CURIOUS AND SOIENTIFIO.
A Long Rope.? W?at io believed to
bo the longest rope in tho . world baa
i beim recently on view at Messrs. Frost's
walk, Shad well, England. It is a grap
nel rope, 10,000 fathoms long, without
a splice, and has beeu made for the
Siemens telegraph company. It in made
of three strandB, the diameter of the
completed rope being two inohes.
Toe Season in Europe.?-The spring
or summer season opened with unusual
ly hot weather in Europe, but soon af
terward sevore cold seems to have set
in. Tho sudden ohange is accounted
.lor., by M. Do Fonvielle, a French sa
vant, by the fact that the earth is pass
ing behind a ring of asteroids, which
absorb a portion of the sun's warmth,
due to us. while it remains above the
horizon. The temperature will not re
sume i s ascensional movement until
the annual rotation shall have carried
our sphere from the shadow of the mul
titude of small planets which iB always
projeotod on the same point of onr orb.
Gulp Stream Soundings.?It ap
pears from the soundings mado by the
Challenger expedition, from' both the
Now York and tho Halifax seotions, that
the true Gulf stroam or Florida our
rent is a limi ed river of superheated
water of which the breadth is about
sixty miles near Sandy Hook, while near
Halifax it has separated into divergent
streams, forming a sort of delta, its
depth (as determined by the use of the
current drag) being nowhero more than
one hundred fathoms. This river rests
upon tho remarkable stratum of sixty to
Bixty-flvo degrees, the thiokness of
which distinguishes the Western from
the Eastern Atlantic between Bermuda
and Azores, while at less than double
the depth of that layer we come into
what is olearly polar water.
'''Iron Direct from the Ore.?Mr. F.
W. Gerhard, of Staffordshire, has lately
introduced a new process by which pud
dled iron is obtained direct from the
ore, tho blast furnace being dispensed
with. Instead of using pig-iron, Mr.
Gerhard employs compound of ore ? of
any substance containing iron, the nec
essary fluxas, and the equivalent of
carbon. A lump of this compound iB
put into the furnace, and by the single
process known to the puddler as '* ball
ing," a "heat" may be obtained in
much less time and with considerably
lesB labor than under the old mothod ;
tho process of "meltiug"and "boiling"
being ontirely dispensed with. The
special features of the invention is the
great saving of fuel, it being estimated
. that 3,760 pounds of coal are saved in
manufacturing 2,400 pounds of iron.
In the opinion of some^iron-workers this
method of making wronght'iron must
very soon supersede tho present, labo
rious and costly mode of manufacturing
it from pig-iron.
Dangers op MethyijIC Alcohol.?
Serious maladies, says the Lyous Med
ical, have been engendered among the
workmen iu two industrial establish
ments by tho employment of methylic
alcohol?that is wood naptha, or alco
hol derived from wood. The material
in uHod in tho finishing of felt hats nnd
silk fabrics. Its action ia directly upon
the mucus membrane exposed to its
emanations, aud also through the nerv
ous system upon the entire organiza
tion. ? The effect is first noticed upon
the ocular conjunctiva, which become
inflamed and injected, producing a sen
sation of s nd in tbo eyes. A copious
flow of ; tears and extreme sensibility to
light'(photophobia) follow, incapacita
ting the sufferer for work. Further
symptoms include-intense coryza and
inflammation of the pharyx and bron
chial tubes, together with trouble of
the digestivo organs. Severo headaohes
and feeling of heaviness and depres
sion are always present. The rigor of
the malady depends upon the extent to
which the person is exposed to thealco
holio fumes. The workman who fln
AeJies the bottom of a hat iB attacked
more severely than the one who pre
pares the rim. It has also been noticed
that cabinet-makers who use the mate
rial in varnish are frequently attacked
with tetanic convulsions of the fingers,
unknown previous to the employment
of the alcohol.
Old Hats' Paradise.?Tho gro
tesque fancy of savages for the cast-off
habiliments of civilized races is a
source' of amusement to travelers the
world over. It is rare, however, that
tho fancy rises to such a passion for u
single article as is exhibited among the
Nicobar Islanders. Young and old,
ehieis, and subjects, in theBe " Summer
Isles of Eden," aiiko endeavor to
outvie each other iu tho accumulation
of old'hnts,*priding themselves on the
extent nnd variety of their collections
ns 'other people da on their wealth of
gold or jewels or works of art. Curi
ously, second hand hats are most in re
.quesfc, new ones being looked upon with
l?iHpiQ?n/ and disfavor. Tho siugulnr
passion is taken advantage of by the
traders of Calcutta, who mnke annual
excursions to the Nicobnrs with cargoes
of old hats which tboy barter for cocoa
nuts, the principal /production of the
islands. A good tall white hat, with a
black band, fetches from fifty-fivo to
sixty-five prime cocoanuts?sometimes
more, as, during tho intense excitement
which pervades the islands while tho
trado is going on, fancy prices arc often
nsked and obtained. When the market
closes,, by tho exhaustion of tho stock
of hate for salo or cocoanuts to buy
them with, the traders usually land
with a cask' or two of rum, and the en
tiro population, clad iu their new pos
sessions, with perhaps a rag about tho
loins in addition, celebrate the occasion
by getting thoroughly drunk.
Transmission of Power by Wire
Rope.?At a meeting of tho institution
of mechanical engineers, London, Mr.
Morrison described tho mode of trans
mission introduced by the Brothers
Hirn, and iiov? oxtenrive'y used at
SctarTbausw), on iha u>por Rhine. It
pippeared Ihn* tboy first used flat mctab
lie oami?, to transmit the powor ; but
ibfae being found objeotionablo, round
w?ro rope was subsequently ndopted in
stead. Tho rope is usually mado of
fine steel wire, as it must bo very tough
and flexible. This wiro rope, which is
about ono inch in dinmeter, and con
tains soventy-two strands, is run at a
high velocity, over pulleys of largo di
ameter. The total loss of power by
friction, etc, was b tat od to be two and
one-half per cent., and it appcaro that,
of 120 horse power existing at the motor
wheel, 100 horse power wub utilized at
2,200 yards distance; but it could not
bo elicited in the discussion how these
figures had been arrived at. It was also
estimated that iron shafting, capable of
transmitting the same power, would in
volve the use of 8,000 tons of material.
Various materials were tried for facing
the grooves of the pulleys, suoh as cop
per, leather, etc., as thero either was
excessive wear iu the groove, or the fac
ing destroyed the rope. The best ar
rangement was found to be a dovetail
groove, filled in with gutta peroha, in
which tho rope soon ma.de a channel for
itself, after which the wear was not ex
cessive. The pulleys run at the rate of
fifty miles per hour, and the ropes last
from one and a half to two yearp.

