All  those things will happen if the in-  S'uutions of Dr. G'. \V. Palmer, of  Third avenue, are adoptea by thc  whiskey manufacturers of the United  Stales.  i  Now, when tlie distiller begins to  do business he tills a mash tub with  grain or some other product of the  fields,- subjects it to a great pressure of hot steam, boiling it for  many hours, and thus bringing out  tbe natural saccharine properties.  Then ho dumps it into a fermenting  tub where it is mixed with malt,  hops or a yeast of some kind, after;  which it is placed in the still . and  again subjected to a great heat; and  the steam rising is forced into ' the  sinuous worm from the spigot from  which it emerges raw fire .water���������the  kind the Siwash loves. For the  lovers of good whisky, however this  must be subjected to several years  of treatment, being poured through  charcoal at various intervals to remove the fusel oil, which is thc stuff  directly responsible for the foundation of the W.C.T.U. Then it must  be put away in warehouses to be pro  perly aged.  Now all this tal<es time, money, an  abundance of material, and then a-  gain there are thousands of gallons  of good whisky that float away in  vapor every year on account of . thp.,  imperfections of the old style  "worm."  liut when Dr.  Palmer's method    is  adopted,      all  these  things  will      oe  lie  takes  a barrel   of water,  pours  in all  tho raw sugar     or  cheap molasses,   the  cheaper  thc bet  ty days." said the court to Mr. Ko'b  erl   .Johnson,    the colored .gentleman  of Riclfard's case  fame   Robert smiled   pleasantly i and a member of ���������tlie  henc-li made some remark    respecting  his,  Johnson's * frequent appearance in  court.

The solid hoofed hog Is hot a.freak  of nature, as many suppose, but a genuine case of reversion to a primitive  or ancestral type. It seems that, unlike- the prehistoric ancestor.,of. the"  modern horse, which has four toes-or  hoofs, the old' eiotherium, from which  animal all members of the swine family are descended, had a solid hoof,  and iu the course of ages, as the old  parent form died out and the modern  wild boer, domestic hog. peccary, etc.,  were evolved this solid hoof became  through what Darwin .calls "adapta-  tiou" and "iiaturaTselection" divided-  up ijito two parts, so .that all moderi*  hogs* are cloven hoofed.

The  One   Known   In  History  as  th������  ���������'Victory   of   Victoriec,"  .,:-. The battle which is known in history  as the "Victoiy of Victories" took  place at Nehavend, In Eebatana, and-  was fought between the now Moslem  power in 637 and the empire of Peiv  sia, then one of the most powerful of  the eastern monarchies. It was one of  the most absolutely decisive battles in  the history of war, and It was all the  more amazing by reason of the fact  that it was won by a-people which  twenty years before had been unknown barbarians, lost in the deserts  of Arabia.  Arabian historians place the Persian  loss in a single day at 100,000 men  killed. This may be and probably "*  an exaggeration, but the fact remains  that the Persian dynasty came to an  endJ when the battle was over ami that  Eoronstrianism. which had been tho religion of Persia for over a thousand  years, was at once supplanted by 'Islam. Its modem representatives, as is  well known, are now the l'arsees of  India. |  The victory -was so absolutely decisive that it extended the Arabian dominions over tlie whole of the region  lying between tho Caspian sea and the  Indian ocean. With the exception perhaps of the battle of Tours, no single  fight ever made such a ditforenco in  the after history of tbe world.  Ancient   Artificial  Teeth.  A'mummy of an.
