A Boy Hero.
Philadelphia, May 25.—The
heroism of 8-year old Willie
Haines, in climbing npon the dis-
secting taule at the Charity hos-
pital, NorrUtown, today, to have
his own skiu sliced ofi and graft-
ed upon his little brother's scald-
ed body, brought moisture to the
eyes ol the earxeooa. Willie had
been told of the terrible suffering*
wbtch his younger brother, John-
ny, was undergoing at ttie hos-
pital. Willie said to his father:
"Well, papa, I'm going to let
them slice my skin off for Johnny,
and if I get through with it all
right then you may take your turn
next," and so Willie tcdav came
to the hospital, pluckily climbed
upon the dissecting table, said
•'I'm ready," and closed his eyes
The physicians who were also
ready, etherized the lad, and then
Drs. Esenberg and Lundy washed
and shaved an arm and leg and
with their keen instruments care
fully removed four pieces of skin,
each six inches long and one and
a half inches wide.
The strips were laid on the de
nnded portions of little Johnny'.-
raw limbs and bandaged, and are
now waiting for nature as the
healer to do the rest.

The harm boats between the citioa of
New York and Brooklyn may be cited
aa early attempt! to solve the problem
of transport by water. An interesting
feature of these early constructions was
the n«e of a water wheel 12 feet or so in
diameter, with 24 floats, the latter in-
clined slightly to the radins so as to
avoid the lifting of the water, which is
■o troublesome a feature of the radial
float. These horse boats appear to have
been of three general designs. In the
first a frame, shaped somewhat like the
letter "A" or an inverted "U," was
mounted to turn around its vertical
axis. Four of these frames, dividing tbe
circle into eight parts, made a sort of
skeleton cone, and this cone was caut'cd
to revolve by eight horses moving in a
horizontal circular path about 20 fi ct
in diameter. The fare gear, 15 feet in
diameter, drovo a three foot pinion
mounted upon the axis on the water
wheel shaft and the wheels were within
the frame in an opening between half
The second plan was of a conical
skeleton frame at an incline of about
one in two, so that the horses had to
travel up this inclined surface, cans
it lo rotate with their weight and li
In the third plan—a smaller design—
the paddle wheels were, biought into u
well between the two half hulls of the
beat, catamaran fashion, as in the first
anangement, and the frame was mount-
ed above the wheels, and its rotating

How He Clinched His Appointment as
I'niteil States Marshal.
' 'Olio of General Shelby's saving traits
was his ability to say exactly -tlie right
thing to the right man in the right
place. A heavy light was made on hini
when he was a candidate for the mar-
shalsliip. His opponents had told Presi-
dent Cleveland that Shelby had been
concerned in the assassination of the of-
ficers of Cass county who had issued
some railway bonds against the wishes
of the people. Shelby prepared himself
with affidavits from leading citizens and
went to Washington. Oisdaining aesi^t-
ance, he obtained a personal interview
with Mr. Cleveland. When he entered
the executive office, Representative
Dockery, tho banker at Gallatin, one of
his bitterest opponents, was present.
" 'I have been accused of assassina-
tion, Mr. President,' said General Shel-
by, 'and have been informed that the
appointment to the United States mar-
shalship for the western district of Mis-
souri hinges upon that charge. In jus-
tice to a Democrat I want you to exam-
ine these papers at your leisure.'
" 'You hi.vi) been oorrectly informed.
General Shelby,' «aid the president.
'That charge has been made. I will look
at your papers.'
"Congressman Dockery interjected a
remark. 'I will bid you good morning,
Mr. President,' said the general. 'There
is nothing that man'—pointing to Dock-
ery—'can say to me in this office or in
your presence. There are many places
in which he can meet nre if he desires.'
"There was a distinct challenge in
his manner and glance, but it never
came to anything. Within an hour Mr.
Cleveland caused General Shelby to lie
informed that he would be given the
appointment. The entire business was
settled iu less than half a day. . It was
the guiding principle of General Shel-
by's life to go straight for anything tl.at
he wanted and straight against anything
that he didn't like."—Detroit Free
Charles H. Clark of the Hartford
Courant, now traveling in Mexico,
writes: "One custom prevails ou this
road that The Courant has long urged
for Connecticut. Wherever they kill a
man they put up a black cross. You f ee
them all along the road; here 1, there
3; at one spot are 14. Take Connecti-
cut, with its 1,100 grade crossings and
its annual butcheries, and before long
we would have such an array of crosses
that the grade crossing would have to
go. Here, of course, the road is the
rarity. No feuce pens in the railroad.
If anything is ou the track, the engine
removes it. A traiu hand told me that,
one trip being late, they hurried, and
in consequeuce killed three steers and
five burros in eight hours. All alorg
the track are skeletons stripped by the
turkey buzzards and whitened by the
suu. But cattle are as plenty as they
are big dowu this way."
"Young man," said Senator Sorghum
to the protege who had bee 11 promised
au appointment, "I shall not congratu
late you, but there is one thing 1 desire
to say "
"What is that?"
"If you display anything like the en-
ergy and anxiety iu tilling this position
that you showed in getting it you can't
kelp being \ brilliant success."—Wash

The great strides made by the j
Xew York Times within the last j
few months form a notable chap-
ter in American journalism.
During a period of general busi-
ness depression the New Y ork
Times has made steady progress,
having within six months nearly
doubled its circulation. This
growth, while indeed gratifying,
serves only to stimulate the man-
agement to greater efforts. With
a view to the introduction of the
New York Times in homes where
it is not now received, where the
improvement that has been made
may not be known, a plan has
ueen devised to reward those who
may assist in the work of increas-
ing its circulation by offering to
any man, woman or child any one
of the standard high grade one
hundied dollar bicycles, 18D7
model, if they will secure one
hundred (100) new subscribers
for the New York Times, each for
three months—$3 if delivered by
carrier; $2 50 ii sent bj' mail.
That no effort to increase the cir-
culation of the New York Tin es
may go unrewarded to those who
find they can not secure more th,s!:
fifty subscribers for three months
each, the choice will be given of
any fifty dollar (retail price) bi-
cycle, American manufacture, and
to those who in their efforts fall
short of fifty subscribers theie
will be paid 50 cents in cash fur
every eubscribor less than fifty.

Any person desiring to under-
take the work of securing 100 sub-
scribers should notify the New

and blanks will be furnished.
Under no circumstances will a
subscription be accepted as mak-
ing up the number required of
any person who has been a regu-
lar reader of the New York Times
since January 1, 1897. All lists
will be investigated, and if it is
found they include the name of
any person who has recently been
a regular reader, that subscrip-
tion will not be accepted to make
up the list of 100.
It is distinctly understood that
all lists of names are subject to
verification. All copies of the
New York Times ordered under
this plan innst be delivered where
the Times has not heretofore been
received. The offer is intended
solely for new subscriptions, and
