In all diseases affecting these organs,
whether they secret too much or too little

Important progress has recently been
made in enabling Englishwomen to ob

leadine colleges and universities had
opened their doors to women students.
but none of the hospitals would permit
the women to enter for clinical instruc
tion. Nature announces that the Royal
Free hospital in Gray's Inn road has at
last granted this privilege. It is said to
have come just in time to prevent the
breaking up ot the London school of med
icine for women. The trustees of that
school had resolved to close it unless this
concession could be obtained, to rec
ommend the pupils to seek instruction
elsewhere than in England.
a he neglect 01 (Japt. Wares to issue
lime-juice rations to the sledge parties
of the arctic expedition is still the theme
of much discussion in the Enerlish news
papers. The Sanitary Record approves
the opinion of Surgeon Colan, that if
anythmg should have been omitted, the
rum and not the lime-juice should have
been left behind. Capt. Nares admits
that in a future case of the kind he
would "certainly so modify the arrange
ments as to admit ef sending lime-juice."
Punch takes a hand in the controversy,
with the su great ion that an agreeable
way to " modify the arrangements "
would be to send both the rum and the
lime-juice, with a little sugar. The re

Prof. Polttzek recently put before
the Medical society of the Vienna Gar
rison some new prooz of the use of both
ears in determining the direction of
sound. People who are deaf in one ear
make strange mistakes when hunting, as
they are apt to suppose that any sound
comes from the direction toward which
the ear they hear with may happen to be
turned. A neat little experiment,eaily
tried, is devised by Prof. Politzer.
Above the top of the head of a person
whose eyes re bandaged a watch, tick
ing loudly, is to be passed. The blind
folded person will be unable to say cer
tainly whether the watch is above, be
fore, or behind the top of his head.
When one of his ears is closed, the
watch seems to him to be nearest to the
other ear, and this impression will still
be perceptible even though the bandage
be removed from his eyes. The source
of sound in ia general referred to a point
on the right or left, acocrding aa either
ear hears most loudly.
There has been much said recently
about the powers of potassium xanthate
as an antiseptic. A correspondent ef the
Boston Journal of Chemistry makes
some remarkable statements concerning
this salt. New wine was treated with it,
and borne months afterward was found
to possess its original taste and sweet
ness. The wine was then "druok in.
considerable auantitv bv different car-
sons without the slightest injurious effect
following." buch a declaration as to
any wine may strike believers in total
abstinence with surprise. P otasaium
xanthate is said to be easily and cheaply
prepared ; only small quantities need be
used, and no harm seems likely to ensue
from taking it, except in the few cases
of disease where any potassium salt
would have a bad effect. Vegetable
juices and saps clarified by means of a
dmail addition ot this salt have remained

She's a baby, you see. to me now,

Well, long about bavin' she told me
Her apron half o'er her cheek
That a lad from the town came a courtin.
" Might she see hi in ?" I tried not to speak,
But t couldn't keep still tad I told her
I'd shoct him as quick as a hound
If he ever come near her to court her
When me and my gun was around.
She looked kind o' pitiful at me;
' Oh! father, I've promised," she said.
And left me. Along through the orchard
I saw tho bent-down yaller head
I saw her go wanderin' further
I knew well enough where she went.
For her mother lies buried off yonder
The way that her footsteps were bent.
An' she come when the dew was a fallin',

But out at bor own Mttte window
A pililul sobbin' I beard.
Well, after that, all through the summer,

And took my old hsnd in her own.
Her face was as red as the roses,

That her mind was maue op to the weddln',
But she hadn t the courage, I guess.
Well, sir, when I called in the mornin'.
No sleepy " Yes, father," I hear ;
I opened the door of bar chamber.

well, then: An amateur painter, who
was repairing his nouse, told a friend
that he had been struck by a bright no
tion. 1 he ceiling ot his library was very
dirty, so he purposed to whitewash it,
and then paint upon it a picture repre
senting Apelloand the nine muses. The
friend, who had his own views as to the
proficiency of the amateur, supcested as
an improvement, that the ceiling should
be painted first, and whitewashed after
Ut my second school, which was aim
ply a day school, and which I entered at
the age of ten, 1 can safely say tbat it
was apparently designed to answer the
purpose of the whitewash in the above
story, supposing the advice of the friend
to have been accurately followed. What
ever we had been taught at my prepara
tory school, the second school appeared
to have been framed with the express
purpose of washing out; and in this c&se
the picture to be obliterated was not
only not bad, but very good. I am
bound, however, injustice to say, that I
and my fellow-pupils bad tolerable mem

