MOTHERS OF GENIUSES.
A Few Great Men Whose Talents Are
Direttly Inherited Gifts.
In proof ot inherited talent it is
said that the mother of Schumann
was endowed with great musical
ability, and that Chopin received
his gut and also his delicate con*
etitution from tho maternal side.
Gounod's mother was exceedingly
fond of both music and' painting,
while the mother of Spohr was an
excellent judge of music and a fine
critic without being herself a mu
Hilton's letters show tender love
and gratitude to his mother, and Ba
leigh credits to his the politeness of
deportment which' ever distinguish
ed him. Goethe pays frequent trib
ute in his writings to the character
and culture of his mother, as does
also the poet Wordsworth. Haydn
dedicated one of his most famous
instrumental compositions to hin
mother, and Sydney Smith believed
that from his came his rare con
versational powers and quick rep
artee. It is well Irnpwn'that Gib
bon's mother was a great reader und
cultivated the same taste and habit
in her son. The mother of Charles
Darwin made herself acquainted
with all branches. ,of natural his
tory and entertained a great fond
ness for animals.
This simple record is in evidence
that maternal talents and tastes are
frequently handed down and trace
able in sons as a direct inheritance.
It is claimed that the gifts of the

A young soldiery in the French
-army who lately volunteered in tho
service rejoices in the distinction of
having what would appear to be one
-of the oddest names on record. The
unlucky lad is named Adolph Maxi
milian E F G, these three letters
-of the alphabet being all he can
boast of as a surname.
The recruiting sergeant severely
reprimanded the young volunteer
for disrespectful joking when ho
spelled out his abbreviated pat
ronymic, and was only convinced
that the appellation, was bona fide
when the lad showed him his pa
It seems, however, that there are
queerer names than E F G. For
"instance, a wine merchant living in
the suburbs of Paris is called Mon
. The name, by the way, is met
with in Normandy, where a iamily
was once known who bore tho name
of iyO, with the title of marquis.
A member of the family, Froncis
d'O, was superintendent of finance
under Henry EH. of France.
One letter patronymics, however,
are not so uncommon as might be
supposed. There are .said to be five
persons in Paris whose names are
of this abbreviated type.
An Animal Curiosity.
There are not very many trans
parent animals,'but studies of two
larval eels, which possess this pecul
iarity and which belong to the .Na
tional mus?um,* seem to show that
among the possible advantages of
being transparent is economy in
personal decoration. In ordinary
opaque animals the color markings
are symmetrical on the two sides of
the body, but-this is not the case
with the transparent eels. Each of
them, whenlo?ked at from one side,
appears to have seven large black
spots arranged at nearly regular in
tervals along the length of its body,
but closer examination shows that
in each case three of the spots are
on the left side and four on the
right and irregularly placed, but in
euch a manner that, on looking
through the body, all seven appear
in a symmetrical row. i

A Sea of Salt.
We are continually hearing of
strange places and strange occupa
tions in various pails of our country,
but one of the strangest sights must
be that afforded by tho great sea of
salt described recently in The Pitts
barg Dispatch, by Jose de Olivares.
Perhaps it would more properly be
called a field of salt, bat as it extends
over a thousand aoreo, and presents
oae smooth white aurfaeo, it looks
like a frozen sea or lake.
The salt is formed from springs of
salt water which are continually rising
to the sarfaoe of the grouad and over
flowing. As the water on the top evap
orates, it leaves a crust of salt vvhioh
sometimes forms to a depth of eight
inchos. The salt fields are just north
of the Mexican boundary, in th? midst
of the Colorado desert, whero the sun
beats down fiercely and causes the
water to evaporate rapidly. The region
is Lwu hundred and sixty-four feet be
low sea level.
The method of obtaining the salt
seems a' strange one, and differs es
sentially from that employed where
the salt is mined after the usual man
ner. A plow is first used. This con
sists of a steel blade or breaker which
is drawn by a steam "dummy" or
engine, managed by two Indian labor
ers. The plow breaks up a broad,
shallow farrow. Other Indian work
ers follow with, hoes and stir these
broken pieces of salt about in the
shallow water which is just beneath,
until they are comparatively clean.
They then pile them up into stacks of
pyramid shape, where they are left to
The idea of washing the salt in
Water to rid it of impurities, soems
incredible, as one would, of course,
expect the salt to melt; but it does
not for the reason that the water be
neath is already Raiuratod with all the
salt it can hold.
After these salt pyramids . have
drained sufficiently they are loaded
on flat cars and taken to the mills
where they are dried and crushed.
After drying thoroughly, the salt is
ground fine, then sifted, and finally
placed in an "aspirator" which is a
machine for drawing off all impure
substances that remain.
This process makes the salt fit for
tablo use. Coarser grades also are
made in the same mill, and from these
the fore'.jn substances are not so care
fully separated, since this salt is used
for mechanioal purposes, and is not
intended to be eaten. .
Iu the mill are Japanese workers
who sew the sacks in which the salt
is to be plaoed. All the workers in
the fields are Indians. The work is
very trying, and it is doubtful if any
but an Indian could be induced to
oarry it on. The son is intensely hot,
and the reflection from the dazzling
white surface is almost unbearable.
Even the Indians have to wear color
ed glasses to proteot their eyes. Then
the air is so charged with salt that it
produces ? constant thirst, which is
hard to quonoh, for there is no dear
sparkling water to be obtained in the
region. What is not actually salt is
warm and disagreeable to the taste.
During the summer months the ther
mometer registers one hundred and
forty degrees for weeks at a time, and
this intense heat causes the water to
exaporale so quickly that the some
field is worked over and over, its crop
of salt never being exhausted.?For
