duces fir the market has such a wide
range or difference in price as butter, not
even cheese or choice fruit. We see. by
quotations in all the great butter markets
mat the prices of eating butter range all
the way from one dollar to ten cents per
pound, while greasy, cooking butter is
even lower than that; even the packages
in which it is put up, whether lirkins,
pKils, tubs, or rolls, affect the prices for
which it sells, (trains and meats have
but a small range compared to butter;
the difference in the prices of butter is
much greater than the difference in the
cost; hence, it is much more profitable
to make and sell a first-class article than
:t poor one.

The secand plan, although a terror to the
crow, is especially well adapted to fields
subject to the inroads of small birds, and
even chickens. It involves the artificial
hawk made from a large potato and long

can exercise his imitative skill in sticking
he leathers into the potato so that they
resemble the spread wings and tail of the

looking bird of prey can be constructed
from the above simple material. It only
remains to hang the object from a tall

It will be seen from the above figures
that Australia stands next to the I'nited

fresh meat has to cross the equator and
encounter a voyage three or lour times
longer than one from New York to Liv

The Thoma3vilIe Enterprise gives an
interesting review of the progress of
fruit ulture in south Georgia. It was
thought a few yeaisago that that section
was not adapted to the culture of fruit
the section lying too far north for trop
ical fiiiits and tco far simth for and
other kind. A few men, jrominent
among them, Mr. John Staik, refused to
be convinced and commenced a series of
experiments with Tarious fruits, fome
years ago Mr. fjtark set ont several acres
in prajies and proved conclusively that
they coul 1 be successfully and profitably
grown. Others so;n followed hi." example,
and to-day, more irrapi s are raised in

A capital bx)k might be written on
the manufacture of cotton goods in the
south :or exportation. We will give a
few hints to the author of such a work.
The bureau of statistics at Washington
publishes a statement showing that there
were exported during April 1877, 13,4)4,
528 yards of cotton goods of the value of
$l,0r.-,ftfi7 ; being an increase of 3(5 per
cent, over April of last year. This
growing home industry has elements of
great importance to the southern farmer.
To put the industrial problem bluntly,
that all may see the main point why the
operatives who card, spin and weave
cotton should lie near the fields that
produce the staple, we remark that
man is worth twice as much to
produce manure, according to his
weight, as any animal kept on the
farm. Sooner or later, this manure
lactor which renders cheap cotton possi
ble, will control the quettion of cheap
goods, cheap clothing, a high standard of
comfort, and a large foreign trade, based
on skillful agriculture and manu
factures associated with wi-e household
economy. In Georgia, millions of dol
ltrs are yearly expended f jr fertilisers
befcire the growth of the cotton plant and
then cheap production of manure, are
half studied. Tike a man forty years
old as typical of our whole population,
and divide his weight in flesh and bones
by forty. He can have taken only 2 per
cent of his weight a year from his food.
Take an adult swine four years old of the
same weight of the man, and he has ex
tracted from this dung-heap in flesh and
bones, as much in four years as the man
has in forty years. Farmers, study this
problem of abundant manure.

This is a great year for the study of

problem is whether there is any connec

seventeen-year locusts and the mortality
amone the fish in the Delaware river.
In 1SG0, it is stated, the fish in that river
and the ponds throughout the Delaware
valley died in large numbers, and this
year, with the return of the locust, the
piscatory mortality is renewed. There
is a theory that the fish die frm eating
locusts whicn drop into the river, but a
large number of dead fish having been
examined, in only one ot them was a
locust found ; so . that it wculd appear
that the recurrence ot the hsn-all is only
"The Fern World" is the title of a