Wo copy the following statement from
a lino work entitled, "Smoking and
Drinking," by James Parton :
"It is gravely asserted, in Messrs.
Riploy and Dana's excellent and most
trustworthy cyclopedia, that the con
sumption of cigars in Cuba?the more
consumption?amounts i o ten cigars per
day for every man, woman and child on
the island; Besides this Cuba exports
twp billions of cigars a year, whioh
vary in prico from twenty cents each
(in gold) to two cents. In the manu
facture of Manilla cheroots?a small
item in the trade?the labor of seven
thousand men and twelve hundred wo
men is absorbed. Holland, whore mnch
of the tobacco used in smoky Germany
is manufactured, employs, it is said,
one million pale people in the bminess.
In Bremen thero are four thousand
pallid or yellow cigar-makers. In
the United States the weed exhausts
four hundred thousand acres of excel
lent land, and employs forty thousand
sickly and cadaverous cigar and tobacco
makers. In England, where thero is
a duty upon tobacco of seventy-five
cents a pound, and upon cigars of near
ly four dollars a pound, the govern
ment derives about six million pounds
sterling every year from tobacco. Th?
French government gets from its mo
nopoly of the tobneco trade nearly two
hundred million francs per annum, and
Anstria over eighty million franc?. It
is computed that the world is now pro
ducing ooe thonsnnd million pounds of
tobacco every year, at a total coBt of
five hundred millions of dollars."

