All engravings or photographs that
are framed in wood up to the edge look
much bettor If the frame is rather flat
and tho wood is stained to harmonize
with the tones of the picture. A silver

the outside of the frame, instead of in

Fried Celery. (To serve with boiled
fowl or turkey). Cut the whito pieces

A FANTASTIC ORGY.
Dance of Ills Satanic Majraty In An Airl-
can Chler't Court-Yard.
A fantastic orgy was witnessed at the
town of Loongi, the capital of Bullom,
west coast of Africa, by a party of offi
cers from the West India regimentquar-
tored at Sierro Leone. Tho people of
Loongi are Mohammedans, but the danc
ing dovil himself is a relic of not long
departed paganism, and so also proba
bly is the danco itself.
It takes place in the court-yard of the
chiof's premises, which is entered
through a circular hut. Tho scene
which presents itself to any one coming
suddenly out of the darkness into the
noise and glare is decidedly uncanny,
In the center of a circle which fills the
court-yard, the devil with an orthodox
tail, a great crocodile's head, and long
grass, looking like hair, depending from
his body and logs and swaying as he
moves, leaps, beating time with his feet
to tho beat of the drums; while the
women, two deep, wail a chant and
Strike their palms together in slow,
rhythmical measure, thoso In the front
row bowing down between each beat
Tho young men in long robes and caps
wail with the womon. Both aro under
vows, tho dance being one of their rites,
They look dazed to begin with, but grad
ually work themselves into a frenzy;
and tho black faces, tho monotonous,
wailing cry, the thrumming of tho
drums, tho fattle of the clackers, and
the beat of tho devil's foot as ho springs
up, crouches down and swings about
make, a scene to shock the quiet moon
and stars and gladden Gehenna. North
of Sierra Leone Africa is Mohammedan,
south pagan, and tl:o southern people
havo this devil.
hen poaoo is declared betweon two
native tribes, tho peace devil, who is

IN THE ELECTRICAL WORLD.
By a now device, pieces of metal
may bo shaped with great rapidity by
being forced under dies whilo rendered

