T fci chief difference between the
savage and the civilized man is in tho
power and the habit of self-control
The savage may be master over othe
savages, but his own feelings he never
masters, and their utterance he neither
subdues nor regulates. Civilization,
however, and experience teach men
that both should be cultivated. Some
of the emotions need development,
some restraint; all need' training. They
are not all fit for utterance, nor of

One of the most extraordinary inci
dents that has yet occurred in connec
tion with evictions took place in Cash-
el bn Monday last. . At the last petty j the reminiscences of dotted lines occu
sesslons held in Cashel the representa-j py' thousands of pigeonholes; a library
tives of the late Dr. Daniel Kyto pro- of crooked marks is piled to the eeil
cefded against a weekly tenant named , ing of a five-slory block on Monroe
Mr. Frank Dwyer for possession of a I street. It is the lartrest man house in
weekly tenement, situated in William
street, for non-payment of rent.
The defense setup was that Mr. Kyte
had left Dwyer the house;, together
with a coffin, which he kept beside him
in his room, but, notwithstanding this
contention, the justices gave a decree
for possession Before the eviction
Dwyer, better known as "Franky
Doodle,' made preparations on a
somewhat extended scale to barricade
the phtce.
On Monday morning the town bailiff
proceeded with a party of police to
William street to carry out the order
of the magistrates. The house, as
already stated, was barricaded,
"Franky" making his appearance at
one of the windows, shouting:
'You can't evict me out of the coffin.

Fortune lies in the accuracy at the
lines and stories in the locations of the
dots. . Maps are as necessary to real
estate men as title deeds,, and nearly
as much depends on their accuracy.
A map is a plain, simple thing that
tells its varnished tale at a glance.
How is it made? Until about the time
of the gnat fire maps were engraved
on stone, copper or steel. The process
was very slow, tedious and expensive.
The "plates soon wore out and maps
cost about as much as a sheet of goltL
About 1870 a Buffalo man invented the
process of making maps on wax. It
revolutionized map-making, and now
maps are as common and nearly as
cheap as newspapers.
The map-maker works in a room
whose temperature can not run below
ninety degrees. Few men work at it
longer than four years, though years
of apprenticeship are required to make
them expert. The lieat becomes un
endurable in the end and they go into
some other employment.
Preparatory to making the original
plate melted beeswax and some hard
ening ingredient are poured on a
highly polished metal table. . For fine
work the wax is as thin as a piece of
paper, but for the coarser kind the
waxen sheet is an eight of an inch
thick. Rough pen and ink drawings
of the work to be done are given the
oiierators. They draw the hair-lines
with sharp-pointed instruments by the
aid of straight-edges. The dotted lines ;
indicate county or township boundaries
are made with little wheels, on whor
narrow edge are cut the peculiarly re
designed lines. AU crooked lines are
made by hand and require an artift's
eye. The names of towns, river,
countries and the like are impressed
in the wax in typa letter by letter.
Every impression must cut through
the wax to the polished steel plate
beneath, for the map is made face
down. When all the lines aad letters
are in, the wax is plaeed under a cooler
temperature, which hardens it. The
wax fs then covered with black lead
and the steel plate, with its waxen
coat, is smpaaiei in an electrotyping
solution. The copper in the solution
covers the black lead and forms a hard
plate which is called the original. The
wax is then peeled off and the printing
surface is presented. The thin copper
plate is backed up with type metal
and the plate is ready for use. It is
usually preserved, however for the
making of stereotype plates from
which the actual printing is done.
In the preparation of the etching's
great care is required to keep the wax
at the proper temperature, as a de
gree too low would "make it hard to
work aud a degree too high would
melt and probably destroy it. Often
many hundred thousand maps of the
:ime pattern are ordered and from
twenty to forty plates are made from
the original. If the maps are small
so many of these plates as can be used
conveniently are placed side by side
on the presses and a sheet of maps is
printed at each impression. The or
dinary advertising real-estate map is
finished when it leaves the press. The
better maps are sized and varnished.
The larger ones are mounted on roll
ers and wooden strips, lhis com-i
pletes the mechanical process of the i
making of a map.
But this is the smallest part of a
map. J he unseen worfe, the prepara
tion of the original draft, represents
the time, labor and money expended.
The story of the dot is not woven in a
dav. Post-office towns are located hv
copies of papers in the Post-office De
partment at Washington; the chief en
gineers of the railroads send profiles
of their lines; county surveyors make
maps of their localities. Where the
Government has made surveys the lo
cation of a section, township or coun
ty line is easily made. But the six
mile township system was not thought
of until the Western reserve of Ohio
was surveyed. In the older States,
where a boundary line begins at a
stone and runs to a whil-e-oak tree,
the trouble begins. Good local maps
are used in these States. But in
countries where no Government surj
veys have been made the greatest
difficulties are encountered. --Chicago

