BIBLES FOR THE PEOPLE.
Work of the American Bible Society in
The American Bible Society is actively at
work in Savannah. During the first five
months of the year, or rather beginning
with last December, its local agent, Rev. J.
F. Brundage, visited 0.848 families in the
city, and placed altogether very nearly 000
Bibles in homes where there were none.
Of the j,OOO and more families visited.
1.700 were without the Bible, and the heads
of 352 families could not read even if they
had one. hi many of these homes though,
Bibles were, placed in the hands of the
children. During June, July and Au
gust no work was done, hut
on Sept. 1, it was resumed and a thorough
canvass of the city is now being made. Mr.
Brundage has personally canvassed the dis
tricts west of XVit 4, Broad street, east of
Eeast Broad a l * . pr.s tio iof the district
between Bay an . v '*'.*< Broad streets. He
has been most successful in his work so
far and he expects to canvass the entire city
during the next six months. His duties are
most arduous, but the results which he has
accomplished are an evidence of the faith
ful and efficient service be has rendered. The
•work is carried oti under the general
direction of the Slate .Superintendent of the
society. Rev. H. P. Myers, formerly of this
city. The general repository of * the so
ciety for Savannah is at the Young Men’s
Christian Association rooms.
Mr. Brundage. in his report for the past
foul months of the year gives in connection
with his December report the following

A large portion of the homes where the
father or mother could not read were of
course among the colored people. Wherever
the people are able to pay for a Bible it is
sold, but where they are not able, one is
placed by the society's agent. In connec
tion with his work of canvassing Rev.
Brundage will conduct a Bible reading at
Trinity church lecture room every
Thursday afternoon at 4 o’clock.
He is a firm believer in divine
healing and at every meeting thei-e will lie
a short reading bearing upon this subject.
The Bible Society is very thorough in its
work It has the indorsement of the churches
and it looks to them for support and en
couragement The Savannah Bible Society
is also expected to place an agent, in the
field to work in conjunction with the State
organization, and with their united efforts
the gospel will lie brought to the doors of
hundreds and thousands who otherwise

HOW THE LAMPS ARE MADE.
Some Things About the Incandescent
Light - The Carbon Threads
Since the introduction of the incandes
cent system of electric lighting in Savan
nah there has been a groat deal of inquiry
aboqt the mechanism of the lamp, what it
is and how it is made. The light emitted
from the lamp is from a thread of carbon
heated by the electric current until it glows
with an almost white heat.
A Morning News reporter visited the
Brush Company’s works on Indian street
last night, and watched the generation of
the current which lights the thousand lamps
all over the city. The little thread of car
bon, which many call a wire, inside the
glass globes, is made from some animal or
vegetable substance, such a-s cotton or linen
thread, silk, bamboo, hair, and sometimes
of celluloid. The thread is baked in an
oven, excluded from the air until
all volatile matter is excluded, and nothing
remains but a shinv black thread of char
coal or carbon. if the thread were heated
and exposed to tlic air it would burn up in
stantly. In older to fit it for a durable
lamp it is placed in a glass bulb and the air
pumped out; it is then sealed up hermeti
cally. In this state it can be used for a long
time without being consumed. The average
life of the lamjis used in Savannah is 800
The difference in lamps is very little, ex
cept in the preparation of the carbon thread
or “filament,” as it is called.
Every maker claims something superior
for his own lamps. The length of the fila
ment and its thickness is in projiortion to
the pressure and quantity of electricity
which it is designed to carry, and also the
candle power. If the current is to be of
high pressure the thread of carbon is made
longer, or, if the current pressure is lower
the thread is short. A low pressure cur
rent of large “quantity” possesses greater
economy, in heating effects, than one of
higher pressure and less quantity. But high
pressure is necessary to overcome the resis
tance to the flow of the current over the
wires or conductors. The majority of the
different systems of electric incandescent
lighting use a direct current from their dy
namos to the lamps.
THE WESTINGHOCBE SYSTEM.
In the YVestinghouse system, which is the
one adopted by the Brush Conqwiny, of
this city, the current is alternating, that
is, it is reversed in its direction very rap
idly. A high pressure and small quantity
current from the dynamo to the lines is
used in order to use smaller wires for con
ductors. At convenient points, for the ser
vice of lamps, they place upon their poles
induction coils or “converters,” as they are
called. The office of the converter is pecu
liar. The line current passes through one
coil of wire in the converter, and near that
coil, lut not connected with it in any way,
is another coil of wire in which is generated
a current by induction. The induced cur
rent is of low pressure and of large quanti
ty, just suited for the short distance and
low resistance between the converter and
the lamp. The current to the convert
ers is called the “primary,” and the one
from the converter to the lamps is called
“secondary.” The latter current is not ca
pable of giving any electric shock, as it is
30 DANGER OF LIGHTNING.
There is no danger of lightning ever
entering a building for the conductors ex
tend only a short distance to the converters.
The incandescent light is steady, bright,
and emits very little neat. It consumes no
oxygen, Thei-efore it is the most whole
some iight in the world. When the wires
are properly put into a building, they have
inserted into them, at the entrance and the
several branches, strip of lead or fusible
i-ompoaition, which will melt out or cut off
the flow of currents. The leads are called
“fuses,” and are so proportioned for the
size of wire and current, that they will melt
out before the wires are hot enough to
ignite anything. There is, therefore, no
danger of fire originating from the
wires of a current if the work is properly
THE COOL WAVE GONE

