To call tbe McKinley Act an "act of

Can White Animals Taate or Smellr
A. R. Wallace, in an article on tbe curi
ous physiological facts bearing upon the
presence or absence of white colors in ani
mals, adduces some strange ideas from Dr.
Ogle and others. It appears that a colored
or dark pigment in the olfactory regions is
essential to perfect smell. In cases where
animals are pure white they are usually
totally devoid of both smell and taste; and
some, tbe white cat for instance, are almort
Invariably deaf. The necessity of the col
ored pigment at the nostrils explains a
curious case of poisoning that was an enig
ma even to the learned Darwin.
In one of the mountain counties of Vir
ginia white pigs were killed by eating a
nut or root which according to Darwin
bad no bad effect on porkers of dark color.
Reasoning from tbe pigment standpoint
the great evolutiouist concluded that ele
ments which were a deadly poison to ani
mals of white color were innocuous to those
, of darker hue.
, But Dr. Ogle olserves that there is no
proof that the black pigs eat tjie poisonous
roots, nuts and vegetables to which those
of white color fall a prey, lie thinks that
Darwin's theory of "constitutional differ
ences in animals of opposite colors" is not
the proper explanation, but that the black
pigs reject the poisons because they are dis
tasteful, while the white ones, being de
ficient or wholly without the faculties of
amellor taste, greedily devour everything
In the vegetable line and are killed accord

A story once told by a man prominent la
Judicial circles illustrates tbe ronnd&bcnt
way in which many men, like to impart In

at the time spoken of, and having a f iw

up objects of interest in the vicinity. !i

the conversation. "Say!" ha remark ad
genially. "I can tell the judge all abtat
that cascade, for I tiva aloae by it."
Tbe "jedira" turned to him, aaying Mat
he should be most grateful for aba informa
tion. "It's aa easy as pie," said the count 7
man. " 'Taint no great of away ont on the

"How'll you know it? Why, it's right

"Hut how shall I know his house?"
"Why. you'll see Iilsley around some

Captain Parselle once was a few hours
out from London in the English channel in
a SWO ton ship, of which he was the chief
officer. The sky was murky, but not abso
lutely cloudy, and the channel waters we -e
calm, though there was a fresh bree.c
blowing from ths west at such a rate as t o
compel them to sail under reefed mai t
tsail and double reefed topsails.
On their lee wiis a brig. "My capta n
ami I." said Captain Parseile. "werestanl
intj on ilet.k. 1 had given orders for the
watch to le called, and they were then as
sembled e n the poop deck. The capta n
said, '.Mr. Purselie, 1 think the lighthou-e
ought to visibh liy this time,' meanii "

till I got alottt sixty feet aloft, and su l
denly, when just !n that perilous positio 1,
I heard a terrible shout from the deck. I
looked down to see what was the matter,
and just aa I did so a mountain of wator

"The rebt of what happened I discovered
after my recovery. The wave took off ev
ery strip of rigging and canvas, all the
yards, boats and arms and left the sh p
with only her masts standing. We ri.n
back to the Isle ef Wight and anchored ,a
the Solent to ascertain the extent of the
damage, aud then we discovered the most
wonderful thing of all. Tbe ship bad been
sheathed with copper, aud that wave h;l
stripped its top sheet oft for eighty feet of
the ship's length and just as clean as a
mechanic's sheers could have done."
The brig, which had been lying to lee
ward, had been stripped clean to the decic,
masts and ail, as if an army of carpenters
had been at work. The watch bad bex n
swept overboard and every man of them
lost. A sea wave such as this is as distinct
from the sea waves ordinarily encounten d
as a cyclone from an ordinary windstorm
A Grammatical Pupil.
A country schoolmaster in the neighbor
hood of Manchester the other day, after
(riving one of his pupils a sound drubbing
for speaking ungrammatically, sent him
to the other end of the room to inform an
other boy that he wished to speak to hiin,
at tbe same time promising to repeat tbe
dose if be spoke to him ungrammatically
Tbe youngster being quite satisfied with
what he had got determined to be exact.
and thus addressed his fellow pupil:
There is a common substantive of mas
culine gender, singular number, nomira
tive case and in an angry mood, that s ts
perched upon the eminence at the other
end of tbe-oom, wishes to articulate a few
sentences to you in the present tense.
The universal testimony of thrse who
have used ReicTe German Cough and K'd
ri'iy Ctr is that for tbe ailments of cfcilt?-
hood it is the best thing in tbe wori i.
The following from a worthy resident of

ibe desired result:
