is awaited
with much interest. If satisfactory,
Eastern rolling mills will probably find
a vigorous competitor on the Pacific coast.

Are We All yiaAt
Doctors do not like to talk to news
paper men, for good reasons. Doctors
are custodians of the best stories in
existence, and when a newsiiRper man
can worm one of these storied from such
a source it is too good to keep. Bat of
courxs the ph y.sician must be kept in tho
dark. Even tbn the physician does not
like to talk, because he is afraid his
name might come out. One of these
epeciiilists was talking in his reception
room the other day and he mde this
"There is nothing new in the proposi
tion that wo are all mad. That's a story
as old as the hills and is true. We call
the insanity that is at large latent in
sanity. If ifc doesn't come in contact
with a shock or some disease it may re
main latent until death stops the ma
chinery. I know men in business who
are liable to go to pieces mentally if
the unexpected happens. I once knew a
man who was cashier in a bank, and I
had it from those who knew of his work
that no more competent and accurate
man ever held a place.
"But I had been his physician and his
fathers before him, and I knew that the
man was mad. His insanity was only
asleep. So well did I know him that I
warned him to keep himself free from
such excitement as would result from a
certain disease. As I had feared, that
disease finally made its appearance in
the country, and the man blew out his
brains as soon as he heard of it, al
though the case was 2,000 miles away."

When we reflect with satisfaction how
far we have emancipated ourselves from
the restraints of fashion in the matter of
beards, does it not seem marvelous that
we still endure the oppressive, though
unwritten law which constitutes the
chimney pot hat to be the only decorous
headdress for well to do male humanity?
Woe! woe! teethetic woe to the sons of
men who, having cast aside one after
another the Phrygian cap, the furred
birrus, the slashed bonnet, the knightly
beaver, the three-cocked hat and the
feathered glengarry, haye resolved that
whosoever will enter good society mnH
bind his brows with the gloomy cylinder!
None has a word to say in its favor;
every one hates it and condemns it. In
traveling the hideous object has to be
provided with a special case, yet for
more than three generations it has been
held indispensable. There is a cynical
levity in the ribbon which Btill encircles
its rigid circumference, recalling the
happy days when a hat band was a
reality, rosed to adjust the flexible cover
ing to the head. Odious as it is admit
ted to be, perhaps the most serious ob
jection to it from the point cf view of
taste is the hindrance it presents to any
tendency in onr other garments to be
come .more picturesque. Every visible
article of outfit has to be brought to the
aesthetic level of the headpiece. A chim
ney pot hat crowning a tasteful costume
reduces it to ridicule. Blackwood's
The Great Irish Famine.
As winter advanced the distre
deeper and fiercer. It was a hard winter,
cold rains and snows alternating. To
famine and fever was added cold. Hun
dreds of cabins in County Cork hail
nothing on their earth floors save a few
rotten bundles of straw not a blanket,
'not a stick of furniture." Neithr-
could the people afford in many cases
even the cheap peat fires. The men
tramped barefoot through the snow to
the relief works. Their raers hardlv env-
ered their bones. It was the commonest
thing in tho world for men to be "struck
with the cold" and die in a day or t.-arn
All over the country men and women
could be seen "rediiririnir the notatn
grounds, in hopes of finding some few
remaining." They were bending over
the fields which the sheep had deserted,
trying to find turnip roots. Families
were known to have lived for weeks "nn
the flesh of horses that had died."
