COVERNOR EYRE STILL ALIVE;

The death of Commander Brand

the most stirring events in the histor,
of the last fifty years. Commande

is horrible reading, even now. Four
hundred negroes were executed, six
hundred were flogged, a thousand
houses were burned to the ground, and
at the end of it all Governor Eyre was
recalled. England was divided int(
two camps. John Stuart Mill could
not rest until Eyre had been tried foi

Jamaica is not the only scene of
Governor Eyre's activity. He has
faced all the perils of the Australian
desert. Nobody had ever penetrated
the depths of the desert when Edward
John Eyre, the Yorkshire clergyman's
son, who had set up as a sheep farm
er on the Lower Murray River, made
up his mind to leave his sheep and
make discoveries. Sixty years ago,
in 1840, the Government of Australia
selected him to lead five Europeans
and three natives into the interior.
The journey proved to be impossible,
and the party turned back after find
ing two lakes which had never been
Again Eyre set out; he determined to
reach West Australia by the coast.
That dreary stretch of a thousand
miles was a quite untrodden path
when the Victorian era began, and it
was Edward John Eyre who told us
what we know of it to-day. It is a
long and painful story-a story of
tragedy and horror, lit up with bright
gleams of heroism; a story of pathos
and treachery, and peril. Again and
again Eyre and his four companions
-Baxter and three blacks-were face
to face with death by starvation; tkey
had killed their very horses, which
they had loved as friends in solitude.
Baxter pleaded to be taken back, but
Eyre went on, and one night he came
to his hut to find Baxter murdered
and two of the blacks gone. He was
alone in' an unknown desert with a
black boy as his only companion and
a dead Englishman whose murderers
With the aid of his faithful servant
he laid the body of the Englishman in
a blanket on the rocky ground; to dig
a grave was impossible. Then, leav
ing the dead between the desert and
the sea, the two went on and on. King
George's Sound was reached at last,
and a French whaler lay off the coast.
It was heaven to the weary travelers,
and for eleven days they rested and
lived on decent food Three weeks
more took them to Albany, and from
Albany they reached Adelaide again
by the sea.
Such was the end of one of the most
perilous exploring feats on record. Ed
ward John Eyre and the boy Wylle,
whose name should be set down among
the heroes, were the first human be
ings to set foot on a thousand miles
of our empire at the other side of the
world. For twelve months they were
unheard of, and when they emerged
from the desert to tell their stories to
the world, they were not quite the
same men who had left Spencer's Gulf
the year before. They had passed
through twelve months of agony al
most unrelieved. But they had added
one more page to the book of ht man
knowledge, and it is for this that the
world owes some gratitude to the
brave old man who is living quietly
down in Devonshire to-day.-St.
The Cinematograph FAretold.
The Photographic Chronicle recalls
the fact that over forty years ago Sir
John Herschel predicted- animated
photography. "What I have to pro
pose," he wrote in 1860, "may appear
a dream, but it has the merit of being
a possible and perhaps a realizable
one. It is the stereoscopic represen
tation of scenes in action-a battle, a
hebate, a public solemnity, a, pugilis
tie conflict, a harvest home, a launch,
anything within a reasonably' short
time which may be seen from a single
point of view."
All that Sir John demanded was to
be able to take a photograph in the
tenth of a second. His dream is real
ized In the cinematograph, for which
the tenth of a second would be unnec
essarily long. The prevision was
noteworthy, even for so clear sighted
a man as the younger Herschel.,

