The Cape Bustards.
Two of the most beautiful of the les
ser Cape bustards of South Africa are
the Vaal and the Blue koorhaans,
birds of splendid form and coloring,
good epually for sport or for the ta
tole. Another very beautiful bustard
ls the Bush koorhaan, a denizen of
bush and forest country, with its no
table pinkish crest, its Intense black
underphrmage, and its handsomely
speckler black and rufour back. This
bird gets up most silently before the
gnuuer, wavers through the trees with
a flight not unlike that of a woodcock,
and aHords not only pretty shooting,
but excellent eating.
The paauw itself may well be term
ed the king of all the bustards. It at
tains a length of more than four fee:,
a wing spread of eight feet four in
ches, and a weight of as much as fifty
pounds. The weight depends, of
course, greatly upon the bird's feeding.
Average well-fed specimens will scale
from twenty-five to thirty pounds. But
at certain seasons this magnificent
bird feeds greedily upon the gum ex
uding from the thorny acacia, and puts
on flesh and fat in - a quite amazing
manner. In big locust years, too, the
paauw gains flesh with great rapidity.
At such seasons well-fed male speci
mens will attain enormous bulk and
fatness, and are to be found ranging
between thirty and forty pounds
many colonists .say even as much as
fifty or sixty pounds-in weight. The
flesh of this splendid game bird is de
licious eating, and a paauw is one of
the greatest luxuries of the hunter's
camp fire or the colonist's table.-Sat

