FOR CARRYING DIRT.
A Curious Tramway That I* t'neful in
When excavations are made in
streets, to permit gas or water mains,
electric conduits or sewers to bo laid,
the earth which is removed is usually
thrown out at one side, occupying
%bout as much space as the trench it-
self, perhaps more. In narrow streets
this double encroachment is a serious
matter. For several yeurs. therefore,
some contractors have employed a ma-
chine which carries the dirt along to
the finished portion of the work, and
(hen dumps it into the trench again.
This renders unnecessary any heaping
up of the stuff along the route, except
at the very beginning and end. Re-
sent improvements in this system of
operations bring it into fresh notice
lust now, but the essential principles
At intervals of from sixteen to thir-
ty-two feet along the line stout A-
shaped wooden trestles twenty feet
high are erected, and these support, in
(heir uppermost angles, a succession of
steel i beam.*-. Thus is constituted a
railway by means of which great buck-

THE CASTOR OIL PLANT.
In Imlla It Serve* Many Purposes, Hut No
Medicine I* Made from It.
The castor oil plant, from the brown
seeds of which this useful oil is ex-
tracted, is among the tropical plants
that grow readily here during the sum-
mer. and its deep metallic green, muchly
minuted leaves make it an ornamental
The writer, in walking by the ar-
senal in Central park with a friend who
has spent several years in India, was
surprised to hear what a really useful
plant it is.
“The plant,*’ said a friend, “and
many of its virtues had been known in
India for centuries, but it is a fact,
nevertheless that the first of this oil
was exported to Europe from the West
Indies near the end of the eighteenth
century. In India the oil is much used
as an illuminant. If the oil has been
Void drawn’ and has been carefully
ami properly separated, there is none
better. Another thing in its favor is
that, owing to its slow combustion, a
saving of one-quarter to one-half is
made by using it, as compared with
other oils. It makes an excellent lubri-
cant, and is much used in the dressing
of tanned hides and skins. The na-
tives use it largely for preserving their
water buckets, and without it the
tramway. The moving receptacles hang1
from trolleys, or rolling frames, whose
wheels ride on the lower 11auge of the

huge bowlder that has been loosened
and encircled with a chain. The trestle

in which he carries the water around
much oftener than he does now.
“The ‘syce,’ or groom, uses it to keep
the ‘sahib's’ harness in good order, and
a valuable attribute of the oil is, es-
pecially in such a climate as India, that
it repels rats and vermin. In Assam
the plant is widely cultivated as a food
for the silk worm. The stalks, which
give an excellent pulp, are used for
thatching purposes. The oilcake is
largely consumed as fuel, and is also
used as a manure. In .Teypore, the pal-
ace, public offices and streets are light-
ed with gas made from a cheap variety
«»f castor oil. grown for the purpose.
The natives use t he leaves as fodder for
j their cattle, declaring that it increases
the yield of milk. One thing they havo
not succeeded yet in doing in ludia,
and that is to produce a marketable
medicinal oil. This is chiefly made in
| France, Belgium and England, from
the exported seeds, Bombay doing a
largo export trade in this industry.”—

For the first two days through which
n strong and healthy man is doomed to
exist upon nothing bis sufferings are
perhaps more acute than in the remain-
ing stages; he feels an inordinate, un-
speakable craving at the stomach night
and day. The mind runs upon beef,
bread and other substances, but still,
in a great measure, the body retains its
strength. On the third and fourth
days, but especially on the fourth, this
incessant craving gives place to a sink-
ing and weakness of the stomach, ac-
companied by nausea. The unfortunate
sufferer still desires food, but with a
loss of strength he loses that eager
craving which he felt in the earlier
stages. Should lie chance to get a mor-
sel of food he swallows it with a wolfish

A horny-handed workingman in Mer-
iden, whose wages have never been
over two dollars a day, has saved nine
thousand dollars from them, which lie
keeps at interest in the savings bank.
He must surely have lived very closely;
lie must have been mean toward his
four children, three girls and one boy;

of food; the legs, from weakness, re-
fuse. The sixth day brings with it in-
tense suffering, although the pangs of
hunger arc lost in nil overpowering
languor and sickness. The head be-
comes dizzy; the ghosts of well-remem-
licred dinners pass in hideous proces-
sion through the mind. The seventh
day comes, bringing increasing lassi-
tude ami further prostration of
strength. The arms hang listlessly;
tin* legs drag heavily. The desire for
food is still left to a degree, but it. must
be brought, not sought. The miserable
remnant of life which still hangs to the
snfferer is a burden almost too grievous
to be borne; yot his inherent love of
existence induces a desire st ill to pre-

