MISS STONE RELEASED.
She Was Accompanied by Mine.
Tsilka and Her Little Baby.
Constantinople Feb. 23 Miss
Fallen M. Stone the ninericau
missionary who with Mme. Tsilka
was captured by brigands in the
district of Salonika September 3
last has been released awl arrived
at Strumitza Macedonia at 3
oelock this morning.
Nobody was at Strumitza to meet
Miss Stone as the brigands had
given no indication where they
proposed to release the prisoner.
Mme. Tsilkai and her baby- were
also released at4 the same time.
They are all well. Miss Stone im
mediately made herself known to
the anthorities at Strumitza.
The first news of Miss Stone's
release was contained in a telegram
received by Mr. Dickinson the
American consul general at Con-
stantinople from the American vice
consul at Salonika. The telegram
gives no details of the release.
As Strumitza is near the
Salonika-Oskub railroad Miss
Stone will proceed to .Salonika
DOCTOR'S STRANGE REQUEST
Wanted Part of His Remains Shot
One of a Gun.
Cincinnati 0. Feb. 23. After
the remains of Dr. Daniel Schuy
ler Young were cremated today it
was learned that he had provided
for the ashes to be taken to his old
boyhood borne in Montgomery
county N. Y. where his wife was
buried one fourth to be sprinkled
on her grave one-fourth over the
path to his old school house one-
fourth at his old Rome aud one-
fourth shot out of a gun at the old
homestead. This specific disposi
tion of the ashes caused much sur-
prise among the learned associates
of the noted physician scientist
THE SUN IS SELDOM ON TIME.
Ouly Four Days in the Year When
Old Sol is'nt Too Early or Too
Late in Arriving.
The sun does not keep good
time. He is almost always too fast
or too slow. Once about the mid-
dle of April he is just in time
then not before the middle of
June. At the beginning of Sept-
ember he joins the clock a third
time and lastly once more late in
December. Now it would seem as
if he were startled at the way he
had ueglected us. In February
he fell back until he was fifteen
minutes late. By the beginning
of March he will make up five
minutes of his loss and before
the mouth is oyer he will have
caught up to .within five minutes
of the schedule. Meanwhile the
days have been growing longer
very rapidly. We begin Mai eh
with our nights longer than our
days. We end it with our days
longer than our nights. In the one
month we have added to the length
of our day au hour and twenty
minutes a bigger gain than any
other month can show. Professor j

Had a Favor to Ask.
When the late Walter Q. (ires-
ham was holding his first cabinet
positiou that of postmaster-general
under Hie administration of
Presideut Arthur he received a
call one day from an old school-
mate whom he had not seen since
their school das together a quart-
er of a eennny before. J ui jr
Gresham welcomed his old friend
very cordially and the caller hav
ing no ax to grind they had a long
and jolly dial while office.-seekers
kicked their heel.- together in the
antechamber. On learning that
his friend was imw a resident of
New Jersey fhe postmaster-general
remarked with a sarcastic grin
that this was the first callri- from
New Jersey that was not an earnest
pusher for office either for himself
or for some friend and that there
was no state in the union whose
citizens were such determined
besiegers of a cabinet officer who
luffTnothing to give as the people
of New Jersey were.
"That may be true" said the
caller suddenly changing his
manner "aud 1 don't want to
deceive yon Mr. Postmaster-General
for 1 have to something to
ask myself. What I have to ask
of you is not for myself or for any
one person. It is for a whole com-
munity a state in fact and 1
want you to cousider it very
carefully for I am offering you a
chance to endear yourself forever
to the oeoole of a whole state and
mke your name memorable aud
beloved among them and among
their descendants. Beware how
you turn down my request sir.
"What in the world is id" assked
the postmaster-general his manner
changing loo at this portentous
"1 want yon sir" said the
Jtrseyman "to flavor the mucilage
on your postage stamps with New
Jersey applejack." Indianapolis
Phonograph Heard io Miles.
A phonograph that shouts so
loudly i hat every word cau be
heard at a distance of 10 miles has
been tested at Brighton says the
London Mail. You can whisper a
sentence into fhe machine's small
funnel-shaped mouthpiece and it
will repeat it in tones that are
more deafening than the shrieks of
a liner's steam siren. Yet every
word is perfectly articulated and
a shorthand writer 10 miles away
can take down the message as
easily as if yon were dictating to
him in a small room. The machine
is the inveutiorf ofrHoraeeyL. Short 1
of Brighton. In appeiirarice it is
merely au ordinary phonograph
with a large' trumpet measuring
four feet in length. Inside tbi?
trumpet there is a small and deli-
date piece of mechanism that looks
something like a whistle. This is
the tongue of the machine. Instead
of the "records" being taken on
wax iu the usual manner a sap-
phire needle is made to cut the
dots representing ihe sound vibra-
tions on a silver cylinder and
when ihe needle 'ravels over the
metal a second tim the vibrations
cause the whi.-Ur to produce a ser-
ies of air waves and the machiue
thus becomes a talking siren which
t.ru'orms the human voice into a
deafening roaK The experiments
were made near ihe Devil's dyke
Brighton where ihe inventor has
hi.- woiklops. The instrument
was placed on liie roof of the labor-
atory and was made 'to repeat a
number of sentences. At a dis-
tance of 10 miles the .-minds were
(dainty heard by a large number of
people ever' word being perfectly-
disiiuct and at a second trial with
a favorable wind it was found that
au unknown message could be
rakeu down in shorthand at a du-
rance of 12 miles. Over the water
the sounds will carry still further
and under favorable circumstances
they might easily be heard by per
sous on a vessel 15 miles out at
sea. Placed on a lighthouse or
lightship the phonograph would"
give a verbal warning that would
be infinitely more effective than
the foghorns and detonators a pres-
ent in use.

' Story of Her Life
Helei. Keller the remarkable
deaf dumb aud blind girl who
has not only learned to talk but
enjoys every privilege of those who
he?r alul si has i" finished
writinK with hw ow bands tue
storv of her remarkable life for
The L'des' Uone -Journal. In
this she describes her first awaken-
ing to the realization of life and
the world and all that both
contain ; her first impressions andi
feelings and emotions and the
first rays of understanding that-
came to her. Prom that point sbej
tells of the unfolding of her mental
and physical powers how she
learned to think and act how she
received instruction and finally-
became capable of acquiring an
education which place her among
the best educated womeu of her
age in the world to-day. It is a
wouderfnl story wonderfully told.
It will begin iu the April number
of The Journal.
Removing: Ink Stains from Cloth
The removal of ink stains is al-
ways a problem because inks-are
made by so many processes. Soap
aud water will remove some inks
while strong chemicals make little
impression on others. The sooner
the stain is treated the more easily
Mt is removed. Washing and soak-
iug m cold water or iu sweet or
sour milk will remove the greater
part of the ink aud frequently the
stain. Spots on washable articles
should be soaked in milk or water.
Rub the spot and change the liqoid
frequently. After two or three
days if a stain remains wet it
with a strong solution of oxalic
acid and place it in the sun. Af-
ter this rinse very thoroughly.
