Evidence of the increase of birds for- ;
tnerly quite rare near London conies 1
from every side. In Richmond Park, '
tor instance, Perm ponds hold more 1
waterfowl than have been seen there 1
lor twenty years. There were counted
«W» the upper pond at one time recently
live broods of wild ducks, the largest
numbering eleven ducklings, two pairs
of dabchicks (on the lower pond) and
nearly twenty waterhens out on the
open water. Besides these there were
t}vo pair of coots. As coots are very
shy birds and, unlike the waterhen, dis
like human society, their return is
somewhat remarkable. Green wood
peckers are numerous and the herons
have had a good hatch. One of these
fi shing on Chiswick Eyot as early
as 7:45 one evening recently. A pair of
kingfishers have again nested in the
grounds of Chiswick House, and a pair
of golden eyes have arrived on the lake. ,
These are doubtless tame birds which
have come from elsewhere.

A rustless metal has been patented by
a Pennsylvanlan, composed of ingred

100 pounds; chrome, one-half pound;
tungsten, one-quarter pound, and nickel

M. Berthelot has examined many
classical specimens of ancient mirrors
ip different localities. They seem to
have been made by blowing a thin
walled bulb of glass and pouring melt
ed load into a watch glass shaped por
tion of the thin bulb and manipulating
it so as to spread the metal into a lin
ing layer, about one-tenth of a milli
meter thick. The glass had to be made
very thin, so as not to crack or con
tract with the melted lead.

The "long bridge" across the Poto
mac at Washington, D. C, is soon to be
torn down to give place to a modern
steel structure to be erected by the
Pennsylvania Railroad. As a historical
structure this bridge is perhaps one of
the best known in the country. Dur
ing the civil war it was considered the
connecting link between the North and
the South and was crossed b>- thou
sands of troops. The bridge was built
in 1833 and has been many times re

Charles Tripler, of liquid-air fame, is
quoted as saying in the course of a
recent lecture: "The great utility and
ultimate economy of liquid air will be
in the fact that it can be used at or
dinary temperatures with as great or
greater effect than steam. It requires
a heat of 2122 degrees to get steam
power out of water, but if liquid air is
used, no application of heat is neces
sary in order to develop a far greater
pressure than is possible with steam. If
used in ordinary temperatures it will
develop immeasurable force. Nothing
Could possibly be more economical."
Pointing to the two carboys of liquid
air on the stage, he said: "If this
amount of liquid air were put into the
engines of the Campania those engines
would either go round or go through
the ship." Commenting on this "The
American Machinist" remarks: "The
same may be said for liquid nitroglycer
ine, and the statement means nothing
whatever as to the economy or useful
ness of liquid air as a motive power.
Whether Tripler is simply ignorant or
a conscious humbug, is open to ques
tion. It is obvious that his statements
must be explained on one or the other

Mechanism has been installed for
ringing the chime of bells in the steeple
of St. Patrick's Cathedral in New
York City. There are nineteen bells,
ranging in weight from 300 to 7.000
pounds, and heretofore no means have
provided for ringing them. The air
compressor is an eight by eight inch
horizontal, double acting, single-stage
machine, with a normal speed of 150
rotations per minute. It is driven by
an electric motor geared to it with a
speed ratio of five to one. A vertical
air receiver is placed near the com
pressor and the air is conveyed to the
belfry through a two inch pipe, where
there is another receiver. There is also
an intermediate receiver, thus furnish
ing a large air storage capacity. The
mechanism for striking the bells con
sists of a horizontal air cylinder con
nected to the tongue of each bell. The
bells are hung around the belfry in
two tiers, the larger and heavier ones
being arranged in the lower courses,
and a system of steel I-beams is ar
ranged to provide support for the op
erating cylinders. The cylinders for
the larger bells are 4% inches in diam
eter, those of the next size 3 inches,
and the smaller ones 2 inches in diam
eter. The bells have double clappers,
balancing each other, and so hung that
only a small movement is required for
striking the bell. The piston rod of the
air cylinder is attached to a central
stud projecting below the center of
the clapper. The piston takes air only
one way of the stroke, being returned
by the weight of the clapper, aided by
a spiral spring. The bells are to be
operated from a keyboard, arranged
similar to the keyboard of a piano.
The keyboard Is in electrical connec
tion with magnets controlling the
valves of the air cylinders.

in "Science," "how many assumptions,
without positive support, underlie the
general theory of evolution, and espe
cially the evolution of man from any
known lower type. At the same time,
he does not pretend that our present
knowledge is decisive, either for the

of what'is actually known, we are not

such theory; but, I hasten to add, we
are just as little prepared to affirm
It as a truth." "Such caution," Dr.

"Was primitive man a modern sav
age?" is the question asked by Dr.
Talcott Williams in the "Smithsonian
Report," just issued, and answered by
him in a constructive negative. "To
Dr. Williams," says Dr. Brinton, in
"Science," "primitive man was a peace
ful, happy creature, knowing not war
or cannibalism, with a 'surprising
primitive development,' which later on
degenerated Into civilization. This
early man enjoyed 'a juster conception
of the divine' than his descendants
His gods were peaceful, communica
tion free, hospitality open. 'The earth
was still empty and happy and young.'
If Dr. Williams intends this as a pleas
ant, humorous sketch, it will pass; if
a serious inference from the ascer
tained facts of prehistoric investiga
tion, its author is about a century be
hind time, a* every student of the
actual remains of earliest man knows
the painful but irrefutable evidence
of his worse than barbarous, his really
brutal, condition, apart from all com
parisons with modern savages."

