How Mushrooms Grow:
A41aW years ago the banks of the lot
opposite the Brunswick Hotel, Roston,
were sodded and the land leveled to its e
presnt grade. As the pick of the
workmati broke up the soil, a white a
substance ran through every piece.
Starting with large branches,it divided I
and snbdivided like the velis on the I
back of tho hand. Tihe smell was very t
strong"quickly noticed on the opposite
side of the 'way. This subterranean
white vein : for it had that appearance: i
was nothing but the hidden part of the t
Coiprinus comatus, a mushroom freely E
eaten now, although twenty years ago .
thought to be poisonous. The common u
name Of this substance Is "spawn.'' t
Just as a cutting of the grape vine 1
placed in conditions favorable to growth b
will shoot up. put forth branches and It
bear fruit, so a part of this corprinus 1;
viie., transplanted will continito to b
ramifyand in time show the result In P
the .for'm of mushrooms. The whole
earth beneath your feet, on a country t
walk,ii alive wath vegetation to at great i
depth. This vegetation is just as real, c
and the various vines-or, la other L
words, the thousand varieties of mush
room spawn-are Just as distinct as the d
hop vine and the woodbine,the ivy and c
the virgin's bower that twine their a
tendrils over your head. Just where 0
grew this year a peculiar kind of toad- U
stool, there next year, and so on for e
successive harvests, will you find the e
same plant. There Is no more mystery b
about its appearance than in the growth v
of the chestnut on the tree that shades v
it. Rapidity of growth is not near so p
general as It is thought to be. The a
common mushroom aud many others c
form for (lays Just below the soil. A *
heavy dew or an evening shower ivill k
straighten the sten of the inngus and e
expand Its top. It bretks the earth in a :
the night, atid the gatherer Is able to 8
find in the morning the white buttons a
where he could see nothing the day
before. So, popular error hai made p
mushroom growth proverbial for a u
superficiality, which, by the fungi, at a
least, Is undeserved. Further, the va
riousvarietiesof toadstools succeed enioh It
other In rotation, Just as the bloodroot
and anemons of spring are followed by a
the roses of summer and the cardinal or b
geutlan of fall. Those are not theories
that-are here advanced; they are the e
results of several years' careful watch- e
Ingof the grow th of this order of plants. t
On the very spors where, in 1874, 1 v
gathered mushrooms, there, In 1879, 1 v
found the Identicalvariety; so that the d
lover of fungus may have his regular f,
harvest with all the certainty of the 11
farqier who looks for a return of his 0
wheat'crop, or the results of his oran
berryi culture. With Just that degree a
of certainty, no more or no less, for, as t
certain years are fqvorable to the pro- a
duction of certain fruits, as the potato 0
crop sometimues fails, anld the apple
orchard Is barren, so the mushrooin
spawn, usually producing abtundantly v
Its expected variety, may pass a year, s
or even, under dillculties, become ex- e
tinct. Th'le blight which may visit all i
life, animal or vegetable, does not fail a
to fall at times upon my humble frienids.
Catacombs, of J'alermno.
T.lui strangest of all strange sights at
Palermo are the catacombs of the Capu. a:
chins. Wec are all familiar with the
character of' the Roman andl Neapolitan
catacomibs-undergrou nd excavations,
remarkable for their great extent, and C
for their associations with the history
of' the early Christian Church. Tihae
Palermo catacombs have a frightful
peculiarity of thir own. You descend
from the little church, just outside theC
walls, not by deep, subterranean pass
ages, but into a succession of' vaults,
well lighted, and of no greater depth
than an ordinary cellar. Tihese vaultsf
are long and narrow corridors,on either i
side of which, in niches cut out of the a
wall, ranged in ghastly raanks, are pre
served the bodies of the dead, not con
lined out of sight, but cacth In the garb
appropi:iate to it while living, or else
lai a long robe or winding sheet. Below
those niches are wooden coffins, with
windows at the side to showv the faces
~of the occupants. Overhead near the
ceiling are skeletous of ch iilren sitting,
or of men reclinilng; all perfectly pre
served, some with the skin still cover
ing the bones, others haviaig nothing
loft but skull and shoulders and ria>
bones, with the arms in front, pionely
crossed. Some peculiarityv of the sol
prevents the ordana.iy decomposition,
and men buried nearly two hundred
years ago still survive in this skeleton
company. Strange to say, thtey are not
permitted to rest in peace. On the 2di
day of November ian every year, the
four de rnorts, or festival of the dead,
their relatives flock to this dismal place
and the well-known mumumeries are
taken out of their glazed cofins, andt I

Wkei tie crew of the raft are in her,
they increase the buoyancy by inflating
the tube by means of eight or ten valves,
which are worked by hand, the full in
flation occupying a quarter of an hour.
The buoyaucy of the raft was satisfac

anchor off the House of Parliament, for
the purpose of showing the handiness
of the craft to a number of honorable
members assembled on the'Terrace. As
a test of buoyancy, the whole of the i
crew and passengers stood at one aide a
of the craft, yet it remained as trim and

were in it. The craft will cost $500,
