The postal savings-bank building in
Amsterdam, Holland, is being con
structed by the "Monier system," a new
method of construction. A steel framework-
like a bird-caee in appearance, is
enveloped in Portland cement, which
prevents the steel from rusting, while
the cement itself is rendered elastic.
The eteel acts entirely ln tension and
the concrete in pressure. This con

Although every housekeeper Is pain
fully aware of the tendency of silver
ware to part with its brilliance and be
come tarnished when exposed to ordi
nary atmospheric Influences, many
probably do. not know that the cause
of the tarnishing is the action of sul
phur in the air. Unless frequently
cleaned, the surface of sliver will be
come black in the course of a few
months. The best way to keep silver
bright, without the necessity of clean
ing, is said to be to coat the surface
with a thin solution of collodion var
nish diluted with spirits of wine. After
being applied with a soft brush the
spirit evaporates, leaving a thin, glossy,
transparent film on the polished sur
face. Warm water removes the var-
nsh. Tarnished silver may be restored
by careful rubbing with a soft cloth
wet with dilute solution of potassium
cyanide one ounce to a quart of water
followed by rinsing.

In the gravest of histories relating to
the Franco-Prussian war It Is stated
that the total want of even tobacco to
make cigarettes of among the French
troops on many occasions did not a lit
tle to dispirit them.
Private Jones, who obtained the Vic
toria Cross at Rorke's Drift, said that
In the very thick of the fight several
comrades lighted their pipes with
blazing fragments of wood from tha
wooden hospital which had been fired
by the Zulus, and at Majuba Hill one
of the men was found dead with the
stump of a cigar between his clinched
teeth. Amid the awful carnage of the
Russo-Turkish war Turks horribly
mangled were frequently found smok
ing In the midst of their agony and ut
tering no sound of complaint
Mr. Archibald Forbes, the great war
correspondent, has told bow before
Metz, in the Franco-Prussian war, a
soldier terribly wounded craved but
one relief a cigar and he observed
soldiers firing away at close quarters,
pipe In mouth. Gen. Von Benthelm,
observing a sight like this, asked one
of the men for a light and himself
coolly lighted his own cigar and then
led his men on. Another war corre
spondent, belonging to one of our great
daily papers, tells that he saw at Saar-

The centenary of the establishment
of Yale was. celebrated at the time that
Whitney was beginning his experi
ments and investigation that gave to
the world his cotton gin, changing the
civilization of the South, making
slavery its corner stone, a civilization
that grew until at last it matched its
strength with the inconsistent civiliza
tion of the North, Involving In that
struggle the whole question of the per
manency of slavery and of the Union,
Whitney s cotton gin had been per
fected when Yale celebrated its cen
tenary, but it was not until three or
four years after this apparatus had
been put in operation in the South that
its epoch-making influence was discov
ered. Eleven years after Whitney's
graduation the United States was pro
ducing, because of his cotton gin,
twenty-two times more cotton than
before the invention of his machine.
Macaulay asserted of Whitney's in
vention that it did more for the power
and progress of the United States than
Peter the Great did for Russia.
It was about the time that Whitney,
trained at Yale, had perfected and put
into operation an apparatus that

not capable of managing a house ln
every department of it she is not old
enough to get married. No matter how
plain the home may be, if It is neatly
kept and the meals (no matter how sim
ple) served from shining dishes and
clean table linen, the husband will
leave his home with loving words and
tnougnts ana took aneaa witn eager
ness to the time when he can return.
Let a girl play the piano and acquire
every other accomplishment within her
power, the more the better, for each
one will be that much more power to
be used in making a home happy. At
jthe same time, If she cannot go Into
the kitchen, if necessary, and prepare
a good meal, and serve it after it is
prepared, she had better defer her mar
riage until she learns. If girls would
thoroughly fit themselves before they
marry, there would be fewer discon

With many millions of families Syrup of Figs lias become the
ideal home laxative. The combination is a simple and wholesome
one, and the method of manufacture by the California Fig Syrup
Company ensures that perfect purity and uniformity of product,
which have commended it to the favorable consideration of the
most eminent physicians and to the intelligent appreciation of all
who are well informed in reference to medicinal agents.
Syrup of Figs has truly a laxative effect and acts gently with
out in any way disturbing the natural functions and with perfect
freedom from any unpleasant after effects.
In the process of manufacturing, figs are used, as they are
pleasant to the taste, but the medicinally laxative principles of the
combination are obtained from plants known to act most bene
