At every fresh turn in the rond tlie

Even the most nnnoilly Kltinpr in mi
New York, nfter walking a mile from
the little village of White Tlainn, wonld
think he was utirely on the rocky road
to the New Jerusalem.
Up In WentcliPRtpr tlipy call the mys
terious evangelist tlie "Scripture Sling

nation rare, in paint of tlio hue of heav

All nlong those rocky roads the fences
are made of huge bowlders, out of
which rough walls tire inndo, separat

bowlders jutting out of tlio soil nlmig

stone fences, the mysterions evangelist
nufolds his warnings. I To is a littlo
man, but energetic. He is asilentman,
except with his brush, made out of hairs
plucked from the necks of oxen. With
it ho speaks. His only name is "George."
He marches, a Salvntion Army of one
man, carrying a bugle to announce his
coming. His sandy mustache bristles,
and the lines of his face show sixty
years. There bangs npon his hotid an
old straw hat, summer and winter, and
on the hat is a broad ribbon, bearing the
legend, "Jesus is mighty to save." A
cane, carved with innumerable inscrip
tions, helps him over the hills as he
marches on, carrying the battered hand
bag in which repose his restless brash,
bis pot of paint, his Dible and other little
things, such as a comb and cake of soap,
through the use of which he keeps him
self only a semiuomad. They say there
is no vanity in him, nor nny glass with
a quicksilver back in that battered bag
As he uiurches he spies a rock, biu
and brown, half hidden behind a cl.iiup
of weeds, and on which he left no me
sage when lust along that way. In a
moment the weeds are uprooted, and
kneeling by the rock ho paints, letter by
letter, "O-b-e-y t-h-e L-o-r-d." Then he
marches on reading the Dible. On a
smooth worn bowlilpr in the stone fence,
be prints, "Repent! Believe! And sin no
more." Across the road he leaves the
warning, "Yon must repent or go t
hell." A little farther on he kneel:
again, and tinder his brash grow the
words, "The wages for sinners is hell
Bre." There are painted words, though
along the roads more worldly than ILa
ones he leave there. One of them says,
"Spend yonr Snndays at Manhattan

deeper shade of blue than usual, mixed
on the spot, he painted right alongside

Hindoo Legend of Adam and Ere.
The Hindoo legend of Adam and Eve
in substance is as follows:
In the beginning God created Adima,
the first man, and Hevn, tho first wom
an, which completed life. He placed
them on the Island of Ceylon and com
manded them never to quit their place
of abode, but to remain and propagate
their kind. In the course of time in
wandering over the island they saw a
most beautiful land connected with
theirs by lofty peaks uud ragged rocks.
The land beyond was most beauteous to
behold, being covered with stately trees
whose branches hung with fruits of
every variety. Many colored birds flit
ted from bough to bough and made a
perfect din of ever changing music,
Adima (note that this is directly oppo
site to our Biblical account) tempted
and Induced Heva to violate the com'
mand of the Creator and accompany
him to the paradise across the rocky
When they had crossed the narrow
neck of land which connected their is
land heaven with the mainland, they
beard a loud, cracking noise and looked
around just in time to see the isthmus
break in two and sink beneath tlie
waters of the ocean. When it was plain
that their way back to their island para
dise had bean cut off they turned their
attention to their new home nnd found
it a land of sand, thorns, rocks and
brambles, its supposed beauty having
been but a mirage raised by Rakokasos,
the spirit of evil, to tempt them to diso
bedience. For this act they were doomed
to perpetual labor and final death. St.
Each Log fteven Cara Lonjr.
The special train bearing the ten big
logs destined for the flagpoles for the
Washington World's fair building at
Chicago will be run in three sections of
fourteen cars each. Each of the logs
equals the length of seven flat cars,
though they are loaded in such a manner
that the weight is carried by two of the
cars. With the exception of the two
largest, the logs are placed two togother
on the cars, but it was impossible to load
the two largest in that manner, owing
to their enormous weight.
The two end cars of the sections will
support the load on a raised block work
ing on a pivot. The other cars will be
empty, and the logs will extend over
them above the car floors. This arrange
ment is necessary owing to the curves in
the road. When the train is on a curve,
the first and last cars of the section will
of course not be in the same straight
line, and if the logs were supported by
all the cars, it would be impossible to
round the curves without breaking
either the logs or the cars. To overcome
this difficulty the movable blocks on the
two end cars are brought intq play, and
while the empty cars curve around a
bend in the track the pivots are also
turned, permitting the logs to always
retain the same relative position with
respect to each other.
On sharp curves the middle of the
load will be entirely clear of the cars at
the center of the section, and will lie
parallel to a tangent drawn at the outer
edge of the curve. When the curve is
passed the pivots again throw the logs
back to their original position. Spokane

