Mayor Keary Is Neutral on Proposition of License Increase
HIS WORSHIP VOTES
TO FULFILL HIS DUTY
Explains That He Simply Wanted to Have Question of
Higher License Passed on to Council to Give Aldermen a Chance to Act���Two Hotelmen Say Increase
Will Be Fatal to Them.
There  is  much discussion  on    the
., ���  .ner the recent  action of the
licence commissioners, rgardlng  their
i roposal to raise the licences of the
saloons and hotels of the city. Man)
think lhal the action of the members I
uiu. voted In favor of the proposition
in raise the licences was rather    too
ind  Ma: oi   Keary  when Been todaj spoke uf  some length In defence
. proposition in so far as he wus
personally    concerned,      He      said:
"Should lhe proposed licence Increase
go mt" i ffecl ii  would mean a sub-
al   Increase   to   tho  city   funds.
under t lie- circumstances   1 feel
thai the council should have the prlv-
.   ���    : discussing the measure. I be
chairman of the board, wns ob-
.,:, ) to vote one way or the oilier,
owing to ilie deadlock. Hud 1 voted
: the resolution li would have
killed, and the council would not
have had the opportunity of dealing
wiih tht proposition, while on the
other hand bj voting for the measure

expresi   myself neither for nor

in voting as 1 did. being
tht  im asure before the coun-
 i  lh��i they may have the
privUegi  ol acting to suii themselves
lon seems to be thai in,
u i did that 1 favored the in-,
(lease, when us u matter of fact I
will probably have nothing to say
should it  come before the council.
Nothing  Else  to  Do.
' Before placing the question before
"the meeting I asked Commissioner
Venables If he would rote for even
the slightest Increase at a future date
ahould the resolution be bud on the
tabic- as lie suggested, and ln reply
lie   remarked,   'Not    a   penny.'   Seeing
thai even if the resolution was laid
aside for a lime that bis action would
remain ihe same, I bud no other
choice, mid accordingly J pul the
question In order that it might be dis-
posed of as speedily us possible. This
talk about attempting to railroad the
affair   i.s   ridiculous,   but   nevertheless
I  think  an explanation of the   true
stale of affairs would not be out of
place."
Contradicts   Columbian.
Tbe Hiayoi referring to the statement contained In tbe Columbian to
the effect thai the board did not have
the power to cancel or suspend licences, quoted advices from the city
solicitor to the effect that the board
under authority ocntatned in sections
189 and 200 of the Municipal clauses
act. c;in cancel or suspend licences at
any time for cause. Thr clause strict-
Ij speaking states that, "The board
may revoke or suspend licences, for
any period within lis discretion.' '
This legal opinion wns rendered
some time age   at which time it was
charged  thai  such    action was    not
within the jurisdiction of the board.
Fatal  to Some.
Ii is nol likely that the resolution
passed bj the commissioners will be
presented to the city council at the
nexi meeting, us it is such a long period before the clause could go Into ef-
fed even if passed by the council.
Nevertheless the measure bits caused
considerable stir on the Btreet, particularly among the liquor dealers,
two of whom have been heard to de-
clare thai tbey will be driven out of
business al the end of the year, by
nie excessive fee.

WARNS VOLUNTEERS
Capt. Johnston Says Men Who Neglect Drill in Future
Will Be Summoned to Police Court.
The members of the local companies of the D. C.
0. R. who have not been regular in their attendance
on drill nights recently are to be rounded up, and unpleasant consequences are promised those who fail to
take their military duties more seriously in future.
At the close (if the regular weekly drill last night
Capt. Johnston, in an address to the few who were
present, remarked upon the lamentable lack of interest shown, and announced that unless the delinquents
were more prompt in future the same action as had
recently been taken in Vancouver would be taken
here in order to compel a better attendance.
The Vancouver action referred to was the summoning of a private to the police court on a charge of
neglect to attend drill. The accused admitted his
guilt, pleading that his working hours did not allow
him time for military exercises. The magistrate
read him a severe lecture, and allowed him to go
without punishment on the promise that he would in
future find time for drill.
Capt. Johnston announced that drill would be
held on Tuesday and Thursday of each week till April
23, when inspection will take place, and that a note
to this effect will be sent to each volunteer, so that
there will be no excuse for non-attendance.

