I*roperty Among Ants and Bee?.
The collective system- of property
must have lasted among ants and bees.
for many thousands of years, for, apart
from, cases of demoralization such as
may, for example, be produced among
bees by giving them a taste for drunk-'
enneiss, these intelligent insects show
the most absolute deference and devo
tion to social property. Their primi
tive selfishness has broadened out . into
a collective or patriotic egoism. But;
these very social species, with their |
more than Christian charity,'..have'not'
reached this "high degree of civilization
at one bound. Zn the ant and bee
> works, as: in our own, there are sav
ages. There are still at the present
time certain species of ants ignorant of
the division of labor carried . so far
arnon? their civilized " congeners.

The Remarkable Survival of Three Ex
tombed Miners In Bohemia.
The teaching of experience as illtu
teated by several instances of prolonge
abstinence, though it may afford som
idea of human endurance in this partie
ular under special conditions, has ye
provided no certain criterion of the vi
tal resistance possessed hy the averag
man when suddenly deprived of ever
form of sustenance. The measure o
this force may nevertheless be gauge
with approximate correctness from; th
history of recurrent instances of prc
longed and accidental privation. As ai
example, the following is remarkabl
even in this category:
It is the narrative of three Bohemia:
miners, who, after being entombed by i
fall of sand in the pit where they wer
working, were finally rescued alive
though of course in an utterly pros trat
condition, seventeen days later. . Darin;
the period of their live burial air wa
pumped down to them by bore holes
On this they may be said to have lived
without food and without water. Tb
total want of the latter is what make
their survival so remarkable. But fo:
this essential the longer fasts of prof es
sion al fasting men would have beei
We can have no difficulty in under
standing generally why this holds frui
if we bear in mind the fact that no
only-does water constitute by far thi
greater constituent of every tissue, bu
that without its due proportion the cir
culation and nutrition of the blood anc
that needful if costly chemical chang*
upon which all tissue repair depend?
would be alike impossible.
In endeavoring to trace the rational?
of a life persisting, as in the Case of th?
buried miners, in spite of the absence ol
every natural condition, we must notice
one or two significant points. In the
first place, their condition was that ol
rest, their functional metabolism being
proportionally less active, their waste ol
tissue diminished and their output ol
carbonic acid not So likely to overcharge
the surrounding atmosphere. Further,
we may take it for granted that a robus!
physique had no small ?share in the con
servation of vital energy.
Much depends in such cases on the
amount of nitrogenous matter stored up,
for the most part in the mnscnlar tissue,
aud available for destructive changes.
We may safely assume that tho amount
of reserve nitrogen in the case of these
men was not meager, lt is mainly, no
doubt, to this circumstance that we
must attribute not only the fact of theil
existence, but the still more remarkable
prospect of their convalescence and ulti
mate recovery.-London Lancet.
An Interesting Question.
A very interesting question is before
congress and the American Bar associa
tion arising out of the unfortunate mas
sacre of the Italians in New Orleans.
The relations between this country and
Italy were strained nearly to the point
of war. Diplomatic intercourse was not
discontinued,, but Baron Fava, the Ital
ian minister, was recalled.
The issue in the controversy arose
from the conduct of the mob that broke
into the New Orleans jail and killed the
Italians who had been arrested for the
murder of the chief of police. For
everything done by the people of the
city, and for everything done or left
undone by the government and courts
of the state of Louisiana, the federal
government was responsible to Italy.
The men engaged in the outrage were
acquitted, and this government recog
nized - ita moral responsibility, at least
by paying a small sum of money to sur
The question before congress and the
Bar association's international law com
mittee is clear. What remedy ia there
for a condition of law, international and
domestic, under which the United States
is responsible to a foreign government,
even to the point of war, for the acts of
the people and courts of a single state?
It is an interesting and important ques
tion and one in which the whole coun
try is concerned.-Harper's Weekly.
A Natural Incubator.
The officers and men of the United
States cutter Bush relate marvelous
tales of wondrous discoveries made by
them during their 1890 cruise. They
dredged for deep sea oddities in the al
most fathomless "sinks" of the Pacific's
bed. They collected marine algee so
delicate in figure that it took the finest
microscopes to bring out even the coars
est outlines; leaving the minute fibers as
a hazy mist on the vision, and finally
outdid themselves by getting a fine
photographic view of a creature ?port
ing in the sand of one of- the low lying
islands which leads their paleologi&t to
the belief that some of the supposed
antediluvian-monsters are. still in ex
But the feat of which they seem
proudest was the discovery of a natural
incubator on the sides of the volcano
Bogoslov, where millions of awks, gulls
and other sea birds deposit their eggs
and leave them to be hatched by vol
canic heat. Who says that birds are de
void of intelligence?-St Louis Repub
Not Looking for a Job.
A young woman, whose distinguished
carriage was hidden beneath her mack
intosh, and whose well kept locks were
crowned with a soft felt cap, came in to
engage a cook. An elderly woman with
a lorgnette had come for the same pur
pose. The latter became a little impa
tient over the delay to which she was
subjected and began a little investiga
tion on her own account. She advanced
to the lady in the mackintosh, whose
head happened to be turned away, and
"Can you cook?"
The young woman turned her aston
ished gaze upon her of the lorgnette.
Then she said politely:
"I can cook. But I am not looking
for a situation."-New York World.