The causes of poison cheese re
mained a mystery, in a scientific point
of view, ontil : the investigations of
Prof. Vaughn, of Michigan, estab
lished the fact of the presence of tyro
toxieoh in poison cheege. Since then,
numerous investigations have served
to eonitrm t.h s eAiilta of t"h nrft.
feasor's experiments. Quite recently.
Dairy Commissioner Ives, of Minne
sota, has investigated, in his official
capacity, a case of poisoning by eating
cheese, which has attracted a good
deal of attention. The thorough anal
ysis of the cheese by the State Chem
ist, Prof. C. W. Drew, showed it to
contain tyrotoxieon. Otherwise the
cheese appeared to be of excellent
quality and extraordinarily rich in fat.
An analysis of four different samples
of whole milk cheese, by ProL Drew,
showed the presence of fat as follows:
No. 4S had 21.46 per cent, of fat; No.
49 had 36.46 per cent.; No. 50 had
89.14 per cent; and No. 51 had 32.44
per cent, of fat.
No. 50 was the sample of poison
cheese and was very rich in fat, as
will be seen. - This excess of fat leads -to
a suspicion that a portion of it
might be due to " pecular chemical
changes undergone through destruc
tive fermentation. No signs of adul
teration appeared. There was only
the presence of the usual quantity of
annatto applied for coloring. ;
- But here let us remark that annatto,
as obtained in market, is not always
the pure vegetable substance that some
suppose. It is not on!y adulterated in
some cases with lead and other ingre
dients, but is polluted with nrine ap
plied to make it keep and to brighten
the color. This accounts for the urin- .
ous odor too often given off by basket
annatto. So annatto is not always the
harmless and clean substance that has
onz been ponularlv su noosed and
taught. "' " - - -
But, in the case under consideration,
as given us personally by Dairy Com
missioner Ives and Prof. Drew, there
does not appear to be any thing un
usual in the coloring matter used. So
the poisonous character could not be
reasonably attributed to this -cause. In
all four samples analyzed the fats were
found to be pure. But the presence of
tyrotoxieon was unmistakable.
Now, whence the presence of this
poison? It does not appear to have
been introduced. The inference is
that it was generated. It is well
known that decomposing albuminous
compounds act as a ferment and a
small portion introduced into the cir-
culatory system of a human being be
comes a very violent poison, often, if

a surgeon has lost his life by the intro
duction, through a slight abrasion of
the skin, of a minute portion of de- ,
composing " albuminous tissue from a
corpse. .' . '. ':
In all probability, the poisonous
principle in cheese has the same origin
from decomposing albuminous mat
ter. Through carelessness and tm
cleanliness, decomposing matter finds
its way into cheese, to there act as a
ferment and develop . tyrotoxieon
throughout the entire mass. . Hence it
is self-evident that too much care can
not be taken in cheesa factories to
keep every thing scrupulously clean.
Every thing that touches tie milk
should not only be carefully washed in
warm water, to which a little sal-soda
or other alkali had been added, but
afterwards thoroughly scalded in boil
ing water water at 212 degrees
Fahrenheit. If this were done in all
cases, we do not' believe we should so
often hear of poison cheese, if we did
at Kll.
In view of these now known facts.
nncleanliness in a cheese factory be
comes criminal; but in view of some of
our experiences, we should not be sur
prised to find that the germs of des
tructive and poisonous fermentation
are often introduced through the ren
net tub, which in many cases we have
found to smell more like carrion
than any thing fit to be introduced
into human food. For this reason we
call the special attention of officials
having the matter in hand to the ren
net tub, when they next have a case
of poison cheese. It is a fearful source
of off-flavor and quickly decomposing
cheese, and why not of poison cheese?
