DHOITED TO THE THICK.
Attempt'to Swindle Negroes With
Canl Game Endetl in Arrests.
John Lee. a one-armed white man, was
arrested last night on a charge of at
tempting (o swindle two negroes in a
sleight-of-hand card trick.
The negroes, who are from the coun
try .were in the vicinity of the Plant
System depot, about to start for their
homes, when they were approaehey' by
two white men, one of whom was Lee.
They opened a conversation with the ne
groes, and evidently having sized them
up as soft marks, the man who accompa
nied Lee produced a pack of cards, and
after counting the cards over for the
benefit of the prospective "come-ons,"
offered to bet th.it there were only ftftj
one cards in the deck.
At the same time that he made the
offer he cleverly dropped one of the cards,
which was immediately picked up by Lee,
but not so cleverly as to escape the at
tention of one of the negroes, who later
at the barracks, where he was taken to
testify against the prisoner, stated that
"he had hand w’at dey do in big towns,
and had started to walk away soon as
he seed w'at de white men was doin'."
Anyway, the negroes refused to be caught
by so palpable a trick, and Mr. Butt inter,
who was in the nelghborhcO i, and saw
what was going on, telephoned for the
police. Lee was caught, but the other
man got out of the way.

that no settlement could he made except
upon the lines laid down in the contract

CHINESE GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES.
Significant to Tliotse Who l utler-
Ktaud the Lnn^iiage.
From the New York Sun.
We are reading just now of many Chi
nese distric s, towns and rlveis. Many of
these geographical iiames doubtless ap
pear repellant and unpronounceable to all
except a few p. rsons who are familiar
wiih them. But if we had a better ac
quaintance with these names and knew
their mraning they would be found 10 be
full of interest. They are often condensed
descriptions of the place or feature to
which they are applied. They are far
more instinct with life than many geo
graphical names in other countries. Sup
| pcse we had never heard ot Shanghai, for
j example, but know the meaning of the
two w_rds composing the name. We would
know at once that the “City Near the
Sea’ must apply to a seaport. Yun ho
nv ans “The River of Transportation, • and
we nuturally infer that the waterway thus
designated must be commercially import
ant. Yun ho, in fact, is ttie Chinese name
of the Grand canal which p ays so large
a part in the freight service of East
Hcwever many syllables there may be
in a Chinese place name it is composed
of as many words as there are syllables,
for all Chinese words are monosyllabic.
If W’e know the meaning of even one of
he wo-ds in a geographical name it helps
to convey a definite idea. The words Ho
and K.ang, for example, both mean
• liver,” and when w'e see them on a map
we know they refer to a river or si ream
Many cf the names of rivers are descrip
tive of them: Hoang ho. f r example,
mean “Yellow river;” Tsin kiang m ans
“Clear liver.” Observe how defin.te is
(he idea expVessed in the name of each
of the three livers which converge upon
Canton. One of them is the Sikiang, or
“West river.” another the Pe # kiang, or
“North river;” the third is the Tung
kiang, or “East river.” The names of
these rivers tells the direction from which
they come. They h !p to simplify the
study of the geography of that part of
China When they uni*e they form the
Chu kiang or ' Pearl r.ver.” The Chinese
named their larg st liter in the north th
Ht.ang ho because it cuts its bed through
yellow soil from which it derives its
cclor. The yellow flood it pours into the
s.a colors that part of the ocean yel.ow,
ard henM- the Ch nese call the sea iloang
hai. or Yellow sea.
“The Chinese unite the words in a name
so that.they form one word Just as we
write Newtown, Hartford or Deerfield.
Sometimes we unite the words in a Chi
nese name and sometimes we separate
them, but there is no reason for example,
why we should write Tlen-Tsin when ?
do not write Pe-Kln. Each of these names
|3 composed of two words. Pe means
'north' and Kin means 'thecapiial' or 'the
King's household,' and thus Pekin means
the northern capital. Tien means heaven
ly’ and Tsin means place,' and thus the
name of the largest city in Northeast
China means heavenly piace'—a name it
has borne for many centuries. When
Marco Polo visited the city in the thir
teenth century he tranalated its nemo
inlo Oiin Celeste."
.Many Chinese names we see In the news
papers and do nog even attempt to pro
nounce would give us as much informa
tion. if we could translate them, as a long
sentence might do. Hankow, for exam
ple, is the name of a very Imponant city
bn the Yang tse Kiang. There are only
six letters in the name, and ye< any Chi
nese boy would know from the two short
words composing it. that I! Is the name
of the town standing at *he "kow" or
mouth of a river named Han. The Han is
the greatest tributary of the Yang tse
Kiang and plays a most important pait
in the commercial life of that teeming
valley; and the city built on the spot
where the Han mingles its waters with
the Yang tse is Hankow, i. e., the town
at the mouth of the Han.
The word Yang meaps "ocean;" tse
means "son,” and the name Yang tse
Kiang which the Chinese applied agns
ago to their greatest river, shows that
they did not mean to depreciate its im
portance. Some writers say the early
Chinese believed their largest river con.
tributed more water to the making of the
ocean than any other stream in the world,
and so In the name of the liver they con
veyed (he idea that the ocean was Its son.
The name is often erroneously translated
the Dlu* river.
Pekin has not always been the capital
of the empire, but Nadktn. a city far to
the south, was long (he seat of govern
ment; and. as he name Pekin means
"northern capital," so the name Nankin
means "southern capital." "White river"
is the meaning of Pel Ho, near whose
mouth are the forts Just seized by the
In some books and maps we see the
words "fu" or “hien" added to the names
of many towns. The:* w : ords ire not a