endary Magistrate Pittendrigh yesterday. The case was decidedly interesting from many points, and attracted   u   large  number  of  interested

We  hud  some  notes n  little while
ago on the methods which Rome authors have ndupti'd for the advertisement of tueir hooks, a correspondent
sends us an example of this sort of
thine wblch is the better worth quot-
Ini,' because we have never seen lt
quoted In (his connection before. It la
taken from a life of Mnu- de Crudner,
whose novel "Valerie" appeared short.
ly after Mine, de Steel's "Delphlne."
"Vou know quite well." the author
wrote to a friend, "that neither talent
nor genius nor the excellence of one's
Intentions Is sufficient to insure a
success. Everything demands some
charlatanism." And the biographer,
proceeds to tell us how Bhe translated
I, t 'trine Into u :l lou
During several days, he writes. Bhe
made lie- round "7 the fashionable
shops Incognito, asking sometimes toi
shawls, sometimes for hats, feathers,
wreaths or ribbons, all "u la Valerie."
When (hey saw this beautiful an I elegant stranger step oul of her carriage
wilh'nn air of assurance and ask foi
fancy articles which she invented on
the spur of the moment the shopkeepers were seized with a polite desire
lo satisfy In-r by any means In their
power. Moreover, the lady would soon
pretend to recognize the article she had
asked for. And If the unfortunate
shopgirls, taken aback by such unusual demands, looked puzzled Mine,
de   Krudner   would   smile   graciously
ami pity tin-Hi for their Ignorance of
the new novel, thus turning (hem all
Into eager readers of "Valerie." Then,
laden with purchases, she would drive
off to another shop, pretending to
search for that whieh existed only in
her Imagination. Thanks to these ma
neuvers. she succeeded in exciting
such ardent competition in houor of
her heroine that for a week at least
the shops sold everything "a la Valerie." Her own friends, the Innocent
accomplices ln her stratagem, also visit
ed shops on her recommendation, thus
carrying the fame of her hook through

HUNTING VIOLINS.
TarUlo "Win. Found Demi Surrounded
I,,    Valuable   I n.l ruiuentft.
Violin inukers uow und again come
upon pieces of wood of phenomenal
resonance and heuuty, and when they
do we may be sure they give special
care to tlie making and finishing of the
Instrument formed of the wood. Strad-
Ivarius, ut any rute, did. In 171G he
hud a piece of luck In this particular,
and hla luck weut Into an Instrument
with which lie fell so much In love that
he absolutely refused to sell It or allow
lt to be played upon by any hands but
his own. He kept It locked up. and
when he died at tlie advanced age of
ninety-three he bequeathed It to his
sous. By and by nn enthusiastic collector named Salabue got on the scent
of this Instrument, and about the year
17(10 he acquired lt���at what tlgure is
not known���from one of the great
man's sons.
Salabue cherished it until his death,
about 1827, and then a strange character appears on the scene as purchaser.
This was an eccentric old fellow named
I.ulgi Tarlslo, who, abandoning bis
trade as carpenter, bad started collect-
lug old violins und was now searching
In every nook and comer of Italy for
tlie treasures of Cremona. lie could
neither read nor write, this enthusiastic collector, but he could tell a valuable fiddle the moment he saw lt, and
he estimated the worth of tlie Salabue
"Strad" so well that after he bud ac-
. quired it he kept It to himself with all
the loving care that Its maker had already shown for It. Tarlslo lived entirely alone In a wretched garret in
Milan, and one day in the year 187>-i his
neighbors found hlm lying dead among
a confused heap of Cremonas. The old
man hud amassed a collection of some
2.W Instruments, the result of a thirty
years' "hunt," and, although he hnd
started life n penniless carpenter, he
died worth nbout ��12,W0.���Cornhlll.
Arctic  Monqnltoeft.
The presence of mosquitoes In myriads within the bare, uninhabited arctic circle ls surely In some degree a
mystery. Thc mosquito Is a bloodsucker, but in these unvisited plains
he Is for the most pnrt, nnd of strict
necessity, n vegetarian. A few birds
excepted (and the birds nre furnished
with Impervious feathers), there ls no
local life whatever. The Lapp in summer drives his reindeer to the sea, and
no native crosses tbe fjeld If be enn
help it. Yet In this region, "seemingly
the most unsuitable for its effective
working," the mosquito flourishes, "a
primeval and enduring curse, Inexplicably developed to its utmost,-'���London Chronicle.

