occasion to have a fit when he is being
observed by some one. A dash of cold
water when he is not expecting it, the
application of a harmless, but painful,
current of electricity, or the English
police method of forcing the thumb nail
under that of the imitator, will generally
show that consciousness is not abolished.
The violent convulsions are usually simu

order of ability to sham the appearance
of epileptic vertigo. Besides, this would'

Where Everything Smells of Foathers,
The great occupation of the people of
St Kilda island is catching sea fowl.
From March to November the island is
covered with Bea-fowl, and catching
these birds is the staple industry. Multi
tudes of solan geese cover the rocks;
there are myriads of gulls, northern
divers, stormy petrels, black solemn cor
morants and simple guillemots, and, in
deed, almost every kind of sea-bird. The
difficult work of cbmbing about the
rocks catching the birds is engaged in by
both men and women. Enormous num
bers of fowls are sent off evory year.
Then a great deal is made out of feathers.
Referring to this subject, Dr. MacCul
loch, in his account of the island, says:
The air is full of feathered animals, the
sea is covered with them, the houses are
ornamented by them, and the inhabitants
look as if they had all been tarred and
feathered, for their hair is full of feathers
and their clothes are covered with
feathers. The women look like feathered
Mercuries, for their shoes are madt^ of
gannet's skin. Everything smells of
feathers.?Pall Mall Gazette.

Of these over half are thought to have

changing their form. The immense
volume of water breaks off huge
bowlders from the ledge and pushes back
the falls just bo much. The symmetry
of the Horseshoe fall has been spoiled in

The King of Barman In 1880.
Airman jtra^^ter, Dr. W.Joest, in
188<^'H'ei^Q^;4*to through Buixooh,'
luid an audience with Theebaw. Dr.
Joest related at the time his experiences
in the columns of The Kolnische Zei
tung, from which is taken the following
account of the personal appearance of
the king: "Quel job garcon!" were the
first words I whispered to my interpreter
?not for translation of course?and in
deed Theebaw was a handsome youth.
According to the custom of the country
Iiis hair was arranged in a big knot on
the top of his head, surrounded by a
narrow band of white mus?n; his round
face, winch was abnost white, made a
very pleasant impression; Ids eyes are
small and slightly almond-shaped, and
with Ids full lips and small mustache he
makes the impression of an indolent,
blase, perhaps rather sensual young
man. Cruelty is stamped on Ids features,
but not intern|>erance.
Afterward, when throngh an opening
in his jacket I saw his bare chest, I per
ceived by the bronze color of his body
that his face was very much painted
and powdered. He wore a close-fitting
jacket of white satin, with long tight
sleeves, two rows of diamond bottons,
and his insignia, also in diamonds. . In
his ears and on his hands I perceived
the glitter of precious stonai. A silken
putho, in green and yellow stripes, com
pleted, completed his apparel; his feet
and legs were bare. Now and then- he
played with a yak hair fan without,
however, altering his position at all.
He neither smoked nor chewed to
bacco, and I must repeat that he im
pressed me sympathetically; he is some
what stout for his age, being 21 years
old, but otherwise he is the best-looking
Burmese I have seen.?Chicago Trib
German Students .Reduced to Straits.
M. A. Martha, who contributes a
paper on the German pauper students to
The Revue Scientifique, states that the
number is largely on the increase and is
causing much uneasiness to the uni
versity authorities, Professor Billroth in
particular having frequently drawn pub
lic attention to the danger with which
this large influx of starving students
menaces the universities and society.
As examples of tho straits to which
these hapless hungerers after knowledge
are reduced, M. Martha quotes from a
Berlin paper the application made some
time ago to the municipality by a uni
versity student who asked to be em
ployeffas a night-sweeper, a post which,
however modest, would not interfere
with the prosecution of Jus studies. ' In
the Gallician and Hungarian universi
ties poor students sell matches in tho
streets, or, if they have a musical gift,
eke out an existence by sing jig or play
ing in the cafes and brasseries. Many
of them for want of books and leisure
to study, never manage to pass the ex
amination, and settle down at 30 to the
very humblest occupations, while not a
few take to evil courses and swell the
army of criminals.?Clucago Times.
Up and Down on Wall Street.
A speculator in four years* has parrr
one firm in Wall street the sum of $250|
000 in commissions. He was a wealthy
man when he went into the street with
a laudable but unwarrantable desire to
increase his patrimony by speculating
in stocks. Now, so heavy have been his
losses tliat he would be satisfied if he
possessed the .sum he has paid out in
commissions. As it is, he will cheer
fully accept a clerkslnp in the said firm,
who wish to avail themselves of Ids
numerous acquaintances to increase
their custom. If he had been contented
with a handsome sufficiency for the day,
amounting really to a superabundance,
he would now be in affluence instead of
in the position of comparative destitu
tion he is.
On the other hand, a young clerk a
few years ago commenced to speculate
in the street with $200, the savings of a
year's abstinence from smoking, and
now is worth in real estate over $1,000,
000 and several more in securities. In
Wall street spe '?'"'t'on, more than in

The Boring of a Princess' Ears.
A singular point of ourrent history
has just been brought to light in Eng
land which shows that the late Burmese
war may be referred to the wearing of a
pair of earrings. The boring of the ears
of a royal princess in Burmah is re
garded as an event of as much im
portance as her coming of ago would be
were she the heir to the English throne.
It is the occasion when she first assumes
the rank and state due to her.
King Theebaw, it is stated, when the
time approached for this ceremony in
the case of his eldest daughter, con
ceived the idea of inviting all the
crowned heads of Europe to witness it,
and was eager to entertain them with
becoming magnificence. Hence he
made an enormous demand for duty
payments in advance on the Bombay
Burmah Trading company, an English
corjKjration. The company refused to
submit to this extortion, aud the result
is matter of history.?Youth's Com