nemo means that he official in charge
of the district resides there. It Is bet
ter to omit these merely political desig
nations. When we have more intimate
dealings with China and belter knowledge
of the people and their country, we shall
have uniformity in the spelling of China's
place names, and know what these names
mean; and wo shall see clearly that these

and descriptive facility, and that they are

THE MAM If ACT! HE OF SALT.
Conspicuous Natural Resource' of
tlie Stnte of Michignn.
From the Scientific American.
Conspicuous among the natural resources
of the state of Michigan are the forests
which cover a considerable extent of Its
surface and the large deposits of salt
which underlie a great portion of its
area. In the vicinity of Manistee, where
the "sail blocks" which form the subject
of the present article are located, this
deposit consists of a stratum of rock sail,
which is from twenty-five to thirty feet
in thickness, and lies some 2.000 feet be.
low the surface. Salt blocks 3re usually
built in connection with saw mill plants,
with a view to making use of the refuse
as fuel; and for this reason the city of
Manistee h.ts of late years become such
a large producer of salt that about half of
Ml this commodity manufactured In the
statd is made at that point.
Driving the Well.
As soon as the site of a well has been
selected, a cellar is excavated and plank
ed up and a derrick, usually about eighty
feet high, is erected, and the work of
driving commences. The first operation Is
to sink a section of 10-inch pipe, by means
of a sand pump, to a depth of about 400
feet, from which point the well is con
tinued by inserting an 8-inch pipe within
the 10-inch pipe and driving it dbwn to
the .rock formation, the 8-irtch pipe ex
tending from the rock up through the
10-inch pipe to the surface of the ground.
From the rock formation down the rock is
drilled without any pipe casing, except
through such portions as are lia
ble to Sait well 'No. 5 of
the Buckley & Douglas Company’s
i>iant at Manistee, which described In
the present article, is fairly typical of the
wells in this vicinity. The KMnch pipe
reaches to a depth of 40) feet, the 8-inch
pipe to a depth of 016 feet, where ihe rock
formation' is encountered. The bed of
rock salt, which is 30 feet in thickness,
reaches to a depth of 1.&85 feet, maKin? a
(otal depth of 2,015 feet. The yield pump
ed from tills well amounts to from 2.000 to
2,400 barrels of brine in twenty-four horn*
The same engine, shaft and walking be im
used in putting down the wells of ilns
company were formerly utilized lo do th"
pumping, which was accomplished by
sucker rods extending down the cTsi ig to
ihe pump cylinder in the well ppe Of
In*? years the air-lift system, ha* been
adopted with auch good results that 100
per c >: t. more brine is now force! fivm
. well by air than could be raised by the
old method. As ihe brine is pumped from
the well it is delivered to the storage cis
ter I*. from which it fall® by gravity to
(he settlers, ar.d from the settlers to the
rraineis. In the settlers it is heated to
i temperature of about 170 degrees F
Upon being allowed to sool the. gypsum,
which, if it were not removed, would form
a ccating on the steam pipes in the
grainers, is precipitated, and as soon ns
precipitation is completed the brine is
drawn to a long box running across the
head enf*s of the gralners as required.
The latter are long, shallow tanks, near
ihe bottom of which, and extending
throughout their full length, is a series of
steam pipes. The brine being admitted
to the grainers, the eieam Is turned on,
ihe liquor soon acquires a high tempera
ture and rapid evaporation takes place.
To assist the precipitation of grains of
salt the surface of the brine is agitated
at frequent intervals by means of a se
ries of paddies, which art? operated by a
lever at the end of the grainer. The sale
accumulates at the bottom, until in the
course of twenty-four hours there will he
a layer from 6 to 8 inches deep. The sal
is- lifted from the grainer by means of
long-handled, perforated shovels, and is
deposited on the runway. As soon 9s It
is thoroughly drained it is shoveled into
cars, run out over the Storage bin and
The Vacuiun-I'an Proven®.
Tart of the salt manufactured in this
plant is made by the vacuum-pan process,
for which purpose two pans are In use.
One of the pans is run during the day and
the other during the night, each pan mak
ing in a twelve-hour run from 600 to 700
barrels of salt, the combined production
being from 1,200 o 1,400 barrels a day.
In the manufacture of salt it is a rec
ognized necessity that a large quanttly
must be kept in storage, and for this
purpose the salt is dumped into vast
storerooms which measure from 200 to 300
fee< in length, and the same In width;
the amount in store frequently aggregat
ed 400,000 barrels. As these rooms are
from sixteen to twenty feet deep, the salt
becomes tightly packed, and has o be
worked loose by packers with picks
shovels, grub hoes, etc., who proceed to
quarry, break up and pack the salt into
barrels. With the coarser grades of salt
made in the grainers this is not a diffi
cult matter, bm the finer grained, vac
uum-pan salt be-’omes compact and very
hard, and the packer soon finds himselr
confronted by a wall of salt twenty feet
in bight and as whita, if not as hard, as
marble. To undermine and bring down
this mass of salt is a dangerous operation,
and involves long delays; and to over
come these difficulties the companies
have used a compressed-air driven spiral
auger, which is ten Inches in dinmeer
and provided with a double-spoon point
The auger is mounted on a truck and the
back end of the shaft is attached to it
three-horse power Boyer rotary air-drill
machine. A row of holes is driven into
the salt at a hight of ten inches from
the floor for a distance of six feet Into
the mass, the holes being drilled as close
ly together os possible. After an inter
val of one to three hours a fall of salt
takes place, a mass equal to 400 or 500
barrels of salt being brought down in each
section. The saving of labor by the use
of the compressed-air drill Is shown by
the fact that sufficient salt can be un
dermined and caved In this manner in
one-half day to keep the packers at frork
for two or three days following.