more than fifty years, unless one takes
great pains to secure accuracy. Though
we made no progress, we made a great
show of making progress; and that was
something to the credit of JJr. baunders,
our reverend pneeptor. A diienting
minister of considerable repute m a
suburb of London, in the immediate
vicinity of that inhabited by Mr. Jack

merrily of the achievements of learning

labor it only his method of instruction
was conscientiously followed. What
that method was, I never found out;
and although, with two or three others,
I was indubitably at the top of the school,

ments of the English tongue in a school

pear excessive: and I must-own that.
having been taught under Mrs. Jackson
to spell quite as correctly as now, I was
not a little surprised when I was re
quested to learn a column of three sylla
bles in an English spelling book. In
deed, I was dissatisfied with the proceed
ing, and had the audacity to ask Dr.
Saunders whether we were not going to
do any I -a tin that afternoon. He waa
openly displeased with the question,
and told me that if I liked it I might
pursue my Latin at once, instead of get
ting money by sticking to the spelling
book. The appeal to the pocket implied
that it we had gone through our three
syllables in a satisfactory manner we
might have each received a penny.
I he employment 01 pence as stimu
lants to the acquisition of a majtterv
over the difficulties of the Latin acci

would frequently burst into the room,
arresting attention by smartly striking
his dek with his cane and cheerfully
crying out :
" Boys, boys, bear! Of a most blue pig
in 'a most green held I lhe hrat who
will turn that into Latin shall receive a
Responsive shouts were heard on all
sides, and the first shouter, if correct,
duly received his penny, which was eu
phemistically called " merit money."
i nave near to explain mat in spite 01
spasmodic manifestations, the genial
offer of merit money was part of a sys
tem. As quarter-day approached,
Trowel, a very big boy, appointed to the
office by tbe dCor, would walk around
the achwl room, arnud with a -pencil
and a slip of paper, and would ask the
pupils questions as to the extra items to
be insterted in the bill ; how many books
they had had, and so on. Among the
questions was one relating to tbe proba
ble amount of merit meney. The boy,
who had received his rxnny at very ir
regular intervals, had not the slightest
notion ot the subject; but theever ready
Trowel would assist his memery by say
ing; "Well, half a crown won't be too
much will it?" The boy thought not :
and Trowel pursued his quest elsewhere,
sometimes eliciting live shillings as the
possible figure. Certain 1 am that the
aggregate number of pence received by
any one boy during any one quarter
never approached half a crown.
ben 1 say that we seemingly did
learn Greek under the auspices ot Dr.
Saunders, some readers may be of opinion
that I contradict myself. But the
opinion will cease when they learn what
an utter sham our Greek was. A Scotch
element, from some unknown reason or
other, prevailed in the school. We had
Dalzel's Greek and Ruddiman's Latin
grammar, while our co temporaries looked
up te Eton all had enough when com
pared to the elementary books which, in
obedience to a German impulse, are con
stantly published now. We had, also,
Dalzel's "Analecta Minora" made up ot
presumably easy Greek experts; butthe
crack book was a Glasgow edition uf An
I suppose this book is still in vogue on
the other side of the Tweed ; for when
ever I have referred to it in the course
of conversation with north-country
friends, I have invariably found that
they recognized the article. It was a
very thin volume, clad in that irrepressi
ble sheepskin which was once regarded
as the proper clothing for spelling books
and "tutors' assistants," and at the bot
tom of each page was a literal prose
translation of the Greek above.
Now, only imagine two years of Greek