TheM Cnmpntntlon Are Mndr.
At the recent meeting of the British
association a discourse was delivered by
the president, Sir Archibald Oerkie, on
ono of tho most Interesting problems in
modern science the ago of the world.
Over a centnry has elapsed since James
nutton wrote his "Thy of the Earth,
which was the first ntu nipt to formulate
chronology of creation in accordance
with the discoveries of science; since
then knowledge has made vast strides,
and his followers have access to a mass
of information which he did not possess.
Playfair and Kelvin improved upon IMs
work, and now Gerkie and the school to
which he belongs have gone beyond
Geologists have ascertained that the
rate at which erosion takes place can be
measured; by applying their scalo to the
Sedimentary rocks they have formed a
hypothesis as to the timo which has
elapsed since erosion begun. To put tho
proposition in similar language, tlio sur
face of tho globe is constantly wearing
away under tho influence of water and
wind. Tho portions which oro worn off
are carried down to the sea or into hol
lows, where they are deposited and form
sedimentary rocks. If we can ascertain
how long it takes to form a sedimentary
rocl. we can figure out when the progress
of wearing away and redepositing began.
Sir Archibald states that on a reason
able computation the stratified rocks at
tain an average thickness of 100,000 feet.
The material of which they consist was
all washed down from high planes, de
posited and left to stratify. By the in
spection of river banks it is found that
in places the surface of the land which
hss been carried down as sediment in
rivers has been reduced at the rate of a
foot in 730 years, while in other places,
where the lund was more stubborn or
less flexible, it has taken 0,800 years to
lower the surface one foot. Tho deposit
must bo equal to the denudation. Thus
we find that while some of the sedimen
tary rocks have grown a foot in 730
years others have taken 0,800 years to
rise that height. Thus the period of
time that was required to build up 100,
000 feet of sedimentary rock has varied
according to locality from 73,000,000
years to 680,000,000 years. It follows
that the active work of creation lasted
for a cycle intermediate between these
two figures. The cycle varied with end
less succession of periods of disturbance
by volcanic force and glacial action,
and the frequent submersion of dry
land, alternating with the emerging of
continents out of the seas. These may
have retarded the growth of sedimen'
tary rocks, but they cannot have accel
A study of fossils teaches the steady
uniformity with which the work of
creation proceeded. Since man began
to observe there has been no change in
the forms of animal and vegetable life.
A few species have disappeared not one
new species has been evolved. Not only
do we find the f anna and flora of ancient
Egypt as depicted on monuments which
are probably 8,000 or 10,000 years old
identical with those which are found in
that country today, but shells which in

Rocky mountains are precisely the same
species that are fonnd in the Bay of

Little by little the geologist is lifting
the veil which covers the prehistoric
record of our planet. The era which
preceded the age of civilized man, with
its vast rivers carrying down diluvial
floods to the ocean, and the bursting
forth or mountain ranges from contrac
tions of the earth's crust has been painted
to the life. But no one has exercised bis
pencil on that preceding age, when the
forests made way for clumps of stunted
birch and willow, incessant snowfalls
covered the plains, glaciers crept down
from the north, and gradually a vast
sheet of Ice half a mile thick drove man
kiud, with the mammoth and the rein
deer, to those fortunate regions which.
like California, escaped the agony of the
last ice age.
Nor have we any distinct perception
of that subsequent age when the ice
melted or receded to the pole, or dense

Beauty Anion flarasna,
Among the Babines, who dwell to the
north of the Columbia river, a large un
der lip is regarded as a typo of beauty.
A small incision is mado in the lip dur
ing infancy and a fragrant of bone in
serted. This is replaced from time to
time by larger and larger fragments,
each operation being attended with se
vere pain, and at length pieces of wood
measuring not less than three inches in
length and on inch and a half in width,
are inserted, causing tho lip to protrude
to a frightful extent. A similar custom
exists among the Paraguay Indians, and
the labnets worn by the Botocndos are
inserted in a slit mado in the lower lip.
A Botocndo haa been noticed to take
knife and cut a piece of mi at on itand
tumble the meat into his mouth. Among
the Hyduhs (Queen Charlotte islands) it
is considered a mark of the lowest breed
ing to be without this labial ornamentof
the lower lip. When a young woman
and an old one quarrel the elderly dame
will reproach the younger with her
youth, inexperience and general Igno
rance, pointing, were fnrthor proof
necessary, to tho inferior size of her lip.
This lip of beauty is not, however, pe
cnliar to these aborigines, but is com
mon nmong some of tho African tribes.
The Berrys, for instance, who inhabit
Sunbrint, a tributary or tho Nilo, insert
in the lower lip a piece of crystal an
inch in length. The Bougo women in a
similar way extend the lower lip hori
zontally till it projects; far lteyond the
upper. Tho mutilation of .both lijis is
observed among tlie women or Kadje,
in Segseg, between Lako Tsad und tlie

The Abate of Hypuntlstn.
An army of miscreants misuse hyp
notism to obtain money from their vic
tims. They are constantly exposed by
third parties, bnt seldom lose their
power over their dupes, on account of
the mesmerized condition of the latter.
Lower still in the depths of sin are
those who call themselves "massage
magnetizers," "massage hypnotists," or
tboso who advertise "electric baths,"
"massage baths," "magnetic baths" and
"magnetic treatment. There w no rea
son for their existence, unless it be in a
correctional or penal institution. Last
ly there are the artists, professors or
fakirs, who give pnblic exhibitions of
the hypnotio process. Some of throw are
honest and upright, othors ure unscrupu
lous and mercenary wretches.
All of them, however, uro to Iks care

are to be avoided even morn by young
boys and girls than by grown folks. If
any one desires to see tho marvols of
hypnotism, let him or her go to their
own fumily physician, and either he or
some other member of thut noble profes
sion will satisfy enriosity without injury
to body, brains, minds or morals.

Expiration of Famous Copyright.
Some of the good old novels are pass
ing the limitation of their copyrights. '
This year the copyright expires on
"David Copperfield," "Pendennis" and
"Alton Locke." "The Scarlot Letter"
went out of copyright early in the pres
ent year, and two or three cheap editions
promptly appeared on the American .
In England, however, the event passed"
without notice, as the book had long
since yielded the English pirate all the -booty
that could be wrung from it On
the other hand.
American publishers ore not affected
by the knowledge that copj-right on
"David Copperfield," "Pendennis" and
"Alton Locke" ends with this year.
Each of those volumes has been so freely
appropriated in this country that the''
cessation of the author's right in it will
not influence its future price with us.
But in England, where might has not -been
right in this matter, a keen com-
petition is looked for among publishers,
several of whom are understood to be
prepared to flood the market ttt tlle

cheap editions of the popular books men
