The Law Reads Differently.
"The sheriff gets $20 a week for
boarding fonr prisoners, and 15 a
week for boarding five. That is the
law, and it take3 brains to get up such
a law." So says the Albany Demo
crat, and the Democrat i3 mistaken.
The law contemplates that the sheriff
shall rcceivo 5 each per week for the
board of four prisoners, and S3 for all
above that number. Thus, for four
prisoners he receives S20, for fivo $23,
for sir $2G, etc. That is the way a
majority of the sheriffs of Oregon in
terpret the law. Perhaps in Linn
county they do differently, but in
nearly every other county So each is
charged for four prisoners, and $3
each for all above that number. It
would be a brilliant law indeed that
provided more money to bo paid for
the board of fonr prisoners than five.

"Washington, Oct. 23. Alleged de
fects in the the new tariff bill formed
an interesting topio of discussion in of
ficial circles to-day, and while defects
wero not thought to invalidate the
bill as a whole, the amendment was
almost unanimous that section 30, of
tho tobacco paragraph, which was
omitted in its entirety, could not be
enforced, and where it by construction
referred to other paragraphs it might
impair their strength as to a law signed
by the president not being a law
passed by congress.
Secretary Halford said tho bill
signed by President Harrison was the
same bill signed by the speaker of the
houso and the president of the senate.
Those officers by their signatures
certified that the bill had passed their
respective branches of congress and
their attestation of that fact was the

The Oldest Switchwoman.
For forty long years Mrs. Mary
Carroll has been the switchwoman
at the Central railroad junction in
this city, where several different rail
road traoks meet During this time
she has always been faithful and effi
cient. She ha3 never been the cause
of an accident. Her trucks have al
ways been right. Her duties have been
responsible, but the road has never
incurred a dollar of breakage, a mo
ment of delay or the in jury of a per
son on her account. She is, perhaps,
the oldest and only switchwoman in
the United States. There are hun
dreds of people who will recall seeing
her in her little switch-house
at the junction, one mile from the
town. After so excellent a record and
so many years of capital service, in
suushino and rain, in cold and heat,
the Central road ha3 placed her in a
Lless irksome position. She has been
made gatekeeper at the shop of the
road in this city. Macon TelegrapJi.

A Ilabr m an Incubator.
A weo bit of a 7 months baby,
weighing between 3 and 4 pounds, is
at the Cincinnati hospital being raised
in an incubator.
Tho weo thing has no finger-nails,
its eye-lids are open, and every hour a
drop or two of digested milk is
dropped into its tiny mouth.
Chickens have had woolen rugs for
mothers, ducks havo been hatched by
hens, and alligatora eggs warmed to
life in the sand, but incubating baby
hood into successful existence has at
least the merit of novelty.
The incubator looks like an un-
painted ice-chest. It is 30 inches
high, 20 wide and contains two com
partments, an upper and lower.
The inside of tho chest is lined with
abestos to prevent the effecfe of radiat
ing heat as well as to make it air-tight.
In tho lower compartment is a galvan
ized iron tank filled with water. The
tank doe3 not fit tightly in ta tho chest,
there being an inch space for the air
to circulate. Hole3 in tho bottom al
low the escape of fonl air, while on a
shelf resting on slats that divide tho
two compartments, lay a basket con
taining the baby. The skin of the
tiny thing is covered with an unctuous
sebaceous matter. The bones of the
head do not set closely together and

Pkovtdenoe, Oct 23. A glove fight
between George Dixon, of Boston,
and Johnny Murphy, of Haverhill,
took placo at the rooms of the Glad
stone club in this city to-night. It
was won by Dixon, Murphy's seconds
throwing up the sponge in the fortieth
round. It was seen at the start that
Murphy was overmatched, but it took
Dixon two hours and forty-five min
utes to whip him.
The fight was for 1,000 a side and
a $1,700 trophy. There was an im
mense crowd in attendance, sporting
men coming from all sections of the
country. The men weighed in at Bos
ton yesterday. Dixon had trained
down to 113J4 pounds and Murphy
tipped the same weight. Murphy's
fighting weight is 108 pounds and
when he stripped in the rincandfaced.
the crowd it was seen that he was too
fat and in build and reach was no
match for his dusky opponent, who
looked like a sleek well groomed
horse, fife to win a canter.
Murphy's staying powers were sim
ply marvelous, and it was astonishing
how ho managed to come up, round
after round, in the face of the terrible
punishment he received. It was
thonght by tlid way the fight started in
that Dixon would win in short order,
aud up to the sixteenth round it looked
as though eaoh succeeding round
would finish Murphy, but he revived
considerably after that round and took
his punishment gamely.
He was badly used up at the finish,
and though barely able to crawl over
the ropes, protested against his sec
ond's tlirowing up the sponge. In
fact, he went over to Dixon's corner
after the referee had given his decision
and Offered to continne the fight
He presented a pitiable spectacle.
His face was streaming with blood and
his mouth was open, gasping for
breath. Dixon seemed scarcely fa
tigued and was uninjured, save for a
bruiso over tlio left eyo and a slight
swelling across the nose.