A MORMON WALLED CITY
CORRECTION VILLE, THE HOME OF
THE PROPHET THOMPSON.
A Visit to a Community Established in
Iowa by Latter Day Saints Who Did
Not Follow Brigham Younjr-Abscond^
inp of tho Prophet and Kuin ot Colony,
"It was in 1857 that, in company
with a friend, I visited the town of
Correctiouvilie, inIowa5 arriving there
after a long day's fide northeasterly
from Sioux City," said Geueral James
A, Fairplay, whose youth was passed
in the region west of the Mis
sissippi river, to a Suu mau.
"The country had been surveyed by
the government at the time, aud the
town had received its queer name be
cause it was situated at a correction,
line in the surveys. It was a MormoU
settlement, one of the little communi
ties of Latter Day Sain? s who had not
followod Brigham Young and his peo
j pie across the arid plains ten years
before but had mads t;ieir colonies in
the fertile prairie in the region of rain
fall. The town was built in a manner
unusual in modern construction,being
surrounded by a wall. From ten miles
away, over the praire billowing green
with the high grass of midsummer, we
could see the walled city, the only
sign of human occupation in view,
risiug above the plain like a scene
translated from the Holy Laud. As we
came nearer the corn and grain fields
laid out in rectangles, the gardens and
orchards without the walls could be
seen, and the people, at the hour of
sunset, driving their livestock within
the gates, which were closed at night
against Gentiles and prowling In
"The walls of the houses within
were built of sun-dried brick, made
of clay mixed with prairie grass ol'
straw-a material nbt so good as the
New Mexican adobe bricks, which en
dure for centuries, but sufficient for
the purpose. The walls were higher
thuu a mau could scalo except With a
ladder and thick enough to have stood
a considerable bombardment from ar
tillery, and upon the top Was the b?
ginning of a coping of split saud
stone. As we came near the gate at
the edge of dusk a sentinel hailed us
from the wall and demanded our er
rand. We asked to see the prophet?
Thompson, the spiritual aud temporal
head of the colony, and? after some
delay, he appeared on the wall.
"There was a short parley, and
then, our business being with him and
satisfactory, the cates were thrown
open for us to drive through. Within
.the town the houses were built in a
circle against the wall, all facing tho
common inclosure in tho centre, where
the livestock was gathered at night.
The flat roofs of the houses were
about four feet lower than the wall,
making a good standing ground be
hind the parapet in case the town had
to be defended against au enemy,
with some difficulty wo made way foi'
our team arning the horses, mules,
cattle, sheep and pigs standing and
lying thickly together, to the door of
the prophet's liouse.
- "At the prophet's house the even
ing meal was s?>read of corn bread,
stewed beans and lettuce, with salt
for seasoniug. There was no meat or
butter on the table, Thompson haing?
after the stricter practice of the Mor
mons, a vegetarian. For the guests
a pitcher of milk was procured from
another house, but none of the proph?
et's household partook of ii D?r
ing and aftor the meal Thompson
talked with us freely and with no ap
parent reserve; He was a tall, spare
man, whom I took to be about 37 years
of age, polite and smooth of address,
but notwithstanding his sesmiug
frankness of speech he impressed me
.with a feeliug of distrust. His real
character was revealed in his eyes and
mouth, which indicated cunning, dar
ing and utter unscrupulousness.
"Here in this little conmanity
Thompson governed absolutely ac
cording to the tenets of the
Mormon faith and the 'revela
tions' that he proclaimed from time
to time. He was prophet, governor,
treasurer, merchant, everything that
implied power or profit - a Pooh
Bah and Mikado in one and 'nigh priest
into tho bargain. He published a
newspaper for tho faithful and I was
permitted to glance through the latest
number. It was a queer sheet, de
voted mostly to Mormon mutters, re
ligious and secular, and tilled with
o'7d words which he may lave coined
himself. Neroheim, I remember, was
his word for supreme deity; the others
1 do not now recall. Such news as it
priuted of the outside world had been
doctored in the interests of Mormon
ism, and the whole tenor of the sheet
was in accordance with the cardinal
feature in the faith proclaimed by the
Mormon leaders: that it first would
establish a state, preparatory to con
quering the United States and then
"We retired early to our bed of
straw spread with blankets, on the
floor, and in spit ? of all misgivings,
our sleep was undisturbed until the
sounds of the live stock in the inclo
sure woke ns in tbs early morning.
With the first glimmer of light the
plantation bell in its frame above the
council house was rung, and the whole
settlement became astir, answering its
summons as promptly as soldiers at
roll call. At sunrise the stock was
driven out t J pasture on the prairie in
charge of herd .rs, and after them the
men and older children filed ont of
the gates to their work in the fields.
As they parsed out, Thompson stand
ing upon a house top above the gate,
a patriarchal fignre in steeple-crowned
hat and long linen duster, reviewed
them, assigning them lo their differ
ent tasks and seeing that all were
present and accounted for. The Mor
mon rank and file were a common
place, stolid-looking people, with ja
certain inf ns ion of cranky ones among
them. Even the children were seri
ous and staid in maimer. All wee
submissive to Thompson, who heul
absolute sway, even to the power of
hf*' and death, among them.
"My companion and myself were
well pleased when with life aud prop
erty intact we passed safe through the
gate to thc outer world. All ahontin the
fields and orchards the Mormons were
at work, toiling steadily and methodi
cally and scarcely raising their ej-cs
at our passing. Beyond them among
the tall grass, the cattle, the sheep
and the horses were herded, a picture
of peace and plenty with" a less pleas
ant reality in the background.
"Correctiouvilie, I doubt not, is
there'today, but of the wal! and people
that I saw probably not a vestige re
mains. The Mormon commnuity went
to pieces while I was away in the
army, going in a mauner that might
have been predicted by one knowing
the sUnaiioaaud the man at the head.
It was 'revealed' to Thompson that it
was tho will of God that overy man in
the community'should dc iver to the
