r. But he pits to the list
e lowing, viz.:/ Alphabetic writ
ing and the Arabic notation, whieh
have always been -the two great en
gines of knowledge and discovery.
Their inventors are unknown, lost in
the dim twilight of prehistoric times.
Coming after a vast interval to the
fourteenth century A. D., we find the
mariner's compass, and in the fifteenth
the printing press, both of which be
yond question are of the same ciarac
ter and rank as alphabetic writing.
From the sixteenth century we get no
physical invention or discovery, but it
witnessed..in amazing movenent of
the human mind, which in good time:
gave rise to the great catalogue of ad
vances of the seventeenth ceninry. To
cr'dit the invention of the tele
- SCOpe,nd, though not of equal rank,
the a ometer and thermometer, and
another field the invention of
the differential calculus, the all in
portant discovery of gravitation of the
laws of pjanetary motion, of the circa
lation of the blood, of the measure
ment of the velocity of light. To the
eighteenth century we refer the more
important of the earlier steps in the
evolution of the steam engine and the
foundation of both modern cLemistrv
and electrical science. This comlpletes
What is there to be added to this
list? Some would urge that Jenner's
discovery should be included here,
but this claim Wallace would indig
nantly deny. In making such a list,
it is evident the personal equation of
the author undoubtedly needs to be
r6cognized, and different orders of ar
rangement, even if the elements were
the same, wouId be assigned by differ
And now what has the record been
since 1800? How does the nineteeth
century compare with its predecessors?
A'brief examination will show us that
inacientific discovery and progress it
is nt to be compared with any single
eentury, but rather with all past time.
n act, it far outweighs the entire
progress of the race from the begin
ninug up to 1800. Counting on the
same basis as that which he had pre
viously adopted, Wallace finds twenty
c. ont discoveries and inventions of the
* first class that have had .their origin
a i the nineteenth century. against the
-- -fiteen or sixteen already enumerated
of all at time.
- amV'Tan - it a ~f
theory of gravitatior, which comes
from the. seventeenth century, stands
out the doctrine of the correlation anid
conservation of forces of our own cen
:ury, certainly one of the widest and
most far-reaching generalization that
the-mxind of a man has yet reached.
Against Kepler's laws from the seven
teenth century we can set the nebular
theory of the nineteenth. If the first
reveals to us myriads of suns, other
wise unseen, scattered through the il
limitable fields of space, the second:
~ tells us what substances compose these
suns and maintain their distant fires,
and, most wonderful of all, the direc
tion and the rate in which each is mnov
ing. Harvey's immortal discovery of
the saventeenth century finds a fall
equivalent in the germ theory of dis
ease of the nineteenth. The mariner's
compass of the fourteenth century
easily yields first place to the electric
* telegraph of the nineteenth, while the
barometer and thermometer of the
seventeenth century are certainly less;
wonderful, though perhaps not less;
serviceable, than the telephone and
phonograph and the Roetgen rays of:
our own day~
SIn addition to the advances now'
enumerated, the great doctrine of or
ganic evolution, supported especially
by the recapitulation theory in em
bryology, finds nothing to match with
it in broadening and inspiring power
in all the past history of the race. The!
same can be said of the neriodic law
of MIendeljeff in chemistry, of the
molecular theory of gases. of Lord
Kelvin's vortex theory of matter, of
the Glacial Period in geology, and of;
the establishment of the origin and'
antiquity of man, all of our own cen
Nothing can be brought from all the
past to compare for one moment in di
rect application to "the relief of man's
estate" (Bacon) with the discovery of
anaesthetics, while by his discovery of
.antiseptic surgery the name and fame
of Sir Frederick Lister will grow to1
the last syllable of recorded time. In
the mobilization of man and the giv-1

the railways and the steamships of

any elements for comparison in all

coats to Fit H .nchbacks.
*A curious illustration of the ad
vance of the cutter's art is shown*
nowadays in the making of clothes for I
hunchback men. Forty years ago, as
*middle-aged persons can recall, the
coat of a hunchback man was likely to
fall more or less loosely from him,
while now his coat is niade'to fit him,
as far as it goes, as well as any man's.
While the tailor overcomes many ordi

ecretly, but in a perfeCtl legal int-a

uj-ivscj e re
r Seriif -Margarita; and so anxious
was he to guard against the vessel be
ing recognized that he stipulated that
adl drawings and photographs of it
should be handed over to hin, and
hese he burned with his own hands;
noreover, he caused all portraits and
uegatives of himself and of his wife to
2e bought up at any prrice, and these
were likewise destroyed. We are giv
ing here only absolute facts. Shortly
afterwards the ex-Archduke and his
wife set sail for South America, and
the vessel was duly reported to have
arrived at Monte Video, and departed
for a destination unknown. But from
that moment every trace was lost of
the ship and all on board, no news as
to her fate having ever been heard, al
though many a search has been made
long the coast by order of the Emi
peror of Austria and his Government.
Adventurers and treasure-seekers
have been at work, as it was well
known that .Johann Orti had on board
over one million two hundred and fifty
thousand dellars in specie; it is be
lieved that he iutended to have bought
an estate in Chile with the money, and
to have settled there, but that the ves
sel foundered off Cape Horn daring a
a terrific storm which raged on the
coast shortly after the ship had left.
From time to time since then the most
startling rumors have been set afloat
about the missing prince having turned
p; one being that he had been one of
the leaders of the Chilian rebellion,
aving divided his treasure among
his crew, buried his ship, landed on
a lonely coast, etc. His own mother,
who died only a few months ago at
the Castle Orth, believed her son alive
to her very last hour, and expected his
return. The Swiss Government is of
a different opinion, and assumed the
death of the Archduke, and paid over
to Fran Orth's next of kin a large
amount of money, which Johann Orth
deposited as a settlement for his wife
with the Swiss authorities before his
eprture, and there is little doubt
that the Santa Margarita lies at the
ottom of the sea, and that all on
oard perished. -Strand Magazine.

HINA CAVE US THE MASSAGE.
It Is Contended That the Treatment
Came from the Flowery ingdom.
Few people while enjoying the deli
ious sensations of the massage at the
hands of an expert operator are aware
that to the Chinese we probably owe
he treatment. While the question as
o whether massage originated in Swe
den or China has been much discussed,
the latter ecuntry is evidently a strong
claimant. According to long-time
Chinese ideas, life is entirely 'depend
ut on "air currents."~ which are desig
nated as the prinmary aura of the or
ganism; so long, then, as the body is
permeated by the air current it is
proof against disease, and the object of
hysical exercise is to cir'culate the air
rurrent. To effect this the Chinese sys
.ei is divided into three periods, each
period occupying a hundred days. the
irs period commencing at the time of
the now moon. The patient musa: rise
at 4 o'clock .in the morning and walk
