A correspondent says that iu 18T3 he was
returning from Salt Lake City to Boston.
In the sleeping ear two gentlemen were
awaiting the making up or their berths, and
he took a seat opposite and engaged one of
them in conversation a man who, from
his dross, seemed to be a returning Cali
fornia miner or a frontiersman. He wore
a blue underllannel in place of a white
uliirt, and a tie wit h a sailor's knot.
His intelligence greatly surprised me,
and I soon concluded that I had mistaken
A little later, when I had liecome ac
quainted with his traveling companion,
who proved to he General McCook, I aked
ldm with whom I had had the pleasure of
"General Sherman, of tho United States
army, sir," he replied.
In due time we reached Omaha, where
we were to make a short stay. General
Sherman went at onro to the newsstand
on one side of the station, and said to tho
boy in charge in rather a peremptory tone,
"Give me a sheet of letter paper."
I followed and asked for the latest news
paper, and tin n, turning to the hoy, in
quired if lie knew the gentleman who had
"No, 1 don't," said the hoy, "but he owes
me two cents for that sheet of paper, and
I'm going to get it before he goes out of
Meanwhilo the general had gone to the
telegraph oflice opposito tho newsstand,
presumably to send a message to Washing
ton. "Young man," said I, "that is General
"General Sherman!" and the boy looked
at tho tall man with all his eyes. "Gen
oral Shermanl" ho repeated. "Well, now,
ain't I glad I didn't ask him for them two
Undoubtedly ho received the money after
the general had attended to his dispatch,

Tho !Iytery Human Growth.
Investigations of recent years, chiefly
among scientists of Germany, France, Eng
land and our own country, have gone far
toward solving tho mystery of human
growth. First of nil, growth seems to bo
dependent upon tho law of equilibrium in
nature a law universal in extent and illus
trated in the tendencies of gases to diffuse,
of liquids to seek a common level, ajul ex
hibited in all chemical affinities and
changes. Much seems to lie dependent
upon tho nature of the chemical elements,
especially of the four principal ones which
make up the body substance the conser
vative character of carbon, tho expansive
tendencies of hydrogen, the explosive char
acter of nitrogen and tho equalizing char
acter of oxygen,
These four, in combination with each
other and pome ten other elements, are
thought to retain their properties tho same
ns when separate. The rapid permeability
of those substances of which the animal
tissues and membranes aro chiefly com
posed by crystalloids, in which form the
food is presented for assimilation. Is re
garded as an important factor iu nutrition
and growth. Now York Times.
When People I.lva.
It Is stated that about one-sixth of the
people of the country live less than 100 feet
above son level, namely, along tho imme
diate seaboard and in the swampy and al
luvial regions of the south, nnd that more
than thraa fourths live below 1,000 feet,
n hile below 5,000 feet aro found nearly 99
percent, of the inhabitants. At great alti
tudes there are found only the most tri
fling proportion. Washington Star.
TlieUsa of the Malls In Franklin's Tliue.
It seems very curious that Benjamin
Franklin, the first postmaster general of
tho United States, made record during
alavao years' service of only 885 valuable
packages sent through the mails. One
little book of his own make, shown In the
museum, served for such accounts during
that period. Washington Letter.

Why Disturb Hectprcciti P
In tho case of tho United States reci
procity is a practical and useful policy,
It means that through its operations we
nre enabled to opeu markets for our pro
ducts and manufactures that have hither
to been monopolized by other nations. Our
trade with South America is ridiculously
small when compared with that of Eng
land, or even Gerinnny. Reciprocity bids
fair to change theso conditions. Why
wantonly disturb its beneficent work?
