When cream foams iu the churn It may

Kurtli Current Jn Tclograh I. lues.
A Mr. bchwendler. who. in thu year
1SU3, was entrusted with the introduction
of a new system of testing telegraph lines
in India, took that opportunity to do his
work so thoroughly as to secure nil the
data necessary for the quantitative deter
mination of the electro-iuotlvo lorco iu
tho line. Over 10,000 determinations
have been mado during the past six years,
and he deduces lrom these tho conclusion
that all tho lines hi India uro affected by
natural currents of electricity. These
currents nro, as It were, negative or cop
per currents (lowing from tho east to the
west. Tho strength ot tho natural cur
rent Is very variable. The variation In
strength nnd direction on parallel lines
ot telegraph, are very uniform. Tho
prevailing direction of tho current Is gen
erally also the direction of tho maximum
currents. Ho considers himself now
fully Justified In establishing an improve
ment of tho system, for the purpose of In
vestigating these currents, nnd his prop
ositions having been urged strongly upon
tho attention of the Indian government
have been favorably received by II.
Coiitnmlnnleil Drinking- Water anil
Dr. Ilaegler, ol Ilasle. gives tho details
of an outbreak of typhoid fever In the '
village ot Latiscn, near iiasle, where tint i
ordinary conditions that hare been Mid I
to govern the disease, such ns tho char
acter ot tho subsoil nod subsoil water. '
were cxtrcinejy unfavorable for the de
velopment of the dheasc, nnd where. In
fact, for a long time, thero had
l)eeii no typhoid. In Atnrust, 57
cases occurred within a space of
nine days, nnd iu nil the houses in the
village except six, while these six drew
their water supply from a source entirely
dlllerent lrom the other". On Investiga
tion It was learned that two mouths pre
vlotialy there had been eases of tvphold iu
a farm house not far from the village,
and that tho dejections of the patients
had been thrown Into a llttlo stream run
ning through tho yard, or Into a ditch
communicating with It; this stream
olned the larger one that supplied the
village. Other excrcmatlous matter had
also been thrown upon the dung heap,
from" which a drain led to the same stream.
Dr. llaeglcr concluded lrom thO'c facts :
1. That tho epidemic of typhoid fever,
iu this Instance, wns the result of drink
ing water contaminated with 'the dejec
tions of typhoid patients.
-2. Hobclfcrvc that trnhold fever tle-

Wo recently had the plea-uro of wit
nessing a series of novel experiments In
the re-earboul7ing of steel, the result be
ing hi every detail highly satl-factory.
The Cardiff Engine Works was the scene
of tho experiment, and tho process of re
cirbonMiig the steel was Introduced by
Mr. D. Drummond, of Swansea. The
material u-ed Is a nearly liquid composi
tion, and Mr. Drummond simply placed
it iu the hand of the foreman ot Messrs
Kllintt & Jeffrey, the proprietors ol tho
worKs, witn instructions now to use it.
We will give one of the experiments. A
common chisel, Iu uu for chipping rivet
heads. was placed iu one of
the smith's lorges and heated until it.was
burnt. Tills was repeated three times,
until It was rendered quite useless lor
any purpose whatever. It was then
placed in the competition, tempered In
the usual way. and ground ou the side of
an anvil, and violently struck with a chip
ping nainmcr. a niece oi eiiiiied imn
was then cut, the edge of the chisel re
maining intact, to the astouUhmcnt of
the onlookers. The composition has the
wonderful property ol making bad steel
