Ireland there are more troops than a year ago, the force consisting of 27,300 men, 3600 horses and 60 guns. Scotland, one large military district, has only 3900 men, 450 horses and four bold guns. There are but three silver dollars of the coinage of 1804 in existence. Two of these are accounted for; the third is somewhere in circulation about the country. The value of this missing dollar of 1804, as quoted in the last numismatic circulars, is $800. It is estimated that one-half of the entire wealth of agricultural Kansas is mortgaged to the industrial states, and even the older western states, Ohio. Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan and In diana, are mortgaged to the extent of from 20 to 33 per cent, of their farms and nearly all their railroads.

SCIENTIFIC SCRAP& An Ena-li'h pathologist thinks that cancers may be developed by arsenic cating. A new invention, called the "telanto. graph," has recently been exhibited in Paris. It is authoritatively stated that it can reproduce by telegraph any kind of document in the handwriting of the sender. A new method of welding metals has been invented by Nicolas von Bernardos of St. Petersburg, Russia. It is done by direct application of the electric arc between a pencil carbon for ene ter minal and the metal to be welded for the other. The possibility of infection from dis. ease germs escaping from jpospital win. dows is attracting some attention, and a special inquiry is recommended. Ios. pital ventilation might be so arranged that the foul air would be drawn through a furnace before mingling with the outer atmosphere.

A Washington correspondent has made an interesting mathematical esl cu:ation regarding the number of hands shaken by the presilent and Mrs. Cleve land during the last few months. The figures are startling. Since the 1st of last July Mrs. Cleveland has grasped fully 100,000 hands. The president has shaken nearly twice as many. "Mrs. Cleveland's hand," says the writer, "is longer, narrower and thinner than the president's. The nerve is even better and the grip firmer." A party of Boston capitalists who pur pose building up a city and summir re sort near Port Mulgrave, on the Straits of Can;o, Nova Scotia, have purchased five miles of land for $30 000 cash. They have also purchased a coal mine. As this port is the only certain winter port of Cape Breton, they hope to build up a large city.
