.Surprising I'rocrpM of tlie l'oslnl Tele
graph Company A Cheap Gonial
Stump System l'roiiilm-d
It looks as if Mr. Gould on his return from
the South will have plenty of hard work td
protect his Western Union interests. The
surprising progress made by the I'oslal Tele
graph company is seriously alarming many of
the holders of the Western Union stock. The
lines of Ihi' company now extend as far as
Cleveland and in few weeks will connect
Chicago with New York. The company owns
two patents known as the Leggo automatic
and Grey harmonic systems by means of which
and compound wire it is possible to send
messages both ways at the same time at the
late o 20oo words per minute. The wire
promises to make a revolution in telegraphy.
'I he iron wire is too liable to be influenced by
storms and other atmospheric cause) and
coppei. such as is used for electtic light pur-
Eoscs is too apt to sag and thus endanger
uildings and interrupt the current The new
compound wire consists of a core ol steel
wire able lo resist a great tensile strain and
covered with copper which next to silver is
(lie best known conductor.
This wite is one-third cheaper than iron
wire of enual conductivilv. and lis low resist'
ance admits of the use of batteries ol only a
few cells. Among other advantages the com-
pany promises to the public is a method by
which private commercial and financial firms
may communicate with their correspondents
without the knowledge or intervention ol tne
employees ol the company.
They also promise a postal stamp system
such as is used in England and cheap and
uniform rates Leading spirits ol the com-
pany are Messrs. George . Roberts Henry
Cummtngs and Professor Elisha Grey. The
first of these plucky and enterprising men put
over half a million in the company and n lib-
eral support on the part ol several lioston
capitalists assured tne success oi tne venture
Some two years arm I. K. Keene had con
trol of these patents and project but he
allowed certain hostile electricians to talk
him out of it and Mr. Roberts took the
thing up. '
(he reports of drought In California
have thrown a eood deal of doom over tlv
business prospects of the Pacific coast. There
hai been some rain in the south of the State
but the central and northern counties are as
drv as a hone and the wheat crop n practi
cally ruined. Of course grapes and fruit will
rather gain than lose by this weather and Mr.
C. P. Huntington avers even should the
wheat crop be poor there is plenty ol grain on
hand from last year to be handled by his road.
but crop prospects have already unfavorably
affected tne price of the Central Pacific slock.

manipulation said the other day when Cen

' That stock does not cost the Huntincton
Stanford Syndicate anything at all. They
have been quietly selling out their holdings
for the last two ycais and putting the money
into the Southern Pacific concern. Now they
arc civine the new route all the business thev
can. When they have sold all they have of
old stock and gone heavily short they will let

"The man ho looks to me as the most

his name mentioned in a quiet way among

man but he has got the "stun ' in lnni.

According to the Christian tradition bells
exercise evil geniuses who cordially detest
them. A quaint German legend relates that
a Kobold furious at seeing a spire raising in
the villacc where he live'd cave a letter to a
peasant and begged mm to place it in the
fioor-bQx of the church. 1 he peasant exam-
ncd the letter curiously as he wrnt alone.
and suddenly noticed some drops of water
lau irom it. tne letter gradually opened
and from it there fell first heavy rain and
thenciscades and cataracts so that the peas
ant covid scrceiysave nis nie by swimming.
The evil spirit had inclosed a whole lake in
nis letter in orcier to submerge the church
This lake covered an immense tract of land
and may still be seen near Kund. Sorcerers
and demons also abominate bells which they
call barking dogs (liellunde tlundej. At
tneir midnight meetings they use only a mil

Aaron Lowe of Hawkinsville. Georgia has
tauaht a flock of chickens to fish for jack
worms with straws. This novel game of jack
straw is played by the chickens providing
themselves with straws inserting them in holes
where the worms burrow and inducing til
worms to crawl inside the straw. Mr. Lowe
says it is a "real treat" to see the chickens fish
