Tultercular Disease Among Milch Cows.
In a report recently addressed to the
town conned of Hull, Dr. Mason, medical
officer of health for the borough, expresses
himself very strongly as to the results
which may follow on the consumption of
milk from tuberculous cows. His atten
tion having oeen drawn to the fact of
tuberculosis among milch cows ho visited
a dairy, and having the support of a
veterinary surgeon to the effect that the
disease did actually exist in a cow, he
gave instructions to the proprietor not to 'i
sell the milk for food and obtained [
samples of the milk for microscopical and j
chemical examination; the cow was also
.kept under observation. The sputum j
was found to contain, tubercular bacilli,
and pus ceils were visible in the milk.
The milk,' it is stated, was peculiar in con-!
taming a much larger proportion of fatty I
matter than is contained in healthy-milk.
? The cow was finally purchased by Dr.J
Mason for 50 shillings;, she-wns in an-j
emaciated condition, and when slaught- ;
ered tubercles 1 were found. The dura
mater and lungs were in ah advanced
condition' of tuberculosis, as' were' also
the liver and some glands. Dr. . Mason, j
having detailed thess.facts, goes on to as-1
serf that bovine tuberculosis is an infec- j
j tious disease/ which can be transmitted I
' "by the Ingestion and inoculation of flesh j
and ihilk of a tuberculous beast. Cows
affected with tuberculosis are", he" alleges, I
generally good milkers. The disease, he i
states, is hereditary,, and transmissible to j
the human species through the milk and'
flesh, should these articles be uncooked or
insufficiently cooked.?London Lancet.
"Wonderful Effect* o':' the Pyrophore.
At a recent meeting of the Academy of
Sciences, at Paris,' a-plate half filled with
water, in which Were half a dozen insects
about an inch in length, which shone like
diamonds, although the room was filled
with Bunshine, was paused around among
the members. These insects had been
brought from Mexico, where they are to
be found In the forests. Then: scientific
name is the pyrophore; and, as none had
ever been seen before in Europe, they
created quite a sensation. The light rc- j
semblcs that of a glow worm or a Are fly,
although as much more brilUant and in
| tense as an electric lamp surpasses a wax
taper in its power of illumination. When
the light begins to fade, it can be made as
brilliant as before by shaking the insect
I or dipping it in water. ' ?
I It is said the Indians of Mexico use
them for a light at night, as a few will
suffice to illuminate an entire room.
"When they are walking at night, they
put one on each foot, so that they can be
sure of their way, and also that they
do not step upon any venomous snake or
reptile with which the tropical forests
abound. The Mexican ladies buy them
of the Indians, and inclose them in a
transparent bag, which they wear in their
hair or at the neck. The effect is very
beautiful, especially when several are
worn; and, as the Indians- sell them for a
few cents a dozen, they are within , the
reach of every fair. one. They are fed on

..A "localising Scnso" of' Emancipation;
j Aman of letters in New York was un
der contract with a pubb'sher to write'
about 86,000 words'. He had prepared
himself carefully for the task, but the
contemplation of its manual labor tired
him in advance. H& went to a type
writer's office down-town, where three or
four industrious girls were earning their
living, and learned that he could dictate
to one of them at the rate of from L?00 to
t.OOO words an hour, by paying 4 cents per
;00 words. The noise of the.clicking ma
chines at first threatened to disturb ids
efforts at original composition, but before
ho had worked half an hour he was used
to it. The business of composing and
dictating the 30,000 words occupied about
twenty hours, or five or six days of three
or four hours each. At the end of each
sitting he left the office with the com
pleted manuscript in his hand. There
suit was accompLihcd without fatigue,
and its quality, he says, was unusually
good?for him. He further testifies that,
for the first time in his life, he has a
"realizing sense" of what emancipation is.

When M?ns, and Mme. Vignaux werft
traveling by Pullman car from New York
to Chicago the madame met with a little
accident. A bottle containing eyewater
(it could not have been cosmetique, for
she uses none) was broken, and to pre
serve the liquid M. Vignaux poured it
into an empty champagne bottle, and
placed tho bottle back in the basket. At
night the porter volunteered to take care
of the champagne, and with messleur's
consent carried it away. In the morning
it was returned, but the bottle which had
contained the eyewater was empty. When
the porter appeared he could with diffi

