STUDY OF BUMPS.
How I'hrenolocy lias Become One of the
Effete 12ranrb.es of Thought.
M. Dumas, the well-known French
writer, recently delivered the oration
at the funeral of M. Desbarollcs,
who had made a reputation as an ex
pert in the science so-called of chiro
mancy, or palmistry. In the coarse of
his remarks M. Dumas said that Des
barollcs had dune for the hand what
Gall and Spurzheim had done for the
brain. This leads an English paper to
observe: "If thi3 parallel is to be taken
seriously, it is not too much to say that
the science of palmistry must be re
garded as practically extinct. Phre
nology to-day is an effete branch of
thought Wc look in -vain for any
mention of the word in the indices of
works for the brain which deal with tho
latest information science has elicited
respecting the organ of mind. No
one possessing the most elementary
knowledge of the progress science has
made within the last twenty years, in
the matter of the functions of the brain,
can for a moment accord to phrenology
a stable position in the list of modern
branches and modes of inquiry. It is
perchance only breaking a butterfly oa
the wheel and slaying tho slain to say
so much. But the science of Gall,
Spurzheim and George Combs still sur-
vives in holes and corners among us,
in the shape of demonstrations by peri
patetic phrenologists of the 'charac
ters1' of their clients. Busts are still
to be seen and bought in which the
human head is mapped out into spaces
of 'dcstructivcncss and 'veneration,'
into areas of amativeness,' form,1
'color,' language' and so forth. There
are many persons who still believe that
'he mystic faculties of human nature
are all pigeon-holed, as the phrenolo
gist teaches, on the contour of the
The reading of character and the
constitution of mind would be an extra
ordinarily easy matter were such things
true. The brain, alas! is much too
complex an organ to be so lightly dis
posed of. It has taken the best work
of a quarter of a century in modern
physiology to open up tho subject of
brain functions, and it will occupy the
energies of many years before we are
able definitely to sum up clearly and
explicitly the exact nature of many of
the brain's wavs and works. But what
we do know of cerebral structure and
action slays phrenology, more com
pletely than it has ever been disposed
of before. The work of Hitzig, Fritsch,
Fcrricr and others has taught us the
new phrenology that of experimental
science. It "has exploded the old
myths about faculties, 'bumps' and
brain-organs, of which so much talk
was heard half a century gono by.
Wc arc able to-day to indicate gener
ally how the organ of mind works.how
certain of its parts corao to the front
over others, now there should exist
lower and higher 'centers' in its sub
stance, how one part regulates speech,
and another seeing and another hear
ing. In our hospitals for nervous
diseases to-day, the physician, from his
htudics in the work "of tho normal
brain, is able to place his finger on tho
region he regards as affected in his pa
tient, and po:t mortem inquiry, as well
as evidence of other kind, is brought
into tho field of research to confirm
his deductions. Looking back to the
'lays of palmistry and soothsaying, wo
hue in the old phrenology, which still
survives in unlearned circles, a fit ao
compauiment of the 'science' of hand.
The art of physiognomy, too, may
well be left in company with these an
tique inoilo of thought. Face and
hands only reflect in a dim fashion,
if they reflect at all, the naturo of their
individual poscsors. Human naturo
is not such an easy study as to be capa
ble of being laid bare before the
crowd by the inspection of palms or by
the manipulation of the head for 'or
gans' of mind, which have no exist
ence in the brain." Milwaukee Senti
How Time, Indispensable Uttle Articles
The design of the stamp is engraved
on steel, and, in the printing, plates
are used on which 200 stamps have
been engraved. Two men am kept
busy at work covering these with col
ored inks and pacing them to a man
and a girl who arc equally busy printing
them with large rolling hand presses.
Three of thc-e little squads arc em
ployed all the time. After tho small
sheets of paper containing 200 printed
stamps hae dried enough they are
sent into another room and gummed.
The gum ued for thi purpose is a
peculiar composition, made of tho
powder of dried potatoes and other
vegetables, mixed with water. After
having been agaiu dried, this time on
little racks fanned by steam power for
about an hour, they are put between
sheets of pasteboard anil pressed in
hydraulic presses capable of applying
aVcight of 2,000 tons. The next thing
is to cut the sheets in tow; each sheet,
of course, when cut, containing 100
stamps. This is done by a girl, with a
largo pair of shears, cutting by hand
being preferred to that done by ma
chinery, which would destroy too many
stamps. They arc then passed to an
other squad of workers, who perforate
the paper between the stamps. Next,
they are pressed once more, and then
picked and labeled and stowed
away to be sent out to the various
offices when ordered. Ifi single stamp
is torn or in any way mutilated, the
whole sheet of 100 stamps is burned.
