THE THAMES TUNNEL.
The Thames tunnel is a small af
fair compared with the immense
borings which arc soon to connect
New York with New Jersey and
Brooklyn, yet eighteen years were
consumed in its construction. It,
passed through nearly ns many vicis
litudes as have been encountered by
the Hudson river tunnel, and the ac
tive labor involved was about nine
years. It cost $3,000,000 and was
a linancial failure from the begin
ning, the tolls being only $25,000 a
tear, hardly enough to keep the lin
ing in repair. Half a century ago
it was spoken of us a “stupendous
work.” Much foot passenger paid a
toll of a penny. The tube was
reached by means of cylindrical
shafts of ioo steps each. In 1850
the “fancy fair” was held in it, and
this under the Thames exhibition
attracted 60,000 persons in live days.
In 1865 the East London Railway
company bought the tunnel for sl,-
000,000 and is now runr.'pg fifty
trains a day through it.—}V\v York

Suggested Name For Sister Beat to
the Holy Terror.
William Gillette, the author-tictor
and playwright, is an enthusiastic
boatman. When he was a boy in
Hartford, Conn., when his father
was the founder of the suburb of
Glenwood, he spent almost all his
leisure constructing pad*?e boats on
the Farmington river. When Gil
lette got rich, he built a roomy house
boat called the Holy Terror. Cum
bersome as the craft was,she had her
own motive power, so that her own
er could move from one point to an
other at will without depending on
the exactions of a tugboat captain.
One Sunday Gillette stopped on
the Hudson, just below Grant’s
tomb, to take on some guests. When
he started away, the machinery of
his Holy Terror got awry, and the
houseboat ran amuck through a lot
of little catboats and rowboats an
chored along shore, tearing away
rigging, dories and everything in
sight. Gillette stopped to ascertain
the damage and make promises to
“ Say,” exclaimed one man who
rented boats, “if you are going to
build another thing like that I wish
you’d name her the Merry Hell.”

The Page's Pointed Question.
Senator Mallory of Florida, bald
as a doorknob, sat in the Democratic
cloakroom one morning. He called
for a page. A boy came in who had
a big bunch of hair standing
straight up from his forehead.
“Son,” said the senator, “why

When Willie Learned How the Flies
Brush Their Coats.
Willie, flushed and happy, had
just come in from the barn, where
he had been playing hide and seek.
“I guess my little boy needs to find
a brush,” said his mother, looking
up from her work, for there were
clinging to his pretty sailor suit bits
of dry grass and seeds from the
mows, and some were playing peek
aboo in the little fellow’s hair.
“Oh, mother, can’t I wait? I’m
just too tired now.”
“If flies had been playing hide
and seek, they wouldn’t allow a
speck of dust to stay on their heads.
They’d brush it off,” casually re
marked Aunt Nan.
“Flies!” exclaimed Willie incred
ulously. “Where’d they get their
brushes, I’d like to know ?”
“Oh, they have them and use
them,” laughed Aunt Nan.
“Hairbrushes ?” questioned Wil
lie, and his face took on a perplexed
“Yes, and with them they always
keep themselves very clean. Have
you never seen a fly rub his delicate
front legs over his head?”
“Lots of times,” replied Willie
“Well,” resumed Aunt Nan,
“there are a great many hairs on
the underside of a fly’s feet and
legs, and these form tiny hair
brushes. When any dust gets on a
fly’s head, he brushes it off at once,
and then he rubs his legs together,
as you have probably noticed. That
is so that no dust may cling to the

Willie. “I guess you needn’t think

ALU CHRONIC DISEASES CAN BE
CURED IP HIS ADVICE
“During the past year I have treated
in Macon and vicinity, many hundreds
of patients, suffering from chronic dis
eases of nearly every variety, and not
in a single instance have I failed to
efFect a cure where my advice has been
been followed to the end. This leads
me to believe nearly all chronic mala
dies can be cured. So well satisfied am
I of this fact, that I will give a written
guarantee of a positive cure to every
patient I treat, or, in case of a failure
I will forfeit the entire fee. To those
who are ailing and whose cases have
baffled others, this will be glad news,
so I would be pleased to see it publish
ed in your columns.
“The maladies which prevail in this
section, and which I am most often
called upon to treat, are catarrh and
catarrhal deafness, male and female
weakness, blood and skin diseases,
goiter, cancer, rupture and diseases of
the rectum. Also the opium habit.
Scores of representative citizens who
have been cured by me will bear evi
dence of this fact”

A PARISIAN MARVEL
Paris has anew marvel in a girl
dramatist, who, though only ten
years o.d, has composed several plays
of much precocity. She is Mile.
Champmoynat, and her literary
name is Carmen d’Assilva. The lit
tle one has been admitted to the So
ciety of Dramatic Authors and has
been complimented and encouraged
to persevere by M. Victorien Sardou.
The child herself states that her
brain is always working up dramatic
situations and incidents. She ob
serves everything that passes and
prefers large cities with their bus
tling crowds, which she studies, to
the quiet country, where everything
seems to her inert and dead. The
precocious infant also tells people
that she comprehends everything in
life thoroughly. She has, in fact,
learned to understand all the springs
of human action. Likely enough
she does, for she is a sad pessimist,
this ten-year-old. The world is
abominable, in her estimation, but
amusing. Carmen is now writing a
comedy on woman before and after
Long and Short Miles.
English speaking countries have
four different miles —the ordinary
mile of 5,280 feet and the geograph
ical mile of (1,085 l’ect, making a dif
ference of about one-seventh be
tween the two; then there are the
. Scotch mile of 5,928 feet and the
Irish mile of 6,720 feet—four vari
ous miles, every one of which is still
in use. Then almost every country
has its own standard mile. The
Romans had their mil passuum,
1,000 paces, which must have been
about 3,000 feet in length. The Ger
man mile today is 2-1,318 feet in
length, more than four and a half
times as long as ours. The Dutch,
Danish and Prussian mile is 18,449
feet, three and a half times as long
as ours, and the Swiss get more ex
ercise in walking one of their miles
than we get in walking five miles,
for their mile is 9,153 yards long.