But with our Latin, of course, we did
something. Did we 7 As lar as I my
self am concerned, I can safely report
that, if the Greek I learned was little,
the Latin was still less. I had learned
no Greek at Mrs. Jackson's, and I will
do Dr. Saunders the justice to say that
under him I did learn the alphabet ; but
as for Latin, all I could do was to keep
up the amount I had brought with me
from the preparatory establishment. In
cultivating the language of Cicero to
whom, be it remarked, not the slightest
allusion waa ever made we were bound
tight to that eminent classic Eutropius,
with occasional deviations into the sec
ond book of Virgil's Eneid, in which
latter region we were most liberally as
All respect to Eutropius 1 Within the
last few years he has shot up into some
thing like celebrity as the historian who,
in the most lucid manner, recorded the
foundation of the Dacian colony by Tra
jan, to which the Roumanians trace their
origin; and ot late the Danubian pro
vinces have figured among the threads
which are entangled in that great knot,
the eastern question, cut halt a cen
tury ago there were no Roumanians
bearing that name, and the vouth
of twelve must have been a marvel of
geographical erudition if he knew any
thing about Moldavia and Wallachiam
connection with ancient history. The
fact was, Eutropius, still known as very
useful in his way, is remarkably easy,
and was made even easier by the addi
tion of an ordo; that is to say, an ar
rangement of the Latin words in English
order, placed under the proper text, but
but the ordo, and this, be it repeated,
was our crack book. There was a vague
tradition that somebody had once
studied Cornelius Nepos; but I Bet that
down among the myths ot the place.
Manv books were not purchased; but,
thanks to the financial genius that per
vaded the establishment, and which, I
think, was embodied in the person of
Trowel, some of those that were sold
must have fetched high prices. The
boys, as a rule, were of that happv-go-lucky
kind who, when they quit school,
do not care to be burdened with remi
niscences, but leave their books behind
them. In that case the volumes were in
variably sold over again ; and he was a
lucky youth, on the fly-leaf of whose
Eutropius the name of a former school
fellow was not inscribed.
There are many worthy neonle now
living who are of opinion tnat, at our
"great schools," too much time is ex
pended on the dead languages; and if
they have followed me to this point they
are probably admiring Dr. Saunders for
the quantity of sound, useful knowledge
that he diffuses while thus lightly skim
ming over the surface ot Ureek and
Latin. If so, they are egregiously mis
taken. If the reverend doctor aspired
to anything besides the reputation ot a
popular preacher, it was to the character
ot a promulgator ot classical lore. iNo
head master at Eton or Harrow, in the
good old days, had stronger views in this
matter than he. We all, indeed, learned
writing and arithmetic under the guid
ance of an authorized assistant, but when
some ill-fated wretch was compelled, at
the request of his ignoble parents, to
solve a lew problems in Bonnycastle's
Geometry, I well recollect with what
contempt the pursuit was regarded by
his fellows. Geometry was all very well
for a future carpenter, but what possible
interest could be taken in it by any one
who aspired to the character ol a gentle
man ? Of course the vulgar science fell
into the province of the assistant, for
never would the august Dr. Saunders
been seen with a pair of base mechanical
compasses in his hands. Did they think
highly of mathematics at Cambridge?
If so, so mach the worse for Cambridge.
liut tbe rovai road to t rench discov
ered by lie v. Dr. Saunders was a n aster-
piece. Two of us were placed side
by side at a desk, with an old-fashioned
French novel (warranted harmless) ly
ing before us. This we were expected
simply to puzzle out together, without
being subject to any examination, either
by the doctor, or by any other third
party. That, in this irresponsible posi
tion we ever looked at the novel at all is
to me a matter for marvel, but, moft as
suredly, we did so; though, it must be
owned, the narrative was frequently in
terrupted by conversation on our own
private affairs. One one occasion, the
illicit discourse was interrupted by the
doctor, who, with considerable ingen
uity, had contrived to place bis bead,
unobserved, between ours, and harshly
commented on our abuse of the trust
with which we were so handsomely and
so unacademically honored. We mildly
pleaded that the novel was "dry," and
wonder ot wondtrt! when we re
turned to the school-room after the half
hoursnent in the play-ground habitually
conceded to the boys in the course of a
day, which lasted from about half-past
nine till one, our plea was thought to be
feasible, and the triumphant doctor
placed before our eyes the more amus
ing "Hermann, of Unna," a work trans
lated from the German, and ef which an
English version was eagerly read at the
time when Mrs. Anne Radcliffe was at
thn heiirhth of her DODuIaritv. I am
able to affirm that we did find this book
more entertaining than its predecessor.
On what ground.'with our very imper
fect mastery over the French tongue,
we found one book more amusing than
another, I can't conjecture.
Even our studiei of the vernacular
were sometimes pursued after laiseg-aler
fashion, which scarcely accorded with
the importance attached to them. Dr.
Saunders bad an aged father-in-law, who
had cut off whatever communication
was left between himself and the other
world by taking strong and frequent
pinches of coarse rappee, and this re
spectable but somewhat dingy gentle
man was occasionally trusted with the
superintendence of a body of readers.
One day, I observed from a distance
that the boys, who were ostensibly read
ing by turn Goldsmith's "Abridged His
tory of Rome," were all shaking with
laughter, which they scarcely attempted
to suppress, but which was utterly un
noticed by their auditor. What could
it mean ? To my delight I was sum
moned to take a place in the class, and
the boy whom 1 found next to me im
mediately solved the mystery by whim
pering into my ear
"Such funl Whenever a word ends
with 'ing,' say 'ink' instead. We are all
doing it, and he don't find it out."
VOL. XXII. NO. 42.
entered at once into the scheme, which
was, indeed, productive of much amuse
ment. When we had to utter such
words as 'approachink," or "consider
ink," the mirth was mild; but when it
tell to the lot of one fortunate youth to
state that Tarquin was "Kink" of Rome,
there was almost a roar. Still our ex
cellent old gentleman never discovered
that anything abnormal had occurred;
and, when we were dismissed, no doubt
that he confessed, in his inward heart,
like England in the old a song, "that
every man that day had done his duty."
As might be supposed, corporal pun
ishment was not much in vogue at a
school so extraordinarily lax in discip
line. What would have been the fate of
the "kinkmaker" under the rule of
Mrs. Jackson, I dread to conjecture.
But the learned doctor did not wholly
ignore the use of the cane, tnougu n
might be observed that this was regu
lated rather by the state of the dector s
own temper than by the state of a boy's
delinquency. Une peculiarity showed at
least that he had studied his Roman his
tory to some advantage, and had taken
the elder Brutus for his model. Among
the pupils were his two sons; and if ever
ine cane w? in requisition wuu ex
ceptional vigor, what clouds of dust rose

