When Prince Henry of Prussia makes his In spection of Cramps' Shipyard durtog his visit to Philadelphia, next Monday, he will go aboard the Russia battleship Retvlzan, now building at the yards, and make a careful examination of the great vessel. This he will do by special re quest of the Cxar. It Is suggested here that the Prince's examination of the Retvlzan may be the means of Inducing his brother, the Em peror, to have a German battleship con structed in the United "States aaa sub stantial token of his admiration for American skill in navaj architecture, and In order to still farther cement the grow lng friendship between the United States and Germany. At the launching of the Emperor's yacht In Hew" York Prince Henry re ferred to the fact that it was the first occasion on which a President of the United States had been on board a Ger man naval essel. The President re plied that he hoped to be In the future the guest of Admiral Prince Henry on a German war ship, and for the Emperor to place an order with an American firm for a war vessel would perhaps give the President the opportunity. ' Should a German war vessel be built In this Country In the near future it is believed the Emperor would attend the launching. ' ' MAYSYILLE. TEE MARKETS.

"Tour company Is trying to establish an un fair rule, because It worKB only one way. You are right when you say that my statement cannot bind you, for In case of loss you can prove the value, but my statement would bind me, lor the court would say that I was 'estop ped by my declaration as to the value. "If a shipper should undervalue his shipment, thinking that thereby he would reduce the charges, he would have to stand by Ms statement, and your notice is calculated to make him do that very thing.

How many miles a man walks In hla lifetime depends naturally upon how; much he walks a day on the average, but the man who walks the least, cov ers a vast numner oi mues oeiore ue dies. Borne men walk two miles a day, aome four or five and some as many as ten. If a man walks two miles a day and Uvea to be thirty yeara old, he will cover 21,000 miles. At the same age a man who walks three miles a aay will have walked 82,850 'miles. Almost ev ery man walks between two nd three miles a day Just la going about the house, the office, the shop and in going to and from tha cars, etc. A man who walks five miles a day finds that at the age of thirty he has covered 54,750 miles and at the age ot sixty 100,500. From this should, strict ly ipeaklng, be subtracted the few. months or a year when he was a baby unable to walk, but the result would not be affected materially. - Now, the circumference of the earth at the equator la only 24,890 miles, so therefore a man who at the age of alx ty has averaged five miles a day alnce ho waa able to walk has walked enough miles to have encircled the earth four times and have a good many miles left over toward the fifth lap.
