It followed- Mrs Decker,
pecking savagely-at the little
girls several times touching her
hair with his beak; but by run
ning rapidly and shielding, the
child as best she could, she
managed to reach the house in
safety. Enraged at being thns
cheated of his prey, the eagle
flew against the door nnd beat
furiously ngainst the windows,
as if detesmined to ' effect an
entrance, until Mrs. Decker,
fearing it might break in, hid
the child in a closet for great
er security. At nightfall the
bird flew away.
Early in the morning the
eagle again made its appearance.-
After flyirg wildly
aroud, it perched upon a tree
hard by the house, apparently
awaiting an oppoi tnnity to re
new the attack. ' As soon as
she discovered the bird Mrs.
Decker notified the, neighbors
and it was shot. It proved to
be a , laild American eagle,
measuring seven feet between
he tips of the wing.

Marriage and the Death-Rate.
'. Kate. '
A .writer in Scribner's Month
ly says: The death-rate in the
married and unmarried was
the subject of a paper recently
read by M. Bertillouv before
the Academy of Medicine in
Paris. The results are based
on ; statistics derived from
France, Belgium and Holland,
and are as follows: Of married
men be'twen the ages of 25 and
thirty, the .death rate was 4
per thousand; unmarried, ten
pethousand; widowers, twenty
two per thousand. Of married
and unmarried women the rate
was the same, viz: 9 per thou
sand, while iu widows it was
, In persons from thirty to
thirty-five the death-rate among
married men was 11. the un
married 5, and the widowers
19 per thousand. Among the
women it was 5 for the mar
ried, ten for the uumarried,
and 15 per thousand for the
widow., fronj which wo obtain
the following tables:

Which demonstrates that
while in the casa.ot mei the
death-rate was the same thro'-
ought tho decade for the mar
l ied and unmarried, there was
a great fatality among the wid
owers. We may, therefore,
conclude that while jhe mar
ried state does not actively im
prove the sanitary coudition in
men, the relapse into the un
married state is attended by a
great fatality. The apparent
explanation of this result is the
reduction in the tone of the sys
tem from the mental affliction
that follows the loss of the wife,
and doubtless a critical exami
nation into the diseases which
carry off widows in such a
large proportion, would sup
port this hypothesis.
This singular fatality among
widowers might be advanced
as an argument against the
married state for men, for it is
not attended by any correspon
ding advantage, sinco tho rate
if the same both in the married
and uumarried; but this is only
a superficial view of the case,
for it must not be forgotten
that the very increase iu the
death-rate among widowers
shows how much they have
lost in losing their companions,
and that loss is an indirect but
no less certain evidence that
there was a gain, although it
may appear to he obscure.
Among women, on the con
trary, marriage reduced the
death-rate' nearty one-third
during the decade. It had,
therefore, an excellent sanitary
effect. . On relapsing into the
single state of widowhood, a
great increase in the death-rate
is again seen, although in a less
degree than in men. Apply
ing, iu this instance, the same
argument as in the case of men,
we are driven to the conclusion
that, while the loss of the com
panion increases the death-rate
among women, the results are
not as fatal as among men, in
the proportion, as the table
shows, of torty-oue in the men
to thii ty-two in the women.

Do mystery left anywhere iu
the visible creation. The tele
scope is unveiling the skies, the
microscope is counting the at
oms, and the 'electroscope ie
revealing the 'composition ; of
worlds' and suns. Science is
driving imagination out of her
old realms, and the muse has
taken flight before the storm
of facts whiph is pelting this
generation. , Men are troubled
about the destruction Tof -old
systems to which their fathers
pinned their faith,- and children
are mourning over the' wrecks
of pleasant tradition which lie
strewn in their peculiar do
main of fairyland. It has been
stated by some poet-philoso
pher tuat the line of, beauty is
a curve, and that the most es
sential element of beauty is
mystery. The world is now
making a straight line for facts.
and the beauty of mystery is
gradually fading before its
eyes. It is like a child tearing
to pieces a plaything in eager
ness to comprehend it.
Mr. 11. A. Proctor has been
after the stars' again since he
published his famous book,
"Other Worlds than Ours,"
and has more fully developed
his theory that the superior
planets in our system have a
partially solar character. He
lias paid Jupiter a flying visit
and discovered a hurricane go
ing on there among the cloud-
rbelts, driving at the rate of 150
miles per hour for 6ix weeks,
over an extent of Jovian' ter
ritory equal to the whole sur
face of our earth. Nothing
terrestrial that we know of
could stand such a strain as
this a minute. It would in an
instant whirl the world into" a
heap of rubbish, and then blow

In examining into the .causes
of such an atmospheric convul
sion, Mr. Proctor concludes that
one of the. conditions must be
the great heat of the body of
the planet itself. This he as
certains to be equal to the tem
perature of red-hot iron, too
warm for auy life of which we
can have the least conception.
1 he astronomer concludes that
Jupiter was uot made to live
in, and that the province of
the planet is to give light and
heat to his satellites, and make
them comfortable dwelling-pla
ces. Jupiter, therefore, shines
partially by his own light, as
well as that ot the sun, and
performs a sort of double duty
m the solar system in nourish
ing aud keeping I113 satellites
good order for the life they
bear. Mr. Proctor is of .tbe
opinion that the superior plan
ets are most likely quasi-suns;
sources of heat and light for
the satellites which circle them.
The inference is that if life ex
ists at present, at least, in the
Jovian and Saturuian systems
at all, it must be on the satel
lites, uot on the planets them
selves, which are probably as
uninhabitable to beings Jike
ourselves, as the siin.
Accepting this theory, and
following it to its inevitable
conclusions, it appears that it
is the smaller worlds for which
the great globes are. made; aud
that the smaller the world the
brighter and fairer the life it
coutains. It may be supposed
that as the seasons are shorter
and changes quicker, therefore
life must be mtenser and more
rapid, though in many respects
smaller in scale thau on our
owu little planet. Certainly
the big places of the universe
seem absolutely unfitted for
any life sharing the smallest
analogies to cur own; they are
therefore supposed to be sub
sidiary to the life of the small
er spheres, and the great globes
from the sun downwards are
rather subservient to the small
ones, than the small to the great.