"folk-lore" of ferns, fern culture, "fern
hunting," etc. It will include descrip
tions or rambles through the combes and
glens of north Devon. Considerable
space will be devoted to the description,
distribution, and culture of British ferns,
and the text will be illustrated through
out by colored lithographs of fern groups,
printed from nature, etc.
DIVISIBILITY OF GOLD.
The divisibility of gold almost sur
passes belief. Mr. A. E. Outerbridge, Jr.,
of the Philadelphia assay office, recently
exhibited before the Franklin institute
some thin films of gold obtained by elec
tric deposition upon copper and after
ward detached. These pieces of gold
leaf were transparent, aud gave a green
color lo transmitted light. Mr. Outer
bridge has thus produced films of gold so
thin that one irrain of the metal would
cover nearly four square feet. This is
ten thousand times thinner than ordinary
writing paper, and 2,7i)S,0of such films
together would only make one inch.
A PENNSYLVANIA INSECT.
There is a general notion that only
tropical countries are infested with ants
that are capable of doing serious damage.
This, it appears, is a mistake. There is
a black "carpenter ant," whose name,
Formim Pcnnsiilconin, indicates its resi
dence, that is capable of effecting much
destruction in woodwork. The Kev. Dr.
McCook has seen a rafter which these
ants had penetrated to an extent of five
or six feet of its length, completely
honey-combing it. The rafter was in
the roof of a porch. The attention of
the Philadelphia academy of sciences
was called to the matter, as it is evident
that such penetration of wooden struc
tures, and especially bridges, might cause
their unexpected fall. Wooden bridges
need at least as frequent and as thorough
inspection as iron structures.
TLANTINO WHITE SKIS ON A BLACK .MAS.
Says the Abbeville, N, C, Medium:
There is a coal black man in our vicinity
who will soon have a stomach covered
with as white democratic skin as ever
grew in Edgefield. This no doubt sounds
both ridiculous and alarming, but we
will explain. Some weeks ago, Dr.
Walter Jlill and Dr. Wallace Bland cut
from the stomach of this negro a huge
tumor weighing many pounds, and upon
the large bare spot left by the operation
they have planted Dumberle.-'s little stars
of skin nipped from their own arms.
These stars have taken root and are
fast, spreading out to meet each other, so
that the black man will soon have a
white stomach outside. Skin is about
all the radicals and negroes have left us,
and to be thus generous with it is cer
tainly very magnanimous.
DEATHS BY ANESTHETICS.
Although deaths during the adminis
tration of an;esthetics are comparatively
a small percentage, yet their total num
ber, if a considerable period of time is
embraced, seem somewhat formidable.
Dr. Charles Anderson recently prepared a
list ot deaths during the use of chloroform
in and near Cincinnati for thirty years
past. He nnds twenty cases, and in the
journal which records this there happens
to be mentioned four other cases of death
by chloroform or ether they being
recent, but not all occurring in this
A USEFUL MILITARY INVENTION.
A very useful invention has been
devised by Mr. J. N. Holmes. It con
sists of a bomb which can be fired a dis-
tance of two miles from thecoast or from
a ship, and is so contrived that it will
float upon the surface of the water and
emit a very iiowetful light for about an
hour. By its use in war the approach of
a hostile Ueet during the night might lie
disclosed, and in time of jeace it could
be employed with advantage in rescuing
crews or vessels stranded in the dartness
or in occasionally warning ships approach
ing too near a dangerous and low-lying
COPPER IN P.IXHiD.
At last it has been apparently proved
that copper is a normal constituent of
the blood, not only ot man, but of the
lower animals. In the case of the blood
of man, the presence of copper might be
thought to be accidental, and introduced
through the use of vessels of that mate
rial, in the prepAratiou of food. But an
analysis of the blood of wild herbivorous
animalsalso discloses copper. It has yet
to lie ascertained whether the copper be
longs to the plasma or to the blood glob
ules, or both, or whether it is introduced
in the food or drink.
Among the recent dispatches relating
to matters connected with the Uur so-
Turkish war there was one stating that
some unprincipled persons bad been
adulterating nour wim gypuuin. ui.
Vohl gives this method for testing the
purity of flonr eo treated: Mix twenty
grammes of the flour with twenty
grammes of potash saltpetre, and having
i i . . i i ; . 1
piaceu me mixture in a piakiuuui vecscri
ignite it with a red-hot platinum wire.
If the flour is pure the melted mass
will dissolve almost entirely in water,
and the solution will give no precipitate
with hydrochloric acid. If there is a
precipitate silicates had been employed
in adulterating the flour. The acidulated
solution should give with barium chlo
ride a slight turbidity, and a decided
precipitate indicates lime of baryta.
A talking machine is said to have been
invented which is able to say " I was
bom in America. I speak all languages,
and I am very pleased to see you. I
thank you for your visit." It has been
humorously suggested that an apparatus
of this kind could be used to announce
the stations to railway passengers. This
service is now performed by brakemen,
and often in a way that makes the names
almost unintelligible. The machine is
said to contain a mechanical reproduc
tion of the human lungs, larynx, glottis
and tongue. 1 1 is operated by a bellows,
and is supplied with a keyboard and
pedals. If the sound can be reproduced,
there would be no difficulty in arranging
the apparatus to run automatically, like
a music box. Imagine a mysterious
voice in each car of a train saying at in
tervals, " the next stop is at New
York ! " In connection with this sub
ject it may be mentioned that Psyche,
the famous automaton chess-player of
London, continues to be a great success,
after about two years of constant exhibi
tion. No one has yet been able to dis
cover the mode by which it is operated.
It is quite commonly supposed that
high mountains possess one advantage
over lower levels for astronomical obser
vations in a dryer and less tremulous air.
But Prof. Henry Draper has tested this
question in the Wahsatch and Rocky
mountains, and finds that the popular
supposition is unfounded. Instead of
the air being better in those regions, it is
probably not so good as at his observatory
on the Hudson. Out of fifteen nights in
the best season of the year, only two
were exceptionally fine. As a rule the
transparency of the atmosphere was
greater and thesteadiness perhaps a little
less than in New York. The Lick ob
servatory, which the endower intended
to place "on a mountain top, might, after
all, do better on the plain. Nevertheless,
it is possible that in the extremely dry
regions of the southern part of our cen
tral area, say in New Mexico, the atmos
pheric conditions may be favorable.
There precipitation is extremely small at
he'ghts under six thousand feet, and the
seven months of winter which would
make observatory work impossible on
the mountains, would not bs encoun

