Spain's Free and Easy Railways.
An idea of the free and easy meth

in this incident. related by Henry A.

Germs In the Teeth.
Everybody knows in a general way
how important it is to give the teeth
a good cleaning and to rinse the mouth
out first thing in the morning. The
object, of course, is to remove the ac
cumulation of bacteria which gathers
on the teeth, gums, tongue and palate
during the hours of sleep. How many
germs do you suppose accumulate dur
Ing the night's sleep? In answer to
this question E. C. Bousfield, writing
in the London Lancet. gives some in
teresting and rather startling figures.
which are worth quoting. He states
that he has found the mouth on wak
ing in the morning to obtain about
,000,000,000 bacteria capable of being
removed by a fivefold rinsing with
twenty-five cubic centimeters of water
each time. After ordinary washing of
tho teeth with a hard tooti'-rush
about one-fourth the number could
still be rinsed away. After using
tooth paste only 120,000,000 were left.
At present there is not a live gorilla
In America. There have never been
more than three, and only one of these
lived more than a few weeks.
"I would give $10,000 for a gorilla
in good condition," said the superin
tendent of a noted zoological garden.
"and we could get the money back in
a few months owing to the. crowds of
people who would come tosee it. A
gorilla would be a great drawing card,
but gorillas cannot be got for money.
They grow sometimes to 400 pounds
in weight Their home is a small
strip of marshy land on the west
coast of Africa. The strip is perhaps
250 miles long and 100 miles deep, and
the gorillas stay back from the coast
and are hard to get. Once out of their
native element they die from climatic
changes and lack of proper food."

The pure bred sheep in Shetland are
not shorn, but plucked. The process
takes place generally in June, when
the fleece is "ripe" and the silky wool
can be pulled off without pain. This is
called "rooing" and is much less dam
aging to the young fiber than clipping
with shears. The wool when thus han
died retains its peculiar softness, so
that any one of experience can tell
whether the material of a knitted ar
ticle has been plucked or shorn. It
ripens first upon the neck and shoul
ders, so that sheep half pulled resem
ble in some sort a poodle that is
clipped. We must suppose that harsher
handling prevailed at one time, for we
read that in 1616 the Scottish privy
council spoke of' the custom as still
kept up "in some remote and uncivil
places," and James I. wrote to tell
them that it had been put down in Ire
land under penalty of a fine. Upon
this they passed an act on March 17,
1616, deploring the destruction of sheep
thus caused and imposing similar fines
on those who should persist in the
Cleanliness and Arsenic.
In Styria and Carinthia there is
much arsenic eating among the peas
ants. The women take It to give
themselves a good complexion and to
make their hair fine and glossy. The
men take it because they believe that
It gives them wind in climbing in the
chase after chamois. In Styria and
Carinthia It is known that an arsenic
eater can never be broken of the habit
and that if arsenic be compulsorily
kept from the eater death rapidly en
sues. It is believed in the Tamar
and this Is perhaps true-that an ar
senic worker is fit for no other work.
He must remain at this occupation.
Health and breath fail him at other
emp.Wments. Eventually It may be
that chronic arsenical poisoning en
sues. But this may be staved off, if
not wholly prevented, by scrupulous
cleanliness. by care taken not only to
wash in the "changing house," but to
bathe freely at home. As one of the
foremen said to the writer, "Against
arsenic the best antidote is soap taken
A Piscatorial Gunner.
The jaculator fish, the piscatorial gun
ner of the Javan lakes, uses his mouth
as a squirt gun and is a marksman of
no mean ability. Go to a small lake or
pond filled with specimens of jacula
tors, place a stake or pole in the water
with the end projecting from one to
three feet above the surface, place a
'beetle or Ily on top of the pole and
await developments. Soon the water
will be swarming with finny gunners,
each anxious for a shot at the tender
morsel which the experimenter has
placed in full view. Presently one
comes to the surface, steadily observes
his prey and measures the distance.
Instantly he screws his mouth into the
funniest shapes imaginable, discharges
a stream of water with precision equal
to any sharpshooter and knocks the fly
or beetle Into the water, where he is in
stantly devoured by the successful
Nimrod or some of his hungry horde.
This sport may be kept up as long as
the supply of beetles and files holds
The Air Mile.
The air mile is a unit of measure
ment that came into use with the ad
vancement of aviation. We have the
land mile and the sea mile, which Is
approximately one-seventh longer than
the land mile of America. The nautical
mile 'is often incorrectly called a knot,
but a knot is a measure of both dis
tance and time. It Is correct to say
that a vessel makes ten knots, but to
say that she makes ten knots an hour
Is tautology. The air mile is measured
differently from the land mile and the
sea mile. It is alan ileminus the
retardation of an adverse wind or plus
the accleration of a favoring wind.
Thus an aviator could cover many air
miles while hovering over a given point
on the earth's' surface. -Browning's
