THE PIGS AND THE WEATHER.
The Habit of Gathering: Sticks and Grass?
A Meaningless Couplet.
Of pigs, I have heard it said, very fre
uWhen swine carry sticks, the clouds
?rill play tricks?" but that?"When they
lie in the mud, no fears of a flood."
The first of these couplets is of twofold
interest. I have watched them for
years, to see what purport this carrying
of sticks and bunches of grass might
have, and have only learned that it lias
notling whatever to do with the
weather, or at least with coming rain
storms, The drouth of summer is so far
a convenience as to throw light upon
this habit, as it did upon the uneasy
cows. Pigs carry sticks as frequently
then as during wet weather, or just pre
ceding a shower. Furthermore, -these
gatherad twigs are not brought together
" as tnough to make a nest, but are scat
tered about in a perfectly aimless man
ner. For some cause, the animal is un
easy, and takes this curious method of
relieving itself; The probabilities are
that it is a survival of some habit com
mon to swine in their feral condition,
just as we see a dog turn about half a
dozen timee*before lying down.
In an interesting paper on local
weather-lore, read by Mr. Amos W. But
ler before the American Association for
the Advancement of Science, during the
PMladelphia meeting of 1884, the author
has another version of this saying:
"When hog6 gather up sticks and carry
them about, expect cold weather." This
is wholly at variance with what I liave
observed, for my memoranda record tins
habit almost wholly during the hot
weathar, and this must necessarily be
the rule with New Jersey swine, or the
local weather-prophets would not have
coined the verse as I have given it.
AR to the other couplet, it is about as
nesr meaningless as. any saying can well
be. Some rustic rhymer, a century ago,
may have added it as a piece of fun, but
it lias stuck most persistently. As it
stands now, it has stood for quite 100
years.~Dr. C. C. Abbott in Popular

There is a Philadelphia club called
"The Gourmands," and it is said to be

was eaten on Saturday night, and was
supposed to be served in the "Greek

and as natural as possible. Goldfish
were passed around alive is glass globes
and soon after served with their scales
on. A young wild boar, cooked, but
life-like, adorned the center of the, table.

A Flock of Sheep on Drill.
Alma Hill, of Bronwood, has about
200 head of sheep on his place and a good

ago he was in the field and saw fifteen
sheep side by side, their heads all point
ing the same way, looking as if out for a
drill. He yelled at them to move, and
the whole gang moved at once. It was
some time before he ascertained that the
burs bad got into their wool and they
were stuck together.?Americus (Ga.)

It la Cfco Specialist VTho gtuxMcd?*-?**!
of ? Boy's talenlt.
President Riehe, in taking leave of the
high school boys the other day, gave
them the keynote to success in life when
he bade them, first, to be true, genuine
men, and, secondly, to acquire some
special skill or craft.
? It is the specialist, the man who can do
some one thing, however small, though
it be only to make bread or button-hooks
better tlian anybody else, who nowadays
is secure of his living. And it is the
man who sticks to his own .trade, who
imitates and courts nobody, who Uvea
simply and sincerely out from his own
conscience, convictions and taste who is
secure of his social position.
John Burroughs studied birds, and
birds only. He knows them as nobody
else ever has done, and when he tells us
of their'habits, their vices, their oddities
and the meaning of their song, all the
world stands stiel to listen.
A man of wealth has a conviction that
the sap of a certain Indian tree can be
made useful to mankind. He gives up
his life to experimenting with it; sacri
fices two fortunes; reduces wife and
children to want; fails again and again;
is jeered at by scientific men, but never
gives up his belief or changes his work.
At last success comes. He has not only
earned enormous wealth' for Iiis family,
but he has given to mankind o.ie of the
most useful appliances of life.
It is useless to dwell on this point. The
most careless lad beginning lifo now, in
this modern crush and struggle, soon
learns that it will never do to .scatter Ids
6hot. Only the specialist, and the thor
ough, able specialist, has a chance in the
professions, sciences or tradea. Parents
are beginning to find that tin natural
bent of a boy's talents or skill must be
discovered, and his whole training be di
rected to stregthen and develop it if suc
cess is to be assured to him.
Teachers, unfortunately, have not yet
discovered this fact. Or, more proba
bly, they find it impossible to detect any
decided bent or talent in the great ma
jority- of boys. So in they go, en masse,
to the preparatory school, and after that
to college, all toiling along together
on a dozen different paths of knowl
edge, on moat of which they
will not advance a step after
matriculation. So wide is the expanse
of possible learning now opened before
them that the text-books are in fact
little better than indices to hint at what
there is to learn.?Philadelphia Press.
' Crystallization of Fruits Id France*
The- last volume of the reports from t ho
consuls of the United States as to their
respective districts contains several arti
cles on the erystaliaation of fruits as
practiced in France. In the opinion at
our consuls stationed in France, this in
dustry could be introduced into the
United States to good advantage. They
state that very large quantities of crys
talized fruit are exported from southern
France to almost every country in the
world. Among the fruits preserved are
oranges, pineapples, apricots, peaoheB.
plums, cherries, prunes, pears, rigs and
melons. The orystallizing process is in
principle simple and nearly uniform for
all kinds of fruit, but requires a certain*
degree of skill, which can only be ob
tained by experience.
The essential thing tobe done is to ex
tract the juice of the fruit and replace it
in the pulp with liquid Sugar, which,
upon hardening, not only preserves the
fruit from decay and fermentation, but
retains it in its original form and consist
ency. The fruit to be preserved should
bo freo from blemishes and of the correct
degree of ripeness. Fruit long picked
and transported considerable distance is
unfit for preserving by this process.
The "pits" of 6tone fruit are removed,
and those that have thick skins, like
poars and peaches, arc pared, quartered,
and soaked in cold salt water for severol
The Carp's Tenacity of Life.
Certainly, the tenacity of life shown
by pond animals is very remurkable.
Our own English carp bury themselves
deeply in the mud in winter, and there
remain in a dormant condition many
months entirely without food. During
this long hibernating period they can be
preserved alive for a considerable time
out of water, especially if their gills are,
from time to time, slightly moistened.
They may then be sent to any address by
parcels post, packed in wet moss, with
out serious damage to their constitution;
though, according to Dr. Gunther, these
dissipated products of civilization pre
fer to have a piece of bread steeped in
brandy put into their mouths to sustain
In Holland, where the carp are not so
sophisticated, thoy are often kept the
whole winter th.ough, hung up in a net
to keep there from freezing. At first
they require to be slightly wet from time
to time, ^ust to acclimatize them gradu
ally to so dry an existence; but after a
while they adapt themselves cheerfully
to their altered oiroumstances, and feed
on an occasional frugal meal of bread
and milk with Christian resignation.?
Subdivisions of the I.ogal Profession.
The tendency in this country is to the
subdivision of professions. Lawyers are
recogizing this tendency now more than
ever before. Those who willingly take
any business that offers are growing
fewer every year. It will eventuate in
attorneys skilled only in corporation law,
others in insurance law, others in com
mercial law, others In the law of patents,
trade marks and copyrights, etc. And
all those divisions are capable of almost
infinite subdivision. The growth of law
and the constantly increasing mass of
decisions upon every conceivable point
render this division necessary. I do not
think a further division of the work of
the courts will be neccessary, hut there
will be one effect there?the judges will
be appointed or elected for life.?C. G.

