'The mother of Victor IIu(,'o was not
content with caring for the moral and liter,
ary education ol her aon; she sought also
to developo their physical strenRth. She
forced thcui to hoc, to rake, in water tho
garden, in fact to become gardeners. This
fatigued them greatly, and was prohably
the reason of Victor's later taste tor uncul
tivated gardens, whero things grew sponta
neously, and are watered only by the rain."
"A New York merchant who lias a large
iron mill in Pennsylvania, heard a few
months ago that his employes intended to
found a small library tor their own use.
lie at ouco selected and purchased, from
his own puree, a library of five thousand
volume, provided proper apart
ments in which to take care of
it, and handed it over to
liu employes. That library will prove a
good business investment. Men worth
keeping are not likely to go away from
such a special benefit to them and their
families. The lxttter class of workmen else
where will be attracted to the mills that
offer the use of a large collection of hooks
in addition to their weekly pay, while the
mere tramps in that particular department
ot work will find the mill not at all to their
taste, for somehow drunkenness and
strikes are quite infrequunt in the neigh
borhood of good libraries."
'"We novelists cannot but smile when
asked if such and such a character is "taken
from life," and especially when ingcuioUB
critics persist in identifying usually falsely
certain persons, places or incidents.
Of course, we t'o alxmt the
world with our eyes open;
but what we see and how we use it is
known only to ourselves; but setters are
never aware they are being painted, and
rarely it ever recognize their own likeness.
Whether or not it may be allowable to hold
up to public obloquy a bad or contempti
ble character, I suppose it would be fair to
describe a perfect character if we . could
find it, which U not too probable. For me,
I can only say that during all the years I
have sudied humanity I never met with one
human being who could have been "put

that it might be tho premonition of pnalysis.
My Iriends were fearful; but after it shifted

infernally tormenting manner, I knew that
itwas rlicumitt'sm, and I sought remudiesof
different kinds, without effect, until I
chanced to boo tho advertisement of St.
Jacobs Oil, and read of its wonderful cures
when I resolved to givo It a trial. Securing
ft bottlo of tho Oil, I applied it to the parts
affected, and that night I had the first good

Change in Diseases.
From tho Nashville llunner,
Diseases like fashions aro constantly
being invented. Wo never heard of
people being sick with neuralgia until
within tho bust few years. It used to
bo head-acho, now it is neuralgia.
Formerly poonlo had "snakes" after a
long-continued spree, now it is nervous
prostration. Wo seo in tho pnpers now
nnd then that Smith or Jones died of
nervous prostration, but in our times it
was n good old-fashioned drunk, ami
nothing more, ltenlly though it sounds
much hotter to sny n friend died of that
fasliionablo complaint, than to say ho
filled a drunknrd's grave.
Water for Horses.
Tho quality, ns well as tho tempera
ture, of the water drank by horses is of
tbo .greatest importance. A sudden
cbango of water may often Induce a se
vero attack of colic, and this is so well
known to horsemen that when tho val
uable trotters and races travel from
place to phico a supply of water to
which they havo been used is always
carried with them. To Jivfd'l any ill
effects, it is better to mix a handful of
oatmeal or bran in the strango water,
nnd, if possible, to warm it a iittlo. The
temperature of springs nnd wells varies
very much, nnd a (liU'ereneo of ten or
fifteen degrees is quite frequent This
is quite sufficient to affect injuriously
tho condition of a horse, which is an
animal that easily suffers from disturb
ance of tho digestivo organs.
Tho latest dictionaries contain tho
Words "blizzard'1 nnd "boom." Now
let there lie a place for "boycott."
A Strange Discovery.
l'rofessor Tyndall, of London, has

that, when properly used, gives the
most singular results, nnd shows that
tho wonders of the photophono havo

1 he photophono has already been
described in the Companion, and von
may remember it as an instrument in
vented by Prof. Bell for causinirn beam
of light to convey a telephonic mes-nge
to a distance.
In the new apparatus a beam of li"ht
from n lime light, or even a candle, is
thrown upon a common glass llak hav
ing a long neck. To this- is fastened a
rubber speaking tube that may be
placed to the ear, so that any sounds in
the flask may be heard through the tube.
Between the llask and the light is
placed a circular disk of metal, having
narrow slots, or openings placed like
the spokes of a wheel round the edge.
When the dik is at rest, the beanuif
light may pass through one of tho sluts
and tall ou the llask.
If, now, tho disk is made to turn
rapidly on its nxis, the light w . i reach
the llask iu a .series of Hashes, as it
shines through the slots one after tho
other. Hero the curious discovery comc9
in. When the llask is lilted with a gas,
or a vapor, say tho vapor of sulphuric
ether, common street gas, oxygen, per
fumes like patchouli or cassia, or even
smoke, and the beam of light is mado to
fall on the llask in a series of alternato
Hashes, tho operator, listening with tho
speaking tube at his ear, will hear
strango musical sounds inside the llask.
The pitch of these tones will corre
spond exactly with tho speed with which
tho disk is made to turn, and each kind
of gas, or vapor, in the llask will give a
different kind of note, somo soft, somo
loud, and somo very sweet and musical.
This is certainly iho most rcmarkablo
discovery since tho photophono, and it
shows that light may bo made tho means
of making sounds audible at a distance,
even when the eye can see no difference
m tho light. It even suggests Iho Idea
that we may yet bo able to bear tho
sounds of the fires raging in tho sun. It
may, indeed, be. only a bint to yet more
wonderful and iiiitliought of relations
between light and sound, which may bo
utilized as a medium of communication.
Lopo de Vega.
Tho most )ortentous example of lit
erary fecundity on record is, beyond
question, to bo found in tho person of
Lopo do Vega. Ho thought nothino- of
writing a play In a couple- of days, a
light farce in an hour or two, nnd In tho
course of his life ho furnished tho stage
of Spain with upward of two thousand
original dramas. Hallani calculated
that this extraordinary man was tho
nuthor of at least twenty-ono million
three hundred thousand lines. Tho
most voluminous writer in modern
times an author who was in facility of
composition not far inferior to Lopo
would certainly he Bobcrt Soutliey,
whoso acknowledged works amount to
no less than one hundred and nlno vol
umes, In addition to which ho eontril)
uted lifly-two essays to tho Annutil lie
ricii', ninety-four to tho (Jmtrtciit, and
to minor magazines articles without
number. Afier Soutliey would como
Voltaire nnd Sir Walter Scott.
