A GREAT KATCRALIST.
Francois Huber, the Swiss naturalist, lost
his sight at an early age, became an eminent
entomologist, and wrote ou bees, ants aud
other insects. His son, Pierre, and a servant
named Kurnens aided him in making many
valuable original observations on the habits
of these creatures. Although tbe servant and
son rendered invaluable aid, it was admitted
by both that the elder Huber was the master
mind In tbe preparation of their many books
na papers ou entomology, aoology and me
teorology. Many believe that Huber would
have become as eminent in his special branches
is either HumtKildt or Cuvier could he have
had the use of his eves.
HUNTER, DRIVER AM) SURVEYOR.
John Metcalf, a most wonderful produc
tion of the last century, was born at Enares
borough, Yorkshire, England, in 1717. At
the age of 4 years a hard attack of tbe mea
sles struck him totally blind so blind that
tbe brightest rays of the sun gave him no
perception of light. Yet he did not give ud
in despair. A calamity had overtaken him
which would have benumbed the faculties of
a less courageous man forever. Sot so with
John Metcalf. It seemed only to brighten
his remaining sense. At first be learned
music, and. at the age of 12, was tbe moat
expert violinist in all England. When ha
arrived at man's estate he was owner of a
bouse, a small farm and a horse and car
riage. At the age of 23 be was a well
known carrier, engaged in the occupation
of carrying persons through the crowd
ed streets to and from places of amuse
ment. Besides his street work he fre
quently engaged to carry travelers to
X ork, a distance of sixteen miles. In all
this hazardous work he was aa trusty
as any man with two eyes, and got into but
few dinicultifts from which he could not
easily extricate himself. He became a great
hunter and followed the bounds with as much
pleasure and as surely as the most keen eyed
hunter. He had bis own horse and could tell
tbe baring of his own bounds among hun
dreds. At the age of 40 be began tbe study of
surveying and bridge building. This not for
idle pastime, but for profit. At one time be
was tbe omcial surveyor of 1 orkshire. Even
to this day there are dozens of monuments to
John Metcalf in his native shire iu the shape
of elegant road beds and splendid bridges.
At Huddorslield one of the Uuest and most
sulstantial bridges is knowu to have been
constructed by him. What he-could have ac
complished with organs of sight unimpaired
we can ouly conjecture. John n . Wright

A Blind Man Wbo Could See).
A beggar was sitting in a New York street.
holding out a liattered hat. The following
placard was hung about bis tieck: "Please,
good people, help a poor blind man wbo was
once rich, but who has beeu reduced from af
fluence to poverty. You will never regret
it." Preseutly along came a pleasant faced
man with a sharp, shrewd eye. He looked
at tbe poor old beggar curiously for a mo
ment, and then suddenly drew back his arm
as though to strike him a blow in the face.
Tbe movement was only a feint, but it served
the purpose. The beggar jumped back about
yard aud started on a run up the avenue,
winding bis way in and out among tbe pa an
ing vehicles with wonderful skill for a blind
man. New York Star.
