On The Clenching of tho Hands in the
A correspondent writes: Whether
the clenching of the hands be the re
sult of mental emotion, of hysteria,
or other nervous convulsion, of acute
poisoning or of tetanus, women al
ways seem to lay the thumb across
the palm and fold the lingers over it,
frequently wounding the skin of the
ball of the thumb by the pressure of
the index and middle-finger nnils;
white men invariably Ilex the fingers
acutely first, now and then digging
all four nails into the palm, and turn
tiie thumb outside, across the back
of the middle phalanges. About
four years ago I witnessed a cose of
idiopathic tetanus in a black woman
in Bnrbndoes. The descose had
readied that advanced stage where
the muscles of the extremities begin
to be affected dining the paroxysm,
and it was interesting to observe,
before actual clenching ensued, that
the thumb lb-st began to twitcli in
wardly, while the lingers were
motionless, l'ossiblo this mny bo
the unconscious result of liaoits ac
quired during life, I have had no
oppoitunity of iioting the phenomen
on in children. Sco. Am. Journal.

. .. How .Nutmegs Grow.
Nutmegs grow on littlo trees
which look- liko littlu'pcar trees, and
are generully not over .-twenty feet
high. Tlio flowers are very much
liko the lily of the valloy. They
aio palo and very fragrant. 'The
nutmeg is the seed of tho fruit, and

a peach. When ripe it breaks open
and shows a little nut inside. The
trees grow on tho islands of Asia
and tropical America. They bear
fruit for faqventy or eighty years,
having ripe' fruit upon thorn all tho
seasons. A fine tree in Jamaica has
over 4,01)0 nutmegs on it every year.
Tho Dutch used to havo ull this nut
meg trade, as they owned tho Banda
Islands and couqueied all the other
tiadcrs, and destroyed tho trees.
To, keep the price up they once
burned tlueo piles of nutmegs, each
of which was as big as a' church.
Nature did not sympathise, with
such meiinness. . The nutmeg pi
geon, found in nil the Indian" Islands
did for the world what tho Dutch
had detcruined should not be done
carried those' nuts, which are
their food, in all the surrounding
countries, and trees .grow again, und
the world had tho benefit. JSco.