?About 7,000 of the Patrons of St.

Indiana, together with a few from tho
neighboring conntics of Michigan, met
for the purpose of having a good time
at South Bond recently. Tho principal
event waa an add res' by Henley James,
the' state grange master, who stated
that, though a year ago they only num
bered twenty-eight granges, the_ whole
number of subordinate granges is now
2,100 and rapidly increasing, so that by
July 1 he expects to see Indiana ahead
of any other state in tho Union. He
estimates the membership in Indiana
to exceed 100,000. He gave n skefaah of
tho doings of tho order, among which
he mentioned that it saved $1,000,000 to

?A Patron gives this advice to his
brethren: "Do not meddle with any
business you know nothing of. Have
order, system, regularity and prompt
ness. Do not kick every stone, unless
they lay directly in your path. More
miles cau bo mude in a day by going
steadily on, than stopping by the way
side. Endeavor to avoid all hard words
and personalities. Learn to say 'no.'
No necessity for snapping it out dog
fashion, but say it firmly and respect
fully. A grange of honor respect their
word as they do their bond. They aid,
but never beg. Pay as you go. Never
fool in business matters. Havo no con
fidants ; at least, the fewer tho better.
Learn to think and act for yourselves.
Thoroughly investigate before going in
to any business of gieat importance.
Keep your tables and stands well spread
with journals of scientific matter.
?The papers whioh are most widely
circulated among the Patrons are filled
with advertisements soliciting tr e cus
tom of the granges in New York city

in many instances these cards are those
of trust-worthy and responsible deal
ei s, it is impossible to avoid expressing
the opinion that they ore inserted foi
fraudulent purposes. Great grange tea

" The blood 1b tho life." This is as true as
a mathematical or any other selnntiflo proposi
tion, and one that Bbould influence every phy
Bioian. From tho blood wo derive our strength
aud meutat capabilities. When this source is
corrupted tho painful and Borrow-producing
effects are visiblo in many shapes. ' From our
blood our systems are built up and kept in re
pair. Tue strength of our constitutions and
our powere of endurance aud the withstand
ing of disease-producing agencies with impu
nity, depend largely upon the condition in
which our blood is kept. If it holds iu sus
pension or solution vile festering poisons all
organic functions are weakened thereby, net
tling upon vital and important organs, as the
brain, lnugs, liver and kidneys, tho effect of
tlieBO poisons in tho .blood is, many times,
most disastrous. Honco, it behoovos ovory
one to keep tho blood in a perfectly hoaltby
condition, and more especially does this applv
at tbis particular soasou of. the year. Whon
you purify yonr blood to cure salt rheum or
any erysipelas humor, you not only cure those
diseases, out you put yonr system iu suoh an
unproved condition that you aro not so liablo
to any other disoaso. No matter what tho ex
ternal or exciting cause may be, tbo real or di
rect cause of a largo proportion of all chronic
or lingering diseases iu bad blood. The mul
tifarious for 11 h in which it manifests itself
would form subjects upon which I might write
volume*. But as all the varied forms of dis
baso which depend upon bad blood, a few of
whioh I have enumerated at tho head of this
article, aro oared, or best treated by such
modiclnes as take up from this fluid and ex
crete from the system the noxious demente,
it is not of practical importance that I ehould
doscribo each minutely. For instance, medi
cal authorities describe about fifty varioties of
skin diBoaso, but as they all roqnfro for their
euro very similar treatment, it is of no practi
cal utility to know just what namo to apply to
a cottain form of skin disease, so you Know
how tost to coro lt. Then again, I might go
on and doscribo various kinds of scrofulous
sores, fovor Bores, wbito swelUngB, enlarged
glands and ulcers of various appearance ; but
as all theBO various appearing manifestations
of bad blood aro cured by uniform moans, 1
deem such a course unnecessary. Thorough

tain of lifo, and good digestion, a fair skin,
buoyant spirits, vital strongtb, aud soundnoBS