If we chosen few who stood at the
head of the classical scholar, had been
passed into the first part of the Eneid,
we should have been reminded ot the il
lustrious Trojan concealed in a cloud by
his divine mother. But we knew of no
book but the second.
All things considered, I am of opinien
that, it any of the pupils at the academy
which I have tried to describe, and of
which I saw the end, are alive now, they
still look back with a kindly feeling upon
the figure of Dr. Maunders himself, ills
notions of instruction were detestable;
but. in spite of occasional outbursts of
anger, he was essentially a good-natured,
kindly man, endowed with much native
humor; and, in his most cheerful moods,
he loved to tell droll stories that would
make the benches rock with laughter.
And as for his gloomier moments, it
must be remembered that he had a very
large family, and that he was Very poor.

In this column in the Tribune of
March 3, a summary was given of Prof.
Proctor's arguments assigning a great
depth to the atmosphere of the major
planets. Among the evidences adduced
it was mentioned that a satellite occul
ted by the edge of one ef these planets
has reappeared brieffly just after conceal
ment. Quite recently a remarkable ad
dition has been made to this class of evi
dence. Mr. Todd aiid bis assistant, Mr.
Ringwood. using an eight-inch telescope
in the observatory at Adelaide, Austra
lia, have separately and more than once
observed that a satellite of Jupiter, after
passing behind th edge of the planet's
disk, was distinctly visible being viewed
through the planet for about two minutes
before being finally concealed. The ver
tical depth within the apparent edge of
tbe planet at which the satellite was
seen can not be estimated at less than
2,000 miles. It seems likely tbat tke
atmosphere of Jupiter may be 6,000 or
7,000 miles deep; some estimates exceed
even these figures. A notion of such an
atmosphere Is given by the statement
that a globe of the size of this earth,

cination, the experience ef a small-pox
hospital at Homerton, England, may be
cited. A lot of new servants ( nurses i
were engaged, of whom twenty-seven had
Ereviously had ,smalI-pox, twenty-eight
ad been revaccinated, and one had not
been vaccinated since childhood. The
one last referred to turned out to be the
only one in tbe lot who contracted small
pox in tbe hospital service. In a report
to the Metropolitan District asylum
board, it is stated that of 14,800 small
pox cases in the London hospital only
four were well authenticated instances
where revaccination had been properly
performed, and the four were light at
tacks ot the disease. Of three hundred
hospital attendants, the only sunerers
from small-pox and they were few
were those whose revaccination had been
neglected, including one case ol a nurse
whn hart previously uu Buiaii-i-v, uiu
caught it again.
Those who fear the destruction of our
forests resulting from tie demand for
hemlock bark, will take comfoit in the
success ol attempts to ootain muuiu
irom other sources. It has been esti
mated that ene cord of hemlock bark
produces one barrel of good tannin ex
tract, worth 120. It is now found that
one cord of alder will produce the same
amount ; and one ton of sweet fern rives
of the best tann in $22 worth, besides a
value of $7.50 in an inferior kind. There
is said to be considerable activity in
Hancock county, Me., in the new indus
try of extracting tannin from sweet tern.
