The Katydid Orclnstra.
An article in a recent number oi
Science on the katydid orchestra is
extremely interesting. The writer
states that tiis is one instance in na
ture of concetel and continued efforts
of harmony. The katydids keep time,
and are the only members of the in
sect kingdom that do this on any ex
tended scale. He says: "So soon as
the sun has set and twilight is ad
vancing, the katd:ids in t2e trees be
gin to 'tune up.' The first notes are
sattercd, awkwarl and without
rhythm; but, if no wind is blowing,
thousands soon join in, and from that
time until daylight breaks there is no
intermission. it is inarvelous that
the organs can withstand this con
tinual rubbiug for eight hours.
By choosing out an insect close by and
listening to it wione, I have convinced
myself that the same insect keeps at
it at least for hours at a time. Theso
raspings are seldom three at a time, as
the popular name would imply, but
are the result of usually four or five,
sometimes six, distinct but closely
joined mov^ments." When a large
number of k:ttyKiids are engaged in
this musii l exercise, there are tho-e
with louder :ones who see:m to occupy
the positiou as leaders, or first violin
ists. They hold the time measure
often is spite of the wind, which
usually stops the performance of the
moro timid, and soon draw out the
lost notes of the others once more in
regular measure or beat.

PLEASANT LITERATURE FOR
ENGLISH WOMEN AND FALSE HAIR.
Hair dealers say that the English
women wear more false hair than
those of any other Nation, particular
Iv now when most other women wear
none. The custom and extensive ad
vertisement of waves, bangs, fronts,
etc., in their papers confirm the state
ment. --New York World.
BEWARE OF MACKXNTOSUES.
A well-known doctor declares that
mackintoshes and pneumonia are
twins. Any rubber garment, whether
of silk or wool on the outside, is a
very warmn garment, and consequently
there is a constant temptation to wear
one with nothing in the way of a wrap
underneath. But almost all mackin
toshes are loo=e, with only sling
sleeves or no sleeves at all, so that
while they exclude dampness they
freely admit the chilling wind just
where the body is most sensitire. A
long circular cloak of serge makes a
better storm cloak than the most ex
pensive imported mackintosh, and an
ulster is best of all.-Chicago Times

Miss Consuelo Vanderbilt, if we
mistake not, is only the third lady of
American birth to become a B3ritish
neeress of the first rank-a Duchess.
At preseut, it is interesting to note,
seventeen out of our nineteen "reign
ine" 1)achesses are un questionablyv
British. The twvo exceptions are the
Duchess of Devoushire and the
Duchess or Fife, the onio of whom is
German, and the other of whom, in
view of the recent controversy, it mayn
be best to describe as ".European." Of
the seventeen Duchesses who are Brit
ish, eleven are Euglish, (though ouc
of them was born and bred in Szot
land, and auothwr is au Anglo-Indian),
five are Seattish, and one i-s Irish. Oi
the eleven Ducehesses who are English,
one is married to a I)uke who is Seot
tish, one to a Duke who is almuosi
Scottish, and one to a Duke who is
Irish. Of the nyve Dutchesses who are
Sottish. two are niarried' to Dukes
who are English, and the Duchess who
is irish is married to a Duke who is

The most striking nigure in the So
cialist Congress in Breslau was a tai
womnan about forty years od ern
a blac.k Sik skirt, a Sery red silik
bonse and a huntress's hat. She was
in e-tendance daily, and watched the
debates with the eagerness of a zeal
otis partisan. She has a curious and
interesting history. She was born
Duchess of Wurtemberg, and chris
tened Pauline lMathilda Ida, and is a
siter of Duike William,. of Wunrtem
serg, a near successor to the throne.
in iS80 a member of the royal family
. tertm.+ r.c. a t.e en &mimi i
at Carlsruh, and Professor Biermer, of
Berlin, was summoned to attend the
patient. Professor Biermer tranferred
the case to his assistant, Dr. Willim.
The young and handsome Duachess
( Pauline fell violently in love with Dr.
Willim while he was attending the
sick man, and insisted on marrying
him. Prolonged family opposition
ensued, which ended in her relatives
giving their assent, finding they could
not overcome the determination of the
Duchess to becomo the doctor's wife.
Pauline thereupon resigned all her
dynastic rights and titles, and by royal
decree assumed the name of Von
Kirchlach, under which she married
D Willim. The clergyman while
performing the marriage ceremony
was indiscree' enough to venture a re
mark on the difference of the social
position of the bride and bridegroom,
whereupon the bride interrupted him
and declared thrt she did not share
the views expressed by the minister.
On the contrary, she said, she looked
up to her husband, whose social stand
ing she regarded equal to :.er own.
Dr. Willim eettlcd in Breslau, where
he pracices his profession. His wife
is noted for her benevolence, and