prophet hi ; share in the common laud
and goods and live stock. The ne.:t
revelation was thai every man on a
certain day should bring his receipt
foi the property into the ojien space
in the middle of the town, where the
receipts were to be burned. This
having duly been done, Thompson
turned everything that he could sell
into money and absconded with the
proceeds. Of the deluded people a
part, holpod by the main Mormon or
ganization, went to Utah, whero some
of them and their descendants ?re to
day. Others lost heart in the cause
and became absorbed and scattered
among the Gentiles around them.
MAKINC THE BLIND TO SEE.
Successful Transference of a Rabbit's Eyes
to a Girl's Sightless SocketR.
The operation on the eyes of a blind
girl performed by Dr. C. H. Kohler
at Minneapolis, Minn., in which was
involved tho transfer of parts of a liv
ing rabbit's eyes to the blind sockets
of the girl has been pronounced a suc
cess-, and it is believed the girl's sight
will be restored. She had been blind
iii one eye for fifteen years, and totally
blind for six years.
The transference of the eye of an
animal to tho socket of a human being
to restore sight has been one of the
dreams of surgery. As far as appear
ances go the operation has been suc
cessfully performed a number cf times;
the eye-usually that of a nbbit
grew into place, and the muscles
united, but never was the patient abl?
to see; It Was a better substitute than
a glass eye, but of no moro use as far
as vision goes. Tho optio nerve of the
human being and the animal refused
to make practical connection. In the
case of Dr. Kohler's patient it was
not necessary to substitute the whole
of the rabbit's eye. The patient, a
young woman about thirty years old,
whose home is in North Dakota, lost
the sight of one eye fifteen years ago.
Soon after the other eye waa attacked
sympathetically. Every effort was
made to arrest the progress of the
disease, but without avail, and six
years ngo the young woman resigned
herself to absolute and, ns the doctors
told herj hopeless blindness.
When Dr. Kohler resolved oh the
desperate expedient of the rabbit's
eyes he called in a number of other
physicians and surgeons and asked
them for their views; Almost without
exception they pronounced it useless,
but admitted that the attempt could
do no harm. It was decided to oper
ate on the eye that had been blind
fifteen years. The patient was care
fully prepared for the operation, then
both the woman and the animal were
put under the influence of chloroform.
Special instruments had been con
structed with which to excise the
eyes. The whole front of the diseased
member was then removoch The cor*
responding part from the rabbit's eye
was substituted for the excised portion;
thc lid was carefully pulled over and
the eye was bandaged so that there
could be no motion of the lid and no
light could penetrate to the wounded
organ. Of course all aseptic measures
possible were taken? For a week the
doctors waited. Then they made aa
examination. To all appearances the
original and the grafted portion of the
eye had Quited perfectly, and the girl
could distinguish light from dark.
She was not permitted to test her
vision for the tima being;
The success had been so signal that
the second eye was immediately oper
ated ou. It was in much worse con
dition, and nearly the whole eye had
to be removed and the rabbit's eye
As Vet no examination of the second
ey? has been made, lest tho healing
process be interfered with. . The sur
geons can barely contain their impa
tience. The operating surgeon be
lieves that the success will be equally
signal, and the doctors who were so
doubtful are now sure of the success
of both operations, and declare the girl
The Future of the Bicycle.
What should be the exact selliug
price of a good bicycle we will not
pretend to say; but we do not despair
of seeing a well-equipped establish
ment selling first class machines at a
price considerably below the present
reduced figure, and, at the same time,
paying a handsome dividend on a rea
sonable capital investment. It may
further be stated that the firms which
aro the mosi tenacious in adhering to
the old excessive prices are not always
those which produce the best-designed
Competition will, of course, tell its
inevitable tale in the long run. The
demand for bicycles will not decrease
-on the contrary, it will increase;
for the bicycle combines utility aud
recreation in a manner that no other
invention has ever done. As new
firms on a healthy financial basis come
iuto the market prices will go down;
and, naturally, as prices yo down de
mand will go up, until, as recently
said, a bicycle may become almost as
much a matter of course as a pair of
boots in a civilized person's equipment.
Increased numbers of riders will give
strength to put pressure on local au
thorities, so that tracks set apart for
cyclists may possibly become as com
mon on the c lief roads of the country
as footpaths aro now. On a good
asphalt track and under ordinary con
ditions one hundred miles a day would
be within the compass of persons of
both sexes possessing very ordinary
physique, taking into consideration
the more constant use of the bicycle
that will follow if cheaper machines
and improved road facilities are intro
duced. In regard to "the latter, we
do not forget Sir J. Wolfe-Barry's
proposal of special cycle paths in the
streets of big towns and cities. Next
to cost, mud is the chief bar to the
extension of cycle riding at present.
A German shopkeeper went ono
Sunday morning to a customer iu
order to demand the payment of a
long-neglected a<count. The police
heard of this, and regarded it ns a
violation of the new law against trad
ing during tho hours of worship. The
offender was cited and fined. He ap
pealed to the Kammergericht, and was
discharged as innocent. What the law
expressly forbids, said the Kammer
gericht, is any "public or open labor or
trading within the prescribed time."
On the police interpretation, two men
who talked incidentally about their
business relations on a Sunday morn
ing on their way to church might bo
arrested as violators of tho law, which
would be palpably tyrannical and ab
surd. This recalls the good old tale
cf two Sabbatarian farmers who hit
upon a casuistical method of doing
trade on the Lord's .lay without break
ing the fourth commandment. "What
would you give for that calf," a sic ed
one, "if it were not the Sabbath?"
"If it were not the Sabbath I would
give you so much," naming the sum.