Some Taeta for "Wo old-Be Cowboy?.
To any one who contemplates trying a
season's riding I would say this: You
will build up your constitution for life,
you will meet rough fellows, hear hard
swearing, and see some fighting, but you
will hear fewer indecent stories on the
range than you will in the average club
smoking-room. "Your "outfit," or bed
clothing, and equipments, will cost you
about half your earnings, and if you
smoke freely and do not try to save
money the end of the season will leave
you'neither richer nor poorer. You. will
often have a wet bed, and thank heaven
for getting to it wet as it is; you will
always be up before daylight, and
generally two hours out of the night as
well; you will eat coarse food, every
thing fried in lard; you will be in the
saddle from twelve to eighteen hours
every day; you will often suffer for the
want of food and water during a long
day's work in the hot sun; you will-ex
pose yourself to some peril of life and
more of limb; you will be for much of
the time as absolutely cut off from the
civilized world as if you were on a .vessel
in mid ocean; you will vow three, times a
day that when you strike the ranch
again you will quit; you will be sore and
bruised, cold at night and scorched by
day, wet to the skin one hour and
parched with thirst the next, auditor
the rest of your life you will look back to
your life on the range with longing
thoughts of its charms.
Very few men are rich enough to in
dulge their taste for riding by keeping
more than two saddle horses. A
"puncher" often rides a dozen, and does
much of his work at full run. "He
breathes the finest air on earth, eats beef
as freely as an ordinary working man
eats cabbage and potatoes, and fancies
the class* to wldch he belongs are the aris
tocracy of labor. He is generous, al
ways quick to appreciate pluck and kind
liness in others, chivalrous to the few
women he .sees, ever ready to help hang
a horse-thief, and undergoes more hard
ship and danger than a dozen soldiers.

