Sir John Dul.ell's anemone "Gran

Mr. E. Bright has described to the
society of electricians, England, a
method of diselectrifying dry wool,
mohair, and alpaca, so as to enable
these substances to be spun with facili
ty. It consists in putting tho bobbins
into an exhausted chamber of iron hav
ing a metallic connection with tho
earth. Tho rarefied air permeates tho
yarn and discharges tho electricity in
from ten to thirty minutes.
Mr. Janssen has found a solid basis
of fact fur what has commonly been
ascribed to optical illusion. What is
called "tho new moon in the army of
the old" is a truth, a Jnnsscn has shown
by producing a photograph of the
"earth-shine" on the moon when threo

Ono of the most notable late achieve
ments in engineering has been tlie re
lloatitig of tho French iron-clad Riche
lieu in tlie barber of Toulon. It will bo
remembered that about Hie last of De
cember, 1H0, she took- lire and was
Kcuttled. She was brought to tho sur
face again by relieving her of all re
movable weighty iillucfiments, by seal
ins all openings, and by pumping down
air to displaco the water m the com
partments while the water was pumped
out. About 15G0 barrels, each contain
ing 1,000 litres of air, were also em
ployed. Commander Allen I). Brown, of tho
torpedo .station, Newport, R. I., says
that on Juno 11, 1711, at sea, three
hundred miles south of Panama, ho saw
a man-of-war hawk and a school of
bonitos in pursuit of a school of llying
liah. As one of the latter eamo out of
the water, closely pursued by his enemy,
the hawk swooned down not fifty yards
from the ship, out missed his prey, tho
lish apparently turning from its course
to avoid him. A second attempt was
more successful, and the hawk flow oil'
witli the llying-tlsh in its talons. Tho

Mr. II. C. Ilovey gives what may bo
called a preliminarvdouoript'on of Pick
ett's cave in tho Scientific American.
From what he says of this cavern, tho
entrance to which'was discovered last
June by boys named Pickett, to quote
tho words of the narrator: It can not bo
doubted that ono more groat attraction
is added to tho region which boasts of
Monument park, Glen Eyrie, tho Gard
en of tho Gods, Manifou springs, Piko'8
peak and other glories, all within a
radius of ten miles." Tho formation
of this cave, which seems to be in si
lurien limestone, appears to reopen an
interesting geological question.
It is not unnatural for a watering
place to depend for its prosperity upon
a floating population.
Something Like a Tragedy.
Neapolitan socielv, says the London
TcletiHtjih, has lately been much exer
cised by a terrible "tragedy, in high
life." For some time past tin; Countess
lel C'igno, n lady of extraordinary beau
ty, bus been notoriously at odds with
her husband, a gentleman to whom sho
had, at tho urgent interest of her fam
ily, most unwillingly given her hand,
her heart havinir been already bestowed
upon a young Austrian artist, who
quitted Europe for America on tho day
of her marriage, only returning; thence
to Naples a few weeks ago. Ilo became,
it would appear, a frequent guest at tho
countess' evening receptions a fact
which reached tho cars of Count del
Cigno at his club, where ho spent the
greater part of his time, by night as
well as by day. Ouo evening, just as
tho painter was issuing from the door
way of tho Pala..o del Cigno, the count
drove up to tho chief entrance, and,
whilo alighting from his carriage, no
ticed his wife on tho first lloor balcony,
waving her baud in farewell to her old
lover as ho descended tho stone steps
leading lo tho street. Without a mo
ment's hesitation tho count drew a stil
etto from the breast pocket of his coat
ami burled It lo tho hilt in tho bosom of
It is rival, who fell mortally wounded to
tho ground. As Del Cigno was getting
into his carriage, however, a bullet
from the Austrian's revolver, as it wero
in extremis, passed through his head,
killing him on tho spot, live minutes
later tho artist also breathed his last.
This horrible encounter took place un
der the very eyes of the countess, upon
whom tho spectacle of her husband's
ami lovers violent death lntlietod so
overwhelming a shock that sho became
a raving maniac, and is now under re
straint in a lunatic asylum near Naples.

Tho coincidence that both tho great
emancipators of the generation,, Abra
ham Lincoln and Alexander 11., should
die by assassination, is remarkable;
but It is still more so that in both as
sasMnations the chief assassin was him
self injured and died, for both a woman
was hanged as an accomplice, and wide
apart ns is the ordinary constitution of
sociely In the United Slate nnd Russia,
lis well ns the military strength of tho
two nations, the execution took place in
both eases under martial law, on a scaf
fold surrounded by soldiers and in a
capital garrisoned by a great army.
The Tire Temples of the Paraeos.
In a recent article on India, Prof.
Monier Williams says: Tho principal
fire temples I visited" at Bombay, Surat
and Pootia did not ditl'er externally
from small private houses surrounded
by their compounds. I was not allowed
to view their interior arrangements, but
was told that an ordinary temple con
sists of two oblong quadrangular rooms
separated by a partition, ono room be
ing set npiirt for the fire sanctuary, or
holy of holies, nnd the other assigned
to lay worshipers. In tho larger tem
ples there are often other rooms for tho
performance of certain ceremonies.
The sanctum sanctorum has a large
central stone, on which rests tho vase
like censer containing tho sacred fire,
kept continually burning anil fed day
and night with ollerin::s of fragrant
wood and gums, such as sandal-wood,
benjamin and frank incense. Some
limes a goat is killed, not saerilieially.
but for tlie sake of its fat, which is dried
and thrown into the embers, on special
occasions, to produce a brilliant ilaine.
The priests, called Mobcds, who are al
ways present in the sanctuary, have a
piece of lino linen cloth (called Penom,

"I think my son John, has a woo bit
on his glasses just now."
He laughed and asked:
"What is a boy to do?"
"Keep your own well rubbed up. and
vou will not know whether others need
it or not."
"I will," ho replied.
