The Money Making Scheme of a Remark able Milwaukee Genius. 1 liad a large cork and bung fac tory in Grand avenue, and I needed power to run my machinery. You know, of course, tbat there is un im mense amount of stored up electric ity in a cat. The problem for in ventors has been to invent a way to extract it profitably. Iu the rear of my factory I constructed a 1-story chcular building, some 60 feet in di ameter. On the floor of this I coiled a glass pipe G inches in diameter. The first coil ran around the out side of the room, tho coils gradually growing smaller till tho last, in tho center, was no larger than this table. It gave mo something like a mile of pipe. Tho top and sides of this pipe were lined with rather stiff hair brushes, the bristles being a little more than an inch in length. At that time Milwaukee was over run with cats. It was impossiblo to sleep nights. I put a notice in the paper that I would pay 10 cents a dozen for prime cats delivered at my factory. I got CO dozen the first day and stored them in the basement of the power house. The motor op erated thus: Placing in tho outer end of the glass pipe an imitation rat made of rubber and propelled by a small in terior storage battery, I would then adjust a cat immediately behind it. The rubber rat would start off at a terrific rate it was made to go through tho mile of tubing in from two to three minutes and the cat of course followed furiously, think ing to catch tho supposed animal throughout the entire distance. Gentlemen, it was exciting to watch a healthy, active cat whip about those spirals, with the mechanical rat about a foot ahead and going like a cannon ball. The cat's back and sides rubbed against the brushes, and her electricity was thus ex tracted. With a storage battery and by sending a cat through every five minutes I generated enough elec tricity to operate my entire plant, light my factory and sell power to run neighboring passenger elevators and small machinery. It also took tho yowl out of tho cats, and gradually the city became quiet At tho end of a week a cat could be caught and used again. In terview in Harper's Weekly. Agriculture In "Wyoming. Hay is a chief crop in Wyoming. Wheat and other cereals are vory important. Of these moro aro raised every year. In some instances thoy have made extraordinary yields. Po tatoes are of a very good quality, and a promising industry is that of rais ing sugar beets. Tho climate and soil aro very favorable to their growth, and they product) an unusual percentage of starch and sugar. It is. however, true that Wyoming's agneultural progress has been slow. There has hitherto been invested $10,000,000 in irrigating ditches with a length of about 8,000 miles and commanding 2,000,000 acres of the best lands in the state. These ditches wero most of them planned and started while tho cattle business was at its height. When it collapsed in 1885, a large proportion had to be abandoned from want of capital. Again, many miles of ditch ing wore built by stockmen not for irrigation, but to got titles to pasture lands. Others were built to get con trol of water rights and with no in tention of immediate uso. Thus of all the land under ditches at the pres ent timo only about 10 per cent can be irrigated, and only 1 per cent is actively cultivated. New York Sun. A Submerged Continent. Dr. Bowdier Sharpe suggested in a lecture on the geographical distribu tion of birds before tho Royal insti tution in London that thero was onco a great continent with its center at the south polo, now submerged under 2,000 fathoms of ocean. It embraced, ho said, South America, Madagascar, Mauritius, New Zealand and Australia, and thus is explained tho existence of tho cognate strn thious birds tliat now exist, or once existed, in those countries.

Opinions of the Message. , Washington, Aug. 0. The message of tho president was received by con gress with a degree of attention and earnestness that has seldom been ac corded to a state paper. A i otable fact was tho general absence of adverse criti cism from a party point of view and among .hose who have reserved the ex pression of their Judgment, Democrats quite as numerous as Republicans. Gorman Bald: "Tho message Is a clear out statement of the president's views. All the commeut tbat I have heard In the senate Is that It Is as terse and clear a statement as could have been made." Bonator Alllsou remarked: "It lea very fair message." But he thought the tariff references of the president calculated to disturb business further at a very critical time.