TWO ALPHABET LETTERS.
*}" and "W Comparatively Recent
Additions  io   the  I.I.I.
It Is n fact, not so well known but
that It may be said to he curious, that
the letters J and w are modern additions to our alphabet. The letter J
only came lutj general use during tbe
time of the commonwealth, say be-
tween 1649 and 165S From 1030 to
1640 its use is exceedingly rare, and I
nave never yet Been a hook printed
prior to i'i7,2 In which it appeared.
In the century Immediately preceding
de- seventeenth ii became the fashion
to tail the last i when Roman numerals
were used, as In this example, viij for
8 or xij in place of 12. This fashion
still lingers, bul only In physicians'
prescriptions, l believe. Where the
French use j it has the power of a as
we use it in tbe word "vision." What
nation was the flrsl to use it as a new
letter Is an Interesting bul perhnps unanswerable query.
In a like manner the printers and
language makers of the latter part ef
the sixteenth century began to recognize the fact that (In re was a sound le
spoken English which was without u
representative iu Mi.' shape of an alphabetical sign or character, as In thc
first sound iii the word "wet."
Trior to that time it had always beeu
spelled as "vet," Ihe v having the long
sound of n or of two n's together. In
order t" convey an idea of the new
sound they began to spell such words
US "Wet," ���'weather.'' "Web." etc., with
two u's, und as the u Of that date
was a typical v the three words above
looked kike this: "Wet," "weather."
"web."
After awhile the typefounders recognized the fail that the double U had
come to stay, so they joined the two
u's together and made the character
now so well known as w. I have one
book in Which three forms of the w
are given. The first is an old double
V (vv); tbe next Is one in which the
lasi stroke of the first v crosses tbe
first stroke of the second, and the
third is the common W we use today,

GREAT VOYAGERS.
Aa a (lenernl Rule, They 1 an,,- From
the Smaller Coautrle*.
Portugal Is a small country, with a
laud area one-third less than the state
of New York, but it has turned out In
Its time celebrated navigators, Cabral
and Ha Souzn among them.
It Is a somewhat peculiar circumstance In the history of ocean navigation that tlie chief navigators of Europe have usuully been natives of
minor kingdoms and without the advantages which would naturally accrue
to a representative of one of the larger
governments,
Christopher Columbus, as every
schoolboy kuows. was a native of
Genoa at the time when the Italian
peninsula was subdivided among numerous petty governments. John
Cabot was a Venetian, who sailed in
the service of England, as Columbus
hud sailed in the service of Spain.
Amerigo Vespucci was a Florentine,
who sailed originally in the service of
Spain unci afterward transferred himself to the Portuguese service and
then weut back to the Spanish service
for n second time.
Vitus Bering, after whom Bering
strait was called, was a Pane by
birth, who served under the naval
flag of ltussla. Magellan, utter whom
Magellan strait was named, was a native of Alemtejo, in I'ortugul, and was
the first to complete thc circumnavigation of the globe, in 1622.
Yerazzani was a Florentine, whose
voyages of discovery were undertaken
under the protection of thc flag of
France. Hendrlk Hudson was an
Englishman, aud It seems surprising to
many persons in this day familiar with
the pre-eminence of England as a maritime nation that he should have beeu
lu the service of the government of
Holland when he discovered Manhattan Island.