I .THE HORSE OF THE MOUNTAINS..
j The "Wild Steed of tho West and H?j
Habits?"Boss of tho Herd."
When I speak of a wild horse, you will
understand that the word "wild" implies
its full meaning, for certainly no animal
I in existence is so thoroughly unapproach
| able. Their superior intellect to other
; animals when partly bred to good stock,
j their faculties of * ? -.ling, seeing
! and smelling, couj' with their
fleetuess and courage und their ability
to stand days and weeks of running,
make them the most difficult of animals
to capture. Confining'thcniselves almost
entirely to the inaccessible mountains,
only coming' down to water 'once a day;
makes it almost impossible to follow,
much less capture them, and when a band
or a portion of a-, band goes wild it is'
j rarely in these days that tho owner ever,
tries to recapture them,' knowing full-'
[ well that it nearly takes h?rse for horse;
in the.business, and the wild horse once'
captured has been so' run down and
abused to bring him into subjection that
he.is.hardly worth the success.
THE LEADER OF THE HERD.
. "With the wild horses a stallion i? at the
head, and the leader of eve?yherd, hav
ing such full control over them that no
band of cowboys are able to drive a band
of horses so fast or well as a stallion cam''
All in the band are so thoroughly afraid
of him. they keep in a hunch, and their
speed is gauged by his own, he running
behind with his head low, scarcely above
the ground. He advances quickly on the
hindermost ones/giving them a sharp bite
on the rump, thereby giving them
to.' understand they must keep
up. Should one torn out he fol
lows him, much after the fashion of the
shepherd dog, and runs him back. Until
his band are out of sight in the mount
ains he keeps this up. Here they seem to
understand that he can not follow, them
all, and they scatter in all directions, in
ravines, canyons and inaccessible places,
so that when the rider arrives at the place
he last saw them (usually around some
sharp point or on some high peak) he is
mortified to find his own horse almost ex
hausted aud his herd so scattered (prop
ably only two or three in sight) that he
gives up the chase in disgust.
It is surprisiug how easily and thor
oughly domestic horses go wild under the
influence of these wild stallions. Many is
the.emigrant or horse-raiser who has gone
to bed at night full of confidence and
oftcn.pride at the condition and numbers
of his stock, only to wake up in the morn
ing to find nothing left but the one horse

fleeing animals, driven or coaxed away by
these wild horses?gone, and forever. I
recall to mind now an acquaintance of
mine in Nevada, one Joseph Gil
bert, who lived in Reese River
valley, in Louder county, who took
a pride in the quality and quantity
of his horses. His herd numbered about 500
head, and "was generaUy conceded to be
the best in that section. Joe was in fine
circumstances, and bore the reputation of
being well off and nn excellent man, but
somehow a band of wUd horses began to
priey.upon his herd, finally securing to
?themselves a beautiful staUion recently
purchased by Joe at an expense of $1,000.
?After his capture Joe's herd was of short
?duration, as with the assistance of this
stallion they nearly or quite all went
wild,, and though rewards of $5, and

injured. Being, however, an old-timer,
he stood his ground, teUing his wife to
keep continually behind him. On came
tho infuriated beast, head down, ears
back and mouth open, to within a few
paces of Blossom, who, at this critical
moment, began to swing his arms in the
manner done when throwing a lasso. This
recalled to Iiis horseship the unmerciful
and uncontrollable character of these
ropes when once in their fold, and fearing
his own captivity, he stopped on his
charge, but continually circling around
just out of reuch of a rope, he endeavored
to scare his enemies away.
Blossom kept swinging his arm and
yeRing constantly, working toward his
own horses, unt? flnaUy he reached them.
Fortunately they were the gentlest pos
sible, and not yet under the influence of
their wild companions.
Assisting his wife to mount one, he
mounted the other, and as he started back
to camp the stallion saw his efforts were
hopeless and went back to his w?d herd
in the distance, assisted by the two loads
of small shot before mentioned. Had
Blossom, when first attacked, shot this
horse aud failed to kUl him, as he did
after being mounted, he would undoubt

A Komantlc Lotc Story from Venice,
A romantic story comes to us from Ven
ice. A young Englishman appeared every
morning in the tobacco divan of Sig.
Alborti, bought the most expensive cigars,
gave presents to the beautiful shop-girl,
and, so far as his faulty command of the
Italian tongue aUowed, paid assiduous
court to her. Subsequently he presented
her with his visiting card, on which was
engraved Lord Rodney. He told her that
he was staying at the Grand hotel, had
hired the entire first etago, and was dying
for love of her. He asked her to be his
wife, but wished that the marriage should
be performed secretly and immediately,
because he feared that if his aristocratic
kinsfolk in England gained any knowl
edge of his intentions they would move
heaven and earth to hinder the union.
The young lady told the story to her
employer, and Sig. Alberti prudently
enough went to the Grand hotel, made
Inquiries, and found that aU the servants
spoke of the generosity and wealth of the
English nobleman. He advised her to ac
cept the splendid offer, and a day was
fixed for the marriage. As the young lord
did not turn up at the appointed time Sig.

find him. They found hint in a white

Pure Milk by a New Process.
It is said that a company has been
formed in New York city for securing
pure milk by a new process. Fresh, pure
milk, made in localities where feed is
cheap, is canned, bottled, and corked
when first drawn from the cow, and im
mediately heated in water or steam, both
being under the pressure of the atmos
phere. It is then cooled, after which it
may be kept a year without undergoing
any change. Heating destroys aU germs,
and bottling prevents aU connection with
the outside air. Should the new method
prove equal to the expectations of the
projectors it will work a revolution in the
