Rending instrument with ten keys,
each of which makes one of the
straight or curved lines used in Ro
man letters. It is claimed to have
sent a seventy -si word message in
twenty-five seconds and printed them
in plain Roman characters.
Aboct 2,503 words arc all that are
used in ordinary talking and conversa
tion, although there arc some 20,000
words in the English language. Diff

the words they ne, but the difference
is but slight Shakspere found -i.OOD
words sufficient for all his works.
The Russian government, it is said,
will begin next spring to build its
1,500 mile railroad across Siberia. It
is a big undertaking, and the estima

when the cost of -any project, however
enormous it may be. provided it gives
promise of a reasonable profit is no
longer considered an obstacle.

"Don't snub the reporter," says the
Boston JlerahL Tlie reporter is not
apt to be snubbed. Very few can af
ford to snub him. It is churned says
the Tacoma ITcics, that a union gen

him, lost all chance of fame by un
wittingly insulting a newspaper man,
whereupon the rest agreed never to

throughout the commonwealth. Here

Every grand jury regularly reports
favorably on the proposition to build
a new jail and court house. It does
seem as though the county ought to

The present office of the county clerk
is too small for tho volume of business
which bids fair to increase, rather than
diminish. There is no place at pres