Should a Horse be Clipped ?
Clipping in the early spring is recommended by leading veterinaries. Clipping improves the health of a horse,
makes him feel better, work better and increases his value.

clipper, luii does 100 times the work. We also keep in

SLOW  CONCERT.
Large Audience Held for a Long Time
at the Opera  House.
The concerl In aid of the local
branch of the Antl-Tuberculosls bo
clety was . ��� ���' n'l' ; : 1 ��� evening bj
an audience so large In number that
ii filled tin- opera house. The programme was long, much too long when
the several responses to half-hearted
encores were taken Into consideration.
Thre were many popular entertainers on the bill, bul somehow there
was a lack of spirit all through, and
tii" large orchestra was sadly unequal
to its duty of enlivening tilings. The
musicians showed little sympathj
with each other, and were all apparently Indifferent.
During the course of the evening
Dr. Proctor delivered a short address
showing the necessity for the existence of the society, and asking his
bearers to be generous In their contributions towards it. He thanked the
management of tho entertainment for
the hard work that had been done iu
arranging the programme and securing such a largo attendance,

COSTS TOO MUCH TO BUILD.
Lumber Prices Are Prohibitive in Colfax  County,  Wash.
Colfax. Wash., April 5.���The people
Of Ibis country are beginning to
awaken to the fact that they are in
the grip of one of the strongest combines yet formed���ihe lumber combine. A large number of residences
had been planned by the farmers aud
by citizens of Colfax for the coining
spring and summi r, bul within the
past few weeks lumber has shot upwards in leaps and bounds so thai a
large per cent of the intending builders have concluded to put off building for the present. The price on
rough lumber has been raised from
$1 to $5 per thousand, and on finished
lumber from 30 to 10 per cent of the
former prices.
Marion linker. Who recenlly bought
a house and lot in Colfax, had ordered the stone for a foundation and
engaged men to move ihe old residence to make roonl for the new, but
when (he raise in lumber came he decided to use the old house a while
longer. D. C Woodward, cashier of
lhe Colfax National Hank, had also
made all arrangements to erect a new
building, but the sudden raise in
lumber put 11 stop to his plans.
A local contractor, when asked as
to the effect it Is having on the
buildings proposed, said that quite a
large per cent of contracts have
been countermanded because of these
conditions.
A THIMBLE OF GOLD
iT IS MADE OF METAL ALLOYED DOWN
TO  FOURTEEN  CARATS.
The Proceaa uf .Haniifartorr, From
lli��- IiiKulfi of Pare <.,,ld I r..h From
Ilie     -01 luri-icu r,      to     the     FluUhrd