A STUDY OF BRAINS.
Their Weight Bears No Relation to tho
And now a scientist stands ready to
prove to us that the weight of the
brain bears little or no relation to the
ability of its possessor. The brains
of two idiots weighed respectively 57.5
and 59.5 ounces, while those of Gam
betta weighed less than that of the
average boy of seven. A weak-minded
mau had a .brain weighing 70.5, while
a dwarfed Indian squaw possessed one
of 73. G ouuees.
To the present generation these
statements may be more or less mat
ters of indifference, but the writer of
this paragraph remembers when one
of the greatest arguments used against
the higher education of women was
based on the fact that their brains
weighed less than those of men. A
brain of little weight was not consid
ered worth cultivating. Its very light
ness proved it to bo unequal to the
physical task of acquiring knowledge
mastered by men whose brains weighed
more. It was like expecting puny
muscles to perform feats accomplished
by athletic giauts.
These arguments were considered
unanswerable in their day. Every
skeptical and fortunate young mau
quoted them to every ambitious and
hampered young woman. They meant,
alas, the self-depreoiation of many a
woman who gave np the struggle. And
possibly it was just because the vali
ant promoters of higher education
made no attempt to answer them, but
went quietly and silently to work
along the lines of their own beliefs,
doing without argument the things
which their opponents were arguing
so ably against, that women of to
day enjoy manifold privileges denied
to their elders. Everything and noth
ing can be proved by argument; the
unanswerable fact lies alone inTiccomT"
The heaviest brains are found in
cold northern countries, the highest
average is obtained in Scotland, so
that between the weight of the brain
and the question of nationality a very
decided relation may be said to exist.
Force in Piano Playing:.
The amount of power expended on
3 piauo has recently been figured out
in a way which, if not altogether ac
curate, is at least interesting. Com
menting on the statement that it really
requires more force to sound a note
gently on this instrument than it does
to lift the lid of a kettle, says Wom
an's Life, it is easy to verify it if ono
takes a small handful of coins and
piles them on a key of a piano.
When a sufficient quantity is piled
on to make a note sound they may be
weighed, aud the figures -will befound
to be true. If the pianist is playing
fortissimo a much greater force is
needed. At times the force of six
pounds is thrown upon a single key
to produce a so'itary effect.
With chords the force is generally
spread over the various notes sound
ed simultaneously, though a greater
output of force is undoubtedly ex
pended. This is what gives pianists
the wonderful strength in their fin?
gets tb at is often commented on.
A story used to be told of Paderew