Over the Country.
There was a slight moderation in the
weather yesterday, the temperature rising
five degrees. The maximum was 74’ and
the minimum 55*. The temperature in all
the cotton district rose, the highest lieing in
the Galveston district, where the average
maximum was 82 , and the average mini

an average maximum of 72’, and an average
minimum of 44’. The cold wave is tepidly
moving out to sea, mid there will probably
be a decided rise in the teinparnture to-day.
There were heavy rains 111 the Galveston
district, 21 stations reporting an average
rainfall of ). 13 inches. The indications for
this district for to day are for rain also.
There is a storm in the west Gulf. The
barometer at Corpus Cliristi was only 29.88,
and the w ind was blowing at the 'rate of
twenty-eight miles an hour. There were no
indications of a cyclone, but simply of a

THE OBSERVANCE OF YUM KIPPUR
The Jewish Holiday, and How It Is
Kept- Business to be Suspended.
The Jewish holiday, Yum Kippur, will
begin this evening at o'clock, and all of
the Jewish stores will be closed then and
remain closed until Thursday morning.
Tliis is the day of atonement, and upon this
day God pronounce* sentence upon the peo
ple of Israel for sins committed during the
past year. The day is a fast day, and none
of the faithful will partake of food between
sunset this evening and the same hour to
raorrow. Yum Kippur is the great fast
day of the year, and its observance by the
Hebrew-, is rigid. There will lie special ser
vices in the synagogue, adapted in character
to the day. Aticordirvg to the Jewish calendar
this is the 10th day of the month Tishri.
During this month come ail the great feasts

The Wrong Party.
New York, Sept. 23. —Editor Savannah
Morning News: A few weeks ago I received
in my mail a letter from your city, appar
ently addressed to me. Upon opening it,
however, I found that it was for another
party bearing my name, and a closer in
spection of the envelope showed that the
initials diiTered slightly, 1 consulted our
city directory and made inquiries, but could
not find the owner I laid the letter aside,
ami it was forgotten in the rush of business.
A few days ago I opened another letter, and
discovered that it was from the same party,
to my unknown namesake.
There was no name signed to the letters,
so that I am unable to return them to the
writer, and from the tenor of the last letter
there is likely to be a rupture of friendship
if this matter is not attended to. 1 have
done all in my power to find the party to
whom they are addressed, and have failed.
If you could insert this letter in your paper
it may catch the eye of the writer, who will
recognize the name signed and thus claim
her stray property. V ery truly yours.

