Mr. V. T. Barnuin will find the

A cotnraitteo appointed by the Med
ical Society of Vionna, and oomposod
of Professors Klob, Muller and Wedl,
has just published a long roport on tri
chinosis, in which tho startling fact is
assorted that the real source of infeo-
tion entirely in the rat, in which the
malady is spontaneously dovelopod and
wbich communicates it to the pig. In
Mcrflvia, eighteen out of forty nino
rats examined were trichinized, n pro
portion of nonrly thirty-sevon por
cent. In Lower Austria, tho propor
tion was' not more than four percent.,
and in the environs of Vienna about
ton per cent.
The report confirms tho fact that the
trichinosis may bo transmitted by food
from the rat to the rabbit, from the
rabbit to the fox and hodgohog, from
the' rat to the pig, and from the pig to
the rat. Even the calf may be infec
ted by being fed with the flesh of tri
chinized rabbit. What is worse still,
the larvro of flies feeding on infected
meat will transmit trichinosis to rab
bits, provided the lar;vn como fresh
from tie infected substanco; for if a
certain time be allowed to pafs tho tri-
ehines soon die in the digostivo tobo of
It is important to notice that tho re
port distinctly confirms the innoeu
ousncsi of triehinized meat when thor
oughly salted, smoked or boiled, tho
lutt or process being by fur the most ef
ficacious. Moat roanUd for throe-
quarters of nn hour is the food ; boiling
requires a whole hour. And yet tho
report mentions cases of infeotion re
cently observed in Austria, so that
moans should be taken there to protect
the publio from this disastrous malady.
The fu st mcasuro proposed is the ex
termination of al! rats and mice, hut
not without previously oxumining
thorn in order to ascertain the exis
tence of trichinosis among thorn. If
this examination should lead to affir
mative results, then particular care
should bo taken in the locality to keep
pigs awny from nil sewers, heaps of
manure, and other such places fre
quented by rats. The flesh of tho pig
should be examined either after douth
or ovon during lite, by moans of incis
ions. The infectod pig should bo sep
arated from the others, marked, und
its sale prevented. Special slaughter
houses should bo organized for pigs,
and tho flesh examined by veterinary
practitioners; and the publio them
selves are warned never to eat raw
pork under any form, bat strictly to
consume it only well saltod or smoked,
boilod or roaalod.
A Mr. Hoffman sends to the Quincy
(Pla.) Commonwealth tho following
tcrso account of tho present condition
of things in Texas:
"Provisions cheap and abundant ;
corn selling about 75 cents per bushel ;
pork 4 and 5 cents per pound. Large
quantities of wheat made, sufllcientfor
home consumption, At 75 cents per
bushel; horses (pretty fair) from 850
to J100; cotton crop excellent selling
there from 15 to 18 cents in gold; freed
men behaving very well, and giving
general satisfaction; land remarkably
cheap, from the fact that old owners
are desirous of investing in stock in
tho western portion of the State, and
for the purpose of doing this throw
land upon the market. Emigration
unprecedented; health very good;
curroncy gold, except in payment of
taxes, whon greenbacks are used at 50
per cent, discount.
The Gospel not Preached to the
Doubt! churches will increase ac
cording to the demand for them, and
the statiutics of our cities indicate that
at the present time tho large majority
do itot rare to hear the Gospel. How
to reaoh the non-worshiping masses is
the great practical question of the day.
The statistics that follow are believed
to bo substantially correct : The popu
ation of Boston is 192,000. There are
one hundred plaoos of worship, allow
ing six hundred seats for eaok church,
and (10,000 only got into tha churches,
leaving 132,000 out of church on Sun
day. There are three hundred and fif
ty chapels and churches in New York
City, mnny of thorn very small; allow
ing that there are sittings for seven
hundred persons in each upon an Av
erage, the church will accommodate
250,000 people. There are, probably,
including strangers in transition, 950,
000 pooplo in New York every Sunday,
leaving 700,000 that could not get seats
in tho church. Allowing 200,000 for
those physically incapacitated from
Attending service, and 500,000 remain
habitually absent from church. The
churches in tho Unitod States number
About 70,000. Allowing ono hundred
for each, a lurgo average for tho coun
try, 7,000,000 only go to church, loav
ing 23,000,000 out of church. Ex.
The Day Forty-Eight Hours
Last weok we showed that the first
beginning of tho day is somewhere be
tween America and Asia. The pre
cise locality of that somewhere has not
been determined. If the Pacific Ocean
were thickly populated with men, tho
place of the beginningof tho day would
be a matter of great consequence, nnd
would probably be settled by statute.
The day would start from a meridian
line extending from polo, and tho lon
gitude of this line would would be so
accurately fixed lb, at a man might
stand astride it andrealize the paradox
of having one foot in Monday aud the
other in Tuesday. Many of the read
ers of this will live longenough to hear
this subject discussed in national coun
cils. Wo propose now to show that Mon
day or any other week day is forty
eight hours long; we mean that during
the whole of forty-eight hours Monday
is on earth somewhere to be found.
Tho Monday of this city is of course
twenty-four hours long, but before nnd
after our Monday thero is Monday in
some other quarter. Whon Monday
begins in New York, there have been
threo hours of Monday in London, and
forthreo hours after our Monday ends
there will bo Monday in San Francis-
co. inus Dotwoen tneso places .Mon
ma .1 I r
day lasts eighteen hours. Now if the
ilny line woro at ourantipodes, Monday
would begin there twelve bourse be
foro ours, and end twelve hours after
ours. J tins, tor tno space or rorty-
eiirht hours tho earth is not rid of
Monday. The fact may be illustrated
in nnothor way. Supposo wo aro at
the day line. Monday there begins,
and in twenty-four hours along comes
Tuesday. But just west (half on inch
if you please) Monday began only an
instant before it ended east of the line.
The Monday east of the lino is twenty-four
hours long, and west of thelina
is the same length, and in all, Monday
lasts forty-eight hours. Scientific
A Visit to Daniel Boone.
In June, 1819, I made a trip of one
hundred miles for the purpose of pain
ting tho portrait of old Colonel Darnel
Boone. I bad rauoh trouble iu find
ing him. Ho was living some miles
from the main road in ono of the cab
ins of an old block house, which was
built for tho protection of the settlers
against the incursions of the Indians.
I found that the noarer I got to his
dwelling tU loss was known of him.
Whon within two miles of his house, I
asked a man to tell me where Colonel
Boone lived. He said ho did not
know any suoh man. "Why, yes you
do,", said tne wife. "It is that white-
beaded old man who lives on tho bot
tom, soar the river." A good illustra

