At Kortl Nourse went Into the post

oegan a careful examination of the
postofflce, and found It eonmwted with
mall for the army. Xhey searched ev
ery uook and cranny, throwing the let

Nourse did not know the name of his

when he asked the answer was, "They

Only two. of the thirteen bills intro

the request of organized labor have be

factories and stores.
No less than 140,000 homes are held

nearly 50 per cent in twenty years.
The New York State factory inspector
says In his report to the legislature
that there has been vast improvement
in tenement and dwelling house work
shops, but that much remains to be
done. He pointedly refers to the fact
that "men who hold their heads high
in the business world and presumably
some also in the religious world indi
rectly traffic in the very lifeblood of
their fellow men." '
The United States labor commission
er sets forth 'some very interesting
facts. Aided by machinery, he says,
4,500,000 men turn out a product which
would require the labor of 40,000,000
men if produced by hand. In America
the advantage derived from machinery
is about twice as great as In Europe,
so that the actual production of the
United States is equal In productive
power to 150,000,000 Europeans. With
labor-saving machinery one generation
of men can do the work of four or five
generations of hand workers.
A Little Sermon on Habit.
This is what a minister has to say
about habit etymologlcally:
. "Habit" is hard to remove. If you
take away the first letter, "a bit" Is
left If you take off another letter, you
still have a "bit" left While If you
take off another the whole of "It" re
mains. If you remove another It Is
not "t" totally used up. All of which
goes to show that If yon wish to get rid
of a bad habit you must shake it off
The Heaviest Railroad Train.
A locomotive of the Pennsylvania
Railway recently drew a train about

to Harrlsburg, 132 miles, in twelve
hours. The weight of the train behind
the tender was. 5,212 tons, the locomo

have been the heaviest train ever

ALL MET WITH MISFORTUMC
Superstition Relative to the Number

"I would not sit down to dinner in a
party of thirteen," said a broker who
Is credited with plenty of "horse sense,"
"for the simple reason that I don't In
tend to give coincidence a chance to
play Into the hands of superstition.
Moreover, I have had one very d!sa
greeable experience along that line. In
the early spring of 1896 I was one of
a bachelor party gotten up to give the
usual send-off to a friend about to com
mlt matrimony. There were fifteen of
us in the crowd, but at the last moment
two were called away. That reduced
us to the fatal number, which nobody
noticed until we were seated at the
table, wherf a desperate effort was made
to scare up another guest, but no one
could be found. So we laughed the
matter off and went on with the fun,
but there was a palpable undercurrent
of depression and several of the boys
acquired lachrymose Jags which, next
to the English cemlc newspapers, are
saddest things in the world.
"If yen are not familiar with the
terms I will explain that a lachrymose
Jag Is the stage of Inebriety at which a
man tells you the story of his life and
weeps on your shoulders at Intervals of
six months in the narrative. However,
to get to the point, two ef the fellows
present died in 1896, and the way the
circumstance demoralized nearly all the
ethers was simply amazing. In several
ef them it effected a total change la 'dis
position. The death of distant rela
tives, petty misadventures In business,
occasional attacks of sickness and a
hundred and .one other incidents of
everyday life were all charged up to
the blight of thirteen, and finally, about
a year and a half later, I became so
tired of hearing that sort of stories that
I took the pains to collect statistics on
another stag party given within a few
weeks of ours. An even dozen had
been present and the net result was:
Two deaths, three business failures,
one lost a leg and one lost an eye In ac
cidents, one embezzler skipped out, one
divorce and two men gone to the doss

hoboes, either, but average chaps about
town, and their catalogue of disaster
put an end to further croaking over our
thirteen supper. AH the same, I don't

Previous to this three doctors had
treated me. They diagnosed my trouble

All this medical treatment did not
benefit me in the least. I was in a
terrible condition. There was scarce

chief trouble was weakness, and after
laborious efforts to get up stairs I
almost went into a faint and on sev

encouragement, and I began a sys

At the end of the seventh or eighth

quantity and a better quality of blood
in my veins I was relieved of that
shortness of breath and quick heart
action which had been my chief trou

enabled to do my daily duties with a
cheerfulness which I had never before
experienced. I always, as a prevent

Africa has inspired Walter Severn, an
English artist, to invent and patent a
form of movable breastworks, by the

might be captured without much dan

on bicycles at such an angle that bul

steel plates need not weigh more than
five or six pounds tk the square foot,
so that the weight on each bicycle will
not be more than that of an ordinary
man. It is intended that the movable
shields shall be pushed ahead of the
attacking column by a number of
strong men, detailed for the purpose.
They may also be used to protect the
wounded, to form squares, and to pro
tect men who are cutting wires. They
can be removed from the wheels and
transported by wagon, and, when prop

Traveling In Colonial Days.
After the period of walking and
canoeing had Its day In colonial times,
nearly all land travel, for a century,
was on horseback, just as It was in
England at that date. In 1672, there
were only six stage coaches in the
whole of Great Britain, and a man
wrote a pamphlet protesting that they
encouraged too much travel. Boston
then had one private coach. Women
and children usually rode seated on a
pillion behind a man. One way of prog
ress which would help four persons

was called the "ride-and-tie" system.
Two of the four persons who were
traveling started on their route on foot;
two, mounted on the saddle and pillion,
rode about a mile, dismounted, tied the
horse, and walked on. When the two
who had started on foot reached the
waiting horse they mounted, rode on
past the other couple for a mile, dis-
mornted, tied and walked on; and so