Description of a Wonderful Machine.
"When I was laying the foundation of
my mechanical fame and fortune, a few
years ago, I boarded in a house filled
with locomotive engineers and firemen.
A practice prevailed there of enlivening,
the supper table with social conversation,
and, the locomotive party being in the
majority, the leading theme of talk was
stupendous feats performed in railway
runs, varied by minor incidents and rec- I
ords of narrow escapes. George Dew
hirst, who ran a lathe in the shop, Bat
opposite to mo at the table, and he?got
tired of being excluded from the conver
sation. He became ambitious to hear
himself talk in that crowd.
"One evening, catching on in a lull in
the conversation, he called out loudly
to me, 'Well, I went over and saw the
machine to-day, and it is astonishing the
fine work it does!' 'How does it work?
I inquired. 'Well,' said he, 'by means of
a pedal attachment a fulcrumed lever
converts a vertical reciprocating motion
into circular movement. The P^jfi?jal
part of the machine is a disk whloh re
volves rapidly on a vertical plane. Power
is applied tlirough the axis of the disk,
and, when the speed of the driving arbor
is moderate, the periphery of the ma
chine is traveling at a great velocity.
Work is done on this periphery. Pieces
of the hardest steel are by mere impact
reduced to any shape the skillful oper
ator desires.' 'What on earth is the ma
chine!' demanded a listener. 'Oh, it is a
new grindstone,' replied George; and a
silence that could be felt passed round
the supper table."?Mechanical Progress.
Celery as a Cure for Ithouinatism.
In celery there must be some special
virtue, if we only knew what it is. Noth
ing is made in vain, and the powerful
smell and the extraordin?r}' taste of cel
ery are intimations from nature that it
has some special mission. Mr. Ward,
ofPerriston Towers, Ross, writes that
rheumatism becomes impossible if celery
is freely used as an article of diet. "Cut
the celery," he says, "into inch dice. Boil
in water until soft. No water must be
poured away unless drank by the in
valid. Then take new milk, very
slightly thicken it with flour and flavor
it with nutmeg; warm with the celery
in the saucepan; serve with diamonds of
toasted bread around the dish, and eat
"Permit me . aay," he adds, "that
cold nor damp never produces rheuma
tism, but Bimply develops it. The acid
blood iR the primary cause and the sus
taining power of the evil. While the
blood is alkaline there can be no rheu
matism, and equally no gout. Let me
fearlessly say that rheumatism is im
possible on such diet, and yet our med
ical men allowed rheumatism to kill
over 3,000 human beings in 1676?every
case as unnecessary as a dirty face."?
Takln? Micro-Photographs of Timber.
Photography is employed to recognize
good wood. Micro-photographs are
taken of sections, longitudinal and trans
verse, of standard pieces of timber bear
ing a certain known maximum or mini
mum strain. Theso are enlarged and
serve as comparisons for other samples.
Any piece which the educated eye de
tects to have fewer rings per inch of di
ameter, fewer fibres or fewer radial
plates per square inch of section is re
jected. The advantage of this method is
that it allows all timber for important
positions to be tested before being used.

a Homo in Washington.
Wealth in the United States has flown
hither and thither, everywhere, to rind
something to buy in the social and mat
rimonial line, and has come home not
contented, but cornered. The fearful
fact has to be admitted that there is no
country like the United States, no peo
ple like the Americans, no homes like
these, and no ruins such as we have.
Our ruins are seen in the penitentiary,
in ruptured families, in divorced wives,
where, in the mad contest for a million,
the human fabric has become paralyzed
and fallen into decay, and nightshade in
stead of ivy covers it.
The fine widow or the fine daughter
has been sent abroad, and has found how
.hollow the old world is. The English
man, she finds, considers her and his dog
of about the same value. The French
man she would otherwise marry expects
to give her a littlo of his time and the re
mainder to his faithful old mistress. The
Italian she took a fancy to grovels in his
superstitions for half an hour and in hii
dirt for half a day. The Austrian she
met*-expects to make her a feature of the
camp, and the north Gorman prince aha
would have died for looks at her some
times as if he would lick her if he ever
got her in his power.
So she comes home with all her money,
derived from dealing in scrap-iron and
whalebone, and says: "Where can I go
to be restless enough?" She tries Florida,
and there sees nothing but invalids and
speculators, healthy wives and invalid
husbands. She tries. Fortress Monroe,
and there if it is the height of the season
she becomes the slave^of the waiter, who
has it in his province either to starve her
to death or to make her the envy of all
the hungry women in the neighborhood.
She tries Boston, and sits around gab
bling about culture until her head
swims. She tries New York, and it
knows-nothing but stocks. She tries
Philadelphia, and its heart is in fried
oysters and chicken salad. She tries
Baltimore, and it is always talking about
some infernal nonsence called conserv
She hears of Washington, comes, and
is carried away. "Here," Bhe says, "I
will have a house or rent a house, and
both sexes shall come and admire me."
Hence, Washington has at last become a
capital. No public question gets more
than enough consideration to digest yes
terday's terrapin. The man who rises in
the senate to take up the most moment
ous question he supposes to be on the
dial sees everybody around him gapo, for
they were up at the reception last night
until 1 o'clock; and went home in a car
riage with the widow and her daughter,
and are thinking about that lunch they
are to have to-morrow morning with the
same interesting folks.?"Gath'a" Wash
Why Low Ceilings Are Proferable.
Low walls to rooms are being advocated
in England as really affording better
ventilation through not providing for an
uppbr strata of aU but irremovable foul
air, and tending to prevent draught.
The suggestion has us artistic value. We
have probably gone to the extreme in
the height of apartments to the disad
vantage of " appearance of furniture,
which is thus dwarfed; also failing to
secure the most pleasing proportions to
all rooms not having large area. There
is a cosiness, too, in a low-ceiling. room
wliioh, under the reigning style, is sacri
ficed to emptiness. Wo recall at this
moment with pleasure the "hunting box"
of Queen Elizabeth, formerly at the edge
of a forest, with its low wainscoted
rooms. In her days low ceilings were
the rule, and comfortable interiors rather
than imposing exteriors were studied.?