Out of whatever part of the earth lt
Biiiy originally have been dug, the gold
from whieh thimbles arc made lu Philadelphia was bought at the United
States subtreasury lu the city lu the.
form of snug little ingots, brick shaped
and about two and a half inches long,
uu Inch and a quarter wide aud about
au Inch thick.
These little Ingots would be of a convenient size for paperweights. But
tbey would be rather heavy for such
use aud probably too expensive for
most people, for each one contains, of
pure gold, _4 carats fine, metal of tlie
\ulue of about $i!00.
Cold of this fineness would be much
too soft for thimbles, and It Is alloyed
down to 14 carats, ln which condition It ls rolled Into sheets of suitable
thickness. In the first process of manufacture a sheet of this gold is run
into a machine which cuts out of lt a
disk In size sufficient to form a thimble, the same machine stamping tills
disk also into the form of 11 straight
sided capsule with irregular edges.
Then the thimble blank goes into another machine, lu which a die stamps lt
into Its conical shape, out of this machine it goes Into an annealing furnace for tempering and from that luto
au acid bath for cleaning and the removal of th" tire coating.
Then the thimble is put into a lathe
to be turned down to its litial shape
and dimensions. It Is dull colored
whe.i i; goes Into the lathe, but at lbe
first touch of the keen edged cutting
tool It shows a glistening narrow band
of bright gold surface, which is widened In a moment to cove" the whole
length of the thimble ns the skillful
worker shifts the tool along.
With repeated applii atlon of the tool
the operator brings the crown of the
thimble Into its perfect form and cuts
down along the thimble's sides to bring
the walls of the thimble to the requisite thickness, and he defines aud finishes the smooth baud that runs around
the lower part of tbe thimble and
brings into relief the rounded rim (hat
encircles the thimble at iis opening at
once to give It a finishing ornamental
grace there and to stiffen it. Tin' glistening little gold shavings that he cuts
off iu these various operations all fall
Into a canvas trough suspended between bim and the bench upon which
stands the lathe.
With that last touch to Its rim In this
stage of making the former has grown (
marvelously more thimble-like in ap-;
pearance, but somehow it still lacks the
breath, so to speak, of thimble life; It
lacks yet the familiar Indentations in
Its surface that serve to support the
needle and to hold lt In place. These
tlie thimble maker now proceeds to
make, nnd tlie making of these ls nice
work indeed.
It is done with a tool called a kuurle.
There is au end knurle and a side
knurle. Au end knurle is simply a handle having set In It a tiny, thin revolving wheel of steel, upon whose periphery Is a continuous encircling row of I
little bosses or knobs corresponding In
size to tbe indentations to be made.
The side knurle has In place of such a
wheel a little steel cylinder of a length
sufficient to cover that section of the
thimble that Is to be Indented on Its
sides, this cylinder having knobs all
over Its surface, as the end knurle
wheel bas around Its edges, and turning, like the wheel, on Its axis.
The thimble ln the lathe ls turning
witli 2,7)00 revolutions a minute, and lt
seems as though the application to Its
surface of any sort of t ml with protuberances on it must leave there only .
a jangled and mixed up lot of Irregular
marks. But now with tlie cud knurle
the thimble maker makes an indentation ln the center of the top of the thimble, and then he proceeds rapidly and
with perfect certainty with the eud
knurle to describe around that ceuter
concentric rings of indentations, with
tlie Indentations all perfectly made aud
the rings all perfectly spaced, from the
center to the circumference of the top.
You may see him do this, but you
can't tell how be ls able to do It. Aud
then with the side knurle he makes the
Indentations in the sides of the thimble, making there as well, as he deftly
presses the tool against It. Indentations
that run absolutely uniform and true
and that eud at their lower edge in a
perfectly true encircling line.
It i.s astonishing ami a pleasant tiling
to see how it develops and comes to
Itself witli the making of those familiar Indentations, and now there remains to be done to it only the polishing Inside and out and you have the
finished gold thimble.���Philadelphia

Ai a meeting ot the board of man-

last night, it was decided to increase
ihe percentages now charged ihe lacrosse teams for the use of the ground.
The old percentage was 70 to lhe

The principal of her father's estate, or'
her portion of it, amounts to more

is $124,000. After hearing testimony,
the court appointed the Chard Trust

Startling revelations were made as

the testimony of four physicians, ls

stroke of apoplexy she suffered three
years  ago.
One doctor said that she behaved
in a silly manner, "like a girl of 16,"
in the presence of all men whom she
called her beaux. She is now living
ai   the Holland  House.

London, April 6.���There are unmistakable signs at Craig-y-Nos (Rocks ot
Night) the Welsh home of Baroness
Cederstrom, somewhat better known
as Adelina Paul, that the prima donna
proposes to once more emerge from
le r "retirement."
The Illustrated weeklies have broken
em in a sort of pictorial fever about
the Welsh castle and Its occupants.
Interior and exterior views of the residence, domestic scenes in which the
Baron and Baroness are the central
figures, and the very earliest and the
very latest portraits of the diva���all
these prove that the press agent is
actually  at  work.
A very remarkable feature of this
excess of publicity is the stress that
is laid on .Mine. Patti's age. It is announced with emphasis, that she is
ti:; years old, but it is also announced,
with still more emphasis, that she
does not look one-quarter that age.
Musical and artistic England is looking curiously forward to the next
move on the program, and wonders
if it is possible that there is still
another "farewell lour" in contemplation.
Adeline Patti spent so much of her
youth in the United Stutes that she is
frequently spoken of as an American.
As a matter of fact, she was born in
Madrid, Spain. February 11), 1843. Her
mother at the time was prima donna