One of Chopin's compositions has
a passage which takes two minutes
and live seconds to play. The total
pressure brought to bear on this, it is

twelve to eighty-lour tons.

Porto Rico is said to be thc health

south of Cuba, and is a little warmer.
The trade wind is here from nearly
east with a slight bend from the north.
The result is, as iu Jamaica, that the
northeast angle is by far the wettest
and the northern slope is decidedly
wetter than thc southern or Oarrlbean
one. Indeed, the southern slope is so
dry that irrigation is needed in some
places, and it is very imperfectly used.
The Island is more subject to hurri
canes than ls Cuba. It Iles near the
customary path of their centres, while
Cuba ls far io the west of the usual
path. The rainy season in Porto Rico

Mr. Gladstone, lt appears, had a nice
taste in hot mutton pies. One of the
Wesleyan journals recall? a conversa
tion which E. W. Perks had with Mr.
Gladstone at a public dinner in Lon
don, when the ex-Premier asked all
sorts of questions on matters pertain
ing to Methodism. A man who hap
pened to sit directly opposite, -wishing
to divert the conversation into another
channel, asked: "Do you know Ches
ter, Mr. Gladstone?" "Yes, a little,"
was the answer, an ominous smile
playing about the mouth. "Do you
know Chester, Mr.-?" "Not very
well," said the unwary questioner.
"Well, if you go to the city of Chester
you will find a confectioner's shop in
such a street," giving the number. "Go
into that shop and you can buy a hot
mutton pie, deliciously hot, (and here
Mr. Gladstone screwed up his eyes,
and his face beamed with delight as
he recalled the taste and smell o?
those savory pies), and all for three
pence." Then, turning to Mr. Perks,
in deep earnest tones he said: "Let us
resume where we left off." There
was no further interruption from the
opposite side of the table.-St. James
"Why is it that your melancholy
looking neighbor always has so many
troubles?" asked one suburban resi
dent of another.
"Because he can borrow them.
There's a man that will borrow, your
paper every day before you are through
reading it, and then get grumpy on
your hands if you quit taking it. You
can bet your life that ii he had to buy
trouble he wouldn't have any."-De
troit Free Press.

Made From Sawdust
The town of Desoronto, in Canada,
whore there are several large lumber
mills, is partially lighted by gas made
from sawdust. The sawdust is
charged in retorts, which are heated
by a wood fire, the gas from the re
torts passing into series of coils and
thence Into tho purifiers, which are
similar to those used for coal gas.
Limo is the principal purifying agent
employed. When it passes out of the
retorts the gas possesses an odor much
loss disagreeable than that of ordinary
lighting gas, and resembles somewhat
that of smoke from a fire of rjrocn
wood or loaves. The works In use are
small, turning out daily 5-10 cubic
meters of gas, for the production of
which about two tons of sawdust are
The Umbrella Trade.
; Speaking of.thc vast growth of the
umbrella trade, an old salesman said
that he remembered, in 1S5S, seeing
umbrellas peddled from a cart, on
ainy days, at Broadway and Fulton
street Formerly, he added, umbrellas
were sold In this city at but few places
except hatters' and haberdashers*
shops, while now stores for the sale
of umbrellas exclusively are multiply
I ing, and immense quantities are soid

that, according to the United States
census, the value of the umbrellas
manufactured in this country was $3.

Tbe Police at Shanghai.
3D a well ordered British-American
quarter at Shanghai, China, the strong
force of police is an interesting
feature. Some of these arc English
men; others are Chinese who have
been trained to deal firmly with the
great coolie class which throngs in all
parts of Shanghai; and there are be
sides the Sikh police, chosen men
from the Punjaub! regiments, who
patrol the city aud its lonely outskirts
on horseback. In the French settle
ment the guardians of the peace are
wholly different, hoing fairly faithful
copies of the typical gendarmes of
Paris. They are assisted hy a certain
tnrmber of Gallicized Chinese, but thc
affairs of tho French quarter aro not.

these of its Anglo-Saxon neighbors.