Skin Diseases jjSk
When the excretory organs fail to carry oIT the waste material from the system, there is an abnor
mal accumulation of effete matter which poisons and clogs the blood, and it becomes sour and acid. •HUjlfcjJX*”
This poison is carried through the general circulation to all parts of the body, and upon reaching
the skin surface there is a redness and eruption, and by certain peculiarities we recognize Eczema, \\
letter,^Acne, Salt Rheum, Psoriasis, Erysipelas and many other skin troubles, more or less severe. VV_|
While the skin is the seat of irritation, the real disease is in the blood. Medicated lotions and NJm
powders may Mlav the itching and burning, but never cure, no matter how long and faithfully *
continued, and the condition is often aggravated and skin permanently injured by their use.
Tfie disease Is more titan shin deep; me entire circulation Is poisoned.
The many preparations of arsenic, inercuicv, potash, etc , not only do not cure skin diseases, but soon ruin Jthe digestion
and break down the constitution.
S. S. S., nature’s own remedy, made of roots, herbs and barks, of great purifying and tonical properties, quickly and
effectually cures blood and skin troubles, because it goes direct to the root of the disease and stimulates and restores normal,
healthy action to the different organs, cleanses anil enriches the blood, and thus relieves the s\ stem of all poisonous secretions.
S. S. b. cures permanently because it leaves none of the original poison to referment in tin* blood and cause a fresh attack.
Healthy blood is necessary to preserve that clear, smooth skin and beautiful com*
plexion so much desired by all. S. S. S. can be relied upon with certainty to keep
the blood in perfect order. It has been curing blood ajid skin diseases for half a cen
tury ; no other medicine can show such a record.