HE QUESTIONED THE CAPTAIN
A New York Traveler Violate* Salt Wai*i
Etiquette Only Once.
“Once, on an ocean steamer,” said c
traveler to a New York Sun writer
“we had a heated shaft bearing oi
something of that sort, so that the cn
gines stopped for live or six hours. I
had often read anil heard about how
the captain was the great mogul
aboard ship; how about all tilings per-
taining to the affairs of the ship he
held aloof and must not he approached
by the passengers, and that it was a
sort of violation of the unwritten rules
of the sea for a passenger to ask the
captain anything. And there may be
some reason in all this. If one pas-
senger might ask him forty might,
and surely the commander of the ship
ought not to he unnecessarily dis-
turbed by useless questions. We hail
been lying there three or four hours
waiting. There was no danger what
ever, but it was a delay and an incident
of interest, and, of course, all the pas-
sengers talked about nothing else. The
common information was that the lie
lay was due to a heated bearing.
“1 was standing on the upper deck
by the door to the main companion-
way leading to the deck below. The
captain came along the upper deck
from the after part of the ship and
went below by that corapanionway.
He must pass within a foot of me. and,
under the circumstances, it did not
seem like a violently unreasonable
breach of salt water etiquette to ask
him what was the matter, which I did.
A passenger who stood on the other
side of the doorway looked at me with
the amused smile of an older traveler.
The captain said nothing; he simply
passed on, to all outward appearances
quite unconscious of my question or
even my presence.”
WEDDED BY ELECTRICITY.
From Alpha to Omega the Affair tVuf
Hu:i by l hained Lightning.
At a wedding in one of the mi (least
cities, just before the entrance of the
bride, the room burst into a flood of
light from the numerous multi-colored
electric lamps hidden among the dec-
orations. The entrance of the bridal
couple was signalized by the auto-
matic ringing of electrical bells and
playing of electrical musical instru-
ments. During the wedding breakfast,
aftertheiirslcour.se, the light faded,
and then suddenly there glowed illumi-
nations from a swarm of electric lamps.
Hidden among the masses of flowers,
glowing from the hearts of jellies and
from translucent vases it seemed as il
the genii of the lower world were every
where at work.

lowed that tin* bride herself must not
be left out. In her hair gleamed an
untwinkling star, and, at the first toast,

WHAT ARMY BUTTONS SIGNIFY.
Different I>«n!giiH mxl Styles According lo
(ho Hunk of tho Odicors.
The interrelation of the buttons on a
uniform is just as much a matter of
regulation as the cut of a coat. Tho
general wears two rows of buttons on
tho breast of his frock coat, twelve in
each row placed by fours. The dis-
tance between the rows is live and a
half at tho bottom. Tho lieutenant
general is entitled to only ten buttons
in each row placed by threes. Tho
brigadier general, eight, in groups of
two. The colonel, lieutenant colonel
and major have nine buttons in each
row, arranged at equal distances.
There are different designs, of course,
not only for the buttons of tho array,
the navy and marine corps, but for tho
different branches of tin* service. There
arc the infantry, artillery and cavalry
buttons, the engineers’ buttons, the

The great success of the chocolate preparations of
the house of Walter Baker & Co. (established
in 1780) has led to the placing on the market
many misleading and unscrupulous imitations
of their name, labels, and wrappers. Walter
Baker & Co. are the oldest and largest manu-
facturers of pure and high-grade Cocoas and
Chocolates on this continent. No chemicals are
used in their manufactures.
Consumers should ask for, and be sure that
they get, the genuine Walter Baker 8t Co.’s goods.

Consumption is the destruction of lung-tissue by
germs where the lung is too weak to conquer them.
The remedy is strength—vital force.
Scott’s Emulsion, with hypophosphites, means the
adjustment of hing strength to overcome germ-life.
It is fighting the germ with the odds in our favor.
These tiny little drops ol lat-food make their way
into the system and rc-frcsh and rc-invigorato it.
Whether you succeed with it or not depends on how
good a start the germs had, and how carefullv you can
five. The shortest way tu health is tho patient one.
The gain is often slow.