The English language is often a puzzle
to foreigners, and sometimes drives even
an American hotel keeper into a corner,
as for instance in the following experi
ence at the Fifth Avenue hotel, where a
wealthy French guest came to complain
at the office, and was there met by the
gracious Griswold, who rose to explain:
" What for, sare, your garcon not pre

" Y'es, sare. Do I speak Inglis perfait,

Galveston News, S: What is to become
of Mexico when revolution, anarchy and
decay have worked their worst upon her,
must be a question of deep concern to
Americau statesmansbip. Geographical
facts and social and national considera
tions of the highest importance forbid
indifference. There w noevidence what
ever that Mexico, left to depend solely
upon remedial forces within herself, is
capable of self-redemption. From year
to year lor the past hall century, she has
gone from bad to worse. Her history
has been as disastrous as eventful. Since
her independence of Spain she has never
known a period of more than four years
without a revolution, and at one time.

The Horror of Being Losf.
I had been engaged for hours working
my way up a brook on which I had been
told was a capital fishing place, and,
finding an end to navigation, toek to the
land. In making the circuit of a maize
alders impenetrable even to a bear, I lost
the water-course, and in looking for it
crossed a low ridge and fell on another
which ran the other side, and in the op
posite direction from that which I had
left. The reversal of the current was
instantaneous cause of a complete upset
of all my ideas of material things. Ihere
wa3 no reason in the thing, no reasoning
against ft . The points of the com pass had
been as clear in my head as if I saw the
needle, but the moment I found this
ominous stream running the wrong way,
everything was unsettled. The sun was
shining out of the clear heavens, but it
started out of the north. One minute
before I could have taken a bee-line
back to my boat, but the minute after
I had lost faith in every landman, l
was not a novice in woods matters. 1
could follow a trail readily, aud find my
wav in the dark, and know the points of
the compass as well as any trapper in
the country, but now north had become
south, and the labor of my reason would
not persuade my senses that the sun
was not sinking north by east.
I dared not travel by the sun, so firmly
was my fallacy rooted. I knew the
thing at once, and comprehended the
danger. 1 knew that in ten minutes x
would be as mad as any man ever was
with delerium tremens, that I should be
beyond self control or human help. Not
once in three months would a foot pass
within reacn of my voice lrom where 1
was. but that wolves were nearer, I
knew by their abundant footprints in
the wet sand where I had passed. I
knew as well that if I lost my wits in
that moment nothing lay between me
artl eternity but a nameless horror. In
si: my life I can recall no moment of ter
ror like that which I felt gathering on
me in that silent forest. I sat down on
a rotting log, and, covering my face with
my hands, waited until I felt calm nd
self-possessed again. I have no idea how
long it was, but when I arose the sun
had got back into the southwest and I
made up my mind as I walked back to
my boat never to trust myself in a strange
wood again without blazing my path as
1 went along. I might point the moral
of my experience by more than one case
not so fortunate. The most impressive
one I remember is that of an Englishman
who settled in one of the towns border
ing on the Adirondack country, and who,
having been fishing one day in the aut
umn with a neighbor, proposed to go
back the next day and try it alone. He
n:ver returned, and after a day's absence
an expedition set out to hunt him up.
A light snow bad fallen in the night,
and his foot-priuts wera found in one
case crossing the road near the village,
but plunging into the thickets and devi
ating in the most aimless and frenzied
manner, with long strides like those of a
man running and then these even were
lost. The second day after his departure
from home a man answeriug to his
description came to the door of a house
in the adjoining town and asked the way
to the village. His face was haggard,
and he looked wild, the woman said who
answered the door, and before she could
reply he started away, and paced fran
tically across the road into the woods
again, and disappeared. No trace of bim
was ever after found. A friend who
surveyed the county lines of Franklin
county, New York, told me another
more singular case in his experience.
His party were running a line in the
thick woods, and had taken with them a
young man from the city who fancied
camping-out and had joined the gang as
a volunteer. In returning from their
work to camp they missed the blazed
line and proceeded to find their way by
the compass, when it was found that the
compass itself had been lost. None of
the gang were disturbed with worse leara
than having to sleep out that night, save
the novice, who was so fearfully panic
stricken that he became raving mad in
five minutes, aud they were obliged to
bind him and finally carry him to the
camp, the way to which they shortly