The best test for rubies and emer

d Nearly every ruby and all emeralds
b have many defects which are so char

duced in artificial stones. True em
f eralds have minute enclosures of
Lt liquids and curious dendrites. Sap
s phires also show peculiar netlike for
d mations. A magnifying power of 100
diameters suffices to reveal the char
acteristic defects. For diamonds a
good test is that of hardness. A gen
uine diamond cannot be scratched by
a file or by quartz, and'a ruby should
stand a similar test; but emerald is
not much harder than quartz and
MAKING PLASTER OF PARIS,
A New French Proces--Regulatlng the
Plaster of paris is made by baking
Slumps of gypsum, which contain a
a certain amount of water in combina
Stion with the other materials. It is
the replacing of this missing fluid
Ssubsequently that leads to a harden
Sing of the plaster. The water enters
into a chemical union with the dry
powder and thus disappears.
According to "The Scientific Ameri
3 can," the French chemist Le Chatelier
Shas discovered that when the gypsum
' is baked at a t.mperature below 160
Sdegrees centigrade (320 Fahrenheit)
a quarter of the water remains be
t hind. The temperature should be
Sraised at least to 165. Moreover,
some means should be employed to
1 exclude the smoke and other impuri
- ties which get into plaster that is
s prepared in one of the usual ways.
e Until recently, a thoroughly white
a plaster involved so much labor as to
1 be rather costly. Accordingly, a num

SThe Perin furnace is one of the best

pushing the dehydration of hot gases;
besides, as it makes eight furnacefuls
Sin 24 hours, the uroduction is rapid

great economy of combustible. It
consists of a heating furnace and a
baking chamber; the furnace, heated
by coke or other smokeless combusti

metallic cylinder revolving about its
axis upon mechanically operated rol

.sum, which rolls upon itself by the
Scontinuous movement of the drum, so
Sthat its particles are successively ex
posed to the hot gases which traverse
it. Above the drum is the charging
Sbin, in which the gypsum is heated
Sprevious to its introduction, being
surrounded by a series of tubes which
are heated by the discharge gases.

Contrary to the common belief boil
are not indicative of blood disease,
They are really indications of local
poisoning by puss-bearing germs, and
the boil is an abscess. Every pus
prick, every scratch, every abrasion,
every cut with a razor or pocketknife,
every splinter that enters the skin
may cause a boil. Nor need the wound
be a serious one; it may be so minute
as to be invisible to the unaided eye,
Nor is the result always produced, for
if it should be, every slight wound,
every thorn prick, every scratch of a
cat, every bite of a dog, every abra.
sion of the skin, would 1"' followed
by disastrous, ,if not fatal, conse
quences. The reason for this immu.
nity is that there is a certain inherent
power of the body to resist these nox_
ious agents, and it is only when the
powers of the body are weakened b3
disease that the morbific agents can
thrive in the body and accomplish
their evil work.
In this sense, then, boils are dis
eases due of the blood, but it is not a
disease in itself. High living also fa.
vors boils. Dr. Reid, speaking of pus,
and incidentally of boils, says: "Job
was probably run down by a long pe
riod of debauchery. We read that the
devil had him in tow some time before
his boils broke out. If, now, he could
have had the counsel of three good
physicians, instead of as many tire.

his system toned up; his broken pots.
berd, with which 'he scraped himself
withal,' thus spreading sympathy and
infection, would have been taken from
him, and he would have been taught a
few lessons in sanitary science in
stead of theology."
The reason why a boil is always in
the worst place is because that is the
most exposed place. The back of the
neck, where the collar rubs the mi
crobes 1ito the skin; the wrist, where
the cufflrritate, and make the en
trance of germs more easy; the top of
the foot, where the shoe pinches; the
razor-swept chin - are all favorite
"worst places."-From the American
Druggist and Pharmaceutical Record.
On the Shores of the Yukon Delta.
During the past year an officer of
the Coast Survey traversed the front
of the Yukon delta, the first white
man who had ever followed this shore.
He was accompanied by three men,
and the party, with all their provis
Ions and camp outfit, was carried in
ad open canoe and a small rowboat.
&t the river mouths there is compara
tively deep water immediately off th
coasti but between these the diAtincŽ
tion between land and sea is very in
lefinite, and the mud banks laid bare
at low tide may be a mile or more in
width. Even with a canoe drawing
but a few inches of water it was of
ten impossible to get closer to the
shore, so that to make camp it was
necessary to pack outfit and provis
bns on the men's backs, sinking at
every step knee deep in the thick, blue
mud. Even ashore, however, the difil
•ulties were not past. For long
stretches this coast is but a few inches
bove ordinary high tide. On account
of its shallowness this part of Bering
Sea is subject to extraordinary tides.
When the w-i-d blows strong from the
northeast the water goes with it, leav
ing extensive bare flate and shoals
along the shore, while with an oppo
site wind the water piles up in Norton
Sound, flooding the lower portions of
the delta coast, as is evidenced by the
line of drift-wood nearly always to be
seen some distance Inland. One night
the party were rudely awakened by
the water running through their tents,
and went out to find the tide over the
bank on which they were camped.
After that they took the precaution to
elevate their beds.-G. R Putnam, in
An Emergency Case.
The doctor in charge of the school
had always laughed at the idea of our

