Too horso fell liko a log at tho re

to look back at his victim tho trooper
snatched up tho accoutrements and
hurried on after his companions. No

about in a circle, and blow a noto of
alarm from his bleeding nostrils.

Tho stiiko of Iho street car men led
to a riot about 0 o'clock last Thursday
evening. Many heads wcro broken
and ono man was fatally injured. Tlio
row was begun by a crowd of strikers,
who hail gathered in the neighbor
hood of Seventh and Pino streets. A
car on tho Union Depot line, filled
with pa9sciigeis, got stuck on an up
giado with ten cars behind it. A
great crowd of tho idlo men at ouco
gathered about tho car, nnd urged the
driver, rat bullivan, yto (abandon his
post. Ho paid no atttention to them,
but mado desperate efforts to move his
mules along. Tho strikers began
shouting : "Throw him off.'1 Tho
suggestion was acted upon. Two men
jumped on tho platform and throw
Sullivan off beforo tho wheels, and ho
was run over. At tho samo timo other
strikers seized tlio mules, whUo others
cut tho traces, and tho animals were
sent off on a gallop. ISv this timo the
passengers had got out of tho car, and
tho strikers gave it a running start and
Kent it living down tho grade.
They had chosen their timo when
thero wcro only two policemen nbout,
and thoy had things all their own way
In ten minutes httccn cars had 'jecn
seized, tlio mules detached and driven
off, and tho cars set whirling down the
hill, each to telescopo with tho ono
sent beforo, until thti wliolo fifteen
wcro pilled up in a heap of ruins. Tho

and fought gallantly to rescuo thel
companions who wero in tho cliithc

minutes. Tho polioo depended solely
on their muscle and their clubs. Tho

Aa historicfil facts nro growing moro
interesting each year concerning tlio
lirimo movers of tlio crcat Bowlnc ma
chine industry, I wish to givo you what
x Know about tlio king ot tlio sowing
mnohlno business, I. M. Singer. It is
said that Ettas llowo nover mailo a
machine that would row perfectly,
but that Mr. Singer did. All authori
ties givo Howo credit for tho invon
tlon, and tho country blacksmith did
well toward that end, no doubt) but he
got his idea fiom n defective machino
mado by 'Walter Hunt, of Now York,
in 1832. Hunt invented tho paper
collar nlso. llo demonstrated tho fact
that n machine could tako a stitch, but
ho could go no farther, and Howo pat
ented tho model and got an offer from
a Loudon firm of comet makers, who
gave him two years in which to perfect
Ii'h machino and adatl it to their busl
ncsn. They fitted up a machino shop
nnd paid him for his time, but it wns a
tnlltirc, nnd ho returned to America
diconsolato. Tho problem was solved
About forty years aro a man named
Kogun owned a wood o.irving establish
ment on Fifth Avenue, this city (Pitts
burg). Among his workmen was I.
M. Singer, who was an export in mak
ing wooden letters for signs. Many
of theso old letters aro still to bo
found in tho rubbish of Pittsburg gar.
rets. Mr. Sinccr in thoso days was
'hard up" in tho fullest sense of that
term, and was somewhat of a lioliem-
in habits and lasto. Ho left this
iky and tramped to Now York, whero
ho obtained work in a similar establish
ment, his now employer being engaged
perfecting a machine for sawing out
letters a soit of scroll saws at any
ralo Mr. Singer helped him to com
plcto it. Tlio inventor went to Mr.
Clark, a noted lawyer on patents, in
order to gi-t his scroll saw patented.
iio tooK jur. Sanger along to better ex
plain to tho lawyer tho working speci
fications aud plans of the scroll Baw
Whilst thero Mr. Olark snoku inci
dentally of tho failure of Elias Howo
to perfect, his sewinir mnchino in Lon
don. Singer listened attentively, and.
t is said, asked many questions con
cerning tho difficulty.
"ISy tieorge, exclaimed binijer, "1
can tnako that thing work."
"Ultra is a tortuuo tor you if you
do," said Mr. Clark.
"I can do it. 1 havo the idea now,
enthusiastically eoutinucd Singer.
then it is recoided how lie looked
lown at his shout, A'itli tho soles loose
and his clothes in tatters and ra"4. Ho
wilted (so to speak) and exclaimed: "I
am talking wild; I haven't money
enough to buy a screw."
'1 will tell you what I will do.
said Clark. "I will tit you up a shop
in tho loft of my stable, furnish you
wi.h everything you need to work with
and live upon, and givo you two
months to makuit go. If you are suc
cessful I will get all necessary patents,
and tako halt ot my investment.
"It s a go, said Singer.
Inside oi a month he had his ma
chino working, using tho eye-pointed
needle and shuttle invented by Hunt,
but with an addition it mado a contin
uous stitch. Thero was ono defeel,
ion-over. His machine failed to draw
up the stitches and left each ono with
loop on both sides of tho fabric.
Upon this ho worked night and day
until tho last day of his timo came.
Ho worked at it until noon and thon
tarted for his dinner. A thought
struck him, and back through tho
streets ho started on a run for his shop.
Ho sic.ed a little piece of wire, cave it
several bends and inserted it in tlio
machine. This was the little "spiral"
called a "laku up," which to-day is
found in otic form or another in every
machino. It was a suceoss I
I!y tho timo Klias Howe got back
from England he found three machines
n Ameiica Hint would sew; nil were
i.ncd on his patent tho Singer, the
Wheeler & Wilson and iho Grovcr &
Haker. Ho found that Singer had sold
1000 machines. Ho brought suit and
succeeded in getting iudgmcnt for
80,000 royalty on those sold, and fur
ther established a royalty ot 20 on
each machino sold by any of the three
After this Howo got a man named
Taylor to work on a machine, and he
finally succeeded in inventing an en
tirely new one, which took Howe's
name. About this tunc rumors reached
tho other firms that models mado by
lliiot and antedating Howes wero in
existence, and they seemed ono from
Baltimore. 1 hoy held a consultation
and sent for Howe, nnd showed him
tho model, nnd their proofs that Hunt
invented it long beforo his patent was
applied for. Howo was broken up
badly and made n clean breast of it.
llowo left tho ollico and happened to
meet his lawyer on the street. To him
ho confided tho whole matter. "I w

"Now, gentlemen," ho said, address

"you nro simply killing the gooso that
lays tho golden egg. You lot this
thing get known and icfuso to pay Mr,
Howo his royalty and you will hayo to
sell your machino at $25 instead of
SILT). Inside, of a year there will bo
a hundred sowing machines in tho mar
ket, all of them using tho patent you
now hold. ' Thoy saw tho point. A
compromise, was effected, by which
Elias Howo continued to get a royalty
of 2 on each machino instead of 820.

famous "combination" which mado
millioi's upon millions of dollars, and
furnished much cause for denunciation
on tho part of many will-meaning peo

that system enters into the walk. A
slow, desultory sore of walk is of no
earthly line: it simiily tires ono with
out any beneficial result. Tho walking
should bo brisk, with the head up ami
Iho chest thrown forward. Tho
breathing should be regular and as freo
as tho swing of tho limbs. Tho dis
