Nlonitor-Transcript General Philip Schuyler of Revolu- tionary fame had planned a series of locks to overcome this descent of the river. Knowing that the success of tbe project would depend upon the fa- vor with which the Dutch farmers, settled near the river, received it. he visited them. Calling a meeting at a tavern, he unfolded his plan. The old Dutchmen loved and honored Schuyler. for he was the head of an old Dutch family. They were delighted with the prospect of the commerce of the state sailing past their farms, but they could not comprehend how boats could ascend Little falls• ,, The general by means of drawin,s explained the principle of locks. It was in vain. The stolid Dutchmen shook their leads, saying that they did not believe a word of It. Water would not run uphill, and it was useless for the general to endeavor to make them believe that it would. The general went to bed mortified at his failure. Turning over the thing in his mind, a happy thought suggest- ed itself. He arose, lighted a candle, took a knife and a few shingles and went into the tavern yard. Digging a miniature camel of two different levels, he connected them by a lock of shin: gles. Then he summoned the Dutch- men. who came grumbling at being aroused from their slumbers. Pourin water from a pail into the little canal, he locked a chip through from the low- er to the upper level. "'Veil. general, dot beats eferything!" exclaimed the astonished Dutchmen• "Now ve understands undve goes sit you unt y/our canal!"--New York Press.

FOR HUMAN OR ANIMAL FLESH k remedy that is equally efficacious tn healing the wounds, sores, sprainq or other ailments of the flesh of man or beast. BALLARD'S SNOW LINIMENT A healing remedy to effectively meet the needs of animal flesh need not be a harsh, strong mixture, too drastic for the human body; Ballard's Snow Liniment is proof of this. It ranks with the best of the flesh healing remedies designed for man; and it is equally as prompt in curing the wounds and flesh, diseases common among animals. Ownerg of blooded horses Prefer it to any other liniment because it leaves no disfiguring scars in any of the minor accidents or ailments. It heals by a mild power to which the flesh of horses responds' readily. It is of reat value in healing harness galls, barbed wlre cuts, wounds, festering sores "and many other ailments to which horses are subject. In the relief of human suffering, it has done a world of good, particularly in easing the pains of rheumatism, neuralgia, sciatica and lumbago. When gently rubbed in where the pain exists, it gives a most gratifying relief to the afflicted. s a household remedy for cuts, burns, bruises, ipralns, contracted muscles, atlf£ neck, frost bites, swellings, chill- blaln, ivy poisoning, there ia nothing better on earth.

No foreigner knows what the Arab To few has it been given to un- derstand what he thinks. Within his house he is as much master in Algiers as he is in Mecca, so long as he avoids the appearance of what the tnfdel calls evil and so long as he complies with certain demands, equally foolish and outrageous to him, in respect of regis tration, vaccination, sanitation and the like. To any one who has ever seen for a moment behind the veil of native life there is something almost terrifying about the impenetrable mystery of these silent houses. Things happen there and human nature assumes as- pects there of which the western world never dreams. I confess to being un- easy when I see careless and ignorant westerners--certainly when I see west- ern women--walking alone in the na- tive quarters of eastern towns. Suppose one of those dark doors should open suddenly, the stranger be dragged quietly within and the door shut! That stranger might disappear forever without leaving a single trace. It would be useless to search unless the authorities were prepared to ran- sack every house to its most private apartments in a whole district, and to do that would be, if not to provoke a revolt, at least to stir up such danger- ous unrest and hostility as to make it impossible. What might happen to that stranger is best not considered. If his or her captors so chose there would be no more trace than marks the spot where a stone has fallen into the sea. Such an event is, of course, very unlikely, but it has horribly happened and might happen again.--Sir Henry Norman, il. P., in Scribner's. A ROMANCE OF TRADE. The Start and Rise of the Fameu= Krupp Gun Works. The famous cannon foundry of Krupp, at Essen, was established in 1811 by Frederick Krupp, who aban- doned a successful grocery business at the instigation of two brothers named Von Kechel in order to devote himself to the manufacture of cast steel. The process was then unknown in Germany. and the article itself went under the name of "English steel" be- cause it was imported from England. Krupp had money, and the Kechela had or pretended to have technical knowl- edge. The firm started its operations in an old water power mill at Altenes- sen. The experiments of the Von Kechels were unsuccessful. For nearly two years they did their best, but all their efforts to produce "English steel" failed. In the end Krupp decided to get rid of them after having spent one- half of his fortune in experiments and took over the management of the work himself. For a long time he had no luck. and it was only after some years of disap- pointment an:l labor that a satisfactory metal was pro(hwed. It was under his son Alfl'ed that the business first real- 15' began to flourish. Its exhibit at'the Lottdotl exposition of 1851 revealed to the world that a little known German firm was producing iron and steel that could not be bettered by the industry of any other country• Orders from the Prussian government followed, and the name and fortune of the firm were made.--Philadelphia Inquirer. Built In Blood. The winter palace of the czars was built in blood. Almost every stone of the walls and every square yard of the plaster lining them cost a life. Nich- olas had given the order that the pal- ace must be rebuilt in a year, and what was human life against the des- pot's will? Six thousand men were kept at work day and night, with the palace heated at 30 R. to dry the walls rapidly, while the temperature outside was often 30 degrees below zero R. The men could only work with ice packs on their heads, and, experienc- Ing a daily change of 60 degrees, they died by the score every day. By the end of the year the death roll was some thousands, but the palace was finished. A Wise Woman. "Now, for $2," announced the star gazer, "I will furnish you with a philter which will make your husband love you to the exclusion of all oth- ers." "I don't think I'll Invest," decided the practical housewife.