Not less than 600,000 are said to be
burned every week from this cause.
The greatest'eare is taken in counting
the sheets of stamps to guard against
pilfering by the employes, and it is said
that during the past twenty years not a
single sheet has been lost in this way.
During the process of manufacturing
the sheets arc counted eleven time.

The PecaUarltiea of a Somewhat Noted
At the junction, a small collection of
wooded shanties, where the travc.ers
waited an hour, they heard much of
the glories of Atlantic City from the
postmistress, who was waiting for an
excursion some time to go there (the
passion for excursions seems to be a
growing one), and they made the ac
quaintance of a cow tied in the room
next the ticket office, probably also
waiting for a passage to the city by the
And a city it is. If many houses,
endless avenues, sand, paint make a
city, the artist confessed that this was
one. Everything was on a large scale.
It covers a large territory, the streets
run at right angles, the avenues to tho
ocean take the names of the States. If
the town bad been made to order and
sawed out by one man it could not
be more beautifully regular and more
satisfactorily monotonous. There is
nothing about it to give the most com
monplace mind in the world a throb of
disturbance The hotels, the cheap
hops, the, cottages, are all of wood,
and, with three or four exceptions in
the thousands, they are all practically
alike, all ornamented with scroll-work,
as if cut out by the jig-saw, all vividly
painted, all appealing to a primi
tive taste just awakening to tho
appreciation of the gaudy cliromo and
the illuminated and consoling house
hold motto. Most of the hotels arc in
tho town at considerable distance from
the ocean, and the majestic old sea,
which can be monotonous but never
vulgar, is barricaded from the town by
five or six miles of stark-naked plank
walk, rows on rows of bath closets,
leagues of flimsy carpentry-work, in
the way of ohcap-Johu shops, tin-typo
booths, peep-shows, go-rounds, shoot
ing galleries, pop-beer and cijpir shops,
restaurants, barber shop, photograph
galleries, summer theaters. Sometimes
the plank walk runs for a mile or two,
on its piles, between rows of these
shops and booths, and again it drops
off down by the waves. Here and there
is a gayly-painted wooden canopy by
the shore." with chairs where idlers can
sit and watch the frolicking in the
water, or a space railed off. where the
select of the hotels lie or lounge in tho
sand under red umbrellas. The calcu
lating mind wonders how many million
feet of lumber there are in this unpic
turesquc barricade, and what gigantic
forests have fallen to make this timber
front to the sea. But there is one thing
man can not do. lie has made this
show to suit himself. He has pushed
out several iron piers into the sea, and
erected, of course, a skating rink on
tho end of one of them. But the sea
itself, untamed, restless, shining, danc
ing, raging, rolls in from tho south
ward, tossing the white sails on its vast
expanse, green, blue, leaden, white
capped, many-colored, never two min

A 3Ian Who Was Worthy or the General's
Confidence and Friendship.
'Even so self-reliant a man as Gen
eral Jackson," said a member of Con
gress to a reporter, "had his confidant.
whom he freely consulted about every
thing, public as well as private affairs.
This friend was Judge Overton, of Ten
nessee, the General's law partner. When
Judge Overton was on his death-bed he
directed his wife to bring him all the
letters he had ever received from Jack
son. They had all been preserved,
even the most unimportant of them.
There were enough to more than till a
bushel measure, and there, in his pres
ence, while awaiting death, Judge
Overton had them burned. Upon be
ing remonstrated against destroying
letters that no doubt contained much
of great value to the political history
of the country, he replied that they
also contained a great deal about indi
viduals and private matters. General
Jackson was then dead, and his old
partisan was unwilling to run the risk
of having tho confidence of his illus
trious friend' violated. Judge Overton
remarked, by way of excuse for thedc
struction of the letters, that their con
tents related to the private and public
conduct of many people covering the
period of General Jackson's entire pub
lic service. He said some of the letters
contained charges which the writer
had lived to learn were unfounded and
unjust, and for the valuable public in
formal jn contained in the correspond
ence it would not do to risk an cxpo
ure of the personal matters involved.
So the letters were all burned. II'ij.i
A WILLOW FARM.
Aa Interestlre and Profitable Plantation
Near Macon, Georgia.
About a mile below tho city of Macon
is tho osier willow farm of Mr. I. C.