Mr. Kvarts and the Jews.
At the solicitation of our American
fellow-citizens professing the Hebrew
religion, Mr. Evarts has instructed the
minister of the United States at Con
stantinople to take such measures of a
practicable nature as he may deem expe
dient in order to prevent the outrages
and hardships inflicted on Israelites
dwelling in the provinces of Turkey.
Unfortunately, as Mr. Evarts observes,
very little can be done in provinces
" under military control" of Circassians,
Bahi-Bazouks and similar upholders of
Ottoman supremacy in eastern Europe.
At the same time, in justice to the
" unimprovable" Turk, it must be ad
mitted that the so-called provinces of the
Turkish empire where Jews suffer most
hardships have long since escaped from
any control or pressure from Constanti
nople. The provinces we allude to aie
Serbia and Roumania, and the word of
anthority goeth not from Constantinople
as far as these countries are concerned
but from Plojesti, in ValIachia, where
the czar of Russia is at present located.
If. therefore, our Jewish fellow-citizens
desire to be of real utility to their breth
ren in the faith dwelling in Roumania
and Serbia, it would be wise to point out
to Secretary Evarts that the word in
season ought to be transmitted to our
representative at St. Petersburg rather
than at Constantinople. The czr of
Russia is eminently a humane and jut
ruler, as his acts testify, and any lepre-
sentation to him on behalf of the perse-
cuted Jews ot Serbia and Roumania ,
would not only receive attention, but
would obtain redress. At the same
time, we take leave to point out to the
American Jews that they can do a great
deal themselves towards alleviating the
lot of their Roumanian and Serbian
brethren. The Jews in America are
numerous and wealthy, and possess cos
mopolitan influence which might be
exercised directly in behalf of the Rou
manian and Serbian Jews. A represen
tation from the representative of the
house of Rothschild in New York to the
Russian minister of finance would possi
bly command as much attention on the
eve of a new loan as the observations of
our minister at St. Petersburg. Accord
ing to the statistics presented to the
board of delegates of American Israelites
at their annual convention, their num
bers in the United States were estimated
at 250,000, and their church property t
$0,000,000. These items must be con
siderably understated at last, as far as
regards the total number of Americans
following the Jewish religion and it
might be useful to themselves, as far as
their religious interests are concerned, to
obtain more accurate returns. As
respects their temporal interests, these
are cared for by the federal government
of the United States, who have never
recognized any distinction between
American citizens as regards religious
belief. American (Paris) Ilegiilei, June