Plant World: A comparison of the
number of species of plants known to
the various learned men who have
lived during the last 2,000 years, and
whose names are more or less familiar
to us, shows how marvelously out
knowledge of plants has been in
creased. Thus Hippocrates, called the
I "Father of Medicine," who lived be
| tween 500-400 B. C knew only -34
! species or kinds of plants. Theophras
tus, 371-225 B. C, who was perhaps
the first real botanist whose name has
been handed down to us, described
about 500 species of plants, which he
divided into trees, herbs and shrubs.
By Dioscorides (77 A. D.) the number
was raised to 000 species, and by
Pliny (23-791 A. D.) to 800 species. Dur
ing the ensuing 1,500 years and more,
comparatively little work was accom
plished. Ray, who wrote between 1085
and 1704, enumerated and described
18.025 species of plants. The number
of plants known to Linnaeus in 1771
was only 8,551 species, less than half
the number supposed to have been
known to Ray. Persoon, in 1807, rec
ognized 20,000 species of flowering
plants, while- De Candolle, in 1809,
recognized 30,000 species. In 1824
Steudel enumerated 70,000 species, in
cluding flowering and lower plants.
This number was rajs~d by Lindley in
1845 to 79,837. In 1885 Ducharte esti
mated the number of known plants of
all groups at 125,000. Durand, in
1888, distributes the flowering plants
as follows: Families, 210; genera,
8,417; species. 100,220; but as this
enumeration was based on the ex
tremely conservative work of Benthan:
J and Hooker, the number was even then
i much larger. An estimate made about
I five years ago placed the of
' known plants In the world at 173.-
I 700, of which the seed plants made up
! about 125.000. Considering the num
! ber of new species published every
I year, it is probable that the number
i now in the books is not much short

Literary Digest: "In his 'Cours de
Geologic' M. Nivoit shows," says "Cos
mos," "how geology enlightens the ag
riculturist on the formation of arable
soil and on the elements that com
! pose it, and the constitution of the sub
soil, and on the influence that this can
exercise on vegetation by its physical
state, by its greater or less permeabil
ity. He cites, among other examples
of the mechanical action of the at-
mosphere, the movements that are sus
ceptible of exercising favorable action
in certain regions. The air is almost
always transparent to the west and
southwest of Fuy-de-Dome, while it is
turbid to the east and southeast. Thi3
is due to the transportation of the
cinders or volcanic ash so abundant
!in the mountain groups of Puy, Mont-
Dore, and Cantal. This ash, which
can remain suspended a long time in
the air on account of its lightness, con
tains fertilizing elements, notably
phosphoric acid and potash, and thus
carries these substances to the regions
whither it is wafted; rain and snow aid
in bringing it to earth. In Limagne
the weight of the volcanic dust de
posited on a hectare (about two and
one-half acres) of land may be esti
mated at 1.000 kilograms (2,204 pounds)
yearly. Thus is explained the exhausti
ble fertility of this country where all
crops succeed perfectly."
No Indian Lunatics.
A full-blooded Indian lunatic never
| lived, according to United States Com.
j missioner William A. Jones, of the De
| partment of Indian Affairs. The stale
j ment was surprising, inasmuch as the
} Commissioner had Just finished ln
! specting the site recently purchased by
i the Government near Canton, I. T.,
j for an Indian insane asylum. Mr.
"The occupants of the hospital soon
to be opened will all be mixed breeds.
Even among them the number of pa
tients is small in proportion to the )n
--j dlan population of 250,000. The exact
number Ido not know. Probably there
never was a case of insanity in any
tribe until the malady was Introduced
by mixing with the whites. Oddly
enough, diseases of all kinds are creat
ing the greatest havoc among the best
cared-for and richest tribes. Those
who have to hustle for themselves are
gradually increasing in numbers.
"Among the Osages, in Oklahoma, for
example, the death rate is something
startling. The nation comprises 10,000
Indians, and has $9,000,000 to its credit,
drawing Interest, in the United States
| Treasury. The reds live in nothing
short of luxury, but early in life the
braves grow fat and flabby, then con
tract consumption and die. The Sioux,
numbering about 20,000, are on the in
crease. They have no such nestegg as
the Osages, and have to work harder
for their livings. It agrees with them."
Mysteries of an Old English Inn.
During the work of enlarging the
Royal Bull Hotel, Dartford, a hostelry
dating back to the days of Wat Tyler,
some interesting discoveries have been
made. In 1773 a murder was com
j mitted at the house, and the body, dis
| appeared mysteriously. A skeleton now
] dug up three feet below the flooring of
,an old cellar leads to the belief that it
is the remains of the victim of the
tragedy. This week a secret stair
case has been brought to light, and as
i this communicates, by invisible dcois i
THE RECORD-UNION, SACRAMENTO," SATURDAY. JULY 15, 1899. '
in the walls of the cellar, with the room
in which the tragedy occurred, it
strengthens the belief that the body
was taken down the staircase and
buried. The remains are much decayed,'
excepting the teeth, and these are in a
fairly good State of preservation. .
A day or two ago a number-of death
warrants bearing the signature of Port
land, Minister of George 111., were
found in the panels of the walls within
which the murder was committed. How
documents pf this character got -into
so strange a hiding place is a matter
for conjecture. One, dated June, 1795,
is a good sample of how warrants were
prepared in those days. It reads:
"Whereas James O'Coigley having been
attainted of high treason, and had
sentence passed upon him to be drawn
upon a hurdle to the place of execu
tion, and to be there hanped by the
neck, but not until he is dead, but that,
being alive, he shall be taken down
and his bowels taken out and burnt be
fore his face, that his head be severed
from his body and his body divided into
four parts, and that his head and body
shall be disposed of as we think fit, and
whereas we think fit to remit that part
of the sentence directing the burning
of his bowels and dividing the body
into four pasts, our will and pleasure is
that he shall be drawn and hanged and
have his head severed from his body."
