Recording; Earth Tremors b j Photography
The utility of the microphone for ob
servation of earth tremors and noiBes was
soon recognized, and Italy has for some
time held a foremost place among the na
tions which have taken advantage of the
special adaptability of this instrument. It
is now found that photography possesses
admirable capabilities iu the way of sup
plementing the work of the microphone in
making these delicate records. Sir. Ba
ratta, finding some defects in a method of
mechanical registration of the motion of a
seismo-microphone, had recourse to the
A telephone wire Is connected with a
subterranean microphone. Before the tel
ephone diaphragm, and connected with its
center with a line aluminum wire, is a
short slip of the same metal, fixed l low,
and havinjf a curved piece at the top,
which rents against a small mirror, mova
ble about a horizontal axis. This mirror
reflects the light from a lamp and lens to
photographic paper on a rotated drum.
The light is momentarily shut off every
quarter of an hour by a shutter arrange
ment, worked electro-magnetically by the
clockwork which moves the drum. New

The San Angelo (Tex.) Enterprise savs:
"The term 'greaser,' as applied to Mexi
cans of the lower class, was not started, as
many suppose, as a signification of disre
spect, but was applied by a witty war corre
spondent in 184G, just after the battle of
Pala Alto, to those Mexicans who had
forsworn allegiance to their own country
and in preference to fighting token the
task of loading and unloading provision
trains, which then consisted mostly of
bacon. In this way they gained the name
of the 'greaser brigade.' " Whatever the
term implies, it is much older t han The
Enterprise supposes. It was known to the
United Suites volunteers who came to
what is now the Indian territory in 1831,
at the end of the Black Hawk war. The
story that the name Meverick. applied to
yearling cattle, was given ou account of
the head of the San Antonio family of
that name is equally fabulous. It was in
use in Louisiana before that state was a
part of the United States. Dallas News.
A Negro Turning Whit.
Green Howell, an old colored man from
Midville, is only partly colored, though a
full blooded negro, his skin being as much
white as it is black. He has white circles
around his eyes and mouth, and his neck
Is almost entirely white. The forehead and
top of his head are so white that it gives
him the appearance of being bald headed.
In reply to questions Green said that he
had been turning white for five or six
years. The skin on his body atid legs now
is almost entirely white, lie said there is
no feeling iu the change and no pain about
it, excej t that when he is iu the sun the
white skin blisters.
Green is over 50 years old. The white
skin exposed to view is as clear and healthy
looking as that of a Caucasian. Savan

A prominr ut politician was blown up ia
a Ijoiler explosion in one of the western
statesof America, but escaped with a shak
ing. Interviewed by a reporter the same
night, and describing his sensations at the
time of tiie accident, he remarked that all
the bad deeds in his whole life scorned to
pass through his mind while he was in the
air. A local paper of opposition politics
commented upon the statement next day,
and presumed that the fortunate survivor
must have been up about six weeks.
