States. The production of coal Is the
great mining imdustry of the country,
far exceeding in value the gold, silver
and iron industries. More than forty
million tons were taken out last year.
There were also twenty-eight million
tons of anthracite coal mined. Eng
land produces more than twice as
much coal yearly as the United States,
and takes it all from an area about the
size of Ohio. The coal deposits of
this country have been barely touched.
They are found in almost every prt
of the land. The mines at Seattle, in
the extreme 'Korthwest, produced one
hundred and fifty thousand tons last
year, and numerous deposits have
lately been discovered on Puget's
Sound and along the line of the North
ern Pacific railroad, so it does not
seem likely that any part of the coun
try will want for fuel for many yea s

A recent census bulletin estimates
that the number of persons using wood
tor domestic fuel in the United States I
in 1880 were more than 32,500,000, or
ibout sixty-four per cent, of the entire
for domestic purposes is estimated at
more than 140,000,000 cords, and it is
valued at nearly 307,000,000. The
use of wood for fuel outside of domestic
purposes is quite small,, amounting to
only about 5,000,000 cords. The con
sumption of charcoal is set at 74,000,

The menhaden fisheries in the United
States employ $2,460,000 of capital, in
vested in shipping and the manufac
ture of oil, soap and other products,
286 sailing' vessels, 72 steamers and
2,805 men. These statistics were shown
at a recent meeting in New York of
the United States Menhaden Oil and
Guano association. Other fact3 re
vealed on this ocoasion were that last
year there were 454,192,000 fish caught
ana 1,266.569 gallons of oil and
25,025 tons of crude soap made. Dur
ing the meeting there was much dis
cussion on the matter of regulating, by
legislative enactment, the catching oi
menhaden so as to prevent the ex
tinction of the fish, the opinion being !
unanimous that the supply will soon
be exhausted unless the indiscriminate
dredging of the sea be soon stopped
Opinions, however, did not agree as tc
the time when the spawning season
sets in, during which, all agreed, fish

It appears from statistics which
have recently been compiled that th
United States possesses in round nunv
bers 38,000,000 cattle, India 30,000,

20,000,000 horses, the United States
10,500,000 and Austria 8,500,000. Aus.

Mr. Edward M. Bentley, one of the
examiners in the electricity division
of t'ie patent office, recently made
an address at an informal gathering in
Washington, touching the work of
the electricity division and the present
state ol the science. In the course of
his remarks he said that about two
thousand applications for patents in
electricity were filed in 1882, of which
about two-thirds were granted. To
show how the subject had grown in
importance within a very few years,
he said that in 1877 electricity was a
sub-class in a division. Now it is the

An absurd superstition prevails that
the bites of all dogs should be either
cut out or cauterized, and the poor ani

adopt either of these serious courses,
provided the dog is healthy. In fact,
they are simply ridiculous, and are cal

the person bitten. Of course, in severe