Experiments with tho 25,000 candlo

and that, by throwing tho light on tho

M. Ilogfroky,' who recently, bofore
the Hungarian Academy, read a paper
involving tho results of five years' study
ot thunder storms, stated that he accept
ed Sohncke's theory that the electricity
of thunder storms is due to tho friction
of water drops on ico.
The perfected target for firing at
the small-arm ranges is workod by elec
tricity. By means of contact and a bat
tery, there is communication with the
indicating apparatus at the firing end of
tho range, showing which section of the
target has been struck.
The German post-ofllco officials
have boen experimenting with the North
Sea cable, 75 kilometers long, between
Heligoland and Cuxhaven, to test the
possibility of using submarine cables of
considerable length for telephonic pur
poses. Tho results have been very favor
able, distinct communication having
beon obtained at both ends.
Electricity has not boen practically
applied in the art of music heretofore,
excopt, perhaps, in the operating mech
anism of Church organs. George Breed,
of the United States Navy, has devised
a method by which the passage of a
broken current over a conductor in a
magnetic field produces musical tones
of varying pitch and volume.
The latest wonderful discovery is
reported from Syracuse, N. Y. A man
there has discovered a bed of what he
calls "electric rock," which, according
to his reports, is endowed with wonder
ful properties. It will gonerato unlim
ited power, and give any amount of in
candescent light equal, if not suporior,
to that produced by manufactured elec
tricity, in addition to which it is cheap
er than kerosene. Ono small charge of
400 pounds of rock will produce light
and power enough for a wholo year
before losing its force, and it is perfect
ly harmless, making insulation entirely
-The idea that electricity flows
through a wire somowhat as water flows
through a pipe is likely to pass away,
as reasons appear for believing that the
energy is not transmitted by the wire
at all, but by the snrrounding other. In
some experiments by Prof. J. J. Thom
son, the velocity of electric disturbances
along a wire surrounded by air was
nearly double the velocity along the
samo wire surrounded by sulphur, and
the velocity of the discharge through a
vacuum tube SO fet long was comparable
with that of light. Tho conclusion is
that tho conductor nieroly guides tho
discharge impelled through the ether.
-Every locomotivo has power and
weight to spare when its train is in mo
tion, but is frequently unable- to start
the samo train from a condition of rest
Tho diffcult point is in tho adhesion of
tho wheels to the rails. To prevent tho
wheels from slipping sand is used, but a
more modorn and effective method of
increasing tho traction is to pass a cur
rent of electricity from tho driving
wheels to the rails. A Baltimore and
Ohio locomotive has been fitted up with
apparatus of this kind. The explana
tion of this phenomenon is that the cur
rent produces a heating effect at the
point of contact of the wheel on tho
rail, softening both and thereby in
creasing the area of contact and conse
quently the amountof adhesion.
A recent writer observes that elec
tricity is gradually invading tho whole
domain of commercial chemistry. A
factory for the manufacture of chlorate
of potash by electricity has been estab
lished in Switzerland; soda is boing ob
tained by electrolysis of sea salt; tho
olectric bleaching of paper is largely
carried on in France, and the manufac
ture of electric soap on a large scale is
proposed in Germany. The transforms'
tion of wood into paper pulp by the
electrolysis of a salt solution into which
sawdust or wood is immersed has been
proven to bo practicable and the new
industry is to be established. Some su
gar works in Havana have adopted ap-
plianccs which greatly hasten tho
process of sugar making.
Tolit by the Bishop of London..
When Doctor Temple (now Bishop of
London) was the head master of Rugby
School, a boy camo up before him for
some broach of discipline, and the facts
seemed so against the lad that he was in
imminent danger of being expelled. Ho
had a defense, but boing neither clear
headed nor fluent in the presence of the
head master, he could not make it clear,
He therefore wrote homo to his father,
detailing at length his position and his
explanation. His father very wisoly
thought tho best thing he could do was
to send the boy's letter as it stood to
Doctor Temple, merely asking him to
overlook any familiarity of expression,
Apparently, the father had not turned
over tho page and seen his son's post
script, for thero Doctor Teniplo found
tho following words: "if 1 could ex-
plain, it would bo all right, for though
Temple is a beast, be is a just beast."
The Bishrp, i?i telling the story, is ac
customed to say it was the greatest
compliment be has ever recoiled in his
life.- Golden Days.

afternoon. His death was not due to
any disease, but to the gradual failing
Mr. Bancroft was born October,
1800, at Worcestor, Mass. He gradu
ated at Harvard, studied in Germany,
was a tutor of Greek in his alma ma
ter and thought of entering the pul
pit. He was elected in 1830, without
his knowledge, to the Legislature of
Massachusetts, but did not take his
seat. In 1844 he ran as the Demo
cratic candidate for Governor of Mas
sachusetts, receiving the largest vote
ever cast for a nominee of that party.
In 1845 he became Secretary of the
Navy under President Polk, and es
tablished the naval academy at An
napolis. In 1846' he became Minister
to England, May 14, 1867, he was ap
pointed to fill a like position in Ger

Jackson, Jan. 21. The Jackson
Board of Trade has ordered to be
printed the report of Capt. J. J. Wil
liams, a civil engineer of wide repu
tation, concerning the practicability
ot a canal to connect the waters of
the Tennessee and the Forked rivers,
by which navigation from the upper
Tennessee to the Mississippi would
be shortened over 800 miles. This
scheme is feoing to be taken up before
a great while and brought before
Congress. As the great iron and coal
belt of Alabama and Tennessee is de
veloped the importance and necessi
ty for this canal will become mani
fest. It is probable that u convention
of citizens from the leading towi.s of
Tennessee and North Alabama will
be called next spring to take action
in this matter.
