Ttie National liaseball league lias
decided to adopt the double umpire

that by sending up a cite to which is
attached a collector of electric sparks

Preparations are being made for
lioldintr a convention of cotton grow-
ers of southern states in Atlanta, ( .,
on December 18, for the purpose of ef-
fecting an organization to control the
production and sale of cotton in the
south and to fight trusts that seek to
lower the priee of cotton.
An electric road, it was said, will
soon be built from New York to Phil-
adelphia that will enable passengers
to make the journey at the rate of *J00
miles an hour. Tesla, the electrician,
says the scheme is feasible and that
the speed can without difficulty be at-
tained and without inconvenience tu
the traveling public.
The greatest X ray machine in the
■world was exhibited the other night
in the Lawrence scientific school of
Harvard college at Cambridge, Mass.
It has an electric motive force of 1,200,-
000 volts, which is about equal to the
voltage of 'i,400 electric cars. It gives
a spark 48 inches long—an achieve*
ment hitherto unknown.
The New York World recently pub-
lished a carefully compiled record of
the fatal and serious injuries incurred
in football games in the leading
schools and colleges in the I'nited
States, the record covering the latter
part of last season and the first of this.
There were eight players actually
killed, 17 maimed or injured for life
and 120 other players "jumped on"
until they were insensible or other-
wise severely hurt There were also
135 other casualties, which are elas<
si tied as minor.
The great globe which is to be the
feature of the Paris exposition is now
nearly completed. Elevators and
stairways will run to nine tiers or

temperate or the arctic and antarctic
circles and make a thorough study of
the earth's surface. Every place of
any note will be given and ull towns of
5,000 inhabitants, while larger towns
will be marked according to scale.

The problem of how convicts shall
l>e kept at work without competing
with free labor has seemingly been
solved by the law which went into ef-
fect January 1 last in New York. This
provided that all state institutions
should purchase their supplies from
the prisons, if such could be manufac-
tured there. Since the law went into
operation requisitions were received for
over $750,000 worth of goods, which
guarantees the continuous employment
of convicts. As it costs but #500,000
annually to maintain the prisoners
they are thus made self-sustaining.
The United States circuit court of
uppculs iu St. Louis recently handed
down an opinion that the boycott was
not a legal weapon. Judges Sanborn
and Thayer said that men had no
right to form a conspiracy to deprive
a company of its rights to manage its
own business, but Judge Caldwell dis-
sented from his associates in a lengthy
opinion, in which he said: "The only
weapon of defense the lnborer can ap-
peal to is the strike or boycott or both.
These weapons they have an undoubt-
ed right to use so long as they use
them in a peaceable and orderly man*
Prof. E. Stone Wiggins, of Ottawa,
Ont., believes that the aerolite which
fell near Hinghamton a short time ago
and is alleged to have contained a
piece of iron with hieroglyphics was
a message from Mars. He said: "My
opinion is that stones have for many
thousands of years fallen from space
upon the earth which contained writ-
ten characters. Many nations speak of
their sacred books as having fullcn

portant records were preser^d in stone

A report was recently made by
Vnited States Labor Commissioner
Carroll I). Wright that the padrone
system of Italian slavery, with all its
attendant miseries, is being carried on
us extensively and successfully in Chi-
cago to-day as ever, notwithstanding
all denials. An investigation has
proved that funy 00 per cent, of the
Italian laborers in that city are under
the absolute control of pad rones.
These poor wretches are the white
slaves of the masters. He must vote
as directed, eat what is allowed him
and in every conceivable way do the
bidding of his owner.
According to a dispatch from Osh-
T<osh. Wis., the worknouse, as a specific
for the tramp evil, has proved effica-
cious in Winnebago, in that state. It
has saved the country during the past
yoar 81,000 a month. During 1800
tramps cost the county $15,800.05. The
cost of maintaining the workhouse
the past year was 308.08. hi 1800
there were 0,100 tramps "handled" in
the county. In 1897 the whole number
was 824, a decrease of 5,875, The en-
tire cost of building the workhouse,
purchasing the site and equipping it,
was $4,400, so that it has been saved
several times over the first year.
A NUMBER of representative women
liave taken hold of the project for es-
tablishing in Washington a tfreat na-
tional university on the lines suggested
by President Washington. They have
started out in u practical manner by
seeking to raise the first $250,000 nec-
essary for the erection of an adminis-
tration building to form the nucleus
of the university and hope to be able
to lay the corner stone on February
22, 1800. Their purpose in the interim
is to urge the matter continuously on
the attention of women all over the
country. They intend likewise to in-
terest all school children in the work.

I had stricture and suffered with retention of
urine for four days, and had been tortured by a
number of physicians in their attempt to relieve
me, but finding no relief I .vent to Dr. Coe's
Sanitarium, and the retention was nt once re-
lieved nnd the stricture cured. I nm now 77
years old and my health is as good as could be
exacted at my age. CHRISTIAN BLOU.

