- A Polysphenic Ship.--For the last six
years, the Rev. C. M. Ramus, Rector
of East Guildeford and Playden, Eng
land. has hold his invention of the poly
sphenic shi1p at the disposal of the Ad
miralty. This vessel, it is calculated,
will kiin the seas at the rate of forty
miles an hour or more. Tie word
"skim"'' discloses the secret of the idea,
for the invention Is mainly based oin
the fact that it a vessel Can be made
by the mere force with whlehi it moves
to ride over thn waves mistead of driv
Ing through them, there is a prima
faeie reason to believe that a much
higher speed thian anything yet reached
will be achieved. The principle of Mr.
Ramtus's Invention consists in making
the bottom of the vessel a series of in
clined planes. In1 1872 Mr. Ramus
made a model having its bottom coml
posed of two parallel and consecutive
inclined planes; or the vessel may be
described as made of two wedges, the
thick ends of wliieh are placed abaft the
thin ends. There Is thus in the centreof
the vessel a ridge where tie thin end
of the sternmost Wedge abits agalist
the thick end of the foremost. Any
foating body thus shaped imust, when
driven forcibly through the water,
tend to rise, and if the speed Is high
enough it will 'se On the surface In
stead of driving through the water.
These facts were demonstrated by some
rough experiments made in the pres
ence of creditable witnesses. The pro
pelling power in thes experiments was
a six ounce rocket. II one trial the
model veighing 3 pouids 3 ounces, ran
a distance of 105 yards in 3 seconds.
In another it ran 480 feet in 4%, see
onds, the Wiater being ripple([ by a
strong breeze, but. In spite of tumis the
the (leek was0 found to be dry. The
principle underlying these models, says
The Mechanic, may be taken advantage
of to constrtet wedge-shaped ships. for
it has been demonstrated that the resis
tance to such vesel, which It fIrst in
creases about as the square of their ve
locity, decreases as the sped is ang
umented, until after a certain perliod
there is no further increase of resis
tance. Given the required machlIinery,
then, for propclliig the polysphentei
ship and there seems to overy proba
bility that speeds of forty miles am
liour or more can be attaltied.
The Lightninig-Rod. - The 8t. Louls
Academy of Sciences has been throw
ing light upon the lightiig-rod, con
cerning which, said Professor Niplier'
there are many popular delusions.
On(e is, that. if onec or two rods voitail
mng an equal anoiunt of- metal be hol
lowed out, thus giving it greater. ex
panse, its conidtictive poier would be
greater thait that O1' the other. Te
truth is that they would be eqnally
good condIuctors. Another erronecouaS
impressin which 11he Professor pro
ceetled to dispel was that a current, oi
electricity runs along lie surface of a
wire. tit reality it extends through
the entire wire When the eircuit is
made, Mr. Nipher said, b~uit w biic the
circuit is closed, it aectunitlates upon
the surface of the cotiductor. A strong

The First IBalloon Ascent.
A balloon floats in tie air for the
samte reason that a cork floats on water
-it Is lIghter. The first successful
trfals were mnatto with bags filled wvith
wvarmn air. Smoke generally rises be
cause It contaIns a good deal of warm
air. It is in this wvay that "fire bal
loons"' are used at the present time.
One of the first balloons of this kind
wvas madeby Live brothers named Mont
golier, in France, in 1783. They used
some coarse linen, wvhich they cut into
shapes so that when thbey were together
at the edges they formed a big bag
about thirty feet across when bhowvn
out. They lIned this bag wvith paper
and, as they wanted to dry the iuiside,
It was hung up, amid a fire was lighted
under it for thIs purpose. Th'lis wvarmi
ed the air inside, and as it got full or
this dry warm air it wantetd to go up.
This smoke balloon set tie brothers
thinking of a plan by wvhleh they could
keep it full of warm air. Tihey soon car
ried it into effect by putting mat the bot
tom of tihe bag cross poles, to which
they fixed a grate, and lighted a fire of
chopped straw, In five minutes tihe
bag had swelled out to its full size, and
took eight men to hold it down. Thmis
balloon, when so filled, wvas able to lift
a weIght of five hundred pollnds, so
thej hunlg a basket underneath, a:md put
into.,It a sheep, 'a duc1k and a cock.
They went up a height of nearly onle
thousand Jive hundred feet, and travel
ed a little miore than two miles. How
the an'ials liied 'their extraordinary

found, thme sheep was quietly feeding

FARM AND GARDEN.
BoYs oN A FAIM.-There Is a saying
that one boy Is a boy, two 1loys are half
a boy, and three boys are no boys at all.
An uncomplimneitary statement with
some semblance of verity, but lacking
tie ring of absolute truth. When a boy
is old enough to save steps he takes his
ulace as a considerable factor in the
domestic pi-oblem. Ills energies need
competent direction ; so do those of'
most men. With Increasing years lie

tice is to spread the mamiuae upon the
plowed ground and to work It ina with
a harrow. This is most conveniently
lone by having inutire in a fine co'idi
tion. Fine nanure may be made in
two ways; either by Iiling It and rnt
tIig it Inl the heap, or by using only
siort litter. It is found In Practice
that it pays to cut the litter with a fod
lier cutter, so that it will not only ab
-orb miore of the lIquitd manure, but
1iat It cam be easily spread when fresh.
The ordinary harrow VIil then mix
the iimanure w iLiithie soil in the most
'llective iianiier. With long manure
he work IS not so easily done, but it
imy be accomplished by persevering.
lhe niure will be drawn into heaps,
loibtless; but by freeing the harrow

bite generally occurs in five or six
hours. 'Tie pain, n hich is severer than
a be sting at the start, becomes more
inl dI more excrulciating to the last. The
limbs, and especially the head, become
greatly swelled. If the victim lastroig
he may live a few hours longer, and
then die of general mortifleation. The
rattlesnake can neither spring uponi a

narily, snakes bite only when they are
provoked. Where vipers and smaller
snakes are found, woodmen and others
should wear thick boots, as they seldom
attempt to bite above the ankle, and
their fangs penetrate tile leather. A