Washington, April 6.���A romance of
more than usual interest culminated a
few iinv.-- ago when Miss Marguerite
Baker, a belle of local society, was
wedded to Alphone Zelaya, son of the
presidenl of Nicaragua.
About a year ago young Zelaya was
admitted to West Point, as courtesy
btudent, from the republic over which
liis father holds sway. While attend-l
int; the military academy, he met
Miss Baker. Acquaintance quickly
ripened Into love, hut the contem-l
plated marriage met with violent op-
poaition on the part of the young
man's parent. President Zelaya di-i
rected Nlcaragaruan Minister Corea
to prevent the wedding, and the latter employed drastic methods in carrying out instructions.
One evening last December, while
the young man was calling on his
sweetheart at her home in this city,1
three detectives entered the house and
kidnaped him. He was hurried from
Washington lu .New Qrleuns and
there put aboard a steamship that
took him to Nicaragua.
At his home, Zelaya used every
argument with his father; but all
failed until he declared that he would
commit suicide, as his elder brother
had done, if he were not allowed to
marry the girl of his choice. President Zelaya was finally won over, and
when the boy reached his majority a
few days ago his father consented to
his coming back to America and
wedding Miss Baker.

impossible for Its prey to disentangle

In addition to these suckers the octopus has a powerful pair of jaws, shaped like tho beak of a parrot, behind
which is a formidable armor plated

octopus wlll attack and kill crabs and
lobsters of considerable size, ripping

enemies in various species ot whales,

latter are particularly fond of devouring the smaller octopuses.

Chicago, April 5.���The physical
collapse ot Mrs. .lohn Alexander
Dowie today followed rumors that the
party in favor of the "First^Apostle"
had grown so strong that a serious
conflict betwen the two tactions in
Zion City might follow the return of
her husband. Friends of Mrs. Dowie
say that she expressed she belief ihat
bloodshed might result.
Early today she fell in a swoon
wiiile in her home and it was feared
for a time that she had suffered a
stroke of paralysis. It was reported
later that she is suffering only from
a severe attack of nervous prostration.
The appellate court today by a decision deprived Dowie of $53,000,
which had been left to him by Fred-
trick Sutton, a New Zealander. The
heirs of Sutton brought suit to have
the will set aside on the ground of
undue influence und won their case in
the lower court. Dowie appealed and
ihe appellate court today decided
against hlm.
Deacon V. V. Barnes, Dowie's general counsel, has sent a telegram refusing to act on his instructions to
cancel Voliva's power of attorney and
installing instead Fielding H. Wilhite.
Barnes'   message  follows:
"Your state of health is bad for the
proper protection of our rights. Everything transferred to Granger. Deeds
have been duly executed and placed
on record. Will not act on your instructions. Am acting ln the interests of Zion. Believe it will be to
your Interests to confirm the agreement. There will be sufficient evidence.    Have documentary evidence.
Members of the Zlon church in
Switzerland in a cablegram indorse
Vollva and the action taken against
Dowie.
Ai a meeting in the tabernacle last
night Judge Barnes, who was the
principal speaker, declared that final
judgment had not been passed on
Dowie, aud that no man should be
condemned until ho had a full hearing. Barnes delcared that what had
heen done was absolutely necessary
tu the Interest of Zion and Its people,
md was for the protection ot stockholders and creditors as well as for
the good name of Dowie.

the eiact date being somewhat uncertain. This monster hnd a body and
shoulders like those of a young woman.
There was bnt one leg, gradually tapering from the hips down and terminating in au immense scaled claw, like
that of a turkey buzzard. There were
four toes, each tipped with a bony nail,
three of them pointing to the left and
one to the right. Tlie creature had
wings in place of arms and always
held them In an erect position, as
though ready to take flight at the
slightest provocation. From the hips
to the single knee the flesh was covered with large, well arranged feathers. From Uie knee joint to the foot
the }eg was scaled, like that of the common barnyard fowl, the spot where the
feathers left off and fhe scales commenced being marked with a large lid-
less eye, which seemed to be altogether
Incapable of voluntary motion. The
neck, head and general outlines of the
face were those of a woman, but the
ears were large and set very low, almost on the neck.
The bead was covered with a queer
mixture of scales, feathers and hair,
but the Oddity of tlie whop- "upper
story1' was a pointed horn, whieh rose
just in the edge of the hair on the center of the forehead. This horn was
tuny Inches In length, and, according
to Zahn, "even a farmer would have
mistaken it for the born of a two-year-
old heifer had it been removed and
shown to him."
The old time wonder mongers all give
pictures and descriptions of this "horned Italian monster," bnt none tells how
long it lived or what was done with
the body after death.
Know tnar ne cannot recover, as mat
loving observer of mankind asserted, so
must every one who knows whereof he
speaks assert that people almost always come to understand tbatlrecovery
Is Impossible. It Is rarely needful to
tell any one that this Is the case. When
nature gives the warning death appears
to be as little feared as sleep.