-10.000 How 41
The story of " The Ghouls of Lincoln's
Tomb," as the head-lines called them,
was one ot the most sensational in recent
criminal annals, and the latest develop
ment is far from being the least sensa
tional. Properly to appreciate it, your
readers had best hear recounted again
briefly the events connected with the at
tempted robbery of Lincoln's grave.
Amid the few items of news whieh
found their way into the papers and com
pelled attention on the morning after the
presidential contest last November, was
one which announced the commission
and frustration of an at temp to steal the
remains of Abraham Lincoln out of the
sarcophagus where they repose at the
memorial. Ten days later the would-be
grave-robbers were captured at Chicago,
and in due course they came up for trial,
and were both sent to the state prison
for a year. Their names w.re Jack
Mullins and Jack Huges, two hard char
acters from Chicago, where the former
kept, on West Madison steer, a saloon
called "The Hub," which was re
garded in police circles as the resort
of members of the criminal classes,
burglars and counterfeiters. With them
was associated in planning the job was
one L. C. Swegles, who "gave away"
his pals consistently from the first," and
appears to have been mistiusted as per
sistently by them. He was, indeed, in
the pay of Detective Tyrell, of the
United States, secret service, who em
ployed him originally to learn who were
the frequenters ot the " Hub," and what
criminal enterprises they had on foot.
Hughes, Mullins, and the others, sus
pected that Swegles was " not on the
square," but his character as a horse
thief was vouched for by a detective
attached to the headquarters of the city
police, and he was not long in obtaining
their confidence. They unfolded to him
a plan to carry off and conceal the
remains of President Lincoln and put
them to extravagant ransom, expecting
to receive a reward of $250,000, or there
abouts, from the government and the
memorial association, as well as to secure
the pardon of Ben Boyd, one of the most
noted ot the great western counteneiters,
then and'stul confined in Joliet.
All this Swegles, through his lawyer,
a Mr. Deane, confided to Robert Lincoln,
the president's son ; Leonard Sweet, Lin
coln s old friend; the officers of the
memorial association, ard the secret
service department. He was advised to
maintain relations with the conspirators
and communicate their plans and move
ments from time to time. Llection
night was tbe time pitched upon for the
essay, as the excitement then existing
would attord every cnance to the grave-
robbers to effect their purpose aud
escape without detection. A man was
sent to Springfield to reconnoiter, and
on his reporting that a fourth man would
be needed effectually to do the job,
Swegles induced the others to let him
select the accomplice. The man he
picked out one Brown was as suspi
cious of Swegles as had been the other
two, but finally was induced to the plot.
He left Chicago with them by the nine
o'clock train on Monday night, Novem
ber Gth, but left the cars at a crossing,
after showing himself to Hughes and
Mullens. On election day Hughes and
Swegles visited the cemetery and in
spected the tomb closely, and, returning,
pescribed the arrangements to Mullins.
The marble sarchofagu containing the
casket stands upon a pedestal in the ves
tibule, the body within it being further
inclosed in a leaden coffin and a cedar
case. Mullins produced a big bag, and
explained that if the casket proved too
heavy to be removed, they could drag
out the body, which is embalmed, double
it up, thrust it into the bag and carry it
Meanwhile Detective Tyrell, Elmer
Washburne, chief of the secret service,
and one of the secret service, and a couple
of Pinkerton's men, having had Hughes
and Mullins watched, were aware of their
coming here from Chicago, and followed
by the Tuesday morning train. They
drove out part of the way, then pro
