JAPAM'S GREAT EARTHQUAKE.
ITie Most Severe and Destructive to Ufe
of the Many Recent Shocks.
Japan s credited with an average of
about 500 earthquakes a year, but in 1891
the number was reported as nearly 2,500.
On Oct. 2J the shock was exceptionally se
vere and alamitous, an enormons amount
of life and property being destroyed. Ac
cording to Professor Milne, of the Seis
mological society, in the devastated dis
tricts the motion of the earthquake was
violent, bi it as it spread outward, like rings
of water on the surface of a pond, the
raves be same longer and natter, till in
Tokio people were in the same position as
oa the dec k of a Urge ship on the ocean,
there being a gent'.e swelling motion as
the waves passed below their feet. At a
railway station ten miles from Nagoya,
where tbo shock was severe, the station
master wi thrown off the platform on to
the railwt y line, and was then jolted from
ye side to the other with such violence
BAILWAV LIKES BEST BT EARTHQUAKE,
that he fe lon his knees, and, though he
caught hold of the rails, he was thrown
about, falling first on one shoulder and
then on the other. Another person who
was standing in the street saw the land
waves coning quite rapidly along the
street. T ie road moved in a series of rip
ples, splitting and opening at the same
time. - ,
The effe on the railway line, as shown
in the illustration, was peculiar. In some
places the line remained undisturbed; in
other plac it was thrown into a series of
folds, hoiizontal bends, and sometimes
sven into vertical waves. As to the causes
of earthquakes, Professor Milne attributes
them to t team and interruptions in the
process of mountain formation.
Believin? that earthquakes are associ
ated with the elevation of the ground, the
professor suggests the laying down of what
would practically be a spirit level, one or
two miles in length. By this means they
could tell whether earth tips occurred, and
whether before or after the earthquake.
A Novel Botanical Theory.
The pre alent notion that the mistletoe
is injurious to the apple or other tree on
which it f I'ows is disputed by Dr. G. Bon
nier, the professor of botany at the Paris
Sorbonne, who maintains, not only that
this is not the case, but that it is actually
beneficial to its host, the relationship being
not one o' simple parasitism, but rather
one of symbiosis. Nature tells that Pro
fessor Boniier determined from a series of
observations on the increase in the dry
weight of the leaves, that, while in sum
mer the riistletoe derives a large portion
of its nutriment from the host, in winter
these cone itions are reversed, and the in
crease in weight of the mistletoe is less
than the amount of carbon which it has
obtained from the atmosphere in other
words, that it gives up to its host a portion
of its assimilated substance.
A New Idea in Sinking; Shafts.
A new idea in shaft sinking, originated
by an English engineer, by which it is
made possible to keep the excavation free
from water, is mentioned in The Trade
Review. To do this a large bore hole is
first sunk on the site of the proposed shait,
and a pump is placed at the bottom of this
hole. Whatever water may be encoun
tered in sii king the shaft about this hole
flows into the hole and is pumped to the
surface. While this does not obviate the
necessity of pumping, it keeps the excava
tion drained and free from water.
Science in Soap Bubbles.
It may not be generally understood that
the film of soap and water composing a
Soap bubb e is in a constant state of ten
sion, and tends to contract like the balloons
sf elastic rubber so commonly sold as toys
for children. This pressure is inversely
proportions 1 to the size of the bubble, the
smaller th-i bubble the greater being the
pressure with which it contracts. This can

easily be observed by any one who will
blow a bub' lie and note the exertions neces
sary to force the air into it; but a much
better way, according to Popular Science
News, which is authority for the foregoing,
to prove th; existence of this pressure is to
blow a bubble on the bowl of a pipe in the
usual mam er and hold the stem before a
candle flame. The bubble will be noticed
to grow cot stantly smaller, while the cur
rent of air forced out through the stem of
the pipe wi 1 have a very perceptible effect
jpon the flt.me. '
A modification of this experiment com
municated to La Nature by Mr. C. V. Boys,
of the Royid society, consists in blowing
the bubble upon a large funnel shaped
tube the mouthpiece of a cornet, for in
stance. Cider these circumstances the
force of its ntraction is rendered much
nore evident, and is so great that toward
fie end of the experiment, as the bubble
