FABLED SEVEN THROWN INTO OB
SCURITY IN COMPARISON.
Bcorei of the Creations of Modern Times
Surpass Any or All of the "Wonders of
the Ancients Some of America's Ee
Compared with the seven wonders of
the world classified by the ancients there
are seven times seven wonders now. The
fabled Colossus of Rhodes, the Alexan
drian lighthouse, the hanging gardens of
Babylon, sink into insignificance beside
the achievements of modern times. The
Colossus of Rhodes was, in all probabil
ity, a myth, while the Bartholdi statue is
an accomplished fact, and undoubtedly
equal in point of achievement to any of
the seven wonders of the ancientB, not
even excepting the pyramids.
As a matter of fact, the real wonders
of the world, albeit they have ceased for
the most part to be wonders by reason
of familiarity, represent inventions
rather than engineering and architect
ural skill; the railway, the steamboat, the
photograph, the telescope and the self
binding reaper are in themselves won
ders of which the Egyptians and the
Greeks never dreamed. But in the line
of engineering skill, which was the most
prominent feature of the original seven
wonders, there are 60 many proud
triumphs that it is by no means an easy
matter to name the foremost seven.
THE MODERN LIST.
The list comprises the Forth bridge, in
Scotland; New York's underground
aqueduct, which is thirty miles long, on
an average ISO feet underground, and
cut through rock; the Eiffel tower; the
Brooklyn bridge; tho St. Gothard tun
nel, between Switzerland and Italy, be
gun at a height of 1,340 feet, and cut for
nine and one-lialf miles through the 6olid
rock; the improvements at Hell Gate,
and the jetties at tho mouth of tho Mis
sissippi. It is easy to take exceptions to
There are probably few intelligent peo
ple who will not dibpute the claims of
some one or other of these achievements.
Tho Eiffel tower, for example, lofty as it
is, Bhould scarcely be permitted to crowd
out tho Suez canal, and the engineering
feat of removing the obstructions at
Hell Gate is hardly to be compared with
the building of the Pacific railroads.
The Siberian railroad also is entitled to
dispute the claim of some of tho wonders
in the list, while the Bartholdi statue is
scarcely to bo crowded out, not only for
its colossal proportions, but by reason of
the skill required to produce the results
aimed at. There are several cantilever
bridges also, 6ome one of which is likely
to suggest itself to engineers as having
good grounds for disputing the placo in
the list of seven.
To many unfamiliar with tho problem
to bo solved it may seym as if tho jetties
of the Mississippi were hardly entitled
to place in the list. There are no
mighty buttresses of Btone, no marvel
ous structures by human hands to arrest
attention only lines of willow basket
work, filled with mud and gravel and
sunk in tho river channel. But we 6ee
what has been accomplished by such
simple means suggested by the genius of
SIMPLE BUT WONTJERKUL.
Here is the problem: A river necessary
to the inland commerce of a continent,
whose waters continually bear vast
quantities of sand and gravel toward the
sea. A cubic inilo of solid earth, it has
been estimated, is thus borne down by
the Mississippi every year. When tho
stream met the waters of tho gulf tho
current was checked by tho inflowing
tides, and a great burden of earthy mat
ter was deposited, whilo tho river spread
out ovor a great extent of tcrritorj.
Navigation was tendered uncertain and
dangerous, and millions of dollars ex
pended in dredging brought no practical
results. Tho n vcr could beat tho United
States government in a contest waged
on that line.
Then came Capt. Eads with a propo
sition to gather tho willows along tho
shores, make them into crates or mat
tresses, fill them with mud and gravel,
place them in parallel lines where a
channel was wanted, and ect tho river to
do its own digging by means of a quick
ened current. That was tho basis of tho
jetty 6ystcin, which has more than
doubled tho depth of tho channel at the
mouth of the most important river on
Tho t Jiters continued to deposit sand
gravel between tho jetties nnd tho
shores, the willows sprouted and grow,
and thus eolid banks of earth wero
formed and piotected by trees. It is
only necessary to extend the lino of wil
low baskets from time to time as occa
sion demands in order to cany tho chan
nel still further into tho gulf. The jetty
system is a grand triumph of simplicity,
but fairly entitled by reason of tho re
sults obtamod to bo reckoned among the
leading seven wonders of tho world.

If a Yap1s nest is laid biro in Novembei
three distinct kinds of wasps will be seen
small neuters or workers, now few in
number, module ,sl2cd siinglass males and
f rouj&fillJtxvaMlaree wasps. Tho latter are
tho queens or fertilized mothers, and alone
survive the wimp's. Some few of them re
main in the nest, burthe greater propor
tion "of them hibcrnattj in warm and shel
tered spots, in nooks nnd crannies, in the
thatch of cottages or straw ricks.
With the bright miu of March they are
revived to life a.i 1 activity, and then ruay
be seen nbout every hedge bank, seeking
for a suitable hole In the ground, where
each may found n vaspiary or common
wealth. IlRving chosen a spot, the queen
at once commences to scoop out tho soil
and carry it away in her jaws, and soon a
vaulted chamber is made a foot or more
beneath the grout d. Next she proceeds to
some old stumjs and decayed woods,
whence she uibLIes small fragments of
woody tissue by means of her strong man
dibles. These she carries home in the form
of small rounoed pellets, masticates them
thoroughly, ming las them with glutinous
saliva, and finatl) manufactures a strong
kind of paper
Unlike the quera bee, whose sole busi
ness it is to lay e igs, the queen wasp l;as
to work hard all day long. With the pa
per she makes she twists a strong cord,
which is fixed firmly to the roof of her
abode. She then makes a cell at the other
end of the cord; s round this she proceeds
to build many oUier cells, and in each of
these she lays an igg.
In due time the eggs are hatched and
footless grubs emerge; these pass through
the larva and pu) stage, and eventually
a young colony ot wasps is started. Kuu
forth the queen leaves the nest no more.

