The Antarctic Regions.
A hundred Etnas would not
produce tho thousandth part of
me indraught, which Maury as
cribes to Antarctic volcanoes
Bsurodly we may say with
Maury, but more signilioantly,
that "volcanoes nre not a me
teorological necessity J"-t MVe
can not say they are," he pro
ceeds, "yet the force and reg
ularity of the winds reruuid us
that their presence there Vonld
not be inconsistent with known
laws." lie believes, ia fact,
that (he sleudy winds im'ay be
partly formed as in indraught
feeding volcanic fires, jit is as
well to remember, whe'ii ideas
so wild are mooted that as
Maury himself "remarks, uwe
know, ocularly, but little more
of Hie topographical features
01 antarctic regions tliaJn we do
of those of the planets,, '-Il
they be continental."! as h
' t '
proceeds, "we may jlndeed,
without any unwarrantable
stretcli of lhf imagination, re
iieve the face of nmure there
with suow clad mounialns, and
diversify (he landscap willi
ilaming volcanoes," tut we
must not forget that this is Ihe
work of imagination, not a the
ory which can be insisted up
on us though it represented n
geographical fact.
While on this subject, how
ever, we can not reirain from
quoting a very striking; juis-
xage Irom a letter by Captain
Howes, of the Southern Cross,
because, although it relates in
reaiily to the phenomena nf nn
Aurora Australia, it presents 11
scene such as we might cm-
wive to arcord wi'h concep
tion of m Antarctic region cov.
ered with volcanoes, ' whose
com Dined action made the
whole continent al times ns
one vast furnace. Apart from
fancies such. as. these,. j,he. de-i-criplioii
is lull ol interest :
"About half-past one' lie
says, -on ihe second of last Sep
teinber, the rare phenomena of
the Aurora Australia manilesl
ed itself in a most magnificent
manner. Ourehip was olTCape
Horn, 111 a violent gale, plung
ing furiously into a heavy sen,
lloo.ling her decks, and some-
limes burying her whole bows
beneath the wave. The heav
ens were as black as death;
not a alar was to be seen when
the brilliant spectacle first ap
peared. I can not describe the
awful grandueur of the seen.;
the heavens gradually changed
from murky blackness till they
became like livid fire,ieflecling
a lurid glowing brilliancy over
everything. The ocean ap
peared like a sea of Vermillion,
lashed into fury by the siorm;
the"wave8 dashing furiously
over our side, ever and anon
rushed lo leeward in crimson
torrents. Our whole ship
sails, t pars, and allseemed to
partaRe of the same ruddy hue?,
they .were as ir lighted up by
some terrible conflagration
Taking all together, the howl
ing, shrieking storm, tho noble
idiip plunging fearlessly te
neat h the crimson crested
waves, the furious equalls of
hail, siiOT and sleet driving
over the vessel and falling to
leeward in ruddy showers the
mysterious balls of electric fire
resting on our must-heads,
yard-arms, etc., and above all,
the awlul sublimity of the
heavens, through which cor
ruscations of auroral light
would o!t en shoot in spiral
streaks and with meteoric bril
liancy, altogether presented a
scene of grandeur and sublim
ity surpassing tho wildest
dreams of fancy."
The enormous icebprgs
which come out the Antarctic
seas suggest interesting con
elusions respecting regions as
yet unexplored. This will be
better understood when it is
remembered thai all 'he larger
afrd loftier icebergs have in re
ality had their origin in vast
glaciers. Vast masses of ice
are formed, indeed, in the open
sea. Each winter the seas
rhich have been open during
the summer months (Decem
ber, January and February) are
covered over with ice of enor
mous thickness, and when sum
mer returns the ice fields thus
formed are broken up, and the
fragments, borne tnrainst each
other during storms, become
piled in'o gigantic masses. But
the aglomerations thus formed,
vast though they be, are far
exceeded by the Irue icebergs.
'Among the drifting masses
ol Halt sea-ice" says Tynaall,
"vaster masses sail, which
spring from a totally different
source. These are the icebergs
of the polar seas, they rise
3ometimes to an elevation of
hundreds ol feet above the wa
ter, w bile the height of ice sub
merged is about seven times
that seen above." What is
their origin?" ha proceeds,
speaking vl those met with in
the northern seas. 'The Arc
tic glaciers.' From the moun
tain, in the interior the indu
rated SH0.VS slide into ihe val
leys and fill them with ice.
Tne glaciers thus formed move,
like the Swiss ones, incessant ly
downward. But Ihe Arctic
glaciers reach the sea, and cu
ter 11, ol ten plowing up its bot
tom into submarine moraines
Undermined by the lapping 01
the waves and unable to resist
the strain imposed by their
own weight, they break ucrost,
and discharge vast masses into
he oce;in. Some of these run
aground on the adjacent chore?-,
and often iiiiiiitain themselves
lor years, others escape to be
finally dissolved in the wattrs
of the ocean."
Dio Lewis' Advice to a Cold-
Footed Lady.
Madame, allow me to pre
scribe for you. I have had a
long experience in the man
agement of delicate women,
and belive I can give you some
important advice. For the
present I proscribe only for
your leer.
1st. Procure a quanllty of
woolen stockings not such as
you buy at the stores under the
name of lambs' wool, that you
can read a paper through, but
the kind that. your Aunt Jeru
sha in the country knits for
you, thick as a board, that will
keep your feet dry and warm
in spite of wind and weather.
2.1. If you want lo be really
thorough, change them every
morning, hanging the frssh
ones by Ihe fire during the
night.
3d procure thick calf skin
boots, double uppers and triple
soles, and wear Ihern from the
first of October till Ihe first of
May Make frequent applica
lions of some go id oil black
ing.
4'h. Avoid rubbers altogeth
er, except a pair of large rub
ber boots, which may be worn
for a little time through snow
drifts or a flod of water.
Bth. Hold the bottoms of
your feet in cold water half an
innh deep, just before going to
bed, two or three minnte9, and
then rub them hard with rough
towels and your naked hanK
6th. ftow, madam, go out
frequently in all weather, and
believe me, not only will your
feet enjoy a good circulation,
but as a consequence nf Ihe
good circulation in the lower
extremities, your head will be
relieved ot all its fullness and
your heart of its .palpitations.
Your complexion will be great
ly improved and your health
made better in every respect.
The defense of a gentleman
who had deprived his neighbor
of his turkey and roasted
it was that he found it on his
fence, and seized it in ptyment
for rent of the fence.
Amphibious Wouders in Chicago.
The Chicago Times publishes
this mo'nlng a long and cir
cumstantial statement of an
extraordinary experiment al
leged to have been made by
an ex-surgeon of the Prussian
army, named Loon Schultz,
now residing in Miis city, by
which he has demonstrated
the ability not only of his dog,
but ot his infant son, to live
and move under water with as
lit 1 1 a apparent inconvenience
as is experienced by amphibia.
The writer asserts that he
has himself seen the boy, now
scarcely six months old, enter
a large bath tub fitted up es
pecially for the purpose, and
diving lo the bottom, remain
there for several minutes, pick
ing np bits of candy thrown
into the water by the father.
Thf dog appears, from the
account given, to be scarcely
the equal of the child in his
amphibious acquirements, not
withstanding the fact that
Schultz, with commendable
consideration, began his expe-
riments with the canine. This
however, may have been due
to the accidental priority of
the birth of the latter. The
mother of the boy, il is stated
is not at nil pleased with the
experiment upon her offspring.
and expressed a desire that the
authorities should put a stop to
it.

