USE OF THE RIGHT HAND.
Not Due to Training, Bue Is a Natural
Prof. Cunningham pointed out how
it is evident that as far back as we can
trace man he was preferentially right
handed. Thus Dr. R. Lehmann
Kitsche had examined the bones of
prehistoric men from southern Ba
varia and had found that the clavicle
and the long bones of the right upper
limb were distinctly heavier and more
massive than the corresponding bones
of the opposite side. All the evidence
at our disposal goes io snow that right
handedness is due to a transmitted
functional pre-eminence of the left
brain, and this functional pre-eminence
was not a haphazard acquisition which
had been picked up during the lifetime
of the individual, it rested upon some
structural foundation which transmit
ted from parent to offspring. Modern
science, then, if we have correctly in
:erpreted Frof. Cunningham's meaning,
would seem to show that there is a
distinction in nature of the right hand,
-it is-indubitably the one by which
most delicate manual actions are per
formed, with one marked exception
namely, the fingering in the play of
stringed instruments which are played
witt a bow. If, as Prof. Cunningham,
in referring to the crossing of the
motor impulses, says, "It thus came
ont that the left cerebral hemisphere
ntrolled and regulated the muscles
the right side, and. Its functional
periority over the right hemisphere
as indicated by the subservient posi
tion which the left hand held with
reference to the right, and the man
ier, in which all manual acts which
equire precision and skill, all the
ovements which specially required
e higher guidance of the brain, were
performed by the right hand"-if this
be so, how comes it that the fingering
of a violin, which surely is an act re
quiring the higher guidance of the
brain, is always, so far as we know,
performed by the left hand?-London

We seldom realize how strong the
sentiment of home ls amotig animals.
Not home in the sense of the place
where the eggs or young are cared for,
lut the spot which is selected as a
sleeping-place-where after a long
day's hunt or journey, the creature
may return and rest itself.
Who would think of a butterfly as
having a home? To see one of these
insects flying aimlessly from one
flower to another, memory of the place
where the previous night was spent
would seem improbable. And yet
many of these little creatures do re
member and returh'night after night
to the same spot. A hibernating but
terfly was found one cold February
day, clinging with stiffened .?et to the
' under side of a piece of bark on the
ground. Held in the fingers and ex
amined, it might have been a cabinet
specimen, for not the slightest sign of
life was exhibited. The butterfly was
replaced, and a day or two later, when
a thaw made the air spring-like, the in
sect had deserted its winter's bedroom
and was not to be found. The follow
ing day it returned, and when found
was quite limp, but speedily stiffening
from the recurring cold weather into
the death-like trance of hibernation.
Fishes sleep, and very soundly.too.
Although they have no eyelids tb close,
and no change can be detected in the
expression of the eyes, yet loss of con
sciousness is proved by the lack of
notice taken of clouds and other dis
turbing conditions. These creatures
have favorite resting places to which
they return again and again. In thc
Bay of Fundy at every incoming tide
fish return to certain spots, generally
niches in the rocks, and remain mo
tionless, and probably asleep, for
hours. The exact location of each spot
chosen and rechosen, and the similar
ity in the appearance of the fish oc
cupants, would seem to warrant the
assertion that they were the same indi

Finally it drops panting to the floor,

Birds have pleasant dreams as well,

Castro and His Rival.
Cipriano Castro, President of Vene
zuela, came from the extreme west of
the country, and in 1S98 removed
President Andrade from office, and be
came Provisional President himself.
His followers were from the Andean
region and anarchy reigned in Caracas
during the ?meute. His special
abhorrence is European meddling in
the finance of his country. On Octo
ber 28, 1901, he was duly elected Con
stitutional President, and his term
does not regularly expire until March,
The Berlin Kreuz Zeitung, in com
menting on his conduct, while the
debts now discussed were being con
tracted, said: "Then he began in the
palace of Mira Flores at Caracas the
life of an unbridled Sardapapalus. But
when the brave man invited his fair
friends from North America, and the
people heard of the orgies that were
held, heard that their money was go
ing to North America, there arose a
cry for the fellow's expulsion." This
is the biased view of a German paper.
Castro was elected by the people af
Now the chief rival for his place is
General Manuel Antonio Matos, a man
who spent years in Europe and is a
diplomat of power. He is responsible
for the European hostility to Castro.
Europe has financed him, and he has
pledged the resources of Venezuela as
security in event of his success.
If in connection with a true por
traiture of the man reflection be given
to the unknown validity or amount of
the debts, some guaranteed and some
private contracts, it may be concluded
that this impetuous Andean has some
shadow of right with him. His zig