ceeded on foot to Memorial hall, where
the custodian, Mr. Powers, admitted
them. Between the door of the cata
comb containing the sarcophagus, which
looks south, and that of the hall, which
is to the north, there is a distance of
something ever one hundred feet. The
detectives, who were all armed, consid
ered it wise to remain within and give
the robbers no hint of their presence, but
posted a scout in the rear of the cata
comb to give them warning when tht-y
began operations. A bou t n ine the trio arri
vedaud prodeeded to the h ill, into which
they peered to satisfy themselves that
their presence was unsuspected. Swegles
hrst appeared with a dart lantern, and,
looking in, said, " All right ! " the signal
agreed upon with the detectives. Hughes
was also seen and recognized by the hid
den officers. Satisfied that the coast was
clear, the robbers set to work to force
their way into the catacomb, effecting an
entrance after some trouble, and attack
ing the sarcophagus. They pried off
the double lids, which were considerably
injured in the process, and with an ax
and chisel were at work upon the casket,
which had been drawn out about a foot
and somewhat hacked, when their work
The scout placed behind the building
by the detectives had heard the noise,
and going to the hall had whispered a
signal to the concealed officers, but they
did not hear it, and waited some time
longer, then filed out each carrying his
revolver at full-cock. As they did so,
through some inadvertence the hammer
of one of the pistols fell and at the ex
plosion the burglars made off, having a
sufficient start before the ofiBcers could
reach the vault to insure their escape.
On Friday the eighteenth, a strong body
of police raided the "The Hub" and cap
tured Mullins and Hughes, the former
being found behind thenar serving cus
tomers, and the latter sitting outside.
Neither man seemed surprised at his ar
rest, nor was any resistance offered.
Their trial, conviction and sentence
followed in due course.
There did not lack those who con
sidered that injustice had been done, or
only partial justice. The part played
by Swegles was to prominent, he Lad
so forced himself upon the two prisoners,
in despite of their suspicions that he was
not a 'straight" "crooked man," that
it was a grave question whether he had
not possiblv originated the idea of rob
bing the tomb, or been more instrumental
than either of the othars in carrying the
nlan to its conclusion Still another
cla-s went back of Swegles. and regarded
him as but the tool of the detective, who
had "put up" the whole job in order
to obtain notoriety. Whatever hypoth
esis may be correct, there is apparently
only one opinion as to Swegles, and that
not a high one. The unflattering public
sentiment has found expressien in the
publication of the following statement,
which is addressed " To the people of
We undersigned, who constituted the
jury which tried and convicted Hughes
and Mullins of eonspiracy to tod tne
tomb of Abraham Lincoln, believe it to
be our duty to society to state that we
believe, from the evidence presented in
the case, that L. C. Swegles, who claimed
to have discovered (?) the conspiracy
said to have been concocted by Hughes
and Mullins, .was himself the originator
and instigator of the conspiracy, and
used Hughes and Mullins as tools to
carry out his own selfiish ends.
VY e, who fixed the term of imprison
ment for Hughes and Mullins at one
year each, are unanimous in the opinion
that Swegles should have a term of thiee
years iu the state prison. Such would
have been our verdict had he been tried
with Hughes and Mullins. We believe
this statement due to the good of this
state. We do not believe we had done
our duty to society without this state
ment a warning to a scoundrel who at
tempts to coverup his villainies under
the cloak of "detective," and perhaps a
statement which may cause the indict
ment and xnviction of the conspirator.

