How the Ancient Creeks and Romans
TelesrrapUcvl to One Another.
The ancient 'jreeks and Romans prac
ticed telegraphy with the help of pots
filled with strew and twiirs saturated in
oil, which beinj: placed in rows expressed
certain letters, ic'ordinK to the order in
which they wet e lighted; but the only one
of their contriv mces that merits adetailed
description was that invented by a Grecian
peneral named .ICnea-s, who flourished in
the time of Ari -totle, intended for commu

It consisted, says The Industrial World, of
two exactly similar earthen vessels tilled
wit h water, eat h provided with a cock thnt
would discharge an equal quantity of
water in a given time, so that the whole or
any part of tin contents would escape in
precisely the Hum? period from both ves
sels. On the surface of each floated a piece of
C'irk, support Hi; an upright, "narked off
into mrisions. each division having a cer
tain sentence inscribed upon it. One of the
vessels was placed at each station, mid
when either inrty desired to communicate
he lighted a ! vh, which he held aloft un
til the oi her tli I the same, as a sign that
he was all attention. On the sender of the
message lowe ing or extinguishing l,js
torch each patty immediately opened the
cot k of his vessel, and so left it until the
sender rclightt 1 liis torch, when it was at
once dosed, .'he receiver then read the
sentence on the division of the upright,
that was level with the month of theves-,
sel, and which, if everything had leen ex
edited willi exactness, corresponded with !
that of the sender, and so conveyed the de
sired infnrmat -on.

kinds of electricity the static and the dy
namic and when the latter state is instan
taneous, it is referred to as the "electric
discharge," vhich occurs when opposite
electricities s ek each other and the bodies
return to a s ate of equilibrium or neu
tralization. These bodies, if insulated,
obtain no mote electricity after the spark
has passed, out if there be a constant
source of negative electricity supply
ing one ai:d a constant source of
negative elec ricity supplying the other,
there will be a succession of sparks; and if
they communicate by a conductor there
will be, through this conductor, an un
interrupted rout ralizat ion of a continual
reunion of the two electricities, and this
is what is terned I 'ie continuous dynamic

A FAIR ATTORNEY.
AlasI the world Iia.s Rone away
Since Cousin Lillian entered college.
For she has erown so learned, 1
Oft tremble at her wondrous knowledge. '
Whene'er 1 dare too woo her now
She frowns that I should so annoy her.
And then proclaims, with lofty brow.
Her mission, is to be a lawyer.
Life glides no more on frolden wings,
A sunny waif from El Dorado;
I've learned how true tho poet sings.
That cominsj sorrow casts Us shadow.
When tutti frutti lost Its spell.
I felt some hidden grief impended:
When she declined a caramel
1 knew my rosy dream had ended.
She paints no more on china plaques.
With tints that would have crazed MuHUo,
Strange birds that never plumed their backs
When Father Noah braved tho billow.
Her fancy limns, with brighter brush, !
The splendid triumphs that await her.
When, in the court, a breathless hush
Gives homage to the keen debater.
Tis sad to meet such crushing noes
From eyes as bluo as Scottish heathen
'Tis sad a maid with cheeks of roso
Should have her heart bound up in leather.
'Tis sad to keep one's passion pent.
Though Pallas arms the fair environ;
But worse to have her quoting Kent
When one is fondly breathing Byron.
When Lillian's licensed at tho law
Her fame, be sure, will live forever;
No barrister will pick a flaw
In logic so extremely clever. ,
The sherilT w ill forget his nap
To feast upon the lovely vision.
And e'en the judge will set his cap
At herand dream of love Klysian.

I didn't think uuihin about the watch."
"I can't help yon any," said the officer,
as he turned away.

put you on your guard. If you carry
any valuables about you keep your eyes

with lots of wicked folk's in it, and