then had said: "You teach the children

LEPROSY IN THE UNITED STATES.
Some Alarm Occasioned by the Results of
a Scientific Inquiry.
According to scientific investiga
tions directed from Washington for
several months, there are at least
275 cases of leprosy in the United
States. That number have been re
ported, but it is thought probable that
the real number is nearer a thousand.
For various reasons physicians who
have eases of this disease in many in
stances fail or refuse to report them.
But the number reported is sufficient
ly large to occasion some alarm.
Seventy-four of the known cases are
in New Orleans,chiefly among the Ital
ian population. There are 23 in Min
aesota, mostly among Scandinavians in
the rural settlements. There are 15
cases in North Dakota, and two in
South Dakota, among the said people.
So far as has been ascertained, there
are none in Michigan or in Indiana;
Chicago has five cases, New York six,
The figures now compiling represent
a great deal of careful work. A cir
cular letter was sent from here to
every city and county physician, every
health officer, every responsible head
of a hospital, in the country. It called
for volunteer information covering
cases of leprosy in the community in
question; the name of the leprous
person, thb sex, age, social condition,
place of residence-whether town or,
country-and name of attending phy
sician. In all, 8000 of these letters have
gone out; replies have thus far been
recived from only 2000 of them. There
may be several times 275 cases in the
6000 districts from which thus far no
replies have come.
It is the intention of those who are
compiling the figures to make a report
to Congress, including such recom
mendations as may seem warranted.
One recommendation will be for the
erection of two large government hos
pitals for lepers, one in the south andl
the other in the north. Eminent phy
sicians have at different times been
before committes of Congress in the
interest of the erection of leper hos
pitals, but nothing came of these vis
its, the government having no reliable
data covering the prevalence of the
disease. Next winter, however, with
full information on the subject, it is
believed that Congress will act
It is noteworthy that nearly all the
275 reported victims are foreigners.
The Scandinavians seemed peculiarly
susceptible to the disease. They either
had it when they landed in America
or contracted it soon after landing.
Every one of the cases in the Dakotas
*and Minnesota is in the country, rath
er remote even from the small towns.
The disease seems to be spreading
most rapidly in Louisiana, and for sev
eral years there has been agitation
there in favor of effective public su
pervision and control of all leprous
patients, either by the state or by the
federal government.-New York Post.

It was a runaway match. The
young couple had nothing to live on
but love, and they grew thin on it,
for the butcher, baker, etc, etc., heart
lesly refused to barter any of the ne
cessaries of life for a bit of love; and
the landlady wouldn't accept even a
large slice of it for rent.

It is interesting to find a prominent
French critic, Louis De Gramont, ad
vocating the formal adoption of Eng
lish as a universal language because
of its simple syntax. The recent dis
cussion at Paris of the proposed new
language Esperanto, an artificial con
struction, has given a new interest
to the subject and caused the jour
nals to pote the rapid extension of
English. It is apparent that the
French cannot hope that their own
speech will ever regain its former
popularity among foreigners, and sta
tistics prove that unless the present
tendency shall change the language
of Shakespeare and Milton (with
some important modifications) will
pass into universal use. It is sig
nificant to recall that less than a cen
tury ago English was spoken by only
30,000,000 people. Now it is the com