This declaration that Swegles was the
originator and instigator of the plot, and
thai, tue jurors who visited his accom
plices or instruments would have, had
they an opportunity, imposed a treble
sentence uion him, though it has noth
ing legal about it, cannot fail to exercise
considerable effect upon the grand jury
soon to assemble. Besides it represents,
very truthiully, the opinion of the com
munity. It is quite possible that if
fcwegles is brought to trial and the whole
matter comes out, additional rascality of
the sort which almost invariably accom
panies "detective" work of a sensational
character will be disclosed.
That Bogus (Juarter.
Two or three weeks ago, a woman, who
was Dever known to board a street car
before, took a seat on a Grand River av
enue car and banded the conductor a bo
gus quarter. He returned it, and she
loudly protested that she was the last
person on earth that would have know
ingly carried counterfeit money in her
pocket. Next day she offered it to an
other conductor, and when she returned
it she exclaimed :
"Why, mercy on me! but I was sure
that I burned that bogus thing last
Coming down town yesterday morning
she handed it out to the first conductor,
who tossed it out of the car window and
"Of cour? you don't want to be ar
rested for carrying counterfeit monev
"Bogus! Why, is it possible that I
didn't throw that quarter away !"
She handed him a nickle, rode two
blocks farther, and all of a sudden left
the car to speak to a friend on the walk.
When the car went back the woman was
walking in the middle of the street, bent
almost double, and glancing this way and
that, as if in search of some small object.
She looked up, recognized him, and
called out :
"Say, did any "of you fellers find a
market basket along here ?"
A Striking Experiment.
The old method of showing the com
pound nature of light by the composition
of artificial colors on the lecture table is
to arrange the various colors in a proper
position on a disc, and to revolve the
disc rapidly; but a pure white cannot
be produced by this method since there
is necessarily a partial absorption of the
rays on every part of the disc.
My method is to arrange seven lanterns,
in the first place, so as to project their
several circles of light side by side on a
white screen, then to color each circle by
introducing slides of glass stained to
imitate the several colors of the spectrum
(the proper intensity of color being found
by trial); we thus get seven circles on
the screen colored from red to violet and
arranged side by side. Then by turning
the several lanterns so that tbe projected
circles shall exactly overlap each other,
we get one circle of white light, proving
that the seven colors together make
The same effect can be produced with
five colors only if properly selected ; and
even two, the ordinary cobalt blue and
deep orange, will nearly do. If these
two last be made to partially overlap the
effect is very striking. Corrctjiomlence

The cotton manufacturing capacity of
the country could be safely doubled if
the means of rapid distribution of man
ufactures to all parts of the earth ex
isted. The country now makes up into
cloth only l,4u()i00 bales of its raw cot
ton. It exports from 2,00,otio to 8,000,
000 bales annually, and this larce sur
plus might as well be manufactured here
as anywhere, and, in fact, should be.
There can be no large addition to the
manufacturing resources of the country,
however, until first-class steam lines are
sRirted to South America, Africa, and
tbe East Indie, so as to open up new
markets for American goods. To manu
facture on a much larger scale now,
without a wider market, would be ruin.
With good steam lines, operated in the
interest of the United States, an increase
of production in all parts of the country
could safely and profitably be under
taken, and us many more cotton mills
could be built as exist now, to the great
advantage of the country. Nno York