Louis Lachat's Sensational Experience
in Kew York.
Mile. Louise Lachat Is just now the ces
ter about which a very pretty judicial, po
litical and personal stcrm is raging in New
York city. Thotitlaof the case is Lachat
vs. Bateman et tut., malicious prosecu
tion, etc.; and the moral of Mrs, Bateman's
case is that one should not be hasty In
charging theft because property is missing.
The moral of tho girl's oasa is threefold:
that it is bad to be in a strango laud and
ignorant of the language, that it is very
risky to be maid in a family where dia
monds art: left lying about carelessly, ami
that it is worst of all to be poor and friend
less. And these three am what's tha mat
ter with Louise Lachat.
Mr. and Mrs. A, EL Bateman are people
of wealth living at No. 3 Fifth avenue. He
is of late something of an invalid, and she
is the fortunate owner of $12,000 worth of
diamonds two elegant necklaces. Louise
Lachat is a French
girl, or woman,
who hud been the
uurse for the Bate
man children for
a year, and was
greatly beloved by
them as well as
trusted by the
family. She had
free access to the
room in which tho
and was often sent
with the key to
get things from
the same drawers
in which the jewels lay in their little case.
The jewels were missed, nnd Mrs. Bateman
could not reniomber having seen them for
some days. The maid had been in the
room frequently. To the feminine mind
tho Chain of logic was complete, aud so
Louise was arretted, put through a rigid
examination at police headquarters, com
mitted to jail, then brought out and for
mally imprisoned again in default of ?10,
The evening rf the day of her sccord
commitment n directive found the jewels
in a room of the Buteman mansion in
the bag they wero usually kept in, but
under a bod. Mrs. Batemau, who had
sworn to the'ehargo against the girl and
then gone to the country, went into tho
city next day and presenting herself at
Jefferson market police court withdrew
tho charge and requested Justice O'Reilly
to release tho girL But it was not so sim
ple a matter. Uo would not take tho re
sponsibility till the proper attorney had
consented, and that attorney would not
net till tho grand jury had reported, and
so the Lachat girl had to stay in jail a
whilo longer. Then a queer thing hap
pened, as to which the authorities are dis
puting. First, tho clerk of the court hinted to
Mrs. Bateman that if sho withdrew the
charge unconditionally tho girl would
have grounds for a suit against her, which
would not be tho caso it tho charge re
mained and was acted on by the grand
jury. Second, a detective hinted to tho
Batemans that they had better adhere to
tho original chargo' and claim that thu
girl had secreted tho jewels where they
wero found. Third, Mrs. Bateman in
sisted upon giving the girl a dollar, which
was supposed to "in full ngainst
damage," nnd fourthly, and most singular
of all, a detective induced the girl to sign
a paper supposed to bo a rcleaso of the
Batemans from all liability.
It soon transpired that Mile. Lachat did
not know what Bbe was doing eno thought
it only a formality to secure her release
and then n hot hunt began for the paper
nnd the detective Both' are hard to find.
Georgo F. Titus, detective and sergeant,
was thought to bo tho man; but declares
on oath that he isn't, and tho inspector
believes him. The paper has vanished
since tho lawyers gave their opinion that
it is valueless. Tho polico authorities in
sist that tho girl has contradicted herself
in many ways, and the girl says that the
interpreter they Bent to her deceived her
both as to tho paper and tho charge against
her. The grand jury, of course, ignored
the chargo against tho girL and now she
has brought suit against tho Batemans for
$100,000. Tho developments will no doubt
give interesting views of how some thing
are dono in detective circles.

Carriage of Infection by rkyttelaa.
The communication of contagious dis
eases by physicians is a question which has
for some time been agitated in Englaad,
tho general conclusion being that, al
though it cannot bo denied as a thing pos
sible for a medical man under sowe cir
cumstances to convey infection from one
patient to another, the risk f this taking
place is, if ordinary precautions be take,
This is thought tote clearly shown by
the experience of tho London Fever hospi
tal, where the resident medical officer in
the discharge of his duties Is constantly
passing from the scarlatina department to
the departments for Biensles, typhoid,
diphtheria, etc nnd yet, as stated, it hatt
never been found that he transfers theao
contagia, although he would be nnclt
more likely to do so than an ordinary
practitioner, inasmuch as the poison is
necessarily more concentrated in a fever
ward than in a room where only one pa
tient is treated.
Tho medical attendant is not, as a rule,
brought into sufficiently close and pro
longed connection with his patient for his
clothes to receive any very Inrge amount of
the contagion, nnd a short exposure iu tha
open air is generally sufficient to disinfect
him. For all ordinary purposes washing
tho hands in n disinfecting solution nnd a
short exposure to fresh air will auiliciently
disinfect a practitioner, though It Is advis
able that ho change hU cout and visit h!i
infectious patient last.- New York Trib