HOW MEN WILL DRESS.
THEIR UNDERWEAR, COATS, HATS
The Frock Coat in Favor Again—No
Decided Change For Evening Wear—
The Fall Style of Hats Different From
Last Season—Canes and Umbrellas.
From the New York Tribune.
Nominally Sept. 1 marks the introduction
of those changes in the fashioning and ma
terial of men's garments which pass under
the title of fall styles. In reality, however,
it is not until another month has passed that
youthful or would-be youthful Solomons ar
ray themselves in all their glory and tempt
the Indian summer sun in Fifth avenue or
the windows of clubs on that thoroughfare.
On the art of dressing many books have
been written, but no Teufelsdrfcch has yet
arisen who has satisfactorily solved the
enigma of “who sets the fashion.” Fifteen,
or even ten years ago, the young man
looked to Paris for his models. Nowadays
he yearns for London and its styles. But to
whom does the youthful Englishman look?
Not, as is often, but erroneously said, to the
Price of XVales, for the Prince would not lie
the perfect dresser he is if he did not him
self bow to the mysterious one. Fashion,
so far, at least, as * men are concerned, is
rather the combined wisdom and taste of
many master-minds. “Not each man, but
all men,” as Mr. Swinburne phrases it with
A young man was at the pains the other
day to find out in what direction this hidden
force will tend during the coming autumn.
Starting with the first principle, underwear,
he learned that the gorgeousness of hue
which lately marked the elaborate London
hosiery has been abandoned. The finest of
merino still prevails as the material, silk
drawers and shirts or “singlets,” as the Eng
lish salesmen now term them, hardly proving
so comfortable or so warm in the long run,
but the colors are more subdued, a fine pin
stripe of red on a white ground being the
latest pattern in these articles. Socks for
evening wear are, of course, still made of
silk ana they are still embroidered in quiet
patterns. Embroidery, too, reaches to the
shift front, thougli the plain front with three
studs is, perhaps, after all, the “best form”
for evening dress. The broad blue and pink
barred colored shirt has disappeared, it is
to be hoped forever, certainly until next
summer comes, for a colored shirt in winter
i* a thing to lie abhorred. Collars are to be
moderately high, turned down in front in
various degrees of formality or the reverse.
The cuff is still fastened with a link and
not with a solitaire, and the merest line of
it ought to project beyond the coat sleeve.
Neckties just imported are of rich dark
colored silks and satins, burns! with colored
stripes on a dark ground. They are tied in
a sailor’s knot, and the breastpin, though
not as omnipresent as formerly, is not yet
out of date. Only the smallest and plain
est, however, can bo fastened in the upper
corner of the knot.
Actors as a rule dress badly, off the stage,
at all events. They either dress too much
or too little. A marked exception to this
rule is Herbert Kelcey, the leading man of
the Lyceum theatre. He is probably the
best dressed man in New York, for no one
would accuse the Mr Wall who is so often
spoken of in connection witli the subject of
really dressing witli good taste. A day or
two after his return from England, Mr.
Kelcey walked up Broadway, on a chilly
afternoon, in a frock coat and tall silk hat.
The coat fitted as a frock coat should fit,
and was worn as one man in a hundred can
wear it It was neither exaggeratedly
smooth nor wrinkled. It is mentioned here
as drawing attention to the fact that the
frock coat has once more regained its as-
the afternoon wear, and the
cutawaynvill take its rightful place as an ar
tide of morning wear only before long. For
other morning clothes the tailors will use
this season, goods of a rough-looking sur
face in broken checks and stripes or mixed
colors. Coats and waistcoats will be cut a
trifle low in the nock, but the heart-shaped
opening is given over to the evil one in the
shape of the “ready-made” tailor. Trousers
are to beaswiileax ever, and cut straight
from the knee to the foot. The ridiculous at
tempt made to introduce n tailless dress coat,
resulted naturally in failure. It will be
long liefore any decided change in the dress
worn after nightfall is widely adopted. The
dress waistcoat is to be cut rather more V
shaped than formerly; also, it is to be
judged, oil account of the cheap tailor*.
Autumn overcoats will he in every shade of
twilled goods, and are single-breasted, and
rather longer than last year.
In hats there is a decided change. This
part of a man’s dices owes its style not to
individual fancy, but to a trade combina
tion. A man does not, as a rule, order his
hat to be fashioned in a [(articular way, but
meekly accepts his hatter's ruling and weai-s
what Tie dictate*. This year the autumn
hat will lie a trifle higher than its predeces
sor, decidedly more hell ha poo in the crown
and with a brim decidedly more rolled. The
low hat, tiie “billy-cock” or “derby” wiii be
of medium height, with a brim slia|>ed like
that of its silken brother. The sqimre-top
ped hat will be worn by comparatively few.
and owes its introdurtion to the efforts of
one well known hatter alone. Though va
rious shades of brown will be worn, black
will lie in the best taste.
In shoe* there will be practically no
change. The toe will lie pointed, hiit no
tendency to exaggeration is to tie noted.
For evening wear a plain patent-leather
without a toe-cap is correct, while for day
wear the same leather with a plain toe
piece is to be worn. All .shoes will be laced
instead of buttoned.
A not unimportant addition to ajnan's
outdoor toilet nowadays is the stick or um
brella. The former of these are large and
tipped with a small knob or two of silver,
while umbrellas are shown of thinnest of
proportion* and top[x-d with ingeniously