I found the object of my search en
ca?ed in cooking his dinner. Ha was
lying in his bunk near the fire, and a
long strip of venisou wound around
his ramrod, and was busy turning it
before a brisk blaze, and using salt
and pepper to season bis meat. I at
once told him the'ohjoct of my visit.
I found that he hardly know what I
meant. I explained tho matter to
him, and ho agreed to sit. He was 90
years old, and muoh infirm. His mem
ory of passing events was rather im

A Horrible Outrage.
About 7 o'clock on Monday evening
Kate Gamble, a young girl 1G years of
ago, left her residence, in Ninth street,
Philadelphia, upon an errand. About'
a sqnaro from the house she passed her
brother, and a square further on tho
was Accosted by a man. who suddenly
seized her by both handn. She was
Urnfiod at the demonstration, and
stmgglod desperately. "Don't yen
knov, me?" asked the man. The next
instant the man drew from his packet
a largo phial, the contents of which
wero caustic potawsa. This he threw
into the face of the child and then took
to his heels. At first the girl suppos
ed the man to havo beon playing with
her, nnd wipping off what she supposed
to be water, passed on her way. Inn
few minutes the caustic penetrated the
cuticlo, and began its course into the
flush. Since then the albamtn com
posing the left eye has been so far dis
solved that tho sight is forever gone,
and in hor checks great seems have
been eaten. Tho police hare searched
ever sinco for the author of the out
rage, and believe that the child was
mistaken for sorao othor person.
Rout of the Boston Saloon Keepers.
Tho Boston (Muss.) Journal says :
"Probably at no time havo the opera
tions of tho prohibitory liquor law been
more sensibly and effectually exper
ienced by its violators than during the
past few days. The rapid succession
of seizures by the officers of the Stale
Constabulary, together with the num
erous arrests for single sales, has had
the ofTect to make the traffic uucertain
and unprofitable, and the dealers very
generally throughout the city havo
considered it their wisest coarse to
comply with tho directions of those of
ficers who havo bion so active in en
forcing the prohibitory law. Asa con
sequence nearly every publio bar in
the city is closed, with the exception
of those connected with the hotels. A
largo majority of wholesale dealers
have also complied with the demanda
made upon them, and their shutters
aro up, the frontdoor locked, and bus
iness apparently suspended."

Rather be Flogged.
In Judge Spence's court at Lynch
burg, Va., a few days ago, Capt. Don.
P. Halsey, in behalf of certain negro
olients of his who had been sentenced
to imprisonment In jail for various pet
ty offenses, moved that tho sentence to
the court be commuted to publio whip-"
ping. Two of the negroes were men
whoso families depended upon their
labor, and wore suffering while they
woro kept in durance. , These persons,
therefore, desired to be flogged and set
at largo. Tho court refused tho mo
tion, on tho ground that thoro was no
legal authority or precedent to justify
such Action. Linchburg Itopnb.