S. T. Fisker, Republic, Kans., writes: I suf-
fered for several years with Bright s disease of
the kidneys. Was induced to no to Dr. Coe's
Sanitarium, after nil other doctors hail given
me up. Dr. Coe said he could cure me. which he
did in less than a year, and to him I owe my life.
I suffered for j-ears with hernia, and finally
went to Dr. Coe and hi^ treatment cured me. I
have been at his Sanitarium many times and

THE ATLANTIC RACE COURSE.
Atlantic (iteaiiiem Keep Growlntt
HliCKcr and l-'natu*.
The new flyer, Kaiser Wilhelm dir
Grosse, which, by a complication of
ganders upon which- the inventor of the
German language himself could hardly
have improved, is to he the "queen of
the seas" until the still newer Oceanic
robs "her" of this distinction, brings
lip, ns each of her predecessors has done
in her turn, the question whether there
is any assignable limit to the advance
011 the Atlantic ferry. Is it worth
while to burn 500 tons of coal a day.
amounting- in the course of a voyage to
the cargo of a good-sized «hip. for the
soke of gaining two or three knots of
Kxpert opinion, as evidenced by the
infallible test of willingness to risk
money on it, seems to be that it is.
Atlantic steamers keep on growing
bigger and bigger and faster nnd fatter
year by year. The Kaiser Wilhelm der
(Jrosse develops three times the power
that has yet been obtained at Niagara,
and the Oceanic will be driven by a
force a third greater than that. If there
is enormous expenditure of energy
while the need lasts, the drain is soon
over. The Atlantic voyage is reduced
to a sprint. A twenty-three knot ship
can make two round trips in a year
more than one of 20 knots and when she
also carries from 20 to 40 percent, more
on each trip, there is considerable mar-
gin for coal bills.
Twenty years ago the commercially
attainable limit of speed seemed r
matter of very simple calculation. Ii
was somewhere between 16 nnd It
knots. Unimpeachable mathematical
formulae showed that the power re-
quired to drive a vessel increased as the
cube of the speed, and it was soon evi-
dent that at this rate the cost of rapid
transit would soon become prohibitory.
But the builders persistently kept on
until they confounded the mathemati-
cians. They proved that the terrify-
ing formulae were accurate only within
certain limits, and that when' the
wearying hill between lfi and 10 knots
was surmounted there was compara-
tively easy traveling 011 the other side.
The development of triple expansion
engines facilitated the work and now
the application of the waterwheel
principle to stenm power opens an
illimitable new vista of inspiring pos-
sibilities. What a torpedo boat can dn
a passenger steamer can do, if it be
made worth her while. A ship as fast as
the Turlinia could make the trip from
Southampton to New York in less than
four days. This feat will yet be per-
formed, and when it is. may it be an
American ship that does it!—N. Y.
AUTUMN'S YELLOW AND GOLD.
\\ lint a llotnnlNt Known About Color
Clianitc of Leave*.
"Probably not one person in a thou-
sand knows why leaves change their
color in the fall," remarked an emi-
nent botanist the other day to a re-
porter for the Star. "The green matter
in the tissues of a leaf is composed of
t%vo colors, red and blue. When the
sap ceases to flow in the autumn the
natural growth of the tree is retarded
and oxidation of the tissue takes place.
Uifder certain conditions the green of
the leaf changes to red; under differ-
ent aspects it takes on a yellow or
brown hue. The difference in color is
due to the difference in combinations
ot the original constituents of the green
tissues and to the varying conditions of
climate, exposure and soil. A dry, hot
climate produces more brilliant folinge
than one that is damp and cool. This
is the reason that American autumns
are so much more gorgeous than those
of England nnd Scotland.
"There are several tilings about
leaves, however, that even science can-
not explain. For instance, why one of
two trees growing side by side, of the
same age and having the same ex-
posure, should take 011 a brilliant red
in the fall, and the other should turn
yellow, or why one branch of a tree
should be highly colored and the rest
of the tree have only a yellow lint, are
questions that are as impossible to an-
swer as why one member of a family
should be perfectly healthy and an-
other sickly. Maples and oaks have the
"Peopleshould be careful not to touch
the gorgeous red and yellow autumn
plants which are not known to be harm-
less. Our two poisonous native plants
display the most brilliant autumnal
colors of any species in our woods and
highways. The poisonous sumach re-
sembles a group of young ash trees.
The poisonous ivy resembles the harm-
I less woodbine. Its leaves, however,
! have but three leaflets, while those of
the woodbine have five."- Washington

Some English officers in India re-
I cently got up a fight between a full-
grown tiger and a two-year-old boar.
1 A pit was made, with sanded floor nnd
10-foot walls, and two doors in the
walls served to introduce the nnimals.
I When the tiger saw the boar, its head
I und tail hungdown likea whipped dog's,
and it tried to get away. The natives
threw things at it. until it growled,
and then the boar charged furiously,
j The tiger leaped like a cat over the
boar, and repeated the act three times.
! At the fourth charge the boar ripped
! the tiger's flank slightly, and then the
grent cat got angry. It turned on the
| pig. grabbed it by the nape of the neck
and shook it like a terrier does a rat.
This done, the tiger dropped the boar
and walked away. The boar, recover-
ing from its dizziness, made another
trial, got shaken up again, and the offic-
| crs then called off the fight and let the
I tiger run back to its cage.—Golden

ItiiNKlim Sect Which Think* Martyr-

Following-upon the recent revelations
concerning* the self-immolating fanatics

sect in the province of Kazan, the mem-
bers of which atlvooaite death by suffo-
cation, beheving that Heaven enn only
be gained by suffering martyrdom in
tins life. Consequently, says the Lon-
don Daiily News, when any member of
t he sect is supposed to be 011 the poind of
death, a small cushion is placed over
the .sufferer's mouth and held there un-
til suffocation ensues, the other mem-
bers standing nround and singing

A new invention for preventing ves-
sels from sinking after being damaged
by collision has been exhibited in Lon-

ping experts. An iron model of n cargo
ship was placed in water, ufter hav-
ing been loaded with bricks. Then a
hole, immense in size compared with
fhe miniature vessel, was opened at the
side. When the water bad risen to n
level with the deck a number of gutta
bags fixed under the deck were inflated
with carbonic acid gas and the ves*
sel ahnost immediately began <0 rise.