The I Ij ���tug Llxurtl of Java,
The curious little animals known as
flying lizards (Draco volana) are only
found in Java, and their strange appearance Is supposed to have been the
origin of tlie dragon of tlie mediaeval
eastern Imagination, The reptile ls like
au ordinary lizard, but is provided wiili
folds of extensible skin which arc
spread out by the long ribs and enable
the animal to glide through tlie nir from
tree to tree lu pursuit of the Insects on
which it preys. When lying prone on
the mottled surface of a bough, lt ls
an excellent example of "protective resemblance," as It ls most difficult to be
seen unless lt moves.

InaectH   I lint   I ,.,i 11 n in-  to   I:.int  After
Decapitation.
Must persons of an observing turn ol
mind are aware of tlie fact that then
are several species of insects that will
continue to live without seeming Incon-
| venlence for some lime after decaplta-
' tion, exacl knowledge on the length of
time which the various species of in
se.-is would survive such mutilation
being somewhat vague,
Professor Conestrlnl once underfoot
a series of experiments witli a view ol
determining that and other facts III re
hit ion to the wonderful vitality of such
.creatures.   In eaeb case tbe head wa-
smoothly removed with  a  pair of thin
' bladed forceps, and when spontaneous
I movements of the wings and legs ecus
ed  he employed   sundry   irritating  de
1 vices, such as pricking,  squeezing and
blowing tobacco s Ue over lhe Insect
As a result of these experiments be as
; certalned thai   mhers of the beetli
j family al out- showed signs uf suffer
, big. while such as ants. bees, wasps
I etc.. remained for hours unaffected.
Bome which seemed stunned from thi
, effects of the operation recovered aftei
! ll time and continued to live and enjoy
I n headless existence for several days
Butterflies nnd moths seemed hut lllth
' affected by the guillotining process, and
j the-common files (dipteral appeared tc

"Tlie common house fly." said thc ex
perlnientcr, "appeared to be In full pos
session of his senses (rather paradox
leal, when In all probability the ea
nary had swallowed head, sense and
alii thirty-Six hours after being updated upon."
The bodies of some species of butter
flies survived as long as eighteen days
after the head had been removed, but
the head Itself seldom showed signs of
life longer than six hours after decapitation, In the general Summary of
these huge experiments we are inform
ed that the last signs of life were man
Ifesteil either In the middle or last pall
of legs and that the myriopodl showed
great tenacity of llfe "and appeared
wholly Indifferent to the loss of their
heads."

The   I'llHiiu 1 im   Tided.
The most approved theory among scientists as to the cause of tlie rise and
fall of the tide is that the moon Is the
dominating cause through its differential attraction upon the opposite sides
of the earth, drawing the nearer water
away from the earth under the moon
for tbe production of high water large
and ln like manner drawing the earth
away from tbe opposite waters for the
production of high water small. The
smaller tidal effect of the sun's attraction becomes noticeable mainly ns
modifying the lunar tide, increasing lt
in the spring tides and decreasing it at
neaps and further modifying lt In the
priming and lagging of tlie tides.

A story ls told of the Sudan railway which shows patient literalness.
To an official there came the telegram
from an outlying station: "Station'
master has died.- Shall I bury him?"
Tbe reply was sent: "Yes; bury station master, but please make sure be
ls really dead before you do so." In
due time back came the message:
"Have burled station master. Made |
sure he was doad by hitting him twice
on tlie head with a flsh plate." There
was perfect assurance that there had
been no premature burial.