A wonderful amount of money is in

house, which has been in existence only
a few years, spends over $100,000 an

sells 1,000,000 cigarettes a day. So much

LIFE IN A MAN-OF-WAR.
Discipline to "Which Jack Tars are Sub
? Jfrcitd?Systematic Guuordlnotlon.
In ord?r to understand a man-of-war H
a primarily necessary to consider her aa
formed of many parts, all arranged to
gether under the predominant law of
wbordination. Thus one may speak cor
rectly of the captain and officers, or of
the seamen and marines of a man-of
war. But all such broad divisions re
quire to be subdivided, and in reality the '
j whole body is made up of small parts,
I ?ach of which resembles the other, as far
as the principles on which it acts are con
cerned, and each Of which, though with
functions of its own, is related to all the
other parts. Taking the crew, for ex
! ample?the men, as they are called,
i when spoken of as distinct from the of
! Reers?we find them divided by grades
I not less important than those which di
vide the officers themselves. There aro
able bodied seamen and ordinary sea
then. The ablo seaman is a finished
sailor, not only able to do all the usual j
work, below and aloft, but to take the
helm and the lead. The ordinary sea- !
man is a leas quabfied man, receiving less :
pay, but will probably rise from that to
the .higher rating by and by.
But if the mere term "seaman" would
imperfectly describe one of the men, so
the mere term officer would equally im
perfectly describe one of the officers.
Not only are there the officers proper,
from captain to naval cadet; there are
different classes below these. There are
the warrant officers, boatswain, gunner
and carpenter, and the petty officers,
quartermaster, boatswain's mate, master
at arms, etc, These, however, are not
all the grades in the scheme. There is a
captain to each top, a coxswain to each
boat, a captain of the forward, captain
of the after guard. Subordination, there
fore, interpenetrates the whole body j
Bocial of a man of war; it does not only
act broadly, but minutely; nor generally I
only, but in detail. Subordination and
classification are, in fact, the two great
principles which regulate everything I
afloat. Subordination teaches a man
that he must obey?and whom. Classifi
cation teaches him how he must obey?
and where. The cornerstone of naval
subordination, then, is the authority of
the captain. He commands the ship,
even though there should be a rear !
admiral on board in command of the
Though essentially a living nnity, a
coherent individual whole, yet a man-of
war attainB to be this by dint of a care
ful division and adjustment of parts.
Her crew is classified in several distinct
ways, according to the different classes
of duty that develops upon them in dif
ferent parts of the ship's daily Hfe. Thus
a ship has to be sailed. For that purpose
her crew are divided and appointed tc
particular stations where they go when
nautical operations, are on hand. There
are forecastlemen, foretopmen, maintop
men, and an afterguard which works on
deck and does not go aloft. Each of these
sets of men has its captain and second
captain; each top its midshipman, and at
the summons, "Hands reef topsails," or j
what not, everybody knows where to be-1
take himself and where his work is.
Again, a man-of-war has to be fought.
For that purpose her crew are divided !
and appointed to particular stations at
"quarters." There are the forward inain
deck quarters, and after upi>erdeck quar
ters; forward upperdeck quarters,
after maindeck quarters and so on
Each man belong to a particu
lar division and a particular gun
in the division and a particular number
in the gun; so when the drum and fife
call him to quarters he knows just .as
well where to go as he knew where to go j
when the boatswain's pipe called him to
make or shorten sail.
Once more, a ship has asocial as well
as a naval or military life, and men oat, I
drink and sleep there, as in a village or
a barrack, xiccordingly, the men are 1
divided into messes?each mess having
its own table at a certain place on the
lower deck, and one member of the mess
being cook, and going for its share of
provisions to the galloy each day. So,
too, every man has his bag for his clothes
and Iiis hammock to sleep in, and has
prescribed hours and places for the use
of both. And since a ship, as a whole,
never sleeps, there being no such com
plete suspension of life possible in a ship
as in a country mansion, all the officers
are divided into three watches, and all
tho crew into two. The public opinion
of a man-of-war is as definitely known
and felt as that of a town. Tho men
have their favorite officers and their un
popular officers?just as the officers them
selves give a certabi well understood
status to each of their own body, and
have a tendency to split their messes into
cliques, according to taste and inclhia
Granite Slab of Enormous Size.
To separate from the main ledge a slab
of granite :334 feet long, 3 to 4 feet thick
and 11 feet wide, is no ordinary feat to
accomplish. But this has been clone at
the Fiynt Granite quarry, in Monsun,
Mass., and by the means usual in quarries
for separating slabs or blocks from the
mahi ledge. A row of wedges were set,
several hundred in number, and the
workmen beginning at one end gently
and carefully tapped the wedges, moving
by degrees down the line, until the other
end of them was reached, when the same
operation was repeated.
In this manner, by careful and patient
application, aided by favorable condi
tions of the weather, the slab of the above
phenomenal size was successfully sepa
rated from the main rock. The value of
this immense slab, if it could have been
transferred safely to one of our large
cities, at not too great cost, would have
been several thousand dollars. And it
seemed almost sacrilegious that it was
necessary to cut it up mto smaller blocks
for transportation and finally used for
ordinary building purposes.?Scientifio