GENUINE TEXAS CAMELS.
Novel Exhibition to be Made at the
Texas State and Dallas Exposition.
From the Galvettnn Newt.
In order that the Texas State Fair and
Dallas Exposition may be complete in every
particular, the association has concluded to
bring from the West a number of Texas
camels, which they will place among the
products of Texas. It is not generally
known that there are camels, both wild anil
domestic, in Texas, but it is nevertheless a
fact. Texas is a great State, and has a
little of everything.
A reporter yesterday called upon Maj.
John Henry Brown in quest of information
in regard to the history of Texas camels.
Maj. Brown says that they were brought to
Texas by the Federal government in 1852
for the purpose of testing the feasibility of
using them in crossing the great American
desert and the dry region between here
and California Several Arabian canvass
ers came along with the camels for the
purpose of instructing the Americans in
their art of handling the animals. These
Arabs remained in the employ of the gov
nrnment for the space of two years, and
when they left it was believed that the
camels were a success as a means of travel
ing in the dry region, and it was also be
lieved the animals would retain their vigor
and health of their native country. The
government then proceeded to breed them
at Camp Verde, a military past in Kerr
county, and they multiplied and replen
ished with great rapidity. When the war
came on the camels of course fell into the
hands of the Southern Confederacy, which
had control of them until the
close of the struggle at which time
Maj. Brown says there were seventy
six camels at Camp Verde ranging
in age from 1 year upward. But all the
camels were not concentrated at Camp
Verde. They had scattered during the war,
and some of them were in use in Arizona,
while others had wandered Irom the settle
ments and gone wild. Very little attention
was given to the camels or to communica
tion by means of them with California dur
ing the war, and by the time the Federal
government got Texas reconstructed and
ready to resume the caravan business across
the plains, the railroads were solving the
problem for which the camels were being
bred, and the ships of the desert were heard
of no more as a factor in the commerce of
The propriety of running the camels at
Camp Verde into Mexico was dismissed by
some of the Texans who sought refuge in
that republic at the close of the war, but
the matter ended in discussion.
Maj. Brown says he had not kept run of
the camels of late yaars, but he is certain
that there are still quite a number of them,
both wild and tame.

Advice to Motnera.
Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Svrup should
always be used when children are cutting
teeth. It relieves the little suffer at once; it
produces natural, (juiet sleep by relieving
the child from pain and the little cherub
awakes as “bright as a button.”
It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allays all pain, re
lieves wind, regulates the bowels, and Is the
best known remedy for diarrhoea, whether
arising from teething or other causes. 25
cents a bottle.
