Flashing Signtals.-The interest which
has recently been taken in England in a
the sun-signals which were ilashed from t
Lord Chelmsford's army in Zululand
and Major Pearson's advanced position
at Ekowe has suggested to the directors I
of tle 1olyteclil institution a popu- a
lar subject, which has been introduced I
in the formn of an illustrated lecture. I
The flashing of signals may be and is I
done in a great variety of ways. The I
fundamnental principle of the language 1
flashed is the Morse telegraphic alpha- i
bet, or a special series of numerals com
posed of long and short signs, which i
are read off by specially constructed
dictionaries of sentences. Thus one,
two, three, four, live short flashes mean
respectively 1, 2, 3, 4, 0; one long-sus
tatned light representS (3, one long one
short7, one short one long 8, two long
one short 9, and one long two short 10.
A pause is made between each figure,
and the signal is repeated by the sender
until it is repeated by the -receiver.
Thus, three short fIlashes would be 3,
two short one long Would be 9, and two
short would be 2; the full signal 392.
Looking to the book of sentences, 392
would be fouud to be "Enemy on the
alert." The snn flashes are made by
a specially prepared instrument called
a hellograph, the )rinciple of w leh Is
simply the angulated mirror whic every
school-boy Is thoroughly famillar with.
When the days are dull and the sun not
available other means are resorted to,
one of tne most effective being a large
erection on tihe principle of the Vene

the structure at a few miles distanmee Is

lapsible drum, the colomub, magiesiumn
lamps, the electric light, the fog h'orn
and steam whistle are all slimi larly
employed for the same purpose an'd up

Let us look, for a moment, into the de

likely to be. A piece of land fitted to
produce a good crop of potatoes is in a
good condition to set to currants. To
set then four by live feet will require
about 1200 bushels, aild they should
cost about $5 per hundred, During
the first season potatoes may be planted
between the rows and between the
bushes, without materially injuring
the growth of the bushes or the yield
of the potatoes. During the second
year beans may be planted between the
rows. which, with what fruit is ob
tained, should pay the original cost.
And the third year they should pro

A Modern Medical Miracle
is without doubt tho discovery of 'Anakeals"
by Dr. bilsuce, an infalhble romedy for the
mo3t painful and exasporatingc of all diseasos,
Piles. 500.000 once anflieted mortals gladly
attest the virtue of Anakesis and suffering
Millions joyously hall the hope of relief. Tie
simple, rational, common sense nature of this
marvelous discovery of a cure so safo, easy
and certain for a 'diseaso so painful and per
sistont has excited the wonder of the people
and admiration of medical men. It is the re
sult of 40 years experience by a distinguished
scientific physician. This really great remed3
combines the soothing system of the Engl-oh
mechanical method of the French and the
heroo medical custom of American Burgeons.
"Anakosis" therefore affords almost instant
relief from pain, keeps up the raw sensitive
- tumors and both by pressure and medicAtlor
oures the most lnveterate cases. of piles. It
has stood the critical test of 20 years' us<
against the coils of ignorant imitations and
unscrupulous empiricism, over half a millior
of persons have used It and none without
benofit. Doctors of all schools prescribe it am
the nearest to an in'fa lible remedy possible.