THE LENCTH OF THE DAY.
Sensibly Constant Th rou eli Periods of
Thonsands of Tears.
Professor R. S. Woodward, tb* di
rector of the Allegheny Observatory,
has made a mathematical Investigation
of the effects of the contraction of the
earth through cooling, on the one hand,
and the increase of its bulk from the
accumulation of meteoric dust, ou the
oilier hand, have had or may have here
after In changing the length of the day.
The former of these two causes tends
to accelerate the earth's rotation on Hs
axis and thus to shorten the day, while
the latter cause must have a contrary
effect. The conclusion at which he ar
rives is that so slowly does thc effort
of cooling accumulate that the day will
not change-or has not changed, as the
case may be-by so much as a bal/
second in the first ten milliou years af
ter the earth began to -solldifj*. Still,
the shortening of the day which must
come with the^end of the process of
cooling is a very";sensible fraction of
its present length. Assuming that thc
earth lind originally a temperature of
3000 degrees centigrade, it follows, ac
cording to his calculations, that the
day will ultimately be shortened by
about six por cent, of its Initial length,
or by an hour and a half yearly. The
length of time required by the earth
to cool down to thc temperature of sur
rounding space must he measured by
millions of years. Thus, Woodward
shows that lt will require about 30,000
million years for the earth to accom
plish uinety-five per cent, of its con
traction, and that after a million mill
ion years its contraction will no longer
sensibly affect the length of the day.
During no Interval so short as 2000
years in the entire history of this cool
ing process can the length of the day
have diminished by so much as the
thousandth of a second from the causo
This slow shortening of the day is off
set by the effect of the accession of
meteoric dust; yet, so slowly docs this
dust accumulate, notwithstanding tho
fact that fully 20,000,000 meteors fall
daily, that its effect will not become
perceptible uutil the total effect from
cooling is nearly complete. In round
numbers the latter effect goes on two
hundred thousand times as fast as the
effect from meteoric dust. If, there

A TOWN RUINED BY A KISS.
SOME REMARKABLE STORIES OF
BLOODSHED AND PLAGUE.
How Red Ruin Ran Like Fire Over a
Village in Cuba-A Kiss Practically
Depopulated Eden, a Town of 1,400
Inhabitants In Queensland.
Red ruin ran like fire over the little
town of Curara, in Cuba, as the result
of a kiss, and depopulated the place
within a few hours. A Spanish trad
ing vessel chanced to anchor in the
small natural harbor adjacent to Cu
rara to kill time before proceeding tc
Havana, at which port she was not to
arrive until a certain date. Leave was
given to the crew to land and they
went off in a body to Curara.
It was a rcugh crew picked up from
the very scum of Spain's refuse popu
lation, and included two or three
Asiatics who had been taken on to fill
gaps. Naturally, the first thing these
men done was to push their way into
a wine saloon, where they drank until
they could pay for no more.
There was a young Cuban girl in the
saloon and her pretty face attracted
the attention of more than one mem
ber of thc crew, and conversation soon
circled round her. Finally one of the
sailors rushed up to and embraced
her before she was aware of his in
tention. Thc next instant he had paid
the price, for the girl's lover, who
chanced to be present, without a mo
ment's hesitation struck him dead with
The death of their brutal companion
kindled all the fierce passions in the
sailors, whl were already mad with
liquor, and they dashed forward to
kill the lever. Other men in the sa
loon, however, who had witnessed
the tragedy, drew knives to defend
the murdered against tho sailors, and
a pitched battle ensued. The sailors
were victorious and put to flight those
men they did not kill or maim. Then
they rushed out, attacking every one
they met, men, women and children.
The new:' spread and the townspeo
ple fled in terror before the blood
thirsty sailors away to the neighboring
plantations, without stopping to think
what they did. Not caring to follow
the fugitives for fear of meeting police
or soldiers, the crew kept to the town
and hunted high and low fer any one
upon whom they could pour out their
hatred. They found but few. and those
they killed. From first to last four
teen men and two children fell their
victims. Their own losses were but
Not content with their revenge they
set fire to every house, which, being
lightly built of wood, burned right

landing Curara was in ashes, deserted
but for its dead. And to this day the

It was a kis3 which practically de
populated Eden, a town of some 1,400
inhabitants, in Queensland. A stranger
tramped into the town one day, and,
after refreshing himself at a little eat
ing house, insisted on kissing the wife
of the proprietor. The latter was pres
ent and laughed heartily at what he
considered a fine joke, for his spouse
was past her prime and far from at
tractive. The stranaer passed on
along his way inland.
Next, day the woman was taken ill;
within forty-eight hours she was dead
and her husband and two children
that a violent disease had broken out
in the t.o.vn most of those people who
could leave hurried away at once.
Some struck toward the coast, others
went inland. A few of the latter pass
ed oa their way the body of the
stranger who had come into Eden
and kissed the innkeeper's wife.
Of those Edenites who chose or were
forced to remain more than one hun
dred lost their lives through the
stranger's death dealing kiss. It was
many months ere the epidemic passed
away altogether, and numbers of peo
ple will still travel miles out of their
way to avoid the town, which is rven
now practically deserted.
A similarly terrible kiss was given
some years ago by a sailor to his
sweetheart, who lived in C?ndalo, a
small port in Florida. Plague broke
out on the sailor's vessel a few days
before it reached Florida, and, as it
was flying the yellow flag when it ran
into C?ndalo, it was put in quarantine
and all leave was forbidden. But it
happened that one of the crew who be
lieved himself to be in the best possi
ble health had a sweetheart in the
town, and he determined to resist or
ders to go and see her.
He managed to steal one of the
ship's boats and got ashore. But it
seemed as if he had risked all for
nothing, for he had not found her
when it became time for him to re
turn to his ship if he wished to escape
detection by his officers. Fate was
playing a hand in his game, however,
for on his way to the spot where he
had moored his boat he ran across his
sweetheart. He kissed her and told
her what he had dared to have one
word with her; and when she heard he
had come from the ship in quarantine
she fled from him in tenor. But she
fled too late; for in the singie kiss her
lover had conveyed the fell disease to
her, even though he was unaware he
The girl died and the disease spread
on the four winds over the town. With
in a terribly brief period more than
two hundred persons in C?ndalo had
died of the disease. Fear seized upon
the townspeople and hundreds of them
fled away from the stricken town,
which at the time of the plague's
holght was little better than a city of
deserted dying.-San Francisco Call.