Celery as a Nervine.
A correspondent of the
Practical Farmer says:
"I have known many men
and women, too, who, from va
rious causes had become so af
fected with nervousness, that
when they stretched out their
hands they shook like aspen
leaves on a windy day; and by
a daily moderate use of blanch
ed foot-stalks of the celery
leaves as salad, they become
as strong and steady in limbs
as other people. 1 have known
others so very nervous that the
least annoyance put them in a
state of agitationwho were in
almost constant perplexity and
ferr, and who were effectual ly
cured by a daily m .derate use
of blanched celery as a salad
at meal times. 1 have known
others to be cured by using
celery for palpitation of the
heart.
Ir is well known that leath'
er articles kept in etables,
fOm become brittle in conse
quence of ammoaiacal exhala
tions, which affect both har
ness hanging up in such locali
ties and the shoes ot those
who frequeut them. The usual
applications of grease are not
always sufficient to meet this
difficulty; but it is said that by
adding to them a small quanti
ty of glycerine the leather will
be kept continually in a soft
and pliable condition,

To Remove Pimples on the

For the benefit ol those who

been, with pimples on the face.
so mortifying and destructive
to good looKs,l would say that
bathing the faca at M.iim.
with a strong solution of borax
and water is an excellent rem
edy. Bathe as frequently as
you please with it; It is safe
and is sure to dispel and pre
vent pimples from coming

raucn benefit from it that I

A Home-Made Shawl.
II you have an old broch'e
shawl, buy a piece ot merino
a little larger than the center
of the shawl and baste it oh
the wrong side. Then, with a
pair of scissors, cat carefully
around each of the figures that
extend into the center, leaving
a seam's width of the cloth on
the figures. Turn this in and
fell neatly to the merino; then,
with fine silk run the merino
around the edges, and you
have a seawl far handsomer
than the real article, the yel
low lined, fashionable Paisley
shawl.
Coal Ashes—A Profitable Use
That Can be Made of Them.
In the growing of potatoes,
c )l ashes have been found ex
ceedingly beneficial. Mixed
vith manure, or with rich soil
i i the hill, they serve to make
fine tubers. If a thin layer of
ashes be spread over the
ground, after the crop ceases
to be tended, or is "laid by,"
tho soil underneath is kept;
cool and moist, both conditions
being favorable to the healthy
growth of the plant, and the
production oi a plenty of po-tttots.
