■*W VIEW OF MATRIMONY.
Malal Oflaioai Thai 11 |( ■ *,
flehool boards and (hp po*t office d«-
ptrtment agree in holding that matri-
mony ia woman's profession and voca-
tion, and that when a woman marriea
•he secures means of livelihood and
no right to engage in other pur-
Nits to the exclusion of men or of
Women who are not married.
Ia Norfolk, Va„ a woman employed
«• • teacher, being aware of the rule
excluding women having husband* t«
•npporf them, married secretly, 'an4
when the fact was discovered the wa«
forced to resign. Hut she decided
that sTie would rather teach thaa
t>e a wife, and she offered to obtain a
divorce in order to retain her place
Thi* remarkable offer was rejected by
^ .chooi board, which may or may
ot have won thereby the gratitude of
tllO gentleman who lias the happiness
■to be the lady's husband, and she
promptly employed counsel to sue the
city for breach of contract.
In the case of a clerk in the Indian-
apolis post office, the Washington au-
thorities have ruled that when a fe-
male employe gets married she must
Maign and leave the government aer*
It remains to be seen whether the
general adoption of such a rule will
tend to discourage matrimony or di-
minish the fervor of woman's desire
to do man's work in the world, observes
1 , Philadelphia North American,
•orely not all women cou'd he induced
y the prospect of a small salary to
d vorce their husbands or to remain
•pinsters all their lives.

The Xew England farmer must for-
tify himself in his stronghold against
the seasons. He must be ready to
adapt himself to a year that permits
him to prosper only upon decidedly
bard terms. But the California in
country has, during the drought,
•ore leisure, unless, indeed, his am hi-
tion for wealth too much engrosses
■im, says the International Monthly
Wa horses are plenty and cheap. His
Woit cropa thrive easily. He is able
to supply his table with fewer pur-
chases with less commercial inde-
jwndence. His position is, therefore
Jesa that of the knight in his castle
and more that of the free dweller i?
the summer cottage, who is. indeed,
not at leisure, but can easily deter-
BMne how he shall be busy. It is of
Jiflle importance to him who his next
neighbor is. At pleasure he can ride
•r drive to find Tils friends; can
caooae, like the southern planter of
twiner days, his own range of hos-
vitality; can devote himself, if a man
•f cultivation, to reading during a
good many hours at his own choice,
or, if a man of sport, can find during
a great part of the year easy oppor-
vr t",ntin>? or ff>r camping
Both by himself and for the young
people of his family.
In the dry season he knows before-
hand what engagements can be mad
without regard to the state of the
weather, since the state of the weath
cr is predetermined.

The London papers note that the

the center of the trade, has been great-
ly curtailed by the South African war.
It is said that there will be a deficiency
of nearly $270,000 worth of feathers
flt the next sale in Mincing lane. To
these sales, which take place six times
a jear, buyers come from every part
Of the continent, and even from Amer-
ica. Over $4,000,000 worth of feathers
•re sold every year, making an average
Of J67-..000 at each sale. Since the cap-
ture of the Khartoum there has heeu

from Barbary and, though the South
African feathers still command the
higher price, their supremacy is threat-
ened by the Barbary feathers'. At Minc-

•bout 110 to IL'O ,0 the pound, and at
the highest price this works out at less
than 75 cents each \s many of the
white feathers scarcely need cleaning
■nd as dyeing and curling are very in-
expensive, either the middleman or the
milliner must reap handsome profit*
from the fashionable weakness for
these beautiful feathers. The smaller

bird are usijd for bo/in.

*i.% ni,pd States government and
the Canadian government are com-
bining in an efTort to stop the smug-
gling of and unlawful influx of C hina-
men into Canada and the United
Mates. Both countries have suffered
within the last few years, and Canada
has unintentionally helped to break
the United States exclusion law.
A representative of the United
States customs department is in Otta-
wa at present, acting in conjunction
with the Canadian officers. From
what has been discovered, the Cana-
dian authorities arc convinced that
many more Chinamen than the law
permits have come into Canada in bond
for the last few years, and have then
mysteriously disappeared. It is to the
interest of the transportation com-
panies to see that the law is obeyed,
and therefore, the authorities say, it
must have been customs officials who,
through neglect or otherwise, have
permitted these men to disappear. It
is stated that evidence has been e-
cured against several of these officials
and that a general shake-up will soon
On an average 2,000 Chinamen have
been imported into Canada for the last
tve years. Kach year about 800 of
these have gone through in bond to
vamaica and other places under the
padrone system. About 500 a year

"I saw an article in one of the
technical journals recently," said •
New Orleans engineer, relates the
Times-Democrat, "describing a *o-
eallcd 'centrifugal cannon.' which
•ome genius in Manchester, England,
was supposed to have invented. The
mechanism was said to consist of a
big wheel, which was revolved at a
tremendous rate of speed while pro-
jectiles, fed into grooves on its sur-
face, were hurled through a barrel,
on the same principle that, a boy
throws a stone from a sling. I could
take a piece of paper and convince
you in two minutes that the thing i
a mechanical impossibility, hut the
Itory interested me because it recalled
a very similar device which I saw
years ago at Louisville, Ky.
"It was the invention of a German
machinist named Grisetnann, and I
went to look at it at the solicitation
of a friend, who imagined he had
struck a big thing. I found (leise-
mann at a little shop in the suburbs
of the city, and he proved to be an
extremely intelligent fellow who. un-
fortunately. lacked technical educa-
tion. His 'gun' was set up in the
engine room of the place, and I
couldn't help smiling when I saw it.
It consisted of a flywheel about Ave
feet in diameter, with an attachment
for holding half a dozen wnall can-
non balls against the rim and re-
leasing them at fixed interval*. The
Idea was to connect the wheel with
a steam engine and. when it attained
a certain velocity, to Jet loose the
balls just as they passed a given point
in the revolution, (ieisemann had Bg-
ured that they would fly off at a right
angle and hit a target at the other
end of the Hied, and he invited me to
be present at the test he was going t«
give the following week. To please
my friend 1 went around and I shall
never forget the ludicrous contre
temps that wound up the experiment
About 20 of us were grouped near
the wheel when the inventor slipped
on the engine belt and began to speed

eouple of hundred revolutions a min-
ute when he touched the spring con-
nected with the release mechanism

*oared off at a tangent and went
crashing through the skylight. The
next missile struck a huge pile of
casting. I Kill need off and hit the boiler
with a smash like 40 bass drums aU
being beaten at once. Exactly where
.he others landed I can't sav'. for by
that time I was beating n rapid re-
treat; but it seemed to me that it wat
raining cannon balls for at lea«t five
aiinutes. Several of the visitors were
howled over like ninepins, and every-
tning in the engine room was more 01
iess damaged except the target That
escaped unscathed, (ieisemann him-
self had crawled into an ash pit at
the first fire, and when he was
dragged out he was a pitiable-looking
object. He was weeping bitterly, but