Plant. The willow switches, at the end
of two years, aro from four to seven
feet long, and arc cut and gathered
into bunches like sheaves of wheat.
In the stripping building they are
steeped in water, and the bark at the
larger end loosened for a couple of
inches by machinery. The leaves and
bark are then removed by a little ma
chiue devised by Mr. Plant. One by
one the switches are placed in the
mechanical stripper, ana with a pair of
pliers are pulled through with a sudden
jerk. They arc then wiped off with a
woolen cloth, bundled, and laid away
Alf the leaves and bark arc dried ami
baled. They arc used for medicinal
purposes, and command a price of
twcuty-Iive cents a pound. There are
at present four hundred thousand wil
lows growing on the farm, and eighty
thousand additional slips have recently
been set out The entire levoc is to bo
eventually covered with them, when
sixty acres will be devoted to this
single crop. The average yield is a ton
to the acre. When dried, tho willows
eommmand two hundred dollars per
ton, and find a ready market Amer
The Enormous Number of Volumee
Printed br the Federal Oetrrnmwt.
There aro 63.063 titles in Major Ben:
Perley Pooro's recently published "De
scriptive Catalogue of Government Pub
lications." And it is estimated that
there are at least 10,000 titles not in
cluded in litis compilation. It is pret
ty saf to say. therefore, that the Gov
ernment has published since its organ
ization 76,000 distinct works, so that
the "Pub. Docs." as they are irrovcr
cntlv called, would alone make a libra
ry that would rank among the largest
fa the country.
The most complete collection of these
documents is that in the Boston Public
Library; the next in fullness is found
in the Congressional library, and the
third large collection is probably owned
by the antiquarian book firm of Anglim
A Co., of this city. These dealers aro
now completing' a full set of public
documents from the Twenty-thinl Con
gress. Only a few volumes are miss
ing, and these they expect to find, and
when the collection is finished they es
timate it will contain 60,000 title. The

arc great thick quartos, like the census
volumes or the "Medical History of the
War." And at the other extreme are
thousand of pamphlet reports on small
matters. But it shonld be noted that
the bills introduced in the Congratses
are not inelnded in the titles, if ffcey
were, the- total would be high in the
hundreds of thousands. The largest
single publication ever undertaken by
the Government is the "Tenth Census'
Which, if completed, would nu snout
twenty-four large quarto volumes.
Only half of these have been issued or
ever will be, but even as it is the Cen
tennial Census is probably the most
voluminous public document, not count
ing as one serial the various annual
reports. Kb donbt the finest and cost
liest group of publications relate to the
Government surveys. Many of these
reports are superbly gotten up, co
piously illustrated, and accompanied by
maps of the highest scientific and me
chanical excellence. One special series
of twenty separate titles relate to the
canals, routes and Isthmus of Panama.
Then there are reports of expeditions to
the Arctic and to the Amazon, reports
on the cholera, on birds, and bugs, and
grasses, on various branches of political
economy, on the Indian from every
standpoint; many elaborate reports on
patents; the learned volumes put forth
under the auspices of the Smithsonian
Institution; such bulky documents as
the stenographic reports of the Star
Route trials and the Guitcau
trial; codification of the land
laws, and the many publications
relating to the civil war. These are
all executive documents, put out, that
is, by the departments. Then, in ad
dition, there arc the Congressional
documents which include the Record,
which alone has now swollen to seven
or ten thick quartos for each Congress;
the great volumes full of tedious and
interminable testimony in committee
investigation, and the thousands of
smaller committee reports.
The pace of the Government press
has kept up with the rapid progress of
the country in all directions. Accord
ing to the index the documents for the
first quarter of a century were about
2,000; for the next quarter, 6,500; for
the third quarter, 20,000; for the fourth.
22,500; and the annual output now
runs up to about 4,000 titles annually.
Then it must be remembered that the
editions arc much larger than in the
early days. Rarely arc less than 500
copies of a document printed, and fre
quently the edition is many times that
size. "Of the annual report of the
Commissioner of Agriculture 300,000
copies are issued and distributed.
The United States Government is, in
short, the greatest publishing house in
the world. By the side of its resources
such an establishment as the Harpers'
becomes quite small. There are on the
1ay roll 400 compositors, besides a
arge force of superintendents, fore
men, etc. Fifty proof-readers arc
employed, and 4." pressmen, llu press
feeders and 34 ruling machine feeders.
The estimates call for 100,000 reams ol
printing paper, or 48,000,000 sheets,
each sheet making eight or sixteen
pages. Washington Cor. N. Y. Sun.
